This year - all railroad and transportation compa nies .should be enjoined, from, bringing Into this State any oattle from the soueu ule dlslrlots, unless the shipment Is ac companied by a clear bill of health, and have not come from an Infected belt or the country within sixty daya prior to the Shipment. Daytox. August . rue somiers- Home conirresslonal Investigating com mittee convened this morning, continu ing the examination of witnesses, une testimony revealed dives or infamy, In to which soldiers are inveigled, robbed and sometimes murdered. Many of the resorts are out of the corporate limits ot Dayton, and seem to be out of the juris diction or the law. Even those within the city are not molested by the author ities, and compare with any or the most depraved in the large cities. Many sol diers come to Dayton, become drunk and disorderly, are arrested, removed to tbe home and there punished, Repre sentative MoMahon said the universal complaints from the soldiers pointed to harsh treatment. Under tho rules and articles of war they were treated as In a garrison, and should bo treated as In a home. Politics had caused a change of management, and all changes In the rules and discipline were charged by the soldiers uirect to iub reprcaeiuauc. Gunkle, former resident manager, said the soldiers complained universally or strict discipline and unjust punishment. Tliey wanted somo one to compiainiu, but dared not lay tholrgrlevances before General M. 11. Patrlok, governor of tho home. This would be obviated by resi dent managers; but Colonel Harris, the present resident manager, lived in Cin cinnati, and tho soldiers could not see him but once a year. It Is believed the home should be more of a hospital than a garrison. The soldiers nad done ineir work, and this should be a reward. The disorder outside could be dealt with as other disorderly citizens are. THE SECOND GAME. The Sunsets Defeated From tho First Inning. The second of the three games be tween the Sunsets and Galvestons was called at S o'clook yesterday afternoon with about tbreo hundred persons on tbe ground, and the Galvestons went to the bat. As one of the visitors started to the bat he remarked, "Now, boys, let's play ball, and do them up in ele gant style," and sure enough they did, scoring six runs before they were sent to the field. It was soon evident that this virtually decided tbe game, as It was odda that could not he overcome by tbe best playing our boys could do, nnd they put In their best licks to retrieve their lost ground. From tbe llrst Inning the game was evenly and hotly contested, each club making two runs in the other eight In nlngs. The two clubs seem to be toler ably evenly matched, though tho Gal vestons show evidenoe of more prac tico than tbe Sunsets, and have their men better In hand. The Sunsets are the heaviest batters, and have.the best material for base runners, but the Galvestons show evidences of more care In that respect. They also have their field well covered and bases well protected. There was no special feature of their play yesterday, yet the entire nine played In excellent style, Tbe same players In tho home club car ried the honors yesterday that did In Sunday's game. Davis at first base Is one in a hundred, and his play Is so cool and even that elicits admiration from all. The deciding game will be played this afternoon, and while San Antonlans naturally desire to see tbe home club successful. It Is hard to tell which club will carry off the honors. It Is stated that two of the best players of the Gal veston club were necessarily absent during the last two games, but have ar rived and will take part In the game this evening. Should this be tbe ease, It may turn tbe scales or victory In favor of inem. However, our uoys nre piuoKy and have confidence in their ability to down their opponents should they meet wuu no misuap.

The Iletboven club rendered "Wenn das Atlant'sche Meer, Lauter champanger waer," which was responded to by the New Orleans club with Meln Herz thilt slch nuf Dassder Fruehllng dreln lacht," nnd as an encore gave "Eln treue s Hera eln trautes Hera."

Tbe railroad to tbe nearest point on the Gulf Is not quite finished yet, but doubtless will be before old Chrysler performs his ablutions, or tbe Alamo monument Is erected.

It was a wag of the produce exchange who the other day employed profes sional agencies to make a jocose effect on his fellow members. Tho exchange has a magnificent new building, but the business that they are doing In It thia summer Is unprecedented In dullness. However, they are not disposed to mope and pine. On the contrary, they are abnormally frisky. Practical JokeBtbere reach a high degree of elaboration. The present fashion In this line Is to do as tonishing things with perfect gravity. If the joke can startle a knot of fellows by some outre feat, he Is delighted; 'but If tbe Joked persons manage to maintain composure, thus seeming to be uncon scious that anything funny Is being done to them, the victory Is conceded to belong to them. Now, there Is a bar on the premises. There Is going to be a fight about It, be cause some of the members object to a connection with the liquor trattlo, even In the capacity of landlords; but as yet the bar-room remains, and It Is by no means a lonesome apartment. A humor ous memuer ot tue exchange, wuo occu pies one or the many oflloes or the build ing, was struck with au Ideaforaunlque Joke, and to realize It he hired four of the curiosities from n Bowery dime mu seum. At a time in the afternoon when leisure and thirst Bend many to the bar, he sauntered In. He had placed Ml back lazily against the' counter when a three-foot dwarf Joined him. The two shook, hands cordially, asked each other ,,how., thoy were, and fell 'Into conversation. All eyes were fixed on the little man until E. L. Hawk received word while at the San Francisco Republican conven tlon on Friday last, from his ranch near llocklln, that the army worm had ap peared there In great numbers and that Ids presence was required there Imme diately. He therefore abandoned his light for Auditor nnd Recorder, and lelt io uo name wuu tne army worm, The worms have appeared near Penryn loan f rancisco nironicic. Blaine's Luck. A meeting of the subscribers fur stock tbe San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railway company was held In the Dis trict court room yesterday evening, hen on the meeting being called to or- r. Hen. J. Maucrmann was elected to the chair, Dr. M. Lindner fulfilling tho office of secretary. Tho Chairman In formed the meeting that Capt. C. II. Merrllt would explain to them the work that had been performed by the com- Ittee. Capt. C. II. Merrltt said the meeting had been called tor tho purpose or ob taining the S per cent, collection on tho stock subscribed for, nnd he suggested tho advisability or tbe Secretary calling the roll and as each name w as called the subscriber should pay the assessment. Capt. Merrltt also Informed the meeting lhat Mr. Sam Maverick had been elected temporary Treasurer. C. H. Clifford said there were two propositions In law In which Captain Merrltt was entirely wrong one propo sition that the B percent, had right then to be paid In, there lie was In the wrong. 1 tie appointment or Mr. Maverick was also an error. There has been too much humbug and shilly-shallying about the affair that will eventually kill It. He knew of an instance where a gentleman had been offered $1000 to throw cold water upon the organization. Let them organize Immediately, nnd If they could not get enough to build tbe whole road, then let 10 miles of It be built. Captain Merrltt said he might be con si-'ered an old fogy, but be liked to be on tl - sale side, and he tlioueht tlx onlv safe way was the old-fashioned one of Having tue money paid up, lie uiu not doubt but that the road could be built and tbe funds obtained. Dr. Lindner was then requested by the Chairman to Inform the meeting or the money subscribed. In response inereio or. j.inuner saiu mere were $170,000 collectable subscriptions, ex clusive or donations and uncollectable subscriptions. Tbe subscription roll was men cnuea anume numerous stock holders tendered their checks or cash until tbe Treasurer had $3,701 In his hands. The amount required Is $7,000, tne Daiance or wuicn win nave ucen nald before tho end or the week. Mr. J. C. Howard said he wanted to entertain the meeting during tbe pro gress or receiving subscriptions, and went off Into one or bis well known ejaculatory, disconnected, shrieking speeches, convulsing the audience with lautrnter. While the subscriptions were being nald the Chairman nroceeded to appoint a committee on cnarter, consisting oi jieairs. muiRiii n. jiavericK, u. ji. Clifford and D. C.
