A very £ibsiei|ial~S^ta vnll has beeh
constructed in front of the Cook building
and those adjoining, on Main street.
Preparations are making for continuing
this wall in front of Dr. Cutler’s store and
the other two buildings in the same block,
and the excavation is already finished.
We know who did this work in front of
the block above, but we hear the work in
front of the Cutler block is being done at
the expense of the city. It does not seem
possible that this is true, but we have it
upon good authority. At any rate Our
tax-payers will lose nothing by inquirihg
into the matter.
A petition was circulated yesterday ask-
ing John G. McElvaney, Esq., to run for
City Councilman in the Second Ward.
When we saw the paper a large number
of signatures were attached—nearly all
the leading business men and property
holders in fact in the city.
Mr. McElvaney is too well known in
this community to require any recofn-
mendation at our hands. That lie is a
straight-forward, honorable gentleman
everybody in Denison knows. He is a
man of uti lity who if elected would prove
a valuable acquisition to the Council.
We trust that he will comply with the
wishes of our citizens and accept the nom-
ination. If he does we are confident of

Block, Jett A Co., merchants of Sher-
man, purchased a bill of groceries in this
city last week, of E. J. Sauer, wholesale
grocer. Further comment is unnecessary.
Mr. Peirce who was in the city several
weeks ago taking sketches for a bird’s-eye
view of Denison has returned. The en-
gravings arrived last night and will be
delivered to subscribers at once.
We are informed that Capt. I. S. Thur-
mond has disposed of his library to Mr.
D. II. Patterson with a view of removing
to Houston, where he will have a larger
field tor the practice of his profession.
Dr. A- I). Chaney has fitted up a tasty-
office on Main street, nearly opposite D.
W. C. Davis’ hardware store, where those
needing his professional services will leave
their orders in the futurr.
At a meeting of the City Council Mon-
day evening J. K. Lyon was elected City
Attorney. He received nil the votes but
one, which was cast for W. B. Munson.
Mr. Stratton was not present.
They got up steam in the huge boiler at
the Lone Star Mills Monday, and the
powerful engine started off like a thing of
life, and run steady as a clock; not a
thump or rattle about it. It is a magnifi-
cent piece of machenery and was put up
tty the best engineer in the West.
The City Council has voted McConnell
$75 just for remaing quiet during the con-
test over the injunction matter. Col. Per-
sons put in a bill for $150 for services in
the same case which it was proposed to cut
down to $50, but finally referred to the Fi-
nance Committee. We suppose Streeper’s
tine set of furniture was estimated at $100.

St. Louis Route Eastward.—The
completion of the Missouri, Kansas and
Texas Railway fromthe North to Den-
ison, Texas, has opened up two first-class
all Rail Routes to St. Louis and the East.
At Vinitia, (364 miles from St. Louis), the
trains of this “Pioneer line from the
North” connect with trains from that new
and splendidly built line, the Atlantic and
Pacific Railroad, and at Sedalia, (189
miles from St. Louis), they connect with
the Missouri Pacific Railroad. Either
Route is a good one—thoroughly equipped
with all modern improvements—and lands
its passengers in St. Louis, tiie Metropo-
lis of the Great West, in time to connect
witli eleven through routes to the North,
South and East. The St. Louis Route is
destined to become the popular one, to all
points East. Passengers have a free
choice of routes over the Missouri, Kan-
sas and Texas Railway; via Vinitia and
the Atlantic and Pacific Railway, or via
Sedalia and the Missouri Pacific Railroad-
