Less Deliveries or Higher Prices?
Has been a question facing the merchants of El Paso for several months. After careful consideration
we have deckled to reduce our deliveries therefore
Beginning on "Wednesday the fifteenth we will onlj- make delivery of orders
amounting to $2.00 or over and last delivery will leave the store at 4 ocloek.
Since our first announcement last week in regard to the above change we have had many of our
customers some of them who have traded with us a great number of years tell us that while the
$2.00 delivery would inconvenience them to a certain extent at first that they could readily see the
necessity for making the change and that they believed it would be the measure whereby hundreds of
El Paso housekeepers would more efficiently and economically handle the food problem in their homes.
Assuming that $2.00 delivery plan will inconvenience some of our customers at first nevertheless we
ask their hearty cooperation in enabling us to successfully put the plan in operation fully believing
that after they have become accustomed to its working that they will be more than pleased with its
business like method.
208-210 and 212 MILLS STREET.
The long discussion has finally raised these questions:
Why would a vote for closing mote streets (in
furtherance of the ordinance) delay the abolishment of
the Grade Crossing Nuisance?
For the reason that the City is so near the limit of its
bonded indebtedness it will not be able for a year or two
or longer to raise the money to build the storm sewer to
lake care of the surface water and protect the proposed
open subway and other railroad property which the or-
dinance prepared by the Railroad Company requires of
the City and which the ordinance provides the City must
fully complete before the Railroad Company shall be
called upon to break dirt or begin building the subway
and the Railroad Company has a year and a half to build
the open subway after the storm sewer is finished.
Can we require the Railroad Companies to build a
Yes the City Council can do so. The present City
NO ONE EXEMPT BOARD 2
SAYS MINISTER! "1
Even Preachers Not; Mor-
ally Must Earn It Says
"No one is exempt from duty dur-
ing this war." declared Rev. U. J-
Bradley at the Sunday morning ser-
ice at the First Congregational
church. "If the laws exempt a class
of persons such as the ministers they
are not exempt morally. Persons
must earn the exemption by vital
necessary service to the community.
This may be done in various ways.
Rev. Mr. Bradley divided the citi-
zens of this country into groups and
treated them and their rights to ex-
emption separately. He said:
Younir. men of military age who
are drafted can be exempt only when
they feel consclentiouslv that they
are doing real service in other lines.
This applies also to the minister in
that he must feel that he has a mod-
ern faith flaming In his soul which;
will be of more value fn civil uie man .

and business men are to be judged ac-1
cording to the may in which they;
treat the problems of labor their at-!
titude toward their employes and
their honesty in dealing with war
conditions. The business men who
gain money through war condit'.ors
ought to be drafted. The industrial
workers moft feel themselves a part
of the community and take the prob-
lems and the duties of war time ;o
For all. Mr. Bradley preached tiie

Xew York. Aug. li. The revised
figures of the work of the IS ex-
emption boards as far as the various
districts had reported up to today
show that C0.152 men had been exam-

number 13478 or about 22 percent
had been apparently accepted.
The district draft board of which
Charles E. Hughes is chairman today

pealed from local boards. This board
will have about 25.090 cases to decide.

til Thursday morning while the
county board which had 67 men ap-
pearing Monday morning received
alien exemption claims from 37 and
was still engaged In examining the
remainder just before the noon recess.
Go To k I.eaa Quota.
Mayor Charles Davis and judge
Dan Jsckaon will leave at 10:3u
oclock tonight for Austin to present
to the governor and the adjutant gen-
eral El Paso's request that the quota
this city has been called on to fur-
nish for the army draft be reduced.
The departure of the delegation was
delayed In order that the required
data could be accumulated.
The governor and the adjutant gen-
eral will be given facts and figures
showing that the large percentage of
aliens here makes it almost impos-
sible for this city to furnish the men
asked of it.
Panne On Exemption.
The first local board to act In a
judicial capacity was city board No.
?. J. E. Williams chairman which
convened Sunday and went over the
list of exemption claims before it-
While a large percentage of the
claimants were granted discharges
there mere a few denied. In the cas;
of those granted exemption appeals
are automatically taken by the gov-
ernment to the district board while
the men denied exemption may ap-
peal likewlrc. The board did not
make public It; findings which wll.
bp known from the district board
when it passes on them.
Ahnentees May lie Drafted.
If the prevailing understanding
that a registrant falling to appear
for examination before the exemption
board thereby waives exemption
claims leased on anything except
alien citizenship Is correct then the
local boards will furnish more men
for the draft than Indicated by the
result of their first week's work. This
follows from the fact that a good per-
centage of the absentees sre not Mex-
icans. Of 180 men absenting them-
selves from the county board the
names of 10 indicate that they are
not Mexican aliens. The presump-
tion is that the government will draft
all of these who stand the physical

Administration is not partial to the Railroad Companies
and the present City Administration is opposed to the
closing of any more streets. The City Council have legal
authority to require the Railroad Companies to build a
subway and cover itover immediately entirely at the
Railroad Companies expense and the companies would
be required to build their own storm sewer and all neces-
sary protection for the subway and their other property
and the companies could not delay the building of such
covered subway or tube for the reason that the City has
insufficient funds for the City would not be required to do
anything or make any outlay. The City Council may re-
quire the building of a longer subway to solve the problem
of grade crossings across other streets.
The legal authority of the City Council to require the
immediate building of a covered subway was fully ex-
plained by Judge Morris and authorities cited in his
article printed in the Herald Saturday.

lated repeatedly and there Is no as-
surance that any official attempt will
be made to prevent a repetition of
these illegal acta. Unless we are
prepared to accept the consequences
of these illegal acts we must repud-

Can the Railroad Companies be required to build
around the South side of the City and take up their tracks
through the center of the City?
Yes indirectly but not by any single direct legal pro
How then indirectly?
By requiring them to build a covered subway if they
remain where they are through the center of the City
and such other regulations as the City Council have legal
authority to make. A covered subway or tubes would
probably require the use of electric power to pull trains in
the subway for steam engines would fill a covered sub-
way or tube with smoke. The regulations the City Coun-
cil has legal authority to make and should make if the
trains are to continue to run through the center of the City
may cost the Companies more to comply with than it
would cost to build around the South side of the City. If i
ihey do the Companies may be confidently depended'
