Complaints are being made by residents in the vicinity of Menger's Soap factory at the constant firing of revolvers during the night.  They desire to know where the police have been keeping themselves.

Bids will be opened in the mayor's office tomorrow at noon for putting the new roof on the Alamo.  On one portion of the old roof there is now a young hackberry tree, grape vine and other vegetation growing.

A dictaphone was used in San Antonio courts for the first time this week to record procedings.
