THOMAS It. JOHNSON, ltnslness Manager. Entered at postofllco at Ban Antcnlo, Texas, as second-class matter. .HONDA V, SI:ITI:MI1CK 17, 1883. Till Fott Worth Democrat wants to see the lw concerning vajranu enforced. Dallas brick Isyers Ret $6 per day, being about the highest wsgei ever paid in Texas for outdoor labor. The Msrlio Bsll thinks that the Texas Ccn gressmsn who votes for Randall for Speaker will not represent the sentiment of his con stituents. Till Washington Critic rtports 17 Republi can members of Congress in that city one day last week, who were.there for the purpose of observing the workings of the civil service law. Mr. John Wanamakir has added one more to his many benefactions to the Young Men's Chriitian asiociation, by giving the Philadelphia association $50,000 to pay off its floating debt. The entire amount of the debt $200,000 was made up by other sub scribers. Thr buiineij of the Dominion of Canada has rapidly Improved since the adoption of a protective tariff. Agriculture, manufactories and mines have been greatly developed and the laboring dasies receive better wages than at any time previous to 187S, while the de mand for both skilled and unskilled labor has Increased. On Tin local page will be found an item regarding a descendant of David Crockett, who Is living in destitute circumstances in San Antonio. Under any circumstances this lady Is worthy of attention and care from the cily, and particularly so now In her hour of need, and the Light suggests that the proper steps be taken at once to relieve her distress Tin Cincinnati Times-Star thinks Darwin died too soon, and says 1 "Professor Ghcrke, of Williams college, has discovered that the Polsr bear is the ancestor of the English, German, Russian and Scandinavian races, and of the American Indians. It is a pity the great English naturalist passed away under the false Impression that he descended from monkey," The recent decision of an Alabama Judge that the Police Gaette it an Immoral and ob scene publication, and fining its represents tive $1000 or 11 months In the chain gang, is a most righteous judgment, R. K. Fox, the proprietor.wiil appeal the case to the Supreme court, and there is no doubt but what public morals would be somewhat purer If the higher court should affirm the decision made below. Aj an Instance showing that there is at the present time a great abundance of surplus capital on WaU street, it is stated that of the $5,000,000 of bonds entitled to redemption September 5, under the 121st call, only a little more than $1,000,000 were presented for pay ment.. This is explained by the fact that the holders of the bonds seeing no satisfactory chance for reinvestment of their fund 1 prefer to let the money lie Idle In non-interest beat Ing securities rather than go to the trouble of converting the bonds Into idle cash. The Memphis Avalanche, discoursing on the prosperity of the South, says ! "The fads and figures of Southern growth and prosperity set forth In the lit ol September Issues of the leading Southern newspapers have attracted a Eood deal of attention and comment In the Nortb. Our neighbors across the line begin to realise that the South touched bottom, some time ago and Is now on a rapidly ascending scale. There Is no looking behind over the devastating track of war. Forward Is the word, and the marvelous industrial riches above and below Southern ground are In pro cess of development and the final results will astonish the world." The tiaitT has received the Initial number of the American Journalist, published monthly al St. Louis, Mo., R. P. Yoikston, editor. The object of the Journalist is to represent the interests of the working writers of the press throughout the land. The field is one In which there has long been needed 11 true and original representative, and I lie Lioht knows ol no one man in all the coun try more fitted lor the position of editor of such a publication than Mr. Yorkston. Ills practical knowledge of the printing business, and his wide acquaintance with the newspaper men, will enable htm to make the American Journalist what it purports to be, and provide in that publication a means of interchange of opinion and opportunity for more general acquaintance, and the Light hopes for it great success. Hon. Thomas Ochiltrre has wtiltento.a friend in Washington, that he will sail from Liverpool on the 22d int., and that he ex pects to be in Washington October 1. This honorable Texal Representative could well Inscribe upon his banner "venl, vldl, vlcl," as the result of his sojourn In the capitals of Lurope. lie has been petted and feted. Has been the honored guest ol nobilily, and of moneyed aristocrats, and everywhere has been more warmly welcomed and showered with attentions than almost any other citizen of these great Americm States. No one who is acquilnted with him will for a moment pre sume that these honors and attentions have been given to him alone by reason of his being a member of Congress from Texas. lie is peculiarly one man among a million and possesses much more ability than is popularly accredited to him, coupled with the great charm ol good-fellowship, good breeding and lively wit. Tom is of Texas and lor Texas, and while he Is our representative in Con gress, he Is also a representative man, and fills the position he occupies as a public man ably and creditably, and will always live like a prince where others would starve like pau pers. "Jran Valjran," Dallas correspondent ol the New Orleans Times-Democrat, says : "I see In your great September edition Governor Ireland says he Intends calling an extra ses sion of our Legislature. We expected this, but this was his first announcement ol the fact. That such a step Is necessary Is obvious. Ami I was glad to read he intends to urge a liberal, appropri ation to have Texas properly repre sented at your exposition. It is but the wish of all progressive men in the State that our products be fully and grandly displayed on that occasion. To do this requires money. No individuals can afford to stand the ex pense, and the State should do so. It will be the greatest opportunity of a lifetime to illus trate Texas as It is before, representative men and women of the world. You may, and we may, be certain Kansas will be there at full length, and very properly. We have an old habit, however, of sending a raft of old fash ioned representatives lo Austin, wilh old ways and notions men who would look upon such an expenditure of "Ihe people's money" as downright folly and wrong. They cannot be made to see that the people's lands and in dustries may thus be fourfold enhanced In value; that their State will thus gain new citi zens and sources of wealth. But they may act differently this time." "Varro," the Washington correspondent ofthe San Antonio Express, sails into Tom Ochiltree, M. C, with Democratic vim. He charees that a triincular KeDubliean srmliVate In Ihe southwest are bad, very bad, and then drags (or tries to) Secretary Folger into the arena, because the people of the Seventh Congressional district chose to elect a Repub lican Congressman after the Texas Legisla ture had patterned out a "truly loyal" Dem ocratic territory. This sly Democratic war upon Federal officials under the guise of an "Arkanslan M. C." and General Rosencrans and Holman, of Indiana, the latter as the bumper in the scheme, is well concocted, but unfortunately the resurrection Is premature. Ever since the "Red Headed Ranger" was elected, the entmy's guns have been firing an alarm against such doings upon the border, for fear of a repetition ol the offense. This was expected in a measure, but now comes the penny-a-liner Varro, who exposes all the hands, but his own. Is this fair I Is it honest! We opine not, and call him to a "show-down." Let him be specific; not generalize and take such enlarged views. The Express ought not to embarrass a triumvirate of officios In the way It Joes by publishing a communication written so lar from base (we mean those attacked are so far from base). No fair man would call forth in a year or two afterwards another rejoinder against one who had pasted to "that bourne Irom wlience no traveler returns." This the Washington correspondent well knew who maligned Secretary Folger, Brewster, Plato, et al through the San Antonio Express, and thus shielded himself under the panoply of Demo cratic howling and personal Incredulity. The election of Ochiltree has rankled and will continue to rankle the Democracy. His ad herents ask only lair play and they propose to have It. BREVITY BASKET. lllled With Mention of Minor Events anil Tunny Items. Extract from a letter from Angelical "Dear Henry You ask If I return your love. Yes, Henry, I have no use for it, and return it with many thanks. By, by, Henry," A country girl wrote to her lover: "Now. ijeorge, don't you fale to be at the singing school to-night." George wrote back that in the bright leilcon of youth there's no such word as "fale." The Ohio mode ol conducting a political campaign is very much like Tobe Glider's es timate of a play by a company of stalling ac !2r J'Bowlmg Green.
