of the governor of Georgia,
l to discuss and approve the plan of
the Southern States cotton corpora-
tion for the marketing of all south-
ern cotton. This plan originated
with Governor Colquitt last year
and will be put into effect this year.
The movement looks to 15-cent
cotton. The conference will be held
July 12. _____
A shake-up has been the result
of the Houston police investigation.
The chief of polipe resigned and a
number of policemen were dis-
charged. The time has passed when
a peace officer, armed with club or
revolver, may intimidate citizens in
Texas and hold his job.
The Courier editor personally
would like to see R E. Yantis of
Athens and Daniel E. Garrett of
Houston elected to congress at
large. Mr. Yantis is editor of the
Athens Review and has been for]
many years, and has done as much
for the development of east Texas
as has any other man. He is a
man of strong convictions and a
hard worker and has always lined
up with the side opposed to graft.
The same reasons for desiring the
election of Daniel E. Garrett are
given with, the exception that
he is a lawyer instead of an editor.
And to show that we do not care
which side of the prohibition ques-
tion they are on, we will state that
Yantis is an anti and Garrett a pro.
THIRTEEN GOOD REASONS.
Houston county set the pace for
the democratic nominee for pres-
ident. Houston county went for
Wilson, then Texas went for Wilson
and then the whole democratic
party went for Wilson.
Governor Marshall of Indiana, se-
lected by the democratic national
convention as Wilson's running
mate, was a candidate for the pres-
idential nomination and received
the vote of his state for that nomi-
nation. It was a wise selection.
The first bale of new crop cotton
has made its appearance on the
market, coming to Houston from
Harlingen July 2. The second bale
was ginned at the same point July
6. From now on "first bales" from
the various sections will be reported,
until the movement is on in full
force. Before the full movement of
cotton is precipitated, however, the
governors of the cotton growing
states will have met at Atlanta, at
A writer of more than ordinary
ability gives a baker's dozen of rea-
sons why he should buy at home
instead of placing his patronage
elsewhere. While apparently di-
rected against the mail order houses,
they apply equally as well to that
class of individuals who aré so long
on bargains and so short of civic
pride, that they place their orders in
another community to the disad-
vantage of the present and future
prosperity of their own. Here they
Because my interests are here.
Because the community that is
good enough for me to live in is
good enough for me to buy in.
Because I believe in transacting
business with my friends.
Because I want to get what I buy
when I pay for it
Because my home dealer carries
me when I run short.
Because every dollar I spend at
home stays at home and works for
the welfare of my town.
Because the man I buy from
stands back of the goods.
Because I sell what I produce
here at home.
Because the man I buy from pays
his part of the county, town and
Because the man I buy from gives
value received always.
Because when ill luck, misfortune
or bereavement come, the man I
buy from is here with his kindly
greeting, his words of cheer, and
his pocket book, if need be.

An increasing number of people

Mr. Sheppard is in favor of a law
to prohibit the. interstate shipment
of liquors into prohibition territory
for illegal purposes. Mr. Randell
says he has already advocated in
the house a similar measure, and
he has * already been doing what
Sheppard and Wolters promise to
do. And he did not wait until he
became a candidate for the senate
to express himself to the country.
We find that he made on the floor
of the house, on the 22nd of May,
1906, wheri "lambasting" the re-
publican partv for its omissions
and commissions, the following
forceful and significant remarks
with reference to the failure of the
republican party to enact into law
the Hepburn-Dolliver bill:
"In order to stand with the li-
quor dealers, the mask of hypocrisy
has been used to deceive the people
while denying them just relief from
the abuses of the interstate liquor
traffic. The Hepburn-Dolliver bill,
as it is called, has been held out as
a bait to catch the votes of locali-
ties and states where prohibitive
liquor laws have been enacted; but
what has been done? The republi-
cans have had full power to act for
many years, yet they have done
nothing. This bill was once report-
ed to the House with a 'personal-
use' clause, and then permitted to
die on the calender. The change
in the liquor' law saught by those
really favoring that bill was to pre-
vent liquor dealers, under the pro-
tection of the interstate commerce
law, overriding local prohibitive laws.
It has not been passed, and will not
be as long as the people do not re-
sent the substitution of pretense
and hypocrisy for honest action.
"A bill, introduced in this con-
gress by the gentleman from Missis-
sippi, the democratic leader, which
prohibits interstate C.O. D. packages
of spirituous liquors being sent into
prohibitum, or 'local option' territory,
is, I fear, hopelessly 'pigeon-holed'
in the Judiciary Committee.'
"In a town or country where lo-
cal option has been adopted by the
people, liquor can thus be shipped
who will most likely succeed Sena-
tor Bailey in the senate. Always
in season and out of season, with-
out waiting till he becomes a candi-
date, is he on his feet for right and
for democracy. We need this kind
to 'boot-leggers' and law-breaking j to fight the battles of the people in
idlers, who, after the liquor has ar-1
rived, induce those who wish to de-
bauch themselves with drink (often
wild and thoughtless boys in their
'teens) to furnish the money to
take the liquor from the express
office, thus making really a sale in
the locality where it is prohibited
by law, in effect nullifying the local
law made by the people. Our local
rights are thus infringed, express
offices become liquor shops, law is
disregarded, drunkenness is encour-
aged, public and private morals are
debased, and our youth corrupted.
Yet this party 'machine' cares not,
and will not either offend or injure
the liquor interests."
Such is the record of the man
the senate, and The Democrat is
glad to see that his candidacy has
met with such favor that his suc-
cess in this campaign is claimed by
his friends, feared by his enemies,
and admitted by many who did not
at first support him.—Sherman
