Sa~ kurai Found With Hand Clasping a Revolver With the back of his head blown away, F. H. Sakurai, a Japanese, was found lying in a pool of blood in his bed at 607 \'2 South El Paso street, Monday morning, with a .38 caliber revolver, mufflied in a towel, still clasped in his right hand. Sakurai came to El Paso in the early part of June, according to information obtained by the police, and opened a small restaurant at 502 South El Paso street. After closing his restaurant Sunday night, he went to his room at about 12 oclock. Monday morning Luisa Gonzales, Sakurai’s sole employe, appeared at the restaurant to go to work, and found the place closed. After waiting some time, she called at the Jap’s room, and got no reply, after knocking on the door several times. Looking through the transom with the aid of the chambermaid, the girl saw her employer lying across the bed, his head unrecognizable from blood and mutilation. The police were notified at once, and Capt. Veater investigated, giving it as his opinion that the Jap had suicided. The revolver with which the deed was done, was muffled in a towel to deaden the sound of the re- nort. It is thought that death was instantaneous. The body was removed by McBean, Simmons & Hartford.

Hancock on a week’s fishing trip, and on leaving extended a general invitation to all his friends to meet him on his return Saturday night and divide the catch. A freakish bolt of lightning that struck Luis Garcia, a Mexican boy whose home is in Smeltertown, Sunday afternoon, while he was acting as “caddie" on the golf links of the El Paso Country club in the upper valley, brought him near death. It also felled Eldridge Booth, of the Union bank in this city, who had his club poised for a stroke at the 16th tee of the green. The boy was stiff and unconscious for an hour while Dr. James Vance, assisted by J. E. Benton and others, worked on him, and was taken to liis home when resuscitated, a purse being made up by golf players who saw the occurrence. The bolt struck the boy on the right side of the head, burning the crown out of his hat, skipping across to his left breast and down the left leg, and out through his shoe, burning the body and destroying the shoe. Mr. Booth, when revived, said it felt as though some one had hit him a sharp blow on the back of his head. He fell, conscious, and was dazed for several minutes. Mrs. .T. E. Benton, nearby the golfers, called for aid and the El Pasoans gathered for relief in a hard rainstorm. The afternoon had been one of expectancy of thunder show'ers, but while the players on the golf course thought the storm had passed, the two persons were struck by an unusually loud crash. Mr. Benton, Fred Lazenby and others were near Mr. Booth. The boy was taken first to the club house. Monday morning’s advices regarding the injured boy were unobtainable at the smelter. Mr. Booth was reported to have recovered satisfactorily. Mr. Benton called at the boy’s home Sunday evening and found him vomiting, but apparently recovering. TIME FOR PAYING CAPITAL STOCK TAX EXTENDED MONTH “Blanks for canital stock tax not yet furnisl1»Pd. Time for filing extended to August 20.” This was a message received by Webb C. Haden, of the First National hank, from A. S. Walker, collector of internal revenue at Austin, Monday morning. It referred to the blanks for reporting upon the corporations in Texas which pay tax on capital stock at the rate of 50 cents per $1000. CAPLINGER ON DVY SHIFT. Traffic sergeant J. F. Caplinger is again day sergeant of police, substituting for Sergt. Dan Thompson, who every Pool adherent to get out and work for him, and to roll up a majority that would show decisively where judge Pool stands in the estimation of his fellow citizens. Victor Moore declared that he wras the original Pool man. He said: “No man in Texas is the equal of Adrian Pool in energy, enthusiasm and the ability to get what he goes after. He is always honest, always w'orkins, and always succeeds. I never in my life saw such a bundle of energy as Adrian Pool. Mr. Pool and R. E. Thomason will make the best legislative team in the house or senate, and El Paso owes it to itself and to Mr. Pool to send him there with a unanimous backing, if possible. Worker For Hlshway*. W. G. Roe told what Mr. Pool had accomplished in the trip he took with secure the Paso. “Mr. Pool has a better acquaintance and more influence in Austin than you can imagine, unless you have been there with him, and seen it,” declared Mr. Roe. “We must send him to Austin with a strong majority. There is no doubt bat w'hat the majority of men will vote for him, but we’ve got to see that the women realize what a candidate Mr. Pool is. He has fought for us, and worked for us. and forgot himself for us, and it would be a crime not to get every possible vote for him.” Pool Get» Into Things. C. H. Finley spoke briefly, saying that Mr. Pool’s election is more a matter of majority than of merely electing him. Art Woods told of an experience he had in Austin with judge Pool, saying that he could get in anywhere any time, no matter what important conference was going on. Ask* Vigorous Campaign. “There was a time when Adrian Pool and I were not the best of friends,” said Tom Lea, “but that was when 1 didn't know him. His opposition in this campaign doesn't amount to much. Judge Dale is an estimable man with nothing in particular against him, except that he supports Ferguson, which is his busi-« ness. But we wrant to send Pool to Austin with a big majority, and to do so we have got to make a vigorous personal campaign.” “No one in El Paso knows the public spirit like judge Pool,” declared Herman Andreas. “He illustrated it in the Knights of Columbus campaign last week, and showed then, if at no other time, why he ought to go to Austin.” Pool and Thomanon Workers. R. M. Dudley said that Pool was needed to help Thomason with his educative campaign in the legislature. “I believe there is hardly any doubt that Thomason will be the next speaker,” he said, “and with Pool on the floor, from his own town, the pair w'ould do wonders for their county and for the state. Pool will easily be the most powerful man on the floor of the legislature.” Judge Pool, in attempting to speak for himself, made an enthusiastic Hobby talk, saying that every vote that is cast for Ferguson in El Paso is a reflection upon the county. Pool Club Formed. Mr. Roe advocated the formation of a Pool organization to get busy during the rest of the campaign for Pool among the women. This was acted upon, R. L.
