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.

Miniature
of Great Structure To Be
Erected
In Memory of Heroes
Built on Exact Proportions.
San Antonio, Texas, April 22. 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.

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.

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."
