WHEELER. THURSDAY. AUGUST 1. 1907 ACT IN GOOD FAITH! It is said that one or two in fluential citizens who signed the petition to the city council re questing that the election for a bond issue for the purpose of build ing water-wcrks and a electric light system are now opposing the -Jiond issue. This would scarcely appear reasonable or consistent on the part of the said citizens and The Heraxd doubts whether they are quoted correctly. They surely would not be so foolish as to attach their names to such a petition and then work against the very thing they asked for, especially after putting the city to the expense of iolding the election. The fact is, that there were several who signed the petition who actually prefer private to city ownership of public iatilities, but they realized that it was of paramount importance that the town should be provided with water and light as quickly as pos sible, and, seeing that we had waited on private franchises in vain for four years, they were willing to sacrifice their personal preferences for the sake of obtain ing these utilities without further delay. That these men will stand hy their petition to the council is Iiardly to be doubted. U It surely would not look like acting in good faith for any of the signers of the petition to be going about now talking against munici pal ownership, since they them selves have asked, for it, and it is Co be hoped that none of them will stultify themselves by so doing. "HOW ABOUT 7mS?" "It is with apologies that The "Herald devotes so much of its space today to the publication of the report of the outrageous lies of the negro lawyers who came here some weeks ago ostensibly to in vestigate the raid upon Browns ville, which was committed by ne gro . soldiers of the 25th Infantry last August, whose statement is published in full in this evening's Herald, as it appeared in the "2Tew York Times and Cincinnati "Enquirer of July 27. This clipping l A . TTK. 1 TTT was sent w tui uukaiu oy vv. 3?. Paine of Madison, Ind., with a "fetter saying: "How about this? I don't believe a word of this, but Jots of people will.'' It is the fact that people of standing, such as Hr..Paineasksuch a question, and papers of such standing as the Times and Enquirer, and also the Chicago Tribune, which published almost the same tale on the same date, and which was doubtless published by scores of other reput able papers, have seen fit to give spnee - such a vicious attack upon Browu ville, that The Herald feels that it should pay some at- really seems absurd that reputable papers could be induced to publish such sensational rot, or that reasonable people could even waste time reading it, much less giving it credence, yet such a thing has occurred, and Brownsville is again put on the defensive in the. case. la view ' of the wide circulation that has been given to these slan ders" against' the town, it would seem incumbent upon our citizens to take some active steps to set themselves right before the coun try. Denials seem to have no effect, as these have been published reneatedlv. and even the odsitive r , - , evidence oi the citizens of Browns ville rendered before the senate committee seems to be insufficient to prove to the northern press that our people havebeen first outraged by the very men who were sworn to protect American citizens and then insulted by being accused of the heinous crime of which they weie the victims. It would seem that the only step left to our peo ple is to urge the senate com mittee not to complete their report upon the case without first coming to Brownsville in person and mak ing further investigations. They could not come here without being convinced of the guilt of the sol diers and the innocence of the citi zens. The Herai,d knows that our people are unanimous in wish ing that the committee should come here. Indeed an invitation was sent the committee by the mass meeting held here some months ago, asking that the committee do so. So far. howewer, no answer to that invitation has been re ceived, and The Herald believes that it should be repeated in more emphatic terms, urging that the committee come here, in behalf of justice, and investigate the case. An "R. S. V. P." postscript might be of some effect, in securing some intimation as to whether or not the committee will come. Under such a shrewd and powerful leader as Senator JForaker, it is not impos sible that the enemies of Browns ville may yet succeed in convinc ing the people of the North and even the senate commmittee itself that what these defamers says of the town is true. An official denial of the charges made by the negro lawyers is be ing prepared and will be published as soon as completed.

Brownsville People Have Learned This Fact- - When a healthy man or woman begins to run down without ap parent cause, becomes weak, lan guid, depressed, suffers backache, headache, dizzy spells and urinary disorders, look to the kidneys for the cause of it all. Keep the kid neys well and they will keep you well. Doan's Kidney Pills cure sick kidneys and keep them well. J. P. Anderson, carpenter, liv ing in the southern part of Corpus Christi, Texas, says: "My Kidneys have given me more or less trouble for the past two years. A sharp twinge of pain at times, darting through my back, loins and the secretions were too frequent and caused much annoy ance, especially in the winter. My son saw Doan's Kidney Pills ad vertised and brought home a box. I used them and obtained great benefit. The action of the kidneys was corrected and my back has given me no trouble since. I can recommend Doan's' Kidney Piils with pleasure." -Plenty more proof like this from Brownsville .people. Call at J. L. Putegnat and Bro.'s drug store and ask what customers report.
