Election day having passed with

Should the Chilian menofwar tako
a notion to sail up the California coast
bent on bombarding San Francisco it
is possible they may discover two an
cient smoothboro cannon planted for
defensive purposes at the entrance of
the harbor It is suggested that there
are a few ironjawed old smoothbores
in Texas who have been going up and
down tho land howling about saving
the country that might be spared as re
inforcements to assist the California
cannon in blowing the invaders out of
tho water
The trend of diplomatic movements
as viewed from tho distance would
seem to indicate that Chili will apol

sorry for she is glad of it Then well

The Knights of Labor convention in
Toledo Ohio reported a membership of
27000 These figures appear to be in
correct It is well known that there
has been a great decimation of tho ranks
of that order since its perihelion about
1S8G but the decline can not havo been
so great as to reduce the order to so
insignificant a number as 27000 Five
years ago tho Knights claimed a mem
bership of over a million and this
claim had the outward appearance of
being true and the figures reported
now if correct show a loss of about
nineteen out of every twenty members

AT an expense of but 532000 more
than thirtyfour miles of road havo
been graded and graveled by convicts
in Tarrant county in addition to grad
ing but not graveling twentyodd miles
This work was done under great dis
advantages and not always with skilled
superintendence or under competent
direction These roads have cost the
county about S1500 a mile They are
not as good as such roads should be
that are intended for permanency and
a large traffic Such roads as are de
manded will probably cost not less
than 3000 a mile but at this price the
revenue of 30000 a year will add ten
miles to our road system and the con
vict work will add almost as many
more Within five years at least four
good roads will extend from Fort
Worth to the county lines with neces
sary lateral roads penetrating the
most populous neighborhoods and
linking the whole county to the city
The prompt and explicit denial by
Hon Roger Q Mills of tho slanderous
statement originated by tho correspon
dent of a paper interested in compass
ing his defeat for tho speakership has
materially strengthened his canvass It
has afforded many congressmen who
might hitherto have regarded the con
test between tho several aspirants for
the place in a spirit of lukewarmness
a glimpse of tho manliness of character
displayed by the distinguished Texan
in declaring that he does not intend to
go buttonholing around the lobbies of
the capitol exacting private pledges
from members to support him like a
beat constable electioneering for votes
but that ho will rise or fall by the re
cord he has made during his many
years of public service in fighting tho
battles of the Democracy both inside
and outside of congress Manliness
and straightforwardness in action are
rare qualities among politicians seek
ing office and are therefore all the
more admired by mankind in general
It would seem that it remained for the

There seems to be a difference of
opinion between Senator Sherman and
Governor McKinlcy as to what it was
that brought about the great Republi
can victory in Ohio Senator Sherman
declared the victory to be wholly due
to the financial question as discussed in
the state Maj McKinley who has
gone to New York to take a short rest
was not agreed with this proposition
He li3d evidently read Senator Sher
mans interview and without alluding
to it directly in answer to the question
as to whether the Democrats were dis
posed to shirk the tariff issue the gov
ernorelect said
Why no Has any one suggested
that we didnt have tho tariff in the
campaign The Democrats accepted
the issue on the tariff immediately and
fought us That was manifest to
everybody I do not know how they
could leave the tariff out of the cam
In another place the following ques
tion and answer aro given What
were the relativo importance of the
tariff question and the silver question
as the voters considered them To
answer that direct wduld really be of lit
tle consequence for what I should say
would be merely a matter of conjec
ture We made no Republican gain
either in Cincinnati or Cleveland the
great commercial centers where the
silver question would have been more
likely than in any other part of the
state to havo influenced the result Our
gain was in other sections of the state
The Democrats didnt discuss the silver
question at all It is very evident
that Maj McKinley does not propose
to allow John Sherman to take the
credit of having carried Ohio He in
tends to have as he is entitled tosome
of the credit for himself
It is seldom that a president has in
the latter half of his administration as
many juicy political plums to be
stow as are now at the disposal
of President Harrison First is
tho appointment of nine circuit
judges who will of course all bo friends
of the president A vacancy in tho
court of claims must ba filled and a
suitable man found for the war office
to succeed Secretary proctor Civil
Service Commissioner Lyman having
resigned the president must find some
colorless fellow good only at winking
when the civilservico law is violated
to take his place A fit man must be
chosen for the Chinese mission some
Republican of course unobjectionable
to the Chinese court if such
can be found Two interstate
commissioners have been se
lected it seems but no ap
pointments have as yet been made
It is a pity of course that the law re
quires one of these to bo a Democrat
A recorder of the general land office
must be appointed and ho must be a
negro too or all Senegambia will howl
for it A governor must be found for
Oklahoma vice Steele resigned and a
third assistant secretary of state also
to fill a vacancy in the department of
To be sure there are patriots enough
applying for these places to supply the
entire civil service if parceled out
But it was needless to state that The
whole world knows with what jealous
and watchful care Republicans regard
the public service Never through any
inadvertence or remissness of theirs in
allowing offices to go begging shall it
suffer detriment or damage Of that
sort of patriotism the Republican camp
is as full as Russia is of political rot

Upon trial it was in evidence that
the language quoted aboyo was spoken
by the offender and that he looked as

portentous The mayor is a d d
dude Not only aro these words pro
fane and shocking but they evidently
cover a hidden meaning Sergeant
Buzfuz discovered a world of mystery
and villainy in Mr Pickwicks re
markable words chops and tomato
sauce These words were innocent as
compared with the anarchistic formula
of tho Chicago enemies of law and
Well what of it Let us say that
the mayor of Chicago is a dude a
d d dude too if you will have it so
What are you going to do about it He
was elected to his office by virtue of the
Hon Carter Harrisons diversion in his
favor If he is a dude tho people of
Chicago must have known it at that
time and though he got but little more
than a third of all the votes cast he
got more than either of the other can
didates and was elected Now the an
archists describe him as a dude pre
fixing a descriptive epithet that implies
comtempt even if it does not conceal
more of a hidden meaning than the
words themselves convey
But the Chicago police are equal to
tho emergency The rash reviler of
themagisterial dignity was as wo have
said seized by them and haled before
the authorities for his dangerous and
riotinciting utterance What the out
come may be we can not foretell but

and alleging that in his conveyance to
Measles he reserved the right to sue for
damages to the land He made Measles a

and asked that damages to the land bo
awarded him instead of appellee Verdict
for appellee against both defendants Heldr
Appellee was entitled to recover for dam
ages resulting from the construction of the
road and damaces to the remainder of the
tract but Appellant Measles would be en

from Ellis Suit by appellant to restrain
by injunction a sale of certain cattle levied
on by virtue of a writ of execution 1 The
true rule in such cases as this is that to en
title a party to relief in equity he must
show first that his failure to make full an
swer in the suit in which the judgment was
obtained was not attributable to his own
omission neglect or dofault and second
that ho had a good defense to the entiro
cause of action or to such part of it as he
proposes by his petition to litigate It is
not enough to show that he was not guilty
of neglect in permitting the judgment to co
by default but he must also clearly show
that it is inequitable and unjust to permit
the judgment to be enforced H9 Ala 24

M B Lloyd vs City of Fort Worth from
Tarrant Suit by appellee to recover of
appellants as bondsmen for defalcation of
one Blackman as city assessor and collector
of Fort Worth Blackman entered on his
duties April 221885 and the city council
having canceled his bond on June 31SS5
on the same day he executed a new bond
with different sureties Appellants were
sureties on the first bond 1 The excep
tions to appellants special pleas were prop
erly strickenj out The city council was
without authority to release the obligors on
an official bond and we further think that
the expression canceled as used by tho
council must be held to apply to future and
not past responsibility The sureties must
be charged with knowledge of the want of
power of the city council to release them on
the bond 2 The court erred In refusing the
following charge The Jury are instructed
that in no event can they find a verdict
against defendants for an amount larger
than the smallest amount that the evidence
shows Blackman to have been indebted
to plaintiff at any timo subsequent
to June 31S83 and prior to his resignation
with interest thereon from January 1
1846 The evidence shows that at one
time he was in default for a smaller
amount within tho time named than the
sum for which judgment has been obtained
against appellants Reversed and re
