he lived alone in the Dublan fields,
but when Mr. Wafker, his nearest
neighbor, was killed, it was deemed

rying about his safety. He left here
Wednesday morning on the Mexican
Central train to return to his home in

ficials deny that the train has been

CULIACAN MENACED;
STATE WITHOUT FUNDS
Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mex., Jan. 16.
Government officials seem to be some
what panicky because of the reports of
rebel operations in the districts of Co
sala and Padiraguato. No reliable
data can be secured as to the numbers
in these rebel forces, but they are sup
posed to be some of the small bands
that have been ignored during the
summer and fall and recently are
showing signs of life. Their presence
within two days march of Culiacan.
the capital of the state, is disquieting.
Guadalupe y Calvo, the biggest town
In southwestern Chihuahua, and center
of a great mining zone, is reported to
be in the hands of a band of rebels
that numbers 200 or more.
The financial difficulties of the gov
ernment add much to the general dis
content, the policemen and other minor
employes often having to go without
their pay, and as all this class lives
from hand to mouth and has no reserve
capital the delay of one day in receiv
ing their pav puts them out greatly.
Governor Riveras is in Mexico City
negotiating loans from the federal gov
ernment with the view of putting the
siaies iinances in better condition.
The federal government owes Sinaloa
almost enough to run the state for
a year, funds that the state advanced
to pay troops in the different revolu
tions when for lack of communications
or other reasons, money could not be
secured from Mexico City to pay tho
soldiers.

Constitutional Convention.
It Is practically certain that there
will be Introduced during the present
session of the legislature a joint reso
lution providing for' the calling of a
constitutional convention to frame a
new constitution. It is claimed by
some of the members that the present
organic law is out of date and was
adopted years ago 1876 since which
time there jhas been a radical change
In the conditions of the state. Sen.
H E. Brelsford, of Eastland, some time
ago suggested that there should be a
new constitution adopted, long hefore
he was elected a member of the senate.
The pockets of the members of both
branches of the legislature are bulging
with bills and when the presiding offi
cers of both branches announce ready
for business there will be a large num
ber of measures presented on the pro
posed reform of the code of civil and
criminal procedure, proposed ameid
ments to state Insurance board law and
other important subjects.
Wants Experimental Station.
R. C Wharton, of Brownsville, sec
retary of the Rio Grande Cane Grow
ers' association, has arrived and he
will seek to nave Introduced a bill pro
viding for the taking over by the
state of the federal Brownsville ex
periment station. This bill will carry
an appropriation of about $25,000 for
tne support and maintenance of the
station for the present. The state ex
periment station board is backing this
measure and recommends its passage.
Mr. Wharton announced that his asso
ciation proposes to assist in the main
tenance of the station should this be
acquired by the state. The plan is to
levy an assessment of 23 cents per ton
on sugar grown by members of the
association, and 5 cents per ton on
cane. This would yield. Mr. Wharton
said, a comfortable amount to supplc
nunt that made by the state. There is
now already available an appropriation
cf $5000 annually by the federal gov
ernment. The government Is willing
to turn over 'the station to the state
of Texas if it will develop and main
tain it. Mr. Wharton, at the proper
time, will lay his plans before the
committee before whom the bill will
be referred for consideration.

and labor to accept arbitration in any
of their differences.
A strong law on the subject of wife
and child abandonment should be
passed, says the governor; and some
amendments should be made to the
game laws.
In rebuilding a number of state in
stitutions that have been burned, the
governor urges that only fireproof
structures be erected.
He urges the legislature to take ac
tion at once in passing bills to comply
with platform demands Telative to
liquor regulation, and says he is in fa
vor of the rigid enforcement of the
liquor law.
Early Closing for Saloons.
The gbvernor recommends that the
legislature adopt a law compelling sa
loons to close at 9:30, p. m. and remain
closed until six the next morning. After
closing at 9:30 Saturday night, he would
have them remain closed until six
oclock Monday morning.
He suggests the prohibition of sa
loons in residence sections of cities.
Relative to "social clubs." formed for
the express purpose of violating the
liquor laws, he thinks there should be
rigid prosecution. He wants the laws
amended so that social clubs selling
liquor shall be regulated and pay
licenses similar to saloons; also he sug
gests that the law be amended sn as tn
prohibit gambling In any private club.

The governor says more room is
needed for the state's insane; that there
are 367 in jails and on county farms,
unable to get admission into asylums.
He suggests a $100,000 addition to th
Austin asylum, a $125,000 addition at
San Antonio, and a $35,000 oddition to
the epileptic colony building.
Would Improve Reform School.
Recommendation Is made that a com
mission be appointed to make a revis
ion of the regulations of the state re
form school. He says the institution
is not up to standard and that the mix

degrees of crime, is bad.

wrong and should be abolished. "Every
officer in the state, from constable to
governor, should be on a fixed salary,"
he says.
The public should be. protected from
wildcat insurance companies and fake
corporations without capital, hence the
governor thinks the legislature should
do something.
As to the election laws, the govern
or says the platform demands should
be carried out.
Taxation System Needs Revision.
The taxation system of the state is
cumbersome and needs revision, the
governor says: he also thinks the fis
cal year should end with the calendar
year. Since September 1. 1911. the gov
ernor says he has had to approve de
ficiency warrants amounting to $334,
603.99, which was almost all necessary
by emergencies arising In the various
state institutions as a result of fire

"Texas is full of mineral wealth. Our
mining laws are such as not to invite

lberalizing of our mining laws so they
wll induce miners to develop our min
eral resources. Texas should he fjand
just as rich, in some sections, wit a
precious ores as New jdexiso and Ari
zona, for much of our territo-y alrr;
the Rio Grande from the Devil's river
to El Paso Is very similar to rat 'a
the two states lust named, where jr"Oat
mines of wealth have been oiscOvtred
and worked."
