CUTTING- A FIGUBE IN STATE RACE Prohibition Is the Big Issue. May Narrow Fight to Col quitt and Johnson. (By W. D. Hornadny.) Austin. Tex., July 9. To what extent are the officers and paid agitators and represents ies of the anti-prohibition organization of Texas responsible for the state -wide prohibition movement? This is a question that the thinking and more conservative saloon and anti-pro-hibitiou element of the Democratic parts, are beginning to ask. A careful and unbiased analysis of the situation -would certainly cause the answer to be made that but for the unceasing activ ities of the men in the pay of the or ganization to keep the anti-prohibition question alive in this state during the last few years, it -would not now be an issue in the campaign for governor. It is a fact too well known and sus ceptible of positive proof to be given even an attempted denial that there has not been a legislature for the last 10 vears that has not contained as Its I members, in both the house and senate, paid lobbyists of the liquor Interests. It is hardly conceivable that the H Qtor men themselves were responsible fortfie crude methods "which these hired Agents adopted to protect -the Interests which they were sent to the legislature to represent. Instead of accepting and endorsing proposed measures that had for their object the proper regulating of the liquor traffic they employed ev- , fry kind of tactic within their power so block and defeat such legislation. Had these legislative representatives of the saloon interests not fought and de feated some of the measures that were advocated by men who wanted to see the saloon business placed upon a high er plane, the agitation for state "wide prohibition and the annihilation of sa loons would never have reached the Importance of a campaign Issue, at leas not for manv years. There are many thousand prohibit! on I st in Texas today, bow alligned on the side of state wide prohibition, who would have ac cepted the proper regulation of the sa loons by legislative enactment without a murmer. , Bring Rnln to Employers. It is clear to the close observer that the paid agents of the anti-prohibition organization are bringing ruin to the verr people whom they are supposed to represent. Most of these hired men are professional politicians. Some of them nave personal axes to grind. All of them feel that it is their duty to kep In fie lime light as much as possible so that they may have the appearance of earning their salaries- It Is directlv due to those men that the prohibition Question Is now an issue of domestic politics of Texas. It Is monev in their pocket to keep it there. If O. B. Col quitt can be elected governor It will niean that the state wide prohibition question Is still unsettled. It will mean a renewal of tie terms of employment of these paid agents of the anti-prohibition organization. The talk that the ( Continued on Next Page.)

Did You See Mutt and Jeff? Th HARD FIGHTS FOR THE ( By Horace San Antonio, Tex., July 9. In the ex citement over the race for governor and lieutenant governor the citizens of Tex as seem about to forget that there are other important officers to elect and that there is a wide field for selection. The most interesting of these are the contests for state controller, railroad commissioner, commissioner of the gen eral land office, state treasurer, and judge of the court of criminal appeals. A systematic fight is being made against the reelection of Allison May field as railroad commissioner. He is opposed by L. T. Dasheill, of Leon county, state tax commissioner; J. W. Blake, of Hill county, former chair man of the state Democratic executive committee and at one time prominently mentioned as a candidate for governor, and Theodore G. Thomas, of Harris county, editor of a truck journal. The principal argument of the op ponents of Mnyfield against his reten tion in office is the doctrine of rota tion in office. He has been a member of the railroad commission for 14 years, and it Is claimed by those opposed to him that it is time that he was .weaned away. Mavfield, while a candidate for re election, is sticking to his post of duty and doing no campaigning. In the meantime Dashiell, aVone time speaker of the house of representatives and a close political friend of governor Campbell, is making a campaign of the state while he is drawing a salary ns a state officer by virtue of Campbell's appointment. By the appointment of William D. Williams to succeed the late commis sioner Storey and ttho will be elected without opposition, governor Campbell got one man on that body. Should Dahlell be elected he would control. That would immediatelv mean a move ment for 2 cent fares on passentrer trains and othr radical movements which are pet hobbles of governor Campbell. It is generally conceded that the race lies between Dashiell and Mayfleld. lit- . tie progress being made by Blake or Thomas. Fight on for Controller, The contest for controller is the free for all race of the campaign with five entries as follows: W. P. Lane, of Tar rant county; D. C. Burkes, of Bell coun ty; B. F. Teague, of Washington county; Ed-swn Waller, of Waller county, and Bob Barker, of Bexar county. Barker is the must widely known of the candidates on account of his race against Stephens, the present controller, j four vear,s ago. At that time he wa's 1 oniy oearen Dy a small vote. yarKer is running on a platform which pledges ! himself to clean out the present set of cierKs in the controllers office, who. i ne claims arc meiricient and too per- uiuiuitaij- acne m poinics. sancerj aiso favors adopting modern systems of j bookkeeping. j x. r. jeague. oi v asnington countv. is now chief clerk under the controller and is runlng on the platform that his vears of service In the controller's of fice has made him thoroughly familiar with the duties.

"The concern will maintain a New York resident buyer throughout the 3-ear, who will constantly keep in touch with the styles as fast as they are created in the world's fashion cen ters. "The company will have a large and thoroughly equipped work room where we will employ competent milliners and designers."

He has been a clerk in the controller'. office' until recent ly. He comes of the Waller family, fa mous in early Texas history, and all of his campaign literature calls attention to the valiant service rendered to the state by his ancestors. Another claim to election is that all the time he was a clerk in the controller's office he took affidavits to pensions by Confederate soldiers mdthout charge, although in his capacity as notary public he had a right to make such a charge. The indications seem to be that the rare lies between Barker and Teague, with the southwest Texas man a little In the lead. The Judgeship Contest. A. J. Harper, of Limestone counts: Felix J. McCord, of Smith county, and P. A. Turner, of Bowie, all are candi date"; for associate Just'ce of the conrt of criminal appeals. This is the place formerly held by judge M. M. Brooks, of Dallas. On his resignation judge McCord was appointed to the vacancy ) by Gov. Campbell and Is now a can didate to succeed himself. It is prob able that the opposition to Campbell will concentrate in an effort to beat McCord. It is also understood that his election is generally opposed by the li quor and brewery interests. I.rxisl Office. For land commissioner J. T. "Robinson is a candidate for reelection and is op posed by Charle" W. Geers, of Tarrant county, and H. Ellis Hill, of Harrison county. Robinson is a candidate for reelection on his record and is laying especial stress on the efforts he had made to recover for the state school funds thousands of acres of and in west Texas which he claims was se cured by false entry. Jinny Indictment Returned. Assisted by J. J. Terrell, of Austin, former land commissioner and a special employ now of the attorney general's department, a vigorous fight to recover this land has been waged. Some of the J uiu pruimneiiL cull euien ul muiii Texas have been indicted for false swear-I Ing and a large amount of the land has been returned to the state.
