S. Lattimorc and F. L. Hawkins of the Texas court of criminal appeals had re-fused to accept an application for a writ of habeas corpus tendered them by Miss Camille Openshaw, Houston, attorney for Hamilton.

Most members agreed tiie important thing was to complete ac’tion on the appropriation blli.s, with every likelihood of accompUsliment  The senate put the judiciary bill out of tiie way by adopting a coii-ferenre report providing $3.898.2.56 for the biennium, about $1.5,000 lesa than the current appropriation The  .See I EGL'-’LAHTH .
