Henry Watterson is a block-head

Gov. Hogg wants a law to prohibit
lhe issuance of frand'ant cry or coun
ty bonds. There is a oonstiutional in
hibition againtB such issuance but
Uov. Hogg didn't kn w it.
If it vero not for the daily papers
St would be impossible to keep the
people posted on campaign new.
Oov. Hogg relies upoa the daily
papers himself, reading as he runs.
It is just possible that Fulton will

Then his boomlet on a wavelet on

But the Hogglet'll be no happier,

Hogg, Terrell & Co charge the
present financial depression to the
failure of the Baring Bros, of London.
The Baring Bros, have never failed,

were embarrassed and the bank of

them from failing.

cussion. The News would have been pleased
to have Gov. Hocg stay in Waco
anhl to-day Tub News intonded to
salt upon the governor this morning
and assure him of its most emphatio
tonsideration. There aro few men so
waited that 'I he News would hositato
to extend a hand of welcome, and
Uov Hogg is not 0110 of them.
Col. Parrots's publication of the re
seipts of the Clark campaign fund and
lhe source from which they came is an
rsample worthy of emulation, and it
is hoped General Hamby will respond
wilh the amount of funds subscribed
to the Hogg campaign and the source
from whonco it came. Don't forget
mount suw scribed by tho extra session
of tho moital twenty-second for the
printing of 10,000 copies of Gov.
Hogg's campaign message.
GOV HOGG'S COMMISSION.
Gov. Hogg said in his CUrksvillo
speech that he was for a plenary
oommission." A plenary commission
is a commission with full and com
plete powor to manage the railroads of
Texas as it seos fit without being re
sponsible to anybody for its aots. It
can mako rates on ono road difleront
from the rates on another road and
both or all tho roads aro compelled to
oarry freight at tlv rate fixed by this
commission whether it pays to do it
or not. Tho commission that Hogg
wants, and ho now has that kind, can
even exempt a road from the commis
sion law while maintaining ratos fixed
according to their own noiion on other
roads. Is it presumed for a moment
that there aro men who will build rail
roads in Texas so long as they are
subject to such unjust treatment?
Men who have money to invest will
not put it in a state where tho law
presumes that they are all oriminals,
and the moment their money is plant
ed hero assumes tho management of
the property without permitting the
owner to have any voice in it at all. If
tho governor and his appointees think
thero are enough railroads in Texas
now, they would not be wise in advo
cating such a polioy. Thero aro other
industries the multiplication of which
is just as necessary to develop the
state as air and water. If the com
miss'on can assume absolute control
of the railroads of tho state without
tho consent of the owners and fix the
rates according to their own sweet
will because, perohance thero had
been in the past some exorbitant rates
charged on some of the roads, wo
could just as well establish a commis
sion to regulate the price of manufac
tures and agricultural products if it is
urged that prices are too high. It
was never contemplated by tho people
who adopted the commission amend
ment, that it should bo the foundation
for a plenary commission. Upon the
contrary when Gov. Hogg was oharg-
ed with favoring that kind of a com
mission his friends everywhere denied
it and he knows and they .know that
the defeat of Hogg would have been
just as certain as the annual levy of
taxes if he had ever said
in 1S90 what ho said at Olarksville.
That ffas the most vital point made in
thediscussionsjin LS9O. Judge Clark
said then, that a commission with ab
solute powor to take the management
of tho riilroads out of the hands of
tho owners was what the agitation
would lead to, and he was met with
the denial that nothing of the sort
was contemplated, that Hogg was just
as much opposed to that sort of a
commission as anybody and that such
undemooratio laws would not be per
mitted to go on the statute book in
Demooratio Texas. We elected Hogg
adopted tho oommission amendment
and when the legislature met it was
1 Hnnn disnnvrred that Hnirf would nnt
, ao ..
jiave any otner kjnd 0f a commission.
The News contends that Gov. Hogg
violated a saored trust committed to
him when ho signed tho present com
mission law. Every man who dues
not believe tho commission should
have absolute power, ought to oppo90
the renomination of Gov. Hogg. It
is a cungerous inovation farught with
injury to tho state beyond repair. An
endorsement of this vicious dootrino
by the ro-elootion of Gov. Hogg would
make farther progress toward the de
velopment of Texas absolutely impos
sible. It is a question of which do wo
lovo best Hogg or Texas." Tho en
dorsement of tho one is a condemna
tion of the othor. To which will you
Thero is now no doubt but that this
will be the most important oampaign
ever fought in Texas. The Demoorats
of Texas have never btfore been in a
positionoven similar to tho one they
now oooupy. Tho party machinery was
never before in the hands of tho ene
mies of its principles, and whilo tlioy
have often fought in tht party ranks
in defense of the faith they have never
had to do battle against the powers
that he. Tho ftato administration has
bo'dly and boastingly violated tho fun
damental principles of Democracy, and
brought rcproaoh upon the party in
Texas Tho administration has at his
command all the politioal machinery
in the state, for whioh ho is indobted
to the San Antonio convention. Ad
ded to this is tho ontiro offioial patro
nage of tho state amounting to over
500 appointees drawing salaries annu
ally to tho amount of perhaps $1,000,
000, in tho aggregate. With ail
these advantages; with tho party
machinery through which to reach tho
people, and 5U0 holpors paid by tho
state to whoop it up for tho governor
with their mouths and their money, it
would seem as though ho could afford
to stay at Austin aud attend to his
official duties, but instead of that wo
are treated to tho spectacle of a gov
ernor making vigorous oanvass plead
ing with the peoplo for a re-nomination.
With tho assistance that the governor
has among thoso who hold positions
under him his canvass is boing pushed
with vim and onergy. It is no small
task to combat this array of interested
workerp, but there is patriotism enough
in tho rank3 of tho untcrrified, un
stained, to carry the banner of puro
Demooracy to viototy.
The congressional oleotion is a very
important event that will be upon us
almost before wo know it. It behooves
the Demoorats to put a Btrong man in
the field for there is going to bo de
termined opposition from the inde
pendent element in tho Niuth district
in this eleotion. MoLonnan county
last Saturday at her primary conven
tions instructed for Judge Gerald, and
will send a solid delegation to the con
gressional convention instructed to
vote for him firBt, last and all the timo.
Judgo Gerald is undoubtedly the
ablest man in tho raoo and would be a
great doal tho strongest Candida's
against the opposition to tho nominee.
There is a large turbulont element in
the Ninth district and while Mills
always had a walk over Mills had a
prestige that no other candidate per
haps will ever have Tho People's
party meets in Waco next Siturday,
the 14th inst ,to nominate a candidato
for congress on the St. Louis plat
form, aud it is believed thoy will put
out a strong man. If they do and tho
Demoorats nominate a weak one tho
seat vacated by Mr. Mills may be filled
by a People's party man. This is
purely speculation, but it is well
enough to speculate this way .some
