Tho oloction bns como ami gone, and tho result in an enormous anti prohibition mnjority. Wo aro not very greatly nnriririoil. In fact, wliilo Uki pronpoct of onr bucccbs waH luofit fair, wo ilid not pormit onrsolf to lioliovo that bo great a revolution could bo wrought in ho short a time. As wonaid in tho fitart, wo regarded tho Into cfinvuHH moro iu tho light of a grand process for educating tho public mind. As such it has been a signal success. Tho question is bet ter understood by tho people of Tex as than it would otherwise have boon ia tho next twenty years. And the goodsootl thus sown will yet boar abundant fruit. Wo soo no sort of ground for discouragement. In facts and in argument it has been a uuc cesmon of victories on tho part of tho advocatos of prohibition. Their an tagonists clearly felt themselves whipped on every field until at last they skulked tho conflict Not only so, but tlioy wero a badly scared 6ot of fellows all through. Thoy evi dently wero- in mortal terror of do feat. This was shown by tLe laut dosperalo resort of calling on the ax-president of tho confederacy at tho last moment to lend tho prestige of his nunio in their behalf. Wo repeat, thero is uo real ground for iliseonragrinout. Tho 100,000 earnest prohibition voters and work ers developed by tho contest will be able to control tho destiny of tho movement to a favorable ismio. ' Truth is mighty, and will oventiml y prevail," We notice that tho Galveston News asserts that tha great body of tho ro publieaus in Texas voted for prohi bition. A linger falsehood was nev er uttered precisely tho reverso is true, wo scarcely got any republican votes savo a small ft notion of the no groos. All tho republican loaders and managers with ono or two ex ceptions wero nuti-prohibilion, and activoly employed on tho stump in its favor, and there is uo reason to doubt but they had their usual rag-lag and bobtail party following. Tho republicans number somo 75,000 in tho Stato, which explains tho groat mass of tho nnti-prohibition mnjority. Nothing could bo moro false than to say Bitch a mnjority is Democratic. Iloger Q. Mills has already issued bis pronunciamento against Demo cratic prohibitionists. Ho exhorts tho antis to go to work at once to eeeuro control of the primaries, says prohibition must bo voted out of tho party and exterminated, that at the next State convention tho strongest possible plank must bo passed against that heresy, etc. In short lie cracks his whip over prohibition democrats in regular old overseer btylo. We will seo whether freeborn Texas Democrats will "come to U" nt his bidding. All tho other amendments ns well its the prohibition were voted down. The intelligent anti voters wero so fearful of the first that they said no to all the rest ns well. The passage of some of them was very important, bnt they couldn't see it. Hcxtsviu.e.

All Hall, Shu M arrest In 1873, after readiug up Txa for a year or ho, we selected Hun Marcos as our future home, nnd came here direct, without having a single personal acquaintance outside of our own family. From that duj to this we have been fully identified with tho town, and in spite of various ups and downs, and some rough, un generous treatment, we have eujoyod the friendship and support of tho best elements of society iu town and vicinity, and maintained n high ap preciation of tho placo, its natural beauty nnd advantages, and tho gen eral superiority of its pooplo over most other Texas towns. Wo havo traveled extensivoly in tho State, and have ulways como back to San Mar cos with renewed feelings of prefer ence and prido. But wo havo never been so proud of bor as wo aro to-day. Her noble fight for tho prohibition of tbo liquor traffic, in behalf of tho best good of society, her majority of over ono hundred votes for that causo against the utmost efforts of (gonerally) tho lowest elements of socioty, backed up by money obtained id libitum from tho whiskey nnd beer magnates of the North, havo given her a moral elevation in tho world which does her the highest honor, and must enuro most signally to her benefit by attract ing only tho best pooplo to inako their homes hero. Tho Fkee 1'kksh hiiB ulways ex pressed tho firm couviction that the moral, law-abiding element of San Marcos and vicinity, whenever they saw causo to unito, could control in all elections. Tho result on Thursday demonstrates tho correctness of out views on that subject Over one hundred majority for tho right is a good security against evil-doers. The saloonists will do well to hoed this fact, and go slow in this precinct. Thero is a rod in picklo for them should they become too"obstrepoloUB" wo moan local option, which is real ly prohibition in a local way. Its failure hero a good many years ago has caused an unjust prejudice against it. But tho law has since been tnndo far moro stringent, and public sentimont also is now much moro favorable. If adopted now it could no doubt bo enforced. Let it bo borne in mind that it was through local optioji that the grand prohibi tion triumphs ut Atlanta and Home, Ga., and other points iu tho South wero reached. Let no ono therefore despise local option, but let us all bo thankful that it remains tho law of the laud in Texas. Anti-prohibitionists and anti democrats would no i , i , v. i a . :l r i. n UOIIUO OO giatl to expunyo lb inmi iuo Constitution, but it will thero remain a terror to tho saloonists, until super seded by Stato prohibition. Tho drought in a largo section of Wisconsin and Illinois fairly rivals tho Texas drouths of last year and a portion of this. Appetite must at last have prevail ed over reason and conscience with many American votory who had talked prohibi lion. Tho President in accepting an invi tion to visit Kansas City, expressed his pleasure that it had no "partisan or political f oat uro." His visit to the west which takes placo early in October, is likolv to move a notable event. His desire to soo the country and visit the pooplo wiLliout auy suggestion of a political purpose, will no doubt be reciprocated by a desire to uo honor to the Chief Ma gistrate of the nation without regard to pari' considerations. Thero is a wholesome exhibition of feeling on both sides, and it gives promise of a time when a president, onco elected, shall bo regarded us the ropreso illa tive of tho whole people, and not the head of a political party. Mr. Clove land comes nearer to holding that relation-in the estimation of tho wholo country than than any president we have had iu many years. X. Y. Times. Traidcnl KphiM of an Anti Jubilee.

JeOurwin UavU, Ilenuvolr, Miaa i Mv Deam Sir ani Fiuknu : I write not tocoiupluin, but to express my surprise and sorrow on account of tho letter you wrote to our good fri.ind. Governor Lubbock, in onno- sition to the proposed amendment to our Stato constitution to prohibit tne mnniifitRtiii-o. Hale, and 'exehanco of intoxicating liquors, except for tped- ical, scientino ana sacramental pur poses. Texas has never boon so pro foundly Btirrea up on ft quobiion be fore within my memory. Tho Stato Democratic convention of lust, voar held tho (mention of tem perance, of opposition to tho liquor tralHo, to bo non-partisan. Our Dem ocratic governor recommended to tho last Legislature tho submission of this question to a voto oi tuo pcoiuo. rtni. liwrixlnturu. which on ioint bal lot had but fivo Republicans in it, did submit tho question to tho poo- nlo for decision the 4 th of August 4 . . ii. proximo, oy a vote oi moro tunu two ti,.v,iu nf niii hmiHo. It was sub mitted as a non-partisan question; to bo voted on when no other question wasboforo tho people. This meas ure is, I understand, sustained by a maioritv of the Democratic members of tho Legislature. It is sustained by many of tho ablost, best and most tt-nufnil Dmnocrats of the State, such as ex-Senator Maxoy, Mr. Culberson, Mr. Lnnham and Judge Hare. Demo cratic mombcr elect to Congress, and Col. Miller, a Democratic member of of last Congress. It is sustainou by two-thirds of tho uowsnapors of Tex as, by not loss than nineteen twenti eths of tho 3000 or 4000 preachers of Texas. By probably ninety-niho in every ono hundrod of tho women of tho Stato. And it will, in my opin ion, bo votod for by moro than 100 000 white Democrats of this Stato. I havo been in three- counties in large assemblies since your letter was published, nnd from whut I have seen and heard I am sure that tens of thousands of your truost and best friends aro grieved and pained by vonr letter. We believed we could carry tho Stato against tho combined influenco and ellorts ot tho manuiac turors Of whisky ami beer, the Li quor Dealers' Association of St, Louis, Chicago, Louisville, Cincinnati, rew York, Philadelphia and olsowhere, and against the uso of tho vast sums nf oinriAV t.llPV hnVB ROllfc to Texas to employ and pay speakers, suborn the newspapers, ana corrupt t"0 duiiod and debauch our people We believ ed wo could carry it against tho sa lncin .Impmirs. nrofcssional politicians .w". . 4 i and a number of good meu, like onr friend Governor Lubbock, -but the talismauio pover of your groat name is now being paraded against the prohibitionists, not only by somo good men, who, like yourself, think prohibition more dangerous than the liquor traffic, and drunkenness, with all tho evils, poverty, wretchedness, shame, sorrow and crime, which fol inovitubly in their train ; bnt your letter is being road and applauded by cverv snloon-keeper and dram drink or in Texas to-day. And it will cost a cause winch many ot us aecrn oi tne greatest importantance many thous ands of votes nnd wo fear may de feat the amendment and give the in dorsement of tho people to the liquor traffic, with its griefs, sorrows and crimes which always go with it. You object to this amendmont necause "tho world is governed too much." Onr laws prohibit tho carrying of pistols, bowie knives and brass knuckles, and punish those carrying them by lino and imprison ment. Our laws prohibit and pro vido for tho punishment of every species of gambling. They pro hibit nnd provide for the pnnish mout of many other things which arc injurious to society and which re strain tho personal liberty of tho citizen. You admit the intemperate uso of liquors is tho "root of many so cial disorders." No one can truthful ly deny the baneful effects of tho li quor traffic. But you think with many others, that to prohibit it will bo an abridgment of personal liberty. This is admitted. Personal liberty was abridged when God forbade onr progenitors to cut of tho fruit of the tree in Eden. The decalogue in the Holy Scriptures abridges personal liberty in uearly every commandment. Tho laws of tlie United States and of our several states, are in u lanrc measure, made up of provisions for the io iibrulgnieni oi personal noeriy. hov do this in order to ffive protec Tl tie inn to Mm ivi-s.ms. tli rcimtations. the lives, the property of the people . to give peace and prosperity to so ciety. They do it becauso govern ment nnd civil society cannot exist without the" abridgment of of person al liberty. They do it for tho good of soei ty nnd the protection of its numbers. 1 .4 the liquor traffic an ivil' lVw have the hardihood to lenv that it is.

Very truly yourj friend, Joiix II. IIcaoas. PaloHtine, Texas. Soiuct liltiur or Social Lire at Chautauqua. IIon.vELL9vn.LE, N. Y. Aug. 4, '87. Editor Fhee Press : There aro many visitors hero whoso liuos fall in pleasant places, whilo others soe only to feel cares and responsibilities. Ono instance, north of tho Ohio river nearly all cooking and tublo work is done by whito women. Thus hund reds of those poor bounties are wor ried to pander to tho whims of nover-to-bo-satisfied people who como here with moro money and demands than brains. Of courso a contact with this clement forms no part of the social lifo nt this place, yet it would hardly escape tho notice of a thor oughly Southern man. American society ulways apes England in low ering tboso who ought to bo raised, nnd raising those who should bo abased. Tho most proaaiuent social factor hore is tho iniddio class by far the largest of any if any ono thinks that tho rich alono como to these summer resorts, he is much mistaken Tho poor and middle classes exceed them by odds. Wo havo always noticed this class was moro npt to gonerulo friction in social circles than any other. They are sometimes called an unhiippy medium. They cau't go to the top and wou't go to the bottom. After this comes a small circle of what would bo called rich people. This class plays rather a backward part for such people ou such occa sions. Trno thoy stand and let tho pro lessors and D. D's. walk by; but as a general thing they sit quietly satisfied over the valuable knowledge they are scattering among tho needy. They look on Chautauqua as a great gift from them for the elevating of tho masses just beneath. There is not as much said of money qualitica tions here as in the West Talent seems to mix with aristocracy here better than money. But we are glad to note, iu all classes, a tendency to elevate, and not to gossip. Reading, hearing, seeing and learning is tho order of each day. The most prom inent in social circles are the school touchers. Pedagoging floats on every passing breeze and lurks in every flower. Every cottago has an inuum erablo host of volunteer critiques They know all that you don't know, and know but little that you would like to know. Many of them go ou tho principle that social lifo needs an equilibrium and they try to form ono by making every ouo equal to them iu thought These como from tho far off coast of Maine to the Strait of Lower California, and each ono brings his or her peculiar methods of feel ing, thinking and speaking. Georgia faults Boston for her provincial broad ness; while Boston, in turn, laughs at the eternal sharpness iu tho Southern words. Each one seems to have a slight disposition to make you think as he thinks, and feel as he feels; nnd if you do not, of course it is because you live iu a land where gross dark ness still covers the peoole. But notwithstanding these strong prov inciid tendencies in some, the social life here cau be made both pleasant and profit lb'.e. The most noticeable among thee teachers, is a Ivautiful and smut class of o'd maids. Thoy aro as sen sitive of words as tlioy can and what von siy to them must 1h in srfeot kt ping with all the pieuliar digtn of a first clavs soh'Xl of re-l-'-;i us etiquette.

Thia ia not altogether the dreMy place ono would think. Not a very great demonstration of woalth in that linot but still much time is spent by these would be lovers in the construc tion of talent on top of the head with a comb and brush. There are aouio few in tho world wiser than aro they, but none moro handsome. Thia immonso throng is composed mainly of young pooplo, you could but notico the conspicuous absence of old peoplo and children. A few old heads dot the surface of the am phitheatre, but they oro gonerally local and not foroign, while hero and there may be seen groups of children playing in the sand. Then comes a largo number of Proffs , and D. Da. Tho tendency of talont seeking for Chautauqua seems to bo Europowurd. So you may henr tho compressed asnirato of the French, the broad guttural sound of tho German, thoconvorted consonant Bound of tho Swede, all mixing iip with tho Englishman who never tiros using his inexhnnstiblo store of syn- 0111ms. If tho i'roi. is brilliant tne crowd is conveyed to tho amphithea tre, if rather dull the lecture is np- pointed for Hall of Philosophy, to save him tho embarassmeut of spenk- ing to empty seats. These Profs, you may approach if you bo con ducted to them by some other talent of equal magnitude, otherwise tho ground on which they stand is holy. Then comes thousands of earths most charming young ladies from all parts of this land. The 6tudy of whom would make a book alone. It is not iu tho human mind to conceive of the wido spread social influence for good going out from this placo. How we can study each section in its peculiar ways and harmonize them in thought and feeling for the great social and moral good of the nation. If we writo from hero again we will say something of the moral and literary advantages of such a move. Wo wish to repent, Suu Marcos will never regret if she takes a lively in terest in her Chautauqua. J. A. Tuomas. S. 51. S. S. A. & S. I. Programme for 1887.
