'I mil for Iroo commerce ivltlt all nntlous.'' Tliomim Jefferson. "The enow, tho ico, the beautifuj fileet," oxelainied a young man, who stood on his feet, at tho corner for a moment, and then on'Jiis head. And that's the reason why this poom went dead. How about that Gazotto iuterviow with Senator Simkins of Corsicana? Simkins has said ho did not say he would vote against Mills. How tho "great and good," by whioh is moaut tho Gazetto has fallen.

Hill for president. Fort Worth Gibbsotte. Tho Port Worth Brunette says: "Baby Ruth Cleveland has ben christ ened. Tho occasion would havo been doubly interesting if Mr. Cleveland had been moved by the natural son timont of tho hour, to seek baptism into the household of tho Dcmooratio faith." Tho Gazette means that Mr. Cleveland should seek baptism into the wigwam of tho Tammany infidelty. The Forth Worth Mail under its now management is making a gallant fight against the Tammany organ that cmorges about ten hours after tho Mail begins to twinkle. It says: "Tho Mail confidently predicts that six months from today, with tho mercu ry registering 90- in the shade, that B. Gibbs, J. Hogg, S. Robertson and tho twin intolleotual giants now active ly engaged in turning the orank of the nowspaper organ for this triplioato of worthies that furnished it with musio and lubrioating oil, will bo standing lonesomely around tho Hill boom, vortdcrini? what tho blamod thing ib doing with so many icicles on it in tho summer timo." Chairman Reagan says in his letter to a BoBton gentleman: "Before this commission took aotion the freight rates on ootton woro notor iously exoessivo, and tho commission has rcduocd tho average cost of trans portation of cotton from and to points in this stato about 10 per cont. and still, as shown above, tho rates aro very high, higher, indeed, than they aro anywhoro olso, and we hope to find that after a while wo oan mako some furthor reduction on those rates." Chairman Reagan olosos that samo lettor with the following statemont: "A good many of tho Texas roads, as is the case elsowhoro, were bank rupt before this commission oxisted. Wo hope to help thom out of bank ruptoy, and we certainly hopo wo shall not help to put any others into bank ruptcy. Nono of thom havo gone into bankruptcy ainoo tho commission was organized." Will Chairman Roagan rely upon n reduction of rates to help tho roads out of bankruptcy? THE DALLAS BRUNETTE ANO TAMMANY BRAVE. The pooplo of Texas doubtless ro member the visit of Barnoy Gibbs to Now York, though sovoral months havo elapsed sinoo that eventful trip. Barnoy was invited to attend a meet ing of Tammany bravos, and make aspeoah. Ho was bancjuetted and toasted and patted on tho shoulder, and, although tho di9patohos at the time, did not say so, it was gonerally understood that the Dallas Brunette joined tho groat seorct political organization and oame back home impregnated with political wisdom and partisan sagaoity. As Tammany controls the official patron age of New York stato and New York oity, amounting to hundreds of mill ions of dollars, it is not at all Btrange that its loadors should bo able and willing to impart to tho Texas Brunotto, nil tho knowlodgo of partisan warfare that was thought nouossary to enroll Texas as a member of tho Hill ool umn in 1892. Hill is the special pot of Tammany Hall and it was through his influonce, or at least, by his acquicsoonoe that Tammany whioh boasts of tho powea to cast tho vote oi New York, lot that voto go against Cleveland in 1888 Hill the politioal ' rival of Grover Clevoland went about over his state shrieking "I am not a frco trader" and "I am a Demoorat," implying that Cleveland was a free trader and was not a Democrat, and all this, while claiming to bo fighting for tho triumph of the Democratic! party. Well Barnoy camo home and he is now engaged as the special Texas cham pion through the oolumns of tho Fort Worth Gazette of tho man Hill, who nioro than any other manf is responsi ble for tho defeat of demooraoy in 1888 He is making a war on Rogor Q Mills beoauso Mills will not desert princi ples for spoils and do tho bidding of Tammany Hall. Will tho Democrats of Texas follow tho lead of suoh men and papers and tramplo upon the men who fight their battles without a com promise? Tub News does not believe they will and old McLonnan to mor row will show that they will not. Chairman Reagan is a groat lotter writer. Ho is engaged ohiefly thote days writing lottors to eastern capital ists and others denying the charge that tho commission is inimical to tho investors in railroad property in Toxas and assuring ono and all that the rail road commission of whioh he is ohair man, "has no prejudice against rail roads; that it will not knowingly do any act to thoir injury;" and that "it will bo our endeavor to so arrango freight .rates as to presorve to the roads snch rcvonuo as oan bo reasonably expected." Chairman Reagan is wasting his timo when ho writes suoh lotters as these Just so long as the commission of whioh Lo is chairman has tho power to "do any aot to their injury." Tho very faot that the commission has this power, and not tho personal pre judice of tho members thereof is what has doprivod Texas of railroad invest ments, Suoh investments are pormi nent, and ovon if Chairman Reagan sucooeded in convincing everybody that his commission would "do po aot to their injury," yet tho law remains unchanged and commissioners that cotno aftor them havo tho power and may havo tho in clination to do some aot to their in jury. Toxas need not expeot any kind of investments whioh aftor they are made become subject to the capnocs of a trio of politicians and so long as tho railroad proporty of Toxas is bo subjected, she will hare to be content with what alio has. For one hundred dollars on oasy payments, you can buy n good lot on whioh to build a house It is a chance whioh may not last two months, and whioh will novor oocur acrain in Waco. las long as you live, HIS HEAD BURNED OFF.

Mrs. Kines lived about five miles from Warrcnton. On tho morning of Nov. fl her house was seen to bo on lire, anil when neighbors arrived at tho scene they found the body of the oldest child with several horrible wounds on tho face. Tho other bodies were not recovered until aftor tho fire. They all bore evi dence of having been brutally murdered. Heflin, who was a stranger in tho neigh borhood, was arrested on suspicion. He mndo several confessions, at one time Implicating Dye, and again declaring that ho alone committed tho crime. The public aro satisfied that both men are eqnnlly guilty. Other members of the Dye family aro suspected. The prison ers' counsel, Congressman Meredith, baa nppealed the cafco. Frightfully llurnrd. Palestine, Tex., Jan. 15. Late Thursday night tho room occupied by L. A. Cohen at tho family residence on Lacy street was discovered to lo on fire. Mrs. Cohen rushed to tho room and found Mr. Cohen with his body envel oped in Unities and barely rescued him. His legs, face and arms aro so badly burned that tho physicians think ho can not recover. Mr. Cohen lias been par alzed in speech and body for three years, and was consequently unable to escapo from the room or make an out cry. He was, before his misfortune, a most successful traveling man, repre senting leading New York and Galves ton houses. Born and reared in tho Jowish fnith, ho was two months ngo converted by tho evangelist, Granville Jones, and became a member of tho Christian church of this city. It is sup posed that tho iiro caught by tho ex plosion of a lamp. Later Mr. Cohen died Thursday evening. llorrllilo Sight. CiiAUENTio.v, Tex., Jan. 15. A fire broke out in a shanty near the depot Wednesday morning about 1 o'clock and was burned to the ground. It was occu pied by J. C. Stout, an eccentric old man. He was in the building at the time and when assistance arrived tho building was too far gone to save the old man's life or any of his clothing. His chnrred remains were taken from the building a shapeless mass, Btt'i legs wero burned off to tho kneo and tho crown of his head was burned oil, expos ing his charred brains. It was indeed a horriblo sight. Ho has a son living near hero, but tho old man would live with no one. It is supposed that the building caught fire from a defective flue and tho roof was in flames before tho old man awoko and he was too feeblo to escapo. Five cents in money and a silver finger ring, with his initials engraved upon it. wero tho only things found from tho burning. Trailing tho Murderers. Solomonville, Ariz., Jan. 15.

"World's l'uir right. CincAao, Jiin. 15. Tho executivo com mittee of tho World's fnir has appointed a committee on rules and regulations of administration of which President Ba ker is tho chairman. It is known Baker thinks tho management of tho fair, in cluding tho installation of exhibits, bo longs proiwrly to tho local directory in stead of tho national commission, nnd if his ideas provail it will precipitate a con flict between tho local director' and Di rector General Davis, who ns represen tative of the national commission, claims tho right to sniwrviso tho installation of exhibits.
