George Clark; platform, Turn Texas looso and let her grow. The stocks of unsold lnmbor in in Southeast Texas are monuments to tho folly of following after blatant demagogues. Tho Gazotto styles all thoso who defend Milhjagainst its assaults as members of tho "tin pun brigado,'' but nobody pays any attention to tho Gazette. Tho ordinance requiring tire esoapes will be found olsowhore in Tub News. It will require very little troublo and expense to conform to the law and it should bo strictly enforced. The Deinoorats of Toxas will avail themselves of tho opportunity now offered them of putting a brainy man in tho gubornational ohair by nomi nating George Clark for govornor. HILL'S HISTORY. As proof of the truth of tho charges made againBt Hill by The News from time to time and discredited by somo of our exchanges refcronco is ruado to tho Now York rivoning Post of Feb ruary fith lSoi. That issue of tho Post gives an oxtonded history of Hill's political exploits charging him with muoh groatcr crimes than Tim News ever did and proffers undoubted toEtimony in support of the same. The News has said Hill never had an offioo ho didn't buy o'ther with monoy or prom ises of patronage. The Post starts out by charging that Hill openly bought votes in the city of Elmira every time ho ran for offioo, ami offers to prove it. As a member of tho firm of Smith and Hill, of Elmira, in 1880-7 or 1808. ho pcrsaud cd the farmers along tho Chemung oanal to claim damage to thu amount of $0,000,000 on aooonot of an overflow June 17, 1S5G. Smith and Hill waro engaged on a large contingent fee and'JHill was a motubor of tho Now York Assomblv when the last batch of bills was pass ed. Hill was near enough to Wil Ham' M. Twcod to bo a partner with him in the publication of tho Elmira Uuzetto though Tweed's stock in tho paper was in tho natno of "Some Per son" A prominent business man of El mira said "Hill was for Hill first and aftorward tho Damooratio party and rathor than yield to othor leaders ho will disrupt the party." He persua ded the Aqueduct commissioners to award a oontraot to O'Brien and Clark though their bid was $51,000 higher than the lowest bid This was in 18S6, just after he hud boon oleoted govornor for tho second time. It was proven after ward that Hill drew on O'Brien and Clark for campaign expeusos. The charges that Hill sold Olovoland in 188S, and that the governorship was the consideration, is substantiated by the Post and thore is not tho shadow". of doubt in tho minds of thousands of New York Detnoorats about its truth. Will the Damocratio party honor such a traitor by giving him tho nomination for president? Toxas will protest against it aud Texas will havo plenty of company. OGAIIOTTS. Tho Glon Roue Hearld prints this announcement : "For representative in congress from tho Waco district G. B. Gerald; platform, no bluffs tak on here. For particulars apply to Hon. J. II. Reagan." Kobert T. Bush, speaker of tho New York assembly, is an enthusias tic Hill man and actually proposes that Hill bo allowed to select the delegates from his state to tho na tional oonvention. Speaker Bush is eorious, too. Aftor giving his reasons for favoring suoh a sohemo, ho says : "I supposo if a resolution wcro in troduced at tho state convention to allow tho senator to choose his own delegates to Ohioago there would bo great groaning and gnashing of teeth, but I don't see why wo shouldn't let him choose them if ho wished to. Wo all want him to win, and if ho should think such a proocoding would help him to win I'd voto for it with all my heart." When tho Democratic party, or any other party in Now York or any othor state becomes so subservient toono inanitjsadaogorous party, Tho national organization perhaps oannot bo controlled so absolutely but a man who will by machiuo mothods bond tho will of tho party of his stato to his every purpose will try tho aamo moth ods on tho national organization and who knows to what extent ho will succeed? When Hill is made presi dent if suoh should ever bo it would bo tho doath knell of Demooracy in this country. Tho McGregor observer asks: "Can anybody toll whioh sido of tho fence the Waco News is on?" The News would refer Brother O'Brien to Gov. Hogg or Chairmau Reagan, but they might deny ever having read The News, so we will justjsay that be tween The News and Observer thero is a staked and ridered fence, judg ing from recent utterances of that paper. Wo arc for Clark, tho statesman, against Hogg, the demagogue1 Wo are for a commis sion law that will give tho railroads a chance to livo and extend their lines, and against the present Hogg law that gives the commission the power to confiscato overy mile of railroad in tho stato. Tho Observer is on the other side of tho fence, and it will got lonesome before the oampaign closes. People have ooased to complain about the horses occupying the side walks. They only ask now that tho horses won't bite thom. Remarkable Rescue.
