To the News I heard an ardont admirer of Mr. Hogg asserting upon tho streets today tho great things that ho had done, and among others that he had recovered millions of acres of land lor tho state. I would like to find a few thousand aores out of these vast millions. I think I would be tempted to go out and camp on them awhile out of pure ouriosity. After leaving my friend, I reread Hock's creat Rusk Bpeeoh and es pecially the autobiographical part of it. L notice in ono placo ho savs that since his induction into tho office of attorney ge neral he has lost but two suits and that ho never applied for a continuance in any of them. I con cluded that I would go through tho luprome court reports of our state and sco how, from every case in which he figured as attorney general, they would mirror him in his litigation. The first case I find is that of the state vs. Ilhotnberg, 09 Texas, 219, which, by the bye, was reversed upon the ground that tho motion for con tinuance made by the attorney genernl had been erroneously overruled. This case merely construes the aot of 1883, known as the "'land fraud act," and tho cntiro c pinion, so far as tho merits ofthecasoare concerned, is predi cated solely upon the oaso of tho state vs Snyder, GG Texas, 087. This Snyder caso was brought by Attorney General Templetou and was lost by him in the court below, but was ap pealed and roversed and remanded and in the opinion, this "land fraud act" is thoroughly disouBsed and con strued by Mr. Justice Stayton, and the road to succces in another suit predicated unon this aot is so uner ringly blazed out that any avorago I lawyer could not possibly get lost therein. Tho next caso I find is that of Farmer vs. state, Go. Texas, 5G1, wherein it is decided that life insurance companies cannot bo incorporated as benevolent associations a decidedly evident proposition. In this case we find as sociated with Mr. Hogg, K. L. Oar lock, Eeq , and D. P. Ayres, Esq. The next ease I find is that ot state vs. Degress, 72 Tex , 242, which was a proceeding of quo warranto insti tuted by Mr. Hogg against Degroes to oust him from the ollloe of alder man in the city of Austin. Mr Hogg loBt this oaso in tho court below and appealed to tho supremo court, where the caso was roversed and dismissed upon the ground that tho petition did not show that tho oflico in question was ot any value, and that the peti tion in such cases must show that the perquibites of tho office is within tho jurisdiction of tho distriot court, and such has been tho sottlcd law of this state ever sinco the docision in state vs. Owens, G3 Tex., 261. Tho next caso I find ib that ot tho state vs. Taylor & Kolly, which was a caso where Taylor & Kelly, as lessees of tho waterworks ot tlio city ot Georgetown, brought suit to enjoin tho assessment of taxes on said water works as against them, whioh injunc tion was perpetuated in tho court below, from whioh dooision Mr. Hogg appealed and tho ease was affirmed The next case I find is the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fo railway com pany vs. tho state (72 Tex., -104,) which is commonly known as tho traffio case, tho history of whioh is familiar. In this case Mr. Hogg succeeded and broke up tho traffic association and on tho noxt day froight local latcs advauced. Tho next caso I find is that of the state vs. Opporman (74 Tox., 136), which was a suit by Mr. Hogg to oan cel the sale of 640 aores of land in Hardeman county. Ho lost tho oaso in tho court bolow and appealed it to tho supreme court, whoro it was ro versed. The noxt case I find is that of Cun ningham vb. tho stato (74 Tex., 511), which was a suit brought by Mr. Hogg to cancel the salo of ono section of sobool land in Donloy oounty, whioh suit he gained. . From the two latter cases it is pos sible that tho state recovered 1,280 acres of the probablo value ol J3 per acre, whether this recovery would pay tho cost in tho oaso of tho Interna tional and Great Northern Railway company vb tho Stato is extremely doubtful. This latter case was a suit by Mr. Hogg to forfeit the chartor of the International and Great Northern Railway oouipany and tako from it its exemption from taxation. In tho oourt below thero was a decree en tered removing tho exemption from taxation, but lofusing to forfeit tho ohaitor, and on appeal from that de cision by the railroad company tho oaso was reversed and dismissed. Chief Justico Stayon, delivering the opinion of tho oourt, said: "The suit should havo been dUmiesed in tho court bolow upon goneral demurrer." (75 Tex. 350 ) Tho next case I find is that of tho East Lino and Red River railrcad company vs. tho state, 75 Texas, 431, which was a suit by Mr Hojrg to for feit tho charter of that railway for various reasons assigned. Ho suc ceeded in forfoiting tho ohartcr of the company and upon return of the man date to tho court below he proceeded to have a receiver appointed and then, with associato counsel specially em ployed, tried to got possession of the property of that railway for his ap pointed receiver and instituted pro ceedings in the federal court against the federal receivers, whioh suit was lost and the reooivers of the Missouri, KanBaB and Texas are still controlling tho East Line as smoothly as if no suit had ever been brought, and where the stato of Texas has over received any benefit from the suit remains to be explained by somo one who under stands tho subject better than 1. New where all these millions of acres of land come in that he has gained for tho people of Texas I am unable to find, and, il I could bo induced to be lieve that there was 1000 acres in any one body that ho had gained, as be fore said, I would go out and camp on it awhilo, as being something of sacred territory. I have thought it profitable to brief ly review the work of Hogg's prcdo oessor, tho Hon. John D. Temploton, in cases which formed precedents fjr Mr. Hogg in his above mentioned land oases. I find that the State of Texas vs. Thompson (01 Tex., 090) was a case of first impression, with reference to tho aforementioned land fraud aot, and in whioh suit Mr. Templcton tried to set aside Johnson's claim to two sections of stato school land and was deteated, but upon apposl the caso was reversed and remanded upon the merits. I find in tho caso of tho State of Texas vs. Work, carried up by Mr Tompleton, a disoussion of tho lease laws, etc, in which suit ho was de feated in the court below, but which on appeal was also reversed and re manded. In tho Stito of Texas vs the Stono Cattle and Pasturo company, 6G Texas 3G3, I find also a discussion of the land questions involved in tho suits of Mr Hogg, wherein he gained two sections, or 12R0 acres of land It does not appear from tho opinion how uiuoh land was involved, but says tho number of traots. This suit was lost by Mr. Templeton in tho oourt below, but on appeal was reversed and remanded upon its tnorits The noxt case of tho stato of Texas va. Syndor was a suit by Mr. Templo ton to recover twenty-four sections of land under tho above named "land fraud act," and points out the proper remedy for tho stato to pumio in tho recovery and was rendored on April 6, 1880. Thoso cases of Mr. Tom pleton's formed dcoidod and positivo precedents for Mr. Hogg in the cases wherein ho gained tho 12fa0 acres. I also note that Mr. Hogg figured in the supreme oourt of tho United States in tho oaso of Ashor vj. stato (128 U. S. sup. ot. rep 12o ) whoroin Asher sued out habeas corpus to in quire into the constitutionality of tho drummers' tax. In this oubo Mr. Asher prcvailod and went forth a frco man. The Val Verdo case is generally known, and whilo a dissenting opinion may afford the attornoy general relief in the way of boing "lot down easy," yet tho fact remains that tho land which was tho subject of tho contro versy cannot be embraced in the mil lions of acres mentioned by my Hogg friend. Thoso are all tho cases ro ported in tho suprome court in whioh Mr. Hogg as attorney general haB figurod, and I havo truly statod them and my statement will bo verified by reference to the book and pHgo ol tho report of each. It is truo that Mr. Hogg has judgment in favor of the Btato in tho district oourt of aomo southwestern county for somo land, hut anneal is nendicE nd from his own statement of tho legal question involved this case will most likely follow thooxamplo of its predecessors and bo reversed. It is also truo that in tho district xv, wv.-7 wrnni'ii a (-niMnn a nn.. h? 5 ...,.. srAfKrffW A M Wtm ifrsTffa roiriiin with a tastkmss am MIMIIIU: (OATIMI.
