with the understanding that if it has
not a larger lecal circulation than any
daily paper published in Waco, no
oharge will bo made for the advertiso
mont. Galveston went for Hogg, and
Galveston is a largo oity.
That oauso is weak, indcod, that
bases its sole hope of suocess on tho
prejudices of a people.
George Clark has proven that he is
the people's friend without pandering
to the sentiment hostile to capital.
Ex-Senator Chilton is loading a
dynamite bomb when 'ho advocates
the adoption of tho majority rule in
tho nominating convention.
As Judgo Aldredge says, '"Clark is a
peculiar man and one peculiarity of
his is that ho generally gets what ho
goes after. Ho is after Hogg's po
litical scalp and he will havo it."
George Clark's defense of the peo
ple's homes will win for him the sup
port and lasting gratitude of the oc
cupant of the "cabin by tho wayside."
All industry is paralyzed, business
stagnated and capital fled, from the
effects of ono term of Hogg and "do
as I pleaso-ism." Wo shuddor to
think what would be the effects of
The Fifth ward in Houston, the
railroad ward of the city, went for
Hogg. It was the only ward in Hous
ton carried by the governor. This
doesn't confirm the statement made
by Hogg that the railroad men were
afraid to support him.
The fact that tho proposition to
abolish tho two-thirds rulo comes
from the supporters of Gov. Hogg
shows they do not oxpoot to got moro
than a majority in tho convention.
Their proposition will be heard of no
more forever when they find thoy
lave not oven a majority.
Ab the wave of popular opinion
sweeps on and county after county in
structs for tho littlo Waoo giant, even
the most pig-headed of the opposition
cannot mistake the signs of tho times,
and their utmost and most desperate,
but futilo ondeavors arc now being
made in tho vein hopo of looking tho
oonvontion at Houston.
It seems to us that Gov. Hogg had
better be at homo attending to some
of those numerous things that ho in
tonds to do if ro-eleoted, than
spending his timo inflicting tho dear
jeoplo with an attempted justification
of his mis-administration. If ho does
not do them now ho never will, for
"there is a tide in tho affairs of gov
ernors which taken at the flood leads
down to privato life," and he is seated
on tho very crest of it bejond tho
icaoh of hopo or holp.
The Clark meTTiiTGalveston made
an open, honest fight Wednesday
night, and the Hogg men worked un
der cover. The Clark men had their
headquarters at the Tremont hotel.
The Hogg men's headquarters were
unknown to anybody but a few of the
managers. Walter Gresham is a dele
gate from the Eleventh ward and
Miles Crowley is a delegate from the
Fifth. The city and county of Gal
veston are in the grasp of these two
mon, one a railroad magnate and the
other a ward heeler. The "infloo
ence" that circulates throhgh such
mediums is legal tender.

Govornor Hogg in his attempt at a
speech at Paris on the Gth, when
aeoused of appointing Chilton to tho
senate because he was not ombarrassed
(tainted) with a Oonfodorato record,
replied that "I appointed Horace Chil
ton because I wanted to," and then
gently inquired in dulcet tones,
'Does that satisfy you?" Wo tako
pleasure in pointing to this one timo
in whioh his excellency (goaded to it
by ttio spur of tho moment, no doubt),
has told the truth. Ho very evidently
appointed Chilton "beoauso ho wanted
to," as there could bo no other roasDn,
and yet thoro aro a great number of
pcoplo so unreasonablo as to suppose
that there might be even better rea
sons for appointing a senator than
because our executive willed it. This
seems to bo a very popular reason of
our governor's, and explains a great
many of his notions. And still wo
are not satisfied.
Hogg's pitiable effort to array the
country against tho towns is very
amusing. Ho attempts to work on
credulity and prejudice only bringing
tho contempt they so richly merit down
on hiuisolf. Tho farmer is possessed
of intelligonco to vote and act for
himself, and he proposes to do it. Ho
kcops informed on all issues, and all
attempts to mislead him with falso

present mis-administration, and ho is

their ears. Hogg will learn after a

Cowboys Jlalio n CoiuliYcfor "Dsiiici'."
A band of cowboys in Montana hurt long
noticed a course of behavior on tho part of
a Northern Pacific train conductor which
they determined not to tolerate. The con
ductor did the worst thing, in a cowboy's
opinion, thati any man could do lie acted
like a dude; he "put on style." lie actu
ally went so far as to swing himself oil the
cars before they stopped, and, with one
arm extended and head offensively erect,
would shout: "Dingleville! All out for
Dingleville'" His whole manner was arti
ficial, affected and unbearable.
This being noticed and no one is quicket
to notice the hollow trickery of an eastern
man than cowlwys are the .boys decided
to "take him down." So one day they as
sembled on the station platform in a semi
circular line, into tho curve of which he
must run as he leaped from the moving
cars. The conductor did as he was ex
pected to, the cowboys biirrounded him,
nud he was bidden to dance.
"nance!" they shouted. "Dance, or we'll
shoot the toes off you I"
At the words each cowboy pulled his
pistol and begun shooting down into the
platform planks, not exactly at the con
ductor's feet, but so as to narrowly mis;
them. They blazed nway and he danced,
until, after ho wn all but exhausted and
they had no moro shots to fire, they bade
him go on with the train and never "show
up" at Dinglevillo until he could behave
like a man. Julian Ralph in Harper's

The husk of Indian corn is being used in
