To Hon. L. S. McDowell chair-
man: We your committee ou
resolutions beg leave to report the
Whereas much public senti-
ment has been worked up in va-
rious parts of Texas by designing
politicians anil real estate specu-
lators against tho state quarantine
Whereas public meotings have
been hold by more atoni3 of the
people interested and published
to the world as an expression of
all the people directly interested
Whereas such publications are
not only misleading but calcu-
lated to exert a most evil effect
upon the great cattle interests of
Resolved that it is tho sense of
this mooting composed of the
cattlemen and businoss men of
Howard county that the state
quarantine is a public necessity
and must bo maintained for tho
protection of all interested alike.
That the maintenance of tho state
line is absolutely nooossary to
prevent the .withdrawal of the
Federal line to tho border of the
state and the consequent quaran-
tining of tho entire state by the
Federal government. That we
recognize the fact that the present
regulations work au inconvenience
upon our brothers below the lino
and in order that justice may bo
done them we unite with them in
the request that the regulations
be bo amended as to permit tho
passage of cattle across the line at
any season of the year when in-
spection reveals them to lie free
from ticks and all danger of com-
municating infoctious disease.
It is further resolved that the
Livostock Sanitary Commission of
Texas bo and is hereby requested
to uso all efforts at its command
to establish a system of disinfect-
ing Southern cattle by some me-
chanical process and after disin-
fection and inspection such cattle
lie admittod as native cattle.
Be it further resolved that dis-
infective stations be established
on tho United Statos quarantine
lino at convenient points under
tho supervision of the state and
Federal governments mid that mi
appropriation be made by the
nextatato legislature to defray
tho expense of such tests.
Bo it further resolved that we
aro unalterably opposed to any
and all efforts to place any of the
I counties now under special quar
antine by the Federal government
south of the United States quar-
antine line as wo believe that
said counties can be kept in a safe
condition by the present system
of inspection ; and that said coun-
ties are freer from infection today
than they have been for several
" Resolved further that we the
cattlemen and ranch owners of
Howard county Texas feeling i
certain of the sure and evil effects '
accruing from the presence of
ticky cattle positively will not!
permit tho passage 'of any ticky :
aim uioroiiy mtecttous cuitm
through our premises at any
season of the year. Hut we have
no objection to the moving of
non-infectious cattle at any time.
Resolved that a copy of these
resolutions be furnished the West

motion tho convention adjourn-

A. V. Cocrehatn one of San
Angolo's popular young men was
in our town a day or two last
week. It seemed to us that he
was on important business.

down to Robert Loo not long
since and came back looking
pretty tough and said if that fol-

"The man that said 'The great
American public loves to bo
buncoed' " said tho traveling
man "builded better than ho
knew. It is astonishing when
ono conies to cousidor the matter
the vast amount of good hard
currency that goes 'where the
wood bine twineth' every year
and every hour in the year
for things that aro absolutely
valueless. I don't think that
any one will gaiusay the fact that
no intelligent person regards a
fortune teller seriously yet look
at the vast number of fortune
tellers who are living iu opulence
on their spoils. Not long ago I
heard of a rather clover scheme
to separate a certain class of our
citizens from thoir money. A
concern inserted an advertisement
in newspapers and magazines
which circulate all over the coun-
try. The advertisement told of
an absolutely certain cure for
stammering or and other impedi-
ment in speech. The whole cure
only costs a dollar and tho
formular would be mailed on re-
ceipt of that amount. What do
you think the formular was?
Written on a small shoot of paper
wore tho words 'Keep your damn
mouth shut.' There are any
number of those dodges being
successfully worked daily but
one of the most bare-faced propo-
sitions I have ever heard of is an
'Advice Agency' recently started
in one of our large cities. This
concern solicits the patronage of
ai.y one who is in any dilliculty
of every conceivable nature. To
those who apply the proper advice
will be handed out to solve the
most diflioult problem provided
the fee of $5 is forthcoming.
The agency is run by an appar-
ently intelligent and honest man.
Ho is as smart as a stoid trap and
can almost convince you that his
businoss is a legitimate one.
Most people would think twice
before paying $5 for advice from
a stranger. Yet I am told that
the 'Advice Agency' is doing a
laud office businoss and every-
body connected with it is wearing

A reader of The Commoner asks
for an explanation of tho initiritivo

describe a system employed in
some foreign countries especially
Switzerland and to some extent
in this country whereby the
people call first by petition com-
pel submission of a question and
second secure by petition achanca
to vote upon a measure boforo it
becomes effective. Tho initiative-
refers to the first process and the
referendum to the second. The
system was indorsed in tho last
democratic national platform and
has been indorsed by the demo-
cratic party in a number of statin.
It has been indorsed by the popu-
list party and is advocated by
most labor organizations. The
principle of tho referendum is al-
ready recognized by tho submisson
of constitutional amendments

and other important questions
to popular vote. Tho initiative
part of the system is also provided
for on cortain questions. There
is a growing sentiment in favor
of the application of the initiative
