Accordi.no to the Ohio Stale Auditor's re port, $2,000,000 were collected through the provisions of the Scott liquor law, which sum wis devoted to the relict of the poor ami to other benevolent putpoics. Till pop corn ball mutt go. A health officer at Cleveland has discovered that the pink pop corn ball that Is sold at circuses and on the streets is poisonous because of the anoline used In the coloring process. In tiii race at Fleetwood park, on Satur day, between St. Julian and Jar-Eye-Sec, the latter was the winner. Time 2:20, 2:lS4, 2:19. The purse was $5000. The slow lime was occasioned by a very heavy track. Mr. IJ Esther's lecture, "The Relcnofthe Common Teople," has been greeted with a full house at Dallas. It Is an intellectual treat, and our people should give him a good audience at Casino hall to-morrow night. THUS far during his American tour Lord Chief Justice Coleridge has declined to be interviewed, but from his post-prandial utter ances it Is to be Inferred that he Is highly gratified with the reception he has me' on every hand. The celebrated Jewish (east of Kosh Ha shanah, or new year, commences on the even ing of to-day and terminates to-morrow night. It will be followed on the loth by the day ol atonement, and shortly after by the other Isra-litlc feasts. The Treasury detectives made a seizure In Minnesota ol a lot of paraphernalia and plates for manufacturing counterfeit silver cer tificates. The captured notes present a bung ling appearance, although they are more easy to imitate than the currency. The Greenville Banner, discoursing on the subject of German farmers, ssyt: "The Ger man farmer Is a success In spite ol some prejudices against him, and we wish Texas had a million of them with their small, well tilled farms, their thrift and their happy so ciety." Alderman Lockwood ain't no swine and knows when he has got enouch. In his every Sunday apology through the Express he ssys he has not the slightest intention or desire to become a candidate for Ihc Mayor alty. Another resolution on the ditch ques tion would knock all future Aldermanlc ambi tion out of him. Senator Ulair's sub committee has been a most fruitful theme for the newspaper writers, and it is quite probable that the re sults obtained may be more valuable than they now appear, although the greater portion of Ihe testimony taken has come from theorists and men who practically do not know that it takes a hundred cents to make a dollar. Train robbers attacked a Santa Fe train at Coolidge, Kansas, Saturdsy morning end killed the engineer and wounded the fire man. One of the robbers got Into the ex press car and shot at the messenger, who re turned the fire and compelled him to run without getting any of the money or valu ables. Officers are In pursuit. Tin Washington Republican says : "The railways of Texas have compromised with the colored people by agretlng to put on cars for their accommodation In every way equal to those furnished to white travelers. This ought to obviate the necessity of having to kill so many "niggers" in the future." But it would not obviate the necessity for giving the fool-killer a job of exterminating the class of writers who attempt to say some thing smart In items like the one quoted above. The esteem with which President Arthur Is held In the minds of the people all over the country finds a partial acknowledgment through the complimentary endorsement, and resolutions so far made at Ihe Slale Repub lican conventions. He lias been much more a President of Ihe pecple and for the people than any man who has occupied that position for very many long years, while at the same time his administration has done more to unite the broken and disordered factions of Ihe Re publican party In New Voik than anyolher one agency. The Uocrne Advance evidently under stsnds the railroad situation, and gives timely advice in the following) "The trouble with ban Antonio was that it had so many railroad schemes In view it got swamped. Now, stall over and build one. The press of San Antonio have punched the merchants up at a lively rale, and tried by every argument to show them the advantage of a railrood lo Ihe gulf, but to no purpose. If San Antonio does not show mote energy she will lose what she has gained. There are other cities in Texas which are growing ripidly." Tup. Si. Louis Globe Democrat says : "II comparative distances meant anything nowa days, the opening of the Atlantic and Pacific route to California would be a grand thing ht St. Louis, San Francisco and all the interme diate country. The new line Is much shorter than any other. One might expect it to car ry passengers and freight for proportionally less money than Its competitors. Hut It will do nothing of the sort. Rates will be fixed on a plane which will give handsome profits to the longest and least favorably situated line, and the public will lose all ihe benefits of com petition. This is one aspect of the pooling problem, and, in some respects, an unpleas ant aipect. Hut there teems to be no help for It." The New York Tribune says i "The heavy failures of the last day or two in the woolens ami clothing trade of this city will excite surprise and sympathy In business circles all over the country. The firms in volved In the ruin are chiefly, If not entirety, composed of Hebrews, whose careful busi ness habits and great industry are well Known. It Is not often that shrewd traders and mer chants of this class get Into such trouble. The cause assigned for the crash Is a great shrink age In orders for woolen goods for the last lew years It seems very likely, however, that fuller explanations will show that unwise speculations In real estate had something to do with It. If this proves lo be the case the Jewish tradition against buying houses and lands will be strengthened." According, to that very old Spanish legend, says a correspondent of the New York Com mercial Advertiser, the Lord el Eternal Padre once called Into his presence the patron saints of European nations, acd asked them what they wished for their native countries. St. George, who spoke on behalf of England, begged for ships and coal; St. Martin asked that France should have the best wines and much glory; St. Gregorius, St. Janvier, Si. Olaf and others presented their claims, all of which the Lord granted. When It came the turn of St. Jacques de Compostella, the patron Saint ol Stain, he said : " I want for my country the finest climate." "Granted." "I want lor It the most beautiful women." " Granted again." " I want the best govern ment." " Impossible," anjwered the Lord, "This has already been granted to some one else." The Laredo Times, speaking of the pres ence In that cily of fames Price, the detec tive who arrested M. T. Polk, the Tennessee Treasurer, says the Captain " is camping on somebody's track; that he has been robbed of $ 1500 In money that he ought to have, because he was the man who first arrested Polk, and he says he has been forced to relinquish his prisoner, and that he looked down the muz zle of a Winchester rifle when he did so. He was ordered to hold up his hands, and cer tain United States officers deprived him of the Tennessee Treasurer, and he proposes lo make It exceedingly sultry for certain parties In Texas with the powers that be In Washing ton." Mr. Price Is now the man with a grievance, and if he has been so wronged it Is to be hoped that he will be able to get even handed justice meted out to him. Mr. G. McPherson, editor of the Blanco Star-Vindicator, was In the city a few days ago, and in his account of his visit we get the following ! "San Antonio is the most cos mopolitan city west of the Mississippi river ....The San Antonio of jo years ago Is fast fading away and soon the town will be com pletely Americanized..., We observed very palpable evidences of Improvement all over the city. New buildings were going up on every hand, while there was not a single house In the place 'to let'.... On Main plaza there stands an old cathedral, the rear portion of which has been there almost from time Imme morial. Its antiquated walls, could they speak, could tell many a tale and describe many a scene .that are now lost to the world forever. Nobody should visit the Alamo City without going through this ancient cathedral. It will send a thrill of veneration and devotion through your bosom that nothing else can, save a visit to the Alamo building itself." The St. Leonard Hotel. Wo advlso our friends when they go to Ban Antonio to stop at tho new "bt.
