Masons Have An Offer For
Four Of the Five Floors.
THREE BUSINESS MEN
Of EI Paso Propose To Pay SI 2-
000 a Year Rental Leaving
the Top Floor For Lodge Room.
Following- the anaouncement that
the Masonic lodge of this city will in
all probability erect a five story build-
in? within the next year on tneir Kite
on Sao AntODto fctreet comes an off.r
from three responsible business men 10
lease tbe block for ten years at a re -til
cf 312000 a year. The business
men agree to take four stories of this
rental and to allow tbe Masons the use
of the fifth floor or as many floor as
thpy may erect above four stories. The
offer is bODa fide and will take effect
if accepted by the lodge as soon a the
building is ready for occupancy.
W. S. McCutchen a member of the
building committee and one of the
most active workers to 6ecure the new
building is authority for tbe foregoing
statement. The me a who mike- the
offer Uh their names not to appear
for the present.
The offer is apparently a good one as
tbe rent would In ten yea-s pay tbe
interest on a loan of $100000 at 6 per
cent and 860000 of tbe principal.
That is the Masons would be making
6 per cent clear on their investment.
A local real estate man said bow-
ever that even more could be made if
the building is reoted to separate ten-
ants by the lodge.
The offer is at least encouraging to
the supporters of tbe five-story pro-
ject. It not only shows tbe fea-ib lity
of it but it shows tbe demand for sueo
a building in El Paso. In the face of
such an offer the- building is practical
An Official's Severe Comment On
the Chihuahua System
The trial of Mrs. RLh has aroused
considerable interest io the judicial
system of tbe state of Chihuahua under
which the trial took place. The me-
thods have been contrasted strongly
with those prevailing in tbe United
States. Here everything; except the
grand jury investigations are public
and can be witness d by everyone who
desires to attend. There everything is
secrecy and carried 00 behind closed
doors in tbe presence of only tbe offi-
ci-la attorneys and witnesses. Hre
all matters of fact are passed upon by a
jury of telve citizens. There tie
presiding judge alone determines all
queetous both of law and fact.
Hitherto El Pao ns paid but little
attention to the methods in vogue
across the river and many persons
who have lived here all their lives
know almost nothing ar-out them. Mex-
ican courts have been frequency com-
mented upon for being unduly slow in
tbe cooduct of cases yet in some tbey
cave shown the ability to dispose of
business almost as rapidly as Ameri-
can courts do in some Instances.
A murder occurred in Juarez a
few months ago and in leas than three
months the murderer was taken to
Chihuahua to serve his sentence.
A federal official In Juarez said to a
Herald man the other dav: "The
tate of Chihuahua is far behind tbe
United States and many other states
of the republic In its administration of
justice. In tbe federal district and in
Guadalajara Veracruz and other
places they have tbe jury system in
practice and trials are conducted in
public io very much the same maone
as in the United State. Here every-
thing in the state courts is secrecy and
mystery and it leads to the moet rid-
iculous and absurd ideas getting
abroad. The law forbids the giviDgof
tbe evidence to tbe press uotil
the trial is over and then e very bod v
has forgotten all about the case and
lost interet-t In it. Or course then the
papers publish whatever they can get
outside whenever there Is anything of
sufficient interest as this Rich case.
Tbe result has been that the most ab-
surd stories have been published con-
sisting chiefly of tbe woman's imagi-
nary grievances whereas if the pro-
ceedings were open and public this
could not have occurred. In Mexico
City tbe rule la to give everything out
to the press unless there is some good
reason for not doing so aod so every-
thing is published o rreotly."
NOW IT'S EL PASO AND NEW YORK.
Chicago Isn't In It Until She Can
Build a Few Theaters On Paper.
Who says El Paso in't modern and
up-to-date? This reads just like a
Ne York paper:
El Paso Is to have a first olaes vaude-
ville theatre in the near future if
rumor goes for anything. It is raid a
gentleman is here from Dallas for -that
purpose and is sizing up the town. For
a show of that kind this ctiy is the
cracker jack. There is no city in the
country that would support a combina
tion of that kind better than tbe
queen of the Rio Grande valley. In
When a city begins f have rumors
pf new theaters every so often that city
can be classed in the first rank of
ci les Nothing1 will give a c'ty more
prominence than building tbetters on
paper. Seriously though a vaudeville
theater would ba a good thing here if
properly conducted and it is ti be
hoped that the rumor will materialize.
Civil Service Examination.
The United States civil service com
mission announces that persons who

ted should be forwarded direct to the

J. D. A.
On a Charge Of Using the Mails To
Albert B. .Watson was arrested on
Saturday by Deputy United States
Marshal Hilleband on a charge of us
ing the mails for fraudulent purposes.
The complaint was made out by Deputy
United states Marshal A. f. (Jodding-
ton of Albuquerquf. Watson was confin-
ed in the countv jsil awaiting an order
for his removal from the state.
Watson it is alleged under the name
of the Ohio Specialty company of Cin-
cinnati Oaio bas used the mails for
numerous fake schemes. Watson says
be bas not violated the law aod that he
has simply been using the goemetrlcal
progression scheme for selling goods
which has been in use in the east for a
The scheme Is to sell an article at a
ridiculously low price provided the
customer sells tickets to make up tbe
balance of the purchase. For instance
a man pays 25 cents for a book contain-
ing tickets to the amount of $5. He
sells the tickets to his friends for 25
rents a piece. They in turn forward
the tickets accompanied by 25 cent9
to the original seller and get similar
books of tickets. When all of tbe first
man's friends have turned in tbeir
tickets and quarters the first man
gets a 85 pair of shoes. When the
second circle of friends do likewise tbe
first circle of friends each get a $5 pair
or shoes. The shoes actually cost the
purchaser only 25 cents but the seller
always has the oash In haad for the
shoes before they go out of his hands.
Each circle of customers increases in
geometrical progression but no matter
bow large It grows there is no possible
wayfor itto catch up with tbe seller of
tbe goods. It bas been ueed by many
large mail order bouses thpughout the
country as an advertising scheme.
