Tho fight is a sure-enough fight in

The acreage of ootton planted in
Texas this year is, according 10 Brad
streets reports, 15 per cont. less than
last year. This should be encourag
ing, as the price will probably bo high
enough to pay the farmer something
for his work.
TriE News has been informed that
' thore arc numerous voters in some
parts of tho county who openly de
clare their purpoao to voto in the
Democratic primaries for Hogg and if
ho is defeated in convention tboy
proposo to vote for the People's party
candidate. That this sohemo is be
ing oncourged by the Hogg managers
all over the statis proven by tho test
proposed by them. It simply pro
vides that all participants shall have
voted the Demooratio tiokot in 1890,
but does not requiro a pledge to
support tho nomineo of tho Demo
cratic party. It is plain now that the
third party men areboing encouraged
in their course by tho Hogg managers.
THE SAN ANTONIO, BOLT.
In another plaoo is givon a full ac
count of the proceedings of the San
Antonio convention so far as the dif
ferences precipitating tho split in tho
convention is oonoerncd, the commit
tees and delegates appoiutod, eaoh
faction being left out of tho
Express report. Tho Hogg mon were
in- tho majority, and it iras expeoted
that thoy would dominate tho con
vention but tho discraoeful mothods
adopted to ohoko off any intorforenco
with Boss Callaghan was too much
for solf rospeoting American citizens,
and to avoid furthor trouble after
several stillettoa and revolvers
were unsheathed they withdrew
and left the greasers to
themselves. Following is tho Ex
press commont on tho convention:
'What shall it profit a man if he in

eoveral of tho gentlomon who partici
pated in yesterday's riot. Its effect
upon tho noxt oanvass in this oounty
is inevitably strong. Tho Express
has uttered repeated warnings against
tho mixture of looal cabals and
ohioanerles with a puroly stato matter.
Tho warnings were disregarded. There
is anraftor-math to roap. It will bo a

is good that brethren should dwell
together in unity. But no brother,
however peaoeably inclined, will stand

Tho Ilounton Post roceived a letter
from a Hogg man in Flatonio proclaim
ing in insulting language the falsity
of tho figures showing the oounty in
structions for governor. Tho Post
prints the letter and in the following
editorial shows up tho desporato
scheme being worked by tho Hogg
' In answer to the above tho Post
will state that its figures havo been
obtained from what it considers re
liablo sources, and until some of these
figures aro shown to be incorrect it
must insist that thoy bo aooeptcd as
tho real status of tho campaign. The
Post desires to print the facts, and to
this end invites any one to disprove
tho figures used. But the Post will
insist upon bettor evidence than the
bulletins scattered over tho stato by
tho Hogg campaign club at Austin.
Tho Post saw one of these bulletins
yesterday, and was surprised, even in
this campaign of notorious deception,
at such brazen attempts to mislead
the people. This bulletin had in
tho Hogg column a number of coun
ties which havo not even held their
primaries. In other instances it plac
ed in tho Hogg list oounties which
had instruoted for Clark, marked
"contested," whilo many oounties
acknowledged to be for Clark wore
ignored. These bulletins aro sent out
secretly by Govornor Hogg's bereau
at Austin, and only certain loaders of
the Hogg forces aro permitted to see
thom. Perhaps Mr. Simpson has soen
one of these bulletins; may be he is a
'Through some process of reason
ing unoxplaincd and unexplainable,

have, apparently, reached tho conclu

That determination has boon mani
fested in so many ways and at so
many places that it argues if not a
common design at least a common sen
timent, which proposes to place Gov
ernor Hogg at the head of tho ticket
by peaceful mothods if possible, by
force if necessary.
The proposition openly made in tho
lato Tarrant county convention by a,
leader of tho Hogg foroos, a man
whoso sincerity no one would question,
and, ordinarily, conservative, for a
bolt, which If adopted would certainly
havo defeated the oounty ticket, illus
trates the radioal temperament of tho

Is it intended to tio up tho votes of
so many of tho anti-administration
oountios by ooatosting delegations
that in the organization of tho Hous
ton convontion tho Hogg following
will havo its own way?
Enough has already occurred to
make this a pertinent question. The
Gazette takes this oooasion to sound a
note of warning for tho benefit of
whoovor it fits. Revolutionary
methods will not benefit tho cause of
any andidato for governor. Tho feel
ing runs too high on both sides for
such Uotics to be indulged in safely.
Tho nomination must be fairly won.
Thero aro enough Demoorats in Texas

personality of either Gov. Hogg or
Judge Clark to enforce the demand

"Evidonoo is not wanting to ptovo

a caso in point. Judgo Clark has a
dear majority of tho votes, but an at
tempt is being made to fish up an ex
cuse for a bolt in order to thiow
Harris in tho contested oolumn in tho
state convention. Indoed, so de
liberate is tho movement that tho
Hogg bureau at Austin has al
ready, in advanoo of tho county con
vention, placed Harris in the oontested
column. It eeems to bo tho pro

bolts and contests all over the state,
and in addition to this Senator Horace
Uhilton and Hon. Tom Brown, two of
Hogg's ohief lieutenants, aro reported
to bo urging the adoption of tho ma
jority rule in the Houston convention.
As the Gazetto suggests, theso people
are treading on dangerous ground.
They may go too far with this political
"imperialism and reaoh tho point whero
tho great masses of tho people, always
conso-vative, will revolt. We have

nnge of the possibilities that wo
may witness tho same thing in Tcxas.

THE DEAD MAN'S STORY.
Tho Story of n CrlniH Wlinie
im-nt Whs Not f Mfn.
The fltvt sensations of tho murderer were
of n vague, dreamy s-ort. He realized inde
scribable relief to think that he had got
rid of the body; ho thought of the river
and how the river would toll tio tales; and
how the corp-e, sewed up in a carpet sack,
had sunk like n stone in the night; nnd of
his stealthy retreat, under tho hazy glam
our of the sickly river lights and then his
fancies snddenly took a wider range, and
he thought not of the dend, but of the llv

Thus the first night wore slowly away,
and when tho morning came and the gold

upon the wall he was still there, frozen
into that oblivion that waits on one whose
conscience is his own accuser, and for
whoic this world oilers peace no more.

As for Sidney Lafnrge, lie had evaded
nrreit, and as time wore on ho gradunlly
learned to look upon himself as safe from
the eugeance of the law.
Still, who was that old man who nlwaya
kept Lafarge in sight? The day he first
saw tho shadow on his track he concluded
at once that he was safe now only in mix
ing with tho crowd. Ho wandered up and
down the Bowery. He crossed to Central
park, then back ogain to tho river, and so
on, hour after hour, until night replaced
the waning day, and then ho found that he
had moved in a great circle and that his
startiug point had been his journey's end.
Tho detective did not come back that
next day following, but ho did return tho
next night. He was an old man with a
gray beard and furtivo glances, such as
stamped him as nn expert thief catcher.
This shadow Lafaige struggled in vain to
avoid. Now and again lie would evade
the sleuth, but usually tho last restless
glance that Lafargo cast over his shoulder
as ho started into his dark hallway, in tho
evening after a long day's wandering up
nnd down tho streets of tho great city,
would rest on tho watchful presence of
tho mysterious stranger.
That last night Lafarge was sitting in
his room, lost in the dull smoke dream o(
one who is always thinking of some haunt
ing, secret sorrow. He wus saying to him
"I must escape. Tomorrow I shall tako
passago as n stowaway on an Ka&t India

Ho started to his feet, n startled cry of
terror trembling from his lips.
There, in tho twilight of tho little room,
beforo Sidney Lafarge, stood the man who
had been on his trail.
With a wild cry of despair Lafarge
sprang from his seat and made a desperate
lunge at the detective's throat.
There was a crash of. glass, and Sidnoy
Lafarge's hands wero sopped with blood.
Ho had seen and sprung otliis own reflec
