that Bartlett now controls a larger

A projeot is on foot for a cot
ton mill, at Marble Falls and is in
afair way to materialize. The
large building formerly erected
for a woolen mill wiil bo used and
the falls of the river will furnish
the power. The Tribune predict!

'On certain unpleasant occa-
si6ns in the course of human

the truthful old saying that
"There are just as good fish in
the saa as were eyer caught,"
anp just as good hooks to catch
them with, and that "there is no

flourishes as a "green bay4ree."

Men seldom ask themselves if
their views are fair. They sel-
dom question either their own in-
formation or their own sincerity.
They take it for granted that
what they have done is sufficierii
to serve the occasion, and that
their conclusions are fair and im-
partial simply because they are
satisfied to entertain tHem.
There is a great sermon of sol-
id truth in the above, and the
Tribune reproduces" it for the
benefit of some of its readers.

The Savior of mankind once re-
marked: "Ho that is not for mo,

does1not beliOve that beeaiiso the
Sayior once -ina4o -that remark
that it is a solemrt duty to ''take
sides in every scr,ap that comes
up, especially When it does not
believe that any permanent good
sult f rom,tho scrap.no odds which
side wins. From this it is not
neceaaary to infer that the Trib
une is in favor, of tho ppon saloon
a 3 now conducted in a majority
of instances, t Some1 obey thpjlaw
In their conduce and maiiage-
pient, butjmanyhavjj no rgspect
for the law, and indulge in rob'-'
bing schemos or permit such to
go on within their confines. No,
the Tribune is not a supporter of
this sort of 'institution. On the
other hand, it does not believe
that the present prohibition law
can be enforced so aa to elimi-
nate from the body politic the
exoesaivo intemperance and per-
jury easential to tho existence of
many licensed institutions which
cannot exist, it seems without
violating the laws made for their
regulation in many localities.
Suppose the manufacture and
aalo of spiritous liquors in aetata
or county is prohibited by law
and the law obeyed, nobody pre-
tends that liquor could not be
purchased aoroad and delivered
to the purdhaser wnerovor he
may be, if lie is an Orderly citi-
zen, and nobody, whose desire
should be respooted, would de-
prive a citizen of this privilege or
right. Nobody whose informa-
tion Bhould be respeotod who
does not know that there are mul-
titudes of good, temperate, law-
abiding citizens who do not liko
to bo deprived of this right or
privilege, and no other man's
conscience can besubstituted for
theirs. Tho Tribune looking at
the matter in this' way, can see
no solution of tho problem but
for the state to take coritrol and
so arrange that no individual
shU traffic in liquor to gratify
greed for gain. Let the state by
the dispensary system furnish
good, pure, liquors to such 'aa ure
rightfully entitlea tnereto it they
deaire them and thereby shut out
all violatiqn8 of the law by Ba-
loons pr blind tigers, This would
take no liberty away from any
citizen, at least, none that can be
granted to individuals without
poisoning the source frpm which
tho nation must look and draw
its lifo-rtho youth ot the land.
Now haB the Tribuno taken sides?
Is it perched on the fence in fear
of tho fray? Or doeB it happen
to, ,have an opinion of its own
which neither side of the recent
fray cpuld satisfy?
