The labor unions are preparing to break Into local politics in defiance of "the ring" organization. A mass meeting of all the union members of El Paso will be held at labor union hall on Overland street Saturday even ing at which plans for the political campaign will be discussed by the la bor leaders. The unions have been preparing for their fight for several weeks, and one of the first moves was to arrange to have the members of the unions pay their poll taxes and receive credit for this amount on their union dues. The Typographical union has had this 'plan in effect for the past two weeks and when the poll tax receipts are shown the holder is given credit for $1.75 on his union dues. Other unions are using the same plan for getting as many poll taxes paid among their members as possible. One man said Saturday that if the plan was carried out inall of the unions, there would be more than 1400 labor votes at the primary election. . Think They Are Grieved. Some union labor folks believe . they have a grievanqe, and they are planning to center their attack on the ring caucus candidates for nomination, they say. Adrian Pool, candidate for recorder on the administration ticket, is a man who as leanings toward cor porations, theysay. He is also a man without family. Both of these are good reasons, the union men say, for union labor opposing his nomination. "Give-a-Dam" Jones is a laborer, a carpenter, and may get support for the office. Around mayor Kelly the unions say they will center their light. Kelly to them is the ring and the ring has not dealt fairly with the union work ers of the city, the union leaders de clare. The mayor Is responsible,-as the head of the party, for these conditions and they wish him dethroned. Alder men Blumenthal and Clayton come in for a share of the union oppositjon.

A clash be tween representatives Johnston of Weatherford county and Buchanan of Brenham took place late yasterday over the "early closing bill." After the bill had been reported favorably by the committee, it was given John ston to have printed. Buchanan asked time to prepare a minority report and was granted an hour. When the hour expired his report had not materialized and he was accused of purposely delay ing it for printing. Another hour passed and still no minority report was furnished. Johnston and Buchanan met at the clerk's desk and the former declared no further time wouldibe granted and reached for the bilL ' The Brenham representative snatched the measure from the clerk's hands and hot words passed, but the bill went to the print er and today is being distributed.

'Alderman Clayton is held responsi ble for the maintenance of a) non union -municipal blacksmith shop. Some More Grievances. The printing of the city's stationery and supplies in a nonunion shop Is still another grouch the union men have against the administration Indi vidually and collectively and the re fusal of the city council to consider the petition of the unions for cheaper gas at the Thursday council mooting is yet another reason they are complaining. A labor union ticket has been sug gested but the union vote will be cast for the men who announce themselves m opposition to "the ring" candidates, it Is said. This vote, augmented by the anti-ring vote In general" should be enough to defeat any of the candidates, the agitators of the movement declare. All this and more will be discussed and rediscussed at the mass meeting Saturday evening at which only union men will be admitted. launch, cigars, and beer will be served free ' SIERRA BLANVCA HAS ELECTION SATURDAY Contest Is on for .Office of Constable in That Town.

B. Cavender, another candidate for the office. At the state election on No vember -8, Duncan and Cavender each received 15 votes- Cavender's name was not written on the ticket and 15 of his friends subscribed his name and scratched Duncan's. Had it not been for election officials in Bl Paso, the name of T. B. Cavender, rather than J. B. Cavender, would have been voted on today, as the printer made a mistake in the ballots. The mistake was corrected at the last mo ment by scratching-out the Initial "T" and writing "J." Pecos, Texas, Jan. 14. The work; of extending the Pecos "Valley South ern railway from Balmorhea, Texas, to Phantom Lake, six miles below the present -terminus, is about com pleted, the grade having been fin ished.

It Is stated that Alpine has signified Its in tention to meet conditions asked of her. Work on the erection of the stations for this new line has-been completed at all points except Balmorhea and Pecos. Work is proceeding nicely at Balmorhea, but nothing has yet been done in Pecos.

Duron's army ls novr said to be marching on Tegucigalpa, the capital. Friday, the 13th, as,, a jonah day, failed to have any effect on the zone of good fortune which El Paso occu pies. The railroads have not reported a single accident Friday and the, Elec tric Railway company did not have a serious accident. The nearest to a piece of ill luck was a collision be tween a street car and an auto In Pio neer plaza with no greater loss than a patch of paint off the auto's tonneau, and the street car motorman's temper. All trains but one were on time in ar riving in El Paso on Friday; even the Texas & Pacific passenger train ar rived on time. Witchcraft Chargo Made. The nearest approach to the occult on the rabbit's foot day was the arrest of Leonarda Herrera of Cuadrilla on the technical charge of witchcraft, the complaint charging that she had cast a spell over a neighbor. This and a check for 15 cents which was present ed at the First National bank for pay ment complete the sum total of the strange occurrences In El Paso on the supposedly fatal day. The local city ticket offices were evidently under the spell of the day, for there were but three tickets sold at one of the biggest offices Friday, and they were for Sat urday trains. The postoffice receipts were normal, no one hesitating to send or cash money orders. The banks did the usual brisk business Friday, checks were of- J up fered and paid, notes were taken and no phoney pamper received. Racing Sports Unlucky.
