EL PASO STEAM LAUNDRY. V Land of the Noon Day Sun." City of Mexico, January 1 "Th land of the noon day sun" has been misnomer as applied to this city during the past fall and up to tne present time this winter. In fact the face of the sun has been shaded most of the time; the oldest inhabitant makes the usual claim that he never saw the like before The rainy season lasted longer than usual and then the cold Btarted in early, making it very disagreeable. There has been no great amount of sickness, but the poor people have suffered intensely. The people of this city talk of the glorious climate and the Americans here write to their friends in the states about coming to this point to avoid the rigorous.winters but the fact is that the climate is not near so good as that at El Paso, and more especially Is this so iD regard to peoale euffering from pulmonary affections. This climate is entirely too daruD for comfort and the houses are built so that they are always cold When the sun does shine then it is pleasant, but the meteorloeical reports of thi9 city and El Paso will show that the latter nas twice as many clear days as the former. There are many that will dispute this assertion but if they will take the pains to look up the facts they will find the truth of the asser tion. There are many other cities in this republic tbat have much better climates than this citv. Guaaaiaiara ana Orizaba both have excellent climates, but it is doubtful whether either of these cities have as good climate for those suffering from lung troubles as El Paso. As this is a subject that is liable to get me into an argument shall have to auit it, but still assert that that "land of sunshine" is a mis nomer for the City of Mexico. TIDE OF IMMIGRATION. Many people are coming from the tates to this country just now looking for investments for the idle capital that they have had tied up in their old socks for the past four years. They all want to go into the collee, orange, to bacco or fruit planting. Some of them will succeed but more will fail. The failure will not be because the country is not adapted to those products, but because tbey do not understand the ways of the people they will have to andle, tee iiioae 01 procedure iur mo ultivation of these plants, while oth ers will get tired of waiting so long as will be necessary to wait before tbey get any returns from their in vestments and will leave the country n disgust and will then give it a bad ame. There are two ways for Amer icans to euccessfuliy go into the above mentioned business in this country so that they can get a good profit out of it nd that is to either lorm a colony ana go into it that way or form a syndicate nd pav some man woo unaersianas he natives and knows how to work them. Of the two ways tne latter is far the most profitable and will always be the most successful way for Amer icans to go into the cultivation 01 coffee, oranges, tobacco, or any of the other big crops from which big profits are made. THE AMERICANS AND SPANIARDS. The relations between the Americans and Spaniards in this city during the past month has been very strained, dui far there has been no open rupture, although there is likely to be at any time. The Spaniards are very Insult- ng when they catch an American off by himself and there are three or four of them present. They make remarks that will some day cause a serious conflict and as both nationalities cling lose together in the habitual haunts bout the city, when the fight does take place it is likely to be a daisy and there are likely to be many broken heads and bruised contenances, and I would not be surprised if the fatal results would not be more than those that the Spanish report in their now famous bulletins about their routes of the rebels in Cuba. The Mexicans are on the side of the Americans and it is n every aay occurrence to near ui a clash between a Mexican and a Span iard over the Cuban question. If any thing happens I will let you hear from me. MONEY SPENT ON FEASTS. Of course it is none of my business to meddle in Mexican municipal affairs, ut I must stop to remark that there is an enormous amount of money spent in this city annually by the city adminis- ratlon on feasts and Irolics. II a city council in the states were to spend the peoples money with such a lavish hand for entertainment they would be taken out and lynched. Nearly every month as from one to two least aays ana each feast costs the city council from 1000 to $.'.000. How would it hit the people of El Paso if their board of sol- ons would appropriate that much mon- even for the entertainment ol tne Texas State Firemen who will be there May? Oh, wouldn't they roar. It would even make Judge Coldwell lose is even temper .and amiable dis position. Tne taxes nere are aireaay neay and if they should adopt any more pub lic holidays I do not Know wnat wouia beoome of the taxpayer. PULQUE AND PULQUE DRINKERS. Pulque is the beverage of the Mexi can and without it I do not see how the poorer class could live it is the main ngredient of their subsistence, it is true that the pulque joints could be etter regulated so that they would smell a little better to passers by on the streets, but that the drink holds life together with some of the tipplers there is no doubt and that it kills oth- rs there is less doubt. The poorer class can live on a cents worth of meat, cents worth of tortillas and a cents worth of pulque all day, but if they ave anv moi.ey left it f.oes for pulque It is not only the poorer class that rink pulque but all classes of natives and many of the Americans that come to this country, but I mu-,t say that the better class of Mexicans do not drink pulque in the uivcs but have it sent to their houses in clean bottles and are very careful to buv it from dealers only who they know are clean. I am sorrv to say that Americans go into the dives and drink a gallon or so and have to be lead away beastly and 'stinking" this of courso applies to that class of Americans who in the states get drunk on the slightest pro vocation. Some of them live and bum around these joi -its nrd sleep ia the station houses at night. SIXTEEN NEW SCHOOL BUILDINGS. Plaus and specifications are now be- ioe made out and bids will soon be yen tor the minding oi sixtot C"i bniidiniiH in thifi'ity. Tli f these building will reach ed that each building will occupy a full block. The buildings will be built on modern plans, and will be furnished throue-hout "up to date," of course thev will not be like the El Paso schools, because every branch of edu cation is intended to be taught there even to mechanics, agriculture and the arts. In fact, one can enter the prim arv department and after a term of years leave one of the higher depart ments a proficient scholar and a master of the branch of trade or arts that he has studied. For locations to build these sixteen school buildings many houses will have to be torn down and the idea prevails that many of the churches about the city will give way to make place for these institutions of learning There are many churches that could be spared for that purpose to a great advantage to the children of this re public, and as the liberal party is growing stronger every year it is only a matter of time when the numerous church buildings will have to give way and make room for institutions ol learn ing. DOTS AND DASHES. Last week was given up to mirth, merry making and religious festivities, For nine days before Uhnstmas tne boards were held by the Posadas, a re ligious festival of this country in com memoration of the birth of Christ. The reform laws of this country pro hibit any religious exercises in the public highways hence they had to be conducted in private residences. Foot ball has been introduced in this republic. The Missouri Tigers from the University of Missouri and the University of Texas teams were here during the ween to introduce the new sport to this republic. They were well received and the president sent a note to the managers of the clubs bidding them welcome. This has become a great resort or newly wedded people and there are many of El Paso's young married peo ple who will always remember the first days of their young married life being spent in this capital. PERSONALS. Judge Crosby, his wife ar.d daughter, Miss Katie, spent-several weeks in this city during the early part of the month and seemed to eD joy themselves to the fullest extent. Dr. W. M. Yandell. accompanied by his sister and nephew, were here dur- og the month to seethe city and visit ed Orizaba before returning north. Doc" had many friends here who were glad to see him. Many come and many go but of these will tell in another letter to the HaK- ALD at some other time. Geronimo. WANT THE BARS KEPT DOWN.

Several stockmen residing here and in Deming met the other day in the federal building, and drew up a paper of statistics on the importations of Mexican cattle for the intellectual digestion of the committee on ways and means of the house of representatives ia congress assembled. In the document it is stated: "In the first place, the imports of cattle from Mexico are inconsiderable. They have been greatly exaggerated by parties interested in their exagge ration, and from the accompanying data you will see tbat, as com pared with the daily sales of live stock in the markets of Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City and Omaha, they are a bagatelle. Tbey could certainly have no influence whatever upon the price of cattle in the United States. "The data herewith has been obtain, ed from the records of the custom house on the border through which these imports were made. The producers of these cattle are mainly American ranchman in northern Mexico, who through force of circumstances, drouth in Texas and other causes, have moved their herds into Mexico, and established there abiding grounds for supplying the American markets with yearling steers. The greatest sufferers from an increased duty upon these cattle will be these American cattlemen, whose homes are mainly in the United States where the products of their ranches are expended, and where any benefit or detriment in the upsetting of their trade relations will be mainly felt. 4 A material increase in the present duty on these cattle will not only shut out entirely their imports from Mexico, working haidsbip on these men, but will as well deprive the government of what is now a fair source of revenue. Under the McKinley tariff of $10 per head not 200 cattle were imported from Mexico. This duty of $10 per head on grown cattle and $2 per head on calves was absolutely prohibitory, the cattle raised in Mexico being worth in the American markets today about $14 for a 4-year-old steer. Not over 10 per cent of the cattle imported from Mexico have gone direct to tne American market. The imports have been mainly for the purpose of stocking Texas, Kansas and Nebraska ranches with yearlings or stock cattle, whica are subsequently movea north to Nebraska or Montana, matured after two years and sold in Kansas City, Omaha or Chicago as northern beef. A yearling which is worth $6 in Mexico after handling in this way brings about $;i0 in the Kansas City market. The additional $24 per head goes all to the American government as duty, to the American ranchman, railroad man, commission man and banker who have handled him for the market. "There is but one Mexican market for cattle, viz: the City of Mexico. The great competitor in the City of Mexico against Mexican beef is the Kansas hog. The closing of the Amer ican market to the Mexican cattle must bo followed shortly by the closing of the Mexican market to Kansas pork. Breweries are being established all over Mexico, and it will not need much encouragement to have packing houses in connection with them " The document sets forth the climatic advantages of wintering in Mexico and spring range feeding in this country, and the fact that every avenue is closed in the United States to the import of material from Mexico builds up one more industry in Mexico in competition with the like industry in the United States. However, other cittie men in this city do not seem to lay much stress on the above movement, and say northern Mexico is pretty we'll rid of cattle, and as any increase of tariff would not make ' S the whole duty over 'Xr pox- cent, it wi not make so much difference after ai l nere is reaiy no occasion lor segregation of umlerwear ovec This does not include case repairs; I also except Howard and fine Swiss watches from tha above price, but I make the charge proportion ately as low.

H- RICHARDS, VVtelxes &o ZDianaoxicls, -77j SHEELTDOIST BLOCK, THE CITY COUNCIL. Has More t j Say in the Collection of Dtliuqueut Taxe. Thursday night's meeting of the city council was another one of what the French would call "conversatziones," on the delinquent tax collection ques tion. Mr. Stewart was absent 'tending stock up the country, Mr. Roberts was at home taking care of the children so that his wife could have an evening off, and Judge Townsend was more absent than present. -- Mayor Campbell called Mr. Kachler to the executive throne while he took the floor to take em phalu exc-ptioj to the charge of Judge Coldwell that tne present council was incompetent. His honor claimed tbat the council had exhausted every means to collect the taxes; also that it had managea tne city's affairs more economically than any -previous council and had been diligent all 'round. Judge Coldwell replied that ne had never charged the council with gen eral incapacity, but he did claim that the council was not dealing fairly with propertT owners, and that too on the advice of the city attorney. Aside from following that advice, this council was the best the city ever had, both for what it, did and what it did not do. But that contract with Mr. Patterson was not only illegal, but was so laugh ably that the humor provoked by its ridiculousness choked the indignation occasioned by its extravagance. Many thousand dollars of back taxes belong to the school fund, levied for the bene fit of the school children. This money did not belong to the aldermen, it did not belong to the city, but it did belong to the public schools; and the council had no right to take the money and appropriate it to a lawyer. If the council can give a lawyer 10 per cent, it can give him 90. The same is true of all the various special taxes levied to create a sinking fund for various bonded indebtednesses. When the tax collector collects these taxes, it is hia duty under the law to turn them over to the city treasurer, and thecouncil has no power to prevent him from discharging this obligation. When the treasurer re ceives the money, it is his duty to at once credit i the moneys to the proper funds, and he is expressly forbidden by the charter from paying it out except to pay interest or to redeem the bonds. Did the council suppose the treasurer is going to violate his oath of office and put his bondmen in jeopardy in obe dience to an unlawful ordinance, and in violation of a positive statute? I lay stress , on this misappropriation of the special fund not because it is the only illegal part of the ordinance, but because it is tbat special defect in it that can be understood best by men not lawyers. Every citizer knows that a special fund provided for by the char ter can onlv be used for purposes for which it was levied. The last of tiiese remarks were in reply to a statement from the mayor that he did not propose to argue law points with the judge. The latter also read a statement of the uncollected taxes, as they occurred year by year as follows: 188r. $:i."5: 18m, $lf0: 18s7, $:7: lt8, $72; iss, sot; 18!;. $14"4; 1801, $.".270: 1802 $.":i.")7: lSy:i,$18,l27: 1804, $14,100: 1805. $15,755: total uncol lected taxes since 1S85, $'il,285. As to the query from Mr. Clifford as to why he had not collected up all the delin quent taxes while he was city attorney, J udge Cold well said there was no city attorney until 1SS0, but that there had been a lawyer hired to prosecute suits for the city in the courts, and he had nothing to do with collecting delin quent taxes. However the speaker did handle two such suits while he was act ing as corporation counsel, and the city was at no charges for the same. The city was going right back to where it wbs two years ago, ac.-ording to present in dications. Mr. Clifford asked if tha special attor ney could not be paid out of the general fund. This aroused the tires of sarcasm in thd orator of the evening who imme diately wanted to know if Mr. Clif ford had already begun trying to patch the thing, and after a few more pas sages at arms with the gentleman from the bloody Pirat ironically informed him that he had no more time or words to waste or, him The judge continuing, held that the council's action was mak i ug it the laughing stock of the L'.l Paso bar. The mayor then arose once more to stat: it a a fact tbat the present roun ic'lh.Mldone ail in its power to be diligent and collect the taxes. Assessor :lu has been excc'dinglv active in diwctiRrge f duty. 1 have rit-cl ,! T c.-vrsi-m! on and lu-t r.o , hiuI I think ill'? proper tiling is to he collection matter over to back taxes. It is an outrage to make three fifths of our citizens pay the tuxes of two fifths; and as for the city attor ney's handling the cases, he gets his $1500 a year whether he collects th taxes or not, while a lawyer who is make something out of it, will be red on to taking very active measures succeed, l intend to keep pe away at this thing. Judge Coldwell then read his ho a real iatneriy lecture about ixow -U . i a. u : j . - . uugui miei uis uuministrauon to official posterity with th tion of having been the be ever naa, dui wnicn coui, occur if such illegal acts as 1J tract was to be allowed through. The mayor now resumed his and Mr. Kachler presented the ber report of the chief of police proval. It was O. K'd. B. Major's bill for $63. 4, work during December wa The new officials of the ment were confirmed. J. P. Dieter handed in a tion stating that he would pay es ior ioyj, is-Ji ana lSVo, ll would omit that part of it water works bonds and interest. Ihe communication was laid on th table, and then the council adjourned TELEGRAPHIC SERVICE. The Herald has made arrangement) with the United Associated Press for telegraphic eervice which it thinks will give the people of El Paso the best and most satisfactory afternoon report of current events ever printed here. This report has been available for several months, but as considerable expense attaches to such an enterprise, and Mr. Hawkins' lease expired with the year, it was decided to await the present time to inaugurate the change. The service will commence Monday and arrangements will be completed to not only give El Paso the paper at an early hour, but to give Deming, Lords burg, Pecos, Eddy. Roswell and inter vening points as well as Chihuahua and several other places of importance on the Mexican Central railway the telegraphic news twenty-four hours ahead of any other paper. The man agement of the Herald expects that the increased expense will be more than repaid by an increase of patron age both advertising and subscription. Happy New Year.
