Man Proposes Cod Disposes.
At tho rear of Doah & Kische' sa'oon
on Main street early this morning tho
dogs heralded the approach of strange
persons by tilling the morning air with
their sofc und musical bark. Mr. Itlsche

At about 0 o'clock yesterday a member

near Houston street and oamo dashing

Fast Time Saloon.
Yesterday ono from tho Celestlnl re
gions gave somu ollcnue (while drinking
In tho above nnined saloon) to two
brothers balling from tho land of tho
Montczttma8. Tho Celestlnl broke for
tho street; tho brothers giving tally ho
qulokly pursued. Tho former however
aided by tho wings of fear made fast
time and outran his opponents. A
most ludicrous sight was the Chinaman
with his pig tail streaming In the wind
and overy now nnd then casting back
ward looks wllh an Intense look of I-
hope-I'Il-get-away In his eyes. The
brothers gave up tho chase nnd their
thoughts of vengennce soon floated
away In n sea of whisky.
He Was Concerned.
Mr. John F. Gimp told a Liuiit man
thts morning that ho was much con
cerned on heating of the nrrcstofhls
man Franks which concern our o'teemed
evening contemporary seems to doubt.
Mr. Camp received a pcrmltfioiu Colonel
Valdcz allowing his mnn to cross the
river to hunt for lost cattle nnd It seems
that his authority docs not extend over
the custom house ofdeers one of whom
arrested Franks with Ids horse nnd
arms. On receipt of a telegram from his
man Mr. Camp at onco proceeded to Dr.
Ornclas and stated tho facts of tho case.
Tho Consul Immediately ordered the re
lease of Franks nnd Mr. Camp Is
anxiously awaiting tho result of this
Departure of a Worthy Citizen.

There aro certain subjects always hi
order in the welfare of all cities and the
writer thinks that this city should keep
before her people the advisability of
manufacturing Interests. San Antonio
must and will bo n great manufacturing
city thereby developing tho many re
sources nt her door. Suppose a few of
her citizens call n meeting of the City
Counc'l and lay tho Importance of said
matter beforo that body and ask that tho
city to encourago same do pass a law
exempting all manufacturing Interests
from city taxes for n term of ycnrsthcro-
by encouraging tho Investment of for
eign capital that said move may bo
considered favorably by capitalist! In
the East where money Is plenty nnd
cheap. If samo ho done and proves ns
It must bo a success then If des'red by
the parties who contribute their skill
and money In our midst let tv memorial
be presented Co the State Legislature to
co-operate In exempting tho said manu
factures from State and county taxes
Who will respond nnd take the lead In

REPORTERS VS. DIPLOMACY.
English Complaint Against Prattling Kings
iV very rcmarknhlo change In the habits
of diplomacy has hitherto passed with-
out remark says the St. James Gazette.
Much of its business Is now transacted
through tho medium of a certain sort of
representative of the press called an In-
terviewer. Quito within n recent period
the King of Spain the Prlnco Imperial of
Germany M. Ferry tho Chief of tho
rench Cabinet and the Marquis Tseng
tho Chinese AmbassnUor have been
found among tho high personages who
have chosen this means of expounding
their views nnd sentiments on matters
of the gravest Importance. Whether
this novelty In the conduct of diplomatic
Intercourse Is dcslrnblo of the reverse
may be questioned. That It constitutes
departure from all tho best traditions
of diplomacy Is clear. Nor Is It less n
lolatlon of that unwritten law which
has hitherto governed tho relations of
ministers nnd responsible statesmen In
the conduct of the matters Intrusted to
The practice appears to be an Impor
tation from America where dlplomncy
can hardly bo said to exist where any
Intelligent citizen Is supposed to bo com-
petent to represent the Itcpubllo nt any
of tho courts of Europe nnd where
therefore there nre no prejudices to be
shocked. In fact tho new practice Is all
in accord wim mo iceting so oiten ex-
pressed by Amcrlcnns that secreoy Is
superfluous and unnecessary In nlValrs
of State. Secret diplomacy has been
treated ns n worn out old world system
nnd tno natural outcome seems to tie u
llplomaoy lu which newspaper corre-
lonuenis are me cuici agents j.iu is
thts to he tho diplomacy of tho future?
And Is It n good thing that atl the vary-
ing phases of International discussion
and dispute Bliould be displayed In the
columns of tho newspaper press? It is
time to asK tne question ii wo are to
have more such ex-ofllclo utterances on
endlnir nuestlons ns that letter from
the Chinese Ambassador to the editor of
a German review.
In this letter "ills ExcellencrMarauls
Tseng begs to express his indebtedness"
to the snlu editor for tho desire he ban
shown "to see such a solullon ns China
could honorably accept" In tho Tonquln
question. After this p.vambletho writer
goes on to say: "ou nro desirous of
ascertaining whntate the lines on which
China would be prepared to come to an
arrangement with Franco on thts sub
ject" and proceeds: "To save time In
ndlcatlmr these. 1 now forward you n
cutting from the Times of tho .list of
December as containing what was at the
time It was written a preity accurate
expression of tho views of tho Chinese
Government" etc. going on to explain
how In Ids own view tho situation may
hare changed by tho capture of Sontay.
But our concern at this moment is not
with what tho Marquis Tseng.may havo
thought tit to reveal to tho editor of a
German review cither as to his own
opinions nnd policy or those of his Gov-
ernment nt Pekln but what is the prob-
able cll'ect upon tho negotiations be
tween l-runco iiniiunina ot sucu oratori-
cal excursions In the ptiblto press. As
for that however we have only
to look Into tho newspapers of a few
days to sco that the result may be a
good deal of qtilto unncccssacy Irrita
tion jvor ino rest wiiniever may oo
the opinion in the United States us to
the worihleBsness of reticence in Inter
national business tho Americans are
much too shrewd a people not to bo
aware ttiat in private utiuirs it wotuu ue
ltnposslblo In many cases to arrive at
any satisfactory conclusion on such lines.
Tho conduct of negotiation of dispute
between different governments Is less
likely to end well if it is carried on with
n chorus at hand to comment on each
act and expres3 more or less violent
opinions about it. In diplomacy as
hitherto conducted tho chorus has been
dispensed with; nnd Its introduction
will not conduce to the satisfactory ar-
rangement of dlll'erences between rival
States or even inenuiy ones wuen con-
flicting Interests are in question. The
blame of this order of proceeding does
not lie with t lie newspaper reporters out
with the princes ministers and other
great personages who allow themselves
