PUMP AND ALARM
Propositions to Be Received Im
mediately by the City
OFFICE ROOM FOR OFFICERS
Mayor Recommends Remodeling Inte
rior; of City Hall Also Suggest
Clerk Hire Fund.
Negotiations for a new pump at the
water works will be entered into at
once, being authorized at the meeting
of the city council last evening. The
committee was instructed to secure
propositions, following the report made
recommending the purchase of a pump.
Besides this the clerk was instructed
to secure the propositions that may be
made'for a fire alarm system. The ap
propriation was not made for this Im
provement this year when the ordin
ance was passed, but it is probable
that the cost may be met by an emer
gency enactment. The council means
to be unanimous in the opinion that
both of the improvements are needed
and probably both will be secured at
the earliest possible date.
For All Officer.
Mayor McCaskrin in a special mess
age last evening recommended that
the question of providing offices for all
of the officials of the city in the city
hall be referred to a committee. Aid.
Sexton ha"d a resolution all ready and
the matter was left in the hands of the
mayor and clerk to secure an estimate
on the cost. The suggestion of the
mayor is to have a place for each offi
cer and a time each day when he shall
be in his office in order that the public
may be better accomodated. He pro
posed that the council chamber be re
moved to the third floor and the second
tloor be fitted up for offices. This will
probably not be done very soon, as it
will involve the expenditure of quite a
sum of money that may not be avail
able if all of the other proKsed im
provements are carried out.
Money fur Clerk Hire.
The mayor also suggested that each
alderman be allowed $r0 a year for the
purpose of defraying expenses Inciden
tal to committee work, the same to be
in a fund for clerk hire. As the salary
appropriation has already been made
and figured closely it was deemed not
advisable to make any additions to it
at this time, as it will probably all be
drawn upon before the year is up.
Health of June.
Health Commissioner O. O. Craig,
Jr., made bis monthly report on the
conditions with reference to the health
of the community. While the records
of the past show June to be blessed
with good health usually, it has been
better than usual this year. There has
been almost no sickness of a contagi
ous character. There has . been but
one rase each of scarlet fever ami
diphtheria. There was one case of
suspected smallpox, but an investiga
Hon proved it to be something else.
The commissioner says that he is
devoting a great deal of time to the in
spection of dairies, and the report will
be made at a subsequent meeting. The
examinations of milk have shown a
marked improvement in all of the sam
ples collected. It was stated that not
withstanding the special sale of gar
bage cans, there are many who have
not complied with the ordinance and
the commissioner recommends that all
offenders be made to comply with the

GOES AFTER PROF. GLEASON
Sheriff of Knox County Attempts to
Secure Horse .Trainer.
Many people in Rork Island will re
call the wonderful exhibitions of a
Prof. Gleason, who visited this city a
couple of years ago and made vicious
and fractious horses perfectly docile
and tame under his wonderful system
in training the animals. It has been
known for some time at Galesburg,
where the professor appeared about
the same time as here, that several of
the horses trained by the professor be
came so attached to hlni that when he
left the city and county for other parts
the horses followed him and have since
been lost to their owners. The county
authorities have been keeping a sharp
lookout for the professor, and at last
licated him in New Orleans, whither
Sheriff Hurburgh went early last week
to bring the horse trainer back. Requl
sition pajers have been issued by Gov.
Deneen. but it is understood that the
law of Ixmisiana makes the honoring
of' requisition requests discretionary
with the governor of that state, and
Mr. Gleason is resisting the efforts of
Illinois authorities to return him to

Across the continent in a special
train, headed by the national band
of another republic, the El Paso Elks
"Quien Sabe" club, a marching or
ganization of 100 strong, every man a
member of the antlered herd, form
ing the most unique crowd that ever
attended a grand lodge meeting, will
go from El Paso. Tex., to Buffalo, N.
Y.. in the next few days. They leave
El Paso Thursday morning, July 6,
and will pass through Rock Island on
the morning of July 8. arriving at C
o'clock. They will remain 30 min
utes and will give a concert at the
depot with their noted band.
The trip will cost the club $20,000
and every cent has been raised
among the members, all of whom are
professional and business men of
El Paso and vicinity, many of them
being wealthy miners. The band Is
tendered complimentary to the or
ganization by Sir Don Miguel Ahu
mada, governor of the state of Jalis
co, the commander of this famous
musical organization of CI pieces.
He will send it to El Paso and from
there the Elks will take it to Buffalo
on their special.
This is the first time that a fra
ternal organization of this kind was
ever complimented in this manner
by a foreign government, and it will
be the largest company of men in
uniform ever sent such a great dis
tance to attend a national convention
of any sort.
The trip takes the members clear
across the continent, from El Paso
on the south, touching the borders
of Mexico, to Buffalo on the north,
resting almost on the boundary line
Trnlu Crew All Klka.
The trip will be unique in more
ways than one. Every member of
the special train will be an Elk and
on the front of the locomotive which
will haul the train will be a tremend
ous elk's head of incandescent elec
tric lights. At night it will be seen
for miles and during the day it will
divide attention with the unique ban
ners which will cover the rides of
the special cars.
At every stop the club will parade
if the. time limit permits, ami a short
concert will at least be given in all
large cities visited during the day.
In Kansas City, where the stop will
be for three hours, in Chicago, where
13 hours will lie spent, and in De
troit, where 15 hours. are to be spent,
there will be at least one or two con
certs and a street parade.
The uniforms of the marching club
are of black broadcloth, trousers and
bolero jacket, tight fitting and trim
med in Mexican coins. The hats will
be of sombrero type, with brims three
feet across and the crowns a foot
high. Purple sashes will be the
waist decoration, with silk shirts
black shoes and white gloves. Each
man will carry a carved coffee wood
Our of Thrm Saw l.nivaon.
On the sides of the special train
will be banners telling the people
about El Paso. Thirty-five Thousand
People and More Coming, Nine Rail
roads and More Building;" "EI Paso
the Greatest Mining Center of the
Southwest;" "El Paso, the Headquar
ters of W. C. Green, the Man Who
Saw Lawson;" "The City Where the
Sun Shines Every Iay and Every
House is a Brick House," are some
of the legends that will grace the
sides of the cars.
llulldluK Viae Home.
The marching club is under the
presidency of Edward Kneezell, ex
alted ruler and designer of the $50.
000 home which the EI Paso Elks are
now erecting, with Fred J. Feldman
as treasurer and general manager.
The club does not intend to make
any attempt to land the next national
convention, but the trip is simply for
what VA Paso can do. It will be the
longest trip for the largest number
of men ever made to a grand lodge
meeting and the first time a national
band of a foreign country ever made
such a trip into the United States.
