President Wilson Believes
It Will Be Ready in Next
' Few Days.
Warmly Eeceived by the
Public Delivered Every
where Before Breakfast.
EL PASO gave a cordial reception to
the Sunday morning issue of the
El Paeo Herald. The reception of
the business men was shown .by the fact
that it carried 4(H) inches ljJore local
tdverttsing than its competitor, and the
-eception of the readine public was shown
by the interest with which the paper was
seized and read" ahd the numerous tele
shone calls of congratulation received at
Die Herald office Sunday and Monday.
"If s a great paper; just what El Paso
has needed for Sunday morning all the
, tim-" was the comment most frequent
,lv heard. The magazine section ap
pealed strongly to most readers and
te thoroughness with which the news
v as covered, while it excited no sur
prise from people who are accustomed
to. reading The Herald and know the
thoroughness and completeness of its
news service, was another feature.
Unrivaled Xcws Service.
The telegraphic reports of the Inter
national News service, the Publishers'
Press and the New York Sun gave The
Herald a foreign and domestic news
service of an unusually high standard
and without a rival. The sporting
news, the automobile news and ether
Departmental features were the biggest
and best in the Southwest and elicited
the usual favorable comment. The
church news page, the Sunday sermon
djt an El Paso pastor, the page of un
ion labor news all distinct and ex
slusive features of the Sunday morning
Herald received much favorable cofai
ment. The society page of The Herald
contained the news of society's doings
right up to the minute, including the
Country club dance Saturday night and
all the social features of the afternoon.
The Herald's morning contemporary
devotes its Monday society page to the
news that filled The Herald's Sunday
society page. Even a hasty glance
proves this.
Sunday's Delivery.
The Herald was on the streets and
being cried by the newsboys by the
time dawn began to break Sunday
morning. It was being delivered in 'the
yards of regular subscribers before that
time. h$ryf$3? ha?rtb Sunday
morning Herald for breakfast, regard
loss of now early tnat meal was served.
The necessity of buying another paper
on Sunday morning no longer exists.
Herald subscribers now get seven papers
a week for 80 cents a month, a cost of
less than two cents a aay.
A perfect system had been arranged
for the delivery of the papers in the
lty and carrier boys and "sellers' aliKe

i he boys were crying the paper for sale
i r delivering it to subscribers on the
ousiness streets, they were also selling
cad delivering it in Highland Park,
Altura, Alta Vista, Sunset Heights,
t'hihuahuita and other sections' of the
r siCental part of El Paso.
Just a Herald; That: AH.
The Herald made no brags about
what its Sunday paper would be. It
merely announced that the paper "would
be up to The Herald standard. That
it was, the subscribers realized at the
first peep into its pages. The Herald
old not expect such an enthusiastic re
tention as the new paper received, but
the many complimentary things said
of the new paper are heartily appre
ciated and it will be the endeavor of
The Herald management to deserve all
that has been said of it and win further
approbation by increased efficency and
sty ice. The Herald has always had
the confidence of the people; its stock
In trade is the soundness of the friend
ship of the reading public, and it will
always be the policy of The Herald to
hold this friendship without abusing
it. To give aH the news first, is The
Herald's policy. To give the people
all bl gfeatures it can possibly afford i
is another Herald policy. !
The building up of The Herald as a
great .newspaper, for the future, is the
idea of the owners"bf The Herald not
to make what they can today, pocket
it and .get away with it, but to make
The Herald a property that will be
lasting, that will grow greater year by
5 ear. For fifteen years The Herald has
continued this consistent policy. To
do this, it is necessary to keep faith
with the people and invest the returns
from the paper in a better newspaper
for the people who buy it. The Sunday
morning paper for El Pasoans is jus,c
another step in Herald advancement.
The week day paper had been increased
to such a state of efficiency that the
management decided it could afford to
add a seventh paper for its readers. As
the patronage warrants, this edition
will be improved. What the people
spend witb The Herald gees back into
The Herald to make It better. Watch
The Herald continue to grow.

Declares All Political Fac

EXICO CITY, Mex., Sept. 23.
President Huerta declares xue
ntf itndp which his administration
will maintain in the October election is
one of "absolute impartiality," and adds
that it will only take precautions to
prevent violation of public peace and
The president said he would use the
army if necessarv to enforce order.
"I want to declare once for all m
th face of the whole nation," said presi
dent Huerta, "that I shall comply with
the obligations I have assumed. These
have tor their basis, peace and the se
curity of the republic leaving always
complete freedom to the divers politl

impediment from the government.
Huertn's Statement rnzzles.
Administration officials here regard
ed the statement made by provisional
president Huerta that "it would be an
anomaly for the candidate to have a
candidate," as tantamount to a declara
tion that he would not De a caomuaw
himself in the coming elections.
The tenor of Huerta's remarks that
his government would maintain an at
titude "of absolute impartiality" was
interpreted by many officials as a gen
eral compliance, morally, at least, with
the proposals made by John Lind for
the elimination of Huerta and the hold
ing of a fair election.
Among "Constitutionalists' familiar
with the situation, who have shown a
disposition to doubt Gen. Huerta's mo
tives, the news made little impression.
The view is expressed that Huerta has
pronounced himself as impartial merely
to remove the suspicion of government
support to the candidacy of one whom
he might favor secretly. Gen. Huerta's
mention of the army as guarding the
polls, evoked the comment that ind
such manner Huerta would exercise
covert control over the electoral ma
chinery. N'o Subterfuge Possible.
By all in administration circles who
heard the news, however, it was agreed
that the subterfuge or circumvention of
the promises implied In provisional
president Huerta's declarations -would
be increasingly difficult and that the
United States and foreign nations gen
erally, with which it has influence,
probably would be inclined to hold the
Huerta government rigidly to its -announced
The general feeling was that Huer
ta's promises, if carried out, meant the
elimination, not only of himself, but of
other government officials, including
Federico Gamboa. Mexican foreign min
ister, suggested as the proDame cnoice

Tlhe effect othe promises, though
not made in diplomatic channels, is
likely to be of considerable Importance,
as there is a growing tendency in Eu
rope to act hereafter In accord with the
United States.
There is a possibility that this coun
try might ask other nations to with
hold recognition if the election were
not a proper one from its viewpoint.

New York Governor and His
Wife to Testify in His
LBANY, N. Y Sept. 22. While at
torneys and newspapermen are
working their wav through the
Sulzer impeachment trial, a small army
of representatives of the law schools are
following the case closely and preparing
exhaustive reports.
These men are attracted here because
of the few precedents which attorneys
have to cite in cases of impeachment.
Not since 1806 has there been an im
peachment in England and only seven
are on record in the United States.
There was no morning session of the
court today. The senators and judges
were ordered to report promptly at 2
oclock for the resumption of argument
by attorney Louis Marshall, of the Sul
zer counsel.
Renen Impeachment Fight.
Goxernor Sulzer's legal artillery re
sumed action this afternoon.
Attorney Louis J. Marshall contin
ued the argument which he did not
finish when the court adjourned Fri
day, in which he held that the gov
ernor was unconstitutionally im
peached. "With all solemnity," he said, "we
express confidence that this tribunal
will not be swayed from a proper and
due regard of the mandate of the con
stitution, by the unworthy suggestion
that to do so is to permit a techni
cality to triumph. To dismiss the ar
ticles of impeachment which have been
presented to this tribunal, for lack of
jurisdiction, would not be a triumph
of technicality. It would be a victory
of the constitution and the law. It
would be a vindication of that sacred
instrument to which all owe fealty."
Question Legality- c Action.
Mr. Marshall quoted precedents In
support of his contention that the as
sembly in extra session was entitled
to consider only subpects called to its
attention by the governor.
"Whenever an extraordinary session
has been held," he said, "not even an
appropriation bill to cover.expenses of
the session has been attempted to be
passed, except on the specific recom
mendation of the governor. There is
not to be found in the history of any
of the states a single Instance of the
institution of Impeachment proceed
ings at an extraordinary session of,
the legislature."
Not a Judicial Act.
Answering the argument that the
legislature exercised not a legislative
but a judicial function, Mr. Marshall
held that an Impeachment was equiv
alent to an indictment and that the
assembly exercised no other function
than 4hat of a grand Jury. v
"When a grand jury finds an inJ
dictment," he continued, "it does not
act judicially any more than In those
jurisdictions where informations have
taken the place of indictments, the
filing of an information by a dis
trict or state attorney can be said to
be a judicial act.
"It will doubtless be argued that,
under our interpretation, the governor
could not be impeached except at a
regular session of the legislature,
since it would be unnatural for him to
recommend to the legislature at an
extraorinary session the consideration
' Thls " s claimed, constitutes a reduc-
j lion ad absurdum cf our contention.
"That, however. Is a complete beg-
j ging of the question. The mere fact
that the framers of the constitution
have not provided for the contingency
oi tne impeaenment or tne governor at
an extraordinary session, does not de
prive the clearly conceived limitations
on the powers of an extraordinary ses
sion of their undoubted significance,

Nothing short of death can prevent
governor Sulzer and his wife from tes
tifying in his trial It the constitutional
objections of his attorneys to the pro
ceedings are overruled.
This statement comes, from an un
questionable source. It followed weeks
of speculation as to whether either of
them would testify.
Mrs. Sulzer's testimony has been con
sidered too vital to the defence to ncr.
mit her to Temaln silent.

He hopes to show, it is understood,
that gradually he incurred the enmity
of many of the men back of their pro
ceedings and when the final break came
he refused to become a tool.

crats are indicated.
Murphy May Testify.
Charles F. Murphy, leader of Tam
many Hall, whom governor Sulzer ac
cuses of having instigated his impeach
ment, will be forced to take the wit
ness stand, practically in his own de
fence before the impeachment trial is
over, in the opinion of the governor's
close friends.
They say the governor will take the
stand and that his story will cause the
lawyers for the impeachment managers
to introduce Murphy.
At the time of the governor's sn.
called break with Murphy last June,
the governor publicly charged that the
Tammany leader was "behind a con
spiracy to blacken my character be
cause I refused to do his bidding."

VIENNA, Austria, Sept. 22. The
Greek authorities at Koritsa, in
Albania, today seized the mission
schools there. The information reached
here in a telegram from Avlona, the
principal seaport of Albania on the
Adriatic sea.
T8ie Greeks have also arrested and
persecuted a large number of Albanians,
who recently returned to Koritsa from
America and other foreign countries, re
leasing them from detention only when
the Albanians promised to Join In the
agitation for the incorporation of the
district in Greece.
Last week Greek officials at Koritsa
endeavored to take forcible possession
of the American mission school but the
housekeeper In charge refused to hand
over the keys. The Greek soldiers
beat her mercilessly and then carried
her oft to prison.

Sofia. Bulgaria, Sept. 22. The Greek
contention that Spiro Suradjieff. one
of the wealthiest Bulgarian merchants
in Salonlki, died" of cholera, is officially
denied here, the claim being made that
he was placed In the cholera detention
camp after having been stoned. This,
t was charged, was done to remove
all signs of the outrage.
Bulgarians assert that this proceed
ure is common with the Greek author
ities, whose object Is the extermination
of all Bulgarians, especially those of
wealth. Officials in Sofia make the
further charge that 2,500 Bulgarians
are dying of starvation on a desert Is
land in the Aegean sea.
Girl Not Afraid of the

Shortly after 3 o'clock Sunday morning
Miss Richardson was seated on her

and to give the youngster a "lift" in
handling 100 bulky papers.
Long before the sun was up, they

Col. F. Hernandez, of the federal ar

ago from Laredo and shipped his uni

bond. Border soldiers of the American
army seized the trunk, because it con
tained munitions of war. An affort is
now being made to have the American
authorities remove .the munitions of
war from the trunk and send the other

Disputed points between the
senate and house in the tariff
bill narrowed down today to such chief
features as the income tax, the tax on
cotton futures and the general adminis
trative provisions. Democratic mana
gers expected to send the conference re
port to the house by Thursday.
President Wilson told callers today
that his conference with leaders led him
to believe all differences would ba
smoothed out and he would sign the
bill this week. "I've got my pen sharp
ened." said the president.
Democratic leaders from the south
are said to be agreed on the cotton
futures tax compromise proposed by
representative Lever and endorsed by
postmaster general Burleson and sen
ator Hoke Smith.
Chairman Alexander, of the bouse
merchant marine committee, with rep
resentative Jones, of Virginia; Small
of North Carolina, and McUillicuddy, of
Maine, asked the president to favor an
amendment to the tariff bill giving a
5 percent discount in duties to imports
in essels wholly built in the United
States, no matter where owned.
A house provision for a 5 percent dis
count for goods In American owned
ships was struck out by the senate on
the protests of many foreign govern
ments that it was a discrimination. The
president did not commit himself, but
indicated that If the new amendment
did not conflict with treaty rights he
would favor it.
Political Easy Money.
Samuel Untermyer, counsel for the
house money trust investigation of the
last congress, gave his ideas on cur
rency reform today to the senate bank
ing committee. Mr. Untermyer en
dorsed generally the principles of the
administration currency bill passed by
the house last week, but suggested a
number of amendments. He said the
bill guaranteed to the banks entering
the system a monopoly of the banking
business of the country.
"In that respect, the bill is more
generous than any banking system In

Senators Reed and Weeks led Mr.

much of the material embraced in the

Defends Bryan's Tonrs.
During a brief defence of secretary
Bryan's lecture tours, senator Martina
told the senate that some of Mr Bryan's
"fixed charges" were the education ot
several young men.
"A few years ago, Mr. Bryan was
maintaining and educating two boys
from Japan," declared Mr. Martlne,
"and today I believe he is educating
three or four young men."
No other senator continued the sub

and there hear talks on how to live."
This was the declaration of Prof. R.
J. Tighe, superintendent of the city
schools of El Paso, to the ministers of
El Paso at their weekly meeting Mon
day morning. He pleaded for a com
pulsory attendance law for children
and the ministers endorsed the idea.
Xenrly 3000 Out of School.
There are 5200 children in the public
schools of El Paso," Prof. Tighe told
the ministers. "It is estimated that
there are 1300 In the Catholic schools
and 500 in the other private schools.
The last school census showed that
there are 9700 children between the
ages or 7 and 17. which leaves a total
of 2700 who are out of school.
