I COAL CO. VOL. 1. THURBER, TEXAS, SATURDAY, APRIL 28, 1894. FLASHES OF THOUGHT. NO. 15. The man of thought strikes deepest, and strikes safely. Few people know how to grow old.—[La Rochefoucauld. An healthy old fellow, who is not a fool, should be happy.— [Steele. When anger rushes unrestrained to action, like a hot steed it stumbles in its way. It is good discretion not to make too much of any man at the first—[Lord Bacon. He who can take advice is sometimes superior to him who can give it.—[Von Knebel. Deliberate with caution, but act with decision; and yield with graciousness, or oppose with firmness.—[Colton. It is safer to affront some people than to oblige them; for the better a man deserves the worse they will speak ofhim.—[Seneca. A slave has but one master, the ambitious man has as many masters as there are persons whose aid may contribute to the advancement of his fortune.—[La Bruyere. He who ascends to mountain tops shall find The loftiest peaks most wrapt in clouds and ...

THE understanding among those most in the confidence of the Administration is that there is to be a bond issue early in the summer.

4 THE TEXAS MINER. TARIFF- TALKS. no. ii. A protective tariff is the application of a tariff on importations in such wise as to prevent actual competition between foreign manufacturers and American manufacturers, as well as a means of raising revenue for the support of the national Government. A revenue tariff, strictly speaking, is a charge made by the Government on imports simply for the purpose of raising reve- nue for the maintenance of the Federal Government without in any wise preventing competition by foreign manufacturers For example, a protective tariff imposes duties on all articles imported which would compete in our markets with like goods of our own production, and admits free of charge such commodities as we cannot grow or manufacture; while a revenue tariff im- poses slight duties on all articles, whether they are exclusively foreign grown or manufactured or are imported to compete with our own products. The one in a measure prevents importation, while the other encou...

THE TEXAS MINER OUR WASHINGTON LETTER. [Special Correspondence of The Texas Miner.] Washington, D. C., April 23, 1894. dolly madison's portrait. Readers of this correspondence will remember a paragraph concerning a proposition before Congress for the purchase of a portrait of Dolly Madison for $5000, which I characterized as ex- travagance. Well, evidently the shot went home, as a new prop- osition has now been made and the price scaled down to $3000. It is too high yet, when the status of the artist is considered. That is what makes the price for private buyers of paintings. in favor of home rule. The strength of the home rule sentiment in the Senate was shown by the vote on the nomination of C. H. J. Taylor of Kan- sas to be Recorder of Deeds for the District of Columbia in the Senate District of Columbia committee. Only two Senators— Martin of Kansas and Harris of Tennessee—voted for a favor- able report; while eight Senators—Faulkner of West Virginia, Hunton of Virginia, Gibson ...

THE TEXAS MINER. TARIFF TALKS. no. iii. From the passage of the first tariff bill (1789) up to 1816 this country knew a period of prosperity that did more toward ce- menting the several states firmly together than any other one thing save the Revolutionary war. In 1816, however, as in 1892, the people grew tired of success and decided to have a change. Then, as now, the Democrats were urging the people to try free trade and the people gave them the opportunity of proving the correctness of their theories. A Democratic Con- gress was elected and the first tariff law, that of 1789, and the amendment of 1812, were repealed, and in their stead was en- acted a "moderately protective tariff." Immediately following the enactment of this moderate tariff business depression began. Manufacturing was at a standstill, bankruptcy and financial ruin became the rule of the day. Horace Greeley said of this period: "At the close of the sec- ond war with England peace found this country dotted with f...
