Horace Chilton will no.t be the new
railroad commissioner. The governor
this morning received a letter from the
former senator at his Dallas home
positively declining the appointment
tendered him yesterday. This action
on the part of Chilton Is thought to
be due to .the heavy law practice he
is getting which brings him a much
larger income than the office of Com-

newed their activity at the capital.
