-f t r $ COMMENTS BY THE COMMERCIAL SECRETARIES Swat the Fly. A good fly, like a Rood Indian, is a dead one. What Texas needs is fewer laws and more fly paper.

The Taft delegation was est imated by par- tisans and opponents at from 150 to 300. The estimate of the Post's correspondent was 225. There was only one place in which the Taft delegates suc- ceeded in springing surprise. That was when they went into session without even attempting to participate in the convention at the Savoy Theater. The Savoy convention was held in the sched- uled place, though it started an hour late...
