TllOMAH II. JOHNSON,
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
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
