Alitor Ban Antonio Light. Mr. HiirIi Swain, or Clarksvllle, Ited Itlver county, a son of Comptroller Swain, passed the best examination of 12 applicants wbo were seeking tho West I'olnt cadetshlp and will conse quently be lecoinmcnded by Hie Hoard of Kxsmlners to Congressman Sayers as being entitled to tho place. 1 here Is no llttlu dissatisfaction among the citizens of this county over the probable ap pointment of Mr. Sivaln, as It Is claimed that ho Is not an eligible car.dldale from Ibis district, on the grounds ofnott-clil-cnslilp. It Is well known hero that Hon. A. M. Taylor, of lied lilvcr coun ty, will be n candidate before the next convention for Attorney Uencral, and as It Is Improbable that two Stale olllcers will be selected from tho saino county, Mr. Swain lias doubtless concluded to risk his chances for Governor as a citi zen of Travis county without limitation. He has never cast a vote In this county, and It Is reasonable to suppose If defeated for Uovernor In tho next convention, that he will return to Clarksvllle. ir Colonel Swain Is not a bona lido eltlren nf this county, bis son can not be, for the reason that he Is a minor, and tils father's home is his, Congressman Say ers will likely Investigate this matter before recommending tho appointment. I'ersons living In the vicinity of the lunntlo aiylum report that a woman bus been seen on three or four oc casions running at largo In the woods entirely nude and other wise, In a most deplorablo con dition, several attempts hnvo been made to capture her, but owing to her elasticity and power, which Is said to be almost supernatural, and the many nat ural and convenient hiding places which the locality affords, she has so fur man aged to escape her pursuers. It Is thought she Is an escape from the asylum. It Is said City Marshal I.eo contem plates resigning his position, on account of the Inadequate number of policemen furnished him for the protection of the city. In case of a vacancy, no belter man than Constablo Thorps could be found to tako tho olflce. As Constable be has made one of the most elllclent olllcers Travis county lias ever had. The City Council have held an execu tive session to take boiiio notion to de tect If possible the parties who have been making the mld-iilglit raids on servant girls for the last six months. It Is believed that a competent detective has been sent for. One of tho Grass Commissioners who was recently appointed by the Land Hoard, fell by tho wayside at Koit Worth from an overdoso of "John Jlar leyoorn," was arrested and placed In the calaboose. The Uovernor was not I lied by wire of the Commissioner's condition, ii nd at once called t he Hoard toget her and dismissed him. It Is now said the three members of the Land Hoard who voted lor bl in have refunded to tho State Treasurer $200, being the amount fur nished him for an outllt, which he failed to turn over to bis successor. Governor Lubbock says he wlllbe "ivhlto-headed" before ho will ever bo talked Into voting for another man contrary to his Incllna Hons. Such treacherous tricks can never be repeated upon tho present State officials by the samo person. Dr. M. A. Taylor, a prominent physi cian here, had his buggy completely de molished yesterday by n drunken farm er's team running into it. The police of tills city are nt present the worst abused set of men In Texus cause, not catching tho murderer of Mary Itatney. Austin has a population of 2,000, and but three police for night duty. Major Lewis, tho father of the liven ing Minute, has sold out his Interest In that paper. Dr. J. J. Tobln, who has been suffering from a severe attack or rheumatism, has recovered sulllclently to bo out upun the streets, with the aid of crutches. Captain C. T. Mtillett, one of Austin's most progressive citizens and proprietor of the Opera house, has contracted with the leading theatrical attractions of tho day for tho season. DISTRICT COUET. Openlngof tho Term This Mornlng-To-Day's Business. llotb beforo the entrance and tho In terior of the District court, thera Is a lively crowd of various denominations, lawyers, witnesses, plaintlus and defend ants, and citizens who are summoned by the grand Jury. Ily 0:30 o'clock, space reserved for the lawyers In the District court was full, and a business-like and bustling air tirevaded the whole court far dlllerent from the silence which has existed for the last month or two past. Judge Noonan took his seat on the bench about 10 o'clock, and the empanel ling of the grand Jury took plaoe. Owing to the absence of two ot the gentlemen summoned as Jurors, this did not take place, and the others wcro excused until 1 o'clock, attachments being Is sued for the defaulting Jurors. The docket was then called over and various cases Bet for trial. The most Important btislncss.before the court to-day will be tho examination of the writ of habeas corpus for Anton Heetz. This will pro bably not tako place much before 2 or :i o'clock this afternoon. Zigzag Runaway, Harry Thornton got oirids box of hack No. 2 nt San I'edro springs, yesterdny, tied his horses and stepped over to the bar to get a cigar. Ills horses broke the hitching strap, and turning around with the hack In the midst of a crowd of hacks and buggies without; colliding with any of them, ran away, out tho gates and down San Pedro avenue to Warren street, where they turned and ran to North Klores street, down that street to Commerce and from there to Main plaza and across Main plaza and up Market street to Casino hull, whero they turned Into Casino street, then Into Commerce street and up to tho bridge. Turning around on the bridge they toro back down Commerce street and to the Military plaza, and were only slopped In their tnad race by a hackman named 1'ete Horn, who struck one orthn horses In the bead with a rook. Only two 'i,u"r ' niiecmiiu a uoor were torn from the hack. Will bs c'lossn. Our Store Will bo closed from Weilnns. day evening until Friday morning on uuuiu ui ucwiBii uouuay, U-7-H U. 11.

At tho meeting of tho Socladad Mil tuallsta .Mexicans, held In the liccor drr's court room on Saturday night, the question of celebrating tho anniversary of Mexican IttdepcmUncc, was dis cussed ut length. The President of the society, Mr. Juan Cardenas, took the chair, and J. K. Garcia was Secretary, There were some ') persons In attend ance, the majority of whom took part In the proceedings. The President stated that as It was charged that they wanted to run the celebration, liu wished It understood that It was not as n society, but only as rltlrensof Mexlonn extrac tion, and proposed that the meeting nil Journd ns asocletr meeting, and Unit a mass meeting of the people be organ ized In Us sterol.

SMALL POX SCARE. The following Is the olllcial report of the County Physician, Dr. Chew, rela- Ivo to tho small pox outbreak on the lleloles: ton. ( . I., Wiirzhiifh, County Julia! Sin Aniii.mii, September 0. Sir: In ilMcrvnncu ti lour Instructions. I went jeslerday to Investigate tho reported outbreak of small pox on tho Ilelotes creek. 1 learned tout the disease had appeared on Blx or seven ranches. In tin nren of 10 miles, but inv time was sn short Hint I could only visit thrco places, lint 1 saw two cases or confluent small pox. as bad ns any case I saw hero In the epiuemto or I3i8. in these -u cases 1 saw the disease In every ltngc,from tho pus tular to dlsguatnatlon. In my Investigations there was ono Interesting fact displayed, and Hint Is, none (if the persons who hnvo taken the disease, had ever been vaccinated, and persons who havo been vaccinated iro among the sick with perfect immunity. The question arises, what shall bo done to prevent the spread of this disease and keep it out or this city. '1 he Mexican has no dread of small-pox nnd freely visits bouses where tliedls- esso prevails, anu uy mat means it Is liable to spread over tho country. 1 would respectfully suggest as the only remeuy to stamp ino disease out Is bv thorough vaccination, which will have to he uono uy tne county authorities, for most of the people aro unable, to pay for vaccination, and the city authorities should establish a thorough quarantine against the section whero this disease Is prevailing. Ucspcctfully yours, T. It. Ciikw. Judge Noonan has Issued Instructions to the Sherlll not to summon witnesses from tho section where tho disease Is prevalent. Notices have been posted out all over the vicinity, telling tho In habitants not to go Into town. Ti pre vent them from entering the city and to strictly enforce the quarantine. It would be advisable forelther the county or city to place an olllrer on watch along the line of road to prevent the residents on the lleloles breaking the quarantine Railroad Progress. On Saturday connection wns made on tho San Antonio & Aransas Pass railroad with the I. & (3. N. The track Is now complete from the Sunset to the I. & U. N. across Hint part of tho city, Including tho bridge across the San Pedro, and material can be recolvetl from both roads. This wlllgreatly lacllltuto work. Truck laying on the main lino began this morning, and In a day or two It will bo laid across the San Antonio river, nnd continued nt the rate of n mile a day until the Salado Is reached, where there will be n 130-foot span bridge. This will delay the workmen for a few days, and then the track will be pushed on to the Calaveras, which Is the most (1 1111 oult stream to cross on tho entire line, and will detain the advance ror a week or two at least. There is n large gang or men nt work at the depot grounds, and things are be ginning to tako shape. The foundations of many of the buildings are already In, and In a few dais the line passenger de pot win uo unuer wny, and will be an ornament to any city. The Lkiiit gave a general description of this building In Saturday's issue. Yesterday there wero many people, among whom werp some or the most prominent citizens, visiting the grounds ot this new road, and gen eral surprise and satisfaction was ex pressed nt the appearunco of things. Tho Free Show, Tho King and Powers Comedy com pany gave a good entertainment at San Pedro springs last night to a fair- sized audience. Theso entertainments are free, and the performances are really good, and deserve a better appreciation at the hands of the public. Tho enter tainments would no doubt bo better patronized If the enterprising lessco would require his policemen to put out all the objectionable females that at tend, most of them oil color, who con. duct their disgusting vocation on tne grounds In tho face of resnectable neo. tile. If the policemen employed at the Springs cannot control this matter, the City Council should send out Cantaln Tom Hughes, and the Light will bet he will soon Inform these Improper charac ters, both men and women.
