TIiuiuun Jeffemon. The Sholby county oourt in Ten nessee Las reconsidered its formor ac tion appropriating $iiD,000 to tho World's Fair and tho Appcal-Ava-lanohe wants tho people to reconsider their aotion in electing tho members of tho court. Tho San Antonio Express of tho 10th instant, came to us promptly, but tho editorial pago was hardly legi ble becaufio of soaroity of ink. The closing sentence of a familiar para graph Bottled tho identity of the edi torial pago without reforonco to tho number, howovor. It was: "Cod llo theso faots in your mind, busi ness men and property owners of San Antonio." In this issue appears an interview with Senator John II. Harrison, in which he states positively that ho does not regard tho meeting in this city Jan. 16, as representing tho voioo of the Domooraoy of McLennan county and will not accept tho aotion of tha meeting as instructions to him, on the senatorial question. It seems a though Sonator Harrison If commanded by a majority of tho Democrats in MoLonnan and Kalis county too, would only voto as in structed and his influence would bo used against tho man who was tho chcico of his constituents, if that man was Mr. Mills. Tub News belioves tho senator can be induced to modify his position as stated in tho intor fiew. Tho influence of a representa tive is supposed to bo subject to in struction as well as his vote. Mr. Springer, the ohairman of tho ways and means committee, attempted to adjourn the house tho otbor day to eave a pet bill from defeat, and was unceremoniously sat upon. When he was thns reminded that tho leader of aDomeoratioJhouse was not mado by appointment, Mr. Springer, so the Houston Post correspondent says, "shot out the door like a cannon ball, and you could have played oheokers on his coat tail." This was Mr. Springer's first attempt to load tho houso, and whilo tho zephyrs were toying with his whiskors and that coat tail ho perhaps, firmly resolved that it would bo the last. But, and we desire to eniphusize the expression, Springer will corns again and if tho authority given hin by Speaker Crisp is not properly re spected, he will know the reason why. Ilasn'tMr. Springer assured tho Domocrats of New York that no free coinage bill would pass this ses sion? and hasn't ho also told them just what tariff legislation is to be expected this sossion7 How, in the name of Dave Hill,e can Springer mako a consignment uiiloss goods are delivered to him when ho calls for them? It is too bad I too bad!! It rasps our soul to contemplate tho pre dicament in which tho insubordina tion of tho houso has paloed tho ap pointed leader, JUST LIKE HENRY CLAY. Tho Houston Post, which has with hold its "support from Mr. Mills, though ic rofrainod from opposing him, pays him this handBomo oom plimont: "Like Mr. Clay, Mr. Mill would rathor bo "right than president. 'I cannot' he says'obtain any position by doceiving tho people, evon with their own approval. Honors havo no charm for mo when they are obtained at such a prioo.' Mr. Mills has op posed somo of tho demands of the agrioultuaal classes, or at leaBt of the so who assumo to speak for the agricultural classos, beoanso ho has not believod and does not believe that tho relief thoy seek oan be olv taincd by tho mothods they Buggcst. There were thoso who wero quiok to adopt tho political heresies whioh wore antagonistic to Jcffersonian Democracy simply because thoy seem to bo popular, but Mr. Mills was not ono of thorn. Whatever else may be said of Mr. Mills, oven his oppo nents must admit that ho is frank and unreserved in tho expression of his political viows, and that Lis con viotions can not bo changed by the prospect of dofeat, or tho hopo of success." How does the San Antonio Expresg liko this from Hon. W. M. Springer tho ohairmau of tho ways and means committee?. "I would favor tho admission into this country of all tho products of soil and mines of Canada and Mexi co, and all the products manufactured in either country from tho productB of such country or tho United States or of materials whioh might bo import ed into tho United States 'free of dutv if similar products of tho United States oould be admitted into those countries." Aren't you afraid tho infant tamale industry in your town will be knooked out by tho pauper tamale makers of Greascrland? At Mare Ialniwl Yard. Vallejo, Jan. 21. Tho force of men at work at the Mare island navy yard ia larger than for yenrs. The most imior taut work in progress is that on the Bal timore. She is lying in tho stream with coal barges on each side from which the bunkers aro being rapidly filled. Admi ral Irwin says all the Baltimore's repairs are finished now except thoso to tho en gines. These will be given thorough overhauling and will not be completed for ten days or more. Sho cannot go to sea in less than two weeks. He has re ceived instructions to prepare tho dry dockS for tho Charleston and put hor in as soon as he can. Tho monitor Com anche will tako hor placo in tho docks as soon as the Charleston leaves and her bottom will be scraped thoroughly. In ovory other ro 8iect tho Comanche is in first-class condition. She will be retained for har bor defense. Steps havo been taken to replace her two 15-inch smooth bores by rifles of smaller calibre. Tho Mohican, a wooden vessel, carrying eight smooth bores iind two rifles, has been in jwrfect order for six weeks and could go to sea any day. She has so far received no or ders to leave tho yard. Work is also be ing done on the ships Ranger and Adams but thoy will bo of littlo service. Tha Omnha and Swartara aro laid up and probably will never go to sea again. Tha double turroted monitor Monadnock is lying nlongsido tho dock and some work is being done on her, hut hor engines nrc not in and none of her armor ready. Sho is practically out of tho question ai a fighting machine for months yet. Knxlilnc Things at tlio Nayy YanU. Philadelphia, Jan. 21. Everything is life and bustle at Cramp's ship yards, where tho armored cruiser Corsair and tho battlo ships Massachusetts and In diana aro undergoing construction. Tho men aro working briskly and progress may be noted from day to day. Iu the different shoi work is continued until 10 o'clock each night. Henry Cramp was seen in reference to this and asked if the company had received orders to push tho work. Ho said: "There would bo no use to auk us to push our work as we always do that, and I do not see how wo could get along any faster." Tha chief effort of tho large force of men now at work at the lieaguo Island navy yard is directed toward preparing for a great increase in tho capacity of the yard for repairs, and tho construction work of the monitor Montauk is being pushed as rapidly as possible and she will 1 completed within ten days. KmitUpox Abroad. San Frahcisco, Jan. 21. Tho Pacific mall steamer, Rio Janeiro, arrived from HongYong and Yokohoma via Hono lula, with several coses of smallpox aboard. The vessel was at oneo placed in quarantine. ' NOT YET AT AN END. The Aransas Pass Road Strike Is Still On. MEN SETOSE TO SIGN AGREEMENT, And Sliiy Ont drnvo Chnrcra Agnlnftt the Grand Ofllcent Miuilfcnto to Laboring Men of Toxin Circular from tho Man nRciupiit flulvrston ltojcott. Yoakum, Tex., Jan. 2!. Tho com mittee having in chargo tho contract which was signed Tuesday at San Anto nio sottling tho present strike, arrived in this city Wednesday with tho contract signed by Qarrottson of tho Order of Railway Conductors and Thurston of tho Order of Railway Telegraphers. Tho settlement according to contract signed by them calls for the old employes to tako their pfaco behind tho scabs for pro motion. When tho contract was read it wns unanimously decided that tho members of all tho orders horo would rcfuso to work on thoso terms and tho strike was declared still on. Thoy also adopted resolutions asking all railroad employes on tho Sap road and all the different lines to not bnndlo any matter for the Sap road until tho present striko is de clared off by the federated board, whoso hcadquartcrn aro at this placo. Tho yard hero is still manned by negroes, and according to tho settlement signed by Garrettbon and Thurston included those men in tho settlement, Thoro is no chanco for tho matter to be sottled any way soon. Tho men horo roundly denounco Gar rottsou and Thnrston as being bought by tho officials of tho road and thoy have forever lost their influence with tho membors of tho federation here. A tolegtam from ono of the members of tho Order of Railway Telegraphers re ceived horo Tuesday states that two ol tho members of that order rcfuso to work under tho sottlement. Tho mem bers of all tho organizations hero aro unanimous in the opinion that thoy will will win tho striko or, as ono of them ox pressed it, they will stick until h 1 freezes over. Mr. Kiler, chairman of tho board of federation, was interviewed Weduosday night and tho foregoing being read to to him, it was indorsed as the true son timent of tho strikers and he also saya that when the matter is settled it will bo officially announced by tho board of federation from Yoakum. The following circular camo to light here to-day, which explains itself: San Antonio, Tex., Jan. 17. To agents: Reinstatement of old omploye.1 I do not wish any of the old men who took active part in our late trouble to ba ro-employed without permission from tins office, so in caso application reaches you from any of them pleaso bring to my attention with any suggestions you may have to make. I do not meau by this that none of tho old men aro to ba taken back, but I want each individual case brought to my attention and passed on by this office beforo any of them are ro-employed. Geo. L. Sands, General Superintendent, At a union meeting here Wednesday, attended by fully UOO of the old em ployes, tho following manifesto was issued. Tho agreement referred to in tho manifesto is to tho offoct that all employos will havo to stand a rigid time card examination, somo of whom havs been in tho employment of the company since tho road was in its infancy and heretofore havo given perfect satisfac tion. MANIFESTO. To the laboring organizations of tha stato of Texas: Wo hereby call upon thoso loyal fellow brothers who havo at heart the interest of their fellow workmen despita the action of any grand officers. Thii proclamation is issued in order to save a cause that is just and right. Wo hava been subjected to indignities that as American citizens wo must resent. It is only too apparent that tho railroad company intends to substitute in onf places.uegroes iu any capacity possible. Wo fear tho different points have no( been mado conversant with all the facto bearing on this matter. 1. We havo taken a stand as a feder ated board to guard and protect tho in terests of all. 2. Wo havo complied with all legal technicalities and have consulted out different heads trior to such an notion and havo had their sanction so far as possiblo with tho existing laws. 51. Wo havo been positively assured that if we loso this striko, wo lose all prestige and hereafter must bow sub missively to any tonus tho company dic tates, which means we aro to bo lowered to the level of negroes and scabs. Now despito the fact that Garrettson and Thurston havo assumed tho author ity to dictate tho terms all must submit to them irrespective of tho rights ol thoso good, loyal brothers who stood b; us in tho hour of need. We are deter mined to win tho light in the namo ol honor and justice. All wo ask is the unanimous support of thoso who aro in position to help ns. Wo must win, brothors, for if wo do not just think of tho years of labor and toil that have been lost iu tho great cause.
