If it had not Imm'u for tht KrvucliutMn's genius, the- world would never have known the eihaineter, and Richard Mansfield wmld have misled one of hit imm telling hits. It is queiwiuuablr Ihemfuir whether the Cluoagoaw's of aim to $250,000 of royalliw on thu play i justifiable, ns the royalties would never have been earned, if Edutotid Rostaud had not pwbliahed thu now famous play. Mr. Cross claims and has apparently proved that the French writer has taken a comedy written by Gross twenty-five years ago, entitled "The iMerchaut Prince of Cortiville" and made it over into "Cyrano d Bererac." Perhaps the charge may have some founda tion, but the courts should have made allowance for the genius whieh gave lo Cyrano the life that the merchaut prince of Ctiruville nover enjoyed. Tritt banting of a negro rape fiend in Te.vaa lite oilier day whs made the subject of a discussion in the United States senate Monday, ii resolution to investigate these lyntshings being introduced by Mr. Galliner oT New Hampshire. That such au atrocious deed as the burn ing ot a huMwii being ttkoald mill forth widespread ooudeitt nation is not to be wondered at, bnt it is a remarkable faot that, in discussing the horrible affair, no reference was mad to the infamous outrage for which the, lit d was burned. Tim people of the Nortu, it seems, on u not oouoetve of the rage which such au nutrag eagaiunt the woman hood t the iioulk tnllauics in the hearts of tu whiles A similar crime i tlw city of Cleveland, Ohio, n-.fiulv wa punished by fine uil a brief term f imprison ment, as if for a mere misdemean or. It seems almost inoredible to a Southern man that such a fear ful crime could be so lightly pun ished. The Heuald is no apologist for the crime of buruing a human being at the stake, but it does be lieve that the crime for which tho negro Morgan was burned deserv ed instant death by haugiug or shoouug. it is the oue crime for which lynching is excusable, aud there are doubtless very few, if any, men in Texas ivho do not condone lynching in such iimtauoes but uot burning. As Senator Bailey aptly informed the New Hampshire member, the federal government has no right whatever to middle with the execution of the laws in the individual states. The doctrine of states' rights is not yet dead, nor will it ever die, unless through a repetition of the gigantic fratricidal stniggle of '61. The states alou have jurisdiction over crimes committed within their limits. That, they should endeavor to prevent a repetition of the hor ror which was perpetrated at Long view, it is true. But there will never be a court held in the South which will punish any member of a mob which lynches by hanging or shooting any creature that com mits the same crime that Morgan was guilty of. The bid made by all of the beef concerns in the trust to Mipply beet to (tie government for the In dian agencies at eight cents per pound, when they are selling to private parties at eleven cents a pound, should be the last eye-opener the pun j le should require to prove to them that they are being unjustly imposed upon by lh trust. If eight oents per pound repref til.- n liir pndil wluHi it must slmw, else the bid would uot have been made then the price charged to the people of eleven cents per pound is gross extortion. There seems no longer any doubt of this, but the question is, what to do t.bout it. The only effective means of getting at the trust ap pears to be through the tariff, aud that sacred wall will probably have no openings made in it, un til the democrats gain the power. Aud when will that bef Now Post at Ntifcvo Laredo. Laredo, Tex., May 26. Capt. I.
