Several Valuable Ones Secured by Mr.

While atending the Retail Hard

characteristic of, him, secured from

(STa. W. Buchanan Tells of the
Great Hardware and Implement
Deilers Association.
Messrs. J, Allen Myers and A. W.
Buchanan returned last night from
the meeting of the Retail Hardware,
Implement and Vehicle Dealers Asso
ciation in Dallas. Both were highly
impressed with the importance of the
meeting and the great good that may
come out of It for the people of Texas.
In discussing the meeting with Mr.
Buchanan yesterday, he said: 'it was
the most interesting and valuable
meeting I ever attended." Anion the
multitudinous questions discussed, the
paramount Jssue was "Freight rates
in Texas."
Railroad Commissioner ' O. B. Col
quitt was present and addressel the
meeting, explaining In detail I ha au
thority and the operation of the com
mission. He showed many instances
wherein the commission was powei
less to act because their rulings were
in conflict with the rulings of the in
terstate Commerce Commission. He
stated a3 a positive fact, that by a
coalition of certain steamship lln.?s
and the railroads of the state, that
water, rate competition to the sea
ports of Texas had been destroyed.
Mr. Colquitt stated if he were gov
ernor, he would subsidize a steamshlo
line between Xew York and some '
Texns port and build a railroad from'
the Red river to connect with said !
port.
It was very conclusively shown
that Texas was imposed upon more
in freight rates than any other state
in the I'nion.
Mr. Buchanan thinks If the whole
people could be aroused ns are the
retail dealers, something would be
done.
A resolution was Introduced by
Messrs. Buchanan and Myers pledg
ing the co-operation of the Association
to the Farmers' Union in their effort
to secure a greater consumntion of
low grade cotton by its manufacture
Into cotton bagging, cotton rope etc.
The resolution was nassp.i u-ithnnt
dissenting voice.
The meeting was one of the most
important ever held by a body . of
business men In Texas, and portends
great good to the state.
The meeting adjourned at 6 n. ro.
Thursday afternoon.

Texas npplylnng to towns and cities
of 1000 Inhabitants and over, are al
lowed to levy a tax of thenty five
cents on each $100.00 of value for
public improvement. We have been
collecting this tax for many years.
and therefore cannot increase the tax
now or any time In the iiiture, except
after the city has 10.000 inhabitants,
and then only on authority of the leg
islature, af'er the citizens have voted
the adoption of a new charter.
A vote for the Bond issue DOES
NOT INCREASE your tax.

OUR WIFE'S ECONOMY.
(By Joe McGee)
Wife thought to use economy
And so she made some hominy,
No need to tell you it was fine
vtnen twas the good old fashioned
kind
That mother made In days, gone by,
From hichory ashes, dripped the lye.
So when we came In from our route
Its fragrance almost made us shout
Just lift the lid from off the pot
And take a whiff while its hot.
No scented breezes from the rose
E'er came more pleasing to the aose
Than good old lye-cleanej hominv
When we are tired and "hunger-rv '
Then lay all cares of life aside
And eat till we -ere satisfied.
From price of corn and quaim
We can not claim economy.
