NEW LAW LIMITS EX-OFFICIO FEES Austin. Tex , Nov. 24. In an opinion today the attorney generals depart ment held that under the provisions of the amendment to the fee law. which brcomes effecUve on December 1, all countv officers named in the act are urder the provisions of the law. The opinion further holds that while tl commissioner's court Is authorized to allow ex-officlo compensation to county officers, an ex-officlo fee can not be allowed so as to increase the compensation of the officer beyond the maximum amount named in the law. In other words an ex-officio fee cannot - b allowed in any case where the of ficial is entitled to and collects oxcess fees under the terms of the act. The attorney geenral's department is being flooded w ith inquiries from all over the state relative to the construc tion of the countv offices fee bill, which changes entirely the method of compensating county officers.

On Cure Ever Known "Gets-H" the ir Way, S Drops Do It To endure the pains and tortures caused by a little thing like a corn Is ridiculous, simply because It Is un necessary.

Insist that Their Stockyards Are Nobody's Business; Defy the City. John Dyer, the attorney for the El Paso Union Stock Yards company, which is owned and cpntroled W Morris Co., in his talk before the city council, Monday afternoon, attempted to ridicule the idea that the women or the city had protested against the loca tion of nuisances in the Cotton addi tion. He accused those who had signea the protest against u'"""" "t nuisances within the city " 'at tempting to hide behind the skirts of women and Intimated that it was no business of the women of this citj, in his estimation, what Morris & Co. should choose to erect on the bit or. ground 'they had purchased In the Cot ton addition. Why fchould Women Dare! His treatment of the idea that women should dare to presume to say that tney objected to the creation and main tenance of a nuisance within the city limits when his clients, me imguif, u cause wealthy, the overbearing and ar rogant Morris & Co.. was in line wltn his treatment of the general public -ol El Paso and the mayor and the city council when he stated that his con cern did not have to have a franchise from the city to erect stock yards and that though at first he had said they would ask a franchise ho had made up his mind to proceed without the for mality or the courtesy of asking the city fathers whether or not such pro ceeding had the sanction of the city government. A DomhoJiter FurloilK. In the matter of bombast and sneer ing invective the original bombastes furtoso could have learned something from Mr. Dyer had he been Present Monday afternoon to .listen to the lat ter gentleman's "argument In oppo sition to the proposition that the city government of the city of El Paso had any rights at all where they might rnnfliot with not the rights but the desires of Morris & Co., the great, pow erful packers. He was not there to make argument, however, for the reason that his cause admits of no argument. He was there to "muddy the waters" and to prejudice the minds of the mayor and tie mem bers of the city council, if possible, against the cattlemen who have the temerity to insist that they should have any voice at all in the conduct of the cattle business of El Paso, which through long years of patient toll and much privation, they have succeeded In building up to a point where Morris & Co. finally sees it might be profitable for them to control. It is doubtful if he succeeded InNlNtcd Cattlemen Were Dupes. Notwithstanding that Capt. Brack and Harris Walthall. the attor neys for the cattlemen, explicitly stated that only cattlemen were interested in the proposition to have all stock yards moved outside the city limits, where there would be room for compe tition and where the business might be anchored permanently, with ample room for Its growth and the encourage ment ot the erection 01 pacing uuuses nil nthpr industries conducive to its growth, Mr. Dyer continued to insist that the cattlemen were being used as dupes and that the mayor and city council were being Imposed upon. That the mayor, or members of the city coun cil, or anyone else present at the great meeting of cattlemen were led away from the main point at issue by Mr. Dyer's sophistry, his bombast and his aneers. Is not believed. What the City Did. In the course of his talk. Mr. Dyer referred frequently to a 20-acre tract owned by the city of El Paso in the vicinity of the 30-acre stockyards tract recently purchased by his client, and suggested that if the cattlemen were really in earnest in the matter of en gaging in the stockyards business they could purchase that 20 acres from the city. If they did not care to buy other lands In the vicinity which he knew were for sale. Mr. Dyer might have been asked, had it been thought of at the time, why If the city government were not fearful of the smells which mignt do borne b south winds over the entire ciiy, it did not erect its garbage, dis posal plant upon that little tract in stead of buying lands for the purpose on the eastern edge of the city, south or the Jfranklin canal and' close to the river on lands bordering, in fact, upon the district sought to be set aside for stcckyards purposes by the opponents of stockyards within the city limits. May Iluild Fertilizer Factory. Mr. Dyer, on behalf of his client, made a verbal offer of $3000 for the i lght to dispose of all animals dying fri.m natural or accidental causes by comersion into fertilizer. If Mr. Dyer will reduce his offer to writing there a chance that the city may accept his offer. It is fair to presume that if Mr. Dyer secures the contract to rrinvert nil dead animals throughout 'to citv into fertilizers that his fac tory therefor will be erected upon the little 30 acre plot now owned by his clients, within a few blocks of the heart of the city, and that the people of El Paso will be required to tolerate the flies that will be bred therein and the stenches that will emanate there from for all time to come, because the great,, the powerful, the arrogant Mor rife Co. desires it Cnttlemcn Arc Aroused. There is little doubt that Mr. Dyer was moved to his peculiar line of "ar gument" by the presence of so many of the real (attlemen, the cattle pro ducers, the builders of the cattle busi ness of the southwest, the men who liae helped make El Paso the great city it is at the meeting of protest against allowing his clients to arbi trarily deprive them of the profltB of their industry and their thrift by ar rogantly and without leave taking over control of the stockyards business i:i the city of El Paso. It was a sur prise to Mr. Dyer. He did not dream fiat the cattlemen were so thoroughly erased as their .presence at the spe cial meeting of the city council in such large numbers demonstrated. Felt Himself Slipping. He no doubt felt that in spite of the arrogant assumption of authority by his clients the ground was slipping from under his feet. He probably felt inmelled bv his fpnrs tn sav to the city council, in substance at least, "We did not ask your permission but we are there; we have acquired vested rights; what are you going to do about It? Having acquired vested rights, though we did not ask your permission, you will Invade those rights at your peril." Whnt Cattlemen Wnnt. The city council was assured by the representatives of the cattlemen that the only object the latter had In enter ing the stockyards business in El Paso was to preserve for themselves an open market, where competition would be free and untrammeled and where they would be in no danger of being de prived of their just profits for the benefit of an organization which had already monopolized the stockyards business of a number of eastern pack ing centers, to the great detriment of the cattle producers of the country. The cattlemen believe that El Paso is destined to become a great packing center and believe to that end It vM be necessary to concentrate tho stock yards business at some easily accessible location outside the city limits, where packing houses and other Industries dependent upon stockyards for tholr raw material will find ample room in which to grow. Must Oo Together. It was pointed out that packing houses must be located in proximity to stockyards. While stockyards might be permitted to be established within the city limits, it was doubted that packing houses and fertilizer factories, with their noieome smells and obnox ious fumes and gases, would ever be permitted bv an city government to be located within the citv limits That would hae a tendency, It was believed.

The erection of packing houses and factories for the conversion of offal into merchantable by-products would be greatly hastened If the city council were to bend its energies at this time toward forcing them to be concentrated outside the city limits, where ample ground room for all might be secured. The cattlemen want packing houses, because It means to them better prices for their cattle, through a wider, freer nnftn market. Admits Railroad Contract. Mr. Dyer, in his talk before the coun cil Monday afternoon, very boldly ad mitted that his client, "orris & Co.. had secured an advantageous location and were further buttressed by exclu sive contracts with the railroads cen tering in the city of El Paso to handle all cattle carried by them, but he denied that this was a monopoly. He said that if the cattlemen were honest in their intentions of going into the cattle business they could find land in the Cotton Addition at S1500 an acre upon which to locate stockyards and had they been forehanded enough they t..i,f hav. riirfl contracts with the railroads, though In that particular th.v hart been forestalled by Morris f & Co There I" Danger of Monopoly.

"Go, scourge me those yellow bearded barbarians!" he cried; "Come back a conqueror, or show me never your face again!" So forth fared Roman Varus into deep and narrow valleys, through dark and fearsome woods, o'er steep and rugged mountains traversed by icy torrents, till he came to the dark shadows of the Teutoberger Wald. Deep within the fort waited him joungHermann.chief of the Cherus can Saxons, who, when that morning sun's first rays gilded the glittering lances and flashing armor of the Roman soldiery, kissed farewell his bride, sweet-lipped Thusnelda and went his way into that day's fierce fighting. Farther and farther into the wilder ness of giant trees, with their gnailed and knotted trunks, march ing beneath thick shade of leaf and intertwisted limb, wound the sinu ous army of Varus, like some huge Midgard Serpent, slithering along in quest of prey. And now came swamps and marshes sunken and sodden with flood-time waters to stop the march of men weighted with weapons and heavy armor. Nor could they goto right or left, for that there came such blinding showers of spear and dart, and fiendish faces all set with flam ing beards and savage eyes that glowed with hate. And then passed word from rank to rank that all the wild barbarip host were in their rear, hacking and hew ing and cutting like demons; and that none escaped. Came a little island once more with firm footing and fast, and here hud dled together the Roman legiona ries and made last stand all armed with helmet, cuirass, greave and shield. In vain they hurled their heavy javelins; futile and of no use their short sharp swords.

And when the news came to Rome, as in good time it did, Augustus Csesar, in grief and great despair, cried out: "O Varus, Varus, give me back my legions !
