This opinion is held to generally by

I made by the man who desires to open
up a new saloon by his merely hav-
1 ing in connection with his place a
I few rooms and giving it the title of a
'hotel.
“I have never seen any statute that;
defines what a hotel shall be In very ,
strict terms,” said an attorney, “and
so far as I am able to see a man has
। a right to furnish a few rooms in
[ connection with his saloon, and give

WHO’S WHO Jr Xsb
As a son of’one of the most noted
of Texas’ pioneer sheriffs and a
grand-son and direct descendant of
Deaf Smith, Sam Houston’s famous
scout, and a character to w'hose me
mory all Texas pays honor, Ben S.
Fisk, justice of the peace of precinct
No. 1, comes from a family line that
will never be forgotten In San An
tonio.
James N. Fisk, the father of “Ben,”
by which title he is called almost as
often’ as by that of Judge, was sheriff
of Bexar county during the years
1868 .and 1869. He was a pioneer of
southwest Texas and a prominent
stockman. The old Fisk ranch on the
Chupaderos creek is one of the most
famous landmarks of this vicinity. On
it stands what was at the time of its
construction in the early ’4o s the only
rock house in the farming districts
of this part of the state.
Prior to his election to the office
of sheriff James Fisk moved to San
Antonip and the Fisk homestead
founded by him, still exists at Presa
and Nueva streets. It is owned by Mrs.
Susan F. Roach, a sister of Judge Ben
Fisk.
Judge Fisk was educated in the
schools of San Antonio and prior to
his election to the office of justice of
the peace in the fall of 1906 wag an
abstracter of title. Previous to this
he was for years a deputy in the
county clerk’s office.
REUL FIGHT FOR
LIFE OF HAINS
TO BEGIN SOON
Alienists and Medical Experts
Will Take the Stand the
Coming Week,
FEARED THAT STRENGTH
OF CAPTAIN WILL FAIL
United Press Association.
Flushing, D. I- May 1. —With the
preliminary skirmishes practically at
an end the real action on, the battle
for the life of Captain Peter C. Hains,
Jr., U. S. A., on trial for the murder
if Wm. E. Annis, is expected to begin
Mine time next week, when the alien
sta and medical experts take the
••land for the defense to testify that
the man on trial was insane when he
hot Annis. The examination of the
rxperts is expected to furnish some
new psychological phraseology, and
inless something unexpected happens
they will lengthen the trial out for two
or three, perhaps even four weeks
more-
During this week the father and two
brothers of the accused man have
taken the stand to show what, in the
contention of the defense, drove the
captain mad. When the alleged con
fession of the captain’s wife, Claudia,
was read in court, after being idenil
fled by Genial Hains, the accused cap
tain broke through the dejected atti
tude of inattention which he has in
variably shown in court and dropping
his head in his arms, sobbed and
moaned. This scene was repeated
when his brother, Thornton J. Hains,
told of the confession. Since those
breakdowns Judge Garretson and the
I jail officials are fearful lest the pris
oner’s strength give way entirely and
■ delay the already lengthened proceed,

jthe jurors, upon several of whom the
confinement Is wearing. Wm. H. Den

When it comes to tying a brisk
and fast marriage knot Judge Fisk is

is married and hag two children. He

The defense has etill about 40 wit

will call many In rebuttal. The bulk
of these will be a/my officers who will
testify as to whether the actions of
the captain prior to the shooting and
after the time of the alleged confes
sion of his wife were rational.
Major John P. Hains was on the

Lawyer Mclntyre when court adjourn,

It seems the people out west will sup

our famous “balloon chorus” carried, so

treated that prize collection of fat New

coldness. Consequently, Glau faced the
problem of reducing the entire front and
