FREE MAIL DELIVERY

Town Has Ample Population Office Receipts

ingExtracts From Report.
. The citizens of Brownwood have
been -wondering just why it is that
Brownwood can't get free mail deliv-
ery -when other towns not larger or
more advanced in city ways seem able
to get the service with little or no
trouble. Extracts from the report of
the inspector who last visited Brown-
wood may be of interest to our read-
ers and may serve to cure the evil that
is keeping Brownwood out of her just
rights Here follows:
"While we could not determine
definitely what the population of the
city- is we believe that the estimate of
from 7000 to SQ00 is conservative and

fice and the general conditions and

tem. "In the business section of the city
thje sidewalks are in fairly good con-
dition and within the last few months
some of the streets in this section' of
the city have been macadamized mak-
ing this part of the city insofar as
the streets and sidewalks are concern-
ed acceptable for this service. In the
residence portion of the city how-
ever not over 50 per cent of the
streets have sidewalks of any descrip-
tion; in some portions there are mod-
ern sidewalks but most of the walks
are made of loose gravel; some neigh-
borhoods have suitable walks but they
are segregated from other neighbor-
hoods where similar conditions exist
with no sidewalks at all connecting
such neighborhoods. There are no
street crossings whatever in the resi-

DALLAS TUTS IT $15000.
The Dallasltes some of them so
I am reliably informed put up fifteen
thousand dollars to -pay for traveling'
expenses and entertainment of- the
members of the legislature on the last
legislative junket. Some fanny things
were connected with this performance.
i In the first place a. mass meeting was
'held-in Dallas for the express purpose
of arranging this junket that the leg-
islators might come and see for them-
selves the fair grounds and buildings
and learn from the Dallas people the
fair association's side of the question
before final action was taken on the
anti-race track bill. Then a company
0f "business men" from Dallas went
to Austin to bear to the legislature
tne invitation of the "Great Texas ine-
denounce with indignation the very -
suggestion that this junket was for the
jUirppse of influencing legislation on
race-track gambling. Yet one of the

appear that this was. the prevalent
sentiment of the junketing solona. It.
is true that every single representa-
tive and. senator was eletced upon a
Democratic platform;-it is true that
platform demands have been. ignored
almost entirely; it is true the people
have the right" to expect Democratic
legislators to be loyal to the "platform;
it is true that many very important
matters are before both houses of the
legislature; but after the great city of
Dallas had been seen all these weighty
matters became light as feathers arid
the only thing to do was to "let Texas
alone" adjourn and go home. By the
way it is seriously funny to. see how
some of these solons praised them-
selves for going to see Dallas. They
said that they- needed the trip for
"educative purposes." - They . really
needed to see a great city. It really
seems that these men ought to have
traveled just a little before they asked
for election at' the hands of the people
of Texas and if they had never seen
Dallas or some other town as large it
might have been well to conceal their
ignorance for awhile and before they
run for office again take a few trips.
The oratory in praise of the "great
metropolis" reminds one of the effer
vescing enthusiasm of the small boj;
from the country when he attends his
first circus. But what was all this
noise for? What caused some Dallas
people toput up $15000 to pay the ex-
penses of the legislators on this junk-
et? So far as those who put up the
money were concerned the purpose
was to prevent the final passage of
the 'bill against race-track gambling.
But thanks to good Providence! the
people are' becoming aroused.' Every-
where they are speaking out What
was perhaps one of the most enthu-
siastic mass meetings ever held in Dal-
las was held a few nights ago. The
great hall was packed from wall to
wall. Bankers -merchants lawyers.
doctors teachers shop men indeed
'all classes of representative men met
the hands of the lawless element. A
wave of popular wrath Is rising". And
