A Monument Should bo Erected In Memory of Us Heroes, niltor Light. Although my feeble words may pro duce no more ell'ect upon tho people of Texas than would n zephcron tho Alps. I wish to set before them the obligation, which thoy nro under to erect a suitable mcmnrlnlto tho heroes or tho Alamo, whoso heroism Is beyond nil "Greek nil Itoiunn fame." This memorial should bo erected on the spot, which wns con secrated by their blood, a point, none will gainsay. Itshould bo raised from tliu free will offerings o( tho people, by voluntary contributions, rather limit by the Legislature, nnd every man nnd wo man In the Statu should take n prldo In contributing to this patriotic under taking. I Invoke tho newspapers or tho Stnto to press this matter upon the public at tention, nnd urge the formation of coun ty societies to raise funds. F.vcry news paper In tho Stnto should urge nnd ad vocate this scheme, "In season anil nut of season." Such a course .would re dound to tho credit of thu press nay. would cover it wuu glory. Let us pay our debt or gratitude to tlio heroes or the Alamo and prove we nro not "degene rato sons or noble sires." Texas contains ninny citizens or wealth who should bo proud to consecrate n mlto of their wealth to so patriotic! n use, nnd even tho poorest could give a dollar to this purposo. Let each county en deavor to raise thu largest fund. I would suggest Hint so soon ns $10,000 shall bo raised, the foundation of the monument shall bu laid ami tlio work bo pushed forward ns minis now in, lor i cannot doubt but Hint they will flow in once It bo brought before the People I ngnln appeal to tlio newspapers to take this mutter In hand nnd to keep It before the puhllo by constant appeals. IjOUU.NKTTK. A FIGHT. Policeman Chadwell Assults a Hackman In the Light Offlce. In Tuesday's Liuht an Item appeared, signed "A Hack Driver," which alluded lo "tho biggest policeman In Texas." This afternoon Policeman Chadwell catiio to tho Lkiiit olllce, bringing with him Hilly Konriimph, n hack driver, and demanded that ho sign n retraction or tho item in question, at tho snmo timo calling hint all manner or hard names. An Hem retracting tho statement was written out, when Chadwell 'caught the hack man by the collar and demanded that ho sign It, which ho reriiscd to do; where upon Chadwell commenced striking him oyer tho bend, and continued pounding tho man until parties in tlio olllce took tho man awny from him, whereupon ho drew his pistol from Its scabbard nnd cocked it nnd made a remark that ho could kill some one. Haokmnn Bennett caught hold of tho pistol Just then and said, " ChAdwell, don't make a d n fool of yourseir," and took him nwny. This, In brief, is a true account of tho ullalr, and while It was only of a fow moments, duration, yet It was hardly n fair light, ns Chadwell Is muoh tho larger nmn'and had his pistol prominently displayed all tho time.
