A Hew Eailroad for Galveston.
A prcject is one foot tr- build a line
of railroad from UalVestoti to the north-
east reaching through Deaumont
Tins route would take the road through
cxtensiye rune (Wests t"i t.ip some
large rock quarries. It u further pro-
posed to continue the line to the west
ward from Galveston uti'izing the
present Galveston Western so far as it
goes extending to Vcl.isco. then
through Ilrazona country the northern
part of Matagorda southern pait of
Wharton northern part of Jackson and
southern part of Lavaca to Yoakum
connecting here with the Aransas Pass
road and giving direct route to the city.
Fauing through the counties mentioned
the road would secure the trade from
tne richest cotton and sugar lands in
the state and make Gilreston the
naturil location for extensive sugar re-
fineries and cotton mills Another
route bcinj considered is from the
present terminus of the Galveston
Western to Eigle Lake f'ing through
Brazoria Koit B-:nd and Wharton
counties Numerous business men in
the city luve expressed a willingness
to take hold of the orojer-.. and sever-
al have agreed to take hji the bonds.
The matter js meeting s-urh universal
support that it is probihtc that some
thing definite inay be done shortly
The Memphis Commercial gives the
following friim the New Vurk Post as
an analysis of pur fearfully and won-
derfully constructed currency system.
i. Gold coin. This is tie founda-
tion of the whole Ever) thing else rests
upon u including tne standard silver
. dollar. The goid dollar is the "unit of
value" and the only one known to the
law. The meaning of the phrase "unit
or value.' since the silver dollar was
tc-introduced into our coinage in 1878
seems to be rcsincicdlo custom house
valuations the rating of foreign coins
and other technical matters. Inas-
much as gold is the only thing in our
variegated currency That stands on its
own bottom it results thatgokUmllion
answers the same purpose as gold coin
for monetary uses.
a. Standard silver dollars. There
are about $60000000 of these in cir-
culation answering the same purpose
as small notes The remainder of theN
silver dollars about $347000000 ate
held in the government storehouses
most of them being represented by
j. Silver certificates. According to
the latest report there wtre$36 68o-
803 of these in circulation and there
can be 'no more of them. These
pieces of paper are not legal tender.
4 Greenbacks. These arc the legal
tender notes issued during the war
amounting now to $346681010 of
which about $t 00000000 are held by
the national banks as part of their re-
serves No more can be issued.
5. Legal tender notes under tltc act
of 1890. These arc issued in pay-
ment for silver bullion bought by the
government under said act at the rate
of 4 500000 ounces per month. With
silver selling at 87 cents per ounce the
monthly outjiut of notes would be
about $3900000 This is a continu-
ing operation. The whole amout at
present is about $100000000.
6. National bank notes. These
amount to $167000000 or there-
abouts. They are not legal tender be-
tween individuals but are such at all
national banks each bank being re-
quired to receive them at par for any
indebtedness due to itself.
. 7. Gold certifiicates and legal tender
certificates are not in general circula-
tion They are issued by the treasury
on the deposit of gold or of either
kind of legal tender notes for the con-
veniences of banks.
8. Subsidiary coins. These it is not
necessary to describe. They include
everything less than a dollar that circu-
lates as money. They are not legal
tender beyond five dollars. The treas-
ury redeems them in legal tender
money whenever requested to do so.
An Appalling Record.
Since January 1 there have been
four distructive wind storms killing
nearle 200 persons v.z : April 1 Mis-
souri and Kansas 75; May 16. Texas
1 ; May 27 Wellington Kan 53: June
16 Southern Minnesota 50. In the
same period there have been four great
floods viz; April n.Tombigbee river
250; May 18 Sioux City Iowa. 35;
May 20 Lower Mississippi 36; June
5 fire; and flood. Oil Creek Pa. 196
There also have been four turning dis-
asters viz : Jnnuar 7 McAlh-det I
T 65; April 20 Minersville. Pa 12;
May 10 Rosiyn Wash 44; May 13
Butte. Mon . 11. Three fiies hae
been unusually disastrous to hie viz.;
January 21 Indianapolis Surgical In-
stitute 19; February 7. Hoicl Royal.
New York 30; April 28. theatre Pnil-
Besides this there were on March 2 1
an exolosion at Sprdan Michigan by
which ten lives were lost; June 13 the
explosion at the Mare Island Navy
Yard which killed thir een and June
1 5 the fall ot the bridge over the Lick-
ing river hy which 32 lives were sicrt-
ficed. These are the principal disas-
ters of the year thus far. and ihey in-
volve an aggregite of 960 lives. Ad-
ding to this total the sum of losses by
minor ace dents as reported to the
Tribune we have the following sad and
ungual record: By fire 876. by drown-
ing. 1.364 by explosions 31 8; by tai-
ling structures of various kinds 267;
by wind storms 340. nnd by lightning
120. Grand total 3.588. The total
loss of life by these causes during the
whole of last year and 1891 was one
of the most destructive on record
was 5.672. So it is evident that 1892
will far surpass its predecessor
Had Something on his Mind.
A (blue point" to be thoroughly
appreciated should be eaten fresh. Time
increases its flavor but impairs its deli-
cacy. His first oyster was not posi-
tively bad but he did not linger over it
and he concluded tint his second had
been dead lor some days. It was
some comfort however ior him to re-
flect that it had suffered no pain dur-
ing the process of mastication. His
fifth was in urgent need of burial but
he did not feel inclined to undertake
the responsibility ot interring it in him-
self. The oysttr opener declared he
had seldom op-ned a finer oyster
"well then eat it yourself" said the
long suffering consumer. He ate it
but his best friend noticed the young
man had trouble on nis mind for the
next twenty-four hours.
Still Goiug East.
His destination was Abilene but he
never got further than Adair. He had
been told that the further west he
traveled the wilder and woollier things
in general would become so when the
Datum's visited the train at Adair he
concluded to bre4k his journey there
In the absence of anything speedier he
boarded the next east-bound cannon
ball and the latest advices state that he
is still traveling due Cast.
Jley Qeu? b( Had

rial and to furnish just as
