Justice of denying it aald Mayor Hop-

Miles before the state militia waa called

askea If he Intended doing his duty
and would call the state militia Ac-
cording to this report the mayor an-
swered that he should not mix up In

utes In which to Issue Instructions to

fused to obey he would declare the city

Jeclure The managers of the Interests
of the respective candidate continue to
keep up soihe activity at their head-
quarters and to flcura for fVtie
results to their respective champlons
but tho returns Are far from aatUfac
tory to anj of them The primaries
have failed to stack up a major tv for
cither candidate and what it still more
perplexing they have not developed
that sort of enthusiasm und unani
inlty that vve are accustomed to sou
tn Texas campaigns aa polntcia to

will et pull up to a majority for tho
Biiuiu cpviung count but thia la chim-
erical und scarce ti amounta to a ci edi-
ble campaign Joke it is just almply
Impossible for nny one of tho can-
didates to go lu with a majority or
anything approximating audi a vote
barring death wttldrawal and other
like casimlltle The foremost man la
not likely to reach within n hundred
votes of the coveted majority on the
first second or third test of strength
and they do say that to be in the
lead and et so far ahort of the whi-
ning vote Is not according to prece-
dent the most dcalrablo position to
occupy und It Is on this tluory that
Mr MoCall s friends nro quietly cod-
dling -- poBslbllltlea of the upheaval
when the Instructed piny la exhausted
nnd the delegates feel at liberty to iorm
new atllances
Mr Itouffuna managers nnd friends
generally are by no means discouraged
that he is not tho leading candidate
lhev are quite confident that hts name
rill be before tho convention on the
last ballot and that the winner will
have causa to reaped the running qual-
ities of hit final com pot I tor
But whether Mr Ucagun be nomin-

Whether this la due tu Mr ltcugano

admlnlsratlon Texas Is very much In-
clined to Mve him tho credit for jl
Nor Is it doubted that the convention
will emphasize the victory for allvpr

meed of praise for si boldly combat-
ing and tta successfully overthrowing
the pernicious policy of demonetisa
tion of one moiety of the world s metal

The convention will alro remember
that lie threw hlmsilf In tho Imminent

IGOOO a ear nnd the other with u for-

In Texas
It Is n foregdtie conclusion that Mr

of the other three candidates as well
will bo crystullzfHl In the state pint
