report of an attempted Interview with
the governor on June SO. 1917 when the

On cross- AjnlnaUon. 'however he tes-
tified that the governor had stated in a
later Interview that the university .would
open that ISM.tM could be obtained from
land money or other funds which the uni-
versity had which would opera H
through the year or near the eloeeef the
year -and then deficiency warrants could
be Issued. '
At the afternoon session. O. H. Hoiton.
a clerk in the office of the state treasurer
was called to testify regarding the Canyon
City normal fund. Ho said that his rec-
ords showed a deficiency fn the general
revenue en October U. 11S ' but he did
not know 'hew much. He said that the
payments of the b.uildleg-of the new
school bv the Gross ButMtae? eompanv
came out or the general revenue. 4n which
fund it was deposited. HV said that be-
ginning November 1. IriS. the stats treas-
urer maae several calls for certain war-
rants then outstanding and net paid. The
first call was for $137000 on November t.
WHY THERE WA ' '
A TREASURY DEFICIT.
He said the amount of insurance money
paid into the treasury from the Canyon
City normal Tund by Governor Ferguson
after November 1 waa I61.099.8J. He
said that the Canyon City normal fund
was treated as a general revenue fund.
He declared It would not have been neces-
sary to declare a deficiency for some time
If the Canyon City normal ifund had been
on hand In the treasury that the defi-
ciency would have been delayed until the
tjO.000 was exhausted. He said the same
thing applied with reference to the ac-
counts of the secretary of state.
On cross-examination he said he could
not state whether the money for the Can-
yon City building was specifically appro-
Dronriated for that nuroose bv a special
act of the legislature but he assumed that
me iivo.ooo insurance money waa simpiy
to be added to the 954000 appropriated by
the legislature to be treated as a general
fund. If a special fund was maintained
the warrants would be paid out for the
building as the money came In.
He said the warrants Issued by the
comptroller of the Canyon City building
treated It as a general revenue fund. He
stated that if the $101000 normal Insur-
ance money had -been placed as a special
fund In the treasury there would have
been no difference as to ths time the
State went on a deficiency basis. He tes-
tified that the governor deposited 949-
507.35 up to November 1 1915. and 951-
090.81 after that date.
H. A. Turner secretary and treasurer
of the Texas Trust company and secre-
tary of the normal board ef regents tes-
tified that his company purchased four of
the warrants received by the witness
Gross in payment for the construction of
the Canyon City Normal building. .Two
of these he said were purchased No-
vember 3. 1915 one for 98732.W and one
for 8S1IC70. They were discounted. for 1
per cent. Two others were purchased De-
cember 1 1915 one for 14201.10 and one
for 17291.20 at a price of less than one-
half of 1 per cent He said this charge
was less than what the Austin banks
usually charged. Hs said he had no in-
formation as to the probability when they
wculd be oald and that no favoritism was
shown his bank In collection. In each
instance one warrant was against the
main building and one "against the wing.

verse decision by the supreme court in

TEXT OF MESSAGE
VETOING JUDGES' SALARY BILL.
"To the Honorable Secretary of State.
'This is to advise that I have this fifth
day of April. A. D. 1917. officially disap-
proved and vetoed bouse bill No. 21
passed by the thirty-fifth legislature- the
same being an act to rafse the salaric
of district Judges from $3000 to 83600;
of Judges of the courts of civil appeals
from 94000 to $4500; and the Judges of
the supreme court and the court of crim-
inal appeals from $5000 to $8000 my objec-
(Thereupon tne clerk noceeded with the
reatfng of the document.)
1 am quite well aware of the criticism
which 1 shall receive for vetoing this bill.
but I think I know what I am doing.
Judges should not be paid as little ss tiie
poorest lawyer in the community makes
nor should they be paid what the next
lawyer in the country makes: but they
should? be paid an amount somewhat larg-
er than what the average lawyer In the
country makes. In my opinion this law
would not change the personnel of three
district Judges in Texas. Three thousand
dollars will get Just as good a district
judge as $3800 will get. and I am reliably
informed that every Judge on the court of
civil appeals and on the supreme court
is a candidate for re-election. Daring my
incumbency of office there have been
man v vacancies probably 26. on the vari
ous district benches of the State: and in
variably 4 was besieged and beset b
as good if not the best' talent in each
district imploring me to give them the
appointment which shows that $3000 a
year is sufficient. When a district Judge
gets $3000 a year with no books to buy.
with no office rent and no stenosranher
to employ it Is equal to a law practice
that pays $5000 a year far more than
the average lawyer makes or ever hopes
to make. The higher courts of this State
have given their approval to the nrooo-
sition that tiie governor of this State must
be. restricted to a salary of $4000 and no
more: and It does occur to me that if
the dignity of the governor's office is to
be thus restricted by the decree of the
higher courts to $4000 a y-ear. they them-
selves ought to be satisfied with their
present salaries which are as much and
more than the governors salary.
"It would cost the taxpayers of the
State some $75000 a year if this law waa
enacted; which amount. In my opinion
would net Increase the efficiency Of the
personnel of the Judges who are now
paid as well if not batter than the other
branches of the pttbHe service. The bill
is tnereiore aisapprovea and vetoed."
James K. Ferguson.
Governor of Texas.
General Crane then read the letter
written by Governor Ferguson to the su
preme court on March 22' 1917 which

LETTER WRITTEN TO
JUDGES WAS READ.
A transcript of the record In the case
of Maddox against the Dayton Lumber
company was introduced in evidence and
thoo the stter which the governor sen!
tn tie judges of the Beaumont court of
appeals in answer to a letter from Judge
A. G. Brooks. The governor's letter was
as follows: "
Judge A. Q. Brooke. Beaumont Texas.
April 17. 1918. Dear Judge: Tour favor
of April It has been unanswered on ac-
count of absence from home.
I note that you want me to write you a
letter containing the folktwings:
"Judge A. G. Brooke Beaumont Texas.
"As my appointee I am pleased to know
that you have riven satisfaction to the
bench bar and people of your district."
James rerguson. .
It Is with verv sincere regret that. I
advise that I ean not conscientiously write
you to the manner requested. A state-
ment of that kind ought not te be gfven
by me unless I honestly entertained that
I appointed you and the other ntembers
of the court upon the belief that you
would hear the merits of every lawsuit
and upon the recommendation of your
friends that each and every member of
the oourt possessed the legal qualifications
commensurate with the dignity of the
position to which you were appointed.
This appointment was made in the face of
strong protests claiming neither member
of the court was a lawyer of any knows
My attention has been nailed to the de-
cision of your court rendered 4in the case
of MaddOx vs. Dayton Lumbtr company
which had been previously decided a gains;
the defendants in the lower court. If thlj
opinion is permitted to stand then there
is no title In Texas to any land located in
a survey that contains an excess but what
can be taken away from the people who
own IL and they are subject at any time
to have their land filed on by unscrupu-
lous land surveyors in utter defiance of
the laws of Texas and the supreme court
decisions which have held that the acts
of such surveyors are utterly void and all
proceedings thereunder convey no title..
t cau your attention mat your court al-
though this proposition has been raised
repeatedly In the different hearings ot
this case has failed to meet this question
raised in the record. The humblest clti-
sen in the land is entitled to have the
contentions of bis case passed on whether
favorably or unfavorably. The decision
in this court permits in utter defiance of
law tne survey of a public surveyor ad
mitting that he had a proprietary Interest
iu the land surveyed as a vacancy to take
procedure over every surveyor that had
surveyed this land for 70 years and sur-
veyed at a time when the marks were still
on the around and could be found and in a
position to know what they were doing
far better than any unlawful surveyor who
.could locate it at the time that this land
was located under an agreement to eet
part of the land which he might locate.
I call your attention that all these facts
appear in the record and the rule is well
established that the burden of proof was
upon the plaintiffs to establish their title
and when there is a void chain appearing
in the title certainly no lawyer of any
known ability could contend for a minute
that the plaintiffs would be entitled to
Not being satisfied with disregarding
the law in this respect the court has seen
fit no go in and find facts and locate the
vacant surveys and thus invade the prov-
ince of the Jury in such s manner as to
do violence to the rights of citizens and
the laws or this country
Not being satisfied with this for 'the
first time in the history of Texas Juris
prudence the court lays down the as-
tounding proposition that in the location
of this land that the calls ot the survey
can not be reversed In order to properly
locate the land.
Taking this decision as sample of the
court's work. I can not. In Justice to my-
self consider thst ft . would be proper- for
me to write you in the manner requested.
As you know. I entertained for each
member of the court the highest regard
but do not think I can go further than
I have done to .promote the personal in-
terest of the members of the court.
I am sending a copy of this letter to
each member of the court. In order trlat
all parties mar be advised of the true
tacts. Tours truly.
