INTERVIEW What Representative Browning Says Concernig Land Commis- sioner Hall's Latest Letter to the IPanlianclle Representative. Fort Worth Gazette. Mobeetie, Texas, Oct. 1.—The pa- pers containing Land Commissioner Hall's latest open letter to Represen- tative Browning arrived here yester- day. In reply to the question of a Ga- zette reporter Mr. Browning stated to- day that he did not intend to pub- lish a reply to it. In response to further questioning by the reporter Mr. Browning said: "The Commissioner has finally made public the official interpretation of the land law, to obtain which has been my sole object from the beginning. I am compelled to dissent from that inter- pretation, which, in my opinion, vio- lates the plain intent and purport of the law and threatens the most serious consequences to the interests of this country. I do not question the good faith of the Commissioner, though he has so far forgotten the question at issue and the ordinary emenities of discussion ...

first provisions, ami under the pretense that compliance is impossible has radi- cally modiiied the third. The practical result is an unconstitutional lease sys- tem, which nut only bars the way against future development, but wherever the laud is wanted by the pasture interests denies the right of present settlement—a result so foreign to the sentiment of the people of the entire state that I confidently expect for it the condemnation of all who sympathize with our efforts to develop this country, without regard to faction, party or locality." Speaking of the present results of the Commissioner's policy, Mr. Brown- ing said: "As an evidence of the reck- lessness of his policy, he accepted, in- discriminately, all the applications to lease from the time tiie act look elfect, and boasted in his first letter of having leased 4,000,000 acres in tiie first thirty days. In tiie same letter lie admits that he had advices from El Paso to Bowie and from tiie lower Uio Grande to tiie Panhand...

Loaded with Lead. El Paso,Tex., Oct 16.—E. E. Smith, the Wells, Fargo & Co.' messenger, who slew the two train robbers last night, was seen by a reporter this morning at the Southern Pacific depot. He made the following statement: "About 9 o'clock last evening I left El Paso on the Galveston, Harrisburg and San Antonio through east-bound passenger as express messenger for the Wells, Fargo & Co. About half way between El Paso and Ysleta the train stopped. I heard a shot and thought it was a track signal torpedo. I then heard loud swearing, and on sticking my head out of the door saw a man firing a revolver. I blew out the lights, and with Mr. Beardsley, clerk of the Fort Worth office, who was in the car with me, retired to the baek of the car. As I did this the robber put giant powder in the place and blew the door open. I told Beard- ley he had better get out first with his gun on his person.

Maud was a young lady whom be worshiped rather humbly from afar— she being rich, beautiful, and of a for- midably aristocratic family, while he was a lone Bohemian—but with whom he could claim artistic kinship, since he and and she had studied in the same building. She was an amateur, it happened, and he a breadwinner; they both managed to turn out some very good work, and each was often of as- sistance to the other. One fine morning in early summer Miss Maud—whose surname was Satter- lee—entered her stiuiie with a slight shadow on her high bred, rose fair face. Her companion, a charm ng bru- nette girl a little her senior, followed, looking amused. Miss Fortescue was a happy compromise bctweed chaper- one and confidante. She was a girl of excellent sense and judgment and brim- ful of humor, wh:ch was fortunate, for Maud had only a father, who was in ...
