Park & Sons, WholtiaU Agcut US, 177 and 1TV Sycamore St., Cincinnati, 14 At tho aftornoon session yosterday tho Clark meeting was called to order at 3 o'clock and Mr. W. 14. Doyle of Mexia editoi'of the Mexia Lodgor was oslled to the speakers stand. Ho said he was not a speaker but he had heard tho enemies of Judge Clark make so many mistake? that ho had the audao ity to get up beforo an audionoo oi intelligent Democrats and try to make a talk. At tho conclusion of Mr. Doylo's speeoh tho committee on poimancnt organisation of a working committee ontered and announced ready to re poit. The report read by Mr. H. C. Maok of Collin was as follows: To the Honorable Temple Hone ton, Chairman of Clark Club otid Elective Commission Con ference. Your committee on the plan of or ganization and work in tho campaign for the nomination of Clark as tho Deinocrtio candidate for governor of Texas and an electivo commission, would respectfully tecommecd tho following: First That there bo central oam paign committee to oonsist of hvo members, all of whom shall be oitizens of Waco, which committoo is to have lull control of tho organization of tho state by counties, and to prepare and send out such literature as may bo best calonlated to properly inform tho voters as to tho true icsuo in the present campaign through tho subor dinats ohannels hereafter provided for in those recommendations. And we recommend that Genoral Felix H. Robertson be the chairman of said central committee, and that ho appoint the other four members of said com mittee; and that such committee be empowered to add to its members such persons as thoy may think proper. Second That there be a campaign committee of five organized in each county, the duty of which committees shall be to organize tho oountios, which they will do by organizing a campaign commit tee of liye in each voting preoinot in tho county, which said preoinot committee Bhall organizo Clark and eleotive commission clubs throughout their precincts, rincts, and the chairman of each county committee shall be appointed bv the state central committee, and suoh county chairman shall appoint the other four members of the county committee and forthwith report their names and poBtofficcs to the chairman of tho central committee. Third that all the several commit tees and olubs herein provided for be required to see that Clark literatjro, providing for an elective commission, bo supplied to the voters, and that speakers bo sent to all county, pre cinct and club meetings within their jurisdiction. Fourth Wo further reoommond that the secretary of this conference prceervo a reoord of tho names and addresses of all persons prosent and favorablo to Judgo Clark's oandidaoy. Fifth That each member of the oonferenoo, and every friend of Judgo Clark's candidacy throughout tho stato bo, and is hereby requested to go to work for the completion of this organization and employ all legitimato means to attain tho onds of said or ganization, to-wit, tho overthrow of Hoggism and tho re establishment of pure Demooratio government by the oleotion of Judge Clark as the gov ernor of Texas. F. H. H011ERT8ON, Chairman, II. 0. Mack, Secrotary. Major Griman was called and en tertained tho audience for a few minutes. Mr. Dan Malven was called next and sot the audience to roaring. Mr J. W. Jones .earao next and re. viewed the history of Texas, from its first governor, saying that never before had thoro been suoh a protest against tho election of any man for the so oond term. In his speeoh which was a good one he mootionod Grover Cloveland inoidentally and the audi, once cheered vociforously. Mr. II. 0. Maok cf Collin was tho next spoaker. He enumerated the many charges brought against Hcgg, and waB applauded throughout. Capt. Geo. A. King of Falls was onllcd on and made a oatching speech closing with the explanation that he had two years ago gone to San Anto nio and voted for Hogg because he was instru.ted to do so by tho Dem ooratio convention of Falls county, but ho would havo hia right arm struck from his body before ho would do it again and if Falls instructed for Hogg and clooted him a dologate to Houston he would not go. Col. Phillip Newman of Houston was introduced by Col. Jones as the "Grover Cleveland of Texis " Ho mado a vigorous speech stating that Georgo Clark had led his people (Gorman) to victory in 1S87, and would freo TexaB from the thralldom of Demagogy. When tho speaker saidt"Ulark wants Texas bo loose" tho house wont wild over the earnest effort to translate the Clark slogan. Capt. Jonathan Lane, of La Grange, Fayette county, was called and mado a very interesting tnlrf. A motion to proceed at onco to en roll tho names of the delegatea present prevailed, and as a convenient method it was suggested, and the suggestion adopted, that some delegate from eaoh county hand in tho names of tho delegates from his county with their postoffioe address. This waB virtually an adjournment or recess and the delegates acattorcd. They were called togethor later to hoar tho report of tho committoo on platform and resolu tions. Adjournment was then had until 8 pm. TIIK NIOHT SESSION The convention was called to order at 8 o'olook by Chairman Houston and the resolutions reported in the aftor noon wore read again by J. b lc Comb of Harris os follows Waco, Texas, April 12, 1892. To the Honorable Temple Houston, Chairman Wo, your committee appointed to proparo a platform of principles upon which wo ask a change in tho admis tration and election of lion. George Clark governor, submit the following Assembled as Demoorats, hav ing at heart the best interests of ' Texas, regardless of past differences upon tho question of railroad regulation, and rocognizingl committee in that the administration ring is now trying to deooive tho people with a false issue, to-wit 1 hat the railway commission is in danger, deolare that the question as to the regulation of railroads in tho stato by a commission was settlod by tho pooplo by tho adop tion of the recent commission amend ment. To this command of the peo ple it is tho duty of all good citizens to conform in good faith. We pledge tho people that if the candidate of our choice Bhall bo nominated and elooted governor, that ho will not approvo or advise any legislation that will take from tho oommistion law any power neceseary to regulate the lailways of the state in the interests of the pooplo and we dcclaro that tho railway com mission is not an issue in this cam paign. Sooond Wo plodge our .adher ence to the timo honored principles of tho Democratic party, that all aov- ernments should rest upon tho consent of the governed, to the ond that wo perpetuate a "government of tho peo ple, by tho peoplo, and for the poo plo." Third All publio officers are pub lic trusts, and the officers aro publio servants, who should be hold to a rigid accountabilty to tho peoplo for all their offioial acts. Fourth Wo bolievo that tho peo plo are oupablo of self-government and fully qualified to elect their publio offioes, and believing that offioial pat ronago is one of the growing evils of the age, wo declare ourselves in favor of an oleotivo railroad commission, tho members of which shall be respon sible directly to the people for their ofTioiol acts. These fundamental principles have boon violated by tho prosent adminis tration; the right of the people to olect their publio offioers charged w.th gravo duties affecting tho publio welfare, has beon denied, and their appointment by the excoutivo retained for tho purposo of promoting person al ambition by tho oxeroiso of patron- Hgo. Proscription and rescrictivo legis lation has boen encouraged, to tho vast injury of tho material wolfaro of the state, and in derogation of that froedom most oonduoivo to tho happiness and prosperity of the peo ple. Public office has been bestowed by tho exeoutive as a personal favor. He has ropoatcdly violated the con stitution, he has stirred up stiifo among tho peoplo, and arrayed class against class. Ho appoalod to tho passions and preiudiocs by tho methods of the dem agogue; he baa misused the power of his high office and attempted to oxor oise undue influenco over tho legisla tive branch of the government; ho haB betrayed tho trust of thu Dotnooraoy, and has proved recreant to Dem ooratio usageB and principles, while masquerading in their garb. Thcso wo doclaro to bo tho truo is sues in tho pending political campaign, and upon them we appeal to tho De mocracy of Texas. Knowing that tho Hon. Georgo Clark, of Waoo, is a Domoorat too puro for corruption, too sincere to be tray, too wise and patriotio to igno rantly blunder, wo hereby pledgo our selves to give our hearty support to his oandidaoy for tho nomination and olootion as governor of Tcxbb, and earnestly rocommond him to our fol low countrymen as a true Democrat, having at heart tho intorest of tho whole people J. E. McCoun, ItoiiT. G. Street, J G. Dudley, T. J. Chookh lilCIIAKl) MollQAN, J. Lane, J. E. Butler, A. H. Graham, D. A. Nunn, Mose O. Hakris, L C. Alexander. Hon. L. C. Alexander offorod a. resolution condomning Gov. Hogg for denouncing tho railroad managors as robbeiB while making his canvass for Governor in 190, aud then aftor be ing elected trying to havo tho sacrod school funds delivered to those rob berB. Tho resolution was adopted amid applause. Hon. II. C. Maok called on Mr. C. E. Anderson of Travis to tell tho convention how the oampaign ia pro grossing in Travis, ths onomy's head quarters. Mr. Andorson responded and after explaining the mannor in which tho Claik forcos wero organizing in his county, which begun with a Clark Demooratio elub in Austin with Cflu members ho gave an account of tho position of the enemy at its headquarters. He al luded to the Hogg mooting list Saturday nnd gave tho names of the five membcrB oi tho state campaign chargo of tho Hogg campaign. lio, however, boforo calling these names of this committee, road the plank in tho San Antonio platform condemning national banks and doolariLg tho unaltorablo opposition of the Domooratio party of Toxas to them. Then ho called tho names of tho 111 on who aro managing Ilogg'a campaign as follows W. R. Hanby, cashier of tho American National bank of Austin. Goo. W. Littlefiold, president of tho American National, of Austin. kd. IIoubo, director of the City National bank, of Austin. A. P. Woldridge, presidont of tho City National bank of Austin. )r. 11. M. Swoaringon of Austin, stook holder in tho Alamo bank of San Antonio. Mr. Andorson called attention to the fact that while tho Hogg support ers woro claiming that ho stood pat on tho San Antonio platform, whioh de nounocd national banks their cam paign was boing managed by nations! bankers. HON. BETH HIIEPAIID. Tho audience bcoamo somewhat im patient to hearSoth Shopard. At tho conclusion of Mr. Anderson's talk, whioh was very interesting, Col. Shop ard was called out and was introduced by tho oh air man with tho roiuark : "With such a oandidate as Ceorgo Clark and Biioh supporters as Scth Shopard wo cannot fail" Col. Shepard was reooivod with deafening applause His speech was an ablo presentation of tho issues, and closed with n peroration on ' Turn Texas Loose" tho Clar' slogan. Col J. W. Jones of Houston pro Bided while Hon. Tomplo Houston addressed the convention. His spcoch was well rcooived and liberally ap plauded.
