The radicals in the suffragette move ment are the worst enemies of the cause. The chance discovery is made that President Eliot of Harvard can not milk a cow.

Entered In the postofflce at Mes- ulte, Texas, as second class matter. *^SS ASSOC Friday, April lfi, 1909. Gov. Campbell certainly "handed the Legislature a hot one. He put it on so strong, however, as to make it appear that he was flaying to the grandstand. It is dollars to doughnuts that in his proposed plan for the benefit of the Southern cotton growers, Daniel J. Sully sees something in it for Sully as well. A roster of the prominent Democrats of Texas, other than our United States Senators, may be had by referring to the list of probable candidates for gover- nor. Ten cent cotton and dollar and a half wheat sounds good to the farmer with cotton and wheat to sell, but the trouble is that most of it is now owned by the speculators. The publisher of the Social- ist newsp£per, '"The Appeal to Reason," says that the paper is running behind $100 a day. Evi- dently t...

Austin: Gov. Campbell Sunday sent to the Legislature two messages. The first, which was delivered to the Senate when It met In the morning, nnd to the House when It met this afternoon, was in the nature of a roast, giving his reasons for having to call a second special session. Later in the day he sent In a second message, transmitting his proclama- tion for a second session. The text of these mesages follows: Executive Office, April 10, 1909.—To the Legislature: The Constitution of this State imposes upon the Governor, among other things, the duty to 'rec- ommend to the Legislature such meas- ures as he may deem expedient." Com- pliance with this provision of the Con- stitution is always the source of much annoyance to the servants of special interests who may wish to serve their masters without...

That anti-trust bill which Represen- tative Jenkins has Introduced for the third time, having for Its prime pur- pose the expulsion of the Waters- Pierce Oil Company from the State— that is, to prevent its coming back through any process of reorganization —promises to kick up quite a row, since it has been discovered that it will probably cause a lot of Texas cor- porations and citizens a great deal of trouble.

The first question now is not what the Legislature did yester- day, but how did the ball games come out yesterday. The criticism of Miss Ida Tar bell by the Standard Oil attor neys only serve to emphasize the service Miss Tarbell has render- ed to the people.

Rupert Win- ter saw Cary Mercer was under cir- cumstances calculated to fix the inci- dent firmly in his memory. In the year 1903, home from the Philippines on furlough, and preparing to return to a task big enough to attract him in spite of its exile and hardships, he had visited the son of a friend at Har- vard. They were walking through the corridors of one of the private dormi- tories where the boy roomed. Rather grimly the soldier's eyes were noting marble wainscoting and tiled floors, and contrasting this academic en- vironment with his own at West Point. A caustic comment rose to his lips, but it was not uttered, for he heard the sharp bark of a pistol, followed by a thud, and a crackle as of breaking glass. "Do you fellows amuse yourselves shooting up the dormitory?" said he. The boy halted; he had gone white. "It came from Mercer's room!" he cried, and ran ...
