In the bright lexicon of enterprise
there U no such word as fail.
Mossbaclism is out of date in this
ago of enterprise and should bo out of
fashion in Waco

Ii is not a question of manufactories
or no manufactories It is facorics or
business stagnation and death to the
dear hopes and noblo aspirations of
the peoplo of Waco.
Despite tho partisan tone of the new
president's inaugural address it con-
tains many noblo and patriotio exprcs
sions that deserve to be embalmed as
Big men are by thoprccedents of
all ages the natural leaders in every
undertaking Those numerals on that
cotton factory stock subscription
should taper from the top downward.
Texans living near El Paso have
complained to the president that Mexi-
cans on tho opposito side of tho Rio
Grande have been building dams so
as to cause erosions from the banks on
tho American side. .
With a $200000 cotton factory and
the Grand Trunk railroad added to
her present enterprises Waco will forge
to the front of the procession and cater
along at the elbow of her plucky
neighbor Fort Worth"
From tho tenor of President Har-
rison's inaugural address we aro in-
clined to the opinion that his is to be
emphatically a party afdministratioB.
He is evidently in tho hands of the
republican party bosses and the decis-
ions of the party caucus will in our
opinion be the rule of action under the
This is an age of combines and it
is beooming exceedingly difficult for
tho members of any lino of business
to stand aloof one from tho others and
get remunerative prices for their
wares and their services. It is coming
to be viewed almost as a necessity
for members of the same avocation to
band together for mutual assistance
and protection by upholding r ates.
The able leader of our local contem-
porary this morning on Cheap Money
is to the point and in line with senti-
ments expressed in the News yester-
day. Here is tho secret of the whole
difficulty that now stares Waco in the
face: Surely the Bakers the Came-
rons tho Kellunis the Manns the
Rotans the gangers the Solomons
and other financcrs of Waco are com-
petent to grapple with and solve this
At the present rato that cotton fac
tory stook will nover get far beyond a
hundred thousand. This sum how-
ever will be sufficient to erect and
equip a faotory of no mean propor-
tions and an abundance of oheap
eastenr money con Id doubtless be
secured for operating purpose. If
we can't get a two hundred thousand
mill let's have a one hundred thou-
sand dollar mill. By all means let's
have the mill big or little.
A young English diplomat at Wash-
ington is reported to bo tho victim of
ono of thoso mortifying mistakes that
will sometimes happen" to men in love.
Being infatuated with a young Ameri-
can heiress ho wished to express his
adoration in tho language of flowers
and so purchased n box of choice roses
for a present to his lady love. Tho
samo afteftioon feeling tho approach
of a cold wave he invested in a pair of
thoso warm wooltn garments that stick
closer than a brother to a man's legs.
Coming homo late to dinner ho hur-
riedly dashed off a little noto to tho
fair charmer saying1 "Wear these
this evening for my skc" and grab-
bing up tho box with tho woolen ap-
parel in it handed it to his servant to
oarry to tho young lady. Tho story
here ends without informing tho curi
ous reader whether the young lady
complied with tho request contained
in the missive. Ho is also left in
doubt as to tho fato of tho young di-
plomatist when overtaken by the doub
ly cold wavo that must must have on-
sued from such a blunder without his

Tho inaugtural address of President
Harrison which was read this morn-
ing throughout the nation is an able
and ingenious state document but dis-
tinoivetly republican and bristling with
partisan bias. As the first expression
of the new president whioh may bo re-
garded as a foreshadowing to some ex-
tent of the policy of the new admin-
istration wo deem it of sufficient im-
portance to place before our readers ex-
tracts giving tho utterances of the new
chief executive upon the current po-
litical issues that stand out most prom-
inently before the publio mind Af-
ter a few glittering generalities by way
of introduction the president addres-
ses himsolf to the protective system
which ho discusses and defends with
vigor. Proceeding he answers tho in-
quiry concerning his 1
"southern rouoi "
very ingeniously as follows :
"I have altogether rejectedthe sug-
gcowuu vi npcuiai executive policy
for any section of our country. It is
the duty of tho executive to adminis
ter and enforce in the methods and by

general and their administration should
be uniform and equal as a citizea"may
not elect what laws he will obey neith-
er may tho executive eleot whioh he
will enforce. Tho duty to obey and
execute embrace the constitntion in
its entirety and the whole code of laws
enacted under it. The evil example
oi permitting inaiviauais corporations
or communities to nuiuiy jaws Dccause
they cross some selfish or local inter
ests or prejudices is full of danger
not only to the nation at large but
much more to those who use this per-
mission as an expedient to escape their
just obligations or to obtain an unjust
aavantage over others. They will
presently themselves be compelled to
appeal to the law for protection and

fense must not deny that uso of it to

but no uncertain approval.
4iIt is very gratifying 'to observe the
interest now being manifested in the
reform of our oleotiorllaws. Those
who' have for years been callintr atten
tion to the pressing necessity of throw-
ing about tho ballot box and about the
elector further safe suards in order that
our elections might'clearly appear1 to be
iair ana nonest win weieome ue acces-
sion of any who did not bo soon discov-
er the need of reform. The national
congress has not as yet taken control
of eleotions in cases over which tho
constitution gives it jurisdiction but
has accepted and adopted tho election
laws oi me soverai states wmen provid-
ed penalties for our .national life and
no po;ver vested in congress or the ex
ecutive to secure or perpetuato it
should remain unused.
The people of all the congressional
districts have an equal interest that
tho election in each shall truly express
the views and wishes of a majority of
the qualified electors residing within
it. The result of -such elections is not
local and the insistence of electors re
siding in other districts that they
should be pure and freo docs not savor
at all of impertinence if in any of the
states publio security is thought to be
threatened by ignoranco among elec-
tors the obvious remedy is education.
Tho sympathy 'and help of J tfce'people
willtitot be" withheld from aa commu'
nity struggling with special embar-
rassments or difficulties connected with
the suffrage if the remedies proposed
proceed upon lawful jines and are pro?
moted'by 'just and honorable methods.
How shall thoso who 'practice election
frauds .recover that respect for the
sancity for the ballot which is tho first
condition'and obligation of good citi-
zenship? The man who has come'to
regard the ballot'boxas a juggler's hat
has renounced his allegiance. Lat us
exalt patriotism and moderate oui' par-
ty contentions. Let those who would
die for the flag on the field of battle
give uutier prooi ui ineir iairiotiBm
and higher glory io their country by
promoting fraternity and justice A
party success that is achieved by un-
fair methods or by practices that par-
take of revolution is hurtful and eva-
nescent even from a party standpoint-
Wo should hold our different opinions
in mutual respect and having submit
ted them to the arbitrament of the
ballot should accept an adverse judg
ment with the same respeot that we
would have demanded of our opponents
