'1 he Iron- of Events.
There was an anxious expression up
on the gubernatorial face. A nervous
tension was quite observable m all
thatithe executive body did in all that
executive tongue uttered there was at
first doabt and indecision but gradu-
ally this air of haste and general up-
settledcess passed off and confidence
seemed restored and high emprise
shined all over the statesman's face.
The hurrying crowd of lackeys cou-
riers and secretaries disappeared and
the wonted staid quietude proper
to the executive mansion of a great
state and a great man was restored.
The statesman had solved the diffi-
culty order and peace were the re
sulting attendants upon the fruition
of the great idea which had defini
tely shaped itself in the great man s
tired brain. But we are too fast. "We
have forgotton that perhaps the pub
lie up to this timeremains uninform
ed as to what we are to teach in the
political lesson of this morning. A
waiting world shall remain no longer
in doubt. It shall anxiously and tear
fully learn that once upon a time
seven or eight millions of negroes
over at Gauge Gause in the state of
Texas rejoicing in the completion of
a rich harvest and full of gratitude
and whisky (it is a way they have of
showing gratitude) went upon a little
jamboree. They walked a little un
steadily on their legs and this in
duced an official of the railway
to regard them as bloody treason con
coctors and straightway his plaint
round its way by shortest wire
route to the executive ears. This
was the cause of the hurrying Iggions
about the head of the government.
This it was that had perturbed the
usually serene self-possession of the
man of events. "While the evil tidings
were slowly penetrating the brain
and while the fullness and richness of
the remedy was percolating the mind
the anxious expression and hurried
movements were kept up. But like
a bolt from heaven from a clear and
cloudless sky came the grand sug
gestion '-There is the military arm
of the federal power it will sustain
me. I can gracefully fall into it and
dud rest and protection both. 1 11 e en
haste and invoke it." '.The boys in
blue the blessed boys and
men in blue will do the work if only
they can be had ere the black tide of
revolution has urged to the uttermost
bounds of my empire." This great
Jacksonian governor of ours whose
glorious services so richly entitled
him to re-election called and long ere
the commander of the military could
possibly mobilize his forces the "filled
up" Africans sobered by the dreadful
tidings of preparation on the part of

tude of the great services he had ren
dered the people "Eureka!" "hurrah!"
"by jingo" broke from his wreathed
lips and joy reigned once more a regal
queen in "Warsaw. Now if anything
entitles the govern o . i e to the
honor of re-election it 13 this grand
Gauze campaign. See how perlect
the whole thing is in even to the most
minute particular. The negro can al
ways be depended upon toranemeute
a rising or a coon hunt. It is an
idiosyncrasy or Sambo and none
know the fact better than the states
man who bandies the helm in Tex
as. There were vast herds of them
perhaps a dozen men not in
buckram perhaps as rotund old Sir
John had it but In liquor. They
were befuddled. In plain terms
drunk and John Ireland subdued
them by a single mighty flash of
genius. He rushed to the . front and
shook in their blanched facts the sa-
cred name of Uncle Sam. Of course
no negro cound emeute worth a cent
after he knew that Uncle Samuel had
set his face sternly against that sort
of thing and that in the good work
he was backed by the majestic power
of an earnest and fully aroused exec
utive or the state or Texas to an
awful perdition with democratic theo
ries with home rule wih non-interfer
ence of the fecleral power with the
domestic affairs of the states and with
the doctrine which declares that the
civil arm must be exhausted ere the
military be evoked. You see the man
who promulgated that comfortable
political doctrine was a theorist only.
He did not at the head of a pitiful
two and a half millions of Caucasians
stand in front of a dozen loud smell
ing whisky bef umed Africans and so
he did not know what he was think
ing of. According to Ireland Jeffer
son does well enough except when the
Gauze negroes are in open rebellion
and rising fifteen or sixteen strong.
Now all levity aside but is this the
man for either grave or trivial enier
gencles? Did this Gauze emeute devel
op the supreme fitness of Mr. Ireland
to.be governor another term even
with such chances thrown in the way
that affair brought to him. Can
the democracy of Texas can the
state afford to take another lease on
this man after he has developed
massive unfitness such as this? Can
we not do better? Is the range of
desirable gubernatorial timber so cir
cumscribed as that we must throw
the state into the arms of such
weakling as this and that too when
we have so many abler men than he
who are restrained from offering be
cause they know that Ireland has so
much the start of. them
The opposition to the re-nomination
of Governor Ireland is growing very'
rapidly now in all parts of the state
Many men who have heretofore stood
by his excellency are . falling rapidly
away from him. As his acts and pub
lic career are held up In the light of
liberal and candid criticism the
utter weakness of the man and fault-
lnessof his policy become apparent.
This is not a circumstance to gather
the people about him In ever increas-
ing strength. The hurrah stage of his
candidacy has passed and people are
now asking upon what grounds this
re-nomination is asked. The reply has
not been satisfactory. It is not enough
to say that custom prescribes that be-
cause a man has had one term there-
fore he must have two without any
reference whatever to the character of
the administration he has given the
people. The people know nothing of
the finesse of . such rules. They
do not understand the subtleness of
the political situation which demands I
that they endorse a man or his admin-!
istration when they bitterly oppose
both or when they are conscious that
neither are in accord with themselves.
The situation is just this: Texas is
largely nay overwhelmingly demo
cratic and the press is democratic.
"While knowing and feeling that the
governor's course and policy has been
faulty to a very vast extent yet their
fidelity to the party and to him as its
official head has restrained them from
discussing these faults. In this way
the people are largely uninformed as
to their nature range extent and
probable effects. His very faults
those even of the most glaring and
inconsistant character nave been
uieLamorxmoseu anu made to appear
as virtues by the thick and thin or
gaus. ine papers occupying a more
independent position have not closen
to mane the hght to point out these
taults and mistaken except in the
case of one or two mainly the Gu-
vestonNews and the Statesman.
iney are but two in perhaps
inree nunarea anu the process
of illustrating even the grave faults
of his excellency s course and policy
has been a slow one indeed. But the
determined course the stern attitude
assumed and maintained has at last
born fruit and now at this moment
there is a deep undercurrent of anx
iety of inquiry among the people;
and the signs of a wide-spread revolt
against the of cramming Gov. Ireland
down their threats for the second
term is abroad all over the state.
It has been our observation all
through life that that the people of Tex
as can be led off by the hurrah tactics
and under the idea that a man has
rendered great service in his position
an enthusiastic devotion to his person
is built up very quickly. But this all
falls away from him with equal celer
ity when it begins to dawn on the
public mind that it has been misled or
deceived in any wav regarding the
character or value of these services.
That is the nature of the circumstan-
ces surrounding John Ireland's candi
dacy for the second term and these
are the exact facts attending the
small measure of candid criticism and
examination the two papers named.
have given the matter.
It now appears that this feeling of
dissatisfaction has penetrated to a
wider extent than even the News or
tne (statesman has been aware
ana so advanced and crys-
talized has it become that the forces
in opposition are already perfectly or
ganized in many places and they
have well digested well arranged
plans and are working to these with
the zeal and energy which promises a
satisfactory result. In fact we be
lieve now that the defeat of Gover-
nor Ireland at Houston is not only
possible but very probable. This did
not seem possible two months since
but a mighty change has been
wrought a silent revolution has been
gathering force with the hours that
have been fleeting and the lines are
likely to com8 to his excellency yet
at Houston in no very pleasant ways.
Jo. D. Sayers.
It is high time the people of the
10th congressional district were cast-
ing about in real dead earnest for a
successor to the Hon. John Hancock.
Many names have been suggested and
much enthusiasm has been developed
locally for the several candidates for
the distinction of the nomination.
But as yet none have covered the en
tire field as has the estimable gentle-
man and true democrat whose name
we write at the head of this article.
Few men in active public life has
won to his side more men more
warm and devoted personal friends
than has Jo. Sayers a3 he is affection
ately termed. There is not a blotch
upon his name his record is as clean
as mat or an inrant. ms sturdy in
tegrity his manly devotion to his
principles his uncompromising dem
ocracy his ability and the universal
respect in which he is held all point
to him as the most fitting man yet
named for the nomination; We ques
tion if there would be at all a respect
able show of opposition if Governor
Sayers offered. At any rate we know
of a truth that he would poll every
democratic vo'e in the district and
many republicans would support him
ovei even popular men in their own
xne statesman desires to do no
sort of injustice to any one of the as
pirants but it Is of the opinion that
this would be the very strongest se-
lection that could possibly be made
and it is certainly one which would
call out the enthusiasm of this paper
as no other would.
"Words words mere words is all
that the befogged Express can urge
against the candid and somewhat ex-
haustive examination The States-
man has been recently giving the
official acts and policy of the governor
of Texas. If the Express would con-
vince the people that we are making
a lamb of sacrifice of the governor;
if it would have them believe in real-
ity that Ireland is a great statesman
whose official policy has been health-
ful to Texas; if that policy is suscept-
ible of defense and worthy of lauda-
tion why not go at the task? Why
not point them out to the people so
that the pernicious teachings of The
Statesman be neutralized and his
excellency be justified? The fact is
that the Express barring a few old
fogyisms is rather progressive and
being so vastly unsound on the
tariff question it must needs defend
the head of the party else its charact
er and standing as a democratic paper
would be irretrieveably ruined. It
has no margin to spare in this thing
or perhaps it would write its real sen
timents regarding the inefficiency of
the governor a3 The Statesman does.
We can all wait for the Express. It
doesn't mean to be slow yet its "tired"

other is not. Tail feathers of a soft
character are out about an inch and a
half. But the most striking features
are the complete absence of eyes or
any formation indicative of them
and the wings if they may be so
called. The left one is not jointed
but curved down the side terminating
at the breast bone; the right one is
simply a stump about half an inch
long. The little freak of nature is

Fourteen millions of dollars were
removed yesterday from the United
bank building to the elegant new
structure of the Mutual Life Insur-
ance company in Nassau street. First
came the colored porter of the bank
ing concern carrying a peck basket
in either hand. The porter was the
custodian of $3500000. Next came
the office boy with books and papers
representing $6000000. In the rear
was a man with a puh-wagon on
which were piled 4500000. These
effects belonged to the late firm of
Grant & Ward. The most valuable
portion of the assets of the firm fol
lowed on a truck. This comprised

A Tramp Hero.
From the Cleveland Herald.
When a Lake Shore conductor finds
a tramp stealing a ride on his train
he kicks the turnpike treader gently
and with consideration lor a recent
incident that happened to train 5
west bound near Delta a few nights
ago has taught him that a tramp
may be a hero in disguise. The team
of a drunken farmer had attempted
to walk home on the railroad track
and one horse had fallen through a
bridge near Delta and was stalled
there with a broken leg. No. 5 heav-
ily loaded with passengers was al-
most due. The tramp ran with a
speed born of many watch-dog chases
talk the station agent secured a red
light hurried down the track and
stopped the train just in time to pre-
vent an accident. The tramp not
only got a free ride that night but
was offered a prominent position on
the road. Now the road is lined
with tramps on the lookout for bro-
ken legged horses fast in bridges.

The Boss Snake Story.
Erom the Pittsburg Dispatch.
While Friscilla Martin of Scrogg's
Neck was dusting the book case last
summer a srake brought in a mouth-
ful of daisies and set them in a glass
of water that was standing on the
window sill. It afterward made
friends with the family and did va-
rious cirious things about the place.
It returns every summer and is al-
ways welcome. It goes doVn the
well and fastens the bucket on when
ever off the rope and it hangs from a
Deam Dy 11s tan ana noius tne leatn-
house pounds back and forward with
his knuckles. Last week when thev
were making a lot of ice-cream for a
Sunday school picnic the snake beat
the eggs with its tail and it did it
better and about fifty times fatter
than it could have been done in the
Royalty on Dress Farade.
From the lxmdon World.
I hear that the Princess of Wales
looked most charming at the wedding
of the Prince of Anhalt with the
Pnncets Elizabeth of Hesse. II. R
11. who walked in the procession
with the Duke of Cambridge was at-
tired in pink satin with beautiful lace
and a profusion of pearls and dia
monds. The Empress of Russia who
walked with the Crown Prince of
Germany wore mauve satin with
magnificent jewels; but in the matter
of diamonds the bride outshone every
body as she wore the famous jewels
of the Electors of Hesse and they lit
erally dazzled the eyes. Her dress
was white satin trimmed wi:h myrtle
and orange liowers.
Courtship in Alameda Connty.
From the San Francisco Call.
A story from Hay wards Alameda
county where romances flourish like
tha bay recites that Peter Mussen is
a chicken peddler and that he loves
the widow Wrider who lives on the
mountain roau not rar irom 11 ay-
wards. She is a buxom - dame of 26
j ears and the peddler has courted her
bravely but she would and she would
not until the amorous chicken mer
chant nearly went out of
his mind such as it is. He
did the next best thing and
sought the fair of a San Francisco
clairvoyant. As may be readily be
lieved the prophetess was ready
enough with a solution of the difficul-
ty. Her declaration w;ts that Mrs.
Wnder was desperately in love with
a man with side-whiskers. Mussen's
cheeks areas bare as a pumpkin so
he borrowed a side-whiskered mask
and a shotgun and sk ulked down by
the widow's house one Sunday even
ing recently. He listen d outside the
door and when he l.eard Mrs. Wil-
der tell her childi-n to go to
bed he smashed thi- 1 urce windows
and broke open the d or. Then he
fired a charge of bu shot through
the ceiling and departed leaving his
mask behind him. His intention was
to personate the supposed side-whis
kered object of the widow's affections
in order to disgust her with her hy-
potneucaiiy hairy-raced lover. Me
was arrested and tried berore j ustlce
Austin at Haywards. and on his trial
he swore that Mrs. Wrider had given
him a powder in his tea some time be-
fore he adopted his novel means of
cutting out his hated rival. He was
sent to the county jail for six months.
Mrs. Wrider denies that she ever gave
him any powder.

CHAPTEB NUMBER THREE.
Teagardeu & Bass Questioned
as to the Hardware Busi-

It is an old saying that "Time and
tide wa ts for no man" and while this
is true of both it is equally true of
the printer. For this reason Messrs.
Teagarden & Bass were called upon
and manv useful hints as to the hard
ware business or Austin were gieaneo
from them without their knowledge

The facts learned are substantially as

in Austin has established for himself
the reputation of being one or tne "sol-

business is equaled by but few and
his sterlinar integrity is surpassed
by none. Mr. N. A. Bass has had
about three years experience m mis

posing the firm. What kicd of a team
do they make? One of the very

still have a good supply on hand.
It would not be proper to pass this
head without a passing notice of the
"old reliable" chief assistantMr.

with the firm ever since it was first
organized but built the structure in
which it then made its start and
which it now occupies. Any further
remarks are unnecessary as everybo-iy
knows him to like hira.
Of the stock it may be truthfully
said it is perfect. The first noticablvj
feature is the fine array of stoves.
Among the number may be found the
"Favorite" which has no superior and
can be sold at a great saving to the
purchaser over any other stove made
that can at all compare with it either
in durability or usefulness.
The next is the "Aetna" wood and
coal burner which cannot for all pur-
poses and in all countries be ex c lied.
The next is the "American" which
is not a whit behind either of lhn
others. But this might be truthfully
said of many other makes to be foui d
here as well.
