Such indignity and outrage was endured with remarkable and com mendable patience, but it will never be endured again . The people of Texas are law-abiding, they respect the American flag and American soldier, they seek no conflict with the national authorities, but had conditions at Brownsville continued a few days longer a host of Texaus would have swept doivHr on-"that' negro gax?-5iSon and not one .would have been left to tell the tale. When a peaceable, home-loving, law-respecting people see one ,of their chosen officials shot down, see a peaceable citizen killed, see the home of another citizen riddled with bullets and the lives of his wife and children put in . fearful peril, and one lady sought to be outraged, it is.hard to realize that even such a people restrained them selves. That they did so is sur prising, and when hereafter men speak- of lawlessness in Texas, let them remember what the people of Brownsville endured, yet held their peace and shed no man's blood. They suffered in . silence, they demeaned themselves as law-abid-j ing. people, as they are, but if ever they are again subjected to treat ment so vile they will strike to the death, and their fellow citizens will see that thev are sustained in de fense of their homes. The time has come to strike when soldiers in the national uni form turn murderers, aud when negroes dare recklessly to snoot unoffending white men and offer to lay lecherous hands on pure and defenseless women. quiet and respectable character. But these troops undoubtedly came here in a sullen, angry mood. They "had it in" for the white 'people of Brownsville, on account of hav ing been excluded from the Austin encampment. The conduct of a large number of Major Penrose's men from the start was ugly. They courted trouble; undoubtedly with the intention of '"shooting .up the town" at the least provocation. Yet despite the fact that . the sol diers had violated repeatedly the laws against drunkenness and dis- ordeiij.jidlld-J!7ie-streef , 'S ing their brief stay here, our peo ple had-borne it patiently, aud only one of the negroes had been arrest ed and fined-previous to the attack on the town. Justice demands that these facts be made knoWn, and it demands further that the perpetrators of the or color or. previous condition1 of servitude or customers. . 9 - The idea .that any citizens could have been guilty of this outrage upon Brownsville is too prepos terous to merit further attention. But in that The Herald is relia bly informed thatthe article is as gross a misrepresentation of the sentiments and actual conditions at Corpus Christi, as it is of the situation at Brownsville, this paper feels that it should pay it sufficient attention to give it denial on behalf of our good friends at Corpus. A representative gentleman from that city informs The Herald that in truth the only person in Corpus who holds such views or could have coceived such a prepos terous idea is the editor of the Crony. After all that Brownsville has endured, such insult added to injury might hurt, if it were' wVvUirtrjrvortlry ot con sideration.' But as it Is the Crony merits only the contempt of our people.
