te a discussion of arrangements for
securiBg a loan of three and a half
million dollars which it is declared
jsast be had In order to save the Ori-a-trail'read
from suspension of opcr-

tives o a namber of Texas Oklahoma

case hefore the Interstate Commerce
I Coamlekmwhich has granted a hear-
iag fee Jane 1st; and every effort will
he maae to iadace the Commission to
grant the reaaested loan.
The Orleat was operated at. an

fact giace .the hegianlag of its service
hae heaa in coaataat laaacial difficul-

to secare the three and a half 'tail-

Jt occars to the Balletin is the jprln-
cipal anestkm for the Interstate Com-

of cattle and supplies and while it Is
an open question as to whether the
fraflaing ef the road was jastified in
the Irst place it can not "be denied
that its hailding was the immediate
)jcase of the investmeat of large sums
.of -nteaey in farm and ranch proper-
l.ties. which can be jnade profitable
throagh the marketing of their pro-
ducts over the Orient and which
would be exceedingly unprofitable
if transportation facilities were
'taken away from them. It is upon
the .owners of these farm .and ranch.
properties that the heaviest loss will

pKaESEIStATE-S investigation of pre-
;i conyeHtion presidential campaign
expenditures is developing some start-
ling information as o the manner in
which enorWusxfuhds are helng used
by varidus candidates for the jiom-"
Inations. of did twp."SreaV parties. Tes-
timcny so p far- developed shows if 11
shows anything att all tliat there Is
practically no limit to the amount ol
money that any of the more active
candidates can command for campaign
purposes; and this testimonyjis given
unblushirigly by campaign managers'
for the various candidates.
The testimony of "William. Proctor'
General Wood's campaign manager.
a million dollars has already been
spqnt in the interest of the Army
man's candidacy; the campaign man--
ager himself having advanced slightly
more than half a million dollars for
campaign purposes with little or no
hope of ever receiving any ofi It back.
Indeed Mr. Proctor declared! that he
considered contributions to Wood
campaign just as patriotic as contri-
butions to the Ited Cross during the
War. Even Democratic candidates and
their campaign organizations are
spending sums of money heretofore
nnheard of in presidential campaigns;
Mr. Palmer's organization ' haying
spent approximately ?70000 and other
Democratic candidates having similar
expense accounts. We wonder where
It will all end. If it costs a million
dollars to secure the nomination and
another million to become I elected
what sort of a government I can (the
"people expect from a president elected
under snch onditions? '
The only consolation that we find
fin the situation is that the. Democrat-
ic candidates and their organizations
are spending far "less than 1 the Re-
publicans. -The former have never
had the active support of the money
bags of the country while the latter
have always been openly aTraved in
defense of big business and 'capital
If this fact can be brought ihome to
the hearts of the rahk nnd file of the
common people of the country Gen
eral Wood and his G. O. P. brethren
are going to get a great deal less than
their money's worth out of the elec
tion. And the Joke of the situation
ies In the fact that "Republican Sena
tors insisted upon the investigation.
It Vas a big piece of new& which
the Bulletin gave its readers yesterday
in announcing that the product of the
Gladys Belle wells would be refined

had been made for a pipe line to bring
the Sipe Springs oil to the refineries
here. It has required much time
much money'and endless endeavor to
get the. refinery business 4in. Brown-

basis that will permit of rapid growth;
but the time and the money! and the

PECAXS TS. POLITICS.
- One of. the acts of 4he -Texas pe'ean
growers association which ""went. into
permanent organization at Brown-
wood last week was to adopt a "reso-
lution requesting theJ state legislature
to pass suitable laws to establish two
pecan experiment .stations in Tfexas.
One of the stations they said should
be "placed in west Texas and one -in
bast Texas. Jn the locating ' .of the
stations they asked that experienced
peqah mon'be employed and not poli
ticians. " '
- The establishment of two experi-
ment stations in Texas would be ah
important step in the. development of
the pecan industry. If we expect to
make Texas the pe'ean center of thd
world we must go in for jt strong
learri all that we can about improved
methods and disseminate that knowl-
edge and demonstrate its practical ap
plication to every man who has a few
trees or who can be induced to start
an 'orchard. Tne possibilities of the
pecan industry when. we. .specialize-!
upon it as certain portions of Califor-
niahave done with their famous fruit

siauons asa oeginnmg. . . '; i v
And a'gqod program like that of the
pecan growers association should not
in any way be interfered wUh by: "pol-
itics." In a presfdentialcahipaiga or
