Instead of, sending one band, the Mexican government sent two, and the two were consolidated. Their good work is known to all the people. The Hon. Moses Dillon, Chairman : My Dear Sir: . In referring&o,your kind invitation to the Mexican colony, through meV to participate in'your 4th of " July" cele bration, I have the honor and pleasure to Inform you that I have obtained per mission from the government I repre sent in your city for the use of the military band now stationed at the City of Chihuahua to assist, in con junction with the Mexican colony, in commemorating your natal day. Hoping that the occasion which you are about to celebrate will be a grand success and reflect due credit on your citv, I beg to remain yours faithfully, Francisco Maiden. El Paso, Texas, June 25, 1898. The Hon. Francisco Mallen, Mexican Consul, Kl Paso, Texas. Dear Sir: It is with the most grati fying pleasure that we, as representa tives of the people of El Paso general ly, and the executive committee of the Fourth of July celebration particular ly, embrace the present opportunity of returning our sincere and heartfelt thanks to you personally, and as the representative of your government, for tendering us the use of one of your excellent military bands on the occa sion of the celebration of the anniver sary of our national independence day, and we beg to assure you that your kind and thoughtful action is deeply appreciated and will be long remem bered by the city of El Paso. Please convey to His Excellency, President Porfirio Diaz, our grateful thanks for the interest he has mani fested in our celebration, and the ex cellent service be has rendered in so materially assisting toward Its success. We have the honor to. remain yours faithfully. W. S. McCutcheon. Moses Dillon. Committee. A. B. McKie. Sec'y. El Paso, Texas, July 5, 1898. To the President, Porfirio Diaz, Mexico: . , ,, The regimental band$ returned to Juarez last evening. Their musical talent and. military dicipllne gained for them the applause that honors our army, and the American people, high ly appreciating the courtesy of their kind assistance, warmly thank you, and the Mexican people, for the signi ficance of this marked consideration. I beg to reiterate to you my personal gratitude. . Francisco Mallen. Following is a copy of the letter addressed in Spanish to Mayor Magof fin by Consul Mallen on Independence Day. Mr. Mayor: The Mexican nation, governed 'as this country by democratic institutions, recognizes in your political personage the representative of the people of this progressive city, and therefore it af fords me great pleasure to tender though you and in the name of my gov ernment and that of the Mexican Colo ny of thia district over- which I have the honor" to preside, as also for my self personally, a cordial greeting on this, day of glorious memory for the American people; wishing you happi ness and ..desiring; that the amigable relations now existing between the two sister republics may become each day more cordial and lasting, I beg to re main, Yours very respecfully, 4 July, 1898 Francisco Mallen. The Price Of Beer. "Probably the best thing- the saloon keepers could do in order to offset their loss of profit by reason of the in creased cost of beer, which extra bur den the brewers will not share with them, would be to abolish the free lunch counter," suggested a New York man the other day. This free lunch business costs a considerable sum in the course of a year, and if all were to abolish it the public would be just as. well off,, while the saloon men would be. greatly benefited. This seems to-many a wiser' plan than to either raise the price of a ' glass of beer or to give the buyer a more li beral allowance of fpam. Really, the extra dollar per barrel involved in the war tax is hardly justification for a rise in the retail price. It does not amount to 3 cents a gallon and the cost of a single glass is not enhanced by as much as one-fifth of a cent. At $5 a barrel the retailer can still make over 100 per cent profit, and that ought to satisfy any reasonable dealer County Court. The county court appointed L. S. Stone guardian of estate of Alois Steiner, and bond was fixed at $20,000. The appraisers appointed were Messrs. A. P. Coles, E. J. Hadlock, and Savasre. A. P. Coles was this morning ap pointed guardian oi tne estate of John and Dowald Hosie. Fred Shafter, Joe Pollard, and H. B. Stevens were ap pointed appraisers. Joe Alter was appointed guardian of tne estate and person oi John Alter, Jr., and Joe Alter. Pure Hygenle Ice. Made from distilled water.

Lawler. When the of ficers here had been notified to look ont for Lawler,one of them went to the Western Union Telegraph company to see if any of the boyi had seen him, and they all - said they had not. The -boys who are always anxious to become detectives, and are really the best assistants that the detectives of our large cities have, began to keep their eyes open to find out if Lawler was in town-. Carl Marquett and Frank- Donelly went to the house where Lawler board ed when he was in the employ - of the company as an operator, but the pro prietor said he knew nothing of Law ler. So the boys went around to the Two Owls saloon where a friend of Lawler's worked and asked him if he bad seen Lawler and he told them that Lawler was in the back room. One of the boys watched the place while the other went after an officer, Chas, White was found and made the arrest, but publicly these two bright young boys have received none of the praise due them for the work in the case.

From a letter received in this city a day or so ago from Cyrus Thorpe who spent last winter in El Paso, it is learned that he has been made a sec ond lieutenant of marines and is on the St. Paul. Mr. Thorpe is a graduate of Annapolis and had resigned on account of health. After being greatly benefited by his stay in this climate he applied for a commis sion with the marines,., which was im mediately given him, and he - was as signed to the St. Paul. Mr. Thorpe while in El Paso itayed at the Plerson, and made hosts of friends in El Paso, all of whom will be happy to know of his appointment. This cipher dispatch has been sent by Capt.

From the New York Press. , j Disraeli paid Gladstone a fine tribute when he said: "Gladstone was with out a single redeeming vice." W. J. Spratley, the Egyptologist, thinks that ' 'there can be no doubt that the Egyptian soldiers in ancient tinea went into the battle to the inspiring cheer of 'Hoo Ra! Hoo Ra! Hoo Ra? " and if the average questioning nan asks why, he replies with this: ''Be cause Hoo Ra (in the tongue of the Rameses) means 'the king! the king! the king!' "Ex. One of the most interesting sights of Manila are the girls who make clgtrs or cigarettes. About sunset any weak day you may see coming out of a long, low building, near one of the bridges, and wending their way by twos aid threes, many hundred women, clad In the simple but picturesque costume of the Indian, of all ages,, from 12 to SO, most of them having fine eyes, hair and figure, but homely faces. -r-Ex.-: Captala Slgsbee's reply to Lieu ten ant Carranza's challenge to fight a duel is now in the hands of the navy depatment, having been sent there by the former In pursuance of the naval regulations. There. In all probability, it will be put to sleep. The law in the navy against duelling is strict, the theory being that the officers will pro bably have enough legitimate fighting to do. If Carranza will go off and get a warship, he will no doubt find Siga bee ready enough to fight. F. W. Ramsden, the English consul at Santiago de Cuba, who asked to have an English warship sent there from Jamaica, is the same man who in 1873 let the world know of the mass acre of a portion of the crew of the Virginiua and helped thus to save the remainder.

Last night was given their first social in the new hall and it was a most enjoyable affair. The Mexican man dolin club of 18 pieces gave the musical portions of the program, and the following gentlemen gave short speeches on various topics: Messrs. John Sorenson, David Loeb, Joe Grant, A. S. Eylar, W. W. Bridgers, J. A. Escajeda and Agipita Martinez. A few speeches were made In Spanish. About 11 o'clock refreshments were served. At 1.2 . o'clock sharp the llgnts were lowered on tbe enjoyable scene and the festivities were declared at an end. These socials of the K. of L. are becom.ng very popular and reflect great credit on the order. Post Office News. The post office box rent is due and those who do not comply with the card put in their boxes by the tenth of July will have their boxes locked on them so they can't get their mall. This is one of tbe rules of Uncle Sam and he doesn't wait any longer than the sti pulated tlme either. So you would better settle your box rent before the box is taken away from you. W. T.

Miss Maud Doan is at the stamp window now, and is giving everybody satisfaction io the way she handles the position. She goes in at a hard time, as a quarter is beginning, box rents are due, and the accounts of keys have to be kept. Brevity Is the Soul of Wit. The oid saying goes that brevity is the soul of wit. If that be so, then Hon. Web Flanagan, the new internal revenue collector at Austin, certainly appreciates wit, for on last Saturday Deputy Collector Bovee wired Collec tor Flanagan for more stamps and tbe reply received was Austin, Texas, July 21, '98. "Bovee, El Paso. En route. FLANAGAN."

B.Green's project for the establishment of a large club house and fishing grounds at -Mustang Island, near Roekport, is meeting with the- ereatest suc cess and that the actual work of con structing the magnificent club house will begin very shortly. It is said that 300 members have already been secur ed aad that the list embraces the most distinguished business men, politicians and sportsmen of the country, includ ing irresiaens William McJilaiey, ex President Grover Cleveland, -Senator Matt Quay and. many others. The membership - fee is $50, making the total sum collected ud to date about f 15,000, which will be expended in the erection of a club house. This, club will be the most prominent sports men's organization in the United States, and that it will bring the wond erful tarpon fishine grounds around Roekport into national prominence goes without saying. Already thousands of fishermen and hunters from jevery part of America, several ;from Kng-land and one from China, have enjoyed the piscatorial amusement at Roekport, and all of them . unite in pronouncing the section a veritable "paradise of sport." General Wade Hampton says its equal can not be found elsewhere: National Committeeman R. C. Kerens of St. Louis pronounoes it the realiza tion of Isaak Walton's dream; tbe American Angler of New York says it is "the greatest discovery of the age" as a fishing and hunting resort; South ern Paolfio and Missouri, Kansas and Texas railroad officials say it is the ideal home of all that goes to make np the pastime of true sportsmen, and news papers and tourists all agree that it is the one spot in the country where the fisherman can get the worth of his money. For years ex-President Cleve land . has been anxious to arrange his affairs so that he might visit Texas and enjoy a bout with the tarpon in the vicinity of Rookport. Prior to his last inauguration he wrote a letter from Gray Gables to Mr. P. H.
