Judge A. B. Fall, attorney for W. C.
Greene, and Captain Charles Hunt
have returned from an extended trip
to New York.
Judge Fall while east looked after
the legal side of the organization of
the Sierra Madre Land and Lumber
company, Colonel Greene's latest un-
dertaking. the company Is organized
under the laws of Connecticut and 1b
capitalized at $16,000,000. Under Its
charter it is authorized to engage In
any kind of business that oomes to
Judge Fall says that all of the de-
tails for t}ie great work of extending
the Sierra Madre road has been com-
pleted and that within three weeks
the work, which means an expendi-
ture of $11,000,000, will be com-
menced. As all the supplies to be
used In the work will come from El
Paso, this work portends a season of
prosperity for this city and section,
such as the building of the El Paso ft
Southwestern road brought to the
“The extensfon of the road along
the route to Dedrlck means an enor-
mous amount of work and a great out-
lay of money and labor,” said Judge
Falk Ho Bays that the machinery for
two saw mills have been purchased
and are now on the road. A smelter is
to be built and the company’s cohce*-
sioni calls for factories, paper mills,
plan|ng mills and various other enter-
prises, Including a large electric pow-

doubtless before long will become a
place of considerations proportions.
The land along the line of the road Is
to be colonized for agricultural pur-
poses and sheep and cattle ranches

FOUND A FENCE.
Police Search Houce for One Stolen
Article and Find Several.
Yesterday morning Officer Powers
arrested A. Gutirrez, charging him
with theft. It was claimed that the
Mexican had stolen a phonograph rec-
ord from an El Paso street second-
hand store. To prove that Gutirrez
was guilty, he swore out a search war-
rant before Justice Marshall and1
Constable Clements wsb sent to exe-
cute it. Gutirrez lives atl 333 South El
Paso street, which Is on the corner of
El Paso and the Rio Grande river,
Clements searched the place and not
only found the grapbopbone record,
but also a graphophone and a nearly
new bicycle, and numerous other arti-
cles, which had evidently been sto-
len. It is said that several of the pet-
ty thieving of the past few montrs
will be solved by the developments
growing out of the serving of the
At their new quarters. No. 208 South
Oregon street, which they will occupy
tonight for the first time, the Salva-
tion army will give their Christmas
tree to the poor children of the city,
This part of the army’s Christmas
program was postponed from last week
because of tbe large number of bas-
kets to be distributed and the work In-
cidental to such an undertaking. But
tonight Santa Claus will play a return
engagement In this city and will hold
forth at the Salvation army headquar-
ters where three big trees are await-
ing his coming.
The new ball which the army has
just leased will afford them much more
commodious quarters than their old
home, and at the same time will be
slightly nearer the heart of the city.
One feature of the new building which
is just now worrying the Salvationists
Is seats for the new hall. The benches
In the old hail will not be nearly
enough to accommodate all their new
quarterg will hold and they will have
to secure a number of chairs.
GOOD FOOTBALL GAME.
"Aa You Like It.”
Miss Florence Gale's presentation Of
Rosalind in “As You Like It,” at the
Myar opera house last night was one
of the moat artistic pieces of acting
seen on an El Paso stage this season.
Naturally vivacious, pretty and at
■ once catching the sympathy of her au-
i dlence by her rare ability, she won
I enthusiastic applause from her hear-
ers at every turn. '
She has been called one of the most
beautiful women oh the American
stage and one of the foremost players
of Shakespearean revival and this
seems to be not far short of the truth.
Surely a more winsome Rosalind
could not be conceived.
She not only has the natural ability,
but that she has made a close study
of Shakespeare can reaotly be seen.
She has been playing Shakespeare ever
since she has been on the stage, tt Is
said, and she still does it well—and
doesn’t overdo It. Just natural, be-
coming—doing just as Shakespeare’s
Rosalind might have done In real life.
Of the other members of her com-
pany not so much can be said save of
her Othello, who has a fine voice, clear
accent and a fair conception of what
his part Is and should be.
The company came In on the S. P„
which was late and a great deal of the
play was omitted that It might not
drag out so late, but It was pruned
with such skill that the omissions
would hardly be noticed save to those
who were familiar with It. Taken as
a whole, “As You Like It” as played
by Miss Galo's company produced a
very favorable Impression upon her
It was under the auspices of the
Woman f club and a good crowd greet-
ed the raising of the curtain.

teams and while there will be a

"Why Women Sin” Tonight.
Any play that will quicken the
pulses and touch the heart strings is
surely entitled to the best patronage
that could be bestowed upon It, and
therefore tbe manifestations of genu-
ine Interest In behalf of “Why Women
Sin,” by Will C. Murphey, at attrac-
tion for tonight, can well be under-
stood. This record making and rec-
ord breaking composition of stirring
dramatic Import bears an Intimate re-
lation to a limited number of the most
powerful stage successes of a de-
cade and, owing to the novel treat-
ment of Its exceedingly moral pur-
pose, stands alone on the grounds of
originality and force. The manage-
ment have wisely refrained from al-
lowing the production of so good a
play to suffer through lack of proper
scenic equipment or a thoroughly cay-
able company to Interpret a story so
fraught with noble Impulses. The
prices are 50 and 75 cents and $1,

AN EXTRAORDINARY EVENT.
The Bull Fight Tomorrow in Juarez
With Five Bulla
There Is no doubt now but that the
bull fight across the river tomorrow
will be something out of the ordinary
kind, led by the great French mata-
dor, Felix Robert, because the bulls
have arrived and can be seen at bull
ring pens, where they present a for-
midable apearance. They are magnifi-
cent looking animals, auc., as are
seldom seen on the frontier, full of
fire and fight, just such as will com-
mand great respect and furnish gen-
A bright day on Sunday will surely
fill the bull ring to overflowing and
tickets may be scarce because a largo
crowd Is preparing to see the only
matador of the French republic.
Although the expense Incurred for
this extraordinary event is large, yet
the prices are relatively low, viz.: For
seats in boxes $1.26 and general ad-
mission 75 cents.
Tickets will be placed on sale this
morning at 10 o’clock at the bull ring
and at the Moctezuma saloon in
Juarez. This afternoon the French
matador and his company, In the full
dress of their art, will ride along the
street car lines, accompanied by a
band of music.

TO BADGE THE 8CARLET WOMAN.
(New York Sun.)
A printed circular letter, signed
with (he printed name of Charles M.
Skinner of Brooklyn, is being sent out
in large numbers through the stale
asserting that the aldermen of this
etty have now under consideration a
measure aimed at making disorderly
women In the streels conspicuous by
compelling them to wear stuffed birds
of feather millinery bh a badge of
their calling. The circular adds:
“If Imposes a fine on all street walk-
ers who neglect or refuse to comply
with the ordinance and compels ev-
ery abandoned woman who has served
a term in prison to denote the fact
by wearing a plume or aigrette. In
the Interest of morality and health, It.
is as desirable to distinguish depraved
women and keep them under police
and sanitary observation as It Is to
label saloons." The letter then went
on to appeal to the recipients to use
their Influence to secure the passage
of that ordinance.
The fact that such an appeal was In
circulation became known because of
a letter written to Mrs. Francis W.
Graham, president of the IW. C. T. U.
of this state to a friend in this city
condemning the proposition on the
ground, that the ordinance would have
the effect of not only permitting the
disorderly women to follow their call-
ing, but to advertise their shame.
City Clerk Scully said yesterday
that, so far as, he knew, there has nev-
er been introduced such an ordinance
