In a rapidly growing city like El Paso,
where nine-tenths and probably nlne-
teen-twentleths, of the building Is done
with brick, a strike of bricklayers, if
made at a time when building was go-
ing on at Its usual rate, would cause
great loss and annoyance. Some weeks
ago the bricklayers'union of this city,
numbering. It la said, 25 all competent
bricklayers who are not contractors,gave
notice to the contractors that on May 2
they would demand a reduction
from ten to nine hours as
A day's work,
the wages to remain at $!> per day. The
union lias about 25 members. There
was much talk among the contractors
as to the best course to pursue but no
concerted action was taken, Asaresuit
the prospect now is that the union will
get the reduction demanded notwith-
standing that just at this time there is a
lull lu the business. Some of the con
tractors show a disposition to stand out
but enough of them are yielding to
break down the opposition.
George Paul, contractor, told a Timri
reporter yesterday that he ahould put
ten bricklayers to work to-day on the
I.oeb building on Magollln avenue, at
nine hours. McCbesney & Co. are em
ploying four bricklayers on the building
to he called •' Arthur's Hotel," corner
of West Overland and Santa Fe
streets, and these men quit at live
o'clock last night. Contractor Terry,
who Is building Id three-room cottages
for I.urkins & Merrick on Santa Fo
street between West Overland and tbo
acequla, employs one union man, who
will work nine hours hereafter. Thin
makes 15 men employed on these three
jobs who have received nine hoars.
Probably others realtered about the city
will raise the number to 18 or 20 who

One contractor said to a Tains man
yesterday: •' Contractors must raise
their prices. They cun't afford to put
up buildings at the present tlgures. The
competition has cut oil'all protlts. Last
week the brick moulders got an advance
of 10 cents per thousand, and the rail-
road companies have advanced the rate
on cord wood 75 cents per cord, which
will increase the cost Of brick. Now
the bricklayers are knocking oil an
hour's w ork per day both forthemselves
and for all laborers connected with tliler
work. At Silver City the price of brick
laid In the wall Is $12 per M, and stone
$11 per perch. Here the price for brick
Is $8.50 per M, and fur stone $2 per
perch. Contractors cannot afford to
work nt the prices they now charge.'

MIXED PAINT FOR FAMILY USE
The first iintl-prohibl'lon meeting in
this city that has taken any action was
held la«l night at the city hall. W.J
Fcwel. chairman for El Paso county,
called the meeting to order. Dr. W. M.
Yandell was called to the chair and 15.
U.Kerr was made secretary. About
fifty mm were present, among them the
following: Chairman Fewel, .fudge l-'ul-
vey, Sheriff White, Treasurer Julian,
Colonel Baylor, Judge Edwards, Dis-
trict Attorney Dean, City Marshal
White, Ben. Schuster, Alderman Zacli.
White. Mr. Eckcr.Mr, Bovee and others,
MeSsrs. Wins. Davis and J. P. Dieter
were appointed delegates to the anti-
prohibition convention which assembles
at Dallas to-morrow, May 4. A finan-
cial committee w as appointed as follows:
,J. 11. Catron, J. P. Dieter, S. ('.
Slade, Sain. Kcrnandls, Z. T. White,
G. S. Browcr, who was present, was
named as a member of the committee,
but stated that he was present merely
as a spectator and was not in sympathy
with the meeting.
General speeches were then made.
Mr. Dean was called up first. He thought
every man in the county understood the
question as well as he, and understood
the financial effect of a prohibition
amendment on this city. No other por-
tion of the state would he affected
like this end. Our revenue comes main-
ly from occupation taxes, which are
paid chiefly by the liquor Interests. The
retail and wholesale liquor men pay
,000 a year Into the county treasury
and a like sum Into the city treasury
" And we might as well understand at
the outset," said the speaker, " that It
is not child's play. The prohibitionists
In the eastern part of the state are well
organized. To settle the question we
must not only defeat the amendment,
but defeat it heavily."
Judge Edwards next spoke: "The
amendment proposed would not prohi-
bit the importation of liquor Into the
state. It will simply cut off all our re
venue from liquor, kill the wine making
Industry and still leave as much whis-
key in the state and as much crime and
violence resulting from whiskey drink-
ing. 1 am not a liquor man but 1 am an
anti-prohlbitloulst. 1 seldom drink
liquor because 1 do not like it
But 1 bellcie it Is wrong for the
government to Interfere with
man's private life more than is neces-
sary. ' am opposed to prohibition as I
am opposed to a .Sunday law."
Mr. Hague thought that speech mak
ing should he delayed till the Dallas
convention outlined the work.
Colonel Bay lor said : 11 ne ver drln k
but I am opposed to this measure be-
cause I think the state has no right to
say what a man shall or shall not
Judge Falvey said he would do all
bis power te defeat prohibition, but
the time had not yet come to discuss It.
The meeting then adjourned aubject
to call by the chairman.

nia, tint Senator Bate is still In this city.
