Mr Colquitt candidate for governor
of Texas and who spoke here Satur
day afternoon is easily the most il
logical debater of all of the candi
dates And we shall undertake here
to show why this is so We shall be
perfectly frank with Mr Colquitt and
if we cannot outreason him in the
premises we shall leave the reader to
go with him and accept his position
There are only two propositions or
issues discussed by the gentleman in
hlsjspeech here The first was that

was that statewide prohibition Is
wrong because you cannot make men
good by law That is all of the issue
he discussed What he said about
the Campbell administration was of
no moment as it effects the campaign
for the governorship
Mr Colquitt starts out by glorify
ing the constitution of the state and
after working his audience up to a
feeling that that sacred document is
in danger turns suddenly and ex
claims that he will preserve the con
stitution as long as he has breath to
fight And all of that has absolutely
nothing to do with the present cam
paign The issue of submission has
nothing at present to do with the
constitution Mr Colquitt jumps
clean over the real question and
fights an imaginary evil To make
this clear the present issue in Texas
is a democratic demand that sub
mission be presented to the people
for a vote Mr Colquitt is a candi
date for governor of Texas subject to
the action of the democratic party
only his future in the race for gov
ernor is contingent upon the action of
the democratic party If the party
nominates him he becomes the candi

ton s a
date of the party in the general elec
tion if the party rejects him in the
primary he drops out of the contest
and will not get before the people
of the state as a candidate for gover
nor to be voted on in the general
election As a candidate for gover
nor he places his case absolutely in
the hands of the democratic party
and abides the decision of the party
The same primary that accepts or
rejects him also at the same time ac
cepts or rejects submission If both
Mr Colquitb and submission are in
dorsed by the democratic party of
the state then the candidate of the
party becomes obliged to carry the
banner and demands of his party to
success That is what he is pledged
to do His whole obligation is to the
party thus far and the general elec
torate has nothing to do with the
case As the nominee of the party
he goes before the whole state to be
voted on and if he is chosen by a
majority of all the voters he then be
comes governor of all the people but
still the special leader of the demo
cratic party He is still under obliga
tion to carry out the platform and
policies of his party because through
his party he has been placed in power
The same rule applies to members of
the legislature If the party has de
clared for submission the democratic
agents are still under obligation to
carry out the demand of the party
and they are under obligation to the
state party organization and not to
any special district
And after all of the above has been
settled by the democratic caucus and
action then comes in the constitution
and not before Submission offered
naturally the general election to fol
low is participated in by all of the
qualified voters of the state of what
ever party or of nqaM and their
reasonS HiVexcept he leaves the
party and party obligation out of the
matter entirely This he cannot do
and participate in the democratic cau
cus and accept favors and office from
the party If he Is a democrat he
must abide by the democratic yard
stick There can be no party with
out obligation assumed If Mr Col
quitt was an Independent candidate
and was not running as a party man
he could tell of this argument to get
out But his race is dependent on the
action of the party to which he de
clares allegiance If the party de
clares for submission Mr Colquitt is
pledged by his party for submission
If he will not obey his party he is not
a party man And as to the consti
tution that comes after the party has
fixed its policy and can only be
changed by the superior demand of
the majority of the qualified voters of
tho state
As to his second proposition that
men cannot be made good by law
lets look at that a moment We may
agree with the proposition in the ab
stract but it is equally true and of
much more importance that whether
men are made good or not by law
the arbitrary are made lawabiding
and that answers the same purpose so
far as the good of society Is con
cerned Mr Colquitt had as well tell
us that men cannot be made to quit
gambling by law But we have the
living evidence in Texas today that
the gambling hell has been put out of
business by law The same thing is
true of the pistol carrying law If we
are to rely on the principle that men
cannot be made good by law we had
as well repeal all of our criminal stat
utes and depend again upon men be
coming good of their own volition
And all men know that will not work
Lawabiding men need the law only as
a protection against the unlawful
The San Antonio Express one of
the strongest anti papers in Texas
but fair and reasonable under all cir
cumstances adds this as to Mr Col
quitts platform which it character
izes as sophistry or subterfuge
The legislature cannot adopt a
constitutional amendment nor repeal
one says Mr Colquitt and it is not
at all probable that this assertion will
be disputed by any rival candidate
for the nomination for governor or by
any one else inasmuch as there has
never been any contrary contention
The further assertion of Mr Col
quitt that every man In the state
irrespective of his partisanship Is en
titled to vote in every election intend
ed to bring about changes in the or
participants in the election whlc

If there was no other necessity for

murder the reputation of a man or a
woman than it is to take the physical
life and the law should deal with one
the same as it does with the other It
is bad enough to say the evil of those

The Herald comends the action of
the trustees of the Southwestern Uni
versity at Georgetown for refusing to
sell the university location to the
highest bidder While it is true that
a great school needs money to make
it a success on the other hand such
a deal as the one proposed might do
veather mild with signs of rain the vastly more harm than good In that it
areless jay was placed on ice em might create an Impression In the

might just as well come out of the same box as

Money can be made a force for
great good or evil in proportion as to
how it is employed by its owners
There was a time when knowledge
was power now it is a marketable
brain commodity to be purchased like
cloth by the strings or yard by the
man of means Hence universities
are purchased by communities and in
dividuals on the same principle But
i the genius that dines off herbs In a
I garret is always its own reward and
leaves its mark upon the scroll of the
j ages The trustees of the Georgetown
university acted wisely in bending to
the popular verdict in deciding that
the Georgetown university shall con
tinue to be the Georgetown univer
sity with its atmosphere and tradi
tions unchanged Houston Post
