Fears Defeat for Many Pro
posed Pet Measures at the
LAW NOT A VICTORY
(Horace H. Shelton.)
San Antonio. Tex., Aug. 1. The spec
ial session of the legislature has now
been in progress 10 days. Little has
been accomplished and governor
Campbell has not yet shown his hand
If he has anv intentions of trying ta
strike a death blow to the liquor traf
fic in Texas.
The nomination of Colquitt for gov
ernor is now conceded, but beyond the
demand for an investigation of the
charges that money was used to de
feat submission at the last session
of the legislature and to probe into
the recent campaign expenses of the
governor, there has been nothing sub
mitted by the governor or done by
the legislature that could be construed
as in any way an attack on Colquitt.
It is possible that the governor is
waiting until some of his pet hobbies
have been gotten out of the way be
fore he takes any action that will
precipitate a fight.
The real reason, however, seems tJ
be that the governor realizes that the
recent election was a repudiation of
his administration and that he cannot
hope to line up the legislature in favor
of his policies.
All Favorite Defeated.
Every man the govereor was known
to favor was defeated. Dashiell was
o erwhelminjgly defeated for railroad
rommissloner. McCord, the governor's
appointee for associate justice of the
court of criminal appeals, suffered a.
like fate. Colquitt, who denounced the I
go ernor and his policies from every
stump in the state, was elected by a
verv large plurality.
The facts are having their effect
on the members of the legislature. Two
5 ears ago when Williams ran against
Campbell the citizens f Texas regis
tered a violent protest against the
governor. This was repeated even !
more emphatically this year. Legis- '

pbell policies. The governor,
of good judgment, yearns to
uY. . !
There was some taTk of the gov
ernor submitting the 2 cent fare bill,
but on good authority t is learned
that it will not be done. Realizing
the bill would meet an inglorious de
feat the governor will save his face
by not bringing up the matter.
Submission Disposition Planned.
A resolution favoring a constitu
tional convention may be passed, not
because governor Campbell wants it,
hut because Colquitt and the anti-pro-hibitionists
think that is the easiest
matter of disposing of the trouble
some question of submission, which
was endorsed at the primaries.

Quite informal was the affair of Sat
