of the meeting in Dallas of promin-

I movement to secure the adoption
of the Wiilacy bill, or something
similar, by the next legislature, that
wilt give equal right* to the anti*
and pros in the regulation of the
liquor traffic, tav*:
“It will show the people just what
the contention i». It’s not an anti-
prohibition movement at all. It is
a democratic protest against undem-
ocratic discrimination. This com-
mittee of leading democrats believes
the people ought to have the option
• or or against prohibition. They
believe the present law is unfair,
because it denies the people that
option, and tney demand equal and
exact treatment of both sides by the
law. When the people understand
the question they will indorse this
Of course the present law is un-
fair. Every incorporated town
should have the authority to regulate
its own affairs. If the majority
want prohibition let them have it;
it they believe high license will re-
sult m the best interests of the com-
munity let them have that. This
would be democratic and just to all.
A DENI80B W0MAH WHO IS IITER-
ESTED IV THE IMPERIAL HOUSE-
HOLD OF IU8BIA
Oorreapoadaaet with th« American Min’s-
lar—The Unwritten Law — Address the
Russian Ambassador — Two Married
Oonples Who hare Followed Her Advioe
hpre had Heir* Born to Them.
The readit g wo>ld is well aware
of the interest that has been attach-
ed to the imperial fam'ly of Russia,
owirg to the fac* that five girls have
been born to the royal couple and
no heir. It was even intimated at
one time, that the csar would follow
the example of Napoleon the Great
whe cinrorood Joseph'ne because .he
bore him no heir. According to tfae
Romanoff dynasty, if as heir is
not bora to the imperial household,
then the aceptre passes to the first
heir born to >he brother* of *he c*tr,
and if there it no issue then the,
sisters Would be in line of succession.
Recently an heir was born dead
to the royal couple. Sensati' nal
reports aay that the matter had
weighed so heavily on the mind of
the emperor that he was determined
ti put her away. Napoleon mar
ried an Austrian arctiduchess who
bore him one heir who was after-
wards king of Rome but died at an
early age ; why not the empiror fol-
low suit. It is stated, however, that
tbe csar is too loyal a husband and
father to play the Napoleon role,
A celebrated German specialist,
of Vienna, Dr. Scbenck, declared
that if a certain regime was followed
in the manner of living, that the de
sired sex could b* controlled. He
-lived near the lmptrid court but did
not make good hi* assumption.
A prominent and well known ladv
of Denison, and apparently well
balanced, hat declired that she has
solved the problem of controlling
the aex ard if the ruler of all the
Russians will foil >w her directions
that an heir will bless the imperial
household. She has demonstrated
the correctms* of her position right
here in Deniaort. Inspired with a
desire to benefit the imperial family,
the addressed a letter to the Ameri-
can miniater at St. Petersburg. Tbe
American minister returned the let-
ter stating that it was an unwr t'e'n
law that he was debarred from for
warding her letter to the czar, that
the proper source to go to was the
Russian minister at Washington.
The communication with the secret
was then forwarded to him and he
has replied that he would direct the
letter to the proper channel.
The lady brought the correspond-
ence to the writer’s home one day
the past week, and consulted the
writer’* wife on matters pertaining
to 1*. She may be hallucinated, but
she is a very sensible, educated
lady. She refused to divulge her
secret at present, but may further
on. Two persons 1.1 Denison have
followed her advice and male btirs
have been born to them.
The editor of the Rush Springs
(I. T.) Landmark has been waiting
up the business men in rhyming dog-
gerel. He winds up a column of
this stuff with the following on the
local parson: “Rogers, our good
Methodist preacher, all believe there
is no better teacher. The bible
truth* he does tell, and warns us to
shun that awful hell.”

motion, nothing to get out of fix. The

Atterney Jim Kone it candidate
for re-election to the position of city
attorney. Mr. ’'one is perfectly
willing to go F .fore the public on
his record of ,oe past year, that is
the way in which we like to hear
any candidate talk. As the people
elect him, it i* tor them to judge of
his stewardship and govern them-
selves accordingly. Mr. Kone
claims that he has made as few mis-
takes as tny person who has ever
held the position of city attorney
and points to his record with pride
in that direction. Jim Kone is one
of the brightest youog atto eys in
Deni-on, in his character are com-
bined mental traits of a high order.
His judgment is quick, clear and
usually accurate. He wishes tor re-
election because be has served tbe
city well. He courts a close scrutiny
of bis official acts. He believes that
the voters will stand by him and re-
turn him to office even by a larger
majority than bia splendid victory
one year ago. Tim courts an open
field with any candidate.
According to Austin State Topics
there are in the governor’s office

draw a salary nearly as large as the

Treasurer Robbin’s office he hasfi

cent salaries. Stephens, the comp-
troller, Curl, secretary of state and

buildings, all have relatives holding
good positions. And these men are
all candidates for re-elecbon.

Last Monday the news was re-
ceived that diplomatic rrlationa were
seveted between Japan and Russia.
Japan got tired of waiting tor Rus-
sia’s reply to their demand*, and
called their ministt r home, and Rus-
sia followed suit. Monday night
tbe first round was pulled t ££, by
tbe war fleet of the Japane$y sud-
denly attacking the Russian war
vessels in the toads off Port Arthur,
about midnight. Two Russian bat-
tle ships were torpedoed and beached
at the entrance of the harbor. Tbe
lapanese vessels then disappeared.
Tuesday off Chemulco, tbe Russian
cruiter V.riag was captured and
tha gunboat Koreitz burned. It ts
also reported that tbe Japarese
seized Masamplo Sunday, and will
fortify the port, as it controls tbe
Korean channel. Another report it
that the Japanese captured three
Russian steamers with 2,000 troops
on board, near Asan, in Korea, aid
had blown up a bridge on the Man
chur^an railway. A large Japanese
force landed at Seoul. A special
cable to tbe Herald described the
visit of a Japanese naval cornmader
to Port Arthur in the guise of a
menial. It was said that he discov-
ered tbe weak places in tbe Russian
naval and military forces and that
immediately tbe night attacks were
made. A Tokio dispatch says the
Japanese baVe captured five Russian
commercial steamers, the Ekater-
intoslay, Moukden, Russia, Argun
and Alexander, in Korean and ad-
; acent waters at various times since
Saturday by small cruisers. Some
of the steamers are rich prizes.
China is rapidly massing her troops.
She already baa 80,000 men on the
border of Manchuria. There is said
to be no war eotbusiam among tbe
lower classes in Russia.
London, Feb. 11.—(Special Ca-
ble Copyright, 1904, by W. R.
Hearst )—One ot the most conser-
vative commercial houses in the city,
with immense interests in the Orient,
has received a message in cipher
from its representative in Cbefoo
that the Japanese have captured
Port Artl ur and destroyed the en-
tire Russian fleet.
It was stated that the Japanese
army first blew up the railroad titty
miles from the coast to cut off relief,
then carried by assault tbe promon-
tory overlooking tbe city and harbor.
Mounting heavy aitillery here they
shelled the city and harbor, driving
the Russian fl?et out into the sea,
where the Japanese battleships and
cruisers met them. In the resulting
sea fight the Russian ships were ail
either captured or destroyed. The
Japanese then attacked and captured
Port Arthur, taking possession of
the immense stores ot coal and pro-
vision*. It was also reported that
the Japanese had planned explosions
all along tbe line of the Siberian
Railway and that thus the Czar’s
army in the Far East was isolated.
While this sfartling message is
given only on the authority of the
London merchants, it is in a measure
corroborated by the Reuter dis-
THE BALTIMORE FIRE,
Tbe most destructive conflagra-
tion that has visited this country since
the great Chicago fire in 1871 de-
stroyed almost the entire ousinesa
portion of Baltimore last week. The
fire broke Olit about 11 o’clock Sun-
day morning in a big wholesale dry
goods bouse in the business center
of the city. A terrible wind was
blowing and the local fire depart-
ment was powerless to check the
furious flames. What were sup-
posed to be fire proof buildings
melted down like wax. The fire
departments from Philadelphia,
Washington and New York were
sent to their assistance and at one
time during Sunday night four hun-
dred streams were playing op tbe
fire with no apparent effect. About
noon Monday the wind shifted and
the fire waa gotten under control.
Blocks of tbe finest buildings were
dynamited to check the ravages of
the fire. One hundred and forty
acres were burned over, and the to-
tal loss is estimated at from $150,-
000,000.00 to $200,000,000.00 and
60,000 people were thrown out of
employment. Congress has voted
$2,000,000.co to assist tbe stricken
city. It is rematkable that, so tar
aa known, no lives were lost, due no
doubt, to tbe fire starting in the day
The new Houston directory show*
that the city has a population of 66,-
113; this by actual count, not qpti-
mated as has been the custom with
directory compilers. The increase
tbe past eighteen months, that is
since the preceding directory
was published, was 7,910. Seventy-
two passenger trains arrive and de-
part every twenty-four hours. The
taxable values ot the city amount to
over $40,000,000. Tbe bonded
indebtedness is $3,399,000.
Several hundred handsome embroidered ones, value 25c and 50c,
some slightly imperfect, very cheap at 15c and 25c.

The popular Texas directory pub-

ney, have just completed a new
directory for the City of Houston
which is pronounced the most com-
plete work of the kind they have
ever gotten out, which is saying a
great deal. It is the result of an ex-
perience in this line of work in
Texas for over a quarter of a cen-
tury. Their directories now cover
about everything that a citizen or
traveler could desire. It is about
time Denison had a new directory
The last one, gotten out by an At-

many names spelled wrong, and

be pleased to see Morrison & Four
ney come up here and give us a

an enquirer has reason to expect to
find by reference to its pages.

he wont need much pocket change
in circulating among the dear peo-

valuable thing to influence votes di-
rectly or indirectly. This shut* off
cigars and drinks and even candy for
the babies. He can’t even con-
tribute to building a new church for
fear it might be interpreted as being
a trick for getting the support of the

THE OOOK DOUBTY DEOISIUH FAR-
Austin, Tex., Feb. 8.—Since the
decision ot the Court of Criminal
Appeals in the Hey man, case, from
Cooke county, in which it was held
that a local option election where
several precincts were bunched wee
void, the attorney-general has been
receiving a great many letters asking
what should be done in counties
where elections bad been held under
similar circumstances. The attor-
ney general is reported to have said
that these questions have occasioned
him more embarrassment than any-
thing he bad yet had to advise about.
In some instances the validity ot the
election has been passed upon by
the Court of Civil Appeals and the
election held to be valid. Now that
the Court of Criminal Appeals has
held exactly to the contrary it is em-
barrassing to the attorney general to
have to advise as to which ot the
conflicting opinious should be fol-
lowed. But, since the Court of
Criminal Appeals ia the court which
necessarily must pass upon the legal
ity of convictions for violations of
the local option law, and as that
court has held that the elections
were not valid, but absolutely void,
the attorney general has advised that
where the elections were held under
the same circumstances a* prevailed
in Cooke county, na shown in the
Heyman case, the county officer*
should treat the election as being
entirely null and issue a license for
the retailing ot liquors to any one
who would comply with the law
with reference to paying tax and
giving bond.—Special to the Dallas
