According to A. M. Howard,
the party’s candidate for mayor
at the recent city election, and
who was chosen financial secre-
tary of the dissenting local, the
split in the Texas party is due to
dissatisfaction with the manage-
ment of its state affairs.
Said Mr. ^Howard: “Texas is
the only state in the union whose
Socialist party has no State ex-
ecutive committee. Here our af-
fairs are entirely in the hands of
the state secretary, T. A. Hick-
ey, our only state officer. Many
•of us are not content with his
management. It is true he was
elected by us and is subject to
reeall under certain conditions
and in certain ways, but he him-

Millions in Canal Tolls.
Washington, D. C., June 28.—
A total of $4,000,000 in tolls was
collected for the use of the Pana-
ma Canal up to Juue 6. During
April the tolls for the first time
were greater than the cost of op-
eration and maintenance of the
canal by $84,112, the total for
the month being $442,415. Op-
erations for May indicate that
the tolls for that month* will wipe
oat the previous existing deficit.
These calculations do not take
into account interest on the capi-
tal invested in the canal.
Lake of Wine Burns.
Fresno, Cal., June 25.—The
main winery and storehouse of
the Barton Vineyard Company,
together with 700,000 gallons of
wine, were destroyed by fire to-
day. The loss is estimated at
half a million dollars. The burn-
ing wine spread out in a, lake of
