views wnro ticnornlly Indorsed by our

uto to tho manhood nnd patriotism of tho
people and expressed confidence tit their
nbillty tofuiatalp a locat sellffovciDinent
After opening the subject of ttiu ffiiber
aaturlal canvas ho alluded to tho epeech
of Gon ltoss at Sulphur Springs ami
nald ho way surprised that on a candi
date for governor ho did not iIUcuih and
dcclaro la favoi of noma ntato policy to
bu pursued by him In cane of hln election
But Instead tlio genoral had aHSUined the
Karb of a ward politician and has opened
old ltsneu that have passed eleven years
That ho had told how he with others of
bis associates In tlio constitutional con
vention In 187C pet aside 3000000 actes
of tho public domain In ono body for
tho purpose of bulldlwr a
now atato capllol That General
Hohh had not oven tried to provide that
tho land should bo sold In email lots
Tho only restriction soucbt to bo placed
upon It was that It should not bo placed
npon tho market under ten years Kwaln
contended that If It was wrung to sell
1000000 acres In one body tho conven
tion was tho place to check It Hut lun
ltoss did not tell his hearers that ho had
voted a smokebonne and corncrib tax
npon alt tho fanuera of tho state which
cost tho people 80000 to repeal That
ho and his associates In that convention
authorized tho ucncral Incorporation net
by which tlio foreign and domestic cor
poration woru Incorporated and have
labeit poMemlon of tho lanhnudlo to the
great detriment nnd annoyance of tho
actual settler who desires to Hud a homo
lu tho West
Answering l n Hoss < uentlon as to
what part lie Hwaln took in tho senate
upon tho capltolland question Col
Hwaln said that ho had voted to sell In
small umilltHHbut falling lu that It was
lluAlly agreed that u capltol board bo es
tublUlicd coimliUlnj of tho live elective

to utilize tlio land to tho best nihiii
tnijo as their judgment should
direct Tiat that boaut mado tho contract
fur tho disposition of the land and tho
tmUdlna of tho capltol before ho came
Into nlllcu Col Swain said that ho should
not have alluded to these tliliif8 If On
Hoss had not mentioned them That the
question Involved had been discussed In
tho press of the statu and ho presumed
oyery lntolllirent reader understood thorn
Col Swain said that hu was sull satis
lied with his record ou these questions
and oepeclnlly tho vote for a chiumo lu
tlio material from llmestono to granite
That his vote on tho Indiana Hmostonu
proposition and those ol his two associates
Walsh nud Tompleton had been tlio
means ot cccutluK tho chanuo to Kranlto
of which alt the people In Texan should
bo proud Ho said thut leu ltoss had
showu us much Ignorance when ho said
tlm channo would bo a million dollars ad
vantage to thu contractor in ho did when
ho said that thu now capltol would cost
only ono nud a hulf million dollars that
tho bust of our architects had liqured thu
cost of tho tuilldloir to bo near four mil
lions of money and that tho cost In
uranllo over llimsumo would bo ovor six
hundred thousand dollars Heptrdluu the
possession of tho capltol lands Uuv
Huberts had long bro decided that the

said that ho had repeatedly declared that
if necessary ho would nsustich forooaiut
itny other nt his command to cufotoo
obedleiicu to law That ho would uphold
tho constitution tu all Its ineuulnir and
that so tar as ho could do U would make

Col Swain paid a glowing tribute to
tho Iawabidluj people ot thu stale and
said thoy paid taxes to support this bit
tallon ond expected at least some pio
tedtlun at their hands He said Hoss was
nffeotvd with constitutional qualms and
had hCQoiiin bald from a superior
knowlcdfjo of thu constitution That it
ltoss watt Kovornor tho law would have to
enforce itself and from recent tloniou
strailous hore IVxiw would noon be in a

threo years is subject to taxation as
thouRb It Was tho property ot tho lessee
Ho showed clc rly that If Oon Hoss
Ideas prevailed a Cblueso wall would bo
erected beyond which no settlorcoutd go
Col Swain deprecated such policy
and said that Instead of establishing
peaco on tho Western border It would
open up new fields of Btrlfe which would
retard tho settlementof tho country for
twenty years
The cattlemen had declared In favor of
tho lease policy nnd sll would Join lu a

Col Swoln quoted tho Democratic plat
form of 1881 to show thattholcsBo policy
was tho ono espoused by tho Democ
racy of Texas Ho sold that
Col Jones ran on tho oppo
sltlon ticket In 1881 on tho
platform now occupied by Gen Hoss If
ha had any platform Hoss had said that
tho lfaiu policy had como near disrupting
tho Democratic party Ho Is presumed
to hnvo been with Col Jones In 1881 at
any rate ho Is now a convert to the Jones
doctrlue tho sarao that every Greenback
er lu the laud holds to freo air free
water nnd frco land That It Hoss had
any notion of running as an independent
candidate In 1881 as his rcmurk would
seem to Indicate ho niicht stand a little
cbanco now With his f icoRrass vagaries
ho might get tho disaffected Knights of
Labor and all Orccnbuckcrs Hepubllcans
and Knownothlngs In tho land Hoss was
a prohibitionist In 187Cwhcn ho helped tlx
up tho localoption constitution and ho
was In favor of It In 1881 when ho Voted
for It In tho senate and ho was In favor
of It In 188S but Coke Mills nnd
Clarlto told him hu had lo say lo
cal option was undemocratic and ho
forthwith went tu Loreua and
said It was against personal liberty
Hoss didnt speak his convictions They
told him to say it nnd ho said It Hoss
charges In Iarls that tho grass comml
slouvrs had been sent out to electioneer
for Swain It was not true as It was not
known whether more than two of them
favored Swain aud If they had said any
thing In favor of him ho presumed It was
about as right aud proper as for thu mili
tary and educational departments of the
statu to bo used In running over tho state
to IIx up thu prlnmtles for Hoss Tho
grass commissioners had done and wcro
still doing much good Somo ot them bo
understood wero lor Hoss If any ot tbem
nero not doing good work It was those
ofthntsort Col Swain said that tho
Kulglits of Labor and farmers alllanco
wero creating it grout deal of un
easiness In tho statu mora from
fear of their political uctlon Ho did
not fear that they would do any
thing to liijuro the country or hud
particular designs upon tho party Hn
felt satlslled that there wero Hepttiillcatis
nud iirecnijiickors trying to uso these so
cieties to dicluro lu favor of a now party
and now leaders many would go with

Mr Frarer voluuteorod tho lnlormatlou
that ho Fraiet was present at thu Knon

aud let counsel orguo thereupon and

Then after counsel ha e done presenting

zktik Yours tohand concerning my
opinion as to tho Jury law neccssury
changes etc In reply I will say that with
tho present status of society 1 know ol
no change that could ho ifleeted that
would bo bnnellclnl It Is title the sys
tem Is Insufllcient to sccuro the enforce
meut ot justice but I know of no way
out only to have educated men for jurors
which Is Impossible at picpent 1 am In
tavorof taking tho judiciary onof the
hands of the people nnd havo our district
judges cjpeclally appointed by tho gov
ernor and continued by tho senate which
I think would bo qulto an Improvement
I am opposed to district judges scrum
bllng torolllcc I think that our courts
on account of mere technicalities too
often turn men loose whoso guilt Is
clearly established I dont think our
district judges as a general thing nro
explicit enough In tholi oharaesto juries

Gazkitk Your letter of February 5 to
hand and for answer I will say that it Is
my opinion that tho present jury law of
Texas Is as perfect ns It Is possible to
mako It I Uilnk under the amendment
pa sed at Its last session of tho legisla
ture chapter 100 page 00 nets ot Nine
teenth legislature ns good jurors can be
obtained to try crlmlual cames as tho
material ot tho country affords I am of
tho opinion howovor that other changes
In tho criminal practlco might bo made
that would greatly conduce to tho cuds
of justice
1 If the law should only require of tho
court to Instruct tho jury what facts they
should find In order to convict or acquit
without til tho law now requites sub
mitting to them obstrtiso propositions of
law thoy would bu belter able to ascer
tain their duties
2 If tho court was required to prepare
his eharga ond submit tho fame to tho
attorneys beforo they nro required to
nrguo tfio case to the jury It would
yreatly expcdltu business and nld tho jury
In tho puifonnaucu of their duty
I find that tho greatest obstacle to
criminal justice Is In properly Informing
the lury as to their exact duties

tor Gazkttk Sin Your lavor of tho
4th Inst asking my opinion upon Needed
changes In the jury law Is at hand It
contemplates a brio reply and I say In
response that the jury system is tho great
means whereby justice miscarries In civil
and criminal cases It calls upon thu
sympathetic and lgnoraut to determine
questions which ought lo be vlowetl with
out prejudice and with tho clearest possl
tile judgment Questions of fact tiro ln <
sepaiitblu from questions of law and of
the litterjuries aro wholly uninformed
The system should bo abolished and If
this be Impossible such n modlllcailon
should take placo as would render a ma
jority crdlct effective

zutik Yours of recent date to hand
In reply I will tay that thero aio some
needed changes lu our lury law In my
opinion which if made woula octter
secure the ends of Justice
1 Tho present law In reference to
selectingjurjnienbya jury commission
should be repealed and a law enacted In
Its stead muking It the duty of the county
commbsloners to act as a jury commis
sion Tho teasous for this change lire
numerous The commlMloucrs come
from different parts ot tho county and
are better acquainted wlltthe people and
know better nbout tho disqualifications
ot men In their respective precincts than
three men picked up at the end of the
term of the district court as Is now
done
2 Tho grand jury should bo
Impaneled for two terms Instead ot
one Arrange It so six new gtand jurors
would come Into tho box at each term of
district court Every prosecuting at
torney who has lind much to do with
grand juries knows that there Is at each
town of court moro or less uullnlshcd
business It tt for the next grand jury to
complete and with six of tho old jury in
the box such business would bo com
pleted mueii quicker and many a missing
link woulo bu found which Is under the
present urmngemeiit never looked for
11 Give no sttto and defendant each
ten peremptory challenges In capital
cases
4 AboilIt juries in justices courts
and strip said courts ol nil criminal juris
diction
fi Require comity and district judges
to read their eh irges to tho jury beforo
tiny argument Is made on tho case by
counsel
fi Let ovi i v qunlllled voter bo subject
to
jury survv If not over sixty years of
age Manj ixccllent mcu who are
neither Iioiim holders nor freeholders are
under tho ptoeut law dl quilllled

IIidaloo Tkx April 2 Editor Gn
zettut in response to your request in re
gard tp legislation for thu purpose of per
fecting tho road and school laws of Tex
as I would suggest ts my opinion that
tho roads bu maliitalued by taxation Or
raihcr by taxation and labor that Is to
say nil persons paying a state and county
ad val tax of 10 and over to be exempt
from
road service nil other to work on
roads for at least the days In tho year
Ibis la my opinion would be moro enui
table ami just to all parties for the reason
that fully 60 per cent of the Inhabitants
ol this county do not pay a tax not eveu
a poll tax This wa3 mado evident last
yeir The ase > sor assessed all polls
and the collator has not been able to
collect tho same except from property
owners nunowners of property icftism
or falling to pay their polls
The school law In my opinion is tho
best that Texas h ever had yet sonm
chances might bo made which would
more nearly perfect It lor Instance su
perlnundency It Is my opinion that In
al counties where tho scholastic
popu
lation exceed Hoo tt superintend
ent should be appointed or elected
Proper supervision by county judges U
almost an Impossibility for the reason
that they have not tho Umo to spare from
their other duties to give the null c
schools the attention which their Impor
