Link and Pin. A KINDLY MENTION. Throuth the kindness of J. A. Spelli cv. local passenger and ticket agent of the S. P., The Herald has received an artistic, descriptive and interesting folder just issued by the Cincinnati Hamilton & Dayton railway company. The folder contains short sketches of the cities and scenic and interesting features of the south and southwest and many half tone illustrations of plac es of beauty which may be reached bv the C. H. & D-. railroad ana con nations. It is entitled "Pleasant Trins to Sunnv Lands." Throueh the. eflorts of S. F. B. Morse. luLssenzer traffic manager, and H. M Mavo. "advertising agent, of the At lantic PVfiem of the S. P.. El Paso is included in the cities of the southwest whifh have received special mention in this folder. The following is the kindlv mention which the Pass City "This beautiful city of 20,000 inhab itants lies on the east bank of the Rio Grande. On the Mexican side of the nit Orande are the Sierra Madres. a range of high, picturesque mountains, skirting the river for a hundred miles or more, opposite the city lies the only easy passage through this range, on the American side of the river tower the Franklin mountains. "Across the Rio Grande from El Paso, with its antique shacks of adobe and bold tracings of semi-barbaric era, with its ancient cathedrals. and purely Mexican customs, in juxta-poscition to the advancement, enlightenment, and modernized edifices of El Paso, Is the city of Juarez, quaint and old. inviting and interesting. It is reached by a 20 minutes drive or street car ride from the American city, and Is a place of never-ending interest to the American tourist. "Side trips Trom El Paso are plenti ful. The tourist may visit the City of Mexico with little additional expense, i Manv of the towns, mining camps and ranches of New Mexico, Arizona, and I Mexico, within one or two hundred j miles of El Paso, are well worth a ( visit of a few days. One of the most interesting and attractive is Cloud croft, with ah elevation of -3,000 feet, a growing health resort." Though short, 'tis sweet, and the folder having a national circulation, will speak these pleasant words about El Paso to people all over the United ; States and to some extent in loreign the travel will be by the shortest line. The tourist cars will come over that line instead of over the circuitous route they now take. These cars and the regular passenger trains will bring an enormoiH amount of people from the eastern and central states to the south west." TO MAN THE WISCONSIN. A special train loaded with United States marines passed through west ward on the S. P. this afternoon. The train consited of three baggage cars, six sleeping cars and a caboose. There are 205 sailors on tho train in charge of Lieutenant Wiley. Other officers on the train are Lieutenants Williams and Senn. Chief Carpenter Burroush and Warrant Machinist Trevorrow. The marines are being taken from New York to San Francisco to man the United States battleship Wisconsin, wnich is to go into commission at San Francisco Monday. They expect to arrive there on that day and go aboard the ship. The sailor boys strolled away from the ship while it stood in the yards and it was with considerable difficulty that they were all gathered in when the time came to start. The engineer tooted his whistle long and loud, until he had the citizens thinking that there was a fire or some other catastrophe was taking place. They were finally all rounded up. however, and tho train left at 2:30. Francis West is an artist and illus trates tbe write-ups for the papers of the league. He is also making oil and water color pictures of some of the scenic features along their route. The newspaper men expressed regret that they had happened into El Paso on such a disagreeable day. They said bad weather was nothing new to them. as they had been accompanied by that kind for tbe past several weeks and in one town In the northwest when they had the pleasure of seeing Old Sol for five minutes it was such an unusual happening that they made note of it in their log book. However that lessens not the regret that they may not have the pleasure of basking in the famous January sunshine which blesses El Paso with its presence about ninety- nine days out of every hundred. .

The Baca extradition hearing went over yesterday until this morning, up ou application of counsel for defen dant. The case Is attracting a great deal of interest and evidence has been in troduced that has a tendency to com plicate the case considerably. The main prosecuting witness was Leandro Carrasco, who was robbed. He stated that he was awakened in the middle of the night by a noise and before he could do anything be was seized and tied. The crowd, about seven or eight men. then took his wife out to a Fmall house and forced her to tell where his money was kept. She told them after severe punishment and they got $1,200, or all he had. They then abused and punished him. his wife and uncle in a miserable way. Carrasca also stated that he could identify the man positively and knew Baca to be the man at the head of the gang. According, to this and other testimony Baca has been at the head of an outlaw gang for several years and had operated on both sides of the river. He wa3 wanted in different parts of Mexico for all kinds of crimes. The defense, on the contrary, intro duced testimony to the effect that Baca was at a small settlement near Shafter. Texas, all the summer and did not leave that settlemnt at all. It was stated that he was at work on a farm and slept at the same house every night during tho month of June in which the crime was committed. Another witness was' called in from somewhere near Chihuahua and iden tified Baca as the man who has been I I r y -a m I II I i 1 1 t LCCi.rll V ' .

At 2 o'clock this afternoon the case was continued until Monday when the testimony of tho defendant will be heard. After finishing the testimony several exceptions will have to be heard and tho probabilities are that the decision will not be rendered before de within 150 miles of the proposed line the result has been disastrous to those who have undertaken it. At Chispa. within 100 miles of the road, over $$00,000 was spent, and the shaft have all been abandoned and the rails of the railroad track which was built have been torn up. On this side of the river in the state of Chihuahua much money has been spent in prospecting for coal with equally disastrous re sults. "I predict, however, that there will be large oil wells discovered and de veloped in Texas, within 300 miles of the Rio Grande and firmly believe that when Mr. Stillwell realizes the extent and possibilities of the great immense tracts o foil lands there, he will change the course of his road to reach it or will at least build a branch road to it. This oil is not of the quality of the oil found in Ohio and the other eastern states, which is used for lighting, but lt is identical with the fuel oil found in California. "The Stillwell road will undoubted ly pass through a section rich in min eral. There are evidences of copper, lead, gold and silver in great abund ance. Turquoise is found on both sides of the Rio Grande, in Texas and In Mexico, but in no place in quantities sufficiently large to warrant extensive development." TRAVEL WILL BE HEAVIER R. S. Hair, an excursion agent who takes people from the central to the western states, starting at Chicago, ever the Rock Island and landing in San Francisco over the Southern Pa The chief engineer and two directors of the Santa Fe. Albuquerque & Pacific railroad company, are in Albuquerque making arrangements for surveying the route over which the proposed road will pass. In the Tijeras canon several miles of surveying has already been done and workmen are now employed blasting out rock for the roadbed at that place. It is expected that the sur vey will be complete within sixty days. Have you tasted the mesa water that the G. H. is bringing down from their wells near Ft. Bliss? It is good, the best water that exists in the south west. It tastes like the water you used to drink before you came to the arid west. He who works in the yards of the G. H. is thrice fortunate. He has work, he has a good company for which to work and the best water in the country to drink while at work. A slight wreck occurred on the S. P. just this side of Acacia early this morning. A broken flange on a freight car wheel caused the car to leave the track. The derrick was taken out and in a short time the wrecking crew, un der Grandpa Bercharding. had tbe car replaced on the track and a new wheel put in instead of the troublesome one. Three freight trains were held the oth- The Light Company Vindicated. The jury in the Ijagerfelt damage suit against the old electric light com pany rendered its verdict last evening in favor of the defendant. It is understood that on the first bal lot the jury was well divided and it was the general belief that the light company should be compelled to pay for the damage done by the live fallen wire. Those who favored the ligat com pany. Wehner. et al seemed to be in the majority and after belg out several hours a verdict was reached and ren dered accordingly. D. Lagerfelt instituted the suit for damages against the light company because of injuries received by his chil dren who took hold of a wire dangling along the street and were violently shocked thereby. The company con tended that it had nothing to do what ever with the liveness of this wire and was not guilty of negligence. Jail Library. Mrs. Minnie Barber, who is collect ing a library for the county jail, re ports that she Is collecting a great many books this week since the notice went to the public and hopes to get up a good colletion. The jailor has prom ised to take good care of them and the city has presented her with a large case which will be kept in the jail. The move Is a worthy one and Mrs. Barber hopes that every one who can contribute books or magazines will phone her no 624 or addess a card to P. O. box No. 457. She is thoroughly resposible and is in a good cause that has been neglected for a long time. Sued in Juarez Ihere is a suit in the civil court in Juarez against Thos. E.

To "Link and Pin" he said: "Commencing next Tuesday all the roads running from the central states westward will put on homeseeker's rates, of one fare plus $2 for the round trip, every Tuesday. Then the tour ist travel westward will be heavier than ever. I have a light load now, because the people of the central states know that this cheaper rate Is going to commence soon and they are all waiting for it. Every indication points to a nexceedingly heavy travel west ward as soon as this rate commences. "The travel into Oklahoma over the Rock Island at present is enormous. .The Rock Island is the only road which traverses the section of that territory soon to be opened and that road is bringing people into that section by the hundreds. "That Rock Island extension to El Paso is going to be a great thing. It will be the shortest route to the south west and Mexico possible. I was talk ing to the Rock Island people in the general offices in Chicago just before I left for this trip apd was told that in one place the extension will run 150 miles as straight as a line can be drawn. The general direction of the extension is almost a straight line from Chicago to El Paso and of course EASTERN NEWSPAPER MEN TOURING IN THE WEST. Stoy In El Paso and May Write Up the Town, C. F.
