That meeting at Dallas Tjcsday
means a groat deal to Texa3. It
means that there is yoing to bo a Hogg
killing time right in tho heat of sum
mer. With three artesian natatoriums in
Waco there will bo no excuse for
any ore coming to tho Geyser City
without seeing, drinking and bathing
in tho great elixir of life.
Judging by tho complimentary
clippings in this week's Courior-Jour-nal
Henry Watterson's presidential
boom doesn't only wear pants, but
has great shaggy whiskers.
The Texas sugar industry must
find it pretty tough competing with
tho sugar industry of other state
now, since tho other States get ag
bounty of 2o a pound and Texas gets
nothing. Don't you ask us why TexaB
gets no bounty, ask Governor Hogg.
Somervoll county Democrats mot
at Glen Hose Saturday and instruotcd
their representatives for R. Q Mills
for senator. Tho ropnrt says Culber
in's friends wero there but there was
jl deficit. The Somervell Democrats
probably never thought of Horace at
all Thoro won't be any name in it
Tho Paris Herald says : "It iB said
that Gov. Boies voted for Blaine in
IS84. If this bo true his conversion
to the cause of Democracy is too ro
cent to make a desirable oandidatc
for president." He might do for the
tail of the tiokct. If after election
the tail got to wagging with Repub
lican propensity, tho presidont could
chop it off with his veto.
Tho communication of Mr. DoVany
in our news columns, may be worthy
of serious consideration. A man who
could savo 15,000 out of f75,000 in
vested in tho eastern Texas iron oro
country if the Bhot gun rulo provailcd
cs is charged might bo a goid man to
tio to but tho businoss mon of Waco
would want to know under what pro
vocation tho Bhot gun business oauie
in. Our correspondent is altogothor
Trm News has pleaded for months
with tho capitalists of Waco to utilize
tho artesian hot water to be found no
whero else in tho world, as au adver
tisement of tho city. Our hopes are
about to be realized. The Waco Na
tatorium to be built by Col. Parrott
and his company and another institu
tion of the same sort by Mr J K Rose
and his company are sure enough
realties and The News is glad.
There will bo abundance of business
for all of them.
The associated press reports from
Washington yesterday with reference
to tho oandidaoy of Senator Hill are
intended to create the impression that
Hill is not scheming for tho nomina
tion himself but just trying to beat
Clovoland out of it That's
too thin, Hill knows very woll
his only ohance for a nomination
is to forco through the maohino at his
command in Now l'ork, and ho is
working it lor all there is in it. It is
a bold stroko that Hill thinks may
win, but for onoo ho will bo balked.
A FREE FOR ALL RACE,
The spring timo will soon be upon
us and, of course, tho oaudidatcs will
bud out as usual. Tho question as to
what method the Domoorots will adopt
to select their candidates is an import
ant one, and should be discussed
freely and sottlcd now pretty
soon. Tho primary election has
been growing less popular year by
year as its evils multiply, and its
frauds incrcaso in boldness and thcro
is altogether too much prejudice
against conventions. As between
tho two The News would prefer 11
tree for all raoo for county and pre
cinct officers. The News was oppos
ed to tho primary oleotionin 1S00 and
offered a feasiblo plan for a conven
tion but a majority of tho Democrats
in McLennan county wero
ovidently in favor of a
primary and Tun News aooopted tho
situation. Tho frauds so palpablo in
that elootion wero spoken of at tho
timo by hosts of good oitizons and tho
majority of those spoken to about it
expressed a prefcronoe for a frco for
all raoo next timo. The News re
members the sentiment very distinotly
and desires now to call attention to
tho same as the question
must bo decided by tho oxeoutive
committee before long. The News
submits that that sentiment which re
fleotod the views of tho most promi
nont Democrats in the party at the
time tho evils of the primxry system
woro apparent in all thoir
flagranoy is the best ovidonco
of what ought to bo tho son
timent of the party at this time, when
another election is at hand. We de
sire to bo understood as being willing
to submit as we did before to tho de
cision of tho executive committee
whatevor that may be and only sug
gesttho free-for-all race to preopi
tate discussion at tho same timo desir
ing to bo known as candidly in favor
of that method of oleoting tho county
and precinct ticket.
THE PERFECT MEDIUM.
The Austin SaateBman siys: "Rich
ard Mansfield, tho aotor, has aban
doned the bulletin boards and dead
walls as a means of advertising and
confines himself to tho newspapers."
Then follows a roasting of the busi
ness men for spending their money in
fake advertisements, after which the
horo "Tis but ono perfect advertis
ing medium, and that is tho homo
newspaper. It is the one immigration
agent that can always be depended
upon, that is always at work, that
never misrepresents things, that gives
a fair reflection of everyday life, of
improvements and new enterprises.
Moreovor, instead of being looked at
once and then dropped and ignored,
it goes again and again, every day or
every week, the wholo year round.
It comes to bo troated as a welcome
visitor. The strange names in it bo
come familiar, and it accomplishes a
work no pamphlet or foreign advertiser
At a meeting of tho Southern
Press Association in Atlanta, Ga , the
delegates woro polled for president.
It was nip and tuck between Hill
Gorman and non-committal, and
Clevoland got 10 votes out of 19.

Freight Agent Ilinton of tho Texas and
Pacific arrived fiom St. Louis Monday
and bus left for Dallas. Mr.
Ilinton attended the meeting of tho
Southern Railway and Steamship asso
ciation, which discust-ed among other
things, Mexican rates. "Mexican busi
ness," said Mr. Ilinton, "is only .settled
in so far that interior lines will pay no
uttention to Mobile and Tampico eoinpo
tition.fc In tho matter of shiinkago, we
have nuido up our minds to insist upon
reasonable division!) with American
lines and will not consent to be imposed
upon any further. I look upon reci
procity and absolute fico trade as almost
assured within the next fow years."
With reference to Galveston securing
better port rates, etc., than Now Orleans,
he said: "Our only aim is to put Gal
veston and New Orleans on parity as to
rates, and think that Galveston should
publicly assert her ability and hold her
own upon an even plane with other
ports and not ask railroads to assumo
any part of her disability which she has
advertised so freely."
ViCKSinma, Miss., Feb. 4. Efforts to

James Hill of this city are about to como

tificates havo been prepared and will be
forwarded to Washington certifying
that Hill is not at present a registered
qualified voter, and was never assessed
as such, though he has paid pell taxes
for tho years 1S89 and 1890. It
is generally believed that the Bruce and
