Mr Jarvis made the point of order that
the county road improvement bill was
the special order as it had been set for
Monday and from day to day untildis
posed of The bill was taken up and
considered by sections Strong opposition
was made to the bill on account of its
property qualifications as a prerequisite
to the right to vote for bonding the
Mr Cranford introduced an amend-
ment to the effect that persons hi the first
instance forbidden by this law to vote for
bonds shall never be taxed to pay interest
or principal of such bonds
Mr McDonald made the point that
such an exemption and distinction was
entirely unconstitutional
Mr Cranford replied that he knew it
was but he introduced it to show the
true meaning of that part of the bill
He was entirely opposed to such a prop-
erty qualification
Mr Jarvis offered an amendment
striking out the property qualification
Such qualification was not in his original
bill It was put there by the cqmniittee
and ho was not in favor of it Upon mo-
tion Mr Cranfords amendment was
Mr Simkins thought the bill in this re-
quirement was not unconstitutional He
thought tho term suffrage in the con-
stitution applied only to political elec-
tions and not cases ot this kind where
taxes are to be voted
Mr Lane thought it was not a question
of increasing taxation but of the method
of collecting money to improve the roads
Mr Burgess hotly opposed tho prop-
osition to disfranchise anyone
Ho was bitterly opposed to any property
qualification as called for in the bill
He declared that such disfranchisement
would be the surest and speediest mode
of building up the Republican party in
Texas to respectable proportions
Mr Stephens ofiered an amendment to
the amendment more clearly specifying
that such voters must bo qualified voters
Mr Jarvis amendment as thus
amende was adopted by a vote of 19
yeas to 4 nays
Mr Frank offered an amendment that
notice of election shall be published
in some newspaper in the county once a
week for two months before
the election In case of no newspaper in
such county then a sufficient number of
notices shall be conspicuously posted
throughout the county The amendment
was adopted
Pending further discussion of the bill

A Nashville dispatch says A suit to
recover a fourth interest in an estate
reckoned at 300000 filed in the David-
son county courts recalls a romance of
unusual interest Isaao Franklin was
once the richest man in the South
owning four big plantations and
more negroes than any other slave
holder except Gen Wade Hamp
tons father At his princely home he
kept a visitors register and one day a
party of young Nashville people on a
frolic called and inscribed their names
Adecilia Hayes the then belle of the
South was one of these and careless of
consequences wrote opposite her
name her
her cap
The rich
intention of
for old man Franklin
widower was caught
in the trap and married Miss Hayes
Franklin soon died leaving a young and
lovely widow worth 4000000 Some-
time later Joseph Aoklen a young law-
yer of Huntsville Ala proposed to a
party friends that if they would give him
1000 for expenses ho would ensnare the
wealthy widow Acklen was smart and
handsonia and his friends provided him
with the requisite cash With a show of
wealth Acklen laid siege to the heart of
Mrs Franklin and soon they were mar-
ried They built a country home called
Belmont a superb place surrounded
by seventyfive acres of ornamented
grounds with conservatories music hall
billiard pagoda and zoological garden
and entertained regally Acklen died
during the war leaving four
children one of whom Hon Joseph
H Acklen formerly a member of
congress from Louisiana is plaintiff in
the suit spoken of Mrs Acklen some-
time later married Dr W B Cheatham
of this city Fifteen hundred invitations
wero issued and many guests from
Europe were present at the nuptials
After the war Mrs Cheatham sued
the government for 1000000 for
damages to a cotton crop and won
her cause Her attorney was the
confederate general Gideon J Pillow
who was to receive 100000 as his fee
but the widow demurred and the de-
murrer was sustained Since then the
estate has wasted away until when Mrs
Cheatham recently died at the Fifth
avenue hotel in New York it was not es-
timated to be worth more than 300000
for a fourth interest in which young Ack
len brings suit

and S Smith who compose the
board of directors of the Lumber dealers
association of Texas The complainants
state that they are the owners of a larjre
and extensive sawmill which with the
adjoining land and appurtenances is
worth 270000 and was capable of an
output of 12000000 feet of lumber an-
nually from which the plaintiffs were
making a clear net profit of 100000
annually that the defendants entered
into a trust called the Texas Lumber
dealers association whose purpose
was to keep up high prices
in lumber and to defraud and oppress
the public Seotion thirteen of the by-
laws of the association reads Whenever
any manufacturer or wholesale dealer
shall sell to any person not a dealer ex-
cepting railroad companies and at such
points where there are no dealers such
sales shall be reported to the secretary
and he shall notify the members of this
association to discontinue their patronage
with such manufacturer or wholesale
dealer that the plaintiffs incurred the
displeasure of tho association by exer-
cising their rights as citizens
to sell to others than dealers

of the association at Austin and which
was sent to all the lumber dealers in the
state notifying them that the plaintiffs
and several other firms had violated sec-
tion 13 and asking them to discontinue
their patronage to said manufacturers
that the circular was the direct cause of
the plaintiffs losing their large and
prosperous business with lumber
dealers and that since they have
been compelled to resort entirely to
sales to consumers to dispose of
their lumber The complainants ask for
judgmentfor 100000 actual and 25
000 exemplary damages and pray for an
injunction against the defendants prohib-

Facts and Fancies Concerning Phonosrraphic
Eugene L Didier in the Writer
Phonography the only perfect system
of shorthand was invented in 1S37 by
Isaac Pitman a school teacher of Bath
England It has superseded all others
and is now almost universally used for
verbatim reporting It combines a per-
fect phonographic representation of the
English language expressed by the simple
signs formed of right lines curves
dots and dashes Phonography meets
all the requirements tor a complete
philosophical system ol writing It
is easy to learn easy to write easy
to read and capable of reporting
the most rapid speakers The old sys-
tems of shorthand were so full of per-
plexing and arbitrary characters and com-
plicated contractions that it took years of
intense and unceasing study to acquire a
proficiency in any of them and even
then it was not possible to make a ver-
batim report of any except tne most
moderate speakers Isaac Pitman had
studied one of the best systems of steno-
graphy for seven years and could only
write 100 words a minute And unless
it were written with the utmost care
stenography was as hard to read as the
characters inscribed on the tombs found
in the pyramids of Egypt
A shorthand reporter should be clever
and intelligent There is a story told of
an unedueated reporter who is said to
have rendered the wellknown Latin
quotation Amicus Plato amicus Socra-
tes sed major Veritas as follows I
may cuss Plato I may cuss Socrates
said Major Veritas Elihu Bur
