Refuse substitutes.— Kelly Drug Co. adv. Arrived from the City of Mexico. Dr. F. E. Gaines, son of Dr. Frank P. Gaines of this city, ar rived from the City of Mexico last Sunday morning byway of Manzanillo and San Francisco, one of the only two roiTcs over which one can get out ot Mexico at present, the other being by the way of Vera Cruz. The Doc tor reports business as being dull i in the Southern Republic owing I to the mining and farming in-1 dustries being tied up on account, of the revolution. San Francis co and San Diego, he says, are busy places and preparations for the Panama Pacific Exposition are going on rapidly. The Doctor was in the City of Mexico last February during the bombardment, and no doubt, can tell some thrilling stories of the | happenings there. He is very favorably impressed with Win j slow, and will, perhaps, remain i here until after the first of the ! year. Asked for Franchise At the last regular meeting of ! the city council a letter by J. F. Mahoney was presented asking for a franchise for a street rail- I way. The letter was referred to the city attorney. Mr. Mahoney says that once the franchise is granted work will commence on the project at once. It is proposed to run the track north and south on Aspin wall street and east and west on ! Third and Cherry streets, prac j tieally belting the city. The sooner this project mat ' ures the better. The Santa Fe | shops are more than a mile out, j and the time lost in a year by all j the men working out there, ' walking there and back twice a ! day would almost build a street railway. Next Sunday Rev. H. W. Ad" kinsop, D. 1). Mission superint endent is elected to preach at the Methodist church. Mayor of Town. Attest: W. J. CROZER. Town Clerk.
