It is easily thrown Into the wild est enthusiasm or deep despondency and panic, and is constantly alternating be tween these two conditions. An apt example of this can be cited in the re cent sporadic outbreak of small-pox in this city, tales of the;wildest description were circulated, creating a panic in the public mind and tending to injure the commercial interests of the city to no small extent. Although the small-pox is now comparatively a thing of the past, yet there is a morbid element who tind pleasure in making mysterious statements with *' grUn/Bclight calcu lated to impress their listeners that the small-pox exists to a far greater ex tent than the city authorities would have them believe. I’o ut terly confound these miserable ami despicable circulation of falsehoods A Light reporter was detailed to In vestigate the subject thoroughly and to persoaally visit all the cases and ascer tain the exact extent of outbreak in pursuance of this he visited the City Physician, and obtained from him as a preliminary step a complete list of cases that bad occurred. Following are the names of the sutterers from the tirst an nouncement of the outbreak, which oc curred on January 2: January 2.—Mariana Gomez, Seeun dino Martinez,Gregorio Espinosa, Doro tea Espinosa. January 4.—. Maria Inez Rodriguez. January s.—Mandy .Scott, colored January 13 Jose Montez. January 15- Antonio Espinoza. January 16.— Bud Franks, Damain Gomez. January 18. — Rachael .Scott, colored January 20—J. H. Landram. January 29.—Doniciana .Medina. February L—Carrie Franks. February 3. —Meliton Castile. February s.—Jesttsa Ramirez. Doni ciano Ramirez. February 6.—Margarita Castile. Wm Henthorne. The atiove eases comprise all that have been treated in the pest house. The outside cases have been most pre valent at Beanville. but at present all are entirely well, and no new eases nave been found, 'Hie Beanvillecases were as follows: January 4 — Santa Gerera, Julia Ge rera. Celestine Gerera, Rosa Gerera. January IL—Portiro Sanchez. January 13.—Marco Saiz. January 15.—Maggie Connor. January 16.—Francisco del Castile . January 17.—Teresa Mendoza. January 18 —Pablo Gonzales. February 7.—Joseph Piper. On January 16 the case of Dr. Light hall. the Diamond King, at the corner of Nacogdoches and East Houston streets, was reported. January 20.—Refugio Camuinio, on Guadalupe street. January 18.—EstafanaGalan, on Carr's Hill. January 16.—Emma McClintock and Nelly McClintock, opposite pest-house. January 16.- Ramon Ganuisuaya, on Carr's Hill; E. Jenull, in the Fourth Ward; Emily, Alma and Charlie Risebe, in the Third Ward. February B.—Anastacio Falan and Li berio Polanco, on Carr's Hill. These are all the cases to date, 11 of the above list succumbing to the disease, giving a mortality of 23} per cent., and this, considering that the best authori ties place the rate of mortality at 50 per cent, is very low. Stringent sanitary measures were enforced and perfect isolation has been maintained. After obtaining these names and data, the Light reporter, accompanied by Mayor Callaghan and City Physician Braunnagel "started on the main object of their mission, viz . to visit the pest house and other points where small pox had broken out. Proceeding to Monterey street, about a mile and a half from Main plaza, the pest bouse was reached. This institu tion is a substantial frame building thorougly well plastered, and contains three large airy and comfortable cham bers; the first of which is the male ward, the second the female and children's ward, and the third is the kitchen and nurse's room. There is also a smaller room to which bad cases of delirium that might disturb the other patients are removed. These wards are kept beautifully clean and warmed by stoves to a comfortable temperature. The bedding and general accommodations are all excellent, and the whole is placed under the general supervision of Sisters St. Claude and St. Claire, two experienced and trained nurses. At the time of the visit all the patients were quite convalescent and evidently grate ful for the treatment they bad received at the hands of. the City Physician, nurses and Mayor. The Light reporter interviewed all the patients, (eight in all, who were all in more or less advanced stages of con valescence, and none of the cases ap peared to have been very virulent with tbe exception of Bud Franks and W. H. Henthorne, tbe steward of the deceased Diamond King’s camp. Leaving tbe pest-house, the Fourth Ward was visited and Jenull, the sani tary officer, was the next patient seen. He was found to be out of bed and fat and hearty, the disease in bls case being of a very mild character. From Jenull's house the final cases were visited. These were in the Third Ward, at the house of .Mr. Ed Rische. Here bls two little daughters were found to be stricken down with tbe malady, and also one of his sons, all however were progressing sat isfactorily, and it was only a matter of a few days before quarantine could be safely raised. THUS ZOFFS A. HAMPEL RO3ERT H HUNSTOCK The main object In view in publishing this bald statement of facts is to relieve and disperse any false impression on the nubile mind that the disease is anything like epidemic ; no new cases have been reported, and It is highly improbable that any more instances will be heard of, and San Antonio may congratulate herself on the fact that the small-pox outbreak of 1886 has been promptly stamped out of existence by the ener getic action of Dr. Braunnagel and Mayor Callaghan, who has personally and continually assisted the city physi cian in his labors.

And They Cut Down a Noble Shade Tree. t'ouimunieaied It Is not altogether in the larger af fairs of municipal government that a city administration shows its fitness to take care of the comfort, health and prosperity of the community; tlie small things make up the great bulk of the business of municipal affairs, and it is in this direction that intelligence, good senseand warm sympathy with the peo ple are requisite for success. A recent occurrence which came under my eye convinced me that the present city gov ernment is not well balanced, and quite irresponsible in its acts. On Thursday looming the residents of North Flores street, near the intersection of Belvin street, were startled by tbe appearance a party of city executioners; one carried a keen bladed ax, and the other drove a carl; the cry went up: “They have come to cut down that splendid tree and the man with tbe ax stood eyeing the symmetrical proportions of a shade tree that stood at the intersection of the two streets, parting the roadway of North and South Flores street. Families stood on their thresholds protesting; passers-by stopped to comment freely upon the wanton outrage, and a general expression of opposition came from all quarters. Tbe axman felt his heart sink as he prepared for the execu tion, but he said lie bad no option tie must obey his “boss,” the Street Loiu missioner. A resident of the street called on the Street Commissioner and asked upon whose authority this destruction of the tree was ordered. At first he re plied he was responsible for it. Then, upon an earnest protest that it was an unnecessary destruction of a tin* shade tree, he remarked that Mayor Callaghan had ordered all the trees interfering with the gas lights to be cut down, amt that tree bad to go. The two execu tioners were visited by the Street Com missioner's “foreman," and the people who stood about were informed that tbe order was to cut it down and take It to the "bat cave.” The work ofdestructieii was completed. Thia splendid tree, one of the finest on this sylvan-shaded street, bad stood for a quarter of a century or more, a blessing and a pleasure to the world; its mighty arms bad played with a thousand storms; its graceful shade bad been sought by man and brute through out many summers; it was the favorite resting spot for the tired teamster, while hundreds of children had loitered be neath it daily; it gave a pleasant and comfortable look to the surrounding cottages; but it stood in the way of the city administration, ana His Honor, tlie Mayor, gave a magnificent wave of bis iiand to his burly Street Commissioner to cut down the trees, and tbe Sheet Commissioner waved to his “foreman,” and the “foreman” tn turn ordered the tree to be cut down and hauled like a malefactor to the "bat cave.” “It is the first time such a thing has been done without action of tbe City Council” remarked one citizen. "Have we a City Council?” asked another citi zen. Well, of course, we have a legal quorum of that body, but with what contempt would they entertain a com plaint about the cutting down of ashade tree! The magnificent gentleman who represents Florea street is too much oc cupied with his success in proving to the public that his management of tbe city finances in taking the trust funds to pay otl current expenses was a brilliant bit of management, whicb his successor seems to be unable to comprehend ; it was evidently a mis take that the name of our ex-Mayor was not placed in Cleveland's grab bag for a big place in the Treasury Department. What would he care for the Flores street hackberry? And tbe ambitious gentle man from tbe Third Ward for instance, who has always had his eye on the Mayor's seat, would regard the falling of a fly into a toddy he happened to be stirring a greater misfortune than tbe felling of tbe Flores street hackberry! Then how little sympathy can we ex pect ;from that wise ;and ambitious body, tbe City Council. Upon business streets it has become necessary in large cities to compel the removal of all hanging signs in order to prevent the miscellaneous obstruction of the highway, but upon residence streets the planting of trees has become a part of tbe city work. How is it in our city ? Our business streets are obstructed from sidewalk to roofs with all manner of stands and signs—even signs are swing ing across tbe streets; our squares are made the nightly scene of tbe rudest and most unsightly cooking and eating business tolerated in any civilized city. Our city officials can find plenty to do in removing street obstructions in the busi ness part of the city instead of making firewood of the shade trees in onr resi dence streets. Mayor Callaghan and his Street Com missioner have cut a deep scar in tbe sky on North Florea street which will not be obliterated very soon. DRfin. An Appropriate Present. A few weeks ago, while on a visit to the Laureles ranch, in Nueces county, Messrs. Edwin E. Wilson, of Kansas City, and A. W. Gifford, of tbe Light, killed a very tine, large specimen of Mexican bald eagle, which was brought to this city and stuffed. For the past few days It has been on exhibition in tbe Light office show window, but was to day sent by express to the City of Mex ico to Sr. General Don Pedro Hinojoso, Minister of War of the Republic of Mex ico, as a testimony of tbe high regard in which General Hinojoso is held by the above gentlemen. It is all the more appropriate coming from the Laureles ranch, which was formerly tbe property of the father of General Hinojoso. This specimen was one of tbe finest ever cap tured of that rare and noble bird. Found at Last. John Howarth, an employee of the Southern Pacific Railroad, who resides at Langtry, some time ago went hunting with a party of friends on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande, and during this time be separated from his companions, and they, despite their searching, were compelled to return without him. Tbe has at length been discov ered at ex-Governor Pacbico's ranch, where he has been regaining his strength. Ho wandered 125 miles from the railroad, and baa been lost a month, during which time he was 13 days with out eating and three days without water, and when finally found by the employees of Governor Pachico ranch was an a most nuCe and In a dying condi tion. —Tbe only cigarettes which Jo not •tlok to the lips are Opera Puffr.

Scanlan, the talented Irish man, will appear at Turner Hall shortly in the new Irish drama. "Sbane na- Lawn.” Mr. Auguste Pitou. the man ager for Mr. Scanlan, recently obtained Permission from George W. Childs, of 'hiladelpliia, to photograph the harp used by the poet. Thomas Moore. "The harp, 1 ' said Mr. Pitou, is 21 inches high, and is what is known as the knee instrument. There are only a few of the strings remaining, but at the base is a small bundle of them tied there by the poet with a faded green ribbon. In the days of bis greatest tri umphs, as poet and singer, it went with him to all the homea where he was so heartily welcomed. A broad band of green silk is fastened to the back, and was used to put over the poet's shoul der while he played. The instrument is dark-green, and about tbe edges is a piece of gold inlaid work representing the shamrock. After obtaiuing Mr. Child's permission, 1 took the harp to F. Gutekunst and had two sizes of the photographs made. The larger will be distributed by Mr. Scanlan to clubs and societies, while tbe smaller size will be given away as a souvenir of the play. Shane na-Lawn. It wasexpressly stated by the owner of the harp that no copies of the photograph were to be sold, and it will be copyrighted. On the top of tbe Instrument is a brass plate, on which is inscribed: “F. Egan, 50 Dawson street, Dublin, harpmaker, by special appointment, to His Majesty George IV., and to the royal family.” In tbe upper left hand corner are tbe arms of George IV. Mr. Scanlan, in speaking of the harp, said: “It is of great interest to all Irishmen, as well as all admirers of tbe poet Moore, to have a picture of his own instrument, and it is to this end that we have worked so hard to give those who come to see our Irish play something to remind them of Ireland's greatest poet.” A large and handsome photograph of the harp will be presented by Mr. Scanlan to any Irish society, to be hung in its lodge room, whose officers shall make application for the same In writing. Monday is Washington’s birthday. There will be a grand parade in the morning of tbe military societies, fire men, companies, etc., divers balls in the evening and a grand drill by tbe San Antonio Rifles at Turner Hali.

A Western Monopoly. Umi ago. February 19.—Samuel W. Allarton. a prominent shipper of live stock, addressed a long communication to tbe local press to-day, taking issue with the dressed beef shippers for ob jecting to the new east bound freight laritf. Ha says the trunk line roads have found, under the rates In force the past year, that the three great firms interest ed in the dressed beef trade, Armour. Swift and Hammosd. have been grow ing io such an extent at the expense of tbe live cattle industry, that it was only a question of time when they would not only control the railroads, but producers and consumers of beef as well Allerton maintains that if live cattle ehipnera were thus allowed to be driven out of business, the trio named would have a monopoly greater than the Standard Oil Company. No man, be asserts, could compete with them, unless backed by millions, as they would conspire to un dersell him at any point he might select as a market.
