Onions are a very precious
commodity in this market just
now. They are retailed at the
rate of 10 cents a pound which
is fully as much if not more than
they sell for In the mining dis-

a "bar"I of interns" brings the
seller about $16.

Fourteen ILocks? Mr. G.
W. Newman of the Pennington

Banner's on Thursday brought
to this office 4 boll of cotton
having fourteen locks; it grew
on one stem and had the ap-
pearance of three bolls joined

labor of love. They may .im-

it isn't. As we don't care to
waste good ammunition on small
game the precinct officers are
let alone in their glory.
Accidents. On Monday Mr
H. H. Kerr superintendent of
the'eompress building fell from
a plank hurting his back. His
injuries arc not serious. A me-
chanic whose name we could
not learn got quite a severe fall
by the breaking of an iipperfect
plank from which he had made
a platform. He fell a distance
of ten feet landing on his head.
Dr. Lockelt dressed the wounds
and about dark the man was
out on the streets.
Organized. The Brenham

Trade was organized on Mon-
day by the election of the fol-

Bode was tried by a-jury on a
charge of assault and battery;
verdict not guilty.
A. Streckert was also tried
by a jury oa a charge of assault

mings amounted to $43.18 An
appeal was taken.
Botlrof the parties live in the
Zionsville neighborhood; they
"fell out and fit" and after that
appealed to the law.
The Knife. On Thursday
night last a serious cutting af-
fray occurred at Barter's store
in Grcenvine. It appears that
John Rcdford and a young man
Knox who lives in Columbus
had been drinking together with
others. Rcdford and Knox stcpr

Knox cut Redford in the ab

Those who arc opposed to
education can probably draw a
moral from the following: An
evening or two ago a half-
grown negro girl made a raise
of five or six dollars by putting
in practice a well conceived
and admirably executed plan to
get money without work. Mes-
dames Smith Jones Brown and
Robinson are all keeping house
in one neighborhood. Shortly
after dark the h. g. n. g. ap-
peared hurriedly at the house of
Mrs. Smith and told her that
Mrs. Jones wanted tc borrow
half a dollbr Mrs. S. like a
good neighbor sends the money
as a matter of course. The h.
g. n. g. then goes to the house
of Mrs. Jones and in the same
manner tells her that Mrs. Smith
wants to borrow hall dollar and
will send it back in the. morning.
Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Robinson
arc called upon and the same
story is successfully repeated
with the variation of a dollar in
stead of half a dollar; in this
manner a whole neighborhood
is victimized. When the ladies
meet and compare notes they
will find that they have all been
taker in and done for. The h.
n. g. managed her trick so
adroitly that she was enabled to
opera'te in at least two neigh-
borhoods and perhaps more.
This negro girl or her managers
are entitled to great credit for
Political. The moguls ol
the republican party are at outs
with each other. They ate in
the position of two cats with
their tails- tied together and
tluown pv.er'a clothes line; both
arc uncomfortable and each
accuses the other of getttng him
in that fix hence they fight.
At this time the wigwam is said
to be particularly interesting;
there the republicans meet on
common ground and discuss
matters anl things both gene-
rally and politically. The re-
cent convention was-composed
of fifty-one negroes and ten
white and as a matter of course
those who confidently supposed
that they were O. K. and got
left are dissatisfied and blame
it all on the convention;
the convention was a scientifi-
cally constructed machine and
worked as it was expected to.
The lefts are 'mad and kicking
while the rights or elects are
trying to pacify-them by swear-
ing that everything was done
on the square. The square
story don't seem to hold water.
A prominent-colored man said
openly on the streets that he
had been voting the radical
ticket for twelve years but as
the convention has seen proper
to disregard the wishes of the
people he intends to support the
democrats; th; words were en-
dorsed by the bystanders with
an exception of two; those dis-
agreeing being connected with
Savannah Carothern a colored
lady was tried before justice
McCIung and fincd-gio and the
trimmings making a grand to-
tal of jhS.75 for an assault and
battery on' the person of one
Mary Woodhurst also a color-
ed lady. The funny part about
the trial fine and trimmings is
that Savannah paid up like "a
man." The court was veil sat-
isfied with the result and Savan-
nah was well satisfied too but
her satisfaction consisted in a
knowledge of the fact that the
laws of the state f Texas could
not be violated with impunity.
It will thus be seen that while
the court and Savannah both
had satisfaction that the satis-
faction in question was of a
widely different character.
AcciDiNT. On Wednesday
morning a north bound con-
stiuclion train on the Santa Fe
ro'ad had reached a point about
nine miles from town near Wolf
creek and on a down grade a
cow was encountered on the
track ; the engine passed the
cow safely but four flat cars
loaded with railroad iron were
ditched. Mr. James W. Dallas
surveyor who is if) trje employ
of the company was thrown or
jumped from one of the flats
and broke his thigh near the
hip joint. He was brought to
town and the broken limb was
set by Dr. Ncrris Mr. Dallas
will be laid up for some time.
Mr. Snyder jumped and injur-
ed a pair of trowsers. Some
15 or 20 negroes on the train
escaped wi thout injury.
Nor Counterfeit. Friday
a negro went intp Messrs. Marr
tin & Ncibuhr's store and asked
change for $20 bill; he was given
a new $ 10 U. S. treasury silver
certjfjcatp and two J5J bills.
He then went to another store
and tendered the $o certificate
in payment for a purchase
but the storckccperpronounced
it cpunterlct and a teport waq
started that the firm had paid a
negro a gio counterfeit bill and
had afterwards taken it back.
The certificates are as good as
treasury notes or coin arid thp
whole trouble arose from the
pa'rtics not being familiar with
that class of paper.
A representative ol the Ban-
nek was in Giddings on Tuesday
and Wednerday. Business
seemed to be brightening up
and cotton coming in at the
rate of from fifty to seventy-five
bales per day and is being pur-
chased by merchants at 10 to
10 1-4 cents there being no reg-
ular cotton buyers located there.
The interest in the congress-
ional race seemed to be absorb-
ing all other political issues be-
ing apparently neglected. A
Shepard club of 96 members
some of them greenbackers has
been organized and every man
no matter what his politics are
will vote for Shepard is admit-
ted as a member. The friends
of Shepard are working very ac-
tively and the prospects now
are that Jones' 700 majority in
Lee county will be very mater-
ially reduced if not entirely
There has been a goodly
number of new houses erected
during the past year. The
members of the Giddings Turn
Vcrein arc negotiating for five
acres of land near town and
contemplate the erection of a
building 40 x So feet in size to
be used as j hall Jor dancing.
The grounds will be set in shade
trees jnd laid out in the shape
of a park for pleasure purposes.

tance of education supports a

On Wednesday at 10 o'clock
the convention for the 26th sen-
atorial district met at the court-
house organized by the elec-
tion of Capt. B. F. Dunn of
Fayette as chairman after
which Maj. Woods Moore of
Bastrop was nominated by 'ac-
clamation for senator for the
district composed of Lee Fay-
ette and Bastrop counties. The.
nomination gave general satis-
tion. Delegates from Lee and Fay-
ette counties then organized a
district convention by the elec-
tion of Hon. Joel Robinson of
Fayette chairman. -Nominations
being declared in order
Hon. Travis Shaw and 'Mr.
Westbrook both of Lee coun-
ty were nominated and two bal-
lots taken resulting each time
as follows: Shaw 12 West-
brook 16. A conversation was
held between Shaw and West-
brook and both agreed to with-
draw whereupon A. Haidusek
of Fayette was nominated by
acclimation for. floater.

A Suggestion. The nomina-
tions made on Wednesday by
the republicans seem to be far
from giving satisfaction to "che
party." A representative of the
Banner ju a conversation with
half a dozen leading German
citizens some of them standard
democrats ascertained that in
their opinion a joint movement
on the pstt of white men of this
county irrespective of party
affiliations would be welcomed
by them and in their opinion
by all who arc in favor of oust-
ing the present courthouse of-
ficials uho hold office by virtue
of the negro vote. We merely
make this suggestion as one
worthy of the consideration of
every conservative man who
desires to sec a change in coun-
Sneak Thieving. One night
last we'ek Col. Henry Muller of
the Volksbote was robbed of a
keg of Herrings. He took them
home and using some of them
for supper had'the keg put out
on the back gallery; in the
morning they were non est.
Trje premises of Mrs. Giesecke
near the brewery were invaded
and an out door pantry was
broken ppen and an assortment
of preserves carried away.
Wednesday night the hen house
at Mr. A. W. Lindcmann's was

Pursuart to call a meeting
was held at the courthouse on
Saturday afternoon at which
some sixty or more gentlemen
were present a large rcpesenta-
tion being from Independence
Mr. Fred Rice president of the
C. and M. railroad failed to put
in an appearance.
The meeting was called to
order and Captain Williams was
made chairman and Harry
Mr. Davis oflndependcnce
being called upon favored the
extension of the road via Inde-
pendence; the distance was only
20 1-2 miles and a good route.
The road bed is already built
from Navasota to Washington
and will be riven to company.
The J5I00.000 demanded by the
company is a large sum but
distributed among the people
of the three places Brcnham
Washington and Independence
would be small considering the
benefits; favored building the
road; in fact it must be built as
the road now stands it amounts
to but little it must be extend-
Capt. Clay thought the best
way to get it was to sec what
he people would give; he was
willing to give S500 when com-
pleted to Independence. Lum-
ber was worth S 10.50 at Nava-
sota: at Brenham $ 1 7.
Capt. Williams thought the
road should be built to Bren-
ham. Independence and Wash-
ington would do their part; they
were determined to have the
road? he would giye right of
way through an 800 acre farm
Judge McAdoo favored rail-
roads the proposed road would
be a gre.it lumber route; thought
the extension indespensible.
Maj. Bryan as an old Texas
veteran wished to see the road
built but was unable to aid the
Col. Law titer favored the
road; didn't understand Mr.
Rice's proposition; thought gioo
000 with right of way exhor-
biUnl; the right of way depot
grounds and S50.O00 would be
enough as it would amount to
Harry Hayncs said there
seemed to be no disposition on
the part of Brenham to take
hold; though the eastern termi-
nus of the road would be New
Orleans and the western "in west
Texas. Independence would
give $25000; Brenham should
help with a larger sum. Was
willing'to give his share. He
spoke of the benefits to be de-
rived from another competing'
Col. Giddings said certain
tilings were neccessary before
going into the business. If the
C. and was owned by the
Central it was only intended as
a feeder; he hoped that if Mr.
Rice or any one authorized to
speak was present they would
state the object of the meeting.
Mr. Haynes said the Central
only owned $5000 stock in the
Central and Montgomery. Col.
Giddjngs then said J)e favored
the route; that it might be built;
that the people of Brenham had
never been backward in encour-
aging ' railroads; we now have
two. Brenham has- some c?p-
italists who would not subscribe
for any enterprise. Railroads
can't be built by small contri-
butions; it must be demonstrat-
ed that the road will be a paying
one; thought it well enough to
discuss the subject but such
roads were only built when ne-
cessity demanded it. He be-
lieved the road would be a pay-
ing one affording both an out-
let for lumber ami .stock. This
road malting the Mississippi on
the cast and the Pacific on the
west is one of the grandest en-
terprises in the state. He
thought the Sioo.ooo should
not be demanded as a donation
but that the company should
issue stock for it; thought they
would do so if the" matter was
properly laid before them. Bren-
ham would do her full duty
when the proper time arrived.
Mai. Jules A. Randle of
Washington said he expected
that Mr. Rice would have been
present; had received a letter
from iiim stating that if the cit-
izens of Washington county
would donate the light of way
depot grounds and Sjoo.ooo in
cash he would build the road to
Brcnham at once. The direc-
tors intend extending the road
to the long leaf pine country in
Mr. Seward said the people
of Independence would give
liberally; if necessary half they
own. He owned land on the
east of Independence and Mr.
J. A. McCrocklin that on the
west they were willing to give
right of way and depot grounds.
Mr. Haynes moved" that a
committee of three be appoint-
ed to communicate with Mr.
Rice and ascertain lrom him
how and when this S 10000c is
to be raised; and if the same
will not be received as capital
stock of the company. Messrs.
Hairy Haynes of Jndiepend-enFP
D. C. Giddings.'of Brenham and
Fayette Smith of Washington
were appointed on said comm.it-
tec whereupon tic meeting ad-
journed subject to the call of

al meeting of the city council

r The Judicial CoiiTcntion.
I have recieved a number of
communications from gentle-
men living in different parts of
this judicial district in regard to
calling a. convention to nomi-
nate a district judge ; some fa-
vor the calling-of said conven-
tion and some protest against it.
Jn reply to these communica
tions X would say that 1 have
not been officially notified of
my appointment to call said
convention or at least I consid-
er my appointment informal.
I am free to say that had I been
regularly appointed I should
have called the convention and
left jt to the delegates to deter
mine in regard to the expedien-
cy of making a nomination; it
is a matter that should have
been determined by the democ-
racy of the entire district and
not.by any particular portion of
it the same reasons urged
against party nominations 'for
jqdge applies with equal force
against making party nomina-
tions to fill the various county

owing to the scarcity of good
material in the republican ranks
strictly party nominations.

Near Crapall Washington Co.- 1
August 15th 1880.
In jour l.sue of the 1 Jtli instant appears
a communication liom "Flow Hoy" in
-a Inch he cipressd himself strongly in fa.
vor of a compromise uith the radical par-
ly of this county.
The question is: uhit uould the democ-
racy gain by a compromise with & nJ
that has been bleeped in inin-y zin
honofirrom iu very inception? One main
.cause of our defeat heretofore as that par-
ty lines were not strictly enough drawn
many men who were thought to be "simon
pure democrats" split their ticleU and
voted in part for radical nominees. The
democracy have extended the ohv- branch
and the radicals have offered the sword
and suli continue to offer it. As an evi-
dence of the above fact the head-center of
the radical party gave expression to senti-
ments here nt one of their 'nigger" pow-
wows hich shows he favors anything else
but conciliation. He was out for sheriff
and stated "if he was elected no democrat
would eat bread from the Sheriff's office
of Washington county and that all his
deputies would be appointed from the rad-
ical party and equally divided between
white and black." This man Henry E.
Loclett virtually controls the radical par-
ty of our paunty. He does the planning
and the balance execute. When such sen-
timents actuate the leader what can w e ex-
pect from his followers ! What w ould the
radical party gain br concessions T They
hare complete control of our county affairs.
A compromise on the Dart of the democ
racy rieans disorganization and defeat for
) ears to cone. The party as it now stands
in the county is-gaining strength. If wc
don't beat them at the-coming election let
us work ine naruer to ueieal tnem lo
ycarsjience. No sirs let us make Co com-
promise no concessions trot fight lhem
to the bit cr end.

Mux Creek Aug. 21.
Some party or parties during
the past lew days have been to
.vhat is known in this neighbor-
hood as Mill creek lake and
litertally destroyed a large num-
ber of fish by exploding torpe-
does. When exploded they
kill every fish within a range of
fiorty or fifty feet. We have
no objection to anybody fishing
on the lak.e- that wants to but
the use of torpedoes is a species
ol vandalism closely bordering
on malicious mischief. We are
determined to enfore the law
against all offenders.
When a man becomes a can-
didate for office he should do
so with his eyes open. A man
who has not been a candidate
has no idea what a bad man he
is; he jj as likely to be charged
with the murder of his great-grand-mother
as anything else
and if he is charged with it or
with arson or chicken stealing;
it is his duty as a ca.ndjd.ate to.
grjrt and bear 'it without com-
plaint. So long as the charges
against a candidate have refer-
ence only' to his political actions
or peccadillos he should con-
sider himself as oncwftqUpe-
cuhary fprtiwatp. A "man's po-
litical record is public property
and he should so conduct bir-
self politically Js b be above
Jack Imkrs deputy sheriff of
Washington county called at

morning with a document in
relation to the recent lynching
and in reply to the charge made
by justice Campbell that Lands
furnished Crathers with a half

Banner offered to publish
x-and's denial ofhaving furnish-
ed the whiskey and his assertion
that he gave Carothers S1.25 of
his own money. Considering
the other matter as inevajent

In our report of the proceed-
ings of the republican county
convention it is stated tha
judge McAdoo's name was pro-
posed and that he (judge Mc-
Adoo) withdrew it and it wiV
agatn proposed and he was
nominated by acclamation-. Wet
are now informed that the' nae
of judge McAdoo was not wife
drawn but that when ir-te&
proposed by some delcgafc
he was nominated by acc!aa&
tion; we are also informed ?uSat
the name of S. A. HackWth.
was proposed but it was withdrawn-
Judge McAdoo was
not present at the conveiitibn.
and gave no directions to an-
one either to nominate ori.with-

District Court will open on
Monday September 6th. Mr.
J. L. Moore as usual is fully up
with his work and has his dock
ets and papers all in order. He
informs the Banner that there
is now on the docket 26 old
criminal cases 200 old civil
cases and only 25 new civil cas-
es. The small number of new
civil cases shows that in a finan-
cial way at least we are in a
healthy condition. The out-
look is not encouraging for the
Sadelery. We call especiall
attention of parties in need of
saddlery or harness to the fact
thatW. T. Wroe at'Giddings
has the best stock in that line
to be found in the state. Stock
men will find at Mr. Wroe's the
celebrated California Still tree
the best saddle made.
