mer Congressman Jack Beall
ot Dalian delivered an address hero
Monday night In the Interest of
Joseph W, Bailey's candidacy for
vernor of Texas. Mr. Beall spoke
in the district court room to a good
Mixed crowd. Mr. Beall was Intro-
duced by Mayor Henry A. Finch.
Mr. Beall said that inasmuch as
the present campaign ends within two
week* every person should be very
careful what ha said, fur we will all
have to live together after the pri-
mary is over, therefore the unkln*
and bitter things should bost be left
In coming to McKlnney to speak
had no selfish purpose in view
t on the contrary he was interested
in the cauBo of good government as
every citizen should be. Here the
speaker argued that the polltlclaft
ho comes to you and appeuls to
our passion or prejudice to secure
your vote insults you. The politician
thinks he can best sway your mind
by appealing to the lower things than
by appealing to your sense of Judg*
tnent and fairness. The lower ele*
ments should not be allowed to gain
the ascendancy, he said,
He said he believed that If the
voters of this stute wont to ballot box
in the spirit that was Intended when
the secrct ballot was devised—ap-
proach the obligation In a spirit of
loyalty and devotion to duty, with
M their minds unprejudiced, with tho
I determination to vote for the man
t who Is best fitted and qualified—the
man best equipped by mental capa-
city and experience, Pat Neff wouldi
not get 25,000 votes in the coming
primary. ( Applause.)
x Mr. Beall argued that much of the
opposition to Mr. Bulley In this cam-
paign is from disappointed politi-
cians, and persons who harbored pet-
ty animosities, trivialities and resent-
ment. Mr Beall admitted himself
having gone to congress with iua
mind prejudiced against Bailey but he
soon changed hia mind wh«n he dis-
covered the greatness of Bailey.
He told of Bailey's love and d#vo>
tlon to friends, consecration to July,
remarkable courage and bravery,
and said that he had seen Bailey In
action In the senate of the Uplted
State*, among other greut men, and
that ho towered above them all. He
had seen him appear In the U. 8.
Supreme court chamber, observed
the deference and respect and con-
sideration shown him, which was not
hown to ordinary men. He had
i n Bailey measure lances with the
greatest men on the Democratic and
Republican Hides of tho senate—that
they had always retired discomfited
and wounded. Ho had boon recognis-
ed as tho greatest of them all.
He had heen crowds In the Benate
spellbound by the magic of his elo-
quence nnd told how when the an-
nouncement of a forthcoming speech
by Bailey was made the senate was
crowded to capacity long before the
hour he was to spoak.
Mr Beall deprecated the effort be-
ing made by eneinleti of Batloy to
destroy "a man who had given so
much credit and honor to Texas."
Mr. Boall said that Bailoy wail
made leador of his party within six
years after he had entered Congress
the youngest member of that body, the
only Texan to ever attain that honor
alias a fit cither before or since that time,
jhapel, Ljr Mr. Beall admitted that Bailey was
—not a perfect man and said that it
seemed to bo a characteristic of tho
nuui if he had faults to exhibit thum.
This was not true of the politician,
he said, who attempted to hide his
"1 am willing," said Mr. Beall,
"for every perfect man In Collin
county to vote for Mr. Neff If every
imperfect man will vote for Mr.
Bailey. I believe we would carry the
county almost unanimously."
Voice: We will do that anyway.
Mr. Bailey's candidacy for govornor
offers tho (x-oplo of Texas an oppor-
( tunlty to select a man whose great-
ness of Intellect, ripeness of experi-
ence and years of study is unquestion-
ed. Do you want that kind of a gov-
ornor, ho asked.
i Voices: Tea, yea.
Mr. Boall—I did not ask you If
you needed one. 1 have known that
all the time. (Applause.)
Ho is not a candidate in the hope
of obtaining honor or personal ag-
grandisement, Mr. Beall said, but
rather to be of service to tho people
ho loves and to show them his ap-
preciation of what they have don-i
"We need an honost-to-goodness
governor, a big man, a man who will
not rattle around In tho governor'!'
* chair," said Mr. Beall,
lie described Mr. Noff's challenge
to Bi'lley for a Joint debate as tho sec-
ond best Joke of the season. Mr. Neff,
bo s.iId, was trying to create the 1m-
. press'nn thai Mr. Bailey Is afraid of

Washington, D. C., August 19.—
Uate great improvements in my fore-
casts will begin with tho first of Nov-
ember next. Warm wave will reach
Vancouver, B. C„ near Aug. 26 and
temperatures will rise on all the Pa-
cific slope and over the middle and
northern Rockies. Its center will
uiove southeastward. reuching St.
Louis about 28. Its path will be by
way of Salt Lake. It will continue
southeast from St. Louis, reaching
Atlanta about 29, then northeastward
reuching Ottawa and eastern sections
about Aug. 80 or SI. Very warm
weather will prevail along and south
of this central path, cooler north of
Tho central part of tho low or
storm center will follow the warm
wave path, about one day behind and
the cool wave center about two days
behind. This disturbance will have
greater than average rorce; will be
larger than usual; more rain Is ex-
pected from It than past averages of
this Summer. My forecasts have
said thut August would bring more
rain than July.
I am expecting very destructive
frosts in our northern States and the
Canadian provinces oast of Rpckles'
crest during the weok centering on
Sept. 11. Much of the corn crop lot
late and, as I see it, will be badly
damaged. These frosts will also
damage some of the late crops Iji
Canada. I am expecting the most
severe storms of the year Immediate-
ly followed by a cold wave and kill-
ing frosts during thut week.
Soft corn would be fed to cattle
and hogs und thut would bring down
the price of beef. The average dates
of killing frosts In our northern tier
of States Is from Sopt. 15 to 25 and
the earliest dates Sept 1 to 10. 1 ex-
pect killing frosts In northern part*
of the cotton belt during the week
centering on Oct. 5.

An Idea From Foster's Weather
The striving to solvo the greatest
and In practice the most Important
problem of the ages and one which Is
quite solveuble, namely, how to fore-
east tin* weather long In advance, is
now ten times greater than ever be-
fore. The buses used are the Moon,
th/> planets, the Sunspots, the Sun's
rbtation, the solar output of heat,
each taken separately and exclusively.
Foster's own would seem to bo a sort
of combination system which is in
part related and in part unrelated to
most of the above. It certainly takes
In the Sun, he plunots and the Moon.
As, beyond all doubt, our planotary
systom Is an Intricate network of in-
terrelations, one feels Inclined to
award the palm to Foster. Ho lias
been longest In tho fold and must
know what he Is talking about.
There Is one tiling about long-
range forecasting which has over
been a puzzle and It Is tho determin-
ed opposition It lias ever met at the
hands of our professional forecaster
for the day that comes after today.
Were It not well for these opponents
to settle once for all whether fore-
casting long In advance Is possible or
Impo-'lble? If possible, opposition
heroines irrational; if Impossible, It
Is scientific folly to strlvo aftor It.
