CARELESSNESS AND TAXATION, Tht farmers of Texas loso enough every jeer from tho destruction of property on account of exposure to the elements than it would tako to provide adequato shelter for all their farm muohincry for years to oorno The News has muoh to say of politics those diys but fools cesstiajncd no and then to pay something abont tho practical, every day things of this life. We aro just beginning a new year and another crop and our farmer irieeds are corning to the city every day layiog in their supplies for tho year and providing tools wit! which to niako tho now crop. It would astonish any living man to bo shown tho figures which would reprcbent tho valuo of wagons, plows, hoes, harness, and so forth, that are allowed to ruin every yoar, in this country for want of oaro and protection from tho weather. The average farinor will oorno to town in January, buy a now wagon, upon the materials of whioh a tax is levied by lliti MiKinloy bill, of from 10 to 60 per cent; also a plow, taxed 50 per cent; set of plow gears, taxod from 10 to 45 por cent; and ho is ready to go to plowing. Ho loads every thing else in tho wagon and goas home, throws tho plow down in the yard, hangs tho gear on thofonoo and feeds his horses in his wagon. None of these valuablo artioles are shelter ed from tho sun and rain whon not in uso and as a conscquonoo most of them last only ono year or maybe two and tho next January the farmer duplicates his bill. He pays for the benetit of the Amerioan manufaoturor a tax of about 15, on tho wagon $3, or M on tho plow and $1, on his gear making Bay $20, taxos on his farming utensils. If ho buys a good suit of woolen clothes ho pays 100 per oont. tax or say $1U. If ho buys his wifo a nice dress ho pays not less than 60 per cent, tax or about $6, Hero are purchases amounting to only about $70 and $36 of that is taxes. About J 6 of this goes into tho United States treasury and tho $30 goes into tho pockets of tho Amerioan manufac tures. It is not at all strango to The News that tho farmors cf this country aro Buffeting from financial ntringenoy, and it is loss strango that they mix a little politios with their farmiog just like wo do in our edi torials. Tho Dcniooratio Exeoutive commit tees of both tho states of Indiana and Iowa havo served notice on tho party at largo that Gray and Boies aro in the race for the nomination for pres ident. Thu Tammany Tiger ooged in New York is not supposed to knov anything about any candidate savo Hill. The theory that tho snow and so vero froezo will hauo a vory salutary effect upon people sufforing with la grippo is very plausible. That la grippe is opidomio and caused by r somo speciGo germ is believed by many nnd if this is truo the late freeze will destroy tho germ. ARANSAS PASS STRIKE.

Tho receivors received a telegram Fri day announcing that n bridge n mile and a half from Yoakum had been fired but tho firo was extinguished before more than trifling damngo was done.

All passen ger trains wero about on timo and twe fi eight trains wero sent out from here Friday. Now men continue to arrive and barring tho surveillance of the evei constant guards tho railroad service is blowly but steadily recovering its nor mal condition. Tho strikers who were bordering on despondency Friday wero elated Friday by encouraging reports sent them from San Antonio. One mem ber of tho committee sent to other points returned Friday. Ho said ho had visited Fort Worth, Temple, Cloburao. Taylor and Palestino nnd finds them ali solid for tho strikers, nnd that they art going to boycott tho San Antonio and Aransas Pass. Each of these places made up from $100 upward for the strik ers Ho says that whilo tho chiefs ol tho Brotherhood of Locomotive En gineers, Brotherhood of Railway Con ductors, Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen nnd Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen hove not yet officially nn. nounced the strike as legal, yet thoy art in sympathy with and will uphold the strike. A letter from ono of tho committee says that ovorything is bright for tht strikers and that they expect to have it declared legal before tho week is out, that Chief Telegrapher Ramsey has de clared tho striko legal and ho is trying to settlo tho matter with D. B. Robin son, who, it is stated, is virtually gen oral manager of tho San Antonio and Aransas Pass, nnd is at present in Now York. A tolegram to tho samo effect was sent to tho committee at San An tonio by Acting Grand Chief A. D. Thurston from Vinton, In. Ramsoy is reported to bo on his way to San An tonio, which point ho will reach Satur day night, when the strikers think il will bo settled. It is also roported thai Chief Arthur will reach San Antonio about tho same timo.

Tlio Texans in Washington aro malting nn effort to havo tho statu6 of General Sam Houston, at ono timo president of tho Texas republic, later senator of tho United States from Texas, nnd later still governor of Texas, placed in the statuary hall in the Capitol. Volume 15 of tho Statutes at Largo pro vides that "Tho president is hereby authorized to invito each nnd every ono of tho states to provido and furnish stat ues in marble and bronze, not exceeding two in number, for each of its deceased porsons who have been citizens thereof and illustrious for their historic renown or for distinguished civil or military hoi-vices, such as each state shall do termino to bo worthy of this nationnl commemoration; and when furnished tho samo shall bo placed in tho old hall of tho houso of representatives in tho Capitol of tho United States, which is hereby set apart, so much thereof as may bo necessary, as n national statuary hall for the purposes horein indicated." Under this provision of law ninny of the states have provided statues of their most eminent citizens. Texas, however, is not yet represented, neither is Missouri, in tho statuary hall. State Senator J. C. McGinnis has time and timo again tried to induce tho Missouri legislature to make provisions for placing tho stat ues of General Frank P. Blair nnd ThomnsH. Benton. Tho Texans here tofore have- not seriously considered the propriety of having their state repre sented, but now they nro seriously talk ing of urging tho legislature of tho state to mako provision for placing tho statue of Houston nnd Rusk, or Austin, or some other eminent citizen of tho common wealth. If the legislature should fail to make provision for providing those stat ues, an effort will eventually bo mndo to make up a public subscription to have tho btntuo of Houston at least provided for tho national Capitol. It has long been a regret to Texans hero that theii state is not represented in the statuary hall, and from present appearances a serious effort will now bo made to have this remedied. A .Sc-nsiitlon in Court. Ottumwa, Io., Jan. 10. Judgo Dowoy of Washington county, who has been holding court for Judge Burton, -who is stricken with paralysis, created another sensation in court Wednesday. He noticed one of tho trial jurymen, W. S. Clark, apparently dozing in tho box. Summoning him before him ho asked n fow questions which revealed to the judge's mind that tho juror was in a state of intoxication. "Sheriff, tako that man to jail and lock him up until 0 o'clock tomorrow morning, then bring him to me," thundered tho judge. Ho then discharged tho jury and ordered tho case carried over to another term. It was tho first timo a juryman was over known to bo drunk in this sec tion, and tho judge's keen perception has terrified jurymen and attorneys alike. Tho judgo has created a string of sensa tions during his stay. Ho holds night session to push tho business, and n few ovonings ngo took a case from tho jury that involved $10,000 damages in a rail road action which had been tried before Judgo Babb of this district, but in which tho jury could not ngreo. It is expected Clark will got tho full oxtcnt of tho law for contempt of court. Drugged nnd Hoboed, Omaha, Jan. 10. .T. S. Sipplo, a wealthy Galesburg (HI.) citizen, was be fore tho county physician charged with insanity. Ho is a prominent stockraisei of Galesburg, and recently went to Cali fornia on business.
