MP. Bremond's Views Dlscussed
rtemorks on tho Narrow
Guago noad, Etc.
Editor gin Antonio I.lebt:
gin With reference to the Interview
yonr reporter Itntt with Jtr. Tnul lire
mond, and the views expressed by that
gentleman, 1 would oOer a few facts
which are contrary to those stated by
Mr. Iiremoml. I hare lived In
Houston for 10 years, and ven
ture to assert 1 nm well posted
on all public, mntlera of that city.
In the first plncc. Mr. Bremond's state
ment that the bulk of the business was
transferred to the coast, I would stato
that Clinton, the terminus, Is the same
place that It was Ave years ago, consist
ing of a lager beer saloon (possibly It
rejoices In two now), one boarding
house and a grocery store, all of which
do a big business for flvo minutes when
the steamers discharge their cargo, the
balance of the business, tho compressing
'of cotton, the forwarding and all the
other commercial Interests arc centered
at Houston. It has considerably dam
aged the trade of Galveston, but has
afforded a cheap outlet to New York
and New Orleans. Cotton that was for
merly sent to Qalveston Is now sent to
Houston and forwarded from that point
to Its ultimate destination. Ilegardlng
the question of the comparative
safety of narrow and broad
Saugo roads, and Mr. llremond's
lustration of the superior safety of
fered by a narrow gauge by stating that
In six years they have not killed a single
passenger Is duo to the faot that the
line of road carries so few passengers,
and It Is next to Impossible to kill any.
It belncr slninlv a frelirlit road and hauls
lumber for the greater portion of
It Is not a fact that the.broad gauge
would cost so much more than
the narrow gauge, because the proposed
line of road runs through a smooth coun
try, where swampy districts are un
known, whereas In Houston It was
found necessary to expend a large
amount of capital In grading and making
road-beds. My motto Is, and one that
every citizen that desires prosperity for
San Antonio should unanimously adopt,
"On to the Gulf."
THE FOREIGN VOTE.
And the Inconsistencies ot the
Editor Baa Antonio Light I
It Is amusing as well as Instructive to
observe the arts and devices resorted to
by the Democrats (so-called) to obtain
the votes of foreign-born citizens. They
run Ireland In Texas for Governor, not
withstanding the faot that he was a
now Nothing;, but they howl like a
pack of coyotes about Blaine's having
been a Know Nothing. It will be a
beautiful sight to see the foreign born
citizens In Texas vote against Blaine be
cause he Is charged with being a Know
Nothing In 18.15, and vote for Ireland
who was a Know Xothlng.
Another Demooratlo dodge is to rep
resent Blaine to be in favor of prohibi
tion, and to tell Oerman citizens that
they cannot vote for him. Here in
Texas the Democrats have given the
people prohibition In broken doses in
local option laws, which rest on the
very same foundation with the Maine
law, that a mere majority of the voters
can prescribe what men may eat and
drink in a beat or county. The Sunday
laws in Texas are prohibitory.
It Is a fact known to all well-informed
men. that Coneress has no nower under
the Constitution to enact a prohibitory
law, ana, t nit lor mat reason, it is aoso
lutely of no consequence whether the
President favors or opposes prohibition.
His hands are tied bv the Constitution
to approve a prohibitory law. It is In the
nature oi a ponce regulation, anu out
line oi ine oruit oi tue general uovern'
Our German citizens are cool-headed
and reflecting men, seldom acting from
the Impulse of sudden passion, but from
reason and conviction. They were all
opposed to slavery upon principle, and
they know the Democratla Dartv was
pro-slavery, and that the' Republicans
brought emancipation to pass. They
also realize that In liberating the negroes
the Itepubllcans emancipated poor
white men from the thraldom of the
slaveocracy. The German voter will
not be caught with Demooratlo chair.
A MIXED TICKET.
A Correspondent's Suggestion to
Editor Ban AntouloLlihtl
No political organization can ever
' And It profitable to set common sense at
defiance, and Invite defeat by Its own
unadulterated folly. The Itepubllcans
In Texas are In a woful minority, and
very likely to continue so unless they
add the wisdom of the serpent to the
harnuessness of the dove,
The running of a straight-out Repub
lican ticket for State offices will be
spunky, but very foolish, and will only
serve to consolidate the angry and war
ring ructions Inside the Democratto
party, anu pue up anoverwneiming ma
lorlty against the Jtepenucans,
straight-out Itepubllcan State' ticket
cannot carry Texas for Itself nor for
Illalne. Common sense, then, asks, why
rcnit? What benefit will accrue from
It? None whatever. It wilt begin as a
farce' and end as a fizzle. It will be
ridiculous from the start.
Mv Idea Is. that 'half a loaf Is better
far than no bread at all In the matter of
food and id polltloa.
Urn! trail, .fnnns received tho entire
Itepubllcan vote In 1832, he would have
come very near beating Ireland, but he
lacked 30,000 of getting the full Itepubll
can vote. Should ho run now be would
poll 40,000 Demooratlo votes which ho
did not receive In 1882, and he stands an
excellent chance of being elected Gov
ernor over Ireland.
Then Major ltichanlion can beat
Raker for Superintendent of l'ubtlo
Schools. Buck Walton can defeat Tern
pleton like a flash nardly leavo a grease
spot of him.
My Idea Is to obey the dictates of com
mon sense by taking advantage of the
opportune split In the Demooratlo party.

MR. BLAINE AND THE IRISH.
His Position Whllo Secretary of
IMllorFnn Anli nlo Mint.
The attack of Mr. Peter Shields on
James 0. Illalne Is alike uncalled for and
unjust. Mr. Blaine entered npon the
duties of Secretary of State, March J,
1SS1, and President Garfield was shot In
July, If I recollect aright, and from the
time ne was snot up to nis ucatu, tuere
was practically speaking, an Interreg
num of the Government, on account of
the head of It belngdlsabled. Mr.Peter
Shields ought to know that a Secretary
of State Is not independent of the Presi
dent; thai he cannot carry out such a
foreign policy as suits him, but Is bound
to carry out the foreign policy marked
out by tho President. President Gar
field was responsible for the foreign
policy of the Government from March 4,
1881 to July, and not his Secretary of
State, James G. Blaine ; and no ono was
responsible during tho time President
Garfield was languishing from the
effects of the bullet of the assassin.
After Arthur camo Into tbe Presi
dency on September 10th, 1SSI,
he became responsible for the foreign
oucy oi tne government, jur. leier
Shields ousht to have known these facts
and ought to have given them tbe weight
to which they are rightfully entitled.
These facts vindicate Mr. Blaine from
the blame, which Mr. Peter Shields
labors so hard to attach to htm. The
President settles and determines the
foreign policy which tbe United states
will pursue, and the Secretary of State
Is bound to carry out this polloy. Pres
ident Arthur Is tbe son of an Irishman,
and presumably more friendly to Ireland
than to England. Mr. Blaine was In the
office of Secretary of State less than nine
months, and during part of that period,
from July 2 to September 19 two months
anu 1 uays tue government was de
prived of Its head by the physical dis
ability of President Garfield to discharge
his duties. The Secretary of State of
Texas Is not accountable for tho
policy of Governor Ireland. No
more Is the Secretary of State
accountable for the foreign policy
of the United States. In the recogni
tion of this fact lies the completo vin
dication of Mr. Blaine from tbe criti
cisms of Mr. Peter Shields.
The truth is Mr. Blalno and President
Arthur were not In accord while he re
mained In the Cabinet of tbo latter, and
soon after he retired President Arthur
changed the foreign policy which Presi
dent Garfield had mapped out, and coun
termanded the Instructions which he
had approved In November, 1881, to the
ministers, of the United States to tbe
South American governments, A Sec
retary of State Is handicapped by the
President, who alone has the constitu
tional right to fix and mark out the for
eign polloy ot the United States, and,
as Mr. Blaine was Secretary of State
only about six months (deducting the
time intervening between July 2 and
September 10) It Is extremely unjust to
attempt to hold him accountable for
matters over which bo had no control.
It Is extremely doubtful If any
adopted citizen of Irish Dlrth was
unlawfully imprisoned by the British
Government during the time Mr. Blaine
was Secretary of State. If adopted cit
izens of the United States return to their
native country, they mutt deport them
selves In a peaceable and lawful manner.
Should they engage In plots against tbe
Government they forfeit all right to
claim protection from tbe United States.
This Is the pivotal question where a na
tive or adopted oltlzen of tbe United
States claims tbe protection of the Gov
ernment airalnst a forelcn Government.
But Mr. Peter Shields asserts that Mr.
Blaine was a Know-Nothing 30 years
ago, and for that reason adopted citi
zens cannot vote for him. Let us see
whether Mr. Shields acts up to his
preachment. Governor Ireland was a
Know-Nothing, but Mr. Shields Is
doubtless colntr to vote for him and
wants all adopted citizens to vote for
him also. Why make suchn dlfierence?
If having been a Know-Nothing disen
titles Mr. Blaltte to the votes of adopted
citizens by tbe same token It should
have tbe same effect on Governor Ire
land. I leave Mr. Shields to reconcile
this blowing hot and cold about Know-
.-Noinings. j, ji,
