Tho fellowing is clipped from Tho
ho ttio Editor of tho Day:
Austin, Jan. 23. Chairman Rea
gan and wifu loft for tour through
Mexico in oompiny with Mr. Scerno,
tho New York ottornoy of tho East
Lino bondholders. Thoy havo a
sposial Pullman and will boo the City
of Mexico in Btylo. Dallas News.
Some will remember chat whon a
candidate that I several times express
ed a fear that before two yearn elapsod
after tho adoption of the amendment
that on some sunny summor morning
a special car of a certain railroad mag
nate would bo seen hurrying aoross
tho prairies, and through tho fields,
bearing tho commissioner:, as guests
of tho magnate, down to Galveston, to
enjoy a week or ten dajs of free boats
and beach rides, free hotels,
etc., aud that possibly some hon
est granger, ploughing his fields,
would stop his mule as the train roll
ed by, and lean upon his plow, and
whon to his noso was borne tho aroma
of tho fine Ilavanas smoked by tho
guests as they lolled back on the lux
urious oushions, that he might possi
Vly exclaim as he caught the sniff of
tho smoke, "Ah ! Tobo, I fear this is
all of our sbaro." But I assured
thorn if fiuoh should bo tho case, ho
would still have another interest in it;
that the same b-erzo that bora to he
and Tobo the fragrant smoke would
play with tho narrative of his shirt, as
it struck out through tho rents of his
breeches, which he had mado toiling
with Tobe to contribute his Bhare of
the salaries and other expenses of the
threo political Moses' thatwero to lead
as out of the railroad wilderness.
Tho excursion has come sooner and
gone further than 1 expected. Mow,
who is Simon Storne? He is tho
general attorney of the Missouri, Kan
sas and Texas railroad, a railroad in
wbiah Jay Gould is largelyjintnrested
and ho is generally called Jay Gould's
attorney. It is said of this Simon that
whon a boy, his father sent him to
Suutiay school, whero he learned tho
Lord's prayer, whioh, on repeating to
his father, whon ho oamo to that patt
which says "give us this day our daily
bread," tbo old man stopped him and
said, "Vat ish dat, Simon?" Simon
repeated it ovor, and tho old man
looked at him sternly and said: ''Si
mon, striko him lor pie," and Simon
has been striking for pio from that day
to this. This is tho same Simon that
had that convenient cold that you
may remember of, iu conncotion with
the International and Great
Northern investigation, and it's
dollars to dimes that somewhero on
tho road during this trip, that Simon
will bit down and musingly say to
himself : "Business is business, but
Jay Gould's attorney is tho most in
nocent man on tho road." If a law
yer accepts a fee from a railroad in tho
ordinary course of his business, there
aro certain crowds in this state forever
howling at him, "corrupt nnd bought
up railroad attorney." If a newspa
per editor who is so poor that he is
glad to got temalea aud stale beer for
his rations, does not agroe with tho
gang, again oomes tho howl of tho
"venal and subsidized press." Mr.
Reagiu, the chairman of tho railroad
commission of Toxaa, oan go with his
family and friends, for it is prceumod
ho carries somo friends, ou a ooitly
junkoting expedition to a foreign land,
and not ono of them raise an objec
tion, but will probably oritioiso mo
lor calling attention to it, and
will probably hold mo to bo
worso than tho "corrupt"
lawyer and subsidized pross
Chairman Reagan ought not to havo
loft, in justice to the commission, for
it is gonorally believed that ono of the
commissioners is going into a decline,
from the insidious approaches of a
disease called Fantods, which is an ac
cumulation of blacking around tho
liver, produced, acoordiug to tho high
est racdiod authorities, by tho tonguo
of tho sufferer having too industrious
ly licked tho boots of 6ome man who
had an offioo to give. His friends fear
that if thero is a called session of the
legislature that ho will not survivo to
tbo close.
Thoro aro many things hero in Tex
as that Mr. Reagan might loam that
would bo of more profit to him than a
nioro familliar acquaintance with the
greaser, For instanoo, he might learn
that thoro ib no need of a Pinkerton
annex to tho railroad commission of
Texas: micht learn that a centleman
'could recoivo his mail without the aid
of his detective reading it, scaling it,
and proparing himself to prove both
its contents and delivery. Ho might
learn that whon a man writes an
article for a nowspapor over his
Eiguaturo, that it is probable
that he would not take to
tho woods, on receiving a bulldozing
letter from him, asking whoihor ho
wrote it. Chairman lteagan ought to
hurry back to Texas for there is somo
mighty interesting reading awaiting
his return, not sent to him as he sent
somo of his scaled communioations,
but sent under the cover of registered
mail, so his receipt could bo obtained
The ohairman must return and prove
ono of two things, either that his
name has been forged to two cr three
different documents or that the man
for whoso oyes ono of thoso documents
was intended was so infaunus, both
genorally, personally and in position,
that ho could not be treated as even
an ordinarily decent nigger would
have tLo right to bo treated. If ho
does not he must prove his right to
establish a star chamber annex to the
commission, cut off ears, slit tongues,
cut off fingors, cts., or ho will find that
he is not the only man in Texas with
both tho materials and ability to run a
tri-daily liCwspapcr.
