I ' .' ' SAFETY APPLIANCE INSPECTOR. George V. Martin, inspector of safety appliances for the Interstate Commerce Commission, will leave tonight for Al buquerque after spending a wee ft in El Paso inspecting the automatic couplers and power brakes on the cars of the railroads entering El Paso. Mr. Martin says he found the safety appliances on the cars here in appar ently good shape and that an effort was being made by the local officials at this place to comply with the law in every respect. He also says that he was shown much courtesy and given good treatment by the officials. The position of safety appliance in spector was created directly after the safety appliance act passed by congress became fully effective, which was on August 1. 1900. The law was passed in March. 1893. but owing to the difficulty in exchanging the old appliances for the new the railroads were given a few years time in which to make them. When the first time set for the law to become effective was drawing near it was seen that it would be impossible for the railroads to get the changes ma.de. hence the time was extended; again it was sene that time enough had not been given and again the time was extended, this time until last August, when the law became fully effective. Then it was seen by the Interstate Commerce Commission that it would be to the best interest of the commission and the public at large to employ com petent men to make it their business to inspect the cars of all railroads com ing under the safely appliance act. with a view to ascertaining to what extent the safety appliances were being used. The act covers all railroads engaged in handling interstate commerce and this includes all roads with any exten sive mileage .and only exempts a few private corporation roads. The duties of the inspector are to inspect cars of - all the roads covered by the act and are strictly educational, with a view to as sisting yard foremen, chief of car de partments, etc.. In seeing that the ap pliances used comply with the law. Though still a young man. Mr. Mar tin lias been railroading many years and has watched the change from the old system of coupling and braking to the new. and is thoroughly competent to fill the position of Inspector of the new appliances. For ten years he was "The Best is lone too Gooi This applies to our "BLUE RIBBON" TEAS. Packed expressly for our trade. 75c per pound. "Club House Vi. & J. Coffee, 90c per 2lb tin.

Jater he came to the southwest and .went to work for the S. P. at Tucson, running both ways out of that place. -He remained with the S. P. for ovor twj years and became popular both in and out of railroad circles. From the employ of the S. P. he went to the Northern Pacific in Montana and remained with that company until he received the position he is now so ably filling. There are several of these inspectors, but none have special territory. The entire United States is the territory of each, and they are subject to the or ders of the secretary of the Interstate Commerce Commission, which official Is chief of the inspectors, and to him the reports of all inspectors are made. WABASH OFFICIAL CAR. The Wabash official car. Illinois. came in on the T. & P. last night and left for California over the S. P. on the delayed passenger train this afternoon. This car is one of the finest ever seen in the southwest. The car is occupied by Col. S. C. Rey nolds and party. Col. Reynolds is a director of the Wabash road and a banker of Toledo. Ohio. He is accom panied by his wife, his niece. Miss An na Reynolds. Mrs. Mary E. Nearlng. a friend of the colonel and wife, and a maid. The party is out for pleasure and will spend about four months in the west and then return over the Union Pacific. Most of their visit to-the west will be spent at different points in Cal ifornia. Col. Reynolds is a dignified, silver- haired, pleasant old gentleman: the kind of man a newspaper man enjoys an interview with. The title. "Colonel" fits-him like a sombrero does a cabal lero.

The incoming G. H. passenger train due here at 7:40 this morning was five hours late. The train was an extra long, heavily loaded one and it was al reacixi a little late when it got to San derson. The engine that was hooked on at that place was attacked with leekiness in a flue and. though it did not die for some time it was so sick that it could not travel anything like on scedule time. An engine was sent from here and met the train at San Elizario where the leaky engine had died. The S.-P. passenger train was held for it and went out at 1:15 consisting of twelve well loaded cars. FOUR TOURIST CARS. There were four tourist cars on the west bound passenger train that went out over the S. P. this afternoon. One of them came in from Chicago last night over the T. & P.

P.. has posted in the offices of that division the fol lowing bulletin to trainmen: "On account of the unusual number of seals being broken and cars robbed at this time, you are directed to be as watchful as possible in the protection of your trains from such misdemean ors. Keep your trains under constant watch where atops are made at night. In one case a train was hauled into a terminal with the seals broken on two cars, one of which was left with the door open, with evidence of an ex tensive robbery of dry goods, boots, shoes, etc. Such results mark a lack of vigilance on the part of train crews. ? 55 I Reports of broken seals and robberies are coming in almost daily."

Pearce Has Some Interesting Stories to Tell of the Country About Tombstone. S- L. Pearce. who is well known in El Paso, returned last night from his mining property at Cochise. Arizona. He has just installed on his claim a stamp mill of ten stamps with a ca pacity for handling from 35 to 40 tons of ore a day. The property has been worked by former owners in a desul tory fashion but Mr. Pearce is now preparing to develop the mine npon a systematic scale. He is quite enthus iastic over that section of the countrv and predicts a big success for it. "There are fifteen paying mines in that one district alone." he said. "They are all shippers of good pay ore. prin cipally copper and gold. All this ore comes to El Paso and the development of that country means that much ben efit to the smelter and niiuing inter ests here. "On my way here I met a great num ber of miners going into Turquoise. which lies between Pearce and Tomb stone. From them I learned that a man by the name of Abbett. an assay er in that section, had made a strike a few days ago that had created an intense excitement throughout that district. While he and his partner were working on their claim they sud denly ran Into ore that on assay ran $50,000 to the ton. That, of course would mean nearly native gold. I was not able to learn the details as to whether it was a pocket, a streak or vein, or in fact anything more than that they had struck ore of that value. The men I met were all going in and none were coming out." Mr. Pearce also informed the report er that a man by the name of Si Bryan living at Turquoise had sold his mine. a copper proposition, for the sum of $30,000 to the Turquoise Copper Mining company they having had a bond and lease on it. Mr. Pearce also has mining interests in Chihuahua and leave for that state today. QUESTION ANSWERED. Tea, August Flower still has th largest sale of any medleine in the civ ilized world.

Freeman the woman im prisoned at the county jail on the charge of bringing stolen property into the state from New Mexico, was be fore Judge Walthall this morning on a writ of habeas corpus. She alleged that her physical condi tion is such that to longer remain in jail would be detrimental to her health and asked the court to reduce her bot.M or order her discharge. Judge Uvalde Burns represented the defendant. After hearing the woman's state ment Judge Walthall ordered that her bail be fixed at $200! Mrs. Freeman was the only person who testified during the proceedings. She took the stand and told a pathetic tale in a plaintive voice of her arreSt and imprisonment. She said she had been stopping In the county jail about three weeks just prior to her nrrest and just after she filed suit against the Santa Fe for al leged personal damages, she had met Ben Williams, the Santa Fe detective at his hotel and he had told her that he would not arrest her if she would withdraw her suit against the railway company. Prior to that time she said she had' been under the treatment of physicians for injured eyes and had" entirely lost the sight of one eye and the other was impaired. Her hand was also partially paralyzed and she was suffering from nervous prostration. "Insist nielit." she said. "I was placed in a cell at the jail and the bed I had been occupying was given to a special detective." "Have you any influential friends here. Mrs. Freeman, who would sign as sureties for. vou to the amount of $500?" asked Judge Burns. "T have none at all around here." replied the prisoner. She explained that before she filed her suit and while ill in EI Paso the railway officials wanted her to sign a paper not to bring suit against the Santa Fe for injuries received when the depot burned, but she refused to do so and under no other- conditions would they qdmit her to the railway hospital, although they had insisted on sending her there. District Attorney Dean explained that the evidence of Mrs. Freeman's physicians should have been introduced to show that longer confinement in the jail was Injurious to her. The court asked counsel for defend ant if he thought his client could make bond for $200 and Judge Burns replied that he thought she could, as certain persons might le induced to sign through motives of sympathy. .Iiidare Walthall thereupon fixed her bond at $200. Mrs. Freeman succeeded in making bond this afternoon and was released. :uk.j-:..:::-:...:::..:..::. . v. I HEARD IN 1 I HOTEL LOBBIES I ....,.".............. C. M. Williams of Colorado Springs is a guest at the Sheldon hotel. He is a member of the firm of Thurlow, Hut ton & Williams, well known through out the west as promoters of big copper corporations and investors of large cap ital in various parts of the country. They, and other members of the com pany whom they represent, are the owners of the Franklin Heights ad dition to El Paso, of which A. P. Coles is agent. They also control the Denver- Resurvey addition to Galveston, oper ate mines in Cripple Creek, and have valuable real estate interests in Colo rado Springs. When asked the object of his visit here. Mr. Williams said: "I have just returned from a trip to Chihuahua where I have been looking into some mining propositions, and am stopping in El Paso a day or so before returning home to look into our inter ests here. It is a matter of much grat ification to us to see the manner in which El Paso is growing and Im proving. I have been here several times and every time I come I see some substantial improvement. This Is the only town out of all the places we are interested in where we have never had occasion to foreclose a mortgage. This is about the best indication of a town that I can give. I cannot see what can prevent the continued and rapid growth of this city. The railroads are centering here and opening up a big territory continguous to El Paso. The roads are reaching out and touching the mining districts that surround this place which must inevitably result in a great financial benefit to the people here. Experience has shown that the roads operating in a mining district are the best payers and the place from which they draw their supplies a flour ishing community. They get good rates on the supplies they take into the camps and also on the ore they bring out. I believe that El Paso will be the base of supplies for this immense dis trict of New Mexico, the northern part of old Mexico, and western Texas." In reply to the question as to wheth er his people were contemplating any further investments in El Paso outside of the Franklin Heights. Mr. Williams said: "I don't know that there is anything particularly in contemplation at the present time, hut we are keeping in close touch with EI Paso. Capital will always go where it gives promise of good investment, and. I think El Paso offers that. In my judgment a good deal of capital will lie invested in and around here.' especially in the mining fields. It Is the history of mining camps that when interests become con solidated and the ground pretty well covered as in Cripple Creek, capital seeks a field for investment elsewhere, and this region will attract much of that capital. In short. El Paso is des tined to be a large city and nothing can hold it back." Everybody read The Herald. Every body will read YOUR advertisement if you put it in the "rOPl'LAF.
