Sarcasm for a Texas Official Who Tlefuied
to File a Charter.
AunTiN. Tex., July 21. A petition was pre

compel Secretary of Stato D. H. Hardy to file
for record tho charter of the Ardmore Mill and
Elovntor Company, which proposes to main
tain prlnclpnl ofllces nt Paris. Tox., and con
duct an olovntor buslnoss at Ardmore, I. T.
After citing tlio refusal of the Secretary ot
Stntn to (lie tho charter the petition says:
" It Is not woll for n small olTlier, who has no
reasonable prospect of being selected dictator,
to consume too much time over grave ques
tions of public policy. It unnecessarily de
stroys his happiness and pence of mind. Evry
onward movement since man ran wild in the
woods, and lived nn haws, persimmons and
huckleberries, has been opposed by some peo
plo's views ot publlo policy. Indiscreet medi
tation over questions ot policy leads to strange
contradictions. Tho Secrotnry of Stat, with
the old of the Attoiney.Gonernl's asslstanoe,
has reached the conclusion that It In the policy
of tho State to chnrtorratlroad, land, telegraph
and navigation companies to do business In
the Indian Territory or elsewhere, but that It
is contrary to the policy of tho Stato to charter
mills and like enterprises."
The Supreme Court took the matter of re
