Just a few doses regulate the
Ej&aeys and Bladder and
make lame backs feel fine.
The most effective and harmless way
to cure backache and regulate out-of-order
kidneys, or end bladder trouble,
is to take several doses of Pape's Diu
retic. You -will distinctly feel that your
kidneys and urinary organs are being
cleansed, healed and vitalized, and all
the miserable symptoms, such as back
ache, headache, nervousness, rheuma
tism and darting pains. Inflamed or
swollen eyelids. Irritability, sleepless
ness, or suppressed, painful or frequent
urination (especially at night) and
other distress, leaving- after taking the
first few doses.
The moment you suspect any kidney
or urinary disorder, or rheumatism,
begin taking this harmless preparation

Q. Then you don't know whether there
was a proportion of one to 40 between
that place and this place or not, do
you?
A. No, I don't; bnt I know this, we
had a similar question pending there
and I had all the figures in regard to
the matter; I think I could find those
figures at home.
Q. Tou are as accurate about that as
you are about this matter here, are you7

A. Well, I did not go into the details
of it all, only in a general way.
Q. How many wells did you estimate?
I am trying to get a conservative es
timate, A. I did not estimate that.
Q. How many pipe lines into the city
did you consider in your estimate?
Juxt Guessed at It.
A. I did not estimate that at all; I
iust guessed at it.
Q. Then it was not a conservative es
timate, was it?
A. I considered it a conservative es
timate; now, I will tell you something
I based that estimate largely by the re
port made by the Hunt people when
they estimated the value of this entire
plant, including all their holdings at
$713,000.
Q. Do you think they did that? That
they estimated all the holdings of the
International Water company at ?713F
000. A. Tcs. sir; that is my understanding.
Q. Is that as accurate as the rest of
your Information?
A. I suppose it is.

Q. How may pipe lines did you bring
in from the mesa?
A. I did not bring in any.
Q. Hew many pipe lines, did you take
into consideration in making your es
timate? A. "What am I to understand by pipe
lines; do you mean water mains?

A. I did not figure out definitely how
many there would be.
Q. Well, in making a conservative es
timate, how many did you allow for?
A. I am not a waterworks expert, and
I
Q. How many lines did you allow
for?
A. I did not consider the number of
Hnes.
Q. How much did you consider the
cost of each well?
Mr.-Hagfces Said
A- Let me explain in regard to that,
Mr. Hughes told me that according to
his estimate, these wells are from-40 to
0 feet deep, and there is a supply of
water there that is inexhaustible; he es
itimated that the cost of pumping would
be light.
Q. How many of the wells of Mr.
Hughes entered into this estimate? How
xmany wells were you going to use?
A. I don't know.
Q. What was each well going to cost
in your conservative estimate?
A. I had no idea, but it would not
cost much, as they were shallow wells.

Q. Tou don't "know one thing on
earth about how many of these wells

A. No sir, I do not.

Q. Tou would?
A, Tes sir.
Q. "Where would you put it? Out
on the mesa?
A. No sir. I would put it down in
East El Paso, or down here in the
Chamizal zone.
"City Water as Good' as Mesa "Water."
Q. Tou think one water is the same
as another, do you?
A. No sir, but there is a subterra
nean stream of water that extends all
across under this city mat is just as
good here as it Is out on the mesa.
Q. Tou don't pay any attention to
the chemical Analysis of this water, do
you?
A. Sure.
Q. Well, then, you know there is as
much difference between the waters as
rhDfftp rmf-TTrooTi rrmn nn TnM-iriiiii.
there"is between mud and marble.
A. Xo sir. I don't know that; if
there is any difference in the water up
there on the mesa and this underlying
water, I don't know It.
Q. Tou don't know that there is a
difference between the water on the
mesa and the Hadlock gardens, do you?
A. Xo sir.
May Have Read It, But
Q. Tou did not read that in the
Hunt company's report, did you?
A. Well, I may have read It, but
Q. Well, did it show there that one
was the best water in this country,
and the other next to the worst?
A. Xo sir.
Q. Tou look at that and see if it Is
not so.
A. All right, I will do so.
Q. Tou say that below the city lies
an inexhaustible supply of pure water.
What Is your authority for that?
A. I judge so from reports.
Q. Reports of whom?
A. From reports I have read and
from my own idea; if I am not mis
taken Q. Do you think the Hunt experts
reported that It was the same water
down here in town as It Is out on the
mesa?
A. Here Is my impression of It;
that the Hunt experts reported that
there was an Immense subterranean
stream underflowing the mesa, the city
of El Paso and the Rio Grande.
Didn't Look Into Analysis.
Q. Why is it then that they get en
tirely different water down here fiyjm
what they get up there, In analysis?
A. I don't know.
Q. Tou did not look into that, did
you? Tou just wrote it up as being the
same "water.
A. Well, that was my opinion
Q. Was that your opinion based
upon an examination of the two waters?
A. Xo sir.
Q. Based on what, then?
A. Based on the reports I had read
and conversations that I had with dif
ferent people.
Q. - With whom?
Forgets His Authority.
A. I don't know as I remember now.
It is impossible for me to recall right
off hand.
Q. . Tou cannot remember that any
one ever told you it was the same wa
ter, can you?
A. Xo sir, but I had that impres
sion, gained from conversation with
different people and I read it in these
reports.
Q. In this morning's paper, there
is a statement to the effect that a
large amount of the stock of the In
ternational Water company had been
distributed for influence. j
A. Xo sir. That was the report
Q. Who reported it? v
-A. I don't know, but. it was re
ported to me

"Merely a Rnmor."

writing an editorial, It is just an ex

Q. Was that an expression of your
opinion? j
A. For two or three years I have
been given to understand
Q. By whom?
A. That large blocks of this stock
had been given for promotion purposes.
Q. By whom had you been given to
understand that?
Heard It In Xeivs Oftce.
A. I don't remember who it was
told me that, but I remember that I
heard it at the Xews office. -
Q. At the Xewsoffice?
A. Tes sir.
Q. Would you believe anything that
you ever heard in ,the Xews office?
A. Well I happened to. see a few
things myself that I would" believe.
Q. Then you are expressing It as
your opinion that blocks of this stock
had been issued for Influence?
A. Xo, sir; I
Q. That is what you say here that
large blocks of stock have been issued
for influence.
A. Xo, sir; I stated that it was re
ported Q. Then this was intended as a news!
Item, was it?
A. Well, I had heard it reported
Q. Was that intended as a news .item,
or was it intended as your opinion?
A. That is merely an editorial and
was written as my opinion.
Doesn't Even Believe It.
Q. So, it is your opinion that blocks
of stock in the International Water
company have been given out for In
fluence dn this town, is it?
A. I would .not say that it was my
opinion, although I had nothing but
heresay evidence to make me think that
it was.
Q. And that is the kind of stuff that
you are prfntlng as editorials, making
statements about other men having been
Influenced by receiving stock?
A. Xo, sir. Let me explain
Q. What are you doing then?
A. I am trying to do the best I can
by my employer and the community
and advocating what I believe to bo
right and just and for the best interests
of the people, under the direction of
my employers.
What He Was Trying to Do.
Q. What was the impression you were
trying to create here by your article
this morning?
Ai The impression I was trying to
create by that article and every other
antlcle on the water question, was that
the people of EI Paso were entitled to
pure water and good service; and if
these reports were true, the people
were entitled to know that; and if they
were not true, in justice to El Paso,
the reports ought to be disproved.
Q. Tou published a lot of this stuff
on Information given you by certain
people here in regard to city officials
A. Xo, sir.
Q. Why did you do it then?
A. Because these reports were going
about and I believed we were entitled
to know the truth in the matter; that
the court was entitled to know it, and
that the citizens were entitled to know
it.
Can't Xante Authority.
Q. Is there anj'body you could name
that told you that?
A. Xo, sir; but I will tell you this
no, I cannot name anyone. I was go
ing to ask you if you had not heard -It
yourself.
Q. Tes. Through the Times and the
Xews.
A. From nobody else?
Q. Xo. I am trying to get at the
truth in the matter right now.
A. "Well, I am sorry I cannot enlight
en you.
Q- Did you mean by that article t
morning to bring before the master, or
before the couvt, or before the public,
that there had been stock of the Inter
national Water company Issued for in
fluence? Was that your purpose?
"Reported, Rumored."
A. Xo, sir. I meant to bring out the
fact that it had been reported that it
wag rumored.
Q. What was the importance of the
report, If you were not sure of it? Tou
did not verify the information, did you?
A. Xo, sir.
Q. Well, you were informed then. Can
you name anyone who told you that?
A. Xo, sir, I cannot; but this man
has heard dt and he can probably give
you some information.
Q. Do you know anyone else who
could give us any information with re
gard to this report.
A. Xo, sir.
Q. Do you" know anyone can you re
member anyone you ever heard make
that charge?
A. Xo, I do not remember now.
Never Spoke Much to Morehead.
Q. Do you think that a man by the
nama of C. R. Morehead could give any
Information on that subject?
A. I don t know. I never spoke two I
uuzen woras to jur. Jdorehead in my
life.
Q. I will ask you if you did not stand
down there on Oregon street, between
the State Xational bank and the
Brunschwig building, on the street, and
talk to him for some little length of
time?
A. I stood there for a minute or so.
Q. But you said you never talked to
him more than a dozen words in vom
life.
A. Well, I would not be ashamefl to
talk to Mr. Morehead.
Q. Is it a fact that you never spoke
half a dozen words to him in your life!
A. Oh, probably a dozen
Q. Well, a dozen, then?
Talked to Morehead and Stanton.
A. That was the second time I had
ever met him, and he Introduced me to
judge Stanton; we stood there maybe
for three or four minutes tniiri,, j
tne,u I went on about my business.
ny" Uian t you stand there talking &r
j.u jimmies watn xur. .Morehead arer i
.Stanton left?
A. Xo, sir; I did not.
Q. Are you sure about that? I have
half a dozen witnesses to prove that
you did. l
A.. Tes, sir, I am sure.
Q. Is this statement true, "So gen
erally and widely known became the
fact some years ago that El Paso had
as ine and pure artesian water as anv
city on. earth, that the beneficial re
sults were at once apparent." is thn
true? l
A. Tes, sir.
Q. Don't you know that El Paso has
spent nearly $25,000 in trying to trt
artesian water?
A. Xo. sir, I don't know anything
about that. , "ng
Q. Tou know they never got a dron
of artesian water in this town. nnnK
you? ' l
A. Xo, sir. "
Q. Where did they get any?
A. On -tho mesa.
HijjJTdea of Artesian "Water.
Q. What kind of water was if "Was
it flowing water?
A. The kind of water the Interna
tional Water company is supposed to
furnish the people of El Faso is arte
sian water; it comes from 500 or finn
foot wells. u
Q. Tou don't mean to convey the idei
that they they have rot artesian wa
ter in- the sense in which that word
used in this part of the country, do you1
A. It has the same meaning every
where. Hfii Definition of Artesian "Water.
Q. Lm't artesian water flowing water
in the commonly accepted sense of the
word? "
A. Xo, sir, it is not. In my Idea, any
water is artesian water that Is brought
from subterranean sources brought to
the surface from a considerable depth.
Q. "Another interesting fact disclosed
was that the cost of pumping water
was 6.2 cents per 1000 gallon?, and the
averago price received was IS cens pei
1000 gallons a net profit of 300 per-
sent." Did you think that was so?
A. Tes, sir; I judged so from the
statements ol the general manager and
receiver.
The Cost of "Water.
Q. Well, did you make any allowance
for distribution?
A. Xo, sir.
Q. Then all the costs you allowed foj
is the cost of pumping, is it?
A. That is the first cost of the wator
Q. That Is the first cost of the water?
That Is what you think, it is?
A. Tes, sir. Having all the pipes and
mains; we wil3 let that go In for what
It is worth I am net an expert but hav
ing all the pipes and mains. It seems
to me that the cost would be very
slight and you would have 300 percent
to go on.
Cost of Delivering "Water.
Q. Tou just estimate then, that it
is just a small matter that the distri
bution of water through a big system
does not cost anything. Is that your
Idea?
A. Well, It seems to me that it would
not cost much.
Q. What do you mean by much? How
many cents?
A. It does not cost anything like 300
percent.
Q. I am asking how much in cents;
what would it amount to in cents?
A. I have no idea.
Sees Bis Profits.
Q. Well, what do you mean by that?
Do you think that because you have got
the water out that there is a 300 per
cent profit?
A. Tes. sir; approximately
Q. In other words, when it costs 6
cents to raise it alone, and you seli it
for IS cents, there Is 300 percent profit
is that right?
A. Approximately, yes sir.
Q. Do you stick to that? Think that
over and see if you are right.
A. Tes, sir; I stick to that. It is
only a question in mathematics.
Q. So IS cents is 300 percent profit
on, 6 cents, is it?
A. Tes, sir; approximately.
"A Typographical Error."
Q. "The commission does not doubt
that unlimited capital could be found
for investment in a water plant here, as,
the known fact that pure water can be
obtained at one-fourth of a cent per
gallon and sold for 20 cents per 1000
gallons with a properly and modernlv
equipped plant proves a bonanza," At
a quarter of a cent a gallon, what
'would a thousand gallons cost?
A. That is a typographical error; it
Q. What would that amount to at a
quarter of a cent a gallon?
A. Xo. sir; that is an error. It was
six and a quarter cents a gallon.
Q. What do you mean to say it was?
A. It should be six and a quarter
cents.
Q. But it Is written out; the one
fourth Is written out in letters.
"Printer Left Ont Something."
A. That is an error there. The
printer left out something.
Q. What did you mean to put in
there, then?
A. I meant to say that it was six and
a quarter cents for a thousand gallons.
Q. So that it what you think you
means. Is it?
A That is what I meant. Tes, sir.
Q. Tou know that it can be produced
for that, do you?"
A. I do not know that, but I basea
my opinion on what they say.
Q. Because of the known fact that
pure water can be obtained at six and
a quarter cents r thousand gallons-
is mat a Known fact?
A. Tes. sir. It is a known fact.
Q. By whom is it known?
A. Why. it Is demonstrated by the
International Water company.
Q. Xo it Is not.
"The Cost of Pumping
A. Well, they say they pump their
water from the Mesa wells at a cost of
six and a quarter cents per" thousand
gallons.
Q. Xo. they do not say that.
A. That is a question of detail
Q. It is a question of being true or
not being true. '
A. I took it that the Water company
themselves said so.
Q. So you mean to say that that
quarter of a cent per gallon was a typo
graphical error?
A. Tes, sir. - j
Did Xot Correct Error.
Q. Was that typographical error cor
rected the next day?
A. Xo. sir.
Q. Why wasn't it?
A. I suppose it was overlooked. I
did not have the matter called to my
attention, but it is manifestly an error
on the face of it.
Q. And in itself, it is manlfestlv false
Did not Mr. Hughes tell you he could
produce water at one quarter of a cent?
A. Xo, sir. He never did; he has

Q. And you acted on them without

A. I accepted them as true; he .stated

Q. But you don't know whether there
are any wells there or not yourself, do
you?
A. Xo, sir; I do not.
Q. Tou do know that they will not

don't you?
A. Xo, sir; because I have his state

Q. Do I understand that It is your

that I know absolutelj' nothing of the

Thomas on Stand.
Upon the conclusion of Mr. Tipton's
testimony, B. G. Thomas, manager of
the Times, was called by attorney Bur
ges to testify. i
Mr. Thomas stated 'that he had not
written any of the editorials appear
ing In the Times for the past two
months; that he did not know of any
blocks of International Water company
stock having been placed to carry in
fluence, and that he was not in favor
of abandoning the mesa as-a source of
water supply for El Paso, until a ieter
field was found.
Anderson On Stand Again.
The testimony of superintendent W.
E. Anderson of the watef company, in
reference to relative water conditions
and the- conditions of operating expenses
in El Paso and other Texas cities, was
continued this morning.
,A comparison between Fort Worth
and El Paso was first made, during
which it was stated that at Fort "Worth
the net earning per year, dating from
Jan. 1, 1905, has been $34.86 per million
gallons. In 1909. 1.425 million gallons
of water was pumpe;, mamng the net
earnings of the plant $49,305.
The Fort "Worth Plant.
I The investment at Fort Worth,
which is municipally owneG, is valued
at $l,S0O,O00, and the earnings of $34. SG
was stated by Mr. Anderson zo Oe 2.68
percent, which he estimated to be about
sufficient to care for the sinking fund
and for repairs at 'the plant. At Fort
Worth, "it was also stated, about one
third of the water pumped is accounted
for, and that the meter rate is 30 cents
per 1000 gallons.
TIic Austin Rate.
At Austin, the water is obtained from
a supply tunnel and Mr. Anderson
stated that the pumping of water at El
Paso Involves 5 1-4 times more work.
During the cross examination con
ducted by city attorney Coldwell, Mr.
Anderson reviewed the statements rela
tive to conditions at Austin and Fort
Worth.
Rate Is High Here.
He also testified that the water rate
in El Paso was greater, per inhabitant,
than in any other city in Texas, with
the exception of Fort Worth, and ex
cluding Fort Worth, that the price paid
by the average consumer in El Pnso
was $1.21 compared with $1 in other
Texas cities.
On the redirect examination of snnw-
Intendent Anderson, by attorney Burges
for the water company stockholders,
he stated that, excluding the service
supplied to runway companies and large
manufacturing establishments in El
Paso, the rate per inhabitant would be
less than in other cities in Texas.
"Water Is Good.
In answer to a question by governor
Sayers as to the quality of mesa water
compared with water supplied in other
Texas cities. Mr. Anderson stated that
it was better, excepting Fort WorJ
and San Antonio, where, he said, water
conditions are almost perfect.
During his testimony this morning
Mr. Anderson also, stated that the fuel
cost for pumping water at Austin,', as
shown by his figures relative to condi
tions in Texas cities, was"$l per 1,000,
000 gallons, compared wtfi $8.98 in El
Paso. The actual operating expenses
at Austin were also staged by Mr. An
derson to be SS.46 per 1,000.000 gallons,

Another step has been made against
keno and debt dodging. And it will be
an effective one, it is assured.
Soon the Business Men's Protective
association will cause the circulation of
a paper to be signed by merchants. It
will be a protest against "dead beats"
and will carry assurance that the cus
tom will not be tolerated among em
ployes. Coppies of the petition with the at
tached names, will be posted in the
stores of the signers. So every employe
may see the extent of the feeling
against the game of 'hide and seek with
collectors. "
Investigations of the keno houses by
detectives will result in a report within
a few weeks. Xames of those who fre
quent the Juarez gambling houses will
be furnished all merchants. If the em
ploye plays keno and. still pays hi3
debts, actiony will be up to the in-
rKx'irliml nrrmlnver. Tnip investigation
j will merely cause the comparing of the
keno player lists and. the records of
iiaDituai aeot aoagers.
