WHO IS RESPONSIBLE f
For eight long weeks the pres.-
dent has lain npon his bed overcome
with affliction and tbe members
of a sorrowing household and an
anxious people have watched with
interest first his ascending and then
his descending physical condition-
During these eight long weeks Dr.
Bliss and his corps have contended
that the president's wound was not
in the way of his recovery and they
have doctored and pbysiced the pa-
At A A .A . A a a
nuui until at last ne ieu iroin a ro
bust man's lofty estate to worse
than the condition of a new born
babe. Day after day the statement
has been made that Guiteau's ball is
inscysted; that the wound was heal
ing; that it had healed to the very
surface ; that the patient was doing
nicely and that he was recovering
rapidly. In spite of all these re
peated statements the president has
steadily lost flesh and strength and
the man of magnificent physique
has become a shadow of his former
self. Climax after climax In his case
have marked the descending scale of
tho president's health and when tbe
last dread. Saturday came the sink-
ing condition of Mr. Garfield was
wired over the civilized world and
it was told that the president was
dying. Dr. Bliss said he was dying
and then the Statesman said so too
aud so did every paper in the land
that takes the press dispatches.
The dying president was done
up and laid away over
Sunday and anticipating the
consequences before Tuesday morn
ing we gave assent to the induc-
tion of Mr. Arthur luto office and
pictured the changes that come with
chnnging administrations. Dr. Bliss
was the cause of it all. His
nice little bulletin said Garfield
would die aud the Statesman
has been for eight weeks telling
what Dr. Bliss thinks of the presi-
dent's condition. Dr. Bliss said he
would die and he sent it out in his
bulletin; and thereupon it may be
presumed he took up his saddle-
bags aud went away from the White
House to make out his bill. No
Moouer had he given up the case aud
abandoned tho president to the
Arthur succession than the sick
tnau begau to grow better and now
he is iu a fair way to get well. He
simply had too much Bliss aud
when the dapper little medi-
cine man took his departure
from the White House to
count his gains the wounded man
rallied under relief and the country
is going to be saved any disgraceful
dispute as to whether the vice presu
dent is a constitutional or an uncon-
stitutional being. We are glad of It
for more than ono reason; glad be-
causo an unoffending man is not
to meet death at the hand of an
assassin; glad because the assassi-
nation of presidents is a great crimo ;
glad because it makes many hearts
happy; aud particularly are we
glad because we do hope this man
Bliss has been dethroned in his opin
ions and practices and because it is
presumed he will now not continue
to keep up this impertiuent stuff in
the press reports. We have had
enough of Bliss and If he will just
give the press reporter a rest and
allowed the rrsidint t wt I
retrace his steps towards a normal
condition we will be satisfied.
Judge Jerrb Black would dis-
connect his name from that of Presi
dent Buchanan. He was Mr. Buch
anan's attorney-general and he is
engaged in an attempt to prove
himself "loyal" at all times to the
government no one having proven
that Mr. Buchanan was disloyal.
But Judge Black is distressingly
anxious about the matter and
while he admits he denied the
power of the government to wage
aggressive war that he maintained
the right to enforce the laws and
defend the Union against every as-
sault. Just how to enforce the laws
in the case of tho seceding states
without waging offensive war
against them was a problem that a
good many federal generals under-
took to solve but failed. Whether
Judge Black would have succeeded
in solving that knotty problem of
course will never be known as he
did not have an apportunity to
work it out According to his own
story he urged the reinforcement of
Major Anderson and insisted upon
holding every fort against the rebels ;
that he drove out the rebel members
of the cabinet and compelled Buch
anan to repel the South Carolina
commissioners and hand over the
government intact to Lincoln's ad-
ministration. And now the ques-
tion arises what does Judge Black
want of his countrvmen.
South Carolina has an agricul
tural bureau which upon complete
investigation unqualifiedly con
demns the tenant system of working
lands in that state and it is believed
the objections will apply to the entire
southern agricultural country. The
tenant system is ruining some of the
finest lands in the state a late report
says and destroying a large amount
of stock. It is decreasing not onlv
the labor supply but the production
of the state since if a hand once
begins renting land he never will
give up this system and work for
nother person. The trouble with
the tenant system the bureau thinks
is that the negro has never enough
capital to carry it on. At the end of
tho year after he has paid his debts
there is not enough money left to
feed his mule and the animal is half
starved or fed on spoiled western
corn; is able to dr. less work and
what with this and thriftless farm-
ing the crop is a failure. Thus the
land is impoverished and the labor
supply cut short without a single
advantage to show for this system

HOW TO VOTE ON THE 8IXTH.
The sixth of September will soon
be here when the people of Texas
will be called upon to vote on sev
eral most Important propositions
Two amendments to the constito
tion are proposed one affecting the
judiciary and the other the legisla
tive system. The judiciary article
and acts now in force divide the su
preme court into several bodies
employing in all nine judges. The
amendment proposed provides fo
one chief justice and six associate
justices to constitute the supreme
court which shall have jurisdiction
in all civil and criminal appeals. The
jurisdiction of district courts would
also be enlarged by the adoption of
this amendment while the powers of
the lower courts would as they
should be curtailed. Not only in
the interest of economy but that the
work of the supreme court may bo
more prompt and therefore more
satisfactory the judiciary amend
ment should receive the favorable
support of voters.
The other constitutional amend-
ment submitted provides for
a change in the legislative
system. Legislators now receive
during regular sessions $5 per diem
for .sixty days and $2 thereafter.
The amendment proposes that legis
latures may sit without such limita
tion for one hundred days. In the
interest of defeating hasty legisla
tion this amendment ehonld also
xne location ot trie state uni
versity is the third . impor
tant question presented to the
people for their decision. It is
needless to say tho Statesman's
choice is Austin and an undivided
university and it urges in the in
terest of a grand institution and of
the unity and grandeur of our be
loved Texas that ballots be cast
against division and for Austiu.
laOVERNOR UENDRICK'S OpiniOU
is that in case ot the inability of
the president to perform the tunc
tions of his office the vice president
has authority to discharge the
powers aud duties of the office ; that
he does not become president there
by and therefore there is no ques-
tion about how to divest him of that
property when the inability has
ceased. If the plain reading of the
constitution be received there can
be no dispute about this. And the
effect is the same in case of death of
the president as in case of iuability
in either case the vico president dis
charges the powers and duties of
the office but does not become
president. As the constitutional
provision is the same in both cases.
they who admit that in case of ina-
bility the vice president discharges
the powers and duties of the office
but does not become president have
to recognize also that in case of
death he only discharges the powers
and duties and does not become

A spiritual seance was lately
held to Inquire into the results in the
case or President Garfield. The
spirits of Lincoln Seward Staunton
Zach. Chandler Wilson and others
were present and conversed freely
through the medium. They all were
anxious about Jhe president but all
asserted he would certainly recover.
As to the probable presidential suc
cessor they stated that Arthur
could not be inaugurated since
there was no doubt he was of Cana-
dian birth. None of the spirits
would talk about Bliss. It is under-
stood he stands badly over there
having sent too many over the river
before they had time to arrange
matters properly on this side.

It days :
Nearly all the cities of Texas are
candidates for the site of a new
state university. The campaign is a
very exciting ono. The people are
to rote in October upou the ques
tion aud in the meantime election
eeriug devices somewhat of the
same quality as would be used In an
absorbing presidential race are in
full blast. Every city is denounced
as a most infamous place by ail the
others and even the characters of the
residents are assailed. Under the
circumstances it would be an excel
lent idea for Texas to build a nui
versity in every city as all of them
seem to need additional educatioual
facilities; and it would also be
good thing to throw in a penitentiary
ai several places.
It is said that of the six medical
gentlemen who are iu attendance ou

cian. To this circumstance and to
this alone can bo attributed the in
definite character of the bulletins
and the inaccurate reports. It

It is stated the president's physi

Some years ago the courts of

verbally and by means of hair-dye
taise teetn and the judicious use ot
more or less cotton batting had
made her figure to become a peram
bulating showy falsehood and that
he had been grossly deceived
into matrimonv thereby. This
was a bold invasion of long-established
female rights. Now the Brit
ish courts have taken up the matter
and Miss Mabel Wilberforce. the
fraud who was recently summarily
sat down upon in her action against
old man Philip is to be prosecuted
for forgery in swearing: that she was
born in San Francisco in 1854 and
was consequently twenty-seven years
old ''whereas she was considerably
older having given birth to a child
in 1860 which is unreasonable to
suppose she died at the are of six
years" If this thing goes on there

of uncertain age will become whol

Tyler and Mr. Douglas
Editor Statesman :
Mr. James P. Douglas thinks in
au article in Sunday's News that in
the present condition of the univer-
sity fund the university should bo
located at Ty ler because tho good
people of that enterprising place of-
fer to give the state a school-house.
The university is not offered at pub-
lic auction arid the matter of its lo-
cation is of greater concern than a
few dollars and cents. If properly
located the uuiversity will prosper;
if put at the wron' place it will
drag out a miserable sort of exist-
ence accomplishing little or noth-
ing. Neither a $15000 school house
nor a $200000 university building
will make the uuiversity. It must
be patronized aud sustained by the
people and young men desiring to
be fitted for the pursuits and pro-
fessions of life will consider the ad-
vantages offered. If wholly inferior
to places outside of the 6tate they
will not stay at home. Do the best
we can and let the people of every
section of the state unite in build-
ing up the university and still it
will for years fall below what
young gentlemen can for the same
money find elsewhere. It be-
hooves us. therefore to afford at
tho outset every advantage we cau.
Among some of the advantages pre-
sented by Austin are the following:
1. In the capitol buildings and su-
preme court room are libraries worth
thousands of dollars. The value of
the state library is not generally ap-
Ercciated. It contains not hundreds
ut thousands of rare and usclul
books that cau uot be found else-
where in the state and which the
professors and student tf the col-
lege would want to consult.
2. In the capitol will be found a
very large collection of miueral etc.
the accumulations of years.
3. In the capitol and department
buildings are archives pertaiuiug to
the history and organization of the
government from the earliest down
to the present time. Access to these
by the student aud young niau who
expected to make Texas his home
would be desired.
4. Among advantages aud con-
veniences without which no such
institution as it is proposed
to make the university of Texas
could be properly and successfully
conducted arc water aud gas to
say nothing of the lower rate of in-
surance safety to property and life
iu case oi lire cau ouiy be secured
by au abundant supply of water.
Besides a large quantity of water is
wanted for bathing purposes and to
irrigate and bcautily the grounds
The water works at Austiu which
have beeu in successful operation
ior several years nave already
large pipe extending to uuiversity
nui. i ne gas worts arc also in sue
cessiui operation and their pipes
rcacn withiu oue block ot uuiver
sity hill thus obviating the danger
and risk ot explosive lamps. The
state will hardly undertake the very
expensive experiment ot establish
mg water and gas works tor the
benefit of one institutiou. Now
venture the assertion that if the
whole available university fund was
expended it would not buy such a
library as is now in tne capitol build
ing. The collection of minerals
must have cost over $50000. Water
and gas are at hand at reasonable
rates. Building material of the best
quality and in great abundance
is within sight aud cau be
used at this time iu courier
tion with the opening of quarries
and the construction of machinery
etc. ior building the new capitol
cheaper than at any other time. As
agalust all these advantages will
the intelligent voter weigh the cost
of a single school house even though
a& much as $loooo. ubsckibek.

tainiy worthy of the name it has as-
sumed when it iays: "We have
been greatly in doubt as to the most

The WorkingmarCs Advocate at
Sulphur Bluff whose practical
judgment is displayed on all impor
tant questions says : " In this issue
we announce Austin as a candidate
for the locatiou of the state univer
sity. 1 he reasons set forth by the
citizens of Austin why the univer

Wooldridge of the Austiu commit-
tee writes to a gentleman of this city
that the Austiu committee has kept
perfect faith with Houston and has
sent out over a million tickets for

Galveston for the medical branch
Mr. Wooulndge says that a uum

The Cucro Bulletin wants the
voters of the entire state to consider
the university case well before they
vote on the proposition. It sums up
us opinion in me matter as follows
" 1 here are several candidates anion
the towns and cities of Texas ; but
wnen it is taken in serious consider
ation we believe every sensible man
entitled to a vote will decide on
Austiu the capital of the great em
pire state as the rightful spot not
only because it is the choseu capital
but that all public buildiugs of like
character should be erected there

and sectioual interests conflict grow
to such a magnitude as to disturb
the domestic polity Of Texas and
create sectional hatred that would
culminate disastrously to the glory
of Texas as a whole. The time may
come when a united empire state
like thisofours would require all its
streugth to maintain equilibrium as

This is not an insult to Austin. That
place is a city and what is said in
regard to it is applicable to all other
cities. They are not the places for
the location of a state educational
institution. The cry of 'keuo' has
never been heard in Tyler and fight

In reply to this the Denton Mon

The Mexia Ledger taking a deep
interest in the establishment of a
most effective state university ap-
peals to voters not to vote for sepa-
ration. It says : "It certainly cannot
be the proper policy- to emasculate
the university Texas is about to es
tablish by creating two depart-
ments ; the one for the furtherance
of medical knowledge and the other
tor the advancement ot the kinds of
knowledge which go to constilue a
literarv education. In behalf of
such divisions its advocates
have nothing to urge beyond
tne allegation that it would en
able the student to acquire a thor
ough knowledge of clinics after
completing his university course of
study it is not claimed that such
separation would do anything to en-
hance the true interest of the uni
versity ; nor that the school need be
deprived of a flue clinical depart-
ment without separation and hence
the only question to be well-weigh
ed is whether the difference in value
of a clinical department at Galves
ton or Houston will equal the value
to be derived from an undivided
school. No one who is at all familiar
with the management necessary to
secure a 8iricuy nrst-ciass univer
sity but will contend that it is of
the very last importance such a
school Bhould be under immediate
supervision of one chief officer. This

ii tne medical department be sepa
rated from the literary. We con-
tend that as no epidemics ever
ravage Austin a smdent would
while passing through bis course to
graduation get more clinics and at
much less cost than at either of the
places mentioned as a candidate for
the medical department. Let us
have undivided schools."
