A I.imiT reporter was tills morning favored with nn Interesting conversation with laul ilrcmond, of Houston, who came to our city to attend the meeting of the directors of the Gulf road, held this morning, and whose name nt once recalls the Indomitable energy possessed by this veteran railroad constructor. Jlr. Ilrcmond Is a striking example or the salubrious climate Texas enjoys, for, though ha Is 74 years of age, ho wears them lightly and tools halo and hearty, far more so Indeed than most men of lie has had an experience of 32 years In railroad construction, having' built the Houston and Texas Central road and others, therefore Mr. Ilrcmond Is Justly entitled to be called the veteran railway King of Texas. It was In 1852 that ho commenced his operations by building the Texas Central railroad, and he Is now owner of the Houston, F.nst and West Texas lino of railroad. With that courteousness and affability of manner which Is the distinguished character of Jlr. Paul Bremond, he answered the following questions concerlng the pro jected railroad to the gulf, at the same time giving his Ideas on railroads In general : Reporter. When were you In tho city last? Jlr. ltremond. I came here about 7 years ago, but returned to Houston the same day, and therefore had no oppor tunity of observing the city. The last time I stayed here was In 1317, and then the city Was composed of nothing but small houses and Jacals. I see a great Improvement now. R. What effect do you think the Uulf railroad will have on the prosperity of the city? Mr. II. It will have the eOect of trans ferring the business of the city to tho coast. That was our experience at Houston. Formerly Houston bandied most of the cotton, and most of the business was done there before the rail road went to the coast at Clinton. When that was In operation the bulk of the business was transferred to the coast; but Houston by her energy, and a com plete system of railroads, and the energy of the merchants centered there, thus, make herself the hub for the spokes around her. It. Which would be tho best, to con struct a broad or narrow gauge road t Sir. B. It would be to the advantage of the citizens to construct n narrow gauge road, as the cost Is less; one-third less; and they ore safer. In six years we nave not Killed a single passenger. The narrow gauge Is not so dangerous as broad gauge at points of curvature. It. Do you think this road will be a paying concern? Mr. i!. I would not Invest a dollar In It. If they turned their attention and built a road to gain connection with our system of railroads, It would be better. Ve will be running to St. Louis by nar row gauge within three months, and to Ohio In the spring. Our road (Houston, Kast and West Texas railroad) will be completed to Sbreveport. which will shorten the distance to New York by 2.V) miles by using that road. 1 want the citizens of Kan Antonio to Join hand In hand with us. We have a system of roads which may be called the peoples' road, owned and controlled entirely by their own capital. It. How much could you build the road per mile, narrow gauge, for? Mr. II. Could not tell, not having seen tho ground. As to expense, the three miles I am building now between Sbreve port and Iluena Vista will cost me $7000 u mile, owing to thestrenms and bridges which exist on the route. It. In what direction do you think the road ought to take for the Interests of the city? Mr. 11. To Galveston, undoubtedly. Ily building a line of road from San An tonio to seally about 160 miles, 35 miles would place you In connec tion with Galveston, nnd It would be nearer than Colonel Felrce's road, and tho cost would not ba nearly as much as the road to the gulf. The cost of machinery and every thing will be much dearer. Why, It will not cost less than SO cents for ties, and besides, $30,000 will have to be spent when they get to the coast. It. What do you Intend doing with your road, and how many miles will you have completed by next year? Mr. 11. It Is completed to Sbreveport. We aro now working at both ends. My, son Is nt tho other end, and has graUcd eight miles during the last month. I expect to get through by next spring, and connected with tho Krlanger syndi cate, who have seven miles. This syn dicate owns the Cincinnati Southern, the Alabama Southern, and a new line to New Orleans. Mr. Bremond said he was surprised to see the Ustlessncss that our capitalists nnd merchants exhibited. Mr. Bremond then Informed the reporter that he In tended returning home to-day. He stopped the street car, nnd the Lioht reporter went on his way meditatively, wondering whether ha would he able to work 12 hours a day as l'aul Ilrcmond does, although rapidly approaching the Bible limit of the age of man. 1SANITARY INSPECTOR'S WORK. One Good Day's Work -Abuse of the Sanitary Laws. Sanitary Inspector Torres yesterday morning Inspected Lascbappelle'i and Dietrich's soap factories, In the First ward. He found Laschappell's factory In a bad sanitary condition and ordered It cleaned Immediately. Dietrich's fac tory wos perfeotly clean. Sir. Torres says he has about complet ed his Inspection of the two wards, and will sow begin again and rclnspeot the wards to see If his former Instructions havo beeri complied with, nnd If they have not he will summon all violators before the Itecorder without mercy. In company with Mr. Torres this re porter visited the chllo-con-carno facto ry near the Springs yestcrdoy after noon. Mr. Will Tobln, In charge of the factory was very Indignant at tho nrttclo published In the Limn of last Monday, on tho complaint of n citizen living on North Florcs street, that the refuse of the fuctory was emp tied Into the ditch, and he took great pleasure In convincing the otllcer tlint no such thing was done or had ever been attempted. Ho showed that there was no refuse, nnd opened the only waste pipe there was that discharged Into tho ditch, and showed n clean stream of water thst came from the boiler w here the chile was boiled. The ground was colored with a red sub stance like chile, which reddened tho waters as It flowed, though tho water Itself was clear as It flowed from the pipe yesterday. Mr. Torres Instructed him to run the pipe into the ditch and not let the water tiller through tho S round. Mr. Tobln said Hint about llvo ays ago he gave n Mexican family, Rodriguez, living on the ditch, a lot of spoiled chile and It may have been put by them In tho ditch. This family was visited ami n bath house was discovered in the ditch. This was ordered taken away, and the family forbidden to bathe In the ditch. The yard was very lllthy and was ordered dleaned up. In refer ence to throwing the chile into the ditch, Mr. Rodriguez brought forth the basket full of chill peppers given hlni by the factory. It was dried nnd perfeotly good. He stated that about live days ago the factory men had wathed out their boiler and emptied a lot of wnste grease and chile from tho holler through the waste pine Into the ditch, and that he had told them not to do It again or he would complain. Torres then ordered the factory to run their pipe Into the San I'edro creek, which they promised to do. Proceeding up the ditch tho In spector found n bathing place where hoys bathe. He will watcli this closely, and If any bathers are caught they will be taken before the Recorder. A gar dener living on the ditch at the springs was ordered to clean up a lot of rotten pumpkins and dry weeds and burn them. Some campers wero ordered to clean up a quantity of old hay and horse manure that floated Into the ditch. A great pllo of rotten lemons nnd straw from the bar rooms at the springs was also or dered taken away from the banks of the ditch. Tho brush and weeds on Colonel CI Ilium's property on Laurel street, near the faotory, will also be cleaned up. Taken altogether, the Inspection devel oped a great many abuses of the sani tary laws, and shows the great need for the employment of a regular sanitary Inspector or the ditches of the city nnd also of the river, "whoso sole duty should be to keep the waters as pure as a strict compliance of the laws will make them. It Is to be hoped the City Council will order water pipes to be laid on North Flores street as far as I no San I'edro Springs, and If this is dono, n good deal or sickness consequent upon the use of tho ditch water, will bo avoided. FROM EAGLE PASS. Dull Buslness-Tho Brldfje Stingy Republicans, Etc Editor 8an Anlonlo I.lnht: Kaglk Pass, August 2iJ. Business Is dull In this section. No lain In 11 months and all stock almost transparent, except the stock of the International Foot Bridge company, which Is quoted at $.100. Tho Mexican engineers projected a narrow gauge bridge, based on the diminutive Mexican foot, but when Col onel J. H. Mcl.enry and other Democrats, wearing No. It's, got In as directors, It was found necessary to widen the gauge, and an additional assessment was contemplated. Work on the bridge has not yet been Inaugurated. They are awaiting the decision of the bondhold ers, W. H. Vanderbllt, Chrysler, Sr., of San Antonio, and others. Tho present high price of the bridge stook arises from a discovery made by Andy Bon nett, our largest dealer In groceries. Andy sells an Immense amount of sour kraut, and be found that the bonds made a superior wrapping for that fruit, so that n large quantity of the bonds have been sold at $300 per car load of 10 tons. 'Tls an ill bond that wraps no goods. The gushing Republicans of the dia tom house have shaken Arthur and nre pronounced but economical Blalno men. A few weeks ago these patriots sub scribed, on the authority of tho Deputy Collector, $350 to start a campaign pa- Eer. But one employee of the custom ouse. Inspector Jerome, produced nny money, and the campaign paper mate rialized not. But when It comes to the formation of clubs and the election of Chairmen thereof, the custom house Re publican Is always on nand. He cheer fully permits his name to be used In any prominent capacity which does not In volve the expenditure of coin. He will send marked copies of papers contain ing the proceedings of Blaine and Logan clubs, over which lie presided, to James O. and John A., thereby proving a maxi mum of patriotism at a minimum of cost. It Is an oleomargarine of Republicanism on their Federal bread. Nothing pro duces a wider smile on the Rio Grande than a Blaine nnd Logan club of Federal ofllce holders. Maoism. More Horses Stolen. Sergeant George Farron, of the State Rangers, with n party of his men, Is In the city. They have returned from Han dera county, where they captured about 13 head of stolen horses, belonging to parties In Cotulla. The thieves who wero with the stook escaped. Preliminary Examination. On Friday morning at V o'clock there will be a preliminary examination of all new pupils desiring to enter who have never been connected with the publla schools. This does not Include begin ners. All pupils who are through In the four fundamental rules and properties of numbers In arithmetic, and oan read and write fairly, and have some knowl edge of Kngllsh grammar, shall apply to the High School; all others must apply to their respective ward schools. Pupils should oome provided with lead pencils and common paper, on which to reckon, FISH MORTALITY. The City Physician's Investiga tions? ns to the Causes of It. Willi regard to Dr. Cupplcs' state ment, which appeared In yesterday's Lmiit, attributing the mortality of the fish In the San I'edro creek from tho lime which was placed In the gutters for disinfecting purposes, the City Physician says lie cannot concur with Dr. Cupplcs for the reason that the pro cess of dlslnreotlng has been confined mainly to privies and tho lime thrown down them certainly has not gone Into the creek. The comparatively small quantity that has been placed In the gutters for sanitation has remained there, from the fact that not enough rain has fallen' to carry It Into either river or creek. As to Dr. Clippies' conjectural secondary cause of the gas factory and Ice works Dr. Braunnagel asserts that he Is not prepared to slate thrt tho refuse from the gas works has not a poisonous ell'eot on the llsh, but ho has not yet arrived at the particular Impurity, If any, that the f;as factory place there. Regarding the ce factory, that cannot bo considered as contributing towards the Impurities of the water. The waste water that Is turned Into the river from that factory Is far purer than when originally used and except that Its temperature Is high er, all Impurities and anything of a calcareous nature It might hold In solu tion would be deposited on the colls of the cooling tank before It entered the creek. Up to tho present time, nnd as far as the Investigation has proceeded, only a large quantity of fllth, organic and vegetable, has been discovered. Noth ing that would actually bo dangerous to the life of llshes having been detected. That the theory of Dr. Cupples Is wrong may be asserted with confidence, be cause the llsh die In the Alazan creek, the rate of mortality there being equally as high as In the ban Pedro creek, and on that creek exist no factories of any description. One hypothesis Dr. Braun nagel offers, but which ho cannot at present support by evidence, Is that the llsh are asphyxiated by having their gills stopped up through the water being sat urated with oil or grease, the grease get ting on the gills or the llsh, respiration Is retarded and the llsh not being able to Inspire sufficient oxygen, dies. The peo ple residing near the San Pedro say the water often looks like chocolate and presents an oily appearance on the surface. Tho City Physician has made arrangements with a Mexican to bring him a sample of the water directly tho chocolate color and oily surface re appears. The great mortality of the II nny tribe may be due to poisonous substances In the water, hut the most reasonable conclusion to draw Is, that It Is an epidemic, for San Antonio Is not alone In the 11 all trouble, Galveston and other cities complaining of the same thlnir. and what sunnorts this theorv Is. that the mortality Is to be observed al ways at the same period ot tho year.

FnKKt'ii, Mayor. Attest: E. P. Clali.ov, City Clerk. Ths New Opanlng. Questions about politics have become a thing of tho past, and what wo look to now Is tho right men In the right place. This old but truo saying will be clearly verified by the grand opening of Hart & Bond's new saloon, opposite the court house; next Saturday night. Ernest Hart and Dick Bond are the right men, and the Howard building, directly opposite the house of law Is the right place. These gentlemen have been very careful in fitting up their saloon In a neat and comfortable way. In fact, a trip from the frontdoor to the basement would lead one to suppose a government contractor had been at work, so simple and perfeot'are the fixtures arranged; all of the work connected with this estab lishment Is the work of home mechanics. Messrs. Hart & Bond are not the men to send to New York and other plaoes for work that oan be done at home. They will carry nothing but straight goods of the following brands; J. B. Rlpv, Mon arch and Kinney McGloughllng Robert son County; choico wines and the best brands of cigars. All of the fancy mixed drinks known to tho drinking world will bo served In proper style. This department will be under the management of Ernest Hart and that popular young bartender, Johnnie Dver. The lunch counter will be under the control of Dick Bond (late of the Stock Exchange). The mention of this fact will please many as Dick certainly understands how a lunch counter should be conduoted, and when we think of the days when he dished us nut a plate of his famous Irish stew and his American chile con carne, we detect the sclaythcr reklngout the edges of our mouth. Oh, Doctor, won't we eat. From 10 to 12 dally a hot free lunoh will bo set, after which a dry lunch will be run where the hungry may appease their appetite at a nominal figure. Next Saturday night, August 30, nt 8 o'clock, the doors will bo thrown open nnd a hearty welcome extended to all. A grand banquet will bo set, to which all are Invited. In answer to our query ns to the title of our now house, Messrs. Hart x Bond gave us to understand that the name was to be suggested bv the nubllo. and the christening to take place the night of the opening. The saloon will he conducted In a strlotly business and respectable man ner;everyone will be treated allle.recelv lng for his money full value. "One Bot tle' will be the motto.

A St. Paul special says i Some tlmo between Satur day night and Sunday morning the Peo ple's bank, nt the corner of Seventh and Sebley streets, was robbed or $10,000 by some person In possession of the com bination, as Its vaults and locks were found Intact and perfect. The bank olllclals are oonlldent that the criminal Is Edward Mason, 10 years of age, and a book-keeper In the bank, who has been missing since the robbery was discov ered. The olllclals claim to know tho whereabouts of Mason, and say he will be In custody In a few hours. The safe combination was In possession of Cashier Rlttenhouse only, nnd how the boy secured It Is a mystery. Oalvkitox, August 20 Justice Spnnn was engaged to-day in hearing testimony In the case of the mysterious death of Richard Flechslg, the young German boy found hanging to n tree down the Island about a week ago. Owing to sus- Slclous circumstances and publlo clamor, ustlce Spann reopened the hearing of testimony, and a second Inquest Is now In progress. No startling evidence has been elicited yet. The testimony thus far scarcely sustains tho oharge that young Flecnslg was cruelly treated by Junemann and his wife. The case at tracts considerable attention, particu larly among the Germans In the city, who have undertaken to unravel the mystery In connection with Flecbslg's death. Hearing continues to-morrow.
