the city attending to his business and
feeling worm nnd somewhat fatigued
he entered Iho Hunk Exchange on Market
street w ith Colonel Mcrwln and ordered
some refreshments. Shortly after sitting
down Colonel Merwin noticed that the
left side of Major Edwards' clothing was
tlon to the fact. Examination was In-
saiuraicu wnu dioou anu caned atten-
stantly made and It was found that a
wound which Major F.dwards had re-
ceived in the left side below the ribs In
adllllculty In-Austln some 1ft days ago
had re-opened and was bleeding copi-
ously. Medical aid was secured at once
nnd after considerable time the flow was
stopped nnd the Major conveyed to the
Beach hotel. Ills condition Is regarded
as critical by the physician In charge
who has placed bis patient under the
innuence ot narcotics anu ro-nignt lie
is resting quite comfortably. Major
Edwards toolc matters very coolly and
sat at the table In a pool of blood smok-

trying to staunch tho flow of blood.
St. Louh May 15. The situation here
Is practically unchanged. Hankers-and
business men generally have no appre-
hensions for the'rnture. Much satisfac-
tion Is expressed nt the resumption or
the Metropolitan bank and while a lit-
tle uneasiness was produced by the sus-
pension or Flsk & Hatch and a very
slight tinny created by temporary
trouble In Kansas City still the general
opinion Is that nothing -serious will re-
sult outside or New York. Consider-
able attention Is attracted however to
Donnell Law-son & Simpson and there
Is considerable desire to know the con-
dition oC that firm and what Is future
action will be. It has intimate relations
with and Is a correspondent of nearly
100 banks In Missouri some 00 In Kan-
sas 30 or -10 In Texas and has numerous
connections In all the extreme Western
States and Territories. It Is not known
of course to what extent they are In-
volved In this direction but tbelr In-
debtedness to Western bankers may run
Into millions. II W. Stephens of Boon-
vllle one or the most prominent bankers
In this State estimates In caso or the
complete failure of the firm that the loss
to Missouri will be fully $500000. It is
also feared that the loss to Texas bank-
ers will be heavy. A dispatch from St.
Joseph sayi that attachments have been
laid on Donncll's property In that city
to the amount of $00 000. James L. Wil-
son assignee of the St. Joseph Savings
bank which closed yesterday has taken

tion of affairs at once.
Luii iHi May 15. Uncle Sam's boys of

THE "RISING WAVE" TO OVERCOME
THE EVILS OF INTEMPERANCE.
The Women of San Anloalo Eihorted lo Bca.sl

III Hideout Mien.
A few-weeks ago one or tho leading
papers or the country described the tem-
perance agitation as "The Illstng
Wave" and spoke orihe present reeling
of tho people all over the country "as
a national nwaklng of conscience." An-
other one snys: "Not stneo the days of
tho Washlngtonlan movement which
was the llrst victory of total abstinence
nnd taught the people that drunkards
could bo reformed and saved has there
been so much thought and determina-
tion to put an end to the abomination
of strong drink." The tolling masses
whose utmost thrift can barely secure
modest comfort nro solicited and too
successfully to squander their hard
earned wages In drink. Tho tired arti-
san who visits the suburbs on Sunday
fur fresh air and change Is beset
with temptations to drink. The
youth who desires to "see life"
Is taught that Intoxication is
an essential clement of fun. The dally
and hourly lessons set before us ought
to convince the least thoughtful of the
need of reform. Everywhere waste and
extravagance and sorrow and poverty
ami degradation and crime aro tracea-
ble to this one evil. In such a crisis ns
this can the women afford to stand still
and let this giant evil destroy their
homes and sweep their fair land whllo
they make no effort to resist Its terrible
Again women or San Antonio and
friends of temperance we plead with
you on this subject which loo frequent-
ly saddens many of our hearts and ile
al royea our homes.
The questions forced upon us are
what heritage will wo bequeath our
children? who. In n few brief v'ears will
come up to contend with life In all Its
realities nnd how are wo preparing
iiiem io resist tuis deadly too r
Aro we of to-day assuming tho re-
sponsibilities plnced upon us and ful-
lining our ouugaiions so mat tuose ioi-
lowing will llnd this beautiful city as
famed for Its temperance and virtue as
It now is for Its health giving properties?
uero more man in most cuics are in-
ducements to draw the young Into the
places where Intoxicating liquors are
sold. Vice Is made so very attractive It
would seem to have lost Us "hideous
mien" for scarcely can our youth hope
to escape us entanglements.
Young men with correct principles
right Ideas of Intemperance and Its evil
accompaniments come to our city to
make it n home. In a fow- months they
are drawn Into these places where they
learn lessons that cannot be eradicated.
Mothers sleep and let such things go on
nerora tneir very eyes yea even in tucir
own homes. Who Is crjualto these things ?
Surely not one woman not a few but
n grand rally or every woman who has
n son a brother to save and not only
the sons and brothers but our daugh-
ters' surety happiness and usefulness are
to be guarded. What are our city's
needs? Not so much added manufactur-
ing capacity which would bring within
her gates Increase of wealth and popu-
lation; not so much enlarged commer-
cial facilities which would give her
clal racllllles which would give ner
power and prestige among l?er sister
