Who is tho acting governor whilo
Hogg is ropenting tho Temll spoech?

party down, every litt'eism is piok,

Private Seorotary Levy is doubtless

Whon tho Democrats went to their
convention in Dallas county Saturday,

Hogg is said to wear the largest hat
worn in Texas, but tho gray matter it

will be attended to. It should not

Gov. Hogg sticks to his text whloh
is "Hogg and nobody but Hogg," by
avoiding any mention whatever of the
candidates now in the race against
him. Ho says ho just won't call
Hogg claims all tho blessings de
rived from tho Ross administration
and charges all tho ills we bear to
tho failure of Barring Bros, of Lon

Ain't he a dodger?
Of tho $12,355,000 capital reported
in the Manufacturers' Record April
22d, invested in southern enterprises
in eleven states, Texas got only $210,
000, or the fifth-ninth part of the
whole, when it should have gotten
one dollar out of every eleven. Texas
should have gotten 1,214,090, or
$1,004,090 more than she did get.
"Somebody has blundered."
Farmer Shaw of "Newspaper harlot"
fame is perhaps the best authority on
that class of newspapers in existence
today. Ho danced around the Wind
sor in Dallas whon George Claok and
his friends were thero on a certain day
until ho found out thero was no "pie"
in it then hied himself to Austin and
forthwith began to swallow everything
ho had said against Hogg.
The News does not believe Qeorgo
Clack is the only man in Texas who
would make a good governor, but he is
tho only one in tho raco who would
and there is no man in the state who
would mBko a bettor governor. He is
tho only man willing to make tho raoe
who can beat Hogg and knowing him
to be possossed of those qualities
whioh preeminently Gt him for an ablo
governor The News gives
him its unqualified support.
Thero is not another man
in Texas with any show of success who
would have undertaken the task of
beating Hogg even to free .Texas.
This bMng true Tmc News beliovos
it is tho duty of every man and nows
japer in the state who is opposed to
Hogg and believes Judge Clark "hon
est and oapablo" to rally to his sup
port oven if they do think thero are
other men who would make good
Governors. Tho man who makes tho
fight for Texas should bo rewarded by
tho undivided support of thoso who
think Hogg ought to be defeated.
THE ISSUE IS DEMOCRACY VS. SOCIAL
ISM. Our Demooratio frionds aro rally
ing to tho principles of Demooraoy in
an earnest straightforward nunner all
over tho state and the issue is now
forced upen the champions of official
spoils. In every county almost the
friends of Judgo Clark have taken up
tho bedragglnd banner of puro and
undefiled Demooraoy and tho indioa
tions aro that Texas is really and truly
Demooratio in theory though not
so overwhelmingly so in
theorv as it has beon
in practical partisanship. The
olamor for a statute for every wrong
real or imaginary has turnrd the
heads of some, but there is yet enough
ot the old guard to preserve the
oherished principles of tho Democratic
party. Hero aro the specimens ol
the expressions almost daily in some
locality in Texas. Tho Luling Demo
"Wo believe that in matters of
legislation affecting the liberties of the
people, in their personal or property
rights, the constitution of our gov
ernment should bo strictly construed,
and no rights or privileges granted
thereby should in any way bo ta'con
from tho peoplo by legislation or
otherwise, but that tho same should bo
faithfully and sacredly guarded, that
we may maintain for ourselves and
perpetuate to our posterity a pure and
free Republican form of government,
with all the rights and privileges
transmitted to us by ourforefathers"-

governs least and whioh abiidge least

buch is the effect of tho call for a
halt cminating from Hon. George
Clark and his chivalrous, patrotio fol
lowers all ovor Texas and their cause
will be the winning oauso. Tho Demo
crats of Texas have never yot failed
to rally to the defense of these princi
ples when thoy were shown to be in
danger. The song of the socialist set
to a Democntio tune two years ago
fooled some ot our people, but the
true character of the protended re
form was made manifest by the ants of
the Twenty-second legislature and
tho dangerous attitude of the present
governor that made it the imperative
duty of every patriotio Texan to join
the hosts that carry the banner of
pure Amerioan freedom and purpose
storming the battlements-
of aggrandized officialism and
strike from tho limbs of Texis the
shaokles that bind her. Governor
Hogg oomes before us with the as
tounding claim that he alone can save
the liberties of this people. Tho Czar
of Russia could or would claim no
more, but he as a result of acknowl
edged power beheads or banishes
those who daro question that claim
This is no ordinary campaign, en
trenched behind the power of offioial
patronago Hogg has an advantage
that can only bo appreciated by those
who come in oontaot with bis office
holders whoso aggregated salaries aro
more than $1,000,000 These people
are spending froely the money paid
them out of the state treasury, gath
ered from every olasa of oitizons
spending it to petuate the power they
have usurped. Hogg himself is not
only himself spending his salary paid
to him out of a fund gathered from
tho Clark men and all other anti-Hogg
men as well as from his followers, in
campaigning for re-olection, but
ho has left his office, presumably in
the hands ot his private seorotary

to defend a single act of which com
plaint is made. Away with snch a

will wager ho never leaves hisoffico to
defend himself. Ho will need no de
fense. We present today tho vote for Gov
ernor Hogg at each voting place in
the county. Tho figures aro astonish
ingly low, little more than half the
vote polled by Sul Ross in 1888. It
will bo observed that Moody polled a
largor vote than any other place in
tho county, not excepting the Waco
ward polls. As a result cf this indif
ference on the part of the peoplo the
representation of tho various voting
precincts in the oounty oonvo&ticn is
reduced many of thorn to one dele

state convention is reduced noarly one
