STATE PHES S.
The WVathcrford News is carrying its
conundrums into the region of moral
philosophy. It asks:
If a gentleman comes to your oflice
or dwelling and borrows a book, and
carries it to his home, office or court-
house, we would like to know if he is
not in honor hound to return it.
Not " if the court knows herself."
Custom makes law in this case; yet the
Weatlierford journalist goes so far as to
s&y that people who " act like they had
a perfect right to take a book from your
shelves without your knowledge or con-
sent, and if you complain say you are
very nice about small matters," are in
the wrong. An editor who can write
in this style would feel rebellious in
seeing his friends carry away his best
exchanges before lie had read them.
The Han Antonio Herald, in reply to
the attack made on the press by the
Governor, charging exaggeration and
unreliability in regard to the publica-
tion of murders and other outrages,
says "in this part of the State not more
than one-half of the outrages ever
reach the public through the news-
A correspondent of the Freie Presse
makes the following statement to the
Highway robbery li.is become quite a
common occurrence. Not one-tenth
•part of the capital offenses are pub-
lished in the newsjxipers. I can fill you
up a whole column with murders and
robberies that have taken place west of
San Antonio, of which no newspaper
lias had a word to say. The reason for
this is to be found in the fact that such
affairs have become of too frequent
occurrence to merit attention, and the
honest people are ashamed to publish
it to the world, that the locality where
their homes are is a perfect paradise for
thieves and scoundrels.
The Jefferson Jimpleeute has a name
that does not signify; but it has brains,
notwithstanding its bad head, as the
following remarks from its columns
If the newspaper columns were a
fair criterion, and they should be, of
the importance or standing of the
places in which they are published, we
are liable to be deceived very often of
the population and general business of
many towns. Some papers are literally
crowded with advertisements and spe-
cial notices from their merchants, law-
yers, doctors, mechanics, and reflecting
a spirit of enterprise and business im-
portance that leads the reader to infer
that their town is one of much larger
proportions than it really is, when, on
the other hand, other papers are almost
bare of any sign of thrift or
enterprise of their people. In every in-
stance towns remain dormant and of no
importance—their citizens lack that
spirit of enterprise to lead them on to
any commercial standing. It is not a
mere matter of speculation, but a well-
known fact, that where enterprise is
displayed, and the people advertise
their towns and business, success and
progress is the result. Let a newspaper be
well filled with the business of its peo-
ple, and it will draw attention—every-
body will infer that it is a prosperous
place, and thus it continues to grow
and grow commercially and otherwise.
No place will ever become of any im-
portance without l>eing advertised;
there is no plan so advantageous as the
advertising of each and every business
prosecuted. It draws attention and
forms a favorable impression abroad.
The Weatlierford News urges the
people to improve the common roads
of the county, not only for their own
convenience, but for the sake of draw-
ing trade and population. The same
paper urges parties owning lands and
lots, the titles to which have been de-
stroyed by the destruction of the
county records by fire, to renew the
same while there are living witnesses
of their rights.
The San Antonio llerald continues to
call for a division of the State, and
Though it is of but secondary impor-
tance to the people of Western Texas,
in deciding upon the question of divi-
sion, that the State of Texas is badly ad-
ministered, yet in itself it is a matter of
very grave importance. We can not
close our eves to the fact that the
troubles in Western Texas arise from
bad government, the evidence of which
is in the existence of mob law—and
other evidences of lawlessness and
crime—the spoliation of our domain—
our herds of cattle and our droves of
horses subjected to the freebooter and
the thief. There must be some deep-
felt cause for the alarm manifested by a
law abiding people to use their own
power and execute justice by their own
bands upon those whose crimes have
made them outlaws. It must be
an .overwhelming conviction that the
regular constituted authorities of the
State are either unable or unwilling
to bring such desperate criminals to
condign punishment. What, but the
existence of such aa extraordinary con
dition of affairs, would have organized
the mobs at Oonzales, Scguin and New
Braunfels ?— communities remarkable
for their pcaecfuhiess and quietude. We
have on many occasions spoken our
sentiments freely in relation to our
State government. We have been wit-
ness to the eminent success of the first
administration of Gov. Coke; we have
always believed in his ability and in his
integrity and his industry. Such was
our opinion, though we were then the
earnest advocates for a division of the
State, because we believed our sec-
tional interests required to be retired
from the hostile influences of trans-
Colorado legislation. We to-day have
confidence in the ability, integrity and
industry of Gov. Coke; but we have no
Confidence in his latter administration of
the State government. Other influences
have been brought to bear malignantly
hostile to Western Texas. Onerous
taxes are heaped upon us, our frontier
harassed, our people robbed and mur-
dered throughout the length and breadth
of the land, bonds sold to pay the cur-
rent indebtedness of the State, new of-
fices created, salaries increased, the
public domain recklessly squandered,
the Legislature sold out to railroads,
and even some of the highest officers of
the government astounding the people
of the State by an open and, as the
people believe, shameless prostitution
of their high offices to the base pander-
ing to a soulless corporation—a mere
moneyed corporation, run for greed and
The Kerrville Frontiersman does not
bow quUSgo lowly to the setting sun of
the Fifteenth Legislature as becomes a
devout worshiper of that body:
Discussion of the shortcomings, the
blunders and generel incompetency of
this Fifteenth Legislature, would be
vain and endless. Some radical change
there must be; as it is the situation is
hopeless, desperate. A constitution
poor enough at best, is a nullity for
want of vital supplementary enact-
ments; a great State is drifting, para-
lyzed, surely and not slowly, into anar-
chy and dismemberment. This we say
in sorrow and in anger, for division is,
after all, a choice born of necessity
rather than inclination.
With a law making body, supposed
to be fairly representative of her people,
which, after three months of delibera-
tion, bas only succeed in making con-
fusion worse confounded, and an ex-
ecutive whose 'chief aim seems to be
neither more nor less than personal ag-
grandizement, Texas has cause to hang
her head in shame, disgraced as she is
by those who should do her honor. m
There is food for grave thought and
consideration among the people. Care-
lessness, ignorance or blind partiality
at elections has brought us where we
are. Wise counsels, prudent but
prompt action have alone the power to
extricate us from the sorrowful plight
of a free land in the bondage of disor-
der, and nothing but the future elec-
tion of the best men, regardless of
party, regardless of mere personalities,
regardless of anything but the fact of
entire fitness and competency, can ever
bring about a really good government
and the natural sequence of solid pros-
perity, security and content.
The Waxaliacliie Eriterprixe makes
great eyes and exclaims:
Hear it, ye nations! The Galveston
News approves of Coke's veto of the
bill authorizing the construction of
wharves, piers, etc., at any point de
sired in any of the navigable waters of
Nothing wonderful in this. The
News is ever
"Willing to praise where praise is due,
But not afraid to blame."
A good deed in a naughty world is so
rare that it is not wonderful that an in-
dependent press should seem to find
more room for censure than commenda
The Sherman Courier makes the re-
marks which follow on the arrange
ment by which Texas is allowed one
mail a week less than any other State:
Texas is the only State in the Union
blessed with railroad mail facilities that
has not a daily mail over her line. At
Denison, and likewise Texarkana, fully
5000 pounds of mail matter lies over
24 hours in each week going each way,
no mail arriving or departing on Sun-
days. This is a serious drawback to
the business public, especially of North-
ern Texas. The superintendent of rail-
way mail service is laboring to have this
deficit remedied, and calls upon the
press to aid him. As the press suffers
particularly from irregular and deficient
mail service, the newspapers should
certainly unite their efforts for this de-
sired increase of mail service. It has
not been heretofore, we presume, a pay-
ing business to run express trains on
Sunday over these roads. It will
doubtless pay in the future with the
rapidly accumulating passenger busi-
ness and the increased and rapidly in-
creasing commercial business which
absolutely demands every day mail into
and out of the State over these lines.
The >Vac° Ejcamirftr says:
After a spirited contest between Han-
cock, Finlay and Shepard, running
over two days, during which ninety-
two ballots were haa, Giddings, of
Washington, was nominated. Without
touching upon the policy of renomi-
nating Hancock, we may say, that the
nomination will give general satisfac-
tion, and Giddings will undoubtedly
be elected, though it may be no mere
"walk over," as in this District.
The Leon Cabinet having said " Sher-
idan has too much respect for Sitting
Bull to go and whip him," the Calvert
Sentinel adds: "The trouble is that be-
tween the two horns, the Big Horn and
the Little Ilorn, he don't know where
to take hold of the Bull." That tale
will not do. When forced into a dilem-
ma, either horn will serve.
The trial of S. A. Doran for the mur-
der of Charlie Patman, in Denison, was
entered into last Monday. Of the spe-
cial venire of sixty men summoned,
only six competent jurors could be pro-
cured. Another venire was directed to
be summoned, and the court adjourned
to Tuesday morning. On the next day
defendant's counsel made the point that
a new jury law had been passed and ap-
proved, taking effect from passage, and
that the present jury was incompetent
to try defendant. The State and de-
fendant then withdrew their announce-
ments, and the case was continued by
consent to the next term.
The Sherman Register says:
The jury bill passed by the present
Legislature, and now in force, is said to
be the most fearfully and wonderfully
complicated and aggravatingly incom-
prehensible piece of legislative mechan-
ism ever borne into the world. The
only wonder is how it ever came to be
delivered without a ciesarian opera-
tion. An interpretation or translation
is indispensable to its successful opera-
No doubt the law is susceptible of
easy interpretation. The trouble with
Texas laws is that about the time peo-
ple begin to understand them they are
repealed or so changed that it is neces-
sary to begin the extensive study anew.
The Hempstead Courier says:
Judging from the tone of the press,
the new jury law will be popular. It
is necessary to be able to read and
write to be a qualified juror. The ob-
ject of courts being to administer just-
ice according to law, and juries being
an important adjunct in its administra-
tion, we never could understand why
this sworn duty should be exacted of
men notoriously incompetent to the
correct performance of the task. Jury
duty carries with it neither honor nor
profit. It is a duty, and sometimes a
burdensome one. So is road-working
and tax paying, with which we heard

The Hempstead Courier condemns
the attempt to conceal the prevalence of
crime, and says:

citizens and officials to bring criminals

mount authority and that their efficiency
must and will be vindicated.
The most common reply of the aver-
age newspaper to the comments of a

mucilated by the press."

the Sheriff bill. After which Captain
John Henderson introduced and sup-
ported, by able and eloquent reasoning,
the following resolutions: "Whereas
the Galveston News, in its issue of tie
2d instant, in an editorial headed 'An
Executive Marplot,' and in subsequent
editorials, has seen tit to censure and
arraign Gov. Coke for his veto of the
Slieriif bill and other measures; there-
fore lie it resolved—1. That while we
hold sacred the freedom of the press,
and that it is its duty on all proper oc-
casions to vindicate the rights of the
people, and to uphold law and order,
yet on this occasion we deprecate the
action of the News because of its
asperity and unreasoning censure.
2. That in his executive veto of said bill
and the reasons assigned, we heartily
commend and indorse the action of our
Governor; he has thereby pointed out
the true course which legislation should
take on this subject, and has sho#n
himself the champion of free govern-
ment and the friend of liberty." An

lie in Kerr county, gives the following
gracefully written description of the
rugged region: "If we reckon the
height of these mountains from the in-
tervening valleys, they rank only as
hills, but when the general elevation of
the country is considered, we find an
altitude of nearly four thousand feet,
or about three-quarters of a mile, which
makes a notable difference in the cli-
mate. The air is nearly always cool
and bracing, the nights almost cold.
The mountains are green with a cover-
ing of grass and trees, and what gives a
very refreshing appearance to the near
scenery are the grape vines, which lite-
rally clotUe the hillsides and hang about
the cliffs, clustered with fruit that does
not mock with false appearance, for the
sweet grape of the mountains lias no
superior. In a day's journey your horse
will not step but his hoof will clatter on
stone. The valleys follow each other
without intermission in whatever di-
rection you go; deep and rugged val-
leys which descend rapidly into wild
ravines and canons, overhung with
frowning cliffs. Down in these are the
most beautiful springs of clear and
cool water gushing over the rocks and
rippling over the pebbles. There are
small plats of good land in some of
these ravines; the mountaineers have
built their cabins and turned the spring
(for there is always a spring at their
houses) to water the little fields. We
started deer out of almost every valley,
and occasionally a bear went growling
into the grape thickets. We clambered
along the cliffs in search of bee caves,
and explored several curious caverns of
great size hung with glittering stalac
tites. It is needless to say we feasted
on venison and honey. These rough
mountains will always remain a wil
derness, a kind of reserve of nature; a
public game preserve. They are acces
sible from all the lower country by pri-
vate conveyance and at trifling cost.
Any man who can own a two-horse
spring wagon can visit this country
with his family and spend a month or
two in the mountains in a cool and
'Far from the mad'ning crowd's ignoble
enlivened,by some of the noblett scene-
ry in the world and return renovated
in health and spirits."
The Giddings Tribune says new cot-
ton is daily arriving, and our tewn is
already beginning to present a business-
like appearance... .Our town and some
portions of our county has been visited
with some fine rains during the week,
which was of great benefit to the cotton
crop, as the continued heat was causing
the squares to shed... .Dave Thomp-
son, charged with having stolen a horse
in this (Lee) county, has been arrested
and lodged in the Hamilton county jail.
The crowd begins to disperse from
the throng... .The drouth still con
tinues. Notwithstanding it has been
wet below here, our country is parched
so that stock water is confined to the
larger streams, and very many families
have to haul their drinking water sev-
eral miles. The grass is dry and vege-
tables are all gone.
The negro who killed the two Mrs.
Cains, in Llano last week, was cap-
tured, his bloody clothes found, and he
taken to jail. That night the citizens,
tliirty-five in number, went to the jail
and took him out and hung him in the
public square... .Mining operations are
going on in various parts of the county,
but precisely what they have out, quien
A circus is working its winding way
to Waco, and it is hoped that the col-
ored population will pick cotton enough
to pay for tickets. The show will
break them, and they will have to go to
work again after it leaves. A eircys
has its uses after all.
Polk county has the finest crop this
year she has had since the war. Corn
abundant. Cotton prospect very fine.
Sugar-cane, tobacco and potatoes splen
did, and the Narrow Gauge Railroad
about to pass centrally through the
county. Now is the time for immi
grants to settle in Polk; provisions
abundant; the finest lands to be bought
at low figures; water, health and schools
all good. Many of our farmers are
raising fine hogs." Why does not some
enterprising capitalist in Houston or
Galveston engage fn the manufacture of
tobacco? This whole section produces
a very fine article of tobacco, but the
heavy tax prevents farmers from man
ufacturing it. A factory in either of
these cities would be supplied abund
antly with a fine article of tobacco in
the hand On the night of the 10th
inst., at Swartwout, Bob Peters was as-
sassinated by some person unknown.
Some of the neighbors heard him ex-
claim as the gun fired, "O, Lord!
and upon going to the place found him
dead. Shot well, the deputy sheriff
of the county, and Epperson, consta-
ble, have gone to Swartwout to the in-
quest, and to get on track of the assas-
palo pinto county.
This county is well adapted for farm-
ing and stock-raising combined. Pro-
ducts—cotton, corn and small grain.
Average yield per acre—cotton, one-
half bale; corn, 40 bushels; wheat, 20
bushels; oats, 50 bushels. Improved
lands range in price from $3 to $10 per
acre, unimproved at from $2 to $7 per
acre Population of county, about
4000; population of Palo Pinto town,
about 400 The Brazos river and nu-
merous bold streams pass through this
county. General surface rolling, in
some places quite rough—hills covered
with cedar; however, there are many
fine valleys of good land in the county,
and excellent pasturage on the high
This county continues to grow in
population and wealth. It is situated
in latitude 32£ degrees; county seat
Weatherford; area 900 square miles;
population 13,000. The Brazos river
and numerous streams, tributaries of
the Brazos and Trinity rivers, run
through the county, timber abundant,
and fine building and lime stone, also
coal indications. The common product s
consist of cotton, corn, and all the
small grains. Average yield per acre:
cotton } bale, corn 40 bushels, wheat
25 bushels, oats 50 bushels. Patented
improved iands can be bought at from
$5 to $20 per acre; unimproved at from
$2 to 10. Weatherford has about
fifteen thousand inhabitants, four
churches, two steam mills, etc

The sixteen-mile belt, or reservation,
granted by the State to the Memphis,
El Paso and Pacific Railway Company,
passes through this county, and in it
are embraced some of her choicest lands.
By virtue of an act of the Legislature,
the alternate, or rather the even sec-
tions, in this belt, are now offered for
sale by the State to actual settlers, at
the minimum price of $1 50 per acre.
The applicant is required to purchase
not less than 100 acres, and to pay for
the same within ten years, in annual in-

There are in operation in the county
eighteen cotton gins, eight steam flour-
ing mills, three steam saw mills, two
carding machines, and one furniture
manufactory with complete machinery.
... .Coal has recently been discovered
in this county about eight miles from
Weatherford, which is said to be of an
excellent quality, and supposed to exist
in large quantities.

Military Post, situated on the Clear
Fork of the Brazos, was located in
1807, on account of Indian depreda-

ceased to annoy the frontier, but the

advantages, conceded to be equal, if not
superior, to those of any county in the
Northwestern portion of the State. The
soil is nearly all good, plenty of ti mber
and water, also building stone and coal.
Products are cotton, corn and small

The advent of the iron horse has
worked wonders at Worth. Everybody
is coming. The hotels are crowded.
New hotels and business houses going
up every day, to say nothing of the resi
dences and other improvements. More
than fifty-four car loads of lumber ar-
rived in town on Sunday, and an aver-
age of twenty car loads a day are to ar
rive this week. Quite a number of
large brick buildings are in process of
construction near the depot... .Fort
Worth rejoices in the possession of
more saloons than any other city of its
size in North Texas.
The town of Decatur has grown dur
ing the last three months, several new
substantial houses having been put up
in that time, and many others in course
of construction, all of them good build-
ings. Terrill's large stone store is about
completed. ... Business is good, and we
hear several new business houses are to
be opened here soon... .We have taken
some pains to learn all we could about
crop prospects, and find that the wheat
crop will be a fair average, but not as
good as last year; oats not below the
average; cotton a good average, and
corn considerably above the average.
Cotton picking has commenced and
a demand for hands exists Last
week new corn sold at twenty-five cents
per bushel Wheat threshing is near-
ly completed and the acreage has turned
out some bettter than expected... .The
first bale of new cotton was brought to
Georgetown on Wednesday, raised and
ginned by A. Newlin.
Accommodation train No. 5, west,
Tuesday ran over and killed a negro
named Harrison Goff, near Minneola.
It was going down a grade and broke
in two. The engines and three cars
passed a gang of section men and Goff
(one of the section men) stepped on the
track and the rear end of the train,
consisting of twelve cars, passed over
him, cutting him in two. The other
men hollooed at him, but he either did
not hear them, or was reckless enough
to attempt to get across the track be
fore the hind car came up. His mother
lives at Longvicw, whither the railway
officials had his body taken for inter-
Four thousand six hundred dollars of
county scrip was destroyed last Tues
day by the Commissioners' Court....
The cotton worm is doing his work
surely. Some parties have applied
poison, and those who commenced
early will save their cotton from de
struction... .The almost daily rains for
more than two weeks past, have had a
damaging effect on the cotton crop of
our county. For two weeks before the
rains set in, nearly all the blooms that
appeared where shed off, in conse-
quence of the drouth and the intense
heat. All the farmers with whom we
have conversed on the subject are unani-
mous in the opinion that cotton will
fall very far short of what it promised
five or six weeks ago.
Indian Raid—Democratic Conven-
Mason, Aug. 16, 1876.
Eds. News—As might be expected,
the Indians from the reservation, on
hearing of the defeat of Custer, are on
the war path again.
On the 14th a large body of them
passed in the vicinity of Menardville,
taking thirty-five head of horses from
there, and on the road, some seven
miles thence, they killed two colored
men. They were closely pursued by
some of the inhabitants of Menardville,
headed by W. P. Lancaster and the
Ellis boys, who caught up with them
about Wilkinson's Crossing of the San
Saba, and forced them to drop the
stolen horses. A few shots were ex-
changed, but owing to the played-out
condition of the citizens' horses, pur-
suit further was impossible.
At the same time Lieut. Roberts and
his gallant company were hotly in pur-
suit of another party of Indians to-
wards the Saline, with what result is
not as yet known. So it goes with a
general government unable or culpably
unwilling to protect its frontier, and a
Legislature determined to save every-
thing except the State and ifs citizens,
who are left to protect themselves or go
unprotected. We may look forward to
many bloodly incursions by Comanche
and Kiowa this coming fall.
The County Democratic Convention
meets on tie 19th to choos; delegates lo
the Congressional District Convention,
and from the feeling of the people I
have no doubt that tl e delegates will
be instructed to vote for Gustave
Schleicher, our present a'»le representa-
tive, which is as it should be, and the
present brilliant galaxy of statesmen
which Texas has in the United States
Congress should remain unbroken.
According to some, however, the
parable should read, " Well done, thou
good and faithful servi nt." Get out of
here, and I'll put in an untried man,
taking the chances whether he will
serve me well or not; that he has the
ability or experience lliat you have I
don't believe, or that he can do us as
much good by his weight of person; 1
inflneuce; but still, he is a new man,
and in he goes, whether or no. This
appears to be the feeling in an adjoining
district as regards John Hancock; why,
it is hard to say, for no man has de
served better of the State than Mr. II.
Always in his place, always working
for our best interests, fearless always
in advocating the cause of the South,
it is a singular phase of the human
mind to turn away from such a man as
this to one who, though doubtless a
good man, certainly has not the expe-
rience, and most likely not the ability,
to serve the State so well. Every Rep-
resentative Texas has should go back,
for certainly no State is so ably repre-
sented; and, choose we never so wisely,
we can not obtain better servants. H.

possible to make now. the Cherokees
will raise this year over one million
bushels of corn.
