THE HUBBARD-BURNETT 4 CB. MATTER
The very air is filled with rumors in
regard to the late draft by Governor
Htihliard upon Burnett & Co. which
was suffered to go to protest. Every
day that passes and that the full clear
and authoritative explanation is de
ferred adds but to the injury of the
governor. Colonel Andrews' late card
is not deemed sufficient neither does

more is imperatively neceerery and
that something more can only be fur-
nisbed by Governor Hubbard himself.
over hit own proper signature. We
have not the slightest doubt but he can
clear it op with the utmost ease and
thus urge bim the full nature of the
connection with J. H. Burnett 4 Co..
of what extent character and of what
standing. It may be urge's that it
would be undignified in the governor
of Texas to descend to exi lanations.
Not a bit of it. The honor of
tbe governor of Texas is just as dear to
him personally as the honor of any
other man can be: and besides bit posi.
tion ia such that any stain on it has a
reflected importance to all Texas. So'
Richard Hubbard cares just a much
for the honor of the state at it U aSocted
by the act of ber executive as doe any
otherman in the state. He will doubtless
hail the opportunity of a full explana
tion furnished by a popular demand
with great satisfaction. This Ths Hkb-
u propose to furnish a far aa it own
dividual weight goes and it will be
the very first to give it readers the
benefit of such explanation and it will
rejoice most sincerely if it is clear and
satisfactory enough to entirely relieve
the governor from any itiap cion which
may have fastened itself in tbe public
mind with regard to the matter. .

The Examiner pays Mr. Lang a high
and richly deserved compliment in this
connection and one to which we can
heartily subscribe when it says : " He
is a man of broad practical and intelli-
gent views in harmony and sympathy
with the real progress of the state."
But if we made governors of all tbe
men who exhibit such qualities we
would simply bavo more of them than
could crowd into tbe statehouse.
The Examiiter't correspondent upon
whose letter the article is written is
afraid that the people of this district
will not be willing to spare Throckmor-

thoughtful and generous but perhaps
the people would prefer to be heard be-

we reflect the intelligent sentiment of

trict but that of the whobi state when
we say that the people would be willing
to spare him for one purpose alone and
that is to place him at the helm of

Death at Jawlse C. II. Howard.
San Antonio Herald. December 2tth:
Tbe dispatches of yesterday bring u-i the
intelligence that Judge Charles 11. How-
ard whs killed by the Mexican mob at
San Elizaro during the last day or two.
un me deatu ot Judge Howard we
presume will end the troubleai.d slaugh
ter of men which for tbe last two months
has kept the El Paso country in a state
of feverish encilement. Judge Charles
tlowaru was well known in this city
having resided here and practiced law
several years a short time previous to
his appointment by Governor Coke at
district judge of the El Paso district
He was scarcely more than thirty vears
of age when he met his violent death
having been only about twenty-nve
years of age when he received hia jud-
icial appointment. He was a very bold
and daring man and reckless in his
A short account of the difficulty

death will not be out of place in notic

Some time in May of the present
year Mr. George B. Ziropelman of Aus-
tin the father-in-law of J udge Howard

foot of the Guadalupe Mountain in El

others that had been located by S. A.

ble and for a long time the people of El
Paso county (most of whom are Metis
cans) bad been taking and celling salt
from tbem at wiIL After their location.
Judge Howard as the agent of tbe Zim.
pieman notified tbe people that no
more salt should be taken from the
lakes except with hi permission at the
same time offering the -ame price ner
faoega (we quote now from Judge H.'s
ttatenient made immediately after hit
release ty the moo) tor treieht that thev
had jormerly received tor sale of salt.
The Mexican population of El Paso
county refused to freight the salt for
Judge Howard and said that they had
been advised by Louis Cardis that the
lakes belonged to them. Thus thing
continued for several months. After-
wards a few of the people agreed to
freight salt for him and he had about
five bundree fanegas brought in by El
Paso county freighters. This exaaper-
rted the remaining portion of tbe Mexi-
can population and they again consulted
Cardis who advised them that they
owned tbe lake and should go in a

threatened to do this. Hearing of
taese inreats judge no ward who was
about starting to Fort Davis made com
plaint before tbe county judge that cer
tain person (naming tnem) were
threatening to take salt from the lakes
without authority and by violence and
asked that tbey be put under bond that
they would not interfere with tbe lake
and also asked that the lakes be put
under the cnarc . of tbe sheriff. 1 Two
Mexicans were arrested an this charge
and one of tbem denied any intention
of interfering with the lakes and was
discharged while the other was planed
unuwr ootid. . . -
About that time Judge Howard start

he voluntarily signed the agreement.
Judge Howard left tbecouoty.but dis-
regarding hia promise never to rwturn
as it was exacted of bita under duress
he went back to El Puso a hort time
afterward and encountered tbe Hon.
Louis Cardie on the street and jn a
tight with pistols shot and killed his
antagonist. The Hon. Louis Cardia was
an Italian born at the base of the Alps
and had served while young a cap-
tain tinder Garibaldi. When Judge
Howard first went to El Paso thev be
came warm personal friends but the
love of rule and political leadership was
too strong in the bosom of each to per-
mit either to bold und-sputed suprema-
cy in peace over the crude minds of the
people about them. Each wished to be
sole monarch of that vast but thinlv
populated section commonly called the
El Paso country. At tbe well-remembered
Castroviile convention for tbe
nomination of a senator and represen-
tative for the Rio (irande district to tbe
state legislature both Howard and Car-

between tbem and sealed both. But
this was unsatisfactory to the contest.
ants and here their Imtred for each
other took its rise. Cardis was elected
to me lourreenm legislature and on
one occasion -while Howard was
Austin duriug the esion
the legislature Cardis freelv
indulged in his abuse of Howard. Judge
Howard heard of this and meet i n
ardis one day on the street be assault
ed him but no serious injury was done
bafbre their friends separated them. All j
the efforts of their respective friends to
make peace between tbem were fruit-
less their hatred was so deadlv: each
teemed as if he would not rest until be
had drawn the blood of the other. Nei-
ther ever showed any fear of the other. '
and every time they met they both well
understood that there would be a per-
sonal combat. A fe months ago Hows
d whose home is said to be at Fort
Davis visited El Paso where Cardi-
ved and while there met Cardis when
tight took place.
It we are not misinformed Howard
is indicted tor assaulting Cardis on
th is occasion. Cardis appears to have
been more popular with the Mexicans
than waa Howard and they always sup-
ported bim for oltice whenever he pre-
euted liinuell a candidate before them.
By them he was elected to the four.
teenth legislature ot tbe state was sent
as a delegate to the constitutional con-
vention of 175 and sgala elected to ihe
.egialalure aa a representative. From
the time of the killing of Cardi. great
excitement has prevailed in El Paso.
.Some weeks ago Mnjer Jones of the
state troops weut to El Paso alone and
at one time thought he would succeed
quieting tbe populace. But .1 udce
Howard was to tbe Mexican population.
whose favorite he but killed as the
red flag to the bull. Twenty. five
or thirty rangers were ent to his
assistance.jit once and we presume thit
Howard accompanied these to rsan i-li-
zario. A te days ago the state troop
were surrounded by the infuriated noli
who demanded that Howard be deliver
ed up to them that they might have
him shot. 1 he ranger refused to com-
ply with their demand and a battle
ensued in which Sergeant Ellis of tbe
rangers was killed sod perhaps other.
The mob surrounded the rsngen and
beseiged them in a house. Dispatches
yesterday state that two rangers 41 c
Bnde and Atkinson were shot at the
same time with Howard and tbe rest
of the rangers disarmed and liberated.
But a later dispatch from Washiniitoa
tay s that Governor H ubbard telegraph
tnai tne rest ot the ranger are prisons
era. Dispatches received yesterday say
that the state troops surrendered to the
mob day before yesterday and Howard
and the two rangers shot and the rest
ef the rangers disarmed and liberated.
cut later advices received last night
state that tb rest of the state troops
are still prisoners in the bsnds of the
mob and will likely share tbe horrible
fate of their companion unless aid is
quickly received from United State
troops m ew Mexico who are march
ing to their relief. We hope that the
thirst of tbe El Paso Mexican for
Howard's blood has been abundantly
satiated by the crimson stream which
ebbed sway the young life of their vic
tim and his two companions snd we
ill be spared tbe mournful duty ol
chronicling on the morrow the murder
n cold blood of other citixen of le
to be added to the names of those men

trict uider the civil service reform
(senator Patterson pamed an unvoiu
fortable night and at the turn of day
suffered much pain but at two o'clock
this evening bad rallied acaiu.
The 8tar say: "Tbe pending reeolu
tion otteird by Krualor Butler to in

ever will oiler a suhatltule that tbe
investigation be conducted by a rpvclal
eoaBosiUswv which substitute betiator
Butler may accept.
The secretary of tbe treasury bas re-
ceived the report of Walter Walton
assistant iaspeclur of the life saving
service who was ordered to iL ve.U-
gate the cireumataneee connected with
the recent wreck of the Huron with
especial reference to life savings sta-
tion No. 7. The report contain testi
mony mostly from tlioee who wit
tieeeed the wreck from shore. It
particularly severe on a fUhernisu of
Nagaliead named Evans O'NeU wbo
waa the first to see the wreck. At half-
past one o'clock a. tn. he wa out bunt-
ins; wild fowl and saw tbe vessel be-
fore she struck ; ssw ber strand and
beard tbe scream of those on board
and yet neglected to give warning to
tbe life sa ing station. He had a good
b jat the wind was in his favor sod
tbe water to Koauoke Island wa com-
paratively smooth and be could have
given the information in twenty min-
utes as the dwtauce was twu mile and
a half away. He however weut home
and ale bis breaktaat aud did not re
turn to tbe wreck till seven o'clm-k.
Lieutenant Waltou thinks U.at had
the life saving station lieen tu opera-
tion or had tbe keeerof thestaliou
reoetved timely notice nearly if not
all of those on board the Huron could
bave been eavrd. Tbe bodies of Ihnee
wbo perished were robbed a they were
washed aehore aud out of ninety-one
bodies twelve of which were officers.
not a single trinket which would lie
treasured as a r. lie by the relatives re-
mained. Watches money aud even
rings wete stripped oft by those who
first fuuud the bodies. Lieutcnaut
Walton asya that such actions as these
together with the Inhuman conduct of
Evan O'Neal easts a stigma aud re-
proach on the iubabilauU residing on
the beach along tbe coast from ('ape
Henry to Cape 11 altera. He advises
that tbe keepers of life savlug stations
be invested with the pow ers and duties
of inspectors of customs which will
prevent svi-h disgrsoeful actions in
cases of thipwreck. Tbe report re
lieves the member of the life saving
statloua from any blame.
