The boasted atrength of opposition to a law prohibitOry of prize fighting in Texas has collapsed. The enthusiastic toúghs who rejoleed in the uttei diseomfiture of the Governor of Texas are, to quote themselves, "going it slow" today. The law is passed. Two years of iraprisonment is the mildest punishment that can be meted to tho3e who particípate in prize üghts in the Lone Star State. Governor Culberson is the most popular man in Texas. But one member of the Senate and but live membors of the House of Representativos mustered in opposiüon to the bill that the Legislature speeially was convenad to pass, and nono of these is likely to gain re-eleetion. The most pieasant reflection upon tho lejjislation that has made an end of prize tighting in Texas is that it was thoroughly in accord with the temper of tho people. The news of the passaga of the bill was wel comed by bonfires and by other demonstrations in all parta of the State. Texas has made a hundred years of progresa in a day. - Intsr Ocean.
