El Paso's Pioneer association is to
have permanent headquarters. After
discussing the question for several
years, the Pioneers decided at the an
nual meeting of the association, which
iv as helu Tuesday af ten oon at Wash
ington park, to remold The basement
Xf tre "city hail as a. Iior.?cr.T head
quarters. The relics of old El Paso, the
records of the association and the meet
ings "will be held there. A subscrip
tion list was started at the annual meet
ing and more than $800 pledged for
making the necessary changes in the
city hall basement in order to make
it a suitable place for the Pioneers
headquarters. Washington park was
suggested as another place for a build
ing site upon which could be erected a
building after the style of the early
El Paso buildings, but .IMS' was voted
down as the majority of the Pioneers
favored the- city hll location as the
most practical one for the purposes of
the organisation.
All Pioneers May -Join.
At the annual meeting) whih took
the form of a picnic dinner, and at
which only such lood was served as
could be purchased In El Paso in 1SS3,
it -was decided to change "the form of
the organization from a stock company
back to the original form bf" organisa
tion, which made each pioneer an active
member of the association. This was
done by a resolution, which was pre
sented by Juan Hart
Speeches were made hy S. H. Newman,
judge F. E. Hunter, Juan Hart and oth
er pioneers who were present at the
annual meeting and picnic
The dinner was served in the ma
chinery pavilion of the Washington
park grounds by Senora Apolonia, a
noted Spanish cook, who has prepared
the dinners for the pioneers for a num
ber of years. The menu consisted of
chili, frijoles, Mexican coffee, bread,
tamales, enchiladas and beer. It was
served on two long tables, and the pio
neers, together with their invited
guests; took off their coats and ate the
Spanish dinner without ceremony.
Pioneers Hasvc Many Relics.
An innovation at the annual meeting
was an exhibit of El Paso relics, which
have been donated by different persons
to the association. These relics include
the old McGinty club cannon, which
was given by D. W. Reckkhart; the
stump of the old Cottonwood tree which
stood on the El Paso street acequia,
near the present City National bank
building and which was donated by A. A.
Hlline, and a collection of Taft-DIaz
pictures and souvenirs, which were col
lected and donated to, the association by
judge F. E. Hunter.
Also Have "Gold" Brick.
2Uaps of old El PaicO, city directories i
of former years, pictures of the old
"buildings and historic spots in town, and
a gold brick which was sold to one of
the prominent citizens of the old days,
were also shown in the main exhibition
hall of the fair grounds. It is the In- j
tentlon of the Pioneers association to
make this exhibit a permanent one when
the new quarters are ready, and to in
vite the public to inspect them when
the display is ready.
Officers Re-elected.
E. Krause, president of the associa
tion presided at the meeting) and sec
retary F. E. Hunter kept a record of
the proceedings. The report of treas
urer J. J. Mundy was read and adopted
and by motion of W. W. Walz the same
officers were elected to serve another

Norman R. Crozler, principal of the
high school until Tuesday night, be
came superintendent of the El Paso
public school system Wednesday 'morn
ing at a salary of $3000 per year, com
mencing Immediately.
Crozler was selected at a meeting
held in the office of Dr. E. H. Irvin
Tuesday night at which were present
,trustees Carpenter, Harper, "Worsham,
Peabody, Winter and Irvin. W. L. Too
ley was the only member -who failed to
The meeting was to have been held
in the council chamber of the city hall,
but when the trustees arrived there at
8 oclock they found the building locked
and consequently adjourned to the; doc
tor's office over the Peoplefs drug
store a most appropriate meeting
W. lu Peabody, of the internal com
mittee, placed the name of Norman R
Crozier in nomination for the superin
tendence, Harper seconded It and all
voted in favor. Peabody stated that he
is to fill out the unexpired term of F.
M. Martin to June 1 1910, and is then
to have a contract' for one year from
that date at a salary of $3000 per an
num. o
Employed for a Year.
TVorsham asked for what length of
time he was to be employed and what
restrictions there were to be. W. H.
Winter replied that he was to be em
ployed at the pleasure of the board,
that being the agreement. However,
Winter "wanted the contract made from
July 1, 1910, to July 1, 1911. as the su
perintendent has work to do after the
teachers have finished theirwork and
gone. x
Then Dr. Worsham moved that Har
per and Winter be appointed a commit
tee to make a suitable contract -with
President Carpenter then brought up
a request made by The Herald to ex
amine the poll lists used in last Satur
day's election. John Harper said that
there was no objection, but as the
school board was a returning board at
that election, he did not believe It had
any right to give out this Information.
Then "Worsham suggested that Harper
and Winter be appointed a committee
to investigate the propriety of giving
out this Information. Winter said: "This
seems a trivial matter which can do no
one any good and I object to giving
legal advice on such matters; you can
put that in The Herald, Mr. Reporter."
Peabody then made a motion that the
matter be taken up with the city at
torney by president- Carpenter and thus
it "was ended.
Carpenter reported that some of the
judges at Saturday's election had sent
in bills for $4 each for the day's work,
but it was his Impression that the pay
fixed by law -was only $2 per day.
Worsham said this was so and payment
would have to be made according to
As to Purchases.
Dr. Irvin, of the external committee,
presented a resolution to the effect that
requisitions for articles needed In the
schools be presented to the external
committee for its approval 30 days
prior to the actual purchase and in
making all purchases that bids be call
ed for and at least three bids be re
ceived before a contract is lei, except
in insances where a certain article pur
chasable at only one store is to be se
cured. This resolution was passed.
Irvin then asked 'who would keep
the books and Worsham reported that
this is the secretary's business unless7
a clerk is appointed as suggested by
prsident Carpenter. President Car
penter said that the auditors will have
the report ready In a few days and will
then suggest a set of oooks to be kept
by the school board.
President Carpenter suggested that
the internal committee make a report
as soon as possible before the close of
the schools and the matter of summer
salaries will not be acted upon until
this committee receive the report of
the auditors and other reports neces
sary. The board then adjourned and future
meetings will probably be held In the
office of the superintendent at"the high
school, as nearly all the members live
nearer that place than the city hall.

whether he is a Methodi&t or ar Demo
crat. Hoopes hails from Austin. Hail
is used advisedly for literature about
the El Paso convention has been liter
ally hailing from Hoopes's office In
Austin upon every banker in the state
for the past six months. He is secretary,
you know. Hoopes seems so young to
be holding such a responsible position
that he hesitates to talk before a crowd
of mature bankers. But when he does
get going with that third rail brand of
oratory he has stored aw,ay in his think
tank, there is no stopping him. Hoopes
is a good looking chap, which is saying
a great deal In such a collection of
handsome bankers as are assembled in
El Paso this week. ,To look at Hoopes,
standing up there on the platform and
hitting It up like a Golden State limited
going across the desert, is to ponder
upon the great truth that some are
born to be bankers and others get
there because of the gray matter car
ried In their conning towers. Hoopes is
of the latter class.
J. N. Porter, of Globe, looks as if he
might be easy money for some over
draft fiend. Those gentle lilacs on his
face, the soft wave of his almost gray
hair and the benevolent expression in
his eyes give him the "paternal appear
ence of a boy's school principal. But
behind those smiling eyes there Is a
little gleam and under that gray beard
is a chin which has the "nothing doing"
sign out when it comes to overdrafts
and extensions around J. N.'s bank at
Globe. Mr. Porter brought little J. N.,
jr., along to see the fun and has been
showing him everything there is to see
around El Paso. The miniature banker
was present at the smoker Tuesday
night and took In everything with wide
eyed wonderment. He has freckles on
his face as big as cookies and the same
gentle look out of his eyes that his
father has. And that Porter chin is be
ginning to develop and the overdraft
fiends of the future are going to collide
with it when the elder J. N. retires In
favor of the J. N. II.
H. R. Eldridge Is big. Big of feet,
hands, frame and face. He has about
200 pounds on board and would uot run
smoothly with less. He has a voice
A which booms like a bass drum and when
he is speaking he seems to be weighing
each word as If it was an endorsement
on a new customers' check. The climate
around Houston seems to be hard on
hair, for few of the "east Texas boys
have any too -much. Eldridge has just
enough but not one hair to spare. He
parts it carefully and makes It cover
all the space the traffic will stand. But
he never will be accused of being a
low brow. His forehead has a fine
chance to shine and shine it does like
the prow of a battleship. There is
something besides wheels behind that
brain dome, too. When the voice booms
forth there is something to what
Eldridge says besides noise.

Tom Slack Is Irish. The tilt of his
nose, the fire of his eye and the Blarney
burr in his voice screams this fact to
the world. Nature did not stop there
with happy Tom. He was given a wit
which is as sparkling as any that ever
came over from the old countree. Tom
Is not one of these phonograph enter
tainers who has to be telling all of the
stories in order to be enjoying himself.
He can listen as well as tell stories,
which Is the fine art of story telling.
Tom's wit is as harmless as phe prattle
of a child. He Is for fun only and no '
one ever heard of Slack saying any
thing to hurt another's feelings. He has
a rapid fire delivery way of telling his
stories, which keeps the Interest up all
the time and the point is right there
when the gong rings.
The word detective recalls visions of
disguises, tomato can stars and false
mustaches. That may be the way they
detect in Nick Carter's wonderful works,
but W. A. Boyd, of Cleurne, who is de- '
tective for the Bankers' association,
uses another and more effective method.
He goes after the yeggmen and check
pushers and stays after them until he
gets them. Detective Boyd has the fin
est head of silver (gray hair at the con
vention. He is a "fexan of the kind who
could be picked out in the biggest
crowd in the world. All he needs is a
pair of high heeled boots to make him
look like a well to do cattleman in the
grazing land country. Onco Boyd got
after a notorious check shover and
chased him up into Oklahoma, where he
landed his man. Governor Haskell
could not see things as the Texan did
and he refused to Issue a warrant for
the crook's removal. That was the only
man Boyd ever let get away and hei re
turned to Cleburne broken hearted. He
is as indispensable to the Texas bank
ers as a time lock or a safety dating
stamp. They just could not do business
without him. It Is not what he does so
much as what he keeps others from
doing. Bank workers all over the
country are wise to the quiet mannered
man with the steel gray eyes. He is
worth his weight In gold cerliflcates
several times over. If this statement Is
doubted just ask any of the bankers
what they would do without detective
Boyd. There is no answer.

Once upon a time, a trade excursion
left El Paso. It went through Duran,
N. M., on its wanderings over the terri
tory. Duran at that time, which was
not so very long ago, consisted of a
general store, a few houses and a lot of
scrub cedar. W. S. Holloway, cashier
of the Duran Trust T& Savings bank,
is here attending the convention as the
representative of the Duran bank. The
general store has been flanked by
others, the houses have multiplied until
Duran is no longer confined to a single
street. The scrub cedars have given
uay to the stores and residences. Duran
has arrived.
It taks nerve to wear a red tie. Not
one of these little weak sisters that are
an apology for the color, but a good,
healthy scream of a tie that looks like
a third alarm sounds. N. E. Plumer, of
Tucson, is the man behind the tie. He
not only has the nerve to wear the tie
tut actually wears It right around his
neck with a gold and pearl effect of a
tie pin stabbed into its very vitals. But
it takes nerve to run a bank in these
days of overdue notes and extensions,
overdrafts and foreclosures. Mr. Plumer
Is representing the Southern Arizona
Brnk &. Trust company of Tucson and
the S. A. B. & T. C. has some repre
sentative at this convention. They
could not have sent along a brass band
and attracted more attention than N. E.
has attracted with that red tie. As far
as known he is the only representative
of El Paso s s,lster city on the west and
he is gettingYaway wHh the representa
tive business like a professional dele
