NEWS FROM: KARNES COUNTY NEWS VOL. 1, NO. 1, 1887

The following are pages 106-118 of  "A History of Karnes County and Old Helena."  San Felipe Press, Austin 1969

 

“ The News would have been out three weeks ago, if our press had arrived at the proper time.   The two railroads over which it came a distance of 130 miles were twenty days in transporting it that distance. As we now have the plant in working order. we promise a prompt appearance of The News in the future.

“The first subscriber for The News is Capt. R. P. Fly of Cotulla, sheriff of LaSalle County.   Capt. Fly has been in Southwest Texas for many years and is famous as one of the most sagacious and energetic police and detective officers in the State.  He is well known to many people here and has not a few warm friends in Karnes County.

“Karnes County has the reputation of being a tough, lawless section. It might have been so in the past but such a state of affairs exists no longer. It is populated with an honest peaceable and law-abiding people. In proof of this, the last grand jury after several days work returned but one bill, and that was only a misdemeanor.  Few counties can show as clean a record.

“Professor J. W. Brown, principal of the school at Kenedy was in town last Saturday on school business.

“Mr. John T. Pyle, the boss carpenter of Helena has gone down to Runge to finish up Judge Archer’s job.

“Mr. Lee Fore of Beeville, visited the family of Mr. John Rutledge, his Father-in-law. this week. and returned home on Wednesday.

“Judge Archer is having a commodious two-story building erected at Runge, which will be occupied by L. C. Tobin as a hotel. Verily Runge is to be a city of hotels.  'Long may she wave.'

“Died on Tuesday, October 25, at his home in Karnes County about four  miles below Helena, Mr. John Wofford.  Thus passes away to his eternal rest, a good honest man, in whom 'there was no harm.'  "Requiescat in peace."

“Moses Williams who was in jail on a charge of theft of corn, gave bond and was released from prison by Capt. Rudd on Thursday morning.  This leaves the county jail empty.

“Mr. August Kraege father of Mrs. A. Meyer, and Mrs. Wilhelmine Meyer, mother of Mr. A. Meyer, both of Yorktown, were in town this week visiting their son and daughter.

“A mail route from Runge to Goliad has been established and the service will begin, between those two points, early in November next when there will be direct daily postal connection between Helena and Goliad.   And still we move.

“Mr. Wm. Custer was in town Monday. Billy has purchased a good piece of land near Runge, and is now building himself a comfortable house on it, and will move with his family to in soon, where he will reside in Future. Billy deserves success and we hope he may fully realize it.

“Mrs. Maggie Bailey has moved to Runge which will be her future home.  Her many friends here regret to see her leave, but unite in best wishes for her welfare.

“Judge Wilson and Capt. Rudd went to Runge today to investigate the case of a man found wounded and insensible near the railroad crack, supposed to have fallen or been thrown from a moving car.

“Last week the sheriff and indeed everybody else in town were surprised at the appearance in town of Will Burris who only a few days previous had burned a hole in the jail floor and escaped.  He came in with a bond in his pocket and a Dooley County smile on his face. Capt. Rudd accepted his bond and he went his way rejoicing. Someone asked him what he burnt out of jail for.   ‘H – – – e I wanted to rustle a bond,’ said he; ‘I didn’t want to stay jail six months.'

“Runge is on a real boom.   Several good frame buildings are in course of construction, besides those already completed. At the present. rate it bids fair to become the metropolis of Karnes county.  'Let ‘er go Gallagher.’

“Mrs. Sarah Elder and her children have through their attorneys, Graves and Little, brought suit against the S.A.A.P. Railroad Co. for $56,000, damages for breach of contract by failing to keep and maintain a depot at Kenedy, Karnes County, Texas.

“Mr. A. Meyer this week put in operation a branch house at Runge.  Mr. Emil Schultz the energetic and popular bartender who has worked for him here a long time, will take charge of the branch house, and of course Emil will get there with both feet.”
