Taylor, Texas, May 8.—Dan Moody opened
his campaign for governor among his friends and
neighbors here tonight. Thousands of people
crowded into Taylor to hear the attorney general,
many of them driving miles by automobile, buggy
and even horse-back. Many came by train from
distant cities and towns.
Moody opened his address by reviewing his
public record from the time he was county attor-
ney of Williamson county to his present position
as attorney general. His speech in part follows:
Fellow Citizens: Obeying my own
Impulses, and responding to a gen-
erous Invitation received from the
citizens of this community $ come to'
scenes familiar to me from the (lays
of my childhood, and anionfe people

open my formal canvass of this state
My father came to this town just
n little over n half a century, ago—In
April, 1876-to establish his home.
My mother came here forty years aso
t,o tench in the public schools. My
sister and myself were born here,
have lived here all our lives, and my
parents both died In this city. The
friends I have in Taylor are those of
a lifetime, and it Is natural that I
should desire to make my opening
speech among those friends who have
known me all my life and can best
testify ns t„ the equipment which T
can bring to the office of governor.
I want to give full expression to
the sentiments of appreciation which
I I'eel for your invitation and for the
presence of you who have come to
take part in the formal opening of my
A few years ago you elected me
county attorney without opposition,
and after one term in that office T
was appointed tn the office of dis-
trict attorney, and whs then elected
to that office without opposition. 1
assumed the obligations of those posi-
tions at a time when the people's pa-
tience was sorely tried by the many
violations of the criminal laws. Dur-
ing the time T held official delinquency
was brought against me. That T met
and discharged the duties of those of-
fices, the court, records of this county
mid district will reflect and the citi-
zens will verify.
Later, the citizenship of this coun-
ty gave its máximum strength in sup-
port of my candidacy for the high and
honorable position of attorney general
(it Texas. In that campaign feeling
ran high. I was oppose by three
men, each of them many years my
senior, both in years and in experi- j
ence at the bar. and each of them |
was questioned Integrity and high j
standing In the legal profession. In
the first campaign I received more
than 315,000 votes, or approximately
5000 less than a majority over th
combined vote of my three opponents. |
In the second primary I was opposed :
ly the next highest candidate, and I
in that Instance I receive nearly aj
halt' million votes and was successful
in leading the state ticket. The cam- j
palgn was made without bitterness;
between any of the candidates for at-
torney general, and I believe that 1
cun with modesty say that the gentle-
men who opposed me as candidates in
that election remained my friends and
are now uiy friends.
