BRYAN, TEXAS, FEBRUARY 9, 190'J.
Don't Blame the Legislature.
Those legislators who are crying "A
subsidized press" and making bold the
ascertions that the country papers ara
under the thumbs a corporations and
illegitimate business enterprises, are
surely suffering from diseased minds.
With such reaks In the law making
body, it Is perfectly plain the insane
asylums ought to be made larger.
It is unfr.lr to blame tbe legislators.
One of them, Hon. Roger Eyrne, used
the language you object to, but he was
quoting Governor Compbell. Since the
governor has not denied saying it, it
is fair to hold him responsible. It
was an insult to every country paper
in the state and seme of these which
have been strong supporters of the
governor are resenting it as it d

In the interest of good morals let
us have no more laws that encourage
perjury and hypocrisy.
A good many people regard the cock

never be converted.
A LESSON FROM THE TRUSTS.
The trusts are responsible for much
evil but, whether they intended it or
not, they have done great good in dem
onstrating to the world the power of
co-operation on a large scale. They
have shown how by means of organi
zation waste can 'be eliminated and
the highest degree of effectiveness de
veloped. Scientists have taken the hint
and by means of better equipment and
a division of labor, secured through
co-operntlon, have in the last ten years
made more discoveries than had been
accomplished in all the preceding cen
turies. The churches and other relig
ious and moral Institutions have
ceased to fight each other and are now
making common cause for the uplift
ing of humanity over all the earth.
And, most Important of all, statesmen
have learned the folly of wars, by
which even the victor is a loser, and
are laboring to perfect a system of in
ternational co-operation which has al
ready progressed so far that no nation
goes to war without the consent of
The trusts have demonstrated that
great things can be accomplished by
co-operation and in no other way. The
town where the people are organized
and all worklnng together for the com
mon good never fails to prosper.

Dr. Truett read for the scripture

his brief comments as he read were
gems of great beauty and prepared the
