On historic ground, within the sacred radius of the blood-stained Alamo, is a rudely built speaker's stand. This spot was once wet by ibe blood of heroes, and the orator who stands upon it is ex pected to become inspired, hence it is a favorite place for the erection of speak er's stands and circus bill boards. The stand in question was built in the night, and very few persons know anything about It; some think it means Moody and Sankey without tickets; others, that a fresh invasion of a patent medicine fakir is threatened, and others that it has something to do with the coming city election. To settle all speculations 1 will state, fer 1 know it was intended as the grand stand from which Hi* Honor, the Mayor, was lo review the parade on Washington's birthday, and of course, make a speech. The rain fell and the parade did not take place, nor the speecb. but the "grand" stand, surrounded by a sea of municipal mud. remains faithful to its post—eloquent in Its silence. It Js a dreary outlook, as I view II from the club room wi'dow; the slant ing rain beating down over the uneven surface of the square, worn and scarred by the storms of a century; the little bronze drinking fountain, so ostenta tiously erected in the auti-Brackenridge Water-works days, now a mln serving as a receptacle for file wood used by the tamale vendors, and the aforesaid speaker's stand in front of the Alamo; only a solitarj' back stands out in the riitiless storm; how bleak, bare and for ildding the scene seemed as 1 gazed out of the window of the comfortable club room. I mentally contrasted the ele gant appointments which surrounded me, and the muddy waste below —with out a tree, a grass tuft, or a graveled walk—nothing but mud puddles, a broken fountain, and the stand, with its unpainted rough plank, in sight! I thought if only our citizens were as par ticular abeut their outdoor comfort and appearances as they are indoors, what a change there would be in the aspect from the club room window. My elegant friend, C. B. (champion of the widow) handed me a Habana. the only variety we club men smoke, and 1 sat and smoked and mused on the cheer less prospect from the window, and my own comfort. What a gay old time the}’ must have had on Washington’s birth day, after all—l mean the ghosts of the heroes of the Alamo; Washington, of course, held a reception, a sort of club affair. the stand being utilized for the occasion. Davy Crockett remarked as he was presented to the f. o. h. c.: "Be sure you’re right then go ahead.’’ Washington bowed a dignified as sent to the proposition, as much as to say, that was always my motto, but I never said so, "cannot tell a lie." Travis drew his chalk line for all those to cross who wanted to run away, and Bowie held bis toothpick between bls teeth, ready to spring upon the foe. These were the world’s heroes after all —they died, uninspired with a selfish motive, for the cause of liberty and civ ilization. Let those who live in pleasant homes within the shadow of the Alamo throw aside their selfish aims and do something to redeem the ugliness of our public squares. "Casino,” remarked my noble friend, "what will you take?” anil 1 realized that I was almost dreaming. IIKIO. Editor San Antonio Light Our honorable Mayor, Bryan Cal laghan, is a native of our city, and the youngest man who has yet filled the office. His elevation to this position is evidently a misfortune to him, which he will some day fully realize, if he does not to do so already. Inexperienced in public life, he was suddenly placed in a position requiring experience in public affairs, mature judgment, and business ability. Had be been fortunate enough to have had associated with him a City Council composed of men capable of un derstanding the wants of the commu nity and independent enough to carry out their convictions, our young chief executive would have found his path much smoother, for the reason that bis inexperience would not have been taken advantage of and his lack of business capacity made conspicuous. Nominated by a convention calling itself Demo cratic, Mr. Callaghan has to confess that his election was due largely to the help be received from Republicans, who looked upon the contest as between two Democrats—one ratber old and "moHs backy," the other ratber young and green. Once in office Mr. Callaghan discovers that be must either surrender to his enemies or entrench hie friends behind tbe city patronage. He chose the latter course,and hence we find that the Mexican population gets the lion's share of the city offices. Now who can blame him; he has no hope of making an administration that will commend itself to the people at large; his Council, taken as a whole, Is far below the mark; while It is bursting with ambitious de signs upon the throne Itself. There are two, and possibly more, open candidates for the Mayoralty in this body, and not one of them who does not eye the Mayor on hl* seat with an Inward conviction, "I would look bigger in his place!" His predecessor sits in the Council after ten years’ experience in handling Alder manic material and manipulating the po litical machine, his covert enemy and open opponent upon all matters of muni cipal controversy. Callaghan’s failure is tbe chief stock in trade for tbe ambi tious designs of these plotting Council men; they hope to climb to power over his mistakes and failures. When the Mayor glances around the Board he can not sincerely say be sees a single friend ly face; he knows that for policy sake he is courted and tolerated, but that his mistakesand bis growing unpopularity are eagerly made tbe most of by his co laborers in the city vineyard. And thus it comes to pass that a young gentleman of fair ability, of a generous and open nature, of strict Integrity, and unques tioned courage, elevated to an ’mport ant nubile trust, finds bis term of office coming to a close stamped as a failure, when In fact, compared with the last term of bis predecessor, it will bear favorable criticism.

NONSTOCK, Richmond, Va„ February 25.- Both branches of the State Legislature vester day passed a local option law. —The most popular cigarettes are the Opera Puffs at popular price. 4-7-ly SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26. 1886. SILENT, BUT ELOQUENT. A Plea for Our Mayor. Local Option Law. Bank Failure. Special Telegram to tbe Light Houston, February 2.—The Houston Savings Bank failed to open Its doors this morning at the usual hour, causing great excitement among citizens anu business men generally. Developments show that a petition was tiled last night fora receiver, which was granted. Dr. D. F. Stuart being appointed, and that several heavy depositors drew their money yesterday. When tbe City Bank failed last December a heavy run was made on the Savings Bank, but they met the run successfully. Tbe officers of tbe late City Bank are the principal officers of the Savings Bank. It is estimated the deposits amount to $250,000. A Very Bad Man. Mhmpiiis Tenn.. February 25.—An Avalanche special from Springfield, Mo., sny*: Tbe greatest excitement prevails over tbe discovery of a foul i urder com mitted last September. George Graham is the suspected party. His victim was bis wife, who came from Fort Wayne, Ind., via St. Louis, to meet him at Springfield. He left Springtield with her and his two children on September 21), but returned two days afterwards alone. Nothing more was seen of Mrs. Qrabam The children, however, were seen on his farm near Brookline, seven miles from here. He told a lady with whom his wife stopped that she was not the mother of the children, but their aunt. Graham had been divorced from his wife, owing to ids imprisonment in the penitentiary in Indiana for horse stealing. On hi* release, lie again wed ded her and removed to Kansas. Treat ing her badly caused a separation, and she went home to her people in In diana. Graham then went to Spring- Held and married lhe niece of Mr*. Mallar, the great temperance woman. He lived with Mrs. Gra ham No. 2 tor a year, when liis where abouts became known to Mrs. Graham No. 1. and be met her in St. Louis before bringing her to springtield. The long absence from her home at Fort Wayne of Mrs. Graham, No. 1 caused uneasi ness among her relatives, and her brother-in-law, Mr. Breeze, after w riting many letters to people of this city, came to Springtield, and though failing to find her, had Graham arrested for bigamy and he is now in jail. This was in the earlv part of last month. Here matters rested, but detectives of St. Louis, and Davis and While, of Springtield. began tlie trace which to-day resulted in find ing the body of the missing woman, naked in a dry well 50 feet deep, near Brookline. A bullet hole was found In her right breast, which hart perforated her corset The coroner has gone to tbe scene of the crime, and if identilication of the remains is satisfactory, Graham will be lynched and thus will end the career of a horse-thief, bigamist and murderer. The Labor Situation Co.xnki.lsvili.k, Fa., February 25.— Socialistic Hungarians caused more trou ble in the coke regions this morning. A crowd of them assembled at Broadford and marched to Semmit, on the Mount Pleasant branch, forcing every coke drawer from work along the route. They were nearly all armed and tired numer ous shots in order to intimidate tbe workers. At Summit and other works the coke drawers tied through fear of violence from tbe mob, and in some cases left the scrapers in hot ovens to melt, fearing that if they continued to work the tipple and other buildings at the works would be destroyed. Tbe strikers demand an advance oi 10 cents per oven ins’ead of tbe 10 per cent re cently granted. At Leiseirring. the men requested Superintendent Faggart to discharge a man who bad worked dur ing the strike. This was refused, and the men all struck this morning. The McCormick Strike. Chicago, February 25.—The strikers at McCormick’s reaper factory to the number of about 1000 appeared in tbe vicinity of the works this morning and for the tirst time made a display of vio lence. The foreman of tbe works, named Ward, and the engineer and gas and steam fitter were stopped while on their way to the shops and during a col loquy revolvers were drawn, but no shots were tired. They were afterwards permitted to go to the works. Police Officer Rowan, who had been sent out to the works with a good many other policemen in citizens clothes, to mingle with the crowd and keep order, was ac costed by a workman, who demanded to know what be was doing there. Some words passed and tbe workman, whose name is Ernest Stownan, was arrested and locked up. More police were sent to the scene, but the crowd In a meas ure had dispersed. A Telegram from Socialists. Paris, February 25.—Socialist mem bers of the Chamber of Deputies to-day joined in sending a telegram to '‘British workmen in the House of Commons,” proposing a joint international govern ment in the interest of laboring men. The main objects of the proposition are to secure a reduction in tbe hours of labor; improvement of tbe sanitary con dition of the workshops; proper limit* to work required of woman and minor*, and absolute prohibition against allow ing children of either sex under 14 yean ef age to work at all In shops or fac tories. The telegram suggest* that British workmen join those of France in inviting tbe workmen of America and Europe to send delegates to Congress, to be held next September, in some place to be hereafter designated, for the pur pose of discussing means to "emancipate the workmen of all countries.” Grit. Men of grit are to be admired. Sena tor Mahone, of Virginia, is one of them. Grit has won him all his victories. He weighs only 100 pounds, but 95 of that is solid backbone. If there is anything in God Almighty's world that I despise it is a man with a little, old, cotton string for a backbone, with a couple of ribs sewed to It.—[Sam Sones. Deaths.

Wile*, a very pretty young wife of perhaps 28 year*, tall and slender, with a little hand and foot and good figure, was seen yesterday after noon by a Light reporter, to whom she told a pitiful story of sorrow and priva tion. As she relates, she is the daughter of wealthy parent*, now living In Day ton, Ohio. She married againat her parents' wishes a handsome young man of that city, who was a tort of ne'er-do well. lie settled down, however, and started in business, keeping bar. Her mother soon became reconciled and presented them with a handsome house and lot. This wm soon sold and squandered by her husband, and they then moved to Texas, settling at Columbus, where he procured work on the railroad and worked for awhile and then they came on to San Antonio. He worked a little here and earned $3O and came home one Saturday night and told her be would give her tome money the next morning to pay the rent. That 1* the last she saw of him, a* he left that night. Since then she and her two chil dren. on* four year* old, the other born (bortly after his departure, have been nearly starving, and would have starved bad it not been for kind friends and charitable ladies discover ing her condition and allievatlng tbe same from time to time with money, provision* and clothing. By tbe aid of correspondence between herself and mother, a reconciliation has at last been effected, and the mother bade her to come home. A ticket was purchased for her and little ones yesterday by these same kind friends, clothing purchased and they left for Ohio this morning nice ly fitted out and happy and rejoicing, g Mrs. Wiles Is an Intelligent woman, very proud, and that is the reason her mouth has been closed ns ;to ber condi tion to her relatives for these many year*. She requested the reporter to thank her kind friends, Mrs. A. H. Ken nedy and others who so nobly assisted her through tbe columns of the Liam, and with tears of gratitude declared she would always bles* their names. C. M. MrD Washington, February 25.—The sub stitute for Mr. Reagan's bill to Incorpo rate the Atlantic and Pacific Ship Rail way Company was reported back to the House to-day.

Paris, February 25.—A new kind of sensation was made in tbe Chamber of Deputies this afternoon. A strange man in one of the galleries excitedly drew a revolver and fired it twice with a downward aim. and then coolly threw a letter toward M. Clemenceau. The man was quickly seized and hurried out by the police. ’ When the excitement bad subsided, a flattened bullet was found at the feet of the President of the Chamber. The prisoner said he was a soldier, who had been so 111 treated by his superiors and ignored bv the officers of justice that he resorted to the desperate expe dient of creating a sensation in the Chamberof Deputies to secure attention to his grievances. Tbe prisoner gave bis name as Horler, and said he was an officer in the Ninth Army Corps. He asserted that the letter which he threw towards M. Clemenceau contained an offer to give the government the names of the betrayers of Metz. Touaka, Kas., February 25.—V arious indications here show that the war re sulting from tbe breaking up of tbe Trans-continental Association is more virulent than ever. Tbe probabilities are that rate* to the Pacitic coast, at least by the SaataFe. will be much low er before they are higher. Travel has considerably fallen off on all lines in ex pectation of this result, and it i* not possiole to say when tbe lowest rate will be reached on the Pacific coast business. Wheeling, W.
