What The
_Is Doing
AUSTIN. Feb. 26. t*V-The Tex
as house Tuesday refused to sub
mit a constitutional amendment ,
aoolishlng the poU tax u a prere
quisite to voting after opposition
[ to the proposal cnarged u would
open the way lor election of negro f
, omcials ana members of the leg
islature and cripple the school
, tund.
The resolution received a scant
majority, 6? to 61, but fell far snort
of the 100 votes necessary to sub
mit. It may be brought up again.
Hot debate followed Its presen
tation by Representative W. A.
Shoiner of lempie.
Pointing to pictures of negro
memoers of the house hanging in
the gailery. Representative oea
Roane of Rosen Derg asked: “You
would feel tunny if that negro
from Dallas came down here and
sat baside you in this house,
wouldn't you?”
Several negroes served In the
Texas house following the Civil
j War and a negro liwyer Is a can
didate for the house seat vacated
by Sarah T Hughes, recently ap
pointed Dallas district judge.
‘‘We haven't had any negro
me.i oers since the poil tax," Roane
continued.’ That why I think it
is a good law. In 188a my county
had all negro officers.”
Shofner charged it was undem- 1
ocratic to levy a tax on the right '<
to vote.
“Let s try democracy fcr a while,"
he said. "II It's going to tail lets
find out about it. I believe we
should tax everything before we
tax the right of a citizen to vote."
Shoiner charged thit under the
exiting tax tne "riff-raff’’ with
money to buy a poll tax could vote
while many poor, but honest, citi
zens were disfranchised. He denied
{ repeal of the poll tax would work
an irreparaole hardship on school
fund revenues but added: "We
should not enslave parents to send
their children to school."
"Do you favor enfranchising tne
negro?' Representative Vernon be- i
mens of Rainbow, asked.
, "Under the present system a
negro is about to be elected in I
Dallas county.” Sho ner replied.
"The house Is the judge of its own
members and oould refuse to seat
a negro."
“If you repeal the poll t»x about
a half d:zen negroes will be sent

McKINNEY. ret. M- OP>—Thr
haunts of Raymond Hamilton, his
hiding places after bank raids, were
watched from ambush by groups of
officers Tuesday as the drive to
capture Texas' death-house fugitive
grew more intense.
Early raiding squads quietly vis
ited hideout* in nearby Wise coun
ty. returned empty-handed and
said they would watch closely for
appearance of Hamilton and his
new traveling companion, wlelder
of a machine gun In a brush with
ofiicers near here Monday night.
Wise county officers, directed by
Assistant County Attorney Jen
nings C. Brown and State High
way Patrolman Marvin V. Roach,
searched fruitlessly throughout the
night in wooded sections after be
ing tipped Hamilton was headed
their way.
Six known haunts of the West
Dallas killer were visited. Officers
said Hamilton had visited the
county several times within the
past three weeks.
When last seen Hamilton and his
companion, at the wheel of a
stolen coupe, were headed north
from Port Worth. There they
stole the car after releasing three
youths they had kidnaped early
Monday from a Collin county farm
house to facilitate their getaway.
The boys, Buster Mayes J. C.
Loftice and J. C. Harlow, said
Hamilton gave them %2 and told
them to “get on back home and
keep your mouths shut"
The boys said they had been well
treated and were allowed to return
home in the car Hamilton took
early Monday from William Mayes,
father of Buster. The group stop
ped at Denton and Fort Worth for
food during the day, the boys said.

Barnhart's report was In written
form and was made available to

Member* of the committee de
clined to comment In detail on their
conference with members of the
Interstate Commerce Commission.
Barnhart stated the committee was
given details of rail rate structures
and that as for as the differential
rate war, concerned, the railways
could remove this extra charge on
Valley shipments or change the
boundaries of the Texas and Okla
homa differential territories so as
to exclude the Valley from payment
of the differential.
Barnhart quoted from the fold
ings of the Tnte.state Commerce
Commission In what Is commonly
knowm as the “old Southwestern rate
case" to prove the committee's con
tention that the differential charge
can be removed at the desire of
the rail lines. He told the meeting
the committee was Informed by rail
officials that it was so Interwoven
with the present rater that its seg
regation was impossible and quoted
the rate caae findings to refute this
Given Two Weeks
He read further from the same
report to show that differential
charge? accrue in their entirety to
the railway on which the shipments
originated and that the differential
charges are not prorated among all
llines handling the shipment.
The Hidalgo commltte?man stated
the commission secretary a'iowed
the committee two weeks In which
to reach some agreement with the
railways before calling a bearing
by the commission on the matter.
He asserted that conferences with
Southern Pacific and Missouri Pa
cific officials in Houston and St.
Louis, both enroute to and on the
return trip from Washington, re
sulted in agreement of Missouri
Pacific officials for a conference
with a view to adjusting the pres

The census shows a total of 1288
farms there on January 1. 1935. **
against 814 farms shown bv the
U S. census of 1930 While the
figures are not complete for Hi
dalgo and Cameron counties. Mr.
Miles stated that “all Indications
are that Cameron county will show |
a large Increase, with approxi
mately twice as many farm and
ranch operators In 1935 as shown
In 1930.
“In Hidalgo county the present
census will probably show an In
crease of from 3000 to 3500 farms
over the 1930 flyure ”
Miles point* dout that the In
crease in farms has been so great
as to require seven additional enu
merators for the three Valley coun- !
ties, and his request for these enu- j
merators has been granted. Six of
them are working In Hidalgo coun
ty, and one In Cameron, in addi
tion to the 12 for Hidalgo and 8
for Camercn already provided.
No figures on 8tarr county were
avs liable.
The Increase In Willacy county
was so surprising. Mtles said, that
he rechecked the figures from
sources, and established definitely
that the total was accurate.
He ahowed a letter frcm County
Farm Agent R. W. Hutchins in
which Mr. Hutchins called atten-,
tlon to the remarkable increase in
prodioe of Willacy county, and
said that agricultural development
In that county has continued dur

cessation of development In some
other sections.
