Tho Gilvoston Tribune says: "Docs Waco want to be known at tho ohristening of the warship Texas by having a Waoo lady aolooted to do tho christening? What does Brother Ohristophor think of it? Will ho suggest that Waco ontor Evening Tribuno's contest?" To the people who do not under stand what this means, The NkWS will explain by publishing the follow ing and The News hopes that so mo one will noruinito one, of Waco's young ladies for this important and honorable duty: Tho Tribune makes tho following proposition: "As has been announced in these columns, tho navy department will, early in tho spring, launch from tho Norfolk navy yard one of the largest, newly constructed war ship3. This vessel tho navy deparment has thoughtfully decided to christen "Texas," in honor of the great em pire state, of whioh Oalvocton is tho deop water seaport. For and m behalf of this distinguished honor of the state, Evening Tribuno has, on tho part of Galveston, undertaken to ac knowledge tho appreciation of tho stato by Bonding a representative on tho ocoasiou of the christen ing, in the person of tho most popular young lady, this to bo determined by u popular vote through tho columns of this paper. Evening Tribune has permission to say that a committee of three repre sentative citizens will canvass the vo.es iiod declare the result. This cominitteo consists of Hon. R. L. Fulton, mayor of tho city; Hon. Wm. B. Lockhart, county judge of Galves ton county, and Hon. W. F. Ladd, president of tho Chamber of Com merce. These gentlemen represent per sonally and officially Galveston coun ty and will certainly prove accepta ble. Hon. Wm. II. Grain of tho Sev enth congressional district of Texas in tho United States congress, has kindly consented to represent Evening Tribuno on the oooasion of the chris tening of tho warship Texas. Even ing Tribuno proposes to deoide the question of popularity by a pop ular vote. Tho young lady rooeiving the most votes will be provided with all tiaasportation, travI ng expenses, etc, for herself and a ohaperone from Galveston to Norfolk and return, by thiB paper. At Washington Con gressman Crain will meet tho suooeas ful competitor and her ohaperone and escort them to Norfolk and return to Washington. Hon. Mr. Crain will personally represent tho livening Tribune on this occasion, no will stand with tho successful young lady at tho ceromony of ohristning the groat war vessel. The christening vill be a national event, and Evening Tribune, by tho successful candidate, will break 11 bot tle of Goulct wino over tho prow of tho war leviathan. All this will bo dono proporly and in honora ble acknowledgement of tho favor conferred by tho navy department on thn stato of Texas by giving this name to ono of hor most formidablo war vessels. Tho successful candi dato and her ohaperone will bo provi ded with tho very best and most ex clusive trtveling accommodations en the ontiro trip. Commencing Febru ary 1st Evening Tribune will pub lish the form of a ballot, which must bo cast. This ballot will be cut from tho paper, -properly filled out and roturucd to this office. Candidates may be named and voted for from anywhoro in Texii. This is to ao knowlodgo an honor oonforred on the state, and all Texas is invited to par ticipate in its acknowledgement." Ono of our stato exohanges gives tho following receipt for prosperity : "Give tho oountry an untaxed plow with a farmer behind it in untaxed clothing, who, when his labor is done, can cat an untaxed supper, prepared in an untaxed kitohon, and he won't mind if he never seosi a sub-treasury wcrohouso." A primary onventson is a good thing whero the two political parties are noarly cquully divided, but thoy are an infernal nuisance whero one paity has such a walk-over as Demo cracy has iu "Waco and McLennan county. Tho Democrats of Tyler havo en dorscd Chiltou. Tho public mind is greatly relieved. Suppose they bed refused to endorse him ! Tho report that Wannamaker will resign arouses a hopo in every breast a hopo tint he will not disappoint us. The more natatoriums Waco has, the greater will bo her growth and prosperity. Wa:o is tho largest city in the United States that has no public parks. A FEARFUL COLLISION. A P.km'Iikit Train mill Street Car Coino Together. . Chicago, Feb. 11.
