FORT WOETH, TEXAS, SATtrxfiDAY, JANUARY 13, 1883.
STATE SPECIALS CONDENSED.
Abilene, Jan. 12.—The Knights of
thiM have organized here with four-
members. About twelve car louds
tine sheep have just arrived from

llock, for many years a prominent

ally beloved by all who knew him.

on <$ty, Jan. 12.—The heavy
of sheep reported in this section
proved to be confined to diseased flocks
and such as had been driven here In bad
condition. No loss is reported from es
tablished and healthy flocks during the
late cold rains.
Denlson, Jan. 12.—The silver cup was
awarded to Mrs. Devoe of this city, at

resentaSlies, was buried here to-day.

count of her sickness, will return to

Tyler, Jan. 12.—A very interesting
case was decided In the United States
conrt to-day, in the suit of Jemlson &
Co., of New York, vs. Cage & Co., of
Mlneola, Texas. The plaintiffs sued the
defendants for a balance due on a future
contract. The defense set up the argu-
ment it was a gambling contract, con-
sequently against public policy and
void. The verdict and judgment was
rendered In favor of defendants. The
decision is one of no little significance,
as the speculations in futures have been
so numerous in every part of the state.
Weatherford, Jan. 11.—This morning,
sometime after 2, a man named lies-
sen, of Jack county, was knocked down,
just south of the railroad freight depot,
and robbed of four hundred dollars.
This morning, about 8 o'clock, Sheriff
Tackett arrested P. 11. Chalk and two
piano players of the Lone Star saloon,

edges that he knocked the man down
hut denies robbing him.

nnd Mayor Converse met Colonel Crock-
er and Mr. Spofford this morning near
the Pecos river, and a silver spike was
driven in, connecting the Galveston,
llarrlsburg, & San Antonio aYid the
Southern Pacific railroads. A friendly
banquet followed the ceremony, 'lhe
mayor of K1 Paso, on behalf of his peo-
ple. sent a congratulatory and friendly

Twenty-five bales of cotton were sus-
piciously fired and burned at Schulen-
fcerg station last night.
Of the special jury venire in the Ben
Thompsou case only six were selected
this morning, making eight in all. An-
other venire is called for to-morrow,
and It Is exoected that the jury will
then be completed.
Dallas, Jan. 13.—An old gentleman
named Hedge doing business at Green-
ville, was the victim of a confidence
swindle on the Texas & Paciliic train
between Weatherford and Dallas last
night, by a man named Morton, with
whom he had a previous slight acquaint-
ance. Morton represented that his un-
cle had recently died iu Weatherford
leaving hiui a large stock of goods,
which he was shipping to Greenville,
nnd which had a liability of $300 on
them, which would have to be paid at
Dallas, or would not be shipped lurther,
anu that he had plenty of money In the
bank at Greenville. He offered Hedge
a check for $1,200 to hold as security on
a loan of $300 which Hedge let him have
to pay a second party who appeared to
collect the liability on the goods. Mor-
ton and his confederate left the train
before reaching Dallas. The check-
turned out to be bogus. It was drawn
on the City National Bank of Dallas
and was signed by Beet, Guy & Co. The
Dallas police have been looking for the
swindlers all day, but up till midnight
have hoard nothing of them.
Wentworth Manning, who recently
made affidavit that his mail was being
robbed, withheld from him and other-
wise tampered with In the Dallas post-
office, and which caused Postmaster
Whissen to make affidavit aguinst him
charging him withpediiry, was brought
here to-day from ffieo by Deputy
United States Marshal Byrd and taken
before United States Commissioner
Bentley, who placed him under a $1,500
bond to appear for the examining trial
next Monday. The parties litigant
promise the reporters some rich devel-
opments as to the trae inwardness of
the local war In the Republican eamp,
THE FO&TT-SEVENTH CONGRESS
Washington, Jan. 12.—Mr. Ingalls in-
troduced a bill providing for determin-
ing the exigency of removal, or ittablll-
Ity of the president of the United States
to discharge the powers or duties of his
office. It provides that whenever two
heads of departments shall state in wri-
ting to the chief justice of the supreme
court of the United States that the pres-
ident is unable to discharge his duties,
the chief justice shall lay the matter be-
fore the court, where the question will
he decided. If the inability exist the
vice-president to be notified to assume
the duties of president.
Prof. Mitchell, before the Mississippi
river committee to-day expressed the
opinion that when the Mississippi im-
provements were completed, under the
present plan, a channel fifteen to twenty
revt deep would be secured in places
now most shallow.
At the close of the morning business
Mr. Plumb proposed to take up the bill
to enlarge the powers and duties of the
department of agriculture. Mr. Morrill
moved to postpone the calendar In order
'to proceed with the tariff bill. He did
this for the purpose of ascertaining
whether there Was any earnest purpose
to pass the tariff bill this session. A
•harp discussion ensued during which
Mr. Morgan took occason to say if the
bill could be destroyed by discussion
and amendments, it ought to be.
Mr. Plnrab had an earnest desire to
proceed with the tariff bill, but with
a due consideration to the other busi-
After further debate, and the adop-
tion of a resolution to meet at 11 o'clock,
Mr. Morrill withdrew the motion to
postpone the calendar.
The senate postoffice committee
agreed to report tne house bill provid-
ing for the issuance of postal notes for
the transmission In mallB of sums less
than five dollars, for which a fee of
three eei will he charged for each
IA bill 'A us passed granting the right
of way to the St. Louis and San Fran-
cisco llallroad through Fort Smith mili-
'lhe senate then went into executive
session to consider the Mexican treaty.
The executive session lasted three
hours and a half and when the doors
were re-opened the senate adjourned. .
Mr. Butterwortb. of Ohio, from the
committee on Pacific railroads, reported
a bill authorizing the Southern Pacific
and other railroads to unite so as to
form a continuous line of road between
the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
The house Iheu resumed consideration
of the shipping bill, pending the ques-
tion being on the committee's substi-
tute as amended for tlui eighteenth sec-
Mr. Knott moved to strike out of the
substitute all provisions for a drawback,
stating bis intention to be to strike out
the subsidy clause. n
Mr. Knott'B nation was lost—ayes 03,
After the rejection of the amendment
by Mr. Mljls, a vote was secured on the
committee's substitute, and it was
agreed to—yeas 134. nays 80.
The substitute, In brief, limits the
amount of the drawback to the tonnage
collected one year, and provides for free
ship© and free material.
Mr. Buckner, of Missouri, offered an
amendment to section twenty of the bill
prohibiting the alienation or voluntary
sale and delivery of vessels engaged in
foreign trade to citizens of any other
country or for the purpose of obtaining
a foreign register within ten years of
the date of certificates of registry. A
lively debate ensued, during which Mr.
Robinson, of New York, pictured the
anxiety with which a patriot in impris-
onment on a British man-of-war, [laugh-
ter], at Fort llenrv would look to see if
the star spangled banner was floating in
the air. It was with equal anxiety that
tiie people looked to see if the star span-
f:led banner stiil existed on the ocean,
le did not believe in this despair of
American ingenuity and talent, lie be-
lieved we could build ships and man
them and both in building and manniug
them beat the world.
Mr. Robinson, continuing, said one
old man on the banks of the Delaware
hud turned out of his yard within one
year twelve vessels to tty the American
Hag. That man was John Roach, born
in Ireland, that country where the great
Creator had established his principal
factory for the manufacture of great and
glorious patriots to supjply with a limit-
less supply the unlimited demands of
America for genius and brave men (ap-
plause), and coming a lonely boy to this
country John Roach had built up the
great American ship yard, and if he had
had fair play lie would have down
weighted tne Atlantic against all the
British influences and genius. When
some future American historian comes
to write of the great men of America,
one of the most glorious pages would be
that upon which the glorious Irish boy
would blaze most brilliantly. Mr. Rob-
inson, concluded with an apostrophe to
the American flag which the houBe ap-
plauded, and Mr. Buckner's amendment
The section exempting vessels en-
gaged In the foreign trade, carrying,
from state taxation, having been,
reached. Mr. Page of California moved
to strike it from the bill, in order to save
fifteen or twenty constitutional speeches.
Mr. Crapo of Massachusetts offered a
substitute for the fourteenth section,
which was agreed to, and which is the
amendment to article 2564of the revised
statutes, so as to read as follows: That
all materials of foreign production to be
manufactured In this country into arti-
cles necessary and used In the construc-
tion, equipment, repairs or supplies of
American vessels, employed or to be
employed exclusively in foreign trade,
Including the trade between tne Atlan-
tic ports and Pacific ports of the United
States, may be withdrawn from the
bonded ware houses free of duty under
such regulations as the secretary of the
treasury may prescribe, and if the duty
shall have been paid on such materials
so used, the same shall be refunded or
repaid to the owner or owners of such
vessels using them or their legal repre-
The following provisions were then
on motion of Mr. Dlngley, of Maine,
agreed to as the additional sections of
the bill: Section 230: wherever any fine,
penalty, forfeiture, exaction or charge
arising un^er the laws relating to ves-
sels or seamen . have been paid under
protest to any collector of customs or
consular officer, and application haB
been m«de within one year from such
payment for refunding or a remission of
the same, the secretary of the treasury,
if on investigation he finds such fine,
penalty, forfeiture, exaction or charge
was illegally, Improperly or excessively
imposed, shall have power either before
or after the same haB been covered into
the treasury to refund as much of such
fine, penalty, forfeiture, exaction or
charge as he may think proper from any
moneys in the treasury not otherwise
There is a new and greater Europe
rapidly springing Into political and in-
dustrial existence on this continent.
The great difference between the two
countries consists In the fact that here
each toiler in the fields and workshops
has no armed aoldter strapped upon his
back and no monstrous "retired list" of
pensioned noblemen to maintain. If.
however, "Republican" mastery had
been maintained through another ten
years, etery curse that weighs down the
wretched tollers and peasantry would
have cruahed America.

Preparations an being made to dis-
cover another comet. One that will
not get up bo early ia the morning is
at the state capital.
In the legislature yeaterday the pre-
liminary cutting out of a good deal of
business was gone througn with, but
nothing of general interest transpired.
A large number of bills and resolutions
were introduced, read and referred.
Precisely at 11 o'clock the senate,
headed by Lieutenant-Governor Storey,
came into the hall and with Senators
Shannon. Johnson, of Shelby. andChes-
ly, and Representatives Nash, Wilson
and McAlpine as tellers, the vote for
governor and lieutenant-governor was
counted in the presence or both houses,
with the following result:
John Ireland 150,809
G. W. Jones ......102,501
J. B. Robertson 324
Marion M«Cln 171,277
E. W. Mor?Jn 58.504
A. Young 19,220
The house spent the usual amount of
time and money In the discussion of the
resolution ordering papers for the use
of the house. It has always been a
vexed question in the house.
Dallas proposes to offer to Fort Worth
a branch lunatic asylum in exchange
for a branch of the supreme court.
There Is good reading between the
lines in that part of the governor's mes-
sage relating to public free schools.
The first resolution introduced by Mr.
Chambers, of Tarrant, after affirming
the old law for one-fourth of the general
revenue and a poll tax to be set aside
for free school purposes, provides that
the counties may be divided into school
districts, which can, by vote of the peo-
ple, levy a tax of not exceeding fifty
cents on the one hundred dollars, to sup-
plement the state tax fund. It also pro-
vides for the sale, protection, etc., of
the public school lands.
It is not positively certain yet that
Senator Coke will have the i?«natorial
course entirely to himself. WhlsperB of
another courser belug groomed for
the race are being heurd, and a "tall
gentleman," dreMed in black has been
sending and reHivlng telegrams very
rapidly for two days past. Whut these
whispers amount to no one can yet de-
fine, but not a few believe there is
"something of a surprising nature to be
hoisted all at once upon the people who
make United States senators."
Speaker Gibson is "silent as the grave"
when asked to indicate who will be
chairman of any particular committee.
The bill introduced by Hon J. H.
Robertson, of Williamson, and which,
it is claimed, embodies the views of
Commissioner Walsh on land matters,
will be one of the most Important intro-
duced during the session. It Is very
full, carefully drawn and coverstwenty-
four pages of closelv-wrltten manuscript.
It provides for the appointment of a
commissioner at a salary of twenty-five
hundred dollars a year, and knowing
ones predict this particular feature will
prove its death warrant.
The university regents are in the city,
busily preparing their report to be sub-
mitted to the legislature. It Is the gen-
eral opinion that the present legislature
will be more favorably disposed towarrd
this institution than was the lust.
It is understood that none of Gov.
Ireland's appoiatments will meet with
opposition wten coming before the sen-
ate for confirmation.
Senator Houston is making a Bplendid
* • m
plainly to be seen that he had misgivings
of his own power.
The audience seemed to take .In the
situation. Suddenly one of the auditors
—a big, Wirly cowboy, with a sombrero
at wine A*the Tabor stage—jumped up
from his Seat and pointea a pistol fair at
Frayne. Saying out, In a firm voice,
"Don't*shoot, or I'll pulverize you!"
Frayne glanced down at the resolute
looking stranger, and seemed to be glad
of his intervention. The whole house
took up the cry, "Don't shoot," and the
affirlghted woman tore the bandage
from ne eyes and said, In pleading tones,
"Don't attempt to anger that gentle-
man, Frank, he means what he says."
"Bet yer boots, gal, I do," replied the
stranger. That part of the play was
omitted for that night, and the Indians
had to be killed twice to make up for
the cutting of the programme.

Sara Jewett has performed many roles
upon the stage that has brought her
professional reputation, but in none
orore creditable to her than one of
which I heard the otlieipday, related by
a ultizen of Brooklyn. This gentleman
waa formerly In the business of bank-
note engraving, and became a creditor
of flara Jewett's father, who was at one
time an expert in the Burea of En-
graving anu printing at Washington.
Mr. Jewett was taken ill, and was af-
fectionately cared for by his daughter
until his 'death. Among her father's
papers Miss Jewett found a letter from
a lormer creditor, saying that he was in
want of the $50 that was due him. Al-
though Miss Jewett was in no way re-
sponsible for the debi, as her father left
no property, she at once Informed
the creditor that she would pay
the claim. The next day she
took a carriage, and, at much
personal ineonveniehce and the loss ef
valuable time, she found her father's
creditor and paid the debt. Curiously
enough, on the same day the creditor
received from the son of a distinguished
clergy man, whom he had befriended with
a loan, a curt refusal to acknowledge
the debt, which he had ample means to
deJjmy from a legacy left him by his
father. The domestic life of actresses
would make an Interesting book. Most
of them are in'uch like other wjomen off
the stage.—Brooklyn Eagle
Dead Heads Entitled to^Damages.
Philadelphia, Jan. 10.—Among the
cases of general interest decided by the
supreme court yesterday was that of
the Buffalo, Pittsburg and Western
Railroad Company against O'llara,
brought up on error to the common
Eleas of Forest county. Mrs. Ellen
'Hara, wife of an employe, was riding
on a pass between Oil City and Trunky-
ville. in Forest county. The train was
dashed into and she was scalded and
otherwise Injured. The jury awarded
her $3,000, which sum was reduced to
$2,000. On the face of the pass, In flne
print, was a clause purporting to be a
release of all liability to damage to the
person or bagsage of the party using
the pass, resulting from the negligence
of tne company or any of Its servants,
'lhe condition was in the following
terms: "Conditional that the person
accepting this assumes all risk of acci-
dent to his person or property without
claims for damages on this corporation.
Good only for the person named." It
was signed by the superintendent and
supervisor. The supreme court.held
that "a common carrier cannot protect
himself by special contract from liability
for negligence. Against his extraordi-
nary liability as a common carrier he
may protect himself by such an agree-
ment, but not from liability aB a simple
bailee. It may well be doubted whether
the provision in this pass being against
accidents can be held applicable at all
to cases where the injury has resulted
from negligence. If the free pass In this
case was unlawful, the conductor should
have demanded the regular fare, and
his not doing so did rtjDt make O'Hara,
or his wife trespassers or destroy their
rights as passengers." The lower
court's judgment was affirmed.
Why Frayne Did Not Shoot.
I was playing in a minstrel troupe one
season, and traveling through Texas.
One night, I think it wns in Palestine,
we missed connection and were com-
pelled to lay over. Frayne was then
playing "81 Slocum," with his wife as
Lucy Slocum. Aa he was to occupy the
opera house that night, I with several of
our troupe, went over to see the show.
The hall was a miserable tumble-down
frame shanty, lighted by candles and
lamps. The light, you maybe aure, was
not the beat in the world, but neverthe-
less the audience, which completely
filled the house, seemed to thoroughly
enjoy the play, and manifested their ap-
probation by loud shouts and huzzas.
When the tlmt came fpr Frayne to shoot
the apple off his wife's head, ahe waa
brought on the atage blindfolded. She
waa nerrou# and^xcited. and ahooklike
my baaa drum when 1 gave it a healthy
whack. The light waa too poor for
Frayne to s^e distinctly, and it waa
