reception to be tendered Lucy Par-
sons, the wife of A. R. Parsoriis, on
her return from Europe, which is
expected about the 15th to 20th of j the political electricity for that
December. Her friends in Chicago
intended a similar demonstration,
but the chief of police of that city
will not permit it. The following
statement from him is pointed and
"I shall refuse to grant a permit
for any demonstration," said Col.
Hubbard last night. "If Mrs. Par-
sons comes to this city and goes to
her home like any ordinary citizen
she will not be molested, but if she
or any of her friends think they
can parade the streets of Chicago
behind a brass band as they did in
London they will find themselves
greatly mistaken. There has been
enough of this foolishness in times
past and anarchy will never be

city again as long as I am chief of
The tragedy at Birmingham,
Ala., in which about a dozen l£es
were lost and a number of people
wounded on December 8th, is in
many respects the most sanguinory
encounter between officers and a
mob ever recorded in this country.
R. 11. Hawes, a railroad man, was
suspected of the murder of his
wife and little daughter and ar-
rested. A large mob of enfuriated
citizens collected at the prison
where the sheriff', anticipating an
attempt to lynch the prisoner, had
made preparation to protect him.
In order to repell the mob the
sheriff' and posse were compelled
to fire with Gatling gun and Win-
chesters, several citizens fell mor-
tally wounded during the melee, a
number of whom have since died.
Mr. Throckmorton, the postmaster
of the city, being one of the num-
ber. Unfortunately those who
were present for the purpose of
quieting the rioters were the prin-
cipal sufferers. All the available
militia of the State were called to
Birmingham and stationed round
the jail to protect the prisoners,
now including the sheriff' and posse.
The evidence against Hawes, the
accused, was only circumstantial
though quite strong.
Why is not a farmer as good as a
banker in the eyes of congress ?
One is offered a twenty years loan
at 1 per cent—the other is offered a
blank cut-throat mortgage for him
and his wife to sign and swear to,
and then sweat under the shadow
of it until sweating won't save
place. A forest of the rods will no
doubt reflect the glitter of the sun
beam before mid summer of 1890,
but there will be one that will
tower above the balance like a long
leaf pine above the schaparcll, and
that conductor will direct the pop-
ular current to Attorney-General
Jas. S. Hogg. It is inevitable,

l"he dispatches state that in a
suburb of Chicago the anarchists
gave an entertainment, one of the
features of which was a tableau
wherein a representative of the
order trampled upon the stars and
stripes and waved a blood-red ban-
ner. Law was represented as ter-
rorized by a sword held at its
breast. The 10,(XX) anarchists
present cheered the tableau until
they were hoarse. A battery of
eighteen-pound guns, well charged
with grapeshot should have been
turned loose upon the tableau and
the audience. Chicago is evidently
getting a "good ready" for a repe-
tition of the Haymarket explosion.

The above extract is taken from
an article in that excellent paper,
the Live Stock Journal, published
at Fort Worth, and serves to show
what can be done in growing im-
proved cattle. A farmer in this
mild climate could grow this class
of stock with profit. Steers of the
class above described are worth
more than Texas ponies and can
be rsised with less exnense.
Mineola, Dec. 8, 1888.
As the county judge has ordered
an election to determine whether
hogs, etc., shall be permitted to :
run at large, I desire to say a few-
words. In my opinion the act of
the Legislature itself is unconsti*
tutional. Art. 4599, Revised Stat*
utes, provides that no one but free
holders can vote at this eleotion.
This Article is in plain violation of
the Constitution, Art. 6, Seo, 2,
which declares that "Every male j
person (except those mentioned *
above) who shall have attained the
ago of twenty-one years, and who
shall be a citizen of the United
States, and who shall have resided
in this State one year next preeced- >
ing an election, and the last Bix
months within the district or counr
ty in which he offers to vote, shall
also be deemed a qualified elector,"
etc. I am not aware that the ques-'
tion has been adjudicated by the
Supreme Court, but am satisfied
that if the question ever comes be-
fore them they will hold that the
Legislature has attempted to en-
graft in the law a qualification not
authorized by the Constitution.
