GOVERNOR COLQUITT AT A. & M.
If the A. & M. College has ever had
a better friend as an executive of this
great state than the present governor
we have never noted any evidence of
it Governor Colquitt has never let an
opportunity pass to assist In the ex-
tension of this great educational insti-
tution.. Now that the . college Is in
need of urgent i action the governor
has met the emergency by prompt and
decisive action and in addition to the
action already taken is coming to the
college at this time to lend his pres-
ence in assurance of his friendliness
for the. institution. The people of
Bryan should dhow their appreciation j
of the governor's visit by turning out j
the largest crowd mat ever visuea me
college at one time. The governor will
arrive some time during the night and
will be at the college until noon. The
hour of his address Is not yet definite-
' ly known but will be bulletined In
public places late tonight.
NOT "FIRED" BUT RETIRED.
We're not going to make any hypo-j
critical pretense of regretting to see
Col. Rlenzl Johnston fired out of the j
national democratic committee. While!
we wish him well personally he' is'
not our sort and we are glad to see a
good democrat put In his place. '(

The Eagf would suggest that Col-'
onel Johnston was not "fired out ol
the committee. A national committee-
man is elected every four years and !
Colonel Johnston's time was out. His
failure of re-election certalaly could
not be classed as "fired." If he had(
been put.out during his term of office.
then he would have been "fireJ." As
it is he was retired the same as any
other officer who falls of re-election:
at the expiration of his term. There
is quite a difference between "fired" f

been recommended for the colonel's
place we are not yet prepared to
speak. He Is a "new-comer" In Texas
and will have to be tried out. We do
not know where he was imported
from but his name sounds like Kan-
sas or some other hot bed of populism.
Be that as it may the Hon. Cato Sells
had never been heard of fifty miles
from his Home town until the Wood-
row Wilson literature began to circu-
late by the ton with his name on it as
Wilson's campaign manager In Texas.
The Bryan Eagle urges a special
session of the legislature to provide
funds for replacing the main admin-
is tratlon building of A. & M. College
recently destroyed by fire. Were con-
ditions other than they are we would
heartily favor the proposition but a
session in the midst of a heated polit-
ical campaign would likely do more
barm than good. Carthage East

The latest plan of the Roosevelt

quitt Will Meet with Board
When Hon. Walton Peteet presi-
dent of the board of directors of A. &
M. College arrived at the college for
the commencement exercises Sunday
morning he announced to President
Mllner that he had been successful in
reaching the financial institutions of
Texas to the extent that he is satisfied
he will be able to finance the war
rants that have been authorized as a
deficiency by the governor to rebuild
te buildings which have been de-
stroyed by fire.
Mr. Peteet has been laboring ener-
getically on this matter and he has
been in touch with the leading bank-
ing men of Texas. He has put the
question up to them Bquarely that the
institution must have their help until
the legislature meets In Janaury next
and he Is very well pleased with the
repnonse that has come to him.
Judge Ed R. Kone commissioner of
agriculture who is a member of the
board of directors takes a strong per-
sonal Interest In the affairs of the col-
lege. He has been to see some of the
bankers find hB urged their help and
he has met with success in the matter
Ha believes that work should com-
mence within the week to replace the
buildings and feels confident that
pome wav can be found to do so.

ppnnip for the people to allow It to
suffer for buildings when bov want
to enter its doors as students." Is his

Tuesday morning Governor Colquitt;

cuss the plans. The governor is very

he proposes that no red tape shall
stand in the way if he has the official
power to have the work proceed.
