Sheriff Wants a Woodrow
Wilson Job Many After
Engelking's Place.
Pie counter applicants continue to
line up for the political preferment in
a federal patronage way. No sooner
had the Wilson election returns faded
from The El Paso Herald screen Tues
day night than a half dosen active cam
paigns were started oy an equal num
ber of patriots for the three federal
jobs which are made by appointment.
Sheriff P. J. Edwards is the newest
applicant for the post of collector of
customs, succeeding A. I Sharps. Sher
iff Edwards has been a "regular" since
he was nominated for the county sher
iff's Job, and the anti-ring crowd pro
claim in accents loud that no "ring
man can ha e an appointment unless
he gets it over the-combined bodies of
Zach Cobb, Tom Lea and Vic Moore.
No sooner had the resignation of S.
Engelking, as United States district at
torney, been announced, than a half
dozen applicants were filed for the
place. H. R. Gamble, referee in bank
ruptcy, was the first to get his appli
cation in for the job. Louis L. Robin
son, formerly attorney for the depart
ment of commerce and labor here, and
now practicing law, is another appli
cant for the government place, and u.
S. Goen, Republican county chairman
and presiding officer of the Bull Moose
meeting, 1b another attorney said to
be an applicant for the place. Although
he was in the Roosevelt camp during
the campaign, Goen believes that his
appointment will be recommended by
district attorney Charles A. Boynton,
who is himself a Bull Mooser. This ap
pointment will be only until March 4.
for the Democratic administration will
then appoint its own assistant district
attorney here. Volney M. Brows, one
of the original Wilson meg of El Paso,
may be en applicant for the place when
the Democrats are in contrpL

Johnson, with whom he was associated
in the civil practice of law here. Ac

king sent his resignation to the United
States attorney general Monday, and
irft TUonrljiv msrht with his family for
San Antonio, where he will engage in k
the practice of law. Mr. Johnson win
join him later and they will form a
partnership, he says.
No reason is given for the deputy
district attorney's resignation, and it
came as a surprise to the officers of
the federal court here. Engelking was
an ardent supporter of Roosevelt and
made one of the principal speeches at
the only Bull Moose meeting that was
held here. At that time he referred to
the coffin which the smelter Moosers
carried-and said that It was signifi
cant, intimating that he expected to
lose his .place because of his support
of Roosevelt. Engelking shipped his
household goods to San 'Antonio and
expects to make that his future home.

had gathered a tremendous speed in

the Thornton car swerve from side to

Just before the disaster, the machine '
careened over to an angle of 45 de-

its uncontroiaoie course. Plunging
down the embankment, gave the for

Sheriff Peyton J. Edwards and "Kid"
Richards were involved in an automo
bile accident Thursday eveninxr at the
corner of Ochoa street and Boulevard
about 7:30. The sheriffs car sustained
a badly bent front axle and damages
to the radiator, lamps and other parts
of the forepart of the car. Rlchards's
car was hit In the side by the sheriffs
car and the runningboard was badly
damaged. A new rear tire was also
damaged and there were other injuries.
Richards estimated his damages at
$150. At the time of the accident
sheriff Edwards was going east on
Boulevard, and Richards was turning
into that street from Ochoa street. The
sheriff stated that he was in second
speed and that a street car which was
on the street at the time obscured the
lights of both automobiles. He said
that several days before, he almost ran
into a buggy at that point, and for that
reason was careful in making that
turn. Both machines, he said, were
running at a low rate of speed. The
sheriff stated that the amount of dam
age done to his machine would not ex
ceed $15.

Famous 22nd Infantry Band
Wants To "Help Save the Babies"
A Chance for El Paso to Reciprocate in
FRIDAY evening, November 15, is
set aside for a double purpose:
first, to help the needy babies of
El Paso, and second, to give the people
of El Paso their long sought opportu
nity to demonstrate their appreciation
of the summer's entertainment by the
22d IT. S. infantry band, and the many
courtesies of CoL D. A. Frederick, the
commanding officer of the regiment.
For the Baby Fund. ,
With the consent and approval of
CoL Frederick the members of the
band, through chief musician Wadding
ton, voluntarily tendered their services
for a special benefit concert for the
Baby Fund of the Woman's Charity.
The bandsmen be'ame interested in the
work for the babies upon reading in
The Herald an account of what is being
done'at the south side settlement house
audi in the homes -of the people, to save
the lives of the little ones. So, with
Sermission of the colonel, they ten
ered their services free of any return,
to the Charity for the particular and
exclusive benefit of the Baby Fund.
El Paso Owes Deep Gratitude.
The concert next Fridav night, how
ever, will be much more than a benefit
concert for the babies of the poor. It
will afford the people generally, of the
city of El Paso, their first opportuni
ty to demonstrate, in telling fashion,
their appreciation of the entertain
ments that have been given the people
all sumVner by the band. The generosi
ty of the men, and of their superior of
ficers, in thus tendering a special in
doors complimentary concert, after all
they have done this year to make life
better worth while, certainly merits

Every detail of the murder for

William Shapiro, the chauffeur of the

On the night ef July 15 last, ac
cording to their testimony, Lewis and
the three other gunmen were as

42d street, where they were held 1b

long enough to make sure that they
had earned their money and returned
to the automobile, not hastily, it is
said, and were driven away.
This deed was performed at about
2 oclock in the morning of July 16.
The scene was at 42 street near
Broadway, the very heart of the ten
derloin. There were not only many
people within the immediate vicinity
of the crime, but almost a score of
policemen within a hundred yards.
Whatever fears the men might have
had about killing another in a bril
