Reports from Lawrence, Parsons and other cittes In the Sttte, state that the saloon keepers hare ten up the ficht anJ cloiett their doors. Tut Corpus Ckriitl Caller, always in excel lent paper, has been making a number of additions to the ci'abliihuent, in the way of a brand new Cottrell press, rulinj machine, book bindery, etc. The Jjciit Is pleased to see this evidenci of prosperity for rood newspapers mite good towns. GoviiNOk Is eland has raised his reward for the arrest and conviction of fence cutlers from $30 to $tco, and $150 where lhehih. est punishment permitted a fine of $100 and one jear's imprisonment is Imposed upon the cutter. This will hare some eflect, and in a measure will put a atop to the business. The time to take vigorous steps was at the begin ing, and there is where the Governor failed in the performsnceofhis duty. Tut progressive citizens In each ward should concentrate their votes upon one candidate for Alderman, so as to Insure bis election. Should they divide their votes among several candi dates the mossbacks will achieve a victory, for they always stick together. It is all im portant to the future gronth of San Antonio that her city affairs shall be managed by pro gressive men, and that is the chief issue in the election of Alderman next month. Are the people ready for the election ! Tut diielul results of lynch Uw is most plainly shown Ly the proceedings alMcDade, Texas, on Christmas day, and five dead bodies are left to show the contempt of the law of the land and its power to redress wtongt or punish criminals. This state of ociety is all wrong, and until men are put into ofSce who dare to make the laws supreme, inch chapters as relate to McDade on Christ mas day will be of frequent occurrence. The Judicial hangiagof the leaders of mobs would effect a reformation In a great respect. Somi week or more ago the LtoitT, in a spirit ol banter and Jocularity, remarked tlat the "fool killer was badly needed in the office of the Dallas Times," which remark has put the parson editor in a towering passion, aril forced from him some foul erutatlonf. A preacher should not pour out si:h a tirade c J billingsgate as Parson Steuit Indulged Ida few days ago. The Times accuses the Light of harboring a grudge against that paper cu account of something the Times said in 1875 respecting Governor Davis, but we feel sure the Times was Joking. The Light hatbois 00 grudges on account of old scores; it has thine to do with grave vard onsHnnt , dead issues, and is dealing only with preient and futare issues. The Times is assured that when the Liciit realizes its need of in In. structor In refined and polite diction it will not apply to a paper that has never glren any specimens of refinement of stile and .Hiin.i.i courtesy. If the Times will take an aperient and a shower bath, we fancy it will really feel ashamed of lis spurt of til temper and ill manners, and behave better in Ihe future, Tilt Legislature will soon be in session and we hope the members, when the ronvm. will discard poker playing and guzzling whisky and energetically devote themselves to their public duties, which, without any cxsggera tion, are of the gravest description, Nc former Legislature hat been called upon to deal with to difficult and complicated a ques tion as is that of fence cutting, and the exl gency oi the times and the gravity of the occasion should produce sobrietv of ludVment on the part of the members. The Light most alacert.lv wishes and hopes that the Leg islature nrav hit unon and tlevU an anVnn.it and effective remedy, and that fence cutting win soon ue a tning 01 me past, wmie not wedded to any of the many remedies which have leea proposed by the host of wrllcia who have taken Ihe field on this knotty Iheme, the Light is unable to aee in nhat tespect a herding law wooM be any Improvement npon the fence law. It is best to relegate the cr.tlte matter to the Legislature 1 bat we cannot for bear remarking that when so clave and roomeatons a question Is to lie disposed of feittea teste move slowly heave the lead line at every step is true wisdom. The occa sion is serious and the times out of Jo'nt. Tut prosperity of Texas depend, In a very great measure, apon the cessstion of the spwit of lawlessness prevalent in some coun ties. The war waged against fences lias dc generated into vandalism andlanlcsaneis, and is seriously injuring Ihe State by ditcourig' log investments in ftrmlcg and grating lands It has Mated many stockmen to sell out their cattle. The pretence that the fence culttrs drove out the Indians, and for that reason are entitled to destroy fences when they are erected, is absolute bosh, and even were It founded in fact that they did espel Ihe In dians, that would conler upon them no tight to trample upon Ihe tights of their fellow citi zens. The Light doubts the wisdom of ap plying opprobrious epithets to Ihe fence cut ters, since its sole effect will be to Irritate and esasperate them, and for this reason It has endeavored to appeal to their good sense ar.d patriotism with the view of persuiding Ihem to desist from their lawless deeds of their own accord. It is as plain as is the sun at noon day, that the wholesale war waged against fences has injured, and is stiil Injuring Texas most seriously by arresting the Influx of popu lation and capital which wis pouring Into the State before this Ill-timed lawlessness devel oped Itself. Holiday Edition. rom the Del llio Hot. The San Antonio Light comes out with a large holiday edition, containing some beautiful illustrations of Ihe missions, new buildings and other objects of interest in and around San Antonio, and an inlerestinrf sketch of the first struggle for Meiican inde pendence; also, a slight sketch from the catly history of San Antonio. The Peer. From tho Corpus ChrlJtl Critic. The San ANTONro Light's beautifully il lustrated holiday edition, with supplement, besides being a most flattering evidence of a remarkable degree of enterprise end great pint of progress on Ihe part oi its owners, is, lo. hichly attractive as a newspaper, able in its editorial and executed in a manner which, in its mechanical entirety, renders it the peer of any paper in our State. Eveninc Papers. Trotn Ihe Waco Dny. The Marlin Hall says: "The Waco Day is Ihe best evening paper in the State." We think, for its age and opportunities, the Day does very well, but we don't claim yet to be ahead of those excellent evening papers, the san antomo light ana liaiveston rrlnt. But give us their ace and a town of over to.- 000 inhabitants (aa they each have) to operate in, and tho Day can do much better. Speaking About San Antonio. ou tho Dei Itio Dot. "Their 'fossilized money bags' should visit some of the surrounding villages and take less ons In building woolen mills, railroads and other enterprises which tend to develop the resources of Western Texas. The people of this section have become tired oi waiting for San Antonio to develop anything, and it is safe to say that in less than three years there will be a woolen mill in every little town west of Houston, with the exception of San Anto nio, who will have then, as she has now, nothing but the ruins of the Alamo and Ihe White tlepbant to brag about." llorsay Wanta to Go to the Uenata Again. From tho Denver Tribune. Stephen A. Dorsey, the cx-champlon ex pediter of Star routes, is once more before the public. This time he Is not filling the role o a defendant charged with defrauding Ihif Government, but as a plaintiff against his partners In the great New Mexican ranch, of which he is the largest owner. He found that his partners were trying some tricks on him, and thinking it best to put a stop on this order of Ihiogs, he made application that a receiver be appointed in whose bands the,ranch should be placed. The application was granted and the shrewd ex-Senator is now declared to be master of the situation. His friends say that it is his intention to become the sole owner of the ranch, and will, in a few days, buy his partners out. On Monday theaon of Frank R. Sherwin visited thia city, and it was learned that he waa accompanied by Dorsey, The visit of the latter Is said to be of a somewhat mysterious nature, and reporters are on the qulvlve to dis cover his whereabouts. Dorsey, however, can not be found. He came from his ranch in New Mexico. A friend of his remsiked yes terday that he is awaiticg the lime when he will "get even" with the men who formerly were his friends, but who, whea he became the principal defendant in the star-route trial, deserted him and endeavored to shove him to the wall. The gentleman who made this remark to a Tribune reporter is one of Ihe oldest residents of Colorado and a warm personal friend of Dorsey's. He believes that Dorsey is not one of the over-religious men of the country, but thinks there are many prominent men in this country whose chief characteristic is not hon esty. . "Does Dorsey feel that he has been perse cuted by some his former friends !' wca asked. "Yes, sir; I have do doubt but he does, although I have never heard him say so, I think, too, that he wilt yet be on the top of the heap." "What do you meant" "It Is not generally known that Steve Dor seyis a political aspirant, but he is, all the same, and will yet be in a position which will compel those who have endeavored, and have partly succeeded lo brand him as an outcast from the Republican party to be his iriends' "To what political clhce does Dorsey as pire t" 1 "He will be the first Republican Senator from the Slate of New Mexico," "His desire, then, is to be returned to Ihe United States Senate V "Yes, sir; and tho newspapers and so-called politicians of this country may as well mskc up their minds that he will get there," "Is Dorsey popular in New Mexico !" "He is. He will be supported by the en tire parly thtre,vand will himself use every effort to be sent to the Senate." , "Does New Mexico desire to be Admitted as a State I" "Yes; application will be made ahorlly, is enable the Territory to adopt a new constitu tion, and this will be followed by the admission of New Mexico aa a Slate." Feminine Fun. You can't always letl by the wash on the line how hard a worker the widow'i dasghter is. "Why do girls kiss each other, while the boys do not?'7 lltcause girls have nothing better 10 kiss, ami Ihe boys have. From an albumt A woman's dress is like the envelope of a letter the cover is fre quently an Index lo the contents. There is a good deal of human nature In clothes wringeis. A Kansas girl had her band badly squeezed by one lately. A woman will calmly permit the cat to sleep in her husband's sealikin cap, but she will pt tufflnl it the cat attempts to make a hammock ot her swell bonnet "I declare," said Kannie, "you lake the words right out ol my miuih." "No wonder they are so sweet," said Lem. The day was set before lie left that evening. No w oman would be happy lo be Ihe only woman in the world and have all the men worship her. She wouldn't lie satisfied, She'd want another woman or two In envy her. A young Oil City lady recently visited New York, and. when she returned home, related how she slopped at a "palatable hotel and went up and down atalrs in a cultivator." Her parents should cultivate her. She went into a store to buy some toilet soap, and when Ihe clerk was expatiating on Its merits, about made up her mind to pur chase; but when he said "it wouldn't keep off chaps," she said "she did not want that kind." Old Deacon Pilkins said lo himself ! "Fal staff says, 'What is honor T' as though it was hard to tell. Hut let my wife sit behind another woman in church and she'll tell what's on her in less than five minutes." A few desks in the reading room of Ihe Hritish museum are set apart "for ladies only," and one of the standing iokes of the room. perfectly supported by the fact, is that they are never occupied, the ladies preferring to be with the gentlemen In all cases. To co about with cold feet is to undermine the constitution, and this very many women and girls are doing. Once no country girl waa reckoned fit to be married until she had knit her pillow case full of stockings, hut it Is not so now. Why! For the simple r-ason that thick stockings are not fashionable. A Wyoming iury. composed of seven men and five women were shut up for two daya am) two nights, and yet they cuuldn't agree. It is ssld that if they had remained out for 17 years there would have been no verdict, as Ihe five women talked the seven men deaf in the first sit hours. In sneaklnc ol the industrial procress of Ihe South, after enumerating ihe rapid strides and growth of Ihe Southern States, the Iron Age has the following: "Texas is adding from J6o.cxxj.ooo to $100,000,000 a year to her taxable value, while the tat rate is now nly about three mills and could be reduced to half that rate. The annual immigration is estimated by Governor Ireland at 75,000. Considerable progress is making in mining and manufacturing, but the chief wealth as yet is land, cotton and cattle.
