Night riding In Texas Is like scarlet fever In Bryan very few ca8es and they of a mild type. H. Clay Pierce will start to Texas Sunday. The sheriff of Travis county Is chairman of the reception commit tee. Those New York women who kissed Bryan In the presence of his wife took I aa unfair advantage of him "The ! brawn things!" Only four days till the election and. oout every tenth . man you meet thinks he can tell what the result Is going to be, but the truth Is nobody knows. A newspaper correspondent writes: "New York Is a seething cauldron." The odors wafted down this way Indi cate that Norman Mack is cooking Roosevelt's goose. The human heart, weighs eight to ten ounces after death, of course. In life the heart Is sometimes as light as a blossom in June and at other times as heavy as the load of Atlas. Hearst Is dead and Taft Is speech less. Bryan's voice rings clear and thrills the hearts of the American peo ple as they were never thrilled be fore. ' It Is claimed, and is probably true, that Bexar county will give a majority for Simpson. For ways that are dark and tricks that are vain San Antonio politicians are always peculiar. Herman Rldder, treasurer of the national democratic committee, and his three sons contributed $37,000 to the Bryan and Kern campaign fund. The Rldder family evidently believe Bryan's chance to be elected is good. There will be trainloads of home seekers from the North and East com ing to Texas this fall and winter, and some of them would locate In Brazos county If they were Invited to come and see what we have to offer. Public opinion In Texas is bo pro nounced against the night riders that they are not likely to do much dam age. The Farmers' Union deserves much credit for nipping the evil In the bud. Already some Texas newspapers are prophecying the acquittal of H., Clay Pierce. Don't prejudge the case. Let him have a fair trial and be convicted or acquitted according to the law and evidence. Mexicans have taken possession of the cotton fields in this country simply because the negroes have been too lazy and trifling to work at any wages as a class. There are some honor able exceptions. Cuero Record. The Columbus (Ohio) Press Post says: "There are 1,500,000 women in Texas, all of whom are In favor of Bryan." Yes, but not one ot them has ever hugged or kissed him in public, as some of the New York women did. Houston has 22 candidates for the office of Justice of the peace, made vacant by the death of the Incumbent. And pure patriotism is the motive of every one of them. So wonder Hous ton is proud. Orvllle Wright, the famous aero plainist who was severely injured In a fall with his machine several weeks ago has recovered sufficiently to be able to walk on crutches. He expects to return to his home at Dayton to day and will resume his experiments shortly. Throueh the treachery of a fac tion of the democratic party in Ken tucky that state elected a weak and vacllllatlng governor, who has proven himself wholly Incompetent to handle th nicht riders. In contrast, the united democracy of Tennessee elect ed a governor" with a backbone who - - i i . . ra rounding up me iawurenKei dozens and scores and turning , them over to the courts, which will proba bly break the necks of the ring lead ers. Texas democrats will remember Kentucky on election day. Land now selling for f 15 to $40 an acre will bring as high as $200 if the present rush of homeseekers can be maintained for ten years. Leastwise that Is the opinion of Immigration agents who have been with Texas roads since this feature of settling up Texas was established. Comparatively 1 - .1 CONSTITUTIONAL AEltbnENT Relating to Pub Ic Schools to be Voted on November 3d, 1908. 1 he executive cummittue for the conference for education in Brazos sounty' gives the follow ing reasons for voting for the amendment to Section 3, Article 7, of the state constitution. 1. It is right and a time hon ored American principle that a majority should rule. The amend ment substitutes a majority rule for a twp-tliird rule in local school tax elections. 2. The amendment means lo cal self-government in its purest form, leaving it to a majority of the resident tax paying, qualified voters of a school district to say when they want a local tax for school purposes. 3. A vote for the amendment is not a vote for a tax. The amendment only gives the right for a majority of the property owning voters of a school district to levy a tax for school purposes when they need it. The same majority could vote the tax off when they did not need it. Dis tricts that do not need a local tax would not be required to levy it., 4 The amendment would op-f-n the way in the country dis tricts for better school houses, better and more capable teach ers, longer school terms where needed" and the establishing of country high schools. Cities and incorporated towns are already clothed with power to provide for efficient schools. It is right that the rural districts should enjoy the same privilege upon like conditions and to the same extent. By establishing good rural schools the country child-1 ren can be educated at home, which is the greatest school problem in Texas today. 5. Statistics from the last bi-1 ennial reportof the Superintend ent of Public Instruction of Tex as shows the following results: There are 1124 school houses for white children in the country districts of Texas in bad condi tion. If all the children within school age were to start to school there would not be house room to hold them. There would be more than 144,000 without a priced so little cost, Men's and Young Men's Furnishings in New Shades Greens, Olives, Greys, London Smoke, n fact every shade nere tnat desk. In the country districts 47 out of every 100 are out ol school all of the time the schools are in session. Seventy per t.ent of the children live iu the country districts. Tbe people residing in cities and towns of the state have invested in school houses and grounds $36.17 for each child in scholastic age, while people icsiding in the rural dis tricts have invested in school houses and grounds only $0.05 for each child in scholastic age. livery independent school dis trict in Tjxas, except two, has a school library, while there are 8701 country districts without a library. 6. The children living in the country districts are entitled to just as good educational advant ages as children living in cities and towns. The constitution, as it now stands, is unjust and un democratic, discriminating, with out cause, against the country children. The people living in the country districts are just as honest and worthy of being in trusted with matters pertaining to the education of their own children as the people living in cities and towns. 7. The amend met has been heartily indorsed by: The State Democratic Convention, ''exas Farmers Congress, State Board of Medical Examiners, Texas Press Associationl'exas Feder ation of Women yT""jlutiw, The Texas Lumberine, J sociation, State Teachers' A? ? ion and many.uUierairanjzatv' . . The executive oc l Vv', in be half ot the child ren kas and the welfare of our state, ?sk the voters of Brazos county and the state to vote for this amendment next Tuesday, believing that a new era will dawn inpublicedu cation in our state. .
