Houston, Julj 4.—The ustiooal HoliJay wis
ushered in with a salute of artillery. After
tbia recognition of one of th« most eventful
dej a in the history of the nation, no other
manifestations of patriotism were exhibited
in the city further tban the throwing to the

large number of picnics and barbecues out of
the city, the population was reduced to sjch
an extent as to make the usually bustling city

end that he had the power to restore peace to
the country. General Mas replied that, however
much such an act might be applauded as pi

cific arrangement would be obtained.

N«arly every night, in some locality of the

thus ej-dangering tbe health of the neighbor-
I hove notified the police twice, and on M*y

furnish him. if J am correctly informed. He

them after we are through." I waited, but
taw neither lime, carbolic acid, nor anything
e-se used. J desire to know if scavengers are
instructed to disinfect only after they are
through—polluting the air of an entire neigh-
I desire to draw attention to this subject, so
that privies are disinfected before they are
disturbed. The open slop carts perambulating
tbe streets and alleys at night, should likewise
have their offensive contents disinfected. This
total neglect of sanitary precautions by cer
tain individuals (mostly negroes) requires the
immediate attention of the proper authorities.
In this connection I would humbly submit a
1. Why are privies and cesspools emptied in
fcummer, when miasma is fostered by heat and
epidemics, such as dengue or yellow fever,
apt to occur?
2. Why can not this source of danger be
avoided by a city ordinance compelling the
cleaning of privies or cesspools during the win-
ter months, when the cold, through ozone in
tbe air, acts as a disinfectant, and people
sleep with closed windows?
3 W hy, if the work must be done in summer,
can not the neighbors be notified in the day-
time that such cleaning of a particular out-
house is contemplated—thus giving them a
chance to close their windows? Otherwise,
they most likely are awakened by the clash of
buckets, to find their houses permeated by
foul air. People thus surprised remain with
closed windows, overcome by the heat and
stench, until the work is done. To open the
windows means to let in more concentrated
foul air than at the commencement of
operations. Woe to those that sleep
soundly and inhale for hours the poison-
ous vapor! At night the human frame
is more susceptible to malarial or miasmatic
conditions, particularly daring sleep, when
the temperature of the body is decreased and
the vital power diminished. This brings
about the question, why not empty closets in
the early morning, when people are awake?
My advice is to thoroughly disinfect privies to
be emptied, the day before. He who takes life
is criminal before law. He who plants the
causes of many so-called " insidious " diseases,
fruch as n.alarial and typhoid fevor3, scarletl-
na or diphtheria—in short, takes life indirect-
1)—is he not criminal before law? m d

Your correspondent, Partisan, suggests a
colored person for school trustee. Why not?
Tbe colored people are certainly as much en-
titled to representation in the board of trustees
ns in tbe city council, and as much entitled to
a member in the Commissioners Court; to rep-
resentation in some of the better-paying couuty
(ffices; to he allowed the floater in our next
h gislative canvass, etc., etc. If those among
our white fellow-citizeDS who so enthusiasti-
er. lly supported Cuney in the late election are
c UH'stent, tbey will certainly support a colored
n an for school trustee. It is not the square
^ling to use the negro, and then
' snake1' him cff. Some of the colored
people, after the late election, accused certain
white gentlemen of having a purpose other
than to give the colored people representation,
in electing Mr. Cuney, and pointed to the
small vote Washington received as an evidence
of tfce fac t. The very marked difference iu
tbe vote given the two colored men has never
been explained; and if the same elements now
refuse to give some colored man other than
Cuney a sh3wing, the inconsistency will be yet
more apparent. The citizens committee ought
to reconvene and canvass this matter. Tney
may rest assured that the colored man is " on
deck" to stay, unless they are iucou6istent
enough to sweep him off. What,
then? Well, Mr. Citizens Com-
mittee, in that case you will hear from
his 1100 votes solid against you in favor of the
chronic politician, who has , the longest purse
and the least self respect. Now, you invited
him to take your arm, walk into your policial
dining-room and eat with you from your po-
litical tfcble; and you did this in a dmncm?trd-
tive manner, which impressed him thiu you
acknowledged his social equality. Do vou
^oppose he i- going to allow you to forgot this?
No, fir; he will jutt blip his forefinger through
yenr butter bole aud slap you famllUrl 1 ou
tbe shoulder ss he exclaims: "Come, oi l fel-
low; )ou ewe me your support. I stuck to
you, tow you must stick to me. '
Now, I'm one of the " I told you so " crowd.
You were warned that your chickens would
travel homo for a roosting-place, but you
lie otto i fce idea. It promises to be entertain-
ing. Tho^e who believe this is a white min's
country, so far as tbe elective offices are cin-
ctrned, will amuse themselves watching
you who in the late eloction joined your votes
with the negroes against a majority of the
white voters of the city, to see whether you will
fquirm out of your responsibility, or swallow
another dose of free-and-easy 8p*rkn's haliism

Ten years ago the Dutch government cdm-
menced a war at Acheen, iu tne north of .Suma-
tra, which continued without interruption
down to last month. The war bai weig^el

bes had to be maintained, almost uod r tne
equator, by constant drafts from J-iv* a id
ultimately frcm borne. Tbe result of efforts
of such magnitude, continued ove* ten yeirs,
has been nothing. The Acheenese are still in
aims and unsubdued.

"Ilow'a Yonr Liverf"
In the comic opera of " The Mikado, " his im-
pc rial highness says:
"To make, to some extent,
Each evil Liter
A ruuniutr river
Of harmless merriment."
A nobler task than making evil livera river.?
of harmless merriment no person, kins? or Uy-
man, could take upon himself. Tne liver
among the ancients was considero 1 t.h<i source
of all a man's evil impulses, and the cbimei
are ten to one to-cliy th*t if one's liver U in
ugly condition of oiscontent, s;me one'i tuvi
will be mashed before night
How's jour liver?" is equivalent to the in-
quiry: Are you a bear or an aug 1 to day?
Nine tenths of the " puru cmo in«H*,''the
actions for divorce, the curtain lectures, the
family rows, not to speak of murders, cri-nBi
and other calamities, are prompted hy the ir-
ritating effect of the inactivity of the liver
upon tfce biain. ForihergiSl, the gre*t spi-
cialht, says this, and ho knows He aLo
brows that to prevent such catastrophes no-
tbirg equals Warner's safe cure, renowned
throughout tbe world as a maker of
*' Kach evil Liver

Of hurculess merriment."
