The ioe has been broken the business . .. . 1 A 1 J t n men of Austin nave oeen lniruuuueu w each other the timidity and natural re Berve of a first meeting have now been worn off and they are prepared to oettle down to work together in earnest. The railroad meeting last evening in this respect was a great success. There was at first a strange unrest and a general un- easiness a feeling of "what are we here for" a sense of the decidedly novel. But when the subject of Austin's weal was finally launched all this gave way to earn- estness and that general and deep interest it was a rare treat to observe. In the de- termination to have a committee of five of Austin's leading citizens upon whose time and consciences should be placed the burden of Austin's advancement the wisest thing in the history of Austin was done. This is the nucleus the town was pining for; this committee will be the mainspring of action; in ...

"Prohibition Pro and Con" is a wei:- wriltan article and to Buch Bn earnest searcher aftar light as "On the Fence' seems to be some ideas suggested may be of great service. His distinction between vice nd crime is excellent but then he seems to lose sight of hU definition aud confuses the vice that is called temperate drinking and the crime that often results from immoderate drinking. He cites the drunkard and the destitution of his family as a "harm to society" and in that sense coming under the head of a crime. Grant- ed the drunkard at that time is criminal and bis actions because of their influence upon his family and through them upon society should be regulated by law. Then the second question suggested comes up How repress his criminal actions for these alone the laws can touoh? By forbidding a saloon keeper from selling liquor to anybody and thus reaching this man or forbidding this man to d...

Or. if true how has it happened Were all these murders of a degree less than first ? Or if of the first degree is our county made up of jurymen believing only in imprisonment and not capniu nunishuieut? The Inws governing the se lection of juries in criminal cnses.makc it impossible for a man having consoien tious scruples against inflicting capital punishment to be accepted as a juror Imprisonment penalties have then in these cases been inflicted either becanse the jurors thought the crimes were murder of the second de- gree or because though of the first degree yet precedent and unbroken custom ...
