J. D. COTTRELL
Piano, Texas, July 20.—Editors
Dally Courier-Gazette and Weekly
Democrat-Gasette: As thin political
campaign la drawing: to a close, I am
thinking of a abort pithy paragraph
1 read In your paper a few daya ago
and it road something like this: ' Wo
will all have to live here after the
primary election is over so let's not
get too bitter and let's have the
proper regard for the feelings of the
man who differs with us, etc." or
substantially thla language. This
was good sound advice and applies to
all of us, save and except ex-Souator
Bailey, who will not have to live here
after the election is over, but lust he
should doclde to move back to Texan,
let's not be too severe on him, for us-
ually we can win more voters by be-
ing strong for our man's good points
and leave off tho other fellows faults.
In thin connection as the election
draws to a close, 1 want to make a
friendly suggestion und It Is this:
Too ofton tho moral side of a question
Seta ail split up, and tlila Is no ex-
ception to the rule, the opposition is
all concentrutod on one man, while
our forces aro divided nioro or loss
among three, this situation should be
considered and overcome if It can bo
done, and in my Judgment wo ought
to study which one of the three can-
didates, towlt: Neff, Thotnason or
Ijooney, would be tho strongest man
to defeat the common enemy. Tho
difference in tho fundamental princi-
ples of these three gentlemen's plat-
forms, are so slight that any one of
us could easily support the one that
secures the nomination In the final
primary, etc. All three of them are
good men and all have a following,
but which one of them Is the strong-
y est, is a question that should be an-
swered if possible, and which on®
would be tho strongest man to op-
pose Mr. Bailey, should he be in tho
second primary. Most people that I
have talked to lately believe that the
race will be a run off between Neff
and Thomason, with t*e probabllty
that Neff. will lead and the friend# of
each of these insecure candidate#,
are making a hard fight for hla man,
and by being too sanguine, they
may overlook a few things and by
oversight let Mr. Bailey into the
aecond primary, and If they do, we
Jthen have a hard fight for another
^'■4 campaign, etc. Mr. Loonoy, a good
aJV'" I qlean man, seems to have hardly got
tiefore r :©d In tbe running and he
^Castigating hla Baptist brethren for
Muling he Is not in It, ond even charg-
es \hem with "high treason" among
icftiselves. In this I think Mr. Loo-
11 in error. While It Is true that
lost o: tlio Baptists are in favor of
Ir. Neff. not ono of the has ever
iken in any way except In their own
cupacltlos, not one hns ever
D<1 to influence a single voter In
fiduciary capacity, and not ono
I have over talked to, has said
ngalnst Mr. Ixioney. Nearly
>f them give him a perfectly good
9, but most of them seem to think
lias no chanco for election, and
no doubt they think Baptist*
name right that tho Methodists
_ to their choice In a public af-
[so in my Judgment Mr Looney,
Being nights nnd dreaming
in" when he charges the Bap-
rlth collusion, in any way and
a,' nntfl| esvclally 'n an official way. In
liixVfce '|\r Attorney General Mr.
I.l> ).-*>' warmly supported by a
f cliu.1 of professional men. One
* of them told mo that he wrote about
* three thousand letters In Mr. I/ioney a
behalf, and 1 thought they had a por-
feet right ho to do, and I never heard
of Mr. lxioney castigating them
for their jQPP°rt and had the Bap-

TO SPEAK HERE
Hon. Wallace Hughston, chairman
of the invitation committee for the
Collin County Ex-Confederates and
Old Settlers Reunion and Picnic,
which will be held In McKlnney Wed*
nesday, Thursday and l<Ylday, July 28,
29, and 80, informed a reporter of
tbe Daily Courier-Gazette and the
Weekly Democrat-Gazette Monday
afternoon that there would be some
of the ablest speakers in the state de-
liver addresses each day during the
Mr. Hughston has been advised by
Hon. Pat M. Neff and Robert Ewlng
Thomason, that if winners In the pri-
mary election July 24, they will have
speakers here each day, which Is be-
fore the socond primary. Mr. Hugh-
ston further states that he has been
ndvised that Senator Joseph W. Bailey
will be here without fail and doliver
an address on one day of the picnic.
Mr. Hughston has also been notified
that If Mr. Looney is in tho run-off
that he will have a representative
here during tho picnic. Just who
these various speakers will be It Is not
yet known but they wll lbe some of tho
best orators In the State.
T. H. McGregor, candidate for gov-
ernor on tho Amerloan party ticket,
has been invited to Bpeuk hore. Ho has
not yet accepted the invitation, but
friends of his In McKlnney are sure
that he will be here and speak on ono

:avo support to him 1 am sure
li« w(f c not have been at outs with
them/ >r It; who would? Some of
the fading Methodists, who have no
Methodist brother In tho race for
Governor, aro supporting Mr. Neff,
and they have a right to do so. and
C /they surely will not bo accused of
"high political treason" for this.
Brother J. B. Cmnflll. a noted Bap-
tist divine, says that Mr. Ixioney had
better have withdrawn from the raro
than *o havo said tho bitter things he
* has about the Baptists. Cranflll Is a
good progonstloator, and usually
hits hard, but hits above tho bolt.
So, In conclusion, 1 say let's try to
find out the strongest man and all
center on him and try and put him
over in the first primary, and avoid
u second primary. In my humble
judgment Pat M. Neff is this man.
Tho assaults latt> made on him by
tho other ean<£*> m proves this to
my mind, but 1 < tylng this, and whllo
I expect to voto for him, I any noth-
%, j„p against Messrs. Thomason and
Loonoy, for If elthor of them go Into
a second primary, with Mr. Bailey, 1
will gladly ftlve them iny support. So
let's nominate Pat Neff, In tho first
primaty, an<l all get down to busl-
I, notts, and then wo will have "nioro
business and less politics."

Washington, D. C. July 22, 1920.—
Warm waves -will reach Vancouver,
11. C., about July 27, August 2, 7, 14,
and temperuturea will riau on all the
1'uclfic slope. They will cross crest of
Hocktes by close of July 28, August 3,
8, It; plains sections 29, August 4, 9,
16, meridian 90, upper great lakos,
Ohio-Tennessee and lower Mississippi
valleys so, Aug 5, 10, 17; lower great
lakes and eastern sections 31, August
V, 11, 18, reaching vicinity of New.
foundland about August 1, 7, 12, 19.
Storm waves will follow about one
day behind warm waves, cool waves
about one day behind storm waves.
These disturbances will control
cropweather from near July 27 to
near August 19. Cool weather has been
expe&ed to cross 'continent during
.week centering on July 26, followed
by a moderately high temperature
wave crossing continent during week
centering on August 4. Then a low
temperature wave crossing continent
during week centering on August 12. A
dungurous hot wave expected to cross
continent during week centering on
August, usually a quiet cropweather
month, will, for 1920, bo a radicully
rough weather month. Dangerous
storms aro expected during the weeks
centering on August 11 and 26. During
first of these severe storms 1 expect
hall In some northern sections east of
of Kockies. Tho second severe storm
period will be very dangerous on tho
continent and tho oceans. Near August
2b, besides the continental storm, a
great hurricane is expected to or-
ganize east of Cuba. These hurricanes
aro very slow travelers and some-
times require two weeks to get
through the southwestern North At-
lantic. They make a curve In the Car-
ibbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. Other-
wise 1 cannot locate nor time tuem.
! This hurricane will cause frosts in
| the middle and heavy rains In the col-
1 have expected that some parts of
I grain and cotton sections would be
; too dry during July and that ail kinds
of damaging weather would occur
'during August. 1 do not mean to pro-
diet a crop failure nor very great crop
damages; only such destructive wea-
ther In August as will prevent a
bumper crop, which we will surely get
unless bad weather cuts It down to
about an average crop, as 1 expect.
A sudden disturbance Is expected
near August 2 9, when the Earth pass-
es between Uranus and the Sun. An
electro-magnetic force operates be-
tween the Hun and each of tho planets
nnd when that line Is disturbed by a
third body it results in an earthquake,
a weather ovont or an electric storm
that disturbs telegraph wires.
Ten times the efforts ever before
made to work out tho greatest and
most Important solvable problem—
hew to forocast tho weather long in
advance—are now In process. Bases
used aro: Moon alone; planets only;
sunspots only; Sun's rotation on Its
nxls only; Hun's dally output of heat
or force. Each of those get somo good
results. I have studied all their theo-
ries carefully nnd my system has rela-
tion to all of them and yet Is not llko
any of them. Whenever 1 can afford It
1 will demonstrate, publicly, that tho
Moon causes our heat changes, tho
Sun our precipitation changes. Theso
two and relative positions of Sun,
Moon and major planets cause our se-
vere storms and other weather ex-

STATE TAX RATE
CENTS FOR YEAR
Austin, Texas, July 20.—The total
tax rate for this year, which was fix-
ed late today by the State Automa-
tic Tax Board, is 62c, a reduction of
18c under last year's rate, which wan
75c, the constitutional limit.
Despite the appropriations of over
$7,000,000 made by the recent special
session of the Legislature, the Tax
Bourd found It possible to reduce the*
ad valorem tax rate from 86c to 22c a
reduction uf 13c, or about 40 pg
cent. No chunge was made lq the rata
of 35c for schools and 5c for Confed-
Governor Hobby Is extremely grati-
fied over, the condition of the State
Treasury, which" permits a material
cut in tho ad valorem rate. He made
the following comment on the action
of the Tax Board today.
"Tho ad valorem tax rate for the
year in which I went into the gover-
nor's office had been flxod at 85c. It
Is Indeed gratifying to fix it at 22c, a
reduction of ubout 40 per cent, for
tho last year of my torm. It Is more
gratifying to me, too, when it Is tak-
en Into consideration that appro-
priations have been made out of the
general fund as follows: |4,000,000 to
be equally divided among tho school
children of Texas and increase tha
teachers' pay, 82,000,000 for the aid
of tho rural schools whose facilities
are Inadequate and a supplemental
appropriation of over $1,000,000 for
the higher educational institutions ot
the State. The educational system of
Texas has been raised to a higher
standard from bottom to trip and the
school teaehors have been given a
substantial increaso In pay. The
splendid condition of the State's
Treasury has never been equaled bo-
fore In the history of Texas."

Senator Ed Westbrook delivered an
address In McKlnney Saturday after-
noon to a large crowd in the Interest
of his candidacy for Congress from
this the fourth Congressional District.
Mr. Westbrook has been State Sena-
tor of this district for the past two
terms and has made an enviable rec-
ord. In his address here he reviewed
his record as state senutor. Mr. West-
brook at present holds two of the
highest and most important offices hi
tho slate senate—chairman of the fi-
nance committee and president pro
tern of the Benate. Ho was re-elected
as president pro torn of the senate
which broke a precedent In that leg-
islative body. Mr. Westbrook w. tho
author of the bill giving affiliation of
tho Junior Colleges to the higher ln-
sltuatlons of learning in the state, lie
was author of the bill limiting cam-
paign expenses, which places in reach
the Important offices of the state to
the poor man's son. Heretofore tho
higher offices, so to speak, wore put
up and distributed to the highest bid-
Mr, Westbrook is also author of tho
Child Labor Law of Texas, which law
his opponent, Mr. Rayburn, admitted
In his address here last Wednesday
night, was a better Child Labor Law
than the Congress could have passed.
Mr. Rayburn made this statement aft-
er he had defended his record In Con -
gress for voting against tho National
Child Labor Bill.
In reply to Mr. Rayburns state-
ment in his speech here last week in
which he said that anybody could fret;
a law passed in the State Legislature
and that the state would be better off
if the legislature met only once every
fivo years. Senator Westbrook said:
"Mr. Rayburn was in the State Legis-
lature for six years and failed to get a
single bill through and tho only thing
he did do while there (When prohibi-
tion legislation was the paramount ls-
use) was, although he claimed to be a
staunch friend to prohibition that he
appointed thirty antls as chairmen of
committees and only sixteen pros as
chairmen." He further said that Mr.
Rayburn appointed as chairman of
the Military Committee Otto Wahr-
mund, who was &t the time vice pres-
ident of the San Antonio Brewing Co.
and who later became president of
this brewing company.
Mr. Westbrook referred to his oppo-
nent's record while in Congress saying
that he had not succeeded In getting a
single bill passed, and not a single bill
bears the namo of Rayburn. He said
that Rayburn was opposed to the se-
lective draft law, but finally voted for
it after telegrams from every section
of this district had been Bent him to
support it. Mr. Westbrook said that
everytlme Mr. Rayburn voted In favor
of any bill it was not until the people
of his district had given him a "polit-
ical spanking" and mado him do it.
Voters from all over the county
wero here to hear Mr. Westbrook and
at the conclusion of his address he was
loudly applauded, and received assur-
ances of most cordial support from
evory section and precinct of coun-

HOT TIME IN OLD
Saturday afternoon was nous^
the present polltlcul battle now
Ing waged in Texas. Some deoli
the occasion was one of the hottest
political discussions heard here in
•At 2.30 Senator B. G. Senter de-
livered an address in behalf of Joseph.
Weldon Bailey's candidacy for Gov-
ernor. Until recently Senator Senter
was one of /Bailey's bitterest op-
ponents and it was he who, during tha
Builey investigation in the Legislature
some years ago, spoke for nine hours
in the Texas senate in opposition to
Mr. Bailey. His speech here Satur-
day afternoon In defense «f Mr. Batleyl
for the moat part waa taken up by'
apologies for supporting Mr. Bailey lnl
this campaign. f
At the conclusion of Senator Ser '
ter's speech State Senator Ed Wee'
brook dolivcred an address in
half of his candidacy for Coiv?
from the Fourth District.
After Senator Westbrook's addrei
Hon. Preston Pope Reynolds of Dal-
las, one of the slate's best young ora-
tcrs, spoke in behalf of Hon, Pat M.
Noff's cundldacy for governor and
answered the assertions made by
Senter in his speech. ,Reynolds made
ono of the best political speeches
mado here and frequently throug
his address he was loudly applau tfj*
He gave Bailey one of the worst politi-
cal spankings thus far heard In Mc-
Klnney, and said since Senator Sen-
ter had up u.itll recently been strong-
ly opposed to Mr. Bailey anC had
spoken for nine long hours upol. one
occasion bemeanlng and condemning
Mr. Bailey and now had taken tha
stump for Mr. Bailey in this cam-
paign, that there was bound to ba
something dead in Denmark.
He wau in turn answered by Sena-
tor Senter and at the conclusion of
Senator Senter's last remarks, Rey-
nolds again spoke. A large crowd re-
mained throughout the entire aftf«—-
