Mr. Thitmoro reported with refer
ence to the occupancy oi the one

Campbell street bouse, that Mr. Teg-
mire would give his opinion in the
matter later so that a report could be
made to the council.
Mr. Stewart did not think the gas
company should be paid $30 for Nov
ember as long as this company's mdter
in the city hall building had leaked so
generously. The burning question
was referred back to Mr. Stew
art for further intellectual mastication.
The clerk then sprung the following
romanza not from Tannhauser, upon

Tucson. Ariz., Dec. 3.
Hon. R. F. Campbell, Mayor of El Paso,
Sir if the city of El Paso desires
the option to extend the existing con
tract with the water company for two
years alter its expiration upon the
aine terms and conditions, said option
will be given by the water company.
President El Paso Water Co.
Judge Coldwell favored accepting
the option, and offered a resolution
with this in view, the city to pay Mr.
Watts $o to biud the bargain.
By Mr. Clifford "How much is the
thing going to cost?"
Judge Coldwell in sepulchral tones
"just five dollars "
Mr. Clinord suosiaeu into a state or
calm and peaceful reflection, as he
tapped his dome of thought meditati
vely for a few seconds, and then turned
to Mr. Stewart for a chew of tobacco
to assist him further in working the
cranial processes. Mr. Clifford has
seemed, by the way. quite lost now
that there is now more scrapping with
Colonel Ritter or the water company.
In lact the monastery quietness that
prevades the council chamber thete
days appears quite foreign, as it were:
he can not get usea to it. Mr. Stewart
too, seems to have lost the keen pug
nacity that so marked his utterances
while Colonel Hitter was on deck.
His grace, the mayor, sagely observ
ed that the reason of this communica
tion from Mr. Watts might without
any great mental effort be traced to
the levy of 13 mills for the sinking fund
of the water works. The mayor was
authorized to contract with Mr. Watts
for the option.

The lovely spring weather now en
shrouding the city ought to be blanket
enough for any reasonable hobo or
criminal. The request was finally re
ferred to the police committee with
power to act.
The council then sailed in to complete
the next tax levy, and made the total

little fun, told him all right, and then
ran along a little ahead of Mr. New

supposed to have gone on as far as
Ysleta, as he has not been heard from.
The supposition is that he had to lie
out in the cold and is badly frozen.

A bill has been drafted by the min

providing for the expenditure of i.140-

development of mining. According to
the provisions of the bill 75.000 may
be set aside lor assisting- companies
which are doing pioneering work, but
only t'25,600 can be spent annually.
The money is to be expended in sinking
or driving, or in obtaining machinery
and appliances for carrying on such
pioneering work, tor each pound oi
assistance received the companies must
expend a pound of their own money.
The repayment of this is to be made a
charge ou the first profit. Part of the

The OJd Fellows of the K! I 'aso local
lodges and a number of visiting broth
ers at !:30 o'clock marched from the
lodge room to the Ca!d well undertaking
parlors, where the lirst part of the
beautiful f uncial ceremony of that
order was performed. The body was
then borne by them to St. Clement's
Episcopal church, where the rector,
M. Cabell Martin, conducted the Epis
copal service for the dead, after which
the Odd Fellows again took the body
in charge and conducted it to the Odd
Fellows' cemetery at Concordia, where
the concluding ceremonies took place
over the grare. cjuite a concourse oi
citizens in carriages accompanied the
remains to the grave, in addition to the
members of the order of Odd Fellows:
and the beautiful final services at that
place were deeply affecting. At the
conclusion of the preliminary service
at the undertaking parlors, S. H.
Newman, a member of El Paso Lodge
No. 284, and an old-time friend of the
deceased, at the request of the lodge,
gave a short sketch of the life of the
deceased and pronounced an eulogy
upon him. Mr. Newman said:
Dear Friends ana .Brothers: As
Odd-Fellows we are met this bright
sunny morning to assist in the last sad
rites over the body of a Brother whose
soul has now passed "across the Great
Divide. We, who knew him, loved
bim. Those loved him most who knew
him best. Throughout the allotted
three score years au 1 ten which
marked the span of his life, he exem
plified the beauties of the principles
which as Odd-Fellows we. profess; and
while the fearful malady which has
aid him low was for years wasting his
trength and sinking its poisoned fangs
eeD into his vitals, ho bore his sutier-
ngs with fortitude and met with eheer-
ul smiles and Kindly words all with
horn he was brought in contact.
His hand was ever cheerfully extended
to a Brother in distress: and to bim, as
to every good Odd-bellow,
all mankind were Brothers.
Unassuming and unostentatious,
he made no account of the good he did.
but. ouittlv and with equanimity,
pursued his modest earee. of usefulness
and good-will towards his fellow man
His life affords a lesson by which we
all may profit, namely, that a cheerful
disposition is of more value than gold
and an honest heart the most priceless
iewei. His peaceful death these
mourning friends around his coffin
the blessings that from thojsands of
lips will be sweetly, gently showered
uuon Lis memory throughout this
southwestern land, all speak another
lesson of eoual import, and that is, that
"it is not all of life to live, nor all of
death to die." To such men as this,
our Brother, was, life presented work
to do, and he did it well; it showed him
duties to p2rform. and he parformed
them cheerfully. The success of such
a life is not measured by the amount of
gold piled up, nor by the splendor of
the monument placed over the grave:
but by the good it has done, the distress
it has relieved, the sunshine it
has shed over sad hearts,
the courage it has inspired
in those who else hsd succumbed to
life's trials, the example of cheerful
courage and perseverance under diffi
culties which it leaves behind. May
we all take these lessons to heart and
thus be ready, as hi was ready, when
our lamp of life shall be extinguished:
and may we be able then to say, as he
could say, "I have fought a good light,
I have finished my course, 1 have kept
Brother V. S. Shelby was born in
Montgomery county. Tennessee, Feb
ruary 5, i827, and before he had
reached his majority joined General
Taylor's army at the mouth of the Rio
Grande, in Mexico. Ill health drove
him back to his native state after six
months of service; but in 1852 he joined
the multitudes who were then flocking
to California, and remained in the
latter state until 1856, when he came to
New Mexico, where be has resided
almost continuously since. He -was
known throughout that Territory and
the southwest, and was universally
respected by those who knew him and
dearly beloved by those who were his
intimates. He was attacked some years
ago by a cancer on the face; and the last
two-years of his life have been passed
in ineffectual attempts at a cure. He
spent the past two winters in El Paso,
under treatment, and was so pleased
with our city and climate and people
that he returned this winter for further
treatment. He realized, however, that
his tenure of life was most uncertain
and wisely provided for the details that
he desired to have attended to when
the approrchhig -catastrophe should
overtake him. Two years ago
he instructed that his body should be
buried by the Odd Fellows in their
cemetery at Concordia, below thiscity,
and at subsequent intervals repeated
the instructions. We nre here today
to carry out his last wishes, as, some
day, those who remain behind will do
for each one of us. One of the duties
which Odd Fellowship enjoins is to
bury the dead: and every Odd Fellow
knows that his own grave will be gen
tly fashioned to receive him and that
his body will bo lowered into its
last resting place by loving hands.
