country village, with, until reocntly,
no hopo or prospect of Attaining to
anything more. -
IWith tbe near approach of railroad
facilities, however, the scene has
changed. The coming of tbe Interna
tional at an early day is assured. This
alone will surely give a new impetus to
both town and county. The largo
Ixpaoscs of rich vacant land near
town must soon be occupied by thrifty
farmers. The stock-growing regions
of tho ccunt will aluo no doubt be
far more extensively utilised. The
sitea lor water power and other manu
facturing facilities will begin to be oc
culted and improved. In abort, the
dream cf a local rhymer will be no
longer a dream. Our extract Grot ap

But bh to whether tho mo.t hhultho
madu of our now era, almost every
thing depends on the preient popula
tion of our town- Will tbey; with t
wise foresight, lay broad and deep the
foundations of our prosperity? We
tru,t they will, and tbo movement re
ootilod olacwhero in our present issue,
in lavor of improved roads to the upper
counties, ia a most hopeful indication.
There should be no suoh word as fail
in this matter. Not only should these
roads be made, but others should.be
made good in all other directions
Good roads are the very arteries of
commercial lifo- Tbe best future of
our town is dependent upon our action
on' this subject. It is a vital matter
to San Marcos, and it will Dover do to
ignore or postpone it. Austin to-day
affords a "frightful example" of tbo
eonsequenocs of neglecting tho duty of
making good roads, and we should not
fail to profit by it.
All that we bavo said will, if we do
our duty, oonie to pass on tho advent
of tbe International alono. But this
is not all we may reasonably expect.
At latest advices there was a very
strong prospect that tbe Morgan road
would be extended to this place. And
this affords another strong reason for
our making good roads, for tho greater
extent of country that wo oan make
tributary to us, tho greater induce
ments the managers of said road will
see to coming here. If we can got tho
trade which has been going to Austin,
why should the Morgan road bo at tbe
UdeleuB expense of going there? Will
it not oertainly stop here?
One other illustration as to how we
may mako or mar tho future of our
town. Wo want more men of capital
sad enterprise to settle with us. And
they nro dicposed to come, provided
they can get property at reasonuble
prices. If ihcy cannot, they will go
elsewhere with their means. Is it not
i ..... i
tho obvious duty of thoso among us!
who have proporly for sale not to hold
it at exorbitant pricos, so as to repel
the olass of mon to whom we bavo re
ferred? Is it not clear that by sollinir
a part of their property to sueh parties,
oven at modorate rates, they will so
oohanco tho valuo of tbo remainder
that they will make money by tbo tranB
aotion? On tho other hand, if suoh
mon are driven away now by high prioes,
tho best effects of tbe coming of the
railroad will be lost to our town, rates
of property will not advance as they
nthorwieo would, capital aud enter
prise will seek more congenial chan
nels, and our town will be left, to a
large extent, in its old.stato of stagna
tion. Let us tbereforo take tho tido at its
Hood, and it will load us on to fortune.
San Marcos will probably nevor make
a very largo city, but if we will but use
effectively the leverage now placed in
our hands the will no doubt super
added to her attractions as a most
beautiful and healthful placo of reai
dence take a far higher rank in sixe
and business importance than her most
aaoguioe friends have heretofore ven
tured to anticipate.

We have not General Hanoock's let
ter of acceptance yet, to bo read with
Garfield's, but he has formally accept
ed the nomination, and the letter is
promised soon. There was a memor
able gathering of Democrats at New
York yesterday when the nomination
was announood and acoepted. It rep
resented every State, and every phase
of opinion in the party, and it is un
necessary to say, represented the wish
es and feelings of a vast majority of
our fellow-oitizcas. It will add to tbo
solid conviction already felt that Han
oock's election is sure aqd will tend to
bring about an "Era of. good feeling"
suoh as has not been known since
Of General Garflold's letter of ac
ceptance, two things should be said,
first that it is a well written paper and
that it is less dangerous to tbe Repub
lican party than was expected by the
party leader". It evades discussion
of many questions, and it leaves no
doubt upon even a Casual roadiog,
that it was written to answer
a party purpose rather than
to express tho author's honest senti
ments. It abuses the people of the
South, of course, for tbo Republican
party could cot bold together for a week
without distrust aud anger existed be
tweeu the sections. It promises or
tries to promiao, a relief to the Pacific
ooast people, on the subject of Chinese
immigration, which Garfield refused
to voto for a year ago. ,0a tho tariff
question it drowns meaning in a sea of
words. As to tho resumption of specie
payments it has to say, only what has
boon said by Republican politicians
for a long time, viz : that the Repub
lican party, and not good crops, the
Republican party, and not ecconomy
in government expenditures since the
Democrats contested the House
brought resumption about. On the
subject of oivil service reform it com
mends Hayes' ideas but says that the
local politicians know better than oth
ers who are the proper persons to se
leot for officers in their neighborhood.
Ilia position on "reform" therefore, is
similar to that of ensign Stebbins on
the prohibitory liquor law. "Iam for
that law," said Stebbins, "but agin its
This in the letter. Tnero is hardly
a seutence in it that is not disiugenu
ous. 1 expect a vastly different letter
from soldier liaucock, and one that
will impress all its readers with the
robust manhood ot our candidate.
Why Not Trust Hancock?
Why not trust Gen. Hancock with
tho administration of the general Gov
eminent as iU Chief Executive officer
for four years?
We do not recommend him as "the

We do not recommend him because

A (Mood Iflildaacee
There is one feature in llioprciidon
' l!i. I lunnm that all Hood citixeus on
! ki.f h sidtis have a riii lit to congratulate
thcmsclvei upon the ahFence of tbe
annoying and harassing &cutqorn
question that lent bitterness and rao-
oour to tho three preceding oanvanses:
In tho Iluucock ratification mooting
ueld m St. Louis two weeks ego, there
jas a transparency bearing this device,
'The Bloody Shirt Washed, Starched
and Ironed." It told the whole Btory
Tbcro ro no manufactured irsues
smeared with gouts and goro in this,
campaign ; no arpcals to Northern loy
ally in bohaltof apublioorder threat
ened by Southern rebels ; no appeal to
Northern resentment in behalf of
massacred and oppressed negroes.
Tbo nomloinatiou of Hanoock has ef
foctnallv silenced these battorios, A
fow Republican papers, aot'.ng more
Onm Vinhit than reason, make a feeble
attempt to flap tho bloody shirt in the
face of their party,witna view
to rousing it from its apathy ;
but the experiment is a
lnilinrnna fniliire. and the more intcli-
gent Republicans organs reoognize that
the days of authority ot tins paieiui
garment are over.
It is well for the country and well
for national politics that tbe tho dis-
agreeablo issuo between tho north and
the South is thus eliminated from the
oamDaien. It has, too, kept the Beo-
tions in a state of estrangement, fo
mented suspicion and gangrene, and
preventod the cordial fraternization de
manded alike by the interests ot both
North and South, and by tho national
peace. The war is hi teen years pasc-
Ita results bavo become established
facts in history and in tho national
economy whioh no party desires to
undo or oould undo, even if it desired
to. It is time, therefore, to cease bor
rowing party issues from a past Btrifo.
It is high time, in the presenee ot a
census whioh bIiowb a population
greater than that of any other civiliz
ed nation on the earth and a prospei
ity and power proportionate to thai
population that we should turn from
tbo past and set our face to the radiant
future. The disappearance ot war and
reconstruction issues will assuredly
weaken the Republican party ; but
tsna nf iliniuanilii n( nntridtn Rcmib-
licans will rejoice at it' nevertheless.
