It Cost a Mi lion Dollars. " Chief Architect King, who is build ing the new theater at Chihuahua states that the building will be ready for use by the early summer. This building is one of the largest and decidedly the finest in the republic of Mexico. There is not a building of the kind in the United States that will compare with it in the point of seat Ing capacity or stage room. The stage hold 5000 people, giving every one sixteen inches square. The main auditorium seats 25,000 people, which is decidedly more than the en tire population of tiie city. It is own ed by the state and is another of the many contrasts in Mexico. The buiU- ing stands in front of the state capifol and the latter looks like a carriage house compared with the theater. The building cost something like one mil lion dollars and would be a credit to New York or Paris. The scenery was made in Chicago and it is furnished throughout with, foreign material. A HARSH CARTOON IN A MEXICO PAPER Directed Against Governor Ahumada With Reference to the New Govern ment-Theater, Onofroff, the leading illustrated pa per of Mexico City, is out with a car toon on Governor Ahumada and his big theater at Chihuahua. It has a row of ants carrying material from the railroad track, to the theater build ing, another row carrying material from the building to the new residence of the governor, and two rows going up to the- stats treasury to get paid. Governor Ahumada is building a fine stone mansion to be his personal property and Onofroff figures it out that the governor is using the material bought for the theater to build his house. " The house is a three-story, solid stone structure built on American architecture and. when completed would be a credit to Washington. The theater and the governor's man sion are the only two thoroughly modern buildings in that city and any American lftywould be justly proud of either. PREPARATIONS FOR THE CARNIVAL BULL FIGHTS. Thirty Bulls Brought in, and There Will Be a Contest For the Fighting - Honors. Thirty fine bulls have been received at the arena in Juarez for the Carnival bull fights.

Antonio will be assisted by a corps of the best picadores and banderilleros in the republic and the best fights ev er been here are expected.

That they laid their tracks without the usual condemna tion proceedings as provided by law and have no right to possession. Craged With Stealing Bike. In the county court this morning Isaac Garcia, charged with stealing a bike, was found guilty and awarded the penalty of only one day in jail. It is such penalties as this that cause the officers to grit their teeth. They say the punishment does not fit the crime and such law breakers have no reason to fear the law as a few days spent in comfortable quarters at Bridgers ho tel is simply regarded as a rest by th average bicycle thief and for them no disgrace attaches thereto. A Vicious Burro Driver. Deputy Sheriff Bryant captured a ery small burro teamster out in East El Paso this morning, who is now in jail charged with aggravated assault.

AN INTERESTING CASE RE CALLED BY A LETTER. John Sellman Writes From the Phil ippines, Where He Has Just Recov ered From a Wound. S. L. Pierce has received a letter from John Sellman. an El Paso boy who is in the army in the Philippines, stating that he has about recovered from a severe wound received in ser vice there some time ago. John Sellman, it will be remembered is the young man who was once stolen from the Juarez jail by Lew Gasser, a plumber who was then working in El Paso. Sellman went over to Juarez one afternoon and got into a little trouble with some Mexicans. He was thrown in jail and Lew, his best friend, heard of it. Gasser was intoxicated F.'id wanted a little excitement and adven ture so went to Juarez to try his hand. He climbed upon the wall of the jail and let a rope down to Sellman who clung to the rope and was pulled over the wall." Just as the men reached the ground the soldiers saw them and fired a vol ley. They missed the mark, however, and Gasser and his friend escaped to the river and crossed into El Paso. Sellman then enlisted in the Unite! States army and was not heard from again until a few weeks ago when be wrote Mr. Pierce that he ' had been wounded. "The story of Gasser's par don by Governor Ahumada was ai unusual thing." said Mr. Pierce to a Herald reporter. "The Mexican officers tried in every way to arrest him but failed as he kept close on this side. Two years- ago the governor wanted to have the state capltol in Chihua hua plumbed and wanted a first clr.ss man to do it. He wrote to El Paso to the same plumbing firm and received ; city by the new company over the can the reply tnat only one man here coul 1 J die power of which a controversy do the work and he could not go to j arose.

W. S. WHEELER MAY BE MADE HUMANE OFFICER. For Service During the Carnival, to As sist Any Who Are in Need of Helj. W. S. Wheeler, the street mission ary, has returned from his trip Into New Mexico. The change of climate gave him a touch of la grippe and in capacitated him from work. He is again making talks on the streets of El Paso, however, and this morniug he was out agitating a better care for unfortunate people lodged within our gates. He wants to organize a sort of volunteer army of good Samaritans who will visit the hotels and lodging houses during the Carnival and In quire after the visitors to see if there are any who need assistance. He speaks truthfully when he says that there will be people here that hav ing come from lower climates will take cold and among them may be some poor unfortunate individuals who have not the means to secure medical at tention and consequently suffer a long spell of sickness and perhaps death when they could be saved by the good Samaritans notifying the authoritips of their presence. There has been some talk of the Carnival association giving him a spe cial appointment to look after cases of the above class and to be a sort of gen eral humane officer with authority to put a stop to any case of cruelty, in humanity or any misdeeds that natur ally come under his jurisdiction in his present capacity as street missionary, j It would be the very thing to do. Ke will naturally look after all such cases, but with the proper authority he could handle the cases to better advantage and be a useful adjunct to the arms of the law. Let it be said when the Carnival is over that El Paso pro-tec-ted her visitors from all crime and suffering while in ner care. 'Pay as you go' is my rule."

Dieter the council con sented to pay over a part of the money due the corporation. City Electrician Peticolas has com pleted his task and will submit a lengthy written report tonight. He will recommend that the full amount due the company be paid as the candle power of the lamps .accord ing to every known test, is in accor dance with the requirements of the contract. The lamps after a thorough test have been found to be 2,000 candle power.

A SCHOOL BOY PAINFULLY HURT BY A FALL He Was Not Killed. As Stated, and Is About the Streets Today. The report published in the morn ing Times about a school boy being killed yesterday was found upon in vestigation to be without foundation. The lad, James Cazares, did fall from his bicycle yesterday but receiv ed no serious Injury. His face was bruised on one side by coming in con- j tact with the hard ground, and bis lip was cut by the blow. Dr. S. T. Turner dressed the wound and told the boy to call at his offico I this morning for further treatment. I The lad was on hand at the -appointed 1 hour and seemed to be suffering no serious inconvenience from, his slight injuries. The accident occurred on the play ground during recess. The boy's head did not strike the pedal of his wheel as alleged by the morning paper, and there was no hole cut in his skull. He was not rendered unconscious. The parents of the boy are indig nant that such an unfounded report should have been published without proper investigation. 8 8 8 8 8 8 W. J. Batts.
