New York Journal : It is doubtful whether the law to prohibit the issue of free passes on railroads to legislators will pass in any shape. If it does pass, however, we insist it be made to include the press and be declared a mis demeanor lor editors to accept a dead-head tiCKCt over any rattroaa. Lake uxiar's wile. the press should be above suspicion, and it asks no privileges from the railroads or from any oilier power except the people. Dallas Times: It is said that Dallas con tains about as many men of the ox-cart gait as any town in Texas. We have often denied it, and blushed when we lied so clibly, The herds of this class of animals in our midst drove the Pacific Construction comDanv tb Fort Worth, when we could have obtained it by Givinc the company free Quarters. We not only lost that, but we lost the Fort Worth and Denver road by it. If these same animals are to control in the Narrow Guage road mat ter we win lose It. The Sun speaks of John C. New's aspira. tioni and disappointment : The death of Mr, Howe cave Mr New another chance. It would be very pleasant and comfortable to be Postmaster General until Secretary Folger should be prepared to resign. It was high t:me for the President to recognize Indiana. The President did recognize her but he did not recognize Mr. New. It is a very bitter months of self-recommendation he (ails to oive satisfaction and another is lifted into the Cabinet.

Arrested for Fatllnr: to Obtain License for Helling Lightning ltods-IIInta nt h Counplrncy, Whllo Thomas Connor, a well-known light ning rod agent, was standing on Soledad street, near the corner of Main plaza, last Thursday, he folt a hand laid heavily on his shoulder and heard a gruff voice enquiring his namo. Turn ing, ho saw a tall, stout man In black clothes. Is your namo Connor?" tho man in black askod. "Yes; whnt do you want with mo ?" was tlio response. "I want you to come with me. You are hit prisoner." "tv no uro you j- asxod Mr. uonuor. "Mr name Is Foster, and I'm thn hIh.Hit ,.r Medina county." "What do you want to arrest mo for? Tlicro must bo somo mistake. Is there unv elmrire agulnstmoV" "lou'll ucar allabout that. You Just come with me." .Mr. Connro protested that ho was irtilltlPKi of any uiienscnmircDcaiouiy asKC-u hosier for a show of his authority to mako tho arrest, but mu lu'iocst was not compiled witn. 110 con- unuou use or ins persuasive powers, however, and eventually induced Foster to accompany blin to tlw olllco of bis attorney, Mr. John If. Couclnud. Arrived thorn Mr. I'nnnnr 111. lorincd Mr. Concland how ho had been uia-nau id: and summarily taken In charge. Then u j,imiir uusuou ueiwocn .nussrs, luiieuiuu nuu Foster. "What Is tho charirfl nimlnBt Mr. rmiini-V' Mr. Copcland lnnulred. --mo s cuargeu whu uoing tiusuicss witliout license," said Foster. "Have you a warrant for his annrnhmi. "No. I don t nocd nnv." "Have you anv proof that von nrotlinRlierlir oi itiouinur No. I don't ncod nnv. Kvervbodr hare Knows me. " Who had this complaint Issued ?" To this 110 resnonse was made. Thnn Mr Copelnnd read the law regarding arrests, and Informed Sherlir Foster that If he persisted In currying out his evident Intention to kidnap Connor ho would bo prosecuted. Ho said he did not care. " Well." Slid Mr. Concland. "I'll beitln hv making application for a writ ot habeas cor pus, no tooic n seat anil began writing. Foster stood by for n minute or two, and then said ho would go down tho street. He oultted the room. Conoland and fnnnnrHlun left Inn short time nnd on the stroctthty pnsscd Foster. As l oster mere v bowed to them tliev thought ho hnd abandoned his Intention and accordingly they separated, not suspecting they were to experience any more trouble of Fos ter's making. Hut not long afterward Infer- iiiMiiuu tiKmiiai ,,i,uiiwi was lougeu uetoro jus tlco Anton Adam and summons was liisiied. On this ground, though tho law. us claimed by ;ur. uonuor nun nis trienus, positively ueciures that Information In in isdeiiienuor cases must bo brought In tho county In which tin offense has bocn committed, .Mr. Connor was taken in cus tody, und he was subsequently required to furnish bond for nppenrancu to disprovo the pending complaint, or In default suffer Im prisonment. Ho furnished the bond. Yester day Mr. Copcland brought suit for Mr. Connor against Sheriff Fostor and bis sureties for $10, 000 damages, tho causo of action being fnlso (comtructlvo) imprisonment, ntforts to com- promtso tmvo oeen made, unu tlio matter may ho Bottled without further appeal to tho courts. It issald that tho ofTenso of Mr Con nor was committed In L'valdo. Tho license ho failed to obtain coits but J 1 .50. This sum ho ottered to pay to Shoriir Poster, but tho Sheriff refused to take It. Mr, Connor claims the charge Is the result of a coupIruey with an other lightning rod agent.

Tho attendance at court this morning was mcagro and little Interest uppenrod to be attached to the proceedings. Tho business, howevor, wns of a mixed character. Laura Granway had been using Insulting-language to a constable, for which ho had to pay $5. There was another charge that of being u vagrant. He owned up to It nnd paid his $.1 without hesitancy. Kvory vagrant cannot show so much roady cash und at such short rotlce.

If tho sum mary system of Jurisdiction woro adopted It would bo better for tho public. Inasmuch as it would save expense anil facilitate business In the District court. It would be bettor for tho prisoner becauso he could got prompt justice, and It would suvo prosecutors much unneces sary trouble and expense. A prisoner In such cases can be dealt with by tho Justice or tried by n Jury, whlchaior he prefers. As a rule, guilty men In suehiietty cnsesdeslro prompt Justice, nnd It Is bettor In the Interest ot all parties that thoy should get It." NEWS OF TIIK WOltLII.

Twelvo Lives Lost-One Man Cuts Ills Throat to Kscapo Hut nlng. A veil of grief overshadows Greenville, Texas. Last Saturday the Ende hotel, a three-story building, was entirely consumed by lire and 12 of the inmates lost their lives. The victims were Mrs. N. E. Pruitt, whose plead ings for release from the ruins are described as heart-rending; George Pruitt, a crippled son of the proprietress, who was burned to death ; Louis Albert, jeweler, burned alive; F. D. N. Uiley, contractor, crushed to death; Frank West, a railroad freight clerk, crushed to death ; R. R. Neal, cotton buyer, manner of death unknown; Miss Lou Davis, chamber maid, burned to death ; J. E. Ford, telegraph line repairer, crushed to death ; Hill, a mat tress maker, manner of death unknown; and four negro servants crushed to death. The inmates of the house who escaned were W. D. Pruitt, son of the pronrietor. badlv bruised and mangled ; Dr. T. R. Turner, hor ribly burned and crushed and who may die; M G. Mars, of Daingerfield, badly burned. The slightly injured are the follow ing: D. C. Hell, painter; K. N. Denton, car penter; Tom Victors, butcher; Lewis Morris, Charles Brownel, railroad conductor; Percy Cox, of Honey Grove; W. T. McClure,, a stranger from Tennessee; Fred Ende, owner of the building, and his wife and two daugh ters, and a negro girl employe. The stories told by the survivors beggar description. Dr. Turner lay beneath the timbers till they burned in twain and released him, but not until he was badly burned and mangled. Mr. Denton was, imprisoned, and would have killed himself to escape burnlnt; to death, but a second crash of falling walls released him. One man cut his throat when he found that the flames were consuming him. W. D. Pruitt raved like a mad man when he knew of his mother's horrible death, and it required sev eral strong men to save him from plunging headlong into the flames. Says the San Antonio Times: "Mr. W. W. Corcoran, the Washington philantthopist, who recently reached the good old ace of 8e. bids fair to be a rival of Peter Cooper. He expresses his anxiety to live until he tees a democratic administration." As Pefer .ooper uvea 92 years the deduction drawn irom tne remsrics 01 our Uourbon contem porary is that it despairs of the election of a Democrat to the Presidency in 1S84 and 18S8, but has a sneakim kind of n nntlnn ;. afraid to utter directly that the Democracy will have a chance for the White House in 1092.

An American engineer who, being engaged in the construction of a railway in China, has had unusually favorable opportunities of ex amining the Grevt Wall, built to obstruct the incursions of the Tartars, gives the followine account of this wonderful work : The wall is 1728 miles long, 18 feet wide and 15 feet thick at the top. The foundation throughout is of solid granite, the remainder of compact raatonry. At intervals of between 200 and 300 yards towers rise up 25 to 40 feet high, and 24 feet in diameter. On the top of th- wall, and on both sides of it, are masonry parapets, to enable the defenders to pass un seen from one tower to another. The wall itself is carried Irom point to point in a per fectly straight line, across valleys and plains and over hills, without the slightest regard to the configuration oi the ground; sometimes, plunging down into abysses a thousand feet ueep. utooks ana rivers are bridged over by the wall, while on both banks of larger streams "ronC "'"E ers Placed.
