Tho Daily Democrat takes great

tios of his position. It ib tho mis-
sion of the Daily Democrat to epito-
miso tho day's doiners in tho city and
vicinity, and to labor for tho bost in-
terests of tho corporation and its in-
habitants. Without tho hearty co-
operation of tho ciltaens with tho
news gatherer and writer-up of gen-
oral and special interests, tho useful-
ness ot the evening papor must be cir-
cumscribed, but with energy, indus-
try and ability on his part, rousonably

welcome and indispensable visitor
into every business establishment
and household in tho city. When

The total debt, including interest, is

for 1881, is stated at. $2§5,428,608
Of this aggregate, 8107,773,148 was

bank notes 1 Wouldn't tho saloons
and cigar dealers pocket the year's
money product in two hours?

Tha Real Estate Pulsf.
The real estate market has been some-
what dull during the past week, a fact
that might he expected when the state
of the weather is taken into considers*
tlon. A Dkmockat man in search of
"points" was informed by the Junior
member of the tlrm oflt. T. Twombly
& Son, that sales had been very few and
far between during the pust week. He
attributed tho unusual dullness to the
state of the weather, und thought that
business would boom when the Btm
shone out full again. Inquiries were
numerous, ant^Mr. "/I'wombly thought
that a strong immigration would set in
in the spring. Prices remain good and
Mr. T. P. Martin, of Kneeland, Little
John & Murtin, said that the past week
had been unusally dull, but still his
firm made a c.ouple of good sales. There
is a great demand for houses to rent,but
transfers of real estate are rare.
Mr. Alexander, Texas Investment Co.
said that he had not done much during
the past weea. lie attributed the dull
ness of the real estate market to the ex
traordinary high price asked fox land
The weather had something te tfo with
the dullness of the market in the city.
Zune Cetti said the market was ex-
tremely dull. The rental business was
very good, especially for residences. lie
attributed the general dullness of the
market to the business failures occur-
ring lately, but thought the unpleasant
weather had something to do with it.
Frank James is not to havo easy
sailing after ail, and tho froo port is
not yet in sight for him. Ho is
wanted in Minnesota to answer for
the Northfield robbery, but Gover-
nor Crittenden declines to surrender
him till tho charges ponding against
him in Missouri aro disposed of. It
is thought tho courts of Minnesota
will apply the cold facts instead of
sontimentai sympathy to his case
should thoy ever bo called upon to

Sam Kandaix blows ht>t and cold
on the tariff bill, and seems to be try-
ing tho impossible bareback feat of

How he can now hope for the sup-
port of any party for tho speaker,
ship can only be accountcd for on
the hypothesis that bo imagines all
the world an arena for him to hustle
in, arid all tho congressmen merely
idiots to' giggle at his antics.
SPARKS FROM THE WIRES.
This is not at all smart, and not
very funny, but it is blasphemous :
The motto "In God We Trust,"
doesn't appear on the new nickels now
being minted. The St. Louis Post-Dis-
patch says: "Its erasure from the coin
of the country indicates that the bright
dawn of Democratic tritimph is almost
here, and the government is going to
take its books out of the hands or the
Almighty, who was the only person
capable of such trust during Republi-
can rule, and give them into the keep-

The severe cold did not reach Presidio

In that region.

rested in Dallas yesterday for fraud and

Prince Napoleon was Imprisoned and

Uncle Johnny Haley, who died in
Waco on February 7th settled on South
Bosque in 1868, and has since been en-
gaged ldrgSly in farming. He was from
Williamson county, Tenn., and was
seventy-nine years old.
In McKinney they think the peniten-
tiary a proper place for kleptomaniacs
and accordingly sent Dr. Brownlee, for-
merly of Tndlana, In for five years; The
doctvir diagnosed his own case, and the
law provided the reinedy.
William E. Dodge died in New York
yesterday inorhlng, February Dth. He
had been ill a week, but it was thought
not seriously. A brief telegram, but it
carries news of the death of one widely
known and held In high regard.
On Tuesday evening Mr< and Mrs.
Wm. Newton of Morgan, took the Cen-
tral train for Waoo. A neit passenger
on the Pullman sleeper was added to the
list at the East Waco depot, where the
officials of the train graclousljr waited
thirty mindtes over schedule tlttife to
welcome the little stranger. •'
The starving poor of Donegal, Ire
land, "would rather die than emigrate."
So they informed Mr. Wood house, poor
latir Inspector at Glencolumvill, when
he advocated emigration in answer to
the demand for employment on Thurs-
day. The Irish millionaires of America
could carry Donefeal,Wlthoat feeling
the burden, till the next crop is made."
The safe of Mr. A. J. Handle was
blown open Friday a. m. a little after
12 o'clock and robbed of $946. Only one
hundred and forty was Mr. Raridle's,'
the rest being deposited for safety.'
A hole was drilled into-the door near
the lock and tilled with powder, then
tire was Bet to It and the lock broken.'
A very simple process for professionals.
The burglars have not been detected.
Should the weather .moderate suffi-
ciently to inelt the Immense fields of Ice
and snow, in the valley of the Missis-
sippi and the great northwest, another.
destructive overflow of the father of
waters may be expected. The Ohio Is
raging and all. its tributaries are high
and rising.. A similar flood from the
WeBt would be AisastrquS to the same
territy so fearfully visited last year.
How sad! William Lewis who was
appointed district judge by the late ex-
Governor E. J. Davis, was saved In Dal-,
las, on Wednesday night, from dying
from a dose, taken, it is supposed, with
suicidal Intent, on hearlnar of the death
ofE. J. Davis. The eccentric has con-
siderable money, wears fine clothes,,
allows himself only such morsels offood
as barely sustains life, lives in wretch-,
edly filthy premises, and yet a doctor

remarkable men of the age, and one
whose name and fame Is intimately In-
terwoven wjth the history of the Con-
federate States, has beeh advised that
the state of his heart will not permit
him to make a protraoted argument In
court with safety. Hjis health is other-
wise good. He can afford to rest on his
laurels, having attained, such eminence
In legal matters as was never before
reached by any foreigner in, her ma-
jesty's dominions, lie is still a great
counsellor, if he has not the physical
ability to make the argument.
A mob of two hundred pttacked the
Benos Altos Mining coihpany in Chihua-
liua, last Sunday morning. The em-
ployes resisted and Manuel Nuohal,> a
clerk, was killed.' Buchan Hepburn, a
wealthy man who had considerable in-
vestments in Chihuahua, after a con-
ciliatory address to the mob, finding
himself met with Insult, hurried back to
his house and was killed as he entered
his own door. Four men were killed in
a fight which occurred four hpucs later.(
The authorities and citizens captured
five of the ruffians, among them Hep-
bum's inurdererB, who were trieel and
executed Monday. The city is qulet,^
but officers are in the mountains in pur-
suit of the criminals.
The senate committee learned a good
deal yesterday from Mr. K. Foster, of
Massachusetts, who is throwing a flood,
of light otl the customs and usages of
manufacturing districts in his state. He
says the Frtnch-Canadlans are to tl •
