Dynamite plots are again to the
front in national news. Society will
crush out dynamite, the common and
most diabolical enemy of humanity,
with a hand of iron firmness.
The texture of the tariff bill and its
final fate are to be tested in the house
on Saturday. The house will divide
p.retty closely on it, just as com
mon folks do.
Chicago is again stirred up by the 1
supposed discovery of a dynamite
plot. She has reason to be nervous
remembering the terrible dynamite
tragedy in her streets still so fresh in
The signal service bureau announces
through the press this morning, that
there will be no protracted heated
spell during July. If the present spell
is protracted much longer it will stick
over into August.
Evan T. Jones, President of the
Farmers' Alliance, of Texas, and
nominee on the ticket formulated by
the Labor party, at Fort Worth, for
governor, has not yet accepted the
nomination. He who hesitates is lost
but then, perhaps, Mr. Jones thinks
he would be lost if he run.
The benefits derived from the con
struction of the Brazos Valley will re
pay the cost the first year. The num
'ber of men and teams employed will
boom trade, and what is more, give a
market for the hay and corn crops in
this county. Its construction this
year is a bit of happy luck.
Mrs Parsons, the irrepressible wile
of the dead anarchist, is credited with
the assertion that she is training her
son to avenge his father's death. As
the great majority of fifty million peo
ple assented to his hanging, thereby
becoming aiders and abettors, the boy
will have a big job on hand. It will
be a'one-sided vendetta.
The first great political cartoon of
the campaign is contained in the St.
Louis Republican of Sunday. Over
the adage offacilisestdecensus averni,
the cartoon shows the grand
father a man of great proportions,
magnificient physique and massive
brow, the son who stands next him is
an ordinary man, while the grandson,
at the end of the row, is a pigmy.
The great St. Louis elopement case
has ' proved a most ridiculous fiasco.
It began with threats of bloody mur
der, then made the air black with
visions of the penitentiary, and will
end by fining Mrs. Norton for adulteiy
ji it is pro ed, and fining Moore for
the same offence if he is caught.
When Emperor William, the mon
arch of one of the greatest empires
and the-Gzar of all the Russiah Jmeet,
there will be salutes by mighty iron
clad fleets and frowning fortresses,
flaunting banners and courtly cere
monies that will fill European news
papers. But when the two emperors
meet in a back room, over two glasses,
Bill will wink at the Czar and say,
"Help me wallop France and I will
heln annex. Turkey and thrash John
Bull black and blue" and the Czar will
reach out his hand and say. "Put it
there." And they will fill up their

The Age of Steel, of July 7th, gives
an extensive account of the Nacogdo
ches iron field, and combination of
New York' and. St. Louis capitalists,
recently organized to develope it. The
Age has gone to the trouble of send
ing a special agent to investigate it,
and pronounces it, the New Birming
ham. Our old friend; Mr. A. B.
Blevins, well-known in Waco for his
sterling integrity and honesty, as well
as his business qualities, is the origi
nal projector, who has interested east
ern capital in this magnificent mineral
deposit. Rusk is about one hundred
miles from Waco via the Waco and
Shrevesport, (Col. Wm.Taylor'i road)
and the prospective early develop
ment of the iron interest there, re-
I doubles the necessity of Waco taking
hold and pushing through this line;
now that the Aitinsas Pass is secured.
Let Col. Taylor boom his road.

San Antonio, July 18. Letters re
ceived here from Henty Aunt, a well
known Sau Antonio mechanic, now
in Los Angeles, Cal.. draw a deplora
ble picture of tho Industrial condition.
Wages there, he says, have dropped
until they are below living rates.
The most skilled mechanics can ob
tain only mere pittances and thoro
are three good rn,en turned away
where one is hired. The country is
very dead and business is at a com
parative standstill. Many Texans
there are flat broke and would barter
their lives for a chanco to get back
home. Many of thorn struck Los
Angeles when the boom was at its
helcht. and have beeu livinir from
hand to month ever since. Tho letter
closes with tho words: "For God's
sake don't come to California unless
you havo a return ticket."

troller were both to blamo. While
Gov. Boss' frieuds aro busy , saddling
it on Comptroller McCall, the latter
lays it to tne finance committee of tho
recent legislature, which did not take
action on the subject as proposed by
tho comptroller. The annual amount
necessary to pay tho abovo officials
in criminal proceedings JJs $450,000.
McCall's proposition was to appropri
ate $150,000, but as it is tho officials
have to lose a largo per cent, paid tho
banks on their dues. The governor
and comptroller are powerless in the
Denth from Alleged Malpractice.
San Antonio, July 18 The death
of a Mexicau child" was roportod to

Inir attended the deceased, a burial
cortlficato was withheld until an ex
amination could bo made into the
cause of death. Tho child was the
1-year old Infant of Josept Felan, on
South Pecos street. From tho evi
