George Ward Dead.
George Ward, a negro about 35
years of age, died somn time during
last night in tho oity iuil. He was
arrosted at 4:30 yesterday afternoon
and locked up in the calaboose fur
drunkoness and was found this morn
ing by City Jailor John Fee at 5
o'otook cold and stiff in death.
George was a well known character
in Waoo, having for tho past ton
years flgurod continuously in tho po
lioo court, occupying at least three
fourths of his time in the calaboose
and upon tho chain gang on the
stroots. His bescting sin was strong
drink and it was for the offenso of
drunkeness that he always answered
before the mayor. During the last
twelve months poor George had been
so badly crippled up with rheumatism
that he could not work out bis fines
and had booomo a charge upon the
ciry. He is at rest at last. The veil
of charity will be drawn over tho
profligate oharaotor of poor Georgo.
His remains wero lowered this
afternoon in a pauper's crave at the
exponBO of (ho aounty without a pang
cf regret, a toar shod or a requiem
sung over his lonely grave.

THE FACTORY QUESTION.
An Erstwhile New Blrmlnghamer
Wants to Invest His Savings.
Stkelhouo, Texas, Fob. 1, 1892.
To the Ktlltor of TUo News.
Gentlemen 1 hayo mado it a pub
lic matter that I shall not devote any
more timo or money to the building
ud faotories in this iron ore section
I where "shotgun ru.o" and pistol toters
I have spont two years time and a
largo amount of money to place the
iron oro bofore capitalists in tno
North and England, and had just ne
gotiated for the first $50,000 to help
erect a 50 ton furnace, but to devoto
further timo and money in a section
where the shotgun would destroy all
things at a moments timo will bo loft
for thoso who prefer suoh sport.
I am a manufacturer of .large ex
perience and the last sixteen years
havj been devoted to the Southern
trade; for tho last three years I havo
been a New Birminghamcr and lost
some $75,000 in booming that place
and am willing to put in what I can
save i'.om the wreok into a series of
factories in some good oity in Texas.
There is nothing from some con
tral located oity representing in Texas
what tho manufacturing cities of Mo
line, Raoiue, South Bend, Springfield
does in the north and within less ter
ritory. Tho capital to start those manufac
tories need not bo large and could
successfully compete with those of the
north in quality of goods and in
pricos. The manufacture of wngons,
ohilled plows, cast plows would give
employment to many thousand skilled
mechanics and build up tho value of
real estate as well as to ship tho goods
from the north to Texas and make
their property valuablo through
money received from this state.
As a basis to thoso that desire to
help start a sciies of factories I sug
gest the following:
Tbo sum of $5.00 bo deposited into
a fnnd to take up the amounts invest
ed out of oaoh wagon as sold. Tho
same peroontage from sales of plows.
The amount invested in buildings
and maohinery to bear a reasonable
annual interest until tho operating
fund is takon up, then tho same
amount set apart to take up this in
I have a list of some 00,000 of the
best farmers in Texas and from let
ters received there are a large num
ber ready to take stook in these facto
ries to receive tho output at reasona
Then there are somo two thousand
morohants in various oountry towns
that would take certificates with cou
pons that entitles them to our goods
at factory prices during ton years.
This explanation is sufficient to any
business man in your city that desires
to see a series of faotories established
upon a safe basis of investment and
withdrawal of funds without future
injury to tho output of tho faotories.
i ho cities named heretoioro are not
in the iron belt of the north, but in
tho agricultural sootion and the loca
tion of faotories in tho agricultural
part of Texas would not prove detri
mental from that point of viow or be
used as an argument by the iron ore
investors. I was called a first class
fool by my frionds in Tonn. for mov
ing my iaotory to Texas and I dislike
to go back alter a loss of nearly all of
what I brought with mo. and if there
is any city in Texas that will tako any
interest in establishment of factories I
will join a syndicate for this purpose
The estimablo ladies who have un
dertaken to raise Waoo'a quoto of tho
World's Fair fund, givo a pleasant

four to twelve. Tho chivallry and
gallantry of Waoo should make the
