It ia uaJeretoo.1 that the Finance Commit
tee in the Senate is proposing to introduce
lull re viirins all State warrants issued be
fore tbe fifteenth of January test to be con
verted into bonds of the State bearing eight
per cent interest The effect of such a law-
would be most unjust in its effects and re
sult in the most serious injury to those who
have acted upon the faith of the State. To
prove this let us consider what a State ob
lation is. Is it not to be viewed in just
the eame light as an individual contracw
Is not a warrant issued by the Comp
troller a solemn promise that the State will
pay its face value to the holder ! And
sheuld it not be the first duty of tho State
to provide means to pay all auch certificates
of indebtedness t Vie claim that the State
possesses no rightrto abridge the claims of
iu rightful creditors. Take for instance
the case of a clerk who has receiyed war-
rants for the last twelve months and not
beins inclined to throw away the price of
his honest labor for sixty or seventy cents
on tho' dollar recollect that he has bor-
rowed money at exorbitant rates of interest
hoping in the end to receive his money and
save at least a part of the depreciation upon
warrants. . Then let us ask was it not the
duty and ia it not more particularly so now
since we desire to prove to the world Jthe
justice of our cause that money should be
placed in the treasury to meet these obliga-
tions? Is this the most perfect measure
or justice or. is it more proper to
say to the employee that he shall not
be paid as proposed but that while money
is commanding two three or lour per cent
a mouth in the market he shall put his
warrants into bonds payable in ten or more
years' time .with interest in the mean time
at only eight per cent.. Such a proposi
tion might suit the capitalists of Wall
street seeking investment for their surplus
funds but not the poor laborer ' for this
State. And if the State is to pay a per
cent.' upon the outstanding indebtedness
why in . the name of justice could : it
not borrbw from these very capitalist
and thus pay tho debts owed to those who
nre. suffering in consequence of non-pay
tiieiit. Has the State a right even to force
its creditors to ncccpt payment in a differ
cut shape from that promised? And out
Bide .of a few capitalists who that hold
State warrants could afford with safety to
themselves to submit to a settlement in
bonds? "We repeat it it would bo a great
injustice and more especially since such a
bill would be a respecter of persons. It
would at once create a difference in the
value of warrants issued before and after
the date named. For instance take a war
rant dated the fourteenth and another the
sixteenth of January under the existence
of abondingbilL and offer each of them for
sale in the market what dealer- would put
money in the first for which he would be
compelled to wait ten years or more and
receive eight per cent per annum when
he .could just as readily by loaning
on the - best of security . make twenty
nr thirtV. Tho warrant ' dated on the
sixteenth would have a ready market value
and the one dated the .fourtcenlh. would
eally have a nominal one. The result then
would bo that tho original holder would
be forced to suffer a heavy loss when it was
really the ctaty of the State to redeem its
solemn pledge at once in money. In the
name of justico we would say let the rich
and great Stato of Texas with" its un
bounded resources borrow money and pay
oH' its warrants and not forco its em
ployees to suffer simply because they have
done work for it on a credit. The latter course
is just and if this is not adopted let
every ono who holds warrants keep them at
his own peril and trust to chanco for relief.
The State after its employees have suffered
should .not drive them involuntarily into a
stato of bankruptcy. Let it remain option-
ary with individuals whether they will bond
but do not force raany into such a course to
their utter ruin.
TOE PO URTEENT II LEGISLATfTR E
- The rrescnt Legislature of Texas is re
garded and we think very justly as the
best that has ever been assembled since the
orrmnization of the State government. In
o - - - w
intelligence earnest of purpose industry
and patriotism it stands almost unequalled.
But in addition to these exalted recorn
mendations to popular favor is its pure
moral tone. ';
; It is a remarkable fact worthy of com-
mendatiod that all that character of reck
lessness and dissipation which usually char.
acteri7.es ' legislative ' bodies and 1 which
spreads its baneful influence upon society at
a State .capital Cads a rebuke in the de-
meanor of the chosen representatives ' of
tho. 'people.' Wo arc proud of it. Every
Senator and Representative should feel it;
and we axo rejoiced that they recognize it.
Every man connected with the State gov-
ernment seems to feel that he represents a
constituency to which he desires to carry
buck aa honorable record lie looks Jut
iumself alone aa an individual and every
member regarding it in the sa.no light a
rrfe:t result is attained.
' Thj members of the Legislature meet in
the morning and Becm devoted to duty and
thebusiness set lefore them. Committees are
prompt in their meetings and unremitting
ia their duties. Certainly a more unselfish
Had devoted body of men never met to-
gether and wo sincerely trust that their la-
bors will be 'as fruitful of good results as
they intend. . .' . .
' That each men may differ wo may rea-
sonably expect and perhaps on s?tvc ques-
tions but that there will bc any difference
which will lead to alliance or discord we do
not. anticipate. There U work for all hon-
cst patriotic -earnest mcn for tho ensuing
four years and wc ' sincerely hope all who
are connected with public affairs will bear
in mind that there is but one security for
good government- and that ia ia dispassion-
ate counsels and unity of purpose.
Ia our present condition it is like laying
down tho principles of a new government.

the path pointed out by honor patriot-;
ism aad duty. No poIicyw men; no teai-
poriiing; no fruitless ignoble scheme of
expediency. No disgraceful lobbying none
of the vile means employed by bribe" to de
bauch legislators or betray ofHc-ril-?. All
these are banished aDd we arc u-.v-kcUing
to a new life. Standing as a sentiac4 u the
watch tower it gives us pleasure to bear
testimony to the honorable character and
bearing of the people's representatives. Vf e
congratulate them. Were it other ie we
should not be slow to condemn their con-
duct. ' '
It is very well for the Galveston '.Km
Houston 3fercury and kindred journals to
talk about what they term the independence
of the press and to inveigh in vehement terms
anin.n jiarty spirit and to deprecate tne
course of what are called partisan journals
but they ought not and surely the iatclli-
geat men of the country will nut tease to
remeniler the past and the present condi
tion of public affair3.' .
If it were a mere" question .bet t en t.iq
"ins and outs' of office and officeholders
then the course of these journals would be
proper; there would be a lofty spirit of pa
triotism exhibited in their apparent self-
abnegation. : .
In all sincerity and candor Lave these
cotemporaries forgotten the history of the
country for the last eight years and partic
ularly for the past four ! . If thoj haye tho.
citizens of Texas they may. -rest assured;
hav not and will never cease to remember
those ill-fated years as the.' darkest and
gloomiest in our . political history. ; ; And
now when this' night of gloom is passing
away and the people are exultant at the
re-assertion of the principles of public lib-
erty ingrained even in the minds of ttho
young are they to be rebuked and the
press that speaks for them to be censured
when they give expression to their joy t
Are we to cease to. remember that we had a
Governor distinguished fori his : talents
fidelity to principle and patriotism " set
aside by arbitrary power and super
seded by a man who wa3 rejected by
tho people! We refer to. i Governor
Throckmorton. Now when these dis-
tinguished gentlemen are no longer aspi-
rants for position- and when our motives
cannot be misinterpreted we can-speak. of
them as they deserve. Are-we to forget
that melancholy period when the officers of
a great and noble commonwealth were re-
moved and a military despotism occupied
tho honored places of the civil government?
These papers know and the citizens of this'
State have a painfully appreciative remem-
brance of the tyranny exercised oyer this.
oeoDle.. when 6tockades were created- and
our ocst ana m jsi. woriuy uiucus
It was the "man on . horseback"
a revival of the days of tho "iron
mask." Do not the" editors of these
journals know that it is"a . princi-
ple stamped upon tho American mind that
tho first duty of a citizen is an abhorrence 01
that military control which asserts its power.
over civil government? JIr..Webster ia his I
dictionary in denning the word 'cpocn.
in order to enforco a sentiment upon the
mind of the reader quotes the memorable
words of Jlr. Madison: "The fifteenth j
century was the unhappy epoch of military
establishments in time ot peace." ynat
has been tho course since then during the
Davis administration which these journals
have at times lauded? . .- t
