FISEA2TDBIEDS TO BE COLLECTED The El Paso zoo, provided it is con structed at "Washington Park, in accord ance with the plans of the councilmen interested in the project, will in future years afford a place of amusement and entertainment for children, and will also enlist the interest of those of ma turer years. fc The plans, as drawn by arhcitect S: E. Patton, have been presented to the city council, and although the estimate cost makes it too large a proposition to be undertaken as a whole at the present time, it is planned to construct as much as possible and add to it as funds are secured, or the acquisition of animals makes it compulsory. The zoo, which is to be located in tht grove In the southwest corner -of -the park, is to have a frontage of 175 feet, and will be 2-75 feet deep. It Is tri angular in shape, and will be-more so when the proposed extension is estab lished in the rear. . Directly around the entire zoo, ac cording to the plans, a promenade 10 feet- wide is to be provided. , Outsldo of that the specifications call for a driveway 16 feet wide, which will also lead around the ,entfre premises. THe main r entrance, which will be in th center of the building, is to S 20 feet wide and -directly hi, front of it, but about -half, way the length of the zoo .is to -be a fountain, which will suppl electric effects at night, and throw shower of-spray (during the day. Th water -is to fall into an aquarium. ' The 'large, circular space proposed around the fountain is to be converted into an aviary, that is, when enough birds are collected to justify Jt. Along the front of the zoo it is pro posed to build iron cages for the ac commodation of the wilder animals. In the rear, the runs for the deer, elk, cam els and other animals will be laid out. The cages for the monkeys, apes and other animals of that class will be on either side of the main entrance. Throughout the whole zoo, an elabo rate seating scale has beeh planned. It Is intended to take advantage of the trees now standing on the 'site of the proposed establishment and form them into numerous small parks. PUTTING TTP "WALLS OF KRAKAUER WAREHOUSE.

AGITATING SUOH AN OFFICE HERE The creation of the office of fire marshal for the city is being agitated considerably In certain circles, business men holding, that such, an official is needed in the city and, Inasmuch as the creation of such an office would save the business men abcur $9000 a year on insurance or 3 cents on every hundred dollars valuation of property, they 'think now is the time to create the office. The city of Galveston has had an ordinance drawn to create such an of fice and. this ordinance, 'while it has not been adopted there, ls patterned af ter similar ordinances inotlier cities and fullv sets forth 'the dufies" of such an official.

Mills Says Camino Real Will Be Built From Raton, New Mexico, to the Texas Line, Making Beautiful Road From El Paso to the Colorado line A Great Day for Las Cruces Was The Visit of the Governor. (By Staff Correspondent.) Las Cruces, N. M., April 2. El Cam ino Real from Raton to El Paso is a certainty. Governor William J. ilills, of the territory of New Mexico, has promised it and governor Mills has never yet failed to make good on a promise. After the reception, the parades and visit to the Agricultural college Fri day, the governor was - the guest of nonor at a good roads meeting held in the national guard armory under the auspices of the Mesillat Valley chamber of commerce, with attorney R. E. Young, the trail blazer of the good roads movement in the Mesilla valley, acting as chairman. Governor Mills himrelf, in a speech which was more a business talk to D ' ness men than an oration, sounded the kevnote of the meeting. As soon as ht had acknowledged the ovation- given him, governor Mills plunged into thf subject of good roads for-the terxitory andby his grasp of the details of thi great tentorial probfem, showed that he is an enthusiast on the subject of splendid highways for New Mexico. "In 1905 the territorial legislature passed a law to-build the Camino Real from Raton, wjiere It enters the terri tory by the bid- Santa Fe trail, to El Paso, wherC this same trail ends. I be lieve we must" carry out the laws on the statute books and the laws call fo the Camino Real (continued appiauw That highway vill bebuilt.as sponas That road the territory can gei t.u ! ought to be built and, while I will not promise when, for I do not believe in making promises which cannot be car ried out, it should be built as soon as the convict labor is available, for I be lieve It will do a great deal of good when it is built." Over Old Santa Fe Trail. This Camino Real, will be built over the route of the old Santa Fe trail and will connect with the work already be gun in the northern part of the terri tory. Jt will enter New Mexico at Raton Pass, will run through Eas " egas, Santa Fe. Albuquerque, Socorro, Las Cruces and terminate at El Paso. Al ready a portion of the work on the northern end of the camino has been 1. onr thft construction work now being done on the Eas Cruces road between the smelter ana me siate n at Anthony win be the final unit In the ,.o instruction.

As it wl be constructed with convict labor from the Santa Fe penitentiary. ne compara tive cost of the driveway which will bisect the territory will be compara tively light and will be met by the ter ritory and the counties through whicl. it passes.

Heagaln referred to the splendid educatioifal in stitution at Mesilla Park and predicted that it would have more than 500 stu dents within three vears. Dr. "VVrfRlit Speaks. Rev. Caspar S." Wright .followed gov ernor Mills and spoke on behalf of the El Paso chamber of commerce. I convey greetings from Texas and from El Paso to your excelency, he said. "We are not ashamed of our city.

New Mexico is our sister and we are minded that we ..,Ai&e. o Q crrant-Mtv nf a ourselves, to you as a great -city of a great state which Is at your command." Elar oh Roads. Judge A. S. J. Eylar, of El Paso, who has done more as county judge for the cause of good roads In the southwest than perhaps any other man, made a characteristic talk on his favorite topic, good roads. "El Paso county pledged itself through commissioner Freuden thal to build a road to Anthony and Bona Ana county pledged Itself to meet that road." judge Eylar said, " and 1 stand here to tell you that we have completed five miles of it, graded 13 miles of it and 'are working with the best equipment and road makers the county has ever had to finish the re mainder. When it is built it will be the show road of El Paso. We are not going to plead with you to build a road to meet it. Things have gone so iar that you can't help it.

" Tell the mossbacks that you find the example of 'El Paso county too strong to repel. You might as well do it now as later. That is what El Paso county did for we had faith in the fu ture of this valley to. dress It up in a, brand new road and I am sure Dona Ana county will do Its part." At the College. After the luncheon at the Agricultural polleee. a brief speecn maxjng perioa was held In the assembly room of Had ey hall, where Dr. JR. E. McBride, president of the board of regents of the college spoke in the Interest of the col lege and was responded to by governor Mills, who pledged his friendship and support to the Agricultural college in overvthing that was undertaken. Dr. W. E. Garrison, president of the college also spoke briefly, outlining the almsi and the purposes or tne institution.
