A change of names was also made at the Friday afternoon hearing by the man charged with the. murder. Mar Lun Jung, who was first arrested under the name of Mar Lee Chung. The testimony introduced by the state, represented by county attorney Bridgers and M. W. Stanton," at the preliminary was purely circumstantial, the main witness being Edward J. Ack erman, who testified that he sold the scabbard to Jung -which was found near the body of the dead restaurant owner. Conflicting statements were recorded at the hearing, as chieY of detectives Stansel testified that Jung told him he was sick and did not leave his room Sunday night. "Woo Moo Sing testified that he saw Jung at the corner of San Antonio street and Mesa ave nue Monday morning early. The turndown collar, covered with blood, which was found near the scene of the killing, was introduced as evi dence. Mr. Stansel found two collars, similar in style, in the personal effects of Jung after his arrest, but it is un derstood that the collars are much too small for Jung, which fact developed when they were tried on him. Jung, represented by Ware & "Ware, did not go on the stand, and no attempt at defence was made. "W. B. "Ware's cross examination did not amount to more than a dozen questions. "Woman Testified.

Ackerman also testified that the knife with which Leung Mon Toon was killed and -which was found near the dead man, resembled the diagram of - the daggers which the Chinaman carried. Ackerman described the Chinaman's clothes as being a blue serge suit, a red four in hand tie, turndown collar and a straw hat.

He stated that Toon was cold and stiff -when found. Sing also testified that about a month before Toon's death..

Real Estate Man Suggests Meeting Incoming Home steaders. REALTY DEALERS SHOULD COOPERATE That a representative of the chamber of commerce or a real estate exchange should accompany the homeseekers' ex cursions from Kansas City or Chicago to El Paso, and arrange for the stop overs of the homeseekers in El Paso, Is the belief of J. R. Fisk, president of tlie Great Texas xiealty company. Such an arrangement, he says, would do more to advertise the city's resources and those of the Rio Grande valley than any other possible method. His suggestion is that the chamber of commerce or an organization of real estate men arrange with ' the Rock Island, the Texas & Pacific and the Southern Pacific Railroad company to have a man board each homeseekers' excursion wA"h leaves either St. Louis, Monday marks Ce beginning of the busiest season ever planned by the physical department of the Y. M. C. A. H.' L. Mitchell,, athletic directo'r, has arranged to begin work of all regular classes before the end of next week. Music will be used this year in all the young men's classes, and special j features such as maze marching, gym- nastic dancing, calisthenics and ap- paratus work, along advanced and eli mentary lines, will be undertaken. All j the corpS of jeaders, chosen from among the young men themselves on account of special efficiency, will as sist the instructors. The idea will be to give all attention possible to the individual most in need of the physical benefits of the course, and special sys tem of exercise will be given when necessary. ' Businef-s Men's Classes. One of the most poplar classes is that I of the business men; held Mondays, "Wednesdays and Fridays between 5:30 and 6:30 oclock, just before supper time. Then the strain from the day's business is broken by exercise in com petition in volley and handball, ending witha plunge in the tiled tank. School boys will be given thorough physical examination at the beginning of the season, to "discover physical de fects. In case of serious defect, par ents will be notified and asked -for co operation in correcting the trouble by catering to the physical needs of all ages, and the prescription of exercise diet and rest. Indoor Sports. A certain portion of each class pe riod will be given over to basketball, most popular of indoor sports. A regu lar "house league" will be formed on j a definite schedule, four teams in all I to play each "Wednesday at S:30. A pen nant will be awarded the winning team. This will give all opportunity to enter competitive sport. From that group of teams the rep resentative "Y" team will be chosen for competition with other teams of this citv and other cities of the south- I west. The men will be chosen upon Individual merit basis. The city bas- ketball league composed of teams from the high school. Southwestern shops. Fort Bliss, Military Institute and the T. M. C.

The bitrgest basketball event of the year will be the Southwestern Ama teur Athletic league tournament In March. It will determine the south western championship, won last year by the Bisbee high school. Sneclal ef fort will be made to bring the honor to El Paso. Athletic Meets. Four indoor athletic meets -will be 1 planned to determine the individual championship in the association itself. Gold, silver and bronze medals will be given for those winning the" greatest number of points in the four me?ts. Last year those events proved highly atractive. and most of the local records -were broken. Intermediate and Junior athletic meets will be also held during th season. A grandmldwlnter meet is being planned In connection -with the south western meet in February. The second annual outdoor nhtleti meet under the aunices of the S. A. A. Ft will be held in Mnv. This event last year was won bv the Ne-w Mexico Agricultural col lesre by a larsre margin. The grammar schools will hold their second annual outdoor meet in May under the direc tion of Mr. Mitchell. Tcnchina: boys to Swim. During last July an effort was made to teach all boy mgmbers how tq, swim." Encouraging results were gained. This policy will be continued during the winter season, so that when summer Chicago, New Orleans or Kansas City, and to arrange for the passengers to stop off in El Paso a few days and visit the places "of interest in El Paso and Juarez, as well as the upper and lower valleys of the Rio Grande. These stopovers are permitted on homeseekers tickets at El Paso without additional charge to the holders of the tickets, . and by having them remain here, if only for a day, Mr. Fiske says, it would be possible to create a favor able Impression upon their minds and possibly induce them to purchase lands in the valley. "These tourists are all that the name implies," Mr. Fiske says. -'They are going to California and Arizona to seek homes for themselves and their neigh bors, back in the east and middle west. On their way to the much advertised California, they pass .through a valley equally as fertile as those of California, with none of the disadvantages and hun dreds of miles nearer to market and to the east. By arranging for this El Paso representative on these excursions, and by .having a free auto line down the valley for the prospective buyers, the lands of the twin va41eys would soon be settled by actual farmers, in stead of being swapped from one real estate "man to another." FROM MERCHANTS The El Pasoans who are promoting the excursion of delegates to the Na tional Irrigation congress are making every effort to make it the biggest that ever left El Paso for such a meeting. The special train which -will carry the delegates will be known as the El Paso ajpl Mesilla valley special and -will be occupied by the El Pasoans and .dele gates from the upper valley, who will J board tne train at Las Cruqes and other stopping points. The train will leave El Paso Saturday night, September 24, at S o'clock, immediately following the regular passenger train. Prior to their departure the delegates will parade the streets, headed by the Mexican band. Each man will carry a decorated, carved coffeewood Mexican cane, and all will wear the official sou venir badges, 2500 of which will be taken along for. distribution at the irri gation congress. The train will make -stops at Albu querque and Las Vegas' for the band to play concerts. A diner will be car ried and the El Pasoans will eat their meals aboard the car while en route and after arrival at the convention city, their train being sidetracked and the delegates living in the Pullman cars while in Pueblo. Headquarters of the joint El Paso Mesllla valley delegation will be in the Congress hotel, where a room has been secured" that will seat over 60 people. The El Pasoans will be "at home" at this hotel during their stay at the, con vention. ' J. A. Happer, D. M. Payne and C. A. Kinne of the chamber of commerce are trying to see everybody they can, but if any have been missed, Mr. Kinne will give the desired information at the enamber of commerce t any person wishing to ipake the trip. The committee hopes that the mer chants and business men who are un able to go will contribute something towards the expense of the trip, as the band, hat badges, the headquarters rental and other incidentals will amount to a large figure and it is not felt that I tliose who make the trip should be ) forced to pay all tne expenses. . . time comes again, every willing boy in the association may take care of him self in the water.

The company is building a two story, eight room house in this block at the present time, and the others will be erected as soon as the grading is finished. Declares It Will Not Be Abandoned, and There Is Plenty of Oil For All. HAS DEEP FAITH IN THE FIELD Chihuahua, Mexico, Sept. 17. Dr. C. F. Z. Caracristi, who is here making a geological survey of territory sur rounding the cit5' and who is known to have made and publishedan extensive report on the economic minerals of the Trans-Pecos country with special ref erence to the sulphur and oil fields of that region, when shown the report that the tnree large oil companies in the Toyah district would suspend work un til the state legislature passed more favorable laws regarding the sale of the mineral rights on public school lands said: "Personally, I believe the report simply a fake inspired by a desire to keep the field before the public in view of the fact that the operating com panies refuse to give out information as to the result of their expensive de velopment. While, of course, this policy on the part of the operating com panies' may work a hardship on a long list of promoters, wno have leases and j options on lauds that they desire to irtMi at goou proius, yet it is goou busi ness policy to keep one's affair's confi dential. "But, on the other hand, if the state ment is true that the large companies will appeal to the legislature in order to -force the general land commissioner to sell valuable mineral rights for a song, every effort should be made to oppose the passage of such a law. "The school lands are a public trust and the mineral right should not be sold in the case of oil, gas and coaL The state of Texas snould follow the conservation policy of the national gov ernment. Mineral and Snrface Rights. '"When I reported on the sulphur and petroleum of Reeves and El Paso coun ties in 1905 I recommended to the gen eral land commissioner the segrega tion of the mineral rights of the region from the Surface owing to the petrol eum posibilltles that have since been1 proved. A monopoly of any oil field by any combination of powerful companies is sigainst public policy and the rlgnts of individual citizens of tne state. If oil exists at an, a few sections of land are ample for the creation of wealth for the operators. "Monopoly of tnis or any other oil field restricts competition and enables "C1U """- " "''. - the companies to dictate prices of .the product. The best result to the corn- mun ca" ol ber,df"Ted f rOIUv ? development of the field by a number 01 -lnuenenuciu oueriiiurs. j.ne iiiu- nopoljl of the Oklahoma and Wyoming fields h? Powerful corporations has de- j barred the s?mall legitimate operator from participating in the national re sources of the region and has forced a dictatorial policy regarding the price of oil and its bi-products to the con sumer as weM as independent pro ducer. "There is ample territory in 'the vast Trans-Pecos field to satisfy the ambi ions of many companies, and if the wells are properly located lucrative re sults can be confidently expected. While tnere are large and valuable oil bear ing basins in many parts of this terri tory, not over 30 percent of the field can be expected to become a commercial producer of petroleum. "Of course, it is good business policy on the part of the present owners of the producing "well to keep their informa tion to themselves and to acquire as much more territory as they can and as cheap as possible. Any conservative and live business man would do like wise, but I doubt if any legislature would open the territory,, embracing the school lands, open to entry at a nominal price per acre; that is, unless Mr. Bailey happens to be attorney for the companies. "I am strongly of the opinion that the state should lease tne lands on a royalty basis in blocks of four sections each and force developments."

The Boy Scout movement, which orig inated in England during the Boer -war. has spread to every part of the world and has millions of members among the boys of the different countries. It was introduced in the United States by Ernest Thompson Seton, the woocj craftsman. who has been working in the interest of the boys for several years. In England and the colonies Sir Baden-Powell, the hero of the Boer war. is at the head of the scout move ment and has become a world figure because of his work in the cause. The El Paso organization will be sim ilar to that of other cities where the scout . movement has been taken up with all the enthusiasm of a boy's na ture, and is proving one of the most popular movements ever started in this country. To belong to the Boy Scouts, a boy must be between the ages of 10 and 18 and must take the pledge to obey his superior officers and "to do DELAY ON FIGURES OF CENSUS COSTS MONEY The delay in the announcement of the census figures for El Paso Is cost ing the property owners in fire insur ance premiums, according to H.
