Coming- Events [on the Stage, and jMiscel laneous Mention. 1 lie arrangements for the appearance of Miss Clara Louise Kellogg’s Company in San Antonio, have been completed. She will appear at an early date. Messrs Baker and Farron will be tbe next attraction at Turner LI all. Mr. Cyril Searle will appear at Turner Hall shortly in Gilbert’s "Sweethearts.” He will play hie original character which was given by him for 120 consec utive nights in New York. Mias Agnes Jenn and a carefully trained company of local talent will support him. A complimentary concert was given to Mra. 1.. F. Deane last evening at the Casino Hall, which, th .ugli poorly at tended, was an enjoyable entertain ment. The duet ’ Hom* ’to our Moun tains,” being espeialiv well rendered]; the solos of Mrs F HertL Mrs. Dr. Favre being aa faultless ns usual. Mr. Mark's violin solo "Souvenir de Haydu” was enthusiastically applauded. and the other members were all highly ap preciated. On Tuesday. March Itltb. “lngomar” will be given at turner Hall by a talented couivany of amateurs from Austin, Texas. “lngomar” will be sustained by Mr. Isaac Melaskey and Mies Lillian Hollingsworth will play "Partbenta.” In this charac ter Miss Hollingsworth has shown such marked histrionic talent that she has re ceived tbe highest encomiums from the press and tbe theatrical profession. As Miss Hollingsworth is a former resident of San Antonio, it is to be hoped she will receive a hearty welcome. * This evening Rev. H. R. Coleman will deliver a lecture on the “Holy Land.” for the benefit of Masonic charities in San Antonio. Miss Emma Abbott intends to revive “Paul and Virginia” on a grand scale next season. Her present season closes on May 28. Bill Nye. and James W. Riley, the Hoosier poet, have joined forces in an entertainment. * Blind Tom, although almost forgotten, still gives concerts, but he seldom, or never, appears in populous centres. Left the Engine. St. Loris, March 12—The only other event of the day worthy of special note was the abandonment of the Washing ton accommodation train. This train runs from here to Washington. 60 miles west, and was hauled off on Tuesday. It was concluded to restore it this even ing, and it started out at 6 o'clock with Engineer Frank Drayer 1n tbe cab and a full load of passengers. Everything went well until it reached Summit Ave nue station. Drayer then left tbeengine and tbe train was soon run back to the Union Depot and the engine taken to the round house. It is said that Grayer’s abandonment of his en gine was voluntary, nobody having solicited him to leave it. ' If this is a fact, it clearly indicates that the engineers have concluded not to run freight trains. The engineers, tire men and brakemen held a meeting thia afternoon, but what they did is not yet known. They will give no information to tbe press. Outside rumor has it that Chief Sargeant, of Chicago, head of tbe Firemen’s Brotherhood, has been sent for. and that he will be here to-morrow to assist tbe men in determining what course they shall pursue in regard to the strike. It is alleged that numerous ap plications for work are being made at different railroad depots, and that the officials feel encouraged that they will be able to employ a good force of men, bi.t no definite information on this point can be obtained. The through passenger traffic of the Missouri Pacific is entirely unobstructed. All their trains leave here promptly and go through on time. The Knights Weakening. Galveston, March 12. —Master Work man Farmer, of District Assembly 78, Knights of Labor, arrived to-day. This completes the District Executive Board, which has convened here to finally settle, one way or tbe other, the troublesome Mallory boycott. The Executive Com mittee held a long interview this after noon with President Sealy, of the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe. and Captain Sawyer, of the Mallory line Tbe situa tion was thorougly canvassed on both sides, and the committee took the mat ter underdose consideration. They held a long session to-nigbt with local assem blies, but it is not believed any final con clusion has been reached and other meetings will be held. The question being considered is the alleged violation of tbe November arbitration agreement and differences between the Knights and the Mallory company seem to pivot upon the double interpretation placed upon that agreement. The local press publish statements tending to confirm the grow ing disaflection among the Knights. There are undoubtedly quite a number of Knights who are protesting at meet ings of the assembly against any steps that will interfere with traffic on the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe road. The determination among Knights to Inaug urate radical measures to enforce the boycott la visibly less apparent to-night than for aeveral weeka. Commissioner’s Statement. St. Lot ts, March 12.—A apeoial from Sedalia to the Globe-Democrat, says that an effort was made there to-day to send out a freight train, but it was frustrated by Engineer Paul Smith and Fireman Robert Myers leaving tbe engine at tbe request of tbe Knlghta of Labor. Shortly afterwards Engineer Perry and several of the strikers seized tbe engine, ran down the track and drew its fire. It waa then returned to the round-house. State Labor Commissioner Kachtltzky was in the city to-day and witnessed this performance, which he announced as an act of violence. He also aaid: “I came here to investigate matters. I met Superintendent Sibley and the Execu tive Committee of the Knights of Labor thia morning, and shall confer to night with a number of employes of the com pany who have suspended work, but are opposed to the strike. I leave for Jef ferson to-night, and shall probably go to St. Ixiuis to-morrow. Ido not care to express myself on the situation, beyond saying that I think the strike uncalled for. I shall submit my report to Gover nor Marmaduke, and be can take anch action as he may deem proper.” —Tbe most popular cigarettes are tbe Opera Puffs at popular price. 4-7-ly ABOUT THE STREETS. The City Should put Down the Curbs and Make Sidewalks Possible. Editor San Antonio Light.’ San Antonio, March 12.—1 n my rami fications through the city to-day. 1 have been accosted frequently and ap plauded tor opening up the curb ques tion, and "go ahead give us more light on the subject, was the universal request. The curb to some people may be of but little moment, but I can tell them it is of vast Importance to the City of San Antonio. It Is not very pleasant to make a sidewalk without a curb, still it can be done. It we intend to make this city as famous as the name It bears, "the Alamo City,” we must have good sidewalks and plenty of them. No city In the world has better natural facilities than San Antonio- Ift he same vim that was demonstrated during the French administration had been con tinued under tbe present administration, ban Antonio would to-day have been second to no city in the I nion for street improvements. The many capitalists and invalids that come to enjoy this salubrious climate, would be in creased tenfold did our street* and avenues have continuous sidewalks where they could promenade and inhale the invigorating breezes and see the gardens with the blooming rose and green sward in the winter months, where but a few days before they left their native hills in’ the North, covered with sleet and snow. Although this is somewhat apart from my subject. It can not be denied that San Antonio and its neighborhood cannot be equaled in the werld for consumptive pa tients and to those who are pre disposed and only in tbe first •tag-, in nine cases out of ten they will get well. We have ample proof in our midst to corroborate this statement, such being tho case, tbe duty of this ad ministration is to keep up with the times and follow up our street improve ments into the suburbs, and follow the laborers into the brush, where economy and necessity compels him to seek a re treat adequate to his limited means. The laborer may be passed by, and even despised by the avaricious politician, but on election day his vote counts one If there is such a think as retribution in the vocabulary, then those faithful working men who pay taxes and have families to support, and who are anxious ly waiting at the corners of our streets each day for something to do to keep their families from starving, will cer tainly have an opportunity of showing their manhood on election day. Toddy mixers and cock-fighters must not be admitted into the administration, rea sonable pay and short hours, and a Sun day rest. This is indespensable for a free people. This can all tie done in peace and order, and nobody hurt. Get up a good street and sidewalk ordinance, and put everybody to work, and we will soon make San Antonio what she ought to be. If the present city administration don't fill tbe bill, let them drop out and put in men who will, irrespective of party or politics and all trivial law-breakers, put them to work on the streets to clean the mud off even if it should be the presi dent of any. association. Boycott Resolutions Sacramento, Cal., March 12.—The platform presented to the anti-Chinese Convention, which assembled at 11 o'clock this morning, demands that tbe Government of the United States take immediate steps to prohibit absolutely Chinese invasion, and appeals to people all over the country to supplant Chinese with white labor in all instances where the former are employed. The resolu tions declared that the convention was not in favor of any unlawful methods in getting rid of the Chinese, but pro nounced in favor of boycotting any per sons who employ Chinese, directly’or in directly, or who purchase the products of Chinese labor. Discussion on the boycott clause continued up to 1 p. m., when, amid tremendous cheering, the platform as presented was adopted. Ex- Senator Sargent, who had strongly op posed the boycett clause, informed the Chairman of bis withdrawal from the convention. — ♦ • To Strikers.

I have read the contributions of “Blunt” in tliv Light, and it appears to me that his suggestion that the sewer proposition be carried out in advance of securing control of the water-works is ' rather chimerical. What Is the use of our people bulldiag an expensive system of Sewerage without first settling the question of a walersnpply to make these sewers of practical advantage. Why j should we build a water works system when be have one already? Mr. Brackenridge may own tbe water works. but he could not de so unless tbe i control of the city Is acknowledged over the water supply. Tills Is a legal ques tion and should be first tested before going further. “Blunt” in a late article seems to ' have changed front and now advises the [ defeat of the sewers because the "sewer farm” plan was adopted. But it don't change the water question First, let the city bring Colonel Brackenridge to terms before it embarks in a water works or sewerage enterprise of its own. The city is paying $20,000 annually for tire hydrants, and poor ones at that, and which are not very ornamental especi ally when placed oa a narrow sidewalk. The Water-works Company should agree to flush the sewers free of charge for at least 10 years before the city should place itself at its mercy by building sew ers. “Blunt” also makes a drive at our Hon. Mayor and I Ity Council. These gentlemen represent our citizens. They are chosen as tbe expo nents of the best Interests of our city. They have been elected at the polls by a fair vote. They are supposed to be morally and intellectually the reflex of the community. To reflect on the Mayor and Council seems to me to reflect on file people at large, fora time at least. 'To condemn them is to condemn those who voted for them. In my opinion they should be regarded ns above critl iclsm. This may be wrong, but it seefns right anyway. Another matter has come to my no tice lately concerning the city printing. It seems a small matter to make so much of and was probably an oversight. These officers of the city should be above such trickery as the reports seem to imply, aud should be given the benefit of all doubts. They are entrusted with tbe expenditure of other vast sums of tnonev and ought not be harshly condemned without a chance to explain. Mathki k». Deputy Sheriff J. E.
