It is repot ted now in this city that Harris ol Kingston, N. M , stands the best saow ior tue collectorship of this port. Fred Farrell's name appears on the podue court docket today and he is charged with disturbing the peace by being out with a crowd lust night that are cuarged with putting sand in the sugar bowl in a chile joint on Overland street. As Fred is a utputy constaole it looks baa that he should bd a dis turber of the peace, but just ho bad ly the peaoe was disturbed will bj found out this evening at 5 o'clock in the pjiice court. Sevt n bloods got out on a high old jamboree last night, but this morning .ney are repentant and their neajo are wrapped in wet towels. They all KOt along very well together until near four o'clock this morning wLen they got into a chile joint on Overland street where they hau a little lun that caused them, alt to be arrested today. The lady who runs tha jo.nt went b fore Recorder Pattertou this morning and mode complaint that the seven "bloods" sat at her table, ate every thing that was brought them, filled the sugar howl up with sand and tooth picks and left the place without payiuir for what they got. Warrants were immediately issued for the parties and they were requested to appear at the police court this evening at 5 o'clock fco that their s.de of the case could be heard. Tens putting sand iu the sugar is a matter that ouiy the sugar trust should be allowed to do. At the Show. The Grau Opera company appeared last night in the grand opera ol Ma'-tna which was well received and loudly encored in several instances. Miss Mortimer sang the "Last Rtse of Sum mer" and was called back five times before the audience were satisfied with her rendition of this oid bat beau til ul song. Mr. Pache also maoe a hit and was cal. ed before the cuttiin before the auuience would quiet down. There were several mistakes made by the audience that created some dis order. In the ur;t place a majority of the audietife expected comic opera and th y waited in suspense for the com. cal tarts that they hau coma to see. An other m stake of the audience was in thinking the performance had closed at the end of the third act. Martha is a four act opera, but it was ntcessary to Jower the curtain in the first a t to change some of the scenery. This caused the mistake, people thinking that as the cur. ain had been let down four times the performance was over, and many started lo leave the bousse nut came pack when they louaq. out their mistake. Tonight the company will play "The Chimes of Normandy'1 and ti.ey are all weil up in this play and will give en- , tire satisfaction to a critical audience. !

El Paso, Texas THE CITY COUNCIL. Report From Ci'y Attori.ey Kemp on Street Kail way Franchises. It was a case of "low lights dimly burning," at last night's meeting of the city council. Tne meter was ou of whack aud would not it:t in the gas with any force, to the burners burned fitful at.d dim, as i; were, and the ses sion was oeid amid a funeral srloom. The city attorney aid Judge Caldwell were absent iu San Antonio. So At torney Coins read the city attorney's n port as follower la response to your etquiry as to the proper method of forieitiug franc uses and grants of right of way, especially to street rail way companies, I respe tfully submit. as my opinion, that it should be done in a suit in the district c ju.-t. wherein the alleged causes of forfeiture cn the part of the c.ty and the rijrl- ts and equities cf the other parties may be fully heard and determined. In the case of G C. railrjad compa ny vs. the G. C. Street Railway Co. lex. judge watts ol the com mission of appeais, held that the con sent of a city council for a street rail way compaiy to occupy the streets was a mere license, and that at least 'uutil the coinpaoy has availed itself of the license, i he city council may at any times withdraw its consent arid confer the privilege on another:" and 'to enable the council to withdraw its consent, and especially before any ac tion had been taken by the company, or -when after constructing the road it had been removed and the street aban dooed, it was not necessary that the council snouia procure a judicial decla ration of feuure but under such circumstances the council bad the power to withdraw its consent " In 65 lex. 602, however, the same case was before the supreme court, and Chief Justice Willis practically over-rul d judge watts, or at least left the purti cuiar part oi nis opinion quoted, in such doubt that I cannot regai d it as an authority on the point in Question. Tne courts of Texas, and especially in the later decisions, seem very jealous of the franchises granted urban railroads, and it is evidently tneir policy to guard them as lar as they cau reasonably, without interfer ing too much wiih the recognized powers and r'ghts of municipal authorities. From my understanding of the authorities, therefore, when the council deems it proper to forfeit or revoke franchises (such as rights of way over streets and allevs,) inttead of merely declaring a foifeiture of bv ord. nance, or repeal of ordinance granting such franchise, I would ad-vi-e that a judicial declaration of forfeiture be obtained in the district court. Among otherf, 84th Tex.. R P. 590, I consider an authority on this point. I doubt, however, whether the council will find it necessary to take any steps towards judicial forfeitures, at least for some lime to come, for the following reasons: 1 As far as I have beeo, n ma of tfcn franchises granted are exclusive; that is, they do tot entitle the grantees to any particular parts of streets or al leys, nor to the exclusive use of them . Hence, tbe city i-ouncil can grant rights of way over the same Ktreets and alleys to others, if it see fit to do so. And the company actually locating its road first would hold its line notwith standing a former franchise (Lot ex clusive, cor for a parti -ular pnrt of a street or alley) tony have been granted to some other company over the sa-ne streets ai d alleys; :j -Tex. 170; US Tex. 170; 63 Tex. 529. 2 If ther e are any railway corpora tions, or b ltor suburban comp inies hav ing charters grauted or ani.u l-d s:nce January 1, 1397,; which have failed to complete any extension or branch line within the time required by law, they may i btain a two years extension troin February 25, J897, by virtue of an act. of the last legislature, Geul. Sess. 13!t7, p. 8. I do rot kto that there are any in tais city comtDg; under that act, but in case there sUould be, I call attention to the statute. -Authorities that may bear muro or less on the- question pre senttd, and tho action of cities in for feiting franchises are as follows; Gal vt stou & W.

Mr. Scott would annul all franchises not now in actual operation. Air. Whitmore advised following the sug gestions of tin city attorney. Owing ;o Judge Kemp s aosjnce at oan iiiiio- nio, the mutter wai laia over wr uuo week. ' Chief of police Lockhart reportel that a colored woman had built her house at the corner of 5th and Florence streets that was partly in the street. The woman had been notified she was a trespasser on the public domain, but had not seen fit to move. The chief wanted to kco what to do. Ibe chiei was instructed to remove all obstruc tions io the street, and if necessary to use force in -do.ngr so under th3 oirec- tton of the city attorney and engineer. The city clerk reported issuing twenty-four buildings permits during Octob.r, the valuation of the lmDrove- ments amounting to $Jj,000. lspjrt received ana hieu. The O:tober report showing cclieet.ons of the rollecto amouating 10 to the taxation $1240 39 was referred 1 otnmittee. Mr. Whitmore reported two deeds relative to the transfer of alleys re cently asked for by the Campbell Rsal Estate company. "Referred to the city attorney, la the matter of the petition of the Jookey club for the lease of Washington park, Mr. Whitmore for the street and grades committee re ported that the committee were wilt ling the park should be leased to the gentleman cow asking for the park on the conditions proposed by them, v.z: t he same conditions as were re quired of a former association to which the park was 11 asea, wnicn proviueu that the oroovrtv be put iu first class shape, and to maintained, all build- ines. fences, track, etc , being kept m reDair. The lease is to be for live vers. and as the property is in a de plorable and neglected condition gust now. Mr. Whitmore thought the lm provements tnat would be made by the new lessees would double the value of the nroDertv bv the expiration of that time. Moreover, in addition to the provi sions of the former Uase the new as s-ciation was willing through Mr, tladlev to eive a bond of $1,000 that its part of the agreement would be ful- tilled. The matter was referrtd to the mavor and the finance committee with power to act the lea?e to the former or-L'aniza-ion. of which the late Mr. Grover was the leading spirit, was read as an indication of what ehould be ex pected. Mr. Clifford for the finance commit tee reuorted favorably on the street commissioner's bill for the week of $40.31. and $2.50 for the sewer com missioner, which were ordered paid. Mr. Brunn ;r rep irted two of the big duors of the fire department out of order. Referred to the building com mittee with power to act. The ladies of the El Faso public li brary presented a patition as follows: We are an organization, determined, earnest, with a lirm purpjse to cirry to a successful aad, we hope, a credit able conclusion, its object, i. e.: the establishment of a public library vh:ch shail be not only a credit to El Paso in i's outward and material sense, but, at the same time, of inestimable value to our people in a higher and belter eens.

The petition was ie-'eived and filed; but the council thought that giving the triansrular plaza across from tha court house was too much, asd con cluded that the Schutz triangle on San Francisco street, opposite the McGinty club would be better. The matter finally went over for mental reflection. The ciry clerk reported the recep tion of the cancelled water bonds, alo that several citizens, including ex Mayor Solomon would like nurabjrs of the bonds as souvenirs. However, the council seemed to think that the be3t thing to do with the bjnds would be to destroy them; then there would be no possible danger of getting into trouble on account of them. Dr. Race, the city physician cl09td the pro ceedings of the evening with a breezy little talk. He narrated how he was daily vUited by sick people from all Dirts of the country who deliberately came here without means to live, and had the assurance to ask the city of El Paso to care for them. If the af firmative was given to all such re quests, it would shortly be n? cessary to roof in the entire city and turn it into one b;g hospital. There were two charges at present on the city's bounty, viz., a bed ridden morphine fiend at the hospital, and a man out at the county infirmary recovering irom the bite of a rattlesnake. Tne old scissors grinder who had b.en laid up at the hospital with inflammatory rheumatism had just got out that day from the hospital. The doctor said that hereafter he would bs able to at tend more freqently the sessions of the counc 1. Adjourned. THE WHITE OAKS KOAD. Getting Ready for Builoiug This Im portant Feeder for M Paso. A reporter of the HERALD called at the White Oaks rai.road office this morning and foucd every body "up to their chin" in work. Everything showed business, bustie and signs that a great enterprise was maturing. Chief Engineer Campbell acd numerous cierks and draftsmen were around looking over the field notes of the surveying corps that is now in the held, but to a question as to what was the next move of the company, Mr. Campbell replied that there was noth ing new. He said the surveying corp on permanent locations were thirty -five miles out and were stiil working north. Mr. C. B. Eddy remarked that the great amount of work now being done in the office was routine work, prepara tory to the beginning of the road. He said the surveys snowed that for fortj twojmiles out f.om F. rt Bliss the road would have a straight line with a very high grade. Mr. Eddy sa d that a part of the steel contract had already been let, but that eo contracts fur grading had yet been let although many bias bad been filed with him for the work. He said the cooopany had not yet de cided whether the whole grading con tract would be 1st in a lump to one bidder, or whether sections would be let to different bidders, but that this matter would be settled in a few days and contracts would be let jaot as soon as possible, but he was unable to say iust when that would be. it is not yeo dehuiteiy settiea wneon- er or not any 01 tne oiu v mie uam track bevouu Fort Bliss would be used, but the impression was left that the old track would not be used. Ed Roberts reported to the chief of police this moining that a Mexican b.'V named Agustin Vaieucia had s'.ol- e'j tome mouty irom nis oou-e last night and he was anxious to have the fellow run in. Mr. lioOerts sa.d his wife had left some money lying on the p ano, and the Mexican who was work ing around the house, appropriated the money aud then mide a bee line to the other side of the river where ho blew it in against the circus.

During the past several years the Mexican orange growers have built up a profitable and large trade with the United States and Canada. The new tariff law ha cut off considerable trade with the United Spates, but trade has been grea'ly increased with Canada. This trade with Canada was for some time blocked by Collector Davis, of this customs port makinar a rule that "oranges wero perishable fruit, and therefore, ut.der the Dirgley law could not ba passed throuch a United States port without the payment of a duty." The matter was brought to the -attention of the treasury department. Assistant Secretary Howell ruled that, as lemons had been received as con perishable fruit, the same regulation should apply to oranges. Thus the ruling of Collector Davis is reversed and as this is now right in the middle of the Mexican orange ship ping season, it may be expected that many large shipments will pass through this port en route to Canada The oranee shippers now use special ly arranged cars with bins that hold so manv orances to the bin, and in thus shipping them the oranges are cirried through in fine condition without being mashed or sweated, ine shippers buy the o anges as they grow on the trees and after they are gathered Ihey are sorted and those that are cot fit for shipment a-e sold on the ground and sro to the different markets of Mexico where they are retailed. Most of the orances that come through this port are raised in the fctites of Vera Cruz and Jalisco. The most complete funeral parlor in Western Texas is at 401 El Faso St For courteous treatment and unequal- ed service, Hoss & Co., are the people. Fhone 211 or 183. The district court is listening today to the gas incendiary case of Meciano Fallen, the Mexican boy who is being accused of setting fires on the south side. . 1 KOl'OSAtS F - R FRESH BEKH1 AND 1 mutton.
