HIS SiEI DONE ENOUGH?
rOINDEXTER MEN SEEM
THINK HE HAS NOT.
OFFICIAL RECORD IS GOOD BEE OPENS HIS CAMPAIGN
J. T. Robison, Commissioner of Gen-
eral Land Office, Spends Day in
City—Is Confident of Re-election.
Conference Will He Held at Dallas
Monday, at Which Time It Wiil Be
Ursed That Bailey Take Stump
Actively for Cleburne Man.
Another Poindexter-Bailey conference
will be held la Dallas Monday. At tbat
time it will be definitely decided whether
or not United Stutes Senator Bailey will
take the stump for Poindexter.
William Poindexter will upend today
with Bailey in Dallas and the two will
confer. Monday the Poindexter leaders
from all over tlie Stute will gather in
Dallas, and Bailey will meet with then*.
It Is understood that the second con-
ference is to be held because the result
of the previous one was unsatisfactory.
While It is true that Bailey has endorsed j
Poindexter he had done this previously
and the Poindexter supporters say that
has added nothing t" Poindexter 8
strength and, unless something more mili-
tant is done, many of them think that j
Colquitt will profit as much l>y what has .
already been done as will Poindexter.
They claim that Bailey must enter ac-
tively into the campaign If the idea is to be
removed from the mind of the public that
Bailey is supporting Poindexter only Ins-
cause he is a personal friend and that the
United States Senator would really as
soon see Colquitt landed iu the capital
At; the conference Monday the friends
of Poindexter will urge that Bailey get I
into the campaign actively and that he j
stump the State for their fuvorltc. They
believe if Bailey will do this it will insure j
the election of Poindexter.
A number of the San Antonio support-
ers of Poindexter have been invited to the
conference Monday, but ir is not probable
that any from here will attend.

Commissioner J. T. Robison of the Gen-
eral Land Office, serving his first term
aud askiug re-eleetiun, was iu San Antonio
Saturday afternoon betweeu trains. Mr.
ltobisou was returning to the capital from
Kerrvilie, where he hud gone to determine
whether a particular tract of land Is sub-
ject to wale or not
Mr. Kobison is little concerned for suc-
cess over his two opponents. Durlug his
eighteen months in office he has distin-
guished bis administration from former ad-
ministrations Of the General Laud Office
by the manner in which he has system
atized the work.
I'he highest average sale of public lands
r>,000,016 acres marks his first term to
date. The sale of this total acreage
brought to the Stale $11,477,234. New bus!
ness entirely for his department in pay-
ments on laud, in a period of ten mouths,
aggregates $-,515,1)10. The State laud ac-
counts now approximate $,V»,tnH),0t*>. By
the operation of a law written by Mr
Kobison. enacted and in force, the (ieneral
Land Office is being conducted at a re
duced expense to the State of on
the two-years term.
In other words, Mr. Robison's slogan as
commissioner is, "The General Land Of-
fice, a Business Institution." The forego-
ing figures stand out startlingly, and tell
Mr. ltobison's campaign story for him.
The fact is, he is not waging a campaign.
When he is on the road lie does not hesi-
tate to announce that he i< seeking re-
election, but lie is not conducting a "run-
ning for office and holding one too'' cam
paign. He is making no speeches and ex-
pects to hug his desk.
"The laws written by me regulating
sales and payments on lauds and the re-
organization of the General Land office
under my first administration, have large*
ly increased the sob ool fund, improved
the public service and reduced expenses, '
said Mr. Robison last night. "The ificage
sold and the amount of money obtained
for Jand during my administration show
the greatest volume of business in the
history of the Land office. The increased
value to the school fund under the present
laws Is about M.".noo.(nw>.
"Although i he v rk in the Land Office
has greatly Jnciv.ised, yet. under the re-
organised system the number of^ employes
has been so reduced that the cost "f the
same service is n \v $'29,300 less than it
was for the preceding two year*:."
Mr. Kobison shows that under the pres-
ent system of handling interest pavments
through his department money is available

EL PASO MAN IS CANDIDATE
Major Lapowski Wants to Be Adjutant
General of Texas.
At the request of many of the higher
officers of the National Guard of the
State and of many prominent citizens,
Major Lapowski of this city has started
an active campaign for appointment to
the office of Adjutant General of the
State of Texas.
Major Lapowski has been an active I
member of the Texas National Guard I
since 1&S5, commissioned as a second lieu-
tenant In Company JJ, Fourth Texas Vol-
unteers, Colonel Huston commanding, lie ,
was later appointed battalion adjutant in j
the same regiment. Upon removing to
San Angelo he was elected captain of j
Company A, Sixth Regiment, Texas Vol- ]
unteer Guards, and later upon his re-
moval to Gainesville was elected captain
of Company C of the same regiment.
When the Spanish War broke out he
took the fii id as captain of Company C» ,
Third Texas Cnited States Volunteers, j
and s.'ivs a (Live service with that regiment }
for twelve months to the close of the
war When the guard was reorganized !
on November 112. 1*99, he was elected j
major, Fourth infantry, Texas National 1
Guard, in which capacity he is still serv- I
lug. Major Lapowski came to K1 Paso in ,
1901, when he embarked in business here,
and is today one of the principal mer-
chants of £21 Paso.
Major Lapowski has always been con-
sidered an officer of unusual ability not
only by brother officers of the National
Guard but also by officers of the regular
army detailed by the War Department as
Inspectors and instructors at various
camps and joint maneuvers held in the

ways having the Interests of the State
Guard at heart and ever active and elert
to further its welfare and its efficiency.
The vital need of a thoroughly informed
military man in charge of the Adjutant
General's offlfce at Austin is considered
very essential by the National Guards-
men of the State nt this time, when the
National Guard is on the same footing
as the regular army organization.—El

LOCA1, SE L.K-GOVEHNMENT.
"Local self-government Is the only safe
and true governmental doctrine, and the
only one conducive to peace and har-
mony. 1 favor the doctrine of local op-
tion as strongly as 1 oppose tlie doctrine
of State-wide prohibition, and if honored
l ;. your dcctlon 1 shall use my best en-
deavor In favor of the one and in opposi-
tion to the other. It is not only with
reference to local option that the doc-
trine of local self-government is applied,
but in all other legislative matters.
"For instance, if a bill prohibiting fish-
ing or hunting at a certain period of the
year is introduced, it Is no unusual thing
to find numerous counties exempted from
its operation. Why is this? Because the
people of the respective counties under
the fundamental doctrine of local self-
government. exercise the right to regu-

other district. 1 declare to you that in
obeying the command of my district 1 am
standing upon the long-built platforms of
the Democ ratic party in the days of Its
glory and its strength.
"A l tilled States Senator is first a Sen-
ator from Texas and then a Senator for
the Nation at large. Similarly a Senator
from the Twenty-fourth Senatorial Dis-
trict is first tin Senator for tin* counties
composing the Senatorial district and
then for the State at large. Let me sub-
mit a proposition to my friends who claim
that a majt nty of a party—not a major-
ity of all the people—has a right to in-
struct a Leglsiature.
"The Constitution provides that no pro-
posed amendment to the Constitution .
shall be submitted to the people to be
voted upon, unless submitted by a vote i
ot two-thirds of all the members of botn •'
houses. Mark you, not two-thirds of those1!
present, but two-thirds of all the elected
members. It i*urther provides that after
two-thirds of tne Legislature has submit-
ted the question a majority of all the
votes cast may adopt the amendment.
Where is the provision that authorizes a
majority to instruct the two-thirds of tlie
legislature 7 And where, also, is the
authority of the majority of a political
party to instruct a Legislature?
"If it had been intended that the entire
State could Instruct a State Senator there
would have been no Senatorial districts,
but the thirty-one Senators would have
been elected at large. I believe in abso-
lute acquiescence in the will of the major-
ity in all governmental subdivisions. The
people of this district have heretofore in-
structed their Senator to vote against the
submission of the prohibition amendment.
Until they reverse that Instruction 1 shall
vote against submission.
"I regret the Injection of th#» prohibition
question into State politics, for It is a
moral, and not a political, question, and
have only devoted so much attention to
n because it has been made paramount
and no n an is worthy of the votes of bis
rejiow men who does not frankly state
ins views on public questions.
"There are other Important questions

and the conscientious endeavors of their
representatives, if elected your Senator
