Hon. H. P. Brown of Johnson
county was next introduced, and de
livered one of tho most eloquont and
telling speeches over dolivered in
Waco. It was short but was every
word and sentence appreciated and
Mr. Lessing named Major Goroo as
a man who was embarrassed by a con
federate record and loud calls brought
that gentleman to tho rostrum. His
speech was interesting and was libe
At tho conclusion of Major Goree's
spoeoh Judge Aldridgc of
Dallas was discovered in
tho audience and the audience went
wild with oallsj for Aldridgo. Tho
speech of Judge Aldridgc was mas
terly, and like his speech at Dallas,
was an appeal to the reason and com
mon sonso of tho peoplo and tho ap
plause was almost continuous. In tho
courso of his speech ho alluded to tho
speech of G. B. Gorald before tho
houso of representatives on tho Inter
national and Great Northern receiver
ship case as the grandest phillippics
over delivorod in tho' capital of Texas.
This splendid compliment to Waco's

loud and vociferous applause
whioh was continued for full threo

a delegate just above the Clark badgo.
General Geo. B. Zimploman was
called out and after disclaiming any

and denied that the present governor
had so administered it.
Capt. 0. M. Itogors of Travis
county, candidate for lieutenant gov
ernor on tho Clark ticket, was called
and ontortained tho audionco in a very
acceptable manner. Somebody called

a short talk.

When ordor was restored, which was
only after somo of tho most enthusi

when tho son of the old hero
of San Jacinto was named
pandimonium roigned again. Gen

man who was oleoted unanimously
and tho Hon. Templo Houston an

friends of his confidence in them and
tho causo ho was representing.
Judgo Clark spoko as followers:
My Fellow Citizens: I wish I
