FOR THE SEW YEAR.
We haven't entered this year
with a long* list of whereases and
resolutions. Not that %ve don't
favor good resolutions tbe year
around, or were afraid we would
break them all, thus causing
love's labor to be lost. Of course,
we are speaking in reference to
the newspaper work, and there
is no particular season for reso-
luting in that business. It takes
a man who always has tbe back-
bone of a boiler, the strength
of a pile-driver and the grit of a
grind-stone to successfully run a
newspaper, and be hasn't got to
lose any time making great de-
terminations. He must contend
oach day with conditions that re-
quire resolution as well as
strength of mind, body and char-
For the new year we are just
simply going to increase our en-
ergy to carry out resolutions and
plans we have heretofore made
and have been working on. We
have intended and still propose
to treat every man right who de-
nerves it, and endeavor to pro-
tect ourselves against those who
would seek to do us wrong. We
. want to meet our fellow-citizens
as man meets man and as citizen
meets citizen, with the belief in
our minds that be is a gentleman
and entitled to our courtesy un-
til tbe opposite is found to be tbe
We intend, as we have intended,
to work for tbe interest of tbe
people of Burleson county as well
as to promote our own interests,
adding our little effort to the
great struggle that is being made
to bring about peace and content-
ment and prosperity among tbe
bard working people, whose
cause is the noblest cause of all
and whose lot is equally honora-
ble as any given by God to man.
We are as determined as ever to
give to those who read the Ni:ws-
Chkonicle a paper that is clean,
nest sod elevating and as full as
it of honest thought
a political organ of our paper, yet
we expect to keep alive to tbe
spirit of politics and do all we can
for a decent «conduct of political
matters. We expect-to have our
favorites among men, like all
other honest men, and will have
political policies—though they
may not be frequently aired—
that we will not be ashamed of,
and that we will be ready to de-
fend as it becomes loyal demo
crats io do.
One more time we take occa-
sion to assure one and all that,
unless some dreadful disaster
occurs, when the new century
dawns, less than one year hence,
the Nkws-Chhonicm¿ will be found
still climbing on toward tbe top
rung of tbe ladder, and still the
crowning weekly of the state.
APOLOGY TO OCR READERS.
During the holidays there was
such an enormous amount of ac-
cumulated ad changes that the
adsmith on tbe Nkws-Chronicle
absolutely bogged up, and it was
utterly impossible to «yet the pa-
per out on time this week. The
situation, bad as it was, was
made worse by gross negligence
on tbe part of an employe in tbe
absence of both the manager and
editor. It is not often we have
made excuses to our readers for
being late. We believe this is
the second time since we have
been in Caldwell, some two and a
half years, and we hope and trust
it will not happen again in that
length of time.
Thkkk are some things we do
not fully understand. Humilia-
ting as it may be, we candidly
confess tbe fact. Last week
there passed through Texas a
party of Eastern capitalists-
through the very best commer-
cial, agricultural and horticultu-
ral portions, and by traveling a
little farther east might have
passed and witnessed a wealth of
timber resources, iron mine*, coal
mines, and many other undevel-
oped or partially undeveloped re-
sou-jes; they saw railroads that
needed branch lines and exten-
sions into virgin and productive
territories; they saw fertile lands,
and seas of grass, and cattle and
sheep on a thousand hill and in
as many valleys. They had also
passed through other states with
undeveloped wealth. But these
men of money were traveling
over, through and out of a country
where gold is the standard of
money value into Mexico, a coun-
try where the finance is based on
free aud unlimited coinage of sil-
ver, which we have been assured
with tbe boldest assurance is a
ruinous system—and actually go-
ing there to invest capital in rail-
roads, mining, manufacturing and
other enterprises. Are these
moneyed men daft, or do they
really doubt the theory that the
gold standard is tbe best for any
country? - Farm and Kanch.
Thkkk is soon to be put on the
market another book by Coin en
titled "Coin on Money, Trusts
and Imperiaism." Coin as a
writer on finance is too well
known to need an introduction to
any class of readers, and it is use
less to predict that this book will
meet with wide favor. The
friends of this writer are glad to
see him send forth a book on
these broad subjects, with which
the people are deeply concerned,
and especially are democrats ex-
pectant, because his books are
always matchless arguments in
favor of democratic principles,
JUST A LITTLE AD,
The following table is published for the purpose of «bowing onr
readers and particularly our advertisers the total weight of all news-
papers (second-class matter) mailed at Caldwell during the year 1 H J9,
and to show them what proportion of that total is credited to the
Total free mall (inside county) S',37 pounds.
Total paid mail (outside county) POUIM®i*
Grand total of all papers mailed at Caldwell, 7*363 pounds.
Total free mail* News-Chronicle 3*477 pounds.
Total paid mail, News-Chronicle 1.581 pounds.
Grand total of all News-Chronicle mail 5*05$ pounds.
Total free mall, all others combined 1,630 pounds.
Total paid mail, all others combined 655 pounds.
Grand total of all mail of all others combined. 2.305 pounds.
These figures include the weights of the Teacher, a negro paper
published in Caldwell, which must be credited with just a little less
than half of the figures shown in the last table.
Some people lie now and then, but figures don't. Read them an 1
draw your own conclusions. Respectfully,
In making his plans for the
new year each farmer should
strive earnestly to avoid, if pos-
sible, the giving of mortgages
and the making of obligations
that will after awhile become dis-
tressing. Remember if you plant
mortgages you will have to har-
vest mortgages, and don't be so
foolish as to be'iieve that because
one district ju4ge in Texas ban
held that a mortgage given on an
unplanted crop i void you will
not have to redeem one that you
carelessly give. It may seem a
long time until " next fall," but
that only gives interest a chance
to grow, and there is great prob-
ability of your condition becom-
ing worse instead cf better.
A man seldom becomes much
better in a day or even a week, so
don't think because you feel a
little better over tbe new year
that you can find lots of men
to our people to see that Burleson j
