That Dick T. Morgan press

The legislature has again be-

It is good to get into action. ^
it is good for the Individual and even better for the community.
THIS TOWN WANTS TO GET INTO ACTION. That means we as In-
dividuals want to get into action for the town We want to get a move on.
The census shows that this country ts increasing in population at the rate
of nearly 2.000.000 per year
These peopfb have to settle some w bore.

Isn't it wonderful how self-
righteous some people get or

boycotted hv some of these self-
righteous ones, well I should
dare to whisper, ai d all because
we dared maintain that the laws
should be impartially enforced.
to themselves privileges they
are not willing to grant toothers.
To differ with their selfish and

crime. A ‘knocker’ with the j

In an advertisement in a paper
coming to pur desk we observed
the following statement under a

only sy-prised 'har they told the

The recent legislature passed
an act, the effect o f which
wotli have been a compromise
\\ith the railroads ot the state,
fixing the passenger rates in the
s*a?e at two and a half cents per
mile. Governor Cruce vetoed
the bill upon the ground that he
did not think it constitutional
and for the further reason that
he did not deem it good policy to
legislate further until the status !
of the state's two-cent constitu-
tional prevision be determined
b> the supreme court of the na-
tion. On y recently the supreme
court has held the two-cen? rates
in several states to b* valid and

out in its case and have the
Ho»k in unction dissolved. The
Governor acted wiselv in vetoing
tie legislative measure.
