Vli-w Tall en by tho City Count II.
Denton, August 1). In reply to the
Austin coriespondent of the AriM In
leportlngthe uttorney-general's deci
sion regaidlng the apjiointment of
school tiustees, I be to state that eald
correspondent was mistaken In his
premises and consequently wiongin
tlio deductions theiefrom. The city
jL'ouncll of Denton did not wish to oust
the old board of school trustees elected
by the people in 1S70 for a term of four
years under the law in force at that
time. But said term of olllee having
about expired and a new law having
been enacted by the legislature In
Apill, 1SSIJ, by which said new board"
ot trustees should bo appointed by the
city council, they (the city council of
Denton) assumed It to be their prerog
ative and duty to appoint th new
board to assume their duties at the ex
uiration of the term of ofllce of the old
board elected in 1S79.
This action the city council deem
ed to Uc in accoulanco with the new
law. To tills court-u some membeis of
tho old bouid demuried, claiming
that the public schools had been
placed beyond the control of the city
council bv ren.)n of the fact that in
1S71 the people had voted that the city
should assume control of a board of
trustees which at that time were elec
ted by the people under the In w ex
isting ut Unit time, and further claim-in-r
that the law of ISS.'t did in nowise
lepeal or amend the hiw of 1S70, be
cause (as they claimed) the public
schools of Denton were not now under
contiol of the city council. Hence,
the demurri'is claimed that the public
school trustees should now be elected
by the people independently of the
enactment of 1SS:5.
On this question the city council do
not think tbo attorney-general lias as
yet rciuliM erta decision, but that hi-,
recent decision was upon the question
as to whether the city council has or
has not a liht to oust tho old boaid of
trustees from imicc a prerogative
which the city council of Denton does
not attempt to exercise at all. They
only claim the right to appoint the
now board to assume oHIcp at the ex
piration of the term of ofllce of the old
board elected in lfa"0.

refused to surrender her and aouitht

entitled to her custody and they could
not hold her. Of course nothing could

her to go with him, but she told him
he had never boen a father to her and
she did not love him and refused to go.

admonished him it was unhealthy for
him to reiunin at Giddiinrs very long
and simge'-ted if he did" not want to
visit the lenlnis of eternity he had
better take tho next train and never
baseen in thoe parts again; at the
same time they gave him to under
stand If he ever claimed, or attempted
to claim the girl, his huaaan anatomy
would only be of use as a subject for

was no mistaking the" purpose f the

The failure of the Hon. Bradley Bar
low's bank at St. Albans shows how
speedily speculation in ralhoads may
sweep away tbo hard earnings of the
most successful star loute contractor.
The explanation given also shows that
Mr. Barlow's experience as a contrac
tor did not teach him how to conduct
a bunk with due regard for confiding
depositors. What light land tins
national bank to discount
railroad paper to an amount
exceeding its deposits, and to make
loans upon railroad bonds which the
market rejected? The fact is that the
bank was part of Mr. Barlow's private
estate, as those will lemember who
recall the star-route Investigation of
1870. In those days Mr. Barlow was
thohingof tho star-ioute service, en
gaged in developing the country. The
annual pay for his loutes was
nioic than 1,000.000, and his liberality
and generosity wete sometimes seveie
ly taxed by Inquiring persons whom
ho found It necessary to pacify. Phe
nomenally fortunate as a mail carrier,
he seems to have failed as a railway
owner, probably becauso bo found the
methods bv which he built up a lare
fortune as a contractor In the service
of the postolllce department not appli
