Special Correspondent toTlic News:
Austin, April 5. There seoms to
be considerable difference of opinion
an to what h understiod by tho term
"political buncumbe" as an instance
of this difference of opinion it is only
necessary to call attention to a concur
rent resolution which Sonator V. W.
Searsy introduced yesterday in the
sonato. His resolution set forth tho
idea that tho intellegent of the land
who bclievo in a government by tho
poople, are partial to an elective rail
road commission. Mr. Seamy is well
aware that only last session a railroad
commission law was passed in which
provision was mado for the appoint
ment of theso officers by the governor
of tho state. Not only Mr.
Searsy, but the intelligent
and interested spootator of current
affairs wero convinced long ago that
tho majority of the Democrats of Texas
wore unwilling to surrender their in
alienable right to namo by direct con
sent tho public sorvant. The mem
bers of tho Twenty-second logiFlaturo
wero aware of this sentiment among
tho peoplo, yet liko dumb drivon
cattlo they first allowed tho chief
executive to get them by shrewd
management into a trap by which ho
obtained their acquieBonoe to tho ap
pointivo plan, and then once com
mitted thev wero poworloss under tho
common rules of consistency to voto
their real choice in the matter. Tho
governor owned body and soul the
Twenty-second legislature or a
majority,whioh is the practical demon
stration of the statement and
ha forced an appointive commis
sion upon the entiro people of tho
With this history before him, sena
tor Searsy introduced his resolution
believing that its subject matter was
eminently germain to the legislation
that is demanded by the Democracy
of tho land. But how was it receiv
ed? Tho most eminent loader of the
Hogg tyrany shot up liko a meteor
and denounced tho resolution as "po
litical buncumbe." Ho thought it
only designed to stir up strife and
unfriendly feeling. That senator is
perhaps the most interesting speaker
in tho senate, and who is, on all mat
ters that eannot bo infected by tho
Hogg miasma, a fair and usoful representative.
This is tho senator from Johnson,
M. M Crano, a quiot and good man,
but he, liko many of tho eminent men
of this and past generations, has some
great weakness that greatly mars the
bymmetry of that which might other
wise be a magnifiaont specimon.
When tho vote was takon thero wore
only 25 senators present. Eighteon
of theso voted "aye" and six voted
"no." Threo who wero in the cham
ber rofused to voto at all, thoso latter
wero Ingram, Kimbrough and Burney.
The six voting against tho resolution
aro Crane, Finch, Frank, Harrison,
MoKinnoy and Weisigor. Sonator
Atloo was absent, but says that if ho had
beon present ho would have voted for
tho amendment. Senator Cartor says
that ho would havo voted against it if
he had been present.
It is safe to predict that tho resolu
tion will fail to pass in tho house.
The chief oxeoutivo of this Btato
whose influence like tho arms of Bri
arinB reaches out and holds within its
deadly embrace some of tho dearest
interests of the people, and who has
waved above tho hoads of tho Twenty
second fiasco tho magic wand of a
mophisto, has no drowsy syrup that ho
can place to tho lips of one bravo and
brilliant young hero and his
namo is niram M. Garwood of Bas
trop county. Last night was the
grandest epoch of his young lifo. It

BROOKS & COWAN,
od for tho receipt of a report on the
international aud groat northern re
oolvnrfchip investigation. Senator Pago
moved the adoption of tho minority
report, and 6poaking to this motion
Senator Garwood recited his connec
tion with tho investigation as a mem
ber of the investigating committee
from tho sonntc, and ombellished his
eloquent lines with a lofty excoriation
that could only fall from tho lips of
truth and from a heart that spurned
all that is ignoblo and deprav
ed. The full text of his
great ad drees can bo found in tho
Ualvoston iNows ot today, and your
correspondent refers to it with a
hearty endorsement of overy line, and
firmly behoves that tho honest peoplo
of Toxas will not only oondemn all
