Milts The fun begins at Austin march 1-i, From count cumber 16 wo iufer that the governor surmises that there is something not in.ludcd in his call upon which legislation can be had. Tho governor calh the legislature together on sixteen different counts. Tho legislature will probably have timo to consider two of them the ap. portionment nd tho laws giving force and effect to the amendments. Tho call is in tho naturo of a campaign document. In tho immigration convention at Lufkin on tho 17ih Judge E. C. Dictinson of Rusk proposed that tho peoplo demand of tho railroad com mission that it force the narrow guago railroads in Ka9t Texas to broaden their guage. If the peoplo will cloot a broad guago man for gov ernor and broad guage men to tho legislature, tho railroads will follow suit. They ar6 doing a narrow guage business now especially in Southeast Texas where lumber was their only support. Tho Dcniscn Herald bent a repor ter out in that city Wednesday to as certain tho sentiment of tho business and professional men as to their ehoioe for governor, and out of twonty-six well known citizens without regard to their politics, as botwoon the Republi can and Democratic parties, twolvo were for Georgo Clark, three for Mo Donald of Paris, one oaoh for Ross Gibbs, Shepard and Webb Flannagan and soven woro non-committal. Out of tho twenty-six interviewed twenty axproseed opposition to Hogg and not a Bingle one oirercd a word of praise savo that ono republican gave him credit for veto .ng the Denison 10 milo charter. Governor Hogg can tako this striw in his mouth and go to caporing tor tho storm is brewing that will sweep ilm cat of office and into obicurity, RETROSPECTIVE. During tho campaign of 1890, so mcmorablo in Texas, tho ohnrgo was made that it was tho intention of Mr. Hogg nnd his friends to plaoo over tho railroads of Texas a commission with such absoluto and arbitrary powers that tho further extension of railroad interests would be disoontinuod and dovolopment of tho state materially retarded, it not absolutely chcokca to a standstill. "Hogg wants a 'plen ary' commission," waB tho ohargo of tho opponents and his frionds, The News among the number, dofonded him and tho commission orubo against tho imputation. Tim News bo liovcd that a commission law was nec essary to hold in chcok tho avorious railroad stook manipulator in his dis crimination botween persons and places and rival corporations. Tho well csblishod trunk linos would rofuso an equitable division of froight rates with new con necting lines and in that way tho rail road business of Texas was controlled by one or two systems and further railroad building depended entirely on their pleasure. Believing theso things The News advocated tho adop tion of tho commission amendment and the nomination of Mr. Hogg. Wo have no apology to mako for ad vocating tho adoption of the commis sion amendment but for whoopiDg it np .for Hogg wo beg pardon. He did tho very thing his opponents charged that ho would do and that The News contended that ho wouldn't, i c established a commission with plenary powers, forced a law upon the legislature that virtually deprives the railroads of legal redress in tho courts of tho state, and the commissioners being appointed by tho governor tho great railroad industry of Texas representing vastly moro wealth than any other and upon which tho prosperity and furthor development of the stato depends is in tho hands of one man, Governor Hogg who has rapidly shown a rabbid hostility to tho owners. As a rosult no railroads havo beon extended, neither has there been any new ones built; nor will there bo until the owners arc assured that their property will not be taken from them. Chair man Reagan has boasted that the present commission has not bank rupted any railroads yet! That is no defenso of a law whioh gives him the power to bankrupt all of them. It is not so much what the commission has done as what it can do that paralyzes the railroad investor for none of them will put their capital into n business unless they can have somo voice in its management. Governor Hogg will go before the peo plo and Chairman Reagan will write letters perhaps, in defenso of Hogg's law and Hogg's commis sioners, but he oan't fool them any more. They have seen tho dreadful effect of tho touoh of the demagoguo whoso blighting hand has withered every industry. It was Abraham Lin coln who said: "You can fool some of tho peoplo all of the time and all of the peoplo somo of the timo but you can't fool all of tho peoplo all of the timo." This has beon said and written many times but it is so perti nent in this connection we oould not refrain. If Governor Hogg were to read it once a day and reflect upon it ono hour out-of overy twenty-four ho would withdraw from tho raoo. Tho people will uot only rofuse to re-elect him but they will never for givo him for fooling them so. The peoplo of Texas cannot afford at this junoturo to refuwi to rally to tho support of Hon. Georgo Clark who has fought many battles for them and has always bocn right. There is not ono drop of tho blood of the dema goguo in him and novor was. He is a man of strong oonvietions and oandid expression, and you don't havo to as sume anything as to his viows on any public quostion. Ho always tolls where ho stands and no ono who knows him will doubt his word whon ho spoaks. No truer Democrat ever lived than he. and Ins woll known ability and integrity will, if ho is elected governor, rostoro perfeot con fidence and Texas will again spring to tho front, her railroads, tho great ar teries of trade, will take new blood and new life, her great industrial hoart will throb with fresh vigor and prosperity and happiness will reign once moro.
