TIIOMAM II. JOHNSON, llimlnrns Manager. Saturday, March 22, 1884. Tim papers Soulli mid West report Hint Hie ruins of the Inst two weeks lisivo been (iiille general, anil give promise that good crops will follow. Tin: Mexican Central road will bo open for trallio on tlio Ilrst of April and Pullman Palace cars will run through to the City of .Mexico after MaJ-1. Tiik President has not yet sent In the nominations for Judge, Marshal aid District Attorney for the Eastern dis trict, as has been frequently stated of late. Major Dmyf.h reports that ho has about S'J.WIO on hand towards tho .Schleicher monument, and that the cotnmlttco will soon select a model nnd award the contract for a proper monu ment. Tiik News says, "John Ireland Is not the persimmon of Texas politics by n long tliot." Hut It looks powerfully like he has tho pole that will reach the Democratic persimmon of the State con vention. Mr. Hkmiy YVat-ikii-ov asserts that If tho Morrison bill on the tariff question Is not endorsed by the Pennsylvania Dem ocrats, that the party Is In peril, and lla failure means the defeat and possibly th,i dissolution of tho Democratic party. A ciirsAUK has been commenced In tho East and South against swinging signs as being extremely dangerous and unsafe In any kind or windy weather. The Limit Is of the opinion that tho befet swinging sign Is a good advertise ment In a popular newspaper. Tin: Kxprcm says It was the "only paper In the State that persistently de nounced Hen Thompson's lawlessness while he was alive." lien Is very dead now. Hut when tho Austin correspon dent of the Kxpress was chased all around that city liy tho Into Mr. Thomp son, Its readers failed to sec a single sen tence in tho editorial columns of that paper In tho defense or tho corresondent. Tin; Dcmocratlo leaders in tho House at Washington are In a very much mixed condition as regards tho Monlson bill, and with liandall's threatened bolt It looks like tho usual Dcmocratlo blunder Is to be made. Tho tarlll'queBtlon Is ono on which that party Is most positively divided, and while tho freo trado wing will no doubt carry tho Morrison bill In the caucus, It will be dono at the expense of a large number of party followers. Tim Petersburg, Va., Index-Appeal, speaking of the statement that the ma jority In the lower houso of Congress needed a leader, says : "Tho majority In tho Houso needs a Democrat. Any genuine Democrat brave enough to an nounce his Democracy would Instantly become a lender, not only In the House but in a larger place. It does not matter from what section ho comes whether the Last or West, or South. So that ho has sense to understand and courage to proclaim what is really Democratic, ho w ill find recognition." "Few persons comparatively," says tho Cincinnati Times-Star, "are indif ferent to tho shafts of ridicule. If his claims are allowed, Congressman Tom Ochiltree is one of the few. Ho says 'tho boys' are nrperiect liberty to 'havo their fun' with blm. This gives evi dence that tho great Texan has a large supply of everyday philosophy which brings cheer amid tho cares and vexa tions Incident to tho pursuit of politics. Hut Tom draws tho line at fun making. His philosophy stops there. He Inti mates strongly that If any man calls him 'a d-d fool' there wilt bo a funeral. Prince Illsmarck, as will as tho crowd Indefinitely termed 'tho boys,' should tako notice." Tiik general expression of newspapers and publlo men Is that the completion or tho Mexican Central to tho City or Mex ico will greatly increase tho trade be tween the two llepublics. Tho value of precious metals exported by Moxlco to tho United States in 18K1 was nlniit $1),OUO,000, nnd during tho samo year she exported to England gold nnd silver amounting to about $10,000,000, while the vnluo of merchandise sent to the United States and England was $10,000, OOO. Under the provisions of tho reci procity treaty all kinds of machinery, vehicles, agricultural implements, tools, etc., iiinnufiictitretl In the United States will bo admitted Into Mexico free of duty; and It is safe to say Hint such Im ports will bo of a most extended volume, and will bo the menus Jif thornpld de velopment of Hint Hepiiblle. Tin: Xew Vork Times enys : "Prince Illsmarck has Invited Minister Sargent to dinner, and what Is more, Hie .Minis ter has accepted the Invitation. I'wallily the fiKit that Mr. Sargent consenls to dine w ith the "Iron Chancellor" mny displease some of those eminent pub licists who will be satlslied with noth ing short of the Minister's sending n challenge to the Chancellor. Neverthe less, as an invitation to dine Is always considered as a Hag of truco between combatants and a probable leading up to a composing of existing dllllcultlcs, we limy hopo for peace between the United States Minister and Prince Illsmarck. Tho bitterest of feuds may bo adjusted over a good dinner, and It Is likely that lllsuiarck has made up his mind to call oil' his dogs, forget his sciatica nnd behave like n Jolly good fellow, who can inakehlmseir ngreeablo when ho will." Tin: Washington correspondent or the Hoston Traveler writes an elaborate let ter, giving It as his views that President Arthur Is now by far the most probable nominee. After discussing the various candidates, their points of strength and weakness, ho reviews the dllluscd nnd universal strength of Ocneral Arthur In nearly or quite every State, nnd sums up by saying: "There Is no denying tho fact that President Arthur's candidacy grows stronger ovcry day. Tho leaders of tho party nre beginning to see that he Is tho only man who can enter tho con test next fall backed by n solid following of tho rank and lllc of tho organization. Against tho other candidates exist ob jections that they represent some pecu liar clique or strlpo or Iteptibllcnnlsin, but the fact that none or these objec tions are, or can bo, applied to the Pres ident makes him tower above them all us the safest, wisest and most Judicious selection that can bo made for a Na tional standard bearer." JrixiK ItixKi.iiv, of Sherman, is the most prominently spoken of candidate for the Kcptibllcan rnco for Governor of nny other liepiihlicnii in the State lie Ih thoroughly idcntlilcd with the interests of tho State, nnd while ho may, In some respects, lead a forlorn hope, yet much could bo accomplished, in a party sense, with him ns the leader. The Indications, now arc that he will have moro than the party following In tlio northern part of the State by reason or his wldo acquain tance and great personal popularity, and among tho number mentioned undoubt edly takes tho lead. On the subject the Corslcana Courier says: "iri perfected organization desires It, Judge Hlnkley will certainly accept Hie nomination and make a spirited caiivnss, as he Is perfectly able, financially and Intellectually, todo. vt Itli all the Itcpubllcan, Independent and disaffected elements of the Stato united on Judge Hlnkley, his well-known personal Integrity and pleasant public relations with every one, he would make a respectable showing In this presldcn tlalyear, when itepubllcans never wnrer. Another thing Is, perhaps. In his favor. The cattle men have been somewhat alienated from the present administra tion, and Judgo Hlnkley Is on tlio most friendly terms with tho leading cattle men and could count on a good support from them, n great many of whom aro themselves strong Itepublicnns from tho North. Ono thing is certain : The Ite publlcans of Texas, whlto and black, aro ready to unlto on Judgo Hlnkley; the other things (conjectures) nro yet to be worked out. The colored Itepubllcans all over the Stato are getting thoroughly organized, and they nro solid for Hlnk ley. Next month will settle tho ticket, mm tuen the pnrty will get down to work."
