COBS SPEAKS TO S
(Coutinued From Page One.)
will forg-et the things against him, and
he -will be able to use his great Intellect
for this great state-
"But when the liquor dealers sav"d
him, they drove a hard bargain. They
said we shall save you but in return
you shall save us
"In this race for governor none but
Johnson and Colquitt had any chance.
Poindexter has been used. He has been
told that the hands of Bailey rested
on his head and he would be elected.
He is kept in the race to take votes
from Johnson. Colquitt is the candi
date of the saloon men and they want
him saved. Bailey has got to heJp the
haloou men, for two years ago they
taved him. The saloon men kept Cone
lohnson from beating him for delegate
to the National Democratic convention
Todav Bailey made a speech at Gains
ville in which lie opposed statewide pro
hibition. Poindexter is for statewide
prohibition; Colquitt is agajnst any sort
of prohibition. Doesn't that snow wnere
Colqaitt and -The Boys.'
"I was talking to one of the El Paso
ring about the candidates for governor
He said the ring was supporting El
Paso because 'if there Is a vacant
judgeship down here when Colquitt is
governor, he will appoint one of tht
hoys.' You know 'there might be 3
vacancy in a judgeship in El Paso
tne of them might die; they never re
sign. AVould Bar Illiterate Voter.
"Cone Johnson is true, big, and
clean; he has not solicited a dis
reputable vote and he will not get a
disreputable vote nor a vote from a
man who cannot read, and when he is
elected I am going down to Austin
and say to him, 'I worked for you as
hard as Colquitt's negro; now I want
you to do something for my El Paso. I
want you to get the legislature to
amend the Texas election law so that
no man can vote unless he can scratch
Li; own ticket."
At this the crowd went wild and
there were yells from all parts of the
"Anyone who tells you that Zack
Cobb has quit politics, you tell him that
as far us seeking office is concerned
lv has, but 1 am always going to work
for El Paso against rotten politics.
UZornlng Paper's "Fairness."
"You saw what the morning paper
said about the 'great ovation given
Colquitt at Dallas and the immense
crowd cf 2000 present at that meeting.
1 am not going to say anj'thlng- about
til morning paper because it is not
going to say anything ab6ut this meet
ing, or if' it does It will not be written
up except in the upper left hand cor
ner of the third page. I paid $12 for
"The night following the mee'ting
when Colquitt had 2000, Cone Johnson ,
spoke to t-e-n t-h-o-u-s-a-n-d. That
makes Colquitt look like 30 cents Mex
Icac money. The morning paper did
not have a line about It- Yonder what
it takes EI Pasoans for?
"If it were anybody else I would say
that, a carload of Colquitt silver dollars,
sent out to got the votes of head 'wait
ers, had been diverted, but of course
I wouldn't accuse the morning paper
of that." - (More laughter.)
s Cobb referred again to the hope
lessness of the Davidson caus, a man
in the balcony shouted "Hurrah for
Davidson." Cobb invited him to come
to tbe platform and advance cne good
a u.nent as to why Davidson ought
t) be elected. He then pleaded with
the followers of "a hopeless cause"
not to throw their votes away on Da
vidson and help Colquitt, but to regis-
ter them for "the man who stands for
decency Cone Johnson."
Many On Platform.
On the platform were Zack L. Cobb,
W. C. Davis, J. W. Webb, W. J. Buie,
Rev. E. B. Hearn, C. V. Nafe, T. E.
Shelton, Atlas Jones, Rev. TV. O. Milli
can, Rev. P. J. Rice. H. J. Mayfield, H.
A. Taylor, Mrs. M. L. Golden.
The meeting was opened by C V.
Nafe, who was followed by Rev. E. B.
Hearn, who offered the invocation, Nafe
saying: "As interesting a mill will
occur in Texas tomorrow as on the
Fourth of July at Reno, and I doubt
not that Cone Johnson will -win as
easily as that other Johnson did."
TV. J. Buie, who was substituted for
Fred "W. Freeman, the latter being un
able to reach town in time to appear
dl LUC UlCUUllj, 2IL1U Clldl 11C IV US Up- j
posed to the saloon because he be-
lleved the open saloon Injurious to
every class of business In the commun
ity, "as it takes the money that would
go into the proper channels of trade,
toward education and the building of
Rev. Perry J. Rice, pastor of the
First Christian church, devoted his talk
wholly to prohibition.
"You have heard that there are many
issues in the campaign but to my mind
there Is but one, and that is the ques
tion as to whether or not the people
shall have the right to say what they
want or if a few men shall rule and
control the affairs of this state. The
matter of submission is before them
and the saloon men fear for them to
vote upon it.
"You always find right seated upon
the gallows and wrong seated upon
the throne but the tide of right is
sweeping strong against the wrong and
will wrest from the grasp of the un
worthy the power of government.
Right ami the People.
"I have never known of a righteous
cause that could not be submitted to
a vote of the people, but the forces of
evil are ever afraid of the popular vote
and that is the reason there are some
people in Texas who don't want the
question of prohibition submitted.
"Any man who will sit In the gov
ernor's chair and deny the right of the
whole people to decide whether or not
they want the saloons within the bor
ders of, the state, not only upholds
those diabolical institutions, but also
drives a dagger deep Into the heart of
"The question as to whether or not
the saloon has any moral right to ex
ist Is no longer a moral question. It
Is recognized as an outlawed evil.
"Two-thirds of all the counties in the
state of Texas are dry. Three million
people live in districts where saloons
are not allowed; it covers an area of
200,000 square miles in Texas. One
thousand retail saloons were put out of
business in this state in the last half
of 1909. I do not blame them for not
wanting to submit the matter to the
public for they know what the out
come will be; they know how the de
cent people of Texas will vote."
Saloons Never Built a School.
Atlas Jones, "who followed, said:
"Some day we people of El Paso will
have to stand for what two-thirds of
the white people of the state now stand
for prohibition. It may not be at once
but the fight will go on and ultimately
we shall be called upon to decide. To
morrow you will have an opportunity
to cast a vote against that which "has
never built a chool house, a church,
nor a home. May we not hope you
will make that vote effective by vot
ing for Cone Johnson?"
A Sale of D
Silk, Linen and Lingerie, in the Most Attractive Models of the
Season, Many of Which Sold Earlier for $25.00 and $30.00
VERY woman within the influence of this store should give heed to this, the most forcible example of our determina
tion to make the clearance of summer garments complete. It is only the unchangeable policy of the tl Popular,' ' to
not carry a single garment frorn one season to the next, that allows us to consider for one instant such a radical low
ering of prices. This is but" one of the many items in this department on which the price is reduced MORE THAN"
ONE -HALF merely to effect the desired clearance.
Xotice the grand garments that we have included in this magnificent lot that Ave have prepared for Monday's sale silk costumes of plain and
fancy taffetas; satin foulard costumes in a variety of colors in the new spot designs, (made in most charming styles; linen dresses, many of
them exclusiVe (models, in white and colors, showing a wealth of variety in designs and trimming effect; dainty lingerie dresses of fine, sheer
batiste, in white and colors, trimmed with rich embroideries and fine laces.
Come Monday with the full assurance of finding values far beyond your most sanguine expectations-4-for our statement of
values is most conservative.

In pumping for irrigation the most
important consideration is a large
available water supply. There are few
localities that can show better advan
tages in this respect than the Rio
Grande valley. Almost anywhere .n
the valley water may be found below
a depth of 15 to 20' feet.
The advice of the best orchardists
to the inexperienced in irrigation is to
find out where most of the feeding
roots are located, learn the nature of
the soil around" them, and make fre
quent tests as lo the moisture whlca
it contains. Mar.y fruit growers do not
irrigate until there is av slight change
In color or curling of the leaves, but
both fruit and trees may be Injured by
waiting for such, signs of distress.
Green manures improve the physical
condition of the land by shading the
soil from the intense summer heat, by
preventing the rapid burning of or
ganic matter in the soil and conserv
ing the surface moisture, thereby pre
venting crusts and cracks from form
ing. They also protect the trunks and
limbs of trees from the reflection of
the sun from the soil, and prevent soils
from cementing and puddling.
. The Texas experiment station has
tested the vineless or bunch sweet po
tatoes and concluded that the value of
this type Is established without ques
tion, the same as that of the bush lima
bean. One strain only can be en
dorsed, two others not proving very
productive, or else partial failures. The
foliage of the two inferior strains is
not so dense nor are the leaves so
long and heavy as In the one recom
mended. The best of the strains has
vines two to four feet long, with heavy
Breaking up old alfalfa fields and the
seeding of new vines has created a de
mand for the seed that may exceed the
present rate of supply. The yield of
such even in the best regions is not
what it formerly was and the price lias
consequently advanced greatly. The
high price of seed, the difficulty in
securing a good stand and the trouble
in plowing the alfalfa sod deters many
farmers from practicing a crop rota
tion that they know is for their good.
h To secure a uniform stand of beets
it is the practice of Coloradoto throw
out deep furrows and set the beets in
them with the crown level with the
surface of the ground. A small plow
or cultivator is then used to throw the
soil to them, then a "small stream of
water is run along each side of the
row to settle the ground uniformly
about each beet. After the beets have
started they are cultivated and irri
gated frequently until the seed stalk
appears, when less water is necessary.
"Water is withheld entirely when the
seed begins to ripen.
