Editor Gazette
I have read with interest a communica
tion from Mr J S Works of Iowa Park
Wichita county in The Gazette of the
7th inst
In my opinion the opening up of tho Fort
Sill country is a subject that directly inter
ests all who have interest in Texas and es
pecially tho people of the northwest part
of the state Fort Worth would
be largely benefited by the settlement of
that country by farmers It is tributary to
tho Fort and her board of trade
could and no doubt would use their
influence to assist in calling the attention
of the government to tho discrimination
practiced by tho Indian agents in favor of
the stockman as against the wouldbe act
ual settler
If the case is as Mr Works states it in
his letter which I am quite sure it is all
interested should investigate the matter
and do what they can towards having the
country thrown open for settlers
Fort Worth and all counties and towns
on the line of the Fort Worth and Denver
railway would bo benefited by the settle
ment of the Fort Sill country and it is but
right and proper that those who can
should assist in the good work
and not leave it all for
Works to do Mr Works has
devoted much valuable time and considera
ble money to this move and in case he suc
ceeds with this as ha did in the settlement
of Greer county the merchants of Fort
Worth and thoso located at Henrietta
Wichita Falls Iowa Park Vernon and
Quanah will all make good money out of it
In the Fort Sill country there is room for
101000 people and that number will be
there in less than sixty days after the
country is declared open
Speaking of Greer county I am informed
that there is a family on nearly every
quarter section in that county The
move to settle that county was
started by Mr Works and the result of his
work has done a great deal to build up Ver
non and Quanah and anything that bene
fits these towns and others on the Den
ver road naturally contributes to Fort
The work that Mr Works is engaged in
is eithor for lha good of Fort Worth the
Denver road and the people living on
the line of it or it is not
If it be good all hands should
take an interest and assist in the movement
and mako short work of it On the other

should be occupied by the white man we
skould do what we can to suppress the
movement It is not a case where we should

The Emperors Liquor Bill
Copyrighted 1S91 by New York Associated
Beblis Oct 10 After a long recess the
bundesrath or legislature representing the
individual states of Germany reassembled
on Wednesday The house considered as
the first order of the day the projected
law to repress drunkenness which as is
well known is a measure of the emperor
The fact that the initiative comes from the
emperor failed to commend the bill to the
bundesrath The majority of the plenipo
tentiaries declared that their governments
could not accept the project in its present
form The member appointed to the bun
desrath by the Bavarian government inti
mated that the state he represented de
sired no such liquor legislation as the bill
provided The bill ought he
declared to bo withdrawn The
Prussian member acting under instructions
from tho emperor was the only plenipoten
tiary who defended the measure The bill
was finally referred to a commission It is
certain that it will appear in the relchstag
transformed from an attack upon the liquor
trade into a mildly beneficial bill for the
protection of drunkards Liquor dealers
though feeling reassured as regards tho
adoption of the bill of sweeping reform are
arranging for the holding of a congress at
Stuttgart for the purpose of organizing a
political defense for themselves
The Socialist Congress
Special interest attaches to the Socialist
congress which will shortly assemble at
Erfurt A committee has revised the pro
gramme of proceedings which is now form
ulated with a clearness and precision necr
before seen in auy authorized
Socialist platform In ten resolutions tho
entire policy and economic plans are stated
They compose universal suffrage without
distinction as to sex proportionate repre
sentation voting on Sundays or holidays
tho payment of members tho popular
right to initiato or reject legislation pro
vincial and communal administrations an
annual vote on taxation a popular decision
as to peace or war tho creation of inter
national immigration tribunals the right of
free speech and free meetings tho aboli
tion of state subventions to churches
universal military instructions the militia
replacing the standing army tho secularli
zationof the schools free education free
justice that the judges be electod by the
people gratuitous medicines stuto sup
ported doctors a progressive incomo tax
the abolition of indirect taxation eisrht
hours for a days work an unbroken
repose for thirtysix hours weekly
for every workman the state surveillance
of factories mines and other industries
the formation of labor bureaus the co
operation of the workmen in the ad
ministration a universal state insurance
tho prohibition of tho employment of
children under fourteen years of age tho
prohibition of the truck system and the
right of workmen to form coalitions
Comprehensive as theso demands are
there are extremists in tho party who want
more If the young section dominated in
tho congress there would be some general
declarations against property and other an
archistic resolutions adopted
An Electrical Exhibit
The congress of Volksparter held at
Pforzheim approved the proposal to vest
the reichstag with tho right to determine
questions of peace or war
llie emperor Prince Henry of Prussia
and the Duke of Hesse visited the electrical
exhibition at Frankfort today They spent
two hours in looking at the exhibits
Upon leaving the emperor ox
pressed his admiration of the progress
that had been made in electrical appliances
During his presence in Frankfort an at
tempt was made to ascertain the imperial
opinion in regaiil to the Russian loan It is
renorted that his majesty said Bankers
can do what they please My peo
ple understand that loaning money to
Russia means war on us Nothing is now
heard of tho loan on the bourse Some
Jewish brokers may speculate but no Ger
man will invcit in it
A Spy Arrested
The German war office has been informed
of the important capturo of a
spy by the Austrian authorities
The man who was arrested at
Succsawa in Bukowina was discovered to
be a French staff oflicer Papers of a
highly compromisiug character relative to
the PrussoAustrian frontier were found on
now Texas Will be Itencfited by Such
Move and Why She Should Work
to Accomplish that End
work and will we derive a benefit in case
wo succeed J
That we can all assist there is cot the
least doubt We certainly can do if wa
will what the people and press of Kansas
did in tho way of opening up tho Oklahoma
country That wewould receive a direct
benefit no sane man will deny One hun
dred thousand people located in tho Fort Sill
country would be the next thing to having
them in Texas Their influence and busi
ness would insure the building of the Rock
Island and other roads to Texas in the near
future This would of course give us
cheaper co al and aid us in ways too numer
ous to mention here
Oklahoma with over 150000 people is
a benefit to Texas as it has helped to turn
the tide to the Southwest from the Middle
and Northwestern states and were it not
for the persistent efforts of the people and
press of Kansas and Missouri that country
would be a blank today as far as business
is concerned
The opening up of the Fort Sill country
would be tho means of flooding Korthwest
Texas with people and many would no
doubt locate on this side of Red river and
those who located in the Territory would
contribute to the building up of the coun
try on this side It is distance and popula
tion not state or county lines that counts
in business
Knowing tha good results of tho work
done by Mr Works for Greer county and
seeing the effort he is making to
repeat this in the Fort Sill country
and believing that he is right in
tho statements made in the columns of
The Gazette and being of the opinion
that those who are to be benefited by
the movement should assist in it
is my excuso or reason for
asking space for this letter If the settle
ment of tho Fort Sill country will insure
the building of tho Rock Island road
to Texas which it surely would
this of itself to say nothing of other indi
rect benefits we would receive is enough to
justify making quite an effort Yours re

Every true American should take an in
terest in the coming Worlds Columbian ex
position It was unwise that our legisla
ture made no appropriation for an exhibit
from this greatstato of ours but that cannot
now be remedied and as Toxans wo must
do our sha e towards properlyreprcsonting
our state Texas is being looked at now
by investors more than any other Southern
state and can we continue boasting of our
empire boundaries our snowwhite cotton
fields and all the other riches which tho
Creator has showered on this section and
then make no effort to substantiate these
wonders of speech by our more real won
ders of sight
The Columbian exposition will far sur
pass tho fatnousJCeutennial In fact it will
be second to none the world has over seen
Thoso of us who remain at home who
travel little and especially who have not
been abroad cannot realize the benefit aye
necessity to the United States that this ex
hibition will be Millions of dollars are
spent every year in Europe by Americans
Probably not onetenth of this sum is
brought back to tho United States by
foreigners traveling hero Why do wo
have hard times and complain of tho out
flow of gold to Europe Shall wo also put
a tariff on foreign travel Foreigners aro
very slow to acquire new fancies and new
extravagancies Few aro tho American
goods I have seen for sale abroad I have
seen our Indian corn thrown to the hogs in
Germany its value on our tables not being
known We have acquired a taste for
their every article of food clothing
and ornament Our ladies must wear
their costumes and uso their perfumeries
and soaps Our tables must have their
dishes our children their toys our sick
their medicines our men their clothing and
wines and even hens eggs are imported
It is money money monoy going out all
the time Nothing mado at home seems
good enough for us Every little town in
Texas scorns to buy Texas manufactured
goods Put a St Louis brand on them and
they will sell Put jour cottonseed oil in
foreign stamped bottles and it will sell as
olive oil Every American who has eaten
his six foreign olives must crave thereafter
ali foreign delicacios You know it
shows breeding and culture and travel
never to be satisfied with
home things Most Americans who
return from Europe must hae thereafter
foreign goods And how do we pay for it
By the toil of our farmers by our cotton
wheat and pork The farmers aro continu
ally upbuilding what our foreign palated
Americans are tearing down Can Galves
ton be made a great city if her citizens buy
all their goods in Houston J Can Texas
grow rich if St Louis remains lorover her
smokehouse and everything wo eat driuk
wear and manufactured implements ba im
ported Can the United States afford to
import luxuries at this rate Ours would
be the richest country in the world if our
industries were recognized and patronized
Wo try to stimulate by a protective tariff
what we as Americans should foster ami
encourage to success on a free trade basis
We now have an opportunity to educate
our people to a greater patriotism and to
advertise the riches of our country as they
never have been A largo majority of the
traveling American public are batter ac
quainted with Europe than with tho natural
wonders of our own country If we have
not freo trade wo have at least free travel
Lct us make a grand and glorious exhibit
of our nation at Chicago Let as not dis
appoint the hundreds of thousands of
foieign travelers whom we expect Let us
bid them welcome to every state Many
will remember our luxuries and call for
them at home many will hear again tho
echoes of our great waterfalls and
return somo day to visit our pieturesquo
shores Many will see in tasscled com
and golden grain and snowwhite cotton
fields an attractive feature and something
to draw them permanently to us Our cities
will surprise them our railroads please
them and our future impress them and
when we go abroad to sell our securities
we will not be treated as mere adventurers
They will have seen ua and know that our
collateral is good Travel in America up
our mountains and down our valleys in our
cities and on our lakes is what we want
For once let tho balance of travel be this
way For one summer let the 50000000 bo
blotted out Let us all united bid them
welcome and give them something worth
seeing and many will bo tho happy returns
on our small investment

The Increase In the Number nt GIumfc
The rapid increase in the number of
those who are obliged to wear glasses now
adays especially children is so alarming
that we are at once driven to the conclu
sion that the human vision is now more
defective than ever before But such U
not the case Formerly spectacles were
thought to be necessary only for the old
and the idea of chiltlre wearing glasses
was considered the greatest absurdity
Fortunately this erroneous idea is fast
dying out With the advancement of
science and the discovery of certain de
fects of vision hitherto unknown the pub
lic are becoming better educated and are
not slow to apply the remedy when any
defect of vision Is found to exist But
much still remains to be done in this direc

A Story < if Two Cattle llirnuf
One of the stories of the rapid rise and
decline of the cow bnron owes authorship
to Colonel Jim Bntton in the days whe3
Texas had a railroad commissionexship
with only ornamental functions Colonel
Bntton was appointed to fill It While he
was commissioner Colonel Ilritton went
out to Abilene The time was the tlush
period of the cattlemen Millionaires were
thick At one of the exchanges of Abi
lene Colonel llritton was a witness to a
controversy between two of the new mil
lionaires These cattle barons had just re
turned from their first trips to New York
where they bad gone to get rid of some of
the profits and to have a royal time
Jim said Jake thats a pretty lins
watch youve got there
Yei replied Jim I got the ticker of
a fellow in > ev York Its the finest in
Well continued Jake drawing one
better one
im Whatd It
Paid 323 for her said Jake Whatd
you give for yours
Cost me SS0 answered Jim with a
triumphant grin
Jake was blue over the discovery that ha
didnt own the costliest watch in Abilene
He stood holding the now despised chro
nometer in his hand and looking nt it
Bracing up after a few moments he said
There aint much difference between em
But Ill bet I can throw mine farther than
yon can yours
Everybody laughed and looked at Jim
The latter was not to bo bluffed Quick as
a flash he replied Ill just go you one on
The crowd went ont into the rocky
street A scratch was drawn It wks
agreed that the man who throw his watch
the farthest should have what was left cf
both watches They threw and the fellow
who won led the way back into tha Ex
change and set up tha drinks
