the monument to the statue of Peace,
the "Christ of the Andes" between Ar
gentine and Chili.
Unveiling- th Monument.
From the speaker's stand, the gover
nor, followed by a long line of frock
coated officials, walked upon the sec
ond section of the monument, and,
grasping the veil rope, gave the un
successful pull which has aroused such
comment of symbolism. A cannon
roared the first 21 salutes, bands clash
ed, and crowds cheered. Facing tlue
crowds which thronged about the
statue, the governor pronounced a for
mal word of inauguration.
Thence governor Sanchez and his fol
lowers, walked to the nearby place
where the foundation of the new mu
nicipal palace is being lid. There he
performed the laying of the corner
stone. Three pretty girls, Miss Emma
Montes, with bucket; Hiss Carolina Ve
larde, with sprinkler, and Miss Eu
genia Aleman, with trowel, performed
the Masonic function ter the docu
ments were placed in the stone. A trow
el used for the ceremony was especial
ly made in El Paso of ebony and silver
for the purpose.
Hospital nnd Library Dedicated.
As the next stage in the ceremonies,
officials wiere seated within the just
finished walls of the new and only li
brary of Ciudad Juarez, facing the new
monument on the municipal square in
the southeastern part of the city. There
Manuel Areo, representing the Spanish
committee which raised funds for the
building, delivered the address. Gov
ernor Sanchez made response.
Still the work of inauguration, was
not completed. Carriages brought the
officials to the recently recreated
Juarez hospital, which tops a hill at
the south of tiie city, an ideal location
for fresh air and a pretty view. The
governor inspected the 11 bedrooms of
the infirmary, which will he ready for
use within a few days.

Shortly before 1 oclock. more than
100 men sat at banquet in the gover
nor's honor in hotel Porfirio Diaz.
Reyes's orchestra played In the door
of the big dining hall, so closely were
the tables packed. Seven courses with
three wines were enjoyed by prominent
Juarez officials, the visitors from the
south and a few American guests from
El Paso. During the ceremonies, post
master J. A. Smith and consul T. D.
Edwards had accompanied the offici-
ating party, and mayor C. E. Kelly, A. '

as a successor of Enriqup C. Creel, of

"In no place in the republic has the

pretty compliment offered by the gov
ernor. He spoke of many things of in

credit of tho works to exgovernor

"There was a little boy," said judge
Harper, who spoke for mayor Kelly.

"That," said the El Paso judge, "may
illustrate Mexico and the United States.
A determination for independence has
brought us together." The speech was
made in English, Felix Marteniz, of El

spoke as representative of tho American-Mexican,

From the banquet table the diners
went to the customs house, where the
women of the city gave a tea in honor
of the governor. The beautiful patio
hall, created for the meeting of the two
presidents, was aglow with color and
light, an orchestra played, and tea, cof
fee and ices with sweets were served
to more than 300 invited guests, includ
ing Col. A. C. Sharpe and staff of Fort

Many Band Concert.
During the day band concerts were
held in the Constitution plaza, and the
whole city, with visitors from the south
and north and manv Americans from
EI Paso, flocked through the streets,
visited the gambling games and the
bull ring. After three days of rain,
the sun shone on the feasting city.
Muddy streets were dried, and the peo
ple took advantage of the change by
turning out in full force.
Everything of the day's program
went without a single hitch, com
mandant Ponce de Leon of police di
recting the procession. Only at the un
veiling of the statue did the mounted
police have difficulty in handling the
crowds, but no accidents occurred and
a minimum of arrests were recorded,
although saloons opened Saturday
night after a three days' drouth.
A Great Tribute.
The Juarez statue and national mon
ument has been erected at a cost or
more than $150,000. Xot only as to
cost, but as a work of art, it stands
alone within a radius of many miles of
El Paso. Its bronze Juarez and four
marble pieces were made in Italy by
special order. The whole monument,
from the ground to the tip of the pa
triot's right hand, which is raised to
the sky as he holds in his left arm a
furled flag, is about 100 feet high, and
at the base nearly 200 feet in diameter. .
o..c (.uiui jv-nciue i especially siriKing.
All is bronze in color with the excep
tion of the white marble statues at
either side of the base. The marble of
the base and the high column on
which stands the Juarez is of an un
usual bronze colored stone, blending In
with metal tablets of bronze.
Each stage of the monument repre
sents a period of Mexican history. The
first tier of stones are formed in Aztec
design, symbolic of the indian period,
the second circle of the base is of Span
ish form, representing the period of
foreign rule, and the column itself
tells of the Mexican Independence with
the statue of Juarez triumphant on its
tip. The figure of the patriot stands
14 feet, the four symbolic pieces being
about twice average human height.

president of Mexico.
The Famous Oct. 15.
It was on the memorable 15th of
October preceding the meeting day of
the two republican presidents. Since
noon the streets of the Mexican border
city had been filled with marching
troops. The clank of the sabre clad of
ficers, the trill of trumpets and the
blare of military bands had disturbed
the quiet of the peaceful town of the
Mexican mission. Marching through
colonnade bordered streets, the army of
northern Mexico had been reviewed by
their commander In chief. Plumed
aids strutted In and out of the tem
porary executive palace as the hero of
an hundred battles stood with bared
head and shoulders thrown back as the
army, his army, swung past In review.
CIvllInn SuppInulH Soldier.
Quickly the scene shifted. Instead
of 4he pomp of power the setting was
that of civic simplicity. The cavalry
and infantry guards were in the back
ground. Frock coated citizens and
school children, hundreds of them
wearing the tricolor of their country,
occupied the center of the stage. In
stead of the gray of the review the man
of destiny wore the citizen dress ot i
awiiuie uuiui. ine bun uu iuiit,-' ouhii-
mered from the nickel steel helmets ot
the bodyguard. The softness of a south
western indian summer evening had
settled over the cross crowned city ol
: the north.
Seated on an improvised platform, t
with a gaudy colored background of i
painted canvas, the grand old man of
Mexico listened patiently, almost stoi
cally', to the lengthy addresses of the i
leading citizens who extolled the vir- j
tues of the country's hero, who was to
I be honored in the town where he had j
made his military headquarters. In the
half light of the autumn evening, all
of the indian blood of his ancestors
shown in the rugged face of the first
citizen-soldier of the republic.
The Bands Play Softly.
Everything was in kee"in"- n
longer did the bodyguards gallop to
and fro like watch uogs. xue ...u.
dente was among his own people. In
stead of the crash of military music, the
Banda Policia, grouped to the right of
the dais, crooned the softest, sweetest
music ever made by wood winds and
mellow brass. It was like a devotional
service. The human pipe organ played
the strains of a hymn, the beloved
hymn of Mexico. The venerable patri
arch arose as the music swelled into a
crescendo of harmony. The vast audi
ence which filled the open circle
a.rose as one. A trumpet off to the
south in the camp of the cavalry wailed
Really Imid Cornerstone.
Stepping down from the platform
with a firm tread, the world figuro
walked across the carpeted space to the
cement base of the monument. There, I
surrounded by the Important person- j
ages of the republic, the president laid
the first stone of the monument for on
of the triumvirate of heroes of which
he was one. The act was not merely a
form. Grasping the silver itrowel firm
ly, he laid the cornerstone -with all
the care and skill of a master mason.
None of the work was left to others.
He spread the mortar from the silver
champagne holder, the block was low
ered by the Agricultural colege stu
dents, the president guided it to its
final resting place, tapped it on the top
after the trick of an expert. The work
had been well done.
In the center of the new municipal
plaza soon to be surrounded by city '
and state buildings, the Benito Juarez
monument is symbolic of the republic
for which the man whose memory it
honors fought. Imposing in its height
of marble column, surrounded by the i
neroic bronze of beloved Bei.ito Juar
ez, the monument, the cornerstone ot
which was laid by a world he'-o, stands
as an epitome of republican progress,
of the rise of Mexican liberty from the
darkness of Spanish oppression, o the
sunlight of Independence.
