The caucus for nominating candidates for mayor and
councilmen, who will have the control of Welsh for the
next two'years, will be held at the City Hall tonight.
Considerable interest is already being manifested in
the matter and the caucus tonight promises to be full of
interest to all. There are at least two slates lined up
that will be presented to the caucus for their approval
or rejection.
The selection of these candidates is a matter of the
most vital interest to every voter and property owner in
Welsh,. and every one, who is qualified to vote, should
see to it that he is there to cast his vote for the candidate
of his choice.
The men who are chosen, are the men who will de
termine what progress our city shall make during the
next two years, in moral and material development.
They will determine the financial policies of the city for
that period. In their hands will rest, to a large degree,
the progress that our schools shall make. In fact, upon
the coming city administration rests the responsibility
of whether Welsh shall continue making the progress
she has been making during the past few years, or shall
drop from the enviable position that she now holds, to
that of a dead one, such as all will be ashamed of.
Friendships and "good fellowship" should not enter
into the matter of selecting candidates for these import
ant trusts, but only such men should be selected as have
demonstrated by their business acumen and integrity,
that they are worthy the confidence of the people.
Don't depend upon your neighbor to shoulder this
responsibility for you, but attend the caucus and, do your
part. J
Wind Destroys Many Derricks in the
Jennings Oil Field.
The high wind of Monday night,
proved very disasterous to the Jen
nings oil field, causing a lobs of many
thousands of dollars. It is reported
that between 100 and 150 derricks were
blown down, as well as a number of
buildings. The storm confined itself
chiefly to the central part of .the field
and that portion occupied by the Pro
ducers Oil company and the Gulf re
finery. Several persons were slight
lv injured by flying gerbis, but none
are thought to have been fatally hurt.
The following named gen
tlemen have consented to
submit their names to the
caucus to be held Friday ev
ening, April 16, for the pur
pose of selecting candidates
for the offices of Mayor and
City Councilmen:
For Mayor, A. T. JonEs.

Irs. Scharif Passed Away.
Friends of Mr. Eduard Scharfl, in
this city, were greatly shocked at re
ceiving word from him a few days
since, that his wife had been called to
the great beyond on the 5th inst. The
deceased had long been a safferer
from bronchial troubles and finally
succumbed to the dread tuberculosis.
Mrs. Scharff was well known to
practically everyone in this section of
country, having resided here/with her
husband for many years. During
recent years she had, spent much of
her time in El Paso, Texas and other
western points on account of her
health, but always considered Welsh
her home until a few months ago
when Mr. Scharff sold his plantations
here and went west in order to have
the famiv united.
The maby friends mourn her de
parture as the passing of a noble
woman and a sincere friend. Inter
ment was made in Galveston. De
ceased leaves a husband and one son,
Lynton, to mourn their loss, and to
whom their many frienes in Welsh
extend sympathy and condolance.

Young Men and
Young Women Wanted.
The demand is greater than the
supply, and a large number of young
men and women are wanted at once to
complete courses of bookkeeping and
shorthand or telegraphy in the Tyler
Commerolal College of Tyler, Texas.
During the past two weeks we have re.
oelved far more calls for our tradu.
ates than we could supply. We have
not uw, and have not had for some
time, a single graduate of bookkeep
ing and shorthand out of a position,
whose applioation is on our employ
ment bureau file. This fact should be
quite encouraging to the young peo.
ple who'hsave been hesitating to spend
time and money for a business edu.
cation, fearing that they could not
secure employment when their courses
were finished. We can assure ev.
eryone, who takes our course of book.
keeping and shorthand or telegraphy
that they will be placed promptly, up
on the completion of their course.
We can also assure them that they
will be placed in a rood post ion
whlch will be highly satisfactory to
them. Business firms and railroads
are beg)nning to realize the thorough
practical training given the graduates
of the Tyler Commercial College, and
durlng the past two weeks, Arms from
Ft. Worth, Waco, Dallas and other
cities have asked us to furnish them
with competent bookkeepers knd ste
nographers, and we had no graduates
to recommend, notwithstandingr the
fact that we have an annual enroll.
