Tho San nto .lo Light iay-: "The auti option bill i3 a bdl agiinbt gambling, pure and simple, and it should not be killed. 1' rom the outlook it booms e. Gov ernor Taylor the mm who fiddled himself into the effice of governor of Tcnncseo is now trying to fiddle himself into tho United States senate from that stato. If the fcfllicted of tho nation knew of tho comfort and health giving properties of tho waters ol the Geysor City, bho would soon become known as the great Sanatorium of the nation. Let everybody help to advertiso the fact. Texas should be creditably repre sented at tho World's Fair, and if the legislature can, without violating tho constitution, m&ko an appropriation to onable her to be creditably represent ed it should lo dono and the peoplo will sustain them iu it. Of tho registration system the Santa Anna News very pertinently sayt: Tho Australian ballot law is hero to st3y. The pruning knife may be applied to its uwkward, clumsy features, but the principle, with bll its vital force will romtiin all the same, only more stringout, if possible THE OLD BEAR. TilK Nkws a few days ago wrote an article charging that the GA Dal. News was and had been through the entire cotton season a persistent bear, that its reports and utterances on tho subject had all been djctored to suit the interests of thesi who desired to eeo the prioe of the s'.uth's great staplo depressed. To date the old lady by tho ssa has not so -n fit to ac knowled the truth of the statement, and as it could not, in truth, deny it, the matter has rented But it seems The Nkws is not the only person who rus noticed this course, of the Gal. Dal. News Mr. C Hodewald Bjrno chairman committee stitistics and information, after furnishing a tabu lated staten i.t, p -inting i,ut particu larly how the Dal. 01. Newi had erred in iis statiment, and how those errors were calculated to increase over half a million bales the crop i estimate of this season, ar.d how this j over estimate, il believed, would tend to depress the price, closes his com munication with the following signi ficant utterance.-. The error of tho News in quoting from the Chroniclo amounts to veiy nearly ." per cent in acrcago ai.d about '6 per cent in emus. The total error is 8 ptr cent. I am not "str. lining at gnats," because S per cent, on a i .000, Out) crop is iiCO.OuO halts Hut 1 desire to prevent the general public, who accept figures as correct without inviatigtlion, from "hwallowing camels " The Nt wn has tho yield per acre correct, ar.d as all these figurra are to be found in tho same tblo of Uie (Jhronitle (page 01?, this year), I do not understand how the oilier errors occur.ed, pirtkulaily us tho veriest tyro knows ilut up to lSf8 aud in cluding that year there hsd b.'cn onlv ono orop of ; 000,0(0 or over, vz, KS87, w tnlo ths News gives two crops if 7,250.000. Yours olndieutlv, 0 HODEW.M.I) IJVUNfi, Ch'm Com Statistics aud Information. The Galveston News sees the corner into which it was drawn and tries in geniously to avoid tho forco of tho conclusion by reiterating its former assertion and printing a letter signed b.y Cotton Mr reliant, written, perhaps, in its own cfrice, filled with the sam3 stuff Tho facts remaiu the same and are clearly evident to the average reader The Galeston News delib erately falsifies tho records from which it gets its information, and so manipulates the statement as to i-.well the sie of the expected crop, when it could have no other aim thin to help the bears id tho cotton market nt tho expenso of tho people lrom whom it gets its support. Aud in doing it, it played (he traitor to its on constit uents and deseivea to bs .'-treated by them as a traitor and a paper un worthy their confidence or support. As wo go into tho new year it is usually in order with soma to begin to retrench a cutting tA luxuries, sj to bpeak and with a few the first one lopped oil' is their local daily paper This is, in tho judgunent of The News, a serious mistake. The daily pipor is not a luxury; it i3 ft necessity. Think of a town the size of Waco without a morning and evening paper, and then imagine, if you can, either flourishing when thoso who should support them regard the money fiptnt for subscription as so much lavished upon a luxury. Support your home papers by subscribing for them and advertising in them If you must re trench cut off your cigar bill. The World's Fair and tho Consti tution. Houstou Post: The Post proposes to urce btate representation at the Columbian exposition and an appro priation tberetor. Tho people of Texas would lite to have the state piopeily and authorita tive y represented at Chicago and they will heartily approve any appropria tion made fir that purpofo Governor Hogg, too, is certainly in favor ol doing an thing he canto further ihe beat and permanent inter ests of Tevas. Tho only question is tho authority under tho constitution to make an appropriation for such a purpose. A few facts which scera to be forgotten, will provo of value in throwing light on this sulject In tho firt pla:e, the clause in the conti'ution that has been ihp bugbear of legislators on the subject was never intended to prohibit Texas from making appropriations to repre sent the state at expositions. Its sole purp;te wn to put an end to "itnmi s ration bureaus, ' suoh as scandalized the state from 1P69 to 1S74 The entire discussion of this matter on the fl ior of the convention and in com mittee duriof? the constitutional con vention of l67o proves this That clause reads thus, under the head of general provisions: Article XVI, section 5G. Tho legis lature Khali have no power to ap propriate any tf the public money tor tho establishment and maintenance of a bureau ofiiuinigration.or for any purpose of bringing immigrants to tiiis btate. Only the inhibition of state aid to any form rf "immigration bureau'' was intended. If a broader interpre tation be giver, then the bureau of 'in surance, statistics and his'ory and ag riculture" seems of doubtful validity. Nine years alter the adoption of this constitution the New Orleans Exposi tion was held, something not dreamed of in I87."). In fact, the Amcri an Centenuial was httlo thought of in Texas in 1873 Vet. in Februarv, hSSl, the following bill pusscd the Texas legislature: Substitute Senato Bill.

This bill pas-ed the senate and went to the house, and whs there pasid February -, LSS-l Governor Ireland approved it February . This fites p. preikdeut to folhw which would at this tiino add to the popularity of the present administra tion, atd would certainly rccoivu the approval of the people. That a law yer so able and a governor to careful und conservative as Governor Ireland should have approved the act refenod to (Stabhshes a precedent that no legislature and gowrnor ne. d hesitate to filluw But more corclu-ivc than all else is the fact that tho anuroDiia tion made was approved by tho people.
