Y THE STATESMAN. AUSTIJf, TEXAS. HOW THE SCHOOL FUND IS DEPLETED. Again the permanent school fund is being depreciated by the runious in vestment in bonds at a great discount. It has been announced in our depart ment notes that the stite treasurer has bought $10,000 of frontier bonds at 1.22, and that $1,000,00 J is to be in vested in high premium securities The transaction of last year, whereby the school fund was made to lose 8450,000 by such investment, was sufficiently condemned by the people of the state to lead officers, especially regarding the public funded interests, to enter into no more such transac tions; but instead of popular protest being regarded, again the governor and treasu?e engage in a similar financial transaction. It will be re membered that one of the declara tions against the Roberts ad ministration by Judge Ireland, when he became a candidate, was because $1,414,000 in cash had been used to invest in $1,000,000 worth of state bonds. Denunciation of this tra...

THE STATESMAN, AUSTIN, TKXAS. .DEPARTMENT NOTES. TUESDAY. There was comparatively very little of special interest transpiring in any of the departments yesterday.' But it usually requires about as much time and aMduuy oh tne part il tne re porters to tindbut that there is nothing of public note, as it d-es to report the tacts when tliey are lorluuale enougn to evoke intounition worth publish ing. In this connection it may be of some speculative interest to state that the treasurer is not at all apprehen sive of the robbers making a raid on the treasury coffers w ith a shadow of success. The arrangements of the vaults are such that a robbery would be utterly impossible. Just what they are, it is not proper to state, but the writer has carefully inquired into the mat ter, and the public may rest assured that there is no danger whatever. To express it bluntly, the robbers, no matter in what force or how equipped, may "do their best" and cannot suc ceed. Even if they resorted to the mos...

Y J J. ) THE STATESMAN. AUSTIN, TEXAS. ' The Apaches left in Mexico are again raiding and depradating. ' Faithful watching is worth more than all the prayers against the intro duction of a deadly malady into thk country. There is more Christianity in the good women of Boston establishing public water fountains than in all the church suppers. Of the three millions in the state treasury 8800,000 belongs to revenue. What an argument is this for increas ing taxation from 30 to 60 cents. The proprietor of the Belton Re porter, on account of very poor health, wants to dispose of his paper and office. Printers desiring to go it alone might communicate with him. Tom Marshall, who refused the Republican nomination for congress man at large in Pennsylvania last fall, says he has yet to see the first sign of harmony in the ranks of the party in that state.

THE STATESMAN. ALbTIN, TEXAS. DEPARTMENT NOTES. EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT. Gov. Ireland in answer yesterday to the inquiry whether he had any answer to make to the manifesto of the removed members of the board of managers of the state lunatic asy lum, intimated that he had no pro nunciamento to fulminate in such matters. The law did not require 9 thU he should furnish the recalci trant members of the board with his reasons for their removal, but simply that they should be spread upon the records of his office, lie had no ob jections now to these reasons l-eing published.

THE STATESMAN. AUSTIN, TEXAS. f . The Federal government has al ready paid 8700,000,000 in pensions. Next Tuesday is election day, and the opponents of oppressive taxation should be at the polls in force. Judge Hoadly has nothing to add in regard to the Foster slander, and has dismissed the matter by saying: "My object is sufficiently accomplish ed by the di.-closure of the name of his informant. Will the university regents do a simple act of justice in recalling this unfair discrimination against female matriculants ? It is against the spirit of all Texas law; it is unconstitutional and cannot be respected. The Georgetown Sun is satisfied the tax amendments will be defeated. They certainly will be, if the people have not lost their senses, if they have not decided to sell body and soul to the tax gatherers.

Ireland yesterday received the resignation of Mr. Alfred Smith as a member of the board of managers of the state lunatic asylum. The letter appears blow in the eourse of corres pondence between the board and the governor relative to the asylum. The fact of the resignation indicates that Mr. Smith would have probably sided with Dr. Burt and Col. llutherford in the controversy with the superinten dent, and that no action will now be taken in the way of pref errjng charges before the board against Dr. Denton.

if-,' .S'.-y.- TREATMENT OF THE IXSAMU- lu Dio Lewis Monthly is an article on insane asylums, in which estab lished plans of conduct are con demned, as false in organization as well as in fading to cure. . The. faults set forth are the congregating of too many patients under one superintend ence, making the proper study of in dividual cases of dementia impossi ble, and the sequent leaving of them to routine and the care and uianage- nient of attendants who are rarely persons of the required intelligence and sympathy. - The charge follows that the practical outcome of this state of things is that hundreds of persons in these asylums, who need the most caref discriminating study, are treated much as farmers treat cattle kept inside a high fence, and are not allowed to hurt each other. With the exception that the insane are dosed with anodynes to cause them to sleep, the writer says, it would be difficult to point out the difference of treatment of the insane and the management of unru...
