were damp from the water -which had
seeped through the cracks of the door.

TO PARTY STANDARDS
San Antonio, Tex., Aug. 20 While the
Republican insurgents are making vast
inroads into the strength of the regu
lar Republicans all over the western
and southwestern states there is no
indication that the Texas leaders have
any tendency in that direction. The
state platform, the candidate for gov
ernor and such congressmen as will be
nominated will be classed with what is
known as the "stand patters."
There is little chance for the Re
publicans to elect any congressmen this
fall, with the possible exception of one
in the Fifteenth district, where Noah
Allen of Brownsville will oppose John
N. Garner, yet the attitude of Texas is
important in the influence it will have
on the next national convention. In
the rqjfctter of delegates to that body
Texas is fifth In importance and as a
result plays an important part in select
ing a presidential nominee for the
party1 and in making the platform.
Convention Endorses Taft.
The Dallas convention erdorsed the
Taft administration and indirectly, at
least, the Dingley tariff law, for J. O. meuts were pending against the Mc
Terrell. the Republican nominee for j Murray law firm in connection with the
governor, devoted a portion of his ad
dress to this act. As this address had
been carefully reviewed by the party
leaders it 6utlines the stand of the Re-
publicans in Texas even more em
phatically than does the platform. x
In judge Terrell's declaration in re
gard to the matter there is nothing to
indicate that he has any insurgency
leanings but is content with the present
policy of the administration. Iri refer
ring Xo the tariff he said:
Revenue for General Expenses.
"For the purpose of securing imme
diate tariff legislation the president
called a special session of congress on
the 15th day of March, 1907, and the
"task of revising tariff laws so as to
make the revenue at least equal the
national expenditures was at once be
gun by Nelson Dingley in the house
and Nelson TV. Aldrich in the senate. It
has always been the policy of the Re
publican party to raise revenue enough
for the general expenditures of "fife
government without resorting to the
.esuance of bonds at a high rate of in
terest in time of peace. In other words,
the Republican party has never be
lieved, and I hope will never believe in
the issuance of national bonds to meet
current expenses. The Dingley bill
passed promptly. All the Republicans
voted for it and they were assisted by
five southern Democrats. The law was,
of course, denounced in the terms Dem-
ocrats always apply to tariff measures
as 'the most iniquitious ever passed'
and 'the most outrageous ever forced
on the people.'
"Not one word of the Democratic
prophecies which had been poured into
our ears came true. In the place of j
despair and desolation stalking through j
the country, plenty and prosperity re- j
turned at once. To the dismay of the
Democrats, the price of coal, the price, i
of beef, the price of wheat and the price
of corn began to go up and they have
been up ever since. If the agricultural
and stock raising interests of this
country are not satisfied -with the
prices which they are now receiving for
their products, they must, indeed, be
hard to satisfy.
"If they are dissatisfied with the
chances the government is today giv
ing them for making money they will
probably always be dissatisfied."'
Bailey Attacks Issue.
In support of his contention that the
Republicans are right on the tariff and
that it is responsible for the present
era of prosperity, judge Terrell cites
the attitude of United States senator
Joseph W. Bailey, who he believes Is
conserving the interests of the south
in the matter. - Judge Terrell says:
"Senator Bailey felt called upon to
warn the Democrats last year in sub
uance to the effect that the demands
which they are making now could no
be complied with by them if they should
come into power and that if they
should be again entrusted with the
control of the national government.
they would feel very much embarrassed

McMurray Says Former Sen

Kansas, and former senator John M.

socalled McMurraj- contracts was des

In endeavoring to secure approvals

and attorney general advising you on
legal matters, do you?" asked repre
sentative E. W. Saunders.
McMurray declared the visits were
made in relation to legal phases, and
denied ihe former senators had been
employed to lobby.

It was brought out in the testimony
of McMurray Friday that' he held as
many as half a dozen contracts with

Costs State $65,000 to Have
Discussion of Prohibition
CAMPBELL HAS BUT
(Hy Horace H. Shelton.)
Austin, Tex., Aug. 20. The special
session of the Texas legislature, which
cost the citizens of Texas $65,000, is at
an end. Nothing has been accomplished
beyond the repeal of the insurance law,
which now leaves the state at the
mercy of the insurance companies
without any recourse.
Whether or not the session was
worth more than $2000 a day to the
citizens of Texas is for them to deter
mine. Every thing accomplished could
have been done the first three days.
The principal result of the session
was to demonstrate just how firm a
strangle hold the liquor, brewery and
retail saloon interests have on the
That body literally kicked out of its
back door every bill looking to the fur
ther regulation of the saloons of this
state. It is true that this was accom
plished by one vote, but that was suffi
cient. But for the fact that Julius Real, the
only Republican senator, voted first,
last and all the time with the Demo
cratic antis, the Democrats .would have
been tied and lieutenant governor
Davidson would have had to cast Ihe
deciding vote. There is no indication
that Mr. Davidson is sorry that senator
Real could cast the vote for him.
3Iany Radical Bills.
Some very radical measures effecting
the saloons were offered, including the
quart law, the ten mile law, the day-
j light saloon law, the an1-di:nkihg
j saloon law and the measure p-ahibizing
j the contribution by -saloons to -the-
All of the bills got by the house,
which is supposed to be close to the
people, by about- 30 majority on every
vote. These bills hardly received
courteous treatment in -he senate. With
th nrto. mnlnritv f iirrjS5l-inr? v i. To
publican senator the steam roller was
kept in operation and the antis flat-
, tened out.
The senate at the regular session
next winter will be different. The pros
will be in a position to operate the
steam roller. It is probab'e that O. B.
Colquitt, who will be the 0 terror, will
have to keep his veto mig-tv busy and
even then. there is i possibility that
some of the less radi-al measures may
be passed over his neaJ.
The session was a complete repudia
tion of governor Campbell. Not only did.
the legislature refuse to pass any of his
pet measures but he did not have
power enough to force through the oody
an insurance measure to his liking. It
is true that the house was with him by
a good majoritj-, but the senate was
inclined to treat the governor .with
contempt. That one majority again
enabled It to do this.
The maiorirv amMflmpnt t ti,o
Terrell election law was slaughtered as i
v.-as an amendment requiring voters to '

an attempt to further disfranchise the
negroes and the Mexicans.
The session goes down into history I
us me most prontiess tne state ever
knew. The good it has accomplished is
to give the citizensan insight into the
motives of the senate. If they desire
any different conduct of the state's af
fairs, it will be up to them to get new
blood in that body.

Mr. Hammond said in part:
"The people have come to regard
