With fefvor and eloquence Senator
Vaughan presented his views In sup-
port of the hill In the Interest of a
pure ballot, a clean election and a fair
count. He defended its several pro-
visions, especially those with reference
to contests and that fixing the venue
of prosecutions for making false re-
turns to Travis County. As to the lat-
ter he said the jurisdiction should be
away from the county where local in-
fluences would play such a prominent
part, and he knew of no fairer or bet-
ter place than the courts of Travis
County. In his argument he cited the
sond vote caatjon propositions and for
candidate In certain southwest coun-
ties, as showing the improbability of
fair trials In such counties. He con-’1
eluded In an Impassioned plea for a
law that would prevent the prohibition
election from being "stolen.”
Senators Watson and Murray offer-
ed an amendment to the pending
amendment by adding to the bill a new
section, to be numbered section 5a. to
read as tollows:
"Sec. 6a. Any election officer or su-
pervisor, who shall Intimidate or at-
tempt to intimidate any voter, or know-
ingly refuse to allow any qualified vot-
er to vote, or any person who, within
100 feet of the voting box on election
lay, shall Intimidate or attempt to in-
timidate any qualified voter from vot-
ing, or in any manner, by word or act,
ittempt to Influence any voter to cast
his vote for or against any such ques-
tion provided under this act to be vot-
ed upon, shall be deemed guilty of a
misdemeanor, and upon conviction
shall be fined in any sum not less than
|(>0 nor more than 9600. Provided,
further, that the provisions of this sec-
tion shall not be construed to prevent
the officers of electron from assisting
any qualified voter from making out
his ticket as Is provided for under the
general election law.”
The amendment was accepted and
Cofer. Mayfield and McNealus has
adopted by the senate a resolution In-
viting former Senator Senter of Dallas
to address that body. Among other
things Senator Senter took occasion
to commend Governor Colquitt for ve-
toing the Texarttana charter and
roundly condemned the recall as a
form of government leading to chaos.
Dallas was cited by him as an. in-
stance of what the recall can do. Since
he had been a party to placing the
recall in the Dallas charter, he apolog-
ised profusely for the part he had play-
ed in the matter.
Former ^Representative Harris of

noiselessly like a faithful family horse.
Perhaps that is the explanation of
the conduct of the house when It first
rescinded the resolution which it pass-
ed on Thursday for sine die adjourn-
ment on March 11, only a moment af-
terward and in a hurry to repent, re-

insurance companies was passed final-
jThe Elliott joint resolution submit-
ting to a vote of the people a constitu-
tional amendment, exempting cotton
and woolen mills from taxation for fif-
teen years was debated upon the house
reassembling, after the noon recess.
This resolution had been pending dur-
ing the morning, but the haphazard
style that business was transacted had
prevented any continuous considera-
tion of It. > .
A pending amendment by Mr. Nick-
els of Hill to strike out the “resolving
clause" und kill the resolution, was fa-
vored by Mr. Singleton, who urged that
If manufacturers were to .be exempted
saw mills and railroads might as well
Mr. Elliott spoke for the resolution,
which, If adopted, would result ma-
terially in thp development of the
Mr. Bagby opposed the resolution
and thought its principles not in ac-
cord with the teachings of democracy.
It was further argued, by numerous
questions, that the proposed exemption
would be in line with the protective
tariff principle, to which the detnoern-
tic party was opposed, and that It was
the policy of that party not to foster
or protect special Industries.
Mr. Wortham spoke ably against
this process of reasoning and for the
resolution, and the development of
Texas. He said the “Old Alcalde,”
Governor Roberts, had submitted this
very subject to the legislature and had
favored such tax exemption. Mr. Wor-
them said he revered the principles of
the fathers as much as any one, but he
was tired of this cant, which kept
Texas back while states with one-tenth
of her natural resources grew richer
rthan this state:”
The amendment striking out the re-
solving clause and killing the bill was
lost, 25 ayes and 73 noes.
Mr. Minton offered an amendment
providing tha't the real property tax-
payers of any city and town may de
clde by vote whether or not they will
exempt from taxation, cotton or wool*
en factories in their community.
Adopted. On a division, the vote was
35 ayea and 35 noes.
.The adoption of the local option
amendment killed the resolution, as on
the question of engrossment most of
those who had voted aye changed to
no. It failed to paaa to engrossment

Uncle Joe’s Check.
Ool. Henry Casftm, sergeant-at-arms
of the house of representatives, has
the original check given by Speaker
Joseph G. Cannon a few years ago to
a book agent, and about which an in-
teresting story has been told.
Au agent visited the speaker and In-
terested him in an elaborate edition of
something which Uncle Joe didn’t
want, but bought When the hooka
arrived Uncle Jee examined them and
decided at once that something had
been put over him. When the agent
came for his money the speaker de-
termined to make him Indorse a terse
sentiment on books, so he wrote out a
check for 973, the amount due. and on
the back of It Inscribed:
"Pay to the’ order of Mr. Blank, In
full payment for an edition which was
cot worth a d—, and dear ait that
price, hut for the ease and grace with
which he put It over your Uncle Joe
It waa well worth the money.”—Hu-
