and S. F. K R. Company.
Pursuant to the call for that purpose, the
stockholders of the Gulf, Colorado acd Santa
Fe Railroad Company met at the office of the
company, at 12 o'clock m. yesterday, and pro-
ceeded to the election of thirteen directors,
to serve from the present time until the first
Tuesday in October, 1878.
The meeting was called to order by Mr. Ro-
senberg, who said the meeting was in accord-
ance with an advertisement which had ap-
peared in the papers, and was for the purpose
of electing thirteen director* of the G., C. and
S. F. R. R. Co. He was glad to know that the
recent issues had been so amicably adjusted,
and he hoped that great good would result
from the agreement that had been entered
into with the county commissioners. He
nominated Col. W. L Moody as president. On
motion he was elected. Mr. Sorley nominated
Mr. C. C Allen secretary. Elected.
On taking the chair Col. Moody in a few re-
marks reviewed the agreement made in the
County Commissioners Court, and said that
there was nothing now in the way of a satis-
factory solution of the differences that had
recently interfered with the success of the en-
terprise, which it was the aim of the stock-
holders present to foster and encourage.
The secretary was instructed to call the
roll and a quorum announced as present.
The agreement between the county com-
mig.ioners and the committee of stockholders
appointed to confer with them, was read.
Col. Moody explained that the agreement
was in pursuance of instructions delegated to
the committee appointed by the stockholders
to confer with the County Court.
Mr. 'Willis moved that the agreement be
spread upon the minutes. Carried.
Mr. Koppejljaoved that the election be pro-
ceeded witET Carried.
The chair appointed Col. George P. Finlay
and Jas. M Heislceil as tellers.

pleted, the tellers made up their count, with

and Santa Fe Railway Company for the en-
'thereupon the meeting adjourned.
Grand Annual Ball.
Island City Fire Company No. 2 gave their
annual ball last night at Turner Hall. It was
a grand success. The hall was beautifully
decorated with flags of ail nations. On tbe
stage was a pedestal, on which stood a bronze
eagle, holding in its mouth two streamers,
with the company's motto, "We strive to
save " The decoration was the work of Wm.
Hamilton. The ball was a perfect success.
The hall was crowded with attractive young
ladies, and all seemed to be enjoying them-
selves, the fire boys especially, as every-
body knows they are in for enjoyment. Dare-
ing was kept up until the wee sma' hours,
when they all sought their homes, well pleased
with their night's frolic, to awake in the morn-
ing and discuss their night's enjoyment. It
is hoped that the fire boys will have as grand
a success at thei" next annual ball as they had
at this. A fine supperwas served by Mr. Geo.
Paget. The following were the committees:
Arrangement Committee—J. A. Homer, John
Dean and Chas. Westerlage. Floor Commit-
tee: John Dean.O. H.Mercer, J. Foster,Thos.

Change of Front.
The fact is that Capt. J. C. Gorham
still adheres to his determination to
abandon mercantile pursuits and go to
farming and stock-raising, but while
he is selling out for cash at lower
prices than the same goods or articles
can be bought for anywhere in the
South, he is not retailing his stock for
Texas lands. He is, however, pre-
pared to sell buggies and wagons, ma-
chine and hand-made harness of all de-
scriptions, at such figures as will com-
pel those who price the goods and need
them to buy them. His stock of sad
dies, suited to the Texas trade, is not
excelled anywhere, and his assortment
of vehicles—from a baby carriage to a
barouche or farm wagon—can not be
duplicated at the figures he is now
selling them. Take advantage of Capt.
Gorham's contemplated " change of
front " and secure bargains.

Many valuable discoveries and much
useful knowledge is kept from the
world, because of the immense ex-
pense in making them known to the
people. This is mot the case with Bos

few years introduced into this country
its sale now reaches in every town and
village in the United States. Its won-
derful success in curing Consumption,
severe Coughs, Pneumonia, Asthma
and all other diseases of the throat and
luDgs, was first made known by dis
tributing every year, for three years,
over 400,000 bottles to the afHictea, free
of charge, by druggists. No such
test of merit was ever given before to
any other preparation. Could you ask
more? Go to your druggist and get a

of interest that the undersigned has read the
var'ous sentiments on the subject of re-
trenchment. lately expressed through your
columns. But while many of them seem com-
mendable, I beg leave to protest against a
few. " Citizen " would have all salaries re-
duced to a minimum, and many offices re-
duced into one. Now, it is not a bad idea to
consolidate offices when the same can be done
satisfactorily and practically, and when the
charter so allows. But as to the reduction of
salaries, the idea I do not believe is a wise
one. The bane of our country is cor-
rupt officials and meager salareif. Cheap
wages and cheap men go hand in hand.
Why the defalcations, short accounts, blotch-
ed jobs and rotten contracts that are being
read of every day? Why the jail breaking,
and evasions, and other results of bribery so
prevalent in this State? I will answer: be-
cause of cheap wages or salaries. Cheap men
are irresponsible men. Would Citizen se-
lect tbe cheapest coat or article of food for
his own use? Undoubtedly not; as the same,
in the lo g run. would prove the most expen-
sive Just so with cheap men. They are apt
to, and as a rule do bflcome the most expen-
sive in the end. "Penny wise and pound
foolish" has a strong bearing on this ques-
tion which, it is hoped, our City Fathers will
duly consider when they fix the salaries of
our officers for the next y»»r.
As to the association miscalled the tax-
payers " while some of their ideas are good
in the abstract, they are doing the city a con-
siderable amount of injury by setting a bad
example to tbe well-disposed and real tax-
naving citizens. Their advice as to municipal
reform on this account, should receive but
little notice. Your correspondent of the 14ih
makes some capital suggestions, but he does
not cover the case. "Judicious economy" and
"rigid collection of taxes" will, however, and
to these, and not " starvation salaries," must
we look for prosperity. Not a foolish economy
do I mean, which is really extravagance, nor
a loose system of garnering the city's
dues, but as stated before, a judicious
discretion in the one, and a rigid enforce-
ment of tbe other. A vigilant and efficient
police and a flrst-class sanitary department
should be maintained at any rate, for the
life of our citizens comes just one step
ahead of their property. If each tax-payer
will promptly comply with his duties as a citi-
zen, and meet his obligations to the city as
the law requires, there will be no need for
"increased taxation" and "rigid economy."
The aldermen should look to defaulters to keep
up the budget, for if they only collect what is
due to the city there would be no complaints
to be heard in the future. TAX-PAYER.
Children at the Matinee.
Galveston, Dec. 15, 1877.
Eds. News—In your paper of Wednesday
a letter appears signed " Anxious Mother," to
which I beg a few lints of your valuable space
to reply; and first of all, I beg most respect
fully to inform "Anxious Mother" that she is
in error, as I have never ordered any one out
of the Opera House up to this present time. I
shall again, if the occasion requires, invite
"Anxious Mother," with her good-natured
child, to retire to the lobby and remain until
the little darling has recovered i;s eood tem-
per. Evidently, however, this child oomes
honestly by its ill nature, as a good deal of it
is evinced In the letter of last Wednesday. It
has been and shall be my aim to make the
matinee performances pleasant to ladies and
children (not children In arms). Matinee per-
formances are for Bchool children and ladies
Last Saturday, at the Lingard matinee, be-
tween four and five hundred adults and be-
tween one and two hundred children witnessed
the performance of the Hunchback, and it
was an impossibility for me to allow tbe per-
formance to be spoiled by one or two good-
natured children. I trust that this will ex
plain matters, and what governs my actions
in regard to matinee performances, and that
from now on children in arms must be a little
better tempered than that of " Anxious Moth-
er's," or they must remain at home.

and left for Austin Tuesday morning last, to
bring the prisoners now confined in the jail at
Austin to this place for trial. The jail now
building here will probably be completed for
the occupation of prisoners within a month,
as the contractors have now sufficient stone
to finish the structure. It is a fine looking
building, strong and well built, and will no
doubt answer the purpose in every particular,
and save the county the expense of sending
prisoners off to other points for safe keeping.

Texas after disposing of the goods. A de-

Yesterday was one of the liveliest days in
business circles that we have had for a long
time. Trade in the groceries and dry goods
stores was very brisk, and merchants and em-
ployes had all they could attend to. Some of
tha houses turned out large quantities of
goods. The jobbing trade was especially
lively. About seven hundred bales of cotton
were on the square yesterday. This was the
largest number for any one day during the
present season. The number has generally
varied from three hundred to six hundred
bales. Seven hundred bales of cotton repre-
sent a cash value of over $30,000. Our friends
abroad can have some idea how much money
is paid into the hands of the farmers, who, as
soon as they get it, spend a large portion, if
not most of it, in laying in supplies for
the future. Trade is stimulatsd, money
is put in circulation, and the stag-
nation that weighs down business in
other portions of the country is not felt here.

quantities of wheat are being sown every-
where. If rext'season is favoraole, Texas will
not only raise enough for home consumption,
but will have hundreds of thousands of bush-
els for export. Ic is conceded that it pays bet-
ter than cotton, and with tbe assistance of the
labor-saving machines is not half the trouble
and expense to raise.
San Saba News: The town of Llano has im-
i jroved a great deal within the last year or
;wo, though just now there seems to be a lull
in the way of building—The financial con-
dition of the county is good, aad it is said by
;ood authority that when all the outstanding
lunds are collected, allowing one-third not
collectable, and all the indebtedness paid, the
county will have a surplus fund of at least
$2000. Affairs generally in the county are
well regulated, there being no disturbances of
the peace or otherwise not come-at-ab'e by
the local authorities. There is much natural
wealth in the county. At the county site
there is one of the best situations for a mill
or factory,which could be propelled by water,
of any place in the country. The water power
at this point is ample, and the increase of the
grain or wool productions of this section
would warrant the building of either a firstc ass
flouring mill or woolen factory, or even both.
Tha natural pasturage of the county is excel-
lent, and good opportunities exist within its
limits for stock-raising—The mine of Dr.
Smith, situated about a half mile east of town,
is being worked. The doctor has prosecuted
his claim for many months, and has followed
a mineral-bearing lead of vein quartz at an
angle of about forty-five degrees to a distance
of sixty-five feet—this will make the location
of the depth of the mine about forty-eight
feet from tbe surface, at a perpendicular. A
large quantity of ore has already been taken
out, which, it is thought, will prove valuable.
The Johns and Haynie mine is also being
worked. A public well is being sunk at ihe
expense of the county near tbe center of the
square, which is now to a depth of over sixty-
five feet, and the contractor, Mr. J. H. Wil-
liams, says the evidence of silver ore is so
strong that he fears water will never be
found, as the county authorities will most
likely strike off on a mineral lead. At any
rate this well is located near the great mine-
ral lead, which can be distinctly traced for
twenty miles, and upon which the mine of Dr.
Smith is located.
Groesbefck Sun: Tramps—for about two
weeks past our town has been visited by a
continuous chain of these ubiquitous impost-
ers upon good nature, begging from door to
door for something to eat The area of tbe
county is about 900 square miles, about one-
fourth of which is timbered land and three
fourths prairie. Of this land there is not ex-
ceeding one-thirteenth part under cultivation,
although nine-tenths of the whole is suscepti-
ble of producing all the agricultural and hor-
ticultural growths known to this latitude. The
population of the county is about 12,0> 0, or
nearly one square mile to the soul; and of
this the negro element will not exceed 2000.
This county is well watered, and there is an
abundance of timber for all necessary pur-
purposes. The p-airle lands are all of a fine
alluvial soil, with a sufficient intermixture of
black turf to make them susceptible of the
highest state of cultivation. The olimate is
mild, and being above the malarial belt that
extends along the seaboard from fifty to a
hundred miles above the coast, our people
are largely exempted from those intermittent
and remittent fevers so common in >hose
miasmatic districts. The county is well sup-
plied with primary schools, and at Tehuacana
Hills we have Trinity University, under the
management of Prof. W. E. Beeson, which
will rank with any instiution of learning in
the South. Church edifices are being built in
every settlement, and there is probably
no county in the State that is advancing more
rapidly toward a higher moral culture and a
greater degree of social intercourse.

Assaults.—Thomas P. Hennessey having
had some misunderstanding with Mr. John
Hamilton, met the latter on the street in Fifth
Ward, and delibera' ely struck him over the
head with a six-shooter or piece of iron
Hamilton did not know which.
Mr. R. M. Hutchins is stated by Mr. John
H. Mejer to have assaulted the latter in the
market yesterday morning with a stick, and
afterward drew upon him a double-barreled
deringor, but did not shoot. Hutchins was
arrested, and gave bond for appearance.
Justice Brashear has sent the matter before
the grand jury.
Suicide.—At 4 o'clock yesterday (Saturday)
morning Barnard Owens suicided at the end
of the market, near tbe Kennedy building,
corner Congress and Travis, by cutting his
throat. An inquest was held by Justice Henry
Brashear, acting coroner, and tbe sworn testi-
mony of Edward Stearns, John Castajne and
Dr. Rutherford tskea. A few minutes before
the affair Stearns saw Owens either fall or sit
down on the awning in front of the building
and then roll off it into the street below, in the
fall receiving a i evere cut on the crown of the
head. He seems to have walked across the
street into the market and in front of the
meat stall of Mr. Sam Geiselman. cut his
throat. The knife severed the external jugu
lar vein and carotid artery, causing death in a
few minutes. When Cassagne saw the man
was cut he blew his whistle for the police and
the body was taken to a room in the second
story of the Kennedy building.
The deceased was a native of County Down,
Ireland; left a wife in Glasgow, Scotland;
emigrated to this country 5 years ago; and
for three years has been the confidential busi-
ness man of Mr. John Kennedy, of Houston.
He never drank, belonged to a Catholic Tem-
Eerance Society, and on the evening previous
ad exhibited unmistakable symptoms of in-
sanity, telling Mr. James Delaney he had seen
Jesus Christ personally with a chalice in his
rigbt hand. He requested Delaney to
take a charm he wore on his person and scare
off the devil, who, he said, had been peering
in at him through the curtains The deceased
was a soldier in the army of Pope Pius IX in

with him a Pope's medal commomorative of
his services in the campaign that ended in
the downfall of the papal temporal power.

An Indian'* Report of a Flat Fight.
[From the Virginia City Enterprise !
Two Cornishmen who had some dif-
ficulty to settle, repaired to the slum
reservoir below the old Hooaier State
Mills, with a few friends to see fair
play, and there "had it out." It was
at the old reservoir, where the Indians
sometimes play football—a nice, level,
soft spot. Being out of reach of the
police, the parties had all the fun to
themselves, and a fin# social time they
had of it, till the capacity for its enjoy-
ment failed one of the principals. An
Indian who witnessed the battle from
afar was greatly delighted with the ex-
hibition. He was full of the battle
even when we met him—hours after it
was over. Said he: "Woob! me see
two men heap pight um!" He then
shut his eyes, bowed his head upon his
breast, and struck out t:lindly for half
a minute. Then he straightened up,
tossed his long hair back over his head,
and remarked: "Wooh! Tou bet!"
He then began poking out and drawing
in his "right" and "left" alternately,
representing cautious SDarring, but
suddenly clapped his hand to his left
eye; and said: " Ugh!" Next he made
one or two lunges with his "right,"
still keeping hiB left hand over his eye,
gave another "UghI" removed his
hand to the end of his nose, and i eeled
about quite groggily. While he was in
the act of blowing his nose, he got a
lick in his right eye which called forth
a prolonged grunt, and this, according
to the i'iute pantomimic report of the
affair, ended the fight, as he pawed the
air for a moment, threw his head back,
and "went to grass."

Saturday Evening. Dec. 16, 1877.
There was some diminution in the volume
of trade to-day, but the contraction was con
fined to staples, and toys, notions, fruit and
confections, and holiday supplies were in de
mand on orders and by buyers on the spot.
Apples are higher, and a car-load of choice
sold to-day at $4 75 per bbL
In the cotton market a decline of was
quoted. The large receipts for last week and
a large total for all ports again to day, out
weighed the still very visible deficit
in the world's supply, and a con-
tinuance of good trade reports,
general belief prevails that this and next
week's total will be large, and prophe's are
not wanting " on 'ChaDge " to express the be
lief that the aggregate deficiency in the total
receipts at all ports thus far this season,
which now amounts to about 350,000 bales,
will not be more than 150,000 bales by tbe 1st
Ia the hide market prices will show a de
cline of a cent on dry salted and wet salted.
Dry flint remain unchanged. Buyers state
that to-day's telegrams report general dissat-
isfaction; among tanners with the result of
their operations with dry salted stock; hence
they refuse them at present prices—and wet
salted partake of the decline.
There is some demand for wool, and sales
were reported to-day of above three thou*
sand pounds at 25c. for fine fall c'ip, light
and free of burs.
Oats are weak and the stock is large. Corn
also is weak and the stock ample.
Sugars were quiet to-day but prices are
steady. Molasses is dull and unchanged.
