When street jugglers, patent medicine
men, and Ilka characters give open air
performances, the marshal should insist
that the streets be made passable for
vehicles, without the danger ot running
over and maiming tome man, woman or
child. The Diamond King held the
streets for over two weeks, and when his
hours were announced, it was impossible
to move through his dominion, as there
was a solid wall of spectators that blocked
the way. And it was the same way Tues-
day and Wednesday, when the street per-
former held forth on Austin avenue.

your headquarters at the Delmonico res-

cost you *5 cento per meal; and then if you
remain over night, Mr. Clark, the pro-
prietor, can furnish you with nice sleep-

There is a movement looking to the
lablishment of additional gas works in
Denison. The projectors are confident
that they can furnish a better and cheaper
quality of gas than we are at present
using. The matter is in the hands of
Mr. Pierce, vice-president of the Water
Pierce company, Mr. E. T. Hathaway, of
this city, and Mr. Wardon, patentee ot a
new cheap system of works which forms
superior gas from naptha. When It is
definitely settled that the new works will
be built, we shall state what is proposed
by the company. At any rate we think
duff a little competition is needed in that
direction just at the present time, and we
hope that the works may be built.

The question as to who will succeed
Postmaster Daugherty, was settled at the
National Capitol, Monday. The name of
Major Maughs was sent to the Senate for
confirmation. The appointment of Major
Maughs will take no one by surprise, as
it was an event torshadowed several
months ago. It ia eminently proper that
the Major should succeed Postmaster
Daugherty, aa it is the only thing that he
has asked at the hands ot our people for
his services in behalf of the Federal
Court. When It was known that the
Major was an aspirant for the position of
Postmaster, our people went to work
earnestly in his behalf, and the action at
Washington met with universal approval
at home. Major Maughs is a thoroughly
disciplined business man, and we believe
that he will conduct the Postoffice in a
manner that will leave no ground for
complaint, or cavil. He has this much on
his side, that he ia Postmaster by the
grace of the people of Denison, irrespec-
tive of politics, which has not always fal-
len to the lot of his predecessors.
In parting with Postmaster Daugherty
we have only good words to say. We
doubt very much if Denison ever had a
Postmaster who has worked more assidu-
ously In the performance of his duty than
Mr. Daugherty. He is a young man, but
has proved himself capable under all cir-
cumstances, and will carry with him into
retirement, the good wishes of all, if we
may except a few sore-head republicans
who have been clutching for Charley’s
position ever since he put on the ermine.

There is a fortune in store for the man
who will engage in the manufacture of
cedar buckets. It can be made profitable
in Denison, we have the material at out
very doors, and a market for all that can
be made. There are magnificent cedar
brakes in the Chickasaw nation. The
writer has tramped through them time
ane time attain, with a gun on his shoul-
der, and wondered why the trees were
not utilised. Let some man commence
on a small scale, and employ four or five
good coopers. A cedar bucket cannot be
purchased for less than 75 cento and $1 to
frequently paid. Here is an industry
that was probably never thought of, but
any person wjio will think for a moment
can readily see that there ia big money
in It. The tools of a cooper are very
simple and Inexpensive, and the machin-
ery win not coat much. Who will start
the cedar bucket boom?
The description of the new federal
courthouse, to be erected in Denison, as
given by the Evening Journal, is one
of the most enterprising features of jour-
nalism that has appeared for some time,
and has produced a universal smile. The
United States Government is not in the
habit of- putting up $500,000 buildings,
not even in cities that number ten times
more inhabitants than we do. It we get
a $ jo, 000 building we will be in great
luck. The tact that Paris will have a U.
S. Court building, and that there are
three bills pending in Congress looking
to the opening ot the Territory at an
early dav, is to be considered. It would
not be very advisable on the part of Con-
gress to throw away the magnificent sum
ot $500/100 on a building that would be
almost worthless should the status ot the
Territory change. And then we haven’t
got the federal court yet; before we shout
let us get (Mitot the woods. As a well
known physician remarked, after reading
the Journal, “the fellow who wrote that

A Lucky Man.
Several weeks ago Mike Riely, who is
employed at the Parnell saloon, lost $140
under singular circumstances. The
money was lost, Mike made a fruitless
search for days, and finally abandoned all
hopes of recovering what had cost him
weeks of hard labor. On Tuesday a
carriage with two horses stopped at the
Parnell corner, and one of the parties
alighted] and taking from his pocket a
roll ot bills stated that it was found in his
carriage several weeks ago, and he was
confident that the owner was the party
who brought the beer to his carriage.
Mike stated the amount of the money,
and it was returned to him.
He recollects now that at the time the
parties called for the beer, he was
holding in his hand the pocket book con-
taining the money. He laid the book in
the carriage and forgot to take it up when
the emnty beer glasses were returned to
him. The carriage drove off, and H was
not until the gentlemen had crossed the
river that the pocket book sms discovered
in the bottom of the carriage. Mike is a
lucky man. The gentleman who returned
the money is a cattle man in the Terri-
A boy by the name of John Winkle,
stumbled and sprained his ankle Wednes-
day night on Armstrong avenue. The
lad eras unable to walk, and appealed to
a man to take him home, or inform his
parents. The man stated that he would
go for the parents, but never returned.
Little Johnny bore his pains bravely for
nearly thirty minutes, and finally dispair-
ing ot help, cried out lustily, and a lady,
Mrs. Brooks, lifted him in her arms and
carried him into the house, and then went
and notified the parents, who took their
boy home. What are we to think of the
man who left the little boy to his fate?
What if it had been a cold night? Such
men are unfit to live in a Christian com-
munity, and should go and mingle with

THE WATER WORKS.
The Bond Hied—The Problem Solved—
The Work Bogina.
During the past two years perhaps
twenty-five columns of “water works”
matter have been published in our local
papers, yet the city is dependent upon
the upper elements for its water supply.
Prediction after prediction has failed of
verification and the city left as dry as
ever. But we now have every reason to
believe that water works is in the near
future and that hope deferred will no
longer make the heart sick.
The contract for water works made
and entered into with Messrs. Bullock &
Co., of New York, has been complied
with so far. Mr. Fuller, the engineer of
the works, and agent of the New York
firm, is In the city and has filed the
necessary bond of $10,000. The bond
stipulates tor the completion of the
works in eight months. The engineer is
of the opinion that an abundant supply
of water can be easily obtained, and as-
sures the public that as soon as the neces-
sary number of feet of mains and piping
can be ascertained, it will be forthcom-
ing! together with all machinery and
equipments needed. Preliminary work
is now progressing and an air of satisfac-
tion mantles every brow. The terms of
the franchise are certainly as favorable as
could be desired, and promises to fill
the “long-felt want*’ of a water supply.
At the meeting of the council Thnrs-
das night, Mr. Tilden, agent of the Mon-
umental Bronze company, pressed his
claims before that body to have them
purchase a tablet and place over the re-
mains of Justin Raynal. We hope that
the council will not consider the proposi-
tion from Mr. Tilden, and we will give
our reasons. We have, in our city, mar-
ble works, the proprietors have been citi-
zens of Denison tor a number of years,
they own property and pay taxes, they
spend their money at home, they turn
out as good and cheap work as can be
found in the state, and if a monument is
to be placed over the remains of Mr.
Raynal, let them have the benefit of the
work, and not a Connecticut firm that is
2000 miles away.
Quail have been more plentiful in the
neighborhood of Denison the present
season than fora number of years, and
shooting seems as good as ever. They
enjoy immunity from the gun of the or-
dinary sportsman, who cannot kill their
bird on the wing, but sometimes “pot”
them on the ground. There are but few
wing shots in Denison. We have them
on the list, and they are, Messrs. Yocom,
Leaverton, Enoch Hughes, J.T. Munson,
Major Maughs, Col. Lampkin, Horace
Miller, Tom Ellis, Tom Dollarhide,
Wells, (cotton buyer.) With a city of
11,000 people, we only have that number
of crack wing shots. They are only
“occasional sportsmen” but when they
get among the birds they make a holo-
caust to poor Bob White, Were they
persistent sportsmen they would not leave
birds enough for breeding purposes.
A (Jhange of Base.
Scarcity of water bids fair to work the
ruin of Sherman. She has no water, and
what is more, can’t get any. With good
water facilities the probability is that
Denison would never have been built.
The cotton seed mill of Sherman seri-
ously contemplates pulling up stakes and
coming to Denison; insufficient water is
what has impelled them to this step. One
of the leading members ot th« enterprise
was in Denison a few days since, and the
object of the visit was to see what ar-
rangements could be made to come here.
It is an event, just as certain as the
rising and setting of the sun, that Deni-
son will have at an early date a cotton
seed oil mill, and if the gentlemen in
Sherman are wise they will occupy the
field while the time is so opportune.
Come to Denison, where, like Aaron, you
touch the earth and the pure lim'pid
water gushes out in thick rills. No lack
ot water here, gentlemen.

that St. Louis girls must be particularly

The Marriage of Jamea Leeper to Miae
This is the era of matrimony, and our
young people seem bent on taking their
chances in what the bard has pleased to
style, “the lottery of life.” This season,
youthful couples seem to be the ones who
have surrendered to the gentle and heroic
passions, called love.
On Wednesday evening Mr. Jas. Leeper
and Miss Nettie Bennett were united in
marriage at the residence of the bride’s
parents on Sears street. Rev. Atkin of
the Episcopal church was the officiating
clergymen. The parents of the bride
seem reluctant to have any particular no-
tice in the papers, consequently we have
not learned the toilet of the fair bride,
which is an essential feature ot marriage
notices. Miss Mattie Bell Cook and
Henry C. Platter assisted the young
couple through the trying ordeal
After the ceremony a large number of
friends called to tender congratulations,
among the number were: Mr. and Mrs.
Sam Hanna, Mrs. Dr. Acheson, Mr. and

There were a great number of useful
and beautiful presents received.
The bride and groom are well known in
Denison. Our people have a particular
affection for the bride, who has grown
from childhood to womanhood in our
midst. Miss Nettie has alwas been spoken
of as a young lady possessed with a most
lovely disposition, and has been mnch
sought after in society circles. The
writer never spoke a word to the bride in
his life, although we have seen her fre-
quently for the past nine years, but some
how or other she always attracted our at-
tention and excited our respect by her
modest demeanor, and our impressions
were always verified by the conversation
of others who were her intimate friends.
We congratulate Mr. Leeper in securing
such a prize to brighten his pathway
The groom is a young man of excellent
reputation and stands high in this com-
munity. He is an exception to the gen-
eral run of young men in this city, of
whom not one in ten is fit to assume the
responsibilities of married life. He has
good business habits and is decidedly
moral in his deportment.
The bride and groom have our earnest
congratulations for a life of unalloyed
happiness, and we know that our people
will join the Gazetteer in good wishes

Randell objected to the bond, stating
that in his opinion the bond was not good

that he did not know the parties on the

of bonds in Texas given by parties out-
side the state. #
Mr. Hathaway being referred to stated
that he had given a bond ot that sort.
The mayor stated that the First National
bank had inquired of their correspondent
in New York as to the responsibility of
the parties on the bond, and had received
a reply that the bond was all right.
Randell still contended that a bond
outside the state was not good; that it
would not be good in our courts; that
New York decisions go all sorts of ways
and that nothing could be collected

wrecked. One stormy, sleety night the
mail car caught fire while the train was
running at the rate of forty miles . an
hour. The bell rope had burned off be-
fore the fire was discovered, and the con-
ductor could not signal the engineer, who
was not aware of the fire, to stop. Get-
climbed up to the top of the icy car,
and in the darkness cautiously crept
along until be reached the engine, and
the train was saved from a terrible acci-
dent, which must have been attended
with a heavy loss of life.
THE FKEU3HT OFFICE.
We deign to call this No. 3
Because that would be proper,
But ere you cease to read you’ll see
That something happened to “stop her.”
Such bad weather and so many beaux,
Sweeping, cleaning and pies to bake,
But then, as everybody knows,
Happy I’ll be when I marry Jake.
Business about the railroad seems
Somewhat dull of late,
And there are not so many teams
Around to haul away freight.
Just between seasons we always hear
“This must be expected,
“But joyful spring will coon be here,
“Then all will be corrected.”
We notice that some changes few,
Not in the office, but in the crew,
Were made since writing No. 1.
Aside from this, there’s nothing new,
And so I’m tired and sleepy too,
(O, my, this to but too true)
I know *twill not displease you
If I should gently say adieu.
Splendid 8uooess of tea Young Ladies’
The efforts of the young ladies in be-
half of the poor of Denison was one of
the most gratifying charitable events that
has ever taken place In our city. The
young ladies did not appeal to our people
In vain. No similar event has ever met
wifh such a warm,hearty response. From
an early hour until nearly midnight the
latge room was thronged with ladies and
gentlemen, who contributed their best
efforts to make the supper a success. The
object of the supper appealed to the sym-
pathies of our people and a more general
gathering has not taken place for yean.
It was a happy idea on the part ot our
young ladies, and as happily executed.
Many poor people will be made happy by
the efforts of the Young Ladies’ Cook-
ing Club. This, we understand, was only
the first of a series of similar events
which will take place for similar pur-
poses. The tables were in charge of the
1st—Mn. Ledrick, assisted by Misses
Norma Bettes and Sallle Dewey.
2d—Mn. Hathaway and Mrs. Dr.
Nagle, assisted by Miss Mattie Bell Cook.
3d—Mrs. Lee Kone and Mn. J.’ P.
Waples, assisted by .Miss Alice Gilbert.
4th—Mn.. Darlington and Mn. Dr.
Feild, assisted by Misses Caddie Lingo
and Roaa Leeper.
5th—Misses Ada Aldrige and Alice
6th—Mn. Westheimer, assisted by
Misses Lillian Blood and Gertie Epp-
7th—Mn. Sam Hanna ahd Mrs. R. P.
Hibbard, assisted by Misses Mattie Vena-
ble, Emma Moselr and Sallle Little.
The proceeds realized at each of the
separate tables to not exactly known, but
the most was taken in at Mn. Westhei-
mer’s table, the amount being $23.50.
The receipts from all the tables combined,
and the bouquet and cake, were $154.47,
before the supper the young ladles had
collected $80.88. Their expenses they
hope to cover with $30.
The young ladies extend their thanks to
all for their kind patronage. It to
thought that no city can rival ours in a
charity cause. The young ladles who
solicited, say that each one tried to out
do the other in helping the needy poor.
The young ladles, with the Gaz-
zettebr, return thanks to Mr. Coffee,
for gas fixtures and gas, Mr. Charles
Daugherty for use of hall, Murray’s
Steam Printing House tor dodgers and
advertising, Mr. Welsh, for heating the
hall, and if we were to go into detail we
would have to enurmerate so many that
our space would be small for other items.
All the ladies and gentlemen who so
kindly assisted the young ladies, will
please accept their thanks, and if the Y.
L. C. club can in any way return the
favor, it to their request that you do not
hesitate to call on them.
Blessings upon the young ladies for their
noble efforts in behali of the poor. In
the face of one of the moat pitless storms
that has ever visited our city, they went
from place to place soliciting subscrip-
tions to give the supper. If there to a
place of future rewards the young ladies
will wear a-crown of glory and play on a
harp that to stndded with the moat pre-
cious gems of the new Jerusalem. We
are proud of the young ladies of Denison.
Again, we would remark, God bless
them, and may they all catch good hus-
Mias Lillian Blood, a young lady ot
extraordinary beauty and good sense, by
a popular vote was declared the beat
cook, and received a handsome bouquet.
Mr. Wilroot Saeger “took the cake” as
the ugliest man.

I confess that I feel but scant sympathy
for the denunciation of trade unions and
workingmen’s guilds which we sometimes
hear from pulpits where high-salaried
ministers preach to selfish and pampered
wealth. If capitalists unite to enrich
themselves; it they, by combinations and
rings, determine what the poor man must
pay for hto fuel, his light and his bread,
and the poor man sees a few men
richer every day from their power

those of hto family are reduced to a min-
imum, shall he not combine to force from
capital a fair remuneration for hb labor?
