E. el paso Hotels AXili 3?ILIiINGr UP Every notel in the city is full, or nearly full, and the week end will make them fuller. A combination of El Paso Fair visitors, already arriving, doctors of the International Medical society, in session here, and generallj- heavy traf fic has done it. Absence of the Sheldon hotel leaves a void in the city's hnstlery capacity, previously none too large. With the opening- of the fair thres days awaj, visitors already are seeking quarters in boarding houses, where there is am ple room.

Foot Passengers the Chief Suffers in Cities, But in Eural Districts the Automobilists Themselves Furnish a Majority of the Victims Slaughter in Motor Racing. F7IGURES recently gathered by the teaerai -government, from one point or view, is a very expensive inven tion. It is a great source of pleasure" to multitudes of people, and an im portant aid to civilization, but the toil it takes of human lives is nothing short of frightful. Very Destructive. As the motor car has srown more (popular, it has naturally become more I destructive. In the year 1906 automo j biles killed 3GC persons in this country. In 1907 they took 588 lives. In 1908 1 they wiped out 786 people. ijiebe are vae ugures oi tne census, wrhi.?h estimates Uiat, at a rough guess, 1000 persons will be killed by motor pars in the United States during1 the 12 fnonths of 1910. It would he close to the -truth to say that the automobile in this country costs three lives a day. The tax is undeniably a heavy one. In rural districts the chief sufferers are the automobilists themselves the most common kind of accident they erf counter being collisions with railroad trains. One might suppose that drivers of motor cars would be so on their guard against dangers of this particular sort that such happenings would be rare, but the fact is that they are of constant oc currence as one may perceive by an at tentive perusal of the newspapers from day to day. Racing With Trains. Xothing is more common than to hear of instances in which automobiles have deliberately raced with locomotives, the object in view being to get over the crossing before the arrival of the train at that point. It is literally a race with j death, and must be extremely exciting; j but most people would rather get their excitement in some less hazardous way j On the other hand, most fatal auto mobita accidents in cities find their vie tiros in foot passengers who are run over on the streets. During six weeki in uctousr ana jsovemoer or last vear i 17 children were killed in this manner ! serve how the sober and sane minded in Greater Xew York. Indeed, mortality ' everyday citizen is affected morally bv from this cause in lare centers of pop j the nabit of driving an automobile. His ulation is largely among boys and girls, J customary caution, in many instances, a great majority of whom have no ; gives way to a recklessness altogether playgrounds other than the streets, and astonishing. Ordinarily most consider are obliged to take their chances with I ate of other people, he becomes, as a the motor cars, dodginjr them as thev I motorist, crossly indifferent to thn I come along. New York Slaughter. Sixty-eight persons were killed by au- tTnohilp in firpntf..- Pir Vort- a,, the vear 1909 just about half of this number meeting their tranric fate on lanhatlan island. In many of these j cases, where people were run over, the j drivers of the cars were probably not j to blame. It is difficult to run a gaso line propenea. venicie xnrouga a city wheels. But who; a generation ago, crowaed with tramc on loot and on could liaYe imagined that the time would eter arrive wuen locomotives wouia oe allowed to run on the streets-: and not on rails, at that? A custom long established among the prudent demands that before attempt ing to cross a railroad, one shall paus and look both ways, to make sure that no train is coming. If a train is seei approaching, even though it be a con J siderable distance away, one waits unti' it has passed. But in these das an important city street is more dangerou3 to cross than a railroad especially in view of the circumstances that autonuv biles are not restricted to tracks. A motor car may even whisk unexpectedl around a corner at any moment, catch ing the wayfarer unawares. But people ordinarily do not wait : the- simply t3e their chance5, and dode. Occupants Sufferers. They do not alwa3's escape, however, as the mortalit' records show. But it is interesting to learn that, taking tl whole country over, two out of ever three automobile victims are occupants of the cars which suffer the accidents. Some are killed in collisions with loco motives, in the manner already describ ed ; others are upset while soing at lril) speed (the vehicle often ''turning tur tle") ; still others run over embank' ments, and yet others are blown un bj explosions of gasoline. There are a good many ways of d3'ing in a motor mishap. It goes without saying that a great majority cf the fatal accidents to peo ple riding in automobiles are attribut ( able to fast driving. Most nersons who drive 6uch vehicles have little or no knowledge of mechanics, and lack the special training which would enable them to tlo the right thin? quickly and instinctively in a perilous emergency The average man is elated by the abilit to command superhuman speed by the touch of a finger. He uses this marvel ous power recklessly, not realizing the danger, and it i3 not surnrising that in frequent instances he should bring de struction upon himself and others. The Speed Maniac. This is what is called the ffspeed maniac." Put a great force in the hands of an ignorant person a description ap plicable to very many motorists and he will surely misuse it. If he himself were the only sufferer, one might be resigned; but he kills other people. Oh, yes; it happens every day. And is this dangerous individual punished? Not at all. He pays a small fine, perhaps, and goes on his way rejoicing. The law rarely makes any attempt to inflict a penalty for misdeeds of the kind. In fact, jail sentences for such of fences are almost unknown. The court records everywhere show an amazing lack not only of convictions in cases of the sort, but even of indictments for automobile killings. They can harder be said to be rated as anything so im portant as misdemeanors. Xo wonder, then, that thev continue. Manslaughter iby automobile is today the safest of all forms of crime the term being not in the slightest degree inappropriate where, as so often happens, a deliberate indif ference to putting others' in eril is ac countable for the fatality. Any observant individual is in a posi tion to notice that the average driver of an automobile is not accustomed to pause in order to avoid running over a foot passenger on the street-. As a mat ter of fact, at crossings, the foot pas senger has the right of wav- but to this the motorist pavs no regard. He '"honks" his horn, and, if the unfortun ate pedestrian does not get out of the way, so much the worse for him. Only the other da3T an old man in the citv of Washington was mn down and killed i in exactly this manner. He could not Sucb things are constant!- happening. The Right of Way. Wiry should the motorist consider that he always, and under all circumstances, has the right of way? It is because he possesses the force majeure, and nobody is in a position to dispute with him. By no means let it be said that a maiority of automobile drivers are indifferent to the rights of others; but certain it is that a large percentage of them are so, the traitbeing most strikingly exhibited by the individual who. as the represen tatives of a tj'pe only too common, has come to be known as the 'Toad hog." He cares for nobody. If he makes an "accidental" killing, his conscience does not trouble him in the least. hat bus iness had the idiot to be in the way? If practicable, he runs for it, leaving the victim to take hi chances, and usually escapes. h Onlj- a few weeks ago, in the outskirts of Manhattan borough (New York eitv. a couple of men in a touring car, ac companied by three or four women, after dark in the evening going at great speed, ran through a group of four men, knocking them down and killing two. When a policemafn, standing near by, tried to halt them, they kept rip-hc o the women yelling back with' jeers of derision. Of course, they got away, and were never caugnt or punished. Drinking and Speedme. Drunk? Doubtless, j'es. But this is one of the principal causes of automo bile killings. People go out in automo biles for pleasure; they stop, quite as a matter of course, tor drinks. The alcoholic refreshments they imbibe maJ-c them reckless, and, on their way home the feeling on board is that it matters not whether school keeps or not. But it matters quite a good deal to the luckless victims whom they run over. This sort of thing is unquestionably ac countable for a considerable percehtagp or the deaths from, motor accidents. Jlost remarkable it is, however, to ol- rights of bis fellow beincrs. When his 'attention is called to an obvious viola- tl0n ,of fuch r&hts " himself, he laughs, and looks upon it as a ioke. When rmn s driving an automobile, one is too bus- with the business of "getting there" to bother with ethical obstacles. Many Are Killed.

Another frequent cause or fatal acci dent is turning at high speed, ui course, it is a bcre to slow up at a wise in a road, but to do s6 is onty ordinary prud ence. If this be not done, the wheels are liable to slip the process is tech nically known as '"skidding" and all control over the direction of the vehi cles course is lost until the wheels "rip the road again.
