mlUAT JANUAUT 25 181.
Congrjss has not so far done mnch work.
In the Houie the Committee on Ways and
Means and the Committee on Appropriations
seem to be watching to see which one will
make the most serious mistake.
Trunk is a talk in Austia abont extsidiag

The woods will be full of ex-stiteimen next

Lynch law should cow be aboliihed la
Texas bj public opinion. There is do longer
any excuse for lynch law. If grand juries will
only do their du'y by Indicting the lyncheis
for murder lynch law will very soon disap-
pesr aad the legal tribunals will mele out
punishment for crime.
Tilt Democrats in the Kentucky Legisla-
ture have not been able to agree upon a can-
didate for Unhid States Senator and it is
probable some "dark horse" will bear off the
prize. The present incumbent 'Cerro Gordo'
Williams will not be re-elected but his defeat
will amount to no loss to the Union or to
Tut Democrats in the United States Senst e
evidently intended by their vote for Pendle
ton for President pro tern to administer a re-
buke to the Ohio Legislature for pitching
him overboard and electing Payne to succeed
him. But the rebuke will mike no manoer
of impression on the supporters of Payne
who arc opposed to civil service reform.
Senator Cuilou of Illinois delivered in
able and interesting spsech in the Seriate
upon the Mormon question in which he took
strong ground in favor ol the suppression of
polygamy. His plsn Is to govern the Terri-
tory of Utah by means of a Governor snd
Council to be appointed by the President
and thus to get rid of the Territorial Lcgisla-
tore composed of Mormons. Ills plsn seeras
to be both constitutienal and feasible and we
trust it mav become a law. as nnlmnv nn.lii
to be put down. The sentiment of the people
oi ine entire union win a lew scattering ex
ceptions Is decidedly in favor sf the suppres
slon of polygamy.
Tux New Votk Herald discussing the pot
tsl telegrsph question says: "What iswantn
it a healthv competition and the Ftmnn.
bill wisely provides for this by declaring that
naming in this act shall be construed to
prohibit individuals or corporations from
carrying on me Dustness ot operating tele-
graph lines.' Senator Edmunds does not
believe that the Government could not buy
out existing companies at any fair or reason-
able price and therefore he believes that 1 1
should build its own lines. But he also seems
to think that this policy on Ike part of the
Government might eventually force the com-
panies to sell out at satisfactory figures In
which case he admits it might be eipedient
for the Government to buy. But the sound
cess of 4his view is open to questian. The
future purchase of existing lines might lead
to the danger of a Government moaopoly
and this as we have said is an evil to be
The action of Fraace and Germany In pre-
hlbltlog the Importation of American pork
under pretence that it Is unsound and un-
wholesome as ai article of food has aroused
considerable feeling among the pork packers
Vfthe United States and led them to petition
Congress to adopt retaliatory measures which
will have the effect of inducing France and
Germany to cancel their unjust and unfriendly
prohibition. There can be no doubt but that
American pork Is as sound and wholesome
as the pork which Is raised la any country on
the globe and that being the case it is emi-
ently proper for the Government of the
United Slates to exclude some of the products
of France and Germany so long as those na-
tions continue their prohibition against the
importation of American pork. Such a
measure is necessary to 'the protection of
American pork packers and dealers who are
seriously damaged by the unfriendly action of
France and Germany.
Tin Galveston News says: "A corre
spondent thinking to assist the Legislature
with a suggestion to adjust land matters
makes the following propositions t 'Take
the 3d parallel as an tast and west line and
from the centre of it run a north and seu'.h
line through the State. Then commencing
from this centre sectlonlie the whole State
leaving or cutting olTof each section 30 feet on
the first tine or Co feet from the two adjoining
sections for a public road and every filth sec-
tion each way do the saaae. This will give a
public road every five mites north and south
east and west all over the State and In the
more thickly settled portions let a 40-feet road
be left between every section. This will stop
feace cutting and give the much needed and
permanent straight rssds to the public. I am
well aware that this would entail a heavy ex-
pense and greatly tncoarenlence a great many
at first but as to the espente it would enable
the tax collictors to collect taxes un every acre
of land while nailer the present system there

Sin Antonio needs a cation factory and a
woolen factory to render her permanently
prosperous and steadily growing and it only
surprises us that our shrewd business men
and capitalists have overlooked this fact so
long. An Inland town must either be the
entrepot for the vsried products of agriculture
grown in the surroundiog district or the seat
ol manufacturing establishments in order to
attain a solid growth. A temporary boom is
more hurtful than beneficial. It is a truth
known to all who have studied the matter that
Southwestern Texas Is more of a grazing than
a farming country and that an exclusively
grazing country is never likely to become
densely populated. The trade in wool and
hides cannot convert San Antonio Into a city
of 75000 inhabitants consequently she must
turn her attention and capital Uwards
fsctories. These will give her a steady and
solid growth as well as great riches. Work-
ing men spend all they earn in the place
here they Xve and their trade enriches those
ho are so fortunate as to receive it. What the
rich men and women of San Antonio spend
in our city is a mere trifle in comparison with
the sum total of the mites of the army of poor
people. Factories are just the thiog for Ssn
Antonio and the sooner they are started the
better for the future of our city. Every en-
couragement should be given by our municipal
authorities as well as our citizens to this sort
A correspondent from Monterey to the
Laredo Times gives the following regarding
the recent changes in Mexican po stsl matters
'The new postal law. which went into effect
here January t bss made some radical and
salutary changes in that important branch of
the public service. The postage of the interior
of Mexico has been reduced from 35 cents to
10 cents and the postage stamps which could
formerly only be affiled to letters to be sealed
in the office where the stamps were purchased
are now allowed to be used anywhere the
same as in the United States. Nevertheless
the new law is hard on newspapers. The
Monterey Revnta which charges $11 a year
to subscribers out of the city has to pay $7 50
for postsge consequently there is tremendous
grumbling and the Kevista has reduced Its
size nearly one-half. There is also an article
according to which the publisher of any news-
piper mutt guarantee Its existence for a period
of at least slx.months in order to have it reg-
istered for transmission through the mails
This necessitates giving a bond for a consid-
erable amaunt of money which is another
drawback for Impecunious newspaper men.
What makes the matter still more complicated
Is that there is only one copy of the law In
town and that belongs to the postmaster who
will scarcely allow it to be looked at. The
Kevista insists that the taw has beea passed ta
vhoke offunlrieadly newspapers while others
think that the poslmsster Interprets the law
On the subject ol the commercial treaty
with Mexico the Chicago Times says : "The
ejection of the Mexican treaty is to be de-
plored not so much on account of any Imme-
diate advantages this country would have
realized by being brought into more intimate
commercial relations with its southwestern
neighbor as on account of the importance of
the luture commerce that the treaty probably
would have brought to our doors and that
by its rejection the Senate has said we shall
not possess. Hitherto the bulk of the foreign
commerce of Mcxica has been controlled by
England. Its amount has not been great:
yet thrifty Britain has not spuraed it because
it has been small. Now when all conditions
and appearances point to a speedy growth of
that commerce to large dimensions Mexico
says to America 1 We Invite you to share in
our foreign trade on better terms than we can
give to any other country j we propose with
respect to a few important commodities even
a compact of free trade between us which si
we arc soon to be united by great lines tf
quick and easy transportation we believe will
result to our mutual advantage.by transferring
to you the bulk of a commerce that hitherto
has subsisted between us aud England To
this proposition the American Senate has re-
sponded (by the deciding voice of one poor
Individual N Senor Mexico I We reject
your offer to trade wllh us j we spurn your
commerce having no wish to extend our own
and are quite willing that our English cousins
should continue to possess and enjoy it. The
spirit of this response may be magnanimous
may be the spirit of that sacrifice of .self for
the goad of somebody else which is said to
be a Christian virtue but It Is not that which
has been most approved by the wisdom of
