New Gridiron Club Dives.
Washington. D C, January 29.
The Gridiron club, the swell banqueti
ng organization of tbe Washington
newspaper men, has a wrought iron
rule under wbich none of its members
are permitted to print or make way of
any use in type the speeches or re
marks made by guests of the club at
their periodical functions, and this
rule bas never been violated. Were it
not in existence tonight's banquet
might- afford some decidedly interest
ing reading for the 'guests sre to ic-
r-lude the new ambassadors from
Franre and Germany, the ministers
from China and Japan and Mgr Marti-
II i, the papal legate. With tbe
knowledge tbat Hi confidences will be
fullv resDected more than one of these
guests is likely to say some pretty
newsy things. In no other country on
the face of tbe globe could a dining
club of newspaper men get such a dis
tinguished galaxy around the table.

That's What the French Bal
in Gotham Was.
The Annual French Ball in New York
Proved to be More of a Wake Than
a Fes ivity, but a Fiuanciai Suc
New York, Jan. 29. The French
halt of wicked reputation, took place at
Mitdison Square Garden lat night, or
rather this morning, and hundreds wbo
bopep to see it in its prestioe glories
went away disappointed, xne Dig gard
en was packed, but there were nine
men to one woman and tbe proportion
was chilling. Most men were in street
clothes. A remarkable thing about
tbe crowd was its frankness. The men
and women did not put on masks. They
paid their money and walked in and
took eeats with calm deliberation, and
waitt-d for things to happen. With
stony stares they gazed upon ' the floor.
Some stayed an hour, some -two bours
and some longer. Most of them looked
sad when tbey went away. Tbe women
wbo were active participants did
not come out of their clothes any more
than the chorus girls in an hundred
comic operas and they shocked nobody.
There was not nearly as much display
in the direction of legs as ia seen any
night in the theatres. About 2 o'clock
this morning, however,' there were
signs that the crowd was coverirg its
sorrow in drink. The wine rooms
were the centers of attraction. On'y
champagne was sold but the incessant
popping of corks : was accompnnjd
only by an occasional dull thud as
some helpless individual fell to tbe
floor. The ball was a financial success
but it was a wake, not a - festivity
and a very sodden wake at that.
Gulf T ransportatiou.
Winfield Kas., January 29. Tbe
Gulf and Interstate transportation
committee of the state legislature, of
which Senator George Campbell is
chairman, is in session today for tbe
purpose of fixing the time ard place
for a national convention to discuss the
transportation question. In an ad
dress to the committer Senator Camp
bell said that the conference con
templated by tbe legislature wis
arousing public sentiment and public
interest and a demand for fair rail
road rates to be obtained both through
congress and the legislatures of the
states. At the present time the dis
crimination in rates in favor of foreign
goods nuiiined any good effect there I
were in protective tariff. Senator
Campbell also said that tbe governors
of seventeen state, including all those
between the Mis-i-sippi river and tbe
Rocky mountains had agreed to send
delegates t the gathering. Kansas
City, St. Louis, Topeka, Wichita and
Denver bad placed in nomination for
tbe place of holding the convention.
A receis of one hour was liken before
anyplace had been decided upon.

A Deserved Compliment to the New
Judge of the Thirty eight District.
The appointment of Gov. Culberson
of Hon I. L. Martin to fill the vacancy
in tbe Thirty-eight District judgshlp
appears to have given almost univer
sal satisfaction to the people of tbat
district, as Judge Martin was rep
resentative of El Paso wiih other
counties in 1895 at tbe state' legisla
ture. The folio ing from Judge Mar
tin's home paper, tbe Uvalde News,
will be read with interest by that gen
tleman's many friends here:
During the week the absorbing topic
of conversation bas been the successor
to tbe late Judge Archer. There were
a large number of applicants, t among
whom were I. L. Martin and J. N.
Garner of Uvalde, V. H. Blocker and
d. B. Easley of Hondo, W. W. Martin
and R. H. Burney of Kerrville, Leslie
Thompson of Castroville. Tbe claims ,
of the various cand dates were laid be
fore the governor by their friends and
in some cases tbe applicants also visit
ed Austin. Tbe governor held tbe
matter in abeyance until Tuesday,
when he announced the appointment
of i. L. Martin of this place. Mr.
Martin ha? always been a democrat
and his appointment will give satisfac
tion to the democrats of tbe district as
well as the people generally.
"Mr. Martin was born in Seguin a5d
reared in Pleasanton and San Antonio,
where he resided until 1876, following
the p- inter's trade, holding ca-es on
the old San Antonio Herald; and at
one time was connected with and own
ed an interest in tbe San Antonio
Daily Express. He went to Brackett,
where be was appointed deputy cleric
under his brother and in 1878 was elect
ed district and connty clerk of Kinney
county, being re-elected, in 1880. He
declined to run at the succeeding elec
tion, but in 1884 he was a candidate lor
county judge against a popular man,
but was elected by a Handsome majori
ty. It was during his IncumtK ncy as
county judge that he was admitted to
the bar. In 1886 he was elected county
attorney and re-elected in 1888, 1890
and 1892, and during this latter term
be was appointed district attorney by
Governor Hogg, but at first declined to
serve. However, on the urgent request
of the governor be accepted and his
cocduct of tbe office gave great satis
faction to tbe p ople Both as county
abd district attorney he was known as
a vigorous prosecutor, and the fear of
ihosiwbo violat-d the law. His re
cord of conv'ctions was equal to the
best. Although being eog-igrd in pro
secuting he built up a large civil p-ac-tice
and was recognized among tbe
best wbo practiced in this section of
Texas. 'The people again honored him
in 1894 by electing him to the legisla
ture, in which he made a reputation by
his persistent and consistent advo acy
of a measure to change the election
aws so as to better protect the ballot
box. He was also fouDd working and
voting for those measures wbich would
he of banefit to his constituency and
the state in general.
"It may be truly said that Mr. Mar
tin has conscientiously and faithfully
discharged every public trust and in
every instance wh- re be has gone be
fore the people tbey have endorsed
him. As a lawyr he is painstaking
and studious, giving attention to every
detail, and as a consequence we believe
no lawyer in southern Texas has a
better knowledge of the laws on the
statute books, or their interpretation
by tbe higher courts. As a county
judge he was seldom reversed, and hia
training since bas ben sucb as to oet-
r equip him for judicial duties. He
will bring to tbe offi e a wide exper
ience, an excellent knowledge of the
aw, and good common sense, those
qualities so necessary for the proper
discharge of tbe duties which will
devolve upon him. Tbe governor has
dene well in appointing him and the
district is to be congratu'atid. "
