by the Jaybird association as a
candidate for county attorney.
A nomination at the hands

the man, because Teddy wants
him, and that ends it.
A wind storm struck Dallas
Thursday morning and blew

A Dallas lawyer named Hop-
kins wanted to run for governor
and applied to State Chairman
Carden to have his name pat on
the ticket, but he was too late
and cannot run. Nice governor
that fellow would make, if he
doesn't know enough about the
laws of the state to get his
name on the ticket.
Gen. Clement A. Evans was
elected [commander in chief of
the United Confederate Veterans
defeating Gen. Cabell by the
small margin of 188 votes. The
vote stood, Evans 1232, Cabell
1084, and on motion of Gen. Ca-
bell the election of Gen. Evans
was made unanimous. Gen. Ca-
bell was re-elected commander
of the Trans-Mississippi depart-
ment without opposition.
"The indications are that Col-

seems the Bailey issue is going
to be prominent in the county
campaign in Freestone county. —
And Freestone is not the only
either. Over here in this
flotorial district the anti-Bailey
men met in Waco directly after
the Baliey primary and "put
out" candidates against Kennedy
and O'Bryan lor floater and
Terrell for senator, the said
Kennedy. O'Bryan and Terrell
being Bailey men, and the fel-
lows who"put out" the antisdid
not call in any of the voters from
outside of McLennan county
either. Yes, the Bailey question
is an issue all right, and will be
as long as a few of the more
rabid antis can make it so. But
we doubt if the rank and file
will follow such a leadership.
