THAT PROTECTS Ner/ Orleans Picayune: For more than a year past there have been revolutions and internal troubles in Central America, and American warships have been maintained on both the Atlantic and Pacsfk coasts to protect American interests, without ac cording any particular protec tion that any one knows of. Nit a single one of naval commanders would dare go ashore and pre sent an ultimatum to the petty Central American magnates where the protection of Americ an interests demanded attention, because they would be afraid they might not be sustained b\ the government at Washington. Contrast this weak and vacil lating course of acting with that Df the Captain of the British cruiser Scylla. It was reported to him by cable by the Brit is Consul that British subjects wer< being maltreated in Honduras, ar.d that one such sudject, a Jamaica negro, had been killed The commander of the Scylla promptly sailed for Honduras and immediately on his arriva he went ashore and demanded, firstly, that the Governor of t ht Atlantic province of Honduras be removed; secondly, that tin Mayor or Intendente of the ol* fending town and the officials mainly concerned in the outrages be imprisoned, and thirdly, that an indemnity of 100.000 sols bt paid. He a’so announced toa: if these demands were not im n ediatelv acceded to ne would once land armed forces, arrest the guilty officials and seize and hold the customhouse until enough duties were collected to meet the indemnity demanedtd There was no demurring 01 sidestepping on the the part oi the Honduras officials at thest demands. Everything was im mediattely granted, because th< Honduras Government knew per fectly well that the British naval commander would do exactly as he promised. It is no wondei that being a British subject means something in Centra America, as well as everywhere else in the world. When a sub ject of Great Britain residin. abroad complains to the consulai or diplomatic officers of his conn try of any ill-treatment he is ab solutel.v sure of redess, no matte! how remote the locality or how great the difficulty involed. Whe: a British warship is sent to : necessity for cabling home for instructions or incurring any de lays. There is a peremptory de mand, accompanied by a show of force, which everybody knows by experience will 1 e immediate ly backed up by the actual ap plication of force, if need be, and the trouble is settled onc< and for all. No. wonder that a British subject feels life wher ever he goes, and that American' ar.d other Nationals ieei asnam ed of the lack of energy and en terprise shown by the official? of their counties by comparisons with those of Great Britain British officials may be some times arrogant and overbearing but it must be said to their credit that they always look after the interests of their own country men residing abroad, and show no fear of consequences when they undertake to protect them. The behavior of our grand Re public in such cases is pititfullv contemptible by contrast It was never known to protect its people abroad under any circum stances. Any little Nation can make it take water save when a Cleveland happens to be at the fore. PRAYER POSTED IN _ POLICE STATIONS At the direction of Acting Po lice Commissioner Rugher, who as First Deputy Commissioner has charge of the traffic squads there was posted yesterday in every stable where police horses are kept throughout the city a neatly printed card bearing a copy of “The Prayer of a Horse.” The Acting Commissioner came acoss the prayer while he was in Pittsburg recently, and it struck him so forcibly that he arranged to have it reproduced in large type for use in Police De partment. ihe prayer reads: “To thee, my master, I offer my prayer: “Feed me. water and care for me, and when the day’s work is done, provide me with shelter, a clean, dry bed and a stall wide enough for me to lie down in comfort. Talk to me. Your voice often means as much to me as the reins. Rest me some times. that I may serve vou the more gladiy and learn to love you. Do not jerk the up hill. Never strike, bear or kick me when 1 do not understand what you mean, but give me a chance to understand you. Watch me, and if I fail to do your bidding, see if something is not wrong with my harness or feet. Examine my teeth when I do not eat. 1 may have an ulcera ted tooth and that, you know is very painful. Do not tie mv head in an unnatural position, or take away my best defense against flies and mosquitoes by cutting off my tail. “And finally, my dear master when my useful strength is done do not turn me out to starve or freeze, or sell me to some cruel owner to be slowly tortured and starved to death, but do thou my master, take my life in the kindest way, and your God will reward you here and hereafter. You may not consider me irrev erent if I ask this in the name of Him who was born in a stable. Amen.’’—(New York American. —- ■ --- - SNODGRASS FOR AMENDMENT NO. 10 After reading and studying the question of the Initiative and Referendum closely for the oast few weeks, am freely to say that I think that the people should vote for the Amendment. It may not be exactly the thing that we are looking for, but I beiieve that it is a step in the right direction and let’s all vote for it. It is a step toward the people ruling and that is a mighty good safe guard to throw around all law making bodies. Respectfully, Jas. Snodgrass.

GAS PIPELINE MEN ENROUTE SOUTH Little Rock, Sept. 8.—Two special trains occupied bv woi k men in the employ of the Dawes Gas Syndicate passad through Little Rock over the Irpn Monr> tain tracks this morning from Pittsburg en route to the Caddo gas Helds in Louisiana to begin work on the gas pipe line from that section to Little Rock. These trains were delivered to the Iron Mountain at Memphis late last night by the Illinois Central and they were operated special through Arkansas to Texarkana today by the Iron Mountain. The first train pass ed through Little Rock at 7:05 o’clock this morning, while the other arrived here at 10:30 and left ten minutes later for Tex arkana. Arriving at Texarkana these trains were transfer, ed to the Kansas City Southern, and left immediately for Lonisiana, where the men will at once be gin operations on the pipe line to this city. 1 he stop of ten minutes in this city was taken advantage of by a large number of the men to stretch their legs, and while they refused to discuss the work in which they would be engaged in Louisiana they did not deny that they were going there to begin laying the pipe line. A large number of the men appeared tc be skilled workmen and from other sources it is learned that only a comparatively small num ber of them are common labor ers, the syndicate depending tc a certain extent upon local labor of this character. Tne exact route of the pipe line, which will be extended tc St. Louis throngh Arkansas, has never been definitely announced, but it is understood that it will come into the State from Louisi ana near Taylor and that it will pass near McNeil on the Cotton Belt and thence to a point near the light of way of the Iron Mountain near Hope or Arkadel phia and then along the line oi the railroad to a point tc the west and on to St Louis. -- .

Bryan —AT THE— PARK To-day 1:30 p m No Admission Hear Hin CITY COUNCIL MET TUESDAY NIGHT The City Council met at the Mayor,s office in regular session last Tuesday night and after the regular routine, the denot ques tion was brought up. The coun cil was unanimous in the matter of taking the old depot out of Main street if it reached the point of a condemnation suit. Then the locating was taken up. On motion, the question was put as to the locating the new depot between Vine and Oiive streets, and the vote stood 4 for and 2 against. Vine street is the first street south of Elm street, and the one that can be occupied by the depot is Pine, just south of Vine, which will take the depot near the P. & N. W.Junction. * You will make no mistake by making good roads and voting for No. 10. Wanted—To buy a car load of horses. Nixon and Bolls.
