Thero nover was as Coo an opportu
nity fur speculation or a ohance tor
persons of small means to aecurn a
homo as is offered in the Kirkpatiick
addition to Waco. It embraces about
sixteen hundred lots, each one of
whioh will iu ten years bo worth ten
times tho prico for which thoy oan
now bo bought. Thcso lots lie high
and dry and on an elevation overlook
ing a largo part ol tho city. Thev
aro oloso to tho business portion of
tho city, muoh nearer than Dickey's
hill, where lots aro worth ono thous
and dollars and muoh nearer than
many other additions where lots aro
soiling for thrco times tho amount
asked for lots in this addition. Noar
ncss to tho center of tho oity is tho
key to succesiful speculation. Tho
soil is a fertile loam, tho finest in
Waoo for gardens and frjit. Tho
whole tract is underlaid with tho
purest of water at a depth of from
fifteen to sixteen feet and is found in
the gravol and in inoxhaustiblo quan
titles, making irrigation by
wells perfeotly feasible. Tho
wholo traot is covered with a
young growth of forest trees, tho most
beaunlul ones of which can be saved,
thus giving at once for a homo a beau
tiful shade which on bare lots oan only
bo obtained by groat expense and
years of watting. In all respoots the
Kirkpatiok addition oilers tho best op
portunity for jcrsons of smad means
to acquire beautiful residence proper
ty that has ocourrod in tho last tive
years. It is a chanoo that will never
ocour again and it may not last long.
Tho prices at which theso lots are be
ing sold and the easy terms is attract
ing prudent people and it has always
been tho caso that property rapidly
advances when a few peoplo begin to
make homes. Now it a golden oppor
tunity lor clerks, mechanics and la
boring people, and it is ono they will
nover sco again in tho history of
Waoo. It is absolutely the last chance.
Property tho samo distance up the
river is selling at threo times the
pneo for whioh these lots are offered
And yet aro not nearly as desirable.

Ex-Mayor Hinchman promised The
News reporter an interview yesterday
and theroforo, The News man loot no
timo in cornering the major for a talk
"Honest, now major aro you going
to run for mayor?" was tho first quos
"I told you yesterday that I was
undecided, and your query yesterday
afternoon put mo to thinking. A
host of friends have urged mo to
mako the raoo and I will say that

for mayor. I would prefer, as I in
timated yesterday, that tho oounoil
raise the mayors salary to $2000 and
leivo tho offices of mayor and reoorder
merged, but if tho council sees fit
to separato tho two offices, I will en
ter tho race tor mayor anyhow, at
tho present salary. I do not eon
eider it any too much to able
of tho major of Waco to
require his Eervioes as police
judge provided the salary is sufficient
to pay for his entire time. If the
council will raiso tho mayors salary to
2,000, 1 will agree to perform tho
duties of mayor and police judge and
save thereby about $700, a year to
tho people of Waco."
"Tho functions of the offioo of
mayor are growing very rapidly now
any how, are thoy not?"
"Yes. And if tho mayor does a
city liko Waco justice he will have
to beiu his ollioo at least three-forths
of his time and devoto the balance of
hid time on tho Btrects looking after
tho interests of the people."
"What is your idea about an in
crease of tho bonded dobt of Waoo?"
"I am free to state that I am em
piratically opposed to issuing another
dollar of bonds against the city ot
Waoo unless wo know before thoy aro
issued that thoy can bo -sold jit par or
at a premium and not evon then un
less lor sanitary purposes or to reduce
the interost 011 past indebtedness.
If Waco would prosper, her taxes and
expenses must bo reduced. Ilcr pro
gress must be euro and solid and not
based upon inflated or ficticious
"During your two years adminis
tration as mayor of Waoo how did
you find tho city's credit?"
"Her credit was first class. I never
sold any of hor bonds below par. The
last $150,000, 1 sold in St. Louis at a
premium of about $10,500."
"What expense was attached to tho
sale ot the bonds and plaoing them to
tho city's credit in St. Louis?"'
"Just $31.50 and if you
believe it could not
bo done for that, go look at the city
re 001 d. It is there to show for

beon that tho people should have- a
bill of items of reoeipts and expen
ditures, and tho books should always
bo opon for inspection."

"What induces you to mako tho
raoo, anyhow Mayor?"
"I behove tho mayor of Waoo, in
tho next two years will have a thorny
road to travel, and will oertainly oc
cupy a very unonviable position.
My first reason is that hundreds,
both white and black, in Waco have
strongly solioited mo to bocomo a
"Seoond, I have always bolievcd
that my two years of hard, and faith
ful toil for the peoplo has found an
appreciation, and as I bavo
always been willing to re
spond to a public duty,
I am willing to servo tho peoplo again
just as I served them beforo to tho
best of my ability."
."Third, I feel a ptide in Waco, hav
ing been identified as a citizen, pub
lic or private, for eighteen years. I
regard Waco as possessed wilh a
grand future, eeoond indeed to nono
in tho state, und as tho best part of
my life has been spent in hor bounds,
I would be most especially pleased to
havotho next few years of my life
blended with the progress of tho best
town on earth."
-This ended tho intorview. The
major is evidently in earnest.
A DESERVING CASE.
uf Charity In Our Midst Which
Calls for Liberal
Offiocr Clay was informed yoster
terday morning, that a man by tho
name of R. Q Davidson had died,
leaving his family, composod of u
wife and tbreo children, in desti
tute circumstances , and that assist
ance was necessary. Mr. Clay actuat
ed by tho kind-heartedness ior which
ho is noted, at ouco visited tho
home of sorrow and distress, and
found that tho report to him was by
no means exagerated, audimmediatcly
set about to relieve tho distress of
iho grief-stricken widow and fatherless
children. Ho prooured a coffin from
tho oounty and paid the oxponse of
the shipment of tho body to Mart, for
interment, and then set about to
procure the immediate necessaries of
lif'o for tho ohoerless and destituto
housohold. One gentleman whose
namo was not given procured a stove
and conveyed it to tho residence upon
a wheol-barrow, and othors contribut
ed small amounts of cash with whioh
provisions woro purohased by Mr.
(Jlay and sent to the humblo rcsidonco.
Tho deceased has boon an invalid
for a long time past and the support
of the family has devoted upon the
wiro and eldest daughter tho latter
working harn and faithfully at tho
Blake Manufacturing company for a
mere pittance which togethor with
what tho mother has been aoleto earn
by sewing, washing and ironing dur
ing tho sparo moments not devoted to
the, almost, oonstant attention at the
bedsido of tho dying husband and
father, has sufficed, though mcagorly,
to keep the wolf from tho door.
This is a worthy subject of charity
and it is hoped thoso who feel bo in
clined will turn over to Officer Clay,
at tho city hall, whatever thoy may
feel inclined to givo and it will bo
