An old Texan's Opinion of our Fine
Country. Interesting Statistics.
After a few introductory
marks the speaker alluded to
present assemblage composed
beautiful women and stalwajt men
in the prime of life and the
gray haired pioneers of Texas
the older and later citizens of the
State blending and vjeing in harmony
in the effort td advance the. prosper-
ity of their section and state of the
magnificent exhibits of the taste and
.handiwork of the ladies and the pro-
ducts of the soil. Only a few years
since the first dwelling was erected and
thte first-furrow turned in this and ad-
joining counties and yet we find an
exhibition in all the concerns of domes-
tic life showing an industry a refiner
ment taste and skill of what the old
est and most advaitcfcd "sections of the
state might well be proud; anda pro
soil: and -improved-.that
would tfuf to
shame older and more favored parts
of the country with articles of every
day use that strike the eye in this

The territory comprising tltcsc cotitl
ties nnd nil tlic country west of them
was anunt'plorcd wilderness and the
homcW Uic rcd man. '" He had
shared the mardslifps and toil of the
carlypionecrs of the country the men
and women who through scenes of
blood had blazed their way and made
the present prosperity and civilization
possible and lie had always had faith
in'iJlpasttohr future of .this part
of fcxa?. In 1877 in congress
whiU?in advoJc of the Tcjtas and
Pacific railroad-mcasure he. had de-
scribed the counties bordering on the
proposed line of road nnd then snid:
"Andstill first q provc Uiat the in-
vestments for the construction of'these
lines would be a profitable oncj andi
tliattlie covemment Would be" se-
CiiredJ' I mention the fact that thirty-
three counties in the State or Texas

Grande north to the Kansas boun-
dary w.ou1d be almost entirely depend-
ant on the Texas and Pacific and the
.Vinita ..branch for commercial facili
It is Worthy of consideration
these thirty-three counties are
among the most inviting for settle-
ment and production of any in our
.whole State. It is not going .beyond
the truth to assert that for beauty ol
scenery of mountain hill and dale
'crystal flowing waters beautiful val
leys and broad rolling plains the coun-
ty alluded to has no superior on this
continent. It is within the bounds of
truth to say that two-thirds of the soil
is of the richest and most productive
character easily brought into cultiva-
tion and which if not properly culti-
vated in cotton with an average yield
of one-half bile to the acre would
produce 6336000 bales per annum
being 1336000 bales more than the
entire crop of the United States for
the years" 1877-76 or 'if the same
ambunt of land was cultivated in
Wheat with an average of 15 bushels
per acre a moderate estimate for that
region we should have the enormous
amount of 100080000 bushels per
annum which at the rate of 350 bush-
to the car and 20 cars to the tram
and 24 trains a day would require
1130 days and nights to transport
'the crppof a4singleyear to market or
if cultivated in cotton alone mak-
ing the same calculation of the
number of cars to the tram and one
train for every hour of the day and
night it would require 324 days to
move such a crop to market. In
other words it would require three years
to move one season's .wheat crop and
nearly one year to move the cotton
crop. When the Indians cease to
depredate in that section it will be in-
deed what it is fast becoming the great
beef producing region of the continent.
In speaking of the capacity of the 33
counties alluded to and of he western
part of the State for the production of
beef the speaker continued: "This
sir is no fanciful picture; to make it a
reality rall that is requisite is such a
population as the country described can
easily support and the means of trans
portation for its products."
The assemblage and exhibition here
to-day verify the truth of the picture
I have drawn . 1 he governor then
spoke to-the farmers some words of
advice' in regard to the borrowing of
money and the mortgaging o( their1
crops and farms and in this connection
stated that one'dollardoaned for 100
years at the following rates of interest
and compounded annually will amount
to the following sums at the end of
Jhetime viz: At 3 per cent. $19.25;
at 6 percent. $340; at 8 per cent.
$2203; at 10 per cent. $3809; at 12
recent. $5075: -at 18 cent.
$15145307; ai 34-per cent. 2551-
799304." He then admonished them
.thatJn'Jiis judgment there could be
no greater folly on their part than to
JjorioyV Jpoijcy aRd mortgage their
labor and homes to pay the sam?. that
itjWoufclh$ far-.better; .to work with
srfl&l'meari$abd rcqimuilat;? by de-
grees than to resort to borrowing. He
then alluded to what he conceived to
be a great error with many farmers in
attempting to(put ja large' ffarras and
the'cpjtjlvation oft more"ground tliajj
their force would enable them to cul-
tivate thoroughly TJiat every farmer
should raise on his farm everything
needed for his own support as fat as
possible t His crops should Le diver-
sified. ' He should raise his own pork
beef and mutton and no more cotton
than his own'forw can save nnd to
show the capacity of Taylor "'county
(he had prepared some figures -which
he trtoiight worthy of their attention.
This county contains 575oooacrcsol
land one-fourth of this' cultivated In
cotton nt a hall bale to the acic
would produce 72000 bales of cotton.
This at $50 per bale would make $1-
800000. One-fourth cdltivatell iH
wheat at 15 bushels per acre-would
make 2r6oooo bUshelsat 75 cents
.per bushel would be $i5si 4000 One-
eighth of the whole cultiv.-ttcdv in corn
'at 30 bushels to the acre at 2ocents
per bushel would make $43200 And
one-eighth in oats at 50 bushels- per
acre .and 20 cents. a busHeLwtuld
'make $720000. T'his would leave one
fourth for gardens for vegetables
fruits and pasturage. It is estimated
that the cattle horSes mules and'mut-
tons would " make $1500000 more;
that the hay fruit and vegetables' and
wool would .make another $1506000
and the increase in the value 'Ofrgrain
turned into flower and fed to" stock
would make $1000000 more-making
the value amount to$io266ooojj1one-
thinLoftliis deducted ;for 'home con-
sumption chd home use leaves $6884-
000 for exportation. The dataappli-
cable to this county applies with equal
force to the" four or mje' surrounding
cpunties.r With such a trade and
comm6rcet Abilene would dp" an im-
mense business of $50000000 This
picture may seem too sanguine and
overdrawn but the marvelous prog-
gress and development of some of
the counties east ofthisw'thjno greater
fertility of soil and resources induces
be ahaine'd by "this find Surrdiin'ding
countiescin the riexfquarter Of rf cen-
tury. In thjsAconnectioa it .may. Je
well to allude to the first annual re-
port of the commissioner of agricul
ture of this state which was for the
year 1887 but not published. until.
this year. 'The severcdrouth of;i8S7
and the preceding year make this but
a poor report of the actual production
of the state. This report includes all
the products of the dairy farm and
garden wool hides cattle; horses and
mules lumfcer aud shingles cotton'and
cottonseed 'oil 'products the whole
amounting to $137000000. The
speaker ventured the prediction that
in the report of 1889 the total
Would be $2oooooooo.There was one
great drawback to the agricultural in-
terests of the country and while he
would not wish to be considered as
obtruding political questions on an
occasion like the present he felt it to
be a duty to present to the considera-
tion of the people that action of the
general government that militates
against the great agricultural interest
of the nation and which promotes the
interests of a favored class. ' One of
the political parties of the present
day claims that from 1847 to 1861
which was under low tariff was a free
trade period. The tariff of 1857 re-
duced the duties on foreign imports to
an average of about 20 per cent and
the tariff act of 1861 raised it to about'
45 per cent arrd-acts-eince then to an
average of about 47 per cent Bearing
these figures in. mind it is -easy to de-i
termine the effect of these laws upon
the agricultural and manufacturing in-
terests. The speaker quoted from a
speech delivered by him in congress
in 1887. Beginning in 1850 and pro-
ceedingunder a just system pf revenue
laws until i860 tlie value.of farms ad-
vanced from $3423163064 to $6-
89163576 and on livestock for a
like period advanced from $544180.-
586 to $1089324915 being ah in
crease of roo per cent. From i86p
to 1870 under a vicious tariff law the
value ol farms' advanced to $95"99-
683200 and tho value of live stock
to $1525276543 and the value of
products reported for the first time irr
the census 4!t447iS386S8- This de
cade wi.tpessed a reduction in the rela
tivc advance in the value of food
farm and live stock as contrasted with
the previous ten years' of at least 60
per cent the increase in 1870 in each
case being only 40 per cent of the
value of i860. From i860 to 18.70
we find farms wortji $10709966634
being 9 per cent increase only over
their value of ten years before and
find live stock worth $15003487
being less by nearly $25000000 than
tho value of 170 and" the value pf
products is found to be $2212540-
927 being less than the product of
1870 by more than -$230000000.
Contest the decay and depression of
the agricultural interests of The coUn
try asicxhibitcd byihesc figu?es with
thgtadvancc ahd growth of tflaniifac
turcs of the" samepenbd In 1885
there were 12302 manufacturing es-
tablishments with a capital of $533-
34Si3S7ja'nda Product of$iiio9i.op-
6r6. In 1886 there were 253852
establishments wftli a capital of $2.
709273606 and a product of $5-
3957M0. Over the four decades
and especially since i860 interests
have constantly prospered have in-
creased in number capital and value
of products In 1885 -the value of
products exceeded the capital (nearly
ioo per cent. In i860 the value of
products oyer .capital was more than
100 per cent and has increased in the
same ratio n 1870 and x88d. This
good fortune to .the manufacturing
lords was ndtan accident; but a specific
result of class legislation. They did
not earn it but it was given them With-
out. This is the result of an unnat-
ural condition of things and is abnor-
mal and cannot be maintained except
by injustice and oppression.
The speaker concluded his remarks
on this rjuestion by saying that all that
were needed to make the agricultural
interests of the country prosperous
were just and equal laWs by the gen-
eral government nnd fair and liberal
laws at home. Capital and labor should
be equally protected and no one class
favored to the detriment of another.
He alluded to the Texas of long ago
its recent past its peaceful present its
grand future and appealed for the
Unity of Texas. He concluded his ad-
dress by calling attention to the con-
federate soldiers' day at the Dallas
tair and spoke in behalf of the. disabled
arid indigent soldiers of the'"confeder-
ate cause. ' '
