Senator George W. Tyler was just olosing his speech Stturday when The News wont to press. Ho was lollowed by ex-Ilepresentativo H. 0. Mack of Collin county who pledged the threo votes of old Collin for ltoger Q. Mills. Before the resolutions offered by Judge Clark were put to a vote that gentleman snoko briefly as follows: Mr. Chairman, I do nut wish to make a speech. There arc eontlemen from a distauco, whom the people assembled here desiro to hear. Theso people oan hear us any time, and I will bo brief. In support of theso resolutions, however, I will state this is not a per sonal fight, but it is a fight for a great causo. Tho Demooratio party of Texas is not bouod up in tho fortunes of anv one man. Tho Demooratio party of Texas doc3 not stand or fall with the political fortunos of any one man. But when tho man himself, by virtue of his political servioes, has bo identified himself individually with tho great issues of tho party and an attempt is mado to strike him down by a combination, his personality is so inerwoven with tho fate of tho party that a blow at him necessarily becomes a blow at tho party, and when ho goes down the party must go with him. It is tho duty of the party, un der such circumstances, to lift him up and in so doing thoy aro simply lift ing the flag again. Wo arc here for this purposo today, not to repino or complain at tho de feat of Roger Q. "Mills for speaker, but to reassert our faith n the princi ples of whioh he is the porsonal em bodiment and to declare that these principles shall not be yioldod or surrendered, oomo what may. Tho Dsmocratlo party would livo if Roger Q. Mills Bhould dio. Tho Demo oratio party would livo if any one hun dred men would die, bocause its prin ciples are imperishable. '"N (TBat, said ho, tho Democratic party cannot afford to approvo the sending of a tried and faithful loader to the rear. We have mot hero to stand by pledges of the last twonty years, and in standing by thom wo stand by tho most glorious principles ot gooa gov ernment. "Wbat a speotaolo it would bo if we should turn our backs on tho man who always stood in tho foro front ot tho fight. Wo do not condemn theso men wno oyposo jmus, lor sucn is thoir right, but wo do say that tie do feat of Mills is a stop baokward in tho groat reform of whioh ho is tho apostle, aud tho Democrats of Texas cannot afford to tako tho back traok upon the roform, for such a step means disaster to tbo oauso and defeat to tho party. Wo intend to stand by Mills in solid phalanx, bo cauEO in so doing wo aro standing for tho right in tariff reform and we servo notioo upon tho trimmers and traders that Texas Democrats do not intend to abandon the principles for whioh thoy have evor fought, nor sao rifioo the man who has ovor stood in tho forefront of tho battle fighting valiantly for tho accomplishment of such roform." - JUDGE OERAU) S SPEECH mado aftor tho adoption of tho reso lutions was an oloquont tribute to Mr. Mills.

"There is a combination" said he "reaching from Now York to Washington City and from Wash ington to Texas and its solo objoot is to sell out the Demooratio party to tho spoils gang. Thoy havo absolutely fixed everything and all wehavo to do is to go andvoto tho ticket they give us Thoy arogato to themselves the exclu sivc right to say what shall be the Demooratio policy, who bhall be our oandidato for president, senator, gov ernor, everything. Tho Dallas Bru nette (referring to Barney Gibbs) is in it I understand and says Texas is going for Hill. Texas will do no such thing and if this combination succeeds in soouring tho nomination of Hill tho defeat of tho party is certain. I for one and thero 8e thousands liko me, will not enter a campaign for spoils. I will not stultify myself and my friends by turning my back upon the principles for whioh wo havo battled for years, believing them to bo truo and enter a Gght whero tho spoils of office only is at stake. I beliove that "to the viotors belong tho spoils" and what has bsen peraded as oivil sorvioo reform is an abomination to mo. Bat no official should bo un ccrcmously bounoed for political causo. Thoy should all be allowed to remain if they aro oompetent un til thoir term oxpires and thon every one of them should be succeeded by a Democrat. Judge Gorald then turned his attention to the Stato administration. Ho said if tho extra session was called ho thought Gov. Hogg ought to include in that oall a recommendation that an appro priation bo made to establish a tri daily paper to give Chairman Reagan a chance to defend tho railroad commission. Tbe daily pa pers must bo allowed to print somo news, and if thoy aro filled, as they havo beon, with letters from Mr. Rea gan, thoy don't havo room tor any thing elso. The speaker said he would vote for Mills unless tho Democrats of Mc Lennan oeunty ropudiatod tho resolu tions adopted by that meeting, and if thoy did that and instructed him to vote for somo one elso, ho would do bo, providod that somo one elso was not Horace Chilton. Ho would resign his office beforo ho would vote for Chilton. He gavo as his reason Chil ton's rcoord in tho famous Internation al railroad oaso. Judgo Gerald said he Mi ad first op posed the railroad oomWssion, but had submitted to tho will pf the ma jority of the poople when tho amend ments woro adoptod.
