HEREFORD. TEXAS. MAT IS. 1910
GOOD SHOWERS FALL IN THE FAVORED PANHANDLE
CudMite tor Omnor Speaks to
£arf Cvwwl in Defensr of his
Hon. WUUam Poindexter of Cle-
burne, Texas, candidate for gover-
nor, was the guest of the city Tues-
day and Hereford did her part as
far at her citizens were able—and
they were able.
First candidate for high office to
visit Hereford, Judge Poindexter of
Cleburne, given royal reception.
A large crowd filling the opera house
hears the imminent judge. Outlines
his policies and defends his platform.
Raps state government for loose man-
agement of penal institutions and loss
of money by state. Hits opponents
for their political methods and tears
off a few coon skins from the log
The reception committee composed
of a number of leading citizens met
the candidate at the 5 o'clock train
with ( bvftit band. A good crowd
of men and ladies were also at the
train. The Poindexter party was
taken in charge and were given a-
partmedts at the Northern Hotel.
A short informal reception was
Jm14 on the platform at the depot
where the Judge met a number of
old friends. A number of citizens
dined at 6 o'clock where the candi-
date was again given due courtesies.
Hen. Geo. W. Barcus, democratic
chairman, was master of ceremonies.
At 8:30, a big crowd had assem-
bled at the opera house and were
awaiting the speaker of the evening.
As he and a few friends entered, a
hearty cheering was given. Judge
Poindexter went at once to the stage
and was followed by a number of
citizens, who were seated. Mayor
J. H. Head, ex-mayor S. B. Ed-
wards, ex-mayor L. Gough, Geo. W.
Barcus, master of ceremonies and
chairman of the meeting, E- B.
Black, J. L. Fuqua, Eli Dunlap, A.
J. Lipscomb, A. H. EUiston, C. W.
Warren, W. D. Kelihor, W. A. Ric-
ketts, T. G. Nance, Homer Wilkin-
son, E. T. Woodbum, Uncle Tom
Robinson, Granpa Mcintosh and the
Mr. Barcus arose and introduced
the speaker, saying-
Judge William Poindexter does
not need an introduction to the peo-
ple of Hereford for some have known
him for forty years and those who
know him the most love him the best.
He is a native born Texan and saw
the light 55 years ago. He has the
distinction of having lived in one
county 50 years and the people of
that county, Johnson, are willing to
swear that no better man ever trod
the soil of lty native land. He is
the first candidate for govenor ever
to visit Hereford and Hereford feels
highly honored. We believe, I be-
lieve, that Judge Poindexter will
roll up the biggest majority in the
Panhandle ever given to any man.
He stands flatfooted on every prin-
ciple that effects the welfare of Tex-
as. And so I have the distinguished
honor and take great pleasure in
introducing our friend Judge Wil-
liam Poindexter of Cleburne, the
next govenor of Texas."
Judge Poindexter at once arose
COLZAS, CAVHAS AHD GERANIUMS
and began his opening remarks. Be
complimented Hereford and t h e
Hereford citizens for the enterpriee
and paseed the courtesies of the day.
The first touch of the campaign
was given when he refered to the
postal card candidate with the log
cabin and coon skins. The crowd
warmed up to the speaker and he
waded into the various subjects with
evident familiarity. His speech of
two hours followed about the same
line of talk and argument that he has
given at other planes, his speech
following closely the daily news-
paper reports. Those who have
kept posted on his former declar-
ations for reform and submission and
his opposition to state-wide prohi-
bition saw him reiterate and defend
his principles more strongly Tues-
His speech was well received and
heartly applauded. At the close
many gathered around the platform
and shook the hand of their favorite
Judge Poindexter has many warm
friends in the city and they are
pleased with bis visit. They pre-
dict a solid vote for him in the July
primary and from now on they will
work to that end.
Hereford Ladies Will Dedicate New
Park May 18 in Honor
We notice that some of the papers
of the country are criticising the
commissioners' court of Deaf Smith
County for putting $125,000.00 in
their new court house, said to be
one of only three marble court hous-
es in the United States. If these pa-
pers will send representatives to
Hereford and Deaf Smith County,
they will learn that nothing short of
$125,000 would be sufficient to pro-
vide a temple of justice commensur-
ate with the needs of the people and
in keeping with the other improve-
ments being made,—Vernon Record.
WXATHBR.—Tonight and Sat-
urday generally cloudy. Showers
in the Panhandle tonight and Sat-
urday. Warmer tonight.—Cline.
This week the ladies of the Moth-
er's Club began work on a new park,
a gift from the city. It is the 3 cor-
nered block in West Hereford at the
end of 4th street on 25 mile avenue.
As a start* r t > inprovs the grounds,
Messrs. Murchison, Britain, Barcus,
Warren and Snyder each gave $5.00
in cash. Work has begun and it is
the purpose of the ladies to dedicate
the park on Wednesday, May 18, in
honor of Halley's comet, which will
visit the earth on that day.
This is the third park for Here-
ford and civic attractiveness is be-
ginning to take hold of the Hereford
people. In every direction trees
have been planted and in one or two
more years, the city will be a thing
of beauty. Even now, a drive over
the streets will make one proud of
the beauty side of the city.
Tha most important news from
tlie progressive towns and cities of
the Panhandle is to the effect that
new school buildings are under con-
struction, that bonds have been vot-
ed for the erection of better build-
ings, or that elections have been or-
dered to determine on the voting of
such bonds. Good news, all of it,
and it indicates more strongly than
anything else might the steady
growth of this favored section of
Texas. More than that, it speaks
volumes for the future.—Daily Pan-

Suggestions to the Secretary.
In accordance with thie invitation
of Secy. S. B. Holman, the list of
slogans for Hereford is respectfully
and respectively submitted bya bunch
of bum boosters. In case any of them
srtike his musical mind for booster
bombs, he may mail the five dollar
check to the Brand office and same
will be used for the "good of the
cause." The Secretary has surely
put a hard task before the boosters
but it may result in some quick flash
of mentality, like a stroke of light-
ning, and emblazen on the banner a
slogan that would be caughi up by
the popular refrain. It has been
suggested that he do not limit the
slogan to three H's. This limits
the field of fertile minds and circum-
vents the genius of Hereford's best.

A Birthday Party.
A most enjoyable surprise party
was that given by Dr. and Mrs. A.
L. Taylor on Saturday evening,
May 7, for their daughter, Miss
Gertrude, the occasion being her
seventeenth birthday. The unex-
pected guests came with one accord.
Miss Gertrude quickly entered into
the spirit of the hour, entertaining
her guests with various games
music. Dainty refreshments were
served, after which the cutting ot
the birthday cake caused much mer-
riment. A number of gifts were re-
ceived by Miss Gertrude, among
them a handsome gold watch from
Dr and Mrs. Taylor. At a late
hour, good nights were said with
many wishes for another evening at
the Taylor home

the home team."

Status of Railroad.
What's being done about the Here-
ford North & South Railroad ? This
question put to several who have
been working, and it was answered
in the negative. F. H. Obertheir
said that he thought it all off. S. B.
Edwards said that there were 15
men who had some get-up but the
rest were doing nothing and that we
were further from a railroad than
we were three years ago. Both men
however thought well of Mr. Bas-
C. W. Dodson who has the official
subscription list to the stock sub-
scription says that we are just going
right on working at it, regardless of
what other roads may do. Here-
ford can use two more roads to an
