THE WACO NEWS, FRIDAY MAY 13 1892.
IQgtta BaUsi Sfctoxfti Judge Clark's Appointments. Brenham, Saturday, May 14. San Antonio, Tuesday, May l7 Gonialcs, Thursday. Miy 10. latonio, Saturday, May 21. ouston, Monday, May 23. alvcston, Thursday, May 20. ellvillo, Saturday, May 23 TO ADVERTISERS. The News will take advertising with the understanding that if it has not a larger kcal circulation than any daily pnper published in Waoo, no ohargo will be made for the advcrtiso inont. There is only one man Tub News had rather see president than Senator Carlisle. lie is that grand patriot and statesman who receives the nomina tion at Chicago. Gorman, Hill and Watterson all agree that Cleveland cannot be elect ed if nominated Their opinions might have some weight if they were not interested parties. Gov. Hogg aoted very indiscreet when ho so viciously attack id the Dallas News. The News has treated him fairly and talks to perhaps 1000 people to the governor's one. Senator Mills made his first speech in tho senate a few days ago against a steamship subsidy bill. It was short but to tho point, notwithstanding this however tho bill passed (I to 10. Editor Brann has renigaod the posi tion of editor of the Texas Ioo'noolast and Tom Bowers is left to fan the flics off Gov. Hogg all by himself so far as the Iconoclast is concerned. McLennan must have two good representatives in the twenty-third legislature and the people should make no mistake in selecting them. Thoy should demand honesty and ability and be satisfied with nothing less. In bis San Antonio spoeoh Governor Hogg said the railroad employes could not vote as they pleased in the primaries or the fidelity companies would drop their bond. Not more tban one out of twenty-five railroad employes aro bonded and those who are, pay tho premiums themselves and it is a very rare thing that one is canceled. Hogg is running on a platform of bare faced assertions with out any foundations whatever. His excellency had a real nice time riding over to Seguin tho other day. Ex-Governor John Ireland was with him, and tbey sat chatting pleasantly together until all of a auddon the gov ernor was struok with an idea. Now do not suppose for a moment that it killed him or even knocked him down. It did no more than knock him silly. He said ho had discovered that "in a curve the inside rail was placed much higher tban tho outsido rail for tho reason that it throws the weight of the train on the outside forces the gravity from tho center and keeps the train from running off the track." Ex Governor Iroland bad not seen as many curves as Governor Hogg, per haps, but ho didn't havo Clark after him whilo he was going over them and he had an idea that the outsido rail wa3 the higher and tho governor and tbo ox governor bet a bottle of beer on it and oillod in tho oonduotor to settle it. The governor lost and will always lose when he hots on his know ing anything. It is said that Gov. Hogg'and his railroad commissioners were informed in response to upeoial inquiry by ono of the railroads that therojwere on that lino just precisely as many ascending grades as deconding grades but they had gotten so little information from railroads thoy were oot inolined to believe it and regarded it, if true, as a very singular coinoi- lonce. Wonder if tho numerous tanks iloug the railroads of Toxas observod I by the governor has not convinced jiim of the existence of watered stooks. TIME TO DRAW THE LINE. The persistent efforts of that ele ment in tho Alliance which has as sumed tho riht to oontrol tho Donio oratio party of Texas, to uiaiutain the' rule established in ISqO permitting any man to enter the JDomocratio pri maries who would declare his allegi ance to Hogg without any other qual ification should be sat upon with such foroo at tho ooming primaries that it will bo eliminated from tho politics of Texas forover. Thero are numbers of voters who have declared their in tention to participate in the Demooratio primaries and at the same time openly declare their purposo to scratch as many of the nominees as they please. It has been tho oustom of the party in its liberality hetetofore to permit any man to assist in the selection of our candidates provided ho would agree to refrain from voting against the nominees. This only lessens the opposition ono half and is equivelont to halt a vote to each soratoh for the opposition oandidate. e havo reaohed a point in our political history when it is dangerous to the party organization to permit a con tinuance of this oustoui. If the Alii ance men desire to work out their re forms through the Democratic party they should deolare faithful allegiance to the party and abHe tho deoision of the party conventions. No one who will not do this ought to be permitted to participate in the primaries. It were better tor us to engage an opou and organized foe one that can be known by its banner, than to be eternally harrassed by determined enemies in the guiso of friends. A Hogs man who votes in oar primaries and at the same time declares his intention to not support Clark if nominated is no worso than a Clark man who refuses to support Hogg if nominated and one should bo excluded with as muoh determination as the other. It is time to diaw the line and presorve our pvrty organiza tion. If the opposition desires to align itself against us well and good. The News will be found fighting for the nominee of the Democratic party whoever he may be. A majority of ono on dear cut principles is better than 150,000 with a mixture of all the isms known to the politics of these degonerato times. Anti-Democrats should act manly and fight us openly and when they aro whipped everybody will know it. Tako off your disguise, gentlemen, and let us know who jou aro. "A short time ago," says the Ap peal-Avalanche, "Mr. O'Ferrell, of Virginia, as chairman of the commit tae of eleotions in the house, brought in the report that Mr. Rockwell, of New York, a protege of Sonator Hill's, was not entitled to his seat. Mr. Hill endeavored to influence the commit tee in tavor of Rockwell, but without avail. Ho then turned his attention to members of congress, and by cer tain shrewd work he had the report ,of the committee rejected. But he is not satisfied with this. O'Ferrell, who is a candidate for governor of Virginia, opposed him, and he now announces that the Virginian shall not only not receive the gubernatorial nomination, but that he shall not be returned as a member of congress. Mr. Hill is get ting too big for his boots; but it re mains to be seen whether the people of Virginia will allow a New York politician to decide whom they shall soleot for their governor, or send to congress. The Old Dominion will have fal'en upon evil times, indeed, if an upright ana able public servant is retired at such a behest." There will be nono but Demoorats allowed to voto in the primaries, if the oleotion offioers do thoir duty. A man who woL't agree to support the Demo oratio ticket has no right to h,elp make it. The praotioo of permitting the ememios to como into our pri maries is just what got us into this fix. Turn them out. ISDLT RESENTED Railroad Employes of Fort Worth aro Angry. 'ARB RAILROAD MEN PEONS?" I Hip Uuol l,,,u AKltaio Tliem mid They rc MbiiIiiu' it Iloiilul. (tovoruor lloitK" ItmiiK to Ilullroiid llo)ltrenoil. tho Fokt Worth, May 12. Tho fol lowing address being Mgntd by many of the railroad mon in tnis city ex plains itself. AKE RAIUIOAD SIRS l'EONS. To the railroad employe! ofTexti: Whereas, Gov. Hogg in his spoeoh at Denison and other plaoes said: "Numbers of railroad men has as sured mo that thoy wero for me, but they dared not express their aeuti ments. Numbers of them havo writ ten to mo wishing mo well in this campaign. Thoy aro afraid to open their mouths. I hope to live to see tho day whon a man can go up to the polls in this country and voto an opon ballot without endangering his means of subsistence. Down in South Toxas tho railroad men and darkies havo organized antioommission olubs, and now they aro trying to fool the white folks. This must be tho way thoy ex peot to turn Texas loose." Tho abovo is an exact quotation from the speech of Gov. Hogg at Donison, Corsicana and other plaoes; and Whereas, tho samo is an unwar ranted and unjust insinuation and in sult to honesty, independence, man hood and patriotism of all railroad em ployes in this state and implies that wo aro under a condition of servile peonago, too cowardly to assort our rights to freedom of thought and action politically; therefore, Resolved, that wo, tho undersigned employes of Texas, do hereby declare that the above statement, in so far as it may refer to us, or those of our companions as railroad employes within our knowledge, is entirely without foundation in faot and is wholly untrue. We further assert that in our politioal views and aotions wo aro as free to speak and act as the governor of Texas himself. Having no desire to bo conspicuous in this campaign, we make this state ment only to refute tho insinuation which has been oast at us by Gov. Hogg for politioal purposes. AT CORSIOANA TOO.
