EL. PASO DAILY HERALD. MONDAY. APRIL 1. 1901.
PAGE FOUR. Link and Pin. Rock Island and Bisbee Roads Join Hands There will be another great trans continental route and Kl Paso will be atrictly In it. It Ih n combination of the Rock Is l.n.l nml the Phelps-Dodge people. rnrthfliinwnl iii The Herald months HgO. rarun of euKineers are already sur reying an extension of the road from lltabce to Sun Diego. California, aa has before lwen nald In The Herald. The Rock Island will use the Phelps liotlee road from El Paso to Bisbee, and thence over their own tracks to the Pacific coast. This Is now certain, whereas before It has been shrewd guess work. The above Information' comes from an outside source that Is absolutely reliable A few days ago a Herald reporter called on Mr. Wambaugh. chief engin eer of the Phelps-Dodge people, and asked him the question if his company Intended to build Into El Paso. At that time he replied that there was abso lutely nothing new in the situation. He then went on to illustrate to the reporter why his company should not build into Kl Paso. He said: "This is not ; railroad proposition in the ordinary except at Ion of the word. We are not building a road for the purpose of hauling passengers but for our own use in the handling of the pro duct of our mines at Nacosari. There appears to me to be no reason why -we should build a road over 200 miles of track from Nacosari to El Paso at a cost of several million dollars when by the construction of a road from Naco sari to Separ only 98 miles long to a connection with the Southern Pacific we can accomplish the same purpose and save a haul of 122 miles which we have to make at the present time via Bisbee and Benson. "Something has been said about the people of El Paso offering subsidies as an inducement for us to . come in here. Now what subsidy could be of fered us to offcet the expenditure of perhaps three million of dollars? Per sonalis I see no reason whatever for the company to .build a road from Na cosari to El Paso, yet the conditions are changing every day with such kaleidoscopic rapidity I cannot say what will happen. "There is one feature of it that may be taken into consideration however. The Santa Fe and the Southern Pacific work together in the handling of the freight to and through this point. The construction of the Rock Island into El Paso will no doubt cause some changes in rate making. The Rock Island has always been a rate maker and when they come in here there is every probability that they will pur sue the policy they have followed here tofore and make rates which the Santa Fe will have to meet. That fact may. have some bearing upon the question of building our road in here.'" That was the substance of the inter t view with Mr. Wambaugh on Tuesday last. The kaleidoscopic change occur red within the next few days, for it is now announced by the same official of the Phelps-Dodge company that they have decided to build into El Paso and that the secret can not be kept any longer. 1 The explanation of this sudden change of front can no doubt be found in the consummation of a deal between the Rock Island road and the Phelps Dodge company by which the former will use the latter's road in an outlet to the Pacific coast, and the two roads will haVe the same terminals in this city. DON'T CHEW DINERO. "T)o you see that Mexican with a nickel in his mouth?" asked Special Officer Rayner of the S. P.. of "Link and Pin" at the depot this morning, pointing to a fruiet vendor who had a coin between his lipe. "Well, may be after a while he will give that nickel in change to some woman and she will put it into her mouth. "Haven't you -noticed what a habit people have, especially women, of put ting money in their mouth? It is one of the most idiotic and dangerous hab its people have. I have seen it prac ticed about the depot here until I am often tempted to go up and tell women to take the money out of their mouths. But I guess if I were to do that the woman would take it out of her mouth leng enough to tell me it was none of my business and then put it back. "The other day I saw a pretty young voman who was passing on the Limit cu. run in here and make a purchase at the lunch counter. A greasy-looking Mexican had just made a five-cent purchase and left his nickel on the counter. The young lady made a five- PRICE BROTHERS, GROCERS, 105 El Paso Street. Phone 353. cent purchase and gave a dime. The Mexican's nickel was given her for change and she placed it between her lips until she could open her purse. And that is the way it goes. She may have known that the coin was laid uown there by the Mexican, but her 1-abit of putting money in her mouth was so stroug that she couldn't have helped putting that one there, no mat ter if she did shudder at the thought afterward. "Doctors say that disease microbes etc transferred by this method and if there Is any truth in the transfer of i-ilcrohcs by any method I do not know of any better way than this to transfer tnctn. and every person should break themselves of the habit." CUTTING DOWN FREE LIST. When" President Hays was on ' his vay to San Francisco to assume the duties of his present high office he st. id in an interview that during the time he was president of the Southern Pacific the com puny would be out of olitics. Judging fro mart ions he has taken now it seems that he is already commencing to make good the state ment. ' The first step in this direction which Mr. Hays took was to secure a list of all the politicians who were riding over the S. P. on free passes. He found hun dreds of annuals extant and he at once notified their holders that they would be honored until the last day of Feb ruary. On that date he called them all in. and although he has been besieged by applications for renewals, he has turned down about 90 per cent of them. He has also stated that he has renew ed all that he intends to. The passes which have been renewed h.ive been signed by President Hays himslf. and his office has also taken in hand the Issuance of trip passes. The number of trip passes is said to have fallen oft about 85 per cent since he took hold of the office. No wonder t.'iere is weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth among the ranks of those who used to ride for nothing. BLACKSMITH SHOP CHANGES. As reported Saturday, two helpers in the G. H. blacksmith shop resigned their positions Saturday to go to other places. They are Wallace Grantham and Martin Arrey.' Two men went to vork this morning, but not exactly In the places made vacant.

Hudepohl at the big fire as assistant to Foreman Lucas and Mr. Hudepohl takes the position of en gineer and assistant at the tool Are, piade vacant by Mr. Grantham. S. P. Reeves is the other new helper and works at the tool fire. J. T. Kane worked last for the Santa Fe In the Raton shops. S. P. Reeves has worked in the T. & P. shops in this city about a year.. AN HONORED ENGINE. ' Engine M of the E. P. & N. E. has received the honor of being the first engine to bear the name of the new line, the El Paso-Rock Island. The en gine has just come out of the Alamo- gordo shops where it was given a gen eral overhauling and the new name painted on it. It brought down an ex tra train of twenty-five steel cars of coal yesterday and returned northward with another extra this morning. En gineer Cody and Fireman Smith were in the cab of the honored engine when it came down on its first run under the new name and the train crew con sisted of Conductor Graham and Brake man Hunter and Bishop. They all feel honored by being Interested in the first run of the engine as an El Paso-Rock Island engine. THE BROOKLYN'S ANCHOR. Two Interesting cargoes that pass ed through over S. P. lines a few days ago were the anchor of the cruiser rBooklyn and the chains that will attach it to the ship. The anchor Is said to be an entirely new pattern, nnlike any anchor ever made before and being made effective for holding a ship is not necessarily as large as the ordinary anchor. How ever It was quite a large piece of iron. The chains are made of huge links, about sixteen Inches In length, made of rods two inches in diameter. The anchor passed through a few days be fore the chains. MORE CONSTRUCTION OUTFITS. Good & Company, the contractors who are constructing the E. P. & N. E. extension, sent out three cars of la borers, horses and wagons to work on the extension this morning. The con tractors are using the observation cars of the Alamogordo & Sacramento Mountain road in which to transfer la borers to the scene of construction. One of these cars went out on the E P. & N. E. this morning. GOOD NEWS FROM GLOBE. J. W. Lucas, foreman of the G. H. blacksmith shopp. has received word from his son, Frank N. Lucas, who used to work in the G. H. machine shop In this city, that he has secured a remunerative position in the shons WHEN PREPARING YOUR BREAKFAST, some morning we would like to have you try White Swan flour for rolls or biscuits, also our breakfast foods which are nour ishing try them at once, do not wait the best time to test them is right now, and you can enjoy many appetizing breakfasts dur ing the spring. t v !

Mahl. chief engineer in the maintenance of way department of the Southern Pacific, with headquarters at Houston, died at Spartansburg. S. C. Saturday, while en route to New York citv with his mother. Mrs. William Mahl. Mr. Mahl hua been in bad health for some time and about a month ago he pttssed through El Paso on his way to 1'hoenlx: Arizona, being with Presi dent Hays's party that passed through from the trip through Mexico. He I malned at Phoenix until the latter part of last week. His health did not im I'l-ove there and his serious condition caused his mother to he telegraphed for and she Joined him in Phoenix about two weeks ago. Finding that to remain there would do him no good he decided to accompany his mother to New York and spend his last days with his parents. Saturday's Herald mentioned his passing through this ily on his way back east. He was not able to stand the trip and died at Spartansburg as above stated. Mr. Mahl had occupied the position In- held at the time of his death for several years and was held In high esteem by the officials or the S. P. sys tem, being regarded by them as one of the most capable men at the head t.f such a department. He was only SO years of age. but had made an excel lent record while engaged In railroad work. His father. William Mahl. is assist ant to the president of the Southern Pacific company and resides in New York. Mr. Mahl was a widower, his wife l aving been dead some time, and he leaves a little daughter. It is not known yet whether the fun eral will take place In Houston or NewJ ork. DID NOT FOOL THEM. The G. H. pay car was reported due about 12:30 p. m.. but the boys were somewhat afraid that as it is the first of April the car would not come, just for an April Fool. However, the car was not disposed to feci prankish and came In as reported and the boys have their heads set to one side, listening to the jingling of the guinea in their pockets. SPARKS FROM THE ENGINE. Fireman Beavis of the S. P. has been sick several days and Fireman Kin caid is feeding his engine. The passenger trains over S. P. lines this morning were very short. The incoming train on the G. H. had only five cars, and the outgoing on the S. P. had seven. Sam McVey. a machinist helper at the G. H. round house, had his hand so badly scalded with hot water Sat urday that he had to discontinue work the remainder of the day. but is at work again today. He is one of the most popular helpers in the round house. IN EL PA SO (Continued from First Page.) "This terrible mixed up condition of politics and the injury to the city which is sure to ensue, can be laid at the door of only one man. Hia desire to rule or ruin created the present situa tion. He was not willing to see any man or set of men whom he could not control, get into the offices'. Hammett is sure to be elected " Strange Condition. A funny incident was heard in con nection with the election. A ward worker, who has always been quite ef fective and active, said to a reporter: "Cdnfound such an election as this. Here last week they started me out to work for Hammett and I got things in my territory pretty well fixed and then they instruct me to work for Caples. I've been out two days work ing for him and now I find that I can t undo the work I had already done." Bad For Caples. At 3 o'clock this afternoon there is every indication that Hammett has won a sweeping victory. Caples work ers are disheartened and ready to quit. Mortey is being spent like water. Caples men confess that their candi date is beaten and attribute it to the fact that he started too late to over come the opposition. The votes held in reserve by the fac tions at the various corrals are five to one in favor of Hammett. Caples men have about luO men corraled at the "Red Light." Hammett's forces have 300 at Chopin hall. 250 at Alderete's store and 100 at the "Bonanza." Chopin hall is regarded as the best corral in the city. It is close to the court house where the second ward pri maries are to be held tonight and the voters can be readily transferred to the polling place at the proper moment. It is expected that a strong and de termined effort will be made tonight at the second ward polls by Caples men to seize and change Hammett votes after they have been lined up. but a coterie of skilled workers are watching closely for all manner of tricks and any effort at crooked work will be frustrated.
