If Kuropeun crops fall this year
anarchy and bankruptcy will prevail
in that country. Their crops were
short lasl year and another shortage

country but they would not be able
to fluy our cotton, grain and provis-

would buy oiii grain and not buy our

If Europe produces good crops this
year It will kill the market lo- our

lie suhl ilint some months ago at
Mexln the thieves, robbers, gamblers,
I loggers, thugs and crooks mobil-
ized to curry on their trade of law-
"These outlaws opened houses of
notorious lu wlessut-ss and guarded
them by mined pickets," continued the
Governor. "I sent n secret service man
,o Investigate. H<- first made such a
report that I could not believe It, that
such conditions could exist In a civi-
lized land. So I sent another to InveatU
guto the first, and tho second made a
wot-so report than tho first.
"Uttlmvful houses wore guarded
with urined pickets, not in secret but
In the open. One place had eight men
with high-powered liflos guarding,
and ten outlaws watched over another.
At one resort drinks were served you
In the olil-fashlnned way. All the
gambling devices known tn the sport-
ing world were there.
"So I ordered Texas rungers out,
and they went with machine guns,
with Instructions to raid the place*
and pui Hu- people In tho bull pen un-
til the law could handle them. Only
two places could he raided, because
we didn't have enough rangers fpr
"The Adjutant General nnd a repre-
•lontutive of the Attorney General's
office reported the prisoners captured
by the raiding Texas rangers must
either ho turned loose or martial law
declared until they coulil be handled.
"1 replied (hat I was unwilling to
bow to gamblers and bootleggers. I
believe you people have gathered
enough Information from the news*
papers to know there was nothing elae
for me to do but declare martial lam
And tho Guard will stay there until
the territory Is swept clean."
