UunolT I'Himirj. A. C. Wilmoth wuh elected ut the recent primaries to the position of county eMrriittn but says he will not serve aguin la thut capacity. He States furthermore thut the law provides that when there Is to be a second' or' runoff primary to decide between candidates for a county of fice' that primary shall be held on the second Saturday In August and thai be has retdgned the chairman ship and will , not make provision for. the election. It la understood thut Mr. Howell and Miss Suuyres expect, to submit themselves' to a 'runoff primary, and somebody should see to holding the election. It lias been supposed that this race would come on the 28th along with the others and the matter will be simplified If these numes are placed on the ticket for that elec tion. Even If not technically legal the people can vote on the 28th and it will certainly be satisfactory to all concerned. For sure, .curtry county should not tal to hold the second primary on August 28. Mexico Has More Trouble. Gov. Cantu of Lower California has served notice on the Mexican government that all orders, commun ications or federal interference from the Mexican authorities will be Ig nored. Ho and the people of hla territory are In rebellion against the provisional government and It Is said he Is bucked by several thousand soldiers. Ho has enlisted the Chi nese and is trying to get the Japs to join him. It Is said that a number of the old Carranza supporters are behind, tho movement. There is J 13.000 worth of build ing In progress In Dallas under the open shdp rules. If the Inter-World church move ment Im) to get into politics It will lose popular favor. Coal miners and operators are In conference In Chicago with a reason ably fair prpret or settling differences. Samuel Gompers declares that labor will not tolerate n reduction f the scale of wages. ' The new!y created Joint track di vision of the Texas &. Pacific and the M. K. & T. will be located at Denton. That Jakes Denton a rail road town. The attorney general of Mexico says Carranza was n private citizen when he was killed. That simplifies the case. It has been considered a harmless pastime In Mexico to shoot down private citizens. President Wilson urges coal min ners to continue at work. He says it is necessary that mining be re sumed' before he will ask the bitu minous coal people to consider Ine qualities In the wage scale. More than likely Mr. Bailey him self doesn't expect to get a Judgment for damages against the Fort Worth Record, but he will have gained an end If he can scare other newspapers out of printing campaign dope about htm. Mr. Bailey vras a candidate for governor In tho primaries and la candidate In the runoff. The man who rotes in the democratic pri maries pledges supiort to the nomi nee, bat iMr. Bailey is reported to have been saying he will not vote for any man who favors Wilson. Pat Neff favors WIlHon. A' dispatch from Chicago -says railroads are doing an Increased business. 'Tls well it Is so the public has to pay an Increase of six hundred million dollars for wages and a billion and a naif In freight and passenger charges, therefore the roads ought to be, turning off more work and without bo much delay. , Mr. - Ov L. Ifpwell is vlsftlng this week In New Mexico. County Convention Names Delegates to Stute Convention. The democratic county convention for Scurry county was held lust Sat urday to elect de-legates to the state convention. W. S. Adamson was elected chair man and Mrs. Kate Cotten secretary of tho convention. There was no oratory turned !oose ut this meeting, but a resolution was adapted endorsing the democratic administration, national and state, and lhl national platform promul gated by the San Francisco conven tion. Following Is the list of delegates elected to the state convention: W. II. Morrow, M. E. Rosser, C. R. Huchunan, J. F. Dowdy and J. C. Beakley, L. M. Perlman, A. Rhoads. W. S. Adamson. Primitive Association Adjourned. The rrlniitlve Baptist association closed here Sunday with a great crowd at the tabernacle for the Sun duy servlco. There were five addi tions to the church and four of these were baptized In Deep Creek Sun day morning by Rev. J. A. HeBter, pastor of the Snyder church. Tho association will meet next year with ZIon's Rest church In Mitchell county. They are a self susttinLng (people, "providing their own Ijoard and .keep. Primitive Baptists are noted for honesty. In dustry and frugality. It has always been said of them that their verbal promise Is as good as a written bond. They go about their affairs with firmness of purpose, and while they are, said to jieVi to the faith that nothing they may do can change the trend of things, they are careful to avoid any rashness to tempt fate. We are glad to have had these good people with us. Thero can be little room for doubt that Pat Neff regrets the things he said about R. E. Thoma son, and the people should he us charitable as Mr. ThomuHon and overlook the campaign Incident and look past, it to the welfare of the state and the democratic party. Appreciate the Prriu-tier. To the Signal: We certainly appreciate having had1 Hro. Hicks, the Methodist pas tor at Snyrior, with us a few days In our meeting at Elklns Chapel. He Is a strong, deep preacher of the gospe! Ho made many friends while here. The Methodtot people of Snyder ought to be proud of having a Godly man like that for pastor. They should help him In every way The Methodist people who are hiding out around Snyder and not going to preaching should remem ber that some of them have children on tire road to eternal torments un less saved by grnce. They should wake up to their awful responsibility and help to save the young people before it is too late. Your Brother. Ceo. M. Elklns. Departing (ilie-(. I like to have my friends come In. when evening's growln' gray, and talk of autos made of tin.' of hens and hogs and hay. Their coming does not make me sore, 'tis this that makes me grieve, when they would get their visit o'er, they take so long to leave! They quit the daz zling sitting room at half past', ten o'clock, then In the hall's religious gloom they talk and talk and talk. At last they leave my humble door, but on the porch they pause, and for another hour or more they ply their useful Jaws. The nlghtf It waxing old and late when down the walk they go, and then they loiter at the gate to talk an hour or so. How grand Is that infrequent guest who says at nine o'clock "Time files apace, you want to' rest, so I) will take a walk." He takes his walking stick and hat, and whenj he comes some more, he finds a welcome on the mat that lies before the door. My friends are welcomed to my gate, and harmless suds shall flow, but when it's time to pull their I wish they'd up and go! Walt Mason. Wirlnem Meeting Postponed. Amarillo has been making exten sive preparations for the Khiva Shrine ceremonial .to be held there during this month, but there has been a change In plans as Is shown by the following message to the Sig nal: Amarillo, Texas, Aug. 2.1920.

(."' I ! Newspaper Circles Bailey Sum Fort Worth Record. A unit entitled Joseph W. Bailey against The Record company of Fort Worth. Texas, for $100,000 wus filed in district court ut Gainesville laat Friday. It was alleged that fa!se. slanderous and malicloua publication of matter In regard to Mr. Bulley's alleged connection with the element opposed to prohibition had baen made In the Issues of the Fort Worth Record on April 22 und 29 last. Mr. Bailey wus the leading candi date of a field of four In the contest for the democratic gubernatorial nomination at last Saturday's pri mary and will contest for the nomi nation with Fat M. J'eff of Waco at n run-off primary Aug. 28. While no word has been received by the Record from Gainesville rela tive to the suit, report of It appears to be wlilespreaY The first the Record heard of the suit was in the voluntary tender of services by land ing attorneys of Texas, who express the opinion that the allegations do not show a basis for action. No matter how favorably located a town may be, It takes some kind of prganized effort to get things done. The Statonlte Every town that hopes to go for ward by individual effort gets prac tically nothing. Congressman King Swope of Ken tucky, on his return from the Orient, declared thut the United States has reached a point where "we should not permit any unassiml'iihle race to fill up our Pacific states or any other states." Congressman King Swope Is a republican. He Is chairman of the house subcommittee which re cently completed an Investigation of the Japanese Immigration to Pacific coast slates. He would extend the IMNoii on High! Hour. On the occasion of his seventy third birthday, Thomas A. Edison, "consented" to take a half-day off from work to permit his friends to celebrate the anniversary. On the subject of work und the eight hour day he said: "I am not against the eight hour day or any other thing that protects labor from the exploitation at the hands of ruthless employers, but It r.nkes me sad to see young Americas shackle their abilities by blindly conforming with rules which force the industrious man to keep in step with the shirker. I huve always felt that one of the principal reasons for American progress in the past 'has been that every man had a chance to become whatever he want ed to be. It used to be fashionable to be ambitious. The employe planned to become un employer; the unskilled mm sought to I ecome skillful. A young man was not well thought of if he were not striving for a higher place in life. "Today I am wondering what would have happened to me by now If fifty years ago some fluent talker had, converted me to the theory of the eight hour day and convinced me that it was not fair to my fellow workers to put forth my best ef forts In my work. I am glad that the eight hour day had not been In vented when I was a young man. If my life had been made up of eight hour days I do not believe I would have accomplished a great deal. This country would not amount to as much as it does If the young men of fifty years ago had been afraid they might earn more than they were paid." First Baptist Church. Sunday school at 8:30. Preach ing service at 10:30 and 7:30. Sun beam Band 4 o'clock. Prayer meeting, Wednesday night at 7:30 and Girls' auxiliary Wednes day afternoon at 3:30. Everyone cordially invited to be present. There will be no preaching ser vices at our church Sunday as the pastor Is away in a meeting, but we are looking for you at Sunday school. The pastor greatly desires your prayers during this meeting that God's power be upon him and many souls be led to Christ. W. H. Sims, Pastor. Relating to Taxation by School Districts. Senate Joint Resolution No. 17. Pro'poclng an amendment to Section 3 of Article VII of the Constitu- "prlvllege of entry of any and all immigrants predicated upon their ubllity und desire to become real it possible for a Japanese to become1 loyal and patriotic Americans." Isn't a real loyal and patriotic American? Fort Worth Record. He has not proved such. The Chinese are here to accumulate money, hut he expects his bones or his ashes to go buck to China for burial. We do not recall thut uny Chinaman has ever shown uny spirit of American patriotism. Tlw Lynn County News admits thut It swiped this item: "Seventy-live dollur silk shirts are on sale in Ebrt Worth, and it's a dead cinch that there are fellows In Fort Worth earning $75 a month who will buy them. We do Insist, however, that till of a $5 shirt should be worn where It can Ih seen. No man can afford) to tuck In $40 worth of shirt tall." Any man who will pay $75 for a shirt Is a living proof of the adage concerning a fool and his money. : J. L. Martin has sold his Royse News-Times to D. M. Norwood of Comanche. Okla.
