last night at 7 o'clock by deputy sheriff
Romero as he walked into the saloon
owned by Harvey Richards. He "had
been noticed a few miles out at a ranch
and other neighboring places and his
arrest was delayed in an effort to as-
certain if his companion Frank Schmidt

contributed to the arrest having forced
Johnson to the wall. The arrest of the

and two whites -were killed in a race
riot which became general following
trouble between. a vthite man and a ne-
g;ro growing out of an attempt of a
white man to collect a debt he said the
negro owed him. Great excitement pre-

facts are difficult to obtain.

In return the negroes arc adopting
the guerilla methods of -warfare roam-
ing the countryside bushes in small
bands with arms ready to fight any
white man encountered.
Appeals have been sent to Austin and
messages received state that rangers
are now on the -way here.
Cooler heads among the leading citi-
zens here urge -that a company of state
militia be sent to avoid more serious
trouble. It is believed that this will
be done tonight. "Unless sober counsel
prevails there Is little doubt here that
many will be killed.

before the date arrived the cellar of
the Crippen house unearthed the muti-

for delegates to the constitutional con-
f-vention la.t night with E. S. Ives coun

The special session of the legislature
is developing a number of little "boom-
lets" which may grow and develop into
healthy ambitions at the state election
two years hence.
The most virile of them all seems the
one started by the friends of state sen-
ator Claude V. Hudspeth of El Paso
who is being urged as the most availa-
ble candidate for lieutenant governor
two years hence.
It has been suggested that the be-
stowal of this office would be a worthy
reward for Hudspeth as a result of his
activity in getting the Insurance law
repealed and at the same time a well
deserved compliment to the far west-
ern section of Texas which he repre-
But the most attractive plum which

will have to be filled by appointment

Mr. Colquitt has already served notice
that he will not resign until he quali-
fies for governor. This will give him
an .opportunity of appointing his own
Charles Rogan former land commis-
sioner and R. W. Flnley former state

THIS IS ONLY
IN BIG CITIES
"Washington. D. C. July 30. More
than $40000000 in the larger cities of
the United States goes to pay liquor
license fees and then some.
The extent to which drinking men
help to pay the expenses of the gov-
ernment in cities is indicated by the
census report covering licenses for the
year 190S In cities of 30000 or more.
These figures show an aggregate of
$42000000 paid for licenses a gain of
$3000000 over the previous year. The
Increase is due to the large fees ex-
acted in most of the large cities. T:he
Mcenses of drinking places numbered 1
67131 a decrease In three years of about
4000. This is due largely to the fact
that a number of cities went "dry."
The states claiming the largest num-
ber of saloons to the total population
were Texas Wisconsin and New York
notwithstanding the large area of pro-
hibition territory in Texas showing an
unusually large number of saloons to
the population in the "wet" counties.

technical point of bridge engineering.

This theory is carried out by the be-
lief of jefe politico Francisco Portillo
of Juarez he himself an engineer of
long experience. Mr. Portillo visited
the scene of the accident many times
and his inspection has resulted in the
theory that the key beam had been re-
moved. "I think that a new free bridge should
be built" said Mr. Portillo. "The two
federal governments should see to it.
I am sure that the Mexican government
will do its half share. There should be
separate ways for vehicles pedestrians
and street cars. As for the accident
