Alderman North then called up the
ordinance pending at the last meeting
appropriating $10000 to pay for right

to second reading.
Alderman Linn suggested that he-

dinance that certain communications
from the board of public works be
read that the council may act intel-
ligently. Carried and the following resolution
was re d :
Whereas all negotiations between
the city and Mr. George VV. Bracken-
ridge looking to the building of a rail-
road from the city depots to the dam
site have terminated by the surrender
of his franchise by Mr. Brackenridge ;
Whereas a railroad is an immediate
necessity to the construction of the
Therefore be it resolved That the
city council be requested to immedi
ately pass the ordinance now pending
appropriating $10000 from the general
revenue for opening Fifth street to the
city limits: and
Beit further resolved That the city
council be requested to appropriate
the sum of $G0000 or so much thereof
as may be necessary from the water
and light fund to enable the board of
public workB to procure the right
of way beyoud the city
limits and to construct a railroad to
the dam site sufficient in strength and
capacity to carry needed material for
constructing the dam.
Mr. Brsckenridge's letter published
in The Statesman yersterday morn
ing was also read.
A committee from the board of pub
lie works headed by Mr. Frank Hamil
ton was present and at the request
of the council Mr. Hamilton in clear
forcible earnest language explained
the contract with Mr. Corrigan and
the agreement with Col. George
Brackenridge relative to the railioad.
His explanation was convincing
and more than satisfactory to the
lw During his remarks Mr. Hamilton
iikillfully and with much vigor hit the
newspapers a whack which caused the
Faber pushers at the reporter's table
to turn pale and the hair on the top of
Maj. Lane's head to stand straight up.

Mr. Hamilton will be forgiven for the

of it and won't say-it again.
Aldermen North made a brief and
neat speech which shed much light
upon the question.
For the especial benefit of Alder-
man Ziller who would not accept the
explanation of Mr. Hamilton and Mr.
Wooldridge who also endeavored to
throw some light upon the mat-
ter Mr. Corrigan was called on
and said that he understoed that he
was to pay all freight charges upon
material conveyed to the dam and he
proposed to do it. The city had no
contract with him requiring the city
to pay freight charges. The contract
only demanded that the city furnish

Ms. Corrigan who is one of the best

The Advertising Work .
Jo the Statesman.
Should Austin spend much money
in advertising? Every citizen should
ponder well this query for the can
viasing committees will now knock at
your door and want an answer. Bestir
your thinking faculties honest citi
zens and be ready whan called on
either to give a specious excuse or
back your convictions with something
C substantial. The advertising can
vassers are worse than census num
erators aud thev tell me they are
keeping a black list of those who re-
fuse to subscribe when solicted to be
published in the column adjoining the
subscribers' list. There are hundred
of well to do citizens who have neve
contributed a picayune pro bono
publico. Indeed there are eo many
such that our city has not kept pace
with her Texas sisters though she
possesses natural advantages and
possibilities far beyond the others
She can easily look down upon all her
rivals from an educational and social
standpoint. With her varied scenery
balmy winter breezes and unexcelled
natural drainage the health seeker
cannot fail to yield her
the palm over the only real competitor
San Antonio. Hi r central location
both with reference to inland Texas
and the several shipping points scat
tered alone the gulf coast justly en
titles her to the claim of occupying
better situation for a rail
way center than either Dallas
Fort Worth or Houston. Her
proximity to the minerals of
Llano the vast cotton fields of the
middle counti. s and the wool markets
of San Augelo and San Antonio taken
in connection with the immense
water power being developed should
rank her not only with Dallas and
New Birmingham but with Lowell as
a mauufauturini;' point. But does the-
world know these things? No! and
the reason is tht re are so many slow
coaches so many mossbacks t-o many
narrow minded business men so many
dry bones that need rattling so many
Kood citizens who cling to backwoods
ideas and to the f flute business meth
ods in vogue long before the war. If
we don't keep up with the
times what good will natural
advantages and great possibilities
do us? Every other important city in
iexas is spending more than we are
in advertising and every other impor
tant city has grown faster than Aus-
tin. The address of the advertising
committee has the true ring in it and
if we mistake not this move marks an
epoch in our progress. Help the com
mittee herald to the world what Aus-
tin is and is to become. Send word to
the capitalist the splendid oppor
tunities for investment Austin of
fers lell the blizzard stricken
fanners of our mild winters and rich
black soil. Inform the eastern man
uacturer of our mineral ores tne
abundance of our raw material aud
our grand water power wasting for
the want of turbines. Let the invalid
of the bleak northern and eastern
states know that we live in a wonder
ful sanitarium where sunny skies and
balmy winds will prolong his life to
venerable old age. If y u do this
then may we expect Austin to take
her true place as facile princeps
among her rivals. x-loy.

One Valuable Result.
Henry Clews the well known finan
cier alluding to the late crisis in
financial circles says:
The crisis has had one valuable in
direct result. It has brought to a
very sharp accountability the reckless
mismanagement that has landed some
of our best railroad properties in their
present sorry financial condition. It
has also created an opportunity for
buying up stocks so as to enable capi-
talists of greater ability and favoring
better methods to get control of a
large mileage of important roads. The
virtual cutting in two of the prices of
such stocks as Rock Island Chicago
Burlington and li'.uncy Illinois Cen
tral St. Paul Union Pacific Atchison
and Topeka etc. has aroused a doep
feeling of discontent among stock hold
ers who will be satisfied in future
with nothing short of a management
that secures satisfactory net earnings
as well as large tonnage. Mr. Gould's
lead in a new policy of co-operation
among ine southwestern roans gives
promise of being a valuable lesson in
the direction of conservative manage
ment. These facts are suggestive of
an improved future condition of the
railroad iuterest and they are likely
to lead to a lasting improvement id
stocks when the money market be
comes more settled.

Yesterday just after dark a collision
ocaured between two buggies and a
hack on West Pecan street breakiuc
up the buggy of Mr. Flume and throw-
ing out Mrs. Flume and her two small
children. Mr. Sendry was coming up
the street and seeing the buggy pull
ed out to the side of the road and just
as Mr. Flume was along side the hack
three men in another buggy driving a
last florae at about a threo minute
clip attempted to pass between the
car track and Mr. Flume's buggy.
There not being sufficient space Mr.
Flume's buggy was thrown against the
wheel of the hack and overturned.
For a while it looked like the lady and
both the children would certainly be
killed but after getting things to
rights it was discovered that beyond a
very bad scare to the children and a
severei shock to the lady nobody was
hurt. ' The gentle horse deserves an

COURT OP APPEALS.
Tyler Tex. Dec. 6 1890.
D. H. Hirshfield vs. City of Dallas
Conviction for pursuing the occupation
of a ticket broker and scalper without
first paying and procuring a license
therefor. 1. Under section 100 of the
Dallas city charter the city is given
the power to license tax aud regulate
certain enumerated occupations "and
all other trades professions occupa
tions and callings the taxing of which
is not prohibited by the constitution
of the State of Texas which tax shall
not be construed as a tax on property."
Held: The city under its charter and
ordinances has the right to levy an oc
cupation tax on ticket brokers and
scalpers. While the State does not
tax ticket brokers and scalpers still
under the charter 'and ordinances the
city had the right to levy the tax. 2
There was no evidence that the tax of
$500 levied by the city was more than
enough to regulate the business. Two
witnesses swore that the tax was pro
hibition of the business and this evi-
dence was not contradicted. If this
be true and the occupation is not
per so injurious to the publio
the ordinance is void. In view of
this unimpeached evidence that the
tax amounted to a prohibition of the
business we feel constrained to hold
1 : i i
ine uruuiance voiu nccause in excess
of the power of the city council and

is illegal. Reversed and remanded

Robert Glass vs. The State from
Bastrop. Kobbery. 1. The indict-
ment was presented and filed Oct. 19
18S9. The evidence showed the offense
to have been committed Oct. 7 1890
Jleld: We cannot presume the date
of the commission of the offense was a
clerical error nor can we presume the
offense whs committed anterior to the
filing of the indictment. Because the
evidence does not show the offense to
have been committed anterior to the
tiling of the indictment the cause is
reversed and remanded. Willson J.
