The Annual French Ball in New York Proved to be More of a Wake Than a Fes ivity, but a Fiuanciai Suc cess New York, Jan. 29. The French halt of wicked reputation, took place at Mitdison Square Garden lat night, or rather this morning, and hundreds wbo bopep to see it in its prestioe glories went away disappointed, xne Dig gard en was packed, but there were nine men to one woman and tbe proportion was chilling. Most men were in street clothes. A remarkable thing about tbe crowd was its frankness. The men and women did not put on masks. They paid their money and walked in and took eeats with calm deliberation, and waitt-d for things to happen. With stony stares they gazed upon ' the floor. Some stayed an hour, some -two bours and some longer. Most of them looked sad when tbey went away. Tbe women wbo were active participants did not come out of their clothes any more than the chorus girls in an hundred comic operas and they shocked nobody. There was not nearly as much display in the direction of legs as ia seen any night in the theatres. About 2 o'clock this morning, however,' there were signs that the crowd was coverirg its sorrow in drink. The wine rooms were the centers of attraction. On'y champagne was sold but the incessant popping of corks : was accompnnjd only by an occasional dull thud as some helpless individual fell to tbe floor. The ball was a financial success but it was a wake, not a - festivity and a very sodden wake at that. Gulf T ransportatiou. Winfield Kas., January 29. Tbe Gulf and Interstate transportation committee of the state legislature, of which Senator George Campbell is chairman, is in session today for tbe purpose of fixing the time ard place for a national convention to discuss the transportation question.

Senator Campbell also said that tbe governors of seventeen state, including all those between the Mis-i-sippi river and tbe Rocky mountains had agreed to send delegates t the gathering. Kansas City, St. Louis, Topeka, Wichita and Denver bad placed in nomination for tbe place of holding the convention. A receis of one hour was liken before anyplace had been decided upon.

Nolan as well known in Denver and Los Ad- I innni? t t if iottu I tf UASVTXLI X J- JUAU An. A Deserved Compliment to the New Judge of the Thirty eight District. The appointment of Gov. Culberson of Hon I. L. Martin to fill the vacancy in tbe Thirty-eight District judgshlp appears to have given almost univer sal satisfaction to the people of tbat district, as Judge Martin was rep resentative of El Paso wiih other counties in 1895 at tbe state' legisla ture. The folio ing from Judge Mar tin's home paper, tbe Uvalde News, will be read with interest by that gen tleman's many friends here: During the week the absorbing topic of conversation bas been the successor to tbe late Judge Archer. There were a large number of applicants, t among whom were I. L. Martin and J. N. Garner of Uvalde, V. H. Blocker and d. B. Easley of Hondo, W. W. Martin and R. H. Burney of Kerrville, Leslie Thompson of Castroville. Tbe claims , of the various cand dates were laid be fore the governor by their friends and in some cases tbe applicants also visit ed Austin. Tbe governor held tbe matter in abeyance until Tuesday, when he announced the appointment of i. L. Martin of this place. Mr. Martin ha? always been a democrat and his appointment will give satisfac tion to the democrats of tbe district as well as the people generally. "Mr. Martin was born in Seguin a5d reared in Pleasanton and San Antonio, where he resided until 1876, following the p- inter's trade, holding ca-es on the old San Antonio Herald; and at one time was connected with and own ed an interest in tbe San Antonio Daily Express. He went to Brackett, where be was appointed deputy cleric under his brother and in 1878 was elect ed district and connty clerk of Kinney county, being re-elected, in 1880. He declined to run at the succeeding elec tion, but in 1884 he was a candidate lor county judge against a popular man, but was elected by a Handsome majori ty. It was during his IncumtK ncy as county judge that he was admitted to the bar. In 1886 he was elected county attorney and re-elected in 1888, 1890 and 1892, and during this latter term be was appointed district attorney by Governor Hogg, but at first declined to serve. However, on the urgent request of the governor be accepted and his cocduct of tbe office gave great satis faction to tbe p ople Both as county abd district attorney he was known as a vigorous prosecutor, and the fear of ihosiwbo violat-d the law. His re cord of conv'ctions was equal to the best. Although being eog-igrd in pro secuting he built up a large civil p-ac-tice and was recognized among tbe best wbo practiced in this section of Texas. 'The people again honored him in 1894 by electing him to the legisla ture, in which he made a reputation by his persistent and consistent advo acy of a measure to change the election aws so as to better protect the ballot box. He was also fouDd working and voting for those measures wbich would he of banefit to his constituency and the state in general. "It may be truly said that Mr. Mar tin has conscientiously and faithfully discharged every public trust and in every instance wh- re be has gone be fore the people tbey have endorsed him. As a lawyr he is painstaking and studious, giving attention to every detail, and as a consequence we believe no lawyer in southern Texas has a better knowledge of the laws on the statute books, or their interpretation by tbe higher courts. As a county judge he was seldom reversed, and hia training since bas ben sucb as to oet- r equip him for judicial duties. He will bring to tbe offi e a wide exper ience, an excellent knowledge of the aw, and good common sense, those qualities so necessary for the proper discharge of tbe duties which will devolve upon him. Tbe governor has dene well in appointing him and the district is to be congratu'atid. " Cut in Two. Word came up tbis afternoon from the other site tha Brakemtn Jos pa Reginaur, of the Mexican Central, ' aged about zt, was run over and cut in two. According to wbat can be gleaned at a late hour, the unfortunate man fell off a freight in rounding a curve near Moctezuma, some 140 miles from Jua rez at 3:30 this morning, and was in stantly killed. When he was misled, the conductor ran the train back, bnt being unable to tell just where tbe poor fellow fell off. found the train running oer tne body ere tbe discov ery was made. - : The body was carefully picked np and taken to tbe nearest station, and will ba brought up tonight. . Reeinaur was a Cleveland, Ohio, boy, and came down into tbis country to find work in the hard times. He was laying up enough monee to get home on, and it was understood that be was engaged to an estima ble Ohio girl whom be would bave wedded in tbe course of the year. Joe was a gocd fellow ard temperate, and attentive to h s duties. Tbe body will be held at Juarez to await directions as to interment from relative. Wi-liam McCarty, of Ottuinwa, Ia., is just dead at the age of 104.
