The Rev. B. F. Watson of thle olty

Sunday at 4 o'clock.
Promptly at 7 o'clock Saturday
night the crowds commenced to gath-
er around the election board which
was arranged on the west wall of the
1* V. Graves & Co. store on North
Tennessee street and in a very short
time the largest crowd ever assembled
to receive election returns in Mc-
Klnney wus aeon about the board.
People pushed and Jammed their way
through the great mass of humanity,
eurgerly c run in;- their necks to get a
glimpse of some figures on some fa-
vorite candidate. Some of the races
being very close the crowd seemed to
grow larger until almost midnight. At
3 o'clock Sunday morning there were
yet perhaps fifty people gazing at thei
mass of flgurt* on the black canvass.
While this was going on there wore a
number of tired election officers In
tho southeast room of the court house
counting the votes In that box and not
a great while before the dawn of day
the faithful workers handed out thei
slip bearing tho vote from that city
box. This was pluced on the election
The reports from tho various boxes
were received at the ofnee of The
Dally Courier-Gazette and Weekly
Democrat-Gazctte, mostly by tele-
phony and were then rushed to the
It was a lively crowd that gathered
to get tho news. At times there would
so up yells like those of a Comanche
Indian and occasionally a few hats
could be seen sailing in the air.
Renner w:is the first box in the
county to report, this coming In only
a few minutes after 7 o'clock. By
Monday morning every box in the
county had mude a report of the votes

participate In the run-off In the or-
der mentioned. That the total vote
will not be In excess of 440,000 Is in-
dicated by tho reports of the Texai
Election Bureau, as nearly 400,000
votes have been accounted for with
Incomplete boxes gradually becoming
Little more than one-half of the
votes cast during the election two
years ago have been totaled and the
final result Is not expected to be mora
ihnn 66 per cent. A comparison of
the returns in 1918 show 75,632 were
cast In tho lust election while 116.704
voles were registered two years ago.
As the forty-five counties are repre-
sentative of the State as an average
It may be assumed that not more
than 66 per cent of tho 1918 vote
has been cast this year.
The above results show that less
than half tho potential voting
strength of the State Is Indicated In
tho total and that the proportion Is
lower than uninteresting electlorte in

THOMASON WILL VOTE FOR
NEFF FOR GOVERNOR
The statement of Mr. Thomason la
"I am deeply gruteful to my friends
for their generous support. I have no
excuses or apologies to make for my
defeat. The Democrats have spoken
and their verdict is cheerfully accept-
ed. I am pleased to have received the
generous support that was accorded
rue In ull sections' of Texas. In the
run-off election my friends, of course,
are privileged to support tlie man of
their choice. -
"As for myself I do not wish any-
body to misunderstand my position.
"In view of the fight I made In
Cooke County us well as In behalf of
the National Democratic administra-
tion, 1 can not support Mr. Bailey.
"Regardless of developments In the
reccnt campaign, I place the interest
of my stato and the success of the
Democratic party above everything
"I shall therefore support Mr. Neff
"I will take no active part In the
next primary," said Mr. Thomason. "1
am going back to El Paso, whore I
will resume by connection with my
law firm. I am going to give Mr.
Neff my voto and urge my friends to
give him the samo consideration.
"It Is impossible to thank all my
friends for tholr kindness and appre-
ciation shown me. but I want to con-
voy this message to all: Vote for the
man avhoso principles aro for tho bet-
torment of Texas. Study Mr. Neffs
qtialcltlons nnd do the same concern-
ing Mr. Bailey. You will see a vast
difference. Then voto according fo
your own good Judgment."

MY OF DEMOCRAT PARTY
Following is the statement given
out yesterday by Mr. Looney:
"I would no mora think of support-
ing Bailey than any othor enemy
who has tried to destroy tho Demo-
cratic party. Ho has forfeited all
claims on Democrats. His triumph
would be the triumph of forces In

my life. Certainly I will not surren-

The rain was good on corn and truck

was doing nicely before the rain. The
rain, some say, will probably cause
the plant to shod aome of Its fruit,

Dallus, Texan, July 28.—Thprc are
many reasons why Pat Neff, and
not Mr. Bulley, should be nominated
in tho second primary for the office
of Governor. These are sotue of
- 1. The Constitution requires the
Governor to have been u resident of
the State for at least five years. Mr.
Bailey has not resided in Texas for
nine years or more.
2. The law contemplates that any
man nominated by the Democratic
party to be Governor should be a
Democrat. As to whether Mr. Bailey
is a Democrat must depend on def-
initions. I understand a Democrat
to be one who believes in the"~~party
creed, and who pledges himself to
vote the party ticket. If Mr. Bailey's
public utterunces are to bo credited,
and I am assuming they are, he does
not believe in the Democratic plat-
form udopted at Sun Francisco, but
utterly repudiates it, In this: That he
does not believe in the Federal Re-
serve Bank system, the Land and
Loan Bank, woman suffrage; he does
not believe that we Bhould have en-
tered the war with Germany, and he
does nqt believe that we should have
prosecuted it so vigorously, but that
we should only have sent over- about
a million of men. I know that there
are those who Insist that a man may
be a Democrat and repudiate Us plat-
form. It Is as Impossible for a man
to be a Democrat und repudiate the
platform as it is to be a Christian and
lepudiute tho Naxarene. Recurring
again to Mr. Bailey's public utter-
ances, and I quote from no others, he
does not fill the second requirement;
that is, he Is not pledged to support
the nominees of the party. On the
contrary, he has publicly pledged
himself not to support the nominee
of the party if he happens to be in
uccord with Woodrow Wilson and
others named* On his pilgrimage to
Texas last year, when he had it in
his mind to organise a new party, he
announced that he never would vote
for any man who agreed with Wood-
row Wilson, Morris Sheppard and
Cyclone Davis, assuming that the
three believed in the same general
propositions. Pat Neff believes with
Wilson. Mr. Bailey, therefore, stands
pledged to the proposition that he
can not and will not vote for him in
the event that he should be success-
ful. That prevents his being a Demo-
crat, because he neither has the
Democratic faith nor will he indulge
in the Democratic practice of voting
the ticket. He should have no place
In a Democratic primary. In addi-
tion to all this, he Just closed a cam-
paign In which he was most glori-
ously defeated, in which he sought
to repudiuto national Democracy
and announced in a public speech. If
the newspapers are to be credited,
that "If he lost that fight the Demo-
cracy of Texas was dead."
3. If tho Democrats shall nominate
Bailey they will be embarrassed by
the fact that during tho war struggle
he did nothing to help the cause
along. He made no Red Cross speech-
es; he made no appeal to the citizens
to buy Liberty bonds. Pat Neff pur-
sued a different course. He looked
across the ocean into France and
Flanders and saw the new-made
graves into which the mangled forms
of our brave boys were laid, and hje
thought that If they could give their
ilven for the salvation of the world
the man with money could afford to
give up a few paltry dollars for the
same great and holy cause. The
Democrats will not have to apologize,
!' Put Neff Is nominated, for going
nto the war to maintain tli© free-
dom of the seas. Bailey will bo em-
barrassed by his position that we had
no light to ko Into the war; that It
was all wrong. Once In the war, tho
Democrats approve the course of
Woodrow Wilson In putting all of tho
American energy behind it to win it.
Bailey thought wo ought to have
limited ourselves to one million of
men, even after we found It necessary
to go In. The red-blooded Democrats
-yea, tho red-blooded Republicans—
will agree that when Uncle Sam want
into that war he should have gone
with his full power, as he did, to
make success certain.
Would it not be a monstrous thing
to do, after having nominated Cox
and Roosevelt, who believe in the
same things that Wilson believes In,
who are fighting for the same things
for which Wilson is fighting, now to
nominate a candidate for Governor
who believes Just the opposite?
It would bring Joy to the hearts of
tho Republicans when they read that
Texas, the Gibraltar of Democracy,
has repudiated Cox and Roosevelt nnd
has planted Itself upon the platform
of tho Republicans. Tho Republicans
In every doubtful State will take re-
newed courage and victory,, ff not en-
tirely prevented, will be made very
much more difficult. The. Democracy
can not oven consider voting for Bai-
ley unless they nlso vote for Harding.
Tho question of open shop or closed
shop is not Involved. Neither Neff
nor Bailey can help or hinder thnt
proposition by any official aid of
theirs. Hobby dealt with that at
Galveston. All other executives can
do tho same now; their powers are

August hurricanes are moving1

It Is a remarkable fact that preci-
pitation on this continent is controll-
ed by the direction of the movements
of the atmospheric moisture toward
the storm centers as they move east-
