As AN evidence of the almost sinful waste
of the public domain, it is stated that the
Legislature of Florida have given away to
railroads from 2,000,000 to 6,000,000 more
acres of land than they had to give.
The Houston Tost would be more success
ful in its new role of attempting to be the
great State paper if it were more honest in the
matter ol credit for the news it bodily takes
from the outside papers. If an item is worth
copying into its columns it is worth crediting
and us small fry fellows think as much of our
abilities in the newspaper line as the larger
ones, and we are entitled to receiving what
ever credit we deserve.
The papers throughout the State comment
generally upon an item in the Light which
stated that $60,000 had been refused for a
corner lot in this city, and think the price
is somewhat exhorbitant. lint a glance at the
building permits issued every day is very
good evidence of the rapid growth of San
Antonio, and the constantly increasing price
of desirable real estate, and it goes without
saying that no other city in Texas is making
better material progress, both in business and
TUK LOUISVILLE EXPOSITION,
Much has been written about the position
and interest Texas will take at the Louisville
exposition, because of the want of a proper
provision in the State laws allowing appro
priation to be made for such purpose, and
the Henderson News, in an article upon the
subject, speaks quite plainly to the point in
"The only main object we could have in
wanting our resources shown up there would
be the ultimate increase of population and
capital from the favorable impressions that
would be made on the minds of those who visit
and read of the exposition. We, in the Eastern
portion of the State, suffer more from
this hurtful legislation than any
other portion. We have not had
the influx of people to run up the value of our
lands, as other sections of the State have had.
We have never had our resources shown to
the world, only occasionally by private means
furnished by railroads. The Governor's ap
peal for private aid, is clamoring lor a thing
that slumbers amid the dim impossibilities.
No man is going to hand out his money with
out any organized system for its application.
We have nothing to do but to lie down on
the bed that a majority of our representative
men have made for us. The golden oppor
tunity has passed."

The Sunday law in Galveston has waked up

sold at any hour. Sending and receiving tel

The jury were sworn in in the Polk
trial at Nashville yesterday, and the
examination of the State's witnesses
commenced. Fleming, a former clerk, was
examined, and said that in April, 1882, when
an investigating committee was appointed at
a special extra session of the Legislature, to
examine Polk's accounts in order to meet the
deficit from the defalcation of $200,000, they
found that Polk deposited a number of ficticious
drafts on various State depositories to make
Eod the amount. When the examination was
over, and the accounts were passed oa by the
committee, he withdrew these drafts and gave
his check for them, and so straightened his
books. The deficit increased on to January
I, iBoj, when it amounted to some $200,000,
when Polk left for Mexico. The witness de
nied all knowledge of the missing United
States bonds, amounting to $55,000. He
never saw them, nor heard of them until after
Til Desplned Trade Dollar.
Prom tho Scientific American.
Since July 1 the trade dollar has come Into
such disfavor that it no longer passes In this
city at par. The brokers are buying them at
85 cents, but Government officers advise par-
n iu, nccp luciu, imiiiiaung inai congress
will at its next session provide some measure
for their redemption. According to one of
our contemporaries, the trade dollar is intrin
sically of more' value than the modern silver
dollar, The trade dollar contains seven
grains more silver than the standard dollar and
is a better coin. Hut Congress never endowed
it with legal attributes. It was originally
coined for use in the Chinese trade, at a time
when our currency was paper, as a favor, it is
said, to the bonanza silver kings, who wished
to find some use for the product ol their mines.
Under the operation of a new law against
the importation of impure teas, more than
3,000 packages of tea brought from Shanghai,
i-ntna, and valued in the market, if sold, at
$20,000, were condemned recently by the ap
praiser at the pnrt of New York. The teas
were mixed with sand and gravel, exhausted
tea leaves, and dirt and paste rolled into pel
lets to represent dried leaies. In several in
stances the impurities were evident toan
inexperienced observer. When taken in the
hand and crushed between the fingers, the
sand was plainly visible.
About 500 packages of colored Japan tea,
of which a greater portion was dust, were' also
rejected alter a careful examination. This
tea was of high color and mixed with mineral
substances to increase the weight.
