To the Herald '-Jedge" Magoffin allowed himse f to be interviewed by 'li s motmnij-'i Times and I, a9 a demo crat of the 2nd ward, think God he found time to t-.ll the reporter of thai paper his pjlioy should he be elected mayor of El Paso. He says in this interview, ! believe the mayor and council acted w.st-ly in refusing to grant the rigat of way as aj)plied for by the Mexican railroad, HUT IF ANY OTHEii RIG TIT OK WAY IS APPLIED FOR OVKK THE STREETS OF the city, such mavers should be semeu wittitut Ul will ariOi our peo ple and the railroads over m--ittrs of mutual inte'est." Asa matter of fact the "j dg.j" knows the Mexii an railroad is not sai'sfiei with iis present fran chise nor is Mr. Morehead. who put up tne "ju"ge. tor Mr. Morehead made it his business to go to the council chamber to iolluen-'e the granting of the right of way as the Mexican rail road di sired is but failed to carry his point. The i-j dge" knows that it is to his interest to r ave the Mexican raii rojd eranted its original conoe.-sion asked io order that it may reach his reserve' wnich he expats to sell to the several railroads fordepot grounds If it is to his interest and the Mexican railroads to have the concession grant- d, that is of more weight with h m than is the interest of all the other peop e of ihe city. Should the 'jedge" succeed in this move it will result in he destruction of mora than one ha'f the property values in the seco id ward and even worse destruction wou d bo entailed upoa those who own property on Sau Antonio street aod Magoffin avenue, Sonlh Stanton, Utah and Ore eon streets, the future business streets of the city in years to come would be destroyed. Even Myrtle avenue mu-t -utter to a great ext-.nt. It has been tne dream of the ''jedge" for years to sell bis property, abutting on the streets above mentioned, for dapot grounds and he has held it iutact for that purpose and no other. Tne ''jedge'' speks rather compla cently ot a possibility of ca o lliug tne ater bonds. This bit of iuf-.rmation isofj-reat concern. Let the peooe remember that -'Jedge' Magoffin wi-h -ieveral others, put up the money wito the water company t light the bonds in the courts in or ler that the said water ompany might continue io rob 'he pe -p e and -sadd e a long contract, on tne citv at the o'd rates. Tbe peo pie have succeed d thus for in keeping bonds in a good healthy condit.on, of all the traitors, and also secureu a two year contract at la'r ra es but one of tl e-e yt arg has nearly expired and in aoot eryear we mu-t use the b miis as a leverage to make a long contract at the rates now prevail ing. Yes, "jeoge, " we need the bo'ds and the people of El Paso should see that j oa are defeated next Tues Hiy so that it wi 1 be certain that you will not betray them. The '-j dge" says again : "We should be careful nt to saddle a tax on the ommunity for a street improve- aton'y benefits one party or ar property." Tbe "i dge" is full of prunes. He knows well that the wi ole community" does not pay tne tax for th-se improvements. Only tnat property abutting on t"o stree s improved pay tbe expense. The "whole community" had to piv the cost of the-e improvements he would hive addled onto the "whole commun ty the cost of bu lding a s dewalk on San Antonio street and Magoffin aveuue on tne.froats of his "reserve" which now have no sidewalks. Goodhje "jedge." You will be a sad der but a wise mm next Tues'ay. Sax Antonio St. Oemocrat. encourage the building of railroads into El Paso, want and "demand" that their interests be protect -d. and are not satisfi-d with subterfuges and am biguous declarations Tbe people want t know where they stand, and what to expect. Power Kehind the Throne. (COMMUNICATED. ) Who wrote Magoffin's interview is the question now agitating the public mion? It seems however, that any one acquainted with the style of those who occas onally contribute to the El Paso newspapers will recognize in the inter view the "fine Italian hand" of Mr. C. II Morehead. It is equivocal, evasive, and calculat ed todeceive the unwary, and in this it bears ear marks which unm stakably indicate the origin. If the people of rjt i'a-o nave ao.v aouot as to fto wiu absolutely control tbe policy of the ad ministration, should Judge Magoffin be el-cted, such doubt should be dispelled when they learn the authorf-hip and observe the contents of this extraordin ary interview. The people of El Paso cannot afford to select any ottic'al whose election would make it possible for any party or parties, not in office and consequently not responsihle for official act'on, to dictate the policy of those in office.
