The Excursion Yesterday
Down the Beautiful Sabine

Those who were so fortunate, and
there were nearly two hundred of

the manner in which they were enter-

having been left undone which could

Today's Houston Post outlines tbe
situation at Hempstead In part as
Though on the surface the situa-
tion In Hempstead yesterday was on?
of serene quiet, the Anal outcome is
one ot doubt.
Very few people were on the streets
during the forenoon. ^JChese were con
gregated In small bunches of half a
dozen each and their conversation was
carried on In not unusual tones. The
presence of the armed militia seemed
to dampen things. The saloons, two
of them, opened up and their doors
were wide open. The third proprietor
kept his place closed.
So long as the militia remains in
Hempstead there Is no likelihood of
any serious trouble. Just how long
Ihey will h*ve to remain Is a question.
In order to get at She real stgtus

great diversity of opinion, it is doubt-
ful then, even after these diversities of
opinion bave been sifted down to the
most conservative, point, if the real
status has been reached.
All the antis talked to by the Post's
staff correspondent, who accompanied
(the militia to Hempstead yesterday,
were unanimously of the opinion that
there would have been trouble yester-
day morning had not the presence of
the troops put a damper on the situ-
ation. it is their opinion 'that there
would have been trouble whether the
saloons had remained closed or not.
Whether the saloon men Intended
to remain closed yesterday morning
and dectded to open up after they saw
the troops Is another question. The
saloon men themselves are silent on
the subject. The pros, as a rule, do
not bellve that they would haVe at-
tempted to open up their places of
There Is still another status of the
case which gives .j-lse to the hope
that the trouble will be settled In a
few days, and that there will be no
further trouble, at least not for several
months to come.
County Judge Plnckney stated to a
small crowd of meh among whom were
Adjutant General Hulen, Major Towles
and a Post representative, that he
would take the responsibility upon his
own shoulders of settling the whole af-
fair, and the governor could flght him
if he so desired. He proposes to go
about It lq an entirely legal way.
"I will not approve their bonds when
they are presented to me," he stated.
The bond of one of the men expires
on the 16th. The bond of the other
one who remains open has been de-
clared void. Some days ago suit was
brought against him, for selling liquor
to. a minor. Judge A. J. Harvey, at-
torney for t^e pros, In looking Into
the bond of this man, made the discov-
ery that It was of no accouht. One of
the "bondsmen had been declared a
bankrupt, and another man, whose
name was on the bond, It was found,
had asked for a release some ttme

was served. However, the papers,
were distributed in the morning of
this .lay, and the mall was In the
pos i office by 1,0:'30. The order was
not served on the publisher of the pa-
per until 1:30 in the afternoon. Mr.
J. C. MeGaughy, the editor of the pa-
per, informs the Post representative
that, while he was on his way to the
po8tofflce with his mail he was told
that an injunction had been issued;
that he went on to the ppstolllce and
turned the mail over to the postmaster
and requested him to make a, note of
the time of day, which he did. There
