"I ran just see London as the great cirv is today." said the Englishman who is employed in the G. H. yards, this morning, "with every public build ing closed. Hardly a place of business open, all public buildings and business houses and the majority of the homes heavily draped in black. In 80 per rent of the homes tears of genuine sor row are being shed. The grief is not from the surface but from the hart, for every Briton loved the queen. The flags are all at half mast and trimmed iti black and a silence such as Loudon has probably nevy known pervades the city. "To those who had the distinction of knowing the venerated queen, her loss is something inexpressible. Those who have served her have priceless treas ures in remembering her kindness, her encouragement and benignant disposi tion to reward with more than gener osity the smallest personal or national service. Often in her daily drives she would leave her carriage to go Into the homes of even the most humble subjects to sympathize with them and minister to their wants. She often sent baskets of delicacies from the palace to the homes of the poor. Such acts have helped to make her endeared to her people and while life in England lasts her memory will be cherished. "There has also been a close and friendly relationship between the queen and her military forces, both army and navy. The British soldiers had a deep affection tor her and it was reciprocated by the queen. She reign ed but did not rule. Her power as a sovereign was but the shadow of that exercised by" her grandfather, George III. a century ago. She has given the government authority to the chosen representatives of the people. "Her reign is associated with the greatest advance in the world's prog ress on record and she has contributed largely to the advancement. Her in fluence was felt over the entire world and the grief caused by her death is world-wide. Americans mourn, and that being the case, can the grief of her own people be imagined? She was the wisest woman, the most genfrous ruler and the most popular sovereign ever known." Four workmen in the car department of the G. H. shops did some wonderful- In th order for gates on the stre-t crossings of the S. P. the authorities overlooked the very worst crossing in town.

HUDSON TO SHARE. with the inside pair of wheels of the truck. These wheels had to be replaced by good ones. Now. it is much more trouble to replace the inside pair of wheels than the outside, for the truck must be relieved of the weight of the car by jacking the car up two feet, and then the truck must be turned around so that the inside pair of wheels can be taken out. Within ten and a half minutes from the time the car was placed in the care of the four shopmen it was on its way back to the train with a good pair of wheels instead of the bad ones. Thirty minutes is the ordinary time for such a piece of work. in fact that Is considered good time. It is hardly likely that such good time as these men made this morning was ever made before. SANTA FE CHANGES. J. E. Hurley, formerly superintend ent of the New Mexico and Rio Gran de divisions of the Santa Fe. who is well known in El Paso, is now gener al superintendent of the Santa Fe Pa cific with headquarters in Los Angeles, his appointment having just been an nounced. The position to which he has been, appointed was made vacant by the promotion of Arthur G. 'Wells, who was holding that position, to the position of general manager of the San ta Pacific, vice W. G. Nevins. resign ed. Mr. Hurley has been succeeded as A trainman on the Sunset Limited this morning was asked why there were so few passengers on the train. He said that people who would travel on the S. P. from choice are going oth er routes now to avoid the detention at th Texas state line by the absurd quarantine. Well. El Paso and her newspapers have certainly done their part in fighting the quarantine, and if the railroad is losing by it the com pany should take up arms against it. By taking the proper steps the com pany could surely do some very eff ective work against it.

Sr., owns a farm of sixty five acres which comes up within about half a mile of the big geyser which is causing so much excitement in that neighborhool. Mr. Hudson . says that his land hes been greatly enhanced In value, as it is consederably close to the main well. It is indeed close consid ering the fact htat the land for many miles around Beaumont is being bought up at fabulous figures. Mr. Hudson gives bis son the follow in description of the big well: The derrick up through which the oil is spouting is 64 feet high, yet the oil is ' ascending Into the air more than dou ble its height. Protruding from the ground at the bottom of the derrick there is a pipe about three feet in length. From this is the point of egress of the oil geyser and the re mainder of the column is in the air without support, other than the im mense pressure at the bottom of the . well. From the mouth, of the pipe the stream of oil goes to the top of the derrick in a compact body, cylindrical in form. At the top it strikes one end SPARKS FROM THE ENGINE.

No mention was made of any other recent cases, but the notice in the gov ernment marine health reports indi cate that other cases have appeared lately.
