by Messrs. Cochran, McKinney, Craw-
ford and others. A lively and Inter-
esting debate followed, Mr. Baker at-
tacking the bill as an unwarrantable
gerrymander in the interest of congres-
sional aspirants. He had a telegram
iU Paso adi
from El Paso advising him that a dele-
gation was on its way to protest against
the bill. El Paso was put in a district
with San Antonio, COO miles distant.
Colonel Brown repelled the charge
that the committee had gerrymander-
ed in the interest of any candidate for
COR. w. .
Crawford characterized the bill
as “an unconscionable gerrymander.”
All such measeres are crimes against
the interests of the people and free
government. He would not say that it
was made in the interest of any man,
but it was there And lie opposed if

Mr. Batts defended the bill as the
best that the committee could do after
hearing allparties and sections. There
were reasons why districts could not
be given symmetrical form. It was
necessary to guard against Republican
Mr.Crawford asked how the Republi-
cans could capture a congressional dis-
trict when they were able to win but
one seat itt:the state legislature.
Mr. Batts-replied that it were better
to not inquire how it was that the Re-
publicans had only one member in this
Mr. Gerald favored postponement as
a courtesy to those asking it, and took
occasion to. remark that he had no
words <of condemnation for the alleged
genytekAdeF m the bill. He indorsed
It as ndcAssary to maintain the purity
and superiority of the Anglo-Saxon
race. He would gerrymander paradise
for that purpose.
Mr. Gresham denied the gerrymand-
er, and argued the impossibility of
makingthodistricts regular in form,
because the counties are not of regular
form, as in many northern states.
Mr. Bakef’s motion to postpone was
lost on a vote, also Mr. O’Brien’s
amendment, for the Change desired in
his district.. . *
Mr. Baker next moved to strike out
Bexar countj of the Twelfth . district
and insert it in the Eleventh, strike
out Kinney and Uvaldeof the Eleventh
and insert them in the Twelfth district,

Will Gould Gobble It? v-
The Denver papers ■ Seem to look on
Jay Gould as a roaring lion, bent on
devouring their spring lamb—the Den-
ver & El Paso Independent railroad.
Neither Gbuld nor any Of his subordin-
ates can turn around but the papers
see in it an effort on his part to absorb
the proposed road. General Manager

Mr. Hamblen said that since the
house decided to strike down Messrs.
Baker and O’Brien and show favorite-
ism by adopting the amendment of
Mr. Gossett, he would move to recom
mit the bill. Motion lost.
Mr. Rogan of Brown offered to amend
composing the eigthdistrict as follows;
Parker, Hood, Somerville, Bosque, Co-
ryell, Hamilton, Lampasas, Mills, Uo-
This anxiety over the fate of the pro-
posed road, by its new friends, is very
gratifying to the old-time supporters
of the enterprise, since it shows how
deeply enljsted they have become; but,
really, the dread of Mr. Gould is pre-
mature. He does not gobble up roads
before they are built. He waits until
they have bean built and then absorbs
them, saving thereby the expenses of
construction. If ever the proposed
Denver & El Paso line shall be in dan-
ger from him, it will be after some
others have borne the labor and ex-
pense of its building. A. A. Tripp, of
the Missouri Pacific, Denver, thinks
that Mr. Gould is in El Paso for the
purpose of considering the matter of
building a bridge across the Rio Gran-
de. He asserts that if Gould builds
from El Paso imOld Mexico, the line
will strike the Gulf of California 200 or
300 miles miles south of Guaymas, and
the building will depend on whether a
harbor can be constructed at some such
point on the gulf. Mr. Tripp thinks
Mr. Cqulta may dabble some in Pecos
irrigation, and may gather into his
fold the Pews Valley railroad.—Das
White Tripp & Co. are puzzling their
brain to know what Mr. Gould intends
to do, he continues to grow fat on El
Paso climate and to laugh In his sleeves
at the railroad lore* Exhibited by the
talking mab of the Missouri Pacific.
