worse. Governor Coke is receiving
enough of ridicule and obloquy from
his quondam friends to call for the
sympathies of his political oppoti
ents and to protect him from criti-
cism 011 our part just now. If there
be any truth iu the adage, that the
Treasury ot a State is the State,
Texas is at present iu a deplorable
condition. Governor Coke's admin-
istration, after breaking down mor-
ally, has failed beyond hope of re-
covery financially. Its friends are
dispirited, while its enemies are
jubilant. It is helpless, not only
owing to the feebleness of its organ
at Waco, but because it has 110 or-
gan at the Capitol. Never before
was any State Administration re
duced to that. Then, Mr. Downs,
the editor of the Waco Examiner,
the only accredited organ of Gov.
Coke in the State, has been indis-
creet, as well as weak. When he
told the editor of the Statesman,
in substance, that lie secured the
nomination for Coke, and besides,
first brought Mr. Attorney General
Clark into notice, he talked too fast
with his mouth, — as the phrase
goes. When he signified that the
Public Printing was not to be let
to the lowest bidder, aud intimated
that he was to have one third of the
profits without investing any capi
tal, for securing it to any firm that
would let him in, he showed a sad
lack of moral perception. Governor
Coke would do better without any
organ at all, than with such a one
as the Waco Examiner. Whether
the Grangers can stand him much
longer, remains to be seen.
Ou conversing with the moneyed
men of Austin we found much cou<
jecture extant as to what Governor
Coke would next try to do to re-
trieve his lost ground 011 the im-
portant matter of finance. The gen-
eral opinion seemed to be that he
was wholly unequal to the emerg-
ency, into which he had worked
himself, aud that in consequence he
could do nothing that would extri-
cate his administration from the
calamities with which it was over-
whelmed. One of them said that
he had not the nerve to direct the
Comptroller to issue a circular, in
structing that treasury warrants
should be receivable for taxes, al-
though by so doing he could atonce
make Warrants and the State
Bonds, into which they are convert-
ible, woith not less than 95 cents
per dollar. Another added that he
would not venture to do so, for fear
it might cause payment of the ac-
cruing salaries of himself and his
officials to he postponed. I £ive
thise observations for what they
may be worth.
When the 13th Legislature — a
Democratic body—undertook to ex-
empt 53 counties from all State
Taxes, under the pretext, they were
frontier counties, Gov. Davis' ad-
ministration held, that it could not
be done, because the constitution
declares, that taxation shall be
equal aud uuiform throughout the
State. Governor Coke has held
the contrary. In consequence, while
.13 counties are exempted, the re-
maining S4 are taxed to pay State
troops, ordered out under the pre-
text of defending the 53 !
No wonder our Bonds, when
sought to be put upon the market
by a member of the Legislature, not
a financial man, could not be sold.
When will the Public and Gen-
cannot protect the lives and proper-
ty of her citizens, we are not likely
to be overrun by immigrants aud
flooded with surplus capital.
What is the remedy ?
Royalty is not secure from thi misfor-
tunes with which common humanity is
alHieted. S..nie a->tapiarian has been as-
certaining the fate of various rulers, and
gives ir, as the resul., that out of 2,540
emp'roi s and kings, over 01 nations, 299
were dethroned, lit abdicated, 20 commit-
ted suicide, 11 went mini, U 0 died on the
hattle-tield, l'J'i wvre made prisoners, 25
Were pronounced martyrs and saints, 151
were assassinated, 02 t. ere poisoned, and
108 were sentenced to death, and the list
shows a larger proportion of casualties
than occurs to double the same number of
any other class of persons.
