For more t han a year ι his paper ban from time to time endeavored to show the dangers lurking in the free pass system, and to < reate senti ment against the practice. At the county democratic convention last summer the editor of the Light pre sented and the convention adopted a resolution declaring against the free pass evil and instructing the delegates to the state convention to use their best efforts to secure the adoption of a plank in the state plat form demanding the enactment of a Stringent an'i-tree pass law. This demand was incorporated into the state platform and became a part of the democratic law by whi< h every man. elected to the legislature on the democratic ticket. should have felt himself honor bound to abide The evils of the free pass ;ind i's in fluence in legislation had become mi pronounced that the people -.aid it must cease, notwithstanding the state < on vent.(in wa- alleged to have be«-n composed of delegates a major ity of whom, went there on passes The evil has grown from \e«r to year iniil tow men>l>· s «»ι the i»-gi« lature not only have no hesitancy in accepting pas--», for 'hem>elves and mem;·*! of then fann ·-*. but daily wake ►·(.!· · e iispcr'a 11. h ■ - !>»<:- \> Migrating ι he · ■ 11 Λ > ' h ' ·· ,'Γ.ιι tile 4·' » *1 ·Λ · : eft'·'OtilICM Ι Ί· 111 W \ · I* ·!:■··■ of W. ·: . .· in he I>allas New·* Tf · . ·. ·! fag free ailn td pmm ··» h· Ί· · . i '.!· ' μιιΐΊ ■.·.!.· • hat »«Ul*t(W| can gel [m»*e* that • he-· . - t r ■ .-lui» III ■in x hem 111 !.. · , , ι .

Thus, the story of the Alamo was not repeated. Some of the railroads have receiv ed requests for annual passes to be issued to constituents of members of the legislature. One pretty good sized request was for transportation for two families which were moving clear across the state. Some of the members of the legis lature have been asked to get passes for so many people that they have been ashamed το make application all in a bunch, and. therefore, have split them up into sections, asking first one railroad mau and then an other. In some instances the trans portation was all to he over a single line, and the application finally got to one man; nevertheless they were, divided up and presented to different persons in order that the unwilling ! applicant should not blush himself | to death. Comment on the above is hardly necessary. The facts themselves are the severest strictures that could be passed upon a body of men honored by the suffrage of the people and en trusted with certain defined duties: The failure of the legislature to pass a decent anti-free pass law is an outrage upon the honest yeomanry of the state. It is a bargaining of the state's honor and the state's best interests for the favor of a railroad pass with a Pullman attachment. A legislator might accept free trans portation for himself without feel ing under any special obligation to the bestowing road, but when he so licits them for his family and friends he can no longer hold up his head and tell his constituents that he is free from railroad influence. He cannot become the distributing agent of railroad favors without putting himself in position to be called on j to assist railroad interests. Defend themselves as they may, it cannot he denied that the free pass is the most subtle and the most poisonous in fluence in legislation today, both staTe and naiiona!. The Light re grets that the Ellis county members ! of the house have not seen fit to make an aggressive fight for this | plaTform demand. Mr. Alderdice, we understand, always voted for the bill, loaded a$ it was with hindering amendments. Mr. James, we believe, has consistently voted against the measure, at least his vote was re corded for postponement to March ψ SB S·, which meant death te the bfU. I! the occurrence· detailed by the News are not sufficient to awaken the members of the legislature to the evils of the practice in which they are engaged, then indeed, will the people arise in their majesty and cast from place and power every man who refuses to obey the letter of his instructions, and in their places put men with strength of character enough to resist the blan dishments of the railroads and other special interests. The promiscuous giving of passes upon the request of the legislator is not courtesy. It is a species of bribery, and no one un derstands this better than the rail road lobbyist. The intent is not to confer a favor, but to place the recipient under obligations; to pervert his judgment and, per chance, enlist his support. The legis lature may evade the demand this time, but the voice of the people will [yet be heard. SHAKESPEARE CLUB. Quest ion»· un th«· 1 .«■—<-«»n fur the Meet illi» Mardi :£8.
