There was a hearty rumor on tho
streets this morning that th6 Toxas

Missouri Kansas & Texas and would
shortly enter tho city on their traoks

emanated from a suggestion mado by
prominent railroader that it would
bo a great saving to both roads to
have a oonneoting switch at some
point near lloss where tho two roads
are only a short distanoo apart. It
waB however only a suggestion and
at that by a gentleman having no
oonnootion with tho traok building of
cither road. Another rumor was that
tho Texas Contral had or would pur

A Few Points of IntcroNt to tho IMib

Competent Authority Mayor IUc.
VullorU's Circular Lottor.
For third time I appear in print in
advocacy of my oandidaoy. In no
other relation of life would I permit
myself to be put upon tho dofouiive,
so much as in thiB oaso. It is a neoos
sary condition with tho office-holder.
Being in, he must stand a siego of the
In my two previous statements
I have shown the truo inward
ness of tho financial situation. I will
not recapitulato my arguments therein
but reprint tho two papers, with this,
and simply refer to thorn.
I may add that the bonds, about
which so muoh has been Baid, and
whioh appear to give my enemies so
much solicitude, are praotioally in
Waco now. Tho keys to tho Now
York safoty depoait box, containing
them, aro in tho hands of City Secre
tary Jonoy Jones, and tho keys, aro in
effect, the bonds. The considerable
cost of bringing them baok to Waco ib
a useless expenditure of tho people's
money. This would also involve the
oost of returning them to New York
whon sold.
Part of tho aldermen claimed thoy
could soli tho bonds at a muoh higher
prico than tho one I obtained. Moro
than throo months have expired and
they have failed to aooomplish it. I
will givo a prize to any of these gon
tlomon who will sell them for as muoh
as I did. They will not bring as
muoh again until timo enough has
elapsed for tho oountry to reouperuto.
Now, who committed the blunder?
Tho interest of tho city is being
slaughtered for politioal ends.
Baker, Horbort, Jones and Payne of
tho oouncil say I was correct. The
city attorney says so; eminont legal
talent of Waco and Now York havo
decided in my favor that I had a
right to sell; common eonso. justice
and honesty dictates to us that tho
contraot should havo been oompliod
I claim the right of re-oleotion, for
many reasons. Waco was struggling
under the serious inoonve
nienoo necessarily belonging to
a oity withont a ohartor ; its
gonoral incorporation gavo it only tho
functions of a town. It could not
levy needed taxes to defray bond
issuo, Tho fines assessed by its courts
wero subjeot to revison.' It was a big
tortoiso without a shell, subjeot to tho
harpoon of anybody. Whon tho strug

I do not claim to havo done all.
Waco has proved a suoccss. Its great
buildfngs are springing up like magic
palaco. Its business is iooroasing.
Under my administration Waco did
not maroh toword its goal. It leaped
forward, and that, too, under most dis
astrous conditions. Its growth was in
spito of, not by tho aid of cirourastan
cos. Tho small-pox horror inttrvonod.

Other troubles came, reinforced by a
period of finnnoial depression, worso
