Ik iomi fruit dealer would only sell at reasonable prices, he would never have hit fruit spoil on his hands. Exorbitant prices csuic fruit to spoil. A WRIriK In the Galveiton News recently wrote In praise and defense of tramps, but we doubt if he would Rive one of them a "cold potato" to stay his stomach. The Galveston News has the effrontery to speak of San Antonio as being irreligious and case-hardened. The devil hat been trying to rent out hell to the Bourbons for winter quar ters and remove his throne to Gslveston Island. Our neighbor of the Times is much more of an antiquity than we had supposed, as he was In Philadelphia at school, with the late Dr. Marion Sims, who, having been practic ing medicine nearly 50 years, must have been near 70. Tar people of Dal!as,from the way in which they treat opera companies, seem to be desti tute of the organ of tune. If they wtll visit Ssn Antonio they can hear first diss opera compinles, which cannot afford to sing in a "neck of woods," like Dallas. Till proposition of Dr. HerrTto make one grand sewer of the river should be promptly sat down upon In the City Council, and the Alderman who does not vote against it does not represent his constituents. It is a modified form of the proposition to make sewers of the ditches, which was squelched a month or two ago. Tilt Dallas Times has this to say of Con gressman Wellbora's intention of voting for Randall : "We would feel a great deal more pleased If we had friends on guard at this time, not men who openly announce their great friendship for the enemy." This lick at Well born floors the San Antonio Randall paper, the Express. Ir WOULD be a God-send to the United States, as well as a blessing to the human race, if Eoglsnd would demand the extradition of O'Donovan Rossa and hang him. He has admitted enough to convict him of knowing and plotting the dynamite explosions in Lon don, tnd none but absolute fiends would run the risk of mangling, mutilating and killing women, children and innocent persons. Till following'!! the list of Democratic Presidential candidates: Samuel J. Tilden, Grover Cleveland, William Dorshelmer, Abram Hewitt, W. S. Hancock. Samuel t Randall Judge Pratt, of Brooklyn, Thomas r. iiayara, iieorge llosdly, II. B. Payne, Georce II. Pendleton. Georne II. MePIUll.n Henry C. Slocum, W. R. Morris, Stephen j. rieiu.josepn t;. McDonald, Thomas A Hendricks, Lyman Trumbull, Allan G Thurman, George F. Stoneman. THE Fort Worth Gazette says: Complaint Is made at Ssn Antonio, both through the local press and by citizens, that the authori ties are not as progressive as their constituents, "Old fogyism" Is alleced airainit the rii Council and they are said to stand in the way of needed local improvements. If this h true, It is bad for San Antonio. No town that expects to be anvlhinr can aflord in hampered by municipal raossbackixm. But the voters have a remedy, that is always hand. It Is the ballot box. Till law school will turn out a fine lot of lawyers. Ex-Governor Roberts, when he happens to be right Is very right, but when he Is wrong, which is his normal state, he Is very wrong wrong all over. He is bigoted and narrow minded and will infect his lan pupils with his prejudices. Why should the State pay salaries to law professors t Farmers and mechanics are much more Hiatal and much more needed than lawyers. Why should the State pay salaries to law pro fessors t Tilt Hrcnham Banner stnslbly observes: "Many young men of the present day flip pantly use the word yank ee as one of con tempt; they apparently overlook the fact that many of the pioneers of Texss, and some of the most honored men In Texas history were natives of the New England Slates, but who became thoroughly identified with their adopted States. Texas Is to-day as cosmopol itan a State as there is the Union. Her popu lation is composed of all nationalities and every State in the Union Is represented. Good and bad men are to be found In every Slate and the plsce of a man's nativity has nothing to do wllh his character." Till Blanco Star-Vindicator, in speaking of an item in the Light, regarding the silver spike ceremonies to take place about the first of January, when the railroad system will le completed between the United Slates and the Cily of Mexico, says : "Wllh the exception of the connecting of the Union Pacific and Cen tral Pacific railroads, some 12 or 13 years ago, this junction will be the most Important event that ever transpired on the Amer ican continent, since the first permanent lodgment was effected by European adven turers, and the savage owners of the soil brought under subjection to a superior civili zation. Just think of It, New York and every other city and hamlet In the United States of North America put in direct railroad communication wllh the ancient city of the Montezumas the capital of the Republic of Mexico; the most magnificent inland town in the world I And the beneficial results accru ing from this grand scheme, to this as well as to our sister Republic across the Rio Grande, are simply incalculable. It will form an im portant epoch in the history of both countries." It makss no matter how briskly a fire is burning on a raw day and how much genial beat It Is throwing out if 100 men should en ter the room 97. would seize the shovel, tongs or poker, with a sort of desperation and pro ceed to punch and arrange the fire upon a new plan. It is just the same way in refer ence to editing a paper every man from the nabob to the tramp, from the genius to the idiot, from the sparkling wit whose mouth drops pearls, to the dullard without an idea, the mechanic and the farmer, the merchant and his clerk, who never wrote 10 lines in all their lives, are natural born idiots and able to edit the most dashing daily In the world. They always volunteer their advice to the editor., To advise editors is a part of their mission, and advice oozes from them like turpentine from a tapped pine, or vanity from a woman with a pretty face. The editor has a hard time to get rid of this brigade of volunteer advisers. The Light is run on the plan of a train on ihe railroad on its own time table, and wilhout any reference to the advices of the advisory volunteer brigade. It Is the only way to run a newspaper, or auv sort of a crsft with the officers and crew. "Governor Iriland would, we believe, be the last man in official position in thi United States to call on the Government's interference in State affairs, particularly when the State is abundantly able to settle them wilhout assist- I ance from such a source. Davis did It, and there was not a Democrat in the State who did not curse him for the act. It is highly im probable, even if Ireland were not a Democrat, that he would court Ihe curses which were visited on Davis." The above is taken from the Dallas Times. Any one, from reading the above extroct, could tell it was from a Bour bon paper from its supreme silliness and spitefulness, the unfailing ear marks of that style of paper. Governor Davis did more to put down the spirit of lawleisness in Texas than all Ihe Bourbon Governors combined, for he had the grit to do his duty fearlessly under trying circumstances. Governor Davis like wise organized the State rangers for a tempo rary purpose, and although Bourbons de nounced him with copious billingsgate for it, his Democratic successors, Coke, Roberts and Ireland, regard them as essential teethe preset vation of order and have made them perma nent. When party venom dies out, men will admit that Texas owes a debt of gratitude to Governor Davis for taking lawlessness by the throit and choking It Into good behavior. Fence cutting was not the order of the day while E. J. Davis was Governor. Having been asked what we mean by the phrases "Bourbons" and "Bourbon Demo crats," we proceed to give the desired informa tion. In 1815, when foreign bayonets Im posed Louis Will on France, the Bourbons ignored the events and changes which had occurred during the 25 years they had "been on their travels," and undertook to govern r ranee on the antiquated schedule; in con sequence of which, it is said, the "Bourbons neithei learned anything nor forgot anything." The remark fits a portion of the Southern Democrats to a T. They are radically uopro- gresslve and incorrigibly narrow and are de- termed to run in the old grooves and the old ruls. The idea of the Bourbons is that poll tics is not a progressive and experimental science, but was complete and perfect cen turies sgo and, therefore, not susceptible of Improvement In any of Its machinery. The Bourbon Is full of prejudice, bigotry, Intoler ance and narrowness, and unprogrcislvcness is radicated In him. All men ol common sense know that politics, or the science of government, Is progressive and experimental, and susceptible of continual Improvement, and they act on this theory. Liberal, pro gressive and teachable Democrats, are very different from the Bourbons, and we never are guilty of the injustice of confounding the two schools in our comments on men and things. The Bourbon is as mulish as a mule, stubborn as a jackass, has the sluds in the chronic form, and Is desd sure he is always right on all subjects, and that Solomon and all the other wise men were fools beside him, and with these Ideas he is a persecutor of such as differ from him to the extent of lynch- I Ingor fence catting.
