EL PASO DAILY HERALD,. WEDNESDAY, FtBRUARY 6, 1901. AND J-"IN. Link CAUSE FOR' SORROW. The G. H. shop and round house men are sad. When asked for news about all the answer they give is that they are sorry Munn is going to leave. Munn is the roundhouse foreman. Alexan der N. Munn has been foreman of the G. H. round house for the past five years and is one of the most popular men in the service of the company at this place. Mr. Munn will resign about the 15th and ro to Globe; Ariz., to assume the duties of master 'mechanic of the old Dominion Copper company. T. H. Tracy, who has been filling that posi tion for the past year, has resigned it to come to El Paso, where he has a position with the Mine and Smelter Supply company. Mr. Tracey is well known and popular in El Paso and his return gladdens many hearts. He was president of the Pass City foun dry at this place for a year previous to his going to Globe. He will accora pany Mr. Munn to Globe and initiate him into his new work. "I am awful sorry to see Munn go, said a fellow foreman at the shops "and the company will lose a good man when he goes, too." He spoke the sentiments of every man in the shops for they all like Munn and are sorry to see him go. MACHINISTS GO HUNTING. A party of G. H. machinists, consist ing of Bob Sykes, John Scott, -4 Rod Moore. Bert Sherwood. Jim Gooch and Tom Williams, drove up to Canutillo Saturday night ' on a bunting expedi tion. This sextet of skillful worxmen should be ashamed of themselves for the awful slaughter of animals which they perpetrated. They killed six rab bits, one quail and one woodpecker. One of the party says that Bob Sykes's gun got tired waiting for him to find something to shoot at and just went off on its own hook. For a wonder there was no one in front of it. Sykes's timidness probably kept him from shooting at anything, for coming back he and Rod Moore walked over that big hill because they were afraid to stay in the wagon whils it was going over. WHITE OAKS AND ROCK ISLAND. Workmen are busily engaged remod eling the White Oaks and Rock Island office today preparatory to the opening of the freight and passenger offices of the two companies. Mr. Brasted hopes to have the office ready for occupancy when he returns from Denver that he will be able to open the office and begin, hustling bus iness for his company. He will go to Denver in a few days to bring his family here and will be here regularly after that date. He thinks now that the company will , have another traveling man . and one clerk in the office from the time it opens and will possible have 'more men here after the road reaches this city. long time to see if he can find this rec ord of "long time between drinks beaten. SAFES FOR PULLMANS. Safes for Pullman sleeping cars are said to be under contemplation by the Pullman company. The purpose of the safes is to furnish a place where the passengers may deposit their money and valuables upon retiring, similar to the hotel plan. Statistics show, how ever, that Pullman passengers, as a rule, do not carry much money or val uables when traveling. This fact is at tested by a recent western holdup where the robbers got $75 from the Pullman passengers, $250 from the day coach and $310 from a tramp machin ist who was stealing a ride on the blind baggage. CAN DO WITHOUT WATER. It is said that a large freight engine on the Iowa division of the Chicago tc. Northwestern makes the run be tween Clinton and Boone every day, a distance of over 200 miles, without taking water. The engineer is named Outwater and of course the engine has to make the trip withOutwater.but still make the trip with Outwater, but still the statement is not meant for a joke and the engineer has been looking a SPARKS FROM THE ENGINE. Fireman S. H. Rogers, of the S. P., reported sick yesterday morning. Engineer Ed Love, of the S. P.. has been off sick duty since yesterday morning. Joe Riley, the tool room boy at the G.

Against Class Legislation. President Freuder.thai thn read a letter from the president of the Texas I Wholesale Grocers' association asking that the chamber of commerce pass a resolution and forward to the El Paso representatives protesting against the bill now pending in the state legisla ture forcing all suits to be filed in the county whore the defendant lived. It was explained that this would cause wholesale men much inconvenience and injustice and was clearly class leg islation. President Froutlepthal and Secretary Russell were authorized to reply favor ably. Tie Railroad Commission. BARBARA'S ESCAPE. j& A letter was also read from the Dal las Commercial club asking that El Pa so support an amendment to the state railroad commission law now before the legislature, which provides that railroads be allowed to haul freight Rta lower rate than fiexd by the com mission. Especially would this apply In cases of the products of factories of Texas. It was explained that the com mission now fixed all ratc-s and the railroads could not haul freight at a lower rjte than that fixed by the com mission. The chamber decided that the law was a good one and instructed the president to write to Senator Tur- ney and Representative Bridgers and ask their support to the amendment Favored New Tax Bill. i'resident Kreudenthal read a com munication irom tne business men s club at San Antonio asking support of the bill now before the legislature pro viding that all factories be exempt from state taxes for ten years and all cities and counties be allowed to ex empt the min case they wished to. Some discussion followed this mat ter but it was unanimously decided that the law was a good one. It was decided however, that Senator Turney I- - - I ! 1 - M "I I' !! man of the G.

He came in to attend the bedside of his father, who died Saturday, and remained until after the funeral. Emil Morsheim, attorney for the G. H. at Seguin, Texas, and his wife, who have been in El Paso several days en joying the excellent climate, left this morning for a few days trip into Ari zona where Mr. Morsheim will examine properties. The rush of business on the S. P. lines is felt in the car shops at this place and a full force is kept busy night and day although but few wrecks have occurred lately. The rush is the result of an extra number of cars Want the Cattle Convention. Secretary Russell stated to the loard that several local cattle men had asked that the chamber of commerce invite the Texas cattlemen to hold their next annual convention in El Paso. He thought that the convention was an important thing and as the next con vention meets in Fort Worth about the 12th of this month the chamber should take the matter up now. Inquiries . were made as to what it would cost to entertain the cattlemen and it was decided that the convention would be worth ten times the cost of the entertainment and El Paso should secure it if possible. The chances are good as EI Paso being used and consequently a number I won the friendship of all the cattlemen or. small DreaKs occur. who were here to attend the late car nival and every one would help to bring it here. El Paso has never had a convention of this character and it was decided that it could be brought here with little expense.

Relative to the proposed state ex hibit at the Pan-American exposition Secretary Russell received a letter this morning from Secretary Tom Rich ardson of the Houston Business League stating that the extended letter from Mr. Richardson, printed in The Herald Dr. H. S. Gray of San Francisco, col- I yesterday was printed in the Houston onization agent for the Southern Pa cific, came in from the west last night and will go down into Mexico on busi ness connected with his position.

MINING INTERESTS TO BE ADVERTISED AT THE EXPOSITION. Chamber of Commerce Unanimous in Declaring that Much Good Would Result From Mineral Exhibit at Buffalo. The mining interests of El Paso and icinity will be advertised with a big display at the Pan-American exposition at Buffalo this summer. This matter has bene settled in the Binds of the mining men. members of the Southwest International Miners' association and the chamber of com merce. The board of directors of the cham ber of commerce met last night for the purpose of discussing this matter and it was the unanimous verdict that the exhibit would do endless good and that we must have it. The mining associ ation, through its directors met yes terday and inaugurated the move, a.? told in yesterday's Herald, and last night asked the chamber of commerce to endorse the movement. At first the chamber of commerce understood that the mining association wanted the chamber of commerce to father the movement and no end o discussion followed. It was unanimously agreed that it was the thing to do bu the mem bers were afraid that the chamber had ben in too many things of this kind and could not manage it success fully. A. W. Gifford explained, however, that the mining association was going to father the project and only wanted the chamber of commerce to endorse the idea collectively and contribute funds individually. He said that many deals had already bene made as the result of the exhibit kept open in the chamber of commerce rooms and to have an exhibit at Buffelo would mean to bring many hundreds of investors and speculators here. He thought the money could be easily raised and of fered his services in this part of the he should take charge of the negotia tions from this time on. This will relieve President Freuden- thal and Secretary Russell from the necessity of taking further action ex cept as representatives of the El Paso chamber of commerce. Should the state send an exhibit to Buffalo. El Paso will doubtless do her part, but in any event the Southwest International Miners' association will work Ha thmiirht it would reniilrn about $7,500 to get up the exhibit and go ahead with its plans for sending a taketo Erf I mitfw Jfer ber saTe ment. Buffalo but the money could easily and must be done. member of the executive com- ede with bim and th cham- the matter a hearty en dorse- asking that the soliciting com mittee call on every member of the chamber of commerce for contributions. The following resolution was then unanimously endorsed: "Resolved, That this board heartily endorses the project of the South western International Mining associa tion for sending to tne Pan-American exposition an exhibit of the mineral resources of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico, and we recognize the great value of such an exhibit as a means of furthering the development of the resources of the southwest and urge a liberal financial support of the project," The State Exhibit President Freudenlhal read a letter from the Houston beard of trado ask ing the El Paso organization to join in getting up an exhibit to be sent by the state to Buffalo. Mr. Freudenthal stated that he did not think that El Paso could profit much by this since the mining association was going to send an exhibit to display everything of interest to EI Paso. Other members coincided with his opinion and the unanimous decision was to drop the state matter. Secretary Russell suggested that it be done mildly and with regrets, ex plaining that as no other cities were takingan interest in the matter except mineral exhibit independent of any ac tion which other associations may take THE PAPER WEDDING. Henry Millbrook's engagement to Bar bara Esmond, the heiress, was the theme of general club comment and congratula tion. I lis friend Mr. Piercy wished she h.nl a sister with half the money as Mill brook sauntered away to get his picture taken for Ins ladylove. Sijnor Fernelli, the artist, was at home and very glad to receive Mr. Mil I brook's order. Aa Millbrook sat waiting for Signor rernelli to bring out some specimens of his art he saw through the open door a dark silk dress brush by and the pure, clear profile of a face that he well knew Barbara Esmond's face. "Hello!" ejaculated our hero. "Fer nelli, who the deuce is that young lady. and bow came she here? "It is the music mistress of Pauline Delatour up stairs. She comes twice of the week and sings, my word, like f nightingale." "Who is Pauline Delatour?" -A poor girl, signer, who sews on dresses, but one day she will come out on the stage she will sing at the opera." Harry. Millbrook stared at Signor Fer- elli like one demented. "Which size did you say, sir?" "I I don't think I'll make a selection today. I will call tomorrow." And Mr. Millbrook rushed headlong down stairs, greatly to the surprise of bignor Fernelli. "The deuce!" he ejaculated to himself as he strode along the narrow street, with difficulty restraining himself from tumbling at every other step over the babies who swarmed in the gutters. "A music mistress! Giving lessons in such a hole as that! Upon my word, I've come preciously near being taken in and done for!" He lifted his hat and wiped the chill beads of perspiration from his forehead Barbara Esmond bad fluttered lightly up the narrow staircase, all unconscious of the eyes that were noting her through bignor I- ernelli s partially opened door, and entered a small room in the story above. A pale yonng girl, with a sweet. spirituelle face, sat at her sewing by the window. She brightened up as the deli cate figure came in.

I am but following out a pet whim." The lesson was longer than usual that day. Pauline and Misa Esmond were both deeply interested, and it was nearly twilight before Barbara emerged from the house, closely veiled, and walked swiftly through the darkening streets. "There's a note for you. Miss Bar bara." saiil her housekeeper, as she sat down to rest a minute or two in the re ception room of her own mansion before sue laid off ber thine. A note?

Therefore t shall take it for cranted that all relations are ended between yourself and yours, very respectfully, H. M I IX brook. Barbara dropped the insulting letter. with a sparkle in her black eyes, a curve to her lip. which were wondrously elo quent. 'The puppy! she muttered between her set teeth. "The miserable poltroon! How could I ever have fancied for a sin- pie second that I loved him? Reply to this letter! Of course I shall not reply to it!" And Miss Esmond walked up stairs. carrying her head high in the air, far. far beyoud the reach of Harry Mill- brook's petty spite. That young man was ' seated at his breakfast table next morning when Ru- fus Ken ward lounged in. 'Hello. Millbrook! I've just heard a little item about your ladylove. Miss Es mond, that is to my mind better than all her IximJs and mortgages. What do you hink? She s giving singing lessons to my wife's little seamstress, one Pauline Ielatonr. because the child has a glorious voice and can't afford to have it cultivat ed. Really, it isn't often that an heiress like old Esmond's daughter stoops to per forin so toiling a benefit as that." Harry Millbrotrk had set down his chocolate cup urn! was staring with glassy eyes at Mr. Ken ward. Why, what's the matter?" demanded that gentleman somewhat shortly. "N-nothing. ' "Dyspepsia, eh?" "No. 1 tell you I'm well enough." Harry had made a mistake a mistake that was likely to be fatal to his brilliant matrimonial aspirations. "Why didn't I wait? What the mis chief was I in such a hurry for?" he de manded of himself, without any very satisfactory answer, as lie hurried along the street toward Barbara's residence. The boy might not hnve delivered the note Barbara might not hav rend it there were a thousand "might nots." aad he resolved to try bis luck, even in a for lorn hope. "Is Miss Esmoud at home?" he asked of the old housekeeper who ennie to the door. "Miss Esmond wished me to say spe cially that she was never at home to Mr. Millbrook any more." was the cold reply. And thus Barbara escaped the anares laid for her. Exchange. TEXAS apj PACIf0 Leave 81 Paso Daily 6:50 A. M., Gty Time. Solid Vestlbuled Train Throughout. Latest Pattern Pallman Bnffet Sleepers.

One very creat drawback to Rood arehitecture is in the defective educa tion of man of our architects. Some of them have never learned to think in the terms of their material. "Iesij;u" is the divinity of the pravtitioner: "rendering" the fetich nf the student. The sketch is essentially til the bottom of the activity of either. Hut good architecture rests on a basis of logic. It calls for straight thinking applied to materials and carried on in materials. Hut these, by reason of new scientific discoveries and new me chanical appliances, become yearly more discordant and incongruous, and the log ical defects that have been apparent ever since architecture ccas-d to be a living art 40( years ago are daily growing great er still.
