San Antonio Daily Light (Newspaper) - July 13, 1891, San Antonio, Texas She Datig i sect. Monday Judy 13. 1801 shout stops. Professional cards physicians. What the people Are saying. It la now rumoured that mayor Callaghan will return Home in August but whether he will resume the duties of his office is not definitely known. # or. Callaghan May not be a Brilliant statesman or even a great executive nut he certainly deserves to rank next to the wizard of Menlo Park he is running a City government at longer Range than Ever Edison dreamed of making his phonograph talk. There May be egotistic persons about the t Hrone who assume to be running the City but it is really Bryan. Our new paid fire department is certainly proving far Superior to the old Volunteer system in the Way of being More costly a it Bas Cost 12, 070,53 More than the Volunteer per Quarter already. A the people Are wondering if the Dallas Post is not one of the a sundry papers who got $361.12 out of the City Treasury. Ifs a Good thing the Dallas Post Man who gave our City such a delightful putt did not visit Osoyo Street or he would have received smell enough to last him All the Way to Dallas. Ban Antonio is the most fortunate City in the world despite the Lack of sewers the inefficiency of our City government Aud other drawbacks we smell sweeter than Dallas. A to single out or. Kampmann be cause he did not Cut his snare of the City weeds and at the same time to allow weeds to be Cut and rot on the ground proves the utter futility of our sanitary regulations. A a Well posted citizen who was interested in the removal of tile Wall on the South Side of the ban Fernando Cathedral says the object was to get rid of the ugly Stone Wall and give the Church goers a sidewalk on the North Side of Alan Street and thus avoid the smell of the hotel kitchens also to remove the unsightly Iron Clad stable in front of the new City Hall. On Trevino Street there was room for a sidewalk. The City was to pay for half the Cost of the walk. How All this was changed to an Iron railing puzzles the Well posted citizen. # # a sunday visitor to the san Pedro Park complains of a dangerous Mantrap at the Entrance on North Flores Street. Whole duty is it to see to such things ? iss we begin to catch furtive glances at our Bond business in the financial statements emanating from our City auditor. In the last statement Are two items a april 17th, to Cash for $50,000 Public improvement Bonds of 1890, sold in new York $50,000 a a april 17, to Cash for $25,000 Bonds sold in new York $25,000,�?� fire alarm system Job. # # so it would seem that on the 17th of april the City treasurer received $75,000 for Bonds. They must have sold at Par. Were there any com missions paid a # what the people would like to see is a Plain statement about the Sale of our Bonds Fisher or. C.

In linens and extraordinary inducements upholstery Aud unprecedented values in ladies misses and children a shoes and slippers. There is neither Wisdom for sound policy in exaggerating and Over colouring the advantages possessed by Bouthet Texas As is done by persons More highly gifted with imagination and gush than with conscientiousness Aud honesty. These Over drawn and gushing pictures of the country May entice immigrants into settling Here but when they realize the falsity of these pictures they will feel they have been deceived and deluded. # Houth West Texas needs none of this gushing puffery and exam Gratian of Der soil and climate. In truth they actually injure her since All men of common sense and judgment Are disgusted by such puffery and exaggeration. And stay away from Southwest Texas. Gush and puffery Are not the sort of stuff to bring immigrants into Texas and unfortunately such stuff has been too liberally dished up and scattered abroad. Southwest Texas is in truth a flue country. Her soil and climate speak for themselves but immigrants must not expect to grow two crops a year for to raise grapes of Sholl nor that water flows everywhere or f hat All the 9oil requires to a laugh a Harvest is to he tickled with a to tub gush is ridiculous Aud misleading. The Light is opposed to obtaining immigration under false pretences Aud fraudulent represent finns. Immigrants will find that Southwest Texas possesses Many solid advantages among them an unsurpassed climate Aud a Fertile soil favourable to a diversity of crops an absence of Snow in Winter and of malaria in summer. That it is Muddy after a rain that rain does not always fall when it is needed nor in sufficient quantities that in Many sections water is difficult of procurement that grass and weeds grow Here As they do elsewhere that firewood is not very plentiful in places that we have flies and mosquitoes and an ample Stock of stinging scorpions and rattlesnakes is not denied. Every country has its advantages and its inconveniences but Southwest Texas a abundance of the former and very few of the latter. It is a noteworthy taut that ban Antonio Bas had fewer business failures within the last year than any City in Texas. Her business men do not run business on the speculative plan but on strictly business methods Aud principles. # # umbrellas and parasols.
