WEDNESDAY, JUNE 24, 1874.
Col. li. Q. Mills, now a member
ef Congress lor tlie State at large,
is proposed for re election from liis
District by the Belton Journal.
Col. Mills is a worth}' gentleman,
was a brave soldier and good officer,
and we feel great interest in bim as
an old friend—even if be is too rabid
It is said tliat Gov. Coke contem-
plates calling an extra session of
the Legislature to consider what is
best to be done to suppress vio
lence, murder and lynch law. For
goodness' sake let the immortal
"Fourteenth" stay at home. The
State cannot afford to pay their
traveling and hotel bills so soon af
ter their last "excursion'' to Austin.
Let us have peace awhile. We do
not need a Legislature, we need a
Governor, who will see that the
laws are executed, and crime pun
At the late Republican Conven-
tion assembled at Austin, the fol-
lowing were elected Chairman of
the Executive Committee of each

A new Chairman of the 6th Dis
trict will have to be appointed in
place of the lamented Col. Newton.

A Bloody Administratis).
"He that soweth the wind hliall
reap the whirl wind." This is the
declaration of Holy Scripture. It
expresses a divine law, as immut-
able as the law ol the tides and the
seasons. We are afraid Gov. Coke
had either forgotten, or had never
studied this law, or did not believe
in its power. He knew well that
Texas was over run with despera-
doism, bloodshed and murder, much
of it caused by political hatred and
proscription, when Gov. Davis went
into office. He knew well that Gov.
Davis went into office with an hon-
est nnd earnest desire to suppress
these evils, and that all his meas-
ures were taken accordingly. Yet
Judge Coke, regardless of the good
name and welfare of the State, used
all the influence he possessed, and
exerted himself to the utmost, to
defeat the honest efforts of Gov.
Davis, and to continue the reign ot
violence and blood, in order that it
might be charged ti the Davis ad
Hut Gov. Davis, notwithstanding
the overwhelming opposition ot
Coke and his cohorts, and notwith-
standing many mistakes in appoint-
ments, and much niiHuaiingement
of subordinates, mio rrded to a won-
derful degree in enforcing the laws,
in arresting and punishing crimin-
als, and in establishing social and
domestic peace and tranquility.
Gov. Coke, during the canvass in
which he was elected, did every-
thing in his power to bring odium
and infamy upon the measures and
exertions of Gov. Davis for the re-
putation and peace of the State.
He denounced him as a tyrant, an
oppressor, a military dictator, and
did his utmost to excite the popu-
lace to the bitterest hatred and fury
against the only Governor Texas
ever had who possessed theeourage
to sacrifice himself in the discharge
of his duty.
During the last canvass, Govern-
or Coke alluded to the following in-
cident in his own town of Waco.
A Lieutenant of the State Police
was seated in the chair of a barber,
while the barber was serving him.
A man rode up, dismounted, \vr:it
in, and shot the officer dead with-
out notice or warning. A fouler as
sassination was never committed.
Gov. Coke, in his speeches, on sev-
eral occasions, alluded to this mat-
ter, and, in relation to it, said:
"When this happened, many of the
people of Waco felt good, and, fel-
low-citizens, 1 /ell good too
Now, can anything but bloodshed,
murder, and lynch law be expected
under the administration of such a
Governor ? Has he not, himself,
publicly approved of assassination ?
Did he not make himself jarliceps
vrimim with the assassin in ques
tion ? Was he not accessory after
the fact ? Did he not pander to the
desperado element duriug the can-
vass, and did he not get the vote of
all the bad men in the State who
had swarmed here after the otate
Police force was disbanded ? Anil
are not his desperado friends carry-
ing out his own publicly avowed
sentiments, in filling the land with
bloodshed, murder, and.lynch law ?
Suppose Davis had been backed
by the people as Coke was when
lie first came in. The State would
have been entirely freed from
thieves and murderers, and not a
county would have been disgraced
by lynch law. The Houston Tele-
graph used to call Davis "the heavy-
handed Governor." Yes, and the
State sadly needs his heavy hand
now. If the people of Texas had a
vote on the question, they would
put him in Coke's place to morrow-
Coke is not a mere failure; he is
bloody, and the curse of blood fol-

Pmi.ADKl.i-HtA, June 20.—A meeting of
the Philadelphia Book Trade Association
was held to-day at noon, the object of
which was to enter a protest against tho
enactment of a reciprocity treaty with
Canada by the Senate. Under this treaty.
Canada merchants dealing in any manu-
factured articles can import from England
or bring them from any other country,
and, after handling, can ship them to this
country duty free. A series of resolutions
were adopted expressing alarm at Canada,
under tho provisions ot the treaty, becom-
ing the great entrepot for the reception of
goods, from all parts of the world, to be
legally smuggled into the United States ;
and stating that the treaty inaugurated
tree trade, and involves the necessity of
collecting the entire revenue of the gov-
ernment by internal taxation. The reso-
lutions were nnanimonsly adopted.

blood was aroused. The discussion was
interfered with by friends. If the cam-

it promises to be interestini;.

brated Prof. Kicord, Paris.
Having been for years a student, at the
large hospitals of Paris, London, Vienna
•ml Copenhagen, and a thorough, large and
varied practice during 15 years, has gain,
ed the most thorough knowledge of the
nature of all chronic diseases and the
treatment thereof, and he has in bis exten-
sive practice had an unparalleled success,

remedy had been tried anil all hope of

of the patient, and many a person docs to-
day, with gratitnds, recall the moment he
placed hiii'self under Dr. Bille's cure.

Dr. Bille has made a speciality, and this :
scourgo of humanity, unsuccessfully treat- ;
ed by most ^practitioners, is easy and j
quickly overcome by his new treatment.
Being a pupil of the most renowned Phy-
sician for syphilitic diseases in the world,
Prof. Kicord, in Paris, Dr. liille will al-
ways guarantee a cure in any case of
syphilitic disease which may come under
his treatment; and hundreds in this city

No man is too old and no young man

Dr. Bille wishes to call particular atten-

can, by the help of microscope and chem-
istry, discover it there is any syphilitic
poison in the blood, which is of the great-
est importance, as persons having hail
venereal diseases often believe themselves
cured, and the poison still remains iu the
