JUDGE CLARK AND THE FARMERS
A wull to doauilirintolligout farmer
of MoLcunan county was rocontly
heard to say, substantially, this: "I
would like vcrv inuoh to voto for
Judco Clark. In fact I havo been
waiting for an opportunity to do so for
a number of years, becauso I considor
him a man of such prc-cuiinont ability
aud unquestioned integrity that he
would mako a splendid governor. At
prosent I am inclined to suppoit Gov
vernor Hogg. I do not deny that
Governor Hogg has mndo serious mis
takes, but it has been the custom to
givo a governor a second term and I
havo to sco tho people refuse to ex
tend this honor to Governor Hogg. I
wish it was otherwise, beoauso I be-
liovo roally that tho country would be
bettor oil" with Judge Clark us the gov
ernor of tho state"
The frank admission of this worthy
man is but tho ropitition of what is be
ing said by a number of farmers in tho
state. They become attracted toward
Governor Hogg becauso of his strong
advocacy of the commission, and
under the influences of popular exitc
mint, he appeared to bo the most
prominent apostle of the commission
idea, and for this reason it has been a
difficult matter not only for the
farmers, but for other peop'c of dif
ferent vocations in life, to believo that
their commission champion could make
mistakes in the discharge of the other
duties of his office, independent of
those duties imposed by tho commis
It is only a question of timo when
all tbo farmers except thoso who will
not hear or bo oonvinoedby argumont,
will oome to the conclusion that in all
respects, in faot, in the majority of re
spects Governor Hogg was not fitted
for the place to which ho was elected.
Whothcr years of experience would
givo him the proper qualifications is
problematical, but he has not had that
experience, and he has made so many
blunders that all personal considera-1
tions should bo waived, and he should
be relegated to private life, where the
mistakes he may nuko will not add to
the publio woes. It is a fact that
when Judge Clark began bis campaign
it was almost impossible to find one
farmer, unless it happened to be some
personal friend, who favored his elec
tion, and now it can be safolysaid that
over the entiro stato of Texas the pros
perous and intelligent farmers, espe
cially those who have by thrift and
economy accumulated a competency,
and may now bo classed as the weal
thy farmers of tho state, aro all almost
without exception in favor of Judge
Clark for governor. The reason is
apparent. Their interests are larger
and their intelligence greater. Tho
former, perhaps influencing their
choice at the outset, and tho latter
giving stability to their choice. The
farmer mutt not mistake tho senti
ments of a preference expressed by
theso good men, though they arc,
probably, moro prosperous than tho
majority of tho farmers of tho state,
for ill advised or dishonest selections
nor can the humbler or poorer farmer
charge that these men are prompted
by sinister motives. It is their broad,
liberal view that has enabled them to
roaoh the conolusion that tho country
has need of tho experience, ability
and honesty of Judgo Clark. Tho
distress of tho last two years may be
changed to prosperity and happinesp,
and having seen Judge Clark in so
many ordeals, beginning with his ca
reer as a soldier, on tho bonoh and the
legal advisor of the state, thoy can
not but reach tho conolusion that with
that broad experience, and tho patri
otism that no honest man oan ques
tion, he is, perhaps, better fitted for
gubernatorial preferment than any
other man today in the state. Tho
farmer should not bo misled by ap
peals to his prejudices. George Clark
is his friend perhaps is a better
friend than Gov. Hogg for tho reason
that ho is equally sincere, and cer
tainly moro iutolligont. The farmers
of McLennan oounty should boar in
mind that if one of them or if ny

DRIVEN TO RESIST THE INSOLENCE OF
At Docatur a week ago Judgo L.
C. Alexander made a speech for Judgo
Clark. He went to Decatur by invi
tation aud the appointment was made
especially for him. Mr. Swa)no of
Fort Worth appeared on the socno
and asked for a division of time,
whioh was generously granted by
Judgo Alexander, who reserved tho
right to open and close the debate.
Judge Alexander led olF in an excel
lent speech and he scored sovcral good
hits against the administration
Swayno followed in a splendid delcnse
of the administration. When Judge
Alexander arose to reply the Hogg
men began to leave and as
they were largely in tho majority tho
audience was cut down to small pro
portions by their act of discourtesy.
Judgo Alexander fiuished his speech
to a respectful audience principally of
Clark men. The action of tho Hogg
men at Cameron alluded to yesterday
was another example of their intoler
ance and thoir fear of giving their
opponents fair play in tho fight. Tho
climax was reached at Cleburne yes-
tcrday when tho Hogg supportors re-
fused to allow Judge Clark to speak
for several minutes after Hogg had
finished his opening speeoh until ex
hausted in their attempt to yell him
into silence they were compelled to
sit and listen to the most eloquent
arraignment of the administration over
yet delivered. When Judgo Clark
had finished and Hogg arose to reply
the Claik men saw thoir opportunity
and then and there taught tho bigoted
followers of the governor a lesson they
will not soon forget. They had wit
nessed tho insult to their champion
and they proposed to resent it. Thoy
yelled and yelled, and every time
Hogg attempted to say anything they
would pitch their voices higher, and
thoy kept it up too until Governor
Hogg gave it up in dispair and took
his seat. Ho Baw the rebuke to his
friends was merited and did not at
tempt to speak again. While TnE
News deprecates such conduct as that
indulged by both sidos yesterday it
must be admitted that the pace was set
by the Hogg men and the Clark mon
acted only in defense of what they
considered to bo their candidates'
