EIGHT THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texas EVENING, FESfttrAfcY 6, 1936, ROOSEVELT IN DEFENSE OF, RICHBERG'S POLICIES WASHINGTON, Feb. 6 UP) — Ihc American Federation of Labor swung into its "big push" to organize the auto and steel industries today after President Roosevelt had taken a step widely rfi- fearded as a defense of Donald R. ting on pretty well Jn every respect, i win pay you a visit some time but cannot tell when.

Perry nnd difficulties confront- plexities acln difficulties confronting the empresario: "Pan F?lioe de Austin 14 Oct. 1830 "Dr Brother, "I have the satisfaction of ac- knowledgihg the receipt of yours of 2nd October from New York, you ° f fte 'NATIONAL EMERGENCY' PROCLAMATION IS PLANNED ter yesterday from John Austin stating that the Nelson was at Brnzoria and he was then unload- Richberg, target of A.

I have no house under way for the family—you of L. withdrew from an agreement will get out in the spring and the under 'which it was set up, the board weather will be pleasant, and you became legally non-existent. With . this President Roosevelt disagreed. "When the president renewed the pnto code recently and continued the Wolman board, the wrath of A. F. of L. leaders concentrated on Richberg, chief presidential adviser. They called him a "traitor" to labor and ho replied they wanted him to serve one group rather than the government. ''The president's letter told Ogbum that the Wolman board "is not only functioning to prevent discrimination against employes and otherwise to carry out the purposes of Its creation, but it is engaged also in the very important work of holding elections, whereby through secret ballot, under government supervision, all employes are being given a full and fair opportunity to designate their representatives, choosing them either as individuals, or as representatives of a labor organization." If the government should annul the board's powers, Mr. Roosevelt said, "it would be placed in the position of preventing the emplayes from voting." AUSTIN (Continued from page 1.) with the realization that It must be his own courage, his perseverance, his determination that was to bring success or failure to the vision of a colonized Texas, Meets Failure His first step had met with qua- si-feulure. The "Lively," a schooner carrying part of his first party of colonists, had missed connections with the overland group led by Austin personally, and had. landed on the Brazos river Instead of on the Colorado, keeping with them thp implements, seed and even food desperately needed by ths tourists who came by land. Too, he had gone to Mexico City to obta:n ratification of his father's land grant in his own name, and,, planning to be away four months, had been, forced to remain for almost a year and a half, a pawn in the Mexican fight for Independence fi»m Spanish rule; almost hourly he had expected approval of his claim, and time and again received the endorsement of the administration, only to have it snatched from his hands by an overthrow of government. He had finally received from ths Mexican government validation of his colonization grant, and returned to his colony on the Colorado River to find many had grown impatient of waiting and had returned to the "Old South" with discouraging reports. Other newcomers likewise had either got "cold feet'' and departed or had stayed to grumble. Undaunted, however, ho had patiently laid the foundation for his settlement and ths distribution of land. Colonists, however, had decided to protest the 12 ',{• cents per acre foe they had agreed to pay Austin for ills services in putting through the colonizes scheme, arrf dissension among the ranks was imminent. Indian attacks were ever menacing. Austin was responsible both to the colonists and to the Mexican government, and his position at times was extremely delicate. Letter Expresses Will His letter to his sister was written from his colony at San Felipe rie Austin, and read in part as follows: "Dr Sister "I rec. your kind and affectionate letter the other day and sent It down to Brother—he came "o 8- few days since with his wife nnd is now here—he informs me that he wrote you by way of Orleans just before he left home. "I truly sympathize with you on e loss of your infant—tho I In, have seen so much trouble and misery amongst my fellow beings that I doubt whether we should too deeply grieve.for the departure of innocence from this wretched world. There Is another and a tetter one, to doubt it would be to pbjivert the shadowa which surround us in this life into the most horrible darkness. . . "Brothsr is about engaging in (he mercantile business and I think will soon be able to do an extensive . and profitable one. "I am as yet 0t work at colonization and shall necessarily be ti>xl down Ijere for some time to corne—It is troublesome business retires much more pej'sever- ran set along very well untill some buildings are put up. Emily has feen a new country in times long past and can manage veiy well for a month or two. The fact is I have no one 1 to attend to business and if I undertake to build while I am absent it will cost ten prices. My advice is that you build on the out lots above Williams; in this place on the creek — I think tho situation a healthy one. "Edwards gets the league at the point— thjre was no other way of arranging the thing. The tract between the two creeks I think is the best stock farm in the lower country, and I am clearly of opinion that stock is the best business that can be followed, and if you intend to go into that business the Clear Creek and Dickenson Creek' is the best 'tract you can get. I am very anxious for you to be here. We can soon fix ourselves comfortably — the family will have to undergo some privations the first year. I leave here the day after tomorrow for Saltlllo and shall not be back until June, and I then hops to see you all here In health. I have left my will with S. M. Williams and he has a power of attorney to attend to all my business, there is considerable due me and you can get work and plank etc. without paying money. Also I wish you to begin collecting cattle due me. I think it will be a good plan to bring a Mexican family with me from Saltillo. "I have nothing from Hunter and am very uneasy about him. The Brazos bar is very dangerous— Qfllvston must be the principal port. "Call on Williams for any notes due me or all of thsnv and. use any thing of mine as if it was yours without any kind of reserve. If I live thrpugh these two years, I am done for the balance of my life with all kind of public matters, "The person who takes this is waiting so I will close by wishing you all a safa journey and good health. "farewell "S. P. Austin." Praises Mrs. Holly Yet another letter to Mr. Perry, after he ar.:l MY*. Perry had come to Texas, is I'nterestin'j from several points of view. Mr. and Mrs. Perry had cettled at Chocolate Bayou, and in one note 1 Austin had urged them to remove to Peach Point. In this letter, written from Brazoria, he becomes insistent upon this srore. "Brazorla.. 27, 1831. "Dr Brother: "I rec. yours from Bello and have EDnt all the 1 letters by Mc- Kinncy that I can find there is but one— John opcn'd one wliich i.s the invoice of the goods on board the Dart, he will want it to regulate the manifest. The Dart will be hers tomorrow, also the Elizabith and Wildcat. They all left the mouth this morning — all well and harmoney. Hunter had best come down I think to attend to the goods, tho I do not know what arrangements he made. "As to settling— I left the whole matter to you from the first, and did not urcre you to a.ny one place in particular. I wished you to please yourself— I will now give a positive opinion, which is that you go direct and immediately to Peach Point, or come to this place. The idea of a good, house for this year must be abandoned, log cabins must do— remove all your stock to Peach Point, make com there in the <-«ne brake— let the work at Chocolate go and begin down here at once, and from this time forward make up your mind finally and definitely on the subject — and also keep up your rperits — no low sperits will do in any one as nearly connected to me as you are— It is noticed by others and attributed to the wrong cause. "Mrs. Holly has gone. She and Henry's wife send their love to Emily. Mrs. H. is a DIVINE woman. SV>e will be a neighbor at Peach Point, also Heriyy and Arch- V^ald. I mean to make a little world there of mv own. "Keep up, my Dr Brother— keep up your sperits we will be happy when we are all collected at Peach Point. "Shall be up soon "Stephen." "I have now tnken {t on myself to direct where you ought to settle—think no more, about, it but go to Peach Ppint .and fix some snce and patience than any one caWns or a camp"; and let bvjUd- cun •Jin.agjnt who has not tried Ing alone for this year.

Lrgal analysts declined even to dwlgnnlc what laws might be the foundation of n proclamation. But here arc some of the things President Roosnvelt may do by proclaiming n "national emergency": Invcs'igalcv regulate or prohibit any tr ar.sact.ions (in foreign exchange, transfers of credit and payments by banking- institutions. Lock the same rigid control on the export, hoarding, melting or car marking of gold, silver, bullion or current}' with violators subject to $10.000 fine and 10 years imprisonment, or both. Prescribe limitations on banking business. Halt the use of gold in meeting international balances—the only legal use United States gold now has as money.
