ttlings. After the McKinley bill passed, a number ot European
manufacturers removed their works to this country. Eegislating
for European labor against the interests of our labor should be
called to a halt. It would seem true that "whom the gods wish
to destroy they first make mad"—or fools.

A nice side-show this sitting of Congress presents. Truly,
the action of some of its members is enough to make a decent,
respectable, professional burlesque company hide its head in
shame and envy.

OUR FRIENDS IN "OUR OWN LITTLE WORLD."
Other things being equal, you will do us a favor by giving the
preference to the goods that are advertised in your Texas Miner
by the vendors or manufacturers of such goods. We want i hem
to tell you what they have to sell and the merits of the goods.
We want your paper to be the livest weekly paper in Texas,
and with your assistance we can and will make it so.
If you want your goods consumed, in this vicinity, first, make
good articles, for our readers are able to pay for that kind ot
goods. Second, advertise them in The Texas Miner; our peo-
ple read our paper from title page to finis—they talk over what
they see in it they are our friends, and want to help us, and
anything they see advertised in our paper that we recommend
they buy that particular thing when needed, tor they know we
would not talk our write it up unless it had merit. If there is a
demand for any article the Texas & Pacific Coal company stores
order it. A word to the wise is sufficient.
OUR BRIEF TO THE ADVERTISING PUBLIC.
We have a coal town nearing 4000 inhabitants. Our paper
is the only one in our camp. There is not a man. woman or
child, that can read, in our town that does not read our paper.
It is essentially a paper for the people. They consider it
theirs, and that it represents their interests. The company's
"ads" are read as carefully as any portion of the paper, and so
will be any other advertising matter that is placed in it. We can
make a market in our town for any merchandise that is adver-
tised—we can make the names of advertisers as familiar as
'•household words" in every house in this town.
If this is worth anything to you. we should be glad to number
vou among our advertisers.
The paper, as you will see from the copy sent you, is not a
cheap "patent" sheet, and the style and matter will be continued
and improved upon if we have the ability to do so.
Facts are stubborn things. Our subscription list is growing
ves growing, even beyond our most sanguine expectations.
Some of the largest manufacturing establishments say in these
Cleveland times they must either "put down or shut down."
That means labor must suffer.
Small men occupying important positions are making the
business of the country suffer. • With wages and farm products
going down, down, down—soup houses will be our only means
of support if Cleveland and his minions keep on in their present

The World (newspaper) charity bread has reached over 500,-
000 loaves. Considering that the World has helped make more
than 500 000 paupers, with its gold-bug and free-trade doctrines,
it will only keep each one of her paupers a single day from starv-
Rumor has it that Grover Cleveland is again suffering trom
the malady with which he was affected some time ago. We al-
ways knew there was something the matter with Orover, and
judging from what we hear believe the malady is "tacks in the
All our correspondents write us that business generally is get-
ting "no better very fast." Cleveland's prosperity!!! When,
oh when shall we get rid of the present gold-bug-free-trade-labor-
reducing administration ? Have they no sense ? Have they no
pity for the masses ?
After the senatorial burlesque company which is now playing
at the nation's capitol in Washington, 1). C., has completed its
engagement there, some enterprising man—we would suggest
Grover for he is the greatest freak of all—take it out on the
road and give the people all over the country a chance to see
Have you stopped to think of the benefit that will result to the
state of Texas from the recent fall of snow? It means good
range; good range means iat cattle and you know what fat cat-
tle means to the cowman. Again the farmers wiil profit by it.
The snow puta wonderful season in the ground, enabling the
ground to give forth good and abundant crops. Texas! Why,
Texas is all right.
An Associated Press telegram from St. Louis says: "Wool,
little doing, with no change in prices." No, neither will there
be, in wool or anything else, until Mr. Cleveland stops legislating
in the interest of the gold-bugs and turns his attention to that
legislation which will be of benefit to the people. Stop monkey-
ing with the tariff, give us a law for the free coinage of silver at
aratio of 16 to 1, and ju>t se^ if prices on everything —labor in-
cluded—won't get a hustle on themselves.
Ir is calculated there will be a market for 8 100.000 bales of
American cotton this year from the beginning to the close of the
season. Did we raise and have that number left over from last
It is said that a number of manufacturing establishments that
manufacture specialties will move their works to Europe if the
Wilson bill becomes a law. That is reversing the order of
Civilization has a hard road to travel in ' Darkest Africa."
The natives of that country are in the habit of decoying the
soldiers and sailors, sent there bv foreign countries to teach them
the evil of their ways, into the interior. 011 some pretext or other,
and then when far away and cut off from all assistance, fall on
them in overwhelming numbers and massacre them. Africa
may be a good country and contain lots of gold, but we prefer
living in the United States and waiting until silver is once more
the recognized exchange medium of the world.
