Will Paggi. one of the leading citizens of South Austin, stated yesterday that almost every day there were picnics held at the springs. The controversy between the water and light commission continues to be the leading subject of discussion on the streets. While the discussion is at Its height the big towers which furnish light for the citizens at night are dark.

Chief of Police Morris stated yesterday afternoon that the turning oil of the tower lights worked a hardship on the police force. It Is hard to find places at night, and the force expects trouble with thieves and robbers, who will naturally come here as a good tie Id for operation. As yet there have been no reports of robbery or hold ups, liut such may be expected any night. fThe police force is limited at any rate, And with th citjt ia. darkness It will take increaned vigilance to keep the town in order. The members of the Young Men's Christian association are taking a great deal of interest In the contest among the boys, who are trying to get members.

The reported cases of keeping a disorderly place, as preferred against Charles Stark, the saloonkeeper, who lives a few miles south of town, are reported to be based on entirely erroneous grounds, as Mr. Ptark has in no wlBe conducted any sum ptaces at any time and he enjoys the friendship and good will of all who know him. There is a large assortment of baskets to be found at Olsen's, the Florist, 105 East Flfeenth street.- Bob Penick of this city has received a letter from his brother at Baker City, Oregon, stating that snow fell in that state last week.
