.*eek1os -You must. ot be having them at Bliasillle

Friday night. It has made me fOel.a little shakey
iif I happen te be ,aut a little late. Gv. xeffrs
aot of dltng away with the board of pardons at
Austin is.the latmisr pirtant thting that has been
done .in Texas.tin many a day. [t will do more to
disoourage ortime than all the laws cn the statutes
fer the onitinal with money oould buy cff the men
on the board ,cf pardons and-run free f-r more crimes.
Mxt pf the leaders f these hold-ups are pard 'ned
onmitinale and they have lost respect for the law
when they know they oan get pardoned so easily.
