MADE A KECK!
Del Rio, Tex., July 25. This city is
likely to get itself very much talked
about because of the action of the elec
tion commissioners at the recent Demo
cratic primary in carrying out a reso
lution adopted unanimously b
Democratic executive committee.
Ever since elections have been held
in this border town a distinct and large
socalled purchasable vote lias been
brought to the noils and no doubt many
times controled the situation. The rep
resentative people of the city have
long sickened of such a method and
have attempted time after time to
bring about a more healthy condition,
but until the recent primary no de
cisive action was ever taken. The
Democratic executive committee in pre
paring for the primary adopted unani
mously a resolution against permitting
anybody to vote who "could not read
and write the English language." Sen
timent from all sides complimented the
committee and not a voice of protest
from a single representative citizen
went up against the resolution.
At the primary the election commis
sioners carried out the resolution to
the letter, but protests from those who
are most active in local politics were
..numerous; rulings were flashed on the
I commissioners declaring the action Il
legal, and pressure in other ways
brought to bear. The commissioners
were Arm and carried out their instruc
tions and for the first time in the his
tory of Del Rio, the purchasable, illit
erate, indigert Mexican vote failod to
control the situation.

The Saturday Arrests.
Asked Saturday night if it might be
anything else. The business interests
of the United States never awaited more
eagerly the message of the president of
the United States than do the legisla
tors what governor Campbell will have
The general impression seems to be
that the senatorial bee is buzzing
around in the governor's bonnet in an
active way and that he will attempt
to make his actions during th present
legislature the means of elevating him
to that position at the expense of "Unit
ed States senator Joseph TV. Bailey.
Bailey's friends are aware of 'this and
that will result in the Bailey question
being kept more or less prominentlv in
the front during the entire session. "

Among the new matters to be submit
ted this week by the governor will un
doubtedly be the matter of a new min
ing law as suggested by commissioner
of the land office Robison. This law is
favored by nearly all of the legislators !
and would be passed with very little
debate. The general concensus of opin
ion is that mining development all over
the state is being hampered by the
present laws in regard to minerals of
the state school land.
State senator Hudspeth will probably
appear as the champion of this meas
ure also. He seems to be developing Info
the right hand man of governor Camp
bell, which Is rather surprising in view
of the relations existing between them
at the regular sesion. Senator Huds
peth is credited with doing more than
any one senator to defeat submission
and In many other instances opposed
the pet measnres of Campbell. It is
possible that the governor and Huds
peth may trot along together on the
mining and and the insurance law, but
if the governor submits the two cent
fare proposition there will be a break

From now on governor Campbell will
be given a fine opportunitv to test the
loyalty of his friends. It is a well
known fact that It is "off with the old
and on with the new" with politicians
and now that a new" governor is In
sight and the power of Campbell is at
least waning it is verv doubtful if he
will be able to swav the legislature In
the future as he has In the past.
