ONE MORE UNFORTUNATE.
Another Important Failure on
In addition to the failuic of Mr.
Barney Feldhake, which occurred on
Saturday afternoon, another took plnco
Saturday night at S p, in., attachments
wero run on Mr. Jas, Askew, proprie
tor of tho Palace saloon, ono of the
largest saloons in tho city. The at
tachments Saturday night were as fol
lows : W. H. Dunnica for I2.4G5.29
Leasing, Solomon & Hosenthal $215.
75, and J. G. Koaoh & Co., of Louis
ville, Kentucky, for $401.62.
Since Saturday night the following
attachments havo been run: Mayer,
Conn & FViburg, Galveston, $177.00;
Tripis & Kemendo, ,$i2.84; Wood &
Lee, St. Louis, $993.00; O. P. Morri

Gas Co., 80.00; Licbes Bro. & Co., Sun
Francisco, 20J.00, Slraus, Tritz & Co ,
Cincinnati, 424.00. The failure ex
cites a good deal of surprise, and a
very general sympathy is expressed for
Mr. Askew. The place is?, in posses
sion of Shciiff Ford, and stock is be
ing taken to day, with .Messrs. J. P.
Wooa, Fred Kingsbury and Jas.

The Meeting Saturday Night.
The meeting on Saturday night at
the court house is to dlsouss the feas
ibility of establishing a large man
ufactory of sugar from sorghum cane,
"by the new diffusion process, suoh as
iinow in, operation jln Kansas. Mr.
R. J. Sledge will be present and pre-'
sema'iormai plan lor co-operation.
'At thetoformal meeting on Saturday
Mr,'Sledgo stated lhat the contem
plated works would cost about $100,
jOOOand that If Waco would donate
land, he could aecuro enough capital
in the east to put tho works In opera
tion, that cotton seed oil mills could
be run by tho same machinery and
that the object of tho alliance in en
deavoring to start suoh works was to
break the cotton seed oil trust.
The manufacture of brown sugar
from sorgbum cane is a pot industry
of the national government, which
two year ago took the industry un
der its fostering wing. Congress ap
propriated $360,000 for experimental
work at Fort Scott and detailed a
government chomlst'to take charge of
the experiments The 'experiment
was a successful one, and Kansas has
two groat sugar manufactories in suc
cessful operation if not more, one at
Fort Scott, the other at Tepeka. The
business is said to be very remunerat
ive and the manufacture of sugar
ftqmiorgham cane.by the new diffu
sion process, is" thought to be a revo
lution in the sugar producing indus
tries. Tho matter will be fully ex
plained at the meeting. Senator
Coko, is said to be in ardent sympa
thy with the movement to establish
sueh works here aud a communication
from him on the subject, will proba
bly be a feature of that meeting.
The sale of the. Shaker remedies
which goes on on tho square, daily, is

remedies havo a world-wide reputation
being made from herbs 'and plants
alone, and are said to be as efficaoious
as 'they are harmless. An excellent
quartette discourses subtile musio and
the concerts aro listened to with de
light while tho remedins are being sold.
If you haven't heard the musio, seen

The failures which have ocourred 'in
the last few days are pretty generally
considered as tho results following natu
rally from three bad crop years in suc
cession, the misfortunes of which are
not counterbalanced by ono good crop.
It is less a wonder that so many fail
than how any except tho very strongest
houses could have stood. ' The hope is
felt that the worst is over, and a new
era to be besun. It is bad tn.fail.i but
to fail just as-the oity is beginning to
