more confuted coniiition tlian they
were twenty years ago ie.-uliing from
constant partial amendments. Kich
legislature adds nbi)U'. 300 pages of
legal litersture to the incongruous pile
aocumulated by its predecessors. It is
true that no Fjstem of aw either civil
or criminal cm be perfected in a day
but must approximate that condition
by s-low and tedious stages of progres-
sion and that as new social relations
and commercial interests are developed
alterations in existing statutes become
necessary. Uut as the Legislature
would be guilty of emission should
it fail to provide fcuitsb'.e regu-
lations for these new interests
and relations when their prominence
n'iircs it so it is guilty of the high-
est folly when by hasty and ill-advised
amend tut ntr provisos and uncertain

ty and weakcus or destroys the con-
struction which hud been given it by
the courts of last resort. In nsserting
that the various legislatures from the
days of the Republic down even to the
present era have mystified the stat-
ute we but repeat a charge which
was preferred against the IJntish Par-
liament by some of Kagland's most
distinguished jurists. As then even so
cow it is ttue that the world is legis-
lated too much. It is time that all
civilized people should pause and cast
about them for a remedy. Civis.

I hero is a form of consumption
which was better indicated by the old
lastnoncii name of decline." It la
the dreaded scourge of some parts of
the S-iuthcrn States claiming more
victims every year than are swept
away by the most terrible visitations
of the yellow fever. The malady
nr.-ises from the.inability of the patient's
system to tike up and assimilate the
nourishipg ingredients of the food that
is eaten. S.ime years ago the
medical profession with remarka-
ble unanimity agreed that Cod
liver eul contained the most concen
trated and easily absorbed elements of
nutrition. If the nauseous taste and
smell ot the oil could be avoided it
would unquestionably be the most
sovereign remedy that ever shed a
healing blessing on tho human race.
And these repulsive properties are suc-
cessfully removed by the union of pure
cod liver oil with the hypopl o phites
of lime and soda in Scott's Emusion.
The combination is a moat elegant one
pleasant as sweet milk ia flavor con-
genial to the stomach and acting
diicctly as a powerful yet gentle tonic
of the brain aud nervous system.

Immediately after the reading of the

called up for action the resolution pre
sented by him yesterday directing the
committee on the investigation of elec
tion frauds to iL-iuire into the cipher
dispatches una appropriating $10000
to defray the expenses of such inquiry.
Mr. rotter opened oiscusston on the
resolution saying th it he offered it be
cause he wa3 instructed to do so. He
spoke feelinglj concerning the imputa-
tions which had been attributed to him
and said he desired to prevent the in-
vestigation of cipher telegrams.
Butler of Massachusetts opposed
the resolution on the ground that Con-
gress has no jurisdiction over the pri-
vate correspondence of anjbidy and
should not take part m the rlandcr of
any public mau to satisfy the curiosity
cf anyone in the House or out of it.
Hale of Maine supported the reso-
lution. Now that the machinery had
been started and set in motion let it
roll on and make an investigation into
both sides of the question.
Hewitt supported the resolution. He
called attention of Butler to the fact
that there were occasions in life when
there was something higher than a
judge or a member of Congress It
was when a sense of manhood struck
into the human heait. He stood here
in that spirit of manhood to invite the

Hewitt concluded by saying: "Let
then Mr. Tilden have an opportunity
to confront his accusers his traducers
his mahgeers before a competent trtr
bunal. Let tho man who of right
should occupy the executive chair
go on tne witness stand if need

political and social problems that will
constantly demand solution an en-

cult and alarming cannot be ignored.
It must be fairly and fearlessly met.
Equivocation or hesitancy will be crim-
inal. Delay will be dangerous in the
extreme. It will be too late to begin
when our mean11 save by taxation
are exhausted when the time fo'
action has passed and the enemy
is at our very doors. Oppor-
tunities wasted rarely return. Yes-
terday is forever gone; to-morrow
may never come; to-day is with us and
is ours to use and to enjoy. Upon
this generation devolves the necessity
of maturing and carrying into practical
opeiation the plan so wisely devised by
the founders of the republic for suu-
p'ying the intellectual wants of the
people. Moral and mental improve
ment snouid move apace with material
prosperity ir we would attain that
high degree of civilization and refine
men in the absence of which free in
stitutions are always in great and im
mediate peril. It is difficult to con
ceive a single enterprise known to
human industry or a single undertak
ing that has been or may be attempted
by human hands that cannot be better
and more easily accomplished when
the head has been trained to think to
inquire and to n fleet. The advantages
of popular education cannot be over
estimated and if we would rise to the
I heicht of the occasion and nrove our.
I f .1 I . .
i selves wonny tne iieritace we enioy
we must make amnle tirenarntion fnr
tne great and serious event8 whose
daik shadows are already lenirthenine
themselves before us. If we would
diminish the evils that cluster so thick
ly around universal suffrage; if we
would empty our jails and deplete our
penitentiaries; if we would have the
rich and abundant productions of na-
ture utilized and developed to their
utmost capacity we should not hesi
tate for a moment to do all that in us
lies for the diffusion of knowledge
amongst those who are to take our
places when we shall have been gather
ed unto our fathers. Increased taxa
tion will not be necessary. An im
mense domain is yet undisposed of and
an industrious and enterprising popu-
lation is hurrying hitherward in great
numbers and if the public school lands
be properly handled they will socn be
taken up at their full Value and there
will flow into the treasury funds amply
sufficient to educate to a moderate ex-
tent every son and daughter of Texas.
Ihere is another policy conceived
and put in execution by the earlier
statesmen of Texas whose memories
are revered by a grateful posterity
the furnisbmcnt of safe speedy econ-
omical and easy facilities for trazel
and transportation. It is a policy
made essential by the requirements of
this day and generation. Commercial
advantages are indeed of incalculable
value and no people can be prosper-
ous without them. With the develop-
ment of agricultural pursuits and with
the perfectiou of other industries the
aids and appliances of commeice must
undergo a corresponding if not great
er advancement or energy thrift and
economy will be but scantily rewarded.
and in the mids. of plenty we wul be
struggling beneath the wtight of pov
erty. That this policy is liable
to greit abuse there cannnot be a
doubt and Texas as other States has
suffered and is now suffering the ua
fortunate results of (flirts repeatedly
and successfully made under the guise
of great public benefit yet neverthe
less to promote individual gain at the
expense of the general welfare. But
such instances of misapplication of
power and means should not produce
a Ciiange of policy in this respect
Rather should it animate those charged
with executive and legislative func
tions to be more watchful of the pub
lie interests and all future legislation
upon this subject should be so direct
ed as to be fruitful of the greatest good
to the largest number
I would not be understood as at all
favoring the donation of money or the
loan ot credit by the State to srch en
terpnses. To such a policy I am un
alterably opposed. But Texas cannot
afford to have her immense resources
undeveloped or her many and diversi
fied productions unconsumed or ex
changed at ruinous rates for the want
of those agencies that trade and com
merce employ and require. Millions and
millions of the race on this and the
other hemisphere - are stretching out
their eager and starving hands for sus
tenance and employment lie it our
mission to supply their wants and at
tne same time to enhance vastly our
own moral intellectual and material
cap.bilities. We must keep ourselves
fully abreast with the age. The world
is a busy a struggling and anxious
throng and this people should lead the
van in all tin great movements of mod
ern times. This right and this duty.

well by virtue of a great and glorious
ancestry as by the immeasurable su
periority of our climate our soil and

Allusion to another subject par

each succeeding - legislature should
not be called npon to make a deficien
cy appropriation. It will not be ex
aggeration to say that such policy
would to some extent be a new de
paxture in Texas politics. The history
of legislation from the admission of
Texas into the Union down to this dav.
discloses the fact that the taxation im
posed has but seldom been sufficient to
meet the expenditures during the time
for which they were estimated. Saund
policy requires a change in this re
spect especially since every interest is
laboring beneath a weight of indebted-
Bess national. State municipal and in
dividual that is indeed appalling and
threatens the utter ruin of almost ev-
ery industry of the country. It is con-
fidently believed that your honorable
bodies entertain a fall and just appre-
ciation of the gravity of this question
and that the incoming adminiatration

alike; when each section shall haye be-
come directly coni.ee ted with the outer
world through the instrumentalities
of a prosperous commerce; when the
necessity for a burdensome taxatian
shall no longer exist and it shall
be a rule to fixed as to
be without an exception that

shall not exceed the revenues at esti-
mated by law; then and not till then
will this people be fully prepared to

Adlrea of ex-Governor Hubbard.
Fellow-citizen of Texas and Gentlemen of the
senate and Home or Kepreeuuta ti ve :
You have assembled in this Capitol
to-day to witness the peaceful trauei-
tion from one to another administra-
tion of the government of your State.
xou behold the cares and responsi
bilities of State transferred from those
who for more than two years have
borne the burden to other trusted ser-
vants chosen by the people. Such a
change in imperial aad kingly States
would be signalized by revolution and
bloodshed. Here under the seis 0' a
written constitution protecting life
and liberty by the fearless and un-
bought ballot of freemen our rulers of
to-day become the private citiz.ns of
to-morrow and old public policies
even are forgotten or abandoned or
new measures inaugurated without
producing a jar or discord in the har
mony of the government.
r congratulate ycu fellow-citizen3
of Texas that you have lived to wit-
ness this auspicious day and to have
welcomed this morning's sun rise upon
a happy commonwealth of nearly two
millions of people whose liberties are
guarded by stable laws administered
by incorruptible judges and protected
by the legislative power to whose
majesty we bow aa vitalized by the
voice of the people. May God who
protected our fathers when they laid
deep and firm the foundations of tne
Republic and the subsequent State in
wisdom and in strength continue to
vouchsafe the heritage which has
been transmitted from sires to sons
through the geperations which have
gone before us. May sectional discord
never more rend our councils State or
national or ambition seek to pollute
tne altars w hereon patriots and states
men have placed their offerings of love
and of life. The past is secure; our
history is full of the romance and chiv
alry of knighthood and illustrated in
civic councels and on battle fields as
well the noblest sacrifices of human
life and the loftiest exhibitions of hu-
man intellect and of human courage
Let us preserve the trust as we would
the virtue of woman with the risk ol
life itself in the breach.
Our steps are no longer feeble; our
voice is the voice of a sturdy manhood.
Long before your heads have grown
gray or your old statesmen have passed
away Texas will stand in the national
balls side by side of the oldest and the
greatest of the American States; no
longer a mendicant begging for favor
but demanding her right? because tbey
are 1.1st and because also she will
then have the power to command rc
During the years in which 1 have
held the reins of power I baye to
thank out of a full heart my able as
sociates in the Toyernment on whose
strong arms I have always relied and
the great body of the people who have
evinced their confidence always in my
devotion to the honor and interests of
T.xas. I go hence without regrets.
leaving the helm in old and trusty
nands tried alike in peace and peril
with' the consciousness that as I re
ceived the great trust so it passes to
my honored successor untarnished by

down the toils and cares of an ardnous
public seryice invoking for the repre
sentatives of the people and my suc
cessor a wise and happy administration
or the State government.
