That anouneement follows the assurance from the city executive committee that the encampment lev ill be called for that date if tho citizens of Austin will pome forward with their subscriptions to the general encampment fund. Having subscribed the necessary amount fcarly In the spring for the encampment, there is no ques-jionlng the fact but that the citizens of Austin will be fcrompt Jn their payments of the same at this writing. The fact that the proper authorities have decided that it Is advisable to hold the encampment in December assures their confidence In the fact that Austin weather Is perfect at all seasons of the year, and therein they will not be disappointed. The fact that the early part of December has about been agreed upon has many advantages to present to those who will be here In attendance upon the encampment and innumerable inducements to the Austin merchants to see that said date is agreed upon. To begin with, the visitors will arrive here in cool weather and will be enabled to enjoy to the fullest measure the pleasures cf the encampment, while at the same time giving them an opportunity of making all their Christmas - purchases In this c.'ty. Thereby the Austin merchant will be a far greater gainer t!an had the encampment been held in the midst of summer. The proposition of holding a mid-winter encampment is ene that has much to commend it and absolutely nothing (objectionable in its general outlines. Let's every one come promptly to the front now and give the necessary cash assurance that the encampment will be called for the early part of December. THE INSURANCE SCANDALS. Nothing hitherto developed in the investigation of the management of insurance companies in New York is so calculated to shock the public and arouse just indignation as the revelations made of the loose manner In which insurance .managers handle the policy-holders' money. The candid admission that many thousands have been used for the purpose of aiding the republican party in polluting the American voter is maue all the worse by the further admission that what was It ft after feeding the political henchmen of the republican party has been loaned to friends without the slightest security or any previous agreement with the people whose money it rightfully was as to what should be done with it. The New York Lif'j Insurance company is a mutual, co-operative institution. Its members regularly contribute money to a common fund for a definite and well known purpose. The officers to whom the custody of this money is confided are strictly limited concerning its distribution. Death losses, surrender values, dividends to policy-holders and the legitimate expenses of administering the common business for these and these alone may the fund be drawn upon. If there is conversion to other purposes, whatever excuses may be put forward and however, glossing the transactions may be attempted, we have the substance of a moral if not a legal misuse of trust funds. John A. Mc-Call and George W. Perkins have no more right to put their hands into the treasury of the New York Life Insurance company to withdraw money for political contributions than they would to withdraw the same money for their own pockets. The money is not theirs to give, and no casuistry Is able to conceal this fact. It is rot to say that the policy-holders would have been agreeable had they known anything of the transaction. They gave no sanction to such proceedings when they became policy-holders In the company, and it is hardly likely that they will agree to such proceedings now or in the future. That which applies in the case of the New York Life seems to apply in the case of tho Equitable and other companies as well, if one is to judge from the admission of the men in charge of said companies. It would seem that the entering wedge Is being driven into the republican party. If they can be cut off from their graft feed in New York they will be unable to control elections any longer. It would seem that the silver lining to the dark clouds of political corruption of the present was the forced withdrawal of the corruption fund that the republican party has drawn from corporate interests for years past. Once the republican party is cut off from its feed it will be powerless to control elections and honesty of purpose, vote and influence will guide the result of American politics. When that i happy day arrives the republicans will step down and out and honesty will guide the national ship. j PASSING j j MOMENTS j -,--.--... -a THE STAR IN THE WEST. The world has last its old content; With girded loins and nervous hands The age leads on; her sharp commands Rings over plains and tablelands Of this wide, watered continent. Who calls the poor in spirit blest? The rich in spirit win their own. Hark to the war's shrill bugles blown; Look to the rippling banner thrown And streaming in the west. Who says the meek inherit here? The earth is theirs whose hands are strong. Work for the night come?, art is long. Onward the keen, stern faces throng Quick-eyed, intent, sincere. Our life has lost its ancient rest. The pale blue flower of peace that grows . By the cottage wall and garden close, j Star in the east, ah, whither goes I This star that leads west? j Arthur Colton in the Atlantic, j News of the.

RAGTIME PHILOSOPHY. Getting rich is not what it ia advertised to be in the prospectuses. The more poetry there is in the courtship, the more prose there is in the married life. The way to make a gitl think she is pretty 13 to tell her all the other ones are noL There is something about a square meal that makes the man who is eating it think he is a mighty good fellow. Family life would be more beautiful than it is in the story books if its history were not written on the shop bills. New York Press. A MOMENT OF FOLLY. "Is your son going back to college?" "Yea," answered Farmer Corntossel, "I'm going to give him another term. He ain't athletic enough yet to do a full day's work in harvest time." Washington Star. Watch and wait for the work on the dam to begin. A Chicago without a strike would be as unnatural as a hades without fire. TAX REFORM WANTED. The city council should sustain the mayor's veto of that city hall ordinance. There come days in politics when skim milk passes for the richest kind of cream. Nan Patterson's picture goes to the "morgue" now, to stay there in all probability. In the matter of hats, the disappearing straws show which way the wind Is blowing. Since Addicks' money stopped talking he seems to have been doing all the talking himself. The merchants' carnival ia something that everybody wants and everybody should have. Boom that merchants' carnival early and late. It is the best thing Austin could possibly have. The Chicago university opens up this fall with a cash balance and plenty of newspaper notices. One of the real proofs that there is no beef trust is that the butcher rnakes his customers pay cash. The new hats for ladies are said to be very expensive. In that case we had better ask to be shown the old ones. That midwinter encampment i3 a cinch if it depends solely upon the Austin subscribers putting up the money. The Insurance scandal very promptly took the front page away from the aftermath of the war correspondents. Austin must get the lion's share of all the cotton of this section, and our merchants should see to it that it comes here. If you want to handle other people's money with impunity, get to be president of a blr life Insurance company. It would eeem as though the very center of frenzied finance was located in the midst of New York insurance circles. Trouble is reported to be brewing in the Balkans once more. It would Beem as though that brewery was being overworked. The political agitator in Texas may think he knows a few things now, but he will learn later that he knows absolutely nothing. A Connecticut judge has just decided that staggering is no proof of Intoxication. Wonder what that judge cons' 's positive? The Railway World thinks the moral of the present large deficit of the federal treasury is that there should be an element of direct taxation introduced into our scheme of revenue. At present we rely very largely on Indirect taxes on commodities. The merit of the high tariff, from the protectionist politician's point of view, is that the taxation it Involves is concealed from its victim. The victim never knows precisely how much of the price of the sugar, the clothes or the knife he buys is tax. But he ought to know. Add to this that the tariff tax is unelastio and uncertain. A surplus or a deficit is always bothering the treasury. On August 31 the deficit was $19,000,000 for the first two months of the fiscal year, and there is no prospect of improvement. The situation points to a revision of the tariff. "At present," says the Railway World, "the main object of the tariff is protection to domestic industry. Revenue is incidental and subsidiary to protection. Schedules, are framed, notto increase imports and swell the treasury receipts, but as far as possible to exclude them. In seasons of extraordinary local demand, with high prices, imports rapidly increase and customs receipts correspondingly advance. Such periods however, are quickly followed by reactions, when, as at present, the country faces the prospect of a deficit and the possibility of a loan to maintain the gold reserve, which will be encroached upon l( the discrepancy between receipts and expenditures continues much longer. It needs no argument to prove that this situation calls for a remedy, and the most obvious one Is in the direction of conservative tariff revision, which will not only produce sufficient revenues, but will relieve our export trade from its present disadvantageous position in competitive markets."

Philadelphia Press", AMONG TEXAS EDITORS Several of the Herald's exchanges are advocating the sending of none but the best men to the legislature The great trouble is that these men can not afford to make the sacrifice that would be demanded of them. The Herald seriously doubts if the very editors who are advocating this would consent to a'.low. their name to be used a candidates for the legislature unless they could be assured that they were certain of defeat, Denison Herald. Dick Wynne should abridge himself and take a seat in the legislature.. Waco Times-Heraid, The more the dear people learn about frenzied finance in New York the more they wonder that they were given so long a time in which to pay their life insurance policies. It would have seemed that the management would have demanded the money in lump sum so as to use it all the faster. That good deacon Baer now proposes to advance the price of coal for the reason that he might run short later in the year. He evidently want3 the consumer to run short of cash right now. And now comes Late Presidential Candidate Judge Parr ker and says that the nation must be protected from graft. How on earth is it to be done? That is the question of moment. The Atlanta Journal says: "We are drinking more beer these days than whisky." Well, wherein does that concern the public? The gubernatorial race in Texas is broadening out until St Is likely to cover the entire state before another six weeks has gone by. M.

Thought maybe that the return to those mint juleps would have some effect on the colonel. A private party offers to pay the debt of Old Mexico. In the event that his proposition is not accepted, let him wire Austin with a similar offer and see what happens to him. Wonder if the president shudders every lime the door bell 'rings for fear that it Is some of the Women's Christian Temperance people coming to ask him questions? The anouneement that the public schools of Austin are overcrowded would Indicate that Roosevelt can find no good cause for complaining about the people of Austin. Visitors to Austin are a unit in saying that the Avenue is now the prettiest street In the south. It came a trifle high, but It looks worth the money just the same. It looks now like the internal revenue department was determined to suppress "the bitters," thereby taking away the last lone hope of the prohibition sections. Some of the New York physicians seem determined not to let Baron Ko-mura escape from this country without undergoing an operation for ap pendicitis. Galveston Tribune. Of course we are not out of the woods yet, but it is certainly cause for congratulation that Texas has so far es caped having even a single case of yellow fever. This speaks volumes for the efficient quarantine methods that have been adopted and lsworth many times more to the state than the thousands of dollars It has cost to maintain deten-lon camps and quarantine guards. Orange Tribune.

Judge Claude Pollard, office assistant attorney general, returned yesterday morning from Beaumont, where he had been regarding the agreement between the state an 1 the oil companies whereby the mutter will be settled out of court except In one provision of the Kennedy Mil. Juds? Pollard brought the agreement back with him, but he said that it will not be made public fit this time. He said th press dispatches sent out from ISeaumor.t do not cover the agreement made. According to the story sent out from Beaumont the oil companies are to par the producers' tax of 1 per cent, but they will not have to pay the tax as pipe line companies or refiners or ialers, when in fact, according to the agreement reached, these companies will have to pay the tax on all provisions of the bill, exeept section 9, which seeks to tax them as wholesale dealers. This section' will be tested in the courts. In other words, the oil companies w ill have to pay the tax as producers, pipe line companies and j refiners. With this agreement reached the twenty-six suits which were filed by the oil companies, enjoining the comptroller, attorney general and state treasurer from collecting the tax, were ordered dismissed and the costs taxed against the oil companies. Six of these suits were dismissed in the Twenty- sixth district court yesterday. They are: Gulf Refining company, J. M. Guf-fey Petroleum company. Lone Acre Oil company, National Oil and Pipe Line company, Heywood Ofl company and the Parafine Oil company. ARTESIAN BELT. Another electric line is to be built ir. Texas. It will run between Fort Worth and Mineral Wells. The articles of incorporation were filed yesterday morning with Secretary of State Shannon, and the new line is to be known as the Fort Worth and Mineral Wells Electric Railway company, with offices at Fort Worth and Mineral Wells. It is the purpose of the promoters to build the line between these two cities, a distance of Fifty-three miles, and it will be constructed from Fort Worth westerly through the counties of Tarrant, Parker and Palo Pinto to Mineral Wells. The capital stock of the new company is $250,000 and the Incorporators are Cicero Smith, D. M. Howard, H. N. Frost, E. J. Waldron and Albert Stevenson. From present indications it will not be long before the state of Texas will be entirely circled wth these intcr-nrlian or elect rio lines. There are now lines built or projected between quite! a number of points, among them being between Houston and Galveston, Dallas and Fort Worth, Bonham and McKin-ney, Sherman and Dallas. DAY NO ACTION TAKEN ON TWO CF THE MATTERS WHICH WERE CONSIDERED. REVENUE OF STATE TO BE GREATLY INCREASED EIGHT OF THE OIL COMPANIES THAT ENJOINED COLLECTION PAID THEIR TAXES INTO COMPTROLLER'S DEPARTMENT. Conditions in West Texas Were Never Better, Says C. Kleberg. Among the visitors at the state house yesterday was C. Kleberg, one of the managers of the Santa Gertruda ranch, owned by Mrs. King, situated 1 near Kineville in the artesian belt of Texas, who is here visiting relatives and friends. He said that the growth of that sec tion of the country during the past year has been truly wonderful, and this is only a beginning, as that section is just now being developed. The town of Kingville, only one year old. has now a population of over 1000 inhabitants and has a waterworks plant, electric light and other modern improvements which generally character izes a city of much larger popula tion. "We have the land, the water and the climate." said Mr. Kleberg, "and all we now need is the people, and this they expect will soon come, as that spot has proved to be one of the gar den spots of Texas. He declared that cattle were never in better shape, and the stockmen in that section do not raise anything but a high breed of stock which always com mands a fine market. NO CHANGE NOW. Appearance of Yellow Fever in North Louisiana Caused Delay. v . t State Health Officer Tabor stated yesterday, in answer to a question, that any probable action which might have been taken looking to a raising of the quarantine against Shreveport, La., would now be delayed, on account of the fact that yellow fever is now reported at points in the northern part of the state. Continuing, Dr. Tabor said he could not see how Texas would be in any way benefited by the raising of the quarantine against Shreveport, and he could readily see how the state could be greatly damaged should the quarantine be raised at present. He declared that no action would be taken on the matter for some time to come. MONEY FOR VETERANS. Next Apportionment Will Show That They Will Get More Cash. It will be the last day of September before an apportionment Is made for the Confederate veterans, and Captain Bolmes, chiet of the pension bureau of the comptroller's department, said yesterday that he could not tell exactly what each of the old soldiers will get until the apportionment is made. It would, however, be quite an increase from the present amount. The amount now received by the pensioners is $3 pep month, or $9 for the quarter. It is now believed that the increased appropriation for the next two years will give the old soldiers for the next quarter $13.50 or $4.50 per month. Captain Bolmes said that the apportionment will be close in that neighborhood. The agreement reached between the attorney general and the twenty-six oil companies which had enjoined the state, whereby the suits are dismissed, will result in swelling the funds of the state treasuryto the tune of about $10,000 and added to about $20,000 wheh has already been collected under the Kennedy bill, will aggregate about $30,000, which the state will derive from this source. This Is, however, for a period from April 17, 1905,. to the quarter endy.ig June 30, 1905. Late yesterday afternoon the taxes from eight of the companies enjoined came rolling into the comptroller's department. The companies that paid yesterday afternoon were the Higglns Oil company. Gulf Refining company, J. M. Guffey Petroleum company, The Sun Pipe Line company, the Parafine Oil company, the Heywood Oil company, National Oil and Pipe Line company and Lone Acre Oil company. The total tax paid by these companies aggregated $5700 The others ar expected to come forward within the next few days. Most of these companies that paid the tax yesterday sent the money In foreign exchange and it had. to be sent back to them as the state does not accept any other than exchange on some Austin bank. The Bid Received. Land Commissioner Terrell gave out the following yesterday afternoon: The state had the south one-half of the north half section 410, cerisnce 1017, A. B. & M., 160 acres in Duval county, valued at $1-50 per acre. Two applicants have each offered $2 per acre for this land. Neither could be accepted 'on account of tie bids. This land will be open for other bids from anyone else as well as the two former applicants until 10 o'clock a m., Friday, October 20, 1905. Those sending applications for this land should write on the envelope enclosing the application as follows:- "To be opened October 20, 1905." Such envelopes will be held unopened until the time named and then the land will be awarded to the one. who offers the highest price above $2 per acre, if no legal obstacle prevents. ' " Legal Examiners' Meeting. The bar examiners for tne Third supreme judicial district are in session in the court of civil appeals. The board has. six applicants before it for licenses to practice law. The applicants are: Will P. Brady, T. J. Hollbrook, D. O. Sehllg and J. W. Moffett. The board consists of Judge C. H. Jenkins ot Brownwood, Judge B. H. Tice of Mar-lin and Judge W G. Barber of San Marcos. Angelina Tax Rolls. The comptroller's department yesterday received the tax rolls of Angelina county. The rolls show a total valuation for 1905 of $4,S87,111, against $4,-313,761 for 1904. This makes an increase of $573,350. The railroad commission yesterday afternoon handed down its decisions on several of the matters which it had up for consideration Tuesday. In the matter of the amendment to commodity tariff applying on beer, the commission fixed the minimum rate at 24 cents per 100 pounds in common point territory and the minimum weight 20,000 pounds on carload shipments from Houston and 26 cents to Galveston. The commission fixed the estimated weights on bananas at sixty-five for single and 130 pounds for double crate1? by express. The proposition before the commission was for sixty and lei) pound for single and double crates. The commission allwed the claim of T. B. Allen and company of Memphis against the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe railway for overcharges in the shipment of lumber from Brookland and Bronson to Galveston The claim amounts to between $600 and $700. The proposition to apply cotton seed meal rates generally to b'ackstrap molasses was dismissed' by the commta- sion. The commission did not decide the proposed rating by express of newspapers, auxiliary print and electrotype plates, nor did it decide the application of the Texas car service and the Houston and Texas Central railway company and other roads to amend the rules relating to demurrage in handling of tank cars for fuel oil. These two propositions are heid in abeyance and Chairman Storey of the commission stated that it may be several days before any action is taken thereon. CHARTERS FILED.
