an item of news recently pnlilishe I,
stating briefly that lie- senate com-

inspectors of steam vessels to regulate

-paper says that the item did not
state that the proposed congressional
action Is Iho result of * an agitation
begun by a determined woman red

who was driven to desperation by the

The steamboat owners and captains
also objected to the proposed restric-

This shows what one determined

suggests a way for El Paso to get
rid of the shrieking whistles that tor-
ture sleep in this city every night.
The railroad yards where the most
noise Is made by parting whistling

of the residence portion of the city

in the near future these yards will be
