March 31.—iSpecial.)— Now that, the Democrats have at least nominated a candidate for governor af ter more than a year of worry and fu tile prophesying, the victorious aspir ant will have the easy task of dispos ing erf the Republican nominee. There is a big ( uestion after the G. O. P. nominee, also altogether it can be more easily removed than has been possi ble for the Democrats. There prom ises to be an interesting contest for the empty honor of being Republi can standard-bearer.

Now he is willing to try again, and has admitted that he is a candidate for the nomination the second time, adopting the Democritlc doctrine that a man is entitled to a second term. But there are party leadeis who will dispute his claim to the nomination. The younger element especially will in the selection of the nominee. —-o IS ACCUSED OF FORGERY Brest Oden of Garland City Is Held at Texarkana.
