New Orleans, May 6.-—Neglect of
states to exert powers vested in them

Marshall told business men of New

strnck by lightning this morning and
totally destroyed,1 the owners mak-
ing no efforts to save them. Flames
were prevented from spreading to oth-

throughout the oil fields, but because
of crippled telephone service it is im-

GOVERNOR FERGUSON ANSWERS
THOSE WHO WOULD IM-
PUGN HIS MOTIVES.
AUSTN, Texas. May 6 —James E.
Ferguson does not Intend to sit idly
by and allow his motives to be im-
pugned or his purpose to be im-
peached. That much he made un-
usually plain today when he issued a
statement dlfected against alleged at-
tacks upon himself by John F. Onion
oif Dallas and Dwight Lewelling, rep-
resentatives from Dallas whom the
governor feels have been trying to
"impeach my sincere purpose and
establish inconsistency in my public
Governor Ferguson refers to his
statements In his opening speech at
Blum wherein he said, "I am in favor
of such law as is necessary to put
that question (giving foreign life in-
surance companies the right to loan
all the money they desire in Texas)
at rest." He also reiterates a statement
poses the repeal of what is known as
to the effect that he "sincerely op-
poses the repeal of what is knowns as
the Robertson insurance law." He
denies now that he is seeking any
repeal of the law.
There were two bills Introduced In
legislative chambers today, one pro-
vided for the renovation of the state
capttol and appropriates $415,000 for
that purpose. Another bill appropri-
ates $10,000 for the purpose of the
site of the first capital of Texas lo-
cated in Washington county. The
senate committee reported out fav-
orably the bill for renovation and re-
pair work on the capitol.
Tlie measure to provide for the pur-
chase of a site for the blind institute
was also passed finally. The bill car-
ried a $300,000 appropriation as pass-
ed. As the message from the gover-
nor submitted the question there was
doubt in the mind ot various members
of the senate that the amount was
$300,000 but instead was $225,000.
The site to be purchased will comprise
forty acres, not less, and such moneys
as are derived from sale of the present
property will go into the general reve-
The three normal school bill crop-
ped out again. In a message from
the governor it was submitted bearing
the refusal of the supreme court to
appoint any members of the board to
locate tl^» Institutions. Although the
message did not state specifically that
the question was submitted, Governor
Ferguson stated tonight that he in-
tended submitting the question to the
legislature. He favors the establish-
ment of the normal schools and would
like to see the legislature so modify
the bill as to make It operative.
The senate finance committee ac-
complished nothing during the day
session and took no votes on any
questions. B. Youngblood, director of
experiment stations, appeared in be-
half of the experiment station work.
In the house an effort will be made
to get the Grindstaff bill up for early
consideration and get the matter out
of committee and before the house for
consideration the earlier part of next
week. Interest is growing more in-
tense on the bill to the detriment of
other legislation and it is believed by
some most advisable to dispose of the
measure before proceeding further
with the appropriation bill section.
A petition is being circulated in the
senate requesting the governor to sub-
mit the question ot an, amendment to
the warehouse law which would make
it optional upon the writ ten request of
the owner for all cotton ginned to be
ginned under the old law or under the
provisions of the permanent ware-
house law and allowing a reasonable
charge where the ginner lakes sam-
ples and performs the services re-
quired in the present permanent ware-
house law. Thece is a limit of fifty
cents per bale for each bale charge.
The petition also requests the right to
make it optional as to covering the
cotton completely with wrapping and
where this is done to allow a charge
not to exceed fifty cents per bale to
be paid by the owners in the Interests
of this legislation Dabney S. White,
president ot the Ginners' association,
is in Austin. Senator Astin is pushing
the move in the senate.
- Morris Locke of Dallas, Mayor Llnd-
se.v of that city and B. Y. Cummlngs
of Hillsboro addressed the house com-
mittee on Insurance. The speech and
arguments of Mr. Locke for an
amendment to the Robertson law
were the best of the healings to date.
Ho made a most favorable impression.
Mayor Lindsloy ot Dallas and Mr.
Cuinmings closed the arguments.
Mayor Lindsley appeared for no mod-
ification of the present; law and Mr.
Cummlngs In favor. The hearing will
be continued throughout the week.

INTERURBAN DOPE AT AUSTIN
Rumored That Strickland System Will
Build from Waco to San Antonio.
November the Date Set.
AUSTIN. May 6.—Information frogi
a thoroughly reliable source is that
the Texas Light and Power company,
which operates in conjunction with
the J. F. Strickland interurban lines
will probably begin between now and
next November the establishment of
a transmission line from Waco to Aus-
tin and probably on to San Antonio.
The plans are such as to indicate that
Mr. Strickland has under serious con-
skleratiwn the proposition of extend-
ing his interurban lines from Waco
through to Austin and thin to San
Antonio if possible. At present the
lines that he has built extend from
Denison through Dallas to Waco.
Mr. Strickland has just returned t-o
Texas from New York, where he has
had some rather important engage-
ments with eastern financiers. He
was here last Sunday and may return
again within the next few days.

KiiIh d'Arc, Found Only la Tout*, Sub-
stitute For Anilines.
Fort Worth, Texas, May G.—After
spending Thursday in search of in-
formation as to sources of Bois d'Arc
wood to manufacture a new yellow
dye for tanning leather, replacing
anilines heretofore obtained from Ger-
many. Professor T. S Acree, Uni-
versity of Wisconsin, at Madison, an-
nounced he had a sufficient number
of names of Texas saw mills and Bois
d'Arc lumber dealers to furnish Amer-
icay dye manufacturers willing to take
advantage of his recent discovery.
The discovery having been under
the auspices of the United States bu-
reau of chemical research, is not pat-
ented and is available to any Ameri-
can dye manufacturer. Bois d'Arc, or
Osage orange, is a native Texas wood
and large quantities of chips, sawdust
and other waste suitable for dye man-
ufacture are available at a cost which
is believed to make the new product
commercially a success.
