WHAT OUTSIDERS THINK
OF BAILEY SITUATION
Action -of Some Texans in
Harassing Brilliant Dem=
ocrat Injures Party.
'Illinois democrats are sympa-
thizing1 deeply with United States
Senator J. W. Bailey in his pres-
ent trouble," said E. E. Smith,
president of the R. P. Smith
Shoe Manufacturing company of
Chicago, who with his wife is
stopping at the Hot Wells hotel.
"Our view of the matter is
simply this: Senator Bailey has
been re-elected for six years and
should be let alone. We admire
the man, and I for one believe he
is not properly .appreciated in
Texas. I note that his big
speeches in congress always
attract more comment from
Northern and Eastern papers
than those in his native state. I
would also make the further
prediction that Texans are going
to get themselves in bad with the
rest of the party if they continue
to harass the junior senator in
the event of his election as a del-
egate at large to the national
convention at Denver. I say this
as a democrat, and with the be-
lief that I have a right to voice
anywhere my opinions with ref-
erence to the actions of any man
or set of men within my own
"Illinois is going to send fifty-
four delegates to the National
democratic convention this year.
All of them will go instructed
for Bryan for president. Per-
sonally I favor the nomination of
Judge Gray of Deleware. I ex-
pect to attend the big- convention
and éhall contribute my mite and
influence to secure the nomina-
tion of the Deleware jurist. I
believe him to be the biggest
man in the democratic party to-
day. Parenthetically, I would
remark that your own Senator
Bailey stands second in the col-
umns of democratic intellectual
giants. No, the democratic par-
ty did not sour on 'judges' be-
cause of the ignominious failure
of Judge Parker of New York.
Up our way we realized that he
was something of a hoax from
the start. Judge Gray repre-
sents all that is desired by the
greatest party of the continent
.4 and his nomination could mean
only the greatest victory scored
by the party, since the palmy
days of Cleveland."—San Antonio

GLORIOUS RAIN FALLS
Good Season in Ground. Far
mers Can Now Proceed
With Their Work.
—- :v — "
On Tuesday night the flood-
gates of the heayens were thrown
wide open and the rain fell in
torrents for a while, then check-
ing up slightly it continued fall-
ing at intervals during the night
until the ground was thoroughly
soaked. Farmers were well up
with their work, having their
ground prepared for planting,
and now they can go ahead
without delay. Some few new-
comers had begun to complain of
the dry weather, but the old-
timers held firm in the belief
that when it became absolutely
necessary for them to have rain
the Good Lord would supply
their needs arid their belief is
Telephonic reports from all
over the county show that the
rainfall was general in this seo
All those knowing themselves
to be indebted to me for black-
smithing will please call and
settle as I need the money, but
if you haven't the cash bring
wood, produce, or anything to
square the account.

from Geo. W. Riddle, chairman
of the anti-Bailey Club of Dallas,
in which he asks permission to
send us a lot of "bosh" to be used
as a supplement to our paper,
thereby asking us to violate the
postal laws of Texas only to
gratify the desires of himself and
a few more of his ilk. No, sir,
you can't lead us astray. Mr.
