If that is the case we feel absolutely certain that the North Pole has not yet been discovered. λ persistent report has sa ι lu I circulation that Governor Campbell will call the legislature in extra ses i-ion ill Januarj There is always something to cause uneasiness and no matter how hard we try Texas democracy can't digest Campbell. Mr Bryan at Dallas: "I am noi going to discuss whether a platform is binding; 1 wouldn't discuss with a christian whether the ten com mandments were binding." In other words, Mr. Bryan presumed that the platform appealed to a democrat just as the ten commandments appeal to λ christian Are you a democrat? The Houston I'ost says: "We have no patience with the talk that the country needs 'a strong patriotic op position.' What the country needs is a strong, patriotic democratic ma jority and a change in the postoffice administration." Presumably then the Post refuses to enter a plea of guilty to the charge that it is trying to assist in Aldrichizing Texas. If for the sake of argument we ad mit that there may possiblj be ι wo democratic sides to the tariff ques tion, why Is it tliat some who pose as leaders >f one side positively re fuse to listen to argument on the other? Please take notice of the numbers of democrats in Waxahachie who are leaning to the Aldrich Idea who heard (?i Mr. Bryan discuss the old-fashioned democratic side. The following announcement has been given out in Dallas: "United States Senator J \V. Bailey will make a public speech on 'Democracy .«ud the Tariff at the state fair au ditorium beginning at 8 o'clock next Saturday night. Sept IS In thr speech Senator Bailey will answer j the arguments submitted on Sept 14 at Bush Temple by Hon. W .1. Bryan, who defended the doctrine of free raw material. .Senator Bailey will defend the democracy of Texas and the tariff plank of the state platform of 1896, which Mr Bryan demanded should be repudiated by the democracy of Texas." As the champion of a democracy that stands for a protective tariff Senator Bailey will no doubt deliver a great speech, Dut Texas democracy will refuse to be bound by such anti-democratlo doctrine.

Franklin Pierce an eminent New ι York lawyer and author of that ex [cellent economical work, "The Tar iff and the Truste." in a rotent com munication to a New York papers discusses the democratic opportuni ty in a manner that should provoke jearnest thought. He says: "No other party in the history of the world has ever failed to recog nize the existence of issues on which it could triumph as has that party. Not one democratic leader in a hun dred appreciates the popular force which might well he invoked today against the republican party. The Aldrich hill just enacted imposes duties upon four or five thousand separate imports which will amount to about îôuO.TiOO.OOO during the coming year. A great proportion of these articles are practically prohib ited from import because the duties are so high, but these duties, al though they will bring probably about $250.000,ί to $:!00,000.000 into the treasury, allow the manufac turers of the country through com binations to increase their prices over a reasonable price to the ex tent of the duty, and they will ex tract during the year at least a bil lion and a half dollars of the hard earned money of the consumer. Thus 90,000,000 consumers, more than three-fourths of whom depend upon their earnings by manual labor and in clerical work, and all of whom have comparatively little money, are required by the government to pay that billion and a half dollars of enhanced profit to manufacturers to swell their tens of billions of dol lars of wealth accumulated through past tariffs iufamous for their injus tice. Tens of millions of the poor [are required by this law to take s considerable part of their hard earn I inge to unjustly enrich the few I manufacturers. If the leaders of the 'democratic party had brains enough jto ii|·! re -'ate such a situation and : co g? < nough to present it to the people, they would blow tlie repub lican parly so hipli that the laws of gravitation would not act upon it. There is but one end of legisla tion in our day. and that is to care for special inter'sts. The ordinary ' legislator dots not seem to appreci ate any other object. Deputy Coinp t .oiler Kane, for many years in the n'.ice of 'he comptroller of the eur ent y at Washington, recently said: Of the fifty-four acts amendatory οι the original enactment (referring to the national banking ait ) which have been adopted since that date ι Feb 20. |m"I) praeticalh all have 'been in the interest of greater lati tude of privilege to the banks:' and he tells us thai it can be said that none of these acts had for its object the peculiar welfare of the deposi tor ' Mr Ballii çer. secretary of the interior, on the next day after the inauguration of President Taft eom ' menced to restore to public control ι he lands which had been withdrawn by President Roosevelt. Within the month of March alone he restored millions of acres of such lands and continued to restore other millions in April; and no sooner had he cou menced to restore these lands than water companies commenced to take over the water privileges for electri- ι cal purposes. When we come to think about it. it is perfectly remarkable how rap- j idly Senator Bailey's throat has re- ' covered since Mr. Bryan came toi Texas to d' fend democracy against the Aldrich idea.

It is likely that the long reign of Diaz will end with the expiration of his present term, and the neighbor republic is already fired with political enthusiasm at the prospect of selecting a successor to the "perpetual president"—an en thusiasm somewhat, dampened by the recent floods. The principal events in the career of President Diaz may be briefly re cited as follows: 1430, born In Oaxaca of an Indian mother. Educated for the church. 1 S46, enlisted in war against the I'nited States. 1 S Γ. 4, served in revolt tigainst Sa η fa Anna. 1 S5S, supported Juarez in war of reform. IS5!t. General of brigade.

Oct. ·"». when the big circus arrives on ils annual rounds. The Mingling management is in troducing a new elephant act this season. There are fifteen in the act and without question it is the best trained herd of elephants in the world. The speed and accuracy with which they work are one of the most remarkable features of the act. Other trained animal acts are presented by the Schumann educat ed stallions, the Taximeter horses, Kerslake's barnyard actors and Frank Schadel's trick mules. The Schumann horses are the greatest achievement in animal training in the history of the world. Nothing has ever been seen to approach them. Other sensational acts with the circus are the Arthur Saxon trio of modern Samsons, the double somer saulting automobile act and Robli dello's wizard wire dancing. There is not a mediocre act on the long bill. In other words, it is the great est circus that ever toured the coun try. And no pains have been spared in the devising of comedy acts. The program is punctuated with ten thousand laugh-provoking tricks by as funny a bunch of merry clowns as ever frolicked on tin· sawdust. There are fifty comedians in all and there are moments during the performance when the entire arena, rings, stages, race course and all are alive with an army of buffoons wa ging merry war. There is also comedy in the var-| ious trained animal acts, while a large company of burlesque and aer al performers aid the clowns In seeping the audience in a constant -ipple of merriment.

IU HTON WINS WÉUAE l'riemls Let lliin In on Tc*»» l.ajid Heals, Kourtli Fortune i* Near. Topeka, Kas., Sept. 1&.— When .1. R Burton, former I'nited States Senator from Kansas, had served a term in the Iron county, (Mo.) jail for practicing before a federal de partment, ht was released with a fine of $2500 pending. No effort ! was made by the government at that ι time to collect the fine. In fact, it: I could not have been collected he-. Icause of a technical error in the ( I c ammitment papers. Hut this error 1 could have been corrected had the government so desired. Burton was then as poor as the proverbial church mouse. He had j tallied himself Into several fortunes and lost them all. The trial that end ed in his conviction took the last of [ the money he had saved from his [ salary as senator and what he had saved as a lawyer in Kansas. But in the last year Burton has j been accumulating his fourth for- ; tune. Burton had a large number of ■ well to do Kansas friends who knew of his financial condition. Some of these friends took him in on some Texas land deals and according to the best information. Burton stands to profit close to $200,000 within the next year or two through these speculations. During the early summer Burton closer! a land deal that netted him $40,000. He, with a half dozen weal thy Kansans, has purchased the "77" ranch near San Antonio, Tex. This ranch contains 100,000 acres of as rich land as can be found in Texas. It was owned by Col. Ike Pryor, who still retains an interest in the prop erty. The Southern Pacific railroad runs through the ranch and a town site has been laid out along the line. The property cost $1,000,000. Five i thousand acres of producing pecan | trees are now growing on the ranch, j The property is now being cut in-1 to small farms which are being sold ! rapidly. The men who bought the ' .arch expect to double their money j in one year and have more than half | the ranch left. According to friends. Burton will receive the $200,000 and possibly more, for his share of the 'work. Tile government attorneys have j been hearing about these deals and that Burton is becoming wealthy. Officials of the department of justice have been in Topeka and Abilene re I recently investigating the reports. ! From official sources it. is learned ; that an effort is to be made by the ] ovi'inment shortly to secure an or- i ! 1er from tlx- United States courts at St. Louis to collect the $2500 fine' which was η - messed against Burton J and never paid. It is the intention of the govern-; aient officials to ask the court to correct the error in the commitment papers and make it possible to col- j !ect the fine and the costs. While Burton was poor the gov ernment officials thought that the fine never would be collected and it was considered that Burton had been punished enough for his crime.

IHspIaj of Agricultural Products to j Occupy Immense Kuilding. San Antonio, Texas, Sept. 15.— ί h·· people of San Antonio, who do i1 '.:t;t. niv behind this year's inter national fair as never before. Early in ι lie year a large sum of money ,is subscribed to be used in the erection of new buildings and in re modeling and painting old ones which work has proceeded with a large force of men ever since April 1st of this year. A large sum ha» al so been expended in beautifying the grounds under the direction of one of the best landscape gardners in Texas. Realizing the wonderful progress of the state along industrial and agricultural lines the management of this year's fair arranged for the construction of what Is known as "Agricultural Hall" a building two hundred feet square, which building was built for housing exhibits from fields, orchards and truck farms of this state. Already every foot of space has boon spoken for in this building and if more in needed it will be provided, in this building will lie thirty-eight county exhibits and hundreds of community and in dividual exhibits. At the time of holding Ihe International Fair— November lith to 17th inclusive—a largo number of home-seekers and tourists will be in Texas and a splen did opportunity will thus be given these people and others to see just, what Texas soil and climate can do. To many the most Interesting feature of the International Fair will be the exhibit from Mexico which exhibit is mad . by the Mexi can government. The department of fotnento of our sister republic has this year asked for nearly twice the amount of space occupied by them in former years and Mexico will oc cupy one entire side of- Exposition Hall, Besides the federal exhibit a large number of business firms in that country will make independent displays.
