If Democrats want to head their
ticket with a sure enough winn<ir
they should not pass up Govern-
or Harmon. His record in Ohio
is proof conclusive that he is a
demoralizing element to the Re-
publicans. From the Battoy
It appears that Harmon is a
•tronger man politically than Bill
Tafit in Ohio. Taft's own town
wenit Democratic. Now get'your
fielders back, for Harmon will
knock a home run if he is per-
mitted to go <t/o the bat in 1912.

cs generally are said to be

than aav other man the Demo-
crats could namo for president.

Governor Hsmon'n tlieory of
government is simple. He de-
al-arcs his plat form as follows:
"Our government should faith-
fully represent, economy, thrift,

ments." A better platform in
three lines would be hard to
write, however great tlie states-

afttions.—From The Brenham
The special dispatch printed in
a Stale paper, stating tha^ Col-

committeeman, had pledged the
vote of Texas to Governor Har-
mon, has been denied by Colonel
Johnston himself, bis paper, the
Post, and by Colonel I. M. Stan-
difer, who was with him in Wash
ington. We have been patiently
waiting for those papers which
printed the dispatch and com-
mented on the matter with so
much feeling, to give space to ilie
several denials... So far our wait,
has been in vain. After circulat-
ing the report so assiduously, per
