STILL REFUSES TO BE QUOTED Naples, Italy, April 2. The steamer Prinz Heinrlch, -with the Roosevelt family aboard, steamed into the harbor at 8:20 this morning. Notwithstanding .the early hour, the water front -was lined -with thousands who wished to share in the -welcome to Mr. Roosevelt. Only officials and'a few newspaper men were admitted to the slip where the vessel docked, but out side the gates a surging mass of excited persons including Hundreds of Ameri cans, craned their necks to get an early glimpse of the distinguished American. Mr. Roosevelt appeared in splendid spirits. He spoke of the pleasure of setting foot upon European soil again and of feeling that he was at last home ward bound. "When he descended the gang-plank and the crowd caught sight of him, he was greeted with cheers. Many Americans had flags and these they waved frantically. Mr. Roosevelt -was soon -whisked away in a motor car to the Excelsior hotel. As the car made its way through the crowds, Mr. Roosevelt raised his hat and, smiling, bowed rigjit and left in acknowledgement of repeated cheers. At the hotel the former president was "beseiged by newspapermen who are in Naples from all parts of Europe. Promptly and firmly he reiterated hi refusal to discuss any phase of Ameri can politics or other affairs, adding that he would stick to his announced policy throughout his European tour. At th hotel Mr. Roosevelt found a messenger from mayor Nathan, of Rome, bearing an invitation from the municipal authorities to a dinner and re ception In his bono. Mr. Roosevelt accepted, fixing the Sate as next Wed neFday. The police took extraordinary precau tions liot only to protect the person, of Mr. Roosevelt but to avoid any unpleas ant Incident during his stay in the city. Thcsoh AtIx., April 2.

ACTIVITY AMONG THE CANDIDATES By W. D. Hornaday. Austin, Tex., April 2. Thfc Demo Ho Tmical situation in Texas at. this time indicates that both the frfends and I enemies of senator J. W. Bailey are pre paring to make him h nl?Lt ; nr,t for the nomination of that ... n vAnwir. The several can-J dldates must stand or fall upon the issue of BaHeyism, as the senator a policy towards corporations is called in this state. When Bailey was re-elected to the United States senate in the face of one of the bitterest fights that was probably ever made against a man In public life in Texas, and afterwards wentbefore he people of his party for vindication at the-primaries in a contest to be named a delegate at large to the National Democratic convention, In which he was successful, it was thought bv some of the party leaders that he would no longer be a contending factor In the politics of the state, at least not until he sought to be returned to the senate for another term, which possible event is somu time off. Bitter Feeling Exists. But the hard things that Bailey said against the men who waged the fight against his reelection to the senate can not be forgotten. The feeling of bitter ness between the two factions is as strong os ever. In fact, instead of his political opponents and enemies being placated or of a forgiving nature, they are showing more hostility towards him and his political proteges than at any time since ithe r.emarkable fight was in augurated. His supporters are as loyal to him as ever, and they have picked up the gauntlet that was thrown down by the anti-Ballev-men of the party in Texas. Another Important" factor that is caus ing a renewal of this .open hostility towards senator Bailey and his faction of. the party in Texas is that they are evldently seeking "ip belittle in every possible way the political influence of j William J: Bryan in Texas, ana 10 am -rr- -r . h rpAvn c STtrtTOfTTrll in eliminating him from the national game. . -?&,. -That MruBailey -Is back of the anti Bryan movement In this state cannot, be questioned.

Mr. Bryan is still strong with the masses of the Democratic party in Texas. This Is a fact that gives no room for argument. In the rural dis tricts, among the men of the "forks of the creek," sometimes known as the wool hat brigade, he is still a political ddol. Mr. Bailey cannot dethrone Mr. Bryan from this position. The signifi cance of (the recent conference that Mr. Johnson and other anti-Bryan men had recently at San Antonio with Roger C. SulHvan of Chicago was not lost upon the people of the state, who are still ardent admirers and loyal supporters of Bryan and his political policies. "While Mr. Bailey was not present at that con ference, he is said to have got a faith ful report of all that transpired there from Mr. Johnson. This anti-Bryan movement is having a direct effect upon the gubernatorial campaign in Texas. It is causing a line up of the 'two factions of the part', and, strago to say, the prohibition question that was expected to bo thp overshad- S owing issue, promises to be lost sight of to a great extent by the masses of those -who will vote in the coming Dem ocratic primaries. . Bailey Gubernatorial Candidates. There are two candidates for the Democratic nomination for governor, who are opoaly bidding for the sup port of the Bailey faction. One is judge William Polndexter, of Cleburne, and tho other O. B. Colquitt, of Terrell. Colquitt is a. member of the state rail road commission. Polndexter began the campaign as an avowed prohibitionist, who advbeated the adoption of a state wide prohibition amendment to the constitution. ' Colquitt started out as the candidate (Continued on Page 3). A Story Of Two El Easb They met in San Jacinto plaza on a cold, bleak day.
