Daughters of Republic In Wranglt
About tJse of Site—Park -Project
,j»eets 'Opposition of Those
Wishing Museum.
Sari ..Antonio, Tex.—Texas women
composing the organization known aa
the Daughtersof the Republic are in
a wrangle that promises to make all
their former troubles over the Alamo
look -small. The present trouble grows
out of the deeilre of a faction in the
organization to- tear away' the old
mission of San Antonio de Valero. It
Is proposed to replace the present: un
sightly fortresslike structure with a
The old mission walls adjoin the
'Alamo and oover a large area .of land.
This land was purchased by the state
at the last session of the legislature
and custody,of it given to the Daugh
ters of the Republic. It is claimed
by one side that a part of the old
adobe walls' in the present building
fetood in the original mission walls, be
hind which the Texas patriots fought
and from which, not one escaped alive.
The other faction contends that-no
vestige of the old walls remains and
that it is practically Impossible to lo
cate the old site with sufficient accur
acy to restore the walls.
The war is being fought in the press
of Texas and it is to be taken before
the legislature with a view to secur
ing a law authorizing the destruction
of. the old mission. This mission was
purchased by Miss Clara Driscoll, now
Mrs. Hal Sevier, a* Texas woman who
has. a reputation as a novelist and
dramatist She made it possible for
the. state to purchase the Alamo and
the Mission de Velaro property by in
vesting her own irioney "and holding
the property until the appropriation
was made.
The opposing faction of Daughters
of the Republic in this Alamo battle
is led by Miss Adina de Zavala, daugh
ter of a veteran of the Texas war of
independence. The 'fight is exceed
ingly acrimonious and involves many
of the leading society women of
MiSs De Zavala claims that tho old
walls may be made into an arcade and
used as & museum ot Texas history.
At this time the building is used as a
wholesale grocery and whisky ware
This trouble all came up over the
offer of a St Louis man named
Charles, M. Reeves, representing1 own
ers of land Just back of the old walls
to defray the entire expense of wreck
ing the old building and making a
park In its place.

Doctor Performs Remarkable Opera
tion to Save a Life. ,::V
Philadelphia.—One of those opera
tions so delicate that even surgeons
consider them with grave misgivings
was performed at the Medieo-Chirur
gical hospital, wfien Profs. Mann and
Ashton fed 50 feet of fine silver thread,
or wire, into an aneurism of the heart
of Frederick Williams, a barber.
An aneurism is formed by a blood
vessel of the heart dilating. It grows
until the tissues stretch and touch
the walls of the chest, when it bursts,
causing instant death.
About a month ago" physicians who
examined Williams regularly told him
he should stop work or the aneurism^
would burst.
He_was removed to tho hospital
and has since remained in bed,
scarcely daring to move. As a last
resort surgeons decided on an opera
tion- to save the patient's life.
The aneurism was pricked, and as
the silver wire was fed into the open
ing through a needle, it was coiled
around inside so as to form a frame
work" on which the blood could coagu
It ishoped that the clot thus formed
,may grow into-s new tissue and. form
a wall, so that when the*aneurism does
burst the aorta will remain intact.
The surgeon cannot yet tell whether
the operation was success.
