company of tbe Twenty-fourth Infantry

Moxica on April 26th. The rebels oc
cupied fortified positions on three hills.
Tbe fighting lasted three hours when
tbe rebels fled. The Americans cap
tured fifty rifles nine cannon and many
prisoners. They lost two killed and
Rumors have reached the ears of
American cffloes that a rising among
Filipinos in the city Is threatened on
the day the new commissioners arrive.
An investigation was made quietly
with tne result that about 1000 natives
were placed under arrest. In follow-
ing ud clews to tbe conspirators two
Mauser guns were found concealed in
a cockpit in the outskirts of tbe city.
It la also learned that two rebel tax
collectors aid recruiting Insurgents
were working in the city.
Persistent rumors continue here
regarding the fate of tbe town of Bulan

celved a fow days ago had been at-
tacked by a force of 3 000 insurgents
tbe small America garrison being
compelled to take refuge on the ships
In the harbor. The absence of reports
from the commander of the troops im-
pairs the credibility of the many re-
ports in circulation.

ransacked the town of Trooln near
Bulan murdering the natives who
were friendly to Americans and two
Spaolards. The Americans killed 37
of the lcsurgents.

From Public Opinion.
"The Great Southwestern Edition of
tbeElPaeo Herald" is worthy of men
tion for several reasons. Tbe lnforma
tlon It contains relative to the resources
of the large territory of which El Paso
is the natural metropolis is valuable to
investors and -others - interested in the
wonderful development of this section
But of more general interest is the
carefully prepared history of El Pa so
by Mr. Ernest E. Russell who reminds
us that Von Humboldt wrote long ago
that "somewhere on the border of O d
Mexico In the Uolted States a great
city will spring up" and Mr. Russell
proceeds to show how El Paso is des'
tlned to fulfil this prophecy. Scientific
articles on the botany zoology and
geology of the region within a radius
of six hundred miles of El Paso (this
being the scope of tbe book a a whole)
are contributed by Professor C. H. T.
rowneend formerly connected with
the New Mexico agricultural college
and tbe agricultural department and
while tbe petty advertising features of
tbe conventional souvenir edition have

more worthy purpose existing enter-
prises have not been forgotten. An

A Great Mining Field Is Developing

A. Courchene has just returned

the wealth that hts hidden in toese

twelve per cent in copper and one car

Wnen it is remembered that the
Torpedo is but one of several produc-

clear tnat th Organ mountains dis
trlct is destined to be a source of great
wealth to El Paso. Here at a distance
of only forty miles from El Paso is one I

which the Tarpedo lies and all are

properties thus far developed. Indeed
the development of the-e properties

El Paso Is the natural base of supplies

a lowed five days to examine before ap

said "I think I shall probably sign It

The old company is all ready to begin

but this has now been cut down to nine

dedicated and opened. People will

going to build on."
MR. MAXON" TALKS

tbe last. We will go rigbt shead and
build our line regardless of what others
may do. If they build another lice all
right. It will not confl'ct with us. On
the contrary it will rather be to our
advantage and tend to increase tbe
value of our property. A line from the
smelter would bring many persons to
town who would patronize our lines as
"We shall not a?k the council for
any franchise or privileges for some
time yet" said Mr. Maxon. "The first'
step will be to relay our lines and pu
them In first-class shape all ready
for tbe running of the electric cars
before we ak for concessions. Then It
Is hardly likely that they will refuse
us. we certainly shall not antagonize

When the matter of improvements
was firBt under consideration it was
proposed by a majority of tbe stock-
holders to compromise by puttiog on
better cars drawn bv hnmea Instead nt

the owners of the old Santa Fe street

were finally decided upon.

he will retire and will be euoceeded by
General Manaeer Ramsey of the

MR. MAXON'S CORRECTION.
"In order to avoid any possible mis-
understanding" said J. H. Maxon
one of the chief owners of tbe Santa
Fe street railway that was yesterday
consolidated with the El Paso road "I
want to qualify one statement in the
Herald's otherwise perfect report of
tie transaction. A paragraph of tbe
article pays that Mj. Gordon and my
self have agreed to raise the money
necessary to electricise the road on
bonds of the road. It should read that
we have agreed to raise tbe money
necessary for our proportion of the
work or in other words an amount
equal to our pro rata interest."
