FEBt V 19ia-THURSDAY EVSmNG. ens on us IRIWO CASES WRIT AiJAINST GAS COJIPAXT ISSUED BY JCftGE FOIST. IE ens SUPPLY^ POOR SERVICE PIPES CAUSED LOSSES, COVRT SAYS. CHT of lola Restrained from Cntting Off Water Supply—Small Increase only for Fuel. The littlp city of Gas came out con- querer in two legal skirmishes in the disfrict court today. It won a contest with the Natural Gas company and a Blackstonlan battle with the city of Tola. Wherefore the people of the emelter town are excoortingly delighted tonight. In both cases the issues had already been submitted to Judge Foust and only awaited his ruling. The first matter taken up was the application of S. K. Flemming on behalf of the City of Gas, for a temporary writ of Injunction requiring the Natural Gas company, successor to the Taylor Fuel Light and Po-ver Company and the Deming Investment Company, to continue its gas service and without collecting an additional {fc deposit on meters and without an increase in rates. The company contended that It was operating the plant a loss and that it could not furnish the.gas at the present rate. 25 cents per 1,000 feet It also iosisted that it was not responsible for any obligations of the Taylor company and could, therpfore, require a meter deposit if It wished to do BO. The plaintiff, Mr. Flomlng, contended that there was no necessity for a raise In rates; no authority for requiring an additional deposit and ask^d that the company be restrained from cutting oft the gas servitfe without giving reasonable and legal notice The contentions on both sides vrtf6 supported by a mass of affldavlts, statements and legal citations by the attorneys. In passing upon the matter. Judge Foust found for Gas City and iBBued a temporary writ of Injunc tion restraining the defendant company from In 4ny way interfering with or Bhutttdff off the gas supply now being furnished to th-; inhabitants of Gas City and without an increase in rates. "^In his opinion, •which is exhaustive, and comprehensive, covering many similar cases, the iudce declares that according to the Ga.": Company's own statement the losses it is incurring is due to its ov.-n failure to keep ita lin^s in proper shape. In an affidavit the company sliows that durine December there was a loss of 2,9S1,280 cubic feet of feas on account of leaky;, oervic-' pipes. • This was the fault oj'j the company and not of the city, thj' court held, and had the lines been proper shape the company's bill, d the supplying company the Portland'' Pipeline jConmany, would have be-m decreased In the sum of (745 and instead of suffering a loss, the Natural Gas company would have shown a profit of bver JlOO for the month cited The hearing on the application to make the writ of injunction permanent will be held later on, the 4ate Ijeing indefinite. In the second case in whiA Oiy City was concerned, the court Issu ' an injunction permanently restralim Ing the City of lola from shutting Off! the water supply and permitting tola to make an Increase in cost charge of but four mills per thousand gallons. The court allowed this lncrcas<>:l charge for fuel on account of the advance in the price tjf fuel oil with which the boilers at the lola water plant are fired. The City of lola had brought suit against Gas City, seeking to be allowed to charge an increabe of one cent per thousand sallons on the water fur nished Gas City. It, was alleged that the 20-year contract which lola has vlth Gas City was contingent on the fnel supply, ogpecially gas. and tfie city let op as Its chief reason for asking the Increased rate, the fact that tbe gas haa been practically abandon- ied as fnel for the furnaces at the THE WEATHER. .

UNION PUNT IS REBII1L0IN6 SRICK PLANT WHICH WAS nrR>- ED GOING IT AGAIN. EilHEtlED H m Ri EIGHT PAGffiS MEXirAN GA LOOTSAND SON MUTINIES, UP TOWN. UPRISING IS HSIIMSr MAOElte A»ERlCANS ARE REPORTED HELD AS PRISONERS IVKCHOUT FOOD. V BuIIdinjr to be Better and Latest Kind of Machinery Installed—.>'«'w • Capacity 10,000 Dally. This morning, almost three weeks to a day since the machine and engine bnildings of the Union Brick Ouppaiiy's plant, two miles east of nfevclty, were entirely destroyed by fir6, the 'rebuilding of the plant was begun. Hardly bad the last embers of the fire died before tbe officials of the company were figuring on the best manner of rebuilding it, and the ar- ranfements under way were finally completed when the contrtkt for all the carpenter work was let yesterday to E. S. I/ong. the contract for cleaning the engine and boilers given to the United Iron Works and the work in put^g in the machinery and fonn- dationi of the buildings assigned' to tbe bruk plant force under the sup- eisvlslon'of Superintendent E. S. Hnr- loek. The work of rebuilding as began in earnest this morning and the Officials of the company are planning to carry It forward so speedily that the plant can begin making brick by March 1. The fire put out of employment alwut fifty men. part of whom are noW temporarily employed in putting In the foundations and setting the machinery. When the plant resumes operations, the greater part of tbe old force will come back. As the plant had a million brick on lisnd at the time of the fire and was able to fill all It^ orders, the employment of a number of loaders has been uninter rupted. The new biiildings will be a considerable improvement over the old ones, and new machinery of .the latest type will be installed, so that tbe capacity of the plant will be incriase'd 10.000 bricks per day. making the output for one day 75,000 bricks instead of 65,000 as in the pas*. The new buildings will occupy same sites and space but will be more modem and stronger. The old buildings wf-re frames, neither strong nor sight ly. but the new ones will be covered with corrugated iron. Both the burn- .fd buildings will be rebuilt from the Jsrcund up and several helpful chan- 's made in' the dryers which the did not touch. VThe fire at the plant occurred on, ie morning of .Tanuary 7. Only two „jen were present at the plant at the •Hme it started and when they discovered the blaze It was beyond their power to control. "The loss was about 125.000 to $30,000. \!artially covered by insurance. In the sum of $14,000. The Union Brick plant was built in 1902 and has been running continuously ever since, being one of the few thiit operate4during 1911. George E. Nicholson is president and Frank icholson general manager. lOU FREE FROM PELlJI6l|i>ll Gnex to Home of Son In Ptttsbarg. At last, so far as anybody knows, lola is free from pellagra. Mr. Story, the only patient remaining in the city after the departure of Mrs. Southwick for the hospital at Rosedale several months ago a day or two ago quietly and without warning left the pest, house, where he has been confined, and went, presumably' to the home of a son in Pittsburg, Kansas. Mr. Story went without warning to anybody, even his attending physician and it is believed that he did so because of the fear Ohat he was to be iea as inei lor me lumaceit «i sent to the poor house. The cold Smmplng station and that the coat of- -weather had brought great relief to - • - - • — '«--• Mr. Storr and the nhysician who at- fael Jiad increased so that the expense of delivering the water to Gas City ^as greatly In excess of what it was when there was plenty of gas. The court held that, since lola was using oil for fuel, it could only ask the increase Jn the price of that fuel. However should there be another Increase, the case may be reopened and lola may ask to be permitted to Increase its rate to correspond with the advance in the cost of any fuel used. Mrs. Fern Hamner was granted a divorce from her husband. G. W. Hammer, in tbe district court today. Tbe plaintiff alleged general neglect: Mrs. lanra -n'ilktts. of Harpe, filed suit for divorce. She charges^ that when she married Mr. Wllletts, she bad some money.-but declares that be squandered it through loose business management. Depite the fact that he Is capable of earning good wages, Mrs. WIHett says Mr. Wlllett falls to provide for her. She asks to be awarded alimony In addition to a decree of divorce. Mr .and Mrs .William Bickford of Lamed. Kans., came in last night for a visit of several days.with Mr:-and Mrs. 0. W. Holmes and otber friends. Mr. Story and the physician tended him called only occasionally. WSien he went to see the patient recently, the latter bad gone. The boys' club of the local Y. M. C.

Accurate » Hepoi^. (By the As.»ocloteil PreBsl El Paso, Tex., Feb. 1.—At noon the killing of eight persons and the wound ing of nine now in the hospitals, in the course of the revolt in Juarez had been verified. Fifteen/ persons, Including four Americans—three men and one woman—have been imprisoned in the Casino saloon without food since yesterday, accrding to a telephone message from Americans. The mutineers wlio seized Juarez and looted the town, were-split into small bands today, each recognizing only its individual leader. Further trouble Is oelleved inevitable, as the malcontents declared themselves adherents of Eniiliano Zapata who is in revolt against President Maderp. They assert they will fight any TtJrce sent to recapture the town. Several railroad bridges south of here have been destrp}'ed. All factions of the Mu- tlneefs declare that .Madero must resign. At noon the various leaders met in tbe plaza lo appoint administrative officers. Santiago Mostas was chosen Provisional Mayor. Col. Estrada, deposed commander of tbe garrison, and Chief of Police Gallo were released today. The Juarez Jail is standing wide open, uot a prisoner in it. The mutineers are using the military barracks for their prisoners. Nearly all of the residents of Juarez have fled to ElPaso. The leaders of the revolt declare :hcy liave little fear of attack, and claim to have been informed that the garrison^, at Torreon and Shihuahud ulHo revolted last night. All wires leading south have been cut and it is Impossible to verify these .-eports. Trouble Began Latit NIgbt. The revolt of the Mexican garrison ebgan at 6:30 yesterday evening. In half an hour the mutinous troops were in possesion of the city. Looting and promiscuous shooting prevailed for hours. Shortly after midnight an Italian surgeon holding a commission in tbe .Mc.vlcan army who had Just arrived in El Paso from Juarez declared that he had counted 15 dead, including,two Americanii—a man and a boy 12 years. The boy was lying In the street. He had been shot through th breast. Most cf the dead, be said were near the cus lorn house. C. F. Davis, reporter for a Memphis newspaper, was in Colonel Estrada's headquarte'S telephoning when tbe uprising occurred and he was placed under arrest. The. guard who was placed over him shot in the head. When another soldier appeared, Davis hit him over the head and escaped, running down an unllgbted alley with bullets whizzing about him. He re- l>orted that a man whom he knew as "Levy" and another man whose name he did not know, were arrested with him. Passenger Trnld Detained. A passenger train about to depart over tho Mexican Central for Chihuahua and. the city of Mexico was detained by the malcontents. ; Four troops of cavalry from Fort Bliss were rushed to the American bank of the Rio Grande to protect citizens, and preserve neutrality. Guards were stationed at the street car and the railroad bridges and at the two bridges at the smelter, a mile west of El Paso. Refugees were assisted across tbe bridges and the fordable places along the river. As near as can be ascertained tbe uprising was due to a report, printed in a Chihuahua newspaper, stating that General Pascnsl Orozco, one of the leaders and idols of the Madero revoluMbn, had resigned^is military position at Cbibuahua and to the discharge of 100 men of tbe Juarez garrison. The dismissal of tbese troops was Uken as confirmation of tbe Orozco report. ' It was reported that troops were being embarked at CblUbabua for Juarez. The trip ordinarily requires seven hours. Upon hearing-^ls. the mutineers declared that they would fight the "Inyaders." Their voices rang with cries of "down with Madero" and "Viva Zapata." The latter, EJmlllaao ZapaU was a leader of the rebellion in tbe south against DJaz while Madero was fighting in tbe north. Colonel Augustin Estrada commander of the garrison, and senor Oal lo. chief of police, had lonjg been on the lookout for trouble, bat their sus- pic'rns became less acute after the arrest M Colonel Reyes, and tbe re> volt took them by eurprise. As soon as they were safely behind tho vara the mutineers threw off restraint.
