Brother of Provisional Pres

vor of Chief.
Gen Lul Gutierrez, brother of Eula
lio Gutierrez. provlional president of
Mexico by the Aguaacaliente confer
ence, it is claimed, te loyal to Carrara
Gen. iuia Gutierrez is chief or arms of
the city of Saltillo and his defection
would have been a serious blow to Car
ranza. That he has declared in favor of
the first chief is the information re
ceived by the local Carranctsta con
sulate in a telegram from Carranza,
sent from Cordoba. ,..,
Some days af?o Col Sebastian Car
ranza, jr.. a nephew of Venustiano Car
lanza. and chief of arms at C. P. Diaz,
informed Gen Luis Gutierrez that he
would move his command of 1708 men
against Saltillo, unless Gutierrez de
clared for Carranza. Whether this ac
tion had any effect in determining the
attitude of Gutierrez is not known. His
stand against his brother, however, will
have an Important effect on the atti
tude of other Carranza generals who
have been wavering, it Is stated. Gutier
rez has at Saltillo WOO men.
Hatred I Bier Factor. x
All reports of defections of Carranza
troops to the Villa side are discredited
bv Carrancistas. who state that the
hatred between the northern and south
ern forces will absolutely preclude this.
According to Carrancistas. Villa, from
the very formation of the division of
the north, has carefully fostered the
hatred of both the men and officers to
troops of the south, using as his chie
argument the claim that the division
of the north was cheated out of the
clory of entering Mexico City. It is
V laimed that thisVtred is felt Just as
keenly by the southern troops and tha..
for this reason. If for none ; other, the
troops of the south will fight with
Carranza as long as he Is against
Large supplies of arms and ammu
nition have been received by Car
ranza forces In the last few weeks, it
is stated. - . . .
At the port of Laredo alone, which
is commanded' by Col. Alfredo Rlcaut
B. 000.000 rounds of ammunition have
been received since Oct. . The Laredo
garrison, it is declared, numbers 2000
men. while the Villa troops that have
been reported as preparing to attack
Zapata Capture Supplies.
The repeated attacks on the suburbs
ttt Mexico City by Zapata and the ap
parent disregard for the wasting o
ammunition, despite the reports that
the Morelos leader has but a small
quantity, is explained by Carrancistas
here bv the fact that Zapata has re
cently captvred a large amount of am
munition from exfederals. It is state!
that, at the capture of Cuernavaca by
Zapata, he secured millions of rounds
of ammunition that had been left there
by Gen. Pedre Ojeda, when the feder
als disbanded.
Those who have taken up arms
against the Carranza a-overnment are
now being referred to in official com
munications as "Convencionalistas,"
while the Carrancistas call themselves
Constitutlonalistas. The new name for

Kansas City Banker Dis
cusses the Cattle Situa
tion in That City.
A. Newman, of Kansas City, Is In
V. Paso. Mr. Newman, by the way.
is vice president of the Drovers' Na
tional bank of Kansas City, popularly
supposed to be a collateral concern of
Morris & Co., and one of the chain of
banks which that great packing com
pany has found it necessary to estab
lish wherever they have packing plants
or stockyards, ariu" In many places
where they have neither, but where
they may be In position to finance
cattle producers and thereby extend
their control over the cattle market
of the great central west and south
west. Why Itc Is Here.
While Mr. Newman has not stated
his business In El Paso, from the fact

Tersy between Morris & Co., who are
wiesing a irancnise ior a uit""
within the city limits, and those who
are opposed to the establishment or
any stockyards or kindred Industries
where they may prove, to be a nuj
sance, it is assumed that as one of the
financial representatives of Morris
Co he is here to see that the wishes
of his superiors are carried put, so
far as it lies in his power to control
the actions of those who have it in
their province to grant the franchise.
"Union Stockyards' Good.
In his interview In the El .Paso
Morning Times, Mr. Newman lays
great stress upon the advantage to be
gained by El Paso by having estab
lished within its limils a "Union Stock
yards." He makes a play upon the
word "Union." . ,
what those who are opposing the
blaming oi me irauwiiM: w.
yards within the city limits are aiming
to secure, when they ask that a re
served district outside the city limits,
bo designated as the location for all
the stockyards, packing houses, etc,
which may be established in. the El
Paso district for the purpose of
handling the livestock Industry of the
district, from this time henceforth.
In the interview alluded to above
Mr Newman says: "In my judgment a
Union Stockyards is a great advantage
to any city, as it helps to establish a
cattle market and cattle center." ,
Mr. Newman Ih Right.
Mr. Newman is eminently right. A
Union Stockyards, that is to say, a
stcckyards that will be a Union stock
yards In every sense of the word, will
do just exactly what Mr. Newman says
it will do. and that is why efforts are
being made to establish a truly Union
stockyards on a reserved district out
side the city limits.
Mr. Newman further says in his In
terview: "By the issuance of daily quo
tations the producer knows just what
the market is and he can ship his cat
tle with every guarantee and assur
ance that he will receive the market
A Word Regarding Quotations.
In this statement Mr. Newman Is
rlcht, provided the quotations emanate
from a competitive market, are handled
bv newspapers who employ stockyards
reporters with a thorough knowledge
of the Ins and outs of the stockyards
and livestock games, and who cannot
b- induced, under any circumstances,
to publish any quotations not based
upon actual conditions.
Where a stockyards and packing
house center is under control of a
single individual, firm or corporation.
Of by a close combination of Individ
uals, firms or corporations; where
there is no competition between the
buyers, the market is Just exactly what
those in control see fit to make it, and
tnelr published quotations, arbitrarily
r ade. give the cattle shipper just about
as much idea of what the market Is or
should be as though no quotations had
been published.
But, What'n the Ue:
It is true that, by spending plenty
of money and having friends at the
cattle tenters of the middle west and
east he can have quotations sent him
daily by telegraph from those cattle
centers and arrive at his own deduc
t ns as to wnat the market In El Paso
properlv should be. Even with that
knowledge he could not be sure that
1. would receive a proper Prlcef0";

CM?. Newman further says: '-The Un
ion stockyards of Kansas City have
been a great success in building up one
of the greatest cattle markets In the
world and I see no reason why El Paso
should not take advantage of its natural
situation and become for all time the
great cattle distributing point for the
What In Present Situation.
Mr. Newman Is right when he says
that the Union stockyards of Kansas
City werfc very successful in building
up Kansas City as a great cattle center.
He forgbt to add. however, that for
many years after the establishment bf
the yards theKansas City market was
an open market in which hundreds of
buyers competed for the livestock
brough Into those yards. Has a similar
situation existed since the Kansas City
yards came under the domination of
Morris & Co.? ,
The first stock exchange building In
Kansas City was a frame structure 24
by 24 feet, having six offices allotted
to as many commission firms. Up to a
year and a half ago, when the Union
stockyards of Kansas City passed under
the control of MoVrls & Co.. or so long
as the open market was maintained, the
business grew to such proportions that
a nine story building, 250 by 126 feet,
with 475 offices was required to house
287 livestock commission men, repre
senting 75 different firms, each one of
whom competed with the other for the
purchase of cattle and other livestock,
shipped in by independent producers,
who knew that because of the intense
competition they would get the best
possible price based upon supply and
demand for their produce.

t0That is the Kansas City situation.
While the Union stockyards at Kansas
City was an open market, permitting
free competition, the Union stockyards
were of undoubted Denefit to the city,
and of equally undoubted benefit to the
cattle producers, who, in the very na
ture of things, could not combine and
were compelled to compete with each
When K. C. Flxe'd the Prices.
While the Union stockyards of Kan
sas .City were conducted on the "open
market" basis, allowing full and free
competition, they not only built up a
great cattle center at Kansas Oity,
but they were a check upon the mar
kets of St. Joe and St. Louis and other
points where the trust exercised un
trammeled sway.
Hundreds of cattlemen in the terri
tory tributary to El Paso, and who for
a lack of a market In El Paso have
been compelled to ship to the east, fre
quently, in order to avoid flooding the
Kansas City market with too many oat
tie of one grade, have "split" their
shipments, sending a portion to St Joe,
only to find that they never could
make a sale in the trust controlled St.
Joe market until after the price had
been fixed by the competitive market
at Kansas City and the quotation tele
phoned or teiegrapnea over.
No Difference Now.
It thus can be seen what a check the
competitive market of Kansas City had
upon trust controlled marKets. since
Kansas City has become trust con
trolled, with competition eliminated, it
can make no possible difference now to
the shipper to which market he sends
his trainload of cattle.
In his Interview In the Morning
Times, Mr. Newman says: "The Kan
sas City stockyards are conducted as
an open market There is nothing to
prevent the Individual from dealing in
cattle If he sees fit and he Is not dis
criminated against by the packers, as
has been charged."
What Do They Call Itr
It is probably true that the packers
do not say to the individual cattle pro
ducer, "You cannot trade In this mar
ket" There are many insidious meth
ods of discrimination. They may mere
ly refuse to give the independent pro
ducer pen accommodations on any one
of many pretexts. They may claim to
have no room. They may offer him
such a Tow price that he feels that he
cannot afford to accept it In many
cases packing house buyers have been
known to openly say .to a boycotted
cattle dealer that they had been in
structed not to buy his cattle these
are some of the methods of discrimina
tion which may be employed and It Is
said often are employed.
Followed by Boycott.
It has etn known, too, where cat
tle dealers who have been driven out of
one trust market for any reason, and
who have shipped to another trust
market, as for instance from St Joe to
Chicago, has found that his shipment
has been traced and he himself con
fronted upon arrival at the new mar
ket with precisely the same adverse
conditions which drove him out of St.
Joe. This may not be "discrimination,"
but It Is so closely akin to It that It
will be hard to find another word with
which to define it The packers may
call it "elimination."
lies Its Own Banks.
It has been the habit of the great
confederated packing and a,tockyards
Interests to establish banks of their
own wherever they have control of the
packing and stockyards industries.
Their buyers have been known to so
licit accounts from the cattle dealers,
including the independent shippers,
with whom they do business. It would
be only human nature for them to dis
criminate against the shipper who
would refuse to become a customer of
their bank, who would refuse, for In
stance, to deposit the check he had re
ceived for his shipment in the bank
controlled by the stockyards concern
which had issued the check, thereby
