THIS PAPER; Monday, January 25. 1886, : ski a The Dallas City < ouneil has passed an ordinance against variety theatres with ‘•lady” waiters. Ths: Blanco Star-Vindicator advocatea Lieutenant Governor I. .1. Storey, of Lockhart, as a man eminently tilted to be Governor of Texas. Tue “most unkindest cut of all ' to the Democratic heart is the suggestion to run Mr. Cleveland as the Republican nominee for President in The Lioiti has as yet no candidate for Governor, but it is willing to het Its old papers that no member of the Land Board will be the next Governor. Tub Dalias limes doubts whether Dallas will be able to raise the amount required by the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe. as a bonus to build eastward of that city. Ose of the improvements of the pres ent city administration was to buy an expensive steam street roller, which with its engineer is much like keeping ahorse without using it. being all ex pense and no profit. The Pleasanton Monitor very truly says: “When San Antonio gets her mammoth opera house completed, she will draw the theatre-goer from many surrounding towns, for then first-class artists will visit that metropolitan burg." The evangelist. Moody will visit Texas the latter part of next month, but he has not yet determined whether he will visit San Antonio or not. He can rest assured that he will be given respectful attention, in case he does come. San Antonie is not quite so bad as Dixie Williams said. The Houston Post says: ■•The Sax Antonio Evening Light, one of the very best afternoon papers in the State, be gan its sixth volume on the 20th instant. The Post congratulates the Light on its most eminent success, and congratu lates the people of San Antonio on hav ing so excellent a newspaper." The talk about sewers and proper sanitation is simply a waste of words, so long as the city does not own the water-works. It is bad enough to have to pay tribute to the Brackenridge mon opoly on water alone, but to add the sewer tax would indeed be adding bur den upon burden upon the people. The Monterey Revista understands that in consequence of President Cleve land's message on the silver question that Mexican dollars have depreciated 3 cents. It therefore pertinently re marks that with due respect it would see the American President chawed up before he should again speak on the sub ject. San Antonio is one of the largest horse markets in the country, and the business is almost in its infancy. But in this connection it is a matter of con gratulation to know that a number of representatives of large northern and western firms will make this city their headquarters for future operations in that line. The Waco Examiner referring to the purchase of the White Elephant and turning it into a dry goods store, asks whether it is the mark of decay or not. In the opinion of the Examiner the turning of saloons into dry goods stores maybe the sign of decay, but it is the kind of decay that the best citizens of San Antonio hail with pleasure. Dr. Socdper, of the Madison Square Presbyterian Chuich, preached a very eloquent sermon upon the subject of the observance of the Sabbath yesterday, in which he took the grounds that there was no prosperity for a people who made a practice of disregarding the seventh day. But he did not demand that the day should be spent in a puritanical manner, but as a day of rest, with the proper observance of Sunday, ns befitted consistent Christians. —The most popular cigarettes are ths Opera Puffs at popular price. -4-71 y L ihe Grass commissioners do no | other good they fully pay for themselves in the reports that they make.calling at tention to the character of the country ! supposed to be a barren waste, and its agricultural possibilities, which is al ready turning a tide of immigration in | that direction.

( haki.i •- A. Dana, of the New York Sun, remarked the other day that lie be longs to no society, club, or organiza tion of any kind whatever, except the X- .v England Society of New ork, whicli he considers more as an annual alum, r than n organization. "It has been my conviction." lie said, “that the editor of a newspaper should be entirely free from every association of such a character, in order to retain the greatest freedom of action and critical judgment upon passing events." si vi,i\ ot the wild taikofl hiesgo -o I: lists, the • h veland Leader says: The honest workingmen if Chicago repudiate the utterances of the Social ite.

If whisky barrels anil empty bottles could give evidence they would tell a more truthful and instruc tive story." The Laredo Times says; “Contrary to all expectation the late blizzard did* not prove near so destructive to cattle or sheep as was predicted. While Hie blizzard was at its worst some sheep men shuddered at the thought of losing at least a fourth of their Hocks: but sub sequent investigation lias proven the fears to be groundless, as the losses are inconsiderable. The fact is that owing to the rains of the autumn the range was never better, and stock of all kinds entered upon the winter fat. A fat animal can stand the cold; it is tin poor ones that hump up behind the walls with Ilie Fort Worth policemen.” Ihi New York Tribune says: “Ths sudden death of the oldest daughter of the Secretary of State willawaken much vmpathy for her sorrowful parents throughout the I nion. The American people are sharp upon each other in matter- of political opinion and policy, but they are quickly touched with a neighbor's misfortune or Milliction. Th« circumstances of Miss Bayard’s death are peculiarly sad and will add to the grief ot her own and her family's friends. Miss Bayard was a great favorite in Washington society, and her gracious presence will be much missed." Tut-: niceties of the law are beautifully illustrated in the application of Cliff Cook for a new trial. He shot a man down without provocation, and when the jury generously sentenced him to the penitentiary for life, he asks for a new trial on the ground that his victim was killed without malice. It is a little diffi cult to sec why the murder was any less a crime, because the malice and premed itation was only of a few moments growth instead of a larger period. A little more of the old Mosaic law of “an eye for an eye,' etc., in the sentencing of criminals would purify society much bet ter .than tlie legal hairsplitting techni calities which are resorted to now-a daye. “Tui: statement of Earl Carnavon. Lord Lieutenant of Ireland.” says the Washington Critic, “presents a very gloomy outlook for the poorer people ot that country. He declares that Parlia ment will do nothing to relieve the dreadful distress, and that all be can do for the starving people is to use the lim ited means at his disposal for sending the unfortunate to the workhonses, which are already much overcrowded. He hopes for private contributions, however. It would not be a bad idea to divert some of the money subscribed for the relief of Ireland politically to feed ing those of her people who are starving physically. The fund for political relief is a very plethoric one and would not be seriously diminished by cutting off a generous slice te drive away the wolf that is prowling so near the humble cot tages of the peasantry.” "lx i acting about for new schemes which will belter the condition of wage workers," says the Waco Day, “it would be well to consider the great benefits which would be derived from the estab lishment of savings banks under the su pervision of the Postoffice Department. What we need is a system which will induce laboring people to save money. We complain of meager salaries, but al most every man who has constant em ployment earns a little more than is needed to keep him and his dependents in comfort. A hundred years ago when the people complained ot high taxes, old Ben Franklin told them that they taxed themselves twice as much by their idle ness, three times as much by their pride, and tenfold more by their vices. The same is true to-day, especially in the south. We must revise our econ omy, and above all not despise small savings. In Massachusetts, the people have learned this lesson long ago, and to-day they have accumulations boarded amounting to $275,000,000, drawing 3} per cent, interest, in savings banks es tablished for small earnings of wage workers exclusively. Hard times and depression seem to have no effect on these accumulations, as the deposits show a steady increase year by year, and the Massachusetts working people will soon be the most prosperous in the coun try, notwithstanding the “starvation wages" which prevail among them.” — Kv ®*y first-class dealer sells Opera 1 ufls cigarettes.

San Antonio was the principal city of the .Southwest and was known the wide world over before the site of Houston had other inhabitants than the alligators and snakes of Buffalo bayou. A Light Washington correspondent of a recent date, writes: “The opinion that this will be a lively session of Con gress. despite the fact that it opened tamely, prevails among public men of all shades of political opinion. The in coming of a Democratic administration after nearly a quarter of a century's ex clusion from executive power, with the changes it naturally brings in the pub lic offices, and in the policy of govern ment generally, is cited as reason enough to expect animated proceedings in Con gress. As the Republicans retain con trol of the Senate tb»t body is looked to to protect and promote tbe political In terests of that party. Some of tbe brightest men and ablest leaders of the Republican party are in the Senate, and it goes without saying that they will keep a vigilent eye upon their party's interests. * * * Those who are anx iously inquiring why American ship building has fallen away may study witli advantage the statistics of the same Im utry in Great Britain. If there is a country where this branch should Hum ish it is in England. But the figures are almost appalling. In 1883 shipping to the extent of 1,250,000 tons was launched; and in 1884 this total fell to 540.0H0 tons, and from that again in 1885 to 510,000 tons. Nor is this all. For it will be found, on further examination, that so anxious were the yards to secure contracts that what work was done gave little or no profit.” a Gentle Stimulus I- iiupailiil to tin* kidneys au.l bladder bT Hostetler's Stomach Bitters, which is nios’ useful in overeomiUK torpidity of these or gans.
