That Austin Tragedy.
What about that Austin prize fight
in which a young man received a blow
from which death resulted?
The people of Texas are recalling
that in 1895 Governor Culberson con-
voked the legislature in extraordinary
session for the single purpose of en-
acting a law making prize fights in
Texas impossible. At that time it
was proposed to hold in Dallas a
fight between Corbett and Fitzsim-
mons. The prospect of such a dis-
grace moved Governor Culberson to
act and the people indorsed the
means he employed to avert the
threatened pugilistic invasion.
And now we are told of a prize-
ring tragedy enacted under the
shadow of the Great Capitol and al-
most within earshot of the executive
mansion. And the whole affair was
in utter disregard of the statutes of
But even the killing shocking as
it was. is not more disgraceful than
the fact that State county and city
officials were there witnessing the
brutal exhibition without making an
attempt to stop it.
We are told that the beholders of
the mill were:
The sheriff of Travis county.
The county judge of Travis county.
The county clerk of Travis countv.
A deputy sheriff of Travis county.
The chief of police of Austin.
A police sergeant of Austin.
And THREE TEXAS RANGERS.
Every one of these officials knew
that the fight constituted a felony
under the statutes of Texas.
At least seven of these men were
under the highest obligations to pre-
vent the encounter or to stop it and
arrest the participants.
Bi t they sat there and saw a man
beattn to death without lifting a
hand to save his life or vindicate the
law which they had sworn to execute.
What can we say of such officers
who calmly watch the enactment of
such a tragedy? Of course had they
thought that fatal results were pos-
sible they would not have permitted
it. But they knew that the statute
prohibiting prize fights was in exis-
tence and they knew it was their
duty to prevent such encounters as
that and they didn't do it.
Tlie brave district attorney of the
Austin district has already commend-
ed himself to the regard and admira-
tion of the people of Texas by fear-
lessly discharging his duty and we do
no doubt that he will take such action
in this case as will hereafter prevent
prize fights in this State and discour-
age officers whose duty it is to pre-
vent them from countenancing such
infractions of the law. Houston
Notice is hereby given that the an- i
nual meeting of the stockholders and
directors of the Rio Grande Railroad
will be held at the General Offices of
the company in the city of Browns-'
ville Cameron county Texas on
Thursday the eighth day of July A. D.
1909 at the hour of 12 o'clock noon
for the transaction of such business
as may come before the meeting.

Xcw Regulations in Texas.
Legislation regarding train run-
ning flowed freely in Texas during
the recent regular session though
Gov. Campbell would not approve the
consolidation of the Wichita Falls
lines three lines owned by the same
interests says the Santa Fe Em
After January 1 1910 every loco-
motive must be equipped with an ash-
pan -which can be emptied or cleaned
without the necessity of any employe
going beneath the locomotive.
The anti-pass law was amended ex.
empting from its operation members
of volunteer fire departments em
ployes of express companies and em-
ployes of railways and immediate de-
pendent members of thir families.
No person shall be employed as a
locomotive engineer without having

Railways in Texas must do al! the

effect of causing the Texas roads to

posed. An act was passed to regulate the
presentation and collection of claims j
for personal services or labor ren-
dered or for material furnish-
ed or for overcharges in freigiic

jured by any railway in the state r.nd
