Fort Worth, l'ox., Miy 1!), To
Tho News Tho tditoriai in this
xnoriiirjg's Novtb in reiurenco to oppo
sition to Senator Mills' eleotion to tho
long term is timely aad full of meaty
suggestions. Bat Tho N'cwa repre
sentntive is wide of the mark whon he
states that twenty-four men in Texas
.know of the secret but formidably or
ganizing opposition to tho election of
Col. Mills to tho loig term. Every
man who was in the tbiolc of tho
fight for Mills' election at tho extra ses
sion knows of the opposition. The main
cause assigned by loading alliance men
for their opposition to Judga Clark is
that "Clhik jumped into tho arena
carrying Mills fl" and organized the
party to instruct for Mills." To get
this opposition allayoa Clark's advo
cates have promised that Miss would
come homo and demonstrate to the
people that he had been oonsistent
and was truo to tho D unooratio
doctrine of universal ooinago of
silver. It is well understood that Col.
Mills is listening to the appeals of his
lte enemies not to oomo home and
take part in the gubernatorial fight.
Nobody wishes him to take part in tho
gubernatorial fight, but his sinocre
friends want him to meet theso dis
contented peoplo and save himself.
It is a bi;r mistake to supposo that
Oiark needs Mills' help. It is ontiroly
tho otl er way, judging from what old-
time Democratic farmeru tell me. In
reference to Mills taking any part in
the gubernatorial light 1 consider it a
matter to be left ontiroly to Col. Mills.
Clark and his friends never stopped
to ascertain policy nor to oount tho
cost whon thoy opened the fight for
Mills. If Mills hesitates or dodgeB
tho fight of and for his friends it is
simply his business. It is suffioiont to
Inow that Clark and his frionds have
in every fight boon ablo to take earo
of themselves. But it is a faot that
the third party aro solidly planning to
Chpturo the legislature with tho ohiof
purposo of defeating Mills. They do
olare they will yield, everything to
accomplish his defeat and they aro
effectively at work in my neok of the
woodB. 'lhe day is past wnen any
politician is "sfely ombalmed in the
hearts of his countrymen."

llotiBTON.Tex., May IS. Mr. l S.
Banner has received answero to a
communication sont out to all the
ogunts of tho Houston and Texas
Contrai road. They were answers to
the following chargo by Governor
Hogg in his Donison speech:
Numbors of railroad men have assu -od
mo that they wcro for mo but thoy
dared not express their sontiraonts.
Numbers of them hayo written to mo
wisning mo well in this campaign.
Thev are afraid to open their mouths.
I hopo to livo to see the day when a
man can go up to tho polls in this
country and vote an open ballot with
out endangering his means of sub
sistence. Down in South Texas tho
railroad men and darkies havo organiz
ed anti-commission clubs, and now
they aro trying to fool tho white
folks. This must bo tho way thoy
expect to turn Texas loose.
Governor Hogg, in answering a
question in his specoh recently inado
here, said it was an agent of tho
Houston and Texas Central road to
whom he referred. The matter was
taken up by Mr. Banner and denying
answers have beon received from all o
them. It now becomes a question of
voracity botween tho governor and the
agents. Following are specimens of
tho answers received:

Many persons ask the question why
it is that when an alarm of fire is turn
ed on that all the department turns
out. In conversation with Chief Pres
cott he informed a News reporter that
it was done as a saity in case of acci
dent to either of the companies. The
companies have little to do and it
keeps them in training. In case of a
fire the East Waco company comes
over and reports to the chief who
sends them to the Central station to
await orders. If anything should hap
pen to either of the companies at
work, or if the fire was gaining bead
way it could easily bo called A full
explanation was made to the council
by Mr. Prescott and his action in the
matter was ldlly endorsed by the
council as being well taken. Mr.
Prescott goes on the theory that "an
ounce of preventative is worth a
pound of euro."
