There is an active movement under
way among interested railroad officials
looking to the early building of a
union depot at Fort Worth commen-

Certtjn statesmen are fond of figur-
ing out -that wheat is always in sympa-
thy with silv-r and that the low price
of wheat has been due solely to the
low ppce of silver. Wheat has ad-
vanced over fifty per cent recently
while silver has not advanced at all.
Will some brother explain why silver
dosen't "sympathize" with wheat?
Tht re is nothing more encouraging
than the steady increase of business
and wage in the great industiial estab-
lishments of 'the country. Kentucky

There seems tc be no such hind-
rance to a high degree of speed in the
operation of the electric car as there is
to the ordinary raillroad car. On this
subject the N. Y. Telegram say:
"The perfectly balanced armature
with its rotary motion can be saftly
run at any speed short of that which
would make it fly apart by reason of
centniugal force. It has been found
in practice that the electric car can be
run today at ninety miles an hour as
readily as the common train cars at
thirty miles and this with the art of
electric railroading as yet confessedly

The Jim Crow free silver politicians
are now beginning to ask wheie

about the matter is that the free silver
politicians of Texas were afraid to go
When they read the letter authorizing
them to paw up the dust and bellow for
Texas the whites of their eyes looked
like wild half moons rising out of a
fleeing cyclone. S tine of them did not
thank the governor for thus calling them
down. They did not go. As The
New's Washington correspondent aptly
obseves: "The farmer in Texas who
has been for years listening to our con-
gressman as to the necessity for unlimi-
ted coinage can now with every reason
and with perfect justice ask them when
