Stinging Message If They
Fail to Pass Laws,

Austin, Tex., May I.—Legislature
members are discussing the report to
night that Governor Campbell will, on
the last day of the legislature, send a
stinging message to the lawmakers, de
signed to throw upon them any and all
blame for failure to pass several laws
sought and for whatever else the pub
lic may criticize.
Legislators declare that if this is true
they will remain in both halls long
enough to reply in the same spirit to
Campbell. The members tonight ap
pear worn and are anxious to return
home. It is practically conceded that
the bank guaranty bill will be passed.
All efforts to get the governor to say
definitely that he expects to call a third
special session failed this afternoon,

unless the bank guaranty bill passed.

PROSPECTIVE
STRIKERS IN
AN UGLY MOOD
Trouble Is Expected In Fiance
Next Monday If Strike
Is Ordered.
SETUATION IS SERIOUS,
BUT CITY IS QUIET
United Press.
Paris, May B.—The dissatisfied post
al employes will hold a meeting Sunday
at which it is expected the general
strike order will be issued and all of
the members of the union will leave
their posts. This means trouble Mon
day that may become widespread. The
government has a large force of men
and women waiting and the places of
all who join the strike are to be filled
without delay.
The prospective strikers are in a very
ugly mood. They declare that they will
prevent any strike breakers going ter
work at all costa and the result is that
the troops are again being massed in
the barracks closest to the point vmere
fighting is most expected.
The fact that the railway employes
have pledged support complicates the
situation. The dismissal W the seven
postmen who were charged with assail
ing the government parliament Under
Secretary of Posts Symian has again
directed public attention to that of
ficial and he is again being denounced
in all quarters. The fact that he was
compelled to bear the brunt of the re
sponsibility for the previous strike is
being referred to in all the newspapers
and it is suggested that the government
has carefuly planned to pnt him again
to the fore so that if public sentiment
is too strong Tor the strikers it can re
cede and make what will seem like an
enormous concession by dismissing him.
The situation is really serious, al
though the city is quiet. The govern
ment will rely on its carrier pigeon
' service to move the urgent messages,
and all others wil 1 be permitted to
await the settlement of the trouble.

St. Petersburg, May B.—Latest ad
vices from Persia tonight indicate that
the international conditions there arc
growing much worse instead of better.
The revolutionists are again gathering
between Kasvin and Teheran and their
outposts have already reached Tjarish.
The rebels are well armed and are ex
pected to make an attempt to carry
the capital by storm.
So serious is the situation considered
that the minister of war is already
preparing to reinforce the Russian

The bond* of the San Antonio Na- J
tional as county depository is:
$650,000 and was given on March 30
last, the agreement being that the bank
was to be the county depository until
February, 1911, receiving the county’s
monies. At that time the law providing
that the school funds shall be deposited
in the county depository had not been
passed. -
Notice From Supt. Cousins.
Several days ago the county commis
sioners received a letter from State
Superintendent of Instruction R. B.
Cousins, informing them that the bond
of the Bexar county depository seemed
to relate to the county funds only, and
did not cover the school funds. Con
tinuing, the letter stated:
“We have submitted the question to
the attorney general, and he advises
that this bond is not sufficient in form.
The school funds are paid out differ
ently from the other funds of the coun
ty, and must be accounted for, primar
iiy, to this department. The provisions
of a bond, may be changed with the con
sent of all Jarties thereto, and we sug
gest that the following provision be in
serted in the bond at the proper place:
“ ‘And shall upon presentation pay
all warrants drawn upon said deposi
tory by the school trustees of a dis
trict, when approved by the county
superintendent, whenever any school
funds shall be in said depository to the
credit applicable to the payment of said
warrants and shall faithfully account
for all school funds to the state super
intendent of public instruction accord
ing to law.
to the authority of the commis
sioners’ court in this matter, see section
31, chapter 164, acts of the Twenty
ninth legislative. Kindly give this mat
ter prompt attention, that there may
be no delay in the payment of state
school funds to your county next
year. ’ ’
Bank Submits Resolution.

-the sureties on its bond agrees to ac

“Resolved, that in order to carry

CHIEF OF ARMY STAFF
WILL SUCCEED MAJOR GENERAL
BEU WHO WILL BE TRANS
FERRED TO PHILIPINES
Washington, May 8. —It is generally
konwn in this city that Major General
Leonard Wood, now in command of the
military department of the east, is to
be the next chief of staff of the array.
General Wood will succeed Major Gen
eral J. Franklin 8011, who expects to
be transferred to the Philippines next
spring.
General Wood’s career has been one
of the most remarkable the army has
ever seen. He was born in New Hamp
shire, studied medicine, and in
was appoinWd an assistant surgeon in
the army. He participated in the In
dian wars and saw considerable serv
ice. It was not until he became the
family physician of the late President
McKinley, however, that he was really
started on the road to success.
He was captain and assistant sur
geon when, with the outbreak of the
war with Spain, in company with
Theodore Roosevelt, he organized what
was known as the Rough Rider* regir
ment. He later received a commission
as major general of volunteers, and in
1901 was appointed brigadier general

REFUSE CALL TO DUTY
United Pre ss Association.
New York, N. Y., May 8. —General
Stewart L. Woodford, minister to Spain
in 1898, chief Hughes boomer at the
last republican convention, and one of
the leading republicans in the United
States, tonight launched a boom for the
election of former President Roosevelt
next fall to be mayor of New York city.
The general returned from Europe a
week ago on the Hamburg, the same
steamer on which Colonel Roosevelt
went to Naples, and sounded tonight
the first note to have Colonel Roose
velt made the regular nominee in the
municipal campaign. He admits be
does this without having consulted
Colonel Roosevelt, but he calls atten
tion to the fact that mayoralty of New
York is second only in importance to
the presidency of the lunited States and
declares the former president is too big
a man to refuse a call to duty.
The only requisite for election, Gen
eral Woodford says, is that Colonel
Roosevelt shall return to the United
States before election day and declare
that he is a resident of the city and
n/t of Ovster Bay. This. General
Woodford thinks, he would do if the
exigencies were explained to him.

ing at Beethoven hall, when his candi
dacy for an eighth term as mayor of
San .Antonio was unanimously adopt
ed together with his platform and tick
et.
At every mention of the mayor's
name applause was given. The gather
ing of over 800 citizens, which filled
Beethoven hall, sought every opportun
ity to applaud mention of his honored
service, and no terms of eulogy seemed
too strong to express their appreciation
of the man.
Mayor Callaghan, himself, was un
able to he present, but scat word that
he knew he was “in the hands of bi*
friends. ”
W. A. Wurzbach called the meeting
to order at 8:30 o’clock and announced
that its purpose was to call the citizens
together to endorse the city ticket and
the candidacy of Mayor Callaghan. “I
am glad of this opportunity.” said he,
“because four years ago I told tbe peo
ple here in this hall that I believed
Bryan Callaghan the beat man for the
place and the best mayor the city ever
had.”
L. J. Hart Is Chairman.
L. J. Hart was named permanent
chairman. In a short speech Mr. Hart
said those gathered were there te
ratify a ticket of the whole people.
“There is nothing for us t« do to
night,” said he, “but to ratify the
ticket at which a man who has served
nobly for swen terms is at tbe head.”
Dr. Fred Terrell was th“n unanimous
ly chosen permanent secretary. Chair
man Hart called upon J. H. Kirkpatrick
to read the platform, and the ticket.
Applause greeted many of the para
graphs in the platform and followed
the mention of each name on the ticket.
Laying aside the platform Mr. Kirk
patrick launched into an eulogy of
Major Callaghan that raised ringing
chaos. The speaker told of tbe fact
that he himself had for years helped to
lead the opposition to Callaghan, but
that the work of the man had convinced
him that such was not wise, likewise
useless.
Mr. Kirkpatrick closed by saying:
“If he does as well in the future as in
the past then I am for Callaghan for
the next 20 years, for 30 years, if he is
spared to us—for alway*.” (Loud ap
