'AT DIFFERENCE Hornaday and Johnson , Led in Citrus Bill Fight AUSTIN, Feb. 37—VP—The two citrus fruit regions of Texas were divided on the bill defeated in the legislature that would have permlt ; ted the State Commissioner of * Agriculture to place a ban on ship ment of Florida citrus fruit nur sery stork Into this state. Some said the rivalry and jealousy existing between the two contemporary sec tions cropped out in the debate. The section known as the Rio Grande Valley was behind the leg islation. while the Winter Garden District was opposed to it. Rep. Polk C. Hornaday of Harlingen sponsored the bill in the House and Rep. A. P. Johnson of Carrizo Springs opposed it. It had no op position in the Senate. Hornaday argued that the Rio Orande Valley district had 8 000,00) citrus fruit trees, valued at $40,000. 000, against 280.000 trees valued at <700,000 in the Winter Garden and told his colleagues that since his region was affected to a greater extent they should vote with him. but a majority went with Johnson and turned the bill down. Johnson said that his people wanted to but I trees from Florida if they could get good stock at a reasonable price. He contended that it was a scheme on the part of Valley nurserymen to force purchase of trees from them. Hornaday claimed the Winter Garden District wanted to buy cheap trees to mislead tourists who ■were brought to that section.
