Mr. Shepard said that he was glaa that the meeting was called and glad that all were in good humor. He said however that he had no promise now to make the shippers of El Paso but wanted to know what their griev ances were and if reasonable some thing might be done in the future. Mr. Shepard said in part: "I would like to see some arrange ments made whereby El Paso could profit and not hurt the company which I represent.

WEBB, the Druggist 220 San Antonio Street- OUR SHIPPERS SHOULD PREPARE BETTER BRIEFS, The conference with Mr. Shepard yesterday ought to show the local ship pers two things: first, that they must approach railroad freight men with specific complaints, backed up by ac curately compiled figures, if they would secure any sort of consideration fur ther than pretty talk; second, that there is no hope for any positively fav orable policy on the part of the South ern Pacific toward the city of El Paso. It may be that El Paso is wrong in asking for special favors. Mr. Shep ard says we are. But other cities have asked and have received, and there is no particular reason why El Paso should not be favored, at least, to the extent of giving us all the benefit to which we are entitled by reason of our geographical situation. Yet Mr. Shepard has a side that de serves consideration. El Paso, as a city, must get out of the notion that the jobbing Interests are the most im portant. They are a good thing, they help to advertise the town, they attract buyers to the city to a certain extent, and yet they have not the same im portance in the community as produc tive industries. A large amount of job bing business may be carried on with small capital and few employes, and the benefit to the town at large is only indirect. The jobbing interests add lit tie to the permanent wealth of a small community. Mr. Shepard has said that the South ern Pacific will do all it can to help manufacturing industries. The other railroads will certainly take as gener ous a course as the Southern Pacific. There is no reason to doubt that man ufacturing industries in this city will get fair treatment, and more than fair. Perhaps there is here clearly indicated the line along whicn El Paso should work to secure permanent and greater prosperity. So far as incoming freight rates go. tuere are few or no complaints made regarding them. We should resist a raise, but at present they are general ly satisfactory. There is a good deal to ponder over in tne remark of Mr. Shepard and other freight men that have "recently visited us, to the effect that the cheap incoming rates compen cte for the higher outgoing. At any rate, whatever is done, nothing is gain ed by going off half cock, or making complaints in general terms. ure of his fellows at the academy be cause of his lack of spirit. But many of the members of congress are in earn est against hazing and will use the Booz affair as a club with which to hammer away at this brutal practice. Other young men have been over hazed at the government military academy and hazing is too apt to become brutal and dangerous to be tolerated in our schools. A proper trial of strength and courage is one thing but brutality' and injury are another. o Boston will have a cup defender built by a firm that has built two of the cup winning yachts, the Puritan that defeated the Genesta in 1885, and the Mayflower which flew away from the British Gala.ea in the race of the next year. Lip ton says the only ship build ers that he is afraid of are the Herres- hoffs. The newspapers are trying to per suade the Boer general, DeWet, that he'd better come in out of his name or he will get into it. It is very fortu nate when people in the public eye have punnable names; it relieves the strain of wars, epidemics, schisms, and all calamities. o Odious comparisons are being made between the queen's speech to parlia ment and McKinley's to congress. Vic toria's consisted of seventy words, William's of 22,000. But we make our chief executive earn his salary and England doesn't pretend to. o One of the greatest reforms that could be worked in this city and sec tion would be the introduction of the penny in calculations and in daily use. c.. i-aso is one of the very few places where the penny is practically un known. o Canada points with pride to her mat rimonial record. During this last year only seventeen divorces were decreed in all Canada, and Prince Edward Is land with a population of 100.000 has not a had a divorce in thirty years. o Only four counties out of sixty-one in New York state gave Bryan a majority at the last election. These were three counties about Greater New York, and Schoharie county in the interior. o Seventy-five thousand people were vaccinated in Ne wYork last week. The new cases of small pox are compara tively few and the disease is under control. o There will be one populist in the next legislature of Texas as against twenty- two in 1894 and six in 1898. By 1!04. there will only be a faint elusive mem- has those rates. While the rates out of here are some higher than that of other places they are based on the combination of local rates and if changed it would not affect El Paso as the rates to the smaller towns would be correspondingly lowered. We have nothing to do with the Al buquerque or Santa Fe tariffs and can only give rates on our own line. We might make some minor changes if your secretary will prepare a sched ule showing the rates on all kinds of goods and pointing out the unjust things but we cannot give El Paso an advantage over other cities. We can hi moi $150 in cash. Not satisfied with this and fearing that he would identify them they riddled his body with bul lets and left him beside the road. Traveling northward they had reach ed a small village some fifty miles this side of Jimulco when they were arrest ed and sent to Torreon where they are now in jail awaiting trial. No one wno has seen them knows anything of them further than mat they are from the United States. 'MID-WINTER CARNIVAL RATES."

"I have noticed that you threaten to throw all your business to one road. Now that is not right. It Is unfair and unjust and we will have nothing to do with It. The Southern Pacific company wants to see El Paso grow and does not want to see you go Into a boycott scheme that will certainly revert to your injury. It will demora lize all the transcontinental rates and injure everybody connected with it. If you can make us a fair, square propo sition we wil do all we can to settle the matter." Mr. Shepard went on to say that EI Paso was under no disadvantage as matters now stand for the rates in here will more than make up the dif ference in the rates out. The geo graphical position of El Paso gave the city an advantage and it s now en joying it Mr. Browne of the Browne-Manza-nares company explained to Mr. Shep ard that Las Vegas could sell goods farther west of here than EI Paso could and could even sell right In the door of this city. He wanted to know why this was the case. Mr. Shepard said he did not know but if anything was actually wrong It could be settled if the committee here would point out to him just what ar ticles Las Vegas could sell cheaper. Mr. Moye said that El Paso could once look to Mexico for Datronasrn but that had ended on account of the through rates and now the merchants here have practically no territory at all. Mr. Shepard said that El Paso had grown from a village of 6,000 people to one of 25,000 in fifteen years and it seemed to him that there was nothing wrong in the face of that fact.
