The niinftill in this section of
Texas Saturday night and Sunday

blessing to stock and agrioultu-
ral interests. For months the
country has been suffering from

agricultural interests as tho long
seasons in this part will enable
farmers yet to plant and mature
thoir crops. There is still ample
timo with continuod seasonable
rains for the planting of cotton
nnd corn in this part of Texas.
Tho rain from accounts receiv-
ed did not go as far south as it
was hopod. No reports were re-
ceived in tho city of rain below

Great Northern. The scope of
tho precipitation however was
wide and at placet the rainfall
was heavy. In San Antonio and

pare resolutions expressive of the
sentiments of those present on

ferent ones present presented
thoir report as follows:
Air. Chairman wo your commit-
tee beg leave to submit for your
consideration the following :
Wo the Democratic voters of
Tom Green county ' Texas in
mass meeting assombled feeling
that tho demands of an earnest
progressive and honoraple people
who are seeking homes on public
lands in West Texas should not
longer be ignored ; and viewing
with alarm the avraioo of many of
tho wealthy stockmen who by
their own fraud and the porjury
of their hirelings are rapidly get-
ting permanent control of tho
most desirable portions of tho
State lauds which should be re-
served for homes for the actual
settler thus defeating tho plain
intent and policy of the law of
this State. Be it resolved.
1st That we favor the enact-
ment at the earliest possible time
of a law putting all of tho state
free school and asylum lands on
tho market for actual settlors in
quantities not to exceed 4 sections
or 25150 acres to ono purchaser
and that all such lands shall be
subject to sale without regard to
any lease thereof. Bo it resolved
2nd That we favor tho enact-
ment of a law so plain and ex.
plicit in its provisions as to pur-
chase and settlement that pur-
chasers may secure thoir homes
without complication and endless
litigation. Be it resolved.
Hrd That we favor a provision
in tho law relating to tho sale of
public lands upon which tho les-
sees have erected permanent and
valuable improvements providing
for reasonable compensation to
the lessee for same which will bo
equitable to both tho lessee and
purchaser Be it resolved
4th That we favor stringent
laws relating to false swearing
and aflidavits in tho purchase of
public lands to the end that sales
shall be made to actual bona tide
settlers only and those who seek
to procure the lands by fraud
collusion and false swearing may
be punished. Be it resolved
5th That wo will not support
but will actually oppose the nom-
ination and olection of any candi-
date for any district state oflice
who does not openly endorse and
favor tho above resolutions and
who will not pledge himself open-
ly to endeavor to secure tho pas-
sage of a law otnbodying tho
principles herein expressed.
