The Fort Worth (lA.irrn: strongly
favors the calling of an extra he.-slon of

bound to trcrvc, in order that he may
bo able to attend to the duties of ids
olllce. While tho fJA.rrn: loaves the
public ill some doubt as to tlio t-pldt

does not feel Justified in dissenting

quiillcilioii that Governor fni:r.N! is
