A tILLY 1VIIITK TALKS TEA l'OLI-
TIC-. IN WA-UIXGTON
Mr. A. J. Fallen of Houston
talking to a reporter for the St.
Louis Eepublic in "Washington re
cently said. "I came here to see the
President and to have a talk with
the Republican Executive Commit
tee. I saw the President and he
seemed to take a deep interest in
what I had to say. He wanted to
know why it was that the republi
cans of Texas had never before
taken anTBart in the state campaign.
T told him in ulaiu Ensrhsh that it
was the nearo question. The
publicans in Texas are white men
and do not propose to submit to
negro domination as I told the
president and j-ear after year the
white republicans in Texas have
gone to the polls and voted the
straight democratic ticket in pre
ference to supporting ignorant
negroes and carpet-beggers who are
controlled by such men as the
negro Cuney collector of the port
of GalveBton. The negroes look
upon Cuney as their Moses and he
practically runs the republican
party in Texas or rather he did so
until recently when we succeeded
in partially displacing him.
"I said to Mr. Harrison that if he
wanted the republican party in
Texas to grow in strength and num
bers he must put a stop to Cuney
using the federal patronage attach
ed to the collector's office for his
(Cuney's) personal benefit. Mr. Har
rison said he would see to it that
Cuney's participation in the State's
politics would cease. X also liad a
talk with Mr. Belden chairman of
the republican national executive
committee who said he would give all
the assistance he could."
The same rule applies to Paul
Fricke who holds a federal office.
He nses the power invested in him
as "U. S. Marshal for the Western
District as an excuse for nosing
around in Whashington county
manipulating colored conventions
and making of himself an offensive
partisan in local politics. He wants
to pose as a Moses to lead the color-
ed people of Washington county
but his leadership betrays rather
the characteristic of Judas Iscariot
who betrayed the Savior for 30
pieces of silver. Jle pretends to
lead them but manipulates them for
the futherance of his own political
ambition and to perpetuate his
tenure of office and it is said by
some of the colored leaders from
whose eyes the scales have fallen
who are no longer blind to his tricks
sells them out at so much per head.
Will the colored people of Wash-
ington county follow the lead of a
man who has no more interest in
their welfare than the furtherance of
his own shemes f A man who to-day
blows hot and to-morrow cold?
Who one day is your friend pulling
for you and next calls a convention
and changes the ticket f Does such
uncertain political mothods inspire
confidence in his leadership or does
it rather create a doubt of his pre
tended friendship ? Cain the first
republican nominee had a lesson of
his treachery. He nursed the viper
and it turned and stung the bosom
tint warmed it.
The Exchange saloon mourns the
loss of its contract musician. Thuts-
day the proprietor hired an organ
grinder on a basis of twenty-one
tunes for a dime. The organ was a
slow one and the saloon had music
all day for thirty-five cents. Along
late in the afternoon the grinder was
a little too full to feed the box with
the sheet music but he kept turning
and singing until late Thursday
night. He went to the Pennington
Hotel forlodgiug and when told
that they were crowded said "Dat
was all right I jus' sleep here in tho
office." They rustled around and
found him lodging.
Messrs. Frank Mclntyre and
Eobt. Schuerenben returned Fri
day from Buckhorn where the- at-
tended the big barbecue Thursday.
They report a. good time. There
were a number of speeches the
moat notable of which were those of
Dr. McGregor and Dr. Thompson
on the political issues of the day.
The barbecue was fine and good or-
der was maintained throughout the
day not a fight occurring not a
drunken man seen on the grounds.
In the afternoon there was horse
racing and target shooting.
Os the 25th inst. the last grand
Fest will be at Autioch. Beat 5 Lee
county. There will be political
speeches by Hons. O. H. Crismau
M. G. York B. Bryan and Sam
Jenkins of Brenham and others.
Speaking will commence at 10
o'clock a; m. There will be plenty
of refreshments on the grounds and
the public general-! ladies and gen-
tlemen are invited to attend.
I U itu the exception of a few bad I
' places the streets of Brenham are in '
good condition. There is one place J
at the southwest coiner of court
square which has been the cause of
two or three accidents that bhould be
remedied if a sewer has to be buried
there and the drain filled up. It is
Mr. Eoexsch of the jewelry firm
of Messrs. Scbaucrhaniincr A.
Eoensch of Bellville was in the
city Thursday to identif;. and claim
the jewelry that was in posession of
the two negroes killed here Tuesday
night. From him it was learned
that their store was broken into
Monday night and 8400 worth of
jewelry pipes and pocket knies
taken therefrom at the cost price.
He recovered eight of the pocket
knives at Sealy where they were
disposed of at five cents each. All
of the pipes of which there was a
large lot were genuine merscham
by with the exception of two some of
them costing in Chicago S12 a piece
the wholesale. There were only
thirteen knives in the lot here some-
thing over SO being unaccounted
for. One of the finest pipes was
heard of in Sealy and the gentleman
hopes to recover more of the goods
there. He is of the opinion that
there were others besides the two
negroes who were killed implicated
in the robbery and they will be ar-
rested as soon as sufficient evidence
can be procured against them. The
gentleman says they must haven
been pretty good judges of jewelry
as they empted the two show-cases
containing the best lot in the store.
Thursday night just as Messrs.
Jacob & Eldridge were closing their
store to go to the theatre as they
blew out the last lamp which was
one of those large gallon bowl metal
lamps tho wire by which it was sus-
pended to the ceiling broke and it
came to the floor with a crash spill-
ing the .oil all over the floor at the
same time setting in on fire. The
flames spread wherever the oil had
scattered and leaped up some four
or five feet high and for a brief
space of time Capt. Byrnes who
was at the door and witnessed the
accident said things looked like the
store was gone but he rushed n to
then1 assistance they opened a sack
of salt and by piling it on liberally
soon extinguished the flames. Sever
al months ago a barrel of acohol
leaked on the floor of tho same store
and was caught by a match and
threatened a serious conflagration
but was extinguished by tho esu of
salt and Thursday night remember-
ing its efficacy there was no time
lost in adopting the same method
of extinguishing the flames from
tne spilled kerosene: their prompt
action perhaps saving the building.
About 5 o'clock Friday afternoon
a Bohemian who had imbibed a lit-
tle too freely in the ardent while in
the city left in a two horse wagon
and apparently out of pure cussed-
ness drove out of the road to run
over a buggy hitched in front of tho
residience "of Mr. C. H. Carlisle.
The horse attached to the buggy
was tied to tho yard fence and the
buggy well out of the road. The
Bohemian struck tho buggy with
his wagon demolished it and
knocked the horse up against the
fence and drove on. Mr. Carlisle
was down town and tho horse
nitcnea mere ior ins wile out as
soon as he heard of it he sent a man
out who followed the man far
enough to ascertain who he was and
doubtless a warrant will bo issued
for his arrest. This is not .the first
buggy that has been torn up in this
way and parties who are in the
habit of such reckless driving
should be made to pay for all dam-
ages. An example made of a few
such cases would serve to deter
others from committing such deeds.
