Being a part of Section No. 58. --------
in Block AX, Public School lands heuraof 10 A.
in said Gaines county, Texas, and
described as follows:
SAYS Wife*, ROGERS
* BKVKRLY HILLS.—Well, all I know
la Just what 1 read in the papers, and
what I see as 1 prowl the hinterlands.
Now lets get this Chicago thing
straightened out 1 was out there for a
whole week right here lately, and
talked with everybody that 1 thought
might know something of the real con-
dition as It W out there. Course It was
kinder like Politics, you have to dis-
count about 90 per cent of what each
aide says. But the main thing wa did
find out, and that was that as far as
crime lu proportion to its population,
why It has less than anybodya town.
There has been lota of men killed, but
they have been Gangsters, and 90 per
cent of them have been killed by their
own Clang, not by a rival Gang, Its been
by their own, for some double crossing
and holding out ou their bosses.
You eee they have very elaborate
systems of checking up on you, the
same as any big
business has ot
checking up on
their clerks or em-
ployees, and the
minute they dis-
cover that you are
not banding over all
the “loot" or that
you might be deal-
ing with some rival
they what Is called,
“Put you on the
spot,” that means
you are sentenced,
and If your laet Insurance Is not paid.
It would be well to look Into It, for you
are “not going to be with us long.
You see lots of people think that all
this Racketeering and Bootlegging and
corruption is Just a fly by night affair,
run on a allpshod haphazard way. Well
you never were more wrong in your
life. You know as a matter of fact
there le nothing as old as crookedness.
It started away back when Eve used
i some political and 8*1 influence OS
* poor old Dutfkb Adam A* b‘m U
gnaw on a forbidden Apple. Old Cain
slew Abel, or visa verea, I dont know
which. But anyhow It was a argument
over the Spoils. Meanness haa always
been better organised and conducted
than righteousness. So these Lade
here are really ot an old and ancient
(and sometimes) honorable profession.
There Is no such thing as a little
Bootlegger, no more than there is a
little Banker. The day of the little
Banker in a email town Is past. He ia
a Member of a chain. He Is a subsidi-
ary ot some big Concern. Well thats
what tbie Is. Then look at an expendi-
ture that none of the ot>or basic com-
modities have to meet, and that la Pre-
lection. Talk about a Tariff wall! Why
the tariff is only collected by one
party and thats at ths port of entry.
But with this there is no end of the
collectors who are there to levy trib-
ute. What percent of the cost ot a
bottle, do you tblnk goes to Protection?
Why say there la more collecting than
there is selling.
Another tbing, Its not so much that
Chicago Is such a terrible drinking
place, but It Is the clearing House the
same as they are In the Wheat or
Cattle Market. It comes in here from
Canada, by every known conveyance.
Then its made here lote of It, end Its
cut here. Then it goes out to the vari-
oua branch places for delivery* Well
that's a tremendous business, when
you BUpply America thirst, why you
have been to a supplying. So Ibis gang
thing Is bigger than most people
Now whats going to be done to atop
sin? Well Its as I have said off hand 1
cant think of anything unless the
"Towns best people" quit drinking.
These boys couldent get far If nobody
was buying. Tho demand must be
there to create the market. So thats
all we got to do to stop the whole
thing. It dont seem much does It?
Maby by next week everybody will
have turned decent.
The Senate Just site and waits tUl
they find out what the President wants
so they know how
to vote against him.
Re a good Joke
on ’em If he didn't
let ’em know. For
Instance, If he had
announced that he
was going to let
t li e Wtckersham
committee go and
didn’t want any
more money voted
for 'em, why they
would have voted
them a million dol-
That’s the way Ur. Oboliige used to
&>. He would keep ’em guessing so
long that they voted his way acolden
tally part of the time.
We are a good-natured bunch of
saps Id this country.
When the President is wrong
charge It to Inexperience.
When the tariff Is wrong we laugh
Whqu Congress Is wrong we charge
and South-East Qua ter (8 E 1-4)
of said section No. 58, and also
the following described by inetes
and bounds of said Section No.
Beginning at a point 528 yards
East of the NW corner of the SW
i -4 of said Ruction No. 58, for the
NW corner of this tract;
Thence east a distance of 852
yards to the NE comer of the
SW 1-4 of said Sec. 58, for the
vJE corner of this tract:
Thence South a distance of
880 yards to the SE comer of the
SW 1-4 of said Section for the
SE corner of this tract:
Thence West along the South
line of said Sect ion,a distance of
852 yards, to a point for the SW
corner of this tract;
It lu holStt.
When the Senate Is right we
clare a national hullday.
When a bank falls we let the guy
go start another one.
When enforcement officers can’t
capture It fast enough to fill orders,
that's good business.
Everything is cockeyed, so wliat’i
the use kidding ourselves.
