REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON AP- ation, beg leave leave to report same back to the House, with a recommendation that it do pass.

PROPRIATIONS.

Austin, Texas, August 24, 1914.

Hon. Chester H. Terrell, Speaker of the
House of Representatives.

Sir: our Committee on Appropria

WORTHAM, Chairman.

ADJOURNMENT.

On motion of Mr. Humphrey, the tions, to whom was referred House bill House, at 3:40 o'clock p. m., adjourned No. 2, having had same under consider- until 10 o'clock a. m. tomorrow.

of

Don. A. M. Kennedy

Mr. Savage offered the following resolution:

Since the last sine die adjournment of this Legislature the hand of death was laid upon one of the brilliant members of this House and the gentle soul of A. M. Kennedy, on the morning of July 20, 1914, floated o'er the dark river of death.

A. M. Kennedy's life was an inspiration to those upon whom the heavy hand of adversity is placed ere childhood's years have flown. His career should serve as an inspiration for those who seek to consecrate their talents to the cause of the common good. Bereft of his father at a tender age, he struggled upward and onward and unflaggingly to that goal where is to be found ambition imbedded in patriotism.

His first public service was as Secretary of the Twenty-second Senate. He served as secretary of the State Democratic Executive Committee during the trying times when assaults were made with vigor and sometimes venom upon the organized Democracy of this State. He entered the Twenty-sixth and Twenty-seventh Legislatures as a member of the House from Limestone county. He returned as a member of the Twenty-ninth, Thirtieth, Thirty-first and Thirtysecond Legislatures from McLennan county. He was a member of the Thirtythird House from Kerr county and at the time of his death he was a candidate for re-election without opposition from the county of Kerr.

He was elected Speaker of the Thirty-first Legislature.

As a statesman, Mr. Kennedy belonged to the constructive school. Democrat, he dwelt in the house of the fathers of the party.

As a

As a neighbor he was gracious, as a foe he was generous, as a friend he was inspiring.

In the field of forensic endeavor he was a foeman worthy of the most valiant and as a parliamentarian he gave to this House the benefit of his great store of knowledge ungrudgingly.

His life, which ended ere the full fruit of his experience had been gathered by the people of the State of Texas, was one long contest with adversity. Rich in great works, he lived and he died, poor in everything, save good works.

To those who knew him most intimately it is a sweetly solemn thought that he had so lived that when his final summons came he answered as one who drew the purple draperies of his couch about him and lay down to pleasant dreams.

Therefore, it is fitting that a copy of these resolutions, duly signed by the Speaker of this House and attested by the Chief Clerk, be forwarded to his widow; that a page be set apart in the Journal of this House for their publication, and that when the House adjourns today it does so in honor of the memory of its former Speaker, A. M. Kennedy, and it is so ordered.

Signed-Bartley. Broughton, Hill, A. R. Watson, R. R. Williams, Hunter, Schwegmann, Rowell, Penry, Murray, Templeton, Brown, Olander, McKamy, Lewelling, Burmeister, Ross, Humphrey, Bagby, Wortham, Haxthausen, Terrell (Speaker), Long (Chief Clerk), Jordan, Vickers, McAskill, Long, Williams of McLennan, Savage, Tiller, Crisp, Boehmer, Stephens, Barrett of Titus, Thompson, Dickson, Nabours, Russell, Tillotson, Cooper, Low, Robertson, Rich, Kirby, Bruce, Neeley, Macgill, Ridgell, Mendell, Mulcahy.
