provisions of the civil rights bill iu re-
fusing to sell a ticket to William li. Da-

titled to a seat in the theatre olsowhero

violated the law inasmuch as its' prohi-
bition of or discrimination us to color
did not apply to theatres which yero
managed simply as private "business
speculative and subject to such regula
tions as to admission as their proprietors
might deem proper to impose. Tillotson

Grand Jury Davis has beeu before it

of the Indian tribes in their present

and to ruin which next to the white
man has been their greatest bane."

When I left your beautiful city by the
sea the first place I stopped at was with
Mr. E. J. jfickorson sixteen miles from
Corpus. Mr. Nickcrson is one of tho
most hospitable men in the country and
the prince of good livers. Here the
weary traveler will always find a resting
place for himself and animals. I would
like to give au extended notice f bin
ranch but I will have to defer it to some
iuluro occasion. Sutlico it to say at tuis
timo that Mr. Nickcrson has one of the
handsomeail places on tho Nueces. Ev-
erything in and around tho rcsidonce
is kopt scrupulously clean and neat. He
has system in oyorything. Mr. Nickcr-
son is a bachelor. (The ladies ought to
inako a note of this. ) You may bet your
last dollar that his mother was a model
housekeeper and a New Englauder at

Mclntyrc's. Mr.M. was just through shear-
ing. While there I saw some fine bucks
grazing around tho house. Theso wore

flocks1 arc well improved and ho keeps
adding to their number ovory year.
While ithere ho told mo that ho sold his
wool this year for the highest prico that
was paid up to date. Mr. M. is com-
fortably situated. lie keeps his flocks
of 4000 head on his own land aud ho is
iat poaco with all tho world. Tie owes
no man a dollar and his sheop could not
bo bought for less than five dollars per
Tho next ranch above is Mr. George
Wright's. -Mr. Wright was busy shear-
ing at the time and when I drove up
