Coronation of the Queen' an Im-
posing Ceremony. :
Special to the Derrison News .
Waco, Texas, May 8—10150 p.
m.—The Waco Mai Fest is certain-
ly an immense success. The town
is literally filled with firemen, citi-
zens, soldiers and visitors from all
parts of the State.
The procession Tuesday morning
was the grandest I have ever wit-
nessed in Texas. It was nearly two
miles long, and about twelve hun-
dred men marched in the ranks.
Forty-three fire companies were
represented, by nearly one thousand
Some of the cars In the procession
were very well gotten up, and re-
flected gieat credit upon Waco.
The procession marched from the
commons to the fair grounds about
ten o’clock a. m. On its arrival the
coronation of the May Queen took
place. No town in Texas, Denison
excepted, can boast of so many
pretty ladies as Waco, and the
selection must have been very diffi-
cult, but it is an excellent one. The
queen is very fair to look upon and
altogether lovely. The address de-
livered by the queen at her corona-
tion was excellent. The afternoon
was’spent in diverse ways, and every
body present enjoyed themselves
To-morrow the trial between the
different fire companies takes place ;
also between the military companies.
Governor Hubbard will also deliver
an address. R.
A dispatch was received in this
city Wednesday evening, announc-
ing the death of Commodore Charles
Morgan, which atecutreti in rSjfew
York Tuesday morntfig.
Commodore Morgan was presi-
dent and chief stockholder of the H.
&T. C. Railroad, and his loss Will
be severely felt by that corporation.
It is but little more than a yeaF since
he took the management of that
road, and during the time he has
worked a revolution in the current
of Texas trade. Owning two steam-
ship lines, and controlling half a
dozen railroads, he inaugurated a
system of ‘'through rates” of freights
which defied competition.
Although residing in New York,
Commodore Morgan’s interests were
mainly in the Southern States, and
he lias been aptly called the Vander-
bilt of the South. He was a man
possessed of iron- will, of violent
prejudices and strong likes and dis-
likes, and wherever he went made
himself felt. Driven from Galves-
ton by what lie considered an unjust
taxation, he turned his attention to
Houston, and for some years lias
been the life of that city. His motto
in connection with both railroads
and steamships was “Get the busi-
ness.” If high rates could not be
had he took low ones,
did not draw the trade he carried it
for nothing. He was an excellent
judge of human nature, and seldom
made a mistake in the appointment
of his subordinates. For several
years his business has been chiefly
conducted by Col. Charles A. Whit-
ney, his son-in-law, who will un-
doubtedly succeed him in the con-
trol of his vast wealth.
They are Nice and Nobby.
McDougall’s brick building was
struck by lightning about 1 o’c’ock
Wednesday morning. One current
ran down the post that supports the
weather; yane on the rqof, shattering
the post into innumerable splinters,
and was then dissipated on the tin
roof. The vane was not damaged.
The other current struck the ane-
mometer on the roof near the front
of the building, tore off the arma-
tures, passed down the wire into
the office in the second story of the
building, jumped to another wire ly-
ing near and thence to a copying
press. The press was -screwed to
a stand in which were a couple of
drawers. The latter were thrown
across the room, and the stand con-
siderably damaged. No trace of the
electric fluid could be found on the
floor or ceiling, and it is not known
where it went to after reaching the
The register stopped at a quarter
post one, which is no doubt the time
the bolt fell.
A party standing on Main street,
nearly opposite the building at the
time, says there was a vivid flash on
the telegraph wires that tun along
that side of the street.
About the same hour an old hol-
j low tree just outside of the park
and if these fence, in Rusk avenue, was struck
by lightning and shivered into many

Those parties that attempted to re-

given in Denison, Monday night, had j
a decidedly lively (?) time of it.

and down bridges, and reached here |

Mr. Plummer and his lady, in a

after a similar experience reached
here at the same time.
Exactly what the party in Fred
Baumgrasse’s hack, Mr. Chamber-1
lin and Mr. Hall and their ladies, ;
went through, is not known, but it is j
said that they came by the way of \
Red River, and certain it is that at
half-past eight yesterday morning |
their horses were used up, they had
sent to town for others, whiie they j
themselves were taking breakfast at
a farm house five miles from town.

Several months ago ttfe grocery
house of Gaisman & Co. was estab-
lished in Denison, when there ap-
peared no room h r another business
house of that kind. But notwith-
standing that fact, there is now no
firm in that line of trade that receives
a larger patronage. The reason for
that fact is apparent. They aim to
make a profit on everything, but
they make that profit as light as pos
sible. In this way they have reduc-
ed the expenses of living in Denison
no less than twenty per cent. For
thus promoting the cause of econ-
omy, Gaisman & Co. deserve great
credit, and are receiving the substan-
tial appreciation of the people.
