wife on tho Servla today for New YTork
followed by the blessiups of many Amer
ican visitors to Londonwho have stopped
at the Hotel Metropole The
employes of this establishment
have never been noted for courtesy
to American cuests and this has been
the case during the present season par
ticularly as the Rreat influx ot trans
Atlantlo travelers has made the hotels
feel independent It was reserved for
Col Pepper however to introduce
discipline Tho oolonel aud his wife
came home from the theater one night
this week nnd ilrs Pepper at once jsot
lito an elevator while her husband
stepped up to the desk for his key The
night clerk a particularly
HAUGHTY AND TOMPOUS
person wns talking to nu Englishman
close to the keyboard but though Col
Pepper askod him three or four times for
the key tho clerk pnid not the slightest
attention until he had finished his con
versation Pepper took this calmly
enough but when he got into the eleva
tor the Englishman who had been talk
ing to the clerk said I begyourpar
don sir but I think you really ought to
know why that clerk was eo inattentive
He said to me when you first asked for
your key hes only an American let
him wait The colonels Kentucky
blood suddenly rose to the boiling point
ilo sprang from the elevator and whipped
a bugo pistol from his pocket Come
out from behind that desk ho shouted
to tho clerk come quick come a run
mn nnd tho clerk came nnd became
running likewise perspirinn with terror
His face was asben aud though he was
trying to speak his lips moved like the
jaws of
AX EXPIRING TROUT
nnd no soundcame from them Fifty
peoplo in the great corridors rushed up
to see what was tho matter
Get down on your knees cried
Pepper in an awful voice relapsing iu
the Kentucky vernncular Get down
on rour Unoea or Ill shoot your ears
offThe
The terrified clerk hesitated but a frao
tlon of a second and came down to bis
knees on tho marble floor
Now cried the Kentuckian you
npologize to every American that ever
stayed here for your il d impudence to
people that keep your hotel going
Repeat after me what I say I apol
ogize to nil Americans in London say it
quick 1
I apologize to all Americans in Lon
don stammered the clerk
For nil my previous incivility con
tinued tho colonel sternly
For nil my previous inolvility
faltered the victim
Aud I hereby solemnly promise to
treat all Americans with respect and
consideration hereafter Quick
Bay it
The menial obeyed and Pepper then
allowed him to rise and retire behind his
desk the humblest and
jiosr crestfallen
clerk In any hotel anywhere Then the
colonel showed his pistol to the as
sembled multitude It is one I picked
up in a curiosity shop in Pans for a
friend who has a collection of nncient
tirearms he said and it has not
been loaded for a hundred years nod
the lock is rusted out
Up to date the Metropole clerk has
kept his vow to treat all Americans with
respect and the reverence he manifested
when Col Pepper was about during the
remainder of his stay was touching

Kentuckys Defaulting Treasurer Lo
cated iu Honduras with Burke
He Lives QclMly on a Little Plantation and
Tabes Little Interest In tho Affairs
ot the republic
Special to the Gazette
Kansas City Mo Sept 20 The
rather startling statement was made to
day by an exKentuckian that DIck
Tato Kentuckys defaulting treasurer
is located in Honduras and moreover
that be is Interested with another gentle
man who left his country for his coun
trys good Ma Burke late of Louis
iana and now a creditor to that state for
a good many thousands
Mr Tates daughter Maria who ran
off and married Mr Jumes Martin of
Lexington Ky a few months before
her fathers downfnli and flight has
been living in Kansas City at 500 Wood
ward avenue with Mrs Taylor who
keeps a swell boarding house She and
her husbnnd lived a quiet secluded life
Mr Martin traveling for an Eastern
bouse but making this city bis bead
quarters About two weeks ago they
left the oity very quietly
A short time before tbey left says the
oxKeutuckian who Is authority for this
story there appeared in this city a
traveller who from his appearance
might have come from the ends of the
world He was out ot money and was
dressed in rags He drifted into the
office of the exKentuckian and asked
for enough money to get a meal and a
shave His conversation soon showed that
he too was from Kentucky aud ho said he
was on his way home from Central Amer
ica He had come to Kansas City as ho
kuew people who would heln him He
told a rather interoiting story about
starting out with plenty of money but
fulliuir In with some reckless men at El
Paso be drauk and gambleJ until he was
dead broke
A few days later the same man came
into the office of the man who hud as
sisted him and presented a totally dif
ferent appearauce no was well
dressed cleanshaven nnd looked every
inch a pentlemun He returned the
loan aud remarked that he had
found his friends The two Keutuck
ians began talking over affairs in their
native stnto aud tho conversation
was freqtieutly interrupted by sampiinc
the principle product of the Blue Grass
region The whisky loosened the tongues
of both and iu the conversation the
name of Honest Dick Tate was men
tioned The Kansas cityau remarked
1 wonder where old Dick Tato went
For my part I was always glad he got
nway
By this time his companion was con
siderably tlis worso for liquor and re
marked with drunken gravity I saw
him not more than two weeks ago i
He then went on to tell the following
story He had left Kentucky on a roam
ing tour After six mouths he landed in
Honduras and was there when Muj
Burke arrived He frequently heard of
a rich American who lived quietly on a
little plantation who never seemed to
want anytbiug or to take any interest In
the concerns ot tho republic One day
be saw him and to his astonishment
recognized Dick Tate They had been
well acquainted iu Kentucky Iu a very
short time the two Kentuckians bad re
newed acquaintance aud were on the best
of terms
There was a great deal more to the
story He told of Tates life and suo
cess and incidentally remarked that It
was Tates soninlaw Mr Martin who
bud fitted him out ou his arrival here
The Kansas Cityian did not pay muob at
tention to the story until the next day
when the gentleman returned to bis of
fice and requested that he say nothing
about Tate While strictly sober he re
peated the story He also stated that
Burke aud Tate had business interests to
gether The English syndicate which was
managed by Burke in Houduras had ad
vanced the money to Burke ouly after he
bad shown that he could supply a large
amount This money was furnished by
Kentuckys extreasurer
In this same connection it may be
stated that an agent of the same syudlcate
passed through this city this week on bis
way to Honduras to look after the invest
ments made by Burke as it was be
lieved by the stockholders that the major
bad been tampering with the re
turns

William D Cleveland is a representa

representative Republican both being
citizens of Houston
About four years ago In a casual con
versation 1 Mr Cleveland asked Mr

Democratic party that being the proper
party lu Texas for all good men best
citizens etc etc
Mr Baer replied that tbere was no
necessity of that that it would only be a
few yenrs when Mr Cleveland would
come over to the Republican party Mr
Cleveland asked bow Mr Baer re
plied We will drive the nigger over
into the Demncratio party and then you
Democrats will have to come over to the
Republican which will then be a white
mans party Tou will have to do it for
self protection
Houston is the headquarters ap
parently of the Lily White movement

Success at the Polls Will 5ot be tie End
of tfcc Fight on the Commission
Republican Lily Whites Will Kot Put Out a
Ticket This Fall but ths ConeyDegress
Faction Must Eetlre
Special Correspondence of the Gazette
Austd Tex Sept 20 The political
situation at the capital is quiet at pres
ent all active interest in the campaign
having subsided shortly nfter the state
convention bad adjourned No one
doubts that the ticket will be elected by
an old time majority or that the com
mission amendment will receive a popu
lar indorsement at the polls The fact
that all acquiesce in this result without
regard to the personal wishes of some
who would be glnd to see the commission
foil robs the campaign of the
usual Interest prevalent at such
times It is however by no
means certain that success at the polls
will bo the eud of the fight on the com
mission any more than its indorsement
by tho convention was The knowing
ones think tbey see evidences cropping
out now and then of a determination
nmong the leading amis to prosecute the
Hilit in tho legislature As that body
will be largely in fuvor of the commis
sion as It will be composed ot men
elected upon that Issue and supposed to
bo earnest supporters of il one is puz
zled to kuow how the antis hope to sway
them in the direction of violating the
trust reposed In them by a confiding con
stituency But as there are tricks in all
trades so there nre in law making aud
what cannot bo dono in on open and
straightforward manner is often ac
complished iu a roundabout aud ques
tionable way by working upon human
frailties Whether n very determined
fight on the commission will bo made in
the legislature is merely a question of
conjeoture No hope however is en
tertained by the most sanguine nnti of
defeating It at the polls The Urwitz
Republican manifesto created a tempo
rary political breeze here but it too is
passing away and but little is now
thought or said of it No immediate
or even early result Is oxpected
from it It was something in the nature
of a brutum fulmen and ended only in
the noise it made A prominent Repub
1 can told me today that no lily white
ticket would be put out this full that
while there might be a disposition nmong
some to do so it would not bo wise to
create a deadly schism in the party by
precipitate action of that sort Bolides
said bo did not the lily whites prauti
cally capture the convention when thoy
secured the nomination of Wob Flanagan
and the chairmanship of the state execu
tive committee Tbey nre not in
such a bud plight utter all
They have no urgent cause to
bolt a ticket which they themselves par
ticipated iu making nnd which in some
important particulars If agreenbie to their
tastes Discussing the question fur
ther be said that unless the negro lead
ers abated their high pretensions and
quit their scheme of bagging everything
lu sight tho whites would be com
pelled to exclude them from the pri
maries and take the eutire management
and control of party affairs into their own
bands At present things inside the
party are said he iu a deplorabloshape
and must be corrected If there is to he a
Republican party In Texas White
Republicans cau stand negro
rule no better than Democrats
cau and if the party is to grow is to
become what it should be respectable
houoruble aud such as to lavite the fel
lowship of others not pleased with the
policy of the dominant party then must
it get upon a much higher plane than it
now occupies He assured mo that un
less the CuneyDeGress faction lowered
their pretensions the break would surely
come in two years from now
Austin is laying great store by her
dam nroject and when interrogated ou
the subject the average citizen of the
place nt once brightens up nhd grows
eloquent in praise of the great
scheme Bids for S400000 worth of
bonds will be opened October 15 and t e
award made to the best bidder The
mayor says that the bonds will be sold
anove par and that in his judgment tbey
will co in block to a syndicato Bonds
for the remaining million dollars will be
sold ns the work progresses The con
tract for building the dam will be let on
the same day and work will begin No
vember 1 When built the dam will be
1150 feet long extending from bluff to
bluff and sixty feet high from founda
tion to top It will create oue of the
grandest artificial lakes thirty miles long
in any state Owing to the bluffs
on both sides of the river
not more than 2000 acres
of land will bo covered by the back
water extending upstream that distance
This land the city will pay for although
it Is not very valuable On either side
of tho lake the timber and undergrowth
skirting the waters edge will be all re
moved and the border kept clear In or
der to enhance the natural beauty of so
vast a body of water nnd give It an added
effect Already the mayor said capi
ltalists are purchasing tracts ot land nnd
building sites ou the bluff overlooking the
lake No Rhine or Swiss castles will
look down on a prettier picture than will
the residences perched on the command
ingjhelghts ot tho Colorado rising from 150
to 500 feet above the waters edge
Two years will be given the contractors
to complete tho dam and canal This
latter will start from the gatehouse at
one end of the canal and cut through
solid rock will extend 1000 feet below
the dam and will furnish tho power de
sired for manufacturing and other pur
poses The city will utilize it to furnish
water and electricity for Austin The
city will also erect on it a cotton mil of
its own as a starter to be in readiness to
begin work as soon as the dam is com
pleted The money for this purpose is
being subscribed now After tho city
shall bave used all the power needed for
pumping water and supplying electricity
there will remain water power for lease
to others amounting to 10000 horse
power I should bave stated that the
canal will be 100 feet wide and fifteen
feet deep a heavy volume of water on a
down grade and capable of furnishing
a vast amount of power It is proposed
to lease to those erecting mills along the
canal water power at say 520 per
horse power per annum This figure is
said to be very cheap and presents a
very great Inducement to manufactur
ers who use where the motive power is
steam 120 worth of coal per single
horse power rjer annum This very
reasonable charge for water power con
stitutes the main inducement offered
manufacturers to come to Austin
Whether it will pan out as the Austin
people hope for U only a matter ot con
jecture The people here bare confi
dence enough in it to tax themselves to
the tuae of SI100000 a small circum
stance which shows that they
without nerve at any rate

It tells of apparitions queer

Of spectral torns of ghostly spooks

A tangler too Ive heard it said
In boyhoods days Now that hes dead
Well try on him the puzzlers art
And just for fun take out his heart
The bard has vanished now instead
You see what skulking schoolboys dread

The Gazettes Latest Contract for
Its Subscribers and Agents
A Gold StopWatch SplitSecond HoVse Timer in
Eeinforced Case for 12 and in Oxidized
Silver Case for 7 Something Which
Every Subscriber Should Xnow
and Let His Neighbor Enow
The day of cheap watches has pissed Tho
country is flooded with them The Gazette
abreast with tho times has resolved that every
one of its subscribers shall have placed within
his reach a watch of the best kind made one
that he will be proud to wear and have comfort
in n ing
Tim was when the stopwatch with the split
second hand used for timing hoises on race
tracks cost many hundred dollars and could be
afforded bv only a few Time was when a gold
case of sufficient thickness to protect a watch
was out of the range of possibilities of nearly all
men The decrease in the cost of manufacture
of movements and the invention of three sheet
cases a steel sheet between two sheets of gold
now brings both these within tho means of
manv and almost to the price which i3 charged
bv swindlers for the gold washed imitations
and brass counterfeits of common watches The
genuine gold filled or reinforced ca es
patented and made only by half a dozen manu
facturers ere the same for use and wear as 60lid
gold cases and maybe so considered and treated
Even the costliest watchei on tho market now
have them on account of their greater strength
Five points of interest to subscribers
1 A stop watch sweep second each second
split into fifths for timing horses races etc
2 A gold or silver ca3e the gold case to be
steel reinforced to give strength and durability
Honest metal and no plating with 13 years guar
antee for wear
3 The latest improvements of every kind in
winding settlag opening etc
4 A guarantee ot one year from the maker ot
the movements
5 As beautiful a design as could be made for
subscribers only
These watches are manufactured and guaran
teed by the Manhattan Watch Company of New
York City one of the largest and oldest as well
as best knocvn of the finegrade watches and

THE OXIDIZED SILVER WATCHJ7
Tho face of this watch is precisely the same as
that of the gold watch and the movement is pre
cisely the same Tho difference between ths
two watches is only in the case The latter is
of oxidized silver acid eaten very neat and
quaint
The movement sf the o watches is identical it
is the qnick train with straight line lever es
capemenl with a direct acting hand set that
permits accurate setting and will not allow ths
hands to move out of position while setting In
the sweep second movement the
the secondhand is run direct from tho move
ment train Insuring perfect motion while ths
dial train and hands are ran by a friction pinion
from a slda center This gives all the advant
ages in time keeping qualities of the most deli
cately adjusted and expensive movement

carry it safely through the malls In the box
are directions for setting the hands and regu
lating the watch with the nams ot the person
at the factory who tested and packed it
