MAY BUILD The Brazos County Good Roads Club, to which the Bryan Automobile Club has changed its name, accompanied by Prof. R. J. Potts of the A. and M. Col lege, held a conference with the Com missioners' Court yesterday. The ob ject was to interest the court in a proposition to build a demonstration sand-clay road from Bryan to Well born on practical lines that could be followed on all the roads of the county in case it is a success. The club asks the court to build the road, offering to keep it in perfect condition for one year, at the end of which time they will report to the court the exact cost and the methods used in the upkeep. This data could then be used In the upkeep of the other roads of the county, or rather the methods that proved successful. The court will get an estimate of the cost of building the road from a competent engineer before any steps are taken. However, the members of the court regard the proposition favor ably, and no doubt the people of the county would like to see .the experi ment made.

The replica of the proposed monument to be erected to the heroes of the Alamo was unveiled last night. There was quite an assemblage, presided over by Judge J. E. Webb, president of the organization which has undertaken the task of building the monument. The principal address of the even- ing was by A. B. Storey, who asserted that the great pile could easily be con- structed and that It would be by the people of Texas. The replica is 23 feet in height and three feet square at the base, the ex- act proportions of the monument to be erected, which will be 802 feet high and 85 feet square at the base. At each corner, above the massive pillars, which in the big monument will be 75 feet high and placed on granite blocks 50 feet high, are statues of four of the Alamo heroes, Crockett, Travis, Bon ham and Bowie. Small models of the statues have been designed by Peter H. Mansbendel of Austin, who will ex ecute the statues for the big monu ment, and these will be placed on the replica. At each Bide of the replica, just below where the shaft joins the base, are panels of scenes about the Alamo on the morning of March 6, 1836, when the fortress was finally as sailed by an overwhelming force and all its defenders put to death. Plans and specifications for the Alamo heroes' monument were pre pared by the Alfred Giles Company. AH material used in the construe tion of the replica was donated by San Antonio business men. The replica is an artistic gem and should prove one of the features of Fiesta week. It will be decorated with flags during the day and beautifully illuminated each night, a large globe of light at the top being one of the crowning features. Already an offer has been received from a Tennessee-Texan to furnish free all the marble required in the building of the great monument that will be 802 feet high and the highest structure In the world. Tennessee was the home of Gen. Sam Houston and of David Crockett, and of many men that have helped make Texas famous, and it is thought "Very fitting If any mate rial is to be used from outside Texas that it should come from Tennessee, with which this State has always been so closely affiliated. The offer of mar ble has come from R. J. Thomas of Cooper, Texas. s EOR PROBATE Less Than $20,000,000 Left In Special Bequests Disposition of ' Art Treasures. By Associated Press. New York, April 22. Interest in the will of the late J. P. Morgan, made public Monday, centered today In the question of the financier's estate and in what disposition his son would make of the vast collection of Morgan art treasures. Less than $20,000,000 was accounted for in the specific be quests made by Mr. Morgan, the re mainder being the residuary portion left to the son without mention of the amount. Some estimates made today placed COLQUITT VETOED 9:30 . CIVIL SALOON BILL j Gives as a Reason the Attitude of the Com troller in Construing the Law-Says the 9:30 Criminal Statue Serves Same . . , Purpose-Vetoed Marketing Board ? By Associated Press. Austin, Texts, April 18. Governor Colquitt this morning vetoed the civil bill providing for 9:30 p. m. saloon closing. Numerous clerical errors crept into the bill, but the Attorney General held the intention of the law, rather than the exact wording, should be taken Into consideration. This did not meet the approval of Comptroller Lane, who passes on all applications for saloon license. In his veto of the bill the Governor says: -"The Comptroller's attitude in dicates a disinclination to co-operate with the other departments In a har monious administration and interpreta tion of the law. In view of tils atti tude, and further reasons, I see no good purpose in raising a row later on the total estate as high as $125,000,000, but according to a member of the firm of J. P. Morgan & Co., not even the son himself can tell within many mill ions the actual value of the fortune. Until appraised by the State for the purpose of collecting the inheritance tax the question probably will remain open. J. p. Morgan declined today to -Bay anything in regard to the disposition of the art treasures, but it was inti- mated he might make a statement some time this week. The treasures were left to the son with the hope "he will be able in such manner as he thinks best to make a permanent dls- position of them or such portions of them as will be a substantial carrying out of the intentions which I have cherished to render them permanently for the pleasure and instruction of the American people."
