It was resolved by the school board
of the Palestine Public Schools in
session last evening to petition the
city commissioners for an early elec
tion at which the citizen taxpayers
will be asked to vote a fifteen cent
increase in the tax levied for the
maintenance of theschools
Fqrjsome years the work of the
schools has been hampered for lack
of funds and the session has been
shortened or a pay term has had to
be provided There is not another
town in Texas the size of Palestine
perhaps that is trying to maintain its
schools on a 25 cent tax levy as is
the case here and the amount of
money received is not enough to car
ry on successfully the work of the
schools Most towns levy 50 cents
for school purposes
In addition to this very scant
amount of money paid by the citizens
for school purposes making it impos
sible to do the effective work that
should be done the city commission
ers have not extended the aid that
should be extended the schools and
which is their duty to extend Their
attitude has been apathetic From
the school fund the school board has
been compelled to pay for insurance
on the buildings pay for all repairs
improvements etc and this has taken
from the school fund that should have
been used for the employment of
teachers etc several hundred dol
lars every year
The schools are of vast importance
to the city and every one should feel
the deepest Interest in them for in
their success and work depend the
future of our girls and boys

sions have cost the patrons dearly A
months tuition in the High School
costs the parents or guardians 4 for
each pupil For the lower grades 2
was assessed for each pupil These
tuitions paid are far more burden
some than the small tax increase
asked In fact the tuition of one
child one month costs more than the
tax would cost the average patron for
a year for he would pay in tax money
only 150 on every 1000 of assessed
values The average patron does not
pay taxes on that amount of property
At any rate it is absolutely neces
sary to have the additional money for
the proper conduct of the schools and
for that reason the school board will
go to the people and ask for it be
lieving that they will vote it
At no time since the present guber
natorial campaign opened has it been
so certain that the race for governor
is between Cone Johnson and Oscar
Colquitt and the man who expects to
help in the selection of the next gov
ernor must out of necessity vote for
one of these two men Reliable re
ports come from North and North
Central and Northwest Texas that the
Davidson forces are going over to
Johnson with a determination to de
feat Colquitt Men who are not blind
ed to the situation are acknowledging
this every day and a great movement
to the Johnson standard is under way
The Herald appeals to the democrats
of Palestine and Anderson county to
think seriously and make up their
minds that they are doing the right
thing under the circumstances The
Herald is convinced that a vote for
Poindexter and Davidson is a vote
thrown away and in the final count Judge Poindexter challenged John
will be but adding to the strength of son by wlre after losing two or three
Colquitt One thing may be put down months time when the opportunity

The Herald gives space today to a
communication from a citizen who
was nearly run down in his buggy by
an auto several days ago The writer
of the letter protests against reckless
driving and his position is correct
The people owning autos should or
ganize and make the first plank of
their platform a discouragement
against reckless driving The only
prejudice existing against the automo
bile today is that created by the man
or men who disregard tne rights of
others on the road Accidents are
possible even when the greatest care
is exercised but every precaution
possible should be used to minimize
the number of accidents And re
member everybody has some rights on
the public highways and these rights
should be observed A man with a
wagon or a buggy should not out of
pure cussedness block the road
against others nor should the man in
an auto appropriate the claim to all
of the road and expect other people to
climb trees to give him the right of
way Just a little common sense and
common decency are of great impor
With a full knowledge of the po
litical situation in Rusk county and
its acute tenseness the News in giv
ing expression to the editorial pub
lished in last weeks issue advising
the prohibitionists if they desired to
elect a governor in sympathy with
their views to concentrate their votes
following the example set by the anti
prohibltionists naming Cone Johnson
as the only possible hope for success
and assigning reasons why Cono
Johnsons candidacy had taken the
lead over that of Judge roindexter
did not expect the l espouse which il
seems has followed the suggeston
This much the real friends of prohi
bition in Rusk county may rest as
sured the suggestions were fairly and
truthfully presented The success of
prohibition comes first with this
paper it has no personal interest in
the success or defeat of either of the
candidates and it would not stoop to
mislead or deceive the friends of pro
hibition With the prohibitionists di
vided between two candidates certain
defeat is an easy and simple propo
sltion As before stated notwlth
i ttLcsaK
standing the extravagant claims from
Poindexter sources the facts are so
clearly evident and come with such
increasing force day after day that the
race has narrowed down between
Colquitt and Johnson and that pro
hibitionists everywhere are concen
trating on Johnson That Judge
Poindexter himself now realizes tho
is true is evidenced by his expres
sions of anger when discussng his
opponents and the fact that his voice
fills with emotion forcing an occa
sional tear to his eye With the as
surance that the prospects for John
sons election over Colqu tt are more
encouraging than they were a week
ago and the chances of his election
are increasing with each day the
News once more urges the prohibi
tionists of Rusk county to lay aside
their personal preferences and con
centrate their votes on Cone Johnson
In thus advising the friends of prohi
bition we know there are selfish and
prejudicial interests that will criticise
and impugn the motive that prompts
these suggestions but we know the
real temper of the real friends of
prohibition in Rusk county too well
to have any fears from such imputa
tions As an advocate of prohibition
the News has earned its right to ad
vise with its friends and were it not
really and truly interested in the suc
cess of the cause from a deep sense
of conviction policy would now dic
tate a grave yard silence Rusk

The Palestine peach shippers are
still getting out car load shipments
several a day The prices seem to
be holding up very well considering
the great crop
T N Jones the Tyler opposition
to Cone Johnson was in Palestine
Monday night but he never said a
word He didnt feel like talking
after the judge had spoken
From reports received no section
of the state will make a finer corn
crop than East Texas And the cotton
is as fine as could be at this time In
fact there has been no kind of a fail
ure in East Texas this year
There are politicians in Texas who
would almost give their right hands
to know what Governor Campbell is
going to recommend to the special
session But the governor is not mak
ing any speeches along this line
did not come until after it had been
announced that Johnson had his ap
pointments all made
The candidates for representative
will address the people of the city
Thursday night A good hearing
should be given them as this is a
most important office and should be
studied with care The army of cqun

The business houses of Tyler will
close Thursday the newspapers of
the town will suspend publication for
the day the farmers will lay aside
their work the laboring people will
get a layoff and a gieat host will go
to Dallas in a special train to hear
Cone Johnson speak at the State Fair
auditorium No other candidate in
the race for governor has such loyal
support from his home people Only
Tom Jones will be left behind x
When Judge Poindexter declared
that he would veto a statutory prohi
bition law without even giving it a
chance to go to the higher courts for
a decision he served notice on the
whiskey organization that all they
had to do was to prevent submission
carrying in the legislature It was a
hope held out to them to get busy and
elect the necessary number of legis
lators to defeat the will of the peo
ple And Davidson is a lifelong anti
and promises the pros nothing And
this leaves the people who really want
