The Dallas correspondent of the New Or-
leans Times-Democrat writes that paper as
The conviction of Stillwell II. Russell ex-
United States Marshal o( Western Texas and
his condemnation to the penircntiary pro-
duced more than an ordinary sensation in
Texas not to say surprise. Ever since the
war the different Presidents.have been iu the
habit of picking up bummers and scruff of bad
reputations at home commissioning and billet-
ing them upon the people of Texas. Ninety-
nine rascals have escaped and Russell is con-
victed. Russell owes his downfall to wine
and women. It's the old old story. A va-
riety actress nightly appears before the foot-
lights of Dallas and an audience often in
the clutches of the police and grand juries
who openly boasts of wearing $10000 worth
of diamonds given her by ex-Marshal Russell
while she was his mistress and bought with
money he had stolen from the Government.
She is not the least approach to beautiful but
is as sharp as a steel trap cunning as a fox
soft as a mole and as unscrupulous as the
devil. And it is a noted and notorious fact
about the town of Marshall where he lived
mat ne in private transactions was a rascal.
Me built a fine mansion over there swindled
the contractors and beat St. Louis furniture
deaisrs out of enough mahogany black wal-
nut and cherry Ilrusscls and laces to fur-
nish it from trp to bottom. He was proven
guilty at his trial point blank. And yet there
has been started a petition at many points in
Texa asking the Preiident to pardon him.
borne Republicans and Democrats are sieninn
it upon the ground that Federal officeholders
in lexas are no better than he is and the
Government should not make fish of one and
flesh of others. Others are signing as they
sign everything else of that kind because they
arc asKcu iu.
I understand'the President never navs the
slichest attention to such documents. He re
fuses to pardon even temeant Mason in defer
ence to public sentiment and therefore the
chances for Russell's escape are just none at
all if he counts upon getting out that door.
Kusseu was a creai ana imnenous swell un tn
the time he was arrested lie had a lordly
air a coniempi lor ordinary ioiks stole money
like a bank forger and spent it like a Lord
Gordon. His feathers are down now his

few days his $io tweed-cloth will be laid
aside for io cent stripes. Unless you have a

They found that Ihe deposit was large and a

agreed that he should teceive 123 100 of the

The recent raid upon the pamblinr houses

of bringing into market many fine pieces of
property for which large amounts have been

In many cases the revenue stamps placed
upon the bottles of Jwhat are !known as pro-

packages. After July I there will be no
stamps required upon these so-called medi-

the tax as rectifiers unless they can show

A new explosive has been invented by M.
Petri a Viennese engineer. The name given
to it 'sdynamogen and it is likely to compete
seriously with gunpowder. The inventor
states that it contains neither sulphuric acid
nitric acid nor nitro-glycerine and that it '
cannot injure in any way cither gun or cart-
ridge. The charge of dynamogen is in the
form of a solid cylinder which can be in-
creased in quantity without being Increased
in size by compression. The manufacture of
dynamogrn is simple and without danger. It
preserves its qualities in the coldrst or hottest
wcalher and can be made at 40 per cent less
cost than gunpowder.
