A Galveston special says : Rock
for the jetties comes rolling in on
the Gull, Colorado and Santa Fe
trains every day and aro being placed
in the jetties almost as rapidly as
they arrive. Tho work, however, is
not progressing as rapidly as it
would, could the contractors secure
rock of the weight (110 pounds to
the cubic foot), required by the con
tract, in this, they are experienc
ing much difficulty and in conse
quence are applying for a modifica
tion of their contract, reducing the
weight of the rock several pounds
per cubic foot below that required
by their contract. Their application
isnow before the secretary of war,
the only power that can make the
concession, and pressure is being
brought to bear upon the secretary
to grant the modification. Whether
it will be successful or not remains
to be seen.
The contractors have also been
hampered and harrassed in the pros
ecution of their work by injunction
proceedings, attempting to restrain
them iu working certain quarries,
where stone could, be secured of
sufficient weight, and options upon
others where the rock could be ob
tained. Yet despite all these ob
stacles they are making commenda
ble progress, but not as rapidly
as they wish, as they expected
by this time to be placing 100
cars of rock a day in the jetties.
They expect, however, to have all
these difficulties removed in a very
short time, and be placing material
in the jetties so rapidly as to make
the natives open their eyes, at the
rapidity with which the work is be

The poorer a man is the more lie

It is my greatest ambition to undersell
any competition. My knowledge of the
dry goods business is backed by an experi
ence of seventeen years. I think in this
length of time I ought to have learne
something about this business. I try with
a tireless and sleepless ambition to Under
sell, and whether I under-huy or not, I an
determined to Undersell. I possess fa
cilities for purchasing my goods that enable
me to sell cheaper than any other house in
Brenhim, and I intend to live down hard
words and scandal and, like tho evening
star, stand far above all competition.
Talk is cheap, but come to seo mo and
you will certainly find I mean what I say.
