Tho meeting was called to order by tho president who delivered an address of about twenty minutes which rang with pathos, eloquence and pleasantry and impressed all present with the feeling that they bad great and res ponsible work before them, and that their leader in the person of Col II B Andrews, was equal to tho honirablo and responsible position to which they have elected him. At tho con elusion of tho address ol Col. Andrews Seoretary Dudley Brjun read his re port, whioh was upon motion accepted, placed on filo and made a part of tho proceedings of the mcoting. The motion tiat tho pipers be ro quested to publish the report, was made by Mrs Georgo Clark, and car ried. Tho secretary then read ilu fol lowing telegram: Chicago, 111., Jan. 19. D. D. Bryan, Seoretary, Waoo, Texas: Wroto you yesterday; modified de sign Toxas building just finished; Su pervising Architect (Jurransays it will bo tho handsomest state building on grounds. I am suro your meeting will adopt such measures as will ap peal most strongly to tho pride and patriotism of tin people of Texa and enable you to secure sufficient funds in the next few months with which to erect tho Texas building and have tho state creditably represented at the World s Fair. If our lexas women, newspapers and railroads will oontinuo to cooperato with your direotory, and I know they will, you aro bound to succeed. My beBt wii-Iihb aro with you all. Jno A. Dickinson. A great number of speeches were mado by a number of both ladies and gentlemon, npon tho best means of raising tho necessary lunds, some ol whioh wero encouraging as to the futuro prospeots, but many were other wise, and tho work so far pronounced a failure Tho ladies seem to bo heart and soul in tho work and aro determined to succeed. Upon motion it was decided that an other meeting bo held at Galveston on February 18. It was announced that during the time intervening between tho adjourn ment and 4 o'clock this alteruion, and whilo tho ladies' meeting was in prog ress, a conference with a number of railroad offioials would bo hold. Adjournment was then had till 4 o'clock p. m. The meeting of tho ladies engaged in World's Fair work convened at tho Board of Trade rooms at 3 o'clook was well attended and was opened by the following address by Mrs Tobin, of Austin: To the Members of tho Kiccntlvu Committee: I take pleasure upon this ocoasion, the fust meeting of the Excoutive Board of Lady Managers for Texas of tho World's Columbian Exposition, to thank you for 'your prcsenoe bore, and to express my gratitude tor tho zoalous support you have given ia tho arduous duties imposed upon me. Ttioro has been an apparont, if not a real disposition on the part of tho men of of Texas to rclegato tho wholo question of how and whon to raiso the funds necessary to have tho state creditably ropresonied at Chicago, to women and school children.

Tho many plans ol entertain ments in tho largor towus and oittts, have boen earnestly carried out, aud the finest vocal mid instiumental talent invoked to mako tho entertain intnt attruct.ve, without a success that approximates to the ustiuiated requirements. Eloquent appeals have beeu made ovor and over, a thousand timet; brilliant compositions have been published and republished, uutil the subbject has been exhausted, and t.t enthusiasm seems frozen and patri otism dead. T110 history of every iffart in tho direction of securing money, is but a humiliating record of monotonous failure. It is verj evidont that wo caunot rely upon the methods already tried, and new ones must be considered, disousscd aud adopted. For that purposo wo havo been called together, and I invito (lib most unreserved freedom of exprefcsion from overvono present. For my part I would suggest the formation ot bmall committeLS in overy preoinct in 0 counties and in every ward in e towns aiid citios, to thoroughly can vass their respeclivo jurisdictions and make personal uppeals for subscrip tions. In the face of the advanced thought of the age, we must look for help from those who alone can givo it, tho brave, tho patriotic generous men of our heroic state, our friends, our brothers, husbands and lathers, who, in war, havo led the van on fields of glory and, in peace, have been the first to convert tho stainless blades into plough-shears, and march on to higher destinies, will not withhold their strong arms Irom us now. In Chicago, next jear, will be seen the advanced lines ot civiiiz itioti of all tho nations of tho earth. Literature wdl present her richest 1 ffenngs; art her most splendid achievement;-; music her sweetest symphonies; agriculture her rarest productions, and nature, from the remotest peins of the globe, will offer her priceless treasnrts. Iw us resolve that Texas, wi'h her bound less resources, shall answer, "horo" when the roll of states and nations is called, and America rices before the gaze of the world.

Tho chamber of deputies today was tho sceno of unnsual est. ement. At tho opening of tho sit ting M. Flouqet announced that ho had received an intimation from a Boulang ist member, M. Laiier, that ho desired to ask Premier do Freycinet what stops tho government would tako regarding a pa per's attack upon a certain member of tho cabinot. Do Froycinet said it was clear that tho object of the question was to havo newspaper articles rend from tho tribune reflecting upon tho government, nnd ho thercforo declined to discuss tho matter. As M. Lauer was leaving tho tribune M. Constans, toward whom tho insinuations were directed, suddenly ad vanced and struck him in tho fnco. Thero was nn uproar immediately. M. Flouquet vainly rang tho bell in tho effort to restoro order, and finding his warnings disregarded, finally adjourned the sitting. Tho clamor continued and groups of d?puties became engaged in a violent quarrel. During 0110 of these disputes M. Dolpinch, a Republican member, cuffed tho ears of Deputy Castolin, a Boulangist. As a result of this act of violenco, M. Dmnartel waited on M. Dol pinch to arrange or a duel with Cas telino. At this juncture was another row, resulting in arrangements for an other duel, whish it was settled should precedo that between M. Crstelin and M. Delpinch. About tho same time also in the lobby a well known journalist struck Mr. Boudeau, a Boulangist member. Other personal encounters being immi nent in tho chamber and in tho lobbies, qiiesteures inteifered and having re quested tho deputies to leave, cleared tho lobbies. M. Lauer has telegraphed Henri Roshefort, Boulangist leader, ask ing advice whether ho shall challengo M. Constans to a duel for striking him or resort to prosecution. Members of tho cabinot support M. Constans. A lli'iild-iium Killed. Rankin, Pa., Jan, 20. A switch en gine ran into tho abutment of tho Pitts burg, McKeesport and Youghiougheny railway trestle and dislodged it.

Assistant City Marshal Clay re ceived on Monday, a nice bundlo of olothes from Mrs. W. II. Jones for the distressed Davidson family on seo ond street. Tho two girls havo received crnploi ment at tho Blako shirt factory. The mother is still siok, but on ro oovery will also go to work. The Saunders family in East Waco, who were living on the river bank tinder a wagon shoot, hhvo gono to Hills boro, where thoy will get employ ment. Mr. Clay, by oarnest, personal solicitation, got onough money to pay their faro, and leave thorn a fow dol lars besides. Too much oannot be said in commendation of this officer's ef forts in behalf of these unfortunatos. John Weaver was fined ono dollar for fast driving. A forfeituro nisi was taken on tho bond of Mannio Bloom, against his surotics, Lee Jenk ins, E. Forsgard and Sam Novioh. Afterwards, tho defendant having ap peared, the forfeiture was sot aside and the caso will bo tried tomorrow. Wo regret to learn of tho illness of Police ofijoer M. P. Waddell. Thero is no hotter man on tho forco, and there is not u member of the city administration that docs not sympa thise with him, and would not do anything in their power to alleviate his sufferings. This is not written as such notices sometimes are in meaningless com plimentary terms, but we want to be understood as meaning every word of it. Ho is a straight-forward, honest fearless officor and tho city could ill afford to lose him. Why don't tho City Fathers make somo provision for sodding and beauti fying the grounds around the city hall. Tho proposition to bore an artesian well in the grounds fell still born. It was defeated for coonotnio reasons. But to sod tho grounds would be only a slight expense, and in the summer would be nn oasis to relievo the weary pedestrian aoross Waoo's Sahara tho publio square There is no man in Waco bettor acquainted with tho history of tho legislative proceedings and tho fiscal policy and status of tho oity than Seorotary Jones, lie has it at his finger ends, and without tho slightest hesitnoy is ablo to turn to anything on tho minutes. Tho reporter has often found occasion to test him and has never found him wanting. Mayor McCullooh, though ho has beeu quito ill, has still beon at his post. Great solicitude has been man ifested for him by his subordinates in tho admistration, with whom he is al most universally popular. His uni form kindness, courtesy and oonsidcr tion for the feelings of tho humblest has great'y endeared to him to his confreres. Kind, just nnd gen erous, ho bears, in tho words of tho poots, without reproach the grand old nume of gentleman." While tho reporter was in tho hall Mr. Ockander dropped in and oasually inquired it the bonds wore yot sold. Bo is naturally solicitous ai the oity owob him about thirty thousand dol lars. Ho has been promised 10 per cent, intorest on this: but savs he profors the monoy.
