.BOUND 0VEB JOE E0BEEET,
Gonzales, March 23. Tho exam
ining trial of Cheat Craft. Scth
WadonndCeo Herring for high
way robbery was bold yesterday
before Justico D B Shoelu at the
court houso. On tho evening of
March 17, 1895, as young Herring
and Whiteside were returning from
a social call at Iiolmont, at about
12 o'clock at night, the buggy was
slopped by two masked men with
sixshooters. and Whitesido was re
quested to alight. Upon promptly
complyiug ho was relieved of his
valuables, which consisted of ono
dollar in paper inonoy and a Mexi
can dollar, bosldes a few private
papers of no value. Tlio robbors
thon requcstod tho pair to return
toEeiinont, and they disappeared
again in the woods. Tlio next day,
at the insUnce of Whiteside-, the
paities .iboio named wero taken in
custody and returned to Gonzales
to jail. It seems that Whiteiide
had been warned of the intended
lobbcry, and as a result ho left all
his money and valuables at Luling
beforo leaving for llelmont. At tho

Theio wi run great many of stnto
witnesses who wore r.ot examined
yoitcrd'iy, but suitlcient uvodence
was introduced lb induce tho court
to bind tho robbers over to await
tho action of the grand jiuy. Tho
bonds of Craft and Wade wcro fixed
at $1000 e icb and that of Herring
at 11230 Galveston Nona.
Tii oof the above named young
men wero hsro in Shiner during
tho chicken fights last winter and
are well known here.
It is not onlv admitted bv it's competitors, but also proved byiF
npid, success that tho Lone Star liter excels all others.
Speaking of the prico of cottcn
Tuesday set Henry Dryer, Sr., to
talking about old time:. Ho taid:
"When I was a boy I used to
haul cotton to Port Lavaca and sell
it for 1 cents a pound. Tho cost of
tiansportition wa about 3-4 of a
cfnt, and this made the price re
ceived about 3 1-4 cents. Wo used
to mako up paities and take cotton
to the Poit every seassn. About
1877 I had 43 bales on hand and
cotton was 7 1-2 cents. I wont to
Homy Stiunk at Oakvillo and ask
ed him w hat ho thought about the
cotton market and ho said that ho
couldn't adviso mo ono way or the
other. I went back homo and con
cluded to sell. I cot 7 1-2 but had
to delivei it to Weimar. Tho day
after I commenced hauling cotton
rose a cent and kept right on going
up until vheii I dellvored my last
balo il wes selling for 12 1-2 cents.
I lost about a if 1000."
Cotton is an uncertain thing to
deal with. A merchant can mako
or loco $1000 in an hour or two.
Thero was a smallpox ecaro here
Saturday night. A negro had been
sick for several days atthoGilmoro
Houso and Mayor Illohm was call
ed down to investigate the matter.
Hu found tho negro siifforing fiom
a local complaint and thero weie
no grounds for thinking it was
