As straws show the way the
wind blows, so do events cast
their shadows before them; when
we review the acts of the late ex-
tra session of the legislature we
are forcibly impressed with the
complexion of that body in its
temper towards the executive
and his administration. Its temper
towards the commissioners: its
denunciation of the alien land law;
its. open expression against the
uniform text book bill, the trust
bill, railroad bond bill, the bill
restricting corporate land owner-
ship, local option bills, Austra-
lian ballot bi'l, bills requiring re-
striction of municipal bond and
their vote on the United States
senatorship, all indicate the ten-
dency of the majority to hold
aloof from the state administra-
tion in every contest in which it as-
sumes any appearance of personal
individuality. These facts show
the decided tendency of the people
through their represor ta lives to
wipift the lilin from their eyes, and
no longer sutler themselves hood-
winked by the oid deceptive bug-
bear story that railroads are ruin-
ing the people and that an appoint-
ed commission with imperial pow-
er of judgment absolute,Jalone can
save their iuterest from prostra-
tion. During the past two years
the writer has been directly con-
nected with immigration and col-
oni'/ation of West Texas lands and
found the complaints universal
against the unwise and injudici-
ous laws enacted under the pres-
ent administration; all of which
engendered a bitter prejudice
against the present executive.
Whether he is personally responsi-
ble or not the results are the same,
and no inginuity or argument can
prevail upon the average well-
to-do farmers, artizens and inves-
tors to leave their homes and take
up their abode iu the face of so
much adversity and general stag-
nation. At any rate the feeling
of earnest and universal anxiety
prevails; and the best solution of
the difficulties is a change of the
state administration, and the.
times all point that way.
