Hard Fakk. Every passenger who
goes or co Hits from 8u Louis over the
International and Iron Mountain routes
complains bitterly of the horrible
fare. Seventy five cents and some-
times one dollar is charged for a
meal not worth a quarter. Bread and
meat and potatoes poorly prepared
slop co flee brown sugar and black mo-
lasses is not the kind of fare that peo-
ple pretending to be honest and decent
sbonld set out to hungry weary trav-
elers. A good meal hot and well pre-
pared should be set for fifty cent
and it is astonishing that railroad
pretending to be first class and anxious
to attract travel should not see tliat
fimt class eating houses were estab
lished along their lines. People should
resent such insults and impositions by
selecting other routes or by carrying
lunches when the; travel. If the pt-
pers generally and all the people who
travel will UDite in crying down such
slop pens aa disgrace the above routes
and in inaugurating the lunch basket
system the nuisances can soon be
abated. The Statesman proposes to
do its share of the work.

readers will find the cataiu.'ue of J. H.
Gregory's well known seea bouse ad-

acts which the public appreciate.
Though the warranting is of necessity

Died In the city of Austin Texas
on the twenty-second day of December
1877 by sudden hemorrhage of the
lungs Mrs. Texana B. Oatman wife
of J. F. Oatman Esq. of Austin
daughter of the late Col. T. P. Wash-
ington and Mrs. Elizabeth T. Wash-
ington who survives her.
She was born in Alabama on the
third day of May 1848 a short time
before the family moved to Travis
county Texas.
It is not meet that the death of this
estimable lady should receive only
the cursory notice of au announcement
of the fact; and the friends who feci
deeply the bereavement may be al-
lowed to dwell with loving remem
brance on those traits of her chaiacter
which endeared her to them.
There was a gentle simple frank
ness in her daily life and conversation
that conciliated the kind regard of all
who knew her. Singularly free from
ostentation yet full of large-hearted
sympathy and of that charity that
."thinketh no evil she was always
prepared with a kind word and ready
hand to "rejoice with those who do
rejoice and weep with those who
weep." As a daughter sne was duti
ful and affectionate; as a wife loving
f lithful and domestic; as a mother
tender and kind ; as a friend constant
and trae anu as a Christian humble
consistent trusting and steadfast and
the mother brothers sisters and hua
bund who survive her will long cnerisu
in their beart of hearts a fond recollec-
tion of the sweetness of her character
and deportment in every relation in
life which will in time assuage the
deep grief with which they now re
member her and her sudden departure
from them; and her little boy now too
young to uuderstaud the great loss he
hH Hustamed. will rejoice in alter
a a . 1
years to stand oy ner grave ana say
"Here lies my mother" ana recall
the excellencies of her character aa he
will learn them from those who knew
and loved her.
In 1871 she became a member of the
Methodist Episcopal Church South
and died in that communion; and
though from the peculiar circum-
stances of her sadden death she was
not able to tell her friends what was
her hope and trust in that supreme
hour yet she bad not deferred till
that time to say in whom she had
believed; but her faith in Christ and
hope of heaven had been for some
time berore her aeatn so irequenuy
the snbiect of her thoughts and con
versation that they who knew and
loved her rejoice even in their grief to
believe that she is sone "to be with
Christ which is far better."
Mav God enable us who survive to
follow her as she followed Christ; and
thna aanctifv their treat anltction to
our eternal good. G.
The Prospect. It is the exports
and the imports that operate on the
condition of a country causing an in-
crease or a decrease in trade and in
dustry. The country or the section
that can export the most in proportion
to what it imports or consumes irom
abroad fares the best. We have no re
liable data on which to base an opin
ion in retard to the condition of this
aection now as compared to tne past.
or as to the prospect for the future ;
bnt a brief survey of. the situation from
such facta as we have is by no means
discoursging. From the amount ot
cotton already shipped from this point
this season something over thirteen
fhonaand baler and the thousand or
more bales still on hand for shipment.
it is evident that the total cotton re-
ceipts at Austin for this reason cannot
..? . . a l 1
fall far short ll any oi wnannej cro
last season. When we consider
then that the cotton shipments from
Ttnnnd Rock and other points on
the International and the 1'ierce
railroads adjacent to Austin have been
fr greater than they were last year
ml wa at the itme time remember that
the prices have generally been a trifle
hieher this season than last we cannot

the demand for saddles promises to be

malleable iron saddle tree fork to any

improvement which took the premium
at the State fair consists in dispensing
with the wooden fork usually used ana
substituting malleable iron of great
strength and nt;lity. We guarantee the

Jfy.JMar Sir You Jiavc doait!es
seen the published vindication of my
self from a vile publication in tie -
dependent which .is.' as evcrytxHiy
knows a miserable blackmailing iheet
leeued weekly m Galveston accusing
me of venality in connection with Bur-
nett & Kilpatrick temporary lessees of
the penitentiary and asserting that I
bad drawn a note or draft on them
the consideration being the lease etc.
But for a mere reference to it by tho
statesman of this city 1 would not
have noticed ttie base sheet. . .On the
publication of that reference however
I did promptly ask Col. Henry B.
Andrews Ball Huchins & Co. and
Messrs. Burnett & Kilpatrick to explain
it. They have done so both ia print
and by letters to me.' All these parties
stamp the charges as a lie.
' The firm of J. II. Burnett & Co. as
you . know is a cotton commission
house in Galveston. For over six years
they have been my commission mer-
chants there. I have a farm In Smith
county with nearly 700 acres in culti-
vation raising on it mostly cotton and
have done so ever since the death of
my father in 1865. During nearly all
this time I have shipped cotton to J.
FT. Burnett & Co. 'and when I gave
Burnett & Kilpatrick the temporary
lease of the penitentiary backed bv a
$400000 bond (it was worth that)I did
so partly because for so many years I had
had buiness relations with the firm of
J. II. Burnett & Co. Mr. Kilpatrick
never has been nor is he now a mem-
ber of tli id firm. B. & K. and J. H.
B. & Co. are two distinct firms.'
Needing some money Col. Andrews
advanced some menus to me (as be says)
and I drew on J. II. B. & Co. at nine
ty days openly (because it was in
bank) indorsed by Andrews "against
cotton to be shipped and to be charged
to that account" etc. J. II. B. & Co.
asked for thirty day' extension at ma-
turity and it was granted ; but the
bank (Ball Hutchiugs & Co.) did not
get the telegram from Col. Andrews
and hence the draft was protested for
a few days. This is the whole story
in a nutshell a purely personal pri
vate commercial transaction; and i
would never have been nnticed by this
infamous scavenger (the ' Independents
had it not so happened that J. IL
Burnett one of the members of the cot-
ton house was Also one of the firm of
Burnett & Kilpatrick lessees of the
penitentiary.
Surely if tho Governor had any in-
terest in the lease he would have con-
tinued it until 1S70 which he refused
to do though earnestly prayed for by
B. & K. and their triends. . Not only
so but bearing that malicious parties
had intimated that I was interested I
demanded an explanation from Messrs.
B. & K. and obtained from them a
sworn denial of the statement.
The Attorney General the peniten-
tiary commissioners (5Iessrs. Shepard
White and Gaines) and Hon. A. J.
Peeler (attorney for the State in the
matter of re-leasing the penitentiary)
all know that I gave written per-
emptory orders to Messrs. B. & K. that
they must obey the regulations and
particularly that tbey must furnish the
necessary clothing for winter wear to
the convicts as required on pain of
immediate deprival of the lease. Fur-
ther than this I have by this letting
of a new lease just made saved to the
State thousands of dollars obtaining
under said new lease over $50000 per
annum or over a quarter of a million
dollars for the five years that the lease
has to run. And my office shows that
I have already saved to the StUe
by my temporary lease thirty
thous8ridtoliar8j " appropriated by
tbLegislaturelor the purpose
of resumption wnlcli' I might
have used beside the twenty nine
thousand naid bv Messrs. B. S? K
fthe latter paving all the expenses-vD.f
the State officers at the penitentiary)
asrainst twenty thousand dollars only
Daid bv Ward. Dewey & Co. Thus it
will be seen that the State at least
does not suffer if I do by these damn
ing calumnies of designing enemies.
I am not asking any one to be my
champion. I am not on the defensive.
nor do I propose to be. My political
and personal friends have a right t
know just how it is and then I have
performed my duty and will then de
fy as I haye heretofore these enemies.
You have seen I presume the prompt
and indignant card of Col. Henry IS.

our State and to think of our -rate is
to combine in thought what is highest
and noblest in the history of the past

future.
We send our offering a represents

To Visa Grace Elmore:
Dear Madam 1 have received the
silver salver presented by the women
of Columbia and with it the letter
from yourself as their representative.
It would be unavailing to attempt an
expression of my appreciation of the
gift or my sense of gratef nlness for tbe
honor done me. I am not insensible
however of the fact that yon place too
high an estimate upon my services
for my nature must have been caJ.ous
indeed if I had not responded to
Carolina's call with every energy of my
mind and every tbrob of my heart.
Whatever of assistance I hare been
able to contribute to tne relief of your
State from the svila of misgovern ment
was rendered to people bound to those
who sent me here by every tie of
kindred of interest of desthless mem-
ories and enduring sympathies.
I shall treasure tbis. beautiful gift
through life as a memorial of South
Carolina's new birth and of te too
generous tribute paid to me by ber
daughters for tbe aid it waa my priv
ilege to render in the time of ber dis-
al tinmiliatirtn - ' '

With sincere thanks to yon and to
tboae whom you represent I am most
respectfully and truly yours. .
The reason why Boto persists in
its rationalism is very plain. Tbe Bible
says that ttralKht is tbe way" while
Uosioi streets are crooked ; and If the
dilemma is prtrsttted of choosing be-
tween the statements of tbe Bible and
the streets of Boston the peopie are teo
loyal to give np tbe plan ol tbeir city.
If the Bible had said that the way of
virtue is a crooked path Cotton would
have at once established itself as tbe
headcjuitcr cf the C-iisti-a religion.

During tbe past week business in se
curities has been unusually ught at
tributablc ia all probability to the
holiday season and consequent relax a
tion from business. The quotations of
last report will therefore be in many
instances repeated.
Bonds continue to be held firm at
quotations the views of buyers re
ceiving no encouragement from
holders and we know ot no transac
tions to report.
btate warrants have been readily
taken at prices quoted but the issue
ior this montn win De uiceiy to give
all the supply the immediate demand
requires and a decline in price will be
m order.
Land certificates are quiet without
any visible weakening in priees. The
supply of all classes is ample for the
spring demand and we look for un
usual activity in this branch ere long
Approved fee accounts are in jood
demand with a slight improvement in
figures although buyere occasionally
show reluctance in yielding to tbe de
mand of holders.
Approved pension claims have again
improved in demand and the opinion
of doubtful legislation is less generally
expressed than heretofore.

ply and quotations of laat report are re

Some things can be overdone. It is
well enough for a ciroas company to
wnd its gilded wagons through the
town to excite ia the minds of tbe peo-

span with a new hearse and waving
plumes through the Tillage In the hope

The number of native Christians
China is from 1200 to 1300.
. Forty years ago missionaries were
eaten by the Fnians. Now. 40.000
young Fijians attend Sunday school.
There are over 1000 young men'

probably as many more on the other

Tbe number of converts to Christi
anity from heathenism now in our mis-

Providence Rhode Island ought to
be dubbed the city of missions. With-
in a few months no less than $100000
has been raised in it to pay missionary
debts. In May last the Baptist Mis-

After a careful inquiry among a num

Gen. Skobeleff is the idol of his sold
iers. One afternoon in November bis
troops were massed near their encamp-
ment with" arms in bands and with
spades to intrench the ground they were
about to take; Stretcher-bearers in a
group at the rear a suggestive but un-
pleasant sight; a battery of mitrailleuses
bundled up like so many human beings
to keep oat the damp and in front of
the troops the little body of picked
men each with bis shovel his rations
and plenty of ammunition who were
to make tbe first rush across use the
bayonet and then throw it aside for the
spade and endeavor to cover in time to
resist the attack of the returning Turks.
Gen. Skobeleff dismounted and told
the men Just what he expected of them
that they were not to storm tbe works
of Plevna but only to run forward and
take the piece of ground tbey knew
perfectly well in front of tbe road and
to bold it nntil they had works thrown
up. lie cautioned them as many were
yonng soldiers sent out from tbe re-
serves to fill tbe great gaps in tbe ranks
not . to advance too far but to mind
exactly what the officers told tbem
lie would be with tbem biaself and
would direct the movement personal-
ly. As tbe men passed they all received
encouraging words and tbey went by
smiling at tbe gooa-natured chafx frvm
tbe general who called to them by
name remarked on their new boots
which be said were like those of a
Spanish don and told tbe muiidaos

K-ltorl-l Note.
Wife-beaters are to be flogged on tbe
bare back in California.
The Pod credits a paragraph to "the
late Senator Morton's organ." What
does be want of an organ? We
thought they used harps over there.
Blaine says neither Hayes nor any
other man can disintegrate tbe Repub-
lican paity. Butler says if Hayes does
not surrender at once there will be a
grand breaking up of parties.
Geneial Butler of South Carolina
shares the opinion af General Butler
of Massachusetts regarding President
Hayes. They haven't been fully in
sympathy before since the Charleston
convention in 1SG0.
It is to be hoped the Atlantic Month-
ly will not be a milk-and-water publi-
cation hereafter though it is rather
suggestive to see that the 6 alary y
which is the Milky Wsy has been min-
gled with the Atlantic.
Says General Butler: "There cer-
tainly is a disposition on the part of
the representatives from other parts of
the country to legislate against the
East." Then these papers and people
are not wise who arc. constantly berat
ing tbe people of tbe boutb and striv-
ing to excite hard feelings against
them. .
In the partition between two of the
cells at the county jail Paducab Kea
tucky is a small round hole about an
inch aad a half in diameter. On one
aide a white man was conuned and a
negro woman on the other. The other
morning the man called the woman.
and when she looked through the hole
be spit tobacco laicc in ber eye pain
iog her very much. . Elated with tbe
sport be called ber again in the after
noon instead ol putting her eye in
range again the woman jabbed a sharp
stick through tbe bole which enter
ing his eye caused him to roar with
pain and rage. Tbe doctors think tbe
ball will haye to come out and. the
general verdict ie served him right.
Tbe following advertisement appears
in German papers : " Wanted Paulus
Melchers Doc Iheol. and formerly
Archbuhop of Cologne. He was con-
demned bv a decree of the Chamber of
Correction in Cologne dated July 28
of this year to a subsidiary punish
ment ol 30 days' liprisnmsnt for un
authorized exercise of ecclesiastical
functions. He was born at Munster
lately resident at Cologne aged 64

and tbia stature. I call on the police
authorities to watch for the said Melcb
era to arrest him when found and to
produce him before me. Cologne

rator." Imagine such an advertise-
ment for tbe Archbishop of Canter-
bury I Yet tbe Arcbbiihop of Cologne
was almost as great.
At the dinner in New York on Fore-
fathers' day tbe toast 'Not left a
purse alive in the whole 'army" was
responded to by Commodore Nichol-
son. He said in rubstance: "I will
but say a few word aad I charge you
to lay tbem to heai t for they are words
of .wisdom. Laughter. The moun-
tain rivulet winding its way through
tbe valley can be easily forded in tbe
summer but when the storm clouds
descend it becomes a mountain torrent
and rushes with retutless force.
Travelers don't then attempt to ford it.
They go to the bridges built ia the
tune ot peace every plank ol which
has been securely riveted. Tbe army
and navy are tbe ar fety bridges of this
land. Applause. J xu cannot let
tbem be sapped by tbe dry rot of neg
lect. Applause. We must take care
of tbem in peacelul times and then in
tbe storm ot war of rebellion of riot
you can depend upon tbem. I Ap

Tbe army and navy added l exas and
California to tbe Union. Last year tbe
Utile army protected civilization from
tbe savages and latrr whea tbe
sailors bad to go on shore and do
soldiers' duty tbey protected your fire

navy have always been true and loyal
and what has been tbeir reward! Our
law makers left tbem and their families
destitute for months but tbey didn't
com plain and tbey doa't now.. Tbe
sons of New England have always been
in tbe frost of battle. Now is tbe time
to encourage and strengthen the army
and navy and tbey will be to yon an
honor a glory ana a safeguard. Ap

The writer of this critique upon New
Orleans might apply it justly to Austin.
He insists that tbe opening of railways
to Texrs was tbe wisest mere to bt
Louis ever made. Tbe time is at band
when if yon do no more than secure tbe
trade of Texas you will have enough
business to support your present popu
lation. In doing this you only bave a
feeble opposition to figbt from New
Orleans to Chicago. As to New Or-
leans tba people here are disgusted
with it. -Tba only thins it can do
thoroughly and well is to get up a hum

from Ai friers to Orange on tbe babtne.
it would tbere Up the great system of
railways of Texas and at least win the
trade of one-half tbe State. - It lustily
