"WOULD BENEFIT TEXAS.
The Laredo Times claims that
throughout its existence it has
favored tb.e devising of some
means - f oiT confining the State
convicts within the penitentiary
walls and at. the same time make
them self-supporting, and has
all along advocated the establish
ing of factories in Texas to
manufacture the raw materials of
the State; hence it. affords us
pleasure to reproduce in this
issue the remarks of Hon. George
"W". Glasscock, made in a speech
at Georgetown on last Saturday.
There is no question, in the
opinion of the Times, but what
Texas and its people could be
greatly benefited by the erection
of large factoriss within walls,
suffiiently large to confine and
eiriployall of'the State convicts
in manufacturing the raw ma
terials of Texas into cloth, furni
ture, etc. It would give an in
creased demand for raw cotton,
raw -wool, timber, etc., save
freight both ways, prove profit
able to bpth the people and the
State government, render the
escape of convicts much less
liable and compete far less with
the free laDor of the State than
in working convicts on farm and
railroad" work- Then the people
of Texas could wear cloth made
m . Texas or Texas cotton and
wool, use furniture made in Tex
as of Texas wood and it would
keep many millions of dollars
annually from going out of the
State, greatly , increasing the
prosperity and happiness of the
people. . , -This -proposition will

Tom Ransom, a Tonsorial Artist, Tries to
Shave the Universe With .
Toni Ransom, colored, an; em
ploye of the shaving-parlor next
door to the Central hotel, began
an elaborate celebration of the
Christmas festivities at an early
stage of the game. He started
off brisk enough and while his
iamboree jubilee did not last
long, he made things exceeding
ly lively for a season. After
erettine: thoroughly saturated
with corn juice and other intoxi
cants he essayed to take in the
city. He imagined himself the
only barber in the shaving par
lor of creation, and .possessing
himself of a convenient' hatchet
and a blacking brush, ie sallied
forth to lather and shave the
universe. The glass -windows in
the barber shop "were the first
objects that attracted his atten-.
tion. These he demolished on
short order; dealing each pane of
glass a single blow, and at the
same time yelling like a con
quering , Comanche, His next
coup was at Lehmann's old cor
ner. Here he tried to shave the.
plastering off a brick wall, and
was succeeding admirably when

Col. Charley Edwards, the
able "Washington correspondent
of the Houston Post, pays Major
Sayers the following neat com
phment: " There is no member
of the Texas delegation who has
as many close friends, perhaps,
as Joe Sayers. He is trusted to
a greater extent than any man in
congress on either side. ' He is
the hardest worker in congress
and can always be found in his
committee room. He has saved
more money for his country than
any man who has ever been at
the head of the appropriations
committee, and it is positively
refreshing to see how the repub
lican members of that committee
defer to him on all matters be
fore the committee. They are
loud in their protestations
against his voluntary retirement
from congress and proclaim it a
serious loss to the Nation. Major
Sayers has been in congress
nearly fourteen years, and so
busy has he been and so closely
has ho stuck to his duties that
he has never made a trip to
either New York or Baltimore.
He is essentially a worker and
not a talker., Those are the men
who accomplish results here, and
Texas has as'many of them as
any State. It is a good thing
for Buffalo Bayu that Savers
will be here this year. It is
largely due to him that that great
enterprise is so far advanced as
it is and I will soon take occasion
to give the history of how that
work was done."

The Greenville Herald insists
that the people should not lose
sight of the fact that all the fi
nancial legislation that a repub
lican president talked so much
about "reforming" has been en
acted by republicans during the
last thirty years. The democratic
party is in no way responsible
for the existence of the gold
standard, nor any part of our
unsatisfactory monetary system.1

Its aim is also to embrace in the
