Gen. Cabell prior to the bedding of
the election. The Texas General In a
manly speech declared that he would
not enter a contest for honors.
"I will share my canteen, my ra-
tions and my all with my fellow Con-
federates, but I will not enter Into a
fight for office,** he said.
In spite of the declaration a move-
ment in the interest of Gen. Cabell
was started on the floor of the con-
vention which came very near result-
ing in Cabell's election. After Gen.
Evans had been placed in nomination
by Gen. Young of Kentucky, Judge
Withers of Missouri made an elo-
quent plea for the election, of Cabell,
which came very near sweeping the
convention off its feet. There was
a long squabble over the vote of the
Alabama delegation. It was announc-
ed for Evans when roll was called, but
Congressman William Richardson of
Huntsville and others made a protest.
Congressman Richardson made a
strong plea for the unanimous elec-
tion of Cabell. The Alabama vote was
finally cast for Evans. The solid vote
of Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma
were cast for Cabell.

R. J. Smith has just returned from
the A. ft M. College and. being ques-
tioned by a Herald reporter as to con-
ditions existing there, had this to say:
In view of the wide publicity gtveu
tho proceedings recently had at the
A. ft M. College, everyone Is Inform-
ed that, through the efforts of the
Alumni Association and ex-students
of the College, the Board of Directors
consented to Investigate the matters
submitted to them, bearing upon
President Harrington s fitness for the
position he holds, and this investiga-
tion Is now under way, and it would
not be proper for me to indulge In a
prophecy at this time as to what con-
clusion the hoard will reach after all
testimony Is before them. But I .can
say that the condition of the A. &
I M. College with reference to its pres-
ident is without precedent so far as I
know or have heard. There exists
an intense feeling of personal hatred
on the part of the present student
body against tlmir president. At least

the line of march was one great dls-

along Twentieth Street, through
which broad street the procession
countermarched for six blocks. Hand-
some arches spanned the street at
regular intervals. At Capital Park

court of honor.

Witnesses Testify That He la
Man to Head the A. ft M.
College Station. Tex.. June 11.—
Very little that was entirely new and
nothing that was startling was devel-
oped in the second day of the investi-
gation of the charges against Presi-
dent Harrington nnd the troubles at
the Agricultural and Mechanical Col-
lege now being conducted by tho
board of directors of that institution.
Kleven witnesses were examined,
namely: F. H. Burmelster of Tllden,
Geo. Brundrcrte of Dallss, J. H. Fur-
neaux of Dallas and J. H. Jennings of
Martindale, patrons of the college; T.
J Bceslev. president of the senior
cia*s of this year; C. A. Burmelaber,
George Biddle, I’aul D. Casey, C. P.
Brannin and A. J Smith, cadets, and
A. P. Rollins, an alumnus. These wit-
nesses without exception declared
the|r belief that a change In the presi-
dency of the Institution was neces-
sary. because they said Dr. Harring-
ton htlfe an nnfortunate way of deal-
ing with the students and did not have
their respect and confidence. This,
of course. Is a general statement.
Not more than one-eighth of the
testimony was given upon direct ex-
amination. The remaining seven-
eighths was brought out by croas-ex-
amlnation. at first conducted by Judge
Charles Rogan and later by Judge
8am R- Scott of Waco. The latter
appeared yesterday morning as coun-
sel for President Harrington, and took
an aotive part In the proceedings as
soon as he had been on hand long
enough to get the run of things.
