Soap What is wanted of soap for the skin is to wash it clean and not hurt it. Pure soap does that. This is why we want pure soap; and, when we say pure, we mean without alkali. Pears' is pure; no. al kali in it; no free alkali. There are a thousand virtues of soap; this one is enough. You can trust a soap that has no biting alkali in it. All sorts of stores sell it, especially druggists; all sorts of people use it. ANNOUNCEMENTS. County OkfiuurH. We aro mtliorl.ed to uniminoo Mr. .1.

George Clark an nounces as a candidato lor governor. It is truly refreshiug to icad tlio dos ing paragraph which breathos the truo principles of Deniooracy und stamps tlio new candidate for governor with tho gonuioo Jeffersonian brand. It is this: "Wo are governed too muoh, more than Ivupublioan Massachusetts, and many of our laws rosulr only in catiug up the substance ol the people Let us abolish all useless ofiices.reducQ our establishment and expenditures, quit taking care of our friends by provid ing places for them at tho publio ex pens:, t""it publio offiuo as a public trust and not as a privato snap, do unto our neighbors aB wo would havo them do unto us, and turn Texas looso with all tio liberties of everv charac ter her people can enjoy oommensurato with publio order, and lot her grow. Press this button and she will do tho rest." Thoro was nover a doubt in Judge Clark's mind a9 to tho ability of the pooplo to tako c.ro of . the country and themselves if allowed to pcrsuo tho oven tenor of thoir way, and he is willini; to trust them. "Turn Toxas looso and let hor grow," is a good platform by itsolf. Tho pcoplo of Toxaa havo found out to their Borrow that tho howl for more law and a stronger povernmont to keep capital from pauperizing them, was the howl of tho demagogue who profits by their poverty. Judge Clark doesn't fail to tell whero ho stands on tho commission question. Sub mitting to tho will of the people as expressed at the polls last year on the commission amendment, ho di'sites to soo tho will of the peop'o carried out faithfully, and favors amending tho law parsed by tho last legiilaturo to uiako it conform to the batio prin ciples of our state and federal coasii tutions. Judgo Clark thus forces tho issue between Governor Hogg and himself : "The obnoxious features of that law, as ilioy occur to me now, are those provisions which give the governor tno power oi appointment, ami prac tically debar railroad oompan cs from tho priviledge of appealing to tho courts of tho country fir the protec tion of their proporty. This laiter feature smells of rank communism, and neither of them, as they stand, riflect the matured viows of our law linkers. They aro tho spawn of a midnight conclave, aad were foisted upon the a atute book under tho ltieh of an intolerant excouuve. The governor is responsible for depriving tho peo ple of their right to seleot their agents for the administration of justice, as he is also responsible forthoso other pro visions of the law which trarnplo under foot tho great principles of civil liberty as embodied in magna oharta and in both of our constitution, sttto and federal. He diatatcd both and refused to tolerate any modification of Oither, as is well known to members ol tho legislature. And tho legislators yielded their own judgment in ordei not to jeopardize a commission." The fight is on and The News will be found in tho front on the open field battling for a return to genuine Dcmooratio principles. Wo want a brave, truo patriot and statesmau for governor, too, and Goorge Clark fills the bill all the way out to tho margin on all side?. LOCA.LETTS- The Sn Antonio Express says it has a fine surprise in store for its half million Mexican readers. We are gucf.sing ten to one tho Express contemplates sending a hot tamale snugly wrapped in tho "groat reli gious'" to each subscriber. Any takers?

In the United Stittes circuit court Judge fiiner handed doxvn his deeioion which, if .sustained, will compel several counties of tho htato to lay out nearly .$0,000,001). When or ganized at vuriqus times tho counties issued county warrants to raiso funds and securities, which were placed upon tho market and purchased largely by eastern parties. In January, 18S1, Custer county issued a number of warrants, upon tho faco of which it agreed to pay 10 per cent intorest upon them until paid. H. II. Dudley purchased beveral thou wind dollars worth of them on specula tion. There was no money in tho Custer county treasury until 1838, when Air. Dudley presented his warrants for pay inont. They wore repudiated March 25 18110. He brought suit to recover. Tho county set up a plea under tho Colorado ttatute of limitations that tho plaintiff was barred because ho had not brought suit in six years after the causo for ac tion had accrued as tho statute re quired. Tho plaintiff contended that tho cause did not accruo until January, 18S8, when there wero funds in tho treasury and when tho war Boll's Weekly Messenger indicates tho soriousnoss of tho present outbreak and urges public support of Chaplin, if nec essary, to stop all imports of live cattle. llrmvnril litu.tline.
