TIIOMAM II. JOHNSON,
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
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
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,
