Texas Gleans Up.
The early returns from Texas
showing that Gov. Hobby had won
over former Gov. Ferguson were re
ceived with approval by everybody
who kept track of the impeachment
proceeding that resulted in Fergu
son's retirement. Putting aside the
question whether Ferguson violated
the law of his State, there was still
enough in the evidence to show
that he was the kind of Governor
any State can spare without loss.
His violent and vulgar opposition
to the university, together with his
peculiar ideas about the manage
ment of State finances, was enough
to condemn him.
The voters of Texas have done a
good job in shelving him. and the
figures on the vote against Repre
sentative McLemore indicate that
further discriminating use of the
ballot has placed him in a position
where he cannot add to the joy in

About Senator Wilfley
B; ck of the success of Senator
Wilfley in life, a success which
brought him the appointment at the
hands of the discerning and patri
atic Governor Gardner, is a story of
battle against obstacles, a conquer
ing fight to fit himself for service.
He started life handicapped by a
physical infirmity of lameness, a
handicap which would have dis
couraged a less courageous soul
He was frail of physique, lacking
in strength and his first fight was
for life itself. That fight he won
as he has won other fights, by a
strict and stern discipline of him
self He won his way through
college and fought for his educa
tion. He turned that education to
practical tiff airs and became a lead
er in every arena in which he has
As a lawyer, he fought fair. As
a man be has lived in the open. No
trail of broken promises, of suc
cess at the expense of others marks
bis life's pathway.
His fearlesness, his patriotism,
his ability to mister problem, at -tracted
the attention of the gov
ernor He knew what St. Louis, the
home of the senator, thought and
believed of this man. And when
the task of selecting a successor to
the late Senator Stone devolved up
on him, it was these qualities and
this reputation, not political coo
siderations, that prompted his se
lection. The few brief months in
the senate have justified that choice.
The voice of Senator Wilfley has
been raised in support ot the ad
ministration of President Wilson
His vote has been cast for the pa
triotic measures of the president.
He has kept the faith.
He is a Democrat always. He
has no record of unsavory alliance
with the enemies of his party. His
appeal is that of a staunch support
er of the president, to the members
of his party.
All local pride must be forgotten
in the election of Congressmen at
this time and the men best qualified
should be elected. In the Second
district. Judge Rucker is the man
for the place. The future of the
world hangs on the work done by
President Wilson and Congress. Let
us do our part to make it the best.
