AN APPKAL TO GOV. HOGG FOlt AI1.

Austin, Tex., July 1. Got. Hogg has
been appealed to earnestly in behalf of
the starving people of La Salle county,
eighty miles southwest of San Antonio,
on the Arkansas, International and
Great "Northern railway for aid to enable
them to reach the cotton districts where
they may find work. A call for food has
been issued also. The appeal gives a
hideous picture of the drouth and deso
lation in that section. In three years it
has not rained a drop. . The prairies,
once carpeted with rich grasses, are as
bare as a billiard table. The streams
have gone dry, and there is no water
anywhere. For any distance as far as
the eye can reach there is not a spot of
green-. "The sun, , reflected from the
white earth, makes the glare and heat
almost unbearable. Deer, turkeys and
other wild animals have left. . Even, the
familiar jack rabbit has disappeared.
All the cattle and sheep have been sold
and shipped into other states. Many of
the Mexicans are cowboys, or soldiers.
They have no means of subsistence, and
some of them have tried to farm it, but
the seed sown two. years ago remains
unsprouted in the ground. From La
Salle county alone 72,000 head of sheep
have been removed.
' Chicago Mail. The tea plant can be
grown as well in many . parts of the
United States as in any district of China,
and from experiments that have been
made it is believed -that the ' product is
quite as good in this country as in the
Flowery Kingdom. There is no prob
ability that American tea will ever com
pete with the Chinese article, for the
latter is manipulated by labor so cheap
that Americans would starve to death
on the wages. Until the American
laborer can live "on three or four cents a
day no one need expect that tea. will
become an extensive article of produc
tion in this country.

Elections , in England start in with
whoops, howls, and disorder.-- A mob at
Lambeth yesterday handled Stanley and
his wife shamefully. With the aid of
the police, however, the disturbance was
subdued, and by sheer power of lung
and perseverance, Stanley was able to
make himself heard for about twenty
seven minutes. Mrs... Stanley was
hooted down. The instant she turned
all restraint on the meeting vanished
and the crowd became a hooting and
fighting mob. Mr. Stanley hastily
started with Mrs. Stanley for the door,
and his supporters in the audience tried
to hurry after him.' They had to fight
their way to the door, through blows and
abuse, most of them coming out with
their hats smashed and their clothes
torn. The mob broke from the doors of
the hall with a rush and swept down on
Mr, Stanley's carriage. He had barely
got Mrs. Stanley inside when they were
upon him. Somebody grabbed him by
the arm to pull him back, but he tore
himself loose, jumped in and slammed
the door, and the mob followed, pulling
at the carriage doors, and trying to stop
the horses. They wrenched one door,
but before they could do more the driver
got his. horses into a gallop, and was
soon beyond their reach. Mrs. Stanley
was badly frightened. " She was almost
in hysterics w hen she left the hall, and
she screamed several times during the
mob's attack upon the carriage. -

Milwaukee, Wis., July 1. A reckless
colored fellow, (the son of- a washer
woman in this city, has been royally en- "
tertained of late in Toledo, where he re
presented himself to be 'the son of the
Zulu king, Cetewayo, and the rightful
heir to the throne of Zulu, land. Ae
soon as he struck Toledo he, commenced '
giving lectures for the benefit, he
claimed, of the heathen in Africa." Tip
po Tip was received with open arms by
the church people of the city, and se
cured admittance by virtue of his prince
ly atributes to some of the best families
in the city. - His cariosity to investigate
the interior of the houses was supposed
to be mere savage curiosity, and he was
allowed perfect freedom. It now turns
out that the wily Tip had two con
federates. They are Walter Rice and
Henry Wood. After Tir hadlocatedthe -houses,
Rice and Wood got in their work
as professional burglars, and the houses; -of
the upper-ten have been systematic
cally robbed of jewelry, money, etc., to
the extent of thousands of dollarsi The.,
trio are under arrest. . ("

the words: "We reached here yester-,.

doing as well as could be expected. The
reindeer we left here are alive and doing

Tilegram. Who is' "Funk,vof Ore
gon?" The dispatches say such a man ia
an advance delegate to the Omaha '
convention, and .that he is a Weaver
man. Is it possible that Oregon has v
sent a delegate to that convention who
is not for Oregon's governor for the pres
dential nominee? Mr. Funk, whoever
he is, ought to have state pride enough
to stick to Penuoyer, first,' last and be
tween, times. Especially when it is a
fact that our governor would really be
the strongest nomination the Omaha
convention could make. ' .. , . ' -
