The greenback movement is
assuming shape in Grayson

Bays .the greenback men, or as
they, call themselves '"the 2a
tumids," will put out a separate
ticket in Grayson county, und
will t;ike advantage of any want
of harmony "n the Democratic
ranks. They hate signified a
determination to maintain a
separate organization, and have
manifested a poisistont hostility
to the Democratic party. This
is just exactly what might have
been expected ot them. It
seems that the Donisun and
Sherman grectibackers are the
first to take off tho mask. The
others will speedily follow suit.
It bthooves every true Demo
crat to stick tho closer to his

we think the Sun will find
itself grievonsly mistaken. The
greenbackers, under the manip
ulation of Brick Pomcroy and
kindred spirits, are duing their
utmost to disrupt the Demo
cratic party in this country.
If they can accomplish nothing
sooner, they will, undoubtedly,
put a ticket iu the field for the
Presidential election in 18S0.
Just exactly what they want to

Hok; G. Schleicher writes to
the San Antonio JOcpreta to say
-that the JKand silver bill wiFl
not bring any relief to the coun

limited; the silver dollar is a le
gal tender and says Mr. Schlei
cher, every one of them will bo
bought np and paid tor enstom
dues; paid out by the govern
ment, and again be bought up
and paid for customs; thus keep
ing the dollar moving in a circle
and out of the hands ot the pec,
pie. lie also.says: "Yon must
therefore not look for ranch re
lief now, even if that utall
coinage ranges, at
pretty high fignres." The let
ter concludes: "I hopo wo will
get np a true silver bill yet,
based upon correct principles
and then you will find me its
strong supporter."

Tho question ot abrogating
the two thirds rule at the com
ing Democratic State conven
tion is still being discussed by
the State pre?s. Some few
papers favor it on the ground
that it has been n time honored
custom with the party. The
custom is very'liku that of go
ing to mill -with halt a bushel ot
corn in one end ot tho suck and
a stune in the other to balance
it. The time has evidently
passed when the two-thirds rule
should govern the action ot
conventions. The Democratic
doctrine that the majority rules
should be snbstitutod. A man
may be the choice ot a majority
oi the convention, and yet be
defeated by a very small minor
ity, who persistently refuse to"
vote with tho majority. Br
this means a popular candidate
may be defeated because ot his
inability to obtain the requisite
two-thirds vote. The Waco
Telephone and the Ruik Ob
terver, both sound Democratic
papers, say emphatically that
the necessity for tho two-thirds
rule has passed, and that the
first choice -ot the convention,
as expressed by tho majority
vote, should be the candidate
for Governor. It rests with the
convention itself to say whether
or not the two-thirds rule shall

A special dispatch from
Charleston, S. C, to New York,
says the sailing ship Azor lus
left Boston tor the former city
loaded with provisions, farming
ntenidls, drygood. boots, shoes,
etc, the proierty of colored
people intending to take passage
for Liberia. Three hundred
and fifty men, women and chil
dren are quartered in Charles
ton nwai.ing their departure.
Thus, it 6eems the movement is
taking a tangible shape. TJioae
that aro.going consist of inde
pendent small farmers who havci
acquired the mentis by selling
out at a sacrifice and having
means to support themselves in
Liberia for six monts. It is
stated that fully one-half ol the
negroes In South Carolina are
anxiouato migrate,, and would
go it they had the means. A
stock company has been organ
ized. Every stockholder is en

are 30,000 shares, which sell at

35,000 colored people in the
South have invented in the en
terprise. TnE Dallas Commercial calls
attention to the defective col
lection laws of Texas. It cities
an instance in which two large
capitalists from Maryland who
visited the State with the in
tcntion of loaning money, and
after a couple of day investi
gation arrived at, tlie concln-
lion that they could not trust
their money on nny securities
which could be given. Until
the laws are amended capital
ists from other States will not
invest their money The Com
mercial says; "As long as money
cannot find security which will
stand the strain of legal pro
ceedings, it will not come here.

a dense ns that ot one bad South
China. Famines and civil wars
have greatly depleted tlie
popnlntiou, yet in the stricken
district there is still twice as
many people as there are in the
United States. Formerly the
dificicnces of Northern China
were supplied from tho Sonth
by way ot the grtnt canal, ex
tendingl650 miles trom Soochow
to Tientsin, on the Peiho, near,
Pekm. For a thonsand years
this was tho greatest artery of
commerce in the world: but it
!ot its feeders, and became tor
the most unnavigable, when the
Yangtse-Kiang shifted its chan
nels and found a new outlet
three hundred miles north ot
its old one.
Thus cut oft from its only source
ot relief in case of tailing crops,
with scanty means of internal
communication, and subject to a
government that has not the
energy to combat so dire an
evil, even if it had the power,
the stricken region nuut bear its
nffection as bet it may.
The Chinese government is
opjwsed to railroads and has
torn up the first and only line
of railway in that conntry.

Last Sunday tho .New York
Herald printed sixty columns
of advertisements. In referring
to tho fact tho Hvrald does not
consider th's an tvidenco of
good times or of reviving proi--
pentv, but ot the importance ot
making special efforts to do
business in a dull time. The
man who refuses to advertise
his business because business is
dnl! docs not understand the
real object and value of adver
tising. If times aro haid and
business goes slowly then it
must be pushed and urged, and
forced to go by advertising.
