"Han Antonio's moral wave," Is tlio way Ilia outslrio bnrlinrlnni speak of tlio Krantl Jury report. Tiik Jlcxln Ledger compliments the l.imirln tlie Bcntence, "Tlio Sin Anto nio I.iiiiit Is ono of 1 lie clenncst Jtcpubll ean rliects In tlio United States." "If tiik Democratic party," says the Henderson Times, "refuses to to Ircforo t lie people on the tarM" Issue, It will be Utility of cowanltco most culpable and will not deserve success." (r is refreshing to read tliattlicrc Is no split among the Ualveston Itepubllenns, and that when It comes to thomnln Issue they will act In concert.and ir such is the ease tlio recent wrangle regarding local primaries was altogether un necessary. "Wiikx a inurdtr occurs in Texas," says the Galveston Trlnt, "It devclopes very rapidly and by the time tlio news reaches Wisconsin It has become a wholesale massacre and lnoludes a w hole settlement. We read In a Xorthern exchange that tlio streets of San Antonio recently resembled rivers of gore." Tiik Dalngcrlleld Herald tells of a ball storm that visited Morris oounty on Holiday night last, which ruined all tho fruit trees, destroyed all vcge.tatlon, knocked holes In tho roofs of houses and killed and maimed birds, chickens, pigs and young calves. The storm lasted about 15 minutes and many of the stones were as largo as goose eggs. Tiik St. Louis Chronicle has the fol lowing good words for Ochiltree : "Con gressman Oohlltree Is a llepubllcan, he baa red hair, ho comes from Texas and he has a reputation which puts Mun chausen's to the blush, ycthls speech on the Laskcr resolutions last week as It appears In the Congressional liccoril Is as good a speech as could have been made by any man In Congress. Mr. Ochiltree Is ovldently not so lurid by a shado or two as bo has been painted." Tiik Thlladclphla Itccord, a genuinely Independent paper.says that the llepub llcan convention at Chicago can not avoid recognition of the; great merits and success of Arthur's administration. "Having done this," says the Record, "it will be a hazardous venture In the convention to mako an experiment on the temper of tho country with some candidate whose fitness for the dis charge of the duties and responsibilities of the Presidential trust Is not known." Tue new born hostility to the two thirds rule by n portion of the liourbon party must have had Its birth In the I'onvlctlon that Governor Ireland could not obtain a two-thirds vote, and could only be nominated by a majority. Tho Lioiit believes that Ireland can be de feated. No fence cutter sympathizer will Tote fbrlilin, under any circum stances, and the stockmen aro consid erably disgruntled. The liourbon press Is too blind to realize the fact that Ireland will be on the defensive from the start. It is told of a man who onco made an Immenso fortune by attending to his own business, and the same thing Is ap plicable to those or the papers of tho Stale who are publishing bloodthirsty and sanguinary editorials to have some body rise up In majestic Indignation and wlpo tho Vaudevlllo theatre of San An tonio from oft" tho facoof the earth. Tho laws in San Antonio are enforced, on an average, about as well as any other olty of Its size, ami ollenders am lirm,vi,t Justice as quickly, and If tho minding of one a own Business Has any meaning at all, it can bo applied to the outside press, on this particular subject. Tiik Corslcana Courier discusses the two-third rule as follows: "The two thirds rule Is causing a great deal of dis cussion in Texas Just now, and the pa perearo arraying themselves on either Bide, ono party claiming tho two-thirds rule belongs toon effete past and none but tho ring men and cliques wish It re tained. Tho other sldo maintains that the manybo objects to the two-thirds rule is no Democrat, but a Radical In disguise and Democracy Is not In liim. So fur as that goes ono Democrat In Toxas Is Just as good ns another, two thirds rule or no two-thirds rule; but In tho light of expediency mid common fairness tlio two-thirds mlo might bo abolished. Hut whether It Is or Is not abolished, there wilt stilt bo kickers who will raise tho sanio growl under nny circumstances," Tiik Xow York Times, speaking of the tnrllV question and tho Democracy, says : "Tho two factions of the bemo cratlc party In the House locked horns In caucus last night. The strugglo lasted somo hours. Mr. Morrlron car ried a resolution that mean nothing. It provides for the discussion of tho Ways and Means bill In t'ommitlco of tho Whole, for Its Indefinite amendment for tlio passage of 'a' bill. This nonsensical resolution was then declared not to bo binding on tho party unless Individual members chose to bo bound by It. Mr. Carlisle emphasized tho emptiness of tho proceedings by securing the passage of a resolution providing for the repeal of the tax on tobacco and the reduction of the tax on fruit brandy to 10 cents per gallon. Plainly tbo Democrats bavo been so long accustomed to follow blind ly, though at a long llstance,tn tho steps of the Republicans, that tboy lmvo lost the power of independent action. They bavo thrown away tho only Issue on which they could go to the country, nnd have elected to enter tho canvas on their merits. It would save them expense and trouble If they did not enter It at all." The Cincinnati all'alr Is one of the rcmarkablo freaks of mob law and shows to what extent frenzy nnd the wild spirit of rebellion can go. -That 10,000 men enn be found In one mob, wild, turbulent, reckless alike of llfo nnd property,, who boldly defy nnd fight the authorities, Is ono of the peculiarities of the times and shows how little tho la n-s are respected when the will of the populaco Is aroused. The exhibition of mob law and violence mado In Cincinnati was caused by ajury which returned a verdict of man slaughter against n man who admitted that ho with another murdered the vic tim. Tho verdict was rendered on tho morning of tho 21th Instant, and was declared by the judgo who tried tho case to bo an outrage. Kirk, the man mur dered, wns killed In his stablo by a blow of a hammer and robbed of $100, put Inn wagon and dumped Into Mill creek, where his body was afterwards found. Joo l'alnicr and William Itcrner con fessed that they did tho murder nnd rob bery, nnd on the trial Ilerner testified that Palmer did tho actual killing, while he only looked on and got bis share of tho money. Tho verdict was universally condemned, and tho more it was dis cussed tho more the people became Inflamed, until In their desire to avenge outraged law they called a mass meeting at tbo Cincinnati Muslo hall on Friday last, and adopted strong resolutions condemning the verdict, and then It was oniy a moment as it were, until 1 lie raid was mado upon tbo county Jail, In order to wreak vengeance upon tho mur derer. Unfortunately tbo olllccrs bad run tho murderer oil to the penitentiary, and the mob was slmnlv a wnve of vio lence and passion, where tho lives of scores oi men were sacntlceil that a be lief In Justine might bo maintained. In somo respects the boasted civilization of tho 19th century Is a travlsty, nnd espe cially tho law regarding tho punishment of crime. Tho 6ooner wo get back to that old Mosalo law of an cyo for an eyo and a tooth for a tooth, tho sooner will our civilization be advanced and justice be vindicated, and there will bo no oc casion for tho thrilling scenes Just enact ed In Cincinnati. From French Philosophers. The attractions of woman nre not In the ensemble but in tho details. Whlto hairs are tho foam points which cover the sea after tho tempest. The heart causes us to do stupid things; the hand makes us avoid them. It is of love as of soup; tho firstspoon fuls are too hot, the last too cold. To beliovo that you aro loved for your self Is the height of human folly. Prldo Is a bad counselor, but a suro friend; It obliges us to consider the judg ment of others. Give money, but do not lend any; to give makes persons only ungrateful, while to lend makes them enemies. If wo could glvo as ohnrity, to thoso who employ it well, tho tlmo that wo waste, how many beggars would be rich. What is wanting In woman Is tho in termediate sentiment between love and hate; she knows nothing of that weapon of tho strong man, Indifference. Holding on to a Buffalo's Tail. mil Njro. Fow people have the moral courage to follow a buffalo around over a half a day hoMlncr on by the tall. It Is s.ilil that n Sioux brave once tried It, and thoy say nisiracKS were r.i miles apart. After merrily saunterfnir around with th buf falo ono hour, during which time ho jerriiories oi Wyoming and Dakota twice and surrounded tho regu lar army three times, ho became discour sed ami iIIai! from l, lnt..ina received. Perhaps, however, It may mm uccu unique, it inigm ue possiUlo lor a man to catch bold of the meagre tall of a meteor and let It snatch liim through tho coming years. It might bo that a man with a strong constitution could catch a cyclone and rldo It bare back across the United States and then bavo a fresh ono to rldo back again, but to oatoh a butlalo bull in the full flush of manhood, as It were, and retain his tnll while he crosses three reservations nnd two mountain ranges, requires great tenacity of purpose nnd unusual mental equipoise.
