Waoo, April 19, 1892.
About 100 of tho visitors from
Waco returned from Lorena yesterday
on the 8 o'olook train but there wero
enough left to make up one of the
liveliest assemblies you ever saw.
After dinner was over and every
body had received the nourishment
necessary to mnke even a politician
happy Judgo Gerald was introduced
and made a speech forty five minutes
long which was well received and en
dorsed by nearly every man on the
ground. He was follawed by Mr.
E. L. Antoncy of Cameron also a can
didate for congress who made a
magnilicont speech Mr. Antoney
won many friends. He only asked for
sooond ohoice conceding Judge
Gerald's county to him as long as he
was in tho race.
There was an effort made by some
of the third party men near Bruooville
to put up a burlesque procession com
posed of old, poor horses dragging
broken down wagons and plows with
devisivc legions and banners gotten
up for the purpose of bringing appro
brium upon the Dsmocrats who had
gathered there to honor their candi
date for governor. The purpose of
these people was reported to the 00m
mittee ot arrangements and two or
throe of them went out oh a hunt
Thursday evening for the parties re
sponsible for it having been informod
such a thing was on loot. They could
not find a man who would acknowl
edge that ho knew anything about it
and tho committee went to work Fri
day morning preparing for their
entertainment, keeping a lookout for
tho third party procession. The
procession came as far as tho
town of Lorena, one mile
from tho picnic grounds and thero it
was met by a committee of Demo
crats and notified that they would
not bo permitted to go upon the pic
nio grounds. They had a United
States flag flowing from a pole and
thoy kicked becauso "they were not al
lowed to carry tho United States 11 ig
to the picnic grounds." Of courso,
tho flag was brought along for the pur
poso of heading oil all objection to
tho progress of the procession, but it
didn't work. Those peoplo who were
engineering that Lorena barbecue had
no notion of allowing any such thing.
They regarded it as an insult to their
wives and daughters and themselves,
and an indignity to the distinguished
gentloman who was there as a Domo
orat by their invitation.
The News is informed that tho
storv is coinc about the streets of
Waco today that tho Clark olub at
Lorena refused to permit thefarme s
of the Bruoevillo neighborhood to
bring tho United States (lags on the
grounds and tho foregoing is reported
that everybody may know the truth
about the'mattor. Mr. 0. A. West
brook is The News authority for what
is said hore in reference to the action
of the Bruceville third party itcs and
his word is as good as any mansi Tho
effort in Waco if there is suoh an
effort, to make capital out of it for
Hogg is in keoping with tho methods
of all men in despair.
With that exception tho barbecue
passed off with the best of feeling and
tho day was hugely enjoyed by tho
people becauso they, or very few of
thorn at least, knew nothing of tho
Peoples party scheme. There wero
people from twenty miles away and
thoy were well pleased with the
spoeoh of Judge Clark and from the
general indications his spoech mado a
good impression upon thoso opposed

after a few hours' drive They spent
tho dav in looking over that promis

Haskell under the chaperonago of
the Hasktl delegation.
The committeo was as royally en

the stay there was very pleasant. The
return trip a Albany was made Thurs
day. The citizens of the latter place
tendered the party a banquet on
Thursday night, which was a most
'I he trip was so enjoyable that the
whole party regretted the at rival ot
Friday morning whon they started on

tended but will not say to which place.
Besides the two towns above men

'to the latter place will pass about mid
way between tho first two mentioned.
