"Tho consolidation of the four coal

"It gives to a single organized
group of men practically absolute con

' It empowers theao men to deter

The Texas Exhibit in cars have tho
good will of all the railroads, and it
is extended evory oourtcsy by them.
This is not strange, for all tho roads

that he would return with borne in
torested friends after suppor

Watts' boarding house about 7 o'clock
and knocked at tho door and asked for

and told him he would bo out in a few
minutes. He (Powell) then wont out
to tho oorner of Clay streot and Watts
