"The Campbells Are Coming."
A LAST WORD.
This is the last Issue of our paper.
We have labored faithfully for a good
cause, and the friends of Mr. Camp-
bell have every reason to believe that
his nomination Is assured.
We are proud to be numbered
among his supporters.
He is a native born Texas Demo-
crat without fear and without re-
He was the only railroad manager
in Texas who supported Hogg and the
measures he stood for.
That man—beloved of the plain
people—was his friend and endorse-!
our candidate in the present race.
He was the first opponent of the
free-pass evil to make a practical ap-
plication of his faith.
It is a matter of common knowledge
along the I. & G. N. road that when
he became receiver of that road he
reduced the free-pass list more than
seventy-five per cent.
He was the only general manager
of a railroad in the United States who
supported Bryan for president.
He resigned his place as manager
rather than surrender his political
We believe in the reforms he advo-
cates and that in no other way than
by his election can the "Hogg amend-
ments" triumph. No other candidate
for Governor is supporting these
His character comports with the
dignity and power of the high offica
of Governor of Texas.
He will be just. He will be firm.
He will be true.
