Corsicana, Texas, July 29.—"Jo«

en shop movement In Texas under the
guise of being its friend," Cone John-
son of Tyler devoured in a heated ad-
dress here tonight on the courthouse
lawn In support of Pat Neff for Oov.

ted Suites Senator from Texas and
the things for which he stands.
♦ ♦ ♦
Bailey Has Nut Changed.
As chief foeman of Bailey in the
memorable campaign of 1008, John-
son reviewed that campaign briefly
and predicted that the seiiuel of the
present campaign would be akin to
that of the earlier.
"Joe Bailey is the same Bailey
whom 1 fought in 1908," ho declared.
'He has not changed one iota, and
mv conception of Bailey has not
changed. He is the same Bailey
whose plow was cleaned, as the farm
boys say, so decisively in May. Ho
feels precisely toward Democracy and
the Democratic party as he did when
the Democratic party of Texas passc^
on hia case at Dallas In April. He
feels precisely toward the party and
Its achievements as he did when the
an Francisco convention passed on
"No man has heard him say he ac-
cepts. adopts, or will even swallow
the platform that was adopted by
your party and mine at San Francweo.
"One of the Ideas I want to em-
phasize before you, my friends,is that
the next Governor of Texas should
have as a qualification some claim of
being mi speaking terms v.'ltli eight
years of Democratic administration
of this Nation. When Bailey was
forced out of Texas in 1908 and ho
was forced out of the State then—he
picked up his doll rags,pouted,scowl-
ed, reared, grumbled and departed.
"I speak hy the card when I say
that Joe Bailey was not on speaking
terms with Congress, the White House
the Senator or any other branch of
our National Government for elglu
years of Democratic administration.
He was not on speaking terms with
Democratic things because he was so
eaten with rancor, wounded pride,
disappointment and egotism that ho
could not find a single word of praise
for the things that were being done."

Audletux? Is 2,000.
Johnson's audience included prob-
ably 2,000 men, women and children
drawn up in closely packed semicir-
cle around the speaker's stand adjac-
«lit to the courthouse steps. Fully
half the crowd was standing back of
the chairs that had been provided for
about 1,000 and the curbs were lined
with automobile loads on both streets
on that side of the courthouse. Down
In front the crowd was fringed with

ed lustily every thrust at the man who

of the kind that catches the speakers'
inspiration and echoes his more strik-
ing satire in phraoes of their own
"I have seen in a newspaper,"
Johnson declared, "that Bailey is go-
ing to speak for# Cox and Roosevelt
in the national campaign. Now my
friends, 1 don't believe a word of that.
Where, pray will they send him?
(Voice: "Duval County.")
Certainly the Democratic campaign
committee will not send him into
those twenty-seven States where wo-
men vote. They can not nllow him to
go there and inveigh against woman's
participation in political affairs. Sure-
ly they can not afford to allow him
to enter those States where the peo-
ple have faith In the Federal Reserve

think It wise for him to go Into agri-
cultural SSates that have been bless-
ed by the instrumentality of tho
Farm Ixian Banks at which he throws*
his arrows of contempt. He can not
go into any State that believes in the
regulation of child labor and certain*
ly Into no State to spew out his wrath
where the citizens believe the hours
that women work and the conditions
under which they should work should
by regulated. No State that believes
in the Is'iigue of Nations would wel-
come him except that tho Borahs
Johnsons, Hoke Smiths and Iteeds
of Missouri wound lie on hand to
shake his hand. If Bailey Is nomi-
nated or defeated in the primary in

Itailcy Will Not Campaign for Cox.
"No, my friends, h'o will not go on
this crusade, We have had two na-
tional campaigns since Joe Balleyi
tucked his tail and ran away from
Texas, lie did make a speech about

speech was used in the campaign of

nounced Woodrow Wilson and the

over the country as ltopubllcan cam-

Sunflowers and other weeds are
higher than a man's head, and despite
the efforts of persons living in that
section of the city to have these
weeds cut. they have been allowed to
ko unmolested. No attempt was even
made to cultivate these vacant lots.
The owners even refuse to sell lots io
persons Interested who would have
elected homes. These weeds should bo
cut at once. It is very unsanitary and
unhealthy where they are allowed to
glow so numerous.
Persons living in that section of the
city state that they will take the mat-
te, up and got up a petition to.be pre-
s'Mitod *to the city commission asking
that persons who orfn the lots be
prosecuted' if Ihese weeds are not cut
and the lots cleaned off very soon.
The cutting of these weeds and
these lots might save the life of more
than one person. Persons owning sni.l

cleiin tip their property at once.

submitting it forecasts its adoption. It
is but proof of the correctness of the
opinion which I have entertained and
announced heretofore that the amend-1
ment was defeated in 1918 because

prohibition amendment, and the soli-!

In the country, in the towns and in
the cities to acquire homes, Tho idea
that the State will issue bonds for this
purpose, or make appropriations out
of the general fund and tax the
people to buy homes, Is untrue and ab-
surd. It will simply be authority for
establishing a rural credit system in
Texas, with the credit and authority
of tlie State behind it, to create a re-
volving fund which will afford per-
sons the opportunity to borrow money

period of time at a low rate of Inter-

a State agency using these mortgages
