she said. "You know what that means
to the Garment Workers' union and

markets of Texas. Help the garment

get along. There is no way to get

iliaries." Gus Sparling of Gordon asked per-
mission to introduce a resolution
against alien labor cjid urged a law
restricting immigration. President
Cunningham ruled that this had been
covered in a. former resolution which
had been adopted. Delegate Sparling
spoke again on the alien labor resolu-
tion saying that the offered resolu-
tion did not cover the matter. He said
he came to El Paso to stop strike
breakers being sent from here to Colo-
rado and that the immigration laws
would not stop the Importation of la-
bor to be used as strike breakers.
Miss Eva Goldsmith reported for the
committee for pensions for mothers
and children. She urged a law pro-
viding for this pension.
Miss Blanche Taylor of Dallas urged
an amendment providing for a pension
for aged mothers and fathers widows
and for orphans. The committee re-
port was adopted by the convention.
Frank Zlzck of San Antonio moved
that a committee be appointed to draft
a resolution of thanks to the people of
El Paso for the entertainment while
A motion to proceed with the elec-
tion of officers was carried after a
motion to postpone the election until

capita tax of the federation be in-
creased from 2 to 3 cents per capita

Vote Si 00 for Mine Worker.
"Barbarous practices in Colorado
were again condemned in a resolu-
tion passed Friday morning. A do-
nation of $100 was voted for the Colo-
rado United Mine Workers of Colo-
rado. Advertising Money Returned.
C W. Woodman as chairman of the
special advertising committee made a
report of his committee recommending
that the advertising contract which had
been entered into by secretary Spencer
for placing advertising in the proceed-
ings of the meeting be carried out but
that the $256 paid for the contract be
returned and that no further solicita-
tion be permitted as it was contrary
to the rules of the association.
Jake Stlne asked what was wrong
with the advertising contract. Mr.
Woodman explained that the state fed-
eration at Fort Worth decided not to
have this advertising inserted into the
proceedings. He said that It was a
mistake to print proceedings In the
name and with the seal of the federa-
tion. Delegate Sacks of El Paso said that
advertising was solicited from unfair
houses here. Miss Blanche Taylor said
the federation should get more than
$150 for Its share.
R H. Campbell of Dallas said that
the making of the contract was a mis-
take. He said that the committee was
only trying to be fair. The only way to
get Justice Is to return the money. By
taking the action suggested by the
committee he said was the best way
out of a bad bargain. The recommen-
dation was adopted.

i The referenaum was discussed at
lencth at the Thursday afternoon meet
ing of the state federation. The dis-
cussion was started when the resolu-
tions committee referred a resolution
setting aside the referendum vote for
changing the method of electing offi-
cers back to the convention for consid-
eration. The vote on the method ot
electing officers of the federation by
referendum or by convention vote re-
sulted in a vote of less than one-eighth
of the total membership. This was not
considered satisfactory by president
Cunningham and he recommended In
his annual address that the matter be
threshed out on the floor ot the con-
vention. This was done Thursday af-
ternoon and occupied almost all of the
i afternoon session.

that officers could be elected by the
convention and not by referendum.
President Cunningham said that the
referendum vote in the past had been
a rule of the minority.
H. B. Linskie. ot Dallas favored the
election of officers in convention. Carl
Rosson of Palestine asked: "Who sent
"Are you so wise that you told the
union who to send?" he said. I think
the referendum is good and there Is no
sensible argument against the Initia-
tive referendum and recall.
Delegate & Lotzenhlser of Dallas
said he was against the referendum.
President Cunningham held that the
referendum Is not a law. J. K. Odle
of Sherman opposed the referendum.
Miss Eva Goldsmith said the women
were doing better than the men with

C F. Russt. of San Anton' said three
of the largest organlaztions in the state
would control tne aixaira ot the con-

R. B. Stickley. of Fort Worth said
that the referendum did not mean ma-
jority rule. "Boys when you get Gem-

Referendum Voted Down.
A rollcal! vote on the motion to set
aside the referendum vote which had
ben taken on the form of election was
then taken. The referendum vote he-
suited In a total vote of :M to 113

Federal Troops Needed.
President Cunningham spoke on the
resolution to thank president Wilson
for sending federal troops to Colorado.
He attacked Rockefeller and the Colo-
rado coal operators. "We did apply to
president Wilson for federal troops in
Colorado" he said. "We know that
Colorado was In the hands of the coal
corporations from the governor down
to the lowest officer. There Is just as
much manhood in resisting oppression
at home as abroad. Conditions are as
bad in Colorado as in Mexico. We sup-
plied them with guns and ammunition.
They got enough to put the militia
on the run down the canyon. We want
resolutions to urge president Wilson
to keep the federal troops there. No
one can say what will happen If the
militia guard the state. We have not
given up the fight. We believe that It

A rising vote of thanks was given
president Woodrow Wilson because he
sent the federal troops to Colorado. The
president was urged to leave the" troops
there until peace was restored. This
was offered In the form of a resolu-
tion which was passed unanimously.
The resolution read:
"President Wilson is the only states-
man who has proved himself big enough
and brave enough to override the will
of John D. Rockefeller In the Colorado
strike." The resolution also said that
It was a well known fact that the leg-
islature appropriated l006.000 to car-
ry on the civil war In the interest of
the Rockefeller holdings.
An amendment to the federation law
was passed at the afternoon session
when the committee on constitution and
law offered a substitute to the label
resolution requiring delegates to have
a given number of labels shall be
shown by the delegates before they are
seated. The substitute amendment re-
quires that the credentials committee
shall consist of two men and a woman
to inspect the wearing apparal of dele-
gates. The committee must report to
the convention all delegates not having
the required number of labels. Any
delegates refusing to show labels are
to be reported as having none.

DEMANDS NEW PLAN
Replattlnsr Project Abandoned but An-
other Effort Will Re Made for Scenic
Drives Mayor Kelly Enthusiastic
Owing to Inability to obtain the co-
operation of one of the large property
owners efforts to replat the mesa's
rim to make room for the proposed
scenic boulevard have been abandoned
by the special committee appointed by
mayor Kelly and headed by alderman
Clayton as chairman. The committee
at its meeting today decided to go
ahead and try to secure right of way
for the boulevard as near the rim as
possible but without trying to replat
the lots and streets as before Intended.
Mayor Kelly who was present at the
meeting said that he was enthusiastic
over the proposition for the boulevard
and determined to see it put through If
possible. He is specially anxious to
get the rightofway in shape before he
makes up his budset for this year so
that a sum sufficient to make the In-
itial improvements may be included in
the budget. The city administration Is
strongly in favor of the boulevard and
there is every reason to believe that
a way will be found to put the plan
through this year unless some unex-
pected obstacles arise.
City engineer Espy will make a new
plan to conform to the changed con-
ditions and attorney Walsh will formu-
late a contract for deeds which prop-
erty owners will be asked to sign.

Al'TOISTS DRIVE TO CITY
FROM HOPE EDDY COUNTY
Three auto parties from Hope Eddy
county. New Mexico arrived In El Paso
Thursday having driven the distance
of 156 miles In 10 1-1 hours which Is
considered good time considering the
recent heavy rains in the Pecos val-
ley. In the party wrre Hugh M. Gage
a banker and H. White and their fam-
ilies. They report the roads aside
from being muddy in places to be In
fine shape for auto travel. According
to Mr. White the Pecoa valley of New
Mexico is to have one of the most pros-
perous years In its history.
BE GOODBY DAY
The great education distribution
of People's Cyclopedia conducted by
the Herald for the benefit of its read-
ers is to be withdrawn Saturday at
closing time although from present
indications the supply of books may
not hold out that long.
So many were disappointed last week
In not being able to call for their sets
that It was decided to resume the sale
until the remaining sets were distrib-
uted. But the distribution has been
so heavy during the last two days that
it is more than likely the supply will
be exhausted before night when the
sale will end.
You will not need an extra book-
case to hold this complete set of books
for it takes up less than half as much
space as the ordinary encyclopedia
et the information Is all In It thou-
sands upon thousands of subjects which
cover the entire world and its peoples.
Think ot the many advantages In hav-
ing all this information in such con-
venient form that it'ean be referred to
"In a minute" without the necessity
of searching through numerous large
unhandy volumes to get It. The con-
veniences of this edition makes It far
more desirable than Any similar work
published. It saves time and reference
and it saves room in the library.
Call at the Herald office and ask to
examine this set. Come prepared to
take It with you. There will be abso-
lutely no further extension of time.
