A neat little pamphlet published by the
Weatherford Native Jute Hope Manufac
turing Company of Parker county comes
to The Gazette office as a welcome
Jarbingerof one of the most important
industries ever started in Texas and one
that can be engaged in by our people
with bnt little expense The fact that
Texas possesses unlimited quantities of
soil suitable for the cultivation of this
plant has been demonstrated practically
by successful experiments made at var
ious times and the perfection of the
jutedecorticator facilitates its saving and
conversion into marketable rope and
cordage at a cost which renders compe
tition hopeless The company referred
to have entered largely into the manu
facture of this class of goods and is offer
ing liberal inducements to those who de
sire to engage in jute raising by furnish
ing not only the machinery necessary but
a market for the raw material as well
The twine that is used in Texas in the
harvest fields in stores and mercantile
honses the rope and cordage
used annually In this state
alone amounts to such a con
siderable sum that manufacturing
them at home instead of sending the pur
chase money elsewhere is s step in the
onward mirch of Texas progress by no
means contemptible The company will
furnish these pamphlets giving full and
thorough instructions concerning jute cul
ture to those applying and to the farm
ers of Parker county it proposes to fur
nish seed and machinery free of cost an
offer that will doubtless be accepted by
many Ia a short time Texas will not
only furnish her own peoplejthis commod
ity but will be prepared to extend her
trade and famish the trade elsewhere
while in many sections ot the state the
one crop Idea will be exploded and the
long reign of King Cotton will be brought
to an end
Germany has long been known as great
in arms in arts and in statesmanship
and she is developing commercial Bla
marcks who will soon be recognized as
the leading spirits of the business world
Eogllsh gunboats following English mis
sionaries opened up a trade that extended
over the world end nude Great Britain
rnler of the seas and of most of the land
German plnck and push of late years has
been making itself felt Germans have
almost driven the English out of Mexico
out of the South American countries out
ot the Bahamas and in fact ont of almost
every country where they had an equal
chance In the struggle for trade The
Samoan episode shows what vigorous
end singularly bold peoplo the Germans
are becoming and with what vim and
persistence they work for supremacy
They never tire never lag never surren
der in their efforts to build up trade with
a foreign cation or crowd out a
rival Tna latest evidence of German
enterprise is shown by tho project of
raislngcotton on the cast coast o Africa
Texas f urnishes the seed and the planter
to superintend thecultivation of the now
crop and in a few years the cotton crop
of East Afrlci or German Africa will be
In the markets of the world offering Itself
In competition to other staples Not
only will Germany engage extensively in
cotton raising in Africa where the lands
re admirably adapted to the purposebut
she will send out her surplus population
to coloniz and claim this new territory
and make of it a powerful auxiliary to the
Fatheiland Unless crippled by a war
with Russia Germany will soon occupy
the place in the commercial world that
hail been claimed by England so long
A Gigantic Scheme of Emigration of
Colored People to South
America on Foot
A Fsrson Prominently Connected with the
Movement Thlnki There Will be
a Blc Emigration
IXDiANAPOLis Ikb Jan 26 Colonel
A A Jones of the State Auditors office
who is connected with the latest proposed
exodus of negroes from the southern
states to South America talks freely
about the scheme He is an active friend
of all movements for the improvement of
the condition of his race He was en
gaged in the first exodus of 1879 He ac
companied Governor Chamberlaintogeth
er with several other young colored men
to South Carolina from Massachu
setts and entered heartily into that
movement This exodus he said
will be effectually pushed and by May
we expect to set our first party on the
road There are no headquarters as vet
The movement is very young less than a
month old so far as active work is con
cerned The headquarters will be estab
lished probably in New York We shall
have three agents in Cincinnati one at
St Louis and one at Chicago I am the
agent at this point We have some of
the best people in the country interested
men who are willing to go down in their
pockets for the relief ot their oppressed
brethren We have some colored people
in this country pretty well fixed and they
are committed to the work There Is no
fixed amount of capital We hope to ac
complish by the txodus first and fore
most protection There is no question
of politics at the bottom although it will
of course have some political bearing
Why do you know that in the last fifteen
years 18000 black people have been
killed in the south for their
political opinions and nothing has
been done to remedy the matter
It is life or death lth us We are tired
ot having Representatives in Congress
upon a voting population that has no
representation There is no remedy so
we propose to pull out The colored
man has developed and made it what it
is and while the laborer could not and
cannot do the work that onr people do
the Southerners will Arid a difference
when they have to use white labor We
have selected South America for a loca
tion because of its climate and adapta
bility of the soil to produce such articles
as the colored people are accustomed to
raising We have lnvestlgated the coun
try and received favorable reports Our
people do not want to come north and
west because of the climatic conditions
and because the prejudice against the
black race follows them even there
In South America as well as in other
parts of the world the color of the skin
does not bar a man out of the race
for the best We shall start our
emigrants from eastern points I
cannot speak any more definitely
now than to say that a Boston line run
niner to Brazil will carry passengers at
14 per tread That certainly is cheap
enough We have agents at work in the
south now and we shall set as many emi
grants as possible out of Mississippi
Louisiana and Alabama while not ne
glecting Missouri and Kentucky and if
there is not a big emigration before next
summer then I miss my guess

ris aged seventy was granted a divorce
at the present session of the Superior
court from his wife to whom he had been
married forty years but with whom
he has not lived for the past
four years She is nearly as old as
he and a large family of children were
the fruits ot their union all of whom
still reside in Sumter county On the
same day that the divorce was granted
Mr Harris went to Macon and was there
married to a lady of that city Rumor
has it that two of his grown sons by his
former marriage were so incensed with the
old man that they set upon and beat hits
terribly There was never a breach of
any kind between the divorced parties
tney merely agreeing to separate at the
time which they did and each going to
live among their children The aged
groom and his blushing bride it is said
have left for Texas where they will re
side In the future while discarded Mrs

of one of her grown sons near this city
A Frlest Discovers a BX lghty Explosive
Chicago Tribune
Rev Father Donahue the Catholic
priest at Cnarleston III has just made a
new discovery that Is far superior to any
that he has yet made He calls itlatoter
quate and in effect it resembles the Rus
sian lectover the most effective explosive
known to science He claims that if
anything it Is far superior and more
deadly It is put up in fuses and is
made from pine gum Mr Donahue has
been appointed a lieutenant in the French
army on account of his previous discov
ery and yesterday he received a gold
medal handsomely engraved from the
Mexican government who desire to
secure his services He claims that with
his last discovery gun powder can be
made more cheaply and the new com
pound will be substituted for It in time
The Care ol the Ears
Health and Home
Never put anything into the ear for the
relief of toothache
Never wear cotton In the ears If they
are discharging pus
Never attempt to apply a poultice to the
Insde of the canal ot tho ear
Never use anything but a syringe and
warm water for clearing the ears from
pu Never strike or box a childs ears this
has been known to rupture the drum and
cause incurable deafness
Never wet the hair if you have any
tendency to deafness wear an oiledsilk
cap when bathing and refrain from bath
Never scratch the ears with anything
bbt the finger tips if they itch Do not
use the head of a pin hairpins pencil
tifs or any thing of that nature
Never let the feet become cold and
damp or sit with the back toward a
window as these things tend to aggra
vate any existing hardness of hearing
Never put milk fat or any oily sub
stance into the ear for the relief of pain
for they soon become rancid and tend to
icclte Itflimmatlon Simple warm wfter
will answer the purpose better than any
thing else
Never be alarmed if a living insect en
ters the ear Pouring warm water Into
the canal will drown it when it will gen
erally come to the surface and can be
easily removed by the fingers A few
puffs of smoke blown into the car will
stupely the insect
Never meddle with the ear if a foreign
body such as a bead button or seed en
tars it leave it absolutely alone but have
a physician attend to it More damage
has been done by injudicious attempts at
the extraction of a foreign body than
could ever come from its presence in the

You know how the thing cameabout
he said today It had its rise mainly in
our vacant lands and in the damaging
drouth reports which had gone abroad
against us I think though that Cali
fornia might be called the spur which
pricked us into motion We know we
had the best country and the cheapest
country and it sort of riled us to see car
load after carload of settlers going
through our territory bound for the Pa
cific slope when they might have stopped
and done so much better That set us to
thinking We knew that If we kept quiet
much longer the age would pass to the
next man and the Dallas convention was
the result The present todays boom
Is the result ot that meeting
We have every reason to be gratified
with our progress so far We have suc

Representative Men Meet at Philadel
phia to Discuss the Necessity ot
Revenue Reform
Breckinridge ot Kentucky Orator Letters
of Kegret from Speaker Carlisle Hugh
McOnllcch and Others
Philadelphia Pa Jan 27 The
tariff meeting which was held at the
Academy of Music this evening To en
force andindorse the recommendation
of President Arlhur and President Cleve
land for revenue reform was onoJ < fl lhe
most successful demonstrations of the
character ever held in this city
The Academy was filled to
the top gallery and most of
those pressnt were business men The
meetiLg was called to order by William
W Singerly proprietor of the Phila
delphia Racord Mr Singerly introduced
Mr Wlson Welsh of the Commercial
Exchange as president of the
meeting ExSecretary of State Will
lam S Stenger was elected secre
tary and 250 business men who signed
the call for the meeting were constituted
vicepresidents Uoon the stage were
over 200 well known Philadelphia citizens
of both parties among them exGovernor
Henry M Hoyt and his successor ex
Governor Pattlson The audience was
attentive and enthusiastic throughout
but the feature of the evening
was a splendid ovation given to
Congressman Breckinridge cf Kentucky
Mr Breckinridge had left the stage be
fore the first burst of applause wblch
followed the conclusion of his peroration
but was compelled to return by the cheer
ing audience which fairly shouted itself
hoarse until he stepped again to the foot
lights With a voice full of emotion Mr
Breckinridge thanked the audience for so
unexpected a greeting to one who was
almost a stranger to a Philadelphia
When Mr Welsh assumed the duties of
the Chair he said that the significance of
this demonstration consisted not only in
the assertion ot necessity for tarirl revis
ion and reform but also in the right and
necessity for a fair manly Intelligent dis
enssion of the questions appertaining to it
The American people ore entitled to judge
and know as a result of this discussion
whether those who believe in the magnifi
cent and unequaled resources of their
country and In the ability cf their coun
trymen to develop and utilize those re
sources are less wise and patriotic than
those who contend that we are unable to
compete with the inferior sources and
inferior methods that exist throughout
Europe m almost every particular
Letters of regret from Hugh Mc
Culloch S S Cox Secretary Falrchild
Speaker Carlisle and others were read
Mr McCuiloch said that the question of
tarifi reform was an economical not
political and should be lifted ont ot
politics that the present tariff was a war
measure has served its purpose and
should be carefully revised that the sur
plus which it creates is but
one of its evils that it is prejudicial to
farm interests reducing the foreign de
mand for our products that it stands in
the way of restoring our
shipping interests that it is
antiRepublican fosters monopolies
and violates the constitution being Im
posed on many articles not for revenue
but for protection that what is now
wanted is a tariff for revenue with inci
dental protection O
Hon John G Carlisle after expressing
his regrets added these few word An
early and substantial reduction of taxa
tion is what the country nw most needs
and I hope your meeting will materially
assist in bringing about the result
A letter ot regret was also read from
David A Wells offering congratulations
that the business men of Philadelphia
are beginning to recognize the impor
tance indorsing tbe recommendations
of Presidents Arthur and Cleveland that
forced contributions of labor end prop
erty commonly called taxes not neces
sary for tbe support of the govern
ment should no longer be exacted of
the people by the government also of
vital necessity if we would truly protect
and extend American industry of reliev
ing those things which eannot
be made commonly called
raw materials from tbe burdens
to which the competitive industries of
other countries are not subjected
Congressman Breckinridge then ad
dressed the meeting at length on the
tariff He was frequently applauded and
made an impressive speech
It Disappears by the Carloads A
Town Implicated
Springfield Ohio Jan 26 An ex
tensive and systematic coal steal has
been discovered at Bainbridge Ross
county Ohio a small town on the Ohio
Southern Jtiilrosd A carload of coal
would at times disappear in a single
night and the peculations became so ex
tensive that the railroad company em
ployed detectives to unearth tbe thieves
The result has been the arrest of
fifteen prominent citizens of Bambridge
including the marshal hotel proprietor
and a Presbyterian preacher The detec
tives say that halt the citizens of the
town are implicated in the steal The
peculations amount to many hundreds of
dollars and the extent of them may be
Imagined when it is known that although
the coal is universally used in Bainbridge
not a single carload has been billed to a
resident of that place this winter
The Eyo as a Jleasnrer
All the Tear Bound
There ia a wonderful difference in the
powerwhlch different persons possess of
estimating sizes and distances by the eye
alone It Is a very valuable accomplish
ment when one wants to pick out quickly
an article of proper size
There are however certain influences
which unless guarded against will often
lead one astray as to the real size of an
object The presence of a series of lines
upon an object has a great influence upon
the appearande as regards size To illus
trate this fact Is given the cut showing a
square space divided horizontally by a
series of lines The height and width of
th s space are exactly equal as may be
proved by measurement but to the eye
they appear very unequal

Special to the Gazette
Washington Jan 26 The Demo
crats cf the ways and means committee
have almost completed their tarirl bill
They have raised a point where they are
in perfect agreement and the bill in gen
eral iorm Is completed There remains
now little for them to do bn some mis
sionary work to strengthen the bill
They are advancing in a way that is more
satisfactory than they had hoped for The
U slonary work to be done is simply the
yielding of little points here and there
when they can thus gaining strength for
the bill without making any serious sacri
fice The bill as reported will
put wool on the free list will by way of
compromise make a material reduction
in the tax on tobacco and fruit brandies
and will mate a reduction of 20 per cent
on sugar Salt lumber and otter such
raw materials will
There will be a general revision and
adjustment ot the tariff schedule and the
administrative feature of the bill will be
practically those formerly advanced
by Mr Hewitt At every step they have
consulted expediency to a great extent
and have so managed as to gain strength
in many directions They have
perfect confidence that they will be able
to pass the bill almost as reported An
exception may be made as to the wool
clause After a fight they may compro
mise on this by putting coarse wools only
on the free list if they can gain some
decided advantage by so doing They
appear however to tfalnK that they will
not have to make any change in the bill In
this respect

the property left by Mr Bean the Texas
millionaire to other than the Washington
heirs has created great excitement among
those here who lay claim to a portion of
the Bean estate Samuel H Bacon one
ot the heirs residing in this city does not
believe in the validity of the new will
alleged to have been found any more than
in the will which was formerly produced
and pronounced invalid He said to The
Gazktie correspondent tonight
You see there are a lot of people in
Texas who seem very anxious that
the estate should not go to heirs resid

ing to go to any length to carry their
point The only thing that surprises us
is that tnere have not been more wills
found of the same character as this one
I dont believe in the lea t in its validity
and lt is more than likely that some peo

week or two that strengthens their case
materially and they are confident their
