TEXAS, EKXDAY, DECEMBER 21
A Poll Tax-
The idea of making the pay
ment of a poll tax a pre-requis-ite
to voting is favorably men
tioned by all the papers which
have expressed, any opinion on
the subject. It is a well known
fact that there is a very large
percentage of the poll tax is not
now paid and there is no means
of forcing its collection. A poll
tax law wo"uld work like a
charm in the counties where
there is a large negro population.
About all the enjoyment some
negroes have in the world is
voting; it is a part of their ex
istence, and they never allow
an opportunity to vote to pass.
A very large majority of them
pay no taxes and also avoid
road working. If they were
compelled to exhibit their poll
tax: receipts before voting, the
probability is there would be
fewer of them vote; the people
generally would be better off.
In regaad to the whites, the
votes of those who are unwilling
or unable to pay a poll tax
could be dispensed with; with
out any serious detriment to
the public good. Among other
tilings of importance this is one
that is worthy of the serious
consideration of the legislature.
The Galveston News in an
editoral upon the action of the

railroad, fully endorses the ac

pride in the fact that Galveston
capitalists have agreed to" ad
vance the money. With this
loan the News regards the suc
cess of the road as guaranteed
and says that work will un
doubtly be continued ; that with
the money advanced the road
will be clear of all floating in
debtedness and in a condition
to put its mortgate bonds on
the market in such a shape as
will, attract purchasers. .The

On Friday the directors of

every mother should freely use Parker's
Ginger Tonic to preserve her cheerfulness
and strength, and to secure her regular
sleep and rest; her nursing little one will
show in it happy playfulness in freedom
from pain and fretlulness, and its disposi
tion to refreshing sleep. If this were all
to be said of this remedy, it is enough to
give it inestimable value in'the household,
but there are ladies without number who
sufer untold miseries from functionalde
rangements, to hom its use will afibrd.the
greatest comfort, by giving entire relief
from Painful Periods and Nervousness,
and restoring the healthful regularity of the
disturbed functions. Buy from your drug
gist, R. E. Luhn, a St. co bottle or a sam
ple bottle at 15 cents and test its merits.
