FALL HATS IN ALL STYLES!
Just because you may be “too fat,”
“too lean,” “too long,” “too
short” is a poor excuse for wearing
clothes that “don’tfit right,” when,
at moderate cost, you can obtain
the famous Pickwick right-shape
clothing for “hard-to-fit men.”

H. Fandos, Jobs Elexlrt and Lisa ten-
ant Giro A mart lias. The party were
met at the Mexloan Central depot In
Juarez by prominent citizens and of!)
dale with a band of mnelc, and Govsr-
nor Ahnmada was escorted to the rest
denoe of Collector Benobe. At one
o'olook a number of Invited guests
from both sides of tbe river went oat
to the point where the laying of rails
wastobsgtn. Tba band played a pa
trlotlo air and then Benor M. M.
Bsuohe stopped forward and In his
happiest vein delivered a brief address.
SENOR BAUOBE’S SPEECH.
Mr. Benobe said: Sir governor
and gantlemen—I have a mission, to
me so agreeable that In vain I called to
my aid to help refuse It the Innate
conviction that on snoh a solemn oooa
sion only Inspiration and status
should speak, bat over and above my
lacking Inclination to oratory were
lifted my gratitude and esteem, both
for this city, where I have resided for
months, and for the state and my
0 mntry now flourishing and respected.
1 am, therefore, not the Inspired
oretor, brilliant and prestlged, bat the
man of sentiments, Inspired In the
progress of my country. One who
came to invite the first msglstrate of
Oblhnahna that he, taking in band the
hammer of oivlllzatlon, may drive the
fir it spike In the first rail of steel In a
new artery whloh the aotlvlty of man
opens in the fertile bosom of my coun-
Snob is my mission that I could not
dare to refuse because I believe really
that every railroad inaugurated repre-
sents a step forward for a people; aod
In this local question every railroad Is
a new Bourne of wealth and new Im-
pulse that deepens tbs roots and
foundations whloh support peaoe.
It pleases the soul to examine the
serpentine rails of steel that traverse
the remote region of our planet, mark-
ing the traits of civilization. Note
the trains, the giant offsprings of 1m
petnons speed, to announce to the peo
pie that the moment of an evolution
has arrived, universal and glorious.
Tha whistle of the locomotive le the
formidable war cry and the tall of
smoke is the shont of the giant which
marks on the horizon the waves of its
All tba elements that contribute to
tba prosperity of tbe people receive
from railroads a vigorous Impales;
when In snob contact these elements
spread themselves as If tonobed by a
myaterlons force; agrionlture, oom
meroe, mining, all Industry aud even
tha arts and letters, because all are
joined on earth as from this juncture
necessarily results universal harmony
and the supreme synthesis of oivlllza-
Gentlemen: We sre on the frontier
of tbe republic and it Is to us to
see the our rent of Immigration that
will penetrate this gateway of progress
whloh will populate and make fertile
valleys. It Is rlohes that will Impulse
our riches, the customs that will as-
slmuiato as to most civilized nations of
the globe and tha books that will
nourish us with the same wisdom that
fertilizes tbs best organized brains of
cultivated Europe. Through this port
ws will set penetrate both work aod
Ufa and by that we will see go out the
announcement of our civilization
whloh will spread through the world
the glorified name of Mexioo. ( Ap-
It le on this aooonnt that I said be-
fore that this moment Is supreme and
why I add now that this day la to Oal
ded Juarez, to the state and to tbs
country In general and sorely It will
afford ample satisfaction to the spirit
of thsoblef exsoutlvs of this republic,
the author or paaoe to whose shade is
due these triumphs as It will to the
oousolsnoe of our popular governor of
this state, who ere the God-fathers of
this baptism of valuable enterprise,
full of benefits. In the first dsy of
his ssoond term of bis progressiva ad
ministration th's aot of Inauguration
seems most important as the provi
dantlal pres sage of nsw triumphs for
Having explained the motives that
brooght me here In representation of
the Rio Grande, Sierra Madra & Poolflo
railroad whloh I congratulate on Its
gigantic endeavor, I have accomplish
ad my mission.
Sir Governor: An enterprise, that
brings to onr oountry a powerful ale
ment of life, invitee you solemnly,
through me, to fix With this spike of
gold tha first rail of the Rto Grande,
Sierra Madra & Pacific railroad. In
the name of the oivlllzatlon and pro-
gress of Mexioo fix, sir, that rail as
behind our endeavor Is tbe acclamation
of the people that beholds yon.
GOVERNOR AHUMADA RESPONDS.
In responding to Senor Bauohe,
Governor Ahnmada spoke eloquently
of what the railroads had dons for
Mexioo and said It afforded him great
pleasure to aid la forwarding the oon-
straotlon of these powerful developers
and civilizers of hls country. Progress
and prosperity ha said, went hand in
hand with railroads and this new road
would open up and result in the de
velopment of a portion of Mexioo rich
to natural wealth. Tha governor said
that this was not tha first time be had
driven tbe first spike for a railroad
destined to add to the wonderful pros
perlcy of his wonderfal country.
Governor Ahnmada paid a high oom
pllmeut to Judge Orosby, the original
promoter of the Oorralttoe road. He
said the people of Juarez and the ooun-
try to be traversed by the new toad
owed Judge Crosby a debt of gratitude
for bte tireless efforts, resulting in
making this enterprise a success.
At tbe oonolnsion of hls remarks a
hsndscme gold plated eplke bearing
the inscription: “First spike placed
upon the oonstraotlon of the line
known as the Rto Grande, Sierra
Madre and Paoitto by Sr. Colonel Mi-
guel Abumade, governor of the state of
Ohthuahue, Mexioo,” was plaoed on
tbe rail and the governor drove It In.
Judge J. F. Orosby as tbe original
promoter of tbe road drove a eplke,
and a third one was driven in by Gen-
eral Manager Ramsey. Judge O. N
Buckler and Juan S. Hart eaoh drove
a spike. All of tbe drivers hit the
orosetles as often as they did the
spike, with the exception of Jadge
Buckler who diove hie Iron home w.th
the precision of a veteran section hand.
DINNER AND WINE.
At 2 o’olook General Manager Ram
sey and hie guests adjourned to tbe
Mexloan Oentral depot dining hsll,
■here the party did full jastloe to a
handsome collation. When the wine
was reaohedand champagne corks ware
poppleg General Manager Ramsey in
a neat speeob presented to Governor
Ahamada the gold spike he had drlveo
In the Oorralltos road an hoar bsfore,
bat which had been withdrawn and a
steal spike substituted.
In accepting the pretty herald of
prosperity and progress Gov. Ahamada
said he desired to reiterate the sentt
meats he expressed at the driving of the
spike. He Invited those present to
meet him at Oorralltos when tbs road
reaohed that point, to dine and drink
wine with him In the mountains when
the road started on Its maroh over the
grand Sierra Madra.
Senof L'osoclado Osorno, chief of
Mexloan boundary commission, made
a ueat speech In the course of wbloh
he referred to the dark days before
peaoe, progress and prosperity had
been established In Mexioo by Presi-
dent DIez. He reviewed the progress
of Mexioo under tbe administration of
President DIez. He viewed with pride
the active steps the noble state of
Ohlhuahaa was taking in imitation of
the enterprise and progress of the
