Pursuant to the call of Chairman L.
C. Alexander, thirty eight members of
the Waco bar, met yesterday after
noon at tne coanty court room at 4:130.
Tho meeting was oailod to order by
Col. W. L. Prather.
Uol. Prathor was elected chairman
and T. 0. Smith, Etq , secretary.
M.-Surratt, Esq., exphiuud tho object
of the meeting to take action on the
mattor of having a law enacted reor
ganizing tho 10th judicial district and
making it a eoparate district. Ho
stated that he had reliablo informa
tion that Marlin would oppose tho
movemont and theroforo he thought
it necessary to appoint a committeo
composed of ten members of the
"Waoo bar to go to Austin in tho inter
est of this measure.
Capt. T. A. Blair inovod that a
committee of ten be appointed for tho
purpose of going to Austin in the in
torost of tho bill.
Maj. Chus. B. Pearne arose for in
formation and asked what effect a sep
arate dittriot, if it became a law,
would have upon Judge Goodrich. He
stated that the Judge had made a
good ono and if the law would over
throw him because ho had not resid
ed in tho now distriot -two years he
was opposed to it, for tho present.
Mr. Surratt explained that ho had
given tho matter some thought and
did not think it would offoot Judgo
The law relating to mattor was read.
Mr. Preudorgast and othors Bpoko
at BOmo longth upon tho matter.
J. W. Taylor, Esq., stated that if
Major Pcarre and others were oorroot
in thoir opinions that a soparate dis
triot would displace Judgo Goodrioh,
Iio didn't want any suoh law.
Mr. M. 0. Parks thought tho mattor
should be passed ovor for tho present.
Capt. P. A. Blair desired, with tho
consoqt of his second, to withdraw his
motion, which was done, but ronowed
by Mr. Prendergaat.
Mr. Taylor moved as a substitute
that a ooramittoo of five members of
tho Waco bar be appointed to go to
Austin and inform our representative
and senator that it would not be
praoticablo at this timo to pass a law
making a separate district for Mc
Lennan county.
Mr. A. C. Prondnrgast stated that
in view of tho fact that tho bar bad
mot formerly and drafted resolutions
favoring a separate judioial distriot, tho
substitute was out of ordor. Ho also
stated that a separate judioial district
was badly necdod aud that ho did not
boliovo in doing ati injury to the dis
tiiot in tho interest simply of ono man
who may bo in office, that there was
lots of lawyers in Waco just as oapa
bio as Judgo Goodrioh, but that he
desired it to bo understood that he
was ni,t a candidate lor that position.
Mr. 1 ylor again spoko strongly in
favor o' his substituto and gavo hiB
reasoD'J why he did so.
Judgo E. H. Graham stated that ho
did tot think noeessity for a re
parato judicial district existod, and
strongly opposod it, for tho reason
mainly that tho reapportionment of
tho distriot would give all tho rolief
sought, and ho thorefore favored Mr
Tavlor's substitute
Mr. V. W. Kendal spoko in high
tprms of Tudee Godrioh and acknowl
edged that in case ho was disquali-.
hod a bad judgo might bo solcoteu in
his plaoo but that wo all have to
tako those chances throughout life,
and ho for one was willing to take
them in overything for tho public
good, without regard to personal pref
erence for any man, He thought a
separate judicial district for McLen
nan county neoessary for tho public
good and would therefore vote against
Mr. Taylor's substituto.
After othor discussion both pro and
con. Mr. Surratt was asked to read
tho law whioh ho did and gavo his
construction of it, which oonstruotion
was not eoncurncdin by Mr. Taylor
and others.
Col. John L. Dyer reoognized tho
importance of asoparato judicial -district,
but he thought under all the cir
cumstances tho matter should bo post
poned for tho present.
W. S. Baker Esq., stated that the
objections raised wero moroly upon
personal grounds and that we should
consider measures, not men. Ho stated
further that the idea that a lawyer
could not be found in Waco equally
as good as Judge Goodrioh was abso
lutely false, and continued in a calm
and conservative but foroible speech
in favor of the separate judioial dis
triot. Judgo W. W. Evans moved to table
the substitute. Carried by a vote of
twenty-sevon to eight,
Vote was tuen taken on
the original motion whioh was car
ried. It was moved by Judgo Eugone
Williams that the thrco members of
the old committee form part of tho
committee of ten. Carried
At the suggestion of Judgo Wil
liams tho following seven members
were appointed: Mesuers E A. Jones,
A. C. Prendercast. W. W. Evans,
Jno. L. Dyer, J. B. Scarborough, Dr.
Thomas Mooro and M. Surratt.
Judge Williams moved that tho
chaitman bo authorized to appoint
othor members as ho thought neces
sity required. Carried.
Tho meeting then adjourned.

This makos his openings pcouliar and
pretty. In tho oponing today his
social instincts were given full play
with tho effect of some Bpeoial features
seldom seon in openings and as pleas
ing as novel. The storo was a blazo
of light from a logion of whito and
colored lamps and was warm as toast
and hence most grateful to one step
ping from tho dreary outer world.
