j Texas I.aiidflce Defalcation
j Austin Tex. Jan. 22. District
Attorney Burleson tiled suit for
the State to-day agafnst O.
Hollin8worthlate Receiving Clerk
in the office of R. M. Hall when
the latter was State Laud Com-
missioner and against Hollins-
worth's sureties and Hall and his
; snreties. The claim is for $12-
1 790 the amount of Hollinsworth's
defalcation to tho State and to
individuals dealing through him
and as receiver of moneys from
them intended for the State. Tho
petition alleges that Hollinsworh
upon qualifying as .Receiver in
1SS7 gave tho necessary bond of
$25000 but that when he was
again appointed in 1S8D Commis-
sioner Hall did not require a new
t)ond from him as the law pro-
vides he should have done and
that the Commissioner in failing
to make this requirement made
himself responsible together with
his sureties on his bond which
was $50000 and was conditioned
for the proper execciso of the du-
ties of his oftico as State Land
Commissioner. It is alleged that
the exhibits do not show when
tho defalcation occurred and that
an accounting is necessary to de-
termine to what amount the sev-
eral defalcations are liable.

Don't vote for a man who can
save ten thousand dollars a- year
out of a five thousand salary. If
he is shrewd enough to do that he
is probably ablo to make a living
honestly. Don't vote to re-elect
a man who for personal or party
advantage fails to stand up and bo
counted whenever called upon in
favor of the principles he advoca
ted before the people. Don't v.ote
for any man because he is entitled
to th'e position : the reason is in-
suflicient. Don't fail to vote for a
man who has made a faithful pub-
lic servant simply bi-eausc his op-
ponent is a -a good fellow and
needs the office. Don't confound
a noisy mouth with wisdom nor
rant with political integrity. Don't
forget that the be&t men in any po-
sition are men of works rather
rather than words. Dou't fail to
inform yourself and have opinions
of your own. Don't forget that
mooted questions cannot be fully
grasped by hearing or reading ar-
guments on one side only. Don't
fail to make your vote count one
at primaries or general election?.
