Mr. Chairman and Fellow Print-
ers of Texas. Away down In Bast
Texas I was born on a farm, that I
might qualify myself when I grew
up to manhood to run for office in
Texas, as you never heard of a man
running for office in this great com-
monwealth of ours unless he was
born on a farm. Well, I carried out
that native-born desire. 1 fulfilled
that ambition, and the voters liber-
ally expressed their desires, aims
and intentions in the premises, and
Ihey chose me—to remain at home.
So, knowing that I was born for
something—either weal or woe to
my country—I entered a country
printing office, and whatever 1 am
today, or ever expect to be, my
friends, I owe it to the early train-
ing In a "country prim shop."
You have elected me as your pres-
' ident, and I only desire today to
| make a few remarks on the "Busi-
ness End of a Country Printing Of-
j flee," a subject, my friends, that Is
I a broad, deep and lar-reachlng one:
| because from the business end of
| any enterprise come the meat and
bread, and when 1 talk about meat
and bread you printers from the
small towns, like myself, know what
I mean. Of course our friends from
the cities don't know what corn
bread, c\ jbage and pork means, but
1 presume, live on cakes and pies
and all good things like that. Be
that he it may, 1 am going to talk
to you today just as 1 would talk to
you were you in my office, and jus'
like I am -a country editor-printer.
We have met here for some pur-
pose and object, and I want to tell
you that If we all look to our Inter-
ests and to our families' interests
we are bound to be benefitted. The
good book tells us that he who pro-
vides not for his own household is \
worse than an infidel, and, my
friends, that is the truth. 1 do not
believe that there is a job printer
or a newspaper man in all this great
State of ours but who wants to mak
money out of his business and give
his family ail th^ luxuries possible.
If there is. who does not, I hope he
will get out of the business, and stay
out of it.
NOT A TRUST.
I want to state emphatically that
I am against trusts and combines in
any shape, form or fashion. They
are not for the best Interests of the
common people of this country, and
country editors and printers are In
that class. 1 have been told that In
some cities in Texas cert tin large
printing houses were In agreement
that you could not get work from
them unless you paid them th'>ii
prices. This I hope is true. It is
also true of the dry goods and gro-
cery men; still they are not In a sup-
posed trust. These big printing
firms, my country friends, generally
have first-class, up-to-date business
men at their head, have offices
equipped with nil the latest and
most up-to-date type and machinery,
and llgure out that It costs so much
to do business, and when a Job is
submitted to them, they figure ont
that it costs so much to do the ac-
ual work, and their profit Is so
much. What do we do as country
printers when some merchant brings
us some job work for us to do?
Why, we tell him that It will cost
so much—alawys making a very lew
price on it. What does he say?
Why, Mr. Jones or Mr. Stnlih, our
competitor down thes treet, will
print it for 75 cents les son a Job.
and what do we do? Why, we tell
him that we will print It Just as nice
and just asc heap as either Jones or
Smith, and we will cut the price
ideas with each other. By mutually
coming together and talking over
our trials, troubles and tribulations
with each other—and we Texas
printers have many—we can lighten
each other's burdens, and no doubt
greatly benefit ourselves. Better
equipped shops means be'ter prices,
and better prices means that you
can pa©- your printers more, and
you make more for yourself and
family. 1 believe in co-operation, i
believe in the proprietor co-operat-
ing with the printer, and the printer
co-operating with the proprietor
The better work the printer does,
the more you can afford to pay liiin
The nicer and cleaner work you do
for your customer, the more he is
willing to pay you for if. I will
admit that some printing offices in
Texas are getting more for their
work than they should: but there
are many that are not getting one-
half what they should not even
cost ami carriage. That is the rea-
,son that we have met here, to see
if we can't improve our business,
and for no other purpose.
Over a quarter of a century ago
the Texas Press Association was or-
ganized. I now have the honor as
well as the extreme pleasure of be-
ing the president of that great or-
ganization. When I tell you that
the press association has accom-
plished much for the upbuilding and
uplifting of the craft in this state.
1 state the simple truth. Each year
we meet in some Texas town and
exchange ideas, and tell each other
our troubles and joys, and the meet-
ings of the press have become great
and joyous occasions. We have also
edifying and entertaining papers
upon all branches of the business,
and for years I have always looked
forward for the time of the meeting
of the press association. That is
the kind of an organization the em-
ploying printers should organize
themselves lntlf- an brganzaton
I lor the betterment of (he entire
craft. I love the printing and news-
paper business, I follow and make
my living out of it. I can not con-
ceive of a business that Is more ele-
vating and uplifting. Year by year
I learn more about the business,
nnd year by year l love the business
more. Texas is only in her infancy
now has not even shed her swad-
dling clothej—and It behooves us
to Improve our every opportunity
and thus keep up with the great
progress our State is bound'to make
during the next few years, la fact,
my friends, the time has already
come In Texas, if a printer or news-
paper man is not a business man
and does not use bukiness principles
in the management of his office, he
can not succeed. So, it's up to us.
Nothing succedds like snccess. There
are as much brains, and I well
know there is more energy, used in
the printing business that almost
any fiilsiness "on e/trth. Then why
can not we succeed and make mon-
ey? We cau.
or season for the every advance-
emnt of the entire craft.
I have spoken to you lonK enough.
My heart Is in this work. 1 want to
see Texas, my native state—a state
which was carved out of the wilder-
ness by our forefathers, and made
famous by the spilling of the blood
of our martyrs, of Fannin and Trav-
is at Goliad, and Crockett and Bowie
at the Alamo—-the greatest and
grandest state iu the galaxy of
slates. My friends, it can be done,
and it is up to us to do it. Will we
;do It, or will we let the opportunity
i pass? I say, do It.

Annoying Habit Encountered at So-
da Fountain and Elsewhere.
"One of the most annoying hub
its that we encounter" suid a popular
dispenser at one of McKlnney's lead-
ing soda fountains, "is that of mnny
people who will wait until the dis-
penser Is busy waiting on another
customer and then begin knocking
on the counter with thei, money
and keep it up until the coin is tak-
en. It often happens that a person
will come in, have the money in his
hand all the while he is drinking his
soda and just as the dispenser gets
busy with another patron he begins
knocking on the counter with his
money and keeps it up. It is a habit
that is very annoying to say the
• • • «
Not III interest of Big Shop.
Let sis not get the idea into our
heads that this movement Is Inau-
gurated in the interest of the big
printing houses in the cities. It is
not. They do not work one-half as
cheaply as we country printers.
They use business sagacity, and
have tirst-class, up-to-date offices
They don't cut the prices, but if they
can't get the work nnd make some-
down. thus knocking off 'nil our thing out. of it why they let it alone
profit, Just because Jones or Smith I Whenever I solicit Job printing I
always tell my local merchants that
if they will pay me as much as the
city offices and they do the work
reasonable—I will be more than sat-
isfied And when I get them to do
It I always make about 33 Vi per
cent more than my regular price.
So much for co-operation. That Is
Just exactly what I want to see us
employing printers of Texas do- co-
operate with each oiher nnd make
something out of onr business. Don't
be afraid of the big printing houses
In the cities—they have to get some-
thing for their work or they can't
run. It. has never been my desire to
do cheap work. I'm no cheap man.
I don't believe in cheap things. The
business men and people of Texas
don't believe in and patronize cheap
things, and the cheap- cut-throat-
printer has, or will, be forced to re-
tire from business in the Lone Star
State This is a day of business
push nnd progress, and, my friends,
let ns all work—in season and out
said they would do It, and some-
times when we come across .iones
or Smith we le "*n that they have
never In their whole life been ask-
ed n single word about said printing
This Is where the said merchant
warks ns for a Rieat big sucker—
because we don't know or look after
our business. Now, friends, these
• • • • *
Should Talk Over Our Troubles,
What we want is better equipped
shops, and better business men at
the head or the country printing of-
fices. Love and respect your busi-
ness, and the public will respect
you nnd your affairs. We have s
grea' State and a great people, and
I d-i not believe that there is a mora
ent'-nrtslng set of business men in
all Texas today than the printers
an J newspaper men of Texas, but
we are not looking after our busi-
ness like we should. In co-ope ra-

Mr. Siricklmid's Statement.
j Relative to the construction of the
j interurban line from Dallas to Sher-
> man, J. F. Strickland said: "It is
'a fact that the terms of the contract
have been agreed upon, the work
has been awarded and within a day
or two the papers will be signed,
which will mean that within thirty
days Suderman & Dolson, contract-
ors. of Galveston, are to begin the
actual construction of the electric
line. The terms of the agreement
are to the effect that the line shall
lie complete and in operation by
.fsn. 1908, The reason ror the long
tire is that it is difficult to get the
materials for the tracks and for the
stations from the rolling mills. We
expect to be in actual operation
long before that time, but It Is beet
to be on the safe side.
"Next week the Texas Traction
Company is to be chartered at Aus-
tin with a capital stock of $3,000,-
000. it is expected that the con-
struction of the road and the acqui-
sition of the rolling stock will take
at least two-thirds of that amount..
Among the Incorporators are the
following: John S. Heard of Mc-
Klnney, .), l. White, cashier of the
Collin Colntv National bank of Mc-
Klnney, F. F. Dumas, cashier of ahe
Van Alstyne National Bank; George
W. Bowman, president of the Piano
National Bank; Ed M. House, Aus-
tin: Capt. William H. Bean, Howe;
J. F. Strickland, Dallas; W. R.
Brents, president Commercial Na-
tional Bank, Sherman: W. T. Eu-
bank. vice president Merchants' and
Traders' Bank, Sherman; M. B.
Pitts, president Grayson County Na-
toinal Bank, Sherman.

Sixty Miles in Length.
"The line is to be sixty miles long.
McKlnney is to be the power station
and the location of the shops. There
will be two substations on each side
of McKlnney, rour in nM. These
have not yet been determined.
"It Is not certain how the line
will enter Dallas, whether over Mc-
Klnney avenue or Bryan street or
some other way. At any rate, it is
to be on Commerce street east or the
library, and will proceed westward
on that street as far as Austin. It
Is not determined where the Inter-
urban station is to be. The service
will call for a car leaving each end
of the line on the even hour. The
schedule calls for a run to Sherman
in two hours and thirty minutes.
"General offices are to be In Dal-
las. At present they will be at the
offices on Main street. In time there
will be needed, and It is expected
that a building for the railway on its
own grounds will provide for the
administration departments of the
road service and regulation. There
will be large terminal facilities In
Dallas and of course roundhouse fa-
cilities will be necessary.
"The company Is made up of a
large number of the leading financial
nnd business men of the northern
part of the State and some others.
We shall go Immediately to work
and have the line In operation in ns
short a time as possible."
