What is wanted of
soap for the skin is to
wash it clean and not
hurt it. Pure soap does
that. This is why we
want pure soap; and,
when we say pure, we
mean without alkali.
Pears' is pure; no. al
kali in it; no free alkali.
There are a thousand
virtues of soap; this one
is enough. You can trust
a soap that has no biting
alkali in it.
All sorts of stores sell
it, especially druggists;
all sorts of people use it.

?0R GOVERNOR OF TEXAS.
In this issue will he found an inter
view in whioh Hon. George Clark an
nounces as a candidato lor governor.
It is truly refreshiug to icad tlio dos
ing paragraph which breathos the
truo principles of Deniooracy und
stamps tlio new candidate for governor
with tho gonuioo Jeffersonian brand.
It is this:
"Wo are governed too muoh, more
than Ivupublioan Massachusetts, and
many of our laws rosulr only in catiug
up the substance ol the people Let
us abolish all useless ofiices.reducQ our
establishment and expenditures, quit
taking care of our friends by provid
ing places for them at tho publio ex

trust and not as a privato snap, do

them do unto us, and turn Texas looso

Thoro was nover a doubt in Judge
Clark's mind a9 to tho ability of the
pooplo to tako c.ro of . the
country and themselves if allowed
to pcrsuo tho oven tenor of thoir way,
and he is willini; to trust them.
"Turn Toxas looso and let hor grow,"
is a good platform by itsolf. Tho
pcoplo of Toxaa havo found out to
their Borrow that tho howl for more
law and a stronger povernmont to
keep capital from pauperizing them,
was the howl of tho demagogue who
profits by their poverty. Judge Clark
doesn't fail to tell whero ho stands on
tho commission question. Sub
mitting to tho will of the people as
expressed at the polls last year on the
commission amendment, ho di'sites
to soo tho will of the peop'o carried
out faithfully, and favors amending
tho law parsed by tho last legiilaturo
to uiako it conform to the batio prin
ciples of our state and federal coasii
tutions. Judgo Clark thus forces tho
issue between Governor Hogg and
"The obnoxious features of that law,
as ilioy occur to me now, are those
provisions which give the governor
tno power oi appointment, ami prac
tically debar railroad oompan cs from
tho priviledge of appealing to tho
courts of tho country fir the protec
tion of their proporty. This laiter
feature smells of rank communism, and
neither of them, as they stand, riflect
the matured viows of our law linkers.
They aro tho spawn of a midnight
conclave, aad were foisted upon
the a atute book under tho ltieh of an
intolerant excouuve. The governor
is responsible for depriving tho peo
ple of their right to seleot their agents
for the administration of justice, as he
is also responsible forthoso other pro
visions of the law which trarnplo
under foot tho great principles of civil
liberty as embodied in magna oharta
and in both of our constitution, sttto
and federal. He diatatcd both and
refused to tolerate any modification of
Oither, as is well known to members ol
tho legislature. And tho legislators
yielded their own judgment in ordei
not to jeopardize a commission."
The fight is on and The News will
be found in tho front on the open
field battling for a return to genuine
Dcmooratio principles. Wo want
a brave, truo patriot and statesmau
for governor, too, and Goorge Clark
fills the bill all the way out to tho
margin on all side?.

Denviik, Feb. 15. In the United
Stittes circuit court Judge fiiner handed
doxvn his deeioion which, if .sustained,
will compel several counties of tho htato
to lay out nearly .$0,000,001). When or
ganized at vuriqus times tho counties
issued county warrants to raiso funds
and securities, which were placed upon
tho market and purchased largely by
eastern parties. In January, 18S1,
Custer county issued a number of
warrants, upon tho faco of which
it agreed to pay 10 per cent
intorest upon them until paid. H.
II. Dudley purchased beveral thou
wind dollars worth of them on specula
tion. There was no money in tho Custer
county treasury until 1838, when Air.
Dudley presented his warrants for pay
inont. They wore repudiated March 25
18110. He brought suit to recover. Tho
county set up a plea under tho Colorado
ttatute of limitations that tho plaintiff
was barred because ho had not brought
suit in six years after the causo for ac
tion had accrued as tho statute re
quired. Tho plaintiff contended that
tho cause did not accruo until
January, 18S8, when there wero
funds in tho treasury and when tho war
