TIIOM.IH II. JOHNSON
JIONDAY CTOIli:it I 1883.
Accordi.no to the Ohio Stale Auditor's re-
port $2000000 were collected through the
provisions of the Scott liquor law which sum
wis devoted to the relict of the poor ami to
other benevolent putpoics.
Till pop corn ball mutt go. A health
officer at Cleveland has discovered that the
pink pop corn ball that Is sold at circuses
and on the streets is poisonous because of the
anoline used In the coloring process.
In tiii race at Fleetwood park on Satur-
day between St. Julian and Jar-Eye-Sec the
latter was the winner. Time 2:20 2:lS4
2:19. The purse was $5000. The slow lime
was occasioned by a very heavy track.
Mr. IJ Esther's lecture "The Relcnofthe
Common Teople" has been greeted with a
full house at Dallas. It Is an intellectual
treat and our people should give him a good
audience at Casino hall to-morrow night.
THUS far during his American tour Lord
Chief Justice Coleridge has declined to be
interviewed but from his post-prandial utter-
ances it Is to be Inferred that he Is highly
gratified with the reception he has me' on
The celebrated Jewish (east of Kosh Ha-
shanah or new year commences on the even-
ing of to-day and terminates to-morrow
night. It will be followed on the loth by the
day ol atonement and shortly after by the
other Isra-litlc feasts.
The Treasury detectives made a seizure In
Minnesota ol a lot of paraphernalia and plates
for manufacturing counterfeit silver cer-
tificates. The captured notes present a bung-
ling appearance although they are more easy
to imitate than the currency.
The Greenville Banner discoursing on the
subject of German farmers ssyt: "The Ger-
man farmer Is a success In spite ol some
prejudices against him and we wish Texas
had a million of them with their small well-
tilled farms their thrift and their happy so-
ciety." Alderman Lockwood ain't no swine and
knows when he has got enouch. In his
every Sunday apology through the Express
he ssys he has not the slightest intention or
desire to become a candidate for Ihc Mayor-
alty. Another resolution on the ditch ques-
tion would knock all future Aldermanlc ambi-
tion out of him.
Senator Ulair's sub committee has been a
most fruitful theme for the newspaper
writers and it is quite probable that the re-
sults obtained may be more valuable than they
now appear although the greater portion of
Ihe testimony taken has come from theorists
and men who practically do not know that
it takes a hundred cents to make a dollar.
Train robbers attacked a Santa Fe train at
Coolidge Kansas Saturdsy morning end
killed the engineer and wounded the fire-
man. One of the robbers got Into the ex-
press car and shot at the messenger who re-
turned the fire and compelled him to run
without getting any of the money or valu-
ables. Officers are In pursuit.
Tin Washington Republican says : "The
railways of Texas have compromised with the
colored people by agretlng to put on cars for
their accommodation In every way equal to
those furnished to white travelers. This
ought to obviate the necessity of having to
kill so many "niggers" in the future." But
it would not obviate the necessity for
giving the fool-killer a job of exterminating
the class of writers who attempt to say some
thing smart In items like the one quoted
The esteem with which President Arthur Is
held In the minds of the people all over the
country finds a partial acknowledgment
through the complimentary endorsement and
resolutions so far made at Ihe Slale Repub-
lican conventions. He lias been much more
a President of Ihe pecple and for the people
than any man who has occupied that position
for very many long years while at the same
time his administration has done more to unite
the broken and disordered factions of Ihe Re
publican party In New Voik than anyolher one
The Uocrne Advance evidently under
stsnds the railroad situation and gives timely
advice in the following) "The trouble with
ban Antonio was that it had so many railroad
schemes In view it got swamped. Now
stall over and build one. The press of San
Antonio have punched the merchants up at a
lively rale and tried by every argument to
show them the advantage of a railrood lo Ihe
gulf but to no purpose. If San Antonio
does not show mote energy she will lose
what she has gained. There are other cities
in Texas which are growing ripidly."
Tup. Si. Louis Globe Democrat says : "II
comparative distances meant anything nowa-
days the opening of the Atlantic and Pacific
route to California would be a grand thing ht
St. Louis San Francisco and all the interme-
diate country. The new line Is much shorter
than any other. One might expect it to car-
ry passengers and freight for proportionally
less money than Its competitors. Hut It will
do nothing of the sort. Rates will be fixed
on a plane which will give handsome profits to
the longest and least favorably situated line
and the public will lose all ihe benefits of com-
petition. This is one aspect of the pooling
problem and in some respects an unpleas-
ant aipect. Hut there teems to be no help
The New York Tribune says i "The heavy
failures of the last day or two in the
woolens ami clothing trade of this city will
excite surprise and sympathy In business
circles all over the country. The firms in-
volved In the ruin are chiefly If not entirety
composed of Hebrews whose careful busi-
ness habits and great industry are well Known.
It Is not often that shrewd traders and mer-
chants of this class get Into such trouble. The
cause assigned for the crash Is a great shrink-
age In orders for woolen goods for the last
lew years It seems very likely however
that fuller explanations will show that unwise
speculations In real estate had something to
do with It. If this proves lo be the case the
Jewish tradition against buying houses and
lands will be strengthened."
According to that very old Spanish legend
says a correspondent of the New York Com-
mercial Advertiser the Lord el Eternal Padre
once called Into his presence the patron saints
of European nations acd asked them what
they wished for their native countries. St.
George who spoke on behalf of England
begged for ships and coal; St. Martin asked
that France should have the best wines and
much glory; St. Gregorius St. Janvier Si.
Olaf and others presented their claims all of
which the Lord granted. When It came the
turn of St. Jacques de Compostella the patron
Saint ol Stain he said : " I want for my
country the finest climate." "Granted." "I
want lor It the most beautiful women."
" Granted again." " I want the best govern
ment." " Impossible" anjwered the Lord
"This has already been granted to some one
The Laredo Times speaking of the pres
ence In that cily of fames Price the detec-
tive who arrested M. T. Polk the Tennessee
Treasurer says the Captain " is camping on
somebody's track; that he has been robbed of
$ 1500 In money that he ought to have because
he was the man who first arrested Polk and
he says he has been forced to relinquish his
prisoner and that he looked down the muz-
zle of a Winchester rifle when he did so. He
was ordered to hold up his hands and cer-
tain United States officers deprived him of
the Tennessee Treasurer and he proposes lo
make It exceedingly sultry for certain parties In
Texas with the powers that be In Washing-
ton." Mr. Price Is now the man with a
grievance and if he has been so wronged it Is
to be hoped that he will be able to get even-
handed justice meted out to him.
Mr. G. McPherson editor of the Blanco
Star-Vindicator was In the city a few days
ago and in his account of his visit we get the
following ! "San Antonio is the most cos-
mopolitan city west of the Mississippi river
....The San Antonio of jo years ago Is fast
fading away and soon the town will be com-
pletely Americanized... We observed very
palpable evidences of Improvement all over
the city. New buildings were going up on
every hand while there was not a single house
In the place 'to let'.... On Main plaza there
stands an old cathedral the rear portion of
which has been there almost from time Imme-
morial. Its antiquated walls could they
speak could tell many a tale and describe
many a scene .that are now lost to the world
forever. Nobody should visit the Alamo City
without going through this ancient cathedral.
It will send a thrill of veneration and devotion
through your bosom that nothing else can
save a visit to the Alamo building itself."
The St. Leonard Hotel.
