The suppo slllou ninotH? the 20 applicants, for the posltiiastershlp of this clly, Is, that the prcent Postmaster Colonel Dedrcss.hns heen found not to have been an often slvn partisan, am that be will he al lowed to serve the remaimlerof hi. linn ofolllce out much to their disgust It expire In October. The letter of. Iiulge Kengan nmioiiiic. Ing that he would not he n candidate for Governor, was a surprise In politics! cir cles here. It Is gem rally believed that the Old Alcalde had souiclhlng to du wllh It, and luis likely set the senato rial lite tu burlug In Itengan's ear. If this supposition turns out to bo true. It will be extremely nutiseatclni? to ex. Senator Terrefl, who up to this time has expected the Old Alcalde'.! undivided support for tho I'nlled Slides Sennle, and recognizes the fact, no doubt, th.it without the aid or Huberts, that his can didacy against either Ireland or lieugan would amount to but Hill" opposition. Comptroller Swain and other gubernn- lunai camiiuaies nre scanning the move ments of the Old Alcalde closely, and ucii inieresi, nnxioiuiy waiting to See the rrslllt of the lievt , mr.lt he will steal on them. Swain Is not re garded hero as n strong eniidldalu fvr (loteruor. and It Is not nt all iinllL.-le that before the next convention meets he will he content to hold over as Comp troller. It Is generally conceded that John II. Traylor, of Hood county can be nominated for the coinptrullershlp iflie wants It, his friends say he will be In the Held. I he friends uf Mnlor J.

Luimni, Texas, August 21, 1SS3. Ailfdcniorlc;, the delimiting stih-lreasury clerk, of New Orleans, was nrresled day before yeslerday In Monterey at the In stance of Iho American Consul, Dr. Campbell, nnd put In Jail to await tho arrival of olllcers from New Orleans, who left that city Monday. If the pa pers are correct there will be no trouble about extraditing him, ns the Mexican officials are more than willing to hand him over. Only $77 of money were found on him, but dllllgent search Is being made for the balance. lUvs VlCKI.K. It wllfbe remembered that Aiifdemorle was the rcdeinpllon clerk In the suh- treasury at New Orleans, and had un usual privileges In handling moneys. On June 1 an examination or the treas ury balances was made by a special agent, when It was discovered that Auf deiuorte's account was short $2.:ti:i, and Hint he hod mysteriously disappeared. A few days later it was stated that lie had lied to Mexico, and as will be seen by the above teleejraiu was captured at Monterey, lie might Just ns well have staid In the United States as to go to Monterey, where there Is a constant ac cession of travelers from all over the country;, anu one wonders what It Is that actuates a criminal In thus defying nil laws of prudence and shrewdness In thus placing himself within the reach of ouicers vvuu a price upon his head.

Your readers hive been so recently xgnlcd Willi a livid detcrlptlnn of a kangnrno circus, which lately left your clly, I forbear to tread In Its path, or attempt lu give further detail of the ruulo It went. Mif- II ce It In snvthat what I write here is for the good of those whom It may concern. When Iho Duclorand myself boarded the train for the West wo had our vnllsis packed Inn hurry, and the Doctor left ids empty Itssk at home anil we had only 1 1 io taiintlugsmllc ofthc sennritns-the dark-ejed maids who only went as far as the Medina. When they were gone wo hail tu hunt the haunts of dull cum pounding men to kill the slow time on the International. The baggage boy sab! ho would nut tell on us, and wo take It for granted that "he, tuo, is on honorable tiiati." Wo had the good luck tu fall In with a mlsslunary, whuwasan army chaplain In the Dnctur's regiment during the late mill. This earnest divine una planting the banner of his Cod along Hie line of rail, when, hut a few short months ago nothing but chaos existed; and II seems that the prevailing element now on the Held Is hedging cactus, chappcral ami meMiilte brush. Hut these will not (Icier the missionary who goes out tu win souls nnd hunts them on the high ways, lu their tents and In the plains. When the train would slop lo deliver malls and allow tho boys time tu take n few chance shots at the Jack rabbits, Hie minister of the living religion gave out his appointments, and savsbe Mils Iheiii all, lie says that many of the churches nre sending out the poorest preachers tu the frontiers of the west, to preach tu the roving Ishmelltes ami they live humble and dress In pourslvl yet they are not fools, and Irom what we cuiihl see, I can substantiate his wnnls, He says that oflen he goes lu the ranches, vulls Iho herders at their camps and spends a guod time wllh them generally, and often Minis a slieeti her der wnn is u grail 11 ale uf Yale, anil man) young men Ilh the quirt and spur, whu are grail nates oT some college, and whose minds are alvvas open fur the convic tions uf right, nml says these men gener ally have much Intluetice In the neigh borhood w hero they live. Our preacher gave Ids name as John son, hut we could not get him to say that he was related to the Liuitr, but from a striking resemblance we think there Is a family relation somewhere. We spent one night In Iho "Dirt Oven," but might say here that owing to copi ous rains that day, Laredo was quite pleasant. Sunday was our advent Inlo the land of "caitus and chile con curne." And when the Doctor, wllh true llrlttun pride, sided up to the Ferrl C. M. N. It. It. wllh his Winchester In hand and asked the distance to Monte rey, and was told In a prompt tone that It was 271 kilometers, then nil our na tional pride went out and we felt that we were In the hnnds of the Philistines, and could be made to eat chile all our lives. We placed ourselves In charge of tho gentlemanly conductor, Webb, and sailed uttt on a fast ride for Monterey, passing throtignan open country for bo tulles. 1 nere uie grand 0111 mountains cutne in view, and 1 hoisted my hat In honor of the granite hills, whoso spires run so high against the sky that they retlect the azure litre, nnd made me think oflho splendor which ndurned the boyhood The 1 ti e nil rnad train on I no road bed and three feet track, was cutting oil kilometers nt the rate of 23 miles per hour. While we passed up the alluvial valley, between the ranging mountains on either side, up the same valley which General Taylor s army passed, till we reached Monterey, and here we rst. un der the Jutting bruws ul the spurs uf the ttocKy .Mountains in a lovely valley, amid balmy air and healthful breezes, and we think among a people wo would like and be glad tu alllllate with. Of Hie city ahd surroundings we can say more again, If too much has not al ready been said. Hut one thing I now complain of, this Is the emblem of barbarism and savagery idea of passengers, and ladles tuo, being halted on the highway and their private apparel searched for contraband Is too ridiculous, and In hope to see both na tions put a stop to it nnd let free trade and free travel be the watchword on our border. If this species of satagry was obliterated between tho two He publics, then peace would reign for gnus tocotne between us. If not tho smug gling process will involve us Into broils before long, and in the broil It will be n' case of a big boy striking a little one he cause the little fellow was winning too many marbles In a game of "craps," and tho high olliclals of the two Hepubllcs must know It's so, Kovkii. The American Billion. The standard dictionaries give the de finition of a billion thus: "According to the French method of numeration, a thousand millions; according to Hie Kn gllsli method, a million of millions." The "American billion" Is n title by courtesy, the same as tho "American language" Is sometimes spoken of for only the Kngllsh billion known, estab lished by the same law which governed United States adopted the code or com tnon law or Kmrland. and with It the En gllsli billion of a million or millions, Several years ago the French Govern ment passed a law changing their bil lion to Its present value, wllh the view of extending their decimal system, but no nrofessor of mathematics, nor n corns of professors has Hie right to change the English bHUon--Anierlcan Ifyou will as this Is a right reserved to Congress alone. They may teach tho French method or numeration, but this w 111 not make It American any more than teach ing the French language would make It an American language. In law. to-dav. the Kngllsh billion Is the billion of tho United States, but the figure Is so Incon ceivably Immense that It Is only used In sclcntlllc calculations, Charleston news, The only cigarettes which do not stick to the lips are Opera Puffs. tf TEXAS TOILET TRIFLE MANrr.UTTiir.it pot.r.i.v nv J.

The Express correspondent who sends communications to that paper from Kin ney county, under tho non de plume of "M.," advocated recently the co-operation of sheep men to devise on a method uf exterminating the panther, from which at imal they sillier considerably from the constant raid made by It on their sheep. This scheme was very fav orably received by the stockmen and a consultation was decided on to adopt some regular method of lestructlon, orl oiler Inducements to others to hunt and kill the panther. Kro nny definite mode of action had been decided on a bomb shell was thrown Into the community of sheepmen by a discovery that upset their equanimity and raised their Ire. It was found that the Express corre spondent "M" although condemlng the tianthertn extinction nv lien and Ink. was actually cultivating, catching, min ing ami uraiiuingiiieui. l in somewhat original theory for preventing the pan ther ffoin exerclslni; his natural mine. tlte for mutton might have had some chance or being considered, but what arguments that "M." might have had thought tu have brought to bear on tho subject were at once completely refuted by a sheepman, named MoLemond. los ing some sheep by an attack or one of mese aniuinis. me animal was cap tured and killed, nml on further examin ation It was round to bear the brand which "M." was accustomed to use. That taming theory was thus entirely upset.
