Politicians can manipulate a con

eleot a speaker, and in the eyes of
the Gazette that is statesmanship.
"Whon tho people gather together and
give some instructions to their repre
sentatives, in the eyes of tho Gazette,
that is diabolical.
Tho Shermau Rogister says;
"Evory now and then some little ob
souro prooinct indorses Culberson for
the senate. Every day some well
known precinot indorses Mills, but
"Mo and Horaoe" are never heard of.
The extra session of the legislature is
not yet a certainty."
Tho big freeze is aeoeptcd as a
forerunner of an overwhelming crop.
Divorsify it farmers and come up

Tho United States senate has been
mcmoralizcd by the astronomers of
tho oountry asking for a capable as
tronomer as superintendent of tho
naval observatory. This is a good
idea. W. T. Foster, of St. Joe, Mis
souri, should be inado tho superin
tendent. Foster has been tolling us
what kind of weather we are to havo
a week or ten days in advance, while
the weather bureau's prognostrioa

history. Give us a capablo astrono

Somo of our contemporaries affeot
to bco a politioal siguiflcanoo of so mo

Mr. Mills for Washington moan that
ho has given up his candidacy for tho
sonato or that Governor Hogg has as
sured him tho scnatorship question
will not bo mentioned in tho call for
an extra session? It may, and then
again it may moan nothing. It is
not very far to Wnshington and pos
sibly Mr. Mills has dotermincd
to return in a week or so.'
It seoms nevor to have occurred to tho
Express that it was necessary for Mr.
Mills to return to Washington so soon
as his health would permit for tho ex
press purposo of attonding to his du
ties as tho representative of his dis
trict in congress. Wo are sure the
Express would novcr havo asked suoh
silly questions if it had not in a mo
ment of prejudico forgotten that Mills
was a mombor of congress, and that
oongross was in session, and that Mills
in accordance with his usual devotion
to his publio duties, hod simply re
turned to Washington to attend to
those duties. Mills does not havo to
como back to Texas. Tho people are
taking oare of his intereets here.

which if true, will throw somo light on

jurors who found Graves guilty re
marked before tho trial that he would
like to get on tho jury in order to hang
Graves. This man is said to have dis
cussed the case frequently during lasi
trammer and to have declared ho was a
firm believer in capital punishment. Oi
course, this means nothing, but if he
made the other remark attributed to lnm

Could these alleged facts have been
proven before a motion for a new trial

doctor would suroly havo been given an
Thoro are but one or two persons who
can prove the truth of this assertion.
One of them is a boarding house keeper
with whom the juror stopped, and it is
said she heard him make tho damaging
remark. She also told it to another
boader. This boarder told it to a clerk
in a law office and the clerk had his in
formants make an affidavit tn -wli.ifc Hmv

Mrs. Graves, wife of tho doctor, has

shock occasioned by tho verdict in her
husband's case. Her physician says rest

circumstance of her husband's removal
to the penitentiary and sho will not be
told unless all efforts to save him should

change of sceno will benefit her.

Do Planquo of this city has returned
from Palito Blanco where ho went Mon
day to photograph tho house and family
of Catarino Garza in respouso to tele
grams from the representative of tho
Chicago Tribune, who was sent there to
prepare a graphic description of tho
revolutionist's homo and surroundings.
Do Planquo remained with Garza's
family two days and says his wifo is
very intelligent and refined and withal
n splendid specimen of Spanish beauty.
Ho did not see Catarino Garza.
Mr. Colo of Goliad, Tox., who also re
turned from Palilo Blanco Wednesday
night said to a reporter of a paper here
that Garza's family had besought him
not to attempt to overthrow tho Diaz
administration, but all to no purposo.
Colo is an old friend of the Garza family
and says tho timo is very near whon
Mexico will bo engaged in a revolution
that will mako hor tremble from center
to circumference. Ho says that Garza
is not hostilo toward this country and
had his followers known of the presence
ot united btates troops the recent battle
would not have occurred and that Garza
issued orders to his followers not to re
peat tho incident under pain of death.
Colo thinks that Mexico is riie for n
revolution and says that Garza has many
able lieutenants working with him and
plenty of money to carry on warfare.
Cole is positive that Garza is in Mexico
mustering his fighting forces preparatorj
to a fierce raid. '

Dallas. Jan. 22. Today an explosion
in tho vicinity of the American Press
Association and tho city hall shook the
buildings violently and sent the inmates
in the direction from whence the nunb
ling came. On Akard, between Main and
Commerce, workmen are engaged in ex
cavating the rock foi a sewer, and dyna
mite is used. The powder monkey had
placed five sticks of dynamite on tho
emuanKinent on tno east sule of the new
sewer. A spark of fire from some un
known source ignitod the wrapping of
tho explosive. A workman saw the im
pending danger and gave the alarm. Tho
laborers and bystanders fled in all direc
tions just in tho nick of time. Tho ex
plosion came and fairly shook the earth
and the buildings. Every pane of glass
in tho west wall of the large three-storv
building occupied by the American
Press Association was smashed into
atoms. Commodore Jones, a printer,
was cut on tho hands with pieces of
glass. Printer Foster was knocked
down but passed on quickly and ran to
another part of the building. Farmer
Bill Shaw ran to a window, shedding
glass as a duck sheds water, and was
heard to mutter to himself : "Thoy are
after mo again. That last interview of
mine has brought a sockdologer." Other
inmates of the building were cut by
flying glass, but no ono was seriously
injured. Glass was broken in the Grand
Central Hotel, Oriental Hotel, Mulvey
