He was met by a number of young men, who held him while hia assinine jaws were «lapped by sev eral ladies. At Rrenham he waa kindly requested not to leave the train, or he would be the central figure in a lynhcing bee. An escort went with him to Galveston where he was placed on a steamer bound tor New York, and told if he ever set his hoofs on Texas soil again hell would be cool compared with his reception. His treatment was too lenient; his back should have ! been striped and salted and a coat lof tar and feather* added to his I adornment.

Another drnmmer sitting near jumped up and started at Knight to give him a drubbing for his remark, whon Knight gave the Masonic distress sign, and the other drum mer stopped and answereu it. There were no Cameron people in the hotel at the time, but the word was passed around and when Knight ap peared on the street he was asked by Blount MeCord if he made tfcp remark attributed to him. He re plied: yes, but I will explain. Blount said no explanation was nec essary, and knocked him down and was giving him a good drubbing when parties ran up and pulled him off, not knowing what the difficulty was about.
