One of the prisoners at the county
jail, who was locked up on the re
quest of relatives to give him a chance
to sober up. was examined this morn
inb gy Dr. Vilas for the purpose of as
certaining if his release from custody
would be advisable. A relative of the
prisoner was present when the examin
ation took place.
The general public has little idea of
the number of men who are locked up
in the various prisons from time to
time in an endeavor to reform them.
Very often liquor attains such a mas
tery over a man that he is utterly un
able to let it alone and his sprees last
for weeks. At such times he is as
helpless as a child and his family and
friends are unable to arouse his
broken will power or prevent him
from imbibing until the fit wears off.
Many times have such men been lock
ed up by authority from relatives, and
sometimes at their own request to get
the iron bars between them and the
liquor houses. Only in this way can
they be prevented from continuing
their debauch and such treatment of
ten proves a blessing to them and their
families, for after undergoing treat
ment they emerge from prison with
their will power regained, their minds
clear and their nerves strengthened
and are in a condition to fight against
temptation. The same method Is often
practiced with the morphine eater.
Young Girl Brought Back from Juarez,
Some excitement was created In po
lice circles last night when the parents
of a thirteen year old girl reported that
he had been decoyed across the river
by anothr girl.
Officer Joe Blanchard was detailed
on the case and at 10:30 o'clock after
making the rounds, located the young
r-trl and her companion, a girl of four
teen at a loddne house In Juarez, the
proprietor of which was a Chinaman.
The officer telephoned Captain Ten
Eyck to come to Juarez at once and
together they entered the rooms oc
cupied by the runaway girls. They
The girls were in a defiant frame of
mind and refused to leave the place.
The officers being beyond their juris
diction were powerless to compel them
to return to this side of the liver, but
they called on the Juarez police for
assistance and the Mexican officers af
ter investigating the case locked the
girls up in a room at the lodging house
and hald them until today when they
were returned to their parents on this
side of the river.
It is said that the girl of 13. whose
parents were so anxious to find her last
night, had been keeping company with
the elder girl who was inclined to be
wild, and the elder had persuaded her
to leave home just to have a good time.
Train Robbers on Trial.
The thre alleged train robbers, who
are said to have looted a box car east
of the city, tossing off a lot of mis
cellaneous merchandise at Concordia
and concealing it there, until it was
discovered by George Harold, were giv
en a hearing before Justice Spencer
at - o'clock this afternoon.
It was believed that the-three men
in custody were the ringleaders of the
eanm that has been raiding so many
frox-ht cars in the vicinity of this city ;
recently, and the railway company suffered heavy losses Sunday night by
will make every effort to bring about the burning of Aggie Smith's house at
o rnHrtinn that it may serve as a ,
warning to evil doers
Popular Railroad Men Attending Court.
A number of popular railroad men
are in the city from along the Southern
Pacific out west attending court.
Among them are George. Stilwell, en
gineer; George McMullen. conductor;
Nellie" Bly. conductor, all of the El
Paso division, and Roadmaster Mur
To Celebrate San Jacinto Day.
Preparations are under way for a big
celebration here on San Jacinto Day,
April 21, in honr of the entry of the
Katy railroad, which will run its first
passenger train to this city on that
date. The long talked of Sunset-Katy
Aransas Pass union depot, which was
to have bene completed by the date of
the arrival of the former, is still a de
pot on paper only. The Sunset has
purchased and cleared the site on East
Commerce street and has prepared the
plans for a fine brick building, but its
commencement is hanging fire and of
late the delay is said to be due to a
provision in the deed to the depot site,
which stipulates that the depot must be
mainetained on it or same shall revert
to the donors. This is not official, but
seems plausible and comes from a man
who is in position to know.
More New Street Cars.
Col. E. H. Jenkins, president of the
San Antonio Traction company, ac
companied by his transportation su
perintendent, T. C. Brown, left for the
north and east today to purchase fif
teen more new cars for use in San An
tonio. This will make thirty-one new
cars which he as purchased within a
year, in addition to the fifteen fine ones
built in the company's own shops in
this city. The shops are being equip
ped with the very latest machinery and
all the cars in future will be made here.
The colonel is also tearing down the
old car sheds and building a new one
covering six tracks and extending over
an entire block. Near the sheds he is
constructing a reading room and bath
house for his men, the reading matter
to be supplied free by the company. A
man will have charge of the place and
in return for his services will be allow
ed to sel! lunches, tobacco, fruits, no
tions, etc., tc the men who care to buy.
The reading room and bath privileges
will be free to all employes or the con

the best departments in the state. The

the chief, W. G. Vobin, is a man of
morning. The first one he saw was
J. A. Eddy, president of the Miners'
association. In response to the report
er's enquiries. Mr. Eddy said:
"Individually I am in favor of such
an exhibition. It would be a great ad
vertisement for this section of the
country and no doubt would have
beneficial effect. Speaking however,
as an officer of the Miners' association
I am decidedly opposed to using any of
the funds of this organization for that
purpose. The association is very
young and is not yet so firmly on its
feet as to be able to assist in the pro
"Every cooperation that it can give
toward making the exhibit a thor
oughly representative one will, I know,
be cheerfully given. The association
will meet tomorrow and I think this
matter will come before the members
for decision at that time."
D. W. Reckhart said: "Yes indeed
I am decidedly in favor of sending an
exhibit to the exposition. There is no
doubt whatever that we could put up
one of the best In the country with
Prof. Carrera's collection as a nucleus.
And I want to add that if such an ex
hibit goes to Buffalo Prof. Carrera
should be selected to represent it for
the reason that it would be difficult to
find a man better posted on minerology
generally and of this region particu
larly than he. As to the question of
finances. I believe the mining men of
this district would willingly contrib
ute to the cause. I have heard the
matter largely discussed and I know
they would like to have an exhibit sent
to Buffalo. Personally I will do all
can to aid in the work."
Mr. Griffith, a member of the An
derson Investment company, also stat
ed that he was strongly in favor of the
exhibit and believed that most of the
mining men would cheerfully give it
their aid and support.
