When should the criminal docket be taken up and disposed of editor Light it has heretofore been the practice that civil cases have had preference Over criminal cases. This is All wrong the business in which the whole a bite is concerned most should be at ended to first before the private suits of individuals for the Hest of reasons. The county of Bexar for instance Las generally from sixty to eighty prisoners in the county jail at an enormous expense to the people for feeding medical attention guards Etc. This Money comes from the pockets of the people and goes into the pockets of the officers. The Tonger the prisoners Are kept an jail a More profitable is to the officers and the greater the expense. To the people. But not Only on this ground is it wrong but humanity and the Law de it Coa ads that men confined in jail who Are unable to give Bond should have a fair speedy and impartial trial Aud not be compelled to wait for a trial Saintil from three to five weeks of the term is consumed Iii setting the disputes of private individuals. Neither judges1 clerks or District attorneys should have Auy discretion or Choice in this matter.

What the people Are saying. A the ovation Given him a speaking of the German emperor in his interview says mayor Callaghan a has created considerable Adverse feeling toward the germans in England where it is intimated that the governor set and especially the Royal family Are supporting the native born briton with the German and the beef eater has to go to give place to his German too this piece of information would indicate that our mayor has been very Busy looking into the affairs of state of great Baltian and Speaks by the card about the Royal family it is evident he has it in for the germans on either Side of the Channel. But when it comes to speak of Russia our travelled City executive brightens up he informs our taxpaying citizens that the German emperors a reception when he attended the Royal marriage was a very tame affair in comparison to the reception of the French Fleet at Crons Tad to and emphasized the fact that France Aud Russia Are in full Accord. Of course the Reading Public have read ail about this business but it will sound very grand to May of the mayors admirers who will believe that or. Callaghan actually enjoys close confidential relations with the crowned Heads of Europe. # # but the essence of his Honor a observations is Patent when he comes to drawing a comparison Between the French Soldier Aud the German Soldier says his Honor a every Frenchman is a Soldier from patriotism and he has the endurance inspired by that sentiment. Every German is a Soldier because he has to be and while he loves his fatherland he does not like the enforced service that is so rigid so lengthy and injurious to his business our mayor lacks a Good Deal of being a Frenchman or a German and ought to be an impartial judge As Between these two nationalities especially As he comes fresh from Paree but our taxpayers will begin to wonder if it is Worth the handsome salary paid Bis Honor. But then comes the conclusion the Young Mau has seen All the glory of the old world but has not become dazzled he says a i find however that i prefer to look at european affairs from this Side of the in this conclusion the taxpayers who support the City government heartily concur with him. A i have heard san Antonio derided at Home a says our mayor a was being dirty and filthy and yet she is the cleanest City i have Ever visited Aud i have been to Loudon Paris Brussels Havre new York Chicago and St. Louis since i left Here and none of them compare with ban Antonio in Point of cleanliness healthiness godliness and it is pleasant to be told that you Are Good looking Nice Etc., but there is an inner consciousness that the mayor is either a Gay deceiver or is in the fix of a belated husband who attempt to make Bis better half of Lieve he is perfectly sober and to avoid a curtain lecture by soft Sodden no it wont do or. Callaghan you treated the people Over whom you have the Honor to preside with marked contempt and no Cou Sidera Mon when you took your leave for France. World for its size. But it is not due to our sanitary regulations because we know of none worse. When it comes to comparing Bau Antonio with London Paris new York Chicago Brussels it sounds ridiculous.
