(With Apologies to Longfellow )
Tho shades of night wore fulling fast,

Dark panic lowered over head,
Black ruin, far and wido, was spread,
Brave hearts, bereft of hope, went
But Jim kept up the some old sound

In stornest wrath tho people woke.
And as before tho storm ho lied,

The mass meoting of the friends of
Governor Hogg yesterday was pretty
svell attonded and was not wanting in
enthusiasm, The oonduct of the

by four or five Waco men and the
country people who composod at least
nine tenths of the convention submit
ted to everything suggestod, with en
thusiasm. It is all right for a man to
live in the city and dominate a con
vention if ho is a Hogg man. Thoro
Was ono feature in the discussions that
is so silly us to be positively disgust
ing. It is the complaint against the
Clark people for utilizing their major
ity in tho late oounty convention.
The idea that an assembly has not a
right to give expression to whatever it
pleases and transact tho business
brought beforo it according to tho
will of tho majority is absurd and
thero is no use whining about it. If
tho Hogg men had dominated that
convention thoy would have indorsed
the administration, and they would
not kayo given the Clark mon any
quartet. It isn't politics to do that.
Whon a viotory is won in poli ios as
in war the advantage must be follow
ed up and the winner obtain all tho
good to his oauso possible. Tho gen
tlemen who conduotod the mooting
yesterday are well awaro of this but
thoy seek to work upon the prejudices
of tho people iu the oountry in order
to ohrystalize tho opposition to Clark.
They will douctlcsH win somo votes
that way but if you win a mnjority
gontlemcn will you uao it, liko the
Clark men did, or will you permit
jour viotory to bo taken from ou
after it is won? The N'kws desires
to mention right hero the fact that
thero is more intolerance among the
Hogg people than any sot tfpcoplo on
this earth, 1'iib Nkws has nothing
personal against Gov. Hogg or any of
his friends, yet it is the subject of
abuse, booause it opjosa G v
ornor Hogg. Tim Nuws believes
honestly that it would bo ruinous to
Toxas to re elect Hogg. It believes
it would bo advantageous to tho state
to cloot Clark. It presents the facts
as it seos theui to verify this view. Iu
matters of news it prints the facts as
it gets them and as will bo saen by
rcferonoe to the report of tho conven
tion yesterday ana on previous oooa
sions it makes no difference whethor
it is a Hogg convention or a Clark
convention or a People's party con
vention. The News tells the truth
and reports them in full. If some of
our Hogg friends would just stop and
consider a whilo thoy would disoovcr
that it is possible for men to live
neighbors and be friends and still
differ as to who should bo governor.
WILL THE CONVENTION BE REMOVED?
Tho Houston Post a fow days Dgo
had an editorial notice of a rumor
afloat in Houston to tho effect that
tho stato convention would be remov
ed from Houston if Harris county
did not instruct for Hogg. Tho Post
did not soein to give credence to tho
rumor but dealt a stinqing rebuko to
the spirit that prompted such tactics.
It closed with the declaration that
Houston would comply with her con
tract to the letter as regards the pre
parations for the convention and Har
ris county would vote as sho pleased.
In yesterdays Post appears a commu
nication from Major Looscan an ar
dent Hogg man which rathor con
firms the report that suoh a Uep was
contemplated, thoueb he attempts to
deny it. Mr. Looscan says:
"Tho convention was brought hero
through the executive committee by
tho friends of the Hogg administra
tion, and I defy The Post or any one
now enlisted in Judge Clark's sorvico
to name an advocate of Judgo Clark
or that commission who voted for
Houston tor the location, lucre is
ono thing certain, that if it had been
known to tho state executivo commit
tee that tho Republicans of this placo,
in bohalf of the Liquor assooiatior,
would cooperato to openly fight the
administration and raise subscriptions
for tho Olark club, it is certain they
would never have selected Houston.
The location of tho convention at
Houston entirely depends upon the
report of tho sub-eommitteo which
was appointed to visit Houston and
examine into her eonvenionces for
such convention, and if their report bo
adverse, then tho matter reverts to
the stato exeoutive cOmmitteo for fur
ther action." The sub. committee has
visited Houston and it was just after
this visit that the report of the re
moval of the convention was circulat
ed. There is just two ways
and only two, to aocount for
this roport. A removal of tho con-
vention is oontemplated or the report
was ciroulatod to influonco voters in
the oit) of Houston which has de
monstrated beyond question its profer
onoo for Clark. Either ono of thoso
methods is contemptible and mean and
The News does not believe a major
ity ot the stato exooutivo committee
could be brought to countenance any
thing of tho kind, but, if the sub-oom-lnittoo
makes an adverse roport they
will of ooujse do it upon other grounds.
Mr. Loosoan claims for tho Hogg men
the credit for selooting Houston and
seems to thing the opposition should
be silent and inactive on that aocount.
The Clark mon made no effort to con
trol or influenoo tho action of the
ooinmittec, an 1 when Houston was
selected they wore well p'cascd, but if
tho cummittco undertake to romovo it
there will be tho biggest howl raised
that was over heard in Toxas.
