Of tho registration system the
Santa Anna News very pertinently
sayt: Tho Australian ballot law is

vital force will romtiin all the same,
only more stringout, if possible
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.

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

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

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,

Texas legislature:

Ireland approved it February .
This fites p. preikdeut to folhw
which would at this tiino add to the
popularity of the present administra

approval of the people. That a law

und conservative as Governor Ireland
should have approved the act refenod
