Building, Rebuilding and
Changing of Fronts Keep
Business District in Turmoil.
BHUTY 10 li
Working all night Thursday to pour
the concrete floor of the new Sheldon,
the-concrete crew across the plaza ran
an opposition business to the men on
the Anson Mills building, where the
'concrete for the seventh floor was run.
The lobby of the Sheldon is now being
prepared for the finishers, the two
main stairways completed and the bat
tery of Otis elevators installed. The El
Paso Bank and Trust company's rooms
are also being completed in the rough.
White House Improvements.
As soon as Krause & Reeser com
plete the plans for the Coles building
charges, the "White House will extend
the glass front of the Oregon and San
Antonio street corner around Oregon
street for a number of new display
windows. Other improvements will, be
made on the interior of the "White
Three Cars of Glass.
Three cars of glass have been receiv
ed by the L. "W. Hofficker Plate Glass
company for the new skyscrapers. One
car will be used in the American Bank
building and will be set as soon as
the window frames 'are in place. Each
of the cars contain 36,000 pounds of
the glass, making 108,000 pounds, and
it will be used in the different build
ings now in process of construction.
The brick work on the American build
ing has been stopped because of the
failure of the brick shipments to ar
rive. A fire at the factory caused the delay
and it is expected to complete the
building as soo'n ' as the material ar
rives. The metal entrances to the
banking rooms are being set. They
have an eagle -with outstretched wings
over the door and the name of the
bank in raised letters.
Another store front is to be built on
Texas street above Stanton by M. ilel
vin for rental purposes.
Preparing: for Calisher Buildings
The old Laurie hardware store has
been -wrecked for the new Calisher
building, the plans of which have been
completed, and the contract will be
awarded next -week. The J. Calisher
company is remodeling the north room
of the "Welch building, on Stanton
Stanton street, for use as Santa Claus'
headquarters during the holidays.
The first floor "rooms of the Buckler
building are being plastered and the
interior woodwork added. The stair
way to the second floor is also being
built and the new entrance on Tobin
arcade, which connects Mesa and Or
egon street on the north side of the
building, is being cut.
Plans Drawn for New Hotel.
A drawing of the proposed new El
Paso hotel is on display in the Blumen
thal Bros, window on San Antonio
street. It was drawn by Krause &
Beeser and will be submitted as one of
the designs for the new hotel.
The rathskeller and restaurant in the
basement of the Roberts-Banner build
ing will be opened next -week with the
Scottish Rite and Shriner banquet.
The eighth floor of the Anson Mills
building was poured Friday night by
The Kress building is being repainted.
El Paso's buildings are not only ar
chitecturally beautiful, imt from an in
terior artistic point of view they are
the equal of anything to be seen in the
eastern cities. The high standard of
art is to be maintained in those that
are being completed, including the
American National bank building, the
Anson Mills building, the new Sheldon,
the Calisher department store and the
new postoffice. All are to be deco
rated in the same good taste which has
been used in the decoration of the.
buildings already completed.
George Hodel, secretary of the firm
of Mitchell & Halbach company of Chi
cago, is here to design the decorations i
for the new Sheldon hotel and the
American Bank building. The big sky
scraper bank structure is to be finish
ed in i'ory and gold tints, the gold leaf
effect being carried out in the panel
and ornamental designs. -The scheme
for the Sheldon has not yet been com
pleted, but the lobby and parlors are
to be done in rich colors. The same
firm that will decorate these buildings
had charge of the interior adornment
of the Toltec club, the Country club, the
Rio Grande Bank building and the
Gadsden hotel in Douglas.

FALL BUILDING- 0
OTHER SIDE ACTIVE
Many Home Buyers Are In
cluded in the List of New
comers to Pass City.
AN AUTUMN FEATUEE
Fall building activities have begun
over the river in Ciudad Juarez.
Largest of the proposed structures are
the new sausage factory plant south of
the city, and a 40-room hotel, to be lo
cated near the race track.
Lack of nearby lodging room will
lead to the erection of a rooming
and boarding house near the Jocky
club grounds. American money -will
build the structure. It will be of 40
rooms, two stories high, and of the or
dinary adobe construction. The facto
ry foundations are being laid.
Another of the week's developments
is the purchase of land on Lerdo ave
nue by F. Mateus, mayor of Casas
Grandes. Mayor Mateus -will build a
home in the border city, and his family
will reside there for a few months of
the year so that his children may at
tend school in El Paso.
Improvements on the George Sauer
properties on Calle Comercio, made
necessary by fire and wrecking, still
are being postponed. " Mr. Sauer has
announced himself as favoring the one

BRISK DEMAND FOR
UPPER VALLEY LAND
But one big sale was made In the
lower valley. This was the one in
which Felix Martinez and Silberberg

deal in itself, for the money consider

which had been closed during the
month. But Me, Hoenes is a practical
irrigationist. To prove this he is not
going to sit down and wait for the wa
ter to come down the ditches when the
big dam is completed. Instead, he is
arranging to instal a pumping plant

been the case in the "past.

Seattle, "Wash., Oct. 22. Seattle is in
a terrible mess. Seattle wanted a
"wide open town" and got it, and now
i Seattle wants a closed town and may
not get it. Seattle is -worked up to a
frenzy over it and there is no telling
what is going to happen. Just now a
petition is going the round for the re
call of mayor Hiram C. Gill, who gave
them just the sort of a government
they asked for and is now getting the
hook from the very men who put him
in office to give it to them.
It all happened because the business
men of Seattle thought they wanted a
lawless town, when they didn't. They
used to have a lawless town. Every-
tning -was wide open. Gambling was!
rampant and virtue -was at a premium
when Seattle was a little place where
shipping steamers from the oriejpt
stopped, adn started, and when gold
was found in Alaska, Seattle became
the jnecca for the men who acquired
wealth in the frozen north. Seattle
grew like a mushroom and was soon a
city, a big city, and it got too big to
stand for the vice that had in its early
days helped to make it grow. " They
shut up .gambling, put the lid on the
saloons and made the scarlet women
take to -the back streets, or at least
the back rooms In the hotels.
The Rush Slows Dovrn.
By this time, However, the wild rush
from the Klondike had settled down
and the money spending delirium was
about over. Seattle felt it. There were
many who blamed Seattle's sudden
stagnation at least it seemed like
stagnation to merchants who had been
i used to selling -big bills of goods to
the gamblers who had fleeced the min
ers who had dug the wealth and
brought it south on the enforcement
of the law and there came a cry for a
wide open town again. They failed to
realize that Alaskan conditions had
changed. They blamed it all on "the
lid." Mayor Gill ran on a ticket which
promised them what they wanted. He
kept his promise after he was elected.
The man with the red nose and the red
vest voted alongside the man with the
silk hat and the kid gloves, all for
GilL Seattle united save for a few
upon a mayor who -would restore the
conditions of old and as they believed
turn back the big end of the cornuco
pia of plenty into their harbor. Sa
loons disregarded the closing regula
tions; private games and games not
private weie opened in back rooms of
the places where men leaned against
the mahogany with feet on the rails
and blew off the foam; women with
more clothes than virtue, and more
jewelry than good breeding, scattered
over the city again, and Seattle was
"wide open." .
But the gold did not flow back; the
gamblers did not buy the furlmed over
coats as of old; miners drunk with
sudden fortune did not buy out a cafe
for a night so that a company of wo
men could dance on the tables. The
old spirit of he earlier "wide open"
period was dead. It had gone never to
Home Folks Gambled.
The business men who voted for a
wide open town, found only that their
working men were spendingvtheir mon
ey on the fickle goddess of chance and
that grocery bills were unpaid and
families were left unshod and uncloth
ed. it was the same condition that
faced El Paso before the good people
arose in their might and demanded law
enforcement. The people of Seattle re
alized their mistake and they began to
seek a remedy. They saw that it was
not morality that had caused their ap
parent stagnation; they realized that
the boom days had passed and that a
"clean town" was best. The mayor they
had elected on a promise to open, the
town was told that it was a mistake
and that he must remedy the matter.
He did, partly, but now he is charged
with all manner of things and a peti
tion is in circulation to oust him from
office because he was elected on a plat
form that was a mistake and because
the men who elected him have discov
Want to Ount Their Mayor.
The saloon men, like El Paso reac
tionaries, still bawl out for the "wide
open town," but the business men re
alize that they want anything else but
a wide open town; that the games of
chance are not luring the reckless min
er any longer and that the only man's
money they are getting is the working
man's. The result: His family spends j
less than ever and the gambler and his
consort of the peroxide locks and
gaudy clothes have not enough profits
to make them the princely spenders
of the long ago, hence the general dis
satisfaction. Voters Discover 3Iistakc.
The recall petition explains the rea
son for the recall in the following
charges, and none of them charge any
thing that the majority of voters of
the city need not have expected when
they voted for a "wide open" town
they were just mistaken in what they
thought they wanted:

made an implement of agriculture in-J That's all right, so far as it goes, but
stead of war the future of the little

from St. Louis, Kansas City, Chicago
and from numerous smaller cities who
are interested financially in agriculture

Down the National railway .f Mxi-
co, 50 miles south of El Paso, in north
ern Chihuahua, an archbishop of the
Orthodox Catholic church is working
out a solution jf the "back to the soil"
problem which has been bothering
social workers for years.
At Candelaria, a way station on the
National lines, archbishop Joseph Rene
Yilatte, head of the orthodox, or old
Catholic church in' America, is estab
lishing a colony where the population
of the foreign quarters of the largo
cities of the United States and the im
migrants from foreign countries may
find a home, ten acres of land and a
chance to be something more than a
charwoman, a fruit peddler or a day
laborer. Through archbishop Vilatte
the orthodox church has purchased 50,
000 acres of land surrounding the Can
delaria settlement in northern Chihua
hua and there the archbishop has es
tablished a town, laid the cornerstone
for an orthodox clu'rch and established
a school for the colonists who are to
settle the land and cultivate the soil.
Makes Visit to Europe.
Father Vilatte sailed for Europe on
October 1 to arrange for the pilgrim
age of colonists from Europe for the
new Mexican settlement. Although he
is being backed in his venture by the
church of which he is at the head in
America, father Vilatte does not intend
to confine the colonization scheme to

vited the people of all cities and coun- j
tries to come and settle on the land.
Artesian wells have been sunk in dif
ferent parts of the district and each
rancher -will have a 10 acre tract upon
which he can raise his crops and also
an acre of ground in the town of Vi
latteville, where he will erect his
home and live as a part of the com
munity. Conceives Idea in Chicago.
Archbishop Vilatte conveived the
idea of establishing his "back to the
soil" colony while a social worker
among the foreign population of Chi
cago and at Green Bay, Wis., wherej
he "was a missionary for seven years.
Seeing the natives of France, his na
tive home, working at the most menial
tasks, when they had been accustomed
to cultivating the vineyards of the
French districts, father Vilatte started
on a search for a tract of land where
these people and the members of other
foreign colonies similarly located, could
be taken and where they could till the
soil and earn their living under better
conditions than those of the city tene
The tract of 50,000 acres was pur
chased by the archbishop after he had
visited a number of places in the west
and southwest. Because its climate
was similar to that of the warmer
countries of Europe and because of the
fertility of the soil, the land was pur
chased in northern Chihuahua and op
erations started in June. A well was
sunk, the ground cleared, and tempora
ry houses built. Having been granted
a leave of four months, father Vilatte
moved to the colony and was in charge
of the work of preparing for the set
tlement of the immigrants who are
expected to arrive from France, Italy
and other countries of Europe, and
also from Chicago, New York and oth
er large American cities. While he is
abroad father Vilatte will visit the pa
triarch of the orthodox-church at An
'tioch, where he will ex-plain the colo
nization plan to the head of the church
and will ask for his assistance in se
curing colonists for the tract.
Only Actual Settlers Can Buy.
The plan of colonization is not to be
a money making scheme, as the land is
to be sold in plots of 10 and 20 acres to
the settlers at cost and no one but ac
tual settlers can purchase it. While
an orthodox church is to be established
at Vilatteville, which is to be the cen
ter of the colony, religious and politi
cal toleration will be one of the cardi
nal principals of the colony, and any
one will be welcomed to the settlement,
the only restriction being that they
buy a tract of land and settle and that

Archbishop Vilatte, who is at the
head of the movement, is a native of

tives of these countries in America.

when the laborer generally an indian i
or a Jamaican thinks he has too much
to do, he quits. He can live without
work, and works merely to please his
foreman. The foreman who can get the
good will of the indian is the valuable
man. The superintendent of a coffee
plantation has been trj-ing to get 300
men to -work for the last two years. At
one time he had 130 and he is a man
the natives like, too.
Laborers "Want Homes.
The manager of a big banana plan
tation is having the same trouble. A
month or two is frequently spent get
ting half a hundred men together. In
dians stay close to their villages and
the hope of the planter is the building
of these conglomeration of huts. Give
the worker a bamboo covered shed in
which to live, build them a church of
the same material and secure for them
a preacher, even though their morals
seem lax, and the natives will probably
spend their lives on the plantation
-working when they feel so inclined.
Now and then they want to wander
away and get on the outside of all fhe

the only secret, if there be any secret,
of getting labor in Nicaragua.
