A subscriber writes to tho Now York World, administering a merited rebuke to tho Gotham spoilsmen. IIo says: 'Senator Hill has proclaimed from ihe housotops that ho is a Demo crat. What thou nro wo nod wo arc many who years ago were Kepubli cans but for years past havo voted the Democratic tioket? To this wo were drawn by the patriotism of G rover Cleveland, and perhaps it may bo said havo not been deterred from it by the partisanship of Gov. Elill. Tho party organs, which can scarcely speak re speotfully of tho former, eulogizo tho latter for his devotion to his party. Thoe of us whose voioes aro not heard hut whoso votes count up, liko tho Independent Senator Edwards, feel that if, as it appears, the Sonator esteems himself the director of his party and heir to its highest honors, then dovotion to tiis party is nowise different from devotion to himself Dovotion to self is not a virtue wo feel obligated to venerate. Dovotion to tbo pcoplo is statesmanship. If it is Democratic Btutesmanehip then wo nro Democrats." Tho writer is a true tariff reformer as tho following shows: What positively is our senator's po flition on tho tariff ? Ho is an inci dental protectionists, In other words, Senator Hill favors a tariff primarily for revenue and moidentally for pro tection, while Mr. MoKinloy would favor a tariff primarily for protcotion and incidentally for revenuo. If that be Democracy, wo aro not Deinoorats. Tho axo should bo laid to tho root ot protection. The tariff should bo for revenue only and should bo raised so as to be aa just to all and as little burdensome to any as posiBblo. This wo bcliovo in, and wo believe Tho World believes with us and will work for ub, as we will in that faith tor it, but if this is to be a Uill-slido to frco ooinago and incidental protection, count U3 out. Juat this kind of Democrats aro suro to dofeat Hill if he is nominated for president. The spoilosmon just can't win on a Democratic ticket, and if office is all thoy aro after thoy had just as well go over to the Republi cans, the genuino spoils party. In the last question asked Mr. Vin cent yesterday Judgo Gerald's narao was insortod whero Judge Clark's should havo been. Tho corroot ques tion and answer is as follows: "Is it certain that Judgo Clark will niako tho raoo for governor?" Mr. Vinoent repliad: "He is a good Domoorat, and no suoh Democrat fails to toe tho matk when oallod for. Tho boys in tend to call for him, and Qoorgo novor failed thorn yot. Vo don't intend to consult him muoh about it." IN SOUTHWEST TEXAS. J Legislator Relates His Ex perience. TEXAS GREASERS AGAINST DIAZ Ilrtit ill Murilrr In tlio timl of riowors I'iikI .'Mull rriiut New York to tlio South, west Soutliorn Kxpri'n Computiy In dieted.; Austin, Jan. 1.1. A letter from a member of tho Texas legislature from his homo in tho fiouthwestcni part of tho stato, tinted Jan. 10, addressed to Adjutant-General Mnbry, has been re ceived bearing upon tho Qnrza revolu tion. After lequesting tho appointment of his son as a 6iwcial in tho ranger ser vice, ho says: "While I do not think we nro in danger from Garza's following, yes their dispersion presages much troublo from thieving nnd brigandages. Tho country is in such a direful condi tion none will stay who can cot away. Wo havo had no ruin yot; everything is dried up, and nobody can subsist unless by transported subsistence. Garza is undoubtedly hors do combat wlicrover ho may bo, from tho effects of tho rupturo and his wounds. IIo is not at tho head of tho movement. Both brains and funds aro furnished from Mexico. Ninty-niiio per cent, of tho Mexicans on Texas soil aro in deep sympathy with any move ment against Diaz, and this is my reason for soliciting my son's appointment as an authorized help." A llrtttiil ?I tinier. Safety H.uidoh, Fla., Jan. 13. G. W. D. Juloes was found dead with hi1 head nearly severed from tho bodv lying in the fireplace yesterday morning. The body had been thero apparently three or four days. Ho lived alone, but as he frequently went to Tampa and Sanford on business his absence created some alarm. Somo sharp in strument had been used and there were numerous bruises on tho body, probably received in a struggle with the murderer. Tlio adjoining room showed marks of a desperato encounter, many blood stains appearing upon tho wall and floor ovei which tho body had been dragged. Suspicion rests upon a former lodger who has suddenly disappeared. Tha town and country is greatly excited. Fighting tha Lottery. Jackson, Miss., Jan. 1!3. Tho grand jury yesterday brought in an indictment against tho Southern Express company for receiving and forwarding money to the Louisiana lottery and returning tickets to purchnters. The indictment was found on tho idea that the act makes tho express company an agent of the company, which is positively prohibited by law. If tbo law holds good it will abolish almost tho only means parties havo of getting tickets from tho lottery company. Judge Chrhtrnan, judge of tlio court, is anti-lottery. A Steamer Loaded With Itanan as. Mobile, Jan. 13. Tlio steamship Ceres, tho first of the now lino of steam ers between Mobile and Central and South American points, camo in with a ' cargo of 9,000 bunches of bananas from Bocas del Toro. Tlio fruit was unloaded with dispatch into twenty-nino freight cars of tho Mobilo and Ohio railroad, making two train loads, which left on a special fast freight schedulo for St. Louis, Chicago nnd Cincinnati. The steamer's trip was mndo in nine days, owing to hpavy head winds. With good weather it cau bo steamed in five days. Hope's llntl Predicament. Memphis, Jan. 13. Albert Hope, poet, playwright and former protege of Mrs. Frank Leslie, will go to tho penitentiary unless tho supremo court intervenes to save him. Ho was convicted of obtain- ing money under falso pretenses by means of a check drawn by him on the uruauwuy isuuoiuu oamc 01 INOW xorK, in which he had no funds. That was a month ngo. Judgo Duboso of tho crimi- nai court overruled n motion tor a now trial made by Hope's counsel and thoy took an appeal. Fast JMull to the Southwest. Washington, Jan. 13. Beginning on tlio 20th inst., a now fast mail lino will be established over tho Pennsylvania railroad from Now York via Pittsburg, Columbus and Indianapolis to St. Louis, which will carry tho mail, leaving New York at 0 o'clock in tho morning, and will arrivo in St. Louis at 7 o'clock tho following evening. Tho west and southwest will receivo a great advantngo from this nrrangement of General Superintendent White of tlio railway mail service. "I 1. rs r Content of 'the Souaon. Dallas, Jan. 13. Today is tho coldest day this season. This morning the ther mometer registered fourteen degrees abovo zero, and overcoats ceased to bo a luxury. Peoplo kept in doors, at least those who had no pressing business on hand. Tlio coal dealers were kept busy and a fuel famino is among tho possibili ties if the cold snap continues. Mis Field Dead. New Youk. Jan. 13. Grace Meld fe'StfS.'SK -Ssr. W. Field, died this mornimr after u lingering mm Corfrt Wonrlnc Apparel. Nnw Yokk, Jnn. 1.1. Jmlgo Wheolor of tho United States circuit court of this distnet has just handed down a decision thnt will cause tho feminine heart to flutter with varying emotions tho country over. IIo says, in effect, that tho charge that corsots aro used to beautify tlio fcmalo form is libellous, and givos it as his opinion that thoy coustituto a legiti mate species of wearing apparel For this judicial compliment Judge Wheeler taxes every lady in tho land from 35 to ij&.fiO on each and every corset pur chased, according to its retail nrico. Tho decision was mndo after a long argu ment before him, in which tho merits of tlio case were solemnly presented 1y I Assistant United States District Attorney 1 Piatt, representing tho government, and D. I. Mnckio, representing a New York importer, who contended that an iuijwr tation of corsets should pay a duty of 4 per cent, us manufactured cotton, instead of 50 per cent, nd valorem as an article of clothing. Mr. Plntt had tho advantngo in tho argument. IIo is a mnrried man. I Mr. Mackio is not. Mr. Mnckio admitted 1 that, being a bachelor, his argument was necessarily based on hearsay evidence. IIo said that corsets were not wearing apparel, but were used to hold thofemalo . form in place, nnd that they had no warmth in them. Mr. Piatt said Mr. Mackio was mistaken nnd that thero was a great deal of warmth in corsets npd they were not worn for tho purposo contended by Mr. Mackio. Even itftra fashionablo young men wore them. Judge "Wheeler decided thnt Mr. Piatt had tho best of the argument nnd corsets will hereafter pay tho McKiuloy duty of CO per cent, nd valorem. Mysterious Ucnth. Si'lUNOViEW, Neb., Jan. 13. A. M. Culver, one of tho most prominent citizens in this county, was found near his residenco with his skull crushed. Early in tho day ho had gono out to ex amine somo timber and not returning in tho evening neighbors began n search for him. His body was found at tho foot of a tree on which ho had evidently been chopping. Just back of tho right ear was a wound mndo by somo blunt in btrument, from which tho brains oozed. There is no solution of tho affair. Tho theory of murder is not regarded as plausible, as tho dead man stood high in tne esteem ot the iieoplo of this locality, nnd was not known to havo an enemy in existence. The affair is rendered more mysterious in view of tho fact of the surroundings, and tho wound which ' produced death could scarcely havo ac cidentally occurred, The deceased was one of the pioneer citizens of Nebraska and very influential. Slioshor.es nnd Arapahoe, I.anl. "Washington, Jan. 13.---Tho president sent to congress with his recommenda tion, urging favorablo consideration, tho ngreement that J. II. Brigham of Ohio and C. n. Merrill of Washington, a ma jority of the Shoshone and Ara'parhoo Indian commission, roado with the Shoshone and Araparhoo Indians of Wyoming for tho cession of more than half their reservation on Wind river in Wyoming. The lands ceded compriso 1,100,000 acres of land in the northern part of the reservation, nnd tho prico paid is $000,000, or about 55 cents an acre. Stntu Capital Notes. Austin, Jan. 13. The question whether tho district judgo will entertain tho ap plication for a writ of injunction against Land Commissioner McGaughey in tho proceeding involving tho boundary lino between Kaufman and Hunt counties, was argued at great length. Colonel Walton and Mr. Ward contended for tho writ nnd Lawyer J. S. Sherrill of Hunt nnd Mr. Andrews, office assistant attor ney general, opposed tho view. Colonol McGaughey was present nnd enjoyed tho contention of tho counsel for unre stricted powers of his office. Tho jud nfter argument decided not to grnnt tho i injunction. He held that tho question I hud been decided by tho supremo court. This restores the old line. It is not likely tho lino will again be changed until thero is a now land commissioner. Tho board of managers, upon tho rec ommendation of Governor Hogg, elected Dr. Frank S. White of Decatur, superin tendent of the insane asylum. IIo is a native of tho state. IIo was for about hoven years assistant superintendent of tho lnnntic asylum at Terrell nnd is a member of tho Superintendents of Amer ican Institutes for tho Insane. He is about 45 years of ago and is well recom mended by tho medical profession. No Ico In Itlalno. Banooii, Mo., Jan. 13. To-night there is no ice-producing tide water river in Maine not open to steam vessels to tho head of navigation. Tho Kennebec river, irom wmen over a million tons or ico must bo taken for Washington, Balti more, Philadelphia and Now York, is in bad shapo on account of dirt, driftwood and anchor ico which does not work out with tho tide. Tho Penobscot river is in fine shape, but tho water is as sereno and icoless as in summer. This condi tion was nover before known in Maino, even in tho years of tho ico famines, tho winters of 1878 and 1888-0. Never be fore havo the rivers been open as lato aa Jan. 2, as snow comes abundantly here abouts after tho annual January thaw, i7 ' SHE protecting tlio ico. Thero is no hopo of jiiuuuu oi reuruary. icemen nero aro anxiously watching the Hudson river.
