Hon. J. 'N. Garner, Tiie Herald is authorized to announce a Candidate for Congress xrom as tins the Fifteenth District, subject to Hie Democratic dominating convention TUESDAY, JULY 15, 1902. Irrigation's the thing. The state democratic convent ioi was opaned at Galveston today. AH THERE, Br'er Henderson Getting ready to give us the shake Better look twice before you jump The Corpus Christi republican: sre sitting up with John C. Scott'; congressional boom. J. S. Hender son is its wet nurse. Mc Laurin is still nursing tha appointment to the bench, but i slill remains to be seen whether Roosevelt will so reward such a renegade and traitor to his party The Herald has sufficient faith in the president's honesty and in his reverence for the purity of Amei ican institutions to prevent its believing him capable of giviug an important bench appointment to the man who would sell his vote It cannot believe that he will pros titute the power he has to the ha senessof polluting the judiciary in such a way. The n9w army uuiform is to be green. Why that color was adopt ed, it is uot easy to see. About the ugliest thing one can imagine is faded green, and it is usually a color which fades fast. Gray, or "cadet blue," would seem to be a much better color. The com mendable qualities which gray possesses for an army uuiform have been acknowledged ever since the Confederacy made it famous on hundreds of battlefields. Germany has just adopted gray for its army uniform, which is proof that it is a good color for the purpose. When a man finds it absolutely impossible to reconcile his con science to policies which the party of which he is an adherent may adopt, one cannot blame him for refusing to support the party. But when such a man flops to the op position party and seeks or accepts office under its patronage, he lays himself liable to the suspicion that his change of heart was not on ac count of conscience, but on account of a desire for self-gain. He is then a traitor, a turncoat, who is in politics for revenue only, and he deserves the contempt of all honest men. The least a mau can do when refusing to support his party, is to remain quiet. If, on the contrary, he knifes the party, then he becomes an object of hatred and loathing to his former political brethren, and eveu the members of the party to which he turns, though they may weleo me whatever strength he adds to their cause, must secretly despise him. lie would better follow Judas I?cariot's example in toto. The rope's end and the potter's field make a fit finale to such a career. The National Educational As sociation, which met at Minneapo lis, Minnesota, last week, adopted a resolution urging congress to organize a natioual department of education to take equal rank with the other departments of the government. The idea is a most reasonable and sensible one. The i education of the children of the nation is of the mpst vital impor tancej and one with which the government may well concern itself. We have an agricultural department, which is seeking in ever y way to advance the great farming interests of the couutry, and none can deny that the training of the future men and women of the country should receive as much consideration from the government 'as the industrial interests of the country. Along this same Hue, if congress should take up the matter of the gov ernment'? relations with the educational system of the nation, it might be also a good idea to establish a natioual normal college, where students should receive the same treatment and advantiiges as are accorded the students at West Point and Aninipnlis. 'Hie future officers nf our army and navy are carefully trained and educated for their work, and are paid a salary while getting such education. This is quite rignt. it won in oe also quite right that theyoing men and women who aspire to become the educators of the nation should have similar advantages. The establishment of such an institu tion and the organization of an educational department at Wash ington would tend to elevate the profession of teaching and would certainly advance the educational interests of the entire country.
