On Grand avenue near the Abat craning
your humble servant was one of the Invited
guests to least and in the absence of your
reporter asked to fill the vacancy.
That fine two-story building west of the Abat
bridge yesterday was thrown open
and in the presence of a lir je asiemblage
from nearly ait parts of the United States
the champagne corks snapped and the beer
bungs flew In every direction. The partici-
pants were: E. S. lloppe St. Loulj C. It
Hoffman Denver; P. Newman Austin; Mr.
Gosling Galveston; Majir Rarnard New
York; of the city Colonel Belknap Hugo A
Schmeluer l'iof. G. Katzenberger II I)ar

L. W Carrtco Wahrenberger & lleckmann

fessor Hansche of the Frcie Presse; F.

others whose names I do not recall.
Sharp was the word and quick the motion
when all hands at if by magic were seated at
the festive board. Did I say all t That la too
much as It required three sellings to ac-
commodate the assembled multitude and to
attempt to give you the names of the fancy
dishes that covered the table would burst the
Index of Aunt Betsy's cook book. The first
toast was to the Southern Brewing ompany
for their generous supply of Southern beer
made from Southern waters sent especially
for this feast. Mr. Iloppf made a very ap-
propriate reply. The next was to the Lone
Star Brewery by Colonel Belknap and waa
also responded to by Mr. Hoppe. Neat to
the host by Colqnel Hugo when Mr. Schilling
returned thanksV It was supplemented by
Colonel Belknap. Mr. Schilling was cilled
up to ear shot when the Colonel told him he
hoped he would live long and live an honora-
ble and useful life and that he wauld not lose
his "Schilling." A number of other toasts
were drank and properly responded to. Now
one of the principal subjects was the success
of the Southern Brewing association. The
question Is settled once and forever that the
Southern waters can make as good beer as
any waters in the world. It was acknowledged
by every one present Hugo & Schmeluer
agents for'the St. Louis beer not excepted to
be the best beer ever drank in San Antonio.
Colonel Belknap as usual was the center of
gravity riciting many stories among others
his first visit to San Antonio his hopes and
expectations; at length he planted his stake
here. Suiting the action to the word he
pointed to the burying ground on the hill and
said his bones would lie there no doubt
where he could look down on Captain Story
and the crooks on North Flores street. The
majority of those present hailed from the
German Empire. They united glass in hand
recited stories from the Fatherland and kept
up one continuous roar of merriment. Mr.
Hoppe was ever on the alert determined to
leave nothing undone to add to the comfort
of Mr. f chilli rig's guests. A visit to the new
brewery in course of erection under' the
master hand of T. W. Carrlco end directed
by Mr. E. S. lloppe who will soon furnish
us clean beer from the polluted waters ol the
San Antonio river. The structure as is seen
from the plans will have an Imposing appear
ance and for perfection In all its parts will
Hand second to none in the country and the
thousands of dollars that leave San Antonio
annually will remain In the coffers of the peo-
ple of San Antonio. Now who Is the pro-
' jector of all thts! The truth must be told; it
belongs to the Indefatigable Colonel William
Esser who over three yea's ago took his
knapsack on his back and started for St.
Louis determined to find out the secrets of
St. Louis lager. During his stay in that city
he made the acquaintance of Mr. E. S.
lloppe. After a pleasant interview they be-
came set friends. In the meantime Mr.
Hoppe build the Southern brewery in New
Orleans and later came to San Antonio to
hunt up Colonel Esser. They laid their
heads together and established a brewing
company for San Antonio and In a very short
time they sold $125000 worth of shares. To-
day you tee the result of Colonel Esser't
energy and perseverance "All honor is due
to heme manulactureri." Let olhera In their
line follow suit and San Antonio will be the
' envy of the Northern manufacturers and the
buildiog boom will not cease.
Captain J. J. Knott of Laredo will fill an
Important position In the Lone Star brewery
The next hop will be the iormal opening of
the new brewery that will be a galla day.
One thing omitted that Is this: Colonel
Hoppe will be long remembered by the work
hands 0' the new brewery. He called the m
all In to a free bar and drank with them
when toasts fell fast and heavy. Colonel
Hoppe left a good impression on the work
hands and as he will make this his future
home he has sown good seed.
Please excuse my Indisposition which li
my only exeute In not doing ample justice to
thli subject. 1 am aware I have left out
much that ought to hire been added but

p.m.; did not know the name of the engineer
of that train; he examined the body and
thought one of the limbs a little warm; train

Robert Freeman fireman on the engine
sa d when he first discovered the object the
wind was hhwing very strong he could only
tee the flip of a white cloth on the right hand
ide of the track coming south; It appeared
to be a bundle of ctolhes; when within 10 feet
of It it seemed to be a woman whose wearing
apparel was a cotton dress. Could not detect
from the motion of the body it was a human
being; to'd the engineer he had run over a
woman. He ran about two train lergths

CAPTAIN JOHN POCAHONTAS HUMBLE
PIE SMITH THE INCOMPETENT
CITY ENGINEER.
He llrlnga Three Mistily Men of (lath to
Hold lllm a He Irrigates II la Cow-
ardice nnit the I.lgtit Floor
With Ilia Tremuloua
Noute.
The floor since mopped by one of hit
scavengers. Like the boy' who was kicked by
the mule he won't be so pretty but he will
know more the next time. Smith hurt himself
when young but his brain is now restored or
will be before the Light retires him and hit
cowardly Ilk. Ta tal
In yesterday's Issue it becime our pleasant
task to write the civic obituary of a city officer
who died of incompetency having been
choked with too much humble pie. He is the
individual who hat done more to show "how
not to do it" in the matter of street gradet
than any one who could be telected to be
paid by salary especially devoted to that pur-
pose. Hit name it not an uncommon one.
He Is
"A lei low of singular laravado pltb
l'ato trying to conceal blm In calling him
Smith."
He it yclept City Engineer. The Light
yesterday showed that had we had a compe-
tent City Engineer there would have been no
occasion to send for Major Humphreys cf
Memphis Tennessee at a cost of nearly
$600. It thought tike all sensible tax payers
that if we have a City Engineer who is pre-
sumed to have sufficient skill to outline a
system of drainage why should it pay
to bring within Itt border! a gentleman who
could do this work only occupying three
weeks where our City Engineer Captain
John Pocahontas Humble Pie Smith it pre-
sumed to do the work being paid therefor
Thit teemed a sensible conclusion. Our
citizens thli morning think and proclaim the
fact that the Light wat not only right but
rather tardy in itt exposure of Ihe Incom
petency of Captain John Pocahontas Humble
Pie Smith. He is the city's stipendiary wh
on Commerce and Live Oak street! took tix
different levels resulting in a variation of one
foot. He can't tell a plumb level from a
plum ttone. He hat ben called be'ore the
Council repeatedly and accused bjuntly of
inefficiency and procrastination. Yet Uriah
Heep never stood at hit desk half so meekly
and placated his hearers with Ike retrain "I'm
so humble" half sa pitifully as did
Captain John Pocahontas Humble Pie Smith.
He hat been an object of pity of commitcr. -tion.
There was an angle worm bowel of mercy
sentiment to him about this Duke de Kicyi-ack
in asking Ihe Council to let him go. Juit
why he is kept in place Is hard to understand
unless there is a tradition here among the
mossbackt of a past era that Captain John
Pocahontas Humble Pie Smith is a trans-
mitted legacy of poverty ill breeding incom-
petency ugly swagger and bad manners
whom Ihe Aztecs of thia country turned over
to thit generation to be held up as an exem-
plar as to how far pups never made full-
grown dogs mosqultoet fullgrown tarantulas
with hungry stlty nor mules or slunk colts
burlhened with a desire to be City Eiglieer
Captain John Pocahontas Humble Tie
Smith in company with a few mighty men of
Gath called at this office this morning. He
exploded with his hermaphroditic wrath ex-
pressed io the squeaky voice of one who Irri-
gated the floor with hit pusllanimity as
he tpoke for he was tremulous
and ashamed of his wet breech-
clout. He said he was looking for the city
editor of the Light who found him out wrote
him out and pleased the people. He was a
liar when he tald to. From hit teeth to hit
lungs yea down to the cowardly heart that
conceived the falsehood he basely lied. He
passed ihe city editor on the ttreet thit morn-
ing while riding in a wagon the city furnished
to a pauper engineer. Furthermore he passed
him at Ihe stairway leading to the Mayor't
office at 10:30 o'clock thit morning Yet he
said nothing. This teemt ttrange only to
contemptible cowards. The city editor of the
Light is oy no meant a fighting Individual.
Hit all hit family It with him yet be never
dodged In 21 yean' experience with his lesd
pencil the honest avowal of an impottlon on
the city or its tax payers.
For thit Inverted tigh thit zero too poor to
be hooped with a tin thit Captain John
rocahontai Humble Pie Smith we will say
that he It a cringing coward. Had Captain
John Pocahontas Humbfe Pie Smith been
raited a dog he would have disgraced even
the Pound Mailer's kennel. Did a spider or
tarantula ever look down from lit breeding
egg poisoning webb and blush for Smith at
born In Itt virus nurtured on Itt filth and
matriculated on the vapor of itt reptile incest
he would have pronounced the lowest of lit
intertwisted vetmlculated mucuout brood to
be Captain John Pocohsntaa Humble Tie
Smith City Engineer of San Antonio.
Put this Captain Smith in your most cogi-
tative pipe and tmoke It and bear in mind
lhat Ihe city editor of the Light will be de-
lighted to meet you in a genteel matinee be-
tween 5 and 6 o'clock this afternoon the
paper gofng to press at 3 o'clrck. The
mourners and pall bcarert are already cf
gaged.
Chnrced With Lunacy.
An affidavit was filed again! Mrs.Getz this
miming supposed to be a lunatic. She is
the wife of a school teacher who waa found
poisoned some months ago. Mrs. Gets on
most pilnts seems sane but on the matter of
her husband children and properly she
wanders considerably. She tays her husband
left her taking away with him two children
and ahe also states that she Is wife of the
postmaster at Lavaccai

Jesus Garza an entcrprislog Mexican a
man who no doubt thinks that "fine feathert
make fine birds" but not to fine perhaps
wat going to a dance to tee thelady of hit
heart and wishing to appear to the best ad
vantage he entered Eisner & Schmidl't store
where he extracted two boxes of fine shirts
With these he wat about to depart but the
clerk watching the whole transaction gently
placed his hand on the Mexican's thouldcr
and informed him he wat a prisoner. Thts
morning Mr. Eisner made an affidavit against
the thief.
A Sorronlnc Father.
About a year ago a man named Fuller
about 30 years old came to this town and In
a short time spending all his funds
brought to the lowest state of destitution
Some citizens namely Thompson of Keed &
Thompson helped him to the best of their
ability but the unfortunate man giving way to
despair took to drink and ended his life In a
most miserable manner. His father Mr
Fuller of the firm of Grovenstein & Fuller
piano makers of New Yoik a man worth
$300000 or $400000 writes In a piteous way
to friends in this city asking for all informa
Hon about hit dead son. The date of hi
burial and where he la buried arc points he
would like to know.
Iliiptlat Church Matteri.
Dr. II. II. Tucker who left yesterday on
account of the teriout Illness of hit only ton
wat one of Ihe most eminent divinea of th
Baptist denomina Ion. He was formerly Pres
ident nf Mercer university Georgia and lat
editor of the Christian Index Atlanta Ga
The doctor arrived in town and took part In
the Baptist prayer meeting at the Baptist

livered an eloquent sermon and address. At
the tame meeting teveral matters were dis
cussed among others an Impeachment of
Frank Hunt a member of the church and
formerly of this city who is charged with
various little misdeeds. The church also de
termined by a large majority to hold Sunday
school and prayer meeting in the main audi

hitherto been used.
About the Site of It.
The Express of this morning putt it about
right in the following 1
"When the news reached town yesterday
evenlrg that a negro woman had been ru
over and killed on the line of the Interna
tional road the reporter la order to roak
assurance doubly sure called up the Interna

aiked if such were facts. The urbane Indi

not know but knew how to find out.
"Of course the next quettion wat 'how!
when ihe answer camel 'You can just walk
out there and find out for yourself but don1
tell anything.'
"The distance wat about six miles; yet

sumed consideration of the new rules pending.
Vest moved to ttrike out from Rule 26 Ihe
clause providing for a Committee on Internal
Improvements to which shall be referred all
subjects relating to the improvements of nvtrt
and harbors; also a bill known as the River
and Harbor bdl. Referred. Maxey referred
to Ihe remarks made by Frye yesterday with
rrgard to English shipping and taid lhat the
true reason lor the dittcrence between the de-
velopment of English and American shipping
was to be found in Ihe fact lhat England in-
vited her commercial maiine to carry free
loads into her ports from all parts of the
world and to carry free loads out. From the
day the United Slates adopted a high protec-
tive tariff could be dated the decadence ol
American shipping. Referring to the argu-
ment of the Proteclionists that protection was
neccsiary to preserve our industries from com-
petition with ihe pauper labor of Europe
Maxey stated that the faime s of the United
Slates who ask no protective tariff are as a
matter of fact competing to-day with the
pauper labor of Egypt India Austria Poland
Russia and China and In time to
come even New England would de
mand the destruction of protection.

HANCOCK DEFEATED.
An Incident nt the Hern or tlettyaburar'n
Life lul.oa Angelea.
A Los Angeles paper says : " When Han-
cock was stationed in this city in 185861 as
Qiarlermsster of ihe Southern District ol
California he was an athlete of no small pre-
tensions. Among the animals used for trans-
p -nation and over which he had charge were
a number of camels some of which being the
pussesiors ol vicious tempers. One a large
buck was a continual source of trouble and
he generally made il lively for the unlucky In-
dividual who had occasion to go within the
enclosure in which he was c infioed On one
nccaiion Hancock went Into the corral on
some msticr ol business but as toon at the
old camel taw him he started on the dead run
for his unlucky victim. The man who has
idnce becume famous on many a hard-lftught
balile groud dl I not qoall from the attack ol
hii formidable antagonist and toon a Giacco-
Roman wrei'liig match of the most apprjved
slyle was laving place that w ul t cause even
ihe reili ubtab'e Muldoon In pile with envy.
The hero ol Geitrsbuig with a haven't got-
I .ng-tn live expression un his face wit tint
ihmn into the air hit heels n ilnting ttraight
rowardt Ihe heaven ant tne next mi ment
hurled with Inclinable force tn the earlh.
Several rourds were fough' h ut Hancock
losing his grip but Ihe camel was jul gelling
into ihe right trim for an all-day fight and
being within a few feet nf the fence Hancock
watched his opportunity and suddenly released
his hold and starred for Ihe house. How he
gnt over ihe 10 font fence has never been
satisfactorily settled and as Hancock was
always reticent on the subject it will probably
never be explained unless at this late day
he unbosoms himself.
Heavy Drinking.
From thoTomplu lUr.
How they did drink in the good old days I
The King once said to Sir John Irwin the
Commander-in-Chief in Ireland "They tel
me Sir John you like a glass of wine."
" Those who have reported that fact" an-
swered Sir John bowing profoundly "have
done me great Injustice ; I like a bottle."
Pitt and Dundas drank at one sitting seven
bottles at an inn on ihe mad to Walmer. The
Duke of Rutland killed hlmsell by drinking
all night and then eating six or seven turkey's
eggs lor breakfast. Claret wat the favorite
dunk in Ireland. A French traveler after in-
cautiously refreshing hlmielf with a tumbler
of whisky cried out "Le vin du paya est
diablement font" So it it ; but claret taken
In moderation hurls no man. When another
convivial Lord Lieutenant the Duke of Rich-
mond who of course being a Duke had
married a daughter of the Duchess of Gordon
was dining with Mr. Sneyd the great wine
merchant Mr. Sneyd drank so much nf his
own claret that he tumbled under the table.
Mr. Sneyd was lifted up and rrplaced In his
chair upon which somebody said "I believe
this It Ihe first Instance ol a Protestant lord
Lieutenant being present at the elevation of
the host."
