ORANGE, TEXAS, JANUARY i, 1903-
IT IS MORNING.
It is the season of high and brave resolves., A new
year is born to us. Let us determine that every da\
shall constitute a l^af and that each of the three hun-
dred and sixty-five shall be spotlessly white and clean,
ami one vear hence we may catalogue one perfect \ol-
ume*in the library of our lives. The year will be what
we make it. The morning hours of the young year are
fraught with hope, and we must labor for its full and
perfect fruition.
(There is a golden promise for each and every day
and hour of the year nineteen hundred and three, and
every moment has its value. I f we succeeded in ac-
complishing much for a greater and better Orange, in-
dustrially, morally and intellectually, during the past
year, how much more may we do this year, with our
far greater opportunities and resources and armed with
a strong resolution to begin right and in the. early
morning and put in a vigorous year’s work.
There is something for every man, woman and child
to do. If nothing else, they can single out the good
points of the town and of each other and say a word
of praise or encouragement. It all helps. If one is
working for the good of the city, even though we may-
have no confidence in his methods, we should not
throw cold water upon his efforts, but give him a warm
hand-clasp and a cheery- word.
Orange needs many things, and the needs of the
citv will multiply with its growth. The people may be
depended upon to supply themselves with each separate
utility as the requirement arises.
Just now the rapid growth of the city has made it
necessary to provide another large school building and
to make some needed repairs on the central building.
This can be done without additional taxation, and the
people will not hesitate to vote the proper amount of
bonds for that purpose.
The Business League, we think, may be depended
upon to carefully guard and conserve the best interests
of the city, and we are quite sure that the Tribune will
not permit any opportunities to be overlooked.
The new school building, the big cotton factory, a
good road to Echo, a number of handsome new resi-
dences and a large increase in population, are already
in sight for the new year.
Everybody help and let ns make the year nineteen
hundred and three a banner year for Orange.
know it, almost, and the water hyacinth in the Sabine
will be one of its first harbingers. The Business
League should secure a share of fhat’ available govern-
ment appropriation arid go right After this* pest. !Nbw
is the time to fight it. The rivet should be cleared as
well as possible before the hyacinth puts forth its
spring reachers and begins multiplying in its amazingly
prolific manner.
A line dropped out of a leading editorial in these
columns yesterday caused the omission of mention of
the great Rein building and the new postoffke building
among the fine business structures erected dtirihg the
year 1962 in Orange. The article was necessarily short
and it was therefore impossible to make it comprehen-
sive. There are many good things we enjoy in Orange
which we can not tell you about in a single article, but
if you will give us your attention six days in the week
we shall convince you that we are duly mindful of,
them.
WITH OUR FRIENDS OF THE PRESS.
Happy New Year!
Did you write it 1902:
Orange could use a couple of hundred additional
residence houses to advantage just now.
The mayor of Austin will appoint a committee of the
city council to visit Texas cities and obtain pointers
on street grading and paving. ()f course, they will
come to Orange.
Booker Washington, after having a big time in
Houston, has gone to California for a lecture tour.
He took the Pullman palace cars out of Houston. It
‘isn’t every cullud pusson that can ride on a Pullman
sleeper in Texas.
The Southern Pacific promises to bring down the
largest party of actual homeseekers ever brought to
Texas on the first day of February.. Wonder if we
shall have that industrial literature to distribute
among them by that time?
great extent upon our own actions. Temperate and
cleanly habits is almost the entire secret of happiness.
They lead inevitably to all else desirable, even right-
eousness following in their train.
The government having appropriated money for the
elimination of the water hyacinth in these streams, is
there any especial reason why we should not take the
proper steps to secure a share of it for necessary work
on the Sabine? If so, we should like to hear it.
Good resolutions are in order today. It is a good
thing to make good resolutions, even though they
should be quickly broken. It is an evidence of good
intentions. The .sinner who considers a good resolu-
tion of no use is not beyond the hope of redemption,
but his salvation can not proceed from the heart out-
ward. ■ 1
Keep the stomach clean and wash your feet occa-
sionally, and the liver will do the rest and you will
Ipve a clear head, a good digestion and lo6k out upon
the world with rose-colored glasses. Here is the Sug-
gestion for a good new year resolution. Charity is the
greatest of the virtues, but it is impossible to be char-
itable or to see any good in the world if you suffer
with a disordered liver.
The San Antonio Light says there are some very fine
sober printers but they are not looking for a job. The
demand is greater than the supply.
* * *
The Port 1 avacaen is dead, having been absorbed by
the Calhoun County News. Editor Chapin, while pass-
ing up his valedictory, does not say what his future
programme is.
The Beaumont Journal states that it is ignorant of
the character of treatment “Kunriel” Adams received,
but his efforts to nullify congressional approval and
appropriation for the Sabine lake channel would indi-
cate the necessity of a porous plaster on his head.
* * *
The Kentucky papers state that an illustrious Ken-
tuckian has a bottle of whisky that is forty-two years
old. This may be true. Doubtless it has just been
presented to him by an admirer from another state—
Houston Chronicle.
Its obituary is now in order.
* * *
Tomorrow is the last day in which you can commit
vour deviltry—in 1902.—Beaumont Enterprise.
That must have been a comforting reflection for the
people of Beaumont. The Beaumont tough, like Poor
Lo, is good when he is dead, and the dead year can
hold no further mischief.
* * *
Beaumont will have to keep its weather eye on Or-
ange. That place is talking of erecting rice, paper and
cotton mills.—Austin Tribune.
It is just a little more than talk. The rice and paper
mills are already in operation, and a quarter of a mil-
lion dollar cotton factory has been secured, to be in
operation by September 1.
* * *
The conference of commercial bodies of Louisiana,
Mississippi ami Texas, called to meet in New Orleans
about the middle of January, will doubtless attract a
large attendance, and through an informal interchange
of views and methods of work will accomplish a great
deal of good. Anything like an organized effort to
promote colonization or obtain many manufactories,
however, would be futile. Each community must do
those things for themselves in their own style.—Lake
Charles American.
That is the truth, and Orange, realizing the fact, is
doing things.

Think of ft! Nine thousand Boers coming to Tex-
as. This is; enough to populate a good sized county
at one dash. They are to engage in fanning and
stock raising. Their lands have been selected along
the northwest borders of Texas and New Mexico.
They should he given the good hand of fellowship and
a warm welcome. They will find full opportunity
here to pursue their cours^, in peace and happiness.—
Lockhart Post.
These people will be \Velcome to Texas. They will
make good citizens. . Orange county could use a thou-
sand of these sturdy burghers in developing her rich
fanning lands. Something should he done to attract
them.

Our wee Consuello, sweet, and by virtue of ducats,
Duchess of Marlboro, is in Germany Princess of Min-
del heim. The Kaiser, to make her worthy of her ducal
destiny, lias given her the appellation of Ilochgeboren,
which means highborn. That settles it. We have lost
Whether it will lx* a happy new year depends to a j our sweet Consuello forever. She could not be saved
now even tho’ Queen Wilhelmina rename her Limbur-
ger.—Orange Tribune.
Oh. Easterling! lam surprised! I have exposed
this fraud and you fool the people. The first Duke of
Marlboro was made Prince of Mindelheim, but it pass-
ed with co-heirship to the Duke of Leeds family. It is
held by them and Consuello’s wealth can't get the title,
even if Emperor William was so disposed. San An-
tonio Light.
That’s just the way it goes. If vve say, anything I
about England the Light rounds us up, and if we quote ,,
scripture the Houston Chronicle jacks us up. Good
mind to quit playin’.

Congress has authorized construction of a channel
from the mouths of the Sabine and Neches rivers to
Sabine Pass and appropriated $125,000 with which to
begin the work. It is now announced that Colonel
Adams, who is merely a hired man employed t® super-
vise expenditure of money appropriated by congress,
has vetoed the congressional act approving the chan-
nel and nullified the appropriation'therefpr: If this
report be true Beaumont and Orange should abandon
further effort t<j> enlighten congress on the’advantages
and benefits which “would accrue from construction of
the channel, arid concentrate their energies toward in-
jecting a champagne jag under “Kunnel” Adams belt.
