Texas state superintendent of pub-
lic instruction, announced today an
additional payment of $1 per capita

CUT IN TAXES AND
LAGRANGE, Texas, Oct. 22.—
Orville Bullington of Wichita Falls,
republican candidate for governor,
declared again in an address here
Saturday afternoon that taxes must
Introduced by Mayor Guy Robson,
Bullington spoke in the district court
room amid frequent applause. Earlier
in the day he spoke at Columbus and
other South Texas towns.
The candidate promised that if he
were elected governor he would make
every effort to abolish the ad valorem
tax, among other things increasing
the tax on sulphur to make up the
difference. He also declared he would
cut the expense of government by
eliminating duplication in offices.
Denounces James Ferguson.
As in his other speeches, Bulling-
ton bitterly denounced James E. Fer-
guson, husband of the democratic
candidate, Mrs. Miriam A. Ferguson.
He did not mention Mrs. Ferguson.
“We have them scared and on the
run,” Bullington said. “They have
tried to laugh this campaign off.
We’re wrecking Jim’s gravy train.”
Bullington asserted he would like
to be elected on his platform, but
added, “It’s either vote for me or
nothing.” He declared bolting was a
duty and urged the electorate to put
the welfare of the country above
“Like Belshazzar of old,” Bulling-
ton said, “Jim Ferguson will find the
handwriting on the wall. He will be
weighed and found wanting on No-
Negroes in Audience.
At Columbus, Bullington stressed
his objections to the Ferguson plan
of placing one-third of the gasoline
tax in the general fund, claiming the
taxpayers would not receive any con-
siderable benefit from the money af-
ter it was in that fund.
A number of negroes were in the
audience and after Bullington’s
speech M. L. Jarmon, principal of
the Columbus colored high school,
made a talk. Jarmon declared edi-
tors of negro papers in the cities
would be disappointed to find that
the colored people had not cast the
vote for Ferguson expected of them.
Sam Hamburger presided. Bulling-
ton was introduced by Mayor O. A.

the league of nations, but said Italy
would remain a member. He also

Without mentioning France by
name, he made what was interpreted
by the crowd as a challenge to that
nation—whose frontier is only 40
miles west of Turin—in his state-
ment that “Turin has never been
afraid of war.”

PASTOR HEARD IN VOTE CASE
KINGSVILLE, Oct. 23.—The first
case here arising from charges of il-
legal voting in the democratic pri-
maries was brought into court Sat-
urday when Rev. M. D. Council, pas-
tor of the First Methodist church of
Kingsville, was bound over to await
action of the Kleberg County grand
jury next January on charges of
perjury. ’ -
He pleaded not guilty when ar-
raigned before County Judge Ben D.
Wilson and was released under $1,000
The first witness called was Sam
Miller, member of the last grand jury,
who testified that Rev. Mr. Council
appeared voluntarily before the grand
jury and reported that an aged Mexi-
can living near him had voted illegal-
ly in the democratic primary July 23.
Miller said the grand jury investi-
gated and found that the Mexican
had not voted or tried to vote. He
said the grand jury later investigat-
ed warnings distributed among Mex-
ican voters, to ascertain if the cir-
culars were intimidating, and when

gfraiSd jury he denied having any
knowledge of the circulars.

ister formerly lived in Belton.

fied that he and others delivered cir-
culars at Council’s request. C.- C.

testified that Council and two other
men came to his print shop and one
of the men ordered the warnings

father of the boy scout, related that
his son informed him Council told
him he had denied having knowledge
of the circulars, when he testified be-
fore the grand jury, and asked the
boy not to say anything about it. He
said his son told him he replied to
Council that if called before the grand
jury he would tell the truth.

BOULDER CITY, Nev., Oct. 22.—
The mighty Colorado River in the
period of its weakness—low water—is
about to be turned by the hand of
man from the bed it has formed in
carving a mile deep channel.
Excavation work was under way
Saturday at the intake of diversion
tunnel No. 4, which within a month
will divert the river through a can-
yon wall. The diversion tunnel to be
first used is on the Arizona side, one
of four great tunnels 50 feet in diam-
eter and nearly a mile long, two
being on each side of the river.
When the Colorado is sent through
the tunnel, it will leave a section of
riverbed nearly a mile long which
engineers will scour down to bedrock
and then lay foundations for the Hoo-
ver Dam—largest 'Structure of its
kind in the world.
The woman’s missionary society of
the Methodist church will meet Tues
day afternoon at 3:30 o’clock, with
Mrs. W. H. Walton. The topic for

May all who can be present at this
Presbyterian auxiliary will meet
with Mrs. Bryan Casbeer, Tuesday
afternoon 3 o’clock. All members
and friends are urged to be present.
CHICAGO, 111., Oct. 22.—Chicago
gangs, disintegrating since A1 Ca-

at war among themselves.
Six men have died under assassins’

six as gang killings and the motive
in each case as keeping down com-
Gangsters, their illicit revenue cut
to a new low figure, are battling to
keep outsiders from muscling in, to
keep out interlopers from other di-
visions of the underworld and they
are double-crossing. each other when
a few extra dollars are at stake.
“We have been expecting this,” a
police official said. “Too many new
names have cropped up in the gangs
lately; too many newcomers have been
stirring up trouble.”
The alcohol dealers and the whisky
bootleggers, selling at cut rates to a
clientele that can not afford to drink
as much as formerly, meet the intru-
sion with threats, assaults or one-
Proceeds from vice and gambling
are at low ebb. Gangsters who used
to live in luxury,- when Capone was
dictator and kept out the small fry
and when people spent money freely,
now are behind with their rent and
have to economize on clothes like the
average law abiding citizen does.
Comparison of liquor prices tells
the story in figures. Not long ago, a
case of whisky of good grade, run
in from Canada, cost from $75 to
$125. Now the same grade can be
bought for $41 a case, if the pur-
chaser picks it up from a distribut-
ing point, or at a top price of $60

Mrs. R. L- West, of Huntsville,

and I kept losing weight. I grew
nervous over my condition—this was
unusual for me, for I am very cheer-
ful when I am well and don t easily
get nervous. I knew I ought to taka
something. My aunt told me I ought
to try Cardui, which I did. I began
to feel better. I kept it up until I
had taken three or four bottles. My
side quit hurting and I was soon
feeling strong and well.
