safeguard Hie county'a rinances.
Although District Attorney w. W. Brldg-
ers was McioUlly altaeked at the last meet-
ing or the El Paso city and County Hemo-
ciatlc club the city's political machine the
district attorney rerused to indulge In the
"mud-slinging" policy of the political club.
The reason that the political organization
Is harpljng on the so-called club crusade
at brought out is because It has dona noth-
ing else to talk about
"of all Iho poor Utile starved out political
Issues the social club political Issue Is the
worse." tald Mr. Hrldgcrs. "It is being
advertised so much to arreen the real thing
ann mat la tne rinanclal affairs of the conn
ly. When the financial affairs of the coitti
ty are made known the political club Issue
will have to take a back seat."
At the meeting of the El I'aso City and
County Is-mot-rallr club last Erlday night
tne erusaao against social clubs was ex-
plained on the ground that to close these
had been a promise maoe by the present
city anminisiration nerore it was elected to
office. The administration has been in Of-
rica a year and toil Is the rirst time that
there has been any efforl made lo close the
clubs. Mr. lirldgers tlmugni it was rathnr
a peculiar Coincidence that the city would
launch Its campaign against the clubs Juat
before an election.
"I bad the aame proposition submitted to
me" said Mr. Bridge r "and they know
that l know how limy are working II." If
the social club fight was not to ba used aa

Mr. Brldgers thought It was rather a p
rullar coincident that the rlty administra-
tion was juat now thinking about cloalng
so-called social clubs In view of the state
ment of the El Paao City and County Demo
craur club had said cloalng the clubs was
but fulfilling election promises made by
Uie sdminlstrsllon before election.
"The administration haa been in office
a little more than a year" aald Mr. Brldg-
era "and it seems to me to be rsther
peculiar that the club art now being clos-
ed." Mr. Brldgers said that Injunction suit
he had filed wera filad after elections and
Mr. Brldgera stated that he had had a
standing agreement with the police de-
partment that if they would secure Infor-
mation against social club be would
