THE DAY AT HOUSTON.
Grand Celebration on the San Ja-
cinto Battle Ground—Union
A Special Council Committee to Look After
Gambling and Bawdy Houses—Water-
melon Fete on the Roof.
iHouston, Tex., July 4.—There was little
demonstration inside the city limits to-
day in celebration of the Fourth of July.
Dearly this morning a few bunches of fire-
crackers anil an occasional skyrocket were
exploded, but it was not enough to create
"enthusiasm, but rather had a depressing
effect. The patriotic citizens got out of
Itown early this morning and celebrated
after the fashion of "ye olden time.." The
lUnion Men's Social club took a good crowd
cut to JEagle '.Lake over the Southern Pa-
cific and they got back at a late hour to-
night after having had a good time. The
excursion of the duy, however, was that
1o the battle ground of San Jacinto down
uti the bayou, given by the Daughters of
the Republic for the enlargement of the
flund to bui.d a monument on the battle
ground to the memory of the heroes who
i'ell there in the struggle for Texas inde-
pendence. The first boat that left the
wharf was the steam launch iBoston, carry-
ing by special invitation most of the dis-
tinguished visiting veterans, including Gen-
eral McCulloch, Hon. .Frank Lubbock, -Gen-
eral Gano, Mr. Winters of Frio county, .1.
YV. M/oH-orse o»f Leander and Mr. .1. M.
[Hill of Austin. The crowd went down on
the tug Eugene in tow of the barge i'oyle
and others left on the Magnolia belt train
•at. 9 o'clock to catch the barge at the park.
The trip down was very pieasant. The
first stop made was at Harrisburg. where
they took on a number of excursionists.
[From there down the ride was enjoyable,
though quite warm. At the grounds the
veterans disembarked lirst, having arrived
there ahead of the others. They found a
,wagon waiting their arrival and on it rode
over the ground to establish the exact lo-
cality of the fight. There was a pretty
general agreement on lines, though it re-
cjuired a good deal of searching to find spots
upon which the consensus of opinion
agreed. The entire party enjoyed the sights
and appreciated the honor of being upon the
soil made sacred to Texans by the shedding
of the blood of such heroes as won for
Texas her independence. Beneath the im-
mense forest trees the veterans and the
young folks alike enjoyed themselves. An
excellent barbecued dinner was served
shortly after noon. There were a number
of the good people from th.e surrounding
country in attendance and. extended a very
cordial • welcome to the visitors.
The union men's social club took out a
lai-ge number of pleasure seekers to Eagle
3iake to .spend the day in outdoor sports.
There were many ladies in the party and
all had lots of fun.
This morning the members of the black-
smiths' union with many of their friends
went down to Magnolia park and had a
regular Fourth of July celebration beneath
t'he great forest trees of that lovely sub-
urban resort. They had all sorts of
amusements, that is such as would be sug-
gested by a picnic in the country. The
trains ran to suit the convenience of the
The colored people did most of the cele-
brating insiide the city limits. The Order
of Pilgrims, very popular among the col-
ored people, celebrated their fourth anni-
versary by the installation of their recent-
ly elected officers. T'hey had a street par-
ade at U o'clock this afternoon, in which
the Sheridan guards and the Packard
//ouaves in uniform participated. The lat-
ter company was composed of boys, of
whom there were thirty in the parade,
under command of Captain John Ses.wms.
They gave an exhibition drill at the park
and attracted a great deal of attention. The
installation, ceremony was quite impressive
and there was a large crowd present. The
festivities were closed by a dance that last-
ed nearly all night.
The United Brothers of Friendship and
the S. M. Ts., companion organizations of
colored people, laid the corner stone of
Kev. Booker's new Baptist church in the

were In attendance. The services were
BAWDY AND GAMBLING HOUSES.
The proposed ordinances introduced at
the last meeting of the city council to reg-
ulate bawdy and gambling houses are be-
ing very generally discussed. There is a
good deal of difference of opinion on the
subject, but there is unquestionably a
Ktronger sentiment to let them remain as
they have been. Some think that a change
might be beneficial, but rather than risk
doing worse they are opposed to a change
other than that it should regulate these
social evils. Everybody wants to see the
city continue to grow and flourish. Some
think it would do so by stamping out these
evils entirely, and they believe It can be
done. Others think that if.it could or
would be done that business stagnation
would result and the city go down instead
of prospering as in recent years. These are
willing to let good enough alone and are
opposed to the passage of the proposed
It has leaked out that in the caucus that
followed the meeting of the city council
last Monday a committee of five composed
of one alderman from each ward was ap-
pointed to take the matter in hand and
make a report at the next meeting. Alder-
men Bailey, Packard, Aubertin. Sonnen
and Freund were named as the committee,
and it is learned that a majority ol them
are against the proposed ordinances and
will so report. They are opposed to them
because they do not believe that such or-
dinances can stand in opposition to the
state law. This will leave the control of
the bawdy and gambling houses in the
hands of Marshal Pruett, and some say
he will close them, while others say he
will not. It remains to be seen what will
The interest that Dr. Rankin has taken
in this matter has shown him that there
is a more metropolitan view entertained
liy many good citizens than he pel-haps
Thought. The doctor has been earnest in
his work, and is still confident, as is learn-
ed through those with whom he has talked,
of accomplishing a good deal in the way of

lively time yesterday and came near having
two or three fistic settlements on the dif-
ferences of opinion on valuation. The mem-

C1ARD FROM BRAZORIA GRAND JURY.
Brazoria, Tex., June 30.—To The News:
It having been brought to the attention of
the grand jury of Brazoria county that the
peoplte of Alvin feel somewhat aggrieved
by the fact that certain subpoenas were
served on them through the Instance of the
sheriff of Brazoria county by a negro bail-
iff, in view of this fact we, the grand jury
of Brazoria county, take this occasion to
assure tlhese people that no insult was in-
tended and that we are satisfied that at
the time it was almost impossible for the
sheriff to obtain white bailiffs who wore
willing to serve at the small fee allowed
fo-r bailiffs, and for further explanation we
refer to the letter of our sheriff, ft. M.
Yerby, of recent date to the Galveston
.News, and fully indorse that letter.
I. P. U'NtDEiRIWOOD,
Secretary Grand Jury, Brazoria "County.
The above resolution was adopted by
nine of the grand jury, and 1 was instruct-
ed to request the Galveston News to pub-
lish the same. Q. P. UNDER WOOD,

WOMAlN'S SUDDEN DEATH.
Marquez, Leon Co., Tex., July 3.—Mrs.
Callie R. Foster died suddenly last night
at the residence of her husband, J. H.
Foster, seven miles northwest of this place.
She retired In her usual health, and be-
tween the hours of 12 and 1 her husband
was awakened by hearing her groan. He
attempted to arouse her, but found that
she had expired, and all efforts at resusci-
tion proved ineffectual. The cause of death
is unknown. She leaves several small
children and in a few days would have
given birth to another. The family have
been in this section but a short •time, re-
moving from Williamson county, at or
near Georgetown, to their present location.
A PECULIAIR LI'GHT.
Colmesneil, Tex., July 3.—Wight before

10 o'clock on the horizon east of here, last-
ing about five minutes. When first noticed
it was a dim light, growing to a clearer
white, then fading away as rapidly as it

ance has been remarked upon by many
here, none of whom has ventured an expla-
nation of the cause.

Orange, Tex., July 3.—Mr. H. J. Lutcher
of the (Lutcher & Moore lumber company
reached home this morning from a trip
through Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma,

account of an increase in the number of
establishments in the west engaged in the
manufacture of agricultural implements,
cars. v.j-.ins and furniture, his company
have determined to turn their attention to
hard woods and will hereaCter keep their
band saws running on oak. ash and wal-
nut. Of the latter the supply is less plenti-
ful. but there is no lack of good oak and
ash. They will also cut yellow pine and
cypress on circulars and on band saws.

ally promising right now, and if the rail-
