Every newspaper man In Texas wll to-day drop a tear \ti memory, of Ham' llton Stuart, "State Press" of The GuU veston-Dallas News. He was the friend of us all, kind as a fattier, gentle as mother. In all respects a brother. In no man of modern times -were the virtues ol gentlemanIIness more manifest. lit* hac: the gallantry of a cavalier with the tenderness tenderness of a woman. . . Ills working life was a model of steadfastness. steadfastness. As regularly as the sun he wenl about his daily task and discharged it cheerily and earnestly, so t h a t when evening came he- h a d - done all that hands found to d o - u n d - h i B and his heart was · happy. Lie was a hut his pen was kindly and he never except to help und enlighten. His learning was as broad as his more than half cent cent u r y of experience and his wit was keener for its long exercise. In private life In: was a model citizen. With only love in his heart for all mankind mankind and the perpetual consciousness of fidelity to every trust he followed the pathway where honor led and which his own genial nature illumined. I l i a methodical habits, his personal purity and his distinguished accomplishments constitute a splendid example of modest success antf 1 He was not a professing: Christian in orthodox sense. But he was a blameless man; lie lived ever in 1 obedience to the laws of God und nature, and went to sleep in righteousness. Gathered on t h e oilier shore- with the heroes and patriots of early Texas, we feel assured, is the sainted presence of Hamilton Stuart. From the Colored Press. To The News: A n o t h e r of r.he old of journalism has passed In to the great Xieyond; a great and $roc«l m;ui will be missed from tho journalistic field. Keen ·in his criticisms, not w i t h malice or i n t e n t , but nilher 'to elevate the newspaper of t h e stale and to -make and t h e i r editors soc-nd to none, lie revered by all., fence to his ashes; may li-ls memory live forever.
