ers Saturday declared that neither a

Arkansas negroes, according to J.E.
Bush and others, will even go far
as to put out ano:her Republican can
didate for governor—a white man—
but not ono identified with the “lily
white” faction. An offer cf the can

WIN GO WAS HERE MONDAY
Is Confident of a, Wilson Victory This
Fall; Rack from Washington.
Congressman Otis T. Wingo was in
the city a few hours Monday while on
his way to Murfreesboro, and spent
the time visiting among his friends
here. He has recently returned from 1
Washington since the closing session
cf Congress. Mr. "Wingo is confident
of a Wilson victory this fall. He stat
ed that his Republican collegues in
Congress freely admitted a. lack o.
confidence. He says that the Hughe%
campaign has been a frost and a dis
appointment, he having failed to
awake the enthusiasm of members cf
his own party. He stated that a
Hughes’ myth had been built up in
the minds of the public, which was
dissipated when the public came in
contact with the real Hughes. It was
soon found that the idol had feet ol
clay, and was far from the super-ini'
man that had been pictured. The:.,
again, the people of the north and
east knew Wilson and knew what he
stood for, knew he was honest and
that he had courage. They have fail
ed to find what Mr Hughes himsel;
would have done in the many instanc
es in which he had criticised Mr. Wil
Mr. Wingo was glad to find that the
people of this section with fair crops
and good prices were getting some
share in the general prosperity.

ALL GUARDS TO SEE BORDER
Organizations Still Held at Home are
To Move South Soon.
Washington, Sept. 16.—All National
Guard organizations which have been
held at state mobilization camps,
since they were mustered into the
federal service are scheduled to start
for the Mexican border soon. Officials
said today that they probably would
go within two weeks .
Secretary Baker is determined that
the guard of every state undergo bor
der service and training before it is
discharged, and intends to use the
troops in state camps to relieve those
on the border so that the latter may
return home and be mustered out of
the federal service.
lLack of funds available for trans
portation may alter this policy. Al
though no account of the expenditures
incidental to the border situation has
been made public, reports are that the
department practically has exhausted
itd fund. If the guard movement con
tinue it will be necessary to have an
urgent deficiency appropriation bill
put through as soon ns Congress
meets in December.
