An extract t m the Galveston News
of a lew Cays a;;o shows that its Dallas
correspondent i re mme strange con
clusions after sn it effectual a tempt to
interview a party of R ck Island and
Davenport people. His letters will be
read with a gool deal of interest here:
George W. Csble of Rock Island is at
the Pickwick. Mr, Cable is accom
panied by his wife. Mr. and Mis H. B.
ctudlow of Rock Island and Mrs J. S
Wylie of Davenport. Mr. Cable is a
brother to Ranssm R. Cable, president
of the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific
railway, and a cousin to Ben T. Cable,
chairman of the democratic national
executive comtni.lea for the west.
While all of bis connections are men of
business purely, and while he himself is
better off than most in the goods and
chattels of this world, Mr. Cable is, as
everybody knows, a literateur a great
novelist. One b's only to mention ' O d
Creole Days," ' Dr. bevier."and "Carou
cro" to bring GdiTge W. Cable home to
thousands of people. Beyond these
stories of Louisiana life, Mr. Cable is as
well known as a champion of higher ed
ucation of negroes and a blue-blooded
protectionist, who takes high rank in
the councils of the advocates of down
trodden industries The ostensible pur
pose of his visit is to bask awhile in the
sunshine of the st ony south. From here
they go to Dalles and then on to New
Orleans for the ctrnival period.
Toere is suspicion abroad in the land,
however, '.hat t r. Cable is combining
bueioecs with pleasure and is looking
over the country with a view of seeing
what is best for the Rock Island railroad
to do. He is nuking careful inquiries
about tbe country through which it is
supposed the Rock Island is going to ran
and is very care'cl not to let anything
drop about the road. When a News re
porter called this morning Mr. Cable in
terviewed bim for quite a while. Every
thing Mr. Cable sid of a positive nature
could be put in a mustard sted and still
have room for a big cattle ranch.
He Ihouuhl tbe arbitrary policy of the
Texas railway con. mission had hurt the
state in the matter of investments and
liberal 1. gisUtioa was needed as a cor
rective. He thinks Gov. Hogg's policy
and utterances are impairing the good
name and credit of tbe state in the com
mercial world and are calculated to keep
money out. Beyond adding tbat Fort
Worth seemed to te a great distributing
point Mr. Cable stid nothing with regard
Turning his attjLtion to politics, he
said that Illinois will hereafter be solidly
republican. The el ction of a democratic
goyemorand the carrying of the state
for Cleveland was cue to local conditions
that carried the foreign and labor voters
into the democratic party, tbe democratic
candidate for governor. Judge Altgeld,
being of German ix traction. Added to
these causes was a natural desire for a
change and this sediment was no incon
siderable factor in the result. Iowa also,
in Mr. Cable's opinion, has gone demo
cratic for tbe last ti ne. The republicans
have an immortal cinch on it for all time
to come, tbe prohibition question having
While the Texas newspaper man is cor
rect in some of his views as to Mr. Cable's
relations, and while perhaps it is quite
natural that he should consider him a res
ident of Rock Island, which is so much bet
ter known than D ivonport.yet he is "con
siderably off "in cor. founding bis name
with that of the distinguished novelist
and lecturer, and though he may have
tbe same enlightened ideas, he is not
giyen to expressiag them. The party is
at present enjoying the summer weather
that prevails at Ban Diego, Cal .
