The Herald has been contending
for weeks that the gubernatorial race
would eventually come to the issue
of submission over and above all
other questions and this paper has
contended that under the circum
stance the fight would have to be
made between Cone Johnson and Os
car Colquitt The Herald has not
tried to make this Issue but the very
nature of things has made such a re
sult apparent from the beginning
Johnson Is an outandout prohibi
tionist and draws no line or limita
tions as to how Texas shall be placed
in the dry column while Colquitt is
all the time an anti resisting with his
full force every effort to make the
state dry All of the other candidates
preach half way measures one way
or the other The Herald is not alone
in is conclusion The Waco Times
Herald a close student of political

tendencies sizes up the situation in
the same way and uses the following
argument to sustain its judgment
While not a prophet in the true
sense of the word the fact yet re
mains that months ago the Times
Herald forecasted what is now daily
taking place if indeed it has not al
ready arrived
Submission is the paramount issue
in this campaign modified to some
extent by the Bailey question Such
being the case and the submission
leaders having for the most part given
their allegiance to Mr Johnson it
necessarily follows that the contest
is narrowing down to Johnson and
Colquitt This may be unpalatable to
many men but the wise man will
take off his hat to a palpable fact
every time
We say unpalatable because to be
perfectly plain there are some
grave objections to each of these two
men Especially is Mr Johnson a
bitter pill to the Bailey adherent and
particularly obnoxious Is Mr Colquitt
to the anti who does not like to be
classed as a liquor sympathizer But
so pronounced is the issue becoming
that minor considerations will be ig
nored by the great body of the electo
rate
It goes without saying that some
men are going to put the Bailey ques
tion ahead of the submission issue
Some prohibitionists will vote for
Colquitt and some antiproKlbition
ists will vote for Johnson governed
solely by their attitude toward the
junior senator
It was only natural that the prohi
bitionists who ignore the Bailey ques
tion should fail in behind Johnson
for the reason that Johnson will use
the statutory prohibition club to
force submission at the hands of the
legislatae Tgithtni
eapeople fbr
final defennlnatjonT Both Poindexter
and Davidson failed to see this point
and so eliminated themselves as for
midable candidates from now ou
their candidacy will be an absurdity
Mr Colquitt hecomes the leading
anti candidate because he has the
backing of those who fight prohibi
tion 3G5 days in the year fight it in
precinct and county and state and
nation He makes no concessions
He is opposed to submission He is
opposed to county prohibition He re
jects in toto the idea of government
al interference with personal habits
with what a man shall drink or
what he shall eat or wherewithal he
shall be clothed That suits Colonel
Wolters It pleases Uncle RIenzi it
delights Sir Clarence it enthralls
Old Politician and these gentlemen
recognized leaders of the wets 1
have no time to waste on a submis
slonist like Davidson they are not
cornstalk fighters
As we see it and we have tried to
size up the situation impartially
there is no possible chance for either
Davidson or Poindexter or Cunyus or
Jones to capture the prize circum
stances have eliminated these gentle
men and they owe It to themselves
and to their pledged friends to get out
of the way The contest comes down
to this Johnson and certain submis
sion or Colquitt and no submission
To Lieutenant Governor Davidson

GREENVILLE PALESTINE
St Louis Republic Contains Item
That Indicates the Building
of Such Line
The following item appeared in the
St Louis Republic of last Sunday
under the head Steam and Electric
Railroads Exploited
The Greenville Palestine will be
an extension of the International and
Great Noithern from Palestine north
to Greenville in Hunt count a dis
tance of 130 miles connecting up
with the Texas Midland the Missouri
Kansas Texas and the St Louis
Southwestern
Surveys were made for a line from
Paris to Palestine some two or three
years ago and theie has been talk
since of building such a line but the
I G N s name had not heretofore
been mentioned in that connection
Receiver Freeman said some months
ago that an extension from Palestine
to Dallas would meet his appioval
should the road emerge from its pres
ent trouble and he continue at its
head He thinks such an extension
would prove a valuable one The I
G N already extends to Mineola
and that is on almost a direct line
from Palestine to Greenville so it is
not likely a new line would be con
structed from Palestine to Greenville
by the I G N Rather it would
use the track already to Mineola and
make the extension from Mineola Be
sides the uncertainty that now sur
rounds the I G N under the re
ceivership refutes the reported exten
sion The Herald believes a road
will some day build north from Pal
estine to Greenville or Paris but it
will likely be some other than the
J G N To Teach out in that di
rection the I G N would most
likely begin from Mineola or some
other point further north
