We learn fromthe San Saba
ATeios some interesting particu
lars regarding the 'wholesale
slaughter of the bison (buffalo)
on" the plains. It .13 estimated
that at least two thou-and per
sons are now encamped on Texas
soil for the sole purpose of
slaughtering the bison. 'These
men have reduced the-limit to a
system, and are as thoroughly
organized 'as a 'well drilled
army. -The plan is to surround
the whole buffalo range, ' which
is done by sending oat parties
hundreds of miles from the set
tlements and completely encir
cling their prey, thus cutting off
the retreat. Regular hunter's
supply stores have been estab
lislietl at convenient localities.

Tnu Galveston J!Tews has an
editorial' oa the ..charges, made
igain:t Gov. Hubbard in regard
to certain buiuess transactions
Avitb J, H. Burnett & Co , and
the temporary lease of the pen
itentiary to Barn t fe Kilpat
rlck. It says that eo far as the
evidence adduced goes, the Gov
ernor stands acquitted of the
charge. His dealings with
ilessrs. Burnett & Co., csteud
back six yearc, and are exclu
sively of a private,, commercial
character. From the time the
time the charge was first made,
the Basxee has placed no reli
ance in it, .regarding it as a
mere bugaboo. This, without
any regard to the possibility ot
Gov. Hubbard being a candi
date for re-election. There is
plenty of time between now and
the next electiou to select a can
didate. Internal Kcrenne.
It is rumored that the sub
committee of the ways and means
committee will report to the
whole committee a proposition
toreimposo an income tax, the
-object being to reduce the to
bacco and one or two other in
ternal taxed. The argutnent in
favor ot the income tax is that
iheE-istcnijSeaboard and middle
States now pay far less internal
revenue 'tax than the Northern
and Southern middle States; that
property, and production are
over-taxed in the latter compar
ed with with the former. The
object is to reach the holders of
government bonds, the most of
whom are residents of the East.
It is thought that if such a bill
passes it will be laid specifically
tor one year, leaving it with the
next Congress to continne it.

BB,ENHAM, WASHINGTON COUNTY, TEXAS. FETOAX JANi
TltC TOOK fAKX.
As appears by the proceed
ings of the County ' CoUimis
Monera' Couit ejsewhere, they
have by a- mnjiiri'y decided to
rescind the .order purchasing a
county or poor farm. Just bow
this action was bronght about
we are not at this writing advis
ed, neither do we know what ac
tion is contemplated by the
learned "commissioners .who vo
ted to rescind. One thing how
ever is patent, that is it c"sts
the coujity nearly 40i)0 pir
year to partially maintain the
paupers, that being the amount
ot 6crip doled out to them in
:6inal installments. --Msinyof
the recipients of ' the county's
bounty are able to do at least
some work by which they could
be made to partially if tint
wholly' to snpport themselves.
To our idea the purchase of a
county farm involved no risk,
the property would not be likely
to deteriorate in value and we
feel satisfied that thenuinber of
paupers on the roll would have
been largely decreased as' many
of them would have devised
ways and means to maintain
themselves, when it came to the
last resort going to the county
farm. If, after a yeir's experi
ence, it should have been found
that the system was a failure, it
could then be abandoned, aud
the property refold aLboutthe
original cost, perhapsNor more.
In Missouri, and several other
States, the system of maintain
ing paupers 011 county or poor
farms has been in operation for
many years, and has been found
to work well and satisfactorily.
The facts about the EI Paso
invasion are thus summed up by
the San .Antonio mispress:
The "mob originated in Mexi
co ; was led bv a .Mexican and
drilled by a .Mexican officer and
was a Mexican mob. The ob
ject of the mob was to accom
plish the death ot Judge How
ard, who held certain .salt lakes
in Texas, in compliance with
the laws of Texas who was
the legal owner of the salt, and
who had given the Mexicans no
caiite for complaint, except that
he asked the payment of forty
cents a "bushel for it. The at
tempt to make out that
the mob was from this
side of the river becomes
very ridiculous when the fact U
made known that a hundred
bushels of salt were used in
Mexico to one on this side of
the river. The logical deduc
tion from articles in various
'Nbrt'ieru papers is, that the
Mexicant were, justified In tak
ing possession of American ter
ritory and murdering Ameri
can citizens because Howard,
an American citizen, had the
audacity to mainlian his legal
rights in his own country. This
isTthe only provocation the Mex
icans have had.

The recognition ef the Diaz
government by the United
States would probably put the
Mexican government in a better
condition to enforce order on
the Rio Grande frontier ; it at all
events could make matters no
worso and would not materialry
change the status of the two
governments. It is evident that
it the military authorities on
both sides ot the river act in ac
cord, raiding can be brought to
a summary close.

The Wae Department has
