The political meeting at Padgitt's, Park Saturday night was largely at tended, principally by citizens of tho third ward, but in point of boisterous conduct and disrespeot to tho speak ers was not unlike every other held during the present municipal cam paign. It is stated, however, that it far surpassed Friday night's meeting at Riohio ball for peaoo and quiet. Tho Park Theatro being occupied as a Bkating rink tho meeting was held beneath (the trees in tho open air. Order was called at 8:45 and Mr. James I. Mooro clooted chairman. The reporters of tho daily papers were elected secretaries. By agreement among themsolvos the candidates spoke in the order re ported below, Maj. John F. Herbert occupying the stand first, in substanoo as follows: 1 am before you as a candidate for mayor. I want, in the outset of my remarks to disabuso your minds of ono thing. It has been roportcd on tho streots and in tho papers ttiat i am runninn- in tne in terest of McCulloch. Suoh is not the case. I am running in the interest of John F. Heibert and for good gov ernment for Waco. I bolong to no clique, no ring, no gang. I am run ing beoausc 1 want the oflico and think I will make a good mayor. Mayor MoCullooh is running bocauso ho wants the peoplo to endorso his administration. Mayor Hinchman is running to vindicato his record, He is a olever man, but would do much better out on a ranch than as mayor of Waco. I havo nover done liko he has, nor will I ever do so, that is to furnish and distribute kegs of beer to the peoplo to drink, hoping by bo doing to influcnco their votes. This is what was dono in East Waco a few days ago. Mr. Goodo says if ho is electod mayor he will bo the humblest and quietest man in Waco. We don't waat a silent mayor, wo want a rustler who will look ont for the best interests of tho city, a man who has some get up about him and who will do bis whole duty. Mr. McCulloch is a number one, good man, but ho is too easy. He don't spur tho officers up enough. If I am elected mayor I will be mayor. Wo need a great rovolu tion in tho counoil. If you paid more attention to tho oleotiooAof aldermen thero would not be so noh complaint against the mayor. What I boliovo is right I will do regardloss of conse quences. When I went into tho council a man who was fined $1 had to pay $12 or $15 in trimmings beforo be got out of it. I introduced a resolution to do away with that in famous porquisito system. It was an unpopular movomentat first, but I kept ut it till I carried my point. It is said by some that the mayor has no power, but this is a mistake. If any thing is done in tho counoil bo doos not like he can veto it. When I first went into the counoil there was no systom in the oity secretary's office. The records woro kept in old pots, jars, tin cans and whatover was most handy, and nothing could be found when wanted, but now the business of that office is so systemized that the scorotary can lay his hand on any thing you may want in an instant. Waco to-day is in a better financial condition than any oity in Texas, she haa more and better im provements than any other, and yet people are complaining. Tako a busi nesslike view of tbia matter. Tho creditors of a merohant may hear re ports that he is about to fail and think they will close down on him to savo themselves, but ho tolls them to hold on. He takes them in his storo and shows them his stock of goodB and says: Here is my capital, when times get better and I can dispose of these goods 1 will pay you wnat i owo you. The question is asked: "VShoro is our money?" I'll tell you whoroit is. It is in tho many miles of splendidly improved streets, in our fine bridges which will last a lifetimo, in our effic ient firo departments which wo Bhould feel proud of, in our sower rystom and in our sohool buildings which those of no city in TexaB can comparo with. Tako theso as our assets and place them on one sido of tho account and our liabilities on the other and you will sco wo aro not in such a bad fix. If I am elooted mayor I will boo that Waco keeps moving steadily on "Her bright star of prosperity will oontinuo to shine out in lottors of gold and wo will move on to glory." Mr. R. J. Goode was was the noxt speaker. He said that ho was charged with being a friend to tho laboring people. So I am and hopo 1 always will bo, but I don't expect to bo eloot ed alono upon their votes. If I am elected I will treat all alike whether rich or poor. I am tho ono who raisod tho tho wages of the laboring people. 1 grant Major Herbert tho credit of vcting for it with mo but ho did not raise his voice in favor of it, ho did not fight for it as I did. He ought to remain alderman of the Fifth ward, for which position his people endorsed him. 1 am hero because I havo a record as alderman in tho past and I believo 1 will bo elected by a large majority. If I am elected no man nor sot of mon oan influence my vote upon any matter. I may not always bo right but will have tho courage of my oonviotions and represent tho peo ples interest and bo mayor. Tho per quisito question is a dead issuo but 1 was tho first to introduoo a resolution to abolish it. It was brought about by me and by no ono else. 1 havo no chargo to make against any man run ning, but I do say that tho presont ad ministration has beon tho most ex travagant ono wo havo had for ton years. I say that the money roooived for thoso bonds has been misappro priated, and spent in tho wrong place not beon proporly distributed where improvements wero needed. West and Herbert aro just as much responsible as anyono else, thoy were in tho council, but will never bo thero again. Tho monoy expended in going to Now York was not too muoh but this trip wasn't nocossary. Every dollar spent has bceu well spent. Judge John O. Wost next took tho stand and made an exocllent speech. He said: "Wo havo met hero under tho troos, God's first tom plo to decide what our laws shall bo and who shall administer them. Next to tho worship of God no higher duty devolves upon us than that of Boloct- ing our officers. Tho gentlemen who havo preoeeded mo havo said 'I, 1, I' till thov aro hoarse. I am tired of so much 'I.' When I am eleotcd mayor I want you to say 'ho.' I want you to givo us all a fair chanoe, Hold us all up and sorutonizo us and select the best man. If you seloot any ono of my opponents I will submit and sup port him heartily. I want to warn you against falso reports circulated just upon the cvo of election when it is too late to deny or correct them. Suoh things have been done and good mon thus defeated. A great doal has beon said about my platform and that I voted tho other day to sell tho $30, 000 sewer bonds at 95 when I had declared in mv platform that I was opposed to Belling Waco bonds at less than par. My platform is a general statement of my position on the most important principles involved and no other candidato has had tho nervo to como before tho people stating what their views arc on theso questions. When my oard, with my platform, was printed a resolution was on tho books authorizing W. E. Hawkins, ohairman of th finanoo committeo to seo tho bonds at 95 conta and I say that it was a good deal, after the matter had been gotton in such a muddlo by an attempt to sell thom at 91 cents. 1 am in favor now of selling tho $100,000 street improvement bonds at 95 cents, but if I am elected mayor I shall oppose tho salo of any more bonds at lesB than par. We arc, now about dono with this oanvaBS. The peoplo want rest. If you don't want to vote for me next Tuesday, voto for some ono else. If yon aro satisfied with tho administration just past, ratify it by returning it. Mayor Mo Cullooh, though sick,, was on hand and spoko next. Me Baid no was a candidate beforo the peoplo for re oleotion to tho offioo of mayor of tho city of Waco. Major norbert had made in his speech a thorough vindi cation of his administration. He tolls you about our improved streets, our find bridges, our excellent system of public free schools, and states that everything is all right. Mr. Goodo stated that ho raised tho wages of the laboring mon tho truth is, that as chairman of tho street committeo, I introduced that resolution and did all I could to havo it adopted. Mr. Wost says ho has givon you a platform. That platform haB dono more to do feat him than anything olso. During tho time that Mr. Hinohman was mayor ho had a vory intelligent son-in-law who was and still is oity secretary. Had it not been for Jonoy Jones Mr. Hinohman never could havo hold tho offioo of mayor. If you elect him ho may do vory well till the term of offioo of Jonoy Jones ox pires whioh will be in ono year from this timo, thon you will bo virtually without a mayor for one year, unless tho peoplo seo fit to ro-eloot Jonoy Jones city seorotary, No ono over know whero Hinchman stands. Ho has no politics and has always been on tho fenoo in every question of im portance involving a principle for the good of tho peoplo It is said that I am too easy and that 1 will not mako u fight for what 1 think is right. I refer you to tho fight 1 mado for tho charter we aro now living under against a dologation of tho best tal ent Waco affords in opposition to mo at Austin. I leave this to Mr. Mooro, who is here, and who was agiinst mo at and tho proposed charter at the time, to say whether or not I mado n determined fight for it. (Mr. James I. Mooro said that suoh was tho fact.) I have tried 2500 oases as police judge, have had only ono appeal and not a singlo reversal. Hinchman presided for two years and today cannot tell a rulo of order on our books. Hinohman, Goodo and Herbert say they want a man lor suporintendont of our public sohools. I say that Mrs. Willie D. House is a noblo woman and under her administration as superintendent we have an cxoollcnt system of public sohools. That she is a oapablo and efficient sohool superin tendent cannot bo gain-said and to mako an unwarranted fight against hor without juBt canso, but simply be causo sho is a woman aod uot entitled to vote, is vory wroiiK. 1 say wo havo the best system of publio free schools of any oity in Texas, and as good a superintendent in Mtb. House as could bo obtained, whethor man or woman. We owo less monoy than any oity in Texas, and part of our bocdou in debtedness is tho old Texas Central railroad bonds, Evory dollar spont has been well spont. 1 am in favor of improvements, of progress. We ought to continue to improvo our streets and givo the working men em ployment. I lay no espeoial olaims to tho office, it belongs to tho peoplo,but I havo done tho best I could under all tho circumstances and havo the con sciousness of knowing that I havo dono right. I would thank you for your votes and if elected I promiso to continuo to do my wholo duty as mayor, administer tho laws of tho city with even-handed justice to all aliko and try to con tinue in tho line of progress which has marked my administration herotoforo. Major A. Hinchman was tho noxt spoakcr. Ho mounted tho stand, pul led off his coit, as usual, and started out in a high koy: "Oh I ye mon of Waco. I am not here to abuse any of my oppononts. I have beon to Kan sas City on business and to my ranch in Hamilton county making a living for my family and have had but littlo timo to speak. 1 havo beon stabbed in tho back by thoBe who I havo bc frionded in timo of need. It has been roportcd by a sot of thiovos, scoundrels and liars that 1 didn't pay tho mechanics for building my house. This is a ho. I paid tho men $1,000 more than they wero ontitlod to undor tho contract when the contractor couldn't pay them. Tho man who steals my pooketbook steals trash but ho who steals my good namo robs me of that which do'es not eurioh him but makes mo poor indeed. 1 liko Mo Cullooh as a neigobor but if ho was ever cut out for a mavor he was spoil ed in tho mak'ng. 1 can saytho eamo thing about Herbert and Wost. I want to hit a man who has triod to hit me. Tho supporters of McUullooh, Herbert and West havo treated mc honorably but Goodo's supportors have dono me dirt. Thero is a man who calk himself a contractor whose ini tials aro Ulaudcr. Ho is a low down cowardly cur, an anarchist, a liar. I was driven out of a meeting last night by Goodo men and not allowed to bo herd. Is my record not clean and white? If not why don't Homeono como up and show whero it is not. I was mayor for two years and tho first man who ever sold a dollars worth of bonds at par. Wo havo the grandost oity in Texas and when it comes to selling her bonds bolow par 1 am not in it. If the old man is let alono for fifteen or twohty days ho will soil tho $100,000 of street improvement bunds at par, and will stako my reputation upon it. If you oloot mo mayor of your city I wi'l bo mayor for tho poorest man as well as for the banker. Vote for a man who you think will do tho most good for tho greatest number of pooplo, and will pay no bills oxcept thoso endorsed by the finanoo committeo. i At tho oonolusion of Major Hindi man's speooh Mr. J. P. OlarL' mountod tho stand to reply to so mo usporcoins thrown at him by Major IILohman, but ho was jooicd so by tho crowd that it was with difficulty that ho -ipoko at all during his epcoob, in which noth ing of interest was said, cries of "got down, pull him down, sling him out," etc, woro loudly shoutod by tho crowd. Major Ilinohman'a only reply to him was: "lam not shooting at small game.
