The bloodv work Mill cocs on in St
LouN Lnst Monday evening while m
the discharge of hi duty officer Doran
was deliberately bhot through the head
and instantly killed by a desperado
named John Shea After some difficulty
the murderer was hemmed and captur
ed in a blind alley near the Lindel Ho
tel and afterwards incarcerated in mur
derers row now making twenty nine
men who are lying in the St Lou
is jail for the crime of murder It is a
disgrace upon the name of St Louis
It seems that it is impossible if he has
money to punish a man for crime
When courts ofjustice arc pervcrtcdand
criminals escape unpunished it
is no wonder the honest people feel like
taking the law into their own hands Six
years ago Charles Kring deliberately
shot a woman because she refused to
forsake her husband and become Ins
mistress yet that man still lives and
though a jury of twelve men have said
he should hang a judge was found
corrupt enough to give him an oppor
tunity to slip his neck out of the noose
and the villian has another chance for
Iiis life Twenty nine men accused of
murder lying in the jail awaiting trial
at one time It is a disgrace to the
city of St Louis and to the state
The rapid and wonderful develop
ment of the West the tremenduous
strides of our new railroad lines the
ever increasing demand for all kinds
of skilled labor and the activity of even
kind of manufacturing industry and
building enterprise so soon after a gen
eral period of stagnation is something
wonderful to contemplate and the
more thoughtful among observers are
led to exclaim what is to be the out
come Will it like a train of loose
cars on a long and steep grade go on
with ever
THE TIMES
the srand crash comes at
increasing momentum till
last at the
loot ot the grade and buries all in
wreck and confusion So far as the
present prosperity is healthy and reason
able it need not and yet in seasons
of general prosperity and activity is the
very time when men grow reckless and
forgetting the ever recurring lessons of
the past plunge headlong into doubt
ful enteqirises and become involved
themselves and involve others in their
own ruin Action and re action is
the law of natui e and one follows quick
ly upon the heels of the other
Now is the time to Jay the founda
tions on a solid endurimr basis and j
the man ift ho is square with the world
and knows what he owns is not an
others is the one who can afford to
laugh at panics and snap his fingers
at hard limes
Thanksgiving
1UOCIAMATIOX BY THE PRESIDENT
Washing ox D C November 7
The following proclamation was issued
from the Department of State to day
by the President of the United Slates
- of America
It has long been a pious custom of
our people with the closing of the year
to look upon the blessings brought to
them in changing the course of sea
sons and to return thanks to the all
giving sources from uhom Ihey flow
and although at this period when the
falling leaf admonishes us that the time
of our sacred duty is at hand our na
tion still lies in the shadow of a great
bereavement and the mourning uhich
has filled our hearts still finds us in a
sorrowful expression toward the Ccd
before whom we but lately bowed in
grief and supplication yet the count
less benefits which have been shower
ed upon us during the past twelve
months call for our fencnt gratitude
and make it fitting that we should re
joice with thankfulness that the Lord
in his infinite mercy has most signally
favored our country and our people
Peace without and prosperity within
have been vouchsafed to us No pest
ilence has visited our shores The
abundant privileges of freedom which
our fathers left us in their wisdom are
still our increasing heritage and if in
parts of our vast domain some afflic
tion has visited our brethren in their
forest homes yet even this calamity has
been tempered and in a manner
sanctified by the generous compas
sion for the sufferers which has been
called forth throughout our land For
all these things it is meet that the
voice of the nation should go up to
God in devout homage Wherefore I
Chester A Arthur President of the
United States do recommend that all
the ueoiile observe Thursdav the 24th
dav of November as a day of national
thanksuivins and prayer by ceasm
o far as mav be from their secular
labors and meeting in their several
places of worship there to join in
ascribing the honor and praise to Al
mighty God whose goodness has been
so manifest in our history and in our
lives and offering earnest prayers that
His bounties may continue to us and
our children In witness whereof I
hereunto set my hand and caused the
seal of the United States to be affixed
Ilnne at the Citv of Washington
this the 4th dav of November in the
vear of our Lord iSi and of the in
dependence of the United States the
106th

missioner Raum received a telegram
this afternoon from las D Brady of
Petersburg Ya which says
oie reports come in slow out all we
have arc very good Our majority in
lorgensens district is heaw and we
ha e carried sll of Desendorf s district
excepting Portsmouth Unless all our
careful estimates this morning are er
roneous we have elected Cimeron In
more than 10000 maioritv and carried
the legislature
Washington D C Nov S The
interests of the government in the Gui
teau prosecution are to be entrusted to
other hands than the present distict at
tome Col Corkhill of Iowa who is a
son ftilaw of justice Miller The reason
given for the change in this important
office here is that the services of an
abler and more experienced prosecutor
may be secured The name of Chas
ILRccd of Chicago is mentioned asa
possible successor
1 It is untrue that Col CoikhilPs re-
moval is caused by the charge of Mc-
Veagh and Col Cooks friends that the
I district attorney is in sympathy with the
slar route people
1 he explanation made csterday
shows that he has not been at fault so
far as the grand jury is concerned
i tc notified Attorne Genera M cVcagh
before he adjourced the grand jury last
September and the attorney general
said that if he wanted the senices of
the grand jury he would let him know
This he never did and the inference
drawn by the public was that Corkhill
uljounied the jury to avoid bringing 111
indictments against certafn of the star
route people before the statute of limi
tations should go into effect

Newspaper Organs
If the excellence of a newspaper i not
always measured by its prolitablenesit
t 13 generally true that it does not pav
its owner it is valueless to the public
Not all newspapers which make money
are good tor some succeed by catering
to the lowest tastes of respectable peo
ple and to the prejudice ignorance and
passion of the lowest class but as a
rule the successful journal pecuniarily
is the best journal The 1 caseins for
this are on the surface The
nious ne wsparer can not give its rea
ders promptly the news and still
worsr it can not be independent The
political journal that relies for sunnart
on drippings of party favor or pa
tronage is a pooi atlair and in the
long run or short run comes to grief
Thonerrspiper only becomes a real
nower when it is able on the basis of
pecuniary independence to free itself
from all such entanglements An
editor who stands with hat in hand
has tkje respect accorded to anv other

Texas Letter
The following letter from 1 V Lycan
to his parents in his place contains
much of general interest and hence we
give it to our readers
Die Elm Tcvas
Oct 2lth 1881 f
Yours of the 20th inst came duly to
hand It found us all well and as well
satisfied as we could be under the cir
cumstance It is true that this coun
try has Milleied wonderfully with the
drouth probably more so than with
you although everything is plenty at
the prices Corn is worth from SO to
00 cents prairie hay 4 per ton oats CO
cents per bushel The best quality of
flour - 20 per cwt As to vegetables
there are none to be had although
vegetables of every description can be
raised here as well as in Missouri
There was no ram in this part of the
state fio the 10th of June to the loth
of Sept Consequently nothing could
make a good crop
Lewis has sowed ten acres of wheat
the seed cost him 100 per bushel
The land is well adapted to wheat and
will make a good crop it seasonable
I like the country very much and ac
cording to my judgement is as good as
there i in the United States for the
age of it This part of Cook county
was first settled about eight years ago
and now it is thickly settled along the
streams with nice clever people
This is the linest grass country I over
saw Cattle and Horses live
fat the year through without any
grain Even the work horses are turn
ed out to feed themselves
The greatest objection is the scarcity
of timber The fencing is principally
barb wire
Raw land is selling for from 1 to 5
per acre the best bottom land sells
at i to 4 in some instances j
These lands are excellent The best
upland for farming purposes sells for
2 0 to 0 The grazing land brings
usually about 1 and is very fine for
grass Raising stock is the principal
business Cotton is cultivated to quite
an extent and is the best quality iaise
in the United States
Wo had no trouble 111 getting water
for the horses Hay was hard to get
and high when we did find it The
horses stpod the trip well The dis
temper cut them down considerable as
every horse had it 011 the road Every
hor e inthe whole outfit got through
without a scratch and was not sick a
minute Wc had 15 of the best horses
that ever crossed Red River and 18 of
