IHllT I TO
To Cooperate With Chamber
of Commerce in Getting
Settlers for Valley.
The EI Paso Real Estate dealers
will organize into an exchamje for the
purpose of taking care of prospects and
completing the work of the publicity
department of the chamber of com
merce which brings many people and
Inquiries into the southwest.
The plans for this exchange were
tentatively drawn at a luncheon of a.
committee on organization at Hotel
Sheldon at noon Fndaj. The plans
will not be made public until Thurs
day afternoon. Nov 18. when a mass
meeting of the real estate men of El
Paso is called to discuss, and if found
desirable, accept the program formu
lated by the committee. The meeting
will be held in the auditorium of the
chamber of commerce.
Meeting Thurmlay lflernoon.
G. IL Clements presided at the meet
ing and explained that the publicity
department was trying to bring 150
German farmers here from Canada to
locate in the valleys of the Kio Grande
and that he had called the real estate
men together to consider plans for
bringing these colonists here. He sug
gested sending a representative of all
the valleys under the project to confer
with the prospective colonists and that
this representative be supplied with
maps, literature, photographs and cre
dentials authorizing him to quote prioes
and terms to the farmers. He aald the
chamber -of commerce did not wish to
send such a representative unless the
entire bady of real estate men belong
ing to the chamber concurred In it and
he was assured that this was the case.
A committee composed of J. B. Paden,
V. F. Payne, R. E. Sherman. James I
Marr. M. P. Stevens. Dexter Mapei and
II. ta Salle, was appointed to make
plans for an organization of the real
"As It is now," said Mr Clements,
"when a man or woman with whom the
publicity bureau has long been in cor
respondence finallv comes to town,
often from long distances, the best I
can do is go over with them again the
matter covered by our booklets and by
our letters, show them maps, point out
to them the samples of fruit, vegetables
and other forms of vegetation we have
on show in the chamber of commerce
and then hand them a list of the real
estate men who are members of the
chamber of commerce or contributors to
the budget fund, -and turn them out
the front door. The result Is that
many of these prospects who have
made their long trip get into the
downtown district and become lost
"We should have a sales agent or
locating agent as they have at LasCru
ces, possessed of an automobile, over
"to whom we could turn these prospects
to be taken from one emi of the El
Paso valley to the other and shown ev
erything there is to be shown in the
form or agricultural lanas. inis awes
agent or locating agent should have no
connection with any individual real es
tate firm -ana tne prospect snou
IIow to Get Colonies.
"What we are narticularlv intereteil
in now, however, is In getting togther
for the purpose of handling coytaies.
Should a representative of this Gfcrman
colony in which we are interested
just at present come to El Vnko how
could he be handled by the tfublldtv
bureau under the present system You
have it in your own hands tot provide
the remedy." I
Among those present at the meeting
were James U Marr. H. La Salle, a H.
Palm, n. E. Sherman, J. C. White. J.. B.
Paden. D. C Kloss, J. I. McCullough.
C B. Stevens. JL P Stevens and W. F

Mr. El Paso Sutfers With
Goul and Nerves as Result
Of Six Luncheons Friday
An El Paso business man who at
tempted to attend ail of the luncheons
which were held Friday would have
collapsed from a complication of nerv
ous prostration and gout
There were six luncheons held Fri
day at noon and the hotels were so
crowded that it was necessary for the
different organizations to wait their
turns to get into the dining rooms.
The Y M. A. had a luncheon for
the visiting officials who are here for

exchange. The Druggists' association

Dnt will be moving for the new
county courthouse within the next week
or ten days, according to J. K. Morgan,
who was awarded the contract for the
construction 'of the building at a meet
ing of the county commissioners' court
Mr. Morgan's bid of $378.33. which
does not include the proposed audi
torium, jail or elevators, was accepted
without a dissenting vote. Mr. Morgan
agreed to omit the wiring, which
brings his bid down to $164,971.
A disposition was manifested on the
part of some of the commissioners to
include all features of the work which,
based on Mr Morgan's bid. would
amount to J588.S77. if simple windows
were used, or 3687.793 If double hung
windows were installed.
While there is only J42O.O00 available
for the courthouse at this time, it Is
planned to issue scrip to take care of
Clifford "Wants Andllorlnm.
Commissioner James Clifford urged
the building of the auditorium at this
time, while commissioner J. M. Walling
expressed a desire for tthe completion
of the jail on the top floor of the build
ing. Commissioner George Jendell
came out strongly for letting the con
tract for the whole. Commissioner
Seth Orndorff declared that he was as
anxious to let the contract for every
feature of the building as any of the
commissioners, but that the county did
not have the money at this time. He
moved that the bid of Mr. Morgan for
S378.3, less $13,422 for wiring, be ac
cepted. Commissioner Cliffordsecoaded
the motion and when put the motion
Need Meeting Place.
Later commissioner Pendell declared:
"I don't like that order. We are as
food as 1 (alias and Dallas built a JtOO.
00 building with $200,000 cash, issuing
S 400.00 scrip We are going to have
the irrigation and the dry farming
congresses and we need a large build
ing ip which to hold those ' and other
conventions that are coming. The "is
suance of scrip would not work a hard
ship -upon the county. It has been
figured out that a tax of SI 2i on the
$1000 valuation for the first year. $1
for the second year. 75 cents for the
third year, ',0 cents for the fourth year
and IS cents for the fifth year, based
on our present assessed valuation,
would take care of the issue and I am

It is estimated that over S230.000 will
be required to complete the building
above Mr. Morgan's contract and frotc
$75,000 to S100.000 additional to com
pletel -furnish it bringing the total
for building and equipment to about
