Balph Talpis Claims L. Sa-
maniego Failed to Stop
When He Hit His Car.
Choice Sweet Peas, All Day, Per Bunch 5c
Colliding with his Euick touring car
in which his family was Tiding, Ralph
Talpis claims that L. Samaniego, driving
a seven-passenger Abbott-Detroit car,
failed to stop after the accident, but
continued to drive down the county road
until over taken by Dan Stedham, who
happened to be passing.
ilr. Talpis said Thursday he was driv
ing down the valley Tuesday night.
When about nine miles below the city,
the collision occurred. There was plenty
of room for the cars to pass, Mr. Talpis
6avB. but he insists that the Abbott
JJetroit car was kept in the middle of
the road by Samaniego. The heavier
car struck the Bukk touring car on the
side, ripping off the fender, front wheel
and smashing the radiator, he says.
Continued Down Road.
After the collision Talpis says that
Samaniego continued down the road
without stopping to see if anyone had
been injured. Dan Stedham arrived
toon after the accident. The situation
was explained io him and he started in
pursuit. The Abbott-Detroit car had a
flat tire and was finallv overtaken bv
Mr. Stednam, who obtained the number
of the car only after lifting a case
which partially covered it, he said. He
reported the number of the car to Mr.
Talpis, who filed a complaint against
Samaniego in justice J. J. HurvbVs
court, and the hearing will be held' this
Collision at Five-3Dle Bridge.
A misunderstanding as to which ear

bridge on the county road resulted in
a collision about 11 odock Wednesday
night of the auto of M.v R. Salridor
and L. A. Wright of the Wright Clean
ing works.
Neither car had much headway at the
time and. bevond some slight cuts from
the flying glass of his windshield on
Mr. Salvidor's face and bead, no one
a in lured. Both ears sustained some
slight damage.

District Attorney Preparing
Injunction Against All
the Social Clubs.
The campaign or the district attor
ney's office against the social clubs of
the city will shortly start. A petition
for an injunction against the Cactus
club, located at South El Paso and
West San Antonio streets, will be filed
soon, and this is only one of many that
will be filed, district attorney W. V.
Bridgers says.
In the case of the Cactus club, the
injunction will be asked on the ground
that it is operating without a liquor
license, he says. It is undertsood that
the bowling and billiard features of the
club will not be attacked.
All of the Injunction proceedings will
be based on the decision of the district
court in the Austin Country club case,
where it was ruled that all social clubs
are subject to the law requiring the
taking out of a liquor license to sell
To Clove Other Clnba-
The district attorney's office will
proceed against all social clubs In the
city not operating under the liquor
laws, and information is now being
gathered and petitions for injunctions
are being prepared.
At the request of district attorney
Bridgers and the police department,
the Century club, on Broadway, has
voluntarily closed. The Century club
was recently under fire In an Injunc
tion suit brought by J. A. Robertson.
The jury In the case failed to agree and
was discharged.
Austin. Tex, June 3. Many confed
erate veterans on the pension rolls are
protesting to the state pension depart
ment because they only received J1S.25
for the present quarter, while for the
previous quarter they got JS2. In or
der that the cause for this decrease
may be known and explained, pension
commissioner J. C. Jones is sending out
a circular to these old soldiers ad
vising them that the decrease Is due
failure to collect a sufficient amount
Of taxes to provide for the appor
tionment of a larger sum.
Pensions are now paid through a
special tax of S cents on the $109 prop
erty valuation and this is calculated
to yield something like J500.000. while
the amount collected for the past quar
ter aggregated only $218,00.

El Paso Postal Receipts
Show Increase'Otier 1914
El Paso's postoffice will be one of
the comparatively few in the entire
country that will show a marked In
crease in business this year over last
year. The fiscal year ends on June SO
and indications are that a substantial
increase in both outgoing and incoming
mail will be shown. The amount of
Mexican mail handled has been about
on a par with last year and the Increas
ed hnsihriiis is all accounted for by the
growth of the city.
