'1 he County Bond Validating Hill Under
Discussion Most of the Day.
Austin, Tex., March 9.—The legislature lis-
tened to the following prayer from Chaplain
Pennington this morning before tackling tho
mass of businoss on hand:
Our divino father, wo thank thee that under tho
care of t hy loving hand we Imve had another
night of sweet repose, and this beautiful morn-
ing wo aro permitted to riso with thy smiles rest-
ing upon us. Forgivo all our sins, strengthen
our faith, brighten our hopes and help us to
lean upon thy promises, trust in thoo and obey
thy command and save us with an everlasting
salvation, and w-> will ascribe all honor and giory
to thee, world without ond. Anion.
ibsue op county bonds.
On motion of Curry the houso bill provid-
ing restrictions upon the issue of county bonds
and validating bonds heretofore issued was
takon up. The bill makes a wholesale valida-
tion of bonds issuod for building court houses
and jails and for bridges and for funding
There was u minority adverse report.
Mr. Breeding supported tho minority report
and movod its adoption. He held that tho
validation of illegal bonds sot a precodent and
encouraged the issue of fraudulent bonds by
ignorant and corrupt county commissioners
in collusion with corrupt contractors.
Mr. Gossott took occasion to put in a plea for
tho administration bill which is to provide
registration of county and city bonds, wanted
to begin a new era removing at onco the clouds
from Texas securities by the validation clause.
Mr. Ball opposed any degree of repudiation
of honest county debts, but would not agree
to a sweeping validation including legal and
honest debts with fraudulent and dishonest
Mr. Henderson of Milam wanted securities
of Texas to stand untainted before tho world.
Did not believe tho bill validates fraudulent
and dishonest bond issues and only validates
such as are amenable to technical objections.
He appealed to members to stuid before tho
country as determined tor maintain the credit
The discussion hinged upon the following:
Section 8. All bonds heretofore issued by coun-
ties of this state for tho erection of courthouses
and jails and for the purpose of constructing and
buying bridges for public use- \vli«n tho bonds
have boon delivered in payment of such court-
houses, Jails and bridges, or when tho same have
beon sold to pure libera for value and tho pro-
ceeds used for such purpose am! not issued in vio-
lation of tho constitution of the stale of Texas,
are hereby validated.
Mr. Curry spoko in favor of validating tho
bonds to maintain the honor and crodit of
Texas abroad, but particularly to save the
school monoy, invested to the extent of $3,000,-
000 in county bonds.
Mr. Hawkins explained tho process of bond
issuing by the organizers of now counties
under which frauds wore perpetrated; was
disposed to favor the bill in regulating bond
issues and in validating honest issues, but op-
posed the sweeping validation of section 8.
Mr. Sherrill favored the bill, holding the
validating clause did not vgalizo bonds issued
in excess of constitutional limitations.
Mr. Breeding closed the debate on his mo-
tion, until called down by point of order.
The minority report was defeated.
Hawkins' amendment: To add after the
word constitution in section 8 the words "and
laws then in force."
Feagin of Polk believod that the laws undor
which officers act constitute thoir power of
attorney, and it is wrong to come here and
validate acts which aro in violation of the
powor of attorney. Tho act validates every
bond ever issued by a county. He wauted to
know what amount of bonds the courts have
declared fraudulent and iilogal will be valid-
ated and fastened upon tho people.
Finlay denied that all county bonds evor
issuod are validated by tho bill; only those
issued for courthouses, jails and bridges are
validated. Bonds issued to fund county debts
and bonds issuod to meet deficiencies in
county rovenues are not validated. The.,bill
provides against the issuance of bonds for
such deficiencies in future.
Breeding contended that the bonds for de-
ficiencies will be validated under section 8,
provided the proceeds wero used for erection
of court houses, jails anil bridges, though tho
bonds were issuod for deficiencies in revenuo.
He held that if constitutionally issuod they
don't need validation, and if unlawfully issued
the legislature ought not to indorse a viola-
tion of law.
Henderson of Milam contended that Hawk-
ins' amendmont would destroy section 8, for
it intends to legalize acts of county commis-
sioners not strictly in compliance with the
laws. Ho took tho ground that the only ques-
tion is, did the county pet the benefit of the
bond issues? And if the county did get tho
benefit, honosty requires tho county to pay the
bonds. The bill does not validate a fraudulent
bond. Tho attorney general had supervision
of the preparation of tho bill. The suggestion
came from his office, where, in the examina-
tion of bonds, it had been found that such leg-
islation was necessary. Ho conceded that sec-
tion 8 was tho marrow of tho bill and the rest
of it a mere shell.
Mr. Hawkins wanted to say that he has
the highest respect for the attorney gen-
eral, but if the attorney general knew the
conditions under which bonds had boon issued
in his section and still would recommend this
bill he will never bo governor of Texas by tho
votes of tho people out that way. The bill
simply validates bonds issued in violation of
law. The laws violated wero passed by a dem-
ocratic administration to protect the people.
By violation of theso laws a burden is imposed
on his people which this democratic adminis-
tration would confirm and fasten upon thoir
"I insist," ho said, "tho people of my coun-
try are entitled to some consideration from
the party now in power. I represent a county
that gave a largo majority for the regu-
lar car stable nominee. Take Martin
county, for instance, seven or eight
years ago was organized by a
little band from tho north anxious to gobble
up the people's monoy. They went to work
and issuod bonds to erect extravagant court
houses and jails in violation of law. Theso
bonds imposed a debt of $12 50 per capita
upon every man, woman and child in Martin
county. This is greatly in excess of tho cir-
culating medium per capita. Tho party that
fastens this debt upon that people will never
bo supported by them again. In the latter
campaign, when tho brass bands were playing
and tho Clark hippodrome was going over tho
country, whon county after county was in-
structing for Clark tho county I havo tho
honor to represont broke tho cloud which was
threatening the party and was tho first to in
struct for Hogg.'' [Applause.]
Mr. Peck said ho had expected to support
tho bill, but his opinions had somowhat
changed since hearing tho member from Mid-
land ; wanted further time, and movod to post-
pone until tho assignment bill is disposed of.
Feagin offered a substitute for Hawkins'
amendment: Strike out section 8 and con-
form section 9 to same. Ho contended that
as long as counties go along issuing illegal
bonds and the legislature from year to year
validates them, covering up violations of law,
the people will havo no protection, couuties
will continue to be saddled with illegal debts
and issue bonds illegally to meet revenue de-
ficiencies. The same thing exists as to state
officers. They come boforo this legislature
asking payment of debts created without war-
rant of law. If the bill proposed to validato a
specific amount of bonds issued under cir-
cumstances which appcalod to the sense of
justico cf the legislature he might favor it, but
opposed validating concealed frauds in an un-
Feagin's and Hawkins' amendments woro
defeated by a largo vote.
Mr. Fields, on a question of personal priv-
ilege explained ho had no intention of being
discourteous to the speaker yesterday.

sued in excess of $5000 unless upon unani-
mous consent of the county commissioners.
Finlay opposed the amendment and Rogan's

Smith of Hill spoko for the bill, tho prime
object of which ho stated to bo that when an

creditors who have rendered him assistance
should share alike in tho distribution of his
assets. On this idea Mr. Smith made a
lengthy speech in reply to all the arguments
made in committee and around tho lobbies
against tho bill. It was the speech of the ses-

THE SCHOOL FUND JEOPARDIZED.
That Fund Holds About $3,000,000 of
Austin, Tex., March 9.—It might bo sup-
posed that eastern bondholders aro the prin-
cipal beneficiaries of section 8 of tho validat-
ing county bond bill before the houso to-day.
To some extent they may be, but tho party
most largely interested is the stato school
fund. Private capitalists usualiy exercise or-
dinary caution at least in buying county
bonds, and it is likoly that whon they have
found after purchase that some technical re-
quirement of the law has not been obsorved in
their issuance they have been ablo to sell out
to tho state school fund. The school fund has
over $3,0OC,iHX) of county bonds, and undor a
recent decision of the supremo court of tho
United States it appears a considerable
amount of this investment is jeopardized. It
is only then a seasonable precaution upon tho
part of the custodians of that fund to look
around a littlo and provide for its safety.
When the creditor, as in this case, has the
power to remove by his own declaration the
defects in his claim, tho debtor must not ex-
pect tho ordinary rules of law and justico to
be invoked in his behalf.
The Appropriation for tho Medical Branch
of the University.
Austin, Tex., March 9.—Tho houso com-
mittee on education to-night passed upon esti-
mates for tho support of the medical depart-
ment of tho university, which had beon ro-
forred to the committee by the finance com-
mittee. A subcommittee reported to
tho main committee cutting the regents
estimate of $08,400 down one-half. In the
main committee Dashiell made a hot fight
against the cut and succeeded in adopting
tho regents estimate which will bo reported to
tho finance committee and will bo incorporated
in the general appropriation bill.
Tho houso committee on county finances
killed off several bills to-night. The finance
committee is wrostling with the gonoral do-
ficency substitute bill sent in by tho senate.
It is probable tho senate bill will be reported
without material changes to-morrow.
The house education committee also agreed
to favorably report the bill to establish a uni-
vorsity for colored youths. It appropriates
$50,000 for buildings and grounds and $25,000
for maintenance. Mr. Sherrill reserved the
right to oppose the bill as premature.

How He Operated.
A Young Prospector Grows Gloomy and
Ends His Life.
Sherman, Tex., March 9.—George Hackle,
a young man en route with a prospecting
party from Lincoln, Neb., to the Panhandle
country, committed suicide on a south-
bound Missouri, Kansas and Texas passenger
train. Last night ho lost his ticket to Sher-
man, to which piace tho party was coming, it
seemed to worry him a groat deal and his
companions took advantage of tho opportu-
nity to worry him, and although ono of them
found his ticket nothing was said about it. Ho
grow gloomy and reticent. Ho ate breakfast
in silence and resumed his seat in the coach.
Without a word he got up and went to ono of
tho closets. Scarcely had the door closed be-
hind him when a dull report was hoard and tho
party looked around in time to see the smoke
issuing out of the door. Thoy hurried to the
door, whore tho prostrate body of Hackle lay
with a pistol shot wound in his right temple
Ho was beyond tho powor of human aid and
died without speaking. Ho had in his
pocket quite a sum of money and it
is not believed that tho mere loss of tho ticket
could have affected him. He had not pre-
viously to this morningoxhibitod any evulenco
of nioroseness, iu fact had been ono of tho
jolliest members of tho party. Tho sad affair
occurred a few miles from Vinita, I. T.,
whore his body was taken off and placed in
charge of an undertaker, who will hold it until
his relatives at Lincoln, Neb., aro heard from.
Injured at a Milwaukoe Fire.
Milwaukee, Wis., March 9.—-About a dozen
persons were more or less soriously injured
this morning by a fire, which almost com-
pletely destroyed the Romadka Bros.' trunk
factory on Third street, between Cedar and
Wells streets. Nearly all tho injurod wore
firemen. Some fell from a broken ladder aud
others wero injured by falling timbers. They
are: John Kress, Albert Christine, Charles
Rafferty, Florence Donohue, Lioutenant Mus-
kow, Captain Sebastian Brand, John Gozwes-
ki, Adolph Cotton and John Radke.
Vincennes Cyclone Struck.
Indianapolis, Ind., March 8.—A Vincennos
special to the Seutinol says a damaging cy-
clono struck that town at 5 p. m. to-day aud
damaged much property. Many buildings
wero unroofed, chimneys, trees, fencos and
small buildings torn down.
Saved From tho Ocoan.
San Francisco, Cal., Mftrch 9.—The missing
boat from tho ill-fated bark Lady Lampson,
wrecked off Palmira island January 1G, and its
five occupants wero picked up February 12 by
the schooner Martha W. W. Tuft and brought
Chicago, 111., March 9.—James R. Keeno
stands to win or lose $10,000,000on the Chicago
board of trade; that, at least, is the current
gossip hero to-night and tho information is
added that, as tho deal now stands, it is a, toss
up whether ho wins or makes another huge
contribution to the experience fund charged
against Chicago wheat. Fourteen years ago
tho Chicago wheat pit took between $4,000,000
and $6,000,000 from Koene.
The story now is that, operating through
Sigmund Gruener, a stock cotton and sugar
broker of New York, Kecne has obtained con-
trol of about 2,000,000 bushels of tho best
wheat in western storehouses and accumulated
a prodigious line of futures. Tho cash end of
tho deal is in charge of "Sandy" Eggleston
and tho speculative end in charge of John
Cudahy, both masters in their specialties.
Nearly all the contract wheat in Chicago,
amounting to about 10,000,000 bushels, is
lodged with Eggleston and nearly as much
moro high grado property in St. Louis, Min^
noanolis, Duluth and other western centers is
controlled by tho samo individual.
Besides his immonso cash holding in this
city Eggleston has cornered
about all elevator space
in Chicago that can by any possibility become
available for storago of now receipts between
now and the end of March. IIo has accom-
plished this feat by contracting with the ele-
vator company to provide him room for sov-
eral million bushels of grain which ho ox-
pocts to receive between now and the end of
March. If by any chance ho should not get tho
grain tho elevator companies will not care, as
Eggleston has contracted to pay full storago
rates ou the space.
Keene laid his plans with consummate skill.
Eggleston is admittedly the most command-
ing iiguro in the cash grain market of tho
west. As for the speculative branch of the
campaign "Jack" Cudahy, the greatest spec-
ulator on 'chaugo. was just the man to run
the deal to a conclusion. In the full flush of
a successful series of bold ventures in pro-
visions, arid famous for his terrific pace in
wheat and corn, operations could bo carriod
oa under cover of his name without exciting
suspicion. Thus it has been charged for a
a month or more that
cudahy has been milking
the market. Cudahy displays a marked pref-
erence for directors in the distribution of
brokerage favors, probably because it hap-
pens that most of the directors are responsible
gentlemen and excellent brokers.
Neither Eggleston nor Cudahy aro men to
engage in operations of magnitude without
protection and plenty of money to meet overy
posmblo demand from the C(iica2p end of the-
ri;4v.' K' onc v ,lvft,o>-auprosato nave I >*en ,
least, it is said. $15,000,000 in cold cash, an I
possibly $10,000,000 moro may be required
before the deal is carried through.
There are two chances for the success of tho
deal. One is the government's estimate of tho
farmers' reserves and the other serious crop
damages. The department of agriculture will
publish an estimate of tho roserve to-morrow,
and if the figures should bo under 100,000,000
bushols speculation may spring up and iet
Keono out of his bargain. A spoil of froozing
and thawing woather might also stimulato
speculation. If tho deal cau command help
from neither of those sources Keono, in the
opinion of some, will have tho grizzly by tho
tail and will bo yelling for somebody to let
Kick at Sunday Closing.
Chicago, 111., March 8.—Another big fighfc
is likely to come up over the Sunday opening
of the world's fair. The local directors will
not accept the $570,000 appropriated by con-
gress for paying jurors of awards as a loan,
aud claim that congress in granting it as a
loan has violated tho agreement, and it is,
therefore, not incumbent unou tho local peo-
ple to observe the Sunday closing clause of the
A Rush For Divorces.
Guthrie, Ok., March 9.—Fear that tho
logislaturo would amend tho divorce laws and
make it piore difficult to securo separation has
caused a great rush of divorco cases in tho
courts hero lately. Probate Judge Lawrenco
granted six divorces yosterdayand new cases
aro being tiled daily.
