AMEGHANIC'S VIEW Hogg's Record a Blank When It Comos to Oillclal Duty. A BATCH OF FALSE CLAIMS. The IIIUn lie Failed to Approve a ml Ills I, ante Ilxctmr for It The ITIokt Complete Uniihtlui; llio (iovcrnnr Han Vet ICcrl veil anil u h Done by a Working man An Intelligent Appenl to follow Workmen. Houston Poit. Governor Hogg has come and gone. And being a railroad man and some what interested 1 attended to hear Iub speech at Market hall, As a stump speaker I should say he is hud to beat. He understands how to sizo up hid hearers and work on their feelings and prejudices, and is good at repartee, He is strong in maki' g assertions, but sadly wanting in facts. His speech was a tirade against railroad and other corporations, a subject which he regards as over popular with tho masses of every oc cupation, who livo year in and year out from hand to mouth. And yet these smiio pcoplo, at tho dictation of Hogg, Teerrell and the like, arc evor ready to denounce and voto against these very corporations, whether it bo railroad, street car, waterworks or others, upon which they depend for occupation to supply their daily bread After carefully thinking over Mr. Hogg's speech, 1 am of the opinion it will be to the interest of the state and all its people to retire Mr Hogg to private life. Governor Hogg claimed that ho was elected to the executive chair on tho strongth of his record made as attor ney general. I think that ho is not correct Many of his more important suits wero still pending when he went on tho slump for governor, and I bo Hsvq that it Was tho commission wavo that landed him on the hill in Austin, I have Mr. Hogg's record of ovcry suit ho carried to the supremo court of tho stto boforo mo and it is very in teresting. Out of seven suits he car ried before tint tribunal ho lost four of thorn; in fact ho got so siok on account of the way the supremo court sat down upon his oiiscb that be wrote to Ham Gosaett of Kaufman, 6tting that the supreme court did not know what they wero talking about. In faot, it seemed to bo his misfortuno to pick out cases to prosecute that nearly always turned out to be misfits. Now, my fellow workman, I want to ask you it you wero to make misfits or spoiled your jobs in the proportion of four out of seven, would your foreman sus tain your record? Yes, ho would with a time check, and out you would go. And I venture the statement that there is not in the city of Houston a man who would hire Hogg us attor ney in the most potty cneo if he knew previously that his record v, as to loso four out of seven. And I do not be lievo one-hundredth part of tho poo pie of this state know anything a"bout his rec rd as attorney general. Now, let us examine his record as governor. You all know he went up into tho exeoutive chair like a meteor, and from all accounts ho is dropping liko a burstcd gas bubble. Ho claims to be the father of the commission, when tho truth is ho was opposed to it until ho SAW THK WAVE COMING Ho never opened his mouth in its favor until ho got on the stump at Rusk. And now ho claims to bo the creator of it, when in faot ho is only tho creature of it, an aooident of a p-reat unheaval. Ho olaims the orcdit of having passed tho fellow servants bill, when in fact ho did not rcoommend it, and ho stated in his market house Bpceoli that ho did not sign it, but let it be como a law by tho constitutional ten days in which to approvo or veto, and no man to this good day knows whether ho favored its passago or not. It has never dono anything for any railroad employe that I know of, and tho railroads can not protect thorn- solves from its provisions by requiring each man to examine carefully for himself all soaffoldinjr, machinery, cto., or other ways by which he might get hurt, or in working under cars to protect himself by blue flags, etc.; each man can sign an agreomont to that effect on taking employment with tho company. And they would be right. Ho claims to he the first to suggost tho Confederate home. As a matter of fact that honor belongs to Sul Ross and General McCulloch, who worked the matter up. Ho claims that ho procured tho passago of the usury law, when tho tiuth is ho had nothing to do with it and did not oven approve of it after the legislature had passed it. It be OHtiio a law without his signature See acts Twonty-second legislature, regu lar session, pago 40. He olaims to havo forced tho rail roads to have good passenger depots and to ktep them well lighted and wurin, oto, when the act requiring tLo same became a law without bis signa ture. See actB Twen yseoond legis lature, icgular session, pago 4C When called to account here in Hous ton forjdlowing so manj bills becom ing law without his signature ho said: "1 read them but did not sign them, for if I did they would go into effect immediately, and I was afraid they might injure someone, bo I lot them tako tho usual ten days." It would have hurt lots of people, wouldn't it, to havo signed the usury, tho good depot, tho fellow servants bill? "Rats!" If I could not give a hotter oxcuse for neglect of duty 1 would not give any at all. Neither'ono of these bills had an cmorgeucy olauso and could not have gone into effect until ninoty dajs after adjournment of tho legittlaturo If ho bad signed them in thirty places. Ho olaims ho followed the Demooratio platform and procured the passage of the sep arate coach bill for durkies, This bill did not get his signature. Seo aots Twonty second legislature, regular session, pago 45. Ho claims ho had a law passed regulating express compa nies, declaring them common carriers. This act beoamoahw without his ap proval. Seo aots regular seasion leg islature, pages 48 and 49 Ho claims credit for tho passago of tho law lor revisieg and oodifying the laws of tho Btato. This act did not get hW approval (seo acts Twenty second legislature, regular session, pages 53 and 54) Ho claims that ho procutod tho passago of an act regu lating the purohaso and salo of rail roads at judicial and other sales, but said act did not get his official approval (seo acts regular session of tho legis lature, 128, Ud and 180). Ho claims that he provided against is3uanco of bonds, eto., by cities aud towns, etc. Said act did not get his signature (seo acts regular session of the Twenty second legislature, pages 130 to 13b"). This, my fellow workmen, is a pait of his rcoord as governor. He seems to have adopted Jim Blaino's motto. 'Claim everything for me." Wo might just as well have bad THE WOODEN MAN that stands in front of M. T. Jones' office on Main street n ihe exeuutive chair. Out ol 11S bills passed bv the legislature, there were fifty five of the most important which did not receive his approval, et section 14 of article 4 of the constmon which he is sworn to support makes it his duty as gov ernor to approve or disapprove, and if he approves to sign, and if he dis approves to return it to the house in which it originated, with his objec tions. But, fellow workmen, what is the use of quoting the constitution to him? He seems to have been oblivi ous of the existence of that instru ment He seems to know none of the requirements of that instrument. Otherwise he would have never signed tho most iniquitous measure that was ever passei by any legislature in these United States the alien land act, twenty-second legislature, a bill that was passed in the dead hour of night, when half of the legislators were asleep and the balance too tired to know what they were doing. I have this on the testimony of Harry Tracy in his diacussion with Charles Stew art at Market Hall. Tracy was the steerer of the measure. This bill re ceived his signature, and although he had been repeatedly asked did he read it before signing it, he has made no reply. If he did so ought he nofc be impeached? If he read it and then signed it, then he stamps himself as an ignoramus, for it violates one of the plainest provisions of the consti tutionthat a bill shall not become a law without a head or title. This thing had no head and was promptly knocked out by the supreme court. But during its brief existence it cast sorrow and distress in 1 0,000 homes in Texas. That act ought to con demn him in the eyes of every honest workingman forever. We oucht not to have a man in ihe executive chair who does not know his duty, nor one that neglects it. Had he been as act ive and zealous in the discharge of the duties of his office as ho has been in trying to secure a second term he would n )t, perhaps, have been the subject of bo much jus'Iy nurited ad verse criiicism.

TEXAS CAR EXHIBIT. Disposition of tho Advertising Sont From Waco. Couydkn, Ind., May 10, 18o2. S. II. Popo. Secretary Donl or Trade, W'aoo, Texns.
