Beau Monde says in its last
issue that “the solid men of Dal-
las county, the men who pay the
taxes and keep the machine mov-
ing, favor the passage of the
measure, .meaning that these
“solid men” want the bill to con-
tain the above named provisions.

quite; Frank Ellis of Newhope,

land, J. K. Looney of Oak Cliff,
C. C. Huflines of Richardson and
the people they represented in
this matter “tax payers and sol-
id men?” Who will have to use
the roads' to market produce,
and , will not the city of Dallas be
be Relit ted if the money is spent
on roads so as to do the most
good to the, greatest humber of
people without regard to the
special interest‘of any city or
town as against the other towns?
The Automobile Club in Dallas
would probably be especially ben*
efitted if all the roads should
lead directly into Dallas but the
interests of the city as a whole
can be better subserved if some
important cross roads are built.
Beau Monde, in its last issue,
attempts to put the burden of
opposition to the original bill on
judge Foree, notwithstanding the
fact that the same provisions of
the bill did not meet his views
are objectedt to by Messrs. Love
and Handcock, who constitute a
majority of the members from
Dallas, county in the House and
could force amendments to it or
defeat the bill if they saw fit to
do so. And they did see fit to
insist on amending it. Judge
Foree stated, and the fact was
published, that he would go no
further in opposing those fea-
tures of the bill than Messrs.
Love and Handcock.
Wo credit Senator McKamy,
Col. Bowser, the Times Herald,

with them with honesty and sin-
cerity but we deny that they have
a corner on thesa virtues, and
we assert that a majority of our

account of the near approach of
the end of the regular session,
legislative matters are being

is somewhat difficult to keep up

The resolution to fix the date
for sine die adjournment came
up again a few days ago but was
postponed to Wednesday of this
week. Th© general opinion now
is that adjournment will come In
a few days after the occasion of
President Roosevelt’s visit here,
which.is to be on April 7-- How-
ever, there is such a degree of
uncertainty prevailing that to
make a prediction as to what
they will do in matters at this
time is nothing but guess work.

Last Friday night the House
adjourned over until Monday and
the writer and a party which in-
cluded Mrs. C. E. Gross of Dal-
las, and Editor R. M. Hudson of
the Irvin Index, spent Saturday
in San Antonio. That city is not
only the moet historical but in
our judgement is the prettiest
city in Texrs. (Dallas is the
best.) Except the Alamo and
other objects of historical inter-
est its chief attraction is the
great uumber of beautiful parks
which are to be found in all parts
of the city. The streets are re-
markably narrow and in some
places a vehicle cannot pass be-
tween the street car and the
pavement except on one side and
then it is a close drive.

If all grafting is cut out in the
management of the construction
of good roads in Dallas county,
and the road money judiciously
and economically used, the dif-
ference of opinion as to what
roads shall be built will amount
to but very little, as a good and
permanent road built anywhere

great benefit to its immediate

wffi be the proper thing to give

v The Dallas Times Herald and
Beau Monde, another Dallas pub-
lication with which the editor of
the Times Herald is connected,
have had considerable, to say
about the road law for Dallas
county. It Is clearly within the
province of a newspaper to dis*
cuss public questions of that
character but it appears to the
writer that these papers have as-
sumed to themselves ands the
people who favor the road bill as
originally drawn, which provided
that all the money realized from
the sale of the road bonds should
be expended on roads loading in-
to Dallas and that the work
should be dyne exclusively under
the contmct system, practically
