Entered nt pnstnfilcc at San, Antoiim, ir second-class matter. Thursday, April 17. 1884. Xr.ono rapists and murderers itro far ing badly In Texas of late. The Hubbard City Nowa says -Mnrlon Martin's boom was planted In tbo wrong time of tho moon, and was wilted before It bad time to leaf out. Tin Austin Statesman Is rapidly com ing to the front as one, of the lively In teresting papers of tho State, and Col onel Bartow's snap and vim pervades every page. In tiik wny of Presidential booms, Maine's seems to be theboomcstnt the present moment, judging from the tele graphic reports received from all over the country. ( California Democrats have gone to New York-,tbrough a delegatlon,to have x conference with Jlr. Tlldcn, for tho purpose of Inducing lilm to be the can didate of the party. Tm: I.ongvlew Democrat, In com menting on an item In tbo Galveston Print that only one Ifeptiblican paper was needed In the State says, "and that ono should be tbe San Antonio Light." SuKitirK McCall Is ono ahead of the grand jury on the Sunday law question, and comes out of tho prosecution with a Jury vindication. But it Is In order for the grand Jury to try it over again and have some method In tho form of tho indictments. Tins pearl of truth is from the Austin Statesman: "Had the itepubllcan lead ers of Texas been more Intent on win ning converts to Republican principles, and less devoted to personal ambitions and selfish schemes, the Democratlo majority had not been half as large as1 it Ii to-day." That great Journeyman political pa triot, Mr. Ben Butler, comes to the front as the standard bearer of the great American Greenbaok or National party. The man who wrote the book "81" pre dicting that Ben would be the nominee of the Democratlo party, bad better try his hand on another one. The advocacy of the destruction of the Vaudeville theatre by Interior editors is still the subject of many articles, and is a matter that may be nil right as to theory, but it no doubt would be a llttlo off as to practice. To save unnecessary worry on their part the statement can be made that the Vaudeville will no doubt be taken care of by tho local authorities, and if there is any wiping out to do they will cheerfully do it. SrKAKiNa or the tariff question tho VIcksburg Herald says: "To-day no man can say whether tbe Democratlo party has any opinion on the subject, or, If It has, that It will maintain It. Thla cowardly trilling with a great question will greatly lessen tho chances of the party in the Presidential contest. It will lose It the yotes of vast numbers in favor of tariff reform, while it will not gain It the votes of any Protectionists, for the Itepubllcan party is boldly com mitted to protection." "The Presidential campaign won't open until tbe nominations aro made," says the Dubuque Times, "but while the candidates havo yet to be evolved, the people are doing a good deal of quiet thinking. Tbe more they reflect the stronger will tbe Itepubllcan cause be come. The election of a Itepubllcan candidate means the continuation of prosperity. The election or a Demo cratlc President means the adoption or i totally unknown polloy, which will be dictated by a party which has steadily ujiponeu me present polloy." A few days ago the LiaiiT received an elegant wedding card nnnnnnnW tin. marriage of Mr. A. C.Scurlock and ills Jlay Lorance, both of Cleburne. Tho card was laid aside for future reference, for at the moment the t.ihmt ,11,1 nnt tumble to the fact that it was Brother Bcurtoolf, editor of the Cleburne Chron lcle, who bad assumed the title role of benedict. The Liairr wishes him and his bride a world of happiness and a nrosnerltv unbounded, and mnv t),r shun the rocks and whirlpools which nave proved the wreck of others' hopes, auu. mo dicuiuk ui me ue as origuc the present inilioatcs; The following is from the Iron Age : "Philadelphia, at tho present time, is the largest manufacturing city In tbo world, not excepting Manchester, Eng land. Tho number of Its manufactories are said to exceed 30,000 and the number of operatives In various occupations aro computed at 200,000. .Most of these are of good Intelligence, and aro well posted on gencrnl topics. Philadelphia In par ticular, and In fact tho State of Pennsyl vania derives its prosperity from tho manufacturing Interests, and the peoplo are altvo to tho tariff question. The working men of Pennsylvania aro not likely to support any political party that favors freo trade, which would eventu ally place them on tho samo level as European pauper labor." 'Notwithstanding tho assertions and dismal predictions," says tbe Austin Capital, "made by tho great and good cattlo men and a few green and g(rasy Journals that no lands would bo leased at tho Increased price, nearly three fourths of tho quantity disposed of nt the .January sitting of tho board has been leased and will bo awarded to-day. Over 000,000 acres nre to bo awarded to day, the annual rental In which will ex ceed $50,000, an excess over tbo ninount received nt tho January award, and be fore the prices were raised from 1 to 8 cents of about $20,000. The average prlco paid this time per acre Is 9. '1-1 cents to lcaso and $2 10 to purchase. Tho action of tho Land board has been more than Gnstnlncd. Bids have been received from 31 counties."
