1909 Irrigation convention in session
at Seattle severely criticised
Secretary Ballinger
The Galveston convention called as
a democratic state convention ap
pears to be nothing more nor less
than a Bailey boost association and
the candidate for governor and other
state officers seem to have been lost
in the shuffle completely The Her
aidis not especially surprised at the
action of the friends of the junior
senator but is surprised that the sen
ator would allow such a program to
be carried out in his behalf Such a
proceeding can result in nothing less
than a compact resistance on the part
of those opposed to the senator The
Herald had been assured repeatedly
that Senator Bailey was not an issue
in the present campaign but it de
velops that he is in fact the only
issue It may be accepted as final
that the fight is on in full force
against the senator and the opposition
would be less than natural if they do
not make the most of the challenge
and make the fight of their lives to
unseat him in the election of 1912

ett can be shocked into making such
a statement as the following the sight
must have been one to make all of
the gods weep Col Bill has been in
politics as an observer for the past
half century and knows the game
from start to finish but he confesses
that he has never seen anything quite
so stagey or well staged as the little
show at Galveston Speaking of the
conventions subserviency to Senator
Bailey Col Bill says
In this convention he was in no
particular danger in any way as far
as I can understand The men who
had fought him hardest were absent
with the exception of one or two and
they were disposed to hold their
peace either through indifference or
because they could not solidify the
antiBailey faction or element
So it can be truthfully said that the
triumph was a forced one not one
secured by the aggression of his en
emies Don Quixote when he tilted
at the windmills did as brave a deed
and accomplished as great a triumph
as did the Bailey men when they tilt
ed at the opposition yesterday In the
one case it was against a poor soul
less and perhaps rickety contrivance
to pump water in the other case it
was against an opposition or political
sentiment which had no leaders no
coherence and no vitality
But the Bailey leaders had some
thing to do though their following
hated to give up their soft beds and
the refreshing breezes of the morning
to engage in a battle which in all
things was to be merely a mock one
As it was to be a mock one the lead
ers had to prepare for it in the tab
leau and Mardi Gras way There
were speeches to be made There
was applause to be provided for
There was to be flag waving and all
that at the proper and prescribed
time The leaders as a rule were to
be recognized by immense ribbon
rosettes which they proudly wore on
their breasts rosettes of green and
white ribbon to the weight of nearly
half a pound
I have been to republican conven
tions in Texas when themain matter
was to get the colored vote and the
colored taste for extravagance in
taste was catered to I have seen
bandmasters with gilded batons and
shakos two feet high I have seen
burlesque on ancient and mediaeval
times when the taste in personal
adornment ran riot but I havenever
yet beheld anything quite as appal
ling and withering to the esthetic
spirit as these rosettes which covered
most of the torsos of officers of the
convention who were in most part of
the Bailey leaders Even on the
streets they wore them and in spite
of myself I could not help from an
ticipating at anyy moment the cry we
have so often heard in the country
towns when the circus had begun its
noonday parade Make way gentle
men care for your horses for the
great parade with its mighty ele
phants and beasts of the forests is
on its way Make way gentlemen
and have a care for your domestic an
imals for the most wonderful collec
tion of the beasts of the earth are
with you now
Vote for the parksand help to make
Palestine the city beautiful Vote as
a progressive citizen
Texas democrats through their
platform are on record as saying
Give us our part of the tariff pie
How does it suit you
Despite the fact that the demo
cratic state platform refused to say
so the vast majority of Texas demo
crats are opposed to public officials
accepting employment from public
service corporations The truth will
demonstrate itself in good time
Good people of Palestine there are
entirely too many rank weeds and un
kept premises in this good old town
right now Palestine has a reputation
of being a pretty city and it can only
be maintained through the coopera
tion of ail the people in an effort to
keep eacli yard and the surroundings
clean and in order Nothing adds
more to the appearance of a home
than well kept yards and garden
places Every citizen owesthis much
to the community
Corruption in politics is responsible
for many bad results Just now the
country is shocked over the attempt
ed assassination of Mayor Gaynor h

Whatever delinquencies are show 1

indifference of our own people Thip
may be a blunt statement but Itfi 3
nevertheless a truthful one It Isfii
matter of fact that the majoritySo
the people have not hustled for
greater Palestine as they should Our
greatest indifference has been in the
neglect to make the effort to fill this
county with a good prosperous fann
ing population The people are conv
ing to Texas by the thousands and
Anderson county has thousands fo
idle acres that invite the best clas
of people But we Have been slowjto
offer these lands and advertise thei
merits The one great need of the
time is a colonization scheme throug
which new people can be settle1

numbers Palestine would be a city5c

Board of Trade will be reorganized
pretty soon and instead of ten or tie
teen men being active in its meetings
there should be three or four hunt

line Build up the country and the
