While the Favorite bus no feur of
Tom Perkins defeating Congressman

gret to see Mr. Rayburn forced to

We did not know before the of-

have always been under the Impres-
sion that the office belonged to the
people und lh.it tlie> li.id the right to
Mil> who they would lease the office
to for a term of two years. If the of-
fice belongs to the mull and not the
l>cople, why did not the founders of
tills government give u congressman
elect u deed to the office for four
years und not make liliu subject to the
will of his landlord (the people)
every two years? As for Mr. Ituyburn
being forced to make the campaign
for the second term, lie is not forced
to any such thing, us there Is no law
on our statute book forcing a man to
even run ut all. Mr. Rayburn'couliV
quit. The first, second, third, or even
the sixth term, has never been ap-
plied to uuy congressional race. Senu-
tor Bailey beat his man for a second,
term and Ills successor, Choice Itan-
(lell hold his six terms. The demo-
cratic voters vote for u man for con-
gress fur what he stands for und not
because he is pretty. This is no side-
stepping time now. A progressive
democrat Is In the presidential cliiili*
at Washington and IIiIh district needs,

.While the Guxcllocr has uiutle It u
rule not to mix In Stute politics, or to
have much to say about thu olllces
outside of the county officials, we are
forced to violate the rule In the case
of Tom W". Perkins of McKlnney, who
bus sliied his sombrero Into the ring
and entered tho race for Congress
from the district with a flying start.
Mr. Perkins had previously stated
that he did not Intend to make the
race this year, and it was thought for
some time that tlie Hon. Choice B.
Hamlell would be In tho race. Now
that Congressman Itundell has defin-
itely stated that he would not make
tho rucc, und that Mr. Perkins lias
come In, we can Htute that wo are un-
hesltutlngly and unqualifiedly for
Tom W. Perkins Ih no stranger in
Denlson by any means, as ho hus
made addresses in this city upon sev-
eral occasions outside of the speech
he made In the Interest of his candi-
dacy for Con"groHs two years ago,
which, by the way, he lost by less
than 800 votes and he hus muny
