Many people who notd with sur prise tbat Kear-Aomirai aampson nau encountered a second "Morro" caati at San Juan, Fo-to Riio. bavc wondered at the reoet tion of the nam on an inland so near to Cuba and tbe famous "Morro" of Havana. But t'.t sooarent strsngeness of tbis cir- cums'anoe ditappp-ars when it is un derstood tbat morro" Is not a proper name at all, but merely a word to de- n te tori't tyoe of I truncation.

Some months ao-o the city's at torneys, Wyndnam Kemp and Millard Patterson, filed in tbe district court a suit under the title City of El Paso vs Mr. Frank Ruck man. J. ne suis was for the recovery of back taxes due the city, and while no considerable amount was involved ii this particular case it was brought to test tbe legality of tbe city's collections of tax arrearages. All the arrears lor tne years irom ioo-s to 1896, aggregating nearly 920,000, were involved in the outcome of this case. Toe city schools especially were nt-rested in tne result of tbe test. The suDreme court on May 30 ren dered its decision in favor of the city, ts follows: Tnis oase comes to us upon a certi ficate from the court of civil appeals for tbe fourth supreme judicial dis- rict. The statement and questions are s follows: "In April,1882,and in November, 1882. dleotio -s were held in tee city of El Paso in reference to tbe control of its uubllo schools, but io neither case was tbe election sudh as to legally cons i tute tbe oltv a school district. . The eitv. however, began to act as an In dependent school district io the spring of looZ and has ever since exercisea such control in the manner and under he circumstances hereinafter set forth. "It wss admitted that ever since the rear 1882. the ci y of El Paso hos been tcting as ao independent school dis trict, organized with a board of trus tees such as is nrovided in Chapter 67 of tbe Acts of 1879; tbat soon after aid election io November, 1882, to-wit, in December. 1882, an election wa eld at which a board of t'Uttees wa-t elected to take charge of, manage and control the public free schools of the cry of El Paso, ana ever eioce tne war 1882 all the Dub'io schools of the city have been in the bands of. and un ier tbe management and control o' uch board of trustees; that regular elections nave been held ever since be year 1882 in -the city of El Paso for the lection of trustees as members of said board. "Bv a charter granted the city in 1889 tbe legislature recognized El Pa so as a school district by providiog tbat it might levy a certain tax to maintain its public schools, and after his the . city issued said school bond. "Question No. 1. Neither of the elec- tionof April, 1882,aod Nov. 1882 being sufficient to legally or ate the city an lo de Dec dent school diet let, under the state of facts ehown above relative to the long continued exercise, by it of tbe powers of a - school district, can its legal existence as such at and since the timi it so commenced to act, be a quired into a suit by tbe city to recover taies levied fo school purposes for tbe years 18U4 and la.. "No. 2. The elections of March 31, 1883. at which tbe tax payers voted the tax for schools, being sufficient, is It conclusive y presumed from tbe long continued exerc se by tbe city (since the spring of 1882) of the functions of a school district as shown in tne a Dove statement, that when said election of March 31, 1883, was bad. it was legally In existence as a school distr ci The law which authorizes incorpor ated towae and c'tlea in this state to assume control of their publio schools confers upon such as may exercise the right a grant or additional mno pa power aod stands upon tbe same footing as an original grant of tbe municipal franchise. . Under our statutes, any town or city not incorporated may, by a compliance with their provision, ac quire a corporate existence for tbe sole ourpose or mansgtng tbe Tree schools within their limits and in such a case the rule clearly applle: and therefore we think tbe rule should aho ap ply to an existing municipality wricb has sought to acquire the additional iutbority of tbe management of it schools. Io tbe la ter case, the powers of two corporations, either oi which might legally ex'st in tbe same terri tory as a septrate corporation, are granted to one corporate body, aod no reason is seen wby tbe same effect should not be given to an irregular oroceedlDg to obtain control or tbe s hools, where an ex'stlog corpor- a'ion attempts to avail . itself of tbe benefit of the law, as is given in cafe of a community where no corporation ex lets. It it not strange, therefore, that when the cit'zens of El Paso fought to avail themselves or tbe beoent of the statute, they should have been mis'ed as to tbe metbod of proof dure. But under the rule previously announced, if tbe election was held under tbe Articles 3781 and 3782 of the R vised Statutes upon a petition of twenty prop erty tax pate, instead oi tetng held und-r section i of the act above nam ed, which required the written appll cation of fifty qualified voters and a maj -rity vote of the qualified electors of tbe city, this was an attempt to in- corp irate by virtue of. the law, and tbe mistake as to tbe statute which controlled the procedure did not render the assumption of the control of the free schools by the oity wholly void. The election was irreeular, and for that reason might nave b-en set a-ide by a proper proceeding instituted for tbat purpose. It follows from what has been said that, although the control of its school by tbe city of El Paso may have beet irregularly a"quired, and although such control may have been subi ct to be taken away by a proper proceeding Drought lor that purpose, until so tak en away it was a lawful control; and tbat the citv was for tbe time a separ ate school district aod entitled upon a compliance with tbe conftitution and laws t levy a tax for the support of its schools. We have not found it necessary to decide whether or not tbe long aqules- cence by the state and tbe citizens of a, i ra so m tbe assumption by tbe city of tb e control of the public schools is 4fc Awarded Highest Honors World's Pair. Qold Medal, Midwinter Fair. CBEAR3 such as to preclude an enquiry into tne regularity or its action, in a suit brought directly to;annul it. We mere ly decide, that since the city became de faoto an 1 in effect a separate school district, It had tbe power by a vote of its tax-payers to authorize a levy of a tax to support its schools. We answer the first question by say ing, that under the facts certified we are of tbe opinion tbat tbe validity of tne tax cannot be successfully ques tioned in tbis action. As to the secoud a u est ion we answer. that for tbe purpose of holding an election and levying the tax the city was in J as J in legal effect, a separate school district. Our decision in this case seems to be in conflict with the ruling in the ca e of Conkling vs. tbe City of El Pao, which was decided by the court who certify these questions, and in which a writ or error was re'ud by tbl court. (Conki ng vs. El Paso, 44 S. W. R p. 879; El Paeo vs. Conkling, 44S W. ttep.,9&i.) Tbe record having been returned to the court of civil appeals. we cannot say whether the cae are dtwnguisbable or not. if not, the court of civil appeals seem by certify ing the questions to entertain doubts a to tbe correctness of the r former ruling; and we are of "pinion tbat if the - questions be the same in the two cases, tbe ruling of that court aod of this in tbe former case was an e-ror.

M. went into the ditch at a point between Dutierr z and Can'a. Mexico, a distance of 1160 Kilometers south of El Paso, and is 20 hours late as a result. Tbe cause of tbe acoident is a mystery and promises to remain so for some time to come. Tbe train was running at a high rate of speed when, without a moment's notice, the entire train was derail ed acd was plunging along on the ties. Tbe train consisted of a water car, baggage car. and three coaches. The watt r ear and baggage car were overturned but the rema nder or the cars remained up r'ght. . No one was seriously injured but the Pullman porter and baggage master were slight'y bruised. It ' is explained by good autborlty tbat this was one of the many unex- piainable accidents which rail roads encounter. Immediately up on bearing of the acci dent, Superintendent Cox telegraph ed to have the gauge Inspected and to see ir taeitne and surface were perfect. An affirmative reply wss tbe result of the investigation and no cause can be (riven for tbe accident. It is a mystry how tbe pa'S'-ngers escaped ir jure as tramo has been ve'y heavy on this road lately, and it is safe to say that the coaches were well crowded. Knights of Pythias to Volunteer, Some days ago the local company of the unifo med rank of Knights of fytbiasoi tn s cty volunteered their services to Governor Cu hereon, In answer to tbe second call lor volunteers.
