hill is being; backed by .the American
Legion of Texas and was the resnlt
of an effort to colonise Japanese in
the Rio Grande valley.
Despite the fact that the public
utilities bill has been carefully con
sidered by a special committee ap
pointed by the governor and representing-
the varied interests involved,
considerable debate is expected on
this measure before It is disposed of.
The bill as drafted does not pro
pose to create a new commission, but
to enlarge the scope of the railroad
commission and vest in that body the
jurisdiction over the public utilities
of Texas. An increase in the salaries
of the members of the commission
from f4509 to 97500 Is proposed, and
the measure also provides for a gen
eral solicitor for the commission at
a salary of 97300 a year.
Tax Code Revision.
Revision of the tax code will be
proposed in a bill by representative
John T. Smith of Travis county, in
which it is planned to have a uni
form system of taxation. This bill
Is designed to equalize taxation and
to place on the rolls much property
that is now escaping taxation, ac
cording to representative Smith.
J. A. King, state tax commissioner,
has prepared bills proposing the cre
ation .of a state tax commission,
amending the intangible asset tax
law so as to Include various classes
of corporations including oil com
panies, packing houses, coal, lumber,
wharf, steamship, express, telegraph,
interurban. pipe lines, telephone,
electric railways, oil refining com
panies, sulphur, light, gas, soft drink
and mail order companies and per
Four bills are to be introduced by
representative Williams of McLen
nan county, designed for the protec
tion of the Texas farmers. One of
these measures will require cotton
samplers to take out ,a license and
stand examination before carrying
on business. Another bill will give
protection to the independent cotton
compresses and mills so that the
I smail man may have bis cotton
compressed and shipped explditiously.
It is also proposed in one of these
, bills to prohibit the taking or ex

SAX FRANCISCO, Calif Jan. 4.
American Samoa's beetle-inspecting
chief of police Is out of jail
and the judge who has seven other
jobs is again holding court, according
to advices from Tutuila. This change
back to normal followed a naval in
quiry which resulted In dissipating
an attempt by a naval officer and a
former newspaper reporter to control
t he naval administration of the
American possession in the South
In furtherance of this attempt the
naval officer. Creed H. Boucher. liea
tenant commander, and the ex-repor
ter, Arthur A. Greene, enlisted the
support of commander A. C Kail,
second In rank to commander Warren
J. Terhune, governor of the islands
The three piled charges against Ter
hune and his administration, and
finally Kail tried to send a wireless
message fe the navy department at
Washington branding his superior as
Terhune Commits Suicide.
With the message in front of him,
Terhune. suffering from ill health,
committed suicide. The pitiful part
of this tragedy developed when the
naval court of inquiry, already en
route to Tutuila from, Hawaii, ab
solved Terhune s administration-of all
charges, recommended the deporta
tion of Greene, the court martial of
Boucher and the removal of Kail from
Among the charges filed against
Terhune's administration was one
that officials were drawing illegal
extra salaries. J. Burkin liailo. na
tive chief of police, and judge A. II
Nbble were especial targets of
Boucher, Greene and KaJL
After commander Terhane shot
himself Kail became acting governor
and he jailed Mailo on charges that
the chief of pol ce had urged the
natives to oppose the activities of
Greene and Kail. Previously Boucher
had alleged that irregularities of the
Terhune administration Included
ing jiauo as "Deetie inspector" as
well as head of the police force, but
inai no oeeues were inspected.
The board of inquiry sat for eight
days. Testimony revealed that Bou

and falsehood Boucher's examination
revealed that he posd as a secret
service man without authority; pub
licly criticised the secretary of the
navy and the president; insubordl
nately communicated with authorities
at Washington in violation of regu
lations, and committed many other
breaches of natal regulations.
Upon examination he declined to
answer many questions on the ground
that the answers would incriminate
himself. He acknowledged that all
charges he made were based upon
hearsay and without investigation. It
was revealed that documents were
stolen from naval officers, but an at
tempt to introduce these by Greene,
who acted as Boucher's counsel, was
overruled by the board.
The testimony revealed also that
Greene and Bou her created unrest
among the natives in an effort to
change the government and assume
control for themselves. Their activ
ities resulted in organization of na
tives into a "committee. which for
warded an appeal to president Wil
son to remove governor Terhune. and
the nati e unrest was manifested by
