In answer to an agitation for bet
ter county roads the county commis
sioners in session this week issued
a call for a special road tax election
setting the date for the election on
November 8th and placing the addi
tional road tax at fifteen cents on the
hundred dollar valuation This places
the matter squarely up to the prop
erty taxpayers of the county At the
same time the commissioners reduced
the regular county tax rate from forty
three to fortyone cents It has been
demonstrated and is generally under
stood that the present road tax col
lected by the county is insufficient
for anything further than keeping up
temporary repairs on the present
roads and if the county is to have
materially improved roads more
money must be available for the
work The additional fifteen cents
asked for would be asmall item to
the individual taxpayer and at the
same time give thecounty a consid
erable fund to work with With this
additional money roads could be grad
ed and clayed and sanded and experi
ments could be made with gravel The
roads once put in good shape could
be kept so by the cooperation of the
people through the adoption of the

The Herald believes that if the
park question is considered fairly by
the voters of the city that it will be
voted on favorably All progressive
cities have park places and no record
is had of where any such pleasure
places have been abandoned
The legislature is inclined to be
nifty about the advice offered by the
convention in Galveston and the
chances are that this fatherly advice
will go the way of much other advice
gratuitously offered Sass em boys
Those fellows are getting too suggest

Be sure and cast your vote in the

the contests on the majority basis
which is fair
Brethren the Herald is ready right
now or at any time to help in boost

in making the effort to fill this coun

is absolutely necessary to fill this
county with a farming population if
we expect to retain our lead among

The Texas democratic declaration
on the tariff is simply this We are
opposed to any kind of a protective
tariff but if such a tariff must exist
then we demand the very largest slice
of the cake that can be cut In this
way the democratic party would get
rid of the protective tariff in about
four thousand years
The democratic state convention
ndorsed the present administration
for having placed the platform de
mands on the statute books And yet
this has been the chief cause of
abuse heaped on Governor Campbells
head There are others who have
said that a gimletheaded convention
could not bind them with a platform

Fuller and Others Offer Resolution
Censuring Galveston Convention
For Its Course
Austin Texas Aug 11 The first
thing the house did this morning was
to undertake to tell the state conven
tion that it had exceeded its function
by attempting to invade the provnce
of the legislature and it served notice
on future state conventions to attend
to their own business At the open
ing of the session the following reso
lution was offered by F O Fuller of
Cold Springs and others
Whereas under a representative
form of government and according to
the policies and customs heretofore
followed and adhered to by the demo
cratic party in the state of Texas the
function of the state democratic con
vention is to declare the result of a
primary election or of precinct and
county conventions and to announce
the principles upon which said party
stands without referring to the duty
of any legislature at that time in ses
sion and
Whereas it is the duty of the state
legislature to discharge the lawmak
ing function of the state government
Whereas the recent state demo
cratic convention at Galveston in its
platform under the last clause of sec
tion nine used the following language
And we recommend that the Thir
tyfirst legislature now in special ses
sion dispose of the fire rating board
law adjourn and go home
Now therefore be it resolved
That said clause in said section of
said platform is in bad taste uncalled
for not responsive to any demands
made by a majority of the people and
that said state convention in adopt
ing said resolution attempted to in
vade the province of the Thirtyfirst
And be it further resolved That
in the future state democratic con
ventions will do well to attend to
their own business of discharging the
functions which they were created to
discharge without attempting to dic
tate to any legislature at that time
in session what line of conduct said
legislature shall pursue
The introduced resolution created
applause and precipitate discus
sion that was not concluded when the
hour for the consideration of resolu
tions expired and the matter went
over until tomorrow
