MONDAY, d'UNE 11, 1883.
THE devil, it is stated, quotes Scripture to
suit his own purpose. Ben Butler in his re
cent attempt to seduce the coloted people
from their allegiance to Ihe Republican party
imitated his Satanic majesty's example.
There appears to be no reasonable doubt
that Queen Victoria's health is gradually
breaking np.. The knee trouble has created
other complications of a serious character.
Her majesty is now unable to take much ex
ercise, and as she has a dropsical tendency
this in itself is a serious aspect.
Kellev, the fifth of the Irishmen convicted
of the murder of Cavendish and Burke; was
hanged on Saturday. These executions have
been much condemned, but they have had the
effect of doing much present good in restoring
quietude in Ireland. What the ulterior end
may be time alone can decide.
The Irish party profess to ridicule the
Pope's recent circular against illicit societies,
but those who know the Irish character, know
that if they are sincere in anything it is in
their religion, of which the Pope is the head
and corner stone. No document could be is
sued that could have such a beneficial effect
upon Ireland. It deprived the Land League
of many friends, renders it an-effete organiza
tion, and has a tendency fo create peace.
From Fort Worth comes the news that a
lunatic, placed in the same cell with two other
lunatics, has been killed by a fellow-prisoner
The Sheriff blames the County Commissioners
for not providing proper acc6m.nodation.
They are apparently somewhat better situated
than is Bexar county, but what has occurred
in Tarrant county may. occur here any day.
The Cawley murder was traceable to the want
of proper provision for the keeping of the in
sane, and who knows but what other tragedies
may arise from the same cause. The ci viliza
tlon of any nation, it has be'n said, may be
told by the care it takes of the sick, the luna
tic and its unfortunate poor. 'This is a good
standard, and, judged by It, Bexar county, and
indted the whole Slate of Texas, is weighed
in Ihe balance and found .wanting. Why
does not the city and county combine
and erect a proper place for the
care of the sick, insane and the poor, placing
them under such circumstances that two for
mer classes shall be cured as far and as speed
ily as possible. If the city and county can
not or will not do their duty in this respect
why not do as they do in Europe, erect and
support such an institution by voluntary con
tributions In Liverpool $250,000 were
raised at one meeting recently to build an
hospital. Americans are none the less liberal
or charitable, and if properly worked San
Antonio could have an hospital creditable
alike to the head and heart of her citizens.
Till! DKNISON SCANDAL.
The recent suicide of Miss Bayliss has been
the subject of considerable comment in all
parts of the United States, and is one that
brings home forcibly some Important truths
which parents nd young ladlei thouuld well
consider The facts of the case are romantic,
and yet il is the same old story. Four months
ago Miss Bayliss, the daughter ol a wealthy
horse dealer in Denison, went to dancing
school, and there became acquainted with a
young man with good personal appearance
and pleasant manners, Henry Burke. The
acquaintance ripened into love. They met
frequently and walked out without parental
hindrance. From' Mr. Bayliss' evidence, it
would appear the parents were ignorant ol the
acquaintance. Recently Miss Bayliss and
Burke, Miss Mabel Moore and Mr. Hughes,
friends of Miss Bayliss, went to Sherman.
The young ladies were, it is said
debauched, and returned home in a state of
semi-intosicition. The neighbors then talked.
Miss Bayliss' mother heard of it, and spoke
to her, on the subject Soon after Miss Hay
liss suicided, whether remorse lor her1 sin, or
annoyance at the neighbors' 'talk, was the
cauie of this is not determined. Burkelsnow
in ail lor rape, and lynching has been threat
ened. Miss Mabel Moore, after a silly at'
tempt at suicide, skipped and Hughes fol
lowed her eximplc. But Is there no one else
to b'amef Melancholy though the reflection
be, have not the parents in someway con.'
duccd to this sad result? What chaige was
kept over Miss Uayless that she could go to a
dancing school, there make an acqnaintance,
walk out with him, and then pay the visit to
Sherman unchallenged but by the neighbors,
talk. The fact is the.Baylises' did, as many
have done, and are stilt doing lo their own
cost. They allowed their daughter too . much
liberty. This is the mistake. What
occurred at Denison could as well occur here,
and those parents who value their daughter's
honor will do well to watch carefully that their
daughters are not lead into temptation. This
is the lesson taught by this episode. It also
teaches that young ladies should be careful of
their male acquaintances. One word in re
gard to Burke: He is made the
scapegoat of public indignation and
threats are made to lynch. him.
Even tome papers approve of his lynch
ing. Two wrorgs will never make a right.
If he had offended against the law, let him
answer the law, but let him at least have a fair
trial. We have no word to offer foror against
him as regards his guilt. All men are inno
cent before the laws until proven guilty. He
is Charged with having deliberately plotted the
ruin of Miss Bayliss. This may or may not
be the case. One thing is quite clear. There
is nothing to prove that the disastrous affair
was the result of deliberation. It may have
been the result of various circumstances which
have placed him in temptation under which
wiser and better men have fallen. In any case
let the accused have justice.
