At the close of the year it is prob ablv the nroncr thmcr to brieUT re- rf 4--t- - -view the Government's financia condition. Durinor tbo mouth of Doceinbor, tho roceipU from al sources woro $29.325.2S8, and tbo disbursemente were 10,400,082, not gain of nearly ninotoen million out of which amount about throo and a half millions of intorost upon the public debt must bo paid, leaving the total surplus for Dacombor nearly fiftoon millions and a half; during that month tho national debt was re ducod fiftoon and a qnartor millions, and for tbo whole yoar it wasdocroas ed a little more than ono hundred and and sevonteon million dollars, tho larcebt reduction being made in Juno and November. Many of the Congressmen who visited thoir homos during tbo re cess have returned, and others are daily arriving all looking with im- pationco to tbo reassembling of Con gross, when the committees will bo announced and the work of the bos sion will begin in earnest. It is un derstood that Speaker Carlisle baa finished bis most tedious and trouble some undertaking that of making out his oommittoo lists, and with bis great experience, it is confidently be lieved that his work will be accept able, although many members will be disapointed at their assignments. Thoso not familar with the workings of Congressional ambition, cannot conceive of tho jealousies and bicker incsof aspirins; statesmen in such matters. If a membor's name does not appear first on a committee, be would like to bo a second or third ; every uongrossman una a settled aversion to appearing lubt on a com mittee. Tho Domocratio Sonators are very prononncod in favor of tariff reform and they havo appointed a committee of which Mr. Konna, is chairmun, to confer with the party lendors in tbo louso on the isBuo of tax reduction, as such a bill must nocessarily origi nate in that body. Mr. Konna's sol. ection is significant, as bis viewB on the question of tariff legislation are known to be conservative, and it is therefore thought that he is inclined to favor a compromise measure. Both nartios realize that the tariff must be revised, and they are accord ingly making preparations with the viow of accomplishing that objoct and at the sauio time presorving partisan alignments. It remains to be soon whether snch a difficult feat in political gymnastics cun be exocutod successfully. Tbo report of the Faoifio Railroad Commission will be one of the most important mousurea brought to the attention of Congress, and it is hop ed that this giant corporation will be compelled to fulfil its contract with with the Government whose forbear ance it bus exhausted. Ex Govern or's Pattison's minority report is a most Bovcre but just arraignment in which Republican and millionaire United Statos Sonator Stanford and his bonanza associates are handled in a manner truly refreshing and con vincing, ond it is to be hoped that his views will diroct the policy of of Congress. Amoug tho rresidont's Christmas prosents were a frozen watermelon and a live golden eagle. It is sup posed that tho raelou was disposed of at tho Whito House, but Mr. Cleve land having no placo about tbo man sion for tho proud bird of liberty, proseuted him to tho "Zoo" at the National Musoutu, to keep company with tho bear, deer, prairie dog, wolves, and red foxes recently arrived from the West, and which it is be lieved will form the nucleus of a largo collection of American wild animuU and fowls.

Oulveoton Nowi. The immigration movemont in in Texas promises to make memora ble tho yoar 1888 as tlmtof the great est in growth and development in the history of the stato. In a certain sense the idea of a boom car ries with it tho suspicion of decep tive artifico. Booms usually moan tho rapid unloading of property at in flated values by npoculatora upon over-credulous immigrants. There is do necessity that Texas people and property holders should adopt de ceptive raothods. 1'roRpority thro' stimulated immigration can be attain ed without misleading tboso persons who aro to become citizens of Texas. All that is required to attract the best classes of settlers and the most desireable investments of capital is to show only the simple truth. Texas, if it were known throughout the oth er states as it 1b, would draw rapidly and steadily. The state has suffered in recent years from two causes the drouth in certain districts and the shrinkage in livestock values. It has happened that these misfortunes have usually come togotber, tho one in a measure tho causo of the other. While this is evident it is a singular ly short-sighted policy that has di rected legislation in hostility to tho vast livestock interests at the mo-' tuent of their greatest depression. During four years of this depression the Btato admininietration was en gaged in continuous opposition to all efforts at the establishment of the livestock interests upon a basis mu tually advantageous to the settler and the cattle breeder, lixxt now a wise and firm policy has been adopted, which is enforced in such a manner as to give hopo and encouragement to all concerned, It is true that there are nomadic free-graziers and and cross-roads politicians, in no way interested in the establishment of any definite and judicious policy, who aro by overy means in their power discouraging the settlement of tho country. But before the year 1888 has expired, it is confidently an ticipated that the long struggle against a just state policy will have ceased, and thut all legitimate inter ests and pursuits will exhibit a rapid and healthy advance. Tho yoar 1888 will probably Bee the foundation of enterprises in in Texas that will lib erate tho meat producers from the exactions of tbo groat monopolies that have controlled that business. The influx of capital will establish such industries as woll as manufac tories of the staplo products of the fields and mines. There is every rea son for hopefulness in this direction. To assure these investments of capital all that is required is to se cure a population of hardy producers. Localities are relied upon in the more populous and settled districts to ex Libit their attractions in the way of cheap lands, inviting iy thoir fertility diveristy and abundance the better class of farmers, und to exhibit their attractions in the way of schools aud churches, ponce and order and a gen erous hospitality and substantial in ducements for settlers of all profes sions and pursuits. But the princi pal work of those who have under taken the promotion of immigration is to attract a great a groat tide of Bottlers to the districts that are com paratively unsettled. It is believed that in no country on earth is there offered the immigrant as liberal terms as Toxas offers in the sale of the Bchool, university, and asylum lands. By tho assistance of the land com missioner who has procured the clas- ticatiou of these lands, the executive oommitteo can publish to the world a description of every section and half-section. This descrip tion, with the liberal terms offer ed by the state, should draw settlers from every stato and country where tho facts are made known. If the executive committoo and the locali ties work together energetically the i years 1S88 and 18S9 wiil bo the most memorable in Texas history. Maine's Formidable Obstacles. Snn Jose HorulJ. James G. Blaine is evidently to bo the republican candidate for presi' deut, if tho machine politicians can make him so. Butbewulbo oppos- by many of the most powerful re publican newspapers in the country. The Boston Herald does not want him. The Philadelphia Press is against him. The Springfiuld Re publican repudiates him. The New York Tiinos will fisrht hiin first last last and all the time. Harper's Wookly will caricature him with the ratne relentloss bitterness as before. The Chicago Tribune will attack him with all Joe Modill's powerful battery. Tho St. Lonia Globs Democrat wiil oppose him in the Southwest The St Ponl Pioneer Press will swing the Northwest out of lino for him. With those forces against him it seems hardly poMblo that Mr. B! line can get tho nomination, and if bo is nom inated with Fiich forces against him, it is inipossiblo to elect hiin. 1 To tho IVople of the Soth Mvuatorlal DlhtrlcU n At tho meeting of the State Immi gration Convention bold at Dallas on Docombcr 20th, 1887, the undersign ed was elected chairman of the 25th senatorial district, composed of the counties of Caldwoll, Guadalupe, Hays, Blanco, Llano, Comal and Kendall. It waa anggostod at said mooting that each distriot pay into the general fund the sum of $100 to hn iiRd in advertising each particu lar section. At the mooting bold at Dallas on the 29th of December it was BUggosted that $500 more be raised by each distriot, to bo placod in bank subject to tbe call of the chairman, to be nsed Bolely and ex clusively for the district contributing it under the direction of the oontral committee. As it will be impossible for me to visit tbe various counties in person, I respectfully suggest that meotings be bold and contributions raised so that our district may take her place among the others of the state. Funds may be forwarded to me or to Johnston and Lipscomb, bankers, Luling, Texas, together with reports of mootings held.. If we would se cure the benefits to be derived from the movoment just inaugurated, wo must do our share of the work and and pay our part of the expense. Respectfully, J. P. Bridges, Mem.

I listened awhile nnd then said, "that money is not mado in Wichita." They wanted to know where else, then ; a friend of theirs bought lots for $7,000 and sold them for 20,000, bo be made $13,000 in Wichita. I said No; tho other man mado or earned the $13,000 somewhere else, and your friend simply euchered him out of it by giving him a lot of Wichita dirt for it." They looked at me as if I were an escaped lunatic, but finally admitted I was right. Mr. Tilden's outspoken estimate of Mr. Cleveland, when he bad at last made up bis mind. to cast his mantle on him, may be interesting. "He is inexperienced," said the sage, but he is honest, strong, and makes an impression on all who meet him. It is said be is a man of des tiny, per haps he is: I think he can be elocted. If so, ho is wise, patriot ic, fearless and a great worker. He will run the government and execute the laws faithfully." I consider this , a great tribute for a man tnen bo young and comparatively obscure as Mr. Cleveland, to extort from Mr. Tilden. 'Town I.U for Sale.
