EL PASO DAILY HERALD. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1900.
WAR ON THE PEST HOUSE Some Of the Councilman Get Excited. ANOTHEK FRANCHISE Asked For By the New Telephone Company. The New Electric Light Company Given More Time to Raise their Poles. The Old Company Wants to Bid on Light ing. The council met last night in reg ular weekly session with Mayor Magof fin in the chair and Aldermen McDuf fle, Ogden, Clifford, Burton, Grant, Badger, B runner, and Stewart at their desks. There was a good number of visitors most of whom had business before the council. After the reading of the minutes ot the last meeting, which were approv ed, the regular routine of business was taken up. Chief Lockart stated that he had no report. City Attorney Judge Kemp said that he had received notice that the judgment of Mrs. Luke against the city of El Paso had been affirmed in the higher court. City Engineer Wimberley recom mended that the petition of J. P. Ram sey and others for sewer connections be allowed and it was so ordered. City Electrician Peticolas said: "On September 20, the city council order ed the International Electric Light and Power company to raise their poles and I positively know that the city clerk notified them to do so. But it has never been done and as their time expires tonight I thought it best to bring the matter before your hon orable body. They were given three months in which to raise their poles and there is lot a day passes but what there is great danger." Alderman B runner moved that they be notified at once and the city clerk was ordered to notify them and to give them one more chance. Alderman Clifford read the monthly police report which was as follows: Amount of fines assessed, $2,031; $1,664 in fines collected; $264 in fines served; and $103 escaped. The money had ' been turned over to the treasurer. The following bills were ordered paid: George D. Bernard & Co.. of St. Louis, $79.15 for printing the $75, 000 school bonds; V. S. Holtzman $522 for building the sidewalk on the east side of Buckler square on Oregon street. Upon recommendation of Alderman Brunner the International Electric Light and Power Co., were given more time in which to fill their contract with the city. The city clerk then read the following communication from Z. T. White: El Paso, Texas, Dec. 20, 1900. To the Honorable Mayor and City Council of the City of El Paso. Tex as: Gentlemen At your last regular meeting you were requested by Z. . T. White representing the El Paso Gas. Electric Light and Power company, to have specifications prepared show ing the number and quality of arc lights you wished to be used in light ing the streets of El Paso, as said El Paso Gas, Elctric Light and Power company desires to make a bid for the furnishing of such lights as the city maw desire, and as the said company is thoroughly prepared to furnish such lights as the city may desire and wherever the same may pe placed. We now state to your honorable body that we are ready and anxious to compete for the light ing of the streets of this city and are ready and anxious to bid upon the same whenever any contract for the lighting of the streets is to be let by your honorable body and if we are successful in underbidding our com petitors, whoever they may be, that may see fit to compete for the light ing of the streets of this city, and the contract is awarded to us. we will enter into bond in any reasonable sum such as the city council may des ignate, conditioned that we shall fur nish In every respect just such lights as the city may co tract for. And we further agree, in case the contract for the lighting of the streets of this city should be awarded to us under our bid, as above mentioned, that we will furnish the citizens of the city of El Paso incandescent electric lights during the whole of the time covered by any contract the city may make with us, at prices not to exceed 75 cents for 16-candle power lights to 12 o'clock midnight, and ft for 16-candle power lights for all night, and at 15 cents per thousand watts, meter measurement. We respectfully protest against the awarding of any contract for the lighting of the strets of EI Paso by your honorable body without an op portunity to bid upon the same. Re spect full 7 submitted. El Paso Gas, Electric Light and Power Co.. By Z. T. White, President. Attorney Millard Patterson spoke at length in support of Mr. White's pe tition and scored the new electric light company in many ways. He brought up the trouble that the city is now having with the new company and said that doing as they are now their charter can be taken away from them at any time, explaining that they had agreed to furnish , 1,200 candle power lights and were not doing it. Mr. Patterson said that the city electrician would bear him out in the statement that 300 watt lights would only mean 120 candle power lights where 3,000 watts would be required for the con tracted 1,200 candle power. In closing Mr. PatterFou iuid that if a contract was made lih. the old company for 300 watt lurhis they would get 300 watt lights b - ..'.at if the contract called for 1,200 casJle power that they would get 1.200 candle power. Upon motion the petition was ordered received and filed for future reference. Thee lerk then read a petition from Mrs. A. M. Brett, T. C. Lyons, and W. W. Bridgers, composing the Southern Independent Electric Telephone and Telegraph company, asking for 30 years franchise. The petition was practically the same as had been sub mitted before and refused, and upon motion the matter was referred to the fire and water committee which is the same committee that killed it before. Alderman Clifford said that there was a dangerous sidewalk on South El Paso street that should either be repaired to taken up. It is a board walk and unless it was fixed at once the city would have another damage suit on its hands. Mr. Brunner said that there was one just like it on St. Louis street opposite the Pierson hotel and George Ogden of the street main tenance committee wes instructed to notify the property owners to remove these walks at once. Alderman Clifford then got up and cleared bis throat and in an instant every eye was on him and George Og den said that he could hear the clock in the court house tower ticking. It was known that something was going to drop and no one wanted to miss it. Mr. Clifford said: "Gentlemen I think that it is quite time to close the pest ; grave a simple service was read by the house. If I am not mistaken there ; chaplain, a volley of three blank cart has not been a case of small pox in ridges was fired over the lowered cask the pest house for the last fourteen et, and. last of all. a bugler sounded months. Am I not right, Dr. Race? And the doctor told him he was. "Now what is the use of keeping that place open at all of this expense? I move you that the pest house be clos ed, that the horses be sent out to Fleck's ranch which is only a short distance, and where they could be ob tained in a very short time if needed: and that the board of health be asked to cut their force down to one man." Quick as a flash Alderman Brunner was on his feet with a counter-prop osition but Mr. McDuffie beat him with, "I second that motion." Mr. Brunner said that he did not want the pest house closed until after the Carnival at least and that he did not believe the board of health could get along with only one man. Mr. Badger thought with Mr. Brunner, when Dr. Race, the city physician, got up and made some very strong remarks. "I want to get right in the harness and work with you gentlemen," said he. "but if you close the pest house at ; this time you are going to have every merchant of El Paso get up and rebel. Why. gentlemen, one case of small pox here today would cost you more than twenty times what it is costing you to keep the disease out. "I don't want to be obstinate and, Mr.' Clifford. I do not want to hurt your feelings, but I think that it would be folly to carry your motion. I myself think that the city is at too much of an expense but I can't see my way clear to recommend that your motion be j carried. I have just lost one of the j best small pox nurses that I ever had.

Wuen the roll was called the following voted aye: Ogden, Burton. Badger, Brunner, and Stewart; yhile Aldermen Clifford. McDuffle, and Grant voted no. But the motion was carried and Aldermen Burton, Badger, and Brunner were appointed on the committee. Alderman Grant wanted more sprinkling done in his part of town and it was explained to him that all but two of the sprinklers were in the repair shop and that those two were doing the best they could. City Clerk Catlin was instructed to go to Austin and have the $75,000 school bonds recorded. The mayor was instructed to issue a warrant to him for all expenses. He will leave on De cember 26th so as to be back by Jan uary 9th when the bonds are to be sold. - There was a little discussion about not holding a meeting next week but the meeting adjourned without coming to a decision. A SOLDIER'S FUNERAL. The private theatricals arranged for one evening were postponed until after New Year's, for . something sad had happened. Tnat morning one of Cap tain Gunn's men returned to the fort for an ambulance a soldier had been killed in the skirmish. Next day just before retreat he was buried with mil litary honors in the pretty little' ceme tery just over the hill. The casket was wrapped in a large flag and borne on a caisson to its last resting-place, while the band played a dead-march. The procession, a lone one, included the officers and men of the dead war rior's own company, and his favorite horse, which was led, with his riding boots reversed in the stirrups. His hel met rested upon the casket. At the ;that most solmen of all army calls. "taps." From "Holiday Week at an Army Post," by Harriet A. Lusk. in the December Woman's Home Com panion.

It stops coughs by curing- their cause. It heals weak lungs, builds up wasted tissues, and promotes the health of every or gan of the body. "I am a railroad gent," writes I. B. Staples, Esq.. of Barclay, Osage County, Kans., "and four years ago my work keeping- me in a warm room and stepping- out frequently into the cold air gave me bronchitis, which became chronic and deep-seated. Doctors (ailed to reach my case and advised me to try a higher air, but, fortunately for me, a friend advised me to try Dr. Pierce's medicines. I commenced taking- your 'Golden Medics Discovery,' and by the time I had taken the first bottle I was better, and after taking four bottles my cough was entirely gone.
