JOHNSON, llusluess 31anuger, Holered at postoDIco at San Ant.nlo, Texas, at second-class mattor. MONDAY, IIIXCMIlKIt 17, 1883. The Laredo Times it out of sorts with the Galveston News because that paper hinted that the sentiments or the Times were decid edly Republican and so far his refxscd to tike it back, although the Times man says he is a Democrat. The Marlin liall adds the name of Henry Woodland, of Falls county, to the lilt of Mier prisoners of Texas who drew white beans which was published in the Light last week, making only four survivors of that famous Mexican butchery ol defenseless men. The Light has several times entered its protest against the exaction of exorbitant rents, as militating against the growth of San Antonio, and It .hopes landlords will ulti mately realize the possibility of "killing the goose that lays the golden egg," by over greediness. Rents should come down. Reas onable rents will help San Antonio, while exorbitant rents will delcr laboring men from settling here. Colonel Atkinson, in one of his practi cal letters, says: "There are twice as many clerks as are needed, and not enough skilled mechanics; twice as many poor sewing girls who can only sew in the poorest way, and not enough skilled needle women; twice as many men trying to live by their wits, and failing in It, as there are capable of applying their hands to useful arts; twice as much capital waiting to be used as there are men capable of using it profitably to themselves and safely for those of whom they borrow It." A vto OROUS correspondent ol the Light in discussing the inaction and icdilTercnce shown by some ol the moneyed men of the city to wards proposed and contemplated enterprises, spoke of a certain citizen, as being chief of the mossbacks, and described him as having the "moss floating In graceful pendants'from his back, as it does from a tall tree in South ern Louisiana, and he wrapped it, around him with a pride worthy of Cato." The corre spondent's letter was not used, but his discrip lion of the non-progressive element, while a little bit overdrawn, represents some ol their characteristics. It is true, however, that all men are not mossbacks, because they do not plunge into new enterprises, but the word hss Its greatest meaning when applied to Ihe man, who, while refusing to go Into or encourage any and all enterprises that would benefit himself as well as others, at the same time stands In the way of those who would. This sort of a man is a mossback, and when his place Is filled with one who is enterprising and progressive, the difference between them will be very perceptible In the progress and improvement made. The Floresville Chronicle asks some peril ueni questions on the support of a road b iwccn san Antonio and that place in the following Item: "All the lum ber used in Floresville it brought from San Antonio. The freleht nr in I. 59, that Is, we pay one-third more for freight than the purchase price of the lumber in San nuiuuiu. uur mercnants buy their goods Ic San Antonio, and all the cotton, wool, hides, etc., goes from here direct to San Antonio Should not the city and county o( Bexar dc something to encourage this trade by Improy Ing the road the old Goliad road i lh . it that the authorities, both of the city and county, allowed this old road to be fenced up t vynyqpei not judge Mason open this lead Ing thoroughfare this old road that was tin only road leading from San Antonio to Goliad and the culf In the .days of the mini r.ti,,,. of the holy Catholic church; In fact, Jhe only road until the United btates Government out the road from Victoria, via Yorktnum Sutherland Springs In 1846 f We call Judge Mason s attention to this, and aslc nun to play his nana energy for the opening of road and the Improvement of the same as far at least as the Salado, and promise him the thanks ol our county and the public generally. The system recommended by Professor Ilatbedl would have too many complications, and, therefore, too much friction in its machinery. If the people are competent to select Ihe members of the Commissioners' court out from the mass bf the people, thsy are equally competent to choose a County Super Intecdent ol Public Schools. Delegated power Is not Imbued with wisdom simply by the fact that it is delegated by the people. The gov ernment is founded on the capacity of the people for selfgovernment, and the LIMIT is not ready to confess it to be an illusion and a failure. The County Commissioners being few In number, would be more likely to be In fluenced by personal influences and lo run Into favoritism and nepotism In electing a County Superintendent than the majority of the people would be. The drift ol all power now is to run Into rings ami combinations by which Ihoie in power are enriched and thepeople are robbed, and we must use every effort to haul IT from this lee shore with Its resounding breakers. In many counties the County Commissioners are pitchforked into office by the party caucus and are indifferently educated and ill-informed, and where Ihey resign the County Judge fills the vacancies and the one man power is not often wisely exercised or ex ercised in the interest of the people. A Slate Superintendent with County Superintendents, where counties have over 4000 population, is simple and easy. The sentiment of the large majority of the voters of the city is that "moiibacklim roust go," and that rings and cliques must retire to the back ground. This is a healthful and patriotic sentiment, every way creditable to thepeople, and it is the crop gathered from seed 1011 and watered by the I. lour, which took the non-progiessive bull by the horns when others were frightened by his bellowings and pawings. Thepresent "boom" ol San Antonio must be pushed lorward with such Improve ments as will draw capital and population, and this result can only be accomplished by electing live, liberal and go ahead men to the Council. The streets are In a condition which is absolutely disgraceful to the city, since a slight rain renders them impassable, they being so constructed as to retain instead of carrying off the surface water. Thousands of dollars ol the'money of the tax payers has been thrown away and wasted in work on the streets. This Is a fact attested by Ihe con dition of the streets. No truthful person is able to controvert it. The surface water Is dammed up on every street by the bungling rk which has been executed, and no effort is made to apply a remedy. The Street Com missioner, no doubt, fancies the streets are in supurb condition. The Light i for a change in the conduct of municipal affairs, acd opposed to the wasting of the people's money by Incompetent and non-progressive men, and it proposes to discuss these matters in an independent way. Elect progressive men. Fetirs Cutting. Iilitor San Antonio Light: Since by memorials to the Legislature about to be convened, by Judges' charges to grand juries, and by correspondence through the different pipers, the fence cutters are de nounced in the strongest possible terms, as much so as were that party of American colo nists who threw the tea overboard in Doston harbor, allow me to submit a few words in rep'y. To say the fence cutters alone are to bUmeis to say what the facts do not sub stantiate. Fotbearance often ceases to be a virtue. Mob law, while never technically right, Is almost always surrounded by mitigat ing circumstances. When those in authority ignore the rights of the weak and court the favor of the rich and powerful and conduct themselves in such a way that the people lose confidence in the fair, impartial administra tion of the law to all alike and become ex as perated beyond endurance, mob force is the natural outgrowth, and fence cutting an index to just such a condition of aflairs. To say that no tniustice has been done that verv lame class of citiiens who are small land owners who are complaining that they have been fenced up, that they often have to go 10 miles to get to a place not five miles distant, that they have been cut off from water, a natural right to all ; that the roads have been locked up by corrupt Commissioners' courts, that a few men styling themselves "Cattle Kings" have, with few- exceptions, completely Ignored their rights; that redress through Ihe courts has been of a very vague and uncertain nature for the reason thai so many judges on the bench were land grabbers themselves. To say that this condition of affairs docs not exist is to say what is not so. When the law, inconsistent as it is, and in consistent with natural lights, will allow one man like Captain Richard King to own and control 137 leagues of land under a fence 8j miles long, and which includes 50 small land owners, although some of them own as high as four leagues of land, or when Ihe State of Texas will sell, as it has recently lo W. J. Clark and J. R. Wolcott representing a syndicate of N'orihern capitalists a tract of land containing 4,000,000 acres lying along the western boundary of this Slate and not In one continuous body. It Is not hard to see that land owners dotted in between, and it is the same throughout the State, .will be subject to all manner of Imposition, unless the law affords them ample prelection, and that It does not afford such protection any one can see who cares to observe. It would not be so hard to bear all this, if our Land Gods (Lords) were mostlyof our family, llut when SOmanvareof foreien Imnnrlillnn rU,l....l English companies throughout the State, not a word against the English emigrant, but Lnglish companies building up a sort ol Zeudal system, tinging of slavtry, repugnant to accepted American ideas. Opposition, while it has assumed startling proportions, is not entirely without reasonable grounds for excuse. Opposition Is oftentimes a virtue; to do as the Kings tell us we would all be slaves; as the preachers tell us we would all be idiots; as the doctors tell us we would all l.e Ar. Disobedience is oftentimes a virtue; to get good laws is to rebel against bad ones that is just exacuy wnat tne people are doing to-day, G r.HAi-ij Gurrm. t,!,r 0roco.r.T s. 200 Commerce street, lias received tire works, fire crackers, cannon cases, to bo sold at bottom figures for tlio noil rIrVJ0' af Ul8Vi!,ir.iif,,c,)r)r "fi!
