turned to-ui^lit from an official visit
to Bryan, whitber lie \vr,a called in

officer of lii'yu i. Mr. Adams stated in his
letter to Dr. Kutherford thnt some time ago
n sudden death occurred in Bryan and that J
I)r. Cavit, tlio attending physician, called '
the disease cerebro spinal meningitis, or
spotted lever,and tliat lieliad advised the par-
cuts to quit sending their children to school
and to use disinfectants freely, claiming
that a number of cases of spotted fever
were prevailing and nt the present time
claims to have several cases on hand. Owing
to tho excitement and general suspension
of business consequent upon these state-
ments the city council met and appointed a
committee of doctors to investigate the
matter, and that ttiey reported that only
four or five deaths hail occurred in Bryan
in thirty days, including blacks and whites.
Mr. liall, in his letter to State Health
Officer liutherford, says that in hisexperi-
cnco of twenty years as a practicing physi-
cian in Bryan ho had only observed one case '
of meningitis, and that out of the twelve
physicians in Jli yan only one of them claims
to have patients suffering from meningitis,
or spotted fever, anil that this physician
failed to invito any of the other physicians
to see such cases with him. He further
further says that these reports are detri-
mental to the commercial interests of the
city, and that, being powerless to act, he
called on Dr. Ruthciford for assistance in
his official capacity.
Tlio committee appointed by Mayor
Adams of tho city council of Bryan con-
sisted of tho following physicians: John H.
Webb, D. Port. Smith, J. S. Pugh and A.
R. Caufleld, who stato in a circular letter to
the public that after a careful examination
they have come to the conclusion that no
sickness of that character is prevalent in
Bryan, and nothing whatever of a conta-
gious nature, and that there is no cause for
The following physicians of Bryan also
state under their signature, in addition to
the statement of the committee, that thero
is no sickness of a suspicions nature in their
practice: H. I<. Fountain, Y. M. Hall James,
It. Johnson, U. B. Tabor, J. W. Johnson,
A. J. Plattner.
On receipt of the letters and circular Dr.
Rutherford visited Bryan and immediately
began a thorough investigation of affairs.
After a rigid inspection and vigilant re-
search lie failed to find any case of meningi-
tis or spotted fever, and so stated to tho
proper authorities of the city.
Tlio following i3 his official statement,
handed The Nkws correspondent by Health
Officer John Gray:

cases at Bryan, which constitute convales-
cents and acute patients, I say that in my

Austin, Tex., Octobor 22.—Candidates on
tho miscellaneous ticket are clamorous for
immediate possession of the state govern-
ment in ordor to bring the convicts inside
the penitentiary walls. The records here of
the penitentiary management have been
overhauled by the democrats to show that
this clamor is sheer nonsense. Tho governor
claims that tho convicts increase so rapidly
that iti every eight or ten years the state
penitentiaries would have to bo duplicated.
Prison investigation has developed tho fact
that, taking all tho industries which may
be pursued inside penitentiary walls
and arriving at an average of the
prison houses, cells and ma-
chinery it requires to house con-
victs safely and employ them without
loss an investment to begin with of about
$750 per capita. Texas has in penitentiary
walls in round numbers 1500 convicts. The
penitentiary buildings, grounds and
machinery have cost the state very close to
$1,350,000, wliich would make the per capita
cost of about $835 for housing anil working
the l"i00 convicts now in the walls. At this
rate it would cost tho state §1,410,500 more
to bring within the walls the 1700 convicts
now working upon farms. This would re-
quire an additional tax of nearly 30 cents on
property. By the time the room was pro-
vided for the 1700 outsiders, another big sur-
plus of convicts would require, another in-
vestment. This is .
THE CONVICT PROBLEM
that puzzles tho democrats. Their plat- <
forms always declare for keeping as many
convicts in the walls as can be made self-
supporting. They have through their gov-
ernors, Coke, Hubbaril, Roberts, Ireland
and Ross, asked every legislature to appro-
priate money to carry this policy into effect.
The legislatures have appropriated all the
profits of convict labor and very largo sums
out of the state treasury to carry this policy
into effect, but ttiey have never realized that
convicts increase more rapidly by two to
one than the provisions for their incarcera-
tion. If they have so realized the situation
they have been wanting in the nerve to im-
pose the tax necessary, which would require
a revenue nearly if not quite equal to that
required for all other government expenses,
exclusive of schools.
Colonel Goree, who has been penitentiary
superintendent about twelve years, lias bi-
ennially submitted the problem, and oi-
enially the legislature has declined to adopt
the heroic remedy. The truth is, while the
policy of tho democrats has beeu pro-
nounced, the record show that it has not
been realized, owing to the immediate rep-
resentatives of the people, who have been
fully aware that the people would not
stand the enormous tax required. But still
the records show very great progress in the
right direction, much greater iu fact than
has been appreciated.
the progress claimed.
The following table shows the progress
claimed. It must bo promised that the dem-
ocrats, when they came into power, found
the penitentiary and convicts leased and en-
tirely beyond state control. Convicts were
building railroads, cutting cordwood, mak-
ing brick and working on plantations,while
only a number were kept within tho walls
sufficient to make clothing for tho others.
The state was not in such control as to be
able to dictate any policy until in 1878, after
Governor Hubbard's resumption, which coat

The reduct.icm in tho number in the walls
iu 1880 as compared with 1884 is explained
by tile report as only temporary at the time-
the statement of the disposition of the prison
population was made. Tho capitol con-
tractor then had some 4(20 convicts em-
ployed,anu iu.thestateinont mentioned they
were included in the outside population.
They were drawn from outside and inside
to fill that contract and were to all intents
and purposes confined in the walls of prisons
strongly and safely built and guarded and
should properly have been
credited to the walls.
Tlio tablo exhibited should, to bo com-
plete, show 1500 inside and 1700 outside tho
walls this year.
In the ten years sinco 1878 the whole num-
ber of convicts has increased 87 per cent,
while tho number in tho walls has in-
creased over 300 percent. The state has ex-
pended to provide for working tho in-
creased number—T33—in tlio walls and for
other permanent improvements since 1878,
tho sum of $648,100 70 in money and a largo
sum in the way of work upon buildings,
and money for muchiuery supplied by
lessees. It is not believed tho democratic
stato officials propose to urge upon tho
legislature such appropriations for expendi-
tures to increase prison room and machin-
ery as will require an increaso of the tax
rate for that solo purpose. If Governor
Ross promised it no legislation would like-
ly help him to keep his promise.

Austin, Tex., October 23.—Attorney-gen-
oral Hogg returned to-day nnd had a con-
sultation with the governor upon the selec-

At 8.30 a. m. the board and governor had
a secret consultation and the bidders were
called in and notified that all bids were re-
jected. There was considerable dissatis-
faction and several protests. At the morn-
