, AVo see by tm interviovv KvitU the
Governor, pnblishod in the Houston
Post, tlint Gov. Roberts favors the
building of prisons sufficient ,'to con
fine all the convicts inside the walls,
And we trust that ho will urge ' this
upon the legislature. The law con
templates that convicted felons should
be confined, nnd they are sentenced
"to hard labor1 fit we penitentiary
and to take them out to labor in the
fields is a whing, that might from
sheer necessity be 'borne with for a
while, but' the protection of society
demands that as soon as means can
be provided to"' build '. penitentiar
ies for all convicts it should be done
and the law complied with
That the protection of tho 'people
of the state demands it is ho patent
that we scarcely think it nocess iry to
argue it i and we have heretofore dis
cussed the matter as a protection to
the prisoners, from the cruelty of the
irresponsible men who are piacca
over them as guards.
But there is another and a higher
view to be tnkeu in the matter. Our
luw books say that punitihment in
the penitentiary contemplates the re
formation of tho convict; and this
being so, it docs scorn to us that the
convicts ought to be ki-pt in prisons

Texas Republicans Visit Gen. Gar
fleM.
Marshal 8. H. BnssoU, Messrs.
Malloy, Umdenstock, DeGross and
W. H. Terrell, have returned from , a
visit to Gon. Garfield, at Mentor.
The gentlemen are much pleased with
their visit and the very cordial : man
ner in which Gen. Garfield received
them. ' Thoy took dinner with him.
Gen. Garfield asked many ' questions
concerning Texas, and - expressed
gratification at its progress, the in
crease in immigration, and of its pros
pects. He took occasion to say that
he hoped all sectional feeling would
cease, and that Texas, as well as all
other ' sections, would build up, ad
vance and prosper. - The president
elect expressed groat interest in Tex
as, and predicted for it a groat future.
The Cincinnati , Gazotte .tolls Mr.
Garfield to "lot the bosses go" in
making up his cabinet -the "bosses"
referred to being "Conkling, Blaine,
Grant, Cameron, and others," and it
adds: ., j,,..,' j. .' "' :' '. .;".'.
1 "By the nation's election the pres
ident is tne biggest man in tne party.
He con be such in spite of all the
senator dictators. He has the power
to boat any of them that undertake
to make war upon him. By going
outside of them and their nominees
in forming his cabinet he would give
thorn no cause to make war upon him,
and would avoid incurring the hos
tility .which ho would incur from one
by seeming to favor another. There
ore good and capable men outside of
these oligarchs and their partisans.
The Republican party is scandalized
by the assumption of these bosses,
and . would heartily respond to
course of the new president which
should be ludependent of them,
Very good advice, but whether the
President elect will have the nerve to
follow it, romains to be seen,
We understand there is some talk of
forming a new county out of the north
portion ot Blanco, and a part of Llano,
liuruott sod Travis. If Ibis is done,
Blanoo must have attached to it a strip
off Comal and a corner off Kendall.
Thia will make everything all right and
settle tbe couuty-aeit quealion forever,
