In Philadelphia, says the Timos, out
of the 1,500 lawyers in the city nine'

They are all religiously inclined, but

The Nineteenth Legislature only ap

This certainly would relieve the Nine

but the trouble was in iholr economy of
needed legislation.
Lot Wuia ht's displacement as marshal
of the southern district of Ohio gives em
inent satisfaction. There could be but
little doubt as to bis partisanship, but
that quality was as necessary to a Re
publican officeholder as was his
monthly draft on the treasury.
A man killed his wife in London the

Tub GleuRose Citizen is not far wrong
when it says in reference to a certain
candidate being good ' gubernatorial
timber, "but the boat of timber can be
soaked too long for special purposes.'
There is some danger, too, from the
mannor In which prohibition looms up,
of a good deal of that species of timber
being water-lnirgpd.
The speech of Judge Terbkli. at
Columoiu has boon very extensively

There can be but one opinion as to its

Tub City of Panama is reported quiet
and yet martial law is enforced there. It
may be the military will keep peace aa

house of too Arkansas man who had a

Uos. J. D. Taylok, who launohed
forth in that wonderful Ohio manifesto,
oubt to read this, from the Bolton
Reporter: "The citizens or Cameron
have invited bx-Pukhideici Davis to
be present at Hood's Brigade reunion
on the 27th." The spasms into which
bis patriotio frame would bo plunged
would equal the contortions of a bedbug
when touched with corrosive sublimate.
In reply to "PuuIIoub" TukIIkhald
weuld say that tho question on whl:h
the Uberuls were defeated was as to
the tax on beor. It was not as to
whether the revenue demanded should
be voted on or not, but whether it was
to be raised from beor or tea taxa lon.
It was a close vote and it Is said the
Irish contingent voted for tea to strike at
the government on account of Its reso
lutlon to renew the "Crimes in Ireland
Act." '
Thu difference botweou theCitvCoun
ell of Terrell and the School Board has
been adjustel, says tho Times, which Is
fortunate. Tub Ukrald notices many
tars in the development of the school
system, but.as "it requires time to settle
down uixiu unv particular nnllov. it l
not remarkable that those disturbances
rise. In truth it shows an earnostnesa
much preferable to the apathetto indif
ference which would secure perfect-
plain sailing.
The Marshall ilorald defines Its nosl
tlonoathe lease of the penitentlarlos
and soys that resumption has proved s
laiinio and. has been so demonstrated
by the experience of the past two years
that the last report of the penitentiary
management shows the couvlots are be
lng cared for at a loss to the State of $12,.
000 pi r month. This may all be true,
but one of the most dUlloult of State
problems to solve Is the quostlon as to
what Is bpst to be dono. Every plun yet
ueviucn nds oceu a failure.
Ostot tho most absnrd lnstauco if
the proinlsouuus use of the edl

The desperate straits of the Republi
cans Is shown In the character of
the proceeding of the recent con
vention at Springliold, Ohio. A very
small man, ' known ' as Mb. J. D.
Taylor, who was the temporary chair
man of the convention, made a speech
in which he doclared that "by a combi
nation of crimes, scoldents and blun
ders this government, with all its great
interests, has passed out of the control
of the party that saved it from treason
and disunity into the bands of a party
which through Its leaders sought for
four long years to tear It from its proud
place among the nations of the earth
and hurl Its dissevered fragments into
the vortex of anarchy and dissolution."
This is grandiloquent expression
from a small man, bnt the falsity borne
upon its face will rob It of an effect it
might otherwise have.
The Democratic victory of 1884 was
not won "by a combination of crimes,
accidents and blunders," but by an
universal uprising of the great
massos of the people who were heartily
tired of the "crimes, accidents and
blunders" that for twenty years had
characterized the party in power and
came well nigh "hurling" us into con
tempt among the nations, if not into
"anaroby and confusion."
Nor did the government In the fall of
1884 pass into the hands of a party
whose leaders had sought to-disrupt
the Union. Bayard, Randall, Til
den, Hancock, McClkllan, even the
President himself, wero all Northern
and Union men, and they are the rec
ognized leaders of the Democratic party.
They represent the best manhood and
thought of the United States, as they
represent its purest type of patriotism,
and certaiuly that element furthest re
moved from "anarchy or dissolution."
To such men the people have confiding
ly entrusted thoir bost interests, and in
such keeping thc-so Interests are abso
lutely safe.
At this Into daio it la liiorotlihle and
Impossible thRt anybody should bo iu
fluouced by such silly and disgusting
twaddle as that of this niiiu Taylor, or
of the Ohl j Republicans. It is one of
those States joined to Its Idols, and the
Democrats can, without any great loss,
afford to lot it alone. But the fact of so
dirty, unfounded and slaudurous an at
tack at this time when L'omocracy is so
valiantly striving to givo tho Union a
pure and good government, is hut
anotbor illustration of the dcp'.lis of i ; 1 -famy
and falsehood to which thtu cor

keep alive ancient pn jiulices and re
gain the power whi .-h they so long on-

The Quocu has accepted the resigna
tion of tho Gladstone ministry, the
dispatches say, and asked the opposi
tion to form a Cabinet, the Marquis of
Salisbury being the responsible head.
Ho has nolther the learning nor tVo
ursadtb of statesmanship that Mil.
Gladstone possesses, nor does he eu-
Joy from Europe or the world at large
that contldence which has been so un
stintedly given to Mu. Gladstone, but
he Is possibly the most powerful and
prominent of the Torios and Is the best
seloction the Queen could make from
the ranks of that party.
The Irish troubles still unsettled; tho
Russian dispute still undetermined;
the finances In a bad condition and the
Egyptlon questions forcing thomsolvos
to the front, with general disquiet
and dissatisfaction throughout an em
pire on which the sun never
goes down, the Tories or Conservatives
have before them in assuming power
and taking charge of the government a
most Herculean task. They may prove
equal to the occasion. More aggressive
than the Gladstone ministry, those
Tories may force Great Britain to tho
front again In European polltios, but all
the probabilities are that the loss of the
cautious and wise councils of a states
man like Gladstone, who Is at tho
same time a philosopher, will bogrlov
ously felt by England In her present
threatening complications with nearly
all the world.
Our correspondents from Ellis, one of
the representative counties of tho State,
Inform us that crops aro excellent and
corn, particularly, extraordinary, not
withstanding tho gloomy prognostica
tions of a few days since. Tho sime re
port as to graiu comes from nearly all
other sections of tho Stato, but the cot
ton la not so promising. Tho fact Is a los
son for our planters and farmors. There
Is scarcely a year in Texas wheu all
crops fail small grain and cotton and
until a greater diversity 1b observed In
the planting bard times may be annu
ally anticipated. If cotton fails wheat
and corn are gonorally good ; If wheat
and corn fall cotton turns out anion-
didly, so that tho lesson of the present
and, indeed, of all past seasons Is thst
tho greater the diversity in tho crops
the more small grain and the necossl
ties of tho tablo and home the more
prosperous will be our agricultural
population. Bad years will became
things of tho past.
The Republican correspondents from

Sam Jones, the groat preacher,

the dispassionate observer has scant

King Alcohol still sits enthroned, and

the prohibitionists deny thoir failures

other questions should be lugged In. By
the way, to-morrow the vote will be
taken in many places.
One of the most instructive lynch
ing ever committed was that upon
Terry, who had murdered a man in
Liberty, Virginia, undor most aggra
vated circumstances. It seems that
but a short time previous two murders
of a very scarlet charaoter had boon
committed one in Amherst and the
other in Rockbridge County. The mur
derers escaped on the plea of insanity,
and Terry's friends proposed to ac
quit him on the same defense. Fearing
this the people resolved to make insan
ity a dangorous pica In the future.
Both parties belonged to lflffco and lu

trouble has only commenced.

Tub National Cotton Exchange, un

west of It the situation Is decidedly more
favorable, while In the Mississippi bot
toms there is a marked advantage In ev

favorable Texas will produce a crop

May rest assured that -we
haven't a single' Straw
Hat in stock which has
been carried over from
last year. The goods
which wo are offering
for sale are all NEW
and FRESH.
Will perhaps remember
tho 0-iant Clearance
Sale, which we held at
the end of Ust summer,
when our remnant stock
closed out entirely.
Will please understand
that wo are prejudiced
against old goods even
if they ara of . ttaple
styles; neither dv we
care to hold on to gon-.-by
styles, no matter
' how fine the go jds
may be.
We will begin to clear ourselves
of many broken lines, find sell
many other Hues of Straw Huts
which we will be unable to
replenish at remarka
bly low prices.
