the matter, and his candidate was

Adraired His Nerve.
Jw-epli Weldon Bailey was born in
Copiah county, Miss., Oct. 6. 1863.
He was a self willed boy and ran
away from home to keel) from going
to school, but after roughing it for
a 1me returned with a chastened
s>)irit and( set to wor-k in eat-nest in
e;aining an edneation. So well did
hie succeed thait lhe wats admhlittedl to
the bar at the age of twenty. A year
later he was a (listrict elector on the
Cleveland andl Hendricks tickt. His
inative cotiity (lid iiot furnish the
field he desired for his talents, how
ever, and an uncle, Joseph Weldon
o'f Philadelphia, sent the young man
money to go to Texas. Bailey huing
out his shingle in Gainesville, Tex.,
in 1885. Dressed in the old time
statesman garb-all of black, with
long coat, how cut vest, white tie,
broad soft hat--and hair hanging be
low his collar, the six foot youth
nade a sensation even in Texas. T'ais
garb had not seemed otut of pla5ce
in Copiah county, but it was a t riffle
exagger-ated for Gainesville. In a sat
loon onelil day a cowvboy made some re-.
marks about the white tie. Bailev
Sid nothing, bt left thle saloon. A
fewv minutes later lie reap)pear-ed wtith
a revolver. He invited any of' the
many cowb)oys present to make fuirth
or remarks abouit the Bailey nteek
wer. None of them accep)ted the
challenge, but they adlmired1 the nerva
of the young lawvyer so much that
they have been whooping it up for
Joe Bailey ever since.
In 188 Mr. Bailey had made enough
of an impression in his adopted state
to be chosen elector at large on the
presidential ticket. Two years later
lie was sent to congress. Hie remain
ed in the house ten years. In 1897
lie was made the democratic candi
(late for speaker and as a conse
quence during the remaining four
years of his service was floor leader
for his party.
In 1896 Bailey way very much op
posed to'the namination of Bryan,
and some of Bryan 's friends stated
that it was because of envy. T(o.
Texan himself said it was because
Biryan was not a democrat, biut a pop
nlist. After the nominiations were
made, however, Mr. Bailey loyally
supported the ticket. HIe wanted to
retire from the hoband fromA p
ties at that time, but his co,nstitueuts
would not permit it.
Believes in Individual Liberty.
President McKinley once invited
Bailey and a nuumber 'of other hose
iiembiers to attend a reception. To
Texas man declined on the groundt
that le did not wanit to) appear in
evening dress. lie resented that
'asliion should dietate to him what
lie should wear at any tinile. He
wanted individual liberty in sartorial
matters as well as in polities, religion
and other things. At that time he
wore tihe saint habiliments winter
aId summer. imlornin g noon, evening,
aInd at all other times so far as
known. Moreover, lie believed that.
lt social life of Washington robbed
publie men of their time, and he
would have none of it. The incident
-aused the independent Texan to be
imade the butt of paragraphers the
t-ountry over. Since then Bailey has
m to be more of a eonformIisL in
ie matter otf togs. lie now aons a
akk coat it lie feels like it, wears
ies of other lies than white, ha-ving
been seen on more than one occasion
n1 a flaming red four-in-liand. and
pv i puts o tie convetitional even
ing outfit on occasion. He also has
his hair Cut in the prevailing mode.
All this shows that Seiator Bailey
is big enough to change his mind
eveu in the matter of clothes, that lie
has recognized the truth that ilde
1endence is not necessarily idiosyn
crasy and that a man can be so in
dependent that lie need not seem so,
at least. to the extent of flauitinl'
it in minor and nonessential tLing.
The biggest thing about Joseph W.
Bailey. and lie railly is a big man inl
spite of some personal flaws, is that
lie sees the fundamental truths ol
the new school of liberty lie; is im
hued with the distinctive spirit 01
Americanism; he is a convert to tl
'ospel of democracy. For example
he has a clear vision of the truth thl
"verlinents do not make men.. I)I

iin- to le done for a people is b
Il them alone. throw them onl theil
W 1 esOUIres and this permit then

lie also sees that favoritismI of ani
vt. either inl tlit making or adnmin
istering of the laws. is the destruic
tion of republican institutions. Ei:
thorough grounding of himself it
tle consti'uti>ui, which lie rega.J
as our political ark of the eovenant,
has been a peculiar strength to Sen
ator Bailey. In that het has caugh
the viewpoinit of the fathers-thla
liberty is law, equally, impartiall,
and justly administered. Now, wihe;
lie sess the farther fact that politica
freedom and industrial despotisn
cannot exist side by side his politica
creed will be %yell nigh impregnable.
Mr. Bailey's rate bill speech is uil
versally admitted to have been one oi
the greatest ever delivered in the sen
ate. The best part of it is that. it
which lie showed that the inuferiol
federal courts hold their powers onl
from econgress. In~ Washington the
