It looks to The Eagle like the gov-
ernor will have to appoint census
enumerators for each county In the
state In order to get all the candidates
for congressman-ai-large so their
names can get on the tickets.

It is a shining virtue to temper Justice
Roosevelt "came back."' His victory
in Ohio puts President Taft out of the
running. It will be just as Colonel
Roosevelt said there will be no com
promise candidate. Roosevelt will be
the nominee. He is now in the saddle
booted and spurred with teeth agleam
and there Is no earthly force that can
stop him. It must be admitted that
he is a wonder. He can make presi-
dents and unmake them at will. He
can ride down precedents that have
stood since Washington and the peo-
ple applaud. There are no obstacles
to Roosevelt. The life of a rough rider
on the Western plains the charge at
San Juan Hill the slaying of the
fiercest beasts In African Jungles were
to him as but a schoolboy's play. Now
he comes back Into the field of politics
and again asks the highest honor
within the gift of the people. The fed-
eral political machine said no and for
a time it looked as if the machine
would set up a wall that could not be
scaled. But they reckoned without
their host. The whole country fcoth
press and people was fooled. With
lightning-like rapidity his army was
organized and equipped. His field mar-
shals bis generals and captains were
assigned to their duties and the battle
was on. With the fury of the-war-horses
of Job they charged upon the
enemy and trampled them under the
iron hoof. Stronghold after stronghold
gave way fortifications (rumbled
walls were torn down thinner and
thinner became the ranks of the op-
position and now only a faint line can
be seen in the far distance. In Just a
few more days the foaming champing
charger of the Knight of Sagamore
Hill will sweep the lists and not a
lance will be raised aalnst him. j

ment in Byan closed this morning
with a very brilliant program at the
Colonial Theatre.. As Is always the
case with this popular school the

the exercises of closing day.
The exercises began promptly at 10
o'clock and the Invocation was given
by Rev. J. R. Finley pastor of the

Allen conducted the exercises and
stated that the subjects for thesis had
been assigned the members of the
graduating class some weeks ago and
that all of them had prepared their
addresses and orations but only four
would be permitted to speak so that
the program would not be too long.
All had done well however and those
who were not to speak Bhould jiot be
at a disadvantage because of that fact
because they were prepared and their
not appearing was only for the reason
The program as rendered was as

Diplomas were awarded to each ot
the above young gentlemen except
George T. Martin Guy L. Martin
Jesse C. Smith and J. S. Harrison.
These four young men were given
certificates and It was explained that
the reason they did not get their di-
plomas was that during the session
they hadVo do double work having
a lot of junior work to carry with
their senior course and for that rea-
son they bad fallen a fraction short of
the required average for graduation.
The work can be easily made up dur-
ing the summer and as soon as com-
pleted they will be given their di-
Following the presentation of di-
plomas Prof. J. II. Allen also present-
ed the following scholarships and

ship the highest honor of the school

Prof. R. O. Allen thanked the audi-
ence for their attendance and said
before dismissing them there was one
more7 chapter In the history of Allen
Academy of which he wished to speak.
He referred to the new three-story
brick addition that Is to be erected
this summer and told of the pleasure
It gave the principals that the people
of Bryan through their Interest and
loyalty had made it possible for this
new building to be terected. As he
spoke a large banner was raised from
a table on the stage the lights turned
on and a 'beautifully . modeled brick
structure was revealed. Prof Allen
explained that the model was the work
of Frank Gartner a former student at
the academy and now a member of
one of the strongest firms ot archi-
tects In San Antonio. This design
with others from other architects will
be submitted to the directors for final
In regard to the exercises held to-
day The Eagle wishes to congratulate
the principals and faculty and the
senior class upon the excellence of the
program rendered. It was of a very
high order indeed and would have
been a credit not only to any prepara-
tory school anywher but to most of
the larger colleges. Each young man
on the program acquitted himself
handsomely and in the excellence of
the work reflected great credit on the
Institution they represented.
Allen Academy has long been the
pride of Bryan and with its growth
and expansion as the years go by its
grip upon the people also grows and
this whole section now rejoices In its
prosperity. It Is a school of great
worth of real merit the people are
standing by it and a still greater
future Is In store for It.
