2 tup: statesman. AUSTIN. TEXAS. OUR WASMXGTOX LETTER. Washington Feb. 28. To the Editor of the Statesman: All Americans justly contend that this is the freest country under the sun; here the poor and oppressed from all the nations of the earth may come and live and legislate under a tlag and government that respects the voice of the laborer equally with one blessed with an abundant share of the world's "good things. There is supposed to be no respect of antecedents in the re- public and the son of a rag-gatherer can by energy and application rise to the highest position afforded by our institutions with the same certainty as the son of a senator or the son of a millionaire." The framers of our con- stitution intended that the laws should be the same for every one. But with all our boasted liberty would it not be well for our public men to pay some attention to our courts and sys- tem of trials V To an observant mind it would seem that we are FAST DRIFTING AWAY from the teachings of...

Mrs. Lanotry has been playing Freddie Gebhardt and now Freddie is going to play the Lilly. The Xw York papers tell us that he becomes her manager for a long engagement in this country next year. The Dallas Times has its agents in Austin and it Is unnecessary for it to ask the Statesman to inform it on a matter patent to them and to all men that Gov. Ireland used his influence for these penitentiary leases. The Statesman does not ask these sensitive legislators to circulate any that mav ventilate the v. t I - lease riuestioi.
