irom The News: "The way to
win in politics is to eet on the.
right side and tell it. The way to

and defend it." Then the Post
adds: "So far, so good; now, if
you please, which is the right
side?" The Post will find out if
it will keep on reading The

Hon. G. B. 'Gerald as stated in
a card a few days ago is a candi
date for congress for the district
in which McLennan county is lo
cated be that district arranged as
it may. There is not the least
indication as yet what district
McLennan county will be in, nor
is there any indication as to the
other counties to compose it.
Judge Gerald however pur
poses to make the race
against the field even if he does
not know at this time its metes
and bounds orthe personnel of the
opposition. He has not begun
his canvass yet but his speech two
years a&o so far as it dealt with
questions of national import can
perhaps be -taken as a predicate.
His views then expressed were
sound and met with general ap
proval. There are of course ques
tions which have come to the
. . ... . .
iront since tnat time upon
which it is. 'necessary for him to
give expression, but Judge Ger
ald is not a man who is afraid of
any question of general or party
principles cr policy and he will
spleak no uncertain sound when
the time comes.
A OAT'S WORK AT WASHINGTON.
Senator Cockerell of Missouri,
and Representee O'Neill of Mas
sachusetts, have aroused the ire
of the department clerks by intro
ducing bills in their respective
houses requiring clerks to work
eight hours a day instead of six
and a half as fixed by the heads
of the departments. The Times
Democrat in the course of an edi
torial Says: "The senators arc
greatly divided on this subject of
exacting more work from the
clerks; and, notwithstanding the
production of irrefutable figures
showing that by increasing the
day's work to eight hours instead
of the present six and a half an
expense of between $300,000 and
$400,000" would be annually saved
to the country, the probabilities
are that the bill will be
defeated in the senate. Senator
Teller, of Colorado, has made him
self the champion of the clerks in
opposing the measure; and such
pitiful pictures of poor, over
wrought and aching brains and of
an intelligent work in conse
quence, docs he conjure up as
sure to result from the proposed
excessive work, that senatorial
sympathy is greatly on his side
and that the bill stands but a
meagre chance of passing. Eight
hours is not too much for any
man or woman to work each day.
Farmers work on an average
about twelve hours a day the
year round and men in some of
the professions do even more.
Of course the shorter the day the
larger the number of employes
required at the capital and as this
constitutes one of very desirable
political pulls it is not likely that
any reformation can be hoped for

These important dooisions, firmly
establish tho porsonal responsibility of
omcers and directors ot oorporato or
banking institutions in Texas and
should reooivo the careful considera
tion of mcrohants and business men
generally. This responsibility oannot
bo avoided by tho ploa of ignoranco of
tho affairs of the bank or company
they represent, and if supposed yoarly
examinations of tho books aro careless
ly, indifferently, or falsely made,
wheroby said direotors and tho public
aro deceived as to tho truo oondition
of affairs, thoy are not exousod or held
less liablo, and tho depositors and
stockholders who aro losers thereby
oan recover. Audits and examina
tions of books of a company or corpo
ration should bo mado by special and
disinterested accountants, of estab
lished reputation in their businoss,
for tho benefit and protection of
officers, direotors, stockholders, and
tho publio generally.
