Governor Colquitt attempts to Just ify his action in vetoing the appropria tions for the A. and M. College by - criticising the management of the col lege, saying they had been "upending money like pouring water In a rat "lole." He quotes the appropriations "ior the college for the past two years, -quotes the enrollment, and then by a locus pocus calculation claims the ap propriations amount Jo $387 per stu dent per annum. This is the same old rgument used by Colquitt, Bralley t al. when they were trying to con solidate the A. and M. College with the State University. The Governor very adroitly brings Into his charges against the college the appropriations tor the Texas Experiment Stations, which are scattered all over Texas, and are separate and distinct In every way, In management, control and sup port, from the A. and M. College and have no more right to be charged tip to it than It would be right to charge to the college the expenses of any State department or State institution. This per capita charge matter was threshed out during the consolidation campaign and the same charges were brought then by Colquitt, Bralley et al. as Colquitt now brings in justification of his unjustifiable veto act A state ment was issued by the authorities of the college at that time, In which those Items not chargeable to the col lege, and which were not an expense to the taxpayers of Texas, were elimi natd, and It showed that the charge per capita per annum, for which money was appropriated by the State, amounted to $175. The people of Texas understand the proposition thoroughly, and that they have confi dence in the management of the col lege and appreciate in the highest sense the great work It is doing, was voiced and given expression in the overwhelming defeat of Resolution 18. The strangest thing about Governor Colquitt's explanation of his veto is that he thinks it such a crime against the taxpayers of Texas for it to cost two or. three hundred dollars per Btu dent per annum at the A. and M. Col lege and the State University, and does not say one word about the cost per head of the State convicts per year to the taxpayers. The Investigation by members of the Legislature, headed by Lieutenant Governor Mayes himself, showed that the cost to the State per man per year was 1470, and this, too, in the face of the fact that the convicts are working for the State, working the State's own land, and the richest land, too, that a crow ever flew over. The penitentiary system tColauitt's system) Involved the State In a debt of two million dollars In two years, r THE BRYAN DAHY EA(llJS fir f SEPTEMBER, d W 1913 1913 m SvS Sun. Hon. Toes. M. Ttar. M.

Ike Stort for Vahts in Men's Apparel and so outrageous and preposterous a failure was the Colquitt system that Lieutenant Governor Mayes remarked that It would be cheaper for the tax payers If the State would send its convicts on a pleasure trip around the world rather than pursue the present policy. Colquitt thinks it's all right for the State to spend four or five hundred dollars a year to support a convict. but thinks It an outrage to spend two or three hundred dollars a year In the education of ber sons. This Is not an Idle statement, nor a statement made through prejudice, but is proven to be the gospel truth by the fact that he moved heaven and earth to secure ap propriations, bond Issues and every other form or method of raising money to support the penitentiaries, but when It came to the A. and M. College and the University drew forth his blue pencil "a yard long" and vetoed their appropriations, leaving them only a pittance, and saying by his actions, "Live on this crust or starve." m FA LSI TODAY FROM 2:00 P.
