KNOX CITY, KNOX COUNT*. TEXAS, FRIDAY, APRIL, 1, 190?.
On Saturday night, tht 28th,
a mats meeting of Anti-Bailey
Democrats was called, and the
Knox City Anti-Bailey Demo-
cratic Club was organized. Sam
Anderson was elected permanent
chairman; and W. M. Sandifer,
"Baileyism" was discus-ed in
its various phrases.
A motion was made and car-
ried that the Club set aside $25
to pay tneir part of the primary
The following resolutions were
presented and unanimously a-
1st. Whereas the time is now
upon us to choose men to repre-
sent us in the various offices to
tie filled this year and to select
delegates to the various conven-
tions; and believing it to be the
duty of every honest citizen to
favor an honest administration
of publi! affairs both State and
Federal. Therefore, we the un-
dersigned Democrats of Knox
county, Texas, hereby denounce
as wrong, for a public servant of
the people, to represent; either
for loans, friendship, or any
other consideration commonly
known as "Baileyism" any trust
or other public service corpora-
2nd. And we further desire
that such conduct be denounced
in the next Democratic platform
and to this end we wish to send
to the Democratic National Con-
vention, to meet at Denver, Col-
orado, only such delegates, as
are known to be opposed to such
conduct on the part of public of-
ficials, and therefore we pledge
ourselves to vote for the delega-
tes who will or have pledged
3rd. And we further hereby
endorse the action of the Waco
4th. Whereas Senator J. W.
Bailey has declared he would do
the very things that we de-
nounce as wrong, and is at heart
opposed to the greatest states-
man of the present age; viz.,
William Jennings Bryant. For
these reasons we are opposed to
Senator Bailey as a delegate to
the National Convention. We
are unalterably opposed jto the
dictatorship of Senator Bailey or
any oth r man in Texas.
5th. Furthermore we hereby
endorse General R. V. Davidson
for re-election and pledge him
our hearty support.
There were 37 good democrats
present who signed tke above
resolutions and the membership
ef the club has more than dou-
bled since then ond new mem-
bers signing daily.

A Trip to Munday.
The editor accompanied by
Mr. Morris made a trip to Mun-
day on Monday afternoon last.
Munday is the little town that
lies to the east of us, and is a
fairly good one.
We, of course, first looked up
the boys of the Munday Times.
We found Messrs Durham, Ruff,
Bolin and our old standby Ear-
nest R. Brown in the very best
After a short chat with the
boys a ¡¿fine lunch was served
which was highly enjoyed by we
visitors. Our friend Durham is
a great man to have lots of good
things to eat, yet judging from
his looks one would think that
eating is something that never
bothers him and something that
he never indulges in.
Mr. Brown will hereafter be
with the News.1 He is an artist
at the printing trade and wc will
say that our customers can al-
ways expect first class work at
the News office.
Our trip was a great deal of
help to us. We were glad to see
wheat, oats, and corn looking
so well. One can't help being
thankful ttyat they live in Knox
City when they get out and see
what we have and the bright
prospects that are before us.
Our market , this year will be
flooded with wheat, oats and
other small grain. The acreage
of land in cultivation this year
wjII bean increase of more than
25 per cent over that of last
Fine Stock Association Organized.
Tuesday night at the Knox
Hotel, Mr. A. B. Hill, represent-
ing J. Crouch & Son of Lafayette,
Ind., organized a stock company
for the purpose of breeding fine
stock. The company has pur-
chased through Mr. Hill, a fine
German coach horse imported
direct from Oldenburg, Germany,
and is one of the best all purpose
and individual use horses ever
brought to West Texas. The
company is composed of citizens
of Knox City and surrounding
country, and will ,be known as
the German Coach Horse Associ-
ation, of Knox City, Texas.
The following gentlemen have
taken stock in the association,
and are representative men of
this community: J. A. Wooc, C.
J. Farmer, Dr. G. P. Gibner, C.
C. Tucker, A. L. Lea. G. D. Mc-
Carty, J. W. Smith, W. B. Wil-
liams, M. F. Swain, Roy Butlerr.
Mr. J. A. Wood, who is an ex-
perienced horse man, will have
charge of the horse and will be
glad te meet and talk with any
who are interested in the breed-
ing of fine stock, or desires the
services of this fine horse.
At the close of the meeting
a nice lunch accompanied with
beer and cigars was enjoyed by
those present. The editor, who
happened in at a late hour after
making his usual rounds, can
vouch for this part of the pro-
Mr. Hill has been very success-
ful in selling these horses and it
will only be a few years until
West Texas can boast of as fine
horses as can be found in any
section of the country.
A Safe Combination.
