DAIRY ORDINANCE IS
NOT PASSED OVER VETO
Mayo: Submits Annual .Message Re-
commending $500,000 Bond Is-
sue—To Be Qpnsidered at Ad-
journed Session Monday.
TO ARBITRATE STREET SPEAKING
A ROMANTIC COURTSHIP
The annual message of Mayor
Sweeney was delivered to the council
yesterday morning, each alderman re-
ceiving a copy. Chief among the rec-
ommendations of the mayor Is that for
the $500,000 bond issue for improve-
ments, and it is for the purpose of de-
ciding this recommendation that the
council will meet Monday morning In
an adjourned session. The dairy ordi-
nance veto stood, and the council
made no attempt to pass the ordinance
over the veto.
Alderman DeC.roff voiced a belief
that the chief of police would be ex-
ceeding his authority in notifying
property owners to install fire escapes,
and in tiling complaints against those
who failed to do so, but Mayor Swee-
ney said that the chief would have
ample authority, and the head of the
police department would be so In-
structed, regardless of whether the
council passed an order.
Following the reading of the min-
utes, Mayor Sweeney presented his
message, with the request that it be
read by the Monday meeting. He re-
ported that the viaduct plans for the
structure to be erected by the G. H. &
S. A. and the E. P. & S. W. had been
received and that work would be
started before May 2nd.
The sidewalk report of the city en-
gineer was received and the city clerk
was authorized to notify the property
owners that if the improvements were
not made within sixty days, actions
would be instituted by the city to com-
pel compliance with the order.
No comment was elicited by the
reading of the.veto to the dairy ordi-
nance, and the regular schedule was
carried out. In discussing the failure
of an attempt to pass the ordinance
over the mayor's veto, one of the al-
dermen said that it had been conclud-
ed that it could not be done.
Dr. Anderson Recommends.
There were a number of recommen-
dations relative to the water supply-
contained in City Physician Ander-
son's report. He thought the storage
tank on the hill should be cleaned
once a week while the river plant is
working, with daily inspections, and
constant analyses of the water.
He recommended that measles,
whooping cough and chicken pox be
placed on the quarantine list. Mayor
Sweeney promised to draft an ordi-
nance covering this feature.
Thirty deaths for the week were re-
ported; three diptheria cases; three
of scarlet fever and one of typhoid
fever. Inspections were made of 50
dairies and 137 meat markets, and 8.,
pounds of meat were condemned. In-
vestigations were made of 29 com-
plaints, and 14 visits to city patients
were made, with 47 office patients

Chief Holland submitted the follow-

Then, upon a motion of Alderman
Blumentha! that the police chief be no-

questioned the authority of that offi-
A new adobe building was ordered
elected near the pest house.
The petition of Highland Park resl-
'* dents for better police protection was
passed for future settlement.
Aide reran Robinson reported the pe-
tition of a lady who was compelled to
v walk eight blocks to get to a crossing
in East El Paso because the G. H.
had placed barbed wire fences along
its right of way. An order was en-
tered for the railroad to put up a
good crossing at Brown street and to
cover its ditch at that point.
The chairman of the streets ana
grades committee also reported that
Greer had been unable to get a tele-
phone installed in the Little Plaza
and that the hackmen’s dispute had
not been settled. Mayor Sweeney said
he would give them one more week,
and if they could not adjust their dif-
ferences in that time he would compel
them to move from that stand.
On a biil for $270 from the library.
Alderman DeOroff said that he could
not understand why the library could
not be self-supporting, with its allow-
ance from the city. The mayor un-
MRS. FRANK HEAP SLACK.
A romance which had its inception
during the progress of the famous
globe encircling tour of William Jen-
nings Bryan and party, three years
ago. came to light at Boston a few
days since as the result of the mar-
riage of Mrs. Marguerite Bock, a
charming and wealthy young widow
of Fort Wayne. Ind., and Frank Heap
Slack, a prominent eastern million-
aire, who has extensive cotton mill in-
terests at Fall River and other points
Both were invited to join the party
at San Francisco and first met in that
city. As the tour progressed through
the Hawaiian Islands, to Japan anti to
Russia, the friendship which hat] been
manifested between the two rapidly
assumed a different form. At Stock-
holm, Sweden, Mrs. Beck, tired and
wearied by the continuous round of
ceremony incidental to the trip, made
the sudden announcement that she
would return to the states. Her mil-
lionaire lover also developed it strong
determination to return to the land
of Uncle Sam, and together they made
the homeward journey. On their ar-
rival on American soil she continued
her journey to her Fort Wayne home,
while he returned to Fall River. True
love never did run smoothly anyway,
ami it. seemed that the pretty romance
was permanently blighted through an
estrangement which developed as the
result of a petty grievance.
Upon Mrs, Beck's decision to resume
her musical studies at Boston she re-
turned to that city and took up her
abode at the Hotel Nottingham in tne
fashionable Back Bay district. One
day she received an Invitation to a
dinner party. As late would have it,
the Fall River millionaire was invited
to the same party. The two met and.
naturally, as might lie expected, the
old-time relations quickly ensued.
Within an hour's time after the meet-
ing they had listened to the last word
in the ceremony which pronounced
them man and wife.
The groom, in addition to Ills New
England holdings, owns an extensive
estate in Old England, bequeathed to
him at the death of his father. The
bride is independently wealthy.
derstood that, the bill in question was
for some book racks ordered quite a
good while 'before.
Alderman Hewitt, was given authori-
ty to locate several new fire plugs In
East El Paso addition,
A. P. Coles wanted permission to
put some steps down from the side-
walk into the basement of the White
House building, with a view to util-
izing the basement for a barber shop,
The mayor and the city engineer
spoke of using flip sidewalk as the
place for placing underground wires,
etc., and the mayor said an ordinance
should lie drawn covering that, ques-
tion for all time to come. He said it
was only a question of time before ail j
the wires would have to be placed tin-1
derground, and the city engineer re-
ferred to the policy of Eastern cities
in utilizing for public utilities the
space under sidewalks.
The ordinance regulating street
speaking was placed on final passage

Will Be Well Under Way and a
Large Army of Laborers Will Be
