The government is now furnish-

The orders for steel rails received
by the various rail mills during

Thb Austin Statesman has never

Negroes, to the number of 1,000,
held an indignation meeting on

their race hy Italians.

In Amsterdam recently a mer-
chant was sentenced to two years'
imprisonment at hard labor for
speaking disrespectfully of the
Queen Regent in the lobby of a
theater. The sturdy Hollanders
have a pointed way of reminding a
man that he ought to be a gentle-
Sallibbdrt may equal Gladstone's
record in the number of times he
bolds the Premiership. This is the
third time Sallisbury has held that
office. Gladstone had it four times,
but when he reached Salisbury's
present record he was a good many
years older than the Tory leader is
The trolley cars in Philadelphia
have reduced taxable property to
the extent of $1,000,000 worth of
horses, but as the general net in-
crease in the valuation for the year
is $13,000,000 the city has no com-
plaint to make. The figures are a
fair illustration of the result of the
introduction of improved machinery.
It is not generally known that
Senator Quay of Pennsylvania is an
accomplished French scholar. He
reads the language as readily as be
do6t English and gets all of the
latest novels published in that lan-
guage from his bookseller, while he
has as extensive acquaintance with
Dnmas, Hugo and other authors in
THE NAVAL MALITIA.
Attention is being given by the
Navy Department to the recently or
ganized auxUliary force which goes
under the name of the Naval
Malitia. Acting Secretary McAdoo,
who has long manifested a special
interest in the development of this
arm of the national defense, has been
charged with the task of investigate
ing its present condition and re-
sources. While he has not himself
given his conclusions to the public
recently at least in formal terms, it
has been learned through bis assis
tants that the naval militia has been
generally in good condition and
composed of material which gives
promise of valuable service in the
future. Here, however, as in so
many other directions, the disad-
vantage arising from the lack of uni
fortuity in the legislation and regu-
lations affecting the naval militia
and systems of equipment and drill
also manifests itself. To somo ex-
tent, of course, these conditions may
be gotten rid of through legislation
on tho respective states themselves.
At the same time it is difficult to se-
cure concerted action by bodies like
the state legislatures upon a matter
affecting general rather than special
interests. This being the case,
action by Congress should be sought
and where such action is possible
within the lines laid down by the
Constitution, it should be had by
tho body which cannot most ef-
ficiently bring about the needed uni-
formity. It would serve a useful
purpose if both the War and Navy
departments should request from
the head of the Department of Jus-
tice a special opinion as to the ex-
tent to which Congress can go in
legislating regarding both the land
and naval militia, which are likely to
becomo most important elements of
the national defense in the near
It appears from a calculation
made by the Chief of the Bureau of
Statistics that the consumption of
sugar during 1894 was 63£ pounds
for each man, woman and child in
the country, which is estimated to
bo in excess of the weight of bread
consumed in the same time. A
pound of sugar, by the way, coil
tains as much nutrition as a pound
of beef, and costs only a third as
Thb rumor that the Duko of
York's baby is a deaf mute is again
on its travels and seems to excite
considerable anxiety in English so-
cial and political circles. If this re-
port shall be substantiated it Bhonld
not create any alarm among British
aristocrats. A deaf and dumb mon-
arch may prove better than one who
had the tongue of Bichard III. and
the ear of a Dionysius.
The Statesman says "The Inter-
national Building, Loan and Savings
Institution," of New Haven, Conn.,
with the assistance of local agents,
bas swindled quite a number of
prominent persons of Austin out of
a neat sum of money. The injured
parties are preparing to bring suit
to recover. As they had obtained
no permit to do basinesa in Texas,
they should have been considered as
frauds from the jump and given a
that the institution should be blot-
Is taking possession of the Island
of Formosa Japan inherits the task
of dealing with the savage natives
of the interior, who remain uncon-
quered, though they been invaded
by the armies of Spain, Holland and
China. The barbarians will fight
desperately for the independence
they bavo always maintained, and it
is probable that Japan, as the first
step, will try to conciliate them.
But the island is only one-fourth
the size of Missouri, and with the
aid of modern weapons and over-
whelming numbers the Japanese
could make short work of any or-

was fought tho great battle of the
civil war, along the creek called
Bull Run, at Manassas Junction, in
Virginia. The battle and tho extra-
ordinary panic in which it ended
wero picturesque bejond anything
else in the history of the civil con-
flict, and they have formed the sub-
ject of writing voluins enough
to fill whole libraries. Yet so com-
pletely have the passions of civil war
subsided, and so universally are the
American people looking forward
rather than backward, that the anni-
versary of Bull Run is probably not
even noticed by one in ten of those
who fought in the battle or of the
millions to whom at the time it seem-
ed an event of stupendous impor-
THE LITERARY HACK.
It is reported that Miss Conmello
Yanderbilt, daughter of the divorced
Mr. and Mrs. Wm. K., is to marry
the young Duke of Mariboro. If
the report be true and the duke is
as gracely a scamp as his father was
the young lady is making the mis-
take of her life. The widow Hem-
mersly married the late duke and
became the mistress of Blurheim
and spent a million dollars on the
castle and grounds, but, those who
knew the profligate old duke never

It has been a long time since any
American in public life has spoken
approvingly of the possibility of a
third Presidential term. Senator
Quary, however, has no hesitation
in declaring that Cleveland will be
the next Democratic candidate and
that the third-term idea will not
hurt him. Senator Quay knows
more about machine .tactics than he
does about popular sentiment, and
cannot be accepted as an expert on
tho subject of public feeling on the
The American Statiscal Associa-
tion has published in complete form
Miss Isabel Eaton's contribution
concerning the sweat-shops of New
York and Chicago. The figures are
almost incredible. This is not a
new subject. Congressional and
State Legislative Committees have
dealt with it time and again, but
the infamous practice is allowed to
continue. Tbe sweat-shop is a dis-
grace. When woman work 14 hours
a day for starvation wages in un-
sanitary tenements, it is high time
HI* Income of •5,000 a Year and How
He Get* It.
Hack writers, who nro also bohe-
mians, tell pretty yarns about tho
great sums of nionoy that they earn.
I fancy that tho bohomian haok usu-
ally computes his earnings in this
way: When ho conceives an idea for
a $100 article, ho counts that ho bas
made |100. Then when ho gots an
ordor for the article ho counts $100.
Whon ho writes it, there is another
hundred; when ho turns it in to tho
editor, another hundred; whon it is
ncoopted, another; whon ho gots tho
money, still another. So with this
one poor littlo articlo tho sanguine
and cheerful boliemian hack will in
tho end, aooording to his happy
mothod of computation, have mado
$600. No wondor that wo hear of lit-
erary hacks who mako $10,000 and
$20,000 a year. But tlioy do not make
it by a long shot. It is not possiblo
for a hack unless ho have some sjie-
cial and exceptional good luck to
mako moro than $6,000 a year.
I have mado that much, but I av-
erage only a littlo loss than $5,000 a
year. To do this I work every day
in tho year, and in all my walks
abroad my eyes liavo to bo always
open for subjoots. It may bo interest-
ing to mako a transcript from my
acoount book for a year. This will
show tho sources of a hack's income
and indicate in some measuro the
amount of work that had to be done.
I do not for obvious reasons state

man who wished to show to tho

did not pay my feo very cheerfully,

A little unnecessary excitement
has been aroused lately by the dis-
covery that somo Birmingham metal
manufacturers bavo boen making
idols to bo worshiped by tho heathen
in India. Thoy probably executed
orders for which they were well
paid, and it was hardly their busi-
ness to stipulate that their wares
should bo used for ornament only.
Besides, bofore wo aro too hard on
tho heathen wo should remember
that if their idols of gold and silvOr
were molted down and sent to tho
mint thoy would reappear disguised
as coin of tho realm, and a good
many Christians would worship
them then.—Iron Age.
