Sheep can bs herded and goats delivered f. o. b. through the chute, but the voters of this country are neither sheep nor goats.—Dallas News. Says the Cleburne Enterprise: "Governor Campbell -said in his speech at Terrell, Texas, speaking on the anti-pass law, that, "The Inter ests" have sought to use this act of the legislature to prejudice the weekly newspapers against my ad ministration, and against the législa ture, and all of its work." Thé gov ernor seems to attribute to the press of Texas, very little capacity to do their own thinking. "The Interests," as he denominates something, has never sought to influence the Enter prise upon any question of public policy. The editor made up his mind a long time ago that the governor failed to "tote fair" with the country press of the state when he let the thirtieth legislaure insert that para graph in it, which prevented them from contracting for advertising to be paid in transportation, The Enter prise believes that this law will eith er be amended or else it will eventu ally be declared unconstitutional. Down in his heart the governor knows that the newspapers of Texas have a grievance, and "The Inter ests" have nothing whatever to do with their criticisms of the governor and the thirtieth legislature. "The Interests" sounds good to tell the farmers, but they are too wise to be fooled tnucb. The papers may all be wrong, but they are sincere." WAGES AND FOOD. According to Bulletin No. 77 of he Bureau of Labor of the depart ment of Commerce and Labor which ias Just been placed In the bande of he printer, an Investigation ot the principal wage working occupations In 4169 establishment* representing the principal manufacturing and me chanical industrie» of tbe country showed that the average wages per hour in 1907 were 3.7 per cent hig er than in 1906, the regular hours of labor per week were 0.4 per cent lower than in 1906, and the number of employee In the establishments In vestigated was 1.0 per cent greater than in 1906. Investigations covering the sales of 1014 dealers in 68 localities show that the retail prices of 30 principal articles of food, weighted according to consumption In representative worklngmen's families, were 4.2 per cent higher in 1907 than in 1906. As the advance in retail prices from 1906 to 1907 was greater than the advance in wages per hour, the pur chasing power of an hour s wages, as measured by food, was slightly less in 1907 than in 1906, the decrease being one-half of 1 per cent. Average hd«rly wages in 190' were higher than in any other year of the eighteen-year period. 1890 to 1907, and more than 20 per cent higher than the average in any year from 1890 to 1900. As compared In each case with the average for the ten-year period, 1890 to 1899, aver age hourly wages in 1907 were 26.8 per cent higher, the number of em ployes in 'the establishments investi gated was 4 4.4 per cent greater, and the average hours of labor per week were 5.0 per cent lower. The average price of food In 1907 was also higher than in any other year of the eighteen-year period 1890 to 1907. The average price of 30 principal articles, weighted accord ing to family consumption of the various articles, was 20.6 per cent Higher in 1907 than the average price for the 10 years from 1890 to 1899. Compared with the average for the same ten-year period, the purchas ng power of an hour's wages in 190 ι was 6.8 per cent greater. The increase in average wages In 1907 over 1906 was quite general, jeeuring in 40 of the 41 industries Overed by the investigation of the Bureau of Labor. The greatest in crease was in the manufacture of cotton poods, where the· average wages per hour in 1907 were 12.9 per cent higher than in 1906. In the manufacture of paper and wood pulp the increase of 10.1 per cent; in 8 other industries the increase was 5 per cent but less than 10 per cent, and in 30 Industries the increase was less than 5 per cent. In one industry Bessemer steel, there was a decrease of wages of 0.9 per cent. In the 41 industries as a whole, weighted ac cording to importance, the increase in wages per hour was 3.7 per cent. Of the 30 articles of food covered by the investigation 29 were higher in price in 1907 than in 1906. The articles which showed the greatest advance in prices are flour 8.9 per cent, butter 8.0 per cent, evaporated apples 7.8 per cent, milk 7.3 per cent, corn meal 6.8 per cent, cheese 6.7 per cent, and potatoes 5.4 per cent. The only article which showed a decrease is tea, the decrease bolng 0.2-per cent. The average prices of 20 of the 30 articles were higher in 1907 than in any other year of the eithteen-year period 1890 to 1907. —Dallas Times Herald. ^ Something Is wrong with a man's liver when he attempts to force a brand of religion down the throats of humanity that offers no benefits until one is dead.

John Ν. Γ ox, county clerk of Hop kins county, writing as to the quali iications of R. R. Williams says: "Il honesty is a disqualification for be ing the governor of Texas, R. R. Wil liams should be defeated1, otherwist he is entitled to the consideration ol the votes of the loyal democrats ol Texas for the high office to which In aspirée. He has been defeated foi office in Hopkins, but many gooi men have been defeated for office. Ht has fought the battles of the demo cratic party, stood for right agalnsl !the wrong, has enforced the law as a 'justice of the peace of Hopkins coun ty when his friends were at interest, has been in the public eye at least for years, and I am surprised that he has not more opposition here. Few, if any men run for office with out opposition, but the statement be ing made over Texas that R. R. Wil liams does not have the support of his home people and Hopkins coun ty Is not true. He will carry Hopkins county by the largest majority of any man that ever ran for governor. I am giving him my support, not sim ply because he is a Hopkins county man. but because he is honest, wor thy and competent to All the office of governor of Texas, and, in my opin ion, If the clerks of Texas support Mr. Williams they will never have cause to regret having done so. Mr. Williams is a close student and is well versed In the statutes of Texas, the constitution and history of Texas, has lived the simple life, knows the wants of the common people and their needs. He has nc'. the money nor the inclination to send speakers broadcast over Texas to speak (n his behalf, but is leaving the result of his race to the people." THΚ NATIONAL PLATFORM. Denounces the Increase in the Num ber of Office Holders. Sulphur Springs, Texas, July 21.— Col. Bob Mllner, our present com missioner of agriculture, who by the grace of the Terrell election law has no opposition, now comes out bold ly favoring the present administra tion and the board of directors at the Agricultural and Mechanical col lege in their late fight against the students and patrons and the friends of the college, thus placing his own position as well as the college square ly In the front in a political fight on the side of the ring politicians. Mr. Milner and his yellow journals de clare the nomination of Mr. Williams might give Texas a republican ad ministration. Of all the nonsensical scare crows that has been hatched out at the political incubator this is the most ridiculous. No one denies Mr. Williams' democracy. No one de nies that his platform is democratic to the core. No one denies his intense honesty, yet we are told by a man and his satellites that if the demo crats dare to nominate one who does not belong to the ring at Austin that the state will go republican. This is an implied threat that the gentleman himself and his journals will go to the republican party. Suppose they did, our majority would be the same as it was when some of these same editors were working in the re publican ranks. Then again, are not the policies of the present adminis tration far more liable to bring about a republican victory than the nomination of any democrat. By ref erence to the acts of the last legisla ture, pages 52, 224, 315, 338, 127, 210, 324, 337, 349, 469, 448 and the game laws more than 300 offices were created, some of which draw salaries directly from the state treasurer and some from the indivin uals interested. About this it makes no difference; it builds up an official oligarchy. Ig this democracy? Read from the last democratic platform at Denver, Colo. It says: "We denounce this great aifd growing increase In 'the number <Jf office holders as not only unnecessary and wasteful, but also as clearly indicating a deliberate purpose on the part of the adminis tration to keep the republican party in power at public expenle and thus increasing the number of its retain ers and ,dependents. Such a proced ure we declare,to be no less danger ous and corrupt than the open pur chase of votes at the polls." Alsc from Senator Culberson's speech Ir the United States senatewhereln h< says: "The government of the Unit ed States is rapidly becoming pater nalistic, the people office ridden. This sounds like democracy, but the acts of the thirtieth leglslaturt sounds like monarchy. C. O. JAMES.

I am a member of that commit tee, I had no notice of this meeting had no notice that I was under an; charges, and consequently had m chance to defend myself. The chair man of this committee and those whom he appointed to do this work acted illegally, violated all the prin ciples of common decency and all precedent in the party rules in order to satisfy their selfish motives. I am charged with disloyalty to the repub lican party because I attended a f meeting where they were organizing a Bryan club. I was there as a specta tor and took no part in the proceed- j ings. The charge is absolutely false. The call made by Mr. O. Beseler is illegal. I made the call as your duly elected chairman and in conformity with the Terrell law. The convention ^ will be held as stated in the opera house at 2 o'clock p. m., July 26th, 1908. I ask all loyal republicans and 1 those who do not believe in such political chicanery is is herein stated, who believe in fair and honest action v by the officers of the party to attend' the convention. We have no slate, we· are working for the upbuilding of the party. With this explanation I leave It with you, feeling satisfied that the motive which prompted the acion of the executive committee will ^ be very apparent, and that it was not on account of my disloyalty at all, but in order that they might reach. their own selfish purposes. Very truly, J. W. FOX, Chairman Precinct No. 1. IT'S YOUR KIDNEYS. Don't Mistake the Cause of Your Troubles. A Waxahaehie Clti Many people never suspect, their I kidneys.

The beet I remedy to use is Doan's Kidney Pills. It cures all ills which are caus ed by weak or diseased kidneys. Waxahachie people testify to per manent cures. j E.
