JOHNSON, lliulness Alauager, Entered at poatolHoo at San AnLnlo, Texas, as seoond-cla&g matter. TUESDAY, 1'UlItUAUY B 1884. Tub article on the sewerage question, to be found elsewhere, Is worthy of perusal, and presents the subject in a very practical mia ner, and In detail. Tin House Committee at Washington has reported favorably upon the bills for public buildings at San Antonio and Waco, and it Is hoped that the proper effort will be made to secure their Immediate passage. "If Tin stockmen of Texas," says the Wills Folnt Chronicle, "be put upon the same footing with ;the farmer, probably some of them would not grow rich so rapidly. II they be compelled to buy or lease the land upon vihich their herds feed, their divdends would not be so enormously lsrge." The first candidate in the field who thinks he can be the successor of Hon. T. I'. Ochiltree is Senator Crain, of Lavscca. Judging from the events of the past month in the Legislature aid the restless condition of the people, the Senator will have to get up very early In the morning if he gets away with Tom s. baggage. Trta Waco Examiner truly says, "The en. glneer's report bore rather bard upon the Missouri Pacific system, and we are sorrow to see that some ol the papers are pushing the matter to the road, apparantly forgetting all at once the immense advantage conferred npon this State,thc Immense increase in values caused by its completion, and how ardently they clamored for it before it was finished Ingratitude is by no means a rare fault these days." The largest school in the world Is said to be the Jews' free school, In Spitalfields, Loa- don. It has a daily attendance ol over 28co pupils. The Institution is also a training col lege, and nearly every teacher in the school has been trained within its walls. Besides the ordinary branches, the Jewish child has not only to learn Scripture history and the ele ments of religion and morality, but has also to be tought to read Hebrew fluently, and trans late seme portions, at least, of his prayer book and ol the Hebrew Scriptures. The Corpus Christ! Critic pays the Light the following compliment : " The newspaper of phenomenal growth, and the one which stands par excellence, without a superior, and with but very, very few equals In any respect whatever throughout not only this great State to-day, bat throughout the country at lsrge, li the San Antonio Light. Think of its co ing into existence so recently as iSSo in th Alamo City, surrounded by and having to battle against the formidable influences of wealthy mossback hierarchy, and yet, punny ana in rsgs, with but brains and honesty, backed by fearless Integrity, wrapped up In its swaddling cloth of four inches by six, it has uccessfully reached its present magnificent maturity and stands a great vindicator of right and justice, law and order, commanding and wielding an influence potent in the promotion of the best Interests of our State." The Baltimore Manufacturers' Record has compiled some interesting facts from the cen sus report of 1880 In regard to population. "Texas has led all the States in gaining popu lation from other Statcs,takrag 44 per cent; and Fl.rfda and West Virginia rank next, taking each 33 per cent. West Virginia, however, gleaned her folks mostly from Virginia, from which State she was sliced. Mississippi has drawn largely, drawing 23 per cent; North Carolina it lowest, attracting only z per cent up t 168a Kentucky, Tennessee and Maryland ranked along much alike, getting from 10 to 14 per cent Tennessee contributed 33,859 to Alabama, and got back 22,200 Ala- basaUns. Georgia drew 19,481 from Tennes tee, and Kentucky 54,386, Tennessee gave Mississippi 31,820 and received back 19,632, North Carolina drew from Tennessee 41,918, and South Carolina has received from Ten nessee 11,698. Texas has taken more from us than any ether State-83,158. Tennessee conscripted mostly from Virginls, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi. Shegave p her clllsens to Arkansas, Kentucky, Illi nois, Missouri, Mississippi and Texas." The London Telegraph, In an article on the late Hcrr Laskcr, saysi "Herr Laiker never married, and In Germany it was always believed, indeed it was openly stated, that this circumstance was due to his excessive modesty of disposition. Yet the man who was said to tremble before the beings lie loved on more than one occasion summoned courage to beard l'rince Bismarck In his fiercest moment All the world knows that the l'rince is a hard and unspaltlng hitter; and his enemies declare that he does not hesitate sometimes to strike below the belt. He held Herr Laskcr in special aversion, and he did not conceal, on every occasion, his arrogant Junker impatience of finding his policy ar raigned by this retiring and exact lawyer. It is not improbable that the irrepressible rude ness with which, unfortunately, l'rince Bis msrek can treat an antagonist, had something to do with the temporary retirement of Herr Lssker from the political scene." Ukcently a lot of stock was captured by the custom authorities on the Hlo Grande Laredo, which a band of smugglers were ttemptlng to cross over into Texas. Klevcn In all of the gang have been arrested, and some of the propeily was released by Colonel Nelson I'lato, Collector, upon proper repre sentation of the owners of prool of ownership. This action has been the cause of creating a tone of excellent good international feeling, because the Mexican owners had almost be lieved it was useless to make a claim for their stolen horses and mules, when seized as smuggled, and through this action of the United States Government officials, a general good feeling along the border has been de veloped. The Light understands that this policy will be continued, and further that the officials intend in every instance of theft and smuggling, to visit swift punishment upon the smugglers of stock, and will release promptly the properly to owners for exportation home, upon proof by reputable and responsible claimants. This is the right policy, and it is hoped that a reciprocity of interest in this re gard will manifest itsell in Mexico. Hie op portunity exists for an outcome of much good with respect to this matter, and since it was started so well on the American side, let Mexico, through her officials, evidence her disposition in the same direction towards our people. Then the officers can jointly protect the revenue and commerce on the Kio Grande. Such an international policy will hasten a solution of all the border dilieultics in the custom service, and redound to the comity of nations. CITATION BYPUBLICATION.
