sitlon company all privileges within the Ex
position grounds. The Schwelckirdt lease
hold Is liascd on two ordinances ami on a
contract entered Into with Chirles
Schweicknrdt by the Hoard of Public Im
provements under thce ordinances. The
first ordinance was approved March G. 1891.
It glies to Charles Schwelckardt "the ex
cluslie prli liege of selling refreshments In
Forest Park for a period of ten ears from
April 1. 1S31. for the annual rental of Jl.MiO.
painhle monthly In adiance.'The ordinance
proildes that "the lesce shall erect i res
taurant building to cost not les.s than $15.
. upon plans approieil and In a place
designated by the Beard of Public Im
provements." which Is to become the prop
erty of the city, without" compensition. at
the expiration of the lease. The lessee may
alo erect and maintain not to ixceed three
ornamental refreshment stands upon plans
npproied and In places designated by the
Park Commissioner." the ordinance de
clares. The ordinance prohibits the maintenance
by tho lessee of a public bar within the
park. The ordinance further proildes for
a penalty of JO) a day for ilolatlon of the
provisions of the ordirar.ee and for a for
feiture of the lease and the nullification of
the ordinance If the penalties reach tho
sum of J1.V0.
The leafe held by Schwelckardt at pres
ent Is based on an ordinance npproied July
Zi, 1831. extending his leae for three jears.
The ordinance puts forward as a grounl
for the extension that the lessee was de
prlied of the exercise of his lease for three
jears by u suit brought by Charles Gibson
to restrain the grant and by the burning
of his restaurant building. Under the or
dinance extending the lease all the provi
sions of the original ordinance are made
to apply to the extension. Including the
penalties and tho prohibition as to the
maintenance of a public bar at which
drinks arc sencd to persons standing.
This proilsion of tho ordinance la icry ex
plicit. Its terms are: "No public bar shill
be maintained within the limits of said
park, but nil liquors or refreshments shall
Iks sened by competent w alters to persons
seated at tables to be furnished by said
lessee, and no liquors or refreshments shall
be furnished or sold In any other way."
rLANMMS TO EMtnGG
FOREST PARK SITE.
The Forest Park site advocates dcilscd
plan. for enlarging their site.
There are sixty ncres between Sklnker
road and the city, limits, 130 acres In tho
Catlln tract north of the park and 170 acres
south ot the park, all within the city
limits." sas L. C In Inc. "This would
make the total area of the Forest Park
i lie S acres, all within the city limits. It
Is desirable. I take It. that the site should
not extend into the county. a that ouM
bring leg.-l complications In the use of the
i.0.ie,Oc0 appropriated by the city. There
would be no objection to hiving the conces
sions In the county, because the concessions
are not a pert of the Fair proper, nnd the
exposition company would sperd none of
Its money on the concession buildings."
Cll IRLESTO.V EXPOSITION'.
Steps have been taken by the Exposition
company to reserve a site on the Charles
ten Exposition grounds for a Louisiana
Purchase Exposition building. President
Francis has entered into correspondence
with the Charleston authorities and assur
arces hale been given that the Louisiana
Purchase Exposition Company can haie
the choice on the reservation set apart for
George H. Aubrey, special representative
of the Interstate and West Indian Exposi
tion, as the Charleston enterprise is official
ly known, has been In St. Louis conferring
with President Francis on details of the
representation to be made by the St. Louis
World's Fair at Charleston. Mr. Aubrey is
a grandson of John Forsyth, the statesman
who .argued Spain into the cession of Flor
ida to the United States, after almost every
other public man of the times had given it
up as a hopeless job.
Mr. Aubrey is now engaged In a tour of
thirty States to enlist their co-operation in

Storm Will He Ke-
Ileaunmnt. Tex.. June 3. It was learned
to-day that tho English syndicate which
has obtained leases on 4')0W acres of Texas
oil lands has agreed to expend not less than
tV.c In developing the property and Is
obligated to pay the owners 8 renll roalty
en eiery barrel of oil produced.
T. W. Line to-day ald $20M cash for
n quartt r ucre of the aviajne syndicate
land. The deal was made with W. T.
Campliell. The sjlidlcatc- has compromised
with the J. M. GulTey compan). wHch held
ii leae on the fifteen acres of Splndlctop
pnUNrly Involved In the original deal by
the pajmeut of a large sum In cash. A
well whit h was being sunk by the Guffey
tompany is included in the sttllement and
1 1 now- onneil by Governor Hogg and his
asstclate". It is down WO ftet.
Since President Pierce of the Waters
I'lcrte t)il Company announced through The
Republic that his company was prepared
to handle the output nf the Heatimout field,
and was ready to makn contracts for fuel
oil, there has been some talk of forming
n combination among the four producing
comanles outside of the Guffey compiny
to Install complete facilities for market
ing their product. The talk has not taken
sliaIo In .u : Ion and so far the scheme ex
ists only In one of the newspapers here,
which has eilnced antagonism towards the
Waters Pierce compan).
Pinna Hair .Not Crystallised.
It Is known that such a plan has been
Hdiocated from the start by the Hejwood
compan). but when Its olllcers attempted
to secure the co-oeratlon of some of the
ether companies they were met with In
difference. One result is that the Iley
wood company Is now using the Gufey
ccnipan)'s loading rnck on the Sabine and
East Texas Italiroad.
It Is understood here that the Guffey
company and the Waters Pierce hale
reached an agreement as to the marketing
of olL The producers who are anxious to
do business and get rial of thlr oil have no
prejudice agilnst the Waters Pierce. As one
of them put It to-day:
"We don't care who bu)s our oil. Just so
we sell It fast and get a fair price for it."
A monment Is on foot to rebuild that
portion of the Gulf and International Rail
road which was washed away by the storm
last September. This, road connected lleau
inntit directly with Galveston. The growth
of the oil business has made the contem
plated work absolutely necessary. The dls
