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

ing a bolting attrude. Thoy have

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."

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

other objections to tho

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

of somo bravo honest Democrat who
