CURRY FAVORS DELEGATE
FROM WASHINGTON. D. C.
Washington, D. C, Jan. 24. "If the
people of the District of Columbia want
a delegate in congress, I will aid them
In getting one," declares congressman
George Curry, of New Mexico, who in
troduced the measure in tho house,
since opposed by the district commis
sioners, providing for district represen
tations on tho floor of congress.
"The idea of having a delegate ap
pointed by the president to represent
tho people of the district to me seems
foolish. Such a man would not repre
sent the people at all, and they could
not defeat him if he did not do what
they wanted. If there is going to be a
delegate, he should certainly be elected
by the people themselves and be re
sponsible to them."

LIQUOR FIGHT IN
TEXAS LEGISLATURE
(Continued from page 1.)
provements reported favorably the
Katy consolidation bill.
Prohibition Question.
' Efforts to keep the prohibition ques
tion out of the proposed call for a
constitutional convention failed, and it
looks as if there may be another state
wide prohibition election if the reso
lution can be finally passed.
Constructive Legislation.
Much 'in the way of constructive leg
islation will be accomplished at the
present session in the event the mem
bers, accept the offer of the governor as
announced in his inaugural speech. The
governor appealed for cooperation and
declared he would meet the lawmakers
half way in any measure for the wel
fare and benefit of the people and the
state. It is already apparent that this
legislature Is radically different from
that of two years ago, and It may be
observed that the chief executive has
also displayed a disposition to do all he
can to get some needed and wholesome
laws enacted during the present session.
Members of both houses are very
much pleased 'with the governor's atti
tude toward the educational institutions
of the state and in the event sufficient
appropriations are not made for these
institutions, the governor made it plain
that the fault would be with the legis
lative, and not with the executive
branch of the government Th"e same
may be said of the penitentiary system
of the state. The governor wants hu
mane laws for the government of the
convicts and favors total abolishment
of the bat and it is understood he also
favors the bill by representative Hill,
of' Walker county, for the issuance of
$3,000,000 of bonds by the state to
place the penal system under a per
manent financial basis.
Many BIIIh Introduced.
Exaotly 250 bills have thus far been
Introduced In both branches of the leg
islature. Of that number 156 were in
troduced In the house and 94 in the sen
ate. Thus, even if no more bills are in
troduced, the lawmakers would have
sufficient work to keep them busy for
the next 30 days. There has been a
marked absence of freak bills in the
number introduced, which shows that
the present legislature means business.
These bills cover a wide range of sub
jects. Interest On Judgments.
Senate judiciary committee No. 1 has
reported favorably a senate bill provid
ing that all judgments shall bear 10
percent interest from the date of such
judgments. This bill is by senator
Townsend. At present the usual rate is
either 6 'or 8 percent There was a nU
norlty adverse report however, on this
measure, which indicates a fight may
be made on its passage.
