TAYLOR WITHDRAWS. I
Sonora Tex. April 21 1902.
To the voters and democrats of
the 102nd District:
With some regret I make this
announcement. In submitting
my name as a candidaio for rep-
resentative I did so with the un-
derstanding thut my views and
the policy adopted would har-
monize with tho voters of the
District; but since my announce-
ment I find that many of my
friends and voters of the district
hold different opinions on the
laud question from those I be-
lieve to be the best for our coun-
try and I could not accept the
nomination upon what I boliovo
to do tne wrong policy tor our
district to adopt. In doing so
would not only sacrifice my prin
ciples out wouiu array menus
against friends and placed in an
attitude thut I could not acquit
mysolf in a way that would do
justice to myself and bo Butisfuc-
tory to my friends.. The mooting
of the next legislature will bo ono
of great importance to West Tox-
us and should extreme measures
bo adopted as many of our poo-
plo uro advocating it will greatly
impede the progress and develop-
ment of this country. This is a
matter that every votor in this
district should look well to.
I believe the time bus come
and the domauds uro so greut that
the absolute lease line will bo
ubolishod unci the school binds
put on the market for homes.
Tho ranchmen who have those
lands leased and improved should
nnvo tine notico ana time to give
the land up and to prevent their
ruin on many instances and great
loss to all I think or should
have a law giving an assignee of
leased property who is a bona
fide resident in good faith a
prior right to four sections of his
lease hold and that a sufficient
oath l)e required with suflicient
punishment for violating that
oath that would be us binding
and prohibiting as our statutes
are against other violations of the
law. This would enable our
large ranchmen to dispose of
their lease holds and give many
homes to those that need them.
To abolish the quarantine line
would increase our troublo. It
can be regulated on a more equi-
ble manner. This is my sincere
opinion of these questions and if
it were not as above stated and
my professional and business
duties making so grunt demands
for my time I would have been
glad to have continued the race.
And will say to my friends while
our chances for success are flut-
tering I hope you will ugree with
mo that this is a wise stop for
my future welfare. I want to
thank my many friends of the
district for tho willing support
they have given me ut nil times
and that I may in tho future be
ablo to servo you in some way
and that you will find mo on all
occasions ready to rally to your
assistance either in private or

He Had To Do It.
Washington April 19. Mark
Hanna has deposited $100000 in
government bonds with a Phila-
delphia trust company to secure
the release of his friend Major
Estes G. Rathbone from a Cuban
Tho senator asked nobody to
help him. He made no show
about it. He simply went to his
own strongbox took out .$100000
worth of United States bonds and
handed them over to this trust
company us a guarantee that Rath-
bone would not leave Cuba while
his appeal for a new trial is pend-
ing. Thore are fow instuuees in the
history of politics in this country
where one man bus gone so fur for
another man. Very few persons
doubt thut Rathbone was mixed
up in the Cuban postal frauds
which brought such a scandal on
the first McKinloy administration.
Hanna insists that Rathbone is
an honest man. He says so on
every occasion. He backs his argu-
ment with the claim that if Rath-
bone had a dishonest hair in his
head he would long ngo have been
Rathbone was at the head of
tho postoffico inspectors when tho
Louisiuna lottery was routed out
of Now Orleans. He did all the
work that sent that organization
to Honduras and made it necessa-
ry for it to advertise under the
guiso of nu ice machine factory.
Hanna's argument is that if
Rathbone had any dishonest
blood in him he would have realiz-
ed on it then and there. He
could have had a million dollars
for letting up. But he was re-
morseless. There wasn't enough
monoy in New Orleans to bribe
him. Then again says Hanna
Rathbone has been a thief-taker
all his life. He knows the conse-
quences. Hannu has worked hard to get
Rathbone out of jail. He helped
him while he was waiting for trial
thinking he says thut Rathbone
would be proven innocent. He
thinks the trial wu9 a farce and
he bus secured from the president
a promise to review the evidence J
u transcript of which will soon
arrive. If this does not avail
Senator Hanna has said he will
do what he can to get a pardon
fo'r Rathbone from President Pal-
mu. Ho will not cease his efforts
until the lust stone lias been turn-
ed. There are certain people in
Washington who reniomber a let-
ter that cume from Havana from
Rathbone soon after his arrest tor
complicity in the frauds for which
Neely was first arrested. In that
letter Rathbone protested his
innocence and demanded help.
"If I am deserted" he wrote
"I will pull down the columns of
What did that mean?
On February 28 1899 Chand-
ler from the committee on privil-
eges and elections submitted a
report the title of which was "On
tho charges of bribery in tho elec-
tion of M. A. Hanna to the sen-
ate of tho United States."
The report was printed and al-
lowed to lay on the table. It in-
cluded a report from the commit-
tee of the Ohio State senate ap-
pointed to investigate the same
charges and a minority report
from the senate committee on
privileges and elections signed by
Senators Turley Pottus and Caf-
Senator Chandler's report said
it waB not necessary to go on
with the investigation. Tho mi-
nority report insisted it was nec-
essary provided tho senate hud a
proper rognrd for its own roputn-
ion. Tho Ohio Sonato report
had some statements and conclu-
sions that are interesting at this
CONCLUSIONS OF COMMITTEE.
Those conclusions or as tho
Ohio committee called thorn "tho
four main facts" adducod at tho
Ohio investigation wore :
"1. That on or about January
9 1898 an attempt was made to
bribe John C. Otis a member of
the house of representatives of
the present general assembly of
the State of Ohio to vote for
Marcus A. Hanna for United
"2. Thut Henry H. Boyce woa
the principal offender in the com-
mission of that crime.
"8. The Major E. G. Rath-
bone and Major Charles F. Dick
were agents of Marcus A. Hanna
and procured aided and abbetted
Henry H. Boyce in committing
"4. That H. H. Holleubeck
aided Henry H. Boyce in commit-
ting that crime.
The Major E. G. Rathbone
mentioned in these conclusions is
the Major E. G. Rathbone for
whom Senator Hanna has put. up
$100000 in government bonds.
The Marcus A. Hanna mentioned
is the Senator Hanna who is
standing by Major E. G. Rath
