Tho distjiet court room was well
filled last night with tho most en
thusiastic supporters of George Clark
ever yet assemblod.
Just before tho timo for calling the
meeting to order Gen. Felix Robert
son, goneral managor of tho campaign,
mounted tho rostrum and rcoommend
ed.that tho reception intended to bo
givoD Gcorgo Clark on hisroturn home
bo postponed till after Sunday to givo
him timo to rest. Gen. Robortson
spoke very encouragingly of the pro
gress boing made and stated that from
great numbers of lotters rooeivod and
from the comments of tho press wo
had every reason to be enoonriged.
Ho spoko also of tho onthusiastio
Clark meoting, oomposed of represen
tative men, hold at Austin on March
22, and of tho Panhandle and North
and West Texas all being his ardent
The meeting was thon called to
order by Thomas Mooro, chairman,
who addressed the meeting in his
usual jovial stylo and gavo wholesome
advico as to action necessary to bo
taken by tho Waco olub. Hor ecom
mended that a treasurer
and finanoo committeo be
elected and that somo arrange
ments bo mado about getting up
badges. In viow of tho illness of Mrs.
Clark and tho much needed rest of
"Goorge," he suggested that tho pro
posed ovation upon his return be post
poned until somo future timo,
Upon tho request of Capt. M. B.
Davis, tho only secretary present, tho
reading of tho minutes was disponsed
Upon motion of Captain Davis tho
German-Amorioan olub, whioh was
present in a body, was cranted tho
privilege of the floor.
Election .of a treasurer was thon
declared in order.
Messrs. George Willig and Tom F.
Mann were placed in nomination.
Tho former withdrew his namo and
Mr. Mann was unanimously eleoted
Upon motion it was decided that a
finance committee consisting of
twolvo members of the club bo elected.
Tho following gentlemen were
eleoted: Dr. Thomas Moore, George
Diehl, Col. R, B. Parratt, V. W.
Seley, W. R. Dunnica, Kiohard
Downs, W. T. Woodward, Sam San
ger, Eugene Early, A. B. Weslow,
Dr. H. Bohrens, and Judge W. H.
Mr. George Diehl stated that he
had prepared a design for a Clark
badge similar to that gotten up and
adopted by tho Dallas olub bearing
tho inscrption "Turn Texas Looso"
and a cut of Judgo Clark.
Upon motion tho design, color, in
scription and everything oonneoted
with the getting up of the badge
was loft to tho financo committeo.
Judgo Leasing was thon oalled
upon to address the meeting and did
bo enthusiastically and at somo
length. Among other things said he
stated that considerable dirty work
was being done at Austin to dofeat
Judgo Clark but this would not win.
Ho stated that ho had juBt returnod
from Greenville whoro ho had the
pleasuro of hearing "our standard
bearer" address a largo mooting at
tho opera houso whioh has a seating
capacity of moro than 800. On ac
count of the rain and sleet it was sug
gested that tho speaking bo postpon
ed, but considering the foot that the
town was full of tho solid yeomanry
of Hunt oounty; many of
whom had travelled twenty
miles to hear Jndgo Clark,
it was oonoluded that they should
not bo disappointed. Evory orevioo of
the houso was orowded The forti
tude with whioh our gallant leader is
fighting this battle, without a dollar
but what comos from his own pooket
and no speeches in his bobalf, oxoopt
thoso made by himself, is wonderful.
His friends must go to work and holp
to "Turn Texas Loose.'' They are de
scending into the lowest dopthu and
assailing his privato oharaoter, but
there is nothing in the lifo of Georgo
Olark of whioh he neou Do asnamca.
Tho fight is not so inuoh to eleot
Hock as it Ib to dofeat Georgo Clark
for governor. No dark horso, no third
man ehad be permitted to stop in and
roap tho benefits of George Clark's
noble fight. It must bo nogg
or Clark. Terrell has boon
laid out, there is not a sound
spot of hide upon his body to
day. Olark has skiuncd him, annihi
lated him. Farmer Shaw, editor of
tho Texas Farmer, a paper whioh
does nop represent a single farraor in
Toxa9, in every lino, in ovory editorial,
has onpoted and maligned both L'lark
and Hogg. He went down to Austin
a few days ago and left thero with tho
accredited agent of Jamos S. nogg to
moot Judge Olark at Groenvillo and
oppose him. I oamo up on tho train
with him and ho told me ho was going
thero and toll the peoplo that Georgo
Clark hid applied to Gov. E. J. Davis
during his administration for a posi
tion. When ho told me this I told
him I would follow him up and toll
the peoplo that the author of tho ro
port Hod doop down in his throat. Ho
did go to Greenville but did not
This is the kind of warfare being
waged against true, honest, brave
At the conclusion of Judge Les
sing's address, which waB loudly ap
plaudod throughout, a oall was mado for
Hon. D. A. Nunn, who was thought
to bo in tho house. The ohairman in
formed tho assemblage that Mr. Nunn
was at tho Paeifia hotel and not being
well ho thought ho had retired.
Mr. Fred Kingsbury movod that a
oommittoo bo appointed to wait upon
him at his hotel and request his pros
enco before the olub. Carriod. Tho
following committeo was appointed for
that purpose: Messrs. F. H. Kings
bury, John Fall, (tho undortakor),
George Huntor Smith and Capt. E. F.
Mr. Lud Williams was thon oalled
upon to addtcss tho meeting. He
stated that ho was not in a position to
speak, but whilo ho had breath
a voioe and a tonguo to form sen
tences he would stand up and aid by
every means in his powor to "Turn
Toxas looso." There was something
radically wrong in our state govern
ment that required a romody and that
remedy was Georgo Clark.
Mr. Williams made a good speech
and whon ho took his Boat tho chir
man called for more just like it.
Judgo J. J. Kimbrough was oalled
for. Ho said that ho was in favor of
Goorgo Clark for governor. Ho felt
honored at being called upon to ad
dress tho meoting. It is not Clark's
tight alone but tho fight of all of us.
It is not Hogg or Clark, but a fight
for the future prosperity of TexaB
and for good governmont. Capt. M,
B. Davis was next loudly
oalled for and as ho
mounted tho rostrum was
greeted with loud applauBc. Ho stat
ed that ho could write a Utile with a
I oheap pencil but was no speaker. All
present Knew tnat ne uauniea nogg
in the columns of The Day two years
ago, and that ho got firod for it.
Hogg was on tho speakers stand and
he at a table on the east Bido of the
court houso reporting his speech.
Hogg looked at mo and I looked at
Hogg and we both looked at each
other. When ha read my report the
folio ing morning he got hot and I
got fired. He has lost no opportuni
ty to hit him and wished ho had a
ohance to hit him again. Judge
Leasing spoko of calumny, falsehoods
and slander against George Clark.
"Those darts will glanoo as homeles?
from his Bido as the Trojan arrows
from the shiold of Ajax whioh was
woven for him in tho regions below."
I am proad to bo a citizen
of Waco, the homo of suoh a man as
Goorgo Claak, and pioud should all
Texati bo to claim him as ono of her
noblest eons. "Not brighter nor
puror aro hor famous jets of sparkling
water, springing from her hills or
drawn from the depths bolow, than is
tho privato and public oharater of
Goorgo Olark. Tho spoakor hore took
occasion 'to eulogizo Hon. Roger Q.
Mills, and oontinuod: "Whon tho rest
of tho stato'know Olark as well as wo
do tnoy will send him, not to Austin
but to Washington to sot among tho
rulors of tho nation."
Capt. Davis' spoech throughout was
one oontinuo flow of oloquonoo from tho
timo ho first took tho stand till ho de
scended from it, and round after round
of applause garo ovidenco that it met
tho approbation of the hundrods thore
assembled and that it was highly ap
preciated. In response to loud oalls Mr. Will
iam A. Poago next took tho stand.
Ho startod out by telling an exper
ience of his own, in years gone by,
when ho was a young man at a pienio
with Bix young ladies. One
young lady snggeston that as
the party was small and oomposed of
threo preaohors, Bill Poago should go
to sort of average up matters. Afte
so muoh oratory he supposed he wa
callod upon to spoak to average up
matters. He deolared in favor of
George Clark for govemor of Toxas
because he waB a statesman and a
patriot and would hrnak tlin nlmntlnc
rthat bind us and "Turn Toxas Looso."
Mr. Georgo Willig was called for
and aroso to say that ho was for
Georgo Clark first, last and all the
At this point Mr John Fall, ono of
tho committee tent to wait upon Col.
Nunn entered and informed tho
meoting that the coinmittoo had
scon that gontlcman who
had stated that, notwithstanding tho
faot that an undortakor was staring
him in the face, ho would bo on hand
as soon as ho could arise from bed and
make his toilot.
Colonel Nunn appearod in a fow

The distinguished speaker startod
out by saying that ho had not had
moro than four hours Bleep each night
for tho past three nights and wos not
in condition to spoak but was always

I had a disouBsion with Judge
Prendergast in whioh I arguod that

We know now what it is the most
arbitrary and despotio measure over
perpetrated on tho American conti
nent. Every power of govornmont is
centered there legislative oxocutivo

answered. Aftor two months of in

Torrell got upon his mulo and rode
over to Georgetown to attempt to
namo it. Ho oalled it a daysman be
tween tho people and the railroads.
The dictionary says a daysman is an
unpiro, an arbiter, a mediator. Is
this an umpire? An umpire is a dis
interested third party to settlo dis
putes botwoon contending partios.
How docs this fit tho commission law
which gives it power over 9,000 miles
of railroad in Toxas that have no
voico bofore it. It is not a court, an
umpiro or a mediator. It is an irre
sponsible, arbitrary moasuro, an in
strument of modorn despotism. I do

Texas. This is tho oharaoter of tho
