TnOJIAS II. JOHNSON
ATUItOAT JANIMUY 4 lSSi.
It Ij asserted that every gsrablini; house In
Philadelphia Is doted.
"Tin speciat edition of the San Antonio
Light for Christmas" savs the Waco Exam-
iner "is worthy the praise It is receiving."
The Waco Examiner predicts that the
special session will last 90 days and will not
have completed its work. In that event a
msjority of the law makers had better go ofl
and fall In the creek.
It is an open question if a herd law as a
proposed remedy for the fence cutting troubles
would be found satisfactory to the stock inter-
ests ;' the western part of the State. It would
change the entire system of stock raising.
As a general thing the saloen business is
not numbered among the failures in business
circles but in a number of Kansis towns late-
ly the publicans have gone to the wall with a
suddenness that is snjgettlve of financial dis-
aster beyond recovery.
Tut recent agitation of the street and sewer
Improvement has developed the fact thst
there are no mossbacks running for Aldermen.
Public opinion is in favor of Improvement and
progression and the man that stands In the
way will get stepped on.
A statement having been made that the
World's cotton expolition was in some man
ner under the control of Ihe Louisiana lottery
Mr. E. A. Burke Director General and tke
Hoard of Management denounce the state
ment as ridiculously and infamously false.
TliEccntInuar.ee of cholera in Egypt is a
danger of no small matter. Judge Forman
of the International tribunal at Cairo gives
some startling figures when he says the
deaths last summer are estimated from 65000
to 70000. A rigid quarantine may confine it
The building boom San Antonio most needs
at the present time is that of cottages. Rents
kre altogether too high and houses are too
scarce there being scores ol applicants in
nnswer to an advertisement of house to rent.
The want of houses drives many people away
from Ihe city because they Sod it impossible
to get suitable quarters.
The numerous business failures reported
every day from all over the country seem to
Indicate that the times are close everywhere
But the general opinion of men who are in
position to know is that all the country really
seeds is to be let alone and business will
even Itself up. Tariff tinkering by Congress
can be looked upon as a calamity.
The less time wasted in flights ol oratory at
Austin this winter the better off the Slate
will be. Business is what the special session
of the Legislature is called for and it should
be attended to promptly and fairly. There Is
a political bonanza in store for the man who
can so shape legislation as to settle the
troubles now agitating the western part of the
"It is an ill wind that blows no good" aavs
the Bellville Standard "and the latest report
irom the seat of war Is that cattle hare depre'
dated in value in consequence of Ihe fences
being destroyed. Now il they caa onlr suc
ceed in msklcg the butchers come down to
something like reasonable charges the fence
enters will not be such a bad set of fellows
Theek Is an evident desire to brine forth
candidate against Governor Ireland this fall
nd Peler Smith Esq Fort Worth's Mayor
is being boomed quite loudly. Governor Ire
land is not as popular as he was a few months
ago and has shown alack of real official ca.
padty but It Is a very open question If any
one man or ting can get the nomination away
' fro him II he desires it
IIeei Is a pointer for our city police which
ra'ght preveat a few of the marry burglaries
rported. The Chicago Times saysi "A
New York policeman going to a grocery
store to get a piece of pie discovered and
caught a burglar and it Is hence dear that the
prevalence of crime In New York is due to the
unfortunate fact that so few policemen prefer
pie to something stronger."
Tme agrarian outrages In way of destroyed
fences will have the effect at an early day of
bolishing cattle kings. The large herds.
like the Indian and the stsge driver will have
to give way to the advancing immigration.
This result is incvilabte and tke fence cutting
troubles have only hastened the time and It
will no doubt prove of benefit in Ihe end to
the State. Smaller herds and better grades
will pay as great a dividend as the old patri-
rchal system of slock raiting and the thou
sands of acres now given up solely to cattle
will be parceled out into small farms.
With n.r.l.t.nt rnusde xrilnlt it. the
habit of carrying concealed weapons can be
broken up. The D!las Times says j "The
pistol must go. All classes of people are
agalnit them and the penitentiary must tie
the punishment or pistol carrying In the
future. As an Illustration thst the people are
considering it we have only to point to a res-
olution of the Ennii Dallas and Waiahachle
hunting club which makes It an ollense lor
any member during the meetings ol the club
to carry any weapon forbidden by the laws of
the State. The attention of the press is called
to this as an evidence that the people of North
Texas have advanced and are civilised."
Brooklyn New York has Inaugurated a
ne scheme in Its municipal affairs. Its
latest novelty ssys the Tribune "is an unpaid
Board of Aldermen which will go Into power
with the new year. This will save the city at
least $25000 annually but a saving In money
Is not the only good result expected. It Is
believed that a better class of men will be
willing to serve in the Board hereafter that
fewer jobs will be put through It and that
unlcipal reform in general will be more
easily promoted. New Yorkers will watch
the experiment with Interest. This city Is said
to'not be yet ripe for municipal reform. Per-
haps that is so but If somebody would only
test us by suggesting that we should try to get
along without any Aldermen at alL"
The Chicago Times says t "Stories reflect
ing seriously upon the prowess of Mr. Paddy
Ryan are still in circulation. It may not be
true as is asserted that he has decided not
to meet Sullivan In the proposed knock-out
performance but quite a number of persons
would hare an increased respect for his wis-
dom and prudence if he had made up his
mind to that effect. Ryan has met Sullivan
before not by chance the usual way but in
a twenty-four foot ring and the meeting was
decidedly to his disadvantage. Then too he
has a mother a woman of stem heroic mold
who was profoundly diiguited with her son on
that occasion and who In the event of hit re-
ceiving another drubbing from Sullivan would
probably give him a far worse one herself.
Altogether nobody will blame Paddy If he
should allow some other pressing engagement
to interfere with his meeticg the lad from
The Houston Post saysi "Congressional
provision for the Presidential succession has
been agitated since the death of Garfield but
no settlement of the matler has been made.
Mr. McCord's bill now before the House Is
probably the most reasonable and acceptable
of all the schemes proposed. The provisions
in brief arc: I. 1 hat the Presidential elec
tors shall continue for four years to exercise
their office so far as that they may be called
upon to supply a vacancy caused by the death
or inability of both President and Vice Presi
dent. 2. That the Secretary of State shall
perform the duties of President ad interim
and shall issue a proclamation convening the
Board of Electors to supply the deficiency.
3. The same proceedures shall be observed
as in ordinary elections except the counting
of the electoral vote which shall be done on
the second Tuesday alter the meeting and or-
ganisation next succeeding she regular session
of Congress or if Congress be in session on
the eighth Tueiday after the election. This
plan of Mr. McCord is a simple and satisfac
tory one. It is thought it will meet with but
little opposition and its passage will put at
rest a question that has vexed Congress and
the people for some time."
