EL PASO DAILY HERALD, TUESDAY, JANUARY 22 1901
X ! Link and Pin. POINTERS FROM A BRITON. An Englishman, who has only been awav fro mhia Albion home about ten year's and who is now employed in the shops and In the yards of the G. H. in this city, says he is able to Rive a nointer to the author of, the rtippatcn in yesterday's Herald in regard to the roval family of England. "I will be fifty years of age tomor row." he said to "l.nk and Pin" this morning, "and forty years of my life were spent In Middlesex oh what was then the outskirts of Iondon. but the town has now been extended so as to cover that district entirely. T think I an? well enough acquainted with the history of the royal family or England ' to know that Queen Victoria has had nine children instead of eight as stated in the dispatch to the Herald yesterday evening. "The child thai, was omitted in that dispatch is Alice Maud Mary and she was the most povlar member of the family. She was knowr as the beauty of the royal family. She was born in April 1853 married to Prince Louis af terwards "Grand Duke of Hesse." in July 1862. and died in 1878. Her death having occurred so long ago is probab ly the cause of her name being missed. "I have seen the Prince of Wales many times and knew him beter than I do the head? or the United States government. His Marlborough home was not far from where I was born and lived forty years. He is not at all as bad a man as one who reads - the American papers would think. The papers here only tell of his bad qual ities, but I know that he has many good ones. He is loved by all Britons because he is a kind-hearted, common place mart and strives with all . his might to please his people.' He is near ly always busy attending to acts re quested of him Try the people, 'such as laying corner stones, conducting big social functions, etc. "As king- the Prince of Wales will be known as King Edward VII of Great Britain and Ireland and Emper or of India. If England were to be made a republic today he would with out a doubt be made its first president, so great Is his popularity in that coun try. He can't possibly be as bad as Americans think he is. or he would not be so popular at home." and Walker's place was taken by C. H. Cole, who was third trick man. The position of third trick man has been llled by William Reading, who was holding a position as operator. GARRICK IN LUCK. Master Mechanic Garrick of the G. II returned this morning from Beaumont where he has been to investigate the oil strike at that place. He says the oil strike and excitement it has caused has not been at all exaggerated, but there is greater excitement there than ever occurred in Texas before and that a larger amount of capital is there now being invested and looking for places to invest than was ever before collected in any Texas city at one time. When asked if the report that 100. 000 gallons of oil was standing in one hole, he said that iOO.000 gallons did not begin to express it. that there was oil. oil everywhere and embankments were being thrown up to keep it from overflowing the railroads and the whole country, and it just keeps flow ing in a mighty stream with a deafen ing roar. There is great danger of the oil being ignited and every precaution is taken to prevent such a catastro phe. No one is allowed near the oil with fire of any kind and railroad en gines are compelled to travel through the oil district with as little exertion as possible to prevent sparks from be- in blown out into the oil. Mr. Garrick has about forty acres of land, the edge of which is within i few hundreds yards of the big well and is now considered one of the most valu able tracts of land in the state. He has had many offers for it at fabulous prices, but he knows a good thing as well as the other fellows, and refuses to let it loose. He will form a stock company of his own and develop his j property. Mr. Garrick brought home a sample of the oil and it appears to contain both illuminating and lubricating qual ities. In appearance it greatly resem bles the common heavy machinery oil, but has a slight kerosene smell It has been said that the Beaumont oil will never be fit for anything but il luminating purposes, but Mr. Garrick says he is satisfied that it will make a good lubricant when properly treated.

I thought that the Mexi can government would not be disposed to insist on the adoption of paid stip ulation, after its uselessness had been demonstrated; and that it was the duty of the residents of El Paso, Texas, who were interested in this matter, to take the necessary steps to convince the government of the United States that the object of the convention could be accomplished if it was carried into ef fect, even if the prescriptions contained in said article VI of the proposed treaty were eliminated.
