The troubles of the gentleman from Smith
must have once been great. The sympathetic
account given by Ca'dwell of Dorris in re-
gard to this episode were truly heart-rending.
He and tho young Dorris must certainly
have had a terrible time hiding in the swamp3
of Louisiana. The ways of the deserter
are sometimes bard. He had to protect
himself from the watery elements by lying
first upon one side and then upon the other
to keep up an equilibrium. This thing of
turning has become chronic in his case and
be still insists up the privilege to lie upon
either side 1
The case of Uoo Mexicano v. Hon. Ander-
son Dorris came up for final adjustment last
Saturday aad we understand was dismissed
by tho Mayor on the plea that knocking
a man down with a cane was cot a breach of
the peace. We suppose after this Radical
members of the Legislature may waylay and
pummel citizens with impunity so far as the
law is concerned. Bat if such an attack as
that of which Mr. Dorris is guilty is not a
breach of the peace what in God's name is
it? And on what grounds does Glenn cols
lect the larger portion of the fines that he
assesses upon culprits? But the course
pursued in the case of Mr. Dorris was with-
out doubt strictly partisan throughout and
should be so understood by the public.

November number of this periodical Is before
U3. The Journal is devoted to the dissemi
nation of phonetic shorthand and tho sim
plification of the art with a view to its more
general introduction into the schools of the
country. The editor Mrs. Burns is one
of those practical phonographcT3 who does
not believe phonography beautiful s it is
is quite perfect aad she is consequently de-
voting her leisure time to experimenting and
corresponding with experienced shorthand
practitioners on the subject believing the
few anomalies now existing in the system
may be removed. We da not supposo pho-
nography has yet arrived at that stage of
development when it can be said there is no
chance for further improvemeut and shall
therefore read the suggestions of Mrs. Barns
with much interest. The editor of the Jour-
nal adhears in the main to the sy3tem of
phonetic shorthand presented in thewo.ks of
Mr. Munson which we decidedly prefer and
which we recommend to those about to com-
mence the study of the arc. A practical
knowledge of shorthand is so useful in al-
most every avocation of life that we would
gladly see it introduced into our schools as
one of the regular branches of iiutiuction.

SPEECH OF A. DORRIS
Delivered at tlie Capitol Friday Evening
Ladi-cs a.-cd Gentlemen: It Clla my
heart with joy to see so many of the
younj' and lovely m this hall to-msht.
When I compare tho present occupants
of these seats with the tobacco
chewing whisky drinking swearing
cursing and profane men who usually
occupy them and who as occupants of
those seats sit to make the laws which
we must obe I can't help wishing
you youn ladies were the lawmaker
and I was your assistant and that
lady Dorris would not protest what
laws we would passandas for adjourn-
ment why Lord love your souls this
session of the Legislature would last
But the presence of so many laven
der scented young men with hair parted
in the middle and cultivating whisk
ers which in their incipiency resemble
tho mould to be found on the coast of
a stale pit reminds me that I was
called upon to address the young men
of Austin and I at once address
myself to the subject.
I wish you to go back to the days
when you were babes on your mothers
knees. What knew you then of poli-
tics? Did you cat'O whether the abo-
lishioners rave the niirser an aker of
mule and forty niggers of land? or
wuether L. J. Davis succeeded in Sc-
ceshiou and Ku-Kluxed the white men
of Limestono county? Not a bit.
Therefore why whoop tho child ?
Show me the young man who when
he goes to church or other like gaely
reposes to take his sister and I'll
show you a young man who's got crin-
oline upon the brain and prefers to go
Willi some other fellows' sister. It s
like the measles it's ketchin.
Tlicn why whoop the child '( Now
young ladies when you see a young
man getting round shouldered by to-
ting a long cabbage leaf cigar in his
mouth there's something behind the
cigar. Its a viper smoking leads to
drinking drinking leads to gambling
deloriuni tremaiis quack doctoring
swindling tho school fund and all
other things that's bad. I can prove
it by Dr. K. K. Smith now present and
whose sinjrle word is sufficient testi
mony upon anv of these points. Smok
ing is bad.
but don t whoop the child.
Now young ladies I trust you will
excuse my disultory remarks. I am
all flustrated. I have been harrassed
nearly to death for two days. I
don't blamo the good people of
Austin. But I do blame that long jack
legged lawyer whom you call Mayor.
But why under the sun you shotild
call him Mayor is a puzzle to me. It
is an insult upon the bosom cauipanion
of the horse. I don't blame Davis for
making him Mayor. They are friends
and the administration of cities in the
whole State of Texas is a proof of the
truth that Davis elevates his friends
to office and it also accounts for the
fools in office and the trouble made all
over tho State.
Regarding politics we try people as
chair makers if they fail we try them
as farmers if they fail we try them aa
herders of cattle. If they let the cat-
tle all escape and prove worthless as
herders we make politicians of tliera
and when too poor for a negro politi
cian wo pension them upon the school
fund as examiners supervisors and
teachers or make them heads of de-
partments. Now regarding my bill permitting
plurality of wives I defend it here
not for the sake of mankind; but when
any two women can agree upon any
one man and arc willing to support
him they should be permitted so to do.
It is uwt wrong.
Then why whoop the child !
Djiris thou proceeded to answer
questions that were propounded ns
our pinion on woman's suffrage
by E. II. Quick.
I am for female suffrage. When I
look around me and see men married
men men leaving children and wives
at home fond wives and loing afft-c-tionatc
children when I see these
men at halls and parties at theatres
and concerts aud cut buggy riding
with young ladies or still worse with
the wives of other men I cannot help
fooling that woman who sutlers in si-
lencc has a right to cast her influence
and hvr vote to make laws and society
what it should bo rather than what it
is. And if those men who grumble at
woman's rights would stay at home
become acquainted with their wives
and get an introduction to their own
children t'jis world of ours would be
better; it would do them all good to
hold tiie baby while their wives went
to vote. That's my opinion of female
suffrage. Hut if this is so
Why whoop the child !
Questions by Kev. G. W. Honey :
Did you keep time when Senators
Latimer aud Tyle run the race at the
Turn Vcrein ?
An.ver Never. This is a demo-
cratic lie got up f(..r electioneering pur-
poses. This lio was told on me ly
that Correspondence- Reporter of the
Statesman. Him as said I font the
Mcxic in about the eggs. I will now
tell you all about them eggs. I did
not lay them eggs myself neither did
I own the hen that laid them neither
was I acquainted with her. The Mex-
ican bought them of me and found
them like our htuiup-tail politicians
bad eggs he called mc a lie I plaster-
ed his head with a lump of butter for
which offence I have been persecuted
for two days by your mayor and his
nigger policemen. Iut that vicious
Statesman niis-state3 it ; it accuses
me of things I never did; it is becom-
ing a l'omeroy's Democrat and that
arc Correspondent is worse nor Drick.
But as bad as I hate him
Why whoop the child 1
Question Your opinion of hen fruit
Answer I consider this question
personal and refer the questioner to
his mother. But 1 wiil say if the fruit
that made daddy Adam that trouble in
the garden by the river Euphrates was
not au egg instead of an apple I am
as poor a bible student cs Georg
Question Do you thiuk the Govern
ment did right in arresting Brigham
Young for his belief in a plurality of
Answer No. I hold that women
seeing the great curse a man sometimes
proves to be have a right to take it in
homeopathic doses by clubbing to-
gether and twenty or more taking one
husband together ou shares. While
man finding one woman au angel has
a right to make a heaven of h:s own
by taking a hundred providing he can
settle the dressmakers arid milliners
Question At what age do you think
young men ought to marry?
Auh wer This depends entirely upon
the man. As this question is germnin
to my subject I willingly reply to it
and then close. There arc some men
who ought to marry at about the age of
one hundred; these meu start out with
such a strung loye for themselves that
they have no room in their poor hide
bound gizzards to enshrine God's
6weetest boon to man. These "frost
bitten" cusses can be seen daily exhib-
iting themselves behind some tassel-
eared horse on the public thorough-
fares. There arc others who ought to
marry at once provided they could
find 6ome angel of mercy willing to
consecrate her life to tho task of refor-
mation and the conversion of an almost
dissipated youth into a gentleman and
And lastly there are some who
before they marry should strive to solve
the mathematical problem of main-
taining a wife in fashionable attire
costing five thousand dollars per annum
upon a yearly income of two thousand
dollars; and inasmuch as great infeli-
cities of married life have ariz from
inability to successfully solve this
problem after marriage and difficulties
presented themselves which have only
been adjusted by a divorce or death.
I would refer such persons to one of
great experience in these matters the

Help at Last.
From tho Louie viile Courier-Journal.
It is a sad commentary upon the
present condition of political affairs
in this country that the very prin-
ciple of its organization is overridden
and the spirit of its existenco as
sailed in one of the principal States
and that tho people of that State
appeal to their fellowscitizens of the
common country without a hearing.
Though not so immediate in their
operation the violations of the Con
stitution and the disregard for tho
freedom of tho citizen which exist in
Texas are of equal importance to
the whole country. The present
condition of affairs there is danger
ous to the very existence of the
American system and should give
occasion for alarm to every Ameri-
can citizen. If this is not remedied
early its evil will grow and spread
permeating in its stealthy and
treacherous advance the government
of State after State and sanctioned
by the unmistakable tendency of the
present administration of the Gen-
eral Government until it takes pos
session of and undermines the or-
ganism of the Constitution and de-
stroys the chartered rights of err
This is no sudden outburst of
alarm sounded at the sight of some
questionable act of partisan legisla
tion or partisan administration. Our
convictions in regard to tho ten-
dency of this Texas matter are
founded upon a closo watchfulness of j
four years of oppression and despotic
misrule in one of the most promising
fctates of the enion and that by a
single man who is encouraged by
party leaders who were put in
power by the people on tho strength
ot their protestations to protect and
preserve the very liberties which they
are now destroying. And this is not
tho first time we have spoken out in
behalf not only of the people of
Texas who are now suffering but in
behalf of those all over the country
whom this evil is sure to reach in time
if it is allowed to go on unchecked and
unrcbuked. We havo called atten-
tion to it repeatedly and it has come
to be a grave matter when such
things are carried on in open day-
light under tho eye3 of the whole
country and the people are so slug-
gish of their rights and tho press so
dead to its province and its power as
not to raise a baud or a voice to re-
buke the offenders or defend the in-
stitutions under which they have
lived and prospered.
The people of Texas recognizing
in Senator Schurz tho leader of an
element of the Republican party lib-
eral enough to listen to them wrote
him a long letter several weeks ago
reciting their grievances and calling
upon him and through him upon the
liberal-minded people of the whole
country to consider their desperate
and dangerous condition. This let-
ter was published by a few papers
and received but a passing notice
from others. It was signed by a
large number of the most prominent
citizens of tho State and bore out
fully our statement of the condition
of affairs there. Yet the press and
tho public passed by a matter that
in the old days when the peoplo were
most watchful and sensitive of their
liberties would have waked up the
country from one end to the other.
It is useless to state again the
outrages which a corrupt Governor
backed by a corrupt and fraudulent
Legislature has perpetrated in Tex-
as. They have been published over
often. The hypocritical acts es-
tablishing a State IVice; a reserved
militia; regulating tho registration of
voters; regulating elections; estab-
lishing free public schools; regulating
public printing; levying and collect-
ing taxes; disarming the people; en-
abling the Governor to appoint offi-
cers and establishing thirty-five
official newspapers have under the
pretense of preserving the peace and
promoting the interests of the State
put an immense matter of patronage
and power in the hands of cruel and
unscrupulous man and deprived forty
thousand white people of the privi-
lege of voting. The respectable men
of the Stato have no voice in the
government but are ruled and out-
raged by a set of interlopers and dis-
reputable negroes who have got into
power by means cf fraud and hold
their places by the power they them-
selves have created.
At Groesbcck during the recent
election several of the Governor's
negro polico created a disturbance
and shot an unoffending old man.
The murderers were arrested by the
county authorities whereupon the
Governor declared martial law and
his thirty-five official newspapers
printed and scattered broadcast over
tho country startling accounts of the
violence that was being committed by
the Democrats. Gen. Reynolds the
military commander went to the
place and after an investigation de-
clared that martial law was wholy un-
necessary. Still he was unable to
remedy tho matter and the people
are still subjected to the rigors and
cruelties of bayonet law as executed
by tho Governor's police. Mr. W. C.
Tomlinson editor of the Groesbcck
Enterprise a Democratic paper was
arrested on charge of inciting the
riot by publishing an "extra" which
only contained an account of the
murder thrown into prison and al-
lowed to communicate with no one for
several hours when he was released
upon 10000 bail.
This direct assault upon the press
and the people is the last and most
dangerous act of this outrageous offi
cial. It is indicative of what may
await the inhabitants of any county
that dares arrest the Governor s po
lice when they commit cold-blooded
murder or any journalist that de
nounces such crimes and calls for
the punishment of those who com-
mit them. The muzzling of tbe
press is a new undertaking for Davis
and he will find it an exceedingly un-
profitable one. It was tried by Hoi-
den in North Carolina under about
the same circumstances and when
he lost his grip upon the bayonet he
found himself impeached and ousted
from the office which he had dis-
graced. The day has come when
the popular uprising of the peoplo is
a last resort. The battles which they
once fought are now left to the press
which has grown to be a power which
the mightiest rulers respect. It is
the voice of tho people and only
when it is completely trodden under
foot by the power of the bayonet
does it become necessary for tho peo-
ple to speak in propria persona. The
press of Texa3 is able bravo and
powerful and Gov. Davis will find in
it a dangerous enemy.
But will this be a fight in Texas
alone? "What we want to do is to call
tho attention of the Democratic par-
ty and the liberal-minded and pa-
triotic people of tho Republican par-
ty to the alarming tendency of this
maladministration of tho law and the
violations of the Constitution that
are perpetrated by tho party in pow-
er there. It is a sin that will be-
come dangerously familiar if we see
it too often and tolerate it too much.
The conditon of affairs in Texas calls
for the immediate attention of the
peoplo of this country who must hold
responsible those who placed Davis
and his supporters in power.

sing "Fodder dear fodder come home
with mo now."
A city man who knows all about
farming says the best way to raise
strawberries is with a spoon.
Amonc the chief attractions at a
Georgia fair is a patent incubator
which will hatch five hundred chick-
ens a day.
A remarkabl preacher was it who
called upon his congregation to be
thankful that Providence should
have placed death at the end of life
and not in the middle so that we
might have all possible time to pre-
pare for it.
A A'ovcl Wager.
A London paper informs us thy
a wager lately came off in that citat
the terms of which wcro as follows:
"I will bet any man X100 that
he cannot make a million strokes
with pen and ink within a month."
They were not to be mere scratches
and dots but fair down Etrokes such
as form tho child's first lesson in
writing. A gentleman accepted the
challenge. Tho month allowed was
the lunar month of only twenty-
eight days so that the completion
of tho undertaking an average of
0000 strokes per diem was re
quired. This is sixty per minute
or 3G00 per hour and neither the
human intellect nor the human hand
can be expected to do more would
call for ten hours labor in every
twenty-four. With a proper re-
spect for tho Sabbath the gentle-
man determined to ob3tain from his
work on Sundays and by this de-
termination diminished by four days
the period allowed him; at the same
time by so doing he increased the
daily average of his strokes to up-
ward of 41000. On the first day
ho executed 50000; on tho second
day nearly as many. But at length
after many weary days his hand be-
came stiff and weary the wrist
swolen and without interrupting its
progress over the paper it required
the almost constant attendance of
some friend to besprinkle it with a
lotion calculated to relieve and in-
vigorate it. On the twenty-third
day the million strftkes ex
ceeded by some thousands "to
make assurances doubly sure" were
accomplished. Ihese interesting
papers are not placed in the arch-
ives of the Royal Society of which
the gentleman is a fellow but were
claimed and received by the person
I who made the wager.
A Sleepj David.
In a certain small town on the
Mississippi lived a man who made
horse trading a business. He bought
up horses for a city market and
was considered pretty good on the
One day a long lean queer
green lookmg specimen of the West
em country arrived at the dock with
a boat load of horses. lie inquired
tor the horse jockey.
"Daddy sent me down with 6ome
horses" he said in a half idiotic
"Who is he?"
"What do you want for your
"Daddy said you could set yeur
price was the response.
"Let mo go down and look at
your horses said Brown and ac
cordingly they were soon at the
Brown examined the horses and
named the price he would give for
this one and for that and the coun
try bumpkin made no objection al-
though some of the offers were not
more than one-half the worth of the
animals. One of the bystanders
said to the countryman that he was
being cheated but he returned:
"Daddy said Brown would set the
price" and so Brown had it all his
At last they came to another ani
mal which did not look so superior
to the rest.
"I must have more for this ani
mal" said the fellow. "Daddy
says he can run some."
"Run! said Brown "the nag
can't run worth a cent."
"Daddy said so and daddy
"Why I've got one up to tho sta
ble that would beat him all hollow."
"Guess not" said the fellow.
"Let's try 'cm. I'll bet tho whole
boot load of horses on 'em."
"I'll stake five thousand dollars
against your boatload" said Brown
winking to the crowd; "and these
men selecting two "shall hold the
Brown's five thousand was in
trusted to one and the other went
on board the horso boat.
One of tho crowd started to re
monstrato with the idiotic fellow
but he only responded.
"Golly! dad told mo he could
run some and daddy ought to loose
as he was such a tarnal fool to tell
me that when he couldn't."
Brown's sleek racer was brought
down and Brown mounted him. The
countryman led out his animal and
clambered on his back looking as
uncooth and awkward as the horse
he proposed to ride.
The word was given and they
started amidst the laughter of the
crowd. At first Brown was at the
head and it looked as if the poor
fellow was to bo badly beaten when
suddenly his Lcrse plunged forward
and the jockey was left far behind.
Such going had not been seen in
those parts for a long time and
poor Brown was crestfallen as tho
cheers of the bystanders fell cn Lis
"I'll take tho 'spoudulix' " said
the countryman riding up. "Dad
was right. The anermal can git
around a little."
Brown tried to say it was a joko
but the fellow would have his money.
"I guess I won't trade to-day"

leather pocket-book "I'll go back
Sleep Tainting Apoplexy.
When a man is asleep his pulse
beats and his lungs play but he is
without sense and you can wake him
If a person faints he too is with-
out sense but he has no pulse and
does not breathe.
Apoplexy is between the two; the
heart beats tho lungs play as in
sleep and there is no sem;o as in
fainting but you cannot shake the
man back to life.
In sleep the face is natural ; in a
fainting fit it has the palor of death;
in apoplexy it is swollen turgid and
If a man is asleep let him alone ;
nature will wake him up as soon as
he has got sleep enough.
When a person faints all that is
needed is to lay him down flat on the
lloor and ho will "come to" in dou-
ble quick time. lie fainted because
tho heart missed a beat failed for
an instant failed for onlv once to
send the amount of blood to the
brain. If you place the patient in
a horizontal position lay him on his
back it docs not require much force
of tho heart to send the blood on a
level to the head ; but you Bet a man
up the blood has to be shot upward
to tho head and this requires much
more force ; yet in nino cases out of
ten if a person faints and falls to
the floor the first thing dono is to
run to him and set him on a chair.
In apoplexy as thcro is too much
blood in the head every one can see
that the best position is to set a man
up aud the blood naturally tends
downward as much so as water will
come out of a bottle when turned
upside down if the cork is out.
