ture. Adopted.
Tho toxt-book bill was taken up. Coch
ran of Dallas offered to amend by strik
ing out section 111 and inserting the fol
lowing: "Tho fact that tho contents of
this bill clearly implios that the peoplo
of tho several school districts of this
state aro incapablo of self-government
and incompetent to regulato their local
affairs, or to protect themselves from
themselves, creates a public neces
sity that tho protecting caro of a cen
tralized and paternalistic government bo
speedily established, and tho further
fact that tho passago of this bill will
greatly facilitate tho accomplishment of
tho ond sought, justifies tho suspension
of tho constitutional rulo which requires
bills to be read on threo seVoral days in
each house, and the same is so sus
pended. "
Tho toxt-book bill discussion will oc
cupy tho attention of tho house two or

New York, March 25. Samuel B.
Althouse, tho richest man in tho villago
of Far Rockaway, L. I., and the largest
land owner, was arrested and taken be
fore Justico Seaman, who released him
on $300 bail, on a charge of petit lar
cency. Mr. Althouse's arrest was made
at the instigation of Dr. S. S. Guy, u
dentist, living in Far Rockaway. Mr.
Althouse and Dr. Guy are brothers-in-law.
Thoy married sisters, the Misses
Mott, whoso father became suddenly
wealthy by tho rapid increase in the
value of real estato on tho Long Island
The trouble between Dr. Guy and Mr.
Althouse grows out of a photograph on
tin, four for 23 cents, taken some years
ago. The picture stood on tho hand
some oak mantol in Dr. Guy's drawing
room. It was pf an apparently hand-,
some man and woman, and when visi
tors asked for information Dr. Guy
would say, "that is Mrs. Althonso and
her old beau, Mr. Bronson." Mr. Alt
houso did not hko this. Ho requosted
Dr. Guy to put the picture of Mrs. Alt
houso and Mr. Bronson in a more pri
vato place or destroy it altogether, but
the dentist refused to listen to such a
procedure. .Mrs. Guy removed tho tin
typo once, and Dr. Guy made such a
fuss about it that she had to return it.
These thinirs convinced Mr. Altlinnu
that Dr. Guy kept tho photograph in
view to taunt nun. He dm not like this
kind of "guying ''
A few days ago Dr. and Mrs. Guy
went away for a hhort vacation. The
picture was left in its pluco, on an easol
on the mantel. When the Guys got
back homo the picture was gono and the
easel broken. For some reuson tho pic
ture had been glued fast to tho easel.
Dr. Guy was furious. Ho learned that
a littlo boy had entered tho liouso and
carried off tho picture. Ho fuund the

LouisvilIjK, Maroh 25. From tho
same gallows from whioh Thcner and
Patterson wore hanged Henry Smith
was swung into eternity this morning
for murder. Tho orimo whioh brought
Smith to tho scaffold was committed
in the afternoon of January 18, 1891.
Without provocation he shot down his
omployor, Louis Speight. Aftor
lingering fivo days Speight died. Tho
seeno of the crime was at tho Speight
saloon and grocery at tho eight mile
house, on tho Brownsboro road.
Smith did not oloso his eyes during
the night. At C o'clook, just aftor
service by Row Taylor, Smith was
handcuffed and his arms pinioned.
Immediately afterward the start was
made for the scaffold. When ho
mounted tho soaffold, Smith, whoso
courage had never loft him, stepped
to the front and made a short speeoh.
Ho said ho had nothing to say but,
welcomed death. He was satisfied
that ho would pass into that world
whore there was nothing but happi
ness. Ho dosed with a fervent
amen. He then stopped on tho trap.
As tho uoobo was put around his nook
Smith laughed and said: ''Bo care
ful." He was smiling all tho while.
At 0:20 the black cap was put on and
noose adjusted. At G:22 the trap fell
and tho body dropped perfectly still,
but after a few seoonds it began jerk
ing in convulsions. At 0:24 Smith's
hands begain twitching, this lasted
for a moment on two and then tho
body became limp. At 6:38
Doctor Gavin pronounced him dead.

Mr. Tom Wilsford, an account of
whose approaching marriago was pub
lished in The News a few days ago,
returned on the midnight train last
night from Vernon, Texas, with his
beautiful bride. They were met at
the depot by a number of friends,with
a band of music, which, as the newly
wedded pair stepped from tho train,
played a lively air, while the hands of
the lion of the occasion and those of
the blushing bride by his side, were
grasped in hearty weclome home and
lavish congratulations uttered. The
party then entered tho carriages in
waiting and were driven to No. 626,
North Eighth street, their future home,
where an elegant repast was spred,
and all ate, drank and were merry.
The News joins the many friends
of the young couplo in hearty con
gratulations and wishes them a long,

Tho groat Panhandle is largo enough

land is cheap. Thoro is plenty of
honiestoad land hero, but it is very
rough. There is sohool land in
ahunditnoo of excellent quality, be
sides patented land of finest grado at
from $1 to $5 por acre. Fruit and
vegotablos jjrow well hero, and wheat,
oats, corn, in faot everything suited to
this oliinato flourishes.

wild turkoys, prairio chickons aro all
Elontiful. Thoro is one thing we
avon't got, and I am glad of it. It is
negroes. This is strictly a white
man's oountry. I have seon but one
nogro siuoo I came hero and ho was in

them into this oountry. Wo want
good white neighbors, but no black
