allowed would cause the bequest, esti
mated at J3.000.000, to revert to the
natural 'heirs, claims that it is not a
i eligion, but a business privately owned
rnd conducted by its owners for money
profits to themselves and that the ex

of said attempted trust to result in

"That the business described in the
foregoing, viz. The owning, vending

to the Lower Valley.
Clint, Tex., Nov. 14. Expressions of
good will and mutual interest were the
features of the barbecue dinner ten
dered the visiting El Paso merchants
and business men by the citizens of
Clint at noon today. The barbecue was
the mid-day break in the excursion of
the 1 Paso business men in automo
biles to the people of the valley.
Leaving El Paso at 9 oclock this
morning, the party reached here at

Paso chamber of commerce, being the
principal speaker.
Clayton Talks to Valley Folk.
Mr- Clayton said: "We are down here
to help you nurse the infant industries
of the valley. The El Paso chamber of
commerce does not represent El Paso
alone, but the entire county. We want
you to join with us and become mem
bers. We are willing to help advertise
the valley and we need your financial
support. Every dollar that is spent in
El Paso ajcls the valley.' He then made
a plea foV the early construction of
the valley interurban line and pictured
the future valley as greater and richer
than the famous Nile. He told the
Clint people that it was not the north
erner, the easterner nor the southerner
who would develop the valley, but the
vafiev neoDle themselves. "The capital-
' ists will invest their money here," he
said, "but they will expect you to mase
it increase." He told them that it was
yet necessary to raise ?11,000 before
the valley interurban can be built, and
asked them to help raise this fund.
Clint Man Respond.
Dan Peters, representing the people
of Clint, replying to the address of
Mr. Clayton, said that he could prom
ise for himself and his associates In
the valley that they would lend every
help possible to the chamber of com
merce in all its work.

Gunmen of New York All
Tell the Same Story of
Their Own Innocence.
New York. N. Y.. Nov. 15. "Dago
Frank" Cirofici, exonerated by his
three gunmen pals of having been near
the scene of the murder, took the -witness
stand In his own behalf today to
corroborate their stories that Herman
Rosenthal was shot down by Harry
Vallon an "Bridgie" Webber, Informers
for the state, and not by the gunmen,
under orders from Lieut. Chas. Becker.
Cirofici swore that he was on his
way uptown to see his girl when the
shooting occurred, while the others just
happened to be unfortunately near the
hotel Metropole at the invitation of Jack
Rose, the state's chief witness. He
declared Rose had never importuned i
bier, but had scught them out to con
vince them of his innocence in "fram
ing up" "Big Jack" Zelig. his chief.
Cross examination failed to shake the
'witness. He gave prompt and emphatic
answers: admitted calmly that be had
served a jail sentence for carrying a
gun and had been a silent partner in
an opium den.
Corroborates Other Evidence.
"Dago Frank." hollow cheeked, raw j
boned, with curly jet black nair, tooK
the stand at 10:30 oclock. His testi
mony was an almost word-for-word
repetition of the story told by his
fellow gunmen yesterday, up to the
point where the witness said he left
"Whitey." "Gyp" and "Louie" at
"Bridgie's" poker rooms the night of
the murder. He testified as to the visit
of Jack Rose to his apartment to see
"Whitey," "Lefty." and himself.
"Was anything said by Rose or any
body that night about the croaking,
killing or removing of Herman Rosen
thal?" asked the gunman's attorney. C.
G. F. Wahle. , , ,
"There was not," declared Frank,
shaking his head vigorously. He said
the onlv thing.Rose discussed was the
"framing up" of Jack Zelig, the leader
of the gang, and the shooting of "Lefty
Louie" in Chinatown. Rose wanted to
exnlain his innocence -in both affairs,
said Frank.
The Boys Are From Missouri."
T sifd. Well. the boys are from Mis-
I souri. You better show 'em. "
The witness tnen saia inai nnc T
him to come with" him while they looked
for the other gunmen. They boarded
the automobile in which Rose, vallon
and Chepps had arrived and on the wAy
downtown Rose, Frank said, told him
that he coaWn't sleep nights because of
his worry of being suspected of tne,
framing up of Zelig. '
"He told me he was known as a stool

ply'get the stool pigeons for Becker
and never testified against gambling
houses." , .. .,
Arrived at the poker rooms, the wit
ness saW, Hose told Webber of his dls-
annointment at not finding "tne Doys t
at "Dago Frank's" and in about zo min
utes Bridgie went upstairs and came
back with "Gyp.'

out and returned, he said Rose wanted
them to go to the Metropole to meet
-cohtto ani stAinert (KecKers men)
who would prove that Rose was guilt
less of the frame up.
The witness denied he had been in
the Metropole or knew anything about
the shooting until the next day. Like
wise he denied participation in the at
tempt to kill Rosenthal at the Garden
restaurant. Further he denied that
Jack Rose in his presence, had paid
"Lefty Louie" S1000 as the "murder
"Gyp." "Whitey" and "Lefty" came to
the flat the next morning. Cirofici said,
and told him of th eshooting, laying it
on Webber, Vallon and the strange
Strengthen Mis Alibi.
The witness, strengthening his alibi,
told of his movements after having left
the three the night before. He had
not found his girl at home. She had
been arrested for "loitering" and he
had obtained bail for her.
Frank asserted in his evidence that
the evidence of Giovanni Stanish in the'
Becker trial had been misquoted by
the interpreter, Stanish speaking only
Italian, which is Frank's mother
tongue. Frank swore that instead of
identifying him as one of the men who
did the shooting. Stanish said:
"I am in doubt about this man." in
dicating Frank. The latter credited a
similar statement to Stanish in the
district attorney's office.
Harford Harshall, a lawyer, next tes
tified that William Shapiro, driver of
the socalled "murder car." had told him
in the Tombs that Sam Schepps and
Harry Vallon were his passengers -when
he drove to the Metropole.
DeNrribpR "MvsterinHii SmHErer.'
John J. Hickey, a bartender, told of I
meeting Rosenthal on the night 01 the
murder -with "Boob" Walker and of go
ing to the Metropole, where the three
took a table in the dining room.
"Rosenthal got ud and snoke to a
man named CDay." continued the wit
ness, "then he came back and stayed
three quarters of an hour. A man
named 'Beau Brown joined us. Then
we went out to the street to get some
papers, and while I was reading on
the curb I heard a shot, looked up and
saw a man with a gun in his hand. The
man's cap was over his eyes, but I saw
his long, sharp chin and straight nose.
He was about five feet eight or nine
inches tall and weighed about 1C0 or
170 pounds."
This description fitted that of the
raysterous stranger as given by the
" "Was either of these four men the
man you saw shooting at Herman Ro
senthal?" asked Mr. Wahle. indicating
the defendants.
"None of them was," said the witness.
John Reisler, who has been known in
the case as "John the Barber," testified
to seeing "Bridgie" "Webber near the
hotel Cadillas at 43d street and Broad
way, near the Hotel Metropole, just
after the murder.
"What did you see Webber doing?"
"I saw him running away," said the

No Minor Error Will in Fu
ture Be Permitted to Re
verse a Case.
Minor errors are not going to be con
sidered as causes for reversal of cases
in- Texas courts in future, according to
the ruling of he supreme court of the
state. Only in the case where the er
ror may have been such as to deny jus
tice will a case be reversible on a judi'
cial error, according to the ruling
which has been received by the justices
of the eighth court of civil appeals
from the state supreme court.
Such a ruling, if enforced, upon the
appellate courts by the supreme court,
will be the means of saving untold
thousands of dollars to the state an
nually and also will result in quicker
settlement of litigation. Reversals have
been frequent in the past on mere
technical errors and the new trials
have been costly to the state and to lit
igants alike; they have also delayed
justice. The new rule will militate
against such a condition. The order
from the supreme court follows:
"Austin, Texas, Oct. 39. 1912.
"It is ordered by the supreme court
that the following rule be and the same
is hereby adopted for the government
of the courts of civil appeals .effective
November 15, 1912:
"Reversals. 62 a. No judgment shall
be reversed on appeal and a new trial
ordered in any cause on the ground
that the trial court has Committed an
error of law in the course of tne trial,
unless the appellate court shall be of
opinion that the error complained of
amounted to such a denial of -he rights
of the appellant as was reasonably cal
culated to cause and probably did
cause the rendition of an Improper
judgment in the case, or was such as
probably prevented the appellant from
making a proper presentation of the
ease to -the appellate court; and if it
appear to the court that the error af
fects a part only of the matter in con
troversy, and the issues are severable.
the judgment shall only be reversed and
a new trial ordered as to that Dart af
fected by such error. Provided, if the
erroneous action or failure or refusal
of the trial judge to act shall prevent
the proper presentation of a cause to
the court of civil appeals, and be such
as nay be corrected by the judge of
the trial court, then the judgment shall
not be reversed for such error, but the
appellate court shall direct the said
judge to correct the error, and there
after the court of civil appeal, shall
proceed as if such erroneous action or.
failure to act had not occurred. '
Chicago, IIL, Nov. 15. For a few
hours about 3000 teamsters were on

ever, the employers of the striking men
granted all of their demands 32.50 a

Turks retreated and were pursued as
far as the village of Merabi, close to

a heavy fire that the Turkish officer

to ground their arms. .
