NEW WORLD OF TEXAS;
Subjcct of an Illustrated Lecture b</ a
Well Known Traveler.
When Gilbert McClurg, the trav
eler and visited Waxahach
ie some months ago he staled that
he had in preparation an illustrated
lecture of Texas. This lecture has
been completed and is now being
given by Mr. McClurg in the north
west. He delivered the lecture be
fore the North Dakota state normal
a few nights ago, a report of which
was given in the Times-Record of
that place as follows:
At the state normal last evening

Many beautiful views were shown
projected twenty feet square on
the screen by the stereoptlcon—of
Sait .lose Mission, l.a Purisslma Con
ception and of other time-honored
and artistic buildings at Goliad and
Sait Saba and San Antonio around
which centered much of the romance
and carnage of Texas' early times.
"No hand made straight the path
of the Texas pioneer from the Puit
ed States in the thirties," continued
the speaker. "The Anglo-American,
working out his salvation through
centuries of liberty, regulated by
'aw. with guards of political and
personal freedom, came face to face
with the Spanish colonist, inured to
tyrannical and capricious decrees,
giving undivided allegiance to army
and church and state and with rev
oluliyn a panacea for his woes.
"As the Λ m t'lV.'l rt Trrwuuvn. —
17Tt; was ushered In by an attempt
to capture armies, so in Texas the
edict of Santa Anna disarming all
Texans was the pivotal point upon
which turned the opening of the rev
olution against Mexico The world
is familiar with the battle of the
Alamo, when 1S2 Americans wen
besieged by «.000 Mexicans: with
the terrible massacre at Goliad and '
of the vengeance administered upon
Mexicans by Sam Houston at San
•lacinto. w hen ;ix hundred Texans
slew seventeen hundred Mexicans
and routed Santa Anna's army with
the battle cry of 'Remenibei the
Alamo

nature than spring on the Texas
