A somewhat analogous valley to that of the Canadian is to be found on the Indian Territory side of Red river between the 98th and 06th me- ridian*, as transected by the Missouri, Kansas and Texas and the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railways. Here the modem Red river flows through an ancient alluvial deposit of from twenty to forty miles in widlh, filled mostly with the debris of the Red beds, and far above the altitude of the present stream. Too little is known of this valley to discuss it here, except to say that itc direction suggests a continuation with the Canadian valley on the west and the Little Missouri on the east. Nearly all of the Grand Prairie north of Red river has been destroyed by this erosion. THE RIVER TERRACES OF THE BLACK PRAIRIE AND E0-L1GNITJC REGIONS. All the li...

■■ THE SOUTHERN MERCURY: DALLAS, TEXAS, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1891. Alliance Sub-Treasury Scheme, or de eadent for their aupport, ud tha* National Currency. The political buaco-i'.eereri of both the old partiea for the last twenty odd yean have, by false issues, been lead ing the people blindfold into all kinds of political traps, in which they have been robbed and plundered for the enrichment o them and their pals, the money Itngs, until they, the people, have been reduced to financial and industrial servitude. The financial question, including mainly the curren- cy question, is a far more important one than the tariff or other questions, however important it or they may be. The people can stand a great deal of mismanagement of governmental af- fairs, if they have a stable and uniform national currency in sufficient volume with which to transact their business with ease and without friction. It is the duty of every government to fur* nish its people with that sort of cur. rency. Wi...

Thomas Dixon, Jr.J Some time ago Senator John J In* gallis of Kansas, weat out of his way in a public interview to express the opinion that the Decalogue and Golden Rule are out of place in a political campaign. He also took occasion to heap his unmeasu-ed contempt on those who were pained at the corrup. tion of modern politics. These people he characterized with withering gall as sexless sentimentalists. He expressed himself at that time in the following viitriolic style: "The purification of politics is an ir- ridescent dream. Government is force. Politics is a battle for supremacy. Parties are the armies. The Decalogue and the Golden Rule have no place in a political campaign. The object is success. To defeat the antagonist and t xpel the party in power is the purpose. In war it is lawful to deceive the adversary, to hire Hessians, to pur- chase mercenaries, t...

THE SOUTHERN MERCURY: ♦ DALLAS, ..«rU, ' 1 I . t, TEXAS, THURSDAY, FFBRUARY 12, 1891. Colonisation and Revolution. [From our Waco Correspondent ] THE REPUBLIC OF TEXAS. San Jacinto is one of the decisive battles of the world. The brilliancy of its conception pales not before the strategy of ancient or modem times, and the daring displayed in its execu- tion eclipses the chivalry of deeds preserved in song and story. The slaughter of the Alamo and the mas- sacre of Goliad imparted to the cour- age of the Texans the energies of re- venge and despair, and the patriot became the avenger of the martyrs whose blood invoked vengeance upon the memory of tyranny. The Fabian policy of Houston had entrapped the "Napolean of the West." The vandal of the Alamo was the captive of the hero of San Jacinto, the butcher of La Bahia was the suppliant lor that mercy he had so treacherously abused, and the "Die ator of Mtxico" bowed to the dictation of the Washington o Texas. Houston's enemies were sile...

Entirely distinct in every character- istic of age and itructure are the mountains constituting the southern margin of the Texas region. These can be briefly defined as occupying the country west of the Pecos in Texis and New Mexico, and their continua- tion into the republic of Mexico, their northern margin approximately coin- ciding with the Rio Grande, east of the mouth of the Pecos. No attempt has been made to study and classify them, and to-day almost nothing is pub- lished concerning the details of their structure, history and relations to each other. So far as known they consist of numerous peaks, mesas and ridges —isolated or in groups—to the indi- viduals of which over thirty distinct names have been applied in Texas alone. Some of these, as has been recorded, may possess gra...

f"}-:9 THE SOUTHERN MERCURY: DALLAS, TEXAS, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1891. J 1 111 Look Around and See. [Uy W. II. Gotzundaner.] Recently in scanning the columns of a Texas newspaper, I noticed the statement that, a man of means or of much family influence could not be punished for the commission of crime in Texas. The same statement has often been heard in social conversa- tion. Not that there is a different code of laws for the rich and influential, but that money and influence will com- mand such legal ability as will certain- ly defeat the state, that is, the people in the prosecution. Is this true? Is it partially true? Look around and see. It is often the case that communities are shocked; even the whole state is shocked by the commission of .some heinous crime, the particulars of which are well known in the community and made known to the public through the press of the state. 'We need but re- fer to the Urazealle case in southwest Texas, the murders in Waller county and Madiso...

1 Bfr? ■ ■■ • THE SOUTHERN MERCURY: DALLAS, TEXAS, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1801. I ! I Y I For The Southern Mercury. ▲ Great Curse. [By Rov. Thomas Dixon, Jr.] Gambling is the most fascinating occupation with which a fallen human* ity ever dissipated life, manhood and character. It is the debauchery of man's spiritual nature. It rests upon Vthe foundation of religion itself. ?or this reason it utterly damns the whole man, physical, mental, moral spiritual. It is the fertile mother of a thousand other viees and crimes. Forgery, theft, drunkenness, lust, brutality, are its boon companions. Gambling has thrown its deadly shadow upon society in many ways and many disguises. It stalks through the market place wrapped in the sacred mantle of a world's commerce, beneath which is concealed its poisoned dag? der. It revels in the dive and the brothel. It lures the almond Mongo- lian to his ruin. It introduces the bootblack to the policy shop. It sneaks into the schoolhouse and offers to ed- u...

THE SOUTHERN MERCURY: DALLAS, TEXAS, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1891. ñ I Constitutional Convention. Addressing the house of representa tives on hit resolution that "a conven- tion to frame a new constitution for Texas was neither necessary nor expe- dient," Judge Terrell said: I waive all objection to the taste exhibited by the gentlemen, (Mr. Gresham), when he repeats here the unguarded remarks made by me in the committee room. It is a matter of taste in which one coming from Gal- veston should be able to instruct me. His object is manifestly to array against we the prejudices of the rail- toad employes of Texas. New that Ibe may have the full benefit ei what I did say and of what I think as to their peonage, let me repeat: I draw a broad distinction between the inde- pendence of the man who serves a fellowman, into whose human face he can look and to whose human heart he can appeal, and that man who serves a master who hides its artificial face behind a corporate mask and is- sues or...
