Darrow as he could bring no more
convincing evidence than he had
brought, and on which the Juries
failed to convict, and Darrow was
dismissed. There are few people who
believe Darrow was not guilty, but
proving it to the satisfaction of a jury
is another thing.

postal clerks ran over the Southwest
ern, both ways, between El Paso and
Tucson. On the new schedule they
only run between El Paso and Doug

for towns west of Douglas, while the
west bound limited carries mall over
the entire line, the east bound limit
ed does not carry a mall car. Last
week there was a mass meeting In
BIsbee to consider the matter, and re
solutions were passed demanding that
the towns on the Southwestern be
given adequate mall facilities. Under
the express pouch system It takes
from 36 to 43 hours for mails to be
exchanged at offices but a few miles
apart. Everybody In authority, from

Monday was the big day In the
Christmas rush at the local postofflce,
as regards 'matter mailed out. On
that day there were sent out from
this office five large sacks of pan:
post matter. One sack went west and
and the other four contained package
for points east of El Paso, and were
sent to the terminal railway post
office at El Paso, a new organization
caused by the rush of the parcel post
business, which works over all the
parcel post mall from west of El Paso,
and distributes It so that It will go as
far as possible without having to be
handled again, thus saving much
time for the clerks on the road, and
just now they have no time to lose.
On the east bounnd train No. 2 there
were two extra cars piled to the roof
with through parcel post matter. In
the local office the stamp sales of the
day in sums of less thanl dollar,
amounted to over thirty dollars. The
express companies' employes are hav
ing an easy time, as compared with
