with Ao reporter present, is merely
launched upon the atmospheric sea to
be blown hither and yon at the heck
of the winds.) But, zounds! What
one says in congress is printed in
legible eight-point type. in the Con-
gressional Record. And if one says
in congress something which other
congressmen think improper to be re-
produced in the Record, he has an
awful lot of explaining to do.—Gal-
Yes, it’s different. And speaking of
newspaper men and would-be news-
paper men, we have seen these all*.
J sufficient fellows jump into the news-
paper game, and write themselves
down and out before they got good
started. We have seen them buck the
game with such lack of balance—run-
ning without a governor, as it were—
that soon a yellow cur-dog would not
notice them. And all because what
they said went down in cold type. Yes,
it is quite a different thing to stump-
speak and write editorials, or have
your utterances go down in cold type
in the Congressional Record. And the
man who can run a newspaper con-
tinuously and maintain his pl^ce in
"the community as a smart or wise man
is smart and wise, indeed. Most
newspaper men who succeed at the
game learn this sort of wisdom, else
they would not be in the game.

BEGGING TJ4E QUESTION.
YES. ITS DIFFERENT.
Many of us who did not vote for Cy-
clone Davis are inclined to sympa-
thize with him in his defeat. That the
man means well, that he is a sober,
zealous, industrious congressman, is
■not to be doubted. He owed his first
election to a certain quality of pic-
turesqueness which appealed to many
tastes, and he owes his defeat for re-
election to a certain quality of
thoughtlessness emphasized by a too
vigorous self-sufficiency. Cyclone Da-
vis has sadly needed an editor. One
who speaks-as often as he needs a
censor to sit in the background and
eliminate the frenzied cfrafory and the
effervescent flubdub. Judge Davis is
a famous stump wpeaker, but he had
•o little experieimV in office that he
forgot\that stui$A speaking in the
le play, in
Mr. Colquitt's latest plea is that citi-
zens of Texas should not be influenc-
ed by the fact that the Wilson admin-
istration is opposed to him.* “What
right have the president and his cab-
inet to dictate to the people of Texas
who shall represent them in the Unit-
ed States senate?” he exclaims.
Which is only Mr. Colquitt’s adroit
manher of begging the question.
Whether the administration is opposed
to Mr. Colquitt ot not is of little im-
portance.* What is of importance and’
quite a different matter, is that Mr.
Colquitt’ is absolutely opposed to the
administration. Its importance con-
I sists not so much in any injury which
this opposition in jtself could do the^
president, as the injur* which already
has been done to him by the interpre-
tation whicli the republican campaign
managers are giving Mr. Colquitt’s
candidacy. This situation was preeip- 1
itated by Mr. Colquitt himself and he
has no reason for complaint if the
democrats of Texas undo the injury so
far as possible by defeating him for
the United States senate by an over-
As to the administration’s attitude [
to Mr. Colquitt’s candidacy, a special
dispatch from Washington, sent about
the same time Mr. Colquitt was mak-
ing his complaint, declares that any
reports that Washington will take a
hand in the senatorial race is false.
“It was declared that neither the pres-
ident nor any White House official
would take any dish in the campaign,”
says the dispatch, "or attempt to sug-
gest to the democrats of Texas whom

This answers Mr. Colquitt’s conten-
tion absolutely. However, it does not
change the circumstance, a circum-
stance for which Mr. Coiquitt himself
is responsible, that his election to the
United States senate would be in-
terpreted throughout the country as
a rebuke by the Texas democracy to
; While on the subject of Mr. Col-
quitt, attention should he directed to
a lack of consistency • between his
views today on the matter of second
primaries and nominations by majori-
ty vote and those, he held in 1906.
Then he advocated the • nomination of
the governor by majority vote and
the holding of a second primary if
necessary. At the convention which
nominated Campbell for governor the
first time, Mr. Colquitt, who had been
one of the candidates against him,
made an address from _ which the -fol-
lowing is an extract as printed in the
daily press at the time:
“I have said that I advocated a
law which would have required the
submission of the names of Thomas
M. Campbell and Micajah M. Brooks
to a second democratic primary in this
state. (Cheers). I stand for that to-
day, fellow citizens, even though ’it
encompasses my aspirations and car-
ries me down in defeat. (Applause).
I want no public station over the pro-
tests of an overwhelming expression
of the people/’. S'
This language is unmistakable. But
now Mr. Colquitt, who failed to veto
the senatorial primary bill which pro-
vides for the nomination of senators
by majority vote, is Inaking the weak
plea that he should not be put to the ^
trouble of running against Senator

spite of the fact that two-thirds of the
voters taking part voted against him.
It would seem now that he dodar^nt

whelming expression of the people.”
