The way to lose is to get on the wrong side and defend it." Then the Post adds: "So far, so good; now, if you please, which is the right side?" The Post will find out if it will keep on reading The News. It takes a long time to cet an idea into the heads of some folks, but perseverance will finally accomplish even that.

'Gerald as stated in a card a few days ago is a candi date for congress for the district in which McLennan county is lo cated be that district arranged as it may. There is not the least indication as yet what district McLennan county will be in, nor is there any indication as to the other counties to compose it. Judge Gerald however pur poses to make the race against the field even if he does not know at this time its metes and bounds orthe personnel of the opposition. He has not begun his canvass yet but his speech two years a&o so far as it dealt with questions of national import can perhaps be -taken as a predicate. His views then expressed were sound and met with general ap proval. There are of course ques tions which have come to the . . ... . . iront since tnat time upon which it is. 'necessary for him to give expression, but Judge Ger ald is not a man who is afraid of any question of general or party principles cr policy and he will spleak no uncertain sound when the time comes. A OAT'S WORK AT WASHINGTON. Senator Cockerell of Missouri, and Representee O'Neill of Mas sachusetts, have aroused the ire of the department clerks by intro ducing bills in their respective houses requiring clerks to work eight hours a day instead of six and a half as fixed by the heads of the departments. The Times Democrat in the course of an edi torial Says: "The senators arc greatly divided on this subject of exacting more work from the clerks; and, notwithstanding the production of irrefutable figures showing that by increasing the day's work to eight hours instead of the present six and a half an expense of between $300,000 and $400,000" would be annually saved to the country, the probabilities are that the bill will be defeated in the senate. Senator Teller, of Colorado, has made him self the champion of the clerks in opposing the measure; and such pitiful pictures of poor, over wrought and aching brains and of an intelligent work in conse quence, docs he conjure up as sure to result from the proposed excessive work, that senatorial sympathy is greatly on his side and that the bill stands but a meagre chance of passing. Eight hours is not too much for any man or woman to work each day. Farmers work on an average about twelve hours a day the year round and men in some of the professions do even more. Of course the shorter the day the larger the number of employes required at the capital and as this constitutes one of very desirable political pulls it is not likely that any reformation can be hoped for at present. Tho People's Party will mootn Omaha, Neb., on tho 4th of July for tho purpose of nominating a national tiokot. Tho 8 votes of Nebraska will bo cast for the Republican candidate Tho Democratic cauous on tho ail vor question on the 25th demonstrat ed beyond doubt that tho Democratic party can carry tho solid south with a froo silver plank in tho platform. To tho Worth Mail No, Georgo Clark is not governor of Texas yet, but Christmis hasn't coino this year, either. How do you hko our anno unco moot column?

Whore Ignorance Is not Bliss. 70 Texas Reports 283; 7 S. W. Re porter 742 Seale vs. Baker. These important dooisions, firmly establish tho porsonal responsibility of omcers and directors ot oorporato or banking institutions in Texas and should reooivo the careful considera tion of mcrohants and business men generally. This responsibility oannot bo avoided by tho ploa of ignoranco of tho affairs of the bank or company they represent, and if supposed yoarly examinations of tho books aro careless ly, indifferently, or falsely made, wheroby said direotors and tho public aro deceived as to tho truo oondition of affairs, thoy are not exousod or held less liablo, and tho depositors and stockholders who aro losers thereby oan recover. Audits and examina tions of books of a company or corpo ration should bo mado by special and disinterested accountants, of estab lished reputation in their businoss, for tho benefit and protection of officers, direotors, stockholders, and tho publio generally.

With their great new stock arriving and to arrive they will be distanoed by no similar firm in the oity and with every oonvenienoe, and low prices will make tho season of 1892 conspicuous. Ladies who aro all wido awake on dry goods both aa to quality and prioo should never miss the fresh bright advertisomonts of tho Lewino Bros, which appear in The News as they from time to time sot forth tho attractions to purchasers.
