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
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
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.

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.

We certainly appreciate having

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
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.

I like to have my friends come In.

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

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

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

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.

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

the Japanese Immigration to Pacific

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."
