Judge Thotftas L. Blanton, of Abilene, w as then called upon to address the convention. "Unfortunate for me in the past, your city has been for my opponent," said Judge Blanton. "My policy will be to serve the people with efficiency. If I can serve the people of El Paso, all you need to do Is to touch the button and I will be at your service. My policy In respect to Mexico will be so that not a man in El Paso will be against me." Favoits Piirermslnn Mexico.

He said that now was the time to offer clean politics In the county of El Paso and that every candidate should be given a fair and square deal. The delegates committee recommended that the resolution be considered without being referred to the resolutions commit Quality First ECONOMY IS THE WORD AND IT'S DEFINED 3400 R. P. M. It's cheaper in the long run to buy a car like the 3400 r. p. m. Chalmers at $1090 Detroit. A low-priced car often doesn't pay. Somewhat like the man who wanted to fence his farm and said he wouldn't spend more than a certain sum of money. "Well, for that price I can build you a fence two feet high that will keep the pigs out," said the hardware man. "Now, for just so much more I can build a fence three feet high that will keep the sheep out. And for this amount I can build a 5-foot fence that will keep anything out." You had better pay a-couple of hundred more, and get a regular car. Get a car that fulfills exactly every wish. One that does a good workday on Monday; that takes you anywhere on Tuesday; runs you 200 miles on Wednesday; does the errands on Thursday; takes the family to call on Friday; one that's not only got the 5-year endurance, but gives you a feeling of pride as well. That, sir, is our definition of Economy. This new 1917 Chalmers with the 3400 r. p. m. engine the car that increased Chalmers sales 792 in six months is one that'll lure you the minute you sit behind the wheel. President.

"We are' called together to elect delegates and not to interfere with the primary election," said Howe. Three Precincts Oppose. A heated discussion was prevented w hen Chairman Brady called for a standing vote. Delegates from Precincts 13, 8, and 16 did not vote for the retolution. The resolution was carried by a big majoriiy as most of the delegates voting were appointed by the Citizens. The resolutions committee made resolu tions that there should be equal rights to all and Special privileges to none.

The citizens' ticket in the recent primary election was entirely responsible for there being a county Democratic convention yesterday.

NAVAL ESCORT Desires German Underwater Merchantman Protected Across Three-Mile Limit By Associated Press. .. Washington, July 59. It 1s understood that the application ror protection was made through the collector or customs at Baltimore and that Captain Koenig, the submarine commander, desired a coast guard cutter or naval vessel to escort him down Chesapeake bay and to the three-mile limit. Unless steps arc taken to prevent It, the submarine probably will be roliowed out by a fleet of small crart carrying newspaper correspondents, photographers and sight seers. It Is said, loo, tnat ine ucrmans icar some British merchant ship might go to sea in the wake of the Deutschland and adver tise her presence to the allied cruisers wait. ing ofr the Virginia capes and or even attempting to ram her as soon as slit left American territorial waters. Officials or the state department held that, while American neutrality must be fully safeguarded, It would be a bad precedent for the government to convoy or accord any other unusual attention to a vessel that can be rated only as a merchantman. Precau tions already have been taken to see that the submarine is not molested within tne tnree-mile limit. Since the reported incursion or a British crulsr between the Virginia cape last week the armored cruiser North Carolina and three destroyers have been patrolling orr Cape Henry. r nr. rmo FREIGHTER LIES SNLGt.LED LOU ST POINT BKHTU.

That they are concerned about the boat's sareiy during her run down Chesapeake bay seemed to be Indicated In a report, regarded as reliable, that It is planned to have a second tug accompany the submarine and the Timmins as (ar as the capes to guard against the possibility or "accidents" en route.
