There are conilloting accounts of the
number of Mexicans engaged In this
battle, but 2,500 is a conservativo es.
timate. Of these, probably not less
than 800 wore killed and wounded.
The extraordinary number of Mexi
cans killed In all the engagements of
the Texas revolution is explained by
the ftct that the Texans were mostly
from Kentucky and Tonnesso, men
who could bark squirrels with a rifle
all day long. Such marksmen rarely
missedaiA large a targot as a Mexican.
In fact, almost all the Mexicans killed
in these fights were shot through the
head. The writer remembers seeing
in the old Campo Santo, of San An
tonia, a plie of skulls, each one of
which was bored by a rifle ball. These
were the skulls of Mexicans who fell
in -what was known as " The Grass
Fight," near that town. rho Mexi
cans labored under the double disad
vantage of being armed with old-fash
ioned escopetas or blunderbusaes.
Much better troops suffered simIlar
disastor at New Orleans at the hands
of the same type of American soldiers.
When the Alamo fell, San Antonio
Was a small Mexican vlilage. Now it
is a progressivo American city of 50,
)00 inhabitants. with watorworks,
alectric lights, rapid transit, schools,
thurohes and all tho other require
rnents of the highest order of uodern

THE REGSTRIATION M[&T1EL.
The Indications ale that Judge Got
Will be Itoversed.
RICHMOND, Va., June 7.-The South
Carolina registration case cane ut
here in the United States court of ap
peals today before ChIef Justice Fulle
and District Judges Hughes and Sey,
mour. Fron the questions asked
counsel on both sides by Chief Jussic(
Fuller it is thought that Judge Got't
order of injunction will be dissolved.
Attorney General Barber, of South
Carolina, opened the argument for
that, State. He began by asking the
court, to suspend the rule by which itt
decision would not be rendered until
the next term. The court said that it
would take its own course in that nat
ter. The attorney general then stated
tuhat tle whole proceodings wore
directed against South Carolina. He
contended that the federal courts did
not have jurisdiction in the casO in
which this injunction was granted.
HerO the attorney general cited cases
which held that the judiciary coual
not interfere in matters political and
that it was not wittiin the power of the
United Stutes courts to decide a ques
tion as to tihe rights of v,>trs. "Wer
the voters of Rlichland couity practi
cially disfranchised," said h, " very
grave questions tnay arise as to the
validity of any election hoid fur dele
gates to the constitutional convention.
It can not be denied that this is an
attOmi to stop an election." He also
contended that, tIe suit was in utfect,
one against the State of South Caro
lina and as such was in violation of the
constitution of the United States.
Attorney General l3arber stated that
if the compla' nant is a colored lua
it was not shown u upoil tihe recordb and
is an assumptioni of the circait judge.
He held that the registration law
made no discriminations on account of
race, color or prevo u01s condition.
C. A. Douglass, of Washington. fol
lowed "Mr. Barberanid argued for the
Comblplainit. tHe contended that the
registration laws were cnunbersome and
were intended to hinder registration.
T11 is he said was the scheme of tui act
He claimed that the act of 1882 was
ueonstitutioial as was also the act of
1194. Even after a man had registered,
siaid Mr. Ilouglass, lie haL( to have a
)ertificate and every time he changed
his place of residence, even if lie moved
from one house to another on the same
block, lie had to get another certificate.
ln case he lost his certificate he had to
get anotLher one and upon such linita
tions and provisions as would hardly
be required for a lost bank note.
Chief Justice Fuller asked Mr. Doug
lass if this did not apply to white
voters as well na coloredl, to which the
lawyer said that on its face it did.
AMr. D~ouglass als~o contended and saidi
that it could not be disputed that un
der' the act or 1882 the voters who ar
rived at thie age of 21 (luring the
months of Miay and J1unlo, 1882, and
did not register are today perpetually
H. N. Oboar, of Washmington, follow
ed M1r. Douglass for the complainant.
He bela that the slupervisor was not
an ofiler of the State until this court
hams pronounced the registration law
valid. Ho said they were not making
their attack upon tihe acts of the
register but upon the law which gave
him the power of one. He cout~ended
thlat, the right to Vote was in one sense
a political right but thai, it was als5o a
prloperty right andl as bluch may be prlo.
tected b~y the courts.
Edward McCrady, of Charleston,
closedl the argumwent on behalf of the
State. His remarks were fery brief,
ile claimed that the court had no ju
risdictioni in the ease andl cited a num
her of cases in which United Statet
judges had held that courts of equit.y
could not interfere withl matters p)oliti
Upon0 the conclusion of the argument
next Tuiesdlay was set as the day upor
which bic.'i fs in the case should bc

THE CoTTON- PuOSPECT.-The New
York Chronicle has issued its annual
statement of 0otton acreage, stand and
condition. The estimated decrease In
acreage by States is as follows: Nor.h
Caraliia, 20 per cent. ; South Caro
lino, 10 per cent.; Georgia, 13 per cent.;
Florida, 5 per cent.; Alabama, 11 per
cent.; Missis4ppi, 10 por cent.; Louis
ina, 14 per cent.; Texas, 11 per cent.;
Tennessee, 9 per cent.; other States
and ,Territorles, 121 per cent. The
average decrease Is 11.6 per cent.
The acroage Is 17,767,663 against 20,
410,247 acres last year. The small do
cease in Florida is due to larger plant
ing of sea island cotton. Tle crop is
unquestionably late. The weather up
to May 2 was not lavorable. It is not
certain whether perilalent irjjury has
resulted or not. Probably serious
harm has resulted in only limittd
Cuitivation has not ben as thorough
as it was a year ago. There has been
very heavy decrease in the taking of
comtuercial furtilizers, but of home
wade fertilizer a slightly greater use
is reported. The conditition of the
liant was less satisfactory at the close
of the month than at the same (late
last year. TheStates of less promise
are the Carolinas and Georgia, but
the plant is late almost everywhere
and so is farm work. The condition
is not necessarily unpromising, but
