St. Louis society is stirred by the

Changes the look, and cost of things.
Last summer Mrs. Rolla Billingsly,
whose husband is of the commission
firm of Nauson & Billingsly, re-
turned from Paris with elegant cos-
tomes. Two secret service detectives,
bbont two weeks ago, looked into
the case, and required Mr. Billingsly
, . to pay over $1,0Q0 as the result of
I. bis wife's trip,to Europe. Miss

than the intelligent thought that
goternf the railroad interests in this

There is necessity for railroad leg-
islation, and the railroad men aro
willing, as a general rule, to meet
the people and the legislature in a
spirit of liberality and fairness for
its consummation. They want pro-
tection and woll defined law regu-
lating and govorning many matters
concerning tho carrying business,
but they objoct to being choked to
death by unfriendly legislation, and
are unwilling to turn over their in-
vestment of near $200,000,000 to the
arbitrary control of inexperienced
and irresponsible individuals. Every
state in the Union has found it neces-
sary to legislate on tho subject, and
while some have been unfortunate in
the policy adopted, others have
struck the happy modium that as
sures protection and permanent pros-
perity td tho peoplo and to the rail-
roads, and where this is the case
good feeling exists between tho cor-
porations and the masses, and the
carrying and passengor traffic moves
smoothly and profitable to all con-
cerned. Cannot tho Texas legisla-
ture profit by tho wisdom and expe
i'ience of Others ?

truly setft in the weeklies'. The dallies

legislators will read public sent! meat

Of course, the esteemed cotempo-
rary speaks figuratively as to the
great disparity in the number of
persons who read the daily papers
and those who read the weeklies, but
he is near the truth when he says
"legislators will read public senti-
ment better if they will look to their
home journals/' but he is incorrect
in the sweeping assertion that "the
dailies have all at once found out
that there should ho no railroad leg-

been bold enough to put themselves
