THE AANDM COLLEGE TROUBLE
News comes to ns that there ls trouble
brewing in the State Agricultural and
Mechanical College at Bryan and that
already eeven pupils had been expelled
and that the institution ls in a state of
insurrection The good old farmers who
vote and labored to secure this lnstltu
lion in which their sons could learn to be
practical and intelligent farmers and me
chanics will be astonished to hear this
news and more so to learn its cause
W3 it because some young carpenter
wanted to be a blacksmith No
Was It because one class had to weed
the carrots No
Was it because the lone bull mentioned
In Governor Irelands epistles to the Cor
inthians was not properly cared for No
Was it any dispute over mechanical or
agelcultural matters between the students
and professors No
None of these It was because the tel
egrams tell ue officers of the day are
taken from privates of the first class as
well as from among officers of
the companies and instead of from
the latter exclusively Again
Those good old farmers who voted and
labored tor the establishment of this in
stitution will be astonished to learn of
tils trouble They were told that It was
an institution for the education of the sons
of the honest yeomen of the landand they
find It turned Into a dude military barracks
where uniformed officers strut around
They will realize that it was sop for Cir
ebus The information contained In
The Gazettes special telegrams will be
news surely Tho Idea of conducting an
agricultural and mechanical college on
military principles was not contemplated
at the outset It is a perversion of the
purposes for which the institution was
founded The prictlcsl agriculturist is
one who can analyze different soils tell
what they contain and what they will
grow best engineering sufficient for Irri
gation and drainage purposes and a
knowledge of the various sections of
country The details he can learn at
tf im > w
home The mechanic should learn the
leading principles of mechanics and learn
their application in the workshop
Neither avocations require military caps
or brass buttons Neither require offi
cers or sergeants or military trappings

militia its name should be changed
THE COUNTY IMMIGRATION
MEETING
The meeting Saturday of the Tarrant
county immigration convention was a
success and much good is to be expected
to result from Its labors The selection
of Mr C C Allen as secretary was a wise
one as he thoroughly understands and is
familiar with the duties pertaining to the
important office In matters of this kind
almost everything depends upon the
selection of the secretary and the con
vention ls to be congratulated on secur
ing such an efficient officer The next
thing to be done is the raising of funds
and that should be done at once
Without the sinews of war the secretary
will be without sword or shield and can
do nothing An effort should be made to
raise the required sum at the earliest pos
sible moment so that the work can pro
ceed and Tarrant county be given her fair
share of the benefits to accrue from the
state movement which I already beginning
to make itself felt Let the committee go
to work and see that subscribers go down
In their pockets a considerable depth

THE FORT WORTH WAY
At the Fort Worth meeting of the Texas
editors last May they passed some very
emphatic resolutions on the subject of a
paper mill for the state Since that time
various towns and cities have essayed
movements to inaugurate an enterprise so
strongly recommended by the editors
Houston Dallas Gslveston Waco and
other places have talked paper mill and
Promised paper mill but none
of them have put up the
good money that ls as
necessary to secure a paper mill as it ls
to provide railroads tanneries foundries
wool scouring works etc
With the becoming modesty for which
It Ib famous Fort Worth waited to see if
any cf the towns named meant business
in their talk of meeticg the wishes of the
Texts editors When Fort Worth saw
that all the talk of a paper
mill for Texas by other towns
was sound and fury signifying nothing
tbls city went quietly to work to give the
Texas editors what they wanted The
result as detailed in The Gazettes lo
cal columns yesterday will bear repeti
tion In this connection and The Gazette
refers the Texas editors to the names of
the Fort Worth men at the head of this
enterprise aa a guarantee that
in this matter of a paper mill for the
state Fort Worth has gone to work in its
usual way with money not words J
Juvenet a gentleman thoroughly conver
sant with the manufacture of paper has
been in Dallas several days and made an
attempt to organize a paper mill Ho had
several meetings with the citizens there
for that purpose but no definite action
was taken owing chiefly to the bad qual
ity of the water Mr Juvenet alter
studying the problem decided to give up
efforts there and come to Fort Worth
Yesterday morning he made a careful In
vestigation of the water in the Clear and
West Forks and at 2 oclock was ready
to meet a large number of our prominent
citizens who had assembled at the Fort
Worth National Bank The plans were
fully explained and at once a stock com
pany capitalized at 70000 was formed
The organization will be known as the
Fort Worth Paper Mill Company with
the following gentlemen charter stock

WHO iAY THE TAX
High Turin Beneflta the Few at the Ex
pense of the many
Chicago Herald
THE WEELKY GAZETTE EOET WOKTM TEXAS FBIDAY FEBRUARY 3
It protectionists were honest they
would admit that a high tariff benefits
certain interests at the cost of the whole
body of consumers But they are crafty
and sophistical So plain a statement
of their case would defeat their purpose
That which is essentially a selfi9h sys
tem compelling the many to enrich the
few rests upon a bisis of atrocious
falsehood A favorite statement with
protection apologists ls a denial of the
truism that a consumer pays all taxes
upon products Senator Frye made such
denial the other day He refrained from
going as far as Senator Logan went when
he assured a western audience that Brit
ish manufacturers paid the custom house
tax at Nsw York upon all the goods they
sent Into this country and were com
pelled thereby most unwillingly to con
tribute to the defrayal of the expense of
this government
The Commissioner of Internal Bevenue
has just reported to the Senate that from
the adoption of the internal tax policy in
1862 until June last the government col
lected as a tax upon spirits and fermented
liquors gl34S626083 Who paid this
enormous amount during all these years
The distiller and the brewer The gov
ernment collected it from these manu
facturers but who paid It Taken from
he distiller and the brewer It was added
to the price of liquors and the tax came
out of the pockets of toe consumers the
men who pour the stuff Into their
stomachs During all thesetwentyfive
years many a heavy taxpayer for whisky
went to his grave because tax or no tax
he would Indulge an awful craving for
liquor
When during the war the grivernnient ex
acted from street car companies a special
tax of a cent for every passenger carried
who paid the tax The companies out of
their profits The companies collected
It from their passengers What does a
landlord do regarding the tax levied
locally upon real estate He passes It on
to the tenant who is the real taxpayer
So with every tax The ultimate payer ls
tho consumer
An American merchant purchases at
Manchester oj Sheffield an Invoice of
English made goods He pays the mar
ket price When the consignment reacnes
the New York custom house the American
Importer pays the tariff because the gov
ernment having the whip handle will
not await the slow uncertain and
unsatisfactory process of col
lection from the ultimate pur
chaser for use but lays Its hands
upon the goods at the port of entry de
manding its tribute What does the mer
chant do He determines the selling
price by adding to the cost of the goods
in Manchester or Sheffield the cost ot
transportation the Custom House tax
all expenses including tho brokerage and
Insurance and upon the whole sum fig
ures his own percentage of profit adding
this to the selling price The goods are
passed on Is It not plain as a pikestaff
that the man who fiaally buys for use
some small portion of this original con
signment foots the tax bill
But suppose the consumer buys goods
of home manufacture how can the tariff
affect him dlsadvatageouslj The an
swer is found in the very reason why a
high tariff is levied In the shelter of the
custom houses the home producer of salt
or woolens or lumber or any other
highly protected article makes an artifi
cial price which ls not broken down be
cause foreign competition is restricted
by the tariff Tne price thus raised is
passed on to the ultimate purchaser of
these products who in such case lacks
tne poor satisfaction cf contrlouting to
tho overgrown Eurplus in the Na
tional Treasury for the extra price ex
acted from him swells the profits of man
ufacturer s grown Immensely rich through
such unwarranted favoritism ot law But
may not the keenness of home competi
tion break down this price It it does
why have a protective tariff But lest it
might associations trusts compacts
among producers are organized in order
that the wolves traveling in packs may
make greater certainty of their mutton
When a Senator of the United States
rises to assert that the consumer does
not pay the tax it ls desirable to recur to
these fundamentIs

aime as well as to administer oaths the com
mittee to report to this Honse with such reo
ommendatluna as may be deemed advisable In
the premises
A representative of tbe Bepnblican
called on Mr Plumb and asked him what
object he bad in offering and whatin
duced him to offer the resolutions
I read last summer an editorial in the
National Bepnblican said Mr Plnmb
which claimed that the Ian as found in
the statutes authorized the Secretary ot
the Treasury to call for redemption out
standing bonds In the order prescribed by
law which caused me to investigate that
question and lu doing so I determined to
examine carefully the refunding act of
July 14 lSfQ and all the facts attending
Its passage In thus pursuing the investi
gation I noticed hat the report pP he
committee of conference between tge two
nonsea on the funding bill and whIQh

A
large the preposition
omitted and after is inserted In Iti
stead This essential variance between
the act as voted upon and as printed In
the statutes at large so Interested me that I
determined to ascertain If possible which
was correct and for that purpose went to
the State Department and there examined
the enrolled bill a9 signed by the Sneaker
ot the House the President of the Senate
and as approved by the President To
my great surprise I tound that the word
lor as above described had been
erased and the word after inserted In
Its stead so that the enrolled bill reads
after instead of for as it is In the
conference report on which the House
votedThinking
Thinking it possible that the enroll
ing clerk had found that the record made
by the Secretary of the Senate contaned
the word after and had made the erasure
and alteration In the bill before it was
signed I next had recourse to tho records
made by both the Secretary of the Senate
and the Clerk of the House in the origi
nal dally journal ol the proceedings of
their respective bodies and in both tnese
original records the word for stands
unaltered and presumably just as it was
when the yeas and nays were recorded
on the flaal passage of the bill and when
the enrolled bill was signed
How do you account for this variance
you discover was asked
I do not pretend to know how It oc
curred be said I do not think any
memher of Congress living or dead has
been guilty of any improper action in ref
erence to any of these bills but believe
that some Irresponsible person has un
authorized tampered with the records of
Congress
Do I understand you to say that the
law as passed by Congress has been al
tered since approved by tne President
I cannot see how any other conclusion
can be arrived at This is tne fact or no
law has < een passed
You hold then that the entire bonded
debt of the United States now exists at
tho pleasure of the United States
The discussion on the subject will
show the control of section 3C93 of the
Bevlsed Statutes over other andtemporary
legislation on the same subjrctlt will lead
to the conclusion that In any event tbe
condition must be that the 4 per cents
amounting to 736000000 are redeema
ble by law at the pleasure of the United
States
rOH OCHILTREE AND JEM MACE
How ths Imaginative Ttian Won a Bet of
SlOO and a Dinner
Philadelphia Times
Ochiltree was present at the famous
fight between Jem Mace and Tom Allen
Konner ten miles west of New Orleans
There was gathered to witness that fa
mous bout probably the most distin
guished assemblage of men ever congre
gated in this country to look upon a
struggle between two men The Govern
or of Louisiana the Mayor and Chief of
Police of New Orleans the entire Su
preme court of the state Congressmen
men prominent in all walks ot life formed
a ring that rose above the ropes After
Mace had been declared the victor the
entire party returned to New Orleans
and drank many sparkling bumpers to
the continued success of the champion
In one croup in a famous resort were
Colonel Jack Wharton United States
marshal fjr Louisiana the late Sam
Hatch wno now has a brother in Con
cress from Missouri Colonel George
Sheridan who was one of Governor War
months court and who is now lecturing
through the conntry and Colonel Thomas
Phantasmagoria Ochiltree In warmly
voicing the praises of Mice Colonel
Jack Wharton said I never saw a
man use his hands more gracefully nor
with better effect His defence i some
thing phenomenal Do you knowgentle
men no man has ever struck Jem Mace in
the eye and no man ever wih It ia an
impossible feat
Nonsense said the Hon Mr Ochil
treeWhet
Whet do you mean sir said Colonel
Jack Wharton crimsonly
Just what I say sir replied the red
headed warrior from the Bio Grande
I can hit Mace In the eye mysell
Bet you 8100 and a dinneryou cant
answered Colonel Jack Wharton
breathlessly
Taken said the Hon Mr Ochiltree
Jem Mace was in the room
He had not heard the conversation
The Hon Mr Ochiltree who was well
acquainted with the bcxer approached
him with that urbanity of demeanor that
constitutes his chief charm and requested
him to take a glass of wine The great
pugilist who showed not the slightest
trace of his encounter with Allen
graciously consented He and the Hon
Mr Ochiltree clinked glasses the latter
holding his in his left band Just as the
wine touched Maces lips the Hon Mr
Ochiltree hauled off with his good right
arm and dealt the fighter a savage blow
in the left eye that made the blood fly
These are not the stars Mace saw Nor
are they the stars that the Hon Mr
Ochiltree saw He had not time to see
anything They are aimply put thare be
cause words fail to describe the scene
that ensued Four days after when the
Hon Mr Ochiltree regained conscious
ness he was in bed in the St Charles
Hotel One leg which ls In splints was
suspended from a pally in the cellicg
One arm was between boards and ban
daged His head was swathed in linen
By his side sat Colonel Jack Wharton
and Sam Hatch with concern and
eemmiseration upon their faces The
first words that the Hon Mr Ochiltree
uttered were Did I win the bet
Yep you won the bet said Colonel
Jack Wharton sadly but youre a
sight to see
TeJl ma about It faintly whispered
the Hon Mr Ochiltree
Well said Colonel Jack Wharton
there Isnt much to tell You struck
Mace squarely In one eye and then all of
a sudden something seemed to happen
I couldnt make out exactly what it was
but the air seemed filled with red hair
and bootheels When the cyclone had
subsided we picked you up and brought
vou here and here you havo been for
four days
The Bolivian government has given to
an American the exclusive right to navi
gate the river Deaaguardero by steam
LakeTiticaca 1p 12900 feet above the sea
and the river Desadguardero is its only
outlet The river issues from the
southern extremity ot the lake and flows
180 miles to lake Aullogas which is little
lower than Titicaca and has no outlet at
all It appears that the business ot work
ing tbe ancient mlnea in that country has
been developed and it is perhaps to orlng
to market ores from such mines farther
in tbe Andes that the right to use steam
on the Desaguerdero is desired

We understand from a gentleman just
from San Antonio that considerable ex
citement exists in that place that it is
the general opinion there from tne move
ments of the Mexicans that there will be
an invasion by Mexico Our informant

THE ENCHANTED ROCE
Beyond all doubt there are a great
many very curious things In Texas A
correspondent informs us that In the San
Sba Valley In the mountainous region
of Texas is an immense rock farmed of
the granite peculiar to the Upper Colo
rado country It rises about 200 feet
above the plsic anrl can be seen In one
dtiection at the distance of several miles
When near it presents to the eye an even
surface wita nothing peculiar in Its con
struction except that from about midway
up the face of the rock is undulating
It received the name ol The Enchanted
Bock from its singular appearance at a
distance by moonlight When approached
from the side on which the moon shines
It resembles an immense castle brilliantly
lighted and the undulations ot the sur
face are so regular and have so much the
appearance of windows that the beholder
can hardly imagine he Is looking on a
solid rock Tne Comanches believe It to
be the occasional abode ot the Great
Spirit and look upon It with as much
reverence as a good Catholic does upon
the image of the Virgin
The rock is a species of perishable
granite the quartz nerytes of copper
and oxide of iron can be easily separated
The perytes of copper has at the first
glance the appearance of gold and par
ticles of it washed up on the banks of the
Colorado and other streams of Western
Texas have given rise to the report tint
native gold abounds in the mountains It
ls the reflection of the moons rajs by
this substance that elves the imposing
appearance to The Enchanted Bock

A BECENHiY EXTIXCT T0S6UE
Where the Cornish Lnngnngo Was Spoken
for the Last Time
Nineteenth Century
The old Cornish language is now ex
tinct It was spoken by a few old fisher
folk at Newlynr and Mousehole probably
for the last time during the closing years
ot the Eighteenth century and the last
sermon In Cornish Is said to nave been
preached at Landewednack toward the
close of the Seventeenth Traces how
ever are still to be found in tbe names
of persons and places and In a few rustic
words and phrases which uncouth as
they may sound to a strangers ear often
have in their meaning a wild beauty of
their own For Instance Polurrlan
meant to a Cornish ear the sea birds
home CarragLcz the hoary rock
and Creeg Morgan the stony hillocks by
the sea It was a Cymric rather than a
Gaelic dialect and was tolerably well un
derstood by those who spoke the
tongues to which It was most
nearly allied the Welsh and the Bre
tons Indeed Bishop Gibson in hU Ad
ditions to Camdens Cornwall 1678
1700 pointed out that one ot the disad
vantages of suppressing the old language
would be less of commerce and corre
spondence with the Armoricans cf Brit
tany Seawee a Cornish writer and Vice
Warden of the Stacharles who 200 yearj
ago even then lamented the impending
disappearance contended that it was
not so guttural in the Welsh nor mut
tered like the Armoric and wo have
the testimony ol ProfessorMax luller
that it was a melodious and yet by
no means an erf mlnate language
Yet It must be admitted that the coup de
grace was administered by the Cornish
themselves forScawen is compelled to
admit that our people In Qaeen Eliza
beths time desired that the common lit
urgy should be In the English tongue to
which they were then for noveltys sake
affected not of true judgment desired
It The dialects spoken even In the
present day in some country districts are
quite unlike any of the other English di
alects and are as unintelligible to a
stranger as that of Lancashire
