In our ropoit of oourt proceedings Wednesday wo stated that Gurloy, Ross and Gurley soourod judgment against tho Waoo Stato bank in the sum of 5,0G0. Tho facts aro that tho Waco State bank sued tho Gulf, Brazos Valley and Pacific Railway company on notes amounting to something near $G,000, long past duo and sued out attach ment against their property. Tho jury found tho attachment wrongfully sued out and gavo it the valuo of the property and tho bank took the property attached and return ed judgment for tho balanoo of tho debt. A News reporter picked up a very tender littlo epistle on tho streets on election day.

The Needed Natatorlum. Too muoh praise cannot be given to those who erect such public institu tions as natatoriums, becauso thoy are public benefactions. They aro also big undertakings and ones in which the builders take big risks, as a littlo oalculatiun will show Hut that they will pay and pay well is an assured faot as soon as the public is educated to patronizo thom liberally. Tako tho oost of a natatorium with its real is tato and well at $-10,000 and a finoone can hardly bo built for lebs. The in terest on oapital will bo at ten per oent 4,000 per jear. lho expenses, takiog the Padgitt natatorium as an example, amounts to $8040 a year. To tms add taxes, repairs and insurance, say $300, and tho total early ex ponses will bo $8,000. To pay ex penses tlipreforc from tho pool alone will require, at 25 cents each, aO bathers for every day in tho year. Even at these largo expenses a nata torium may be made to pay, provided that tho public can be cduoatcd to patronize them. But here is tho rub. There oould be no more commodiou, pleating or in viting plaoo than tho Padgitt natato rium. Tho building, the baths, the water and the conduot of tho place in beyond comparison with anything in the stato. No placo was over run with a keener seno of what in duo tho great public and no exponso in spared to mako it inviting. And yot this natatorium is not patronized as it should be. Outside of occasional crowds the patronage of tho natatori um is confined to u limited number That number is constant and never falling. They givo tho natatorium preference over everything, because thoy find health, vigor and asiuneinent preferablo to all other things thoro You see there the same peoplo always and they aro a good steady oustoui But there aro not enough of them They fall far short of ninety a day or fifty or forty. Tho faot U it will tako years to get tho people, tho homo peo pie to fall into swimming as a habit. It is lamontable that there should bo such an apathy to the health, the ploasurrs and tho other virtues of bathing in such waters as ours but it is no lets a faot that that apathy exists and that it will take years to overcome it A natatorium will just pay exponBcs from tho pool when ninoty peoplo batho in it every day in tho year and that timu seems to bo romoto. To be a paing institution it mutt bring peoplo lrom abroad, rich invalids, and to that end it must be supplied with hotel piivi legos and bu sequestered from tho rush of business. Such an institution bringing money from all parts of the country would bo of immeasurable bonofit to Waco, and bo an immonstly paving institution when fully patron ized. Ono great natatorium inviting invalids from the whole world would mako Waoo a second Hot Springs and also aocommodato the always small homo patronage which iB to be expected.

THUSE BONDS. l'ruo Status of That Waco and Northwestern Bond All'alr. So muoh has been written and said about tho Wico and Noithwostcrn bonds that a short history would no doubt be interesting to the readers of fun Nkws. With this object in viow a News loporter interviewed somo old citizen this morning and olicitcd tho fo lowing intnrmation. In 1872 tho Morgan Lino Company who were operating a line of steamers to Galveston was tho owner or princi pal stockholder in the Houston and Texas Central Railway. Waco at tho tirito had no railroad nearer than Iircmood. Tho Morgan lino proposed to extond their road to Wuco or rath t build a now road to bo called the Waoo and Northwottorn. Tnis thoy proposed to do provided Waoo would tako fc 100,000 worth or stock in tho road. Tho oity was existing at the timo under a charter which permitted such a debt to be made Tho oity then iseucd bonds for the amount and the Morgan Company rcooived them in lien of tho cash but by somo negli ueuce or oarelcBannsH not now under stood the stock certificates were never delivered to tho oity The city otn ployed eminent legal council both hero and at Washington, D. C, who finally rendered an opinion that the oity was legally liable though tho oon tiaot in nforence tc tho stock had not been complied with. As soon as this decision was mado known tho city began purchasing and retiring tho bonds as f.itt an it oould bo dono. This was dono to tho extent of $58,000 leaving $12,000 worth un paid when they matured. Thoso bonds, about which ho much talk has been mado about tho oity's credit being impaired, havo nover been pre sented for payment though they wero advertised for. Somo of lho holdcru wero heard from and thoy preferred to ho d tho bonds rathor than havo thom paid. From tho present status of affairs it would bo difficult for any ono to imhginohow tho city's credit could tin damaged by such a State of affairs. Evidently an unjust debt at first and only unpaid because thoy wero not presented for payment it would tako a wonderful stretch of imagination to call it a default. Extras for Bugglos.
