Democrat say a person lately
wounded is lying in a very crit-
ical condition. It 'is feared
that his.shin is injured. It is
probable that spine was written
for the word which appears as
shin." The News is probably
not well acquainted with the
anatomy of the colored man.
The shin is the most vulnerable

The Dallas Herald says that
the licensing of gambling is be-
ginning to take shape in the
press of the state. The ques-
tion is one, purely of expedien-
cy ; from .1 moral standpoint
there is no difference of opin-
ion. Some of the papers dare
not favor the license system fur
fear of giving offense to those
who oppose it. Questions of
this character should only be
discussed from a practical
standpoint—it is universally ad-
mitted that gambling is an evil,
and being one, the advocates
of the license system propose to
mitigate it to some extent.

special to the Galveston News,
land certificates will be issued
to railroads, and as there is 110
land now subject to location,
the land certificates will be com-
paratively worthless. The is-
sue of such certificates should
cease, as it is not at all credita-
ble for the state to be a party
to such a swindle, because it is
nothing but a swindle to issue
land certificates when there is
110 land upon which to locate
It is stated on good author-
ity that a joint stock company
has been organized in New
York for supplying the eastern
cities with gas manufactured at

in the transportation of coal,
which will be made into gas at
