Tho Lorena Democrats want to meet their brethren of the cntiro oounty at the court house in Waco next Saturday to express a preference for gjvernor. Tho Dallas News correspondents aro polling their towns for governor. It is astonishing to observe tho opposi tion to Governor Hogg. Ulark leads tho field handsomely. Tho Tyler Kecord says: "Waco can boast of her b a d mon and fight ers, but Tyler is a combined colony of sprinters, politically and otherwise." This is from an expert. Tho Now York Hill demooraoy has two or throe planks in its platform on the money question, and every one of them boiled down opposes frco and unlimited ooinago of silver. Tho anti-Hill Democrats aro not doing their oausn any good by assuur ing a bolting attrude. Thoy have shown already tint Hills ability to carry Now York is problematical and the uational convention will do the jest. Tho Hill convention jumped back over Cleveland's administration and ondoised Tilden as governor of New York and then hopped back and Blobborcd all over Hill. Tho spoilsmen are as thick in New York as are tho sprinters in Tyler. It will bo observed by noting the report of the Deuiooratio meeting in Lorena, published in this issue, that a request is made for the Democrats of McLennan oounty to meet in Waco noxt Saturday, the 27th instant, to express a preference for governor. As that is the day Judge Clark will speak in Wcathertord and quito a number of his friends in Waoo desiro to go to Weathorford to hear him, Tin: News suggests that tho meeting be deferred until some timo noxt week. Any timo after Saturday would answer. Tyler is tho headquarters, the jowl town, so to speak, for Hogg's cam paign. Rumor has it that somo of Hogg's lieutenants want to be cap tains end tho captains want tho lieu tenants to "stay whar dey is" and that tho Hogg machine is Badly in neod of repairs. The following from tho Record is excellent oireumstanoial ovidonco that tho rumor is based upon faots : "There are somo of tho smartest politicians in Tyler on earth. Tho only trouble with a real, gonutno smart politioial is the fact that, whilo ho is thoroughly posted, kuows all hip political enemy's weak points, can tell you precisely how to knoak 'em out, yet never accomplishes anything ex cept to rolieve his overcharged giz zard of a wonderful amount of gall and gas. Blessed aro tho men who do something." Wo have got tho sprintors on tho run. NEW YORK'S CANDIDATE. j The action of tho Now York Stato Democratic convention at Albany yes terday was exaotly what was oxpectod Tho endorsement of Hill by tho much ino was & forogone conclusion. It could have- been aocompliahod with muoh more foroo two months later but that would not uavo servod tho purposo of Mr. Hill. His object was to get an expression from New York in advance of any othor stato and with tho cry that to win tho Domocraoy must let New York name tho candidato, ho hoped to browboat tho other 43 states into following suit. Ono littlo act of Hill's, howovor, will prevent Texas from sending Hill dolegatos to Chicago eveu if there were m other objections to tho Tammany candidato. It was his in terference in tho speakership fight which had moro to do, perhaps, than any other influonco with the defeat of R Q Mills. Representative Stahl- neoker. of New York, had been voting steadily for tho Texan until Monday he recoived a telegram from Hill to 'quit voting for Mills, that Now York was against Mills." Ho voted for Crisp on tho next ballot, broke tho dead lock and in the rush from the other candidates Crisp got a small ma jority. Every well informed Toxan knows what it was done for. Mills. tho leading exponent and the SAUNTERINGS. I wont to honr Nranu's looturo last nlglit ami as I camo down Austin Htroot this morning a man callod mo a tludo nnd I callod lihn a Mokminn. Ills funoriil will occur tomorrow. I ohargo nothing for this but you will find It very valuable J'ltzlln would tuako you pay $25 for stioli a potntor, but J got it for notliltiir ami havo no right to soil It. Wlion I asked Hrann yostorday what ho meant by his uso of tho word Mokaunii, ho said: "If you haven't sense ouough to know, come to tho city hall to-night and I will toll you." Tho candidato Is at largo now. Ono of them struck mo tho othor day but notliiaingo was done Ho told mo to put his niuiounoomout in tho pa per. I hold out my hand. Ho grasp od it and said don't mention i t; and I haven't moutioued It yot. wus embodiment of the great tariff reform idea in tho Do mocratio party. Mills' elevation to tho speaker nioant an aggres sive fight on that issuo not only in congress but in the noxt campaign. Hill knew that upon a progressive tariff roform platform ho stood no show whatever of getting the nomina tion but believed Mr. Cleveland would be chosen as tho logioal candidate, and rathor than see tho patty choose his New York rival again to lead the Democratic hosts he lent his every effort to striko down the great Texan aad bury with him the principles of his party. Texas has a noble duty to perform. It is to send a solid delega tion to Chicago instructed against the man who defeated her candidate for speaker and to strive unfaltering ly for the restoration of the inscrip tion "Tariff for Revenue only" on tho party banner and for tho nomination of somo bravo honest Democrat who will light for that principle. The New York scap convention in struotcd for Hill. Tin: Ninvs i" imiisv. Tho peoplo who Ilvo on "Wash ington stroot have named tho electric car which runs up and down that thoroughfare tho ''lltnltod express " It Is said to bo the fastest electric car In the world. Two gentlemen got aboaul this car at tho corner of Washington and Fourth yester day and as the motorman pulled tho throttlo open, one of tho gentleman took out his watch and said he would timo the car; when ho arrived at tho othor oud of tho lino ho looked at his watch again and yelled: "Damnation; its sooner than it was wli6U wo started. " The real estato mon aro feeling very much encouraged just now. Thoy are not soiling a great deal of property but thoy aro having a groat many in quiries. It Is true that Inquiries don't pay very large crmmissions but it costs very littlo to answer them. Somo of our real estate men say Waco is on the preclpico of it great boom. Tho building of nntatoriums and san itariums is attracting a great deal of attontion now and many predict that those will mako Waco the best city in Texas. A man, apparently deaf and dumb, walked into McKonnou's drug store this morning and handed ono of the gentlemanly attomlnuts a card on which was written: "Does Mr. Hlank stay horu'."' The clerk wrote "no" as distinctly as possible on the card and handed it Lack. Then tho doaf mute wrote the question: "Can you toll mo whero lie stays?" Tho clerk wroto in answer that ho did not know the gen tleman. Tlien the doaf muto turned and started out and roared: 'I'd liko to know where that damn follow is." Till: SAl'NTKllEIt.
