Francisco Portiilo Has Many
Evidences of Ability He
May Eemain Permanently.
Will Francisco Portiilo remain as
jefe politico of Juarez?
That is the question now most interesting-
to the people of the Mexican
city across the river. There is great
preparation for activity In much needed
civic Improvements, much need of a
cool head to direct the affairs of the
city. And Francisco Portiilo is pointed
to as the man for the -work.
It still Is a doubt whether he -will
stay. Air. Portiilo arrived only a few
weeks ago to take the place of Felix
Barcenas, now in the City of Mexico.
But yet no definite word has been re
ceived. Mr. Portiilo was commissidned
by governor Creel to fill a supposedly
temporary vacancy, usually occupied
by one of the alternatives to the chief
A Municipal Expert.
Already the new jefe has begun
work with, all apparent intentions to
emain. Already the people of Juarez
are enthused with his energy and abil
ity. As a city builder Mr. Portiilo, by
profession a civil engineer, has a long
and brilliant record. His whole life
has been devoted to the sort of work
most needed by the border city. He
has served as Jefe politico of many
Mexican cities, and is highly skilled In
the business management of munici
palities. Educated in 3Iexico City.
He was born in Santa Rololia, now
called Ciudad Camargo, but early went
to the City of Mexico. There he was
educated .in the old literary institute,
specializing In philosophy and mathe
matics. At the age of 17 years he again went
to the capital, where he studied at the
National Preparatory schools and en
tered his course in the national school
of engineers, xeceiving his title after a
highly percentaged examination. At an
cany age ne wa. j.iju.j.i.-;u. Ji-w- ,

After some years in this service, Mr.
Portiilo was appointed to a special
commission on the national debt invest
ment, which finished certain payments.
After concluding this work, he contin

name as financier of custom houses,
mines, rafllways, parts, and general
In 1903 he received the appointment
as jefe politico of the Camargo dis

During his administration in Camar

buildings 'of that city, arranging the
special departments for the judges, mu

plaza; rebuilt the Hidalgo monument
in the plaza of the same name. Also

Alderman Blumenthal Says
on tile Contrary They
The Cameron stockyards, down in
the second ward, are not going to harm
anybody and will do the city a great
deal of good, alderman Blumenthal
Discussing the recent action of the
city council relative to first stopping
the work and then allowing it to go on,
alderman Blumenthal said:
"John T. Cameron secured a permit
from the building inspector to build
the stockyards in question and no .
member of the council knew that suclr
action had been taken or that they
were in course of construction. He
simply did not know how to go about
it, and was not aware of the fact that
he must secure permission from the
sanitary committee of the council to
build the pen.
"Therefore, when the matter was
brought to the attention of the mayor,
he ordered the chief of police to stop
the construction and Cameron came
around to see about it, explaining the
situation. Mayor Sweeney then ap
pointed a committee, composed of alder
men Eobinson, Clayton and myself, to
investigate. We found that the build
ings were. 1200 feet east of the Rosen
baum grain elevator along the bank of
the Rio Grande, and not calculated to
become a nuisance, so he was permitted
to go ahead with the buildings.
"Cameron will import from 20,000 to
30,000 head of cattle a month from Mex
ico, and we must encourage the start
ing of such enterprises. Cameron's rea
son for constructing the yards was that
he had been shipping to other yards
in the city and they had been charging
him $1 per bale for alfalfa, which
worked a hardship on him, as he could
not afford to pay uch a price for feed.
I believe the stockyards will benefit
El Paso and will not injure anyone, be
cause they are so located as not to In
terfere with residents; In fact, a better
location could not be found."

HILL OVER DDHIG
Is to Be on the Hill Above
the Payne Cottages Baby
Sanatorium ta Be Located
Cloudcroft lodge will be located on
the top of the hill near the W. F. and
D. M. Payne cottages, between Panther
avenue, and Corona place, in block 30,
of the Cloudcroft reservation.
Engineer J. L. Campbell, of the
Southwestern, architect Ottenheimer
and contractor Frank Powers .have re
turned from the mountains, where they
went to stake out the ground plan of
the new lodge, which is to replace the
old one, destroyed by fire last June.
The site of the new hotel is about
1500 feet from the site of the old one
on Chipmunk avenue, and is in a loca
tion which commands a view of the
white sands, High Rolls, the White
mountains and the San Andres range.
' .The new lodge is located in the cen
ter of the loop made by Panther avenue
and Corona place, and faces almost di
rectly west, overlooking the snowy
white sands below Alamogordo valley.
The lights of the lodge can be seen
plainly from the main line railroad
at night. Although no definite an
nouncement has yet beep made regard
ing a change in the mountain line, sur
veys have been made from a point above
the present station to the site of the
new lodge, with a view of putting a
spur in to run to the door of the hotel
when completed. The spur would run
around up Chautauqua canyon.
Contractor Frank Powers has ship
ped a carload of material to the moun
tains and will establish his camp at the
head of Chautauqua canyon.
The site for the baby sanatorium,
which was also selected at the same
time the hotel was -staked off, is to be
east of the new hotel, across Swallow
place and facing the hotel. This will
make it convenient for parents having
sick children to stay at the hotel and
.be near their babies in the sanatorium.
In addition to the work on the new
lodge and sanatorium, ia number of new
cottages are being erected in the moun
tains. W. G. Rowe is having a number
of cottages moved from Russia to the
Cloudcroft reservation, and is having
them rebuilt and given a rustic exterior
appearance by covering them with the
rough bark from the sawmills..
At High Rolls a number of cottages
are being built, in addition to the new
35 room hotel, which will be ready for
use this season. The Cloudcroft Com
mercial company is also building a
large store in North Cloudcroft, in
preparation for the rush which is ex
pected this summer.
