In which will power appears to have
succesi'iilly supplied the place of faith.
Among i lie parlshoners of the Itcv. Dr.
Taylor of New Haven was an Invalid
lady who finally took to her bed where
she continued to receive her pastor's
visits. One bitter cold night she sent
for Mm lo console her dying moments
and declared herself ready to depart In
peace. "If It Is Ills will" slio said
"that I shall go to hell I can still say
'Thy will be done.'" The physician
who was present became a little Impa-
tient. "Well" sold he "If that Is Ood's
will and both you and your lainlly are
reconciled to It I do not know that I
ought to object." In a moment the
woman was on her feet shouting "i
won't die and I won't go to hell!" She
afterward enjoyed comfortable heallli
rut: Southern Exposition company of
Louisville Ky. aru endeavoring to work
up a boom for a national exhibition In
the Interest of agriculture horticulture
mineral and live stock which Is to bt n
farners' exposition of the great agricul-
tural work of tho country. The plan Is
to petition Congress to loan I lie South-
ern society 1500000 as an offset to the
property of that society now In Louis
ville; also together with appropriations
for each Congressional district of $1000
and for exhibits from the different de
partments of the Government amount-
ing In all to $'78000 In appropriations.
Congress loaned tho Centennial and the
New Orleans society $1000000 and It
could with equal propriety do the same
for the loulsllle society and thereby
give aid and encouragement to the foun-
dation of the country's greatness the
Ox the subject of the Aransas rail
road the Hondo News has the following:
This glgantlo enterprise which loomed
tip bo prominently n few weeks since
and which appeared to have been n
settled fact has Just simply "petered"
flickered" and gone out. by? lie-
cause the capitalists and business men
of San Antonio have not got the nerve
the determination and tbe spirit of pub-
lic enterprise to accomplish this desir-
able end. It Is a shame and a disgrace
that a city of the wealth the prosperity
the magnificence the great future that
San Antonio has to let this movement
tlrop down and die without a struggle
being made to prevent lis demise. What
Is being done with regard to keeping
Its vitality warm? Virtually nothing.
Look nt tho vast extent of ter-
ritory In this portion of tbe State which
Is naturally tributary to Sun Antonio.
Let her build this road and see what n
harvest of wealth would pour Into her
lap from the present undeveloped re-
sources of this country. It would In a
few years maM her the Chicago of
Western and Southwestern Texas. If
she remains idle and lets slip this golden
opportunity which lies In her very grasp
lets It go by for the want of a spirit of
enterprise then we any let her sink and
die In her Infantile splendor let her
great future go unbonored and unsung
content to be a mere attempt of a coun
try city a Bort ot n way place for
strangers to stop and look over old ruins
and Mexican huts.''

"Whix the celebrated Mr. Webster

The Ilrenhaui Ilanncr observes: "Hall'
road legislation has impeded railway
building In Texas to a far greater degree
than many persons suppose. The pecu
liar situation of Texas renders railways
the only means of communication and
the more railways we have the greater
the facilities and the greater the compe-
tition. Competition Is the life of trade
and It applies as well to railroads as to
any other branch of business."
"Tiikri Is no newspaper In the world
published at such a risk" says a corre-
spondent "as tbe Nihilist Journal called
the 'Will of the l'eop'.e.' Tbe lives or
all concerned In It from tbe edltorsdown
to the carriers are In constant danger
Even those who read It orhave It In their
possession If detected are lodged In a
foul dungeon or doomed to perpetual
labor In Siberian mines. No mercy Is
shown to the writers or printers con
nected with It and some of them rather
than to endure tbe tortures that must
Inevitably follow discovery have blown
out their brains when caught."
Last year Governor Ireland furnished
the newspapers of the State with ad-
vance copies of his message to the Legis-
lature which was to be published alter
It had been read but several papers with
a desire to appear enterprising published
It ahead of time 'this year however
the Governor seems to hare kept his
own counsel and his message until tbe
Legislature bad organized In working
condition and It was published yester-
day by only two popers In the State
betngthe Austin Sun and the San Anto-
nio Times. It is a creditable State pa-
per however containing the usual sug-
gestions which If oarrled out will add
to the benefit of tbe State generally
Tiik Waco Day says: "Under Hea-
gan's Inter-State Commerce bill If It
becomes a law by approval ot the Sen-
ate those towns In Texas which have
grown Into recognized commercial cen-
tres by reason of their railroad facilities
will see their trade scattered to a hun-

The Prohibitionists of Texas are pre'
paring for n grand assault upon the
Legislature by petitions asking that
booy to appoint a day some time in
August foran election on a constitutional
amendment of which the following Is
the form: "The undersigned citizens of
county Texas over 21 jears of
age believing that the will of the tna
Jorlty should rule and that an oppor
tunlty should be given to ascertain that
will and being desirous. If possible of
keeping the question of tbe prohibition
of the liquor trafllc from becoming a
party question and of having It settled
without regard to parly differences on
other questions of publlo policy do here
by ask that you submit to tbe voters of
Texas early In August. 1SS5 a constltu
tlonal prohibitory amendment provld
Ing that the manufacture sale barter
exchange or use of all Intoxicating
liquors whatsoever except for medicinal
mechanical sacramental and sclentlflo
purposes shall be forever prohibited
within the State of Texas and that It
shall be the duty of tho Legislature to
enact laws that will enforce such pro-
hibition. Witness our signatures." This
is In substance the amendment adopted
by Kansas and after lour years trial has
not been found to be satisfactory to any
great extent. There is just as much
drunkenness and drinking as before but
the cities do not realize anything In the
way of licenses. It Is true sellers are
arrested and lined but the lines go to
tbe State with no appreciable direct
benefit to the communities In which
they originate. Prohibition does not
prohibit but as It is a movement that
has to go through Its various stages In
almostevery State it Is moro than likely
that Texas will have the opportunity to
enjoy Its excitements and Its consequent
