The Crolton system, as now per

The School Land 15111.
ItURNKT, March 31, 1883.
r To Uie Editor of the Mtateiman:
Dkau Sir I have watched the pro
gress of the school land bill with
inuch Interest, and have regretted to
see members of both houses endeavor
ing to engraft sectional and class fea
tures on the lull. Such legislators
ought to recollect that both sectional
and class Interests may change, but
' the Interest of the school children will
remain the same forever. And
should think that in legislating on
this subject that their interest, alone,
would be considered. It was for them
ii t' t- 'Lis' I n l was set apart. Other
lands have been donated for the ben
elit of actual settlers. And here let
mo make an assertion, and guaran
tee that I can be substantiated by
the records of the general land
otllce. It is this: That there hits
been more land stolen, more frauds
rra.cticed and false swearing in the
niue of actual settlers than ever was
thought of by Ham, Tullis & Co.,
leagues and lalors of land were do
nated to men that had no families.
Hundreds of hcadrights were issued
to men who never saw lexas, and in
almost every county in the state will
be found pre-emptions patented on
which there never was a house built
or a foot of land cultivated. This
demagoging idea that the capital'
ists will, monopolize our lands and
' ruin the state is contemptible. No
intelligent man really thinks this.
In fact, they know to the contrary
and to capitid we owe all the progress
we nave made towards developing
this grand empire. The height of
wisdom in our legislators would be to
. -r;iss such laws as would induce mil
ms of capital to flow
'' 'o the state, for it invaria-
brings with it intelligence and
..nterprise. Hut to return to the land
"bill. Would it not appear Hellish to
you for the stockmeu of the lan-
handle to demand a law for their in
terestV That would be detrimental
to that of nine-tenths of the popula-
' lion or ine state, it seems to me
that the only thing the legislature
should consider is how to create the
largest revenue for the free school
fund. And if these lands were, put
at a fair price and on long time at
low interest, would not come nearer
putting the poor man on an equality
.with the capitalist than by anv other
means that could be suggested? le
lieving that the school land is the im
portant measure that will lie Itcfore
this legislature, I hope there will 1
. 'ad a sutlicient amount of intelli
. ence and stitestmuiship to give us a
law that will redound to the best in
terest of the millions of children that
will one day demand its lienelits.

T Dallas Times.
Mr. Josselyn, the Lone Fisherman
of Texas, and the private secretary
of Governor Ireland, denies that the
f;overnor had anything to do with the
utter written to the San Antonio
Express, attacking the Statesman.
If Governor Ireland should tell Mr.
Josselyn to go forth and dig bait and
fish for the rest of the executive
term he would be doing the exact
thing. The only objection to this
cwtSe is that he might be charged
with having been bulldozed, and it is
well known that a man can run past
Ireland at two-minute gait, and ob
serve that he is not of the kind to be
htfllilozed. Anyhow, it were well to

adds his disgust at the composition of

declares "never represented Kepubh

We think, to say the least, that
whatever has brought about the lease
of the penitentiary, and so establish
ed it in spite of the will of the people
and the good of the . state, that that
cause is, in itself, one to be lamented
and even to be rebuked. "We cannot
believe an administration such as
Gov. Roberta controlled throughout
two terms, could have termi
nated with such disgrace upon
it as seems . to exist in
this penitentiary business, and
we therefore would lie glad to hear
from Gov. O. M. Roberts on the sub
ject. There surely was some just
cause for the lease, and some show of
propriety must have controlled it.
We e;innot satisfy ourseif that Gov.
Ireland, had he the disposition to do
so, has it in his power to remedy the
evil. The people call for a true in
wardness of the matter, and they

Death Red Conversion

The Austin special to the Gazette
which appeared in yesterday s issui
reports Air. Goree, the superintendent
of the penitentiaries, as having ex
pressed the opiuion that "under the
same rules and with the same powers
given the lessees.he could make money
and big money for the state out ot the
penitentiaries. What has come over
the spirit of his dreams that the
superintendent should have changed

address before the senate committee

he sees a possibility of losing a good

arriving at the conclusion that there
is "money and big money in the
management of the penitentiaries V"
Mr. Goree has made a faithful and
etlicient officer in the past, so far as is
known, and not a word of criticism
or disparagement has been spoken
against him, and hail he attended to
the duties of the othce and kept away
from the lobby the chances are that
he could have .retained the conlidence
of the public. Rut it is respectfully
submitted that having so emphatically
asserted as his solemn conviction that
the resumption of penitentiary man
agement and control by the state
would entail great pecuniary Joss he
is not the proper man to be entrusted
with the management when resump

is nothing but a death-bed conversion
in which but few people now-a-days
have any confidence. If Mr. Goree is
called upon to walk the plank, as he
should, it will be a lesson to those who
remain behind that the lobby is not
the proper place for an official to- be

The hieh rate of speed that can lie

locomotive engine of to-day. The
speed of the engine, he maintained,
could be inweased to between seventy
and eighty miles an hour without any

form speed of sixty miles an hour can
be accomplished with the same engine

Yesterday the whole editorial corps
of the Tost, with one or two visitors,
were sitting in the editorial apart
ments of the paper, conversing over
matters generally, when a lady ap
peared at the door, veiled and dressed
in black. She held a folded copy of
the l'ost in one hand. . After hesitat
ing for a moment, she advanced to
ward the desk of the city editor, and
at the same time holding out the pa
pel&said: "Did you write this arti
cle r"' pointing to an article that ap
peared the previous day, in which, her
name appeared rather prominently, lie
replied as politely as he could, "Xo,
iiiiidam." She insisted on his being
the party who did the writing, while
he was polite, but not positive that
she was in error. The other members
of the corps hod in the meantime be
come very quiet. She continued by
saying tliat that part of the article
which stated that Marshal Wichman
had threatened to arrest her was "a
lie," and she wanted it corrected, and
it must bo corrected, or, she contin
ued, "1 will kill the man to-morrow
who wrote it." The city editor as
sured her that no injustice whs in
tended, nor would tho l'ost, under
any circumstances, do any one injus
tice, especially if there was any chance
of any editor being killed for it. and
that he would take great pleasure in
giving her statement that no such
threat had been made, and also would
add her statement that Marshid Wich
man addressed her in a most polite
manner and just as he would talk to
a little girl, advising her to let the
matter rest until next week, when he
had no doubt she would recover her
property. She further said if any one
doubted her statement she would
take him to the marshal and prove
what she said. The C. E. did not
doubt it, and did not want to put her
to so much trouble.
Other members of the corps by this
time took part in the conversation.
The lady said said she was a lone
woman, but would defend herself
from being imposed on by any one.
She was again assured that there was
no intention of doing her an injustice,
and the C. E. hoped that she would
disabuse her mind of that idea, and he
was glad of having an opportunity to
make the correction in her behalf.

quantity 1W cents per gallon gov

about the usual annual consumption
of our country. The hardest experi
ence will therefore inevitably be felt
in 1SH4, when the government tax
will be due and required upon 40,
UUO.OOO gallons, which is equal to
nearly three year's consumption. In
1885 the tax will have to be paid on
upwards of 30,1)00,000 gallons more.
If these figures are correct, and doubt
less they are, as they were used by the

said 1 had a hole in my lung as big as
a hidf dollar. At one time a reort
was around that I was dead. 1 gave
up hope, but a friend told me of Dr.
William Ilall's liidsam for the lungs.
I got a bottle, when to my surprise, I
commenced to feel better, and to-day
I feel better than for three years past.

Dkau Sir Feeling deeply grateful for the
great beut-IHs which 1 have received from the
use of a very valuable article which has its
origin and home in our beautiful city, and
hoping that others who are afllicted as 1 have
been may find like relief from its use, I beg
the indulgence of a few lines hi your valuable
paper for the privilege ol coimiHinicuiig it to
you a brief statement of facts, for the benefit
of the inu titude of sufferers to be met with 011
every side. Many of my friends well know
that have been very severely alllicted with
heart dissea.se for a numberof years, and have
suffered from it as only those cau suffer who
have that disease; it reduced my strenth so
low that I could scarcely walk across my
room, and tho least exertion rendered me so
short-breathed that I dared scarcely move,
and life seemed very burdensome. I was
treated for my malady by the best physicians,
aud derived no benefit from Uieir treatment
or prescriptions until I was advised by my
family physician to use Hunt's Kemedy, as my
trouble was caused by inaction of my kidneys,
which affected very seriously the action of my
heart. I commenced taking it (having little
faith in it or any other medicine), and it has
helped me wonderfully, and I am now a great
deal better, aud have been ever since I began
Its use. In fact I have. taken no medicine that
has benefited me so greatly. My breathing is
easy, aud I have gained in strength so much
that I am able to do my housework. I cheer
fully recommend Hunt's Kemedy to all who
may be afllicted as I bave been, or who are
suffering from general debility and nervous
prostration. . Respectfully,
