For Palestine and vicinity

The Herald is authorized to make
the following announcements subject
to the action of a democratic primary
For State Senator 13th District

1909 M Latham flew 9588 miles at

A great deal is be ng said just now
about a law to protect the smaller
creditors of railroad companies the
men who furnish supplies and render
services or who hold just claims
against such companies and there is
a diversity of opnion about what is
Tight and just and much is said about
the rights of stock and bond holders
and all that The Herald believes in
the square deal and believes that a
corporation worth millions of dollars
should not be allowed to ignore debts
of small amounts made With people
who cannot afford to lose their claims
It seems to this paper that one of the
best ways to prevent such losses
would be to make it a crime in Texas

for a railroad to divert any part of
its funds until its current and local
indebtedness has been paid in full
All people who are familiar with such
matters know that it is a common
practice to take the funds and apply
on interest on overcapitalization or
to apply such funds on other exten
sions etc making it often impossible
to pay the debts from the income
And this should not be permitted A
big corporation should have no legal
right as it certainly has no moral
right to defraud the small man out
of his bill even in order to protect
the bond or mortgage holder
The Herald today publishes the ad
dress of retiring President J C Sil
liman of the Board of Trade and sug
gests that every reader of this paper
g ve the article a close reading be
cause it contains truths and sugges
tions that every man in the town
should know The doctor has stayed
well in the bounds of conservatism
and yet his address makes a splendid
showing for the town It is a fact
that none will dispute that Palestine
is today in the most prosperous con
dition of any time in its history and
t is a further truth that the Board of
Trade is in a large measure respon
sible for this conditon But what
has been accomplished in the past
few years has been done by a com
paratively few men in the Board men
who have unselfishly devoted their
time and thought to the public needs
of the town If it develops in the year
to come that this small number of
workers are to be joined by many
others we may expect big things to
result But whatever you may think
of this suggestion read the address in
this paper and get the good sugges
tions made
Teddy Roosevelt has announced that
he is off on another big hunt This
time he is not after the white rhino
but says in good plain English that
he is going to hunt the crooks out of
his own party This is a hunt worth
while and if the former president suc
ceeds he will have the thanks of the
American people regardless of party
connections There have come up
within recent years a class of poli
ticians who adopt as the r motto get
the money and they have burdened
this country with special privileges
and graft And these are the fellows
the expresident says he is after And
he is joined in this hunt by thousands
of good men and true who do not be
lieve the government should be de
spoiled and the masses exploited for
the benefit of the few Public opinion
will eventually force public officials
to be clean and this same public opin
on will right many other things that
now seem to menace the common
good One of the first things it will
do will be to correct the robber tar
iff And while Roosevelt is hunting
the crook in his party there are other
stiong men looking for the same class
in the democratic ranks The day of
the grafter is numbered
Anderson county should determine
on securing five hundred additional
farmers this year and go after them
The people are coming to Texas
A magnificent rain fell here yester
day afternoon and last night was cool
and delightful It is in order now to
advise that the turnip architect get
busy nith his seed
The members of the Board of Trade
and this should mean every progres
sive man in the town have pledged
themselves to get out and work for
the park propositon Palestine needs
and must have these parks and if the
people do not accept the offers now
they will not have the opportunity
In just a short time now this peo
ple will be called on to vote on the
park bond issue As the Herald sees
it it would be an irreparable mistake
to fail to secure these parks at this
time If the city does not buy the
ijark sites they will be cut up into
residence lots and sold and it will be
hard to find such other locations
Think It over
The Board of Trade was reorganized
last night and a fine Sl > jrt of enthu
siasm was manifest If theijpeople of
this good old townjglllftke hold of
the Board work KSljadfdarn est and
go after business they canlget results
that will be surprising Jfcjd this is
what they should do Ewery man
whether he is in businessfor employed
on salary should have ajji ve mem
