The greatest reformers of the past
have been scorned with everlasting
contempt, ond have had erected, in
the minds of their enemies, monu-
ments of eternal misery and woe.
About four hundred years ago,
bound together by the Divlnest laws,
there came to this free, yet deso-
late country, a man and wife seeking
religious liberty and peace in the ab-
sence of a foreign Priest and king.

God and named Martin Luther, and
who became the greatest reformor of
his day, that was ever seen by angels
It is said that the greatest question
that ever came into his mind was,
"How shall I appear before God?"
But the corrupt system of papalism
*.ff ;red no healing for the wounded
soul, no water to quench its thirst.
But in 150K,while searching through
the library, lie found an old Bible
written in the Latin liriguage. Hav-
ing read the history of Samuel and
others, his fervent prayer was, "Oh,

He was taught to rely on Mary in-
stead of Christ, and afterwards said:
"At that time I would have died in
full reliance in Mary."
VVe now rest, for a time on the his-
tory of this great man, and declare
unto this sinful world the impossibility
of reformation without persecution.

the fourth department on product-

Houston, Auar. 17.—Considerable ex

they will bo to the convention ball in
a body and be seated.
Memb era of the state committee
offered the quota of badges to the Clark
men and tliey were refused.
This was especially true us to the Dal-
las county delegates.
9'tutorial Chairman Gilbert went to
the Hutchins House and after a search

prominent members of the delegation,
including Secretary Parry, all of whom
refused to receive them, soino in harsh

In the meantime a sub committee of

11 a. m.—The Clark men are in caucus.
They are l aving badges printed from a

The hall not having been turned over
to the committee as yesterday promised,
the hall, including the section for tho
delegates, is filled indiscriminately with
delegates, Contestants and visitors and
the citizens of Houston.
The local c >munt.reo failed to turn
over the hall at 11:15, and the Clark
men marched in. Tie Clark men got
the best of the seats in the Sixth dis-
trict,—Dallas and Rockwall—oily three
of the Hogg men from Dallas being
present. The band played inspiring
The Clark men wore Clark badges
with a Dallas budge. It is hard to tell
which faction has the largest represen-
tation in the seats. Much confusion
prevails, but good order. The conven-
will be called to order at 12.
As the Clark men came into the hall
the standard bearer planted a Clark
"Turn Texas loose" banner at a corner
of the stand.
The canse of the dissatisfaction among
the Clarkites about b.rdg»s was that
they supposed the committee's action
was aimed at their big delegations
when Wood, Grimes, Waller and other
Hogg counties also sent on an average
of over 100 delegates.
The mottoes over the stand are, "Wo
must preserve pure Democracy," "One
hundred thousand majority for tn«
nominee of this convention," "Texas'
united Democracy and levelopment."
Mr. Bonner,the Clark standard bearer,
waved the banner amid roaring cheers
from tie?) Clark men.
The chairman of the local committee
asked all who occupied seats in the sec-
tion set apart for delegates to retire and
leave the seats for the delegates, Hous-
ton owed this to the convention. Chair-
man Finley then insisted that before
llie convention conld proceed the dele-
gates jnust nil be seated in their proper
senatorial districts. Confusion and
cries of, "Sit down!" Finley again
raps for order and insists upon order.

He introduced Web F'liley, the

Chairman Finley made a good Demo-
cratic speech; greeting adherents of the
Democratic faith, representative s of a
party organized and pledged to protect
the rights and interest of all people;
equal rights to all, 8|>ecial privileges to
none. Ho reviewed the history of t he

Secretary Kaufman began calling thfl

Matlock says the chairman had no
right to make an arbitrary ruling; that
they could have a division. Matlock in
the name of Democracy protested
against a vote by counties. Cac calls,

call of counties continues.

their ages being offset by her supposed
wealth. A few days since he came ill
from his ranch to buy supplies in
Juarez, He made himself popular with
the merchants and they tumbled oveii
one another in their haste to sell him
goods. What the man wanted was to
dispose of his crop of whait, grapes and
other fruits for part cash and the bal-
ance to be tfiken out in trade, the farm
products to be delivered later on. He
succeeded in making arrangements with

pecially in the mining regions. A mols

watch on the part of the guards kept
the prisoners within the walls. Several
hundred shots were fired. Three guard i

fatally hurt. Six miners were injured,
but, none of them fatally hurt. Tin!

unknown parties for the purpose of
robbery. In attempting to protect hid

San Francisco, Aug. 17 —A. K. Wil-

Purchasing company,, has absconded
leaving many creditors. About tbred
months ago Williams opened offices hers
and issued a circular stating that he
had made ai-angements with a mercan-
tile company whereby he conld pur-
chase goods at a discount. A fee of $1C
entitled a country merchant to member-
ship. Williams did a good business.
He received cash from country cus-
tomers and purchased goods from mer-
chants here on credit. A large number
of dealers were thus defrauded in sums
ranging from $10 to $200, Williams is
said to have worked the scheme in New
York city and then came here.
Tito Cowboys ami Many Head of Cattle
Boise City, Ida., Aug. 15.—Hungry
prospectors caused the loss of 860 head
of fine cattle and the death of two
cowboys near Bannock Butts. The
prospectors, who are now under arrest,
attempted to capture a yearling calf
which had strayed from the herd. Tho
animal gave the men a fine chase and
finally ran into the herd. The foolish
prospectors, instead of now abandoning
their hunt for fresh moat, tried to cut
out the calf. The herd became excited
and a stampede resulted. The cattle
ran toward the brink of a precipitous
cliff and the cowboys who had them In
charge tried to head them off. Tho
cattle were thoroughly frightened and
continued to madly rush toward the
abyss. Two cowboys, Jerome Wassou
and Dan Hancock, succeeded in getting
in front of the herd, and by shooting
and yelling attempted to bring the ani-
mals to a standstill, but they were un-
able to storm the bellowing ttde, and
they endeavored to get out of the wuy.
The brink of the cliff was dangerously
near, and the men rode for their lives.
Their horses were not speedy enou ;h
however, and their horrified compan-
ions saw tliem swept off the cliff as the
maddened animals, unable to stop,
rushed over the edge of the precipice.
There were over 700 cattle in the herd,
but only 361 were forced off the cliff.
They fell 97 feet, and all save one of
them were either killed outright or
mortally injured. The lone Bteer that
escaped was not even scratched, the
carcasses of the cattle that first went
over forming a writhing cushion that
broke its fail. The bodies of the two
cowboys were found under the mass of
cattle. They were dreadfully mangled,
aud their horses, too, were dead and-
badly crushed. The remaining cow-
boys shot a'l the wounded cattle. The
carcasses are now being skinned. In
many cases bones have been forced
through the bides of the animals, de-
priving them of thoir commercial value.
The Indians in the locality are feasting
on the monad of beef, and it ia *■"'!

An Unusual Demand.
Ni'.w York, Aug. 16.—A crucial test
of the policy of the government was
made when Heidelbaoh, Yeckellieiiner
& Co. tendered $1,000,000 iu treasury
notes issued on account of silver pur-
chases aud demanded for them ?tr000,-
000 in gold, to be -hipped to Germany.
The treasury officials paid the $1.000,-
000 in exchange for the treasury uote®
aud the load was carted away and put
on a steamer. Tiie transaction caused
some comment, as no home institution
in the history of the country evor made
such a demand, and tho impression iui
many places is that the firm took the
step more to see if they could got it aud!
force a crisis. Ex-Treasurer Robert*
was at the sub-treasury when the gold
was being carted away and admitted it
was the first titan snch a demand was
ever made, although heretofore gold waa
given for old gold and also for treasury
notes. He said: "No steps have been
taken by the administration to prevent
or obstruct the export of gold. Tha
government stands ready to meet all its
obligations in gold and will pay them.
The free gold balance is now $112,-
By this statement ft, is clear that the
government is already decided on the
plan to nay all the silver treasury note*
in gold, if demanded.

Transportation of (jutil.
Washington, Aug. 16.—The exact
cost of carrying the big gold shipments
across the continent is not known at
the treasury department, but Assistant
Treasurer W'helpley says that it will
probably not be more than $8500 alto-
gether. It was hauled by the railroads
under their regular mail contracts and
came through as registered mail. Tho
assistant treasurer at San Francisco had
500 boxes made especially for the ship-
ment at a cost of $1000. Then there
were the personal expenses of the 51
men who went out to San Francisco
and guarded the treasure on ite way
east. These were the principal expen-
ditures. The laborers at the mint at
San Francisco were pressed into service
to pack and load the money; the regular
employes of the railway mail service
guarded it; the arms which the guards
carried were taken from the arsenal,
and the mail wagons of the postofflce
department were used tocarry thebox -s
to and from the cars. The lowest bid
the treasury department could obtain
from an express company for hauling
the money was $8 per $1000, or $00,000.
This, of course, would have included
the risk of loss in transit by Mflklent or
theft. The Wells-Fargo, v,^BRontrola

made this rate.
