The Ilillsboro Bee undertakes to si-
lence the complaints against the Sunday
law by saying:
Talk about the rigor of our Sunday law.
In North Carolina there is a Sunday law
on the statute books which provides tnat
all persons having no reasonable or lawiui
excuse, shall attend some religious meet-
ing every Sunday.
The tar-heels, however, pay no atten-
tion to this remnant of religious intole-
rance. Slany other states have old ob-
solete Sunday laws on their statute
books which never were fully enforced,
and have been disregarded and forgotten
for years. The present spasmodic agi
tation of the Sunday question is only a
revival of an old issue which has long
pinee been practically settled in this
country. It will require but a short
time for the zeal of the agitators to cool,
and then things will fall back again into
the old groove.
The Castroville Quill states that 5Ir.
Schiedemantel, for reasons to himself
known and felt, resigned his position as
county clerk last Monday, and the re-
signation was accepted. Before the
county commissioners had time to decide
between the hosts of applicants for the
place, the resignation was withdrawn,
but in the meantime it had been accepted.
The commissioners should not have been
bo prompt. Cffisar was urged to take
the crown no less than three time. But
the Castroville commissioners are of the
hair-trigger kind; take things literally
and act accordingly. The Quill says:
Just before the adjournment of the reg-
ular session of the commissioners court,
Saturday niglit, Mr. Hlater tendered his
resignation as justice of the Castroville
vrecinot, which resignation was accepted.
Monilay morning, when the extra session
convened, V. Haas. Esq., was appointed
to the vacancy, and made his bond at once.

position, collectively, there is not as much
manhood as exists in Veal's little finger.
The Henderson Times takes a mode-
rate view of the new Sunday law, say-
We hear no complaint among our people
en the subject: on the contrary, it seems
that it is commended very highly by all
elases. There is no doubt that its results
have been very good with us. It may be
noticed by any one who will, that our
streets on Sunday wear a more peaceful
aspect now than before the law went into
operation. "VVe see no collection of disor-
derly crowds obstructing the street cor-
ners ; and altogether we like the effects of its
operation. Still, we can not say that we
believe it sound policy to legislate a coun-
try into morality.
The Tyler Courier wnnts to go the
whole figure—six days work and one
day's rest. It says:
"While the legislature was passing a law
to compel meu to rest one day in each week
it might have, with n show of consistency,
passed a law compelling all men to work
the remaining six in the week.
The Courier is proud of the Texas

The Lampasas Dispatch says of the
deaf and dumb asylum:
It seems to be understood that the posi-
tion of superintendent of this institution is
to be taken from one who has been pro-
nounced unfitted and incompetent, and to
be given to another, who has had no oppor-
tunity by education, training or experience
to become better suited for I he place than
the one to be removed. CI en. MeCulloeh
would be fully as acceptable to the people
of the state as Col. Ford. Neither of them
could communicate with a deaf and dumb
man if a house was on fire, and to remove
one for incompetency to make room for
another of the same stripe would be the
greatest foolishness. The unfortunate
children of Texas who are sent to that
place for their education and training
Should be furnished with one educated in
such a manner as to teach t hem. Give
these political fellows a political position,
but let the charitable institutions of the
state be presided over by those who are

The Sulphur Springs Gazette tells how
the Sunday law works in Hopkins
The Sunday law is working a hardship
In some cases. Two Sundays ago one of
our physicians wanted some blackberry
Cordial for a sick child. The druggist re-
fused to sell. On last Sunday the same
physician wanted some ice for a lady who
was very sick. Judge Putrnan drew an
order, stating that the ice was for medical
purposes and necessary for the sick lady—
the physician signed it. The ice could not
be bought. Mr. Hunsucker gave it, or the
good lady would have suffered for the want
Of it. In the evening the same physician
was called to see a sick child whose"father
and mother were passing through town in
awagor. In giving directions "as to diet,
etc., the doctor advised the father to get
some crackers. He went to a family gro-
cery, and the merchant said: "1 can't
Bell them, but will give you some." This
may be tne letter, but surely it is not the
spirit and intention of the law. If it is so,
our legislators have gone too far. and the
next legislature will repeal the law. Then
Wo will drift to the other extreme.

merchants and gin men are fully pre-
pared to handle this year's crop. Sever-
al steam gins have been erected this
year, and there are now 8 steam eins in
the county, several of them runntngtwo

Koftsinger, the defendant, and Lewis
line were rival suitors for the hand
of Miss Helen Kimbrough. She broke
her engagement with Koftsinger in
March. 1878, and on the fourth day of
July following married Kline. On the
night of the 7th of August, 1878, while
Kline and his wife were asleep on a
mattrass spread on the floor of the porch
to their residence, some person shot the
top of his skull off. Noftsinger
told Barns, a friend of his, early on the
night of the T illing that he was going

convicted the accused.

Antonio. The town's population is
about 2500. The C. C., S. D. and R.
G railroad, is now within three miles
of San Diego. The prosperity of the
county is attributed mainly to the sheep-
men and their numerous flocks.
Inquirer: It is simply wonderful
what a change the face of nature pre-
sents since~the rains. Vegetation had
the appearance of having been withered
by the scorching breath of a simoon,
and the yawning crevasses in the dry
and thirsty earth, surrounded by the
stunted, blighted shrubbery, reminded
one of the site of Sodom and Gomorrah
after their destruction by fire and brim-
stone. The transmogrification could not
have been more complete if some fairy
queen from eltland had waved her magic
wand over the earth, when, presto!
green grass and flowers spring up by
magic. Gardens planted since the rains
are coming up and growing rapidly.

Dallas, Aug. 22.—The grand lodge
of the knights of honor of the state of
Texas held its second annual session on
the 19th, 20th and 21st inst., in the ele-
gant new hall of Coeur de Lion lodge,
knights of pythias. The officers of the
lodge—grand dictator B. F. Frymier, of
Crockett; grand vice-dictator W. J. W.
Kerr, of Corsicana; grand assistant dic-
tator J. M. Randolph, of Cameron;
grand chaplain John A. Boone, of Rusk;
grand reporter William P. Cole, of
Hempstead; grand treasurer J. B. Wolf,
of Rockdale; grand guide J. R. Ruther-
ford, of Mineola; grand guardian Tlios.
Q. Mullin, of La Grange—and 112 past
dictators, representing 75 lodges, were
organization of the order.
The brotherhood is of comparatively
recent origin. Mr. J. A. Demaree, of
Louisville. Ky., conceived in the early
spring of 1878 the idea of forming "a
new secret order and selected as its
name '' The independent order knights
of honor." A meeting was called for
the 30th of June, 1873," at which about
seventeen gentlemen were present,
among whom was Mr. D. Wilson, now
of Boston. A week afterward a plan
of organization was submitted by Mr.
Wilson and adopted, when the officers

objects of the corporation
are to unite fraternally all acceptable
white men of every profession, business
and occupation; to give all possible
moral and material aid in its power to
its members and those depending on its
members, by holding moral, instructive
and scientific lectures, by encouraging
each other in business, and by assisting
each other to obtain employment; to
promote benevolence and charity by
establishing a widows' and orphans'
benefit fund, from which on the satis-
factory evidence of the death of a mem-
ber, a sum not exceeding two thousand
dollars shall be paid to his family, or as
he may direct; to provide for creating a
fund for the relief of sick and distressed
members; and to ameliorate the condi-
tion of humanity in every possible man-
remarkable growth of the bro-
The growth of the order was gradual
until three years ago. when the member-
ship commenced augmenting by thou-
sands instead of hundreds. On the first
of January last there were 51,258 mem-
bers, and on May first, according to the
report of the supreme dictator, 57,000.
At the organization of the grand lodge
of Texas, less than two years ago, there
were in the state thirty lodges with a
membership of 376: at the close of the
first term fifty-five lodges and 1281
members, and on the third Tuesday of
the current mouth the number of lodges
had increased to 97 and the membership
swollen to 3000.
widows and orphans fund.
The supreme lodge paid out, up to
March 10, to widows and orphans, the
sum of $1,436,093 65, in consequence of
deaths as follows: 2 in 1874, 13 iu 1875.
59 in 1876, 116 in 1877, 471 in 1878, and
61 in 1879, up to the 10th of last March.
The large number of deaths in 1878 was
owing to the yellow fever. The order
in Texas, from July 1, 1878, to August
1, 1879, lost fifteen members by deaths,
requiring the distribution of $30,0 .0.
The list of deaths include the name of
C. O. SoRelle, who was a representative
to the grand lodge at its organization,
and one of its charter members. The
financial condition of the grand lodge
of Texas at the close of its first annual
session, showed an excess of liabilities
over resources of $756 23, but at the
close of the second session, ending Au-
gust 5, 1879, a surplus of $2,349 18 of
assets over liabilities.

State grand dictator B. F. Frymier,
referring to the yellow fever epidemic,
says in his report:
"The terrible scourge which visit-
ed the south during the past year
has demonstrated to us that the beauti-
ful lessons of our ritual are not taught
in vain. It was a time when the stout
hearts of noble men were made to quiver;
yet when the distress call was sounded
all stood ready to respond; men deserted
their usual avocations, and occupied
themselves in nursing the sick and
burying the dead. It is in times like
these that our poor fallen human nature
rises superior to itself, and shaking off
the shackles which have bouud it to
things earthly, assumes the heavenly
mantle of benevolence and etiarity. Our
order furnished its heroes in this une-
qual combat, and knights of honor took
their proper Stand in the front rant.
The predictions of our enemies that our
order could not withstand such a test,
have proved to be false. The dreadful
ordeal through which we have passed
has inspired us anew with confidence
and respect in its stability, and proved
to the world the success of our system
and its ability to meet the severest trials.
We lost during the epidemic 193 mem-
bers from yellow fever and from other
causes, from July to November, 143 re-
quiring the payment of $070,000 from
the widows and orphans fund. These
payments we met promptly without a
murmur; besides, $15,000 was contri-
buted voluntarily for the relief of the
sufferers during the epidemic."
The supreme dictator of the order has
issued a circular letter to the lodges ask-
ing assistance for the distressed at
Memphis, which is meeting with a
name op texas lodges.
The first lodge in the state was insti-
tuted at Overton and bears the name of
the place of its location, and then fol-
lowed lodges which, with the exceptions
noted in parentheses, bear the name of
the place of their location: Troupe,
Giddings, Brenham, Zavala at (Troupe),

These lodges were represented in the
first annual meeting of the grand lodge
of the state, held at Palestine last year.
The lodges instituted during the last
year are: Limestone (Groesbeeck), Cle-

Reports from these lodges show they
are composed of good material and in-
clude some of the most prominent pro-
fessional and mercantile men of the
state. The rapid progress of the order
during the last year is largely due to the
energy and enthusiasm of tlie following
grand dictators: T. C. Byrne, Terrell
lodgre; ,T. R. Rutherford, Mineola lodge;
T. Q. Mullins, La Grange lodge; John
F. Crowe, Giddings lodge; R. H. Powell,

lodge; J, E. Smith, Helena lodge; H.
M. Browne, Chosen Friend lodge: J. S.
Barbee, Tyler lodge ; Henry L. liankin,
Chosen Friend lodge; J. Cummings,
Travis lodge. The number of lodges
instituted in Texas during the past
twelve months is larger than in any
other grand jurisdiction in the United
proceedings of the grand lodge.
The proceedings of the three days
session, necessarily of a secret character,
covered a larse number of subjects con-
nected with the workings of the order,
the stewardship of grand and subordi-
nate officers, amending of old rules and
enacting of new ones for the guidance
of lodges in this jurisdiction in the fu-
ture, discussions and action on appeals,
etc. The members of the lodge were a
fine body in personnel, in point of intel-
ligence above the average, and as a whole
a'harmonious and deliberative assem-
blage. Hon. F. E. Piner, of Denton,
was chosen as grand representative to
the supreme lodge of the United States,
to meet at Charleston, S. C., in May
next, and the following gentlemen elect-
ed and installed as
officers for tiie ensuing term.

On Thursday evening a picnic was
given in honor of the representatives of
the grand lodge aud visiting members.
After a parade of the order through the
principal thoroughfares of the city, six
cars, three buses and a legion of hacks
and buggies transported the knights and
their lady guests to the beautiful grounds
in the northeastern suburbs. The address
of welcome, a happy and eloquent effort,
was delivered by Richard Morgan, Esq.,
of Dallas, which was responded to by
Hon. Webster Flanagan, of Henderson,
grand dictator of the jurisdiction of
Texas, who reviewed the origin, rise and
progress of the order in well rounded
perfods. At the close of the speeches
ample justice was done to a profusion
of edibles and choice liquids, spread on
numerous tables under the shade of
trees by the ladies, which were partaken
of en fatmlle. Later the grounds were
lighted and the spacious pavilion ever
and anon filled with joyous couples,
who prolonged the dance until 1 o'clock.

ing in stating tliat the Morgan railroad
company had purchased the New Or-
leans Texas Pacific road. The Times,
also, in its yesterday evening's edition,
said "it was understood" that Mr.
Charles A. Whitney, while in New
York recently, had purchased that por-
tion of the old Mobile and Chattanooga
road which is known as the New Or-
leans and Donaldsonville road, for the
sum of $300,000. Neither statement is
correct. Mr. Hutchinson, of the Mor-
gan railroad company, informed a re-
presentative of the Democrat that, while
there had been some talk about the pur-
chase of the Donaldsonville road, no
purchase had, to his knowledge, been
made, and he would know immediately
if anything of the kind were to occur.
The Bee, was very much out of the way
in speaking of the sale of the entire
New Orleans Texas Pacific road, for so
far from entertaining any thought of
selling, Mr. Wlieelock, the president of
the road, recently went to Chicago, in
company with Mr. Clark, president of
the Illinois Central railroad company,
and will, with him, go to Marshall, Tex-
as, and thence make a thorough inspec-
tion of the line and of the work done. It
is contemplated to make some arrange-
ment with the Illinois Central by which
the Texas and Pacific may be speedily
finished, and should the Donaldson|roHd
be purchased by the Morgan company,
the intention is to continue the road
from a point opposite Alexandria te
Ponchatouia on the New Orleans, St.
Louis and Chicago road. The Illinois
Central is a vast and enormously wealthy
corporation, and sees the great impor-
tance of securing a road directly into the
heart of Texas, which will enable Chi-
cago to compete with St. Louis for the
Texas trade, from which that enterpris-
ing city has been shut out in the past.
There is every reason to believe that be-
fore another year shall roll around New
Orleans will not only have one, but two
railroads into Texas. Our merchants
can not too soon realize that most impor-
tant fact, and should take such steps
to secure the trade which is theirs by
right, but which can only be gained by
hard and persistent work. Every ham-
let in the state of Texas is visited by
eastern and western drummers, and it
will take time and patient labor to reap
the benefits which close and rapid con-
nection would immediately have given
before the roads to St. Louis were built.

[Special Correspondence of the News.]
New York, Aug. 19.—The steamer City
of New York delivered A'100,000 in gold
from London to Mortin, Bliss & Co., and
Van Hoffman to-day. This makes the im-
portation of gold during the past eight
days $1,468,000, with a full million more on
the way, and more to follow. As stated
by the "writer a fortnight ago the bank of
England will probably let the shipments
of gold this way go on for some time be-"
fore she applies the brakes to prevent the
outflow. Her own coffers, and those of
the bank of France, are full to overflow-
ing, and a dozen or fifteen millions can be
spared without the loss being felt Money
on the street continues to be offered at 1
per cent., and so long as this is the case
the bank will not put up its rate.
The gold received to-day was partly in
bars—these being a cheaper shipment than
Silver is cabled 51 13-16d, and the market
is apparently very steady, with chances
more favorable to a rise than a fall.
The Missouri, Kansas and Texas earn-
ings the second week in August were f05,-
000, against £58,800 last year.
Cotton ruled strong all day—fully con-
firming the remarks of Saturday that the
majority in the exchange were beginning
to think better of cotton. The business to-
day has been fair at the advance, and the
market closes hard. September 11.04, Oc-
tober 10.59, November 10.20.
The proposed new rates of commission
which yesterday were referred to the
board of managers, have to be submitted
back to the exchange, a two-thirds vote of
which will be necessary for their adoption.
There is a feeling among some of the best
informed members that the final incorpora-
tion of the proposed new rules into the
by-laws, is improbable.
New York, august 20.—The S. S. Les-
sing delivered S310,000 gold this afternoon
to Flock and Co. and Matt Morgan's Sons.
There was some move in Texas and Pa-
cific land p-ants to-day, $45,000 changing
hands at 32 ^(<£33. Also sales of $40(X) of
Iron Mountain firsts at $112%: £20,-
000 do. seconds at 95c, an advance.
Government 4's were bid up to 101'% on
the early call and sold at that; but stock
came out freely and the bonds were ob-
tainable before the close of the session at
101%, with IOI34" bid. About $800,000
changed hands: the fives of '81 sold at
1025-g. Market had the appearance either
of uncertainty or manipulation.

Stocks closed without snap. Burlington
and Cedar Rapids advanced 4 per cents, to
New York. August 21.—a private Lon-
don cable, 5 p. m,, reports everything de-
pressed, and American advices looked for
with more than u«ual interest. The kind
of bonds put up yesterday for shipment to
the United States are supposed to be mixed
securities, and sent in place of gold, being
found a cheaper remittance.
Money was offered at 3 per cent, after re-
newal of loans in the morning at six; but
stocks, as a whole, were still stupid: the
undertone seems good, but the market
wants a bull leader. With many Gould,
now on the deep, is looming up as a bug-
bear, and while the bulls say he will make
things fly upward, the bears predict that
he will run the machine on the down
track. Amidst all this conflict of opinion,
one thing may be set down as certain: bis
own securities, like Wabash. Union Pa-
cific. Kansas Pacific and Kansas Northern,
will be cared for.
The large German bond-dealers here do
not believe the London Times'.s story about
the large quantity of bonds put up yester-
day for our market. Instead of this they
say they are shipping bonds to London.

Business was better to-day in all
branches, and all friars of quarantine ap-
pear to have subsided in the minds of the
interior merchants, whose orders have
been more liberal than at any time since
the attempt was made to " lJottle up the
In the provision market there was more
doing at steady prices, and some disposi-
tion shown by dealers to stock up. Flour
has been in fair request, but prices are
easy. Bran continues firm.
Hay was easier to-day, with offerings of
prime western at reduced figures.
In the grain market matters are in statu
quo, with prices easy but unchanged.
The arrivals to-day were free, and be-
sides three steamships, two from New
York and one from Liverpool, two barks
were added to the tonnage in port.
Among the imports from foreign ports
were 4140 bundles cotton ties, 216 tons of
coal, and 5500 sacks of salt. The stock of
the latter article is accumulating, and
prices are easier.
In the hide market there was a good
business done to-day, with some liberal
sales, which authorize a partial revision of
quotations. The receipts continue large,
and the general movement shows increased
In the wool market there were some
small transactions to-day, showing a

wheat deficiency in efrope.
Mr. Alexander Delmar, a statistician of
some repute, writes to the Chicago Times
that this year's wheat crop of the world
will amount to about 1,540,000,000 bushels ;
that this will create a deficiency in certain
countries of about 225,000,000 bushels,
and that this deficiency will be made good
by purchases from certain other countries
in about the following proportions: The
United States 150,000,000, Russia 50,000,000,
Roumania 20,000,OX), and Canada, Austra-
lia and India 5,000.000 bushels.
The report of the agricultural depart-
ment informs us that the production of
wheat in the United States, for the cur-
rent year, will approximate 420,000,000
bushels, and the quality will be much
superior to that of last year. Certainly
no better proof is needed that the few
grains of wheat which the servant of
Cortez found in his rice, and was ordered
to sow, were cast upon good ground.
The Liverpool spot market opened buoy-
ant and closed higher, with sales of 15,000
bales for the day, of which 12,100 were
American. Futures opened higher and
closed steady at the advance. Ine New
York spot market closed steady and un-
changed, with sales of 2342 bales. Futures
opened barely steady and closed weak at a
decline: sales for the day, 132,500 bales. In
this market sales of only 70 bales were re-
ported, but the exchange advanced prices
% to %, and bulletined the market as clos-
glass. This Day.

To Commercial Travelers of Texas:
"^"OT long ago a terrible and most outra-
geous crime was committed upon the per-
son of A. Benner, one of our number.
This murderer is still at large, and as there
does not seetn to be any intention on the part
of our state authorities to take action tending
to his arrest, we therefore deem it our duty t5
take the matter into our own hands, and for
the purpose of apprehending the villain, it is
our determination to offer a Reward of One
Thousand Dolla** for the apprehension and
delivery of tke same to our state authorities.
Commercial travelers of Texas who feel any
interest in this matter are respectfully re-
quested to forward their contributions to the
