COUNTY PAYS $12 ' -AN
HOUR TO JURIES
Purchase of Law Library
"Would Save Much Money
in Time Now Lost.
That the law library proposed for
the county courthouse is a necessity is
the general verdict of the members of
"Such a library will save the county
many dollars and will save litigants
much time," declared one of the lead
ing members of the bar today. The li
brary which it is proposed to buy will
cost less than $1500 ;and then it will
take about $100 a year to add the new
reports. It will cost about $25 a month
to keep it up. This will be the sole
"In time and money it will be a
great saving. We have two juries con
stantly on duty at the courthouse, at
a cost of $48 to $96 a day. They work
on an average of eight hours a day, r
1 6 to $12 an hour. Every timea lawyer
aas to stop a case to send to his office
for a book, It costs the county $L50 to
$3, for the book cannot be procured In
less than half an hour, generally;
sometimes longer, and each jury costs
$3 to $6 an hour. Thus Is shown what a
saving can be made by the purchase of
a library. Only the standard books and
reports are necessary, such books :xs
anv lawyer has. so that the county li-
I brary will not in any way relieve law
! yers from having to buy their own
books; it will merely be a saving" of
time to lawyers and litigants and
money to the county.
"Even the little county seats in Ari
zona have such libraries and there they
have to have a much larger number of
standard books, for their civil law la
almost a copy of the Texas civil law
and their criminal code is a duplicate
of the California criminal code, hence
they have to have the Texas and Cali
fornia reports in addition to the Ari
zona reports, the supreme court re

the Digests. We will only have to have
the Texas and supreme court "reports,

ger. The El Paso Hotel company is to be
organized "for -the purpose of buying
the site, erecting a first class, modern
hotel on the northwest corner of El
Paso and Overland streets, and furnish
ing and operating the same."
It is the intention of this company to
dispose of preferred stock, which is
to bear interest at the rate of 7 per
cent per annum, payable semi-annually,
and common stock and bonds. The
bonds will bear interest at the rate of
6 percent and will be secured by a first
mortgage on the land and building
owned by the hotel company, a deed of
trust to be held by the Rio Grande Val
ley Bank and Trust company to se
cure payment of principal and interest.
Description of Hotel.
The designing and planning of the
El Paso hotel incorporates the best
ideas of modern hotel service, inspired
by exhaustive study of he great cara
vansaries in every important metrop
olis. The building is to be first class in
every particular, from the foundation
to the last bit of decoration.
The facade, which has the advantage
of three street fronts, is to be seven
stories and mezzanine in height, Ital
ian Rennaissance in design.
The top will be surrounded by an im
posing loggia, enclosing the roof gar
den, which is to be one of the many
attractive features of this hotel.
Every room in the hotel is an outside
room, and has connected with it eith
er a bathroom, shower room or wash
room, so that guests are insured first
To Have Roof Garden.
The roof garden is to combine the
principal features of eastern roof gar
dens. It can be used as an open-air
restaurant and cafe, or for vaudeville
or other entertainments, for which
purpose an elevated stage is to be pro
vided. On entering the hotel one will pass
through a vestibule, both sides of
which will be given to concessions,
such as cigars, new stands, curios, tel
egraph and telephone booth.
From this vestibule the guest passes
into an imposing lounging room in the
center of the building, 24 feet in height,
lighted by an ornamented glass ceil
ing. From this Immense central room
radiate all the main working parts of
the hotel, such as office, dining room,
kitchen, cafe and "grill, bar, elevators,
etc., all Ideally arranged.
The bar and cafe will be arranged
and conducted more like a lounging
room of a club, so that a guest will feel
perfectly at home in transacting busi
ness in them.
The El Paso street front of the
ground floor will be reserved for
stores; the remainder of the ground
floor will be used by the hotel and will
be artistically finished, using such ma
terials as marble, Caen stone, ornamen
tal Iron and plaster.
3Iany ZVovel Ideas.
The mezzanine flpor will have a bal
cony overlooking the lounging room
and such minor rooms as women's re
ception room, waiting room and chil
dren's dining room. On this floor will
also be located drummers' large sam
ple rooms, with baths attached, so that
a traveling salesman will be able to
use one room for two purposes, sleeping
In the basement will be located a
billiard room and barber shop, also sti'h
rooms as servants' dining room and
locker room, baggage room, receiving
and storage department, engine and
boiler room, which will contain a re
frigeration plant for cooling ice boxes
and making ice; also a blower and ex
haust vacuum cleaning plant and a
system of ventilation which will change
the air in the principal rooms on first
and mezzanine floor every ten minutes.
A conservative estimate of the Earn
ings and expenses of the El Paso Hotel
company has been prepared. This fol

The most conservative estimates
show that a building of the type of the
El Paso hotel can not depreciate over
5 percent ih fron 10 to 15 years, the
As the assessed value of real estate
in El Paso has increased five times in
the last 10 years and is certain to expe
rience a rapid and big increase in the
coming years, the result, they say, will
be that the small amount of deprecia
tion in the building will not only bo
erty will increase many thousands of
dollars every year, which increase will
result to the financial advantage of
the stock and bond holders.
In the above estimate the revenue
from the operation of the big public
restaurant in the hotel has not been in
cluded. This should also 'add consider
ably' to the income. ,

To Be Fireproof.
Its fireproof features will give it an
immense advantage over every hotel
now in El Paso, while its size and
grandeur will protect it from compe
tition by like enterprises for a long
time to come.
El Paso has a real demand for a big,
strictly modern, first class hotel, and
the men who first place their money
into such an enterprise" will no doubt
reap a rich reward from the outset,
which will increase as. years go by.
A hotel as that planned by the" El
Paso Hotel company is certain to prove
a financial success. The demand is
there. All that is necessary is to
supply that demand, it appears.
Bliss & Faville, architects, and
Heller & Wilson, architectural engi
neers of San Francisco, are associated
in designing and erection of the El
Paso hotel building.
Well Knovra Architects.
Bliss & Favlle are undoubtedly
among the foremost architects in this
country. Such structures as the St.
Francis Hotel of San Francisco, now
containing 610 rooms, with a contem
plated 21-story annex, which will make
it the largest hotel irr the vorld; the
million-dollar Bank of California; and
the new Masonic temple of San Fran
cisco are a few of their many suc
cesses. This firm has given hotel con
struction its special attention and its
name on the plans for the El Paso
hotel is a guarantee of a first-class,
strictly modern hotel.
Heller & "Wilson, as architectural en
gineers, have been identified with the
design and erection of the engineering
features of many large office and
hotel buildings in New York city and
San Francisco, and they are considered
the most efficient architectural engi
neers on the Pacific coast.
Clarke & O'Brien of San Francisco,
have for several years made a spe
cialty of building investments and have
placed mortgage loans and bond is
sues on buildings involving millions of
dollars, so that their association with
the financial end of the "El Paso Hotel
company," together with the cooper
ation of the architects and engineers,
ought to mean for El Paso a hotel
that will be financially and archi
tecturally an undoubted success.

BISHOP MAY BE
El Paso May Be Headquar
ters for Protestant Epis
copal Missionary Head.
Bishop J. M. Kendrick may make his
home in El Paso in future and make
the El Paso Protestant Episcopal
church his cathedral.
Tills is possible according to Rev.
Henry Easter,, rector of the Church of
Clement, who has just returned
from the general convention of the
Episcopal church, which held a 16 days
session in the city of Cincinnati, one
of the most interesting in recent years.
The convention of 1910, he says, was
marked by conservative rather than
constructive action. In other wdrds
the things which it refused to do were
more numerous than those to w'hich it
gave assent. Among items of particular-
interest to this section was the
new district of
which lias hitherto been under one
bishop. The Rev. Julius TV. Atwood,
of Phoenix, was elected as the naw
bishoo of Arizona. This necessitates
the removal of bishop Kendrick to
New Mexico, and- he will doubtless
make El Paso his see city. In this
event St. Clement's becomes his cathe
The next meeting is to be held in
Xew York City in 1913.
Speaking of. the convention -Dr. Eas
ter says? r "
"The convention, was housed in Music
hall, -a Splendid building 'capable of ac-
commodating hajf a dozen ordinary
conventions. Besides there was a sepa-
rate hall for the house of bishops, now
numbering 104 persons, a tremendous
dining room in which 800 people tould
be seated at one time, postoffice, an
Information bureau, a check and cloak
room, and committee rooms without ,
number. Above them were hall; for j
Sunday school exhibits and conventions,
while set apart for ,the exclusive use
of the Women's Auxiliary and kindred j
organizations was a building about
two-thirds the size of all the rest."
i "In the spacious tea room the women
of the various churches of the city
and vicinity took turns in serving re
freshments each afternoon, and here
were spent some of the pleasant hours J
of the session. I
"The Episcopal church has a repre- '
sentative form of government, the var
ious dioceses corresponding to states,
and the missionary districts to terri
tories. Beside its bishop each dio
cese is entitled to four clerical and
four lay deputies, the districts being
represented by one each of these or
ders, and being entitled to a voice but
no vote on any question calling for a J
division of the house. The house of
bishops corresponds to jthe national !
senate: clerical an'd lay deputies to I
the ihouse of representatives, and any j
legislation must meet with the ap- j
proval of both bodies. The laity again,
voting separately from the 'clergy, may j
block the action of the lower house.
and so make concurrence with the
upper Impossible. In no other religious
body have the laity anything like so
great a power."

After Spending Summer in
Jail, Wilson Claims
The extradition of George Wilson,
alleged to be Frank Thompson, wanted
in Reno, Nevada, on a charge of mur-
der committed two years ago, is a puz-
zle to the Juarez officials.
After waiting all summer in the
Juarez jail for extradition, Wilson has
presented proof of an alibi before the
district court of the Mexican city. Writ
ten evidence of two persons living in
San Francisco, Calif., was offered
by attorney Amador, but it is necessary
for the testimony to be made verbally.
So the papers of the case have been
forwarded through diplomatic channels
to the federal court of San Francisco
to be presented there by the Mexican
consul. The witnesses will be exam
ined by an American judge.
The question hangs on a matter of
identity, the prisoner claiming that he
