Tlic grateful announcement comes from
Austin that no poker roams harebeen opened
and ai yet no legislator has been guilty of in-
dulging in the seductire excitement of a little
game of draw.

war paint the other night in Austin that is to
saj got on a drunk and indulged in his
favorite pastime of shooting out lights in an
attempt to paint the town red. Ben is a

It looks a little bit icconsistcnt for the
stockian at their meetiog in Austin to adopt
a resolution asking for a law prohibiting cor-
porstioni to acquire or own Urge bod'es cf
land in Texas when many of their represent-
ative men own whole counties almost.
Tin election of progressive men for Alder-
ssta on Monday will settle the future of San
Antonio whether it is to be a city in fact or
be fenced in. The discuision of the progress
of the city has had the effect to bring out good
men and the voters should select the best.
San Antonio eught to make a bid to sc-
ore the Odd Fellows' State home a buildiag
the members of the order contemplate erect-
iig where their sessions will be regularly
held. It Is to cost in the neighborhood of
$100000 and will be an ornament to any city.
The Louisville Courier-Journal man being
a safe distance from New England writes :
"Most of the New England girls marry In
November. The weather being cold the
bridegroom stsys in doors and is much lets
likely to escape than in the balmy simmer
Ir is a matter of some congratulation that
the coming Aldermanlc election is in every
riipect devoid of politics. It is in fsct a
race where the best man will w o. and If It
safe to aay that no non-progressive candidate
will be elected. Progress is ta be the result
of tkia election.

In vikwino the events of the past the
Memphis Avalanche saya that "in 184S the
Democrats were defeated on a square tariff
issue. It was protective tariff agalnat the
revenue tirilTof 1846 and the Whigs won. In
all the Presidential carapaigna from that year
until 1SS0 the tarifl cut no figure. The chief
limes beginning with the canvasa of 1S51
were questions connected with slavery war
and reconstruction. The Democrats fought
on a reform platform in 1876 and the tariff
was scarcely mentioned except In the platform.
But in 1SS0 the tariff issue became prominent
and the antl-ptnteclion declaration of the
Democratic party caused Its defeat. Perhaps
the parly leadera may learn something from
experience and perhaps not. The idea of
national protection to home induitriea waa
never ao atroog with the people as it is tc-
W Tin "Man on Ihe Avenue" In the
Washington Republican wanta an old
motto changed and jives the following aa his
reasons: "Give me money" said Ihe New
Yorker "and never miad religion or the
tariff. I hare stood at Union square and
watched people paaa day after day aad none
received Ihe homage of the popalace so fully
aa yoar millionaire. I have traveled the world
over and I find that money now ia king. A
fewyearaago men made goda of education
and freedon. Hut that era has passed. The
professor or theotogisn the philanthropist or
explorer can pass without salute but when
the Goulda the Vanderbllts the Singers and
the rest of the money world appear all the
salates which were known to the knighta of
old are given. Patrick Henry'a motto ahould
be changed It 'Give me money. or give aae
death I' "
The Piltsbarg Telegraph has bees con
trasting the condition of the laborer of the
present day with that of the laborer 100 years
go and finds that it has vastly improved.
Wages have more than doubled and the
hours of labor have been reduced from 12
hours to 10. Owing to the diversity of occu-
pations and Ihe tremendous development of
the mechanic arta a larger proportion of men
are working under roof aad are sheltered
from the weather. For this reason they can
otic more days in the year. The tendency
through the multiplication of machinery la
toward skilled labor and consequently toward
igher wagea and the agitation which ia be
ing kept up by the labor uaions for a reduc-
tion of the hoirs constituting a day's work
ill eventually result in the attainment of the
desired object. Upon the whole the workiag
people have reaaon to congratulate themselves
oa the outlook.
From tho Iloston Investigator.
These religious fanatics in maintaining
polygamy are carrying out the Old Testament
doctrine on that subject: and this is not only
ouropioion but that of Henry Ward Beecher
who being a theologian is well posted in ihe
Bible. In his Thanksgiving sermon Mr.
Beecher said of the Mormaca:
"There standa Ihe phenomenon of the
Nineteenth century. What is its power!
nrrcin uocs 11 consist! vvnat 11 it doing!
It is a spiritual despotism absolute. It is
lounded on tanaticiam and lcnorar.ee abso
lute. It is founded on a literal acceptance of
meura lesnmeni. 1 aon t see now a man
who believes in verbal inspiration can throw
nones at me .Mormons. Are tney polrga-
mlitit So is the Old Testament saint. What
aort of a fellow waa Solomon! In all his
glory he was not arrayed like one of these.
Murmonism in its religious philosophy is
simply the attempt to reintroduce into mod
ern economy Ihe instilntions and beliefs of
the Mosaic period of the Old Testament.
1 bey have no gorgeoua ceremonial. There
re very lew miDga that appeal to their im-
einatltm. And vet it is one of the most co
hesive bodies ! men that exist."
