One way of estimating the value of
a business establishment to a town is
by determining how. much money
said establishment turns loose in the
town. The Statesman averages six
hundred and thirty-five dollars a week
paid out to persons living in Austin
Is there another house in the city that
does as well?
The St. Louis Globe-Democrat says :
The session of congress will begin
with the Republicans having a major
itv of eight members of the house.
Before it ends that majority will be
increased to eighteen or twenty by tlie
unseating of Bourbons who were de-
feated at the polls and the seating
of Republicans who were honestly
Yes I and all this honesty and dis-
. honesty is to be determined by an
eight to seven tribunal.
The Republican congress will have
at its opening a five cornered fight on
its hands in the candidacy of Reed;
McKinley Cannon Burrows and Hen
Herson. for the sneakershin of the
house. ' It is said the administration
fears the popularity of both Reed and
McKinley and will throw the weight
of its influence to some of the lesser
lights. It is not our fight and the
Democrats can afford to lie interested
though quiescent spectators.
The Mormon church rates its fcl
lowing in the United States at one
hundred and sixty-five thousand souls
of whom one hundred and thirty -five
thousands are in Utah. That tern
tory has in all only a population pf
two hundred thousand so there would
appear to be no hurry to admit Utah
into a brotherhood of equal rights
with us. We can bide a time when
the proportion of civilized beings to
Mormons is not bo disproportionate as
His brethren of the Texas press
who know him . well and favorably
will regret the retirement from the
business management of the Gazette
of Captain V. F. Brittingham who
has sold his stock in the paper and re
signed. Captain Brittingham was for
merly business manager of the Gal
veston News years ago and did as
much as any man ever connected with
it to build up that journal to
what it is and he now leaves tho Ga-
zotto one of the most financially solid
papers in the state.
The concise report this morning by
Mr. Beck tho Travis County alliance
organizer should bo a word of good
cheer to the merchants of Austin and
nows of a most pleasant character to
the citizens of Austin and the county
generally. With our farmers out of
debt money rattling in their pockets
and abundance smiling from their
farms and barns there should be good
times in store for them and us. The
remark in tho report "Austin will have
a big farm trade next month" should
be hint enough to our wide-awake
merchants to get ready to serve cus-
tomers. Now is tho time wo should
havo the very best county roads.
It has been reported that through
their agent the King Iron Bridge
company havo positively refused
to havo anything more to do
with the Montopolis ford wreck.
This accentuates the interest-
ing situation. Action on the
part of the county commissioners
must now be imminent. It has
boen stated their line of policy will
be to advertise for bids for perfecting
and completing the bridge and then sue
the King Iron Bridge company for the
cost of such work. The county has
forty-seven thousand dollars now rest-
ing uselessly in the river at Montopo-
lis ford and some other thousands it
seems must be sent after the first in-
vestment to make it interest bearing.
The Statesman warmly advocated
the establishment of the Alliance cot-
ton yard as a splendid measure for
Austin. But would tho success of that
yard this year have been half what it
has had not the movement been so
earnestly seconded and abetted by
The Statesman? We through our
weekly edition especially have adver-
tised (at our own expense) the exist-
ence of this yard have given the daily
receipts there and the daily quotations
and have urged the farmers to bring
their cotton to Austin. Is the town
appreciative even to the extent of al-
lowing us to boom the city and bring
her merchants trade and all at our
own expense with printers' paid usual
rates! We took a pride in doing our
duty and at our own expense but
when the merchants' and the citizens'
duty comes around who can blame us
for expecting them to do it?
THE LATE- GENERAL HILL.
The memories of the late war are
fading away so fast that the present
generation that never saw an army on
the march nor heard the booming of
siege guns hardly pauses for inquiry
when one of the leaders of the stupen-
dous conflict of 1861 passes away.
The recent death at Charlotte N.
C of D. H.Hill who as a Confederate
lieutenant general confronted the Fed-
eral power has commanded little more
attention than that of some private
individual unknown to fame.
General Hill was no ordinary man.
In theworld of science he stood high
as a mathematician and scholar ; and
as a theologian as shown by his werk
on the "Sermon on the Mount" his
ta en ts equaled those of an eminent
divine. But it is as a military leader
that General Hill will be known to
posterity who will read his name in
the history of the greatest war of the
present era when tho best of us have
been forgotten in the oblivion of time.
In the conflict from the fight at
Big Bethel June 1861 to Bermuda
Hundred in 1864 taking part in the
great battles of An tietam subsequently
Fredericksburg and Chicamauga the
name and fame of General Hill not-
withstanding our indifference in the
prcsentwill shine out to the admiring
gaze of other generations like a star of
the first magnitude in the same orbit
with Lee Jackson Johnston Davis
Grant Hancock Meade McClellan
and other great leaders.
FARMERS' MOVEMENT IN THE
The statement in the dispatches
this morning that seventy-five
thousand farmers of Michigan
had joined the Patrons of Hus-
bandry an organization similar to
the Alliance of this state is signifi
cant of the unrest of the agricultural
interests of the country. It is a won-
der that the farmers of the northwest
on whom like their southern brethren
the burden of unequal taxation has
long rested did not many years ago
do as they are now doing band them-
selves in a vast organization capable of
controlling the politics and legislation
of their several states. The imme-
diate purpose of tho Michigan farmers
is protection against trusts. But even
if the cohesion of their organization
remains perfect a very difficult task
with such a largo body they can
never so well shield themselves from
trusts and monopolies as by voting
against a protective tariff which they
have not for the most part done in
But there is no doubt if the farm
ers throughout tho agricultural states
should follow tho example of the
Michiganders and bind themselves
into a solid organization their de
mands would be listened to on the
floor of congress. The farming in
terests of this country have so long
been oppressed by bad legislation that
it is about time for them to call a
To i.asT Saturday night tho pur
chase of cotton at the Allianco cot
ton yard in this city was seven
thousand and three hundred bales
tho number of bales bought at other
points in the city being about four
thousand. This makes a sum total to
within two thousand bales of the en
tire cotton crop marketed in Austin
last year. It is estimated that not
one-half the crop has yet como in so
that at a safe estimate Austin will
handle at least twenty-five thousand
bales or nearly twice as much as las
year. Austin lias regained ner cotton
market and added to it and next year
will see even larger purchases made.
She pays the best prices and there is
no reason why she should not handle
Mr. John McDonald one of the
candidates for mayor this morning
over his signature gives the citizens of
Austin his position on the burning
questions of the hour the questions
upon which hangs Austin's weal or
woo. He does not mince matters in
the least. His card is an open fear
less unmistakable flat-footed docu
ment. He uses few words and all to
the point. The voters of Austin now
know exactly where Mr. McDonald
stands and they must decide whether
their views agree with his. It would
now seem both fair and necessary that
Mr. Nalle put his views and intentions
as authoritatively before the people.
The choice between the men stands
in the first instance as between their
platforms and these must be known
that tho voters may act intelligently.
Mr. Nalle's platform is in order.
The great Judge Lipscomb once
used Ibis language in rendering a de
cision from the bench : "The practice
of raising certificates from locations
previously made and applying them
to other locations has too long pre
vailed in this county to be now disj
turbed although unsustaincd by law.
If the question was a new one I should
feel strongly inclined to deny the
right; but the practice commenced
with our land system and to upset it
new would disturb land titles to an
incalculable extent." Such was this
great jurist's opinion of what should
be the unimpeachable immutable
character of land titles. The latter
day school of lawyers does not seem
bent upon worshiping at the same
shrine where their illustrious prede-
cessors humbly bowed in reverence.
This last half of the nineteenth cen-
tury furnishes the iconoclast a typical
existence heirlooms are hawked
about the streets.
While the St. Louis Republic is
toying with Dallas for the neat locat-
ing bonus of $100000 the Globe-Dem-oerat
walks off with the shekels for a
page write-up of that prosperous town
about which it says editorially ; "The
Dallas sketches which we print today
show that the young Gotham of the
far sothwest is quite ambitious in the
matter of architecture. There are
buildings in Dallas of which St. Louis
might well be proud." Possibly Dal-
las wants the Globe-Democrat in its
townafter all. But en passant it is
dropped as 'a hint to the Board of
Trade that it might be to Austin's ad-
vantage if they send for a copy of
Sunday's Globe-Democrat and decide
to dress Austin up in print. Our town
needs representation in the north
even little Laredo and Denison in the
way of this kind of public spirit far
outstrip us and indeed all the towns
of Texas. It is time to wake up.
THE COUNTY TEACHERS.
Interesting Meeting of the Teachers' Insti-
tute Which Is Growing in Importance.
There was a good representation of
county teachers present Saturday at
the temporarycapitol when President
Lowry called the County Teachers' in-
stitute to'order. The minutes of the
previous meeting were read and ap-
proved and then the regular pro-
gramme taken up.
Each member responded with ex
ceptional promptness and in a manner
that plainly showed that there has
been no lack of thought and study ex-
pended upon it. It was noticed that
young teachers were taking a lively in-
terest in the discussion of all subjects.
Tho institute is growing in import-
ance and its influence is being felt
The first on the programme was Mrs.
Julia B. Montgommery who discussed
the subject: "Opening Exercises."
Mrs. Montgomery advocates opening
schools with the Lord's Prayer singing
exercises on the musical scales and is
an enthusiastic advocate of having
music and singing in school.
Professor J. B. Rogers read a care-
fully prepared paper on the subject of
"Friday Evening Exercises."
Mr. Rogers maintained that the
practice of often requiring scholars
to commit pieces for recitation waa
erroneous and where they were left
to their own selection and their own
method of reciting them of times it re-
sulted in a positive harm. He
believes in varying programmes as
much as possible and advocated giving
special days for the discussion of the
life and works of some of the standard
Mr. C. H. Hufford then followed
and thoroughly discussed the subject :
"Where Should the Study of Grammar
Begin." Mr. Hufford said that
grammar was one of the most difficult
of sciences and when taught theoret-
ically was too difficult for a child's mind.
Compelling a child to commit rules
and definitions of grammar without
practical exercises he thought only
served to prejudice it against the study
which was a great harm. But as gram-
mar is learned by immitation its lead-
ing principles should be inculcated in
the childs mind very early. The
teacher should be practical encourage
the reading of good books require fre-
quent compositions and letters and
pure language at alljjtimes in conversa-
tion. M. G. W. Robinson favored the in-
stitute with a well written paper on
"How to Impart the First Principles
of Knowledge to Beginners." Colonel
Robinson advocated a combination
of tho concrete and abstract
methods of instruction. He
thought the teacher should use
liberally the principles of induction
but maintained that the present
spirit to dispense with all rules was
wrong; they were tho landmarks of
the great educators of the past ; they
have stood the test of time and should
not be to rashly discarded.
The following subjects were ap
pointed for discussion at the next
I. "How to Organize a school.
II. "Corporal Punishment."
III. "Rewards." .
IV. "When Should Written Compo
sition be Begun?"
V. "To what Extent Should In
struction be Imparted by the State?"
There being no further business the
institute adjourned to meet on Satur-
day November 30 188D.

Speaks and Tells the Citizens of Austin His
Austin Tex. October 29 1889.
To the Editorof the Statesman
The communication in The States
man of this morning asking that the
candidates for mayor and aldermen
shall disclose their views upon the
different measures and questions of
public policy now being discussed
seems to me entirely proper. 1 be
lieve that you are right in saying that
no citizen should "solicit the support
of his fellow citizens simply because he
is ambitious to fill office." Neither
should he seek office to serve himself
or his friends. The citizens have the
right to know the views of each can
didate upon the questions of the day
To the end that they may be informed
so far as I am concerned I will try to
state as briefly as possible the line of
policy and the measures which I have
advocated as a private citizen and
which if elected mayor I shall con-
tinue to advocate and upon this dec-
laration of principles alone will I ask
the support of my fellow citizens.
The proposition to build a dam
across the Colorado river for water
power is one in which I lake a deep
interest. With me it is not new or
born of the present canvass but one
which I ha ?e had under consideration
for at least twelve years and to which
I have given a great deal of careful
study and thought. It seems to me
that it is the all important thing for
tho city of Aurftin a t the present time.
It may be true that we have a good
water and light company and that
this company is rendering good service
and as cheaply as it can afford. But
there is no good reason why the city
should continue paying and allowing
its citizens to pay the present water
and light rates because they are as
cheap as can be furnished by steam
power when it has at hand a ready
means by which a better service can
bo furnished for less money.
By issuing bonds for an amount
moderate in comparison with the ben-
efit to be derived therefrom the city
can raise the money to enable it to
build a dam across the Colorado river
sixty feet high creating at least four
thousand horse power. This would
enable the city to provide water and
light for all public uses and to supply
its citizens with water and light at
one-fourth the price they now pay
and by leasing the residue of power
not required by the city for public
purposes to manufacturing enterprises
the city ca'n derive a revenue sufficient
to pay the interest and sinking fund
on all bonds issued and can greatly
increase the amount of surplus rev-
enues to be used in improving the
streets constructing sewers and beau-
tifying parks. An improvement; of
this kind would be lasting and its
benefits would not only be realized by
those now living but it would con-
tinue to their remote posterity.
I believe in being just to the water
company and I believe in being just
to ourselves. We do not in our pri-
vate business affairs make great sac-
rifices for the benefit of the invest-
ments of others. Public affairs should
be managed much in the same man-
ner as private affairs. Let us do those
things which will build up a city and
bring to our people a lasting prosperi
ty. Let us first create a necessity
and demand for paved streets and an
extensive sower system and we will
then find the means with which to
provide these things.
I am in favor of having good streets
but I am not in favor of issuing any
large amoimt of bonds for this pur-
pose. I believe that tho current reve-
nues of the city are sufficient if
economically and judiciously expended
to keep tho streets in good repair
especially if the work .done was more
permanent in character and the money
expended on those streets where
improvement is needed and all work
-done should be permanent in charac-
ter. The drainage of the streets should
receive careful attention and should be
such that the falling water would be
carried away and not allowed to wash
out the improvements. Our streets
if graveled and rolled with a ten-ton
roller and properly drained would
stand like paved streets under our
present light traffic.
I believe in extending our city sew-
erage but this can be done from time
to time as our current revenues will
admit. The growth of the city is not
likely to demand a more rapid exten-
sion than can be made within the cur-
I have always been a friend to the
public free schools and I would favor
the issuing of bonds in a reasonable
amount to provide needed ' school
buildings. I do not regard the tem-
porary napitol as a suitable building
for a high school. We should have a
high school building also one or two
in east Austin and one for the colored
school. Yours respectfully

Washington October 25 1889.
Special Correspondence to the Statesman.
Mr. Harrison has been happy this
week compared to what he has been
for several weeks past notwithstand-
ing the kicking of the Illinois sena-
tors at the appointment of Mr. Raum
to be commissioner of pensions. It is
only fair to the new commissioner to
say that the senators do not object to
him personally but they blame Mr.
Harrison for appointing him without
consulting them and besides they
object to Mr. Raum's being credited to
Illinois when he has been a resident
of Washington for many years. But
all this is nothing to Mr. Harrison
when compared to the torment he was
daily going through in trying to find
a man who was big euough who would
consent to take Tanner's vacant seat.
One would suppose that this ap-
pointment would have ended the pen-
sion scandal but on the contrary the
scandal ha hardly begun as the pub-
lic will see a little later on. There is
a seeming disposition on the part of
tho officials of the interior department
to shield somebody that is bound to
result in trouble. For instance when
a list of the employes of the pension
office who had their pensions revoked
by Tanner was published this week
ten or twelve names including that of
First Deputy Commissioner Smith
who got more than $6000 arrearages
were left off. The whole iruth about
this business will never be known until
a congressional investigation is held
and it is certain to be held. In the
meantime the disinterested public is
waiting to see if Commissioner Raum
proposes to discharge those officials
whom Secretary Noble has openly
charged with fraudulently obtaining
money from the government. i
The board of promotion of the
World's exposition of 1892 composed
of representatives from nearly all the
states held an enthusiastic meeting
here this week. A memorial to con-
gress setting forth the advantages of
holding the exposition in Washing
ton and calling attention to the fact
that it is to be a national celebration
and should not be controlled by local
corporations was unanimously adopted
and will be brought to the attention
of congress as soon as the session
opens. The board called on the presi-
dent to get his help. He gave' them a
diplomatic answer not deeming it
good policy at this time to openly fa-
vor any particular locality. It is
known however that Mr. Harrison is
heartily in favor of Washington.
The fight for the speakership of the
house may now be consitlered as open.
Mr. Cannon has been here for some
time and the others will all be here in
a few days. Mr. Cannon's friends fig-
ure that Mr. Reed will go into the
caucus with 72 votes 13 less than the
number necessary to nominate while
Mr. Cannon will start with 45 votes.
They claim that Reed's vote will fall
off after the first ballot and Cannon's
increase until he gets tho nomination.
Your correspondent believes that
Reed who is secretly supported by the
administration will be nominated be-
fore the fourth ballot is reached in the
Representative Houck.'of Tennessee
announces his purpose to introduce a
bill in congress repealing the civil ser-
vice law and to force it to a vote if
possible. If such a bill ever gets be-
fore the house party lines will not
count for much as it has opponents
as well as friends on both sides of the
Honorable Roger Q. Mills has ar-
rived in the city for the winter. His
duties will not be as arduous during
the coming session as they were at the
last. Mr. Mills does not think that
any legislation of importance will be
passed by this congress.
Chief Justice Miller has put a stop
to the talk of nominating him for
president in 1892 byjstating positively
that under no circumstances will he
allow the use of his name in that
connection. And to clinch the mat-
ter he has told a friend that he would
not accept the nomination if unani-
mously tendered him. He is entirely
satisfied with his present position.
Secretary Noble sneeringly speaks
of Tanner as a "back number." He
should remember that ho will himself
be a "back number" one of these days.
It is always the fate of office holders.
Twenty-two million dollars is the
amount that congress will be asked to
appropriate to continue the' building '
of the new vessels for the navy.
