The city council that; has been to gether for the last twelve months met for the last time io regular session, and when adjournment was taken, it was until Saturday at 10 a. m., when the returns of the last election will ba can vassed. On next TJhursday evening the old and new councils naet to ex change courtesies; then the old council will become deceased, and the new council will arise from the ashes of the old, as it were, or words to tht effect. Aldermen Stewart and O'Keeffe were absent last night from the farewell meetiner. The olerk read "the minutes of the previous meeting" with a touch of the pathetic and a tender sadness highly suggestive of the line of thought passing slowly tnrough. the various vistas of his mind, and "as the last notes died away," he heaved a siarh that "'struck a chord of sympathy" ia the breasts of at least four of the alder men present. It was a funeral sort of a meeting anyway, and the tinge of crape that seemed to wreathe itself around and about the transactions of the en tire evening was only equalled in its uniqueness by the two impromptu horns into which Judge Cold well's chin HIS WWSKEfc whiskers were divided. It was real, real sad. AT- T.' .l, 1 . V. O : . nrmmit- tee rennrte.rt th renort of the chief of no hp for March.

Now Mr Kachler is one of the retiring alder men, and the mayor rather caught him by asking him if he thought he would be in the harness to report at the en- uing meeting of the board. However, be report was referred back, and the ext chairman of the police committee may have a chance to "'wrastle with the problem." Mr. Lioberts.ior tne street and grades committee recommended improvements on Mesa avenue, North El Paso and South El Paso streets, especially in the idewalk in front of Ligbtbody s store where seventeen people threaten to reak their necks seventeen times a ay. Itaferred to the committee on streets. Mr. Clifford for the committee on nance reported favorably on these bill: M.

A slight misunderstanding between the Gas company and the city with reference to interest on citv script was settled by agreement that interest hould stop at the date the warrants 'ere called in. Mr. Clifford for the taxation com mittee reported that in March the city collection of city taxes had amounted to J3,04.40. The report was approv ed. Mr. Robert fcr the fire and water committee reported that the water company were ready to put in at once t he new hydrant that had been called for, Mr. Whitmore for the special com mittee on the proposed fireman's appro priation, reported adversely on the plan to have the city appropriate $1500 towards the entertainment of tbe tire- man's convention. He was convinced that such- appropriation would b legal, caome ot tne tax payers were against such action. Judge Coldwell dvised deferring action on the report he believed money could be leeally ap propriated to increase the efficacy of the hre Department. At tbe same time the speaker 6a'd that moneys for purely social purposes should be secured h rough subscriptions. Mr. Whitmore aid be would contribute from his own pocket, but be could not see his way lear to taking anything from the city funds, lie would give vzo himself The report of the committee was re' ceived and filed. At Judge Edwards' request the pa per witn tne names he nad secured was handed back to him as he wanted to tret some names. Judge Coldwell advised that be secure names of parties who would not siy one thing on paper nd an entirely different thing before tbe committee. The clerk reported that Mr. Slink- rd had paid the $2- for the use of the artesian well macninery Judge Coldwell then tubmitted this resolution and called Mr. Whitmore to take the chair Be it resolved by the board of alder men of the city of El Pa-o that the lderman ot the city ot JJ Paso with out distinction of party, recognize the mpartiality with which the lion. K. P. Campbell has presided over the r eliberatlons during his term of office as mayor and the efficient manner in which he has discharged tbe duties of is important office ana assure him that be carries with him on his retire ment their good wishes and the esteem f his fellow citizens, Judge Coldwell said that while he iffered with the retiring mayor in politics he desirea to express bis ap preciation ot tne ta r aaa impartial mannerin wnicli JlajorUampU'll hvl presided over the council during h'.s dministration, lie believed that the mayor like himself, had always been actuated by his convictions as to what was for the best interests of El Paso. Judge Cold well asked that his resolu tion be adopted by a unanimous vote Mr. Whitmore put th9 question and the resolution was adopted unanimous- ly. On returning to the chair, Mayor Campbell expressei his thanks for the courteous resolution and trood feel- nir from the council.

The Once Famous Beecher-Tiltou Scan dal is Again Before the Public in an Effort to Get Theodore Tilton to Rejoin His Wife in Their Old Age. New York, April 16. Friends of Theodore Tilton and his wife, who have been indulging in the-'hope that. with the passing of the Beecher family, a reconciliation might be effected be tween the couple that have so long been separated as a result of the devel opments in the s andal of which Henry Ward Beecher was the central figure, have about given up hope. It is understood that when Mrs. Beecher recently suffered a paralytic stroke, aud her life was believed to be in danger, strenuous efforts were made by some of Theodore Tilton 's closert friends to induce him to come here from Paris, where he has lived for years, and remain with his wife for the spin of life th ,t appears to ba left to her. Their efforts. were eut.reiy wituuuu a..x. yet it wouia appear mat J. utou uots I not harbor anv extreme bitterness t ward his helpmeet of bygone days, as . ... . , J. & , . he readily consented a few days ago to u:ux uis signature to some papers muL would enable her to dispose of proper ty standing in her name in Brooklyn. Without his cooperation, the transfer could not have ben effected, and the fact that he d'.d not manifest any irre conciliability in this particular lead, some people to believe that his heart i; softening toward the woman who, per haps, of all the innocent victims ef the Beecher scandal, most. has suffered the Three Cent Fares. Ivdianapolis, April 16 The con troversy over three cent fares is becom ing serious and several riots have taken place. Citizens are banding together to enforce the law requiring three cents fare instead of five cents. After a stormy scene this afternoon President Mason, of the street car company, agreed with the mayor to change instructions to conluctors and accept three cent fares until the courts shall settle the dispute. Further serious troubleiwas probably averted by this action. Americans Will be Protected. Washington, April 16. "Spiin must keep her hands off Americans" said Sesretary Sherman to a hirh government official, "I would empiov every guil) m.in ship and dollar in the reach of the government in defense of the meanest citizen. Spain and Cuba, however, must settle, their own affairs. I don't believe in bejoming Cuba's protestor, and should she become free I should not favor annexation, either of Cuba, Hawaii or Canada. Let us de velop what we have." AVill Scatter Literature. Washington, April 16. Republi can leaders assert today that the par ticular prominence given to tariff and bimetallism the two great issues of the campaign during the past week are especially gratifj ing.to the admin istration. Tne republican national committee will scatter broadcast next week tans of literature dilating U(iou the sincerity ot the professions of the republican party in hastening the ful fillment of their campaiga promises. Conflicting War ews LONDON, April Ki. News of the si tuation on the Greeee-Tu.-kish frontier is contradictory this morning.
