Mr Eal addressed the convention
tliat mug the body for the honor coiferred

Ais address being received with heartv
He slated that Texas was a
piatsuie so great that if its inhabitants
u re spread over the state equal distances
om each other that they could not hear
ti e voice of each other without a trumpet
H made a s irring appeal to the patriotism
Of the people of Texas to rally to the
gle and collect an exhibit of which they
would feel proud He said
It secm3 as if there was a constitutional
inhibition that prohibited our lczilaturc
from appropriating a respectable fund for
the purpose of exhibiting the products of
Tas at the Worlds fair but there is no
byspTohibition on the people of Texas and they
are exacted to do their uuty to themselves
and their children There is no need for me
to tell you that this exhibit will redound to
the infinite advantace of our state Thirty
years ago the population of the United
States amounted to onlv 30000 OuO of people
To day we have overco000000 of heppy
prosperous people In Texas alone these
UO000000 of people could live and be pros
perous and in order that our property val
ues should enhance in value and that our
state may be dotted with farms and com
fortable homes we must take steps to
brine these people to our state In order to
do this we must take advantage of every
opportunity to advertise our soil and re
sources and an exhibit at the Worlds
fair placing before the best people
of the world our products the character
of soil and hospitality of our people will
bo worth millions of dollars to our
Mr Exall spoke to some length during
which ho ref rred to Texas as the peer
of any state in the Union and appealed
to the delegates to take steps to disabuse
the sentiment in the East aroused by tho
malign influence that misrepresented our
stato and placed her in uncivilized light
before tho Eastern public
At the close of Mr Exalls speech the
committee on resolution asked time on a
rejwrt and a motion was made to adjourn
until Wednesday at 10 a m
Pending the motion to adjourn Mr Hur
ley announced that the Santa Fo railroad
would furnish free transportation to the
delegates to tho stockyards where a barbe

Quite a number of the representative
women of this town and ladj delegates
from other cities assembled at the opera
house yesterday morning to hear Mrs Ky
an address In her capacity as state com
missioner she visited Chicago and is well
informed as to tho work that will bo nec
essary for the women of this state to do in
order so secure a proper exhibit for Texas
Mrs Turner of Fort Worth also a state
commissioner introduced Mrs Hyan to the
Imbcs to whom she spoke brielly but effect
ively It was apparent to al that the
sjieaker was moved by earnest loyaty and
tiie marked attention of those present
proved that she awakened she responsive
hord in the hearts ot her listeners It is
only possible to give in this issue a short
sy uopsis of her remarks but it is the pur
Kse on Sunday to publish in the Ladies
Department of Tiiu Gazette the entire
Mrs Hyan began by saying that devotion
to her state and a lixed desire to have it
creditably represented induced her to say a
word to the ladies She then spoke of her
visit to the convention at Chicago humor
ously pictured the oieiiing scenes in which
pn veilent and rule played as small a part as
they have done in congress She spoke of
the president elected at that meeting Mrs
Hotter Palmer as being a woman pre-eminently
qualified to discharge the duties of
so responsible a position and of the eng
thusiasm manifested by delegates from
places remote and in many respects un
promising The speaker then outlined the
plans approved for advancing the work by
the women in this and in foreign countries
and submitted to the ladies a recommenda
tion tu organize in every town one or more
societies tor the study of American history
as a preparation for intelligently appreciat
ing the exposition and the members by a
weekly contribution of a small sum
would have money to use as thuy
deemed most advisable She then urged
the consecration of money to this lorious
object aud in passing paid a handsome
compliment to the people of Fort Worth
She urged that the women in every county
of tho state secure by jiersonal effort ex
hibits of the natural and manufactured
products of their several sections and that
they specially secure specimens of the
handicraft of women Mrs Ian closed
her address by an eloquent appeal to tho
ladies in behalf of Texas that her Lone
Star might shine in the galaxv at Chicago
in iJi with a brilliancy commensurate
with her grandeur and her wealth

When tho Worlds fair convention was
first called one of the first things to attract
the attention of tho entertainment commit
tee was some method by which the visitors
to the city could be entertained and in
what would ba the most acceptable
manlier Various methods were discussed
and it was finally decided that a good old
fashioned barbecue was just the thing and
accordingly it will be given this afternoon
When this was decided upon the nest ques
tion was as to the method of rapid transit
and means of transportation Owing to the
North Sido bridge being out the electric
cars were out of the question as a method
of transit and carriages were not available
in sufficient numbers In this emergency
J J Mullane commercial agent of the
Santa Fe took the matter up with his com
pany and though the Galveston fire ren
dered it almost impossible for the coaches
to be spared that road at considerable
inconvenience to itself wired that
an engine and coaches wnnid be
placed at the disposal of the entertainment
committee for tho purpose of conveying the
visitors to and from the packing house to
day Accordingly at 1 oclock the tram will
start from the brewery and afford transpor
tation for all who desire to attend and eat
Texas meatsbarbecued on Texas soil An
eSicient corps of waiters will be in attend
ance upon thegrounds and will afford ample
attendance upon all There is no doubt as
to tho abundance of good things to cat and
the hospitality for which Texans are famed
will bo fully exemplified to day Arrange
ments have been made to feed 1MO0 people
so that none need go away dissatisfied or
hungry Much of the success of the barbe
cue will of course depend upon the condi
tion of the and whether it is pleas
ant or rainy If the day is pleasant photo
graphic views of the train and the crowd
will be taken before the start from the
brewerv is made
One of the Kvcnts ot the Pe isoii at the
Commercial Club Parlors
At 9 oclock last evening the handsome
parlors of the Commercial club pa
Sixth and Main streets were ablaze with
light and thronged with gallant men and
ladies fair The occasion was a reception
given by tiie ladies of Fort worth to the
delegates and gentlemen from Chicago
It was a scene of bcauy Fragrant flow
ers covered the tables in the billiard room
which resembled huge beds of roses while
the loveliest blossoms from Fort Worths
flower gardens hung in rich festoons inter
mingled with gay bunting Professor
Aults orchestra discoursed the latest and
most popular musical selections while the
moving throng with the dark dress suits of
the gentlemen and the radiant costumes of
the ladies conspired to form a kaleidoscopic
picture of mirth youth and beauty that
can hardly be excelled in the Southland
Group after group of guests could be seen
chatting for a moment together then gradu
ally dissolving to form anew in other por
tions of the room Around above and over
all breathed that spirit of hospitality for
which the South has become so famous
Each and every guest was made to feel that
he had a hearty welcome and that Fort
Worths citizens were glad to see him there
Attentive ushers paid every possible atten
tion to the guests and every method was
employed to render the occasion an unusu
ally brilliant success
A description of this reception would be
incomplete w ithout mention of the musical
feature of the eveuing the numbers ren

The merry making continued until the
noon of night and when the nearness of
the wee sma hours ayant the twal
warned the revelers it was time for them
to disperse they did so reluctantly The
greatest charm about the affair was its de

The programme for to day is not a very

was probably none too much so iii the

Another j ear has passed and another
milestone has been reached our live have
been precious to the Father of all mercies
our natural profe sional and legal rights
have been maintained The sorrows and
joys the failures tntl triumphs that came
to us during the year have been such as are
common to physicians and humanity Of
the lessons of the past year the cue that
concerns us most as a school tae sys
tematic and determined effort made by the
allopaths to down us and dominate to them
selves the entire practice in this com
munity and notably so in Teias The av
erage allopathic physician has lost none
of his biogtry or hU zeal for this code of
ethics nor his willingness to spend time
and money if ho may only bring reproach
upon the homeopathic cause Hence has
been demonstrated more clearly than ever
the absolute necessity of a hand in hand
and shoulder to shoulder stand and
a pull altogether for professional
and legal rights As your retiring presi
dent I congratulate you that not only has
all vantage ground been held but that in
roads deep and wide hat c been made upon
tho decimating ranks of antiquated medi
cine aud victory decidedand subs tantialsuc
ccss has perched upon our banners in nearly
evtry state in the Cinoii thanks to the
most powerful of all human agencies the
public press that they have sjioken so
fairly and fully for our rights Thanks
to the legislators and senators
who havo fought our battles imd
won our victories
Dr Bragg who is the chairman of tho
legislative committee of the association
then detailed the history of the allopathic
funeral in Texas and what lie designated
as class legislation with the allopaths as
the class to bo benefited Senator Popes
medicine bil which was to regulato the
practice of medicine and surgery by tho
creation of a stale board of seven hippo
cratics and one each of the homeopathic
aud eclectic schools was the measure that
brought forth the cohorts uf each school in
battling for their side of the question Tho
homeopaths and eclectics claimed that the
hippocratits would forever dominate
the practice of the stato with
such u brutal majority on the
board while the allopaths claimed
that on account of the large proportion of
the medical profession being allopathic
they should have a larger representation on
the board They fought and lobbied in the
committee rooms ante rooms and before
the open house and common sense and
ridicule killed the bill Senator Tyler
wanted to amend so as to include on the
the board three botanical yarb tea or root
doctors This amendment although
titillating was decided not in order Sen
ator Carter of Tarrant stated that ho was
educated in the peach tree oil cure rub it
in either way it always cured
With the grand achievements of the
past and the financial and moral support
i hat has gathered and continues to gather
in our favor it behooves as to lift high and
move in triumph our banner of similia
similibus curantur How may this be
done 1 answer by a persistent and daily
exemplification of our ability to relieve the
suffering and cure the sick according to
this great law To the allopathie who bo
lieves and delights only in material things
and who iefues to give himself to tho finer
shades of thought and investigation our
law of selection and potentization of drugs
is as foolishuess and a stumbling block
While to the homeopath the verity of our
law of selection and the power of potentized
drugs is not based unon theory or belief
but a knowledge obtained by actual demon
stration the law of similia is an unerring
guide aud the physician who selects and
administers his remedies according to this
law may be as sure of obtaining
tiie desired result as the mariner
with chart and compass is certain of reach
ing port A familiarity with our materia
medica and a knowledge of the range and
power of potentized drugs places within the
hands of the homeopath weapons with
which to oomuat disease that is a superior
to all other known methods as knowledge
to theory or the possession of true religion
to hollow pretense
The presidedt went on to sav that as
alleged by their opponents homeopathy ia
not synonynomous with small doses sinco
homeopathy does not prescribe tho dose
The question of potency high and low
should b3 left to individual investigation
observation and preference
My own experience justifies the belief
said he that remedies selected according
to characteristic indication under the law
of similia will cure any curable disease in
dependent of the attenuation Tho crude
or attenuated form sufficiently low to call
forth physiological resistance the doctor
thought was disturbing and destructive to
vital life force and is only curative by its
secondary action and that potencies even
beyond the ken of anything but chemical
tests do yet bring healing to the ills of

Jones Pollock and Fowler were appointed

in advocating this city as the permanent
place of holding their conventions no other
