The Fort Worth Charter.
"i All Fort Worth charter disputes have
leen settled except the single element
Of franchise renewal.- As related In last
" night's dispatches there was a disposition
te omit tle provision which prevents re-
newal of public utility franchises except
.. Within twelve months of each expiration.
Which at the present time affects only
. UM pending renemal of Fort Worth Uglit
and Power company's franchise.
Judge George Armstrong whom crtti.-s
tiad credited with causing the provision
- to be Inserted last night requested Its
omission but the representations made
by Messrs. Powell and Ftifiugli proved
weighty with the senate cofimtttee and
. '.anight the provision stands. That rop-
-sanitation is that twice within the last
' our years tne people nave reiusea io
. .rant a reaewal to the Furt Worth Ught
-ind Power company; that eight years
. i .wfore the expiration of the charter the
. company bepan the policy of refusing to
make xtenslons: that It has not kept
" faith with the spirit of its grant In this
particular: that the city convention last
. fail voiced the popular Judgment against
renewal of this company's grant; that the
limitation is reasonable and sound as a
nneral public policy and It should not
be waived as a special consideration to a

Fltihugh today recalled the bill from
the house for purposes of technical cor-
rection but that will not affect its par-
liamentary status. It has passed the
hObse finally and Senator Alexander will
pat It through the senate whenever the
t agreed amendments are prepared In due
form. Of course nothing is certain In
legislation but as the case stands tonight

Those Hurried Up Bills.
The Greater Fort Worth charter bill
was recalled from the senate by the
house today for purposes of correction.

ta bunch by the bouse Wednesday night
voder such circumstances that the gov-
ernor has taken cognizance of the mat-
ter and Indicated that he will investl-
' aate the alleged record .of their passage
- before letting them get by him.
' Lieutenant Governor Davidson has also
stated that he will hold up any one of
the bills in question that may opine be-
for the senate upon a questioning of the
reprnlarlty of their passage by any mem-
ber of that body. .

thev are supposed to have been are re-
corded as having voted "aye."'
And it Is noticeable that but two lists
of names were used In the preparation of
these forty-three alleged separate and
distinct roll calls allowing ninety affirm-
ative votes and no negative votes and
the other showing ninety-one affirmative
and no negative votes each list being
pressed Into service alternately.
The straight of all this Is that on the
night In question Mr. Fltihugh Inquired
If for the purpose of expediting business
the various bills before the house being
local bills could not all be disposed of
In a lump after having been read by
number and caption. The speaker agreed
that such a procedure could be followed
without doing violence to the constitu-
tion. ONLY ONE BILL "CUT OIT ."
Mr. Fltihugh then made a motion to
that effect which was adopted where-
upon the speaker announced that a num-
ber of bills on second reading would bo
read bv caption and that where there
was objection or desire to amend the bill
thus affected would be "cut out of the
herd" and considered separately.
One of these "cut out of the herd" was
the Beaumont charter bill which Mr.
Chaney amended and afterward had pass-
ed according to the Journal by one of
the two roll calls which supposedly did
Hntv fortv-three times.
The herd having been expe"tousy
branded "engrossed" Mr. Fltshugh moved
that the constitutional rule requiring
bills to be read on three separate days
vbe suspended and that the bunch of bills
Just engrossed be placed on their third
reading and final passage and the mo-
tion carried with one roll call which
shows ninety affirmative and no negatlvs
votes and contains the names of mem-
bers voting "ave" who were not In the
hall st the time it was had. this being
the onlv time the roll wss called on Mr.
Fitthugh's proposition although two sep-
arate roll calls are used In the Journal
to make It appear that said proposition
carried forty-three different times.
One thing that the Journal does not
disclose is this: SomP? hesitation 'having
developed over acquiescing In the pro-
ceeding the speaker announced that no
one need have any fear but what the rec-
ord would be fixed up to appear straight
The Journal would be edited be said
snd the Journal clerk would be given what
assistance he might need to get In It
everything necessary to properly brand
all the bills Involved. This explanation is.
in Justlcw. due the Journal clerk who
acted under Instructions In all of this
A resolution will be introduced In the
senate Monday calling for the Investlga-'
tton of the manner In which forty-three
bills are alleged to have been unconsti-
tutionally passed In the house Wednes-
dsy night and a resolution will be in-
troduced In the house recalling from the
senate the bills that are being investi-
gated. Seport to Be Filed Monday.

H. H. Haines
Secretary Galveston Chamber of Com
LETTER SHOWS WEAKNESS OF
It Is a weak proposition Indeed that
must rest upon such an awkwardly men
dacious defense as the above submits
To begin with. Mr. Haines again post
tiv'ely refuses to commit himself to I
straightout reduction In rates from which
every consumer and every shipper would
benefit alike and stands pat on his orlg
Inal and continued demand for the elimi-
nation of Houston as a cotton handling
point on the ground that Houston hand-
ling is unnecessary and that the charge
incidental thereto is a burden upon the
In other words. Mr. Haines Is trying
to argue that the handling charge la
a burden on the cotton only when said
cotton is handled In Houston but that
Its collection 'in the Interior to which
he does not object or In Galveston where
he thinks it a benefit does not affect the
All of which means that Mr. Haines
would not care what the rate for the
transportation of cotton In Texas might
be provided It was no greater to Gal-
veston than to Houston regardless ef
whether "the same rate for a like service
was being charged "to other people under
the same or similar conditions" or not.
. It this Is not to. why does bd eontln--ually
say that the Moller biU la not an
attempt to prescribe rates and why doss
he religiously. In unison with Mr. Moller
hfmself. avoid specification when asked
to give the maximum that should apply
with the Houston-Galveston differential
Mr. Haines has made many foolish
breaks in trying to defend the Moller
bilf-. but he reaches the limit in that
direction when he tries to apologize for
the excessive Galveston terminal charges
by attributing them to action on ths part
of the railroad commission.
Some years ago representatives of Gal-
veston appeared before ths railroad com-
mission and asked that the rate on cotton
locally consigned to Galveston me made
2 cents lower per 100 pounds than the
rate on cotton for shlpslde delivery.
In support of this prayer it was sub-
mitted that cotton was bandied so much
cheaper In Houston than' In Galveston
that it was practically Impossible to suc-
cessfully carry on a cotton factorage
business in ths latter city. And the
railroad commission out of pure kind-
ness of heart ordered the railroads to
give up 10 cents a bale out Of tlielr rats
In order that the Galveston cotton fac-
tors might be able to meet some of the
charges incidental to the handling of cot-
ton locally In that city and exist.
WHY RATH WAS RAISED.
Subsequently however the commission
was struck with the ridiculousness of
penalising the railroads for the benefit
of factors unfortunate enough to be
located In a city which while contin-
ually boasting of Its natural advantages
never grows weary of oontplalnins; of tha
enterprise of its neighbors whenever that
enterprise Is productive of a saving In
terminal charges to the shipper. And the
rate on cotton locally consigned to Gal-
veston was again raised to the shlpslde
This is the only Instance In which Gal-
veston ever applied for or committed
itself to a reduction In the cotton rate;
an instance in which Galveston factors
were the sole beneficiaries; aa instance
in which the producers' interests were
neither mentioned nor considered: an in
stance In which the sole purpose was te
otest asrainst the economical methods of
andllna- cotton adopted for tha benefit
or me snipper oy Houston.
As to Mr. Haines' renewed assault anon
the integrity of members of the railroad
commission it but fortifies ths conclusion)
thst all he Is after Is a vote of want of
confidence in that body for refusing te
consider anything but the interests of
Gslveston in making tariffs.
