AUSTIN Texas. June )5. It.was hd Wnft'XThe gorenoT has made good
his threats. At g:10 o'clock Tuesday night a final; .official and legal Teto ot

medical department located; at Galveston aa Wed 1th the aecretary of State.
Thus the university row baa raacneil its elimax.'- The rula ruin policy
of the governor has been brought to its greatest goali An i lnsWutton which
was founded In 1883 and has cost millions of dollars and the labor of thousands
ot talented and able men to build up to thus threatened; with mini ? '
More than three thousand Of the youth of Texas face tho sudden termina-
tion ot their school training. More than fifteen hundred ot them who have
been working their way through school will bo unable to attend another
lnsatuUon. The governor's act has put a period to their struggle tor an
education. .tA . j ? r- ;
But the friends of ths university throughout .the State to the number of many
thousand are already offering funds to the amount of hundreds of thousands for
the support of the university until legal redress can be had.' There te lUUeldans r
that the unlverelty authorities will allow even a slight toterruntlon" of thesr: work.
The summer schools of the university are already provided for. and before the full
term opens a way wlU have been found either to overcome the governor's veto of
these maintenance appropriations or to finance the school from funds privately
subscribed either as gifts or as loans to Ae Institution.- s v;
Attorneys who have been Investigating the matter are firmly convinced that the
act of the governor is a plain violation- of ths constitution of Texas which provides
for the aiaintenance.of a State university. r. -'. ': .s ."'j'ifhi-'

tvhether this shall be deemed tbe best method of redress has not. yet been
determined but It is certain that Texaa will find a way legally to assure ths con-
tinuance of the State university and alt other State Institutions secure' from the

The conference of the board of regents
of the University of Texaa has absolutely
failed of any useful purpose. Nons of the
problems which' confront that Institution
have been solved. The governor has not
been placated nor .has ' any change been
made by the many hours of secret con-
ference held here Tuesday. -
While none of the regents would allow
himself to be quoted concerning the meet-
