II mil Democrats May Repudiate Eim After Nomination If He Fails to Follow Plat form. COLQUITT ARGUES IN DIFFERENT WAYS (By Horace H. Shelton.) San Antonio, Tex., June 16. Has O. B. Colquitt been caught in his own net? To the unbiased observer i looks very much that way. If party pledges art not binding on the nominee why should they be bind ing on the rank ana file of the porty? That is the stand taken by the sub mission wing of the party which has started a movement to put out an in dependent candidate for governor in case Mr. Colquitt fis nominated and submission carries and he refuses to carry out the pledges of the party as expressed at the polls and aaoptea in convention assembled. These democrats say tnat tne pieage .tl,v, . nntarinfl' rfVlA TiriTnaV'OS tO support the noaniness is no more bind ing on them than the implied pledge of the various candidates to abide by the result of that primary in every re spect. Mr. Colquitt has already declared that in case submission was carried tha-t he did not expect to abide by the platform of the uemocratic primaries. Now comes the submission -wing of the party and says to Mr. Colquitt that if submission carries and he Is nominated, they will be absolved from their pledqes to support the nominee and will put out an independent can didate. So tii ore you -are. f A Hogg-Clark Campaign. T,fl -rr-tv matters are shaping up. It .Qok ns jf there would be another .. r :n m-cr in noca I jiogg-iariv ca.nipaifeji . o.c.v .. Mr. Colquitt should happen to be nom- j Inated, which Is not conceded by any means. One of the reasons why the antls i would not support submission two years ago was that they claimed it did not get a majority of the votes cast In the primaries and was therefore not binding. There is no chance tor .ur. i,oiqum to be -nominated by a majoritv of all the votes cast in the primaries, if he Is nominated at all, and cannot the fiubmissionists apply the same reason ing and say because he did not re ceive the majority of all the votes cast in the Democratic primaries that he is not in reality the nominee and they need ndt support him. Isn't what is "saso" for the goose Sikewiso an excellent condiment for the gander?" Many Leaders of This View. Let it be understood that this is not the position taken alone by Dr. Ran kin, head of the prohibition party. It is also that of such sterling demo crats and parrv leaders as T. X. .Tones, of T3'ler, T. H. Ball, of Houston, for mer congressman, and others. They maintain tbat any man who would accept the democratic nomina tion for governor and then repudiate the party's platform is n traitor to the partj- and that to support him would e to encourage treason.

"Now, happily, the church at home sees further into the true state of the matter, and the most Important general conclusion which we can draw from the replies made to our inquiries In all j parts of the world Is that thenceforth this view must be entirely abandoned. We have now to think of the church in the mission field not as a by-product of mission work, but as Itself far the most efficient element in the Christian propaganda. The words of Christian people, spoken to their own countrymen In all lands, are the most efficient, as well as the most extensive, preaching of the gospel, and their lives are every where the most conspicuous and con clusive evidence of Its truth. Povterful Element. "In many of the greater mission fields the Christian people are now recogniz ed as a definite community whae so cial life and ideals, as well as their per sonal faith and character, are already becoming a powerful element in the re shaping of national life. They are ev erywhere subjected to a watchful scrutiny on the part of the non-Christian communities, and there seems to be a general acknowledgment that the life thu. jealously watched affords a real vindication of the spiritual power of the religion which they profess. "In short, the church on which we report presents Itself no longer as an Inspiring but distant ideal, nor even as a tender plant or a young child, appeal ing to our compassion and nurturing care. We see It now an actual church in being, strongly rooted, and fruitful In many lands. The child has, In many place", reached, and in others is fast reaching, maturity; and Is now both fitted and willing, perhaps In a few cases too eager, to take upon Itself its full burden of responsibility and serv ice."

The police are now convinced that Porter Charlton, the husband, is alive. They claim to have evidence that he was seen on the evening of the day the body of Mrs. Charlton was found In the lake. That would eliminate the itheory of a double murder and the po lice do not believe that Charlton com mitted suicide.

In these words mayor W. F. P.obin sno declared to the city council at the regular weekly meeting Thursday morning that he favors municipal own ership and believes that the city should have it. Hls communication, which was of considerable length, made these strong points i That El Paso -must have mu nicipal ownership and that It Is the duty of the taxpayers to vote in favor of the issuance of the bonds necessary for the purchase of the present plant. This was the principal business of the session, though several other mat ters were disposed of. Recommenda tions for park improvements -were made by alderman Clayton of the street and grade committee, who objects to piano boxes and other unsightly tool cases being kept in the parks and recom mends the substitution of more attrac tive pavilions. , He further suggested the destruction of the frame bandstand in San Jacinto plaza and the erection of one of con crete with public comfort stations for j women, something much needed In the Tne office of fire marshal was created and the salary fixed at $100 per month, though nobody was appointed.

Although a considerable space of time has expired. I have not yet received a communica tion from the water company or its of ficials answering this communication or stating or suggesting any manner In which the city could properly finance the water plant in the event of its ac quisition.
