San Antonio Daily Light (Newspaper) - March 30, 1891, San Antonio, Texas Site Gail a Alit. 3sc2c monday March 80, 1891. Washington letter. From our regular correspondent Washington March 25,1891. The president has not abandoned Pacific coast trip As was rumoured several Days ago but it is among the probabilities that he May be compelled much against will to do so by the pressure of important Public business. For the season there is an unusual number of questions re a Quiring the personal attention of the executive. The Behring sea matter Heads the list of International business and As the sealing season is about to open and the negotiations bet Wen or. Blaine and Julian Pence fort the British minister Over the detail of the proposed arbitration Are of a very delicate nature complications positively requiring the presidents presence in Washington May arise at any time. Among the important Domestic questions to be determined by the president Are the organization and membership of the land claims court provided for by the late Congress and the new United states court judges whom or. Harrison has about decided to appoint before Congress meets again in accordance with the recent opinion of attorney general Miller that he had a Legal right to do so. These Are the things that have made it doubtful whether the president can get away from Washington for quite a while but he is so anxious to make this trip that he will certainly go if these things can be put int a satisfactory condition before warm weather sets in. The first intention was to have started about april i but that is impossible and if he goes now it will not be until some time in May. No orders have yet been issued instructing our minister to France and Germany to notify those governments that unless they removed the prohibition they have placed upon american meat and meat products we would retaliate by placing a like restriction upon something of like value now imported by us from their respective countries but the feasibility of some such action on the part of this government has been several times discussed by the Cabinet and Secretary Rusk is known to be Strong by in favor of it believing it to be not Only justifiable but required As an act of Justice to american interests. This being the present status of the matter it would not be surprising if such orders should be issued at any time. Senator Sherman has for a great Many years occupied an interesting position in american politics and never More so than at the present time. Some months ago is was stated that he would not be a candidate for re election to the Senate a state ment which he has neither denied nor affirmed. Now the news comes from Ohio that sex gov. Foraker is to be a Send Date for the Senate. Sex congressman Thompson of Ohio is now in Washington and he was asked who he thought would succeed senator Sherman. A Johnf sherman7, he replied a has a very Strong hold upon the people of Ohio because they believe in ability and integrity and As Long As he de a sires to remain in the Senate he will have no difficulty in being elected. Or. Sherman never leaves constituents in doubt As to wishes and you May be certain that position will be fully defined at the proper time will the Republican state convention adopt the Illinois idea of recommending a senator i should to be surprised if it did the idea is being agitated and it is popular. However that would make no difference in the result. Mischievous Dame Rumor after a protracted rest has again begun the foolish work of predicting Cabinet resignations. Secretaries Proctor Aud Noble according to the unreliable Jade Are shortly to resign. As a matter of fact i done to believe that either of them has Ever had even the remotest idea of resigning. Or. Proctor is out of the City on a tour of inspection but assistant Secretary Grant assured that there was not the slightest foundation for the silly Rumor and that he knew that or. Proctor had mapped out work for himself in connection with the department that would last for the rest of the present administration. The Rumor of Secretary Noble a contemplated resignation which by the Way Nas now become quite a a Chestnut a is also i am informed by those who would certainly know equally foundation less Aud probably originated with parties who would like to see out because of their failure to control Bis decisions upon certain important matters in which they were Pecunia Rily interested. R. The Laredo times grows hot in the Collar because the Light truthfully asserts that the Border Belle has got into the soup by the reactions of a busted Boom. Keep Cool Down there. Summer is coming and it grows warm in the burning Sand of the Blo Grande. If the times Man has Faith in Laredo he can prove up and take the lights real estate in that be busted City at 25 cents on the Dollar. Kansas Alliance House was prevented by a Republican Senate from working irreparable disaster to the state. A Republican Senate will also prevent a democratic Bouse at Washington from doing irreparable injury to the c Dun try. Texas has no re pub bean Senate this is her misfortune. To those who fail. Courage Brave heart nor in thy purpose falter go on and win the fight at any Cost. Though sick and weary after heavy conflict rejoice to know the Battle is not lost. The Field is open still to those Brave spirits who nobly struggle till the strife is done through Sun and storm with courage All undaunted. Working and waiting till the Battle s won. The fairest pearls Are found in deepest Waters the brightest jewels in the darkest mine and through the very blackest hour of Midnight the Star of Hope doth Ever brightly Shine. Press on press on the path is Steep and rugged and storm Clouds almost hide Hopes Light from View but you can pass where other feet have trodden a few More Steps May bring you safely through. The Battle o or a Victor crowned with honors by patient toil each difficulty past. You then May see these Days of bitter failure but spurred you on to greater deeds at last. A Nellie Barlow in chamber a journal. Helping a witness. One of the most important characteristics of or. Thomas Hughes Tom Brown is kindness to anybody in difficulty. A Short time ago a Stockport tradesman wrote to requesting advice on a matter of business. The judge sent a kindly and exhaustive reply covering several sheets of foolscap. In county court duties he often manifests sympathy with the working classes. In the Ashton under Lyne county court a few years backs to take one example out of Many a labourer brought an action under the employers liability act for the loss of a limb. Whet the plaintiff entered the witness lox the opposing barrister subjected to a merciless badgering. Over and Over again the poor fellow had to explain How the Accident in dispute happened every time the barrister a could not understand a though to everybody else in court the thing was Clear enough. At length the judge seeing How matters stood said to the plaintiff a you had better address your answer to a but your Honor a said the Man a i can to make a a that san impossibility a said judge Hughes laughingly a you May make understand but you wont make the barrister sat tit bits. _. Stars seen by the naked Eye. One is afraid to say How Many thousands of years ago were made the first observations of stars of which we have any certain knowledge but in All probability they were made not less than seven thousand years ago by priests in Egypt who required to know when certain stars Rose above the Eastern horizon in order that their morning sacrifice might be offered at the proper time that is exactly at Sunrise. Nowadays such Eye observations have Given place soothers made by elaborate instruments which enable us to observe stars not Only on the horizon but in any part of the Blue expanse of heaven while by tile increased Power of telescopes the number of stars within our Ken has been increased from thousands the number which May be seen in both hemispheres by the naked Eye to probably about eighty . Norman Lockyer in youths companion. Where the Ash tree was sacred. The celts and germans and scandinavians worshipped the Mountain Ash and it is especially in the religious myths of the latter that the a astr Yggdrasil plays a prominent part. To them it was the holiest among Trees the a world tree a which eternally Young and dewy represented heaven Earth and hell. According to the Edda the Ash Yggdrasil was an Evergreen tree. A specimen of it grew at up Sala in front of the great Temple and another in doth Marscher carefully guarded by a railing for it was in a mythical Way connected with the Fate of the country. When dither Parschen lost its Liberty the tree withered but a Magpie one of the Best prophesying Birds of the North came and built its nest on the withered tree and hatched five Little ones All perfectly White As a sign that at some future time the country would regain its former Deutsche Mundschau.
