The Governor and Senator Bailey
Banqueted—Dallas Fair Opens
The Sunday's Dallas News gives
an acoount of the opening feature of
the Texas State Fair on last Sunday.
The beginning sentence t«U* about
the "Two-Dollar per Plate" dinner
that wíis spread in honor of the Gov-
ernor on Sunday night, which may
be fully appreciated by giving the
exact text. The News says:
With about 300 men, fifty of them
from out of town, and 250 residents
of Dallas, just a half a dozen speak-
ers on the toast list and a menu done
partly in English and French, the
Citizens of Dallas gave a banquet at
the Oriental Hotel last night in hon-
or of Hon. Thomas Mitchell Camp-
bell, the Governor of Texas.
It was the inauguration of what
probably will prove an annual fea-
ture hereafter to take place coincid-
entally with the opening of the State
Fair, displacing the legislative ban
quet which had come to be a regular
feature, but which has passed away
with the passing of railroad passes.
The banquet to the Governor was
a $2 per plate affair, which is just
twice what the famous dinner given
to Mr. Bryan at the Fair Grounds a
decade ago cost. The increased
price for the spread last night may
have been due in part to the "in-
crease prosperity of the country and
the higher cost of living," but it
evidently was due also to the elabor-
ation of the viands and drinks.
Whereas, at the "dollar dinner" in
honor of Mr. Bryan and other illus-
trious Democrats, "water flowed
like wine," last night the "wine
flowed like water." To be exact, the
very first thing on the menu card and
the table as well, was a Manhattan
cocktail, or, as some folks call it, "a
Fairbanks cocktail," a cocktail with
a red cherry in it.
Later on there was champagne (G.
H. Mumm, extra dry), also all

The banquet started late. It was
9 :50 o'clock before the doors of the
hall opened and after 10 before the
guests were seated. In the mean-
time the crowd milled around the
lobby of the hotel shaking hands*
and gassing. Most everybody had
read or heard of H. Clay Pierce's
open letter to Gov. Campbell and
this set the tongues wagging afresh
in speculation as to whether or not
the issue of "Baileyism" or "anti-
Bailey ism" would be injected into
Along about 9 o'clock the rumor
strayed along that the word had been
passed out for anti-Bailey men not
attend, because it was said so the
rumor had it that the banquet was to
be a "Bailey affair in disguise."
Seemingly however, there was little
or no foundation for the rumor, for
there were many anti-Bailey men on
hand—pronounced ones like Cullen
F. Thomas of Waco and "Farmer"
Shaw, and when the party was seated
at the banquet board there were no
BURY POLITICAL ANIMOSITIES.
It was 11 o'clock when Toastmas-
ter Beall rapped for order, announ-
ced that the exercises would close at
12 o'clock and declared that political
animosities would be laid aside.
This was after some people had just
cheered for Bailey. Later in his
speech, when Beall, in naming the
Governors of Texas who had opened
the State Fair at Dallas, there was
great cheering when he mentioned
the name of Culberson, and renewed
great cheering when he presented
Gov. Campbell to respond to the
first toast, "The Democratic Plat-
form and the Thirteenth Legisla-
The next speaker after the Gover.
nor was Senator Bailey. He was
greeted with cheers and made a tell-
ing address, according to the News.
The next toaster was to be Senator
Culberson, but he declined to speak
because it was on Sunday. The
feast closed at 12 minutes past 12,
after the clock had been turned back

On next Sunday morning and even-
ing there will be special services in
the interest of the Woman's Home
Missionary Society. They will have
entire charge of the night service,
which will be interspersed with spec-

Leaves for Corpus.
Mr. T. J. Graves and family left
Hereford Wednesday afternoon for
Corpus Christi where they will spend
the winter. This move was necessi-
tated by the ill health of both him-
self and Ethel. We certainly hate
to lose such an estimable family and
one who has been such a help to our
town, and especially as Mr. Graves
and the rest like to live here so well.
We hope that the Southern climate
will prove such a help to them that
they will come back with the spring
and make their home with us again.
