It is reported that Mr. Cleveland
am! his cabinet do not think it neces
sary to call an extra session of con
glens, l.ut it is also si'ited thai tlie
secretary id tlie treasury will in the
viiculion prepare a tarill bill ready to
bo adopted and ued as a house bill at
theiiex' (tension of congress. I. will
lie remembered that In this way the
bill was prepared during the prosi
deucy of Mr. I'olk by his secretary of
the treasury, and which occasioned
some revere comment, as all financial
bills mu-t originate in the house, but
the bill was finally furthered by the
iioin-e and passed, repealing the tariff
This will save time. The Mills and
McKmley bills, both prepared by
committees during the session ut con
gress, consumed u great deal of time.
Treasury experts have to fie employed
any way, and us Mr. Carlisle is emi
nently quiililled to draw (ho bill, no
formal objections will be made on that
account. It can be fatiiered by the
house and comply with the constitu
tional requisite that all financial bills
shall originate in the house of repie
sentulives. Till: Helton Journal, which was an
enthusiastic supporter of Governor
Hogg in the late campaign, says: "It
is to lie regreted that Chairman liaker
ami members of the State Democratic
committee have seen lit to promulgate
the resolutions printed elsewhere."
Tills refers to the resolutions adopted
by the meeting of the committee lit
obedience to the secret call of Chair
man Baker. The Journal explains
that while the resolutions might con
tain soui.d doctrine, the objection to
giving I hem publicity was on account
of the hope of a reconciliation of the
two wings of the party to which tlie
Journal says it is understood that
Senator Mills would lend his influ
ence, and adds that this is practically
knocked lu the head. The States
man liitimated that too much import
ance was given by the papers to this
pronuticiamento of Mr. llaker, believ
ing the action of the committee would
not be sustained by Mr. Maker's wing
of the party as in evidenced by the
Journal and other papers of that ilk.
The Journal complains that tlie to r s
olutions "make the I mocratiu party
of Texas to appear as a huge machine
with a Toracious appetite humiliating
to a siucere lover of his party."
Tun Democratic senatorial caucus
elected Senator Gorman of Maryland,
chairman to manage t lie affairs of the
party for tLe next lour years. Gor
man i9 by far the shrewdest political
manage..' In the United States. He
was educated up from the bottom,
from the control of a ward election to
a preeidental election, and he has be
come the Napoleon of political tactics
and maneuvers. He is fully acquaint
ed with every phase of political his
tory, a thorough judge of men, cool
and determined, and knows just what
key to touch to assure success. If
there can be any criticism of his
management, it is that lie is a little
too much Inclined to yield principle to
policy f o gaiu his ends; notwithstand
ing that lie is the rigbt man in the
right place. It may be added that he
is a thoiouph jarty man. It is likely
that lie never cu't any other than a
straight Democratic vote in hid life.
Thk Helton Journal says that Capt.
H.T Prater, the well Known hssis'ant
door keeper of the house of represen
tative, is an uppli' an',, for postnuiater
at Helton. For tlie last eight years
Captain I'rattr has demonstrate his
efficiency as a polite and attentive of
ficer in the Texas legislature and lias
become a very populur man. If Mr.
Pendleton recommends bini and he
gets the appointment there is no boubt
that he will discharge his duties faith
fully and satisfactorily to the citizens
of Hell county.
Mis. Cleveland's declaration that
ho will not appoint to office any man
who held olllce under his former ad
ministration manifests his belief in
rotation in olllce, but it is a little in
consistent with his ideas of civil ser
vice. Underthe latter it would setm
that an eflicient and tried oflicer
ought to be in the line of appointment

CO CUT OK CIVIL Al'i'EALS.
The court of civil appeals for the
Third district handed down the fol
lowing1 opinions Wednesday, March
Wm. Kerltcks vs. the Keystone
Hand and Cattie company from Frio,
This is a fcuit of trespass to try title
i lie v. bole case turn ii'g upon the suf
ficiency ot conflicting testimony estab;
lUhing the identity of certain parcels
of land. The evidence supports the
finding ol (be jury and there being no
error n the chaige the Jucguient
is Hlllrmed. Opinion by Fisher C. J.
The International and Great North
ern Hallway Company vs. Hynes,
from Medina, v-uit lor damages on
account ot delay in the transportation
of ln.rser-. The defense was that the
delay was caused by reaeon of the
inability of the trainmaster to control
the movements of the train .because
I tie peculiar condition of the atmoa
jdiere rendered the telegraph liues
useless. The appellants asked for a
charge to tlie effect that if it was
louud that such was the cause of the
delay that a verdict tie found for the
defendant. This was refused and is
aieigned as error. This ques
tion should have been sub
mitted alliraiatively to the jury
a general charge upon the acts God
it was not sufficient. The charge
aeked may have been faulty, but it
was sullicienl to direct the court's at
tention to tlie fact that the pleading
and tlie evidence justified the defend
ant in asking an affirmative charge.
A common carrier may often be ex
cused for delay w hen it could not on
the BHine grounds be excused if the
property was destroyed. The tele
graph is a necessary part of the rail
road business and if delay is caused
by influences beyond the carrier's
control, rendering the wifts unavaila
ble, such delay would be excused
upon the same principle that ex
cuses delay when caused by
mobs or s.rikes. Because the
court, failed to correctly instruct the
jury the judgment is reversed and the
cause remanded, opinion tiy Key, J
Gamel vs. Smith, from Mason. ThN
suit was brought by appellant for the
purpose of procuring a judicial con
struction of a tru.U conveyance exe
culed ' to appellant as trustee. The
Case was dismissed on general de
murrer under the constitution as
amended in 1801, the district court
bus jurisdiction of all causes where
the jurisdiction Is not expressly con
firmed upon some other court. Some
of the persons claiming under the
trust deed desired one interpretation,
others wanted a different one, and
other perplexing questions were
presented in the petition.
as tho law forbids tiustees irom so
tning their trust as to make a profit
for tin mselves.so alsoit protects thtm
from loss if they act according to the
law in good faith, aud in all ca"ts ot
doubt, they are entitled to instruction
from the court (1'cit.v on Trusts. 61 N.
H., 41' I; 3a Conn , 481'; 7 K I., 383)
1'ho petition states a cause entitling
appellant to aid and direction in the
execution ot his trust. The judgment
is reversed and the cause remanded.
Opinion by Key, J.
iVeber vs. Moss et al., from Llano.
Suit ot trespass to try title. The
plaintiff' chimed title to land
by virtue of a deed, the
record ol which was destroyed
by tire. The first question to decide
is, did the failure of plaintiff in error
to re-regifter his deed to 1 be land sued
for within tour years alter the des
truction by lire of the book containing
tfie record of his deed deprive him ol
the legal effect of the proper registra
tion of that deed after the destruction
of such record. The rule of law an
nounced in Merrimau vs. Morgan
(1!) S. W. Kep., 1002) and O'Neal vs.
Peeteis (79 lex., -So,) settles this ques
tion adversely to the plaintiff in error.
The next question is, did sufficient of
the deed remain undestroyed to serve
as notice? As all instruments of this
sort to have the proper ellect must be
properly proven and acknowledged,
it must be held that there was not a
sutllcient amount left to serve
as notice to subsequent purchas
ers. There is no error in the
record and thejudgment is aflirmed.
Opinion by Fischer C. J.
.lesson et al. vs. The Texas Laud
and Loan company from Coleman.
Suit of trespass to try title. This casi
in Volvos a fictitious sale of the home
stead and depends upon tlie weight
ef evidence relative to the acts of an
agent. The jury should pass upon
the weight ot tlie evidence and not
the cuiirt. There was error in charg
ing tlie jury to find lor the
plaintiff. The court may have cor
rectly concluded that the evidence was
slight and the verdict should
have been for plaintiff, yet he should
not have invaded the province of fhe
lury lu passing upon the facts. The
judgment must be reversed and the
cause remanded. Opinion by Col
Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe rail
way company vs. Lllis from Lampas
as. This case was decided by the
Commission of Appeals on February
1, lb'Ji', and thejudgmeut of the lower
court affirmed, lhe supreme court
granted a rehearing. The question to
be decided Is the constitutionality of
the a'.'t of April 5, 1881), which allows
rejovery by plaintiff of an attorney's
fee not to exceed $ 10 In case of recov
ery against a railway company
under proscribed restrictions and con
ditions. The act is assailed on the
ground that it is in violation of sea. 50
and art. 3 of the constitution, that it. is
in violation of sees. 1!), 13, 1' of the Hill
of Rights and also sec. 1, art. 14 of the
constitution of the United States.
The principle objection la thai: the
act discriminating unjustly against
railroads or is obnoxious as class leg
islation and deprives them of properly
rights wit ooiit due process of law.
There Is an inecousilable conflict of
opinion in the cases and books upon
ooth of these questions. v hat is un
constitutional class legislation
in the opinion of the
courts, is considered legitimate
by other courts. The law of minors,
mairied women and other divisions of
society and occupations is class legis
lation, but it is not invalid. Legiti
mate class legislation is baed upon
the necessities ol society, of commerce
and business, and it is the duty and
privilege of the law-making powtrs to
recognize classes ami enact laws for
their government and protection, not
a Class distinguished by wealth or
title, but by the necessities of the peo
ple and the o.-cupaiioiisdeemed UietLj
and promotive of the general public
welfare. In our opinion the provisions
ol the constitution of this state and ol
the United States cited by appellant
were not intended to take from in
legislature tho power to classify tili
.ens according to their avocations and
enact laws beneficial to them. The
objection that the law discriminates
as to litigants is not well taken. All
qui tanc actions are of this character.
lhe legislature certainly has the
power to impose fines and forfeitures
us a police regulation, when it in
eludes all persons within a class upon
which the statute can operate. We
find no error in the findings ot the
court and the judgment is affirmed

Five years ago on board ship our three boys
were vaccinated. Joseph bad a very sore arm,
so bad at one timo that we were afraid It would
have to be taken olT. At length It seemed to get
well, but about two months utter, he begau to
complain of soreness and pain in tho vaccinated
arm. lie had occasionally shown some signs of
scrofula, but nothing serious. His arm, how
ever, grew worse and worse and became swollen
and covered with sores. The inflammation and
sores also spread nil over his body, and he

Totally Blind with Scrofulous
Hood's Sarsaparilla Gave Back tier
Sight, and Joy to ller
" Waterbury, Vt., Nov. 19, 1892.
" C. I. Hood & Co., Lowell, Mass. :
" lu April, 1880, my little girl Mamie, who
was then 3 years old, commenced having ulcer
ated eyes, also had sores back of her ears. Her
sight began to grow dim, and I feared she
Might be Blind.
I then lived in Jericho, Vt. In tho early days
of June I went with her to the Mary Fletcher
hospital In Burlington, and there she was
treated four different times a surgical opera
tion each time, one of which left tho scars now
visiblo on the cyo balls. She recovered from
this treatment each time, a slight improvement
for a lew days, was soon worse thim ever.
She could discern daylndit from darkness, but
could not nre to walk ocriwi the room.
I next went to a large hospital in Hartford,
Conn. At this hospital no surgical operations
were performed, but medicine was dropped into
her eyes and given her to take. She was at this
hospital about ten weeks, eoulinuallr grow.
iug worse, and when 1 look her in November
Was Totally Blind.
" I arrived at my station in Jericho with the
child, sail in spirit and impoverished in pocket
completely discouraged. On our way to the
house from the station, we stopped at the store
of Capt. JlcKinnan.who was an old sea captain,
to warm ourselves. The captain had known
the child lif iore we went away. Whilu wo were
warming ourselves Mamie said:
"' 1'ap.i, it's dark, whore are you? 1 can't sea
you, come to me.' ....
