The fat men met yesterday at tho east gal-
lery of the Beach hotel, the coolest spot on
the island. All the members of the associa-
tion were present except Dick Flanagan, who
was finally corralled.
Colonel Russell said tho party would leave
the next morning at 7 o'clock on a special
The chairman called on Colonel Russell for
some light on the subject, and the colonel re-
sponded that he would talk to the waves in a
very short time.
Tho object of tho association, as announced
by tho chairman, Mr. W. A. Disborough, 1)04
pound*, was tho formation of a society that
would give insurance to the fat mon. He (Mr.
Disborough) said it was to be decided that
day whether they would adopt a mutual in-
surance feature in the way of a death rate, at
or whatever was decided upon. At $5
with a membership of 1XJ0 the insurance would
be $1000. W ith an average of two deaths a
year and with every additional hundred mem-
bers they could reduce the rate $1—in other
words, if they had JJ00 members the rate
would bo $4, which would make the insurance
$11X10, and so on until they had cstablinhed a
rate of say
He had talked with a life insurance agent,
who had given him the regular rates from 20
to (JO years, and it was the rule in those old
time companies to pay in proportion to the
age of the applicant. They wanted to decide
this day whether they would have a uniform
rate or base their insuranee upon the same
principles as the old time companies. Those
companies charged at tho least .'10 per cent to
haudle life insurances, but the fat men
could handle it for 1 per cent, as they did not
care to have a large stock or anything of that
sort. They would not have to give an agent
40 per cent, but each fat man would be an
agent and try and get his brother fat man into
the association, and they would give insurance
at cost. The exponses of the secretary could
be paid by a yearly assessment. Ho thought
they should visit Galveston every year and
take their annual wash, but that they should
come earlier in the season, say August 1. They
could come with their friends and stop as
long as a week. The first two days would bo
devoted to business and after that thoso who
wished to return home could do so and the re-
mainder could take a rest.
Colonel S. II. Russell said ho was in favor of
the mutual plan of life Insuranoe, as they
could not submit their members to the same
ordeal as tho old-time companies. Of course
they did not want to take any person suffering
from an organic disease into the association.
The $5 death rate would be about 1 per cent
on the insurance, a very low rato indeed.
Mr. Bteanett mm m «m in favor of the
death assessment and thought it a good idea.
The chairman said that 1 cent per pound
had been agreed upon as the initiation fees
into the association, but the dues had not been
Colonel Russell said tho dues were r>0 cents
a montlfand the grand lodge at Dallas had
power to institute other lodge*.
The chairman said he had taken it upon
himself to make Mr. R. H. Parker of'Abilene,
Mr. Stennett and Mr. McCullochhonorary vice
presidents. They could get together at their
respective homes and form lodge*.
Colonel BoSMU moved that they adopt the
plan of the mutual benofit, with a death rate
at say $5 until 200 members be reached.
He included in his resolution both the plan
and the amount. Adopted.
The chairman said the next subject would be
that of local lodges. Mr. Parker and the other
fat men present, who were not members of
tho association, from the information they ro-
ceived that morning, could tell exactly how to
set about establishing local associations in
Colonel Russell moved that upon the appli-
cation of tive fat men a charter be granted
from the grand lodgo at Dallas.
The chairman said that if the non-members
present were unablo to start clubs in their
own towns the Dallas association would make
them members if they sent their names in.
Colonel Kusscll thought his resolution should
embrace thesum of $5 for charter and ritual
Colonel Russell said it should bo determined
what kind of an examination tho applicant
should pass for admission into the association,
as they did not want any person afflicted with
consumption or dropsy.
Mr. Flanagan said there was no danger of
finding a consumptive weighing 2;>0 pounds.
Colonel Russell said the trouble could be
obviated by having the local club select a good
| physician, tho examining feos to be paid by
j the applicant.
The chairman said that the subject was
embodied in the constitution.
Mr. Flanagan moved that any person of
215 pounds weight and forty inches girth
measure bo eligible for admission into tho
The chairman said they wanted members,
and it would bo better to make the weight 200
pounds without any measurement.
Mr. McCollough said with that weight they
could get a good club in any city.
Mr. Flanagan moved that a person weighing
200 pounds lie eligible for membership.
Mr. Flanagan moved that no person under
21 years of uge or over 05 bo eligible.
Tho chairman announced that Mr. J. H.
Stewart of Dallas hud donated $10 to the club.
Ho moved that the money be accepted and a
vote of thanks tendered Mr. Stewart. Adopted.
Mr. J. M. Pearlston of Waco, a fat man,
was then presented to the club.
The chairman said he had a long letter from
Dr. Gibbsof New York explaining how to re-
duce the super 11uoub llesh of the members of
the club, but it was declared out of order and
Mr. Harry Jaques, a Galveston man, 221
pounds, said there wero a number of fat men
in Galveston, and he was surprised they had
not turned out to welcome the visitors. He
suppiscd they were not present because their
leader was sick.
Colonel Russell said ho would like to see a
fewMunplet. It" did not think there Wftfl i
fat man in Galveston, but there might be one
or two stuffed men.
The chairman said the slim men of Galves-
ton had treated them much better than the fat
men hud. fie was < -suppoiuted at not seeing
some of the fat men present. The Galves-
ton Nrwi und its three gas-pi]* reporters had
helped the club considerably, in conjuction
with The Dam.as News.
Mr. Flanagan moved that a vote of thanks
boextcuded The Galveston News und the
throe gas-pipe reporters, who had been in at-
tendance upon them. The following resolu-
tion was adopted:
Resolved, that wo, the Fat Men's associa-
tion of Texas, in convention assembled on the

getic and wholasouled general passenger agent
of the wad, that we are most grateful to him for
making our trip to the Island city, where wo
have enjoyed ourselves so thoroughly, so suc-
cessful, and that each of us, individually and
us an association, highly appreciate his kind-
Resolved, that we also thank Mr. B. K. Rob-
bins, his able assistant, for accompanying u®
on tho trip and making it in everyway enjoya-
Tho association then adjourned.
The Oyster Roa*t.
In response to an invitation extended tho
party took wagons to Tillebach's, where an
oyster roast was prepared. A jolly time was
experienced by all and quito a number of
oysters were stowed away inside the vests of
the fat men. and tho lean ones too, for that
matter. The entertainment cost the guests $2
each. The party arrived in town just in time
to catch the Santa Fe train last evening, and a
number of the fat men left for their homes.
The remainder will depart at 7 o'clock this
What are the wild waves saying, Bob Jor-
dan? The boys can answer.
Bob Jordan says that all anti-fat men are
barred out of the ussociation.
As there was no goat present yesterday it
was suggested that tho bear be used for riding.
It is ssid that one of the fat men $fot his
bathing suit on wrong side before ou Sunday
and could not change it.
Wiley Skelton was sick yesterday and the
boys say it was because he got away with their
loaded dice while on the boat sail on Sunday.
The chairman asked the secretary, Mr. W.
W. Walker, why he did not take notes at the
commencement of the proceedings, and he
replied that ho had the notes of ull the boys,
but could realize nothing on them.
Colonel Russell gave away one feature of the
secret installation ceremony. Ho says they
have a bale of cotton attached to a rope and
pulley. The candidate is stretched on the
ground and the bale is lowered upon him, and
if something does not burst they kuow his
fat is solid.
Thomas W. Jackson of Galveston, Tex.,
says the people of Texas are enthusiastic over
the success of Professor Dyrenforth's experi-
ments in dynamiting rain out of a clear sky.
If the enthusiasm grows much more in the
Loue Starcountry the people there will bo send-
ing gold medals to ex-Senator Farwell for the
aid he rendered in making tho experiments
possible. "I have received letters from friends
living where the experiments of Professor
Dyrenforth were made," said Mr. Jackson
at the Grand Pacilio yesterday, "and I tell
>ou the faiuiers and ranchmen down there
are wild over tho results. They write me
that it is only u matter of time until every
farmer will have a little hydrogen factory of
his own, aud whenever he wants tho rain of
heaven to fall on his cotton fields or garden
patch all he will have to do is to send up a
balloon carrying some dynamite to explode in
the sky. Tho farmer will not be compelled to
wait, for a thunder cloud to hover over him,
for tho rain experiments prove that water can
be drawn from a small sun cloud in a clear
sky. This new rain developer is a godsend to
the people who live in the arid regions of
Texas. They will soon have the desert regions
down there blossoming like a patch of Ameri-
con beauties. And tho best of it is. we don't
need any Elijahs to pray for rain when a dry
spell comos—just send up a few balloons
loadod with dynamite. And the artificial rain
is just like tho natural dampness from above-
it falls alike on the just and the unjust. The
meanest man in Texas can have ram by rip-
ping up the elements."
What Deep Water Will Do.
The deep harbor improvements at Galves-
ton, Tex., for which $6,200,000 has boen ap-
propriated by Uncle Sam, are progressing
rapidly, and when completed Thomas X.
Jackson, one of the officials of the Gulf, Colo*
rado and Santa Fe road, says the Gulf city
will be one of the leading ports of the United
"Two-thirds of the South and Central Amer-
ican trade will pass through Galveston when
the work on the harbor has been finished,"
said Mr. Jackson, when at tho Grand Pacific
hotel yesterday. "Already the good effects of
tho improvements havo been felt. An Amer-
loaa steamship line has been organized and
will be doing a thriving business long before
the deep harbor improvements are finished.
The railroads are also looking in the direction
of Galveston sinco the appropriation was
made, and before long tho city will be the rail-
road center of the south and southwest. The
Rock Islund intends to extend its line to Gal-
veston and othor roads will follow as soon as

HATES ARE TOO HIGH.
A Denver Merchant Talks of a Compet-
ing Line to Tide Water.
Merchants are complaining of freight rates
npd delays by way of the Gulf route, and the
subject of a competing lino to Texan tide-
water is again being agitated.
"Rates via Galveston or New Orleans and
thence by steamer to Now York or Boston
have been raised on an average 10 per cent,"
said J. T. Corn forth. "The raise wont into
effect about a month ago. There is every
reason why freights should have bceu lowered
instead of having been advanced.
"The present rates aro suicidal and unjust.
It looks as if there a systematic attempt to
wreck the road. The difference between that
route and the all-rail lino more than offsets
the difference in rates between tho two as the
ratio now stands.
"The result will bo a strong agitation for
another road. A line from tidewater to the
Rocky mountain region, which w ould be oper-
ated in sympathy with the business interests
of this section, would be one of the most
f rofltable investments in the United States,
t could be built and operated cheaply. It is
in a country presenting scarcely any natural
obstacles. There are no mountains to be
crossed and no large streams requiring ex-
"The owners of stock in the Fort Worth and
Denver line will find that it would have been
far more profitable to have treated the people
right than to have resorted to this scheme of
advancing rates. I do not think tho line is do-
ing one-half the business which it did a year
"I have heard that capitalists are getting
ready to survey a new line running through
the same country. 1 believe the local and
through business "would justify a competing
line. There is a large extent of territory in
northwestern Texas without railway facilities,
and it is a country which is rapidiy settlingu
A road from Trinidad to San Antonio would
be preferable to the Fort Worth line. It would
be 150 miles shorter to tidewater. Branch
lines could be built to tap Las Vegas and
Albuquerque and all the distributing points
between Denver and San Antonio. There is a
road now extending north from San Antonio
to Kerrville which could be used in connection
with a trunk line to Colorado.
"I hope the railroad will see the folly of its
present course and lower its rates."
Another Line to tho Gulf.
Denver Republican Editorial.
Denver will never reap the full l>enefit of
its proximity to the gulf of Mexico until it has
a railroad to compote with the Denver, Texas
The Denver, Texas and Gulf is owned by tho
Union Pacific, and a large part of the Union
Pacific system extends to the Missouri river.
The more business the Gulf route does, tho less
the lines of the Union Pacific between Denver
and the Missouri river do. It is, therefore,
not to be expected that tho Gulf route will lie
allowed to compete very strongly with the all-
rail routes to the east.
An indication of this is seen in the recont
advance of rates. When the Gulf route was
opened there was a marked cut in rates. But
it was not as great as it ought to have been.
The power of the all-rail routes was sufficient
to force the Gulf line to terms. Since then its
comi>etition has been of a mild character, and,
of course, its acquisition by the Union Pacific
did not help matters.
It is probably not practicable at the present
time to raise the money with which to build
a railroad from Denver to a connection with
the Texas system of roads. But, nevertheless,
it would be expedient for Denver men to in-
augurate such an enterprise. Whenever they
may begin tiiey will still have a long, hard
fight before tUein, for the all-rail lines will do
their best to prevent the completion of such a
road. If they should begin soon they could at
least organize the company preparatory to au
effort to secure the money. Probably, by tho
time they got tilings in shape, eastern capital-
ists would do more inclined than they are now
to invest in new railway enterprises.
FUNERAL OP MRS. M. A. CRAWFORD.
Ceremony Conducted by Rev. Drs. J. B.
Bears and A. T. Spalding.
In tho death of Mrs. Martha A. Crawford,
which occurred at her late residence on avenue
MX and Seventeenth street on Sunday evening
at 11.05 o'clock, Galveston loses one of its
earliest citizens. Tho deceased was a Miss
Lytlo, whose parents were among the repre-
sentative families of Nashville, Tenn., »nd
soon after her marriage with the late A. C.
Crawford tho young couplo forty years age
came west to reside, selecting Galveston as
their home. Mrs. Crawford was a member of
the St. John's Methodist Episcopal church at
tho time of her death, having joined that
church when they worshiped in the old Ryland
chapel, where now stands Harmony hall. Tho
deoeaied was 71 years old August 18, 185)1.
A Inrge number of Mrs. Crawford's most
intimate friends wore present at the funeral,
which took place at the residence. Her
pastor, the Rev. J, B. Sears, began
the service by reading in a most
impressive manner the 90th psalm, after
which he touchingly commented on the beau-
tiful Christian character of tho deceased. At
the conclusion of Dr. Sears' remarks he it>-
quested the Rev. Dr. A. T. Spalding to lead in
singing the Sweet and By. The singing of this
song m a soft mellow tone by the large num-
ber of sympathetic friends present w as most
effective, the beautiful sentiment and sweet
harmony of the song melting every heart
present. This was followed with prayer, led
by Dr. Spaiding.
The deceased leaves the following children:
Mrs. W. F. Swain, Mrs. V. C. Hart, Mrs. G.
W. Phillips and Messrs. Lytle Rayburn and
Alexander Crawford. The following citizens
acted as pall bearers: J. T. Huffmaster, Rev.
George h. Clothier, J. C. Jones. R. G. Murry,
John Dillion and Robert Franklin.

Pursuant to call of County Chairman James
Holland, tho county convention met at Excel-
sior hall lost evening. The meeting was called
to order by Judge Nelson, who stated the ob-
ject of the meeting. T. G. Nichols was elected
chairman and Wm. H. Stuart secretary, after
which a committee of three was appointed to
name delegates. The committee consisted of
J. H. Wilkens, Samuel Simons and G. W.
Whitthorne, and after an absence of ten min-
utes they reported the delegates as follows to
the Houston convention: Win. H. Stuart, T.

"About a year ago I noticed that my
ankles and legs were swelling, and a con-
saltation with Dr. G. J. Mulvane, of To-
peka, Kan., developed the fact that 1 had
Bright's dinoase, his analysis showing the
presence of a largo uinount of albumen in
my urine. I continued to travel, feeling
that 1 could not afford to give up iny
Siosition on the road. I kept myself un-
ler close medical treatment, but the
■welling and unfavorable symptoms in-
creased so steadily that I could no longer
do my work. On being re-examined the
doctor said my condition was critical and
advised me to go to Excelsior Springs.
1 arrived July consulted with a resident
physician, gave up medicine, and havo
used regularly tho Ferro-Mangauo6e and
Sulpho-Saline waters and the hot Salt
Sulphur Baths daily. My recovery was
rapid and instead or being a weak, emaci-
ated, dropsical wreck, I am to-day a
hearty, roboat man, weighing 165 pounds,
and with splendid appetite and digestion,
feeling better thanl have in ten years.
There remains no trace of dropsical swell-
ing or albumenuria. 1 t believe the
waters and baths saved my life."
