S20 for the Morning's Entertainment.
Dan Weber's two cases came off before the
Recorder's court this morning one for care-
less driving the other for being drank. In
the first. It was proved thai Dan had rut into
Captain Millet's buggy and broken It and he
was fined $5. In the second cate for being
drunk Dsn called a jury "six men to one any
day" said Dan and conscientiously thinking
the police mutt have been upside down when
they arrested him. lie claimed a jury and
Oh I Ye Gods I he got one. "It Is better to
bear the eyili we have than to fly to those we
know not of" but Dan "jumped clean out of
the frying pan Into the fire" when he flew
from Bryan Callaghan'i kindly-consldcrately
asked for $5 Into the arms of what be thought
a clearing of stain a not guilty giving jury.
Fitzhenry Abbey and Zink all gave evi-
dence as to finding Weber under the influence
of a little jolification and his own witnesses
also testified he was a little full.
The jury retired and after a little consider-
ation concluded that Dan made a mistake
calling them especially when the air was raw
and sitting in the court room was not exactly
beneficial to colds so a pipe of peace with a
$20 fine in It was smoked by Weber and

Alderman Lockwood talked plainly and
pointedly on the condition of Austin street.
It was a disgrace to the city. He then moved
to reject the report of the City Engineer. Lost.
Contracts were ordered let for sidewalks on
City Engineer Smilh was sent for to esplain
his written report. He said that only one
sidewalk on Villtta street had been made by
Mr. Supcrville. It was a very poor one at
that and not up to the standard required. After
the amendment of his report by the Cily
Engineer it was adopted.
Alderman Dwyer reported the accounts of
officers as correct.
Adams & Wickes' petition for reduction of
assessments reported upon favorably and
adopted by the Council.
Alderman Dwyer asked for an extension of
time In which to make his report for the estab-
lishment of a District and Criminal court.
Also for further time to report on Indianola
atrcet. Both requests were granted.
Alderman Story reported the following rela-
tive to the removal of lien Milam's remains :
To tho Hon. Mayor and City Council.
Your committee appointed to consider and
to whom was referred the communication rela.
tive to the removal of the remains of the
lamented Miltm would most respectfully re-
port as follows ; The Cily Council by a reso-
lution heretolore passed appropriated $300
for the purpose of enclosing the old cemetery
or park where the remains are at present In-
terred; lhat it Is the object of the Council as
your committee believes not only to enclose
but also to beautify this park and to erect over
the last resting place of her heroic dead suit-
able and lasting monuments as the fittest
tribute to their valor. Believing that it is far
better that these remains should under the
circumstances be undisturbed we most re-
spectfully request that the Council decline
their proposition! that the thanks 'of this
Council be tendered the gentlemen who
ottered to remove the same for their kind and
Alderman Story asked what had been done
toward eipendlog the money voted for enclos-
ing the old cemetery when the Mayor stated
that nothing had been done.
The health ordinance as proposed by the
Board of Health was read by sections and
wttn some amendments adopted. After a
suspension of the rules the ordinance was
Alderman Story's ordinance concerning
telegraph poles was read the second time
and continued till next meeting.
Mr. Ed. Steves by permission s'ated to
Ihe Council lhat people on Sycamore street
had built there as It had been mapped and
laid out 20 years ago. The City Engineer
with a new survey is changing all this and
causing hardship. He hoped the Council
would deal justly by the property owners on
this street. If not they must seek redress in
Here .Aldeiman Dwyer was called to the

Alderman Story amended by employing
two surveyors to do that work to-day or as
soon as possible. Amendment accepted and
Aldermen Dwyer Schreiner and Niggli
were appointed that committee.
The Council then adjourned till 3 o'clock
lteconstdera and Announces Himself ft
Candidate From the First Ward.
By reference to our columns It will be seen
that Alderman Gallagher has reconsidered
his resolution not to be a candidate for re-
election and has consented to make the race.
This he does at the earnest solicitation ol his
fellow members of the Council reinforced by
a host of his constituents. We are glad Mr.
Gallagher is a candidate. His cxpetience of
the past two years as one of 'the present in-
cumbents from the First ward will be of the
utmost advantage to him and his efforts
should he be re-elected and of which there
can be but little doubt. He has not been the
Orator Puff of the Council popping every
moment to ventilate bad English or snap at
some parliamentary quibble but he has been
practical progressive and courteous and zeal-
ous. As Chairman of the Police committee
and member of Ihe Fire Improvement and
Gas and Water committees he has made an
enviable record for himself and advanced the
Interests of the city measureably. Every dol
lar Mr. Gallagher has accumulated In San
Antonio he has Invested in bis ward in im
provements and he now pays heavier taxes
than any other Alderman In the First ward.
His friends and constituents wilt gta y wel-
come him again in the race1

draml Incidents In the Career of This
Noble Monterey I'uyslclan and
Perhaps there is no Mexican residing In the
State of Nueva Leon as well known to our
citizens as Dr. Joie Coczalcs the philanthro-
pist and physician of Monterey. He has
treated many cl our citizens for various mala-
dies when in penury and distress and his
services were rendered always without any
compensation. The following from the grace
ful pen ol Mr. L. A. Dowdcll Ihe Monterey
correspondent ol the New Orleans Times-
Democrat will in its perusal gratify the old
time friends Mexican aad American of
"Gonzalites" as he is affectionately called
by all 1
I will give one more example of his life to
demonstrate the grandeur ol his character
where his charity made actually a hero of the
man and enabled him to rise superior fo his '
human nature verifying scripture again In
that "he who conqucreth himself Is greater
than he who taketh a city" It was related
to me a few days ago by a most estimable gen
tleman who Is a Judge ol the Supreme Couit
of Mexico. While be dwelt on Ihe main por-
tion of it
HIS EYES FILLED WITH TEARS
of genuine admiration and love for one who
could so nobly overcome his human Impulses
under Ihe most trying ordeal for the sake ol
At the age of 23 Dr. Gouzales msrtled a
beautiful and charming lady with whom he
lived most happily for five years. She had
every comfort of home life that heart coutd
wish and had won the best love and confi-
dence of her noble husband. General Artsta
commander In chief of the army of Mexico
and a handsome and fascinating man had
been received in bis home as a friend and a
gentleman for a length of time. The doctor
never. dreamed of anything wrong until one
night as he was on his way to visit a patient
he made a discovery that almost dethroned
his reason. His beautiful wife was unfaithful
After recovering somewhat from the shock
he proceeded to see his patient and on his
return went to the hospital instead of his
home. His house knew his footfall no more
forever. His books and valuables were sent
to him a few days thereafter. He returned
everything saying that he did not wish to
have a single reminder of his misfortune.
Two years passed by when General Arista
the cause ol his domestic unhsppiness was
taken sick. He grew worse and worse as the
days fled. Every physician in the country
had given him up. Only one more chance
was left for him and that was the skill of Dr.
Gonzales. So he was sent for but he refused
to go at first. Friends came to him and
assured him that every physician had des
paired and the General would certainly die if
he did not go to his rescue. On his bended
knees he implored bis God to give him grace
and strength to bear the ordeal. He went
and as he entered the sick room there sat at
the head of the dying man'i bed the beautiful
but faithless wife. He staggered under the
burden but by the grace ol God and the Doc
tor's great love for humanity he conquered
himself. He treated the General for some
time and restored him to life and health and
to the arms ol the treacherous wife.
VERY NEARLY FATAL.
Mrs. Ifayden Administer! Morphine In

Before attempting to administer medicine
to the sick look and look carefully at the
label. If there Is no label hesitate and
should you not know the nature of the medi
cine you are about to give don't give it at alt.
This morning Mr. Harden the son of Dr.
Hayden of our city a well known
physician was taken ill with
slight fever which he has generally
remedied by taking quinine. His wife on fiod'
ing her husband out of sorts made him take
what she thought to be quinine but which
in reality was morphine. Soon very soon
the fatal error was discovered and the cruel
poison began Its work. Mrs. Hayden seeing
her husband in covulsions and Imagining
something must have gone wrong hastily
sent for any physlcisn procurable.
Dr.CouppIes was the first to arrive on the
spot and exerted every means to save the
(folsoned man. At first it was not believed
that Mr. Hayden could lire but through the
untiring efforts of the doctors life was le
stored and from last accounts the sick man
was doing well.

For some time the question of brick side
walks has been before the Council and their
practicability as to becoming an A class side
walk. This they will certainly not should
they be laid down in the way and manner In
which several are laying them down. Some
lay them on black dirt consequently they
sink and when viewed by the inhabitants ot
the locality are cried down. For the benefit
of those not versed in the att of laying down
sidewalks composed of brick the following
few points are valuable 1 The bricks should
be laid on sharp sand not lime and not in
less than three Inches; the bricks should be
laid In an octagon style and an inch above th
curbstone; a roller should then be passed
over them and the sidewalk will then be
brought to a level. The Council should pass
an ordinance enforcing brick sidewalks If they
