The extra session of the Legislature that is
to meet on the second Tuesday of January
next will have considerable business to attend

legislation that is needed and act accordingly,
The Hon. John G. Carlisle, of Kentucky,
is the youngest prominent Democratic candl
dato for the Speakership of the next House
of Representatives. He was 4S years old on
September 5. Mr. Cox was 59 on September
30, and Mr. Randall was 55 on October 10.
Messrs. Morrison and Converse, who have
been named as in the race, are respectively

The Lioht has received the extra edition
of the San Marcos Free Press, and we are
free, to say that It contains a most elaborate

resources and advantages, and cannot help
but be productive of much benefit to the
county generally. Mr. J. II. Julian, editor of
the free Press, has done excellent woik In
this special edition, and he should receive a
liberal support for his enterprise.
Governor IIutler undoubtedly Is more
sensitive regarding newspaper assaults against
him that the public realised, and he is re
cently quoted as saying! "Don't believe
anything you read In the newspapers about
me, because they will be lies. When this
campaign it over, so that a paper will be
c liable, for they are not liable for the political
things they publish during a campaign, if they
then publish any lie about me I'll try and see
II there's any law or justice In the land."
The Dallas Times says : "It Is rtmailta
ble what a good natared people we have in

manager in the North can gather together a

opera troupe, borrow the music of one of Gil
bert & Sullivan's operas, and come to Texas
and make a pot full of money. We are will
ing to stand it. If the troupe can't sing we
are charitable enough to declare it Is because
this poor things have had colds or their liver
pads have been weakened by time. This
easy, generous disposition Is well enough If It
were not Imposed on, Texas pays its money,

1)1.11101- Fallows made a speech at the
meeting of the Army of the Tennessee and
closed it with the following peroration 1 "And
may the very heavens catch the echoing
strains of that grand orchestral song, which
must roll onward and upward from source lo
mouth ol our thousand-leagued rivers, from
base to top of our sky-kissing mountains,
from center to circumference of our ocean
like prairies, as it breaks from the lips of na
tive American, tamed Indian, and African,
Saxon and Norman and Dane, of Scandina
vian, German and Celt the song of 60,000,
coo of joyful people, filling in Its 'sweep con

of the Union and the melody of freedom.

I'llE Street Car company propose soon to
extend lis lines on East Commerce street to
Walnut street, and on South Floies street, and
also up North Florcs street, which would give
a continuous line from the noith and south
pottions of the city to Military plan, llutthe
iiuestion of the proposed extension up North
Florcs street is one that Is likely to be produc
tive of much discussion and litigation. There
is no question but what that poitlon of the
city needs a line, but It Is an open question
If it would not prove more satisfactory if lo
cated a street or two further west. North
'lores Is really the only thoroughfare lo the
springs which is suitable for carriage driving,
and a street car line through it would, of
course, ruin It for that purpose. The proper
ty owners along its length, believiag that such
would be the result, express a determination
to test the matter through the medium of in
junctions If the Council committee report in
favor of the company. Hut it Is to be hoped
that the question can be arbitrated satisfac
torily both to the properly owners and the
company, and the Improvements be made at
1 early a day as possible.
Tup. Houston Post observes: "The papers
are full of MajirTom Ochiltree, "the member
from Texas," who has marched up the
European hill and has marched back again.
The substance of the gallant Major's inter
views forms more racy reading than the public
has seen for many a day. In lact, the Post
remarked to itself that a good newspaper man
was spoiled In making a red-headed, and,
therefore, doubtful statesman. There is more
real talent and vitality in Tom Ochiltree's
loose chat than there Is displayed In the
laborious speeches of the usual Congressman
throughout his full term. The Post notices
that some of its contemporaries, journalistic
and personal, are disposed to rear and kick at
the mention of the Ochiltree and to ostracise
the Red Ranger without trial, probation or
any such thing. To our conlrcrcs we would
say, go slow on this point; Tom Ochiltree Is
a very clever man, both In the English and
the American sense of the word. It is far
better to have such a man as a friend than as
foe. Besides Ochiltree is a Southerner,
a very old Texan for his age, and before he
goes back upon his State in any practical man
ner his red head will turn as grey as moss.
Give him a chance, and we shall see what we
The Wacs Examiner Is bidding for the
holding of the proposed bl-centennial celebra
tion of Texas Independence in that city In
1S66. If there Is any patriotic sentiment in
the matter, San Antonio is the place where
such a celebration should be held, for it is
here the Alamo Is and the place where the
sacrifice of the lives of so many Texan heroes
made the war for independence most memor
able In the annals of history. Here are the
graves of Bowie and Crockett and Travis and
Milam, and the scores of time-honored
patriots who died fighting for the life ol a re
public and whose blood was shed freely In
that cause and In that defense. Such a cele
bration in San Antonio would be commen
surate with the heroic achievements of the
past and the grand progress of the present,
and would be, in fad, a celebration on the
ground dedicated lo the cause that made the
Independence possible. The Light lias no
desire to detract from any claims made or
presented by Waco, but we suggest that San
Antonio would be a place more in keeping
with the event by reason of its historical asso
ciations than any other one place In Texas.
The Laredo Times has the following re
garding the able administration of Colonel C.
G. Brewster as Collector of the Port of
Brownsville, and his officers, on the Ulo
Grande : "It is well known that a great deal
has been said about gigantic smuggling oper
ations in this Immediate customs district, and
many unjust, unkind and untrue things have
been said of Colonel Brewster, the collector
at this port. That petty smuggling is going
on, will be admitted ; that cannot be pre
vented. But that there is anything like sys
tematUcd introduction of contraband mer
chandise is unquestionably false, and the
enemies of Colonel Brewster simply make the
charge against him to Injure him. As a proof
of what we assert, the Times will state that
Messrs. Fly and Thatcher, two ol the best
officers on the river, returned last evening
from an inspecting tour. They went up the
river a distance of 90 odd miles, and had the
services of a discreet and well trained spy,
Those gentlemen report that they were una
ble to see, or even hear of any Illicit trading,
and their ramifications of the territory along
the line of the river, the entire distance trav
eled, were most perfect. They saw nothing
o Indicate that smuggling was going on, and
their opportunity for observation was ample.
Thus does another slander of Colonel Brews
ter and his officers go to Ihe wall,"

A MYSTERIOUS MURDER.
A Woman I'mind lleiid Her llmployer Ar
rested, Charged with tlio Crime.
Lincoln, III., October 20. Zora Burns,
who had been employed as a domestic In the
family of O'Brien a carpenter, and a promi
nent and wealthy resident of this city, was
found dead near the outskirts of the city one
week ago, her body bearing alt evidence of a
desperate murder. Her throat wes cut from
car to ear, her skull crushed in, and her arms
bear evidence that she had a furious struggle
with her assailant.
Ever since the discovery other body the
entire community has aided the detectives in
ssarch for her murderer. It was learned she
had been engaged to a young farmer named
Dukes, and suspicion pointed somewhat
towards him; but during Ihe past two days the
chain of apparently criminating circumstances
has been wound around her former employer,
the carpenter, which resulted in his arrest this
afternoon. Upon Investigation it was dis
closed that Zora had left his employ and re
turned to the home of her father, in a village
near Lincoln, and on the day preceding her
death came to the city and paid a visit to the
carpenter's office, icmalning wilts him an hour
alone. He was the only person she visited,
so far as known, while here, As to the nature
ol her dt, the carpenter related a story plain
ly belied by the facts subsequently disclosed.
It was also discovered that the dead girl
was encicnte, and testimony of various parties
was tenderd to show he had supplied the girl
with money and had Written her various let
ters. The bartender pf the Nolle house here
testifies the carpenter purchased from hlrn
half a pint of whisky the day of the murder.
An examination of the carpenter's buggy to
day ditcloied the fact that the cushion, lines
and shafts were plainly marked with blood,
and on this discovery a warrant was Immedi
ately sworn out for his arrest. He was lot
lowed to the jail b) a large and excited crowd.
The accused is credited with being the wealth
iest resident of Lincoln, owning a large grain
elevator here, farm near the city and other
property. He has a wife and two daughters.
