He one of the War horses in the prohibition ranks in this Section of the state and is known As one of the leading citizens of Limestone county where he is held in highest esteem because of Hia Sterling of citizenship and his Fine Char att Limestone county will be fortunate in securing his services in the state Law making body according to Many who Are campaigning for him. San Antonio july youths of the Jellybean Type jumped on the rear of a Street a Here and pulled the trolly Frera he wire As a prank almost causing a riot Call to the police. A woman seated on her front porch saw the lights go out on the car and thinking bandits were at for Mexia i will gasoline buyers protest against discrimination keys tells of lady who protests arrest tacking the car she screamed.

The contests Are expected to be close and exciting gasoline Consumers by the millions in Texas Are Grumbl they have a right to. They Are being discriminated ing and Gamst. Now comes the news that the Magnolia has slashed the pice of crude Petroleum another Quarter of a Dollar. Mexia find Powell crude under the posting of this company has thus been Cut Down to per barrel. But the Price of Magnolia gasoline has not been Cut commensurately with the lower Price of crude. Of nil the Brazen effrontery and High handed hold ups the Magnolia first place however closely it May be Fol Luede by other companies that Purchase crude Oil and sell re products. Men and women went to the polls in Texas saturday to for a new governor and a legislature and a Railroad Mission and new members of the courts of the state. The peo 1-ie have so far succeeded pretty Well in electing Good men to am the state but in recent years the Magnolia and certain other companies operating in Texas refused to come with Ai the scope of the people s Rule. How in the world nearly every thing under the aim can be regulated and the people protected except the Magnolia company is a mystery that is hard for the purchasers of gasoline to understand in the state of Texas. Gasoline is Selling Only about two cents less in Mexia now than it was when crude was per barrel instead of although the Magnolia is usually the first to slash the Price of crude it is a laggard when it comes to reducing the Price of Why gasoline should Cost As much when crude is cheap As it does when crude is High is beyond the comprehension of the average Man and woman and thet a Are they who number millions in Texas who buy gasoline and win Are therefore concerned about the situation. Is the state going to it Supi Nely by and permit this domination of the people and tax payers and folks who build Texas by the special interests represented in such companies As the Magnolia the question is what can be done and the answer nearly always comes Back the companies seem to be a Law they Aie not inspired with any motive in the to ill but to get the Oil and then get the Gold for it. Much is being said in civic clubs such As the Lions club the rotary club and the Kiv Vanis club and others about serv ice above self and about placing the Golden Rule in business. These clubs would do Well to get a hold of some of the officials of these big oppressive corporations that Are reckless of their i patrons Good mid think Only of piling up profits at the peo ple s expense. The stale of Texas does not get the Benefit of a reduction n1 crude in any my Nisei whatsoever. The Gross production tax to i be state amounts to 2 per cent. Crude is per barrel the state gets twice As much As it does when it s per bar h l. According to the latest figures of the average daily yield it the state the difference lost to the state by the cutting Al most in two of the Price of crude amounts to about t uly. The state is getting now according to these figures i bout than it did when crude was per barrel in Mem and Powell. This would pile up around lost by the state in revenues from the Gross production tax and the purchasing and refining companies simply add that much crore to their pro hts. For the so far is that the millions Al Auto hts in the state do not share in the reduction. There May be those can give a Good answer to Why Jas Louie should Cost just about As much when the raw pro ducts from which it made is per barrel As when it is per barrel. If there Are Mich the gasoline Consumers of the state would be glad to hear about it. There s lots of funny things about the game which ocl t tuners in Mexia who have resided Here throughout the Oil Boom peiio4 have never been Able to solve. Here right at the source of the biggest yield of crude Oil in Texas the gasoline Consumers have had to pay More for Gas Oline generally speaking than any City in Texas. Why men and women driving irom Here to Waco have been known to leave the town with just a few Gallons of Gas promising to fill up at Prairie Hill fourteen Miles from any Railroad where Gas was cheaper than it was right Here in the Golden Lane. But. Thin is not a Mexia proposition alone. It is a proposition for All texans to consider. Let crude products fall to fifty tents a barrel if Over production or the Law of Supply and de Mand warrants it but when it so Des Down let the Price for come Down with it. W. J. Peeling in calling on i. W keys recently when they were exchanging yarns about their vacation travels was told by or. Keys that while he was in Kentucky he saw a Joung lady called before the bar of Justice in a town in his former state. Evidently the Young lady had been driving along sedately until she came to an irresistible stretch of smooth an efficient motor cop Rode along her Side and called on her to halt.
