The operators had grievances which they had a right to place before the companies and that compromises have already been effected between the operators and two companies is proof that there was at least partial reason for the de mands made upon the companies' Here we know nothing of the strike except its effect upon the operations of the Western Union which to put it ' mildly has been deceiving the public. Its oflicers proclaimed that they would transact business just as thwugh the strike had not occurred announcing a realiness to take all business on certain conditions af fecting its transmission.

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. We give them as follows: In the matter of the removal of W. J. JJurt and R. A.

THE STATESMAN. AUSTIN TEXAS. f . The Federal government has al- ready paid 8700000000 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. A little bravery will cause the university regents to repeal the pro vision against female matriculants The regents know the discrimination Is wrong and to acknowledge and correct the...

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 unruly ca...

THE STATESMAN. AUSTIN TEXAS. The recent failures in New Eng- a nd anions leather men may be taken as evidence that manufacturers have been getting strapped. The line of the New York Texas and Mexican railway has been sur- veyed ten miles to the southward of Goliad. It is thought however that bids may change the line to where the company wish it to go. It is the opinion of the Eastern press that Chandler's defeat for the senate closes his political career. He may hold no more offices but he can leave his present place a good deal richer than he entered it by continu- ing his partnership with John Iloach The receipts on the Texas Pacific from New Orleans to El Paso for the last six months exceeded by 8800.000 those of last year during the same period.

If the Supreme Court of Tennessee give Polk a new chance to outrage the people of that state confidence in courts will be mightily shaken. The kuklux are alive and active in N rthern Georgia.
