HAS BUILT BRIDGES
FOR TWENTY YEARS
Old Time El Paso Construe
tion Man Found Great j
Results in Plant Juice. I
John Burk, who has lived in El Paso
for twenty years, and is known all oyer
Texas as a builder of bridges, has been
connected with the bridge building De
partment of the Southern Pacific Rail
road for years.
Mr. Burk said: "For the last two
years I have lost a great deal of time
on account of my health. I have suf
fered for yearswwith stomach and kid
ney trouble, roT liver was sluggish and
I was constipated. I would bloat after
meals and what little I could eat did me
little eood. My kidneys were so bad I
had to get up almost every hour dur- j
Injj the night. I have taken I'lant juice
for ten days. I sleep well, my stomach
does not bloat any more and I can di
gest what I eat. Plant Juice is building
me up and I feel better than I have for
years. Any man who has to work for
a living will understand how I feel
after trying so many things that failed
to at least find one that does what is
claimed for it"
Plant Juice cures cases like this be
cause it is a solvent of uric acid. Uric
pofsons tear down nerve forces, sap
vitality and weaken the whole system.
Plant Juice represents the best com- i
binatlon known of the herbs of medic- ,
inal plants and is a specific for the r

reached bv the Mormon refugees who

advised all refugees not to go back, and
if they went to go as individuals if
their judgment warranted such a move.

' TO TEPIC AGAIN
Mazatlan, Sin., Mex, Oct. la. Lack
of funds hts caused suspension of con
struction on the federal building at
this place, and all the assurances of
a beginning on the harbor project have
resulted in nothing, so far.

The city council has approved an
ordinance for the establishment of an
office for the Pasteur treatment of pa
tients suspected of hydrophobia. The
streets are full of dogs and there are
many cases of both adults and children
being bitten. Heretofore It has beeai
the custom to send patients in whom
hydrophobia was feared to Guadalajara
for treatment, but the expense is so
great and these cases come so fre
quently that it was decided to under
take the treatment locally.
Smallpox is again appearing in the
city and in the outlying villages there
are many cases, in fact, from Navojoa.
in Sonora to Tepic there has been more
or less smallpox all the time and some
of the lllages have suffered terrible
losses this, j ear. The authorities en
deavor to have everybody vaccinated
under the law making vaccination com
pulsory, but the people in the back
parishes have such a prejudice fagainst
the treatment that they hide out from
the health department agents.
A section of artillery comprising
about 30 men has been placed in the
fort on the south point of the peninsula
4n which the city is built, commanding
the harbor, with two light mountain
cannon. Formerly three batteries were
maintained here, but a powder house
explosion destroyed one several years
ago and the other two were abandoned
after the fall of Diaz.
Rebels Loot at Will.
A small mining camp in the district
of Mazatlan was captured by rebels
last week and looted. After spending
the night in carousal the rebels moved
on without any opposition. Another
rebel band of about 40 men threatened
the citv of Rosarlo, 40 miles below
Mazatlan, where the great American
mines owned by Los Angeles people is
located. At the time Rosarlo was with
out troops, but the prefect mustered In
local patriots to patrol the streets and
guard the entrance to the city.
The rebels bad only been bluffing
and they withdrew farther into the
hills next day. There are only a few
small bands of rebels in this end of
the state, and if the government could
spare a few hundred soldiers to chase
them, they could all be run out or ex
terminated, but it seems that no troops
are available lor tne purpose, an u-a..- .

the military commander in the district
and the prefect deny any knowledge
of the order for the execution anil the
criminal court judge has gone to the
scene to investigate, the civil adminis
tration being in full say in the state
now and not even the military officers
have authority to execute prisoners.
The supposition is. of course, that an
order for the execution cane higher up,
although according to law neither the
governor nor the president could order
such an execution.
A small band of rebels attacked Con

met with such sharp resistance from
the neighbors that tbey retired, leaving

believed to be at liberty and Jil re

on the North Western train.
A message was received from him
Tuesdav morning at nine oclock from
San Pedro station, below Pearson, say
ing that he was all right and that
the rebels would release him for a
ransom of 2600 pesos. This message
was sent to the North "ft estern rail
road officials and transmitted to Mrs.
Cameron and Mr. Cameron's business
As soon as it was received the 2500
pesos asked for by the rebels was de
posited with the railroad company and
assistant to the vice president A. L.
Lathrop telegraphed to Pearson for the
money to be sent to San Pedro on a
special train and delivered to the reb
els in exchange for Cameron. The
train left Pearson at 11 oclock and it
is believed that the exchange was
made by noon and that Mr. Cameron
returned to Pearson on the train and
will come to El Paso on the first train
out of the country Wednesday even
ing. Salarar Hold Cameron.
Gen. Ynez Salaiar is said t. be in
command of the 16 rebels .vho are
holding Cameron. This information
was received over the railroad tele
graph. When the train was taken
and Cameron ordered from the train,
he was taken to the Cinco de Mayo
mine, weet of San Pedro, where he was
held until Monday, when he was he
turned to San Pedro and permitted to
send the railroad telegram whirh was
received by the North Western officials
Tuesday morning. In the meantime
the railroad company has. se-s; a rep
resentative to Pearson to treat with
Saiazar and make an effort to obtain
his release. Superintendent GHmartin,
of the railroad, accompanied the spe
cial train to San Pedro which went
Monday, but was unable to Main
Mntc Department lets.
When it -was learned that 'i Cam
i ;on .isa prisoner. Mr-- Cain on, who
lives in Highland Park, ui -Ji:sjed
through J- V Sweenty, Mr Cameron's
attorney, for telegrams to be sent to
the president, the staU- department,
the American embassy in Mexico City
and the American consul in Juarez. Re
plies were received from A. A Adee,
third assistant secretary of state, saj
ing that the request of Mrs. Cameron
for the release of her husband had
uoen received and that a demand had
been made upon the Mexican govern
ment through the American emba3sy
in Mexico City. .V message was re
ceived from the American embassy
saying that the most urgent represen
tations had been made tor the protec
tion of Cameron to the Mexican gov-eri-m'
A number of private messages were
sent from El Paso Monday night to
the president and American state de
partment from business men and per
sonal friends of Caireron, urging his
immediate release. The war depart
ment was notified through the com-
I manding officer at Fort Bliss and ac
I lion by lhat department urged to s.e-
cure tne -American iewc. ... ..
dition to these messages, the revolu
tionary sympathizers in El Paso pre
pned an appeal to Salazar to liberate
Mr. Cameron, ssing that it would be
for the best interest of the revolution
and that the revolution could not af
ford to sanction such actions. This
message was sent by a courier who
left on the regular train Tuesday morn
ing and will ueliver the message from
the i evolutionary colony in El Paso to
Otn. Salazaivin person.
Both attorney Sweeney ani Mrs.
Cameron deny that Mr. Cameron ever
had any business transactions v-ith
Salazar at any time in his life, rnd
deny that the seiEure of the cattle
man was the result of a disagreement
between him and the rebel leAdt-r over
th-.' payment for a shipment of cattle.
Sas Money AVni Paid.
Because Gen. Ynez Salazar does not
know that the money he claims has
a .read v been paid to his agents he
is holding J. T. Cameron for a ran
som, was the declaration or MaJ. J.
Ceniceros. at present stationed with
the federal troops at Juarez.
"Gen. Salazar." declared Maj. Ceni
ceros. Tuesda, "some time in July
delivered to Mr. Cameron 700 head of
cattle with the instructions that when
the cattle were sold he was to pay to
me the sum of 15,000. Ilw monev
was for the payment of the m.n-ch.in-d:se
taken by Gen Salazar at Cks-ss
Grandes some time ago. Garcia Cuadra
and R. G. Robelo. connected with the
evolution, told Mr. Cameron net to
deliver the money to me. 'ui.dra
claimed at the time that he was a gen
eral secretary to Gen. Salazar, and Ro
belo said that he was a rep esinta
tive of Orozco.
"About August E. I called on Mr.
'.imeron for the mne and he told

knew that this meney had been paid
they would release Mr Cameron."
