It may be well to state a few things
about George H. Clements.
George H. Clements is a virile,
red blooded American. In the

captain in the United States volun

enough to serve in the army at that
time. What was his rank?
Before securing his commission,
George H. Clements was fn charge

Laffan News bureau (New York
Sun) in Cuban waters. Prior to
that time, he had been editor of
the Chicago Inter-Ocean and pub
lisher of the Milwaukee Sentinel.

Hudspeth, "and who knew one of my

This declaration brought a round
of applause and the speaker went on
to say that there would have been no
dissension In the ranks of the people
of the 16th district were it not for
the overweening ambition of a man
who thought he saw an opportunity
to ride into place and power on the
crest of a popular wave of public sentiment

COBS OFFERS I.
Opponent Fails to Meet
Him at Kerrville; Cobb
By GEO. H. CLEMENTS.
Kerrville. Texas. April 30. Claude
B. Hudspeth has again refused a chal
lenge to meet his opponent in the con
gressional race, Zach L. Cobb, though
he was on the ground "all dressed up
with no other place to go." so far as
could be ascertained.
Mr. Cobb arrived in Kerrville Mon
day afternoon from San Antonio, after
a trying trip In one of the worst rain
storms ever witnessed in this section
of the state. Before leaving San An
tonio, he had a telephone conversation
with Hon. IL C. Geddie, mayor of
Kerrville, in the course of which be
said that he had heard that Mr. Huds
peth was to be In Kerrville and asked
if the senator did appear that he be
offered a division of time with Mr.
Cobb at the meeting which had been
arranged for Cobb for Monday night.
Upon arriving at Kerrville. it was
found that Mr. Hudspeth had spent
the early part of the day in the city
and that mayor Geddie had delivered
Mr. Cobb's Invitation regarding a di
vision of time and that Mr. Hudspeth
bad declined the invitation on the
ground that he had engagements
which would make it impossible tor
him to meet Mr. Cobb until after Sat
urday. May 11.
says Will Meet Cobb Later.
He made the statement, however, that
he would be willing to meet Mr. Cobb
as often as the latter desired there
after. "The refusal of senator Hudspeth to
remain over night in Kerrville, which
has been supposed to be one of the
counties in which he is strongest,"
said Mr. Cobb, "is the most distinct
display of his political dodging that
he has yet made. He was very brave
in bis assertions at Bandera, where he I
conld talk without fear of contradic
tion, but he knows that in joint de
bate he would have to confine himself
to the truth.
"Whenever we do force him into
joint debate. I will make him come
within the bounds of truth or run him
out of the race for congress.
"Senator Hudspeth's claim of en
gagements until after May 11 is an
alibi to enable him to dodge."
Advantage With Hudspeth.
"While he was talking at random at
Bandera last Saturday afternoon, he
made the wild assertion that San
Angelo and Tom Green county were
almost solid for him." continued Mr.
Cobb. "This is almost as far from
the truth as was his assertion at
Bandera that my old associates In the
customs service at El Paso were sup
porting him in this race. It he has
the support he claims at San Angelo.
he would have all the advantage in a
joint debate there of appearing before
a friendly audience. If he dodges the
San Angelo debate, it will be because
a man holding a four flush is afraid
or a show down.
Cobb Anxious For Debate.
"Mr. Hudspeth's expressed willing
ness to meet me after May 11 is. I am
afraid, a bluff. I am telegraphing my
headquarters in SI Paso the sugges
tion that they engage Liberty hall for
the first night it is thereafter avail
able so that the first joint debate with
its incident test of strength may take
place before our home people.

that even the most ardent sponsors rl know It and therefore am eager to

Picks I'D Cobb's Platform.
The senator then took up Cobb's
pianorm ana aia it consisted or nut
three planks prohibition. woman
suffrage and the percentage of Amer
icanism In the citizen who aspired to
office, the first two of which as po
litical issues were dead and the
Americanism plank never was an is
sue In American politics and never
couia oe maae an issue.
Speaker Grows Peevish.
"My record on the question of pro
hibition is an open book. I have been
an anti and I have been consistent.
It is true that I am in oppostion to
prohibition, but so far as the zone
bill is concerned I want to call your
attention and the attention of the
press agent to page 171 of the Senate
Journal, where I am recorded as vot
ing for the zone bill when It came
back amended so as to have it go Into
effect April 15 instead of April 1. as it
first read. If the truth is in you.
Pancho Villa's press agent, send that
to the paper you write for and which
vilifies decent citizens and tries to
dictate to Democrats as to whom they
shall nominate for office."
Why He Opposed Zone BUI.
The speaker admitted that he op
posed the zone bill while It was in
the senate, but said he did so solely
because be believed the men who
would be affected by Its paasaga
should be given more time in which

Friends see great change in
her condition since tak
"I have gained twenty pounds or
more and anyone who knew the
dreadful condition I was In can read
ily see the wonderful change Tanlac
has made in me," said Mrs. N. F. Mor
ris, who resides at J10 East Missouri
Street. El Paso. Texas, after using
live bottles or tne -Master Medicine."
"No one." she continued, "except
those afflicted the same way can have
but a faint Idea of the awful suffer?
Ing I went through for seven years.
I had Indigestion, a bad stomach and
rheumatism In my back and shoulders.
Many a day. and even months at a
time, I have lived roost altogether on
liquids. Occasionally for breakfast I
was allowed a glass of milk and a
little stale bread toasted, and I got
so I couldn't even take that. I couldn't
even drink water without it causing
me trouble. I was often so sick and
nauseated I felt like I would die and
some days there wasn't an hour but
what I would have a vomiting spell.
and while in this fix I was completely
exnaustea. Tne gas on my stomach
made my heart beat so fast It seemed
like it would Jump out of my body
and 1 just nad to struggle for breath.
I was very nervous, couldn't sleep at
night and felt tired and worn-out all
tne time. I bad reanul headaches
and, really, I never knew what it was
to be ire from suffering.
"I spent three months in one hos
pital and was told my trouble was
caused by either gallstones or appen
dicitis, bur I came back to El Paso
and kept getting worse. My suffer
ing wa3 ao terrible I didn't much care
whether I lived or not. and I had be
come discouraged and down-hearted.
Then I came to a hospital and had
my appendix removed, bat I still suf
fered the same way and became more
despondent than ever. My husband
and family paid out hundreds of dol
lars trying to get something to help
me. and just t- think a few bottles of
Tanlac have done more than every
thing else certainly seems remarka
ble to me. Tanlac seemed to go right
to the seat of my trouble and in a few
days I had a good appetite and com
menced to gain in weight and
strength. My rheumatism and ner
vousness are gone and I sleep good
every night, and my appetite Is ao
great I have to guard myself to keep
from eating more than I should. I
am still taking Tanlac but I have
already gotten so stout and healthv
looking that I don't get any more
sympathy. I'm talking Tanlac all the
time and my friends often speak of
how much better I look."
Tanlac is sold in El Paso by Kellv
& Pollard Co.. Inc., and People's Drug
of the bill agreed that more time
should be given, and some of the most
pronounced pros had suggested mak
ing May 1 the closing date.
To prove that he favored the zone
bill long before It was put upon its
Passage, the speaker asked his hear
ers to consult the files of the San An
tonio Express of February 27. last,
where be said they would find an In
terview, in which he had gone on rec
ord as being in favor of protecting
uic soiuiers iron liquor.
Says Strickland la far irlm.
He added that senator Strickland,
with whom he bad been paired on the
final vote on the zone bill on passage
through the senate, protested at that
time that an iniustice was balnr ilnne
him (Hudspeth) by the pair, as he
(Strickland) knew that Hudspeth was
in favor of the measure and ahould
not be recorded aa being paired
against it "And Strickland Is sup
porting me in this race and has of
fered to make speeches for me." said
Why He Opposed Suffrage.
So far aa woman suffrage was con
cerned, Mr. Hudspeth was very frank
to say that he opposed the bill tmnt-
ing the right to women to vote at the
primaries wnen It came up for pass
age at the special session of the legis
lature last winter, but went on to say
that he long ago had gone on record
as being in favor of a referendum
primary at which the women of the
state would be given opportunity to
determine whether or not they wanted
the ballot. If they did want It as ex-
pressea oy ineir votes at the primary,
he would be one of the first to pre
pare a bill and do his best to see that
it was enacted into law giving
women, not partial suffrage, but the
full ballot on an equality with men.
Gets a Round of Applause.
"My friends" said the speaker, "as
I have said. Cobb's issues are dead
issues. They have been settled and
a congressman will have as much to
do with them as he will with other
things which have been dropped Into
the gulf of oblivion. Texas has rati
fied the federal prohibition amend
ment and enough other of the wet
states will ratify it to cause the
amendment to become part of the
national constitution. When that is
done, liquor will be forever banished
irom me son or our peiovea Amer
ica." Wants Faet Xeted.
This statement was a-reetefl with
vigorous applause which caused the
speaker to remark to the correspond
