J. F. Eldridge, one of the most
prominent mine operators In Mexico
and well known in El Paso, has just
left for the republic after a brief visit
here. Mr. Eldridge Is the owner of the
Dos Cabezas mine situated about sixty
miles west of Casas Grandes. It is one
of the big mines of that region at the
present time but with the Improve
ments which Mr. Eldridge nas aeciaea
to make it will be one of the biggest
plants in the state of Sonora.
"While here Mr. Eldridge Informed
a Herald man that he was making ar
rangements to instal on the Dos Cabez
as a concentrating plant which will
handle 500 tons of ore a day. That
would be one of the largest reduction
works in the country. The ore he Is
getting out at the present time runs
as high as $1100 to the ton. Yhere are
over 300 miners working on the proper
tv at the Dresent time. -
Mr. Eldridge Is also Interested with
Mr. Harmon of Alamogordo In a large

money corresponding with those he se
cured from the banks he swindled be
fore his capture and punishment. But
the bankers of El Paso were too
shrewd for him. He was told he woulu
have to get an endorsement and he
went out and forged the name or a
prominent citizen as an endorser. He
returned and presented his check with
this endorsement, but the bank men
said they would send out and see if it
was o. k. and while they awaited the
coming of the endorser the swindler
disappeared as effectually as If the
earth had swallowed him up.
He was here in February and the
same month he showed tip at Ogden.
Vtah. where he swindled the Commer
cial National bank out of $200 and
made good his escape. His next at
tempt, was at Albuquerque on March
4 th, last, where he secured $200 and
His name is believed to be Charles
B. Hogg, but he seldom uses that name
in his workings of the banks. Some of
his aliases are Maddox. Thompson.- Mc

It is not yet known what disposition
will be made of this smooth criminal,
whether he will be tried In New Mexi

It is safe to bet that he will not oper
ate another forgery for several years
to come, for he will be placed where
he will not be led into temptation

Dillon Case Postponed.
The case of the United States against
Collector Dillon charged with solicit
ing and receiving contributions for po
litical, purposes, came up for hearing
yesterday afternoon. The case was
continued on Saturday last in order
to get the testimony of D. L. Creswell.
Inspector of customs at Deming. The
witness, was present and stated that he
was present at the meeting which was
held on Sunday. February 11. in the
collector's ofTlce. His testimony was
similar to that already given by the
other witnesses with the exception of
that in regard to theq uestion of funds
being solicited. It was his recollection
that it was the collector who first made
the suggestion. " On this point, how
ever, he was not positive. On cross
examination he said that he had never
been solicited by the collector and that
he had received the notification of the
meeting from Bloom or Fink.
Mr. Clark, counsel for the defense,
merequested that Hr. Bloom be recall
ed, the point in question being as to
whether Collector Dillon received the
$5 from Creswell or not. For this pur
pose the hearing was again postponed
nutil this afternoon.
The case was continued indefinitely
this afternoon by' Commissioner Howe
and will be taken up by agreement of
the district attorney and counsel for
the collector. Certain witnesses are
required and the time has been extend
ed in order to get them.
In the Federal Court.
The case of George A. Lambeth
against the Mexican Central railroad
was called for trial this morning in
the federal court before Judge Maxey.
The plaintiff claims damages in the
sum of $23,000 for personal injuries. In
his position he alleges that he was em
ployed by the company as an engineer;
that on March 20th. 1900. while the en
gine which he was running was pass
ing under a bridge about eight miles
south of Juarez, he was leaning out of
the cab watching a "hot box" when
he was struck on the top of the head
by a bolt projecting from a bridge post.
He claims that the bridge was improp

ThU magnificent station. rcprecmcu
y the accompanying cut. is erected n
i lie southwest corner of Walnut and
llroacl Stricts. It is the most Itcntitiful
structure in tin: South, ami the most
aU-M'l railr.wid building in the United
Stales. It is correct in design : ample
i iiroporiions; highly artistic in its
'eci 'rniion-; ingenious in adaptation of
rnn-irticiion ; elegant in its appoint
reni ; convenient in its arrangements,
ind is situated in that part of the city
where it stands ahnost alone in its
riure!y grandeur and serene lcauty as
a pJendid architectural triumph.
The style of architecture is what is
known as the. Romanesque, which carries
with it simplicity, massiveness, and
strength. It is Iniilt of the ttcautiful
oolitic Bowling Green grey limestone,
which gives the exterior a subdued as
pect, but with a sugse-tion of durability
and strength. It stands four stories in
height. The main tower rises in grace
ful outlines to the height of 220 feet with
a finial of a bronze statue of Mercury,
representative of science, commerce, and
the arts, as well as the graces of life and
the patron of travelers. The clork in
this big suare towei. when finished,
will 1h- unique in that it will have mov
able Mocks to indicate the hour in
stead of hands.
The main entrance to the building is
from Broad Street, which has a space un
derneath for a number of parallel rail
way tracks. One passes from the pave
ment on the viaduct into the loggia or
stone porch, which is supported by seven
massive stone arches, three in front and
two on either side. These arches rise
in graceful proportions and are elab
orately carved in a delicate tracery of
stone "work. The central arch in front
is higher and more imposing than the
others. The floor is laid with orna
mental tiling, and rises in the center by
t'.-ur steps to the level of the tloor in the
main waiting retort. The ceiling of the
loggia i paneled in oak and the roof Is
flat. There is a fine sculptured stone
entablature near the top. upon which a
iras-ive stone balustrade stands that rises
nl.ovc ami surrounds the roof lwlcony.
The l?ia conn; ft with three. vestibule.
iv a trio of heavy archways eorrespond
i!Mj in height to the front arches of the
!.V?ia. All these arches arc artistically
carved and pre-ent the mo-t perfect out
lines of 'Romanesque beauty.
The im-rior of the main waiting
r"Km. by i's imposing Iwauty. excites the
most eniii'isiastic admi.ation. The
harmony of its proportions leaves in the
nind the impressions oi fitness, elegance,
nd magnificence. This hall is ioo feet
long, 65 feet wide, and 65 feet high. Its
ceilm forms one solid arch lighted by a
large skylight of ornamental glass in the
rM.f. Tennessee marble is u-cd in the
wainscoting, with a base of black marble.
The wall between the Tennessee marble
and the interior corridor, which forms a
I rtak in the continuity of the vertical
'iues at the second story, is done in a rich
'live or colonial green, lighted up with
il'.c splendor of gola and capped by a cor
nice alo decorated with gold. The
brackets which apparently support the
corridor arc large in size, giving an idea
of support and strength and majesty.
.lxve the corridor shades of much light
er green arc used, tipped with yellow or
.name, with brighter golden tints.
Higher tip the green fades into a yellow
and green, which blend in lieautiful har
.liony with the art glass in the panels that
f .riii the top of the arch. The whole
"re-co work of the walls is splendid in
.xecution and give's an added glory to
'.:e magnificence of the hall.

two comely maidens are stretching out

hall is laid with ornamental tiles, and i
a rich mosaic work varied in design and
elegant in its subdued colors.
This princely hall may be lighted at
night by two magnificent chandelier.:

lights. Resides these, there are fron;
thirty to forty groups of lights, ranging
from two to six lights each, disposed a":!

Time and space will not permit of n

waiting room. In its gorgeousness and
beauty, its colorings and designs, it re
sembles the kingly palaces of trance be
fore the revolution. The divinest of
arts, sculpture and painting, have leen
freely employed in making it the most
artistic, the most attractive, the most
pleasing, and withal, the most comfort
able waiting room in America.
The ladies' waiting room, which occu
pies tjic northwestern corner, is fifty feet
square, and is a dream of beauty. 1 An
ornamental square fireplace gives relief
to the western wall. The room is fres
coed in yellow with wreaths of pink roses
on the ceiling. There are six lacquered
brass chandeliers that add manifold
splendors to this tastefully decorated
room at night. The windows are em

The waiting room for the colored pas
sengers is thought by many to be the
most beautiful of all the small waiting
rooms. It is frescoed in several shades
of tea green, and presents a most attract

The dining room occupies the north
east corner. It is frescoed in rose color
with artistic designs on the ceiling in
buff. It has a richly decorated fireplace
and mantels. The room is very hand

The lunch room is in the southwest
corner, and is frescoed in blue. Between
