Tiik Nkws will tako advertising with the understanding that if it has not a larger lecal circulation than any daily paper published in Waoo, no ohargo will bo made for the advertise ment, Look out for Hogg's "mercenaries." Look out essians. for the administration Hogg has distributed ono million dollars patronage. Hogg's mercenary troops more than a legion. numbor Mercenary troops have good exe cution, but their heart is not in their work. Thero is a life and death struggle between the mercenary forces of Gen eral Hogg and tho unpaid soldiery of a patriot. How much could Hogg's campaign managers raise for campaign purposes at ten per cont. of the ono million dollars patronage fund? Answer: Ten thousand dollars. An assessment of ten per cent of one million dollar pap fund that Hogg has the care of as Governor of the state, would swoll tho fund that Hogg's JSatioDal banker campaign committee have raised for him. Where many have not contributed by assessment, good machine service is a fair equivalent, aod a largo num ber of Hogg's appointees are in this way contributing their share to the Hogg campaign fund. They are giv ing their service. Those two National banks in Austin that arc reaping so much benefit from Horg's adminiitra Hon by the handling of the moans be longing to tho public fund can afford to help poor little Hogg who has said that he "did" not havo anybody to put np money for him. Governor Hogg says ho appointed Chilton to the United States senate "because he wanted to." A pretty good reason for an individual's aot, but not so good for the servant of 2,500,000 people. The peoplo turn ed Chilton out and put Mills in be oauso thoy wanted to. Do you see The charges made against Gov. Hogg by the opposition are against him as a public official, and not a single charge has been made against his private character. Upon the other hand the administration speakers, agents and papers are continually attackmg Judge Clark's private char acter, accusing him of dishonesty as a citizen and lawyer, of unscrupulous ness as a politician. Who is "slinging slime and slandir" in this campaign? Governor Hogg said at San Antonio that ho was "overwholmingly elected" governor on his record as attorney general. Certainly, certainly. Texas was overwhelmed by hia oleotion, if we use tho word literally. Overwhelm means to overspread or orush boneath something violent and weighty, that covers or oncompasscs tho whole; to immerse and boar down; to ovoroomo to cruth. (See Wob&tcrs Unabndgedl and tho condition of tho business in torests of tho state) oh yes, Hogg was "overwhelmingly elootod." A BUSINESS MANS FIGHT. "This is a business nun's country" says Tho Texas Traveler "and ovcry businoss man should havo a voico in its politics and a hand in the selootion of tho men who aro to govern. Tho Traveler is not a politi cal paper any moro than the commer cial travolers are politicians, but each has tho interest of his oountry at heart, and, as a patriotio oiticn, must contribute som ing toward'the gen eral good in tho exercisb of his privi leges of citizenship. Thero is a con test in Texas just now which ohal. lenges the attention of all tho people of tho state, whother engaged in 00m racroial pursuits or any other. In tho contest for state supremacy two par ties aro represented in tho guberna torial raoe the party of liberal idoas, of progress and of business prosperity, and tho party of mossbatkism, 4 of opposition to capital, to material development and to enter prise generally. If it wero simply a question of picferonce between political parties, a mere fight between politicians, tho Traveler would have no part in it, and its constituency, for tho most part, would bo at least a trifle indifferent. As it is, however, tho fight is between progress and mossbackism, between a faotion which would retard the devel opment of the stato's resources, build up a sentiment of hostility between tho urban and rural population, drive capital from the state and make pro ductive industry discreditable, and another faction which would extend and enlarge all the avenues of trado and industry, bring labor and capital closer togethor in bonds of sympathy and mutual intorest and push Texas ahoad in the race for material, indus trial and commercial supremacy. James Stephen Hog, who was carried into tho gubernatorial chair two years ago by one of those popular wavos which occasionally sweep over I the country, represents tho worst ele ments in his faction of the party, and his two years' administration of the state government bankrupted hun dreds of her citizens and set tho state back at least five years. Judge Clark, who represents the live, enterprising and progressive elements, seeks to wrest tho sceptre from Governor Hogg and give Texas a liberal and intelli gent administration. The Traveler's sympathy is naturally with progress and enterprise, and henco it is that the business men are almost unani mous for Ctark. WHY WE WILL WIN. While Judge Clark's campaign may not have the advantages that give strength and power to the administra tion's forces, it still has some elements about it that make a foeman worthy of any steely Governor Hogg is in possession of the fortress. He is intrenched and his fighting forces are numerous, but to a certain extent these are like the mercenary forces of an army, whoso interest has been pur chased. The million dollar patronage which he has dispensed," is the hold he has upon them. In addition to this, he has the advantage of having the friendship and assistance in his campaign of the chairman of the Democracy of the stale, but as an off set to this, he has the most vulnerable record that has ever been presented to a people for endorsement. In the newspaper world, Judge Clark has the advantage by large odds. He is sup ported by nealy every daily in the state except two of the larger ones, and they are fighting Hogg, and among tho weeklies, with rare excep tions, the stronger of them are sup porting him also and exerting a pow erful influence upon tho public mind. Their columns each week are filled with strong arguments, and appeals to the reason of their patrons. Indeed, trrere is" an activity among the news paper men who favor Judge Clark that is almost wonderful. One of the best indications of the strength of his cause is the almost insatiable demand fur ! literature. As suro as the people call for argument, so nre is the public mind awakened, and as the campaign with reference to Judge Clark is one of education, there is not a doubt but that within the next two months the reasons of men will be reached, and thon will follow the tonder impulse of the heart. The inroads that are being made by Judge Clark's friends through the press and on the stump, againts the efforts of Gov. Hogg to darken the reasons of men, aro being more apparent every day. Tho barriers of ignorance and bigotry, intolerance and prejudice, are fast giving away before the resistless torrents of logic and patriotism. The railroad employes, stung by the charge that they wero bulldozed by their employers, are indignant, as they should bo. Gov. Hogg has lost all the friends he had among them by his sweeping charge, accusing them, virtually, with being so many cattle to bo driven to the polls by bosses. Governor Hogg is making the same fight on the nowspapers tbat he has been making on the railroads for four years. Tho noxt thing ho will bo de manding perhaps will be a commis sion to regulate the newspapers of Texas. TEN PIANOS Bought for Pror. Edgorton's Oak Cliff College. Mr. Geo. W.
