Hr and Mrs. Herbert Bulgerin,
An event which willi long he re-
numbered by the parish of St. John
the Evangelist Cath lie Church was
the celebration of the Silver Jubilee
of the erection of the present church
edifice, Sunday, September 12, on
the church grounds. The event al-
so marked the first festival of the
parish which is to be an annual af-
fair, and the observance of the Ses-
quiccntennial of the Constitution ot
the United States.
The festivities opened with a High
Mass in the church at 10 A. M. The
| building was well filled with both
members of the h me and neighbor-
ing parishes. Ilev. Paul Potgens,
■ pastor of St. John’s, in hi- sermon
| eulogized those former pastors the
fruit of whose labors is the present
thriving and spiritually sound parish
of St. John’s. In particular he j
praised the late Rev. J. J. Myers, j
who was the first resident priest in 1
Hondo, and under whose inspiration
and cooperation the church was
built twenty-five years ago.
Following the Mass, the school
children, carrying American flags,
marched in procession to the church
grounds, and forming a circle about
the flagpole flying "Old Glory”, sang
partiotic songs in observance of
Constitution Day, which falls this
Friday, September 17th.
Also in commemoration of the
Federal Constitution, Hon. F. X.
Vance, local attorney, spoke on the
framing of the famous document,
telling of the framing of the Consti-
tution, it.- adoption v>y the states and
| of its importance through the 150
j years since in the history of the
' American people.
Beginning at eleven o’clock A. M.
dinner of barbecue, sausage, >alads,
pie and cake, iced tea and coffee
were served to over 800 people. Vis-
itors from Castroville, LaCoste, De-
vine, D’Hanis, Dunlay, San Antonio
and many neighboring counties were
seen lining the festive boards. Again
in the afternoon supper was served
to a large crowd.
Refreshments were sold on the
grounds and games for the amuse-
ment of the visitors were played. At
intervals during the day musical con- ; VILLAGE LIFE OR CITY GOV-

Why does our Constitution pro-
vide for a system of federal courts?
“There are in the Constitution,”
says Daniel Webster, “grants of
powers to Congress, and restrictions
on these powers There are also pro-
hibitions on the States. Some au-
thority must, therefore, necessarily
exist, having ultimate jurisdiction.
.. . The Constitution has itself . . .
established that authority ... by de-
claring that ’the Constitution and
the laws of the United States, made
in pursuance thereof, shall be the
supreme law of the land. • . . No
State law is to be valid which comes
in conflict with the Constitution, or
*ny law of the United States passed
In pursuance of it.
“But who shall decide this ques-
tion of Interference? To whom lies
the last appeal? This the Constitu-
tion Itself decides also, declaring
[Article III] that ’the judicial power
[of the Court] shall extend to all
cases arising under the Constitution
and laws of the United States.’
“These two provisions cover the
whole ground." concludes Webster.

We must not kid ourselves that a

We must face the fact that worth-
while municipal improvements are in-
separable from bond issues; that a
bonded debt makes the muncipality
permanent for it cannot be abolished
while bonds are outstanding as a
mortgage against the taxable prop-
erty within the municipality.
We must remember that the
amount of bonds a municipality can
issue is limited by the amount of tax-
able property within the corpora-
tion; that Hondo is possessed of no
great wealth; and that for these rea-
sons we should spend our bond mon-
ey on the most essential things first.

Corn shipments for the week were
fifteen cars, 13 loaded out from Hon-
do and two from Dunlay.
Other shipments were one car of
cotton seed and one of hay. Five
cars of used pipe were also loaded
out at Dunlay.
Three cars of gasoline and cne oar
of seed oats constituted the car-lot
receipts for the week here.
Eighteen bales of cotton the past
week brought the season’s shipments
up to 464 bales. The cotton crop is
practically gathered, and the prema-
ture opening of the late forming
bolls has caused some deterioration
in the quality of the staple.
this vital point should be tentatively
agreed upon as the first preliminary
step and at the same time a slate of
competent, men pledged to the pro-
gram should be selected for election
to carry it out.
If you are not on hand at the ap-
pointed meeting you can blame no
one but yourself for having no voice
in what is done.
