POSTMASTEB NAMED; PENSIONS GBANTED Cooperating to have a correct census of El Paso taken, the chamber of com merce, mayor Joseph TJ. Sweeney and judge John Littler, census supervisor for this district, it Is declared, are planning to make a careful check on the work of the census enumerators -who will start taking tne government cen sus on April 15. . The chamber of com merce iias appointed a census commit tee to see that an accurate- estimate of El Paso's population is taken. This 'committee will also confer with J. F. Worley, who issues the city direc tory, and whose staff of enumerators are familiar with the situation here. Mayor Sweeney, upon solicitation of judge Littler, whose headquarters are in Big bprlngs, arranged the districts of the city to be assigned to the enum erators, and also assisted the super visor in getting men assigned to the work. . Upon suggestion jof the mayor, a su pervisor for El Paso will be appointed by judge Littler, to supervise the cen sus taking. Judge Littler, who was here when the matter was first taken -up y ihe chamber of commerce, prom ised his cooperation in any movement J which wumu icvumiiiic me tuucti tuuiu of E3 Paso's population, and since then he has added wo more enumerators to the list. WaHt CeaSHS Accurate. The movement is merely to facilitate the work of getting an accurate and complete count of El Paso's population. This is of vital immportance to the city, especially at this time, and as the city is peculiarly situated, both as to topog raphs' .and population, the work will be more difficult and consequently more liable to be in error. By the coopera tidn of the various interests, it is ex pected to have El Paso appear in the official report of the "director of the census with a correct report of its population. How City Is Districted. In a letter to The Herald, a citizen -who says he is interested Sn having a correct count made of the city's pop ulation, criticises the division of the city into enumeration districts. As an illustration of 'this point, a citation Is given of ithe division north of the tracks. All of that part of the city north of the tracks .and west of Cotton avenue Is divided Into but four districts, the writer says, while that pant of the -city east of Cotton avenue, while cov ering more territory, but with much less population, is divided into some thing like nine districts, he says. It is his belief that (the enumerators in thickly populated districts north of the tracks cannot possibly make any thing like a complete enunvratlon in the time alotted. Thesj distorts contain about three or four times the population of those east of Cvtton ave nue. While he admits that the time re quired to cover the sparsely populated districts will be greater, the writer does n,ot think that it would make a difference of more than 5 percent. This matter was taken up with judge Littler by the author of the letter, but he was informed by him that It was Director of Public Safety De clares That Only About 20,000 Men Strike. Tashington, D. C. March 5. The sen ate -committee on territories Is now in session working out a statehood bill ready t oreport. H. O. Bursom, called by wire the chairman, pleaded in the com mittee for certain concessions which had been eliminated from the senate bill. It j is believed the committee will now grant j Bursom's contention. j The fight on the postal savings bill I has seriously interfered with the work on the statehood bill, requiring the presence of the senators. Delegate Andrews has reintroduced an amended bill calling for an Issue of $20,000 reservoir bonds. He has intro duced a bill to pension Pedro Pena, of Capt. Alaird's Independent company of New Mexico infantry $35; he has also se cured from the pension .bureau -an in crease for John S. Nelson, late of com pany. C, 19th Ohio Infantry, $15. Fannie B. Garrett has bee appointed postmaster at Turner, N. M. Delegate Cameron Is pressing a bill before the public lands committee to promote sinking wells in the desert lands of Arizona. CUMMINS AMENDMENT IS KNOCKED OUT -FOLIOIS -WFTI5 ixeAWN- Senate Declines to Amend Postal Savings Bank Bills. "Washington, D. C, March 5. Cummins's amendment to the pos- tal savings bank bill -was defeat ed in the senate today. The amendment provided that "time of war" investment of pos tal bank funds should be made In government securities. x The vote on the amendment was 40 to 18. The Smoot amendment was adopted 46 to 24. After laboring almost six hours (Continued on Page Seven.) , atmosphere surcharged -with the elec tricity generated by conflict of opinion, the senate yesterday failed to reach a vote on the postal savings bank bill and took a recess until today. The result of this action is that the legislative day of March 3 is continued until today- When the recess was taken senator Carter said seven or eight senators desired to speak and he did not want to gues how many other speeches might follow. The Cummins amendment was the technical subject of discussion in the entire sitting yesterday, and during that time there were many rather acrid ex changes of views. Senator Smoot dwelt especially on the necessity of protecting the credit of the country and appealed strongly to the patriotism of senators in that irtcrest. Mr. Carter strongly seconded this appeal. Both senators Clay and Cummins charged Mr. Smoot with inconsistency In originally presenting an amendment prohibiting the withdrawal of the pos tal funds from the local banks and fol lowing that up with another provision authorizing such withdrawals, should the government need such funds. Mr. Smoot defended his course, due to the fact that he had been convinced of the unconstitutionality of the pro posed .law witliout provision, bringing it within the borrowing clause of the constitution.

The Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Engineinen of 32 eastern railroads have made formal demand on the General Managers' association for an Increase in -wages.' The demand is similar to that presented to the same roads last De cember by order of the Railway Conduc tors and the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen and which is nowJn the final stage of negotiation. General manager Stuart of the Erie rail road refused to accept the demands as chairman of the association, declaring that the brotherhood would have to deal with each road separately as the Gen eral Managers' association had no agree ment concerning wages. The reply was similar to that given the conductors and trainmen. A separate demand will now be made on the railroads. The demand involves about 50,000 firemen on railroads east of the Mississippi and north of the Bal timore and Ohio system. ROBBERS CRACK SAFE IX OKLAHOMA STORE Oklahoma City, Okla., March 5.

C, March 5. 1 a snowsllde early this momiag between Rogers Pass station and Glacier, ea thm Canadian Pacific In the Reeky asu tains, 5 men were killed. AH the vle- tlms were workmen for the railroad an more thnn half of them were Japanese. The men were clearing- away a small slide that had come down early last evening. They were working: a rotary against it when a tremendous slide car ried them and the rotary into the can yon below. At first it waH believed a hundred were killed, but during the early merg ing it was found that many had es caped. All passenger trains are safe, taenia. It probably will be n day r two befere they are able to pass -where the slide occurred. Last night was OHe of the worst ex perienced In the railway section of the Canadian Rockies. There was a heavy storm of rain, sleet and seaet aes snow. Conductor Buckley tind engineer Phil lips, of the work train are among the killed. The slide was tremendous. With a roar like a thousand thunderbolts crashing In unison, it leaped from the Oiclf from Its starting place high up the mountain, uprooting and carrylagr with It a great mass of lee. Trees, boulder and tracks were buried. Hundreds of thousands ef tens of eth er debris in the wake of the avalanche, hounded off the huge heap and half fill ed the valley of Bear Creek, hundreds of feet below. Little hope Is entertained that any of the men In the pathway of the avalanche escaped alive. The bodies of many victims were preb- l ably swept Into the canyon and nsay not be recovered until the summer melts the snow. Reports from Seattle. Seattle, Wash.,. March 5. A special from Revelstoke. British Columbia, says between 60 and 100 lives were lost In a snow slide that burled two rotary snowplows In Rogers's pass two miles east of Glacier at 1 oclock this morn ing. A small slide occurred at 6 oclock last evening and the men were clearing the line when the second, an avaianae, swept down the mountain and engT fed both crews. Details of the disaster are lacking. Rescue parties have been sent from Revelstoke. A Winnipeg telegram says railroad officials say probably 20 persons wers killed in the snow slide near Revelstoke. There is a bare chance, however, that the supposed victims may be safe ua der the snowshed, the dispatch adds. The Wellington Disaster. The snow and laborious worjc of ex huming the bodies of the Wellington avalanche victims was resumed at day break and the list of 48 so far recov ered is expected to be materially aug mented during the day. There still re main 33 bodies of passengers and rail road men and those of an uncertain number of laborers in the snow tomb, and it probably will be many days be fdre the last of these is taken our. Second Slide Imminent. The danger of a second slide Is im minent. Snow back of the hotel Is as high as the roof, but a large force Is working desperately to clear the tracks so the wrecking derricks may be brought through. Great tree trunks carried down by the snow are so entangled with the wreck age of th.e cars that it is almost im possible to get at the bodies at present. Floods Subsiding. The weather bureau believes the flood in the northwest is ended. Last night there was a light frost at Seat tle and a hard freeze in the moun tains, and all rivers are falling rapidly today.

A subcommittee named by the New Mexico Democratic central committee will leave for Washington Monday to jireseBt to the senate committee oa territories objections to the statehood bill. The committee opposes the Hamilton bill on the ground that the pro visions for, .a constitutional convention are unfair and Is hostile to the Bev eridge bill because it gives power to congress and the president to reject the constitution. If the delegation finds that the committee on l-rrltories has completed Its hearings, it will appeal to the Democratic senators to defeat the bill.
