In the action of the people of El Paso
vs. the insurance companies of Texas
the plaintiffs are to be represented
when the case is called by the state fire
rating beard on June 21 -ay senator
Claude B. Hudspeth and former mayor
J. U. Sweeney. Both have been retained
as counsel for the people of El Paso
and a committee composed of A.

vac attenaea by 50 earnest business
ai.d professional men determined that
the city should have justice at the J
lands of the insurance companies. As
representative W. A. McGown stated in
LI brief talk following senator Hud-
s.itth's report the case was no longer
one of law or legal points but a ques-
t.on of facts and upon these facts the
whole situation would find its solution.
Equity is what the business men are
aking for from the rating board and
d manding from the Insurance com-
1 anies and from the attitude of the
governor and attorney general the
1 eople may expect the fairest- treatment
from the state officials and ' the fire

at Austin next Tuesday. .
To Give the Real Facts.

actually in effect before the rates made
possible by the new fire insurance law
were applied. Figures will also be
submitted by the attorneys for the peo-
ple showing the amount the fire in-
surance companies collect from El Paso
and the amount paid out In losses. De-
tailed descriptions ofall business risks
are also to be obtained from the act-

Dallas Tex- June 13. The Republi-
can state executive committee met here
today for the purpose of selecting the
place of meeting for the republican state
convention and to discuss the personnel
of the state ticket nvhich will be .put in
the field in opposition to the Democrats.
Dallas was selected as the place of
holding the state convention of the Re-
publican party this year by the execu-
tive committee of that organization in
session at the Southland hotel here
this morning.
The date of the convention was fixed
for August 9. All members of the com-
. ere present or represented by

--w r-" w - . -. .- i
The Republicans express the nrm De
liVf that the Democrats wall nominate a
TT-.nh51ritionist. either Johnson or Pom-
dexter on a submission platform. If j
that -proves to be the case they are of
the opinion that a strong Republican
ticket would stand an excellent chance
of winning at the fall election and would
at least make the best showing the
party has ever made in Texas.
In case sub-mission is written m the
platform and a prohibitionist should be
nominated the Republicans propose to
make a. liard fight in southwest Texas
especially to elect Republican state sen-
ators and members ot die house or rep-
resentatives and to make a hard fight to
defeat Garner in the 15bh congressional
district and Slavden in the 14th district.

also to draw up a comparative state-
ment of individual risks showing the
old rates and the new rates: also to as-

G-REAT FUTURE FOR
CEMENT IN MEXICO
The Freeborn Engineering company
of Kansas City according to the Kan-
sas City Star has been awarded the
contract for the construction of a large
Portland Cement plant at Juarez state
of Chihuahua Mex.. fc the Interna-
tional Cement company.
The personnel of the new company is
not mentioned. However it is said that
under the supervision of E. H. Devore
a well known mining engineer former-
ly of El Paso considerable exploratory
work and sampling has ben going on
in the mesas and foothills between the
river and ti.e mountains north of the
city of Juarez which the Mexicans call
"La Cemente" and that assurances have
been given that operations are to be
inaugurated soon in building a large
Confirms Report.
Bernard Schuster one of the owners
of the land on which the new plant is
to be erected stated to a Herald re-
reporter that the statement in the Kan-
sas Star is correct and that operations
in the construction of the plant will be
MmmMM(i within the next 90 davs. It
wIii Dp erected on the level grounds
above the city of Juarez about two
miles from the old church and will
have a capacity of 2000 barrels a day.
A number of El Paso people are Inter-
ested but the principal Investors are
Kansas capitalists who are already
largely interested in the manufacture
of Portland cement.
Schuster states that the Importations
into Mexico last year amounted to 1-
200000 barrels and that the importa-
tions came mostly from Germany and
Belgium. The duty on Portland cement
is 75 cents gold or one and one half
dollars Mexican money per barrel and
the duty from Mexico into the United
States Is 30 cents gold per barrel.
Land Is Excellent.
On the land surrounding the site of
the new nlant almost ODnosite old Ft.
Tiio! .. .....: n.
boulders and gravel that will be mined
with steam shovels which analysis
have shown are almost natural ce-
ment. This will reduce the cost of
mining to a minimum.
In addition to the lime which con-
stitutes over 63 percent of the neces-
sary ingredients of cement as shown by
the analyses of the various cements
made In the United States;. the balance
of the material useu being aluminum
and silica and this is found In large
quantities in the shales along the river
bank and in the mountain south of
Juarez on the lands of the new com-
pany. These lands begin at the old in-
ternational dam opposite Hart's Mill
and extend south westward to the
snales and limestones across the river
west of the smelter for the purpose of
presenting the data to German capital-
ists who were figuring on establishing
cement factories In Mexico. In his re-
port he said:
First: Thickness of limestone ex-
posed 75 feet and probably extending
down deeper; physical characteristics
hard and compact.
Analysis: Carbonate of calcium 91.1
percent; insoluble clay matter 1.7 per-
cent; soluble alumina and iron 0.4 per-
cent; magnesia none.
Second: Thickness of sbale 100 feet
where developed and maybe much
thicker below; physical characteristics:
partly shaly and partly finely laminated.
Analysis: Carbonate of calcium 9.1
percent; insoluble clay matter 74.9 per-
cent; soluble alumina and iron oxide
5.9 percent.
Prof. Keck pronounced the shales and
adjacent limestones as ideal for mak-
ing Portland cement.
Mexico "Wants Cement.
A. L. M. Gottschalk. United States
consul general at Mexico City says:
'"There Is practically an unlimited fu-
ture for the use of concrete as a build-
ing material in Mexico especially for
the hollow concrete block. TheVe are
over 20 manufacturers of concrete
blocks or ornamental work in Mexico
City alone. Ornamental cement work
is gradually supplanting the old-fashioned
carved stone work which charac-
terized all pretensious buildings until
reecnfly. " Sewer pipes concrete roof-
ing; reinforced cement buildings and
foundations are In increasing demand.
There are at present three cement
'manufacturing plants In Mexico one in
Dublin sate of Hidalgo; one in the
outskirts of Mexico City and a third in
Monterey. The Dublin plant originally
with a capacity of 1000' barrels a month
has been increased to 1000 barrels .per
day.
Large Imputations.
"Germany appears to have been the
chief source of importations owing
probably to her cheap ocean freights
also Belgium and England. One Amer-
ican concern sends large consignments
to Mexico regularly. Six hundred thou-
sand barrels was the total Importation
into Mexico for the year 1905. The
next year it increased to 750000 barrels;
In 1907 it grew to over 1000000 barrels
and it is believed to amount to nearly
double this amount the past year. The
Mexican government imported for pub-
lic improvement uses from Europe dur-
ing one year 520000 barrels of cement."
Montreal .Can. June 13. The bodies of 20 bindery jrlrlH and linotype men were bnried beneath tons of -wrecked
machinery and debris In the basement of the Herald building vrlileb burned todny. Jinny girls met death by slor
torture.
The flames crept slowly upon th em as they Iny helpless.
The -victims were carried down through the building by a huge tank which plunged from the roof to the cellar.
Thirty are injured several fatally.
Almost instantly there was an explosion of gas from the pipes. Scores of persons in the editorial and other
departments had to fight for their lives through the smoke and wreckage. The fire department could make little
progress against the Increasing flames.
Cries of the buried victims rose over the shouts of the firemen nnd the crowd.
The police bended by a volunteer party which was protected by a water curtain formed by streams from the
fire hose tried to enter the building.
"With the opening of the doors the groans and cries of those pinned In the ruins heenme more distinct. But
just within a wall of flame suddenly arose. Gradually the cries died out.
All attempts at rescue soon had to be abandoned.

THE RECEPTION
FOR HOMECOMING-
On Board Kaiserln Augusta Victoria
by way of wireless to Crookhaven Ire-
land June 13. Theodore Roosevelt was
the chief figure of a noteworthy scene
in the steerage yesterday afiernoon
when he attended a Catnolic service held
for 1200 emigrants Russians and Gall-
cian Poles. The emigrants surrounded
the altar draped .t. American flags and
chanted the litany. Then Roosevelt wel-
comed them to America and gave them
advice against associating with strang-
ers on landing. He exhorted -them to
be mindful of the duties "of citizenship
and protect the rights of women. The
emigrants crowded around him at the
conclusion and tried to kiss his hands.
Today he addressed the crew and
stokers and tomorrow will hold a re-
ception for the first and second cabin
passengers.
The Great Reception
New York June 13. Arrangements
for the reception of Mr. Roosevelt are
coinpleteed.
The reception tendered Gen. TJ. S.
Grant when he returned from his tour
of the world was the talk of a decade.
The wonderful outpouring that greet-
ed admiral Dewey and his victorious
sailors when they came back from the
winning of the Philippines is still an
event of national pride-
But if present prospects materialize
"Teddy day" Saturday June 18 will
overshadow both in the magnificence of
the greeting to be accorded the return-
ing hunter.
That a million visitors are expected
in New York is not an exaggeration.
Hotel men report that reservations
have been made for all rooms on that
date and that those who apply later
must take their "chances of getting a
place to rest.
It will be no military pageant that
will greet America's foremost citizen.
There will be no marching of uniformed
clubs with streaming banners and blar-
ing bands to be reviewed by Col.
Roosevelt. Instead the expresldent will
do the parading to be reviewed by his
fellow men.
Republicans and Democrats alike will
turn out to welcome Roosevfelt the
citizen Roosevelt the hunter Roosevelt
the lecturer; Roosevelt the politician
will be relegated.
Reception Committee of 300.
The Roosevelt reception committee
composed of 300 of the leading citizens

Pinchot's Attorney Claims
That He Is Regardless of
Merits of Controversy.
NOT A FRIEND
OF CONSERVATION
Washington D. C. June 13. Briefs
were filed by attorneys in the Ballin-ger-Pinchot
Investigation committee to-
day. The committee will assemble Sat-
urday to prepare for its deliberations.
""We trust that the committee will
record their definite conviction that the j
immediate care of the public ?ma!n is
now in unsafe hands" says attorney
George "W. Pepper counsel for .Gifford
PInchot in concluding his brief.
Mr. Pepper says that the question
whether Pinchot has been right and
Balllnger wrong is less important
than whether the administration of the
interior department under the latter
has been marked by fidelity to the
public trust. He says that when Mr.
Balllnger became secretary he had. "a
land office training" that being equiva-
lent as Mr. Pepper views it to a lean-
ing toward a policy of distribution of
the people's land; the secretary's point
of view was distinctly. Pepper says
that of a "distributlonist."
Knew Nothing of Forestry.
"He appears to have known little or
nothing of forestry problems" the
brief continues. "With respect to the
I policy of power
site protection. Mr.
Balllnger testified that w
rhen he became
secretary he knew nothing whatever
about it. He was not accurately in-
formed respecting the work of the
reclamation service. But it was not
merely that he lacked equipment but
that he had a distinct hostility to the
mon in the srovernment service wno
stood for conservation and distinct pre-
judice against their views. His con-
duct and his testimony make it clear
that he regarded reclamation with ridi-
cule and forestry with contempt.
"What was impending when Ballln-
ger became secretary was not a con-
flict between the forest service and the
interior department but a conflict be-
tween distribution and conservation
wherever and whenever the two con-
ceptions might meet.
"The collision came quickly" he
adds "and this investigation is one of
the consequences."
No Case Against Forest Service.
Pepper refers briefly to the part
played by the forest service in the in-
quirj' and then says: "This brief pro-
ceeds upon the assumption that there
is a general recognition of the failure
of the attempt to make a case against
the forest service."
He adds that Mr. Pinchot had no
complaint to make because he was dls-

BRUMBY DECLINES TO
BOTHER QUARANTINE
Austin. Tex. nne IS. Dr. W. M- Brumby state health officer retnrned
from El Paso where he went to look Into our-rauline conditions at the
International bridge connecting EI Paso and Juarez Mexico. A controversy
recently aroe there and Dr. Brumby deemed it advisable to make a personal
Inspection and he sustained the city an d county officials.
As Is generally knows small pov simply thrives with Mexicans and the Mex-
ican population ha it in a large rntlo. Pest camps bar been established on the
Mexican idde which attracted larg? numbers of indigent and other Mexican
suffering with smallpox. But they were not permitted to tarry Ions:. Taey
were Kent to the American side and reported to the local health officers who
of course hml them sent to the pest camp. This got to be a good thing and
the Mexicans were being received In large numbers.
The result was that a strict qarIntine was put on and persons enter-
ing Texas were reqx'ired to shc.v vaccinntlon certificates or the scar. ThI
put a stop to the wholesale Importation of smallpox bet aroused the Mex-
ican authorities In .Tuarez who rcallatetd with like measures. The mer-
chants In both places felt the effect of the quarantine but those on the Mex-
ican side more so as American dollars are worth two of the Mexican dol-
lars. They made this plain to their local authorises nnd succeeded In secur-
ing Tellef. Then the American merchants complained and Dr. Brumby went
to El Paso but finds that the regultions In view of the circumstances are
fair and reasonable and nre really of mueh service to this slate.
Because of this belief he has declined to Interfere or order the quarantine

Makes Record Time in Flight
From New York to the
City of Quakers.
COULD HAVE STAYED
UP MUCH LONGER
Weather Was Fine and He
Was Able to Keep Close to
Special Train Pacing Him.
Philadelphia Pa.. June 13. Charles
K. Hamilton a young aviator who
achieved world wide fame less than a
year ago" today made the most daring
flight of his. career traveling in a bi-
plane from Governor's Island N. Y. to
a. point in the . outskirts of Philadel-
phia. Hamilton on the return flight landed
1 two miles from Perth Amboy N. J.
his motor working badly largely hs
thought because lie omitted to clean
the spark plugs in Philadelphia. A.
garage furnished him new plugs and
immediately he began preparations to
renew his flight to New York.
He made the trip to Philadelphia a
distance of 86 miles in 113 minutes of-
ficial time.
The speed of the flight was at an
average' of 46 mHes an hour.
A feature of the achievement was the
ease with which he followed a special
train.
Governor Stuart welcomed Hamilton
who said it was the best trip he ever
made. "I had the machine in perfect
J control all the way and could have
j stayed up much' longer" he said. 'The
only drawback to the journey was the
dampness and chill. Most of the trip It
was misty and at time I could not see
the train and seldom saw people at the
stations."
Hamilton started on his return jour-
ney to Ne York at 11:30.
Hamilton is the man who flew over
the Mexican border under the auspices
of The El Paso Herald in that city re-
cently. Prior to that he established
a new world record for a mile flight
minutes after 6 last evening and for In
minutes and three seconds circled th
lower end of Governor's Island and
hovered over the harbor.
In making his preliminary run ov-
the Fandy surface tof the island Hamil-
ton bumped a surveyor's stake an-'
smashed a guy- wire. He knew It him-
self but nobody else did until he alight-
ed after a heautlful flight.
Seven times- he circled the island at
a height of perhaps 200 feet and then
came down with a dive like a falcon
swooping to its prey.
This was preliminary to his fight
to Philadelphia and return for the
T4mes and the PubHc Ledger prize.
