Wednesday Morning, Oct 27,1886
Gckorimo and his warriors and
squaws have arrived a Pensacola.
Skkatob Maxkt is to make a
speech in Galveston to-day, the
Kate Field says the drag stores
of Iowa are nothing but grogshops.
How does Kate know ?
Sam Jokes has been snubbed by
the Boston preachers. Sam has
the chock of a government mule
and don't mind being snubbed.
Th* Fort Worth Gazette says
that only 114,000 more is noeded
to insure the building of a railroad
trom Fort Worth to Brownwood.
Republican orators in the North
insist that the negroes and white
Republicans in the South arc dis-
franchised by the Democrats.
Governor Ireland wants to bo
elected United Statos senator, but
he is not stumping tbe state in bis
own behalf. He is in tho hands
of bis iriends.
F. M. Wilcox suicided near Bur"
lington, Iowa, tbo other day by
exploding a dynamite cartridge
under bis arm. His body was
blown to atoms.
The Houston Herald is nomi-
nally a Democratic paper. It sup
ports Ross and the state ticket, but
it opposes tho Democratic nomi-
nees for county offices.
Ex-Governor Roberts delivered
the opening address at the Texas
State Fair at Dallas on Monday.
Dallas has two fairs and there is
every reason to believe that both
will be successful.
Mr. J. P. Bridges, editor of tho
Luling Signal, has been elected
Major of the 3rd regiment of Tex-
as Volunteer Guards. Accept our
congratulations, Majah! May you
live long and prosper.
The average opponent of the
Democratic party is satisfied with
making all kinds of accusation
against it, but not one of them ever
suggests any remedy for tbo evils
of which he complains.
Th* Baltimore Manufacturers'
Record publishes Veekly a list of
every new manufacturing industry
and additions to old ones in the
south. In last week's issue Texas
makes a very handsome showing.
It is stated that some of tho
leading state politicians at Austin
are working the local contest with-
out aay regard whatever for for-
mer party affiliation. There is
evidently a growing disposition to
do away with party politics in
Mas. Cornelia M. Stewart, wifo
of the late Alexander T. Stewart,
of New York, died at her residenco
New York suddenly on the 25th
inst She was born in New York
in 1802 and was married to Mr.
Stewart in 1823. Her funeral wiU
take place on Thursday.
Cotton movements and Fluctua-
tions, is the title of one of tbe hand-
somest little books issued this
year. It is published by Latham,
Alexander k Co., bankers and
commission merchants, New York
and contains a complete history of
, the cotton market from 1861 to
Th« Houston Post says Sam
Jones is rapidly playing out. He
is no longer a drawing card. Sam
is strictly a sensational preacher
aad peoDle who hear him once do
not want to bear him again. There
is too ranch blackguardism in Sam's
sermons to take with a refined
l»yil£U ^ ,. ri mjmm' "

that the dispatch is a
— The coal mines in Montague
county are being developed.
—The relief coommittees for the
Sabine Pass and Johnson's bayou
sufferers are still hard at work.
—Kcal estate dealers in San An-
tonio report an active demand for
property and an increase ip price.
— Work has been commenced on
the Laredo smelting works and in
30 days they are expected to be in
— Several parties have been ar-
rested at McGregor and Crawford,
McLennen county, for violating the
local option law.
—Corpus Christi has raised and
forwarded two hundred and sixty-
one dollars to the Sabino Pass and
Johnson bayou sufferers.
—The Ward.Fiy murder case
was begun at Bandera last Monday.
Ward murdered Fly in Castro-
ville while he, Ward, was on a big
— J. J. Moss, an old citizen of
Grayson county, residing near
Bells, suicided by taking morphine.
Ho "had been partially deranged
for several years.
—The ladies of Belton arranged
themselves into a committee and
have collocted and shipped to
Orange and Beaumont four boxes
of clothing for tho Sabine Pass
— Sid Evans, a son of A. J. Evans,
formerly United States district at-
torney, was arrested last Friday
for theft from the person. An in-
vestigation proved that Evans was
not guilty and ho was discharged.
—A vote will bo taken in Cal-
houn county November 2, to de-
termine tbo location of the county
scat. At present it is at lndianola;
the probabilit}' is it will be remov-
ed to Lavaca, which is not subject
—H. C. Still is a candidate tor
tho State senate and is supported,
the Houston Age says, by tho
Knights of Labor. This same H.
C. Still carries on a shop in tho
penitentiary at Iluntsville and has
all his work done by convict labor.
Tho Knights of Labor are opposed
to convict labor.
—The Galveston News learns
through private sources that on
Friday night last the north bound
passenger train on the Internation-
al railway was attacked near
Overton, by parties along the
track with stones, bricks and tbe
like and a number of windows
wore broken ; a shot was fired and
Mr. Haveland, a Galveston drum-
mer was shot in the thigh. No
cause was assigned for tho devil-
— The case of Tom Varnell for
the murder of old man Land
in Hill county several years
ago, is set for trial at Hillsboro this
week. Yarnell who is out on bond
is now living in Waco and the pro-
bability is that ho will apply for a
change of venue. If there is any
truth in the published reports Var-
nell is guilty of a foul murder, but
several years have elapsed since
its committal ; the defendant is out
on bail and the witnesses are scat-
tered. It is almost safe to predict
that Varnell will bo acquitted.
Or all tho countries in tho world
tbe United States should be freest
from class prejudices, but it would-
seem that agitators and dema-
gogues are doing their best to ar-
ray one class against another.
Every conceivable effort is being
made to prejudice the country peo-
ple against the towns, and the faet
that the town and the country aro
mutually dependent one upon the
other is entirely overlooked".
Again no effort is being spared to
array labor against capital, while
it ought to be apparent that with
out one the other would be useless;
l^jbor can do nothing without capi-
tal, and capital without labor would
bo entirely useleSs. Tho two aro
mutually dependent upon each
otbor, and instead of fomenting
dissentions there should be a unity
of interests which would be mutual-
ly beneficial to both.
On Saturday last Judge Abbott
and Col. Kearby bad a joint bebato
at Hillsboro. Both aro candidates
for congress. Abbott is tho Demo-
cratic nominee and Kearby is tbe
candidate of tbe Grcenbackers,
Republicans and darklanternists.
He is posing as the champion of
the people and has no platform or
principles and suggests no remedy
for the etila under whicb he says
the people are suffering. The gen-
eral opinion is that Abbott's speech
strengthened tho Democracy and
that parties heretofore supporting
Kearby will drop him.
There are now upward of 400,000
registered American patents.
The Baltimore Manufacturers'
Record says it looks as though the
long desired cotton-picking ma-
chine has at lastbeen secured. Tho
Mason Cotton picker was tested at
Sumter, S. C., a week ago in pres-
ence of a number of cotton men
and others interested in the per-
fection of the maeh'no. Accord-
ing to reports themaebmo met tho
expectations of its friends and
demonstrated that the beginning
of a revolution in the cotton inter-
ests of the South has been made.
The machine is claimed now to
liavo a picking capacity of 2000
pounds a day.
The Democrats of Texas founded
the free school system and they
are now maintaining it. Tho col-
ored people have exactly the same
benefit from the free schools that
tho whites have. They ought to
feel under obligations to the Demo-
cracy of Texas for tho free school
privileges they enjoy. Tho Demo-
crats arc the only true friends tho
colored people have.
