JULIAN. SA.X MA.ROOB, TEXAS THURSDAY, MAY 10, 18S8. Mlsinanngcmcnt of tho Liinatlo Asylum at Austlu Proposed Reform. In our last we reforrod to tbo article of Dr. Denton in tbo April number of Daniel's Medical Journal on tne Management and Treatment of tbe Iusane in Texas." It is devoted in port to a review of tbo general man agement of the Asylum, which has been assigned oh a reward for portinon services. We append tbe concluding Dortion of tho article, also tbe action of tbe Austin District Medical Asso ciation at tbe last meeting on tbo notorious abuse therein set forth: It will ba soon from tbo foregoing brief history that during tbe thirty years, since tbe erection of tbe Asyl um, there have been no less than fif teen sepavato and distinct adminis trations of it a uffairs. Its history consists of little else but a succession of changes by tbe appointment of new superintendents witb each change in the executive office) of the stat. I doubt if there is another institu tion of this character in this, or any other country, that con present such a remarkable serios of changes of ad ininintnitinu in the institution ftbovo recited, not only a change of superin tendent, but almost tuo enure wont ing force of the Asplum. As soon as a new governor is installed the asyl urn is placed in tho bauds of stran gers without experience, ond untried in tbe delicate duties of treating and curing for the insane. It suems strnngo that an official of such exalted dignity and power, fthnnld ba ao unmindful of tho wel fare of six hundred human boings, or, on the other hand, so ignorant of tbe ritMrt fT Ul V llllllltl'MIl Mil II I 111 1JII1IJUCI. Ba I wants, necessities and interests of a WUIllD, mu.i -''-- ' - great institution of this character, ns to wilfully place It in tbo bunds of strangers, who, wutitever may do their disposition or capacities, are un fit for the cburge, for want of exper ience in tbe care of tbo insane. Donlitless Homo of theso change were judiciously and properly made; but a majority of tbe snperintendants re ceived their commibsion as a reward for political services, without regard in merit, or fitness for tho trust. As above stated, tbe eighteenth legisla ture attempted to romove tno msu tution from tbo influenco of party politics and place it in tbo hands of a Board of Managers, whose intimate relations with tho asylum and ample opportunity to observe its internal mnnnrromnnt. lHiidoied its members especially well qualified to supervise itB affairs and to appoint its resident officers. But it has proven practical ly inadequate to protect tbe institu tion, which for more tuan a quarter of a century, has been periodically bartered and transferred with as lit tlo scruple as a trader would transfer a herd of beef cattle. In the interest of more than six hundred of tho most bolnles and deep ly afflicted of tbe human race; in tbo namo and m the interest ol tuo peo ple of Texas, whose friends are lodg d there. I nnrjeal to this Society and to tbe medical profession of Texas, to use its great inHuonce witn tne law making Dower of tbo state, to estab lish for our asylums a permanent gov ernment, wnicu may only Dccuangeu for good and suflieient reason. Our unfortunates wbo are confined there are unable to utter their com plaints. They are beyond tbe pale of law. Their voiceB cannot be heard. Tt is onr esnecial dutv: thouerh unso licited, to use all honorable efforts to procure the passage of an act remov ing this great charity from the influ ence and rower of the politician and place it in tbe bands of a board of managers who shall be bold responsi ble for tbe welfare of tbe institution, ud who ma? only be removed for good and sufficient causa. Until this is done the wretchod m mntea of a "rent institution, founded and endowed by our fathers for their core and protection, wm eonunno to be in tne tnture, as in me, past uaricr cd and transferred like sheen in tbe market, and will continue to beat the mercy of inexperienced and unquali fied pernons, incapable of giving them ucb treatment M their condition re quires and demands.

ITo will devote his timo to tho- I I' progress and development of Texas in bis now field. WASHINGTON LETTEK. fFrom Onr Rogulnr Correspondent.) Washington, April 27, 1888. Governor Hill, of New York, says ho is not a candidate for the Presi dency, and that ho will most willingly head tho New York delegation at St. Louis for the renomintttion of Mr. Cleveland. Thero is nothing now in this, bat perhaps it may satisfy that small olas3 of democrats who , have been trying to mako it appear that Governor Hill was bitterly oppoaod to Mr. Clevfland. For a timo it lookod as though the republicans intonded to mako troublo over tho discussion of tho Mills tariff bill, but their discretion and good sense prevailed, and an agreement was mado to devoto twenty days to general discussion, exclusive of night sessions. This will givo all tho timo for full and free discussion of the measure that any ono could ask It waalso ngreod to divido tho timo equally botween the democratic and republican spoakcrs. Tho dem ocratic leaders bopo to get a final voto on tbo bill by tho Cth of Jane, the date of mooting of tho St. Louis convention, but tbo state of tbo regu lar appropriation bills is sticb, to say nothing some other mcasuros iu which many members are interested, that it is cxtremcmely doubtful. Bosidos, if the republicans should lool dispos ed to put obstacles in tho way, it will bo impossible to have tbo question settled by that date. The Texas delegation in Congress called at the White House on Tues day and presented an invitation to tbe President and Mrs. Cleveland to attend tbo dedication of tho new Stale Capitol at Austin. .The ceremonies are to extend from M ly 11 to 19. As yet tho invitation has neither been ac cepted nor decliuod. The President wants to go but dues not know that he can take the time. Secretary FsircbilJ is oppose! to the bill which provides for issuing pa per fractional currency, which has bevn passed by the Hmuc and is now KcqiiHltesofaWlfe. Different mon roquiro difforcnt qnalifioittions in a wifo. , One man may want a wife who will keep his house in order, his but tons sowed on, his table well spread, and who will eare for little bosido. Another chooses a wife for hor beauty and the ploasnro her charms confer, without regard, to hor charao 'tor or capacity. Others aro content lo marry for wealth, to marry for family position, aud sotno marry because thoy think it is the right thing to do, nnd take tho first ulogible partner they find without a'sking any troublesome questions. But if a man wants a roal holpor, a mato nnd a companion, how shall ho chooso wisely T Tho glamour, the novelty, tno roso, that wear away within the first your, nnd thon follows "tho sober certainty of waking blisB," or tho beginning of lifelong cloud nnd dipeontont. Ono of the first requisites in a good wifo is health. If nlliod to roasonablo symraotry in form nnd foatnros, bo much the better. "A sound mind in a sound body," moans a good torapor, good common son bo, choorfulnoss and patience. ComradoBhip what the French call csmaruderio" is essential in a happy marriago. Tho parties must be "trno yoke fellows, of similar height and weight, and ablo to keep stop together. They must bo cnpablo of being friends as well as lovers. . Each must have a capacity for un selfish devotion. Tbo oontro of the wifo is not in bersolf, but in her husband; the cen tre of the husband is not in himself, but in his wifo. Each lives for the othor. Marriage is not a monopoly of one party by anothor because of its tech nical liability, but because of the to tality of tho union. Each finds in the other his bettor self, her hotter self; othorwise there will inevitably follow starvation or wandering. There are two questions of equal importance to bo afkod by tho young man in search of a wife: Can I make her happy t Can sbe make me happy f Tiniest! both these auostions ro- ceivo a full affirmation, harmony and happiness in tbo married state can not in tho highest degree be attain ed. Sound Suggestions. Dr. Wallace, Superintendent of the Terrell Insane Asylum, thinks that the lunacy laws of Toxas nre radical ly dofective and that bo long as thoy remain unohantred, bo long will tho usylums be full and a demand bo mado for additional facilities for tne care of thoso nufortunatos. Ho says that tho patients who aro sent to the asylums under tho present laws are incurables, sent thero to bo support ed by tho state so long ns tho live nnd to be bunod by it when tuoy dio. lie maintains thatundor tho present sjs tora thoro is no possiblo show for an effort to cheek tho vast growth of tho insane list, but argues that undor a liberalized sot of lunacy laws groat good could Do accomplished in this direction. One radicnl chango ho would make in tho law would bo to compel every insane person to bo placed with all possiblo dispatch un der hospital treatmont upon tuo earliest manifestation of tho disease In other words, Dr. Wallace would have our asylums to bo hospitals for for tho euro of the insano instead of boing merely a home for tho incura bles, Ho argues that if the law should require those unfortunates to bo placod under hospital treatment within ton days after the development of symptoms of mental derangement 90 per cent of all cases would be cur ed or dio within tho first year. Dr. Wallace is an eminent authority on tho subject of treatment of tho insano and his suggestions npon tins point carry great weight that entitlo them to grave consideration. There is a law on the statutes of Texas that is sadly in need of repairs, on tbe principle of mending with a new ODe," That law is the one that exempts a millionaire wbo may be ovor 4 j years old from contributing a fair quota towards keeping np pub lic highways, and compels the poor laborer who hasn't seen so many sum mers, but who needs the proceed of bis every diy's labor to supply his family with the neenmncs o: mo, to keep in repair the public roods to be asod chiefly pcrhnps, by Lis wealthy neighbors who, by reason of years, are exempt from road duty.

Tho old Audu bon place at 155th street near Twelfth avonuo, for many years the borne of the naturalist and the house in whioh he died, is to bo sold at auotion one week from to-day. ' The spot is one of the lovolioet on New York Island, and it is one of the few localities still . reaming in tho city wbioh the noise, dust and confusion of business have nut yet invaded. It is rather sad to see the old place sold and to think that the purchaser will perhaps tear down tbe homestead, about wbioh cluster so many associations, and cat the land np into building lots. For ost and Stream. A GIGANTIC MINING ENTERPRISE. A River Turned Out of Bed. Without doubt one of tbe creatoat miainar achievements of modern sngineering is the contraction of the Wu Bend Tunnel on. tbe Foitther river. Huuutod ta lititteCo.. Cdlifor- , nia. Foatber river is formed by Ute North, Middle and Soilth Forks, which fine in the . Sioira Nevada MoantruuH ia Finnias Co., run Bouthweutwftrd, and unite in Butte Go,, to form tbo main Feather, .... . . . .. . . , 1 tmt Alio river, iiiuiuuiu tua iwaa, a miles long, nud euters Sacramento riror at Vernon, in Hutter county, about 20 mile above the elty of Buoraineuto. It i well known, nniong gold miners, that -the richest nnd most produative gold mines of California have been tbe bods of rivers, and tbe Feutber stands pre-eminent ns to richness wherever it has been possible to work it In fact, tbe old miners have known it tor years under tbo name of "Tbe Golden Feather." Thero Is little stream running through Dark Canon wbioh empties into the wost branch of tbe Feather aud from ' there into the main Feather, Dark Canon is several foot lower than tbo bed of tho main Feath er at tho point wbore Bi? Band begin. A tunnel was commenced, in Dark Canon, and a bore 12x10 toot drilled through a spur of ' liigBoud mountain, adlKtanoeof 12,007 feet or nearly two and ouo-third miles in length out to the niiiuutaiu side of Feather Kiver, at the tipper end of the Bond. Just below wbore tho upper end of the tunnel tups the river a dam was conutrneted which is- to force tho water through tho tunnel into Dark Canon, ont ot whioh it will flow into tho west brunch, nnd thon iuto tbe main Feather again. Tbie will leovo about four teen miles of the river bod exposed to sight during tbe season of low water, which Is from eoven to nine months in the year. This stiipondon. undertaking required the services of one bnudrod men, working night and day, for about five years end bo Jnnt recently boon completed. At tbe head of tbe tunnel six gates of iron and steel, 4 by 8 feot, will let the wator in or keep It out In times of bib water tho gates will be cloned ind the river run along its old bed, to be turned ont nf its course and through tho tunnol at low water. Tho President of tho Big Bond Tunnel and Mining Company nnd the Inrgost stock holder thorein is Dr. tt. V. Pierco. wbo is, perhaps, of nil others, roost entitled to cred it for the snueensful termination of this great undertaking. Boiug fail satisfied with the foftxibility of the plan from its in oovtion, he bns with an unstinting band supplied the fnnds for the posocution of thix enormouhly expnuaive work, and hie eoufldince and libenilitv will soon meet its reward.
