Responding to the call of the prescient of the (’Ivie I.eagir?, Miss Anna Kelly, the members of the executive coal nil (tee of the league met yesterday morning at the Lime of * apt. and Mr*. Wnt. Kelly on Washington street to <li.ss the atrcet oiling situation and consider whether it is satisfactory so far The work is now nearly completed, there remaining only parts of Elizabeth and Washington streets to final!. Th* oiler was at work on these today when the rain caused a cessation of the work.
It is expected that the Magnolia Oil Company, as soon as the work la entirely finished, will request the payment f the first installment on Mie work, which wa* agreed upon at $ 1200.
Those constituting th? executive committee, all of whom wert* present at the meeting, were Mrs. Hawkins, vice provident of the league, Mr*. Morris, Mrs. Kenedy..Mrs. R. B. Creamer, .Mrs. Noah Allen and Mrs. Fer-tfandes, besides tlu* president, Mi>« Anna Kelly.
Some of he ladies were emphatically of the opinion that the oiling is not sat factory. Others t lion gilt there had not been sufficient time; for the new oil to be tested, and hop- ! ti it might prove efficacious. All j criticised the work, however. It wa* decided finally that the league sh uld take couths*-1 of a number of the prominent business men before coming to a decision in the mat er. The meeting was adjourn***! subject to call by title president. As the regular meeting of the Civic league, will be beld Friday It is probable
th * matter will not be taken up again until then.

Visit Padre Island Several Get In Voluntary Bath*
A number of delegates to the electoral college at Matamoras from Guerra we.ne the guests of Alderman Teofilo Ortxell yesterday. They went to Bt. Isabel on the morning train, and after having dinner at Jefferson Inn, all boarded the little launch and sailed ovwr to Padre Island All but four of the party took a dip in the Gulf—i—and thereby hangs a tale. The party that did go in bathing resolved that those who did trot go in voluntarily should be treated to a good ducking. As the party starred . to return a norther blew up and it was decide to put back to Padre. The men that did not go bathing I were induced Ko enter the little skiff on the pretext that it would be unsafe for so many in the launch. So J the victims piled into the skiff. Thy had no sooner seated themselves,
I when the water began ta wash. in. They became frightened, thinking the bhat might sink. While they I w’ere thus thinking a wave came along and upset the skiff, landing j them in the bay. There i svas a live- I ly time for a minute, bitt when they discovered that thr* water was not very deep, their fear disappeared. J The party returned to the Point J soaked, as they were caught in the heavy rain.
