giving an aooount of tho fight at tho
"machine" convention. ''It I took a
part in that disturbance at that moot
ing, I won't call it a convention, it was
because I wanted free Bpeeoh."
0. A. Keller then nominated Col.
H. B. Andrews temporary chairman of
the convention and upon motion ho
was unanimously elected. G. It. Sul
livan, was eleoted sooretary and B. F.
McNulty assistant secretary.
"Captain Noleon Mackdy then sug
gested that S G. Nowton ?ivo an.ao

primary where tho wholo troublo origi
nally staited Mr. Nowton then re
lated tho oircumstuaocs of that pri
mary and of tho seleoiion of the Hogg
delegation duspite tho faot that the
Clark delegation had already been
selected in duo form and at tho reg
ularly called meeting. Notwithstand
ing that fact the committee on cre
dentials at the county convention
placed , tho original and valid delcga
tion on an equal footing with tho con
testants. Tho crowd then began to call for
William Aubroy to address thsm. Mr.
Aubrey ssid in part:
"I bad the honor to tako a part in
the Bixth ward primary, reforred toby
Mr. Newton, and there oan bo no
question as to tho validity of tho del
egation we selected lrom that ward
This meeting is certainly ono that
repiesents tho intclligenoo of tho
Democracy of Bexar oounty. There
are many men in this audience who
are known throughout the length and
breadth of the stato as true Demo
crats. I believo that when tho dele
gation solected by this convention
gets to Houston, and the names of
these prominent and faithful Demo
crats of Bexar oounty, whom every
body knows, are read that they will
not be ignored."
HE DEFINES IKS POSITION.
Tho Hon. Osoar Bergstrom, who
-was with tho Clark crowd in tho meet
ing at Krisoh's hall and who wont
with them to the armory, was called
upon for a speech. Ho n. our. tod tho
table and made a tolling talk. Ho
was frequently interrupted with up
roarious applauso. Ho said:
"I wasan't hit in tho othor conven
tion physically, but otherwise I was
as bad as anybody. So far as I am
concerned I regret very muoh that
the occurrence of today has to be re
corded in a Democratic convention.
It was a convention controlled by a
few men opainst the intelligence "and
liberties of thopeoplo of Bexar oounty.
I have been the friond of those mon
and will continuo to bo ro personally,
but politically, that may bo auother
question, since what I havo witnessod
the in do tcday. Tho leaders in that
convention had men thero who havo
ro interest in Bexar oounty. Thoy
stood in the front ranks and flaunted
in our face tho assertion that thoy
would uiako Texas a pauper. I havo
always stood as roady as any man in
Texas to keep together the Damo
oratio party ot this state. But that
time has ootuo in iiexar county wnen
it cannot bo done. I fott that if wo
rnnld cret a fair show ana a fair oount
in that convention we miht be able
to accomplish something, even though
wo might bo controlled oy itiexicans
who don't know who is running for
governor. But if ono man is to take
things in ohargo in Bexar county and
uso tho Mexicans to cancel tho intel
ligent vote it is tiaio to stop and draw
tho line. Great Applause "

A Letter From W. G. Fay Mow the
texas Campaign Is Regarded.
To Tho News.
St, Louis. Mo , May 27. In compliance-
with the request of your ablo
city editor I am induced to write you
a lino or two.
I receive The News every day and
consequently fresh aud reliable infor
mation from Waco. I see The News
is spreading out and is guaranteeing
a larger daily circulation than any
paper published in Waoo. I don't
question tho veracity cf TtiE News at
all in that respect I hlways know
that Let the good work go on. To
the point. You asked me to commu
nicate to tho readers of The News
the manner iu whieh politics iu Texas
is viewed by St. Louis pooplo. Let
me say right here that the present
canvass for the gubernatorial offico is
being watched with a greit deal of
interest in St. Louis, As you aro
aware St. Louis is and always has
been tho Texas northern market.
More goods are shipped from St.
Louis into Texas than any other city
outside her borders, and moro men aro
trading in Texas from St. Louis than
any other oity in the universe, and
not a little money has been invested
in Texas securities lrom St. Louis.
Sinco here I havo circulated freely
among tho business men men follow
ing my occupation, and I have fre
quently enquired into the matter with
a view of advising you. Thoy in
variably reply, ''Wo cannot afford to
do business in Texas under tho
present administration " They look
for Clark to bo eleoted governor, and
no sooner will ho tako bis exeoutive
seat than will they return their in
terests to Tc xas. Thoy scoff at the
idea of Hogg even boing a candidate,
and wonder why Toxas people toler
ato his candidacy. That alien land
law has killed them knooked them
cold, as it were. Theroforo I can sub
stantiate my assertion when I say if
Texas cleots tho little giant governor,
and he carries out what he advocates,
an elective commission, Turn Texas
Looso, in plain words there will be a
return of oaphal to Texas, and her
prosperity which has been paralyzed
will again be returned. I know of one
institution here who contemplate the
establishment of a branch either at
Waoo or Dallas. Since an establish
ment would bo a valuable acquisition
to either town and would give employ
ment to several hundred men. They
aro only awaiting tho result of the
ensuing eleotion, and would, under
no consideration como into Texas
while "James Stophon" is governor.
"Turn Texas loose." Does any one

Enthusiasm for Clark.
Mooreville, May 29 By previ
ous arrangement Hon. J V. Taylor,
of Waco, was to meet J. J. Davis,
representative of Falls county, at this
place Saturday night in joint discus
sion in interest of Clark and Hogg.
Mr. Davis, the Hogg speaker, failed
to appear, and Mr. Taylor entertained
his audience with a ringing Clark
speech, the most pointed and forcible
speech heard hero this campaign.
Though the Czar of Falls county
Hoggism lives here, we have a good
majority to carry this box for Clark.

This morning at about 9:30 the
high wind which has been blowing all
day came in a stronger puff than or
dinary and overturned a part of tho
coping and oornico of the
llotan Grocery compauy's building.
Tho part of tho coping
which fell extended above tho roof
twclvo or fifteen feet and was of a
semi-circular shape. When it fell tho
only occupants of the offico under
neath were Mr. W. W. Davis and
Mr. J. II. Barnard, Mr. Divis hd
just been called to the door and was
in the door way when tho crash camo
and be)ond a slight cut in tho hand
from broken glass and a few slight
bruises ho was uninjured. Mr. Bar
nard was pitting at his desk and whs
consequently worso hurt than Mr.
Davis, but oven his hurts aro not seri
ous. Ho received several severe
bruises on the hoad aud body
and his arm is severply
mashed though no bones were broken.
It seems almost incredible that no
lives were lost for there are at sll
times sovoral peoplo in tho office.
From the present appearance it seems
impossible that any one could escapo
from the room alivo as did Mr. Bar
nard. The entire offico is filled with
briok, broken timbers and tin roofing,
to a depth of several feet. Had Mr.
Davis remained at his desk where ho
had been at work he would havo
been instantly killed.
As soon as the aocident oocurred
an alarm of fire was turned in for fear
that the ruins would become ignited
and a disastrous fire would result.
This additional calamity was howover
happily averted. l'hysioians wero
called in and the wounded men wore
attended to. It was a narrow escapo
