PL Thornton KELIABLE ARCHITECT -Rooml3 M orehouse Block, 1 Paso, Te Jadsre Maxey SustaiiH the State Rail road Commissioner's Reg: illations. Judge T. S. Maxey, of the United States pircuit court rendertd his de- ct on io the MoFadden compress case recently- The suit, which was for an injunction restraining- the commission and railroads from enforcing the com' pri ss regulations, was li ed several week, fliro in this city when U. S. court opened here, but was taken before th court aod argued at Dallas after ad journment of court in El Ptso. A syl labus of the pieaaing-s was printea in the Hekalu at the time. Tne full text of the Decision is as follows: Georte H. McFadden & Bro vs. the railroad commi.-s'oo of Texas et al, suit pending- in the United States circuit court, Austin division; beard on motion for preliminary injunction. The plaintiffs, ur der tne nrm nemi 01 George H, McF.addeo & Bro., bave tiled their bill of complaint ag-ainst the state railroad commission, the at'omey fcenr eral and seven railway companies tracs aeting business within this state. The nature of the case will sufficiently ap pear from the prayer for relief, which , s substantially as follows: 1. That all the defendants be en joined and restrained from continuing io effect, enforemjf, observing or ODey ing certain ru'e and repulsions pip mulgated by ihe rniirosd Cjmoii.-clon affecting the compression of coiton. 2. That injunction may Issue to re strain the railroad commi?siou, tho at torney general acd all other .ersons and corporations from instituting suits against the railwy oompani (j for the recovery of damages or penalties aris ing from the failure c-f the railway companies to obey tee rules and regu lations of the commission. 3. That the existing rules and regu lations as set out in the bill be cancel! ed and annulled, and that tne commis sion be restrained from promulgating in future siuii ar rules in any manner regulating or affectit g the compres sion of cotton. After due conridera'ion of the plead ings, the aHi Javits and other testimony aamitled Uj.oa the hearing, and the arguments of counsel, the court an nounced the follow. ng conclusions: 1. The coistitution and laws of thi state invesi the railroad a jmaiissiou with power to precoiioe t'-p rules and regulations in question. 2. Such ruled and regulations do ii-t iKpiiVe ice pictlffs oi tlmr pro perty without due process of law, loi uo they deny to the plaintiffs tne equal protection of the laws as guaranteed by the fourteenth amend ment of the national coistnutiou. 3. The rules anu regulations of the commission do nut prufess to regulate interstate shipments of cotton, nor, when properly construed, have they that effect. Any attempted regulation Dy the commission of such interstate shipments would contravene tne com merce clau-e of the constitution anu hence would be without validity. The present rules acd regulations apply only to state in coutraaistinction to iu- lorstate shipments of cotton ana they are therefore cot obnoxious to tne ob jection urged agaiDSt them. 4. While the constitutional rights oi the citizan should jealously guarded and securely protected against the as saults of hostile legislation, courts should also proceed with caution in restraining the properly constituted 8tte authorities from enforcing lawful rules and regulations which, while hav ing due regard for individual rights, are intended for the benefit and advan tage of the general public. It Is cot to be presumed that the rail road commission would engage in a de liberate attempt to destroy or cripple common ca-riers, or that it would for mulate rules either to barra?s the citi zen or to encourage and foster mono polies, and the party complaiDiog of its action or excess of power to justify the court in stiying its hand ana par aliz:ng its efforts by the summary pro cess of iniunition. The rourt is of the opinion that the plaintiffs have failed to establish such ' a cate and it is therefore ordered that th s prayer for injunction be and the same is denied I From the order denying an injunc j tion the plaintiffs pray an app- al to 'the circuit court of appeals for the first circuit, which s allowed, and the I bond for appeal is fixed at the sum of 8500. The clerk will duly enter this order of record at the Austin division of tho court, and he will also file with the pa pers of the cause the affidavits and other documents designated in tha memoranda of counsel for the repeative part es.

The Arizona Copper company is about to erect at C. if ton a library building Tor the use of its employes. Crittenden reports that a twenty-eight-day run of the Empire smelter resulted in 250 tons of bullion of lead, silver and gold of the value of about $200 per ton. The copper output of Arizona last year was 71,000,000 pounds, or 21,000, 000 pounds more than in 1895. Europe is using more of this metal than ever before. Copper is now king in the "sun-kissed territory." Los Angeles limes.

Several of the engineers on the western d. vision of the Sauta Fe have gotten over the $200 mark per month. Try Doughnuts at Smith's Creamery. The gross output from the Coeur d'A'enes this year will reach $15,000,' 000. One-third of this represents the amount expended for transportation and treatment; one-third went for labir. repairs, material and new machlnary, while the mine owners pocket the other third as profits. The Denver papers tell 'hat the re ceipts of ore and bullion principally gold, of coursa at the branch mint in that city were nearly 200 per cent great er in October. 1897, thtn they were in the same m nth in lS9ii. For the ten months ending with October the re ceipts were 171 per cent in excess of the same time last year. Five huodrrd tons of soft porphyry ore from tho Fortuna mine, in Yavapai county, is being treated by the cyanide process. One hundred tons already treated showed that it carried S5 per ton in gold. The total cost of mining and treating the ore is $1 per ton. The big vein of decomposed porphyry is mined with a plow, where it breaks over at the top of the hill. Thre it is shoveled like a chute and slid down 20 feet to the cyanide plant at the foot of the hill The following fact in regard to the Congress mine are taken from the re port of Supt. W. F.Staunton, formerly of Tombstone: Four hundred and twenty-live men are employed: month ly pay roll $300,000. Tne daily output is 120 tons ore, averaging $20, and a shipment of twenty -five cars per month of high grade ore. The 40 stamp mill crushes the ore from three shafts No. 1, 1750 feet deep; No. 2, 1,400 feet, and No. 3, 1,100 feet. No. 1 is lighted by electricity. A new hoisting plant has ben ordered for No. 2, capable of go ing to a depth, of 5,000'feet, and in shaft No. 3 a similar hoist will be plac ed, capable of hoisting a loid of 20,000 pounds at the rate of 1,000 feet per minute, for 3,000 feet depth. At the cyanide mill 100 tons of tailings are bandied daily. The company intend to enlarge this branch of the business. THS VISITING OPERA GIRLS' POWER OF ATTRACTION IN KL PASO, To erect a city hal!

Office of Commercial Ajrent, ) El Paso, Texas, Sept.-25, 1897. f It has been decided by the Southern Pacific Morgan Line Sunset Route Management to withdraw steamers from the Algiers route and have them sail direct to and from New York and Galveston, during- the continuance of the quarantine restrictions at New Orleans and vicinity. All steamers leaving New York sub sequent to Sept. 17th, will land at Galveston. There will, therefore, be no detention to Sunset route seaboard business.. For the protection of the interests of our patrons, we would announce that restrictions have been promulgated prohibiting- the handling of freight or iginating io New Orleans, or passing through that point, either having des tination in the state of Texas, or des tined to points beyond; therefore, we would request that for the present no freight be routed through New Or leans. On freight originating in Chicago, Cleveland, Cincinnati and adjacent ter ritories, we would solicit routing through St. Louis, care Frisco Line, H. & T. C. and Southern Pacific; M. K. & T. , H. & T. C. and Southern Pacific: C. R. I. & P. , H. & T. C. and Southern. Pacific; or Burlington. M. K. & T., H. & T. C. and Souther Pacific. This does not in any way effect freight to and from seaboard via Mor gan L'ne steamers and Sunset route, as same does not pass through New Orleans. The post office department advise that all mail from New Orleans to Mo bile Soranton, Ocean Springs and other supposed infect districts is fumi gated and no danger fom that source is likely to arise.
