ought to subinltsuch an amendment.! Mr. Fleming-I am dad (hat (he
as will enable us to support theschools
by a state tax for at least six months
In tho year, and in order to have ten
months schools In localities it can be
obtained li v allowing the people In (he
dlllerent districts to vote a tax for a
longer term. If (hey do not want the
schoolrt they can vote them down and
still have the beuelit of the six months
schools provided for by tho stato ta.v.
The legislature of Texas linasecn proj
er thus to provide for cities and towns
but haVo refused tho pilvelego (o pop
ulous and wealthy country precincts;
and there 1s no reason for tho unjust
discrimination; If towns and cities
liavo this pilvllego it ought also to bo
extended to the country. Though the

Now this calculation is bie-ed upon
tho present scholastic- ago; but If. the
scholastic ago Is Increased, as it ought
to he, ho as to Include all between thu
ages of six and twenty-one- years (he
per capita will only bo 52,110, and this
amount will not millleo to support tho

they are now maintained. A system

llxed at eight as the minimum and
fourteen as tho maximum Is a fraud,
.and llio Hoouur wo acknowledge t (ho

If it Is extended, as 1 feel eoulldout It
will be, tho tax of llfteen cent will

uttered the anieudmuut to llx It at not
less than llfteen and not. exceeding

"Why can we not trust future legisla
tures of thin state'.' Why should we
lay down tut indexible rule that will"
prevent the people from levying u tax

ten months In tho year'.' My experi
ence and observation teach nic that It
Is uiiwiio to lay down unbending con
stitutional rules. Wo can allbrd to
say It shall not exceed thirty cents,
because In doing so u reasonable and
sulllelent tax can bo levied; but If you
restrict tho amendment to a stated tax
or fifteen cents, you take away front
tho legislature tho power to lncreaso
or decrease tho amount, except by a
change In (hoconstltutlou.
Tho senator front Travis, In advoca
ting tho district system, say the tato
system lcsults lit Injustice to the peo
ple of the more populous rotiutiiw, be
cause they pay a much lavger sum
than they receive back In tho educa
tion or tltelr children, and (hut tho
less populous counties receive a bonus
front the state fund. Tho argument
of (ho senator from TravW, If carried
mil to lt legitimate conclusion,
aniotuita simply lo this, that you
ought not to impose a tax upon tho
people of a rich and populous county
to educate tho children In n county
less fortunate; that you might not to
Impose a tax upon a wealthy man to
educate the children of a man who Is
not wealthy; that you ought not to

Mr. Terrell -I did not say Unit von
ought not to tax one county for 'tho
benellt of another . I "Imply expicssed
the apprehension that if you taxed too
much you dimply cause a reaction
against tho school system.
Mr. Flomiiig--.lt Is true von did not
say so In so many words, but that Is
tho legitimate and only conclusion
that can bo drawn from your argu
ment. I voted for the amendment of-
tereii iy lite senator from Jlexar, not
because I preferred it, but that I es
teemed it the best next to the one of
fered by myself.
I believe, however, that with tho ex
ception that It does not llx a mini
mum, it Ih a good provision. Ilv say
ing wo shall not exceed Iwcnty-llvo
cents, w do away with tho necessity
of a minimum tax, which some sena
tors think Is best, ho that If we wish to
conduct the schools at a tax less than
llfteen cents, there would be no eon
slllutloiial provision In the way of
limiting a reduction of the tax.
SlU. Pur-STPKNT :
If 1 may be permitted in my place
upon tins noor to do M), l wish to hay
that I am a member of the Democratic
party, ami that our last platform
pledged us to tho establishment of an
elllcient system of schools. I desire
to call tho attention of gentlemen to
the fact, thai not more than throe gen
eral elections ago the inajorltv of that
party In Texas was 10-',000. 1 also de
sire In this connection to direct their
attention to tho fact that at tho last
geneial election Democratic success
was assured by a majority just a little
In oxcess of 10,q0().
Mr. Huohunan What kind of a
platform dill the Democratic party run
on tills tlnto'.' Was It not free schools,
log cabin schools,
Mr. Fleming Yes, sir; tho plat-'
form declared that we should provide
an etllelent system of public free
schools, and we havo had tho saute
provision In our platforms so often
that tho peoplo begin to doubt our as
soitton and ipieatlon our good faith.
Legislatures under tho control of the
Democratic party have met tlnto and
again and have failed lo redeem these
pledges, ls tho same policy to bo con
tinued V Have you no respect of these
solemn promises? They will hold tho
Democratic- party responsible for our
action here. I direct your attention to
these pledges and to tho result of the
last elections. I assort that in less
than three years you havo reduced the
Democratic majority in this stato front
11)2,(100 to 10,000.
Mr. (loooh The Democratic party
has not decreased ajiy in tho last six
years; It Is Immigration that has In
creased. Mr. Fleming--1 stato that Iho Dem
ocrat lo party has decreased, and It will
continue to decrease unless wo redeem
our pledges upon this question of free
schools. Senators usnert upon this lloor
that they are In favor of public frro
schools but when tho ptopositlon ia
made to perfect that system, they ale
tho llrst to vote against It. 1 tell von

Wo should occupy a position in ad
vance of all other states In tho union.
I desire to plaeo Texas In advance of
senators from Travis and Cooke indi
cate to my mind that they favor a
district system and not a .stato tax. I
say that it Is the duty of tho Dcmo
ciallo party to give us a state school
tax that will carry on tho schools in
Iho state for at least six months In the
year, and I will vote then to tax the
distilctsin thocountryllo supplement
tho fund derived from I he stato by a
tfrx stilllclent to carry on tho schools
tor four months longer. I believe it
to bo our duty to redeem the pledges
of tho Democratic party made to Un
people of Texas, and 1, for one, intend
to redeem them as far as my indi
vidual effort will go. I wish no longer
to hco you drive men out of tho Demo
cratic ranks Into thu riidlpendent or
Republican parties by continuing to
break Its piuty pledges. Tho people
will no longer bo satisfied
with assertions. If any ono had hoard
the professions of tho senator from
Travis be would have thought hint an
advocate of free schools, but when ho
voted on tho qucstioi of increasing
tho .scholastic ago ho voted "JSTo!
Upon every proposition to increase tho
tax, or rather the power of tho leglsla
turo to impose a tax' in excess of lUcen
cents, lie voted "No!" He made an
argument or two hours' length against
that proposition even, but finally
voted for It. 1 do not understand how
gentlemen can bo such friends of the
public Jfrce schools of Texas and
at tho samo time voto against
them. The senator front Cooke
has asked tho senator from
Travis if there Is any state that meas
ures tho number or children thoy send
to school by the amount of tho fund,
and he was hound lo answer, "ho
know of none." Nearly every stato i suit of their Avhtem of mililio uoimnh

me superintendent ot punlio oduca
tlou In New Hampshire says the dls-
nubllo frco schools.
1 Mr. Davls-I donH any that you
mist do this or that or the othc. 1
Z referring to what ca.no from your
side, that "unless you do this jo
would not give us a iHstrlot system."
Mr. Fleuiing-rum glad to havolhe
explanation from the senator front
Cfloko. I nut perfectly willing to con-
cede him the district system in pan,
but not exceeding a term of lour
months. 'ot that I belleyo that is the
best system. My own opinion is that
the state system is tho best, because- a
burden upon the entire stato would bo
much lighter than the same burden
placed upon districts It relegated to
tho district system, It would require
the levy of a lax of ono per trout, to
carry on the schools in the weaker and
simrcely settled counties. Yet with a
state tax of thirty cents we would be
able to conduct the system of public
schools for ten months In the year. T
would bo willing to see a minimum
tax without other qualifications, but
there is no hope for it hero, f believe
the principle has been engrafted into
the constitution that public free schools
are for the benellt of tho entire state.
It Is not for the benellt of a locality. 1
desire to vote for the most liberal ap
propriations. The state system ia the
best, and I will voto for It, although J
am classed by the senator from Cooke
as being on tho "contrary and losing
side." Air. President, it has been my
misfortune to co-operate with tho sen
ator from Cooke on sovetal important
questions, Of them J will mention
the repeat of the mandamus law, and
invariably when r have found myself
acting with him it turned out that I
was on tho "contrary and losing side."
Our constitution, lecogulzlng the prin
ciple or univurfral suffrage, has confer
red upon all classes of the people the
prerogative of citizenship, and it lsour
duty to prepare them for the intelli
gent exercise of such a responsibility.
Mr. Davis-1-! want to ask
Mr. Fleming No, fair: r decline to
bo further interrupted. 1 object to any
expIanaMon from the senator from
Cooke, for fear that his explanation
might bring me over to his side again;
and I am .satisfied (hat tho senator
from Cooke wilTnot voto for this prop
osition, because ho will persist in re
maining on tho "contrary and losing
side." I havo followed his lead I have
advocated his propositions until 1 am
placed in tnat category by the senator
'himself. T propose to cut loose from
tho lead of the senator fiom Cooko and
follow somebody who is not always on
the "contrary and losing side" of all
questions. t havo looked Into the
question some ntysolf, and, notwith
standing f know he is a very great man
and a talented man, and that ho has
occupied that position in tlio country
I must cut loose from hint from fear
that I will remain on the contrary
and losing side. He has arrogated to
himself tho right to speak for the peo
ple on all questions. There are others
in tills senate who have artogated to
themselves to speak for tho agricul
tural people of this country, and oth
ers, to speak for tho cities, towns and
school precincts, r waut it distinctly
understood that I represent no clas's
upon this lloor, but that I represent
the stato of Texas and I de.slro to see
tho interests of every class protected.
Hut to resume.
The report of tho superintendent of
public freo schools of Now Hampshire
shows that tho effect of the district
school system is to concentrate tho
wealth and population of a state in
cities and towns, and that will bo the
result in our stato unless tho system is
properly guarded. Wo are now de
populating tlte country and compell
ing tho agricultural population to How
Into cities and towns hy the law per
mitting them to levy a special tax to
maintain the schools in their corpor
ate limits. '
Look at Galveston, Brenham, Aus
tin, Houston and San Antonio. Thov
ate tilling up rapidly, and it is the re-
tliat has established and maintained
tm elllcient system of public free
schools has fixed Iho scholastic age
with tho minimum at live and the
maximum at twenty-one years.
Hut rather than should wo fail to
amend tho constitution, I am willing
lo vote for tho amendment oll'ered by
the senator from Morris, not because 1
am in favor of 11; I am In favor of no
amendment unless It looks to tho es
tablishment of a reasonable minimum
tax. t would bo in favor of a mini
mum of twcnly-flvo cents and a max
mum of llfty cents. I have not ollbred
such nn amendment hero, because
I was satisfied that there
was no prospect and no pos
sibility of its passing tho
.Senate. Tain further satlslled that
unless homo measuro Is agreed upon,
as a matter of compromise, that all
legislation upon the subject will bo de
feated. Tho senator from Cooke taunts
tho majority with being unyielding.
I know of no senator upon this lloor
wuo nas Known
willing lo conccdothe district system
for four months as a compromise, but
that is also against my best judgment:
Woarowble to do it, and H should be
made a stato system.
Mr. President, I havo always been
an earnest advocate of public freo
schools. Tn tho constitutional conven
tion of lf75 1 voted for every measuro
that looked lo the establishment of nn
elllcient system, it is the duly or thu
statesmen of Texas, looking to tlio
magnificent possibilities of her future,
to proparoher children and tlio gener
ations that will follow them, for tho
grand responsibilities that her mature
development will thrust upon them.
In tho discussion or this great ques
tion, lam seeking, by my voto and I
voleo, to redeem tho pledges i
of tho great party of which
I am un humble member.
I am seeking to pltico this state in tho
front rank, to keep hor full up to the
mark, up to the standard of tlio high
est, in tlio great cause of educa
tion; to engraft upon her constitution
in no uncertain language those great
principles of constitutional liberty
which nro inseparably connected uni
versal suffrage and universal educa
tion. I am striving toolevntotheniiHsos
of her people, that they may conquer
for her in her onward march the
grandest civilization that over Illus
trated tho history of a freo people.
