chored in the lower harbor, where she has been
for about. a week. It is claimed that she is

On her Inst voyage to Constantinople she was

The Senator. that WIII Support tue
Presieent'. Civil Service Policy.
[New York Herald.]
WAsnINaO'ros, Got. 13.--The I'resident's
lcvil service policy will come up in a
very practical shape before the Senate
as soon as nominations are sent in for
confirmation. There has been a confer
ence of leading Democratic Senators on
the subject of their attitude in this mat
ter, and their conclusions are positive
that they will vote to confirm good men
regardless of the existing and vicious
custom of leaving the ;onflrmation or
rejection of the President's appolnt
ments to the party majority. It is be
Hleved that the Republican senators will
-beealled-to a caucus, In which an ea ftrt
will be made to induce all to agree to
confirm or reject on the reports of com
mittees, continuing also the old customs
of allowing the Republican Senator
from each State to control the patron
age of his State and to procure at his
own will the confirmation or rejection
of persons nominated within hbs State.
If the Republicans should agree to act
upon this old practice, which is called
the courtesy of the Senate, the Demo
crate will naturally not interfere; but
there is reason to believe that some Re
publican Senators, friendly to the Presi
dent, will refuse to be bound by this
mischievous rule, and it is certain that
if any stand out they will find the
Democrats ready in a body to help
them confirm men on their merits.
Under the circumstances the interest
ing question arises, How many friends
of the civil service policy can the Presl
dent muster in the Senate ? Among the
Republicans Senators Booth, Matthews,
Christiancy, Hoar, Dawes, Elmonds,
Wadleigh and Cameron, of Wisconsin,
are thought likely to stand out against
caucus agreements, and there is at least
a probability that half a dozen will be
found to confirm or reject on the merits
and without regard to the "courteay of
the Senate." Thus Senatorial patron
age may get a fatal blow early in the
session, which will be a most important
step in the reform of the civil service.

fair will be a de cided success. Western Texas
is becoming, year by year, morn of a farml ng
coulntry; and an imiprovedt nmethiod may be
observed in all farm operations,. Still It Is
decidelly in its infancy, and vast strides are
necessary to catch up with the spirit of older

Han Antonio is to have the waterworks
after all. TheI contract has been signed for
some time anti ground has Ibcn broken.
They are a vital n.c.ssit,y to the hnalth of the
city, which, however remarkable, has yet
suffered from defoective woerage and water
polluted with uirfaco d rainings.
The city railroadl still hangs fire. I cannot
learn that the comipany is taking any steps
towards building it. The rity Is, however,
growing so rapidly; so many line residences
and business honises have been finished alAd
are in process of construction, that wator
works, street ralr'oauls, a theatre, and all
modern improvements must soon be added.
The unrivalled water power which Man An
.mnio possesses rendiors a spteedl tntroduction
of cotton and woollen factorles a certainty;
and with them will begin an accelerated
growth--an enlarged prosperity. The exton
sivo building operations now going on are
not the work of new comers, but wholly that
of the old popultitlon. In fact, our solid men
are beginning to unlock their strong boxes
and have embarked lIberally in building; but
are slow to perceive the lmportance of extend
ing aid to manufacturing enterprises. The
spirit rit must awaken in the near ftture. It is
impossible for it to remain long latent, with
the obvious openings for the profitable invest
ment of capital.
This region Is saflTrirg from a protracted
drouth. There has been little rainfall since
June and, except where there is IrrIgation,
ton is trtfy in the "ne. and yellow
'.ef." Fair-erups h.aWr hetn harves tl; in
some places abundant ones; but the yieldl In
this neighborhood has not equalled what was
anticipated. Still corn is selling at thlrty
cents lower than I have ever known it.
Western Texas is. greatly excited by the
au(aclous raids of the Mexican hborder
thieves. If the United States does not take
some more elliclent steps to put a speedy stop
to them, I think the endurance of our people
will not hold out much lodger. It
-ee-ds but a leader for them to take the
matter very determinedly in their own hands.
The governnment nrnume no longer daily with
this question. It is one vital to the interests
of Western Texas, and her people are b.Ing
murdered and robbedl daly, while several
thousand United States troops are kept upon
the seaboard, that should be guardng this
exposed frontier. It has hcorme patent to
the densest understanling that )lia', grant
ing his desire to supprOss these raidi, is ut
terly powerless to ellcet the smallest approxi
mation to such a result. The whole frontier
people on the west aide of the Rio Grandle
are-in full and active sympathy with the rob
iers. Nothing but a sound thrasnnag will
quist these turbulent cut-throats. L. F. I.
