The introduction before Congress of Bill providing for a ship canal around Niagara Falls a rugs up question in which whole country is vitally it is Tiff same question in part that is engaging the attention of the deep water ways convention now in session at Detroit. As at present matters stand there a no outlet to the Commerce o. The great lakes save through Cana Dian territory via Vivell find canal. The Canadian govern3 it has expended millions upon that canal. It has been improved and enlarged at immense expense until it is now Ca Pable of Locking ships Down the two Hundred Leet of difference Between the upper and lower lakes of sufficient dimensions to make the trans Atlantic voyage with and com Mercial profit. The United s Atee secure such a canal for itself by con True Tidor irom Niagara River via ton Awanda and Lockport a artificial waterway around the Falls into Lake Ontario. This done however there is no inconsiderable work to be accomplished along Che St. Lawrence River before a Safe outlet to sea can be secured. The Canadian government has provided for navigation of the St. Lawrence to its Mouth by canals around the River rapids and similar canals would have to be constructed on the am ii Ash for this Papet should b by the mame of the author not Latta partly for publication but a evidence Rood Faith on part of the writer. Writ a on one Side of the Aper. A a Plain hand. An nya ious Wui not be noticed. Grill not be for the Tate of its , having deposed Fonsega and tasting the of political revolution now demands the Resig nation of Rouse a s Short lived Suc Cessor Peixoto. That country seems to have More change of rulers than change of political policy or change in her financial embarrassment. The appointment of Steve Elkins to succeed Proctor As Secretary of War is announced that the appointment is not satisfactory to the republicans of the country and is accepted As a slap in the face by new England was Only to have been expected. The appointment gi7es no satisfaction to the country no strength to the administration and confers no dignity the office. In making it president Harrison has disappointed his friends and put a weapon in the hands of his enemies to flight himself with. The advices received from Washington do not intimate that Culber son was a second time offered the inter state . He declined the Honor when tendered him some months ago and since Congress met has notified the president of his reconsideration of that declination but there is no intimation that the president Haa a second time offered him the place. Certain it is that Cul Berson h name did not appear among Che names sent to Senate for Friday december Antonio is the Healthiest of its size in the United states. City Antonio is getting out of the mud literally and she should do to metaphorically As Well. She wants no Moss on her Back no mud on her boots no mire in her streets. In the press utterances of Texas Are any Index of general feeling through out the state Mills has the first Call for Reagan b beat by a very Large majority. Milwaukee will go on the democratic National convention but she stands no show of getting it if Minneapolis and St. Paul Are each willing to see that and raise it As reports state. A bid has no show against Tor a democratic convention location. Money a easy at the great Trade centers and certain to grow easier. The old world yet was us Irold which she took from us last Spring to help herself out of a nine Hole and Moat of it will be returned this Winter. The Globe Democrat thinks that or. Mills displays to error of judg ment in seeking a seat in the United states Senate. Perhaps but or. Mills has been deprived of that recognition by his party in the House of representatives which Hia abilities and Hie party services entitled him to expect. He is therefore justified in seeking another and More secure position Tor himself and a recognition by his state of the eminent services he has Ren dered her. Mills election to the sen ate will be accepted an an endorse ment of his conduct in Congress and As a protest against his defeat As candidate or speaker. The Herald foresees and foreshadows a few mixed Pio Klea in the menu of the Texas democracy and three fourths of the democratic papers of Texas Are in favor of tree coinage and opposed to the Cleveland idea of a King the next Campaign solely on the Tariff. Two thirds of the democratic papers of Texas How Ever want to see Mills elected Sena Tor a Good majority want to 1 nominated for president. Will Mills antagonize the popular senti ment in Texas or will the senatorial contest be badly mixed it matters not How the times conundrum be answered there is Noth ing alarming in the situation. The Bosses will pull hair awhile but the Man who comes out Best in the scrap can depend on the democratic follow ing no matter into whose Camp it leads. The rank and file of the party in Texas have no will but that of their rulers. It is a Loyal party and convenient to handle. It always with the Man who whips. The Wiit virile nun dress of thousands of visitors into the South this Winter and 8an an Tonio has better inducements to offer them for a cold weather sojourn than any of her fair competitors. Can Side before the Commerce of the great lakes could find its Way unobstructed to the sea through its own Waters or the Neutral Waters of the lakes and the River St. Lawrence. It would take no Lens than from to to do this work construct the canals around Niagara Falls and the St. Lawrence River rapids and then the Commerce of the lakes seeking the Atlantic sea Board would have to make the lengthy and tedious passage of the it. Lawrence River and Gulf and pass Many leagues eastward of Boston and new York before reaching the open Ocean. It is a question if the whole end of such waterway connection with the Atlantic sea Board would not be better solved by an enlargement of the Erie canal to accommodate tonnage of the upper lakes and through water communication to the Atlantic via the Hudson River. The United 8tates will be obliged to con Sider this question of an open water Way to the Atlantic from the great lakes before Long and the sooner she undertakes the work the sooner will she be rid of the annoyances arising every year from the Effort to secure a compliance on the part of Canada with the agreement under which american Commerce is to have the same rights through the Welland that Canadian Commerce has. An agreement so far Only made to be evaded or openly disregarded. In Case of trouble with Canada or great Britain the Welland canal would be shut to our vessels and All our immense Lake Commerce Cut Short offal Buffalo to find its outlet through railway lines to the sea. There will be bluster Lor political effect but neither on currency or in Tariff will this Congress make any changes. Fort Worth mail Bays that the Tox a legislature will want to direct the votes of their senator in Congress and before he a elected they must know his mind. That Texas Legisla Ture was never yet accused by its Best friends of knowing its own mind Crisp voted for the Mill s Bill against the Mckinley and both in order to reduce duties on foreign importations. At the same time Mckinley s Bill reduced duties on foreign importations about below the Mill s schedule. Strange Way of reducing or. Crisp. Confirmation and the texan is not a candidate for the place. This clears tie slate for 1 Egi Slatino action at Home and Leares or. Cul Berson free to enter the senatorial race.

It rejoices in the Prosperity of the farming classes and draws compari sons to their credit without any Dis count. Farm and ranch says Farmer who will give his bus iness As much study for As Many Days in the week As the merchant gives to his business and As Methodi Cal industrious and enterprising will never have to make Aii assignment for the Benefit of his creditors. When a Texas Farmer fails Aad his creditors take his Cotton and horses and his dry cattle he of Oes to work a Little earlier the next sea son works a Little harder and practices a Little better farm Economy and his last end is As food As his first. When the merchant fails his credit ors attach his Bank account Garnishee his creditors and jump on his prostrate form with both feet and All that is left of him is an indistinct recollection that he once existed.
