The Cannon delegates must be se lected before the middle of April, while the delegates which will nomi nate a governor will not he selected until August. If the Cannon forcss are defeated In their object of get ling the state delegation in tho na tional convention, and decided to hold the Deneen men responsible, they can punish Denoen In the Au gust primaries, me Deneen men, therefore, are almost compelled to "deliver the goods" to Cannon In advance. 'Although Taft and other candi dates have many friends In Illinois, especially In Chicago, the action of the state rommltteo In Indorsing Cannon has probably met with tbe approral of a majority of the Ite publloans of the state.

Cannon, speaker of the house of rep resentatives, It would have been Im possible for the recommendations of the President to have been enacted into law, and that the policy of the Ilepub!lcan party, as manifested by the President and enacted by con gress, cannot be better carried out and continued than by placing the administration of tbe same in the hands of the man whose authority and influence.

Ken tuckians are a religious pcoplo and all over that great state you see splendid churches and school houses which they have built, but there I has come upon Kentucky now a great persecution, us It vtere. They have a great populutlon there and God has seen fit to let a spirit of unrest come among the people. Consequent ly there Is a great opportunity now for Amarlllo and tho Tanhandle to do some advertising. Kentuckians: make substantial citizens. Hy doing this advertising we will get tho peo ple from old Kentucky to visit us here Just once. That'll be enough. Come here and stay one year and that fixes you. You may go back on visits or something like fhnt but like Ihe cat you'll always come back." and Rev. Howard expressed his sen timents In doping by reading some dialect verses of the man who visited other states but who Joyfully re turned to Texas. .- Music of the Old State. Following the pathos and senti ment of "Nelly Gray" sung by Mr. J. II. Anderson, Dr. J. E. Nunn took the floor on "Kentuckians in the Panhandle." "That music makes me homesick," said Dr. Nunn. "I'll allow no man to outdo mo In loyalty to my natlvo slate, and furthermore I'll allow no man to outdo me in loyalty to -the state of my adoption. I "have been a lOntueklan. I am a Texan. "When we speak of Kentuckians in the Panhandle we mean that they shall bo exemplars of all that is true, noblo and good, not foreigners here but part of the people, true to each other and for this great state, that they shall stand for right living, for education, for morals, for civic right eousness, for home and Its purity, for all that advances, profits and up lifts the community. As Kentuck ians In the Panhandle we are to be fellows In the fullest sense of tho word. I wish that we would ho to each as brethren and sisters. Just as a Mason wherever he may go knows that Iq the bands of a brother he is safe, so should Kentuckians feci Rafe in our hands. True to tho New. "Not that we are to forget our love for the old state. Tho man who leaves his mother's home for the bride to whom he has pledged him self at the altar does not forget the mother. It Is not that ho loves the mother less but that he loves the wife more, so with us it Is not that we love Kentucky less but that we love Texas more. Texas Is our bride now and as Kentuckians in the Pan handle, we shall be true to Texas, and thus show ourselves worthy of Kentucky. No man Is true to his mother who Is not true to his wife. Thus by working for this new home, by helping our city and our country and our state, we will bo true Ken tuckians In the Panhandle." "Far Away," sung with rare pow er aud feeling by Mr. Anderson, car ried his hearers back to other days. Wlira the F.aglo Soared. Dr. Wrather, who took the floor uext. protested that he felt like the young lawyer pitted in a esse against Daniel Webster, who after tho Im mortal Danlol had swayed Judge, Jury and even the young lawyer him self to tears, got up when his time came and plead that when the eaglo soared It was time for the bats to take to their roosts, and that he had no speech. . "I'nlted Wre stand, Di vided We fall." quoted the doctor, continuing. "That is the motto and emblem of our state and it should be the password and motto of our so ciety. 'In unity there is strength.' We want to unite our efforts to help ourselves here and to help the peo ple back there. I expect to Hvo and die in Texas,' but I have a very warm place ln my heart for Kentucky. I'm glad Kentuckians are here. I'm glad this society has been started, aud I'm glad to be a member of it." Another County Heard Front. Colonel Groom then started the definite Business of the evening by calling for W. E. Gee t0 present the papers for organization. Mr. Gee begged off from a speech but sue onded the suggestion of others (hat th present i ii n espiiclully good time I j advertiMt In Kentucky. llow ever, he pointed out that any disturb ance of llcli people might hear in Kentucky now could not be rharued Mo tils pari of (lit state because ho i a me from one of the mountain counties and In; further iue warn-1 Ing that If ihe night riders got out J of tin lr sec tion and startml 1 anything up lu tho mountains then, would he fewer night riders.. .So be fore anything like that might hap pen he recommended that the Pan handlers invite their fellows back In Kentucky to come here.

The truth of a former statement made In tho Enterprise to the effect that had Harry Thaw been a pauper Instead of a millionaire he would have dangled from the gallows or been electrocuted instead of being sent to the asylum, was verified in the-case of tbe Italian, Ouleseppe Alio who killed tbe priest in Denver. He was 'brought to a speedy trial and eighteen days after be had com mitted the deed was sentenced to death. The plea of insanity was made but ho lacked tho money to make It effective.

There Is some difference between shooting a mnn who is a menace to family happlnes and n cur twho. shoots a man down in cold blood with no personal provocation. The citizen, who throws his old cans nnd ashes and potato peelings and such like refuse In the streets and alleys may not be entirely de void of civic pride, for he has seen others do It and probably has not thought of the offense he is commit ting against the public welfare, but It Is time for him to stop and think. There Is nothing so attractive to a newcomer as a neat, clean city. If he walks alonjt the streets and finds the gutters filled with old "bird-cages, remnants of spring beds and a gen eral assortment of fruit cans, he is not likely to think much of the in terest which Is being- taken In the welfare of the city by those who make It their homo.

No doubt it will bo a great conso lation to the bereaved families of those who met death in the Quebec bridge collapse to know that the ac cident was not the fault of anyone, j but that, an engineer merely "guess ed'' wrong. It does not help matters much to learn that the reviewing en gineer whose duty It was to go over tbe original plans "guessed wrong" too. The accdeut happened on tho 29th of August last, and the royal commssion appointed to investigate and place the responsibility has just reported ' And the report Is a re markable one. The commission declares there was no neglect of duty nor even a lack of professional knowledge or care. The conclusion is that the two en gineers failed in their attempts to solve an extremely difficult prob lem. 'The cantilever "bridge called for was without precedent in magni tude. No such span had ever been attempted before. Experience was not available. Under these circum stances the engineers were compelled to resort to guess work, and they guessed wrong." Probably no more extraordinary explanation was ever made of an ac cident growing out of someono's gross incompetency. The bridge was merely larger than any other of its typo that had ever been built before, auu i!irreiur i in: engineers null 10 1 "guess" at the determinate dimen sions. And this monstrous structure was left to be planned by two en gineers who confess their incompe tency and that they "guufesed wrong." If this is a valid excuse, then the precedent established Is widely dan gerous. In this day of big things there are bigger things every day than there were the day before. Today sees larger steamships, deeper mines, longer bridges, taller skyscrapers, more wonderful tunnel enterprises and, in fact, there is constant expan sion into '"bigger things" every hour. If the royal commission was right, then the designers of all these "big gest" things are not to 'be held re sponsible for the creations of their genius. The wholo supposition is so absurd that it challenges the intel ligence of the world. Kansas City Journal. The bed quilt law that was to gov ern Oklahoma hotels has been killed.
