Eldridge, one of the most prominent mine operators In Mexico and well known in El Paso, has just left for the republic after a brief visit here. Mr. Eldridge Is the owner of the Dos Cabezas mine situated about sixty miles west of Casas Grandes. It is one of the big mines of that region at the present time but with the Improve ments which Mr. Eldridge nas aeciaea to make it will be one of the biggest plants in the state of Sonora. "While here Mr. Eldridge Informed a Herald man that he was making ar rangements to instal on the Dos Cabez as a concentrating plant which will handle 500 tons of ore a day. That would be one of the largest reduction works in the country. The ore he Is getting out at the present time runs as high as $1100 to the ton. Yhere are over 300 miners working on the proper tv at the Dresent time. - Mr. Eldridge Is also Interested with Mr. Harmon of Alamogordo In a large mine at Zacatecas. and while be did not give the reporter any of the details he said that with the development iney proposed to make It would bea whale A Record of Crime (Continued from First Page.) money corresponding with those he se cured from the banks he swindled be fore his capture and punishment. But the bankers of El Paso were too shrewd for him. He was told he woulu have to get an endorsement and he went out and forged the name or a prominent citizen as an endorser. He returned and presented his check with this endorsement, but the bank men said they would send out and see if it was o. k. and while they awaited the coming of the endorser the swindler disappeared as effectually as If the earth had swallowed him up. He was here in February and the same month he showed tip at Ogden. Vtah. where he swindled the Commer cial National bank out of $200 and made good his escape. His next at tempt, was at Albuquerque on March 4 th, last, where he secured $200 and was captured. His name is believed to be Charles B. Hogg, but he seldom uses that name in his workings of the banks. Some of his aliases are Maddox. Thompson.- Mc Donald. Fryer. Wilson and Bentonr It is not yet known what disposition will be made of this smooth criminal, whether he will be tried In New Mexi co or turned over to some of these oth er people who want him. At any rate It is safe to bet that he will not oper ate another forgery for several years to come, for he will be placed where he will not be led into temptation lut will be delivered from evil.

St. Paul and Rock Inland were likewise higher, but not as active as the former. Northern Pacific was also strong In sympathy with the Burlington, and the old rumors in regard to the new rela lions of these two properties were re vived. Under the influence of these storks the general market turned to be stronger, even the smaller issues be ing thereby affected. The announce ment that the secretary of the trasury hart bought about two million bonds of short term In the open market gave a decided impetus and the tone at the close was very strong, and near the best prices of the day.

The case of the United States against Collector Dillon charged with solicit ing and receiving contributions for po litical, purposes, came up for hearing yesterday afternoon. The case was continued on Saturday last in order to get the testimony of D. L. Creswell. Inspector of customs at Deming. The witness, was present and stated that he was present at the meeting which was held on Sunday. February 11. in the collector's ofTlce. His testimony was similar to that already given by the other witnesses with the exception of that in regard to theq uestion of funds being solicited. It was his recollection that it was the collector who first made the suggestion. " On this point, how ever, he was not positive. On cross examination he said that he had never been solicited by the collector and that he had received the notification of the meeting from Bloom or Fink. Mr. Clark, counsel for the defense, merequested that Hr. Bloom be recall ed, the point in question being as to whether Collector Dillon received the $5 from Creswell or not. For this pur pose the hearing was again postponed nutil this afternoon. The case was continued indefinitely this afternoon by' Commissioner Howe and will be taken up by agreement of the district attorney and counsel for the collector. Certain witnesses are required and the time has been extend ed in order to get them. In the Federal Court. The case of George A. Lambeth against the Mexican Central railroad was called for trial this morning in the federal court before Judge Maxey. The plaintiff claims damages in the sum of $23,000 for personal injuries. In his position he alleges that he was em ployed by the company as an engineer; that on March 20th. 1900. while the en gine which he was running was pass ing under a bridge about eight miles south of Juarez, he was leaning out of the cab watching a "hot box" when he was struck on the top of the head by a bolt projecting from a bridge post. He claims that the bridge was improp erly constructed, hence , the suit for damages. MONTICELLO.N.M. Special to The Herald. MONTICELLO. N. M.. April I Weather very cold yet. so farmers are very 6low with their plantations. The wind storms and frost have been so succeeded that no fruit is expected this year that will be a hard blow to sellers' incomes. Pedro Vallejos is having built a new residence in town. John Welty from Red Canon was in town Saturday. The town is as quiet as it can be this time of the year, so it is very hard to find anything to write to The Herald, no matter how much we wish to do it. IISSION MERCHANTS.

It is the most Itcntitiful structure in tin: South, ami the most aU-M'l railr.wid building in the United Stales. It is correct in design : ample i iiroporiions; highly artistic in its 'eci 'rniion-; ingenious in adaptation of rnn-irticiion ; elegant in its appoint reni ; convenient in its arrangements, ind is situated in that part of the city where it stands ahnost alone in its riure!y grandeur and serene lcauty as a pJendid architectural triumph. The style of architecture is what is known as the. Romanesque, which carries with it simplicity, massiveness, and strength. It is Iniilt of the ttcautiful oolitic Bowling Green grey limestone, which gives the exterior a subdued as pect, but with a sugse-tion of durability and strength. It stands four stories in height. The main tower rises in grace ful outlines to the height of 220 feet with a finial of a bronze statue of Mercury, representative of science, commerce, and the arts, as well as the graces of life and the patron of travelers. The clork in this big suare towei. when finished, will 1h- unique in that it will have mov able Mocks to indicate the hour in stead of hands. The main entrance to the building is from Broad Street, which has a space un derneath for a number of parallel rail way tracks. One passes from the pave ment on the viaduct into the loggia or stone porch, which is supported by seven massive stone arches, three in front and two on either side. These arches rise in graceful proportions and are elab orately carved in a delicate tracery of stone "work. The central arch in front is higher and more imposing than the others. The floor is laid with orna mental tiling, and rises in the center by t'.-ur steps to the level of the tloor in the main waiting retort. The ceiling of the loggia i paneled in oak and the roof Is flat. There is a fine sculptured stone entablature near the top. upon which a iras-ive stone balustrade stands that rises nl.ovc ami surrounds the roof lwlcony. The l?ia conn; ft with three. vestibule. iv a trio of heavy archways eorrespond i!Mj in height to the front arches of the !.V?ia. All these arches arc artistically carved and pre-ent the mo-t perfect out lines of 'Romanesque beauty. The im-rior of the main waiting r"Km. by i's imposing Iwauty. excites the most eniii'isiastic admi.ation. The harmony of its proportions leaves in the nind the impressions oi fitness, elegance, nd magnificence. This hall is ioo feet long, 65 feet wide, and 65 feet high. Its ceilm forms one solid arch lighted by a large skylight of ornamental glass in the rM.f. Tennessee marble is u-cd in the wainscoting, with a base of black marble. The wall between the Tennessee marble and the interior corridor, which forms a I rtak in the continuity of the vertical 'iues at the second story, is done in a rich 'live or colonial green, lighted up with il'.c splendor of gola and capped by a cor nice alo decorated with gold. The brackets which apparently support the corridor arc large in size, giving an idea of support and strength and majesty. .lxve the corridor shades of much light er green arc used, tipped with yellow or .name, with brighter golden tints. Higher tip the green fades into a yellow and green, which blend in lieautiful har .liony with the art glass in the panels that f .riii the top of the arch. The whole "re-co work of the walls is splendid in .xecution and give's an added glory to '.:e magnificence of the hall. At the eastern end one is struck with '.:c significance -f the symbolical figures d.nc in tnelcd.

The Alv.le design brings to one's mlr.cT the lately pomn. the awful dignity, and the low transit of x.yxj years' ago. I.!;me!i:.tely above this metal piece is i c'ock five f.-t in diameter.

NASHVILLE TENN. time, destroys distance, promotes com fort, and secures safety. In the right spandrel of the great arch Nashville is represented in , bas-relief by a beai tilul girl habited in Grecian costume colored in lavender and pink, dis playing the lines of beauty and high culture in her form and face. In the eft spandrel opposite is a white-robed figure typifying Louisville. She is more robust in form, more perfectly developed, but not so graceful in Hse or so beautiful and refined in appearance a the figure representing Nashville. These two comely maidens are stretching out their hand's to one another in token of amity. g.od-will, and inseparable com panionship. On the south wall is a highly arti-tL fireplace, elaborately done in stone afte: the Romanesque. The fretwork undei the mantel shelf is a delicate and la!y rinthine work of art in Arabesque, am': harmonizes well with the miniature c 1 limns and arches alove. Not the leasi attractive of the ornaments, because sig nilicant. are those that appear on the tei spandrels on the east and west side o the great waiting room. Five arches o each side spring in grand and noble out lines. Glass work, for the most part, fi! up the open spaces of the arches.

Even bi live-stock interest is represented in' t!v. Taurus of the Zodiac. The floor of the hall is laid with ornamental tiles, and i a rich mosaic work varied in design and elegant in its subdued colors. This princely hall may be lighted at night by two magnificent chandelier.: pendant from the ceiling, each having 31 lights. Resides these, there are fron; thirty to forty groups of lights, ranging from two to six lights each, disposed a":! around ttie hall. When all thc-v re lighted, there is a daz.rlipg. !lr -ii;::;-splcndor rivaling that of the s'ni midday and revealing attractive features that are never seen by daylight. Time and space will not permit of n further description of this matchless waiting room. In its gorgeousness and beauty, its colorings and designs, it re sembles the kingly palaces of trance be fore the revolution. The divinest of arts, sculpture and painting, have leen freely employed in making it the most artistic, the most attractive, the most pleasing, and withal, the most comfort able waiting room in America. The ladies' waiting room, which occu pies tjic northwestern corner, is fifty feet square, and is a dream of beauty. 1 An ornamental square fireplace gives relief to the western wall. The room is fres coed in yellow with wreaths of pink roses on the ceiling. There are six lacquered brass chandeliers that add manifold splendors to this tastefully decorated room at night. The windows are em 1ellished with "sunburst" glass, with ils rare and exquisite coloring and rich beauty.
