Thero lm been too mueh unitislilla
bio prestiiiqilion In this matter, if
cither tho penitentiary boaid or the
lessees presumed absolutely that (his
legtslatuie would apiiove (his lease,
whether it appealed to their bast judg
ment or not.
The lease provides that it shall be
subject to approval or i ejection by
this legislature, and such a provision
was needless If tho argument of the
distinguished senator is sound and
conclliidvo on Uiequesllon.
I believe the board has made a gi lev
oiih mlstalco in the extension of this
le.tse, and while their motives weio
good 1 am inclined to doubt their
judgment, and In doing so, don't con
sider myself guilty of treason to my
party or my state j a dlllereneo of
opinion based upon honest convictions
suen as outs are, is Healthy to the body
polltlo. and Is the greatest safeguard to ' to r,m tho penitentiary exclusively a

The senator eonlnlalns that each one I H"J nioney In It the state shouli

out reason for the faith that is In hint: ' PWl'w-tlon for the gieat expense of con
this only moves that the lease is hiis-! Yiellon. Tlio margin ol prollt to tho
teiihon that the only mntcilal difl'er
oncein the physical condition of a
convict and a free man Is that the one
gels wages and tho other don't; under
this Impression they commit crimes
which they would not commit if not
Inured to tho sight of convicts. Again,
many men come Io Texas who have
been trained to railioad woik, and
don't know tho dllleience between a
cotton btalk and a coklebuir bush.
These men Hud the gravel tialns filled
with convict labor, and fiequeiitly be
come themselves charges on tho slate
I honestly believe that instead of
twenty thousand a year, that the state
can operate tlio penitentiaries on tlio
same basis as piovided by the lease
and clear over a million in the Illteen
years, or course, the stale don't want

There are few Joya in this life here
that can excel those ecstatic moments
when you bco your enemy, .who has
partially learned, has acquired tho art
of going quite tanldly but lias not
learned that equally necessary art, J
mean stopping. A skater will go
ahead as fast as a boy to tlio dentist to
have his first tooth out, but it Is as hard
for him tostoji as it is tlio inlet est on
the national debt. When occasion
requires hint to stop ho naturally rises
a bit on the hind rollers and then the
fun begins. His heels shoot ahead,
his head lies back, he describes cir
cles with his arms in the air.' lie

won't stay, Thej rattle on the floor
like tin thunder in a theater. All the
time he isuolng over backward. He
throws ids stomach out. ho bends his

a crash like a ten-strike in a bowling
alloy all of him lies on the floor in as
wrecked a condition a it'is possible to

Tlio llrlde Paid the Expenses,

One night last week, "Boss" Ham
ilton, son of Mr Istae Hamilton, at
tho'Junetlon, procured half a dollar for
tho avowed purpose of hiring n horse
to go to a party at Joe Xewland's. In
stead, however, he went to the house
of Mr. George Moore, where his dul
cinea, Miss Duckie Jennings, was slav
ing, and having previously arranged
with her to fly with him to Tennesseo
and become his bride, they
were soon in a vehicle and
oil' for Danville, whero they
took the train for Xew Jtiver, a station
on tlio 0. S. It. It. Auiving there, a
magistrate did the business for them,
and on Krldny night last they returned
lo the Junction. Tho groom was a
few days under seventeen, while the
bride Is a pictty and well developed
maiden of sweet sixteen. We learn
that the expenses of the trip were de
frayed by the latter, tho boy having
only the fifty cents Ids mother had
given hint. His parents have refused
him the house, and we aie told that
his mother is almost Inconsolable at
tho action of her baby boy.
ccpllhlo to that many oblecllons. and
cannot bo an argument In lis favor;
thero aro more reasons why It should
bo rejected than have yet been given
why It should be rntUled. The gentle
man warnmu that if this issue is ic
Jeeted wo will burden tho state and
bring down upon ourselves tho curses
of our constituency. There W wherein
I dlllbr fronv liliu, and, on tho contra
ry, see the same diio results flowing
from the ratification. And 1 believe
that the neonlo will not onlv hold tlio '
administration tespoiihlblo which made j
tho contract, but hold to equnl icspon-i
nihility the administration which had '
control of It, and then tut Hied it.
No one can dodge tlio question, for
tho people me watching, and they will j
not oo Himsiieu witu any or their ser
vants who avoid the issue.
1 have no lollection to mako upon
thu superintendent or tho lessees.
They are all satisfactory to me, and I
belluvc them to be gentlemen woithv
r confidence and respect, but 1 have
nuver believed In personal politics, and
whh a principle Involved am no res
spector of persons, but will go far
enough to say that I coincide with the
good opinion of tliem as expressed by
the senator from Harrison.
Now I shall proceed to the discus
sion Justus if their lease had never u
celved the endorsement of gieat and
good men, and 1 shall contend that It
is wrong In principle and that its
terms ate unfavorable to the state.
In tint first place r would oppose Its
ratlllcatlon oven Ha financial success
for the state, for tho manner of Its let
ting was n palpable violation of a plain
statute and exceedingly unfair.
Tho law roqqlied that tho leaso
should be made after duo advertise
ment, and this statute has not been
complied 1th. Tho bo.nd advot Used
a little over one-halt of the convicts,
and these to be worked as tho most
unproductive branch of convict labor,
apd In thciradveitlsciucut they never
mentioned the nine bundled convicts
on tlio Hriizos farms, who were net ting
tho state some fifty thousand dollar
Now, sirs, when they executed this
leaso, they turned over to the lessees
this proiltablo labor bleb on u fair
enleulutioix amounts to n bonus of sca'
en hundred null llfty thoubaud dob
ars in the fifteen yentv.
' NOw, is this JUst to tho stale, and is
it fair" The lessees aro honorable
gentlemen, but not entitled to m much
cousUleiutlou ut tho hands of the
No oilleer or department of a stuto
government can violate a law and hope
to escape criticism, and no political
party eau ailbrd to approve, thoinaiuier
to wnieii una icaao nas neon let.
Hut why should wo not take tho ex-1
periunce of the past to gutdo us in tho
lessees Is manifestly too large to be sat-
iHiactory to uto people.
The IrleiidHOt the lease inside and
outside the senate say it wont do to
reject the lease because the stato can't
manage tho penitential y as well as
Individuals. Now, sirs, this is ono of
tlio most iuinortaitt functions ol gov
ernment and the senators say fat ui It
out because the stato can't perform it.
If It hascoino to this that the great
statu or Texas can't perioral tho duties
Incident to its nolltleal exlslenco then
wo had; In pursuance to the sumo prin
ciple, better leaso out all tho depart-
i liieuis oi government, aim sas-o the ex
j ponce of sessions of tho legislature
and the trouble and political strife.
Tho senator says It takes the qucs
tlon out of politics for fifteen ycais.
, and in reply I will say yes, and ft will
take the Democratic paity out of poli
tics along with tho question. Thocena
tor from Hood has shown thatthostato
lias Heretofore and can now opeinte
it with prollt and on more humane
It Is extiemely Jesuitical, hardly
more so than tho lease to say that the
smaller the amount of lease money
asked tho more humane the treatment
which tlio convicts will iccelve. Tills
Is first-class "bosh," lor it is human
nature for the lessees to make, every
dollar possible, and they will do this
independent of any question of pay
ments to the state.
Again I will state that tho amount
to be received by the state Is chimeri
cal, and very link, if any itionov ever
has or eer will go into the treasury as
tho icsult of this WiMf.
Turn to the comptroller's account
and you will Hud that it shows that
tho superintendent appioves lessees
accounts to about as mueh as they
promised the state. The icporl savs.
that this approval Is of sundry ac
counts. Now, this Very tiling sas object bill
able to mo as any other feature of the
lease, and Invites ec rruptlon and mis
management. I have every confi
dence In our oiueoiH, but temptations
lead men Into evil, and If you want
honest ufilcers don't give them an ec
aiiiple of looe management on the
part of tjhts state. I think it bad pol
icy for tho state to allow the lessees to
pay directly all the state otllevrs and
employees connected wjtb the pent-1

The following from the Missouri Jin

grass, Tipton, and Is confirmed in
eveiy particular by that lady:" Some
years ago, during a cold winter night,
Mrs. Knorgrass dreamed that her
brother, who had been four yum in
the stato of California, had returned

to make his way to their house had
been ovet taken in a storm, and was
dying fioni cold. In her fright she
moused her husband and told him her
dream. Ho told her that she was
always dieaming something and ho
supposed her dieaut did not amount
to anything, since sliu hud no reason
to believe that hot brother was within
a thousand miles of their homo Tho
lady then went to sleep again, and
dicamed precisely tho same thing. She

Every living prefers a varied diet."
"Hog and hominy" is :i substantial
bill of fare for a hard working man,
but one gets tired of It, if it is the only
thing given him to eat day after day.
Even stiawberrlcs and cream would
cease to be appreciated, if there was
nothing else but strawberries
and cream. Tho ssnno idea
is experienced in tlio old
oft icpcitled couplet which declares
that ".Spring would be but gloomy
weather if there was nothing elha but
Spring." Sheep are quite as fastidious
in their tastes ''as the next man."
