The death of Captain J H; Wordcn
noted aviator which occurred at Vock
ory Station near Dallas Saturday is
a fresh proof of the often-repeated
truth that fancy flying menns suro
death some time. Of course there
will alwnya bo those who will tako the
risk of losing their life for tho famo
ahd money that fancy flying com-
mands but it docs not lesson the re
Bponsibility of tho public to demand
sane action while men aro in the air.
Speaker Clark is to be or has been
invited to bo permanent chairman of
tho coming Democratic National Con-
vention. Wo hope that ho will accept
tho honor for Mr. Clark is truly a
great man. Tho Speaker moro than
nnyiiody else knows how tho nomina'
tlon of Mr Wilson came about at Bal
timore and while ho will ncvor for
givo Mr Bryan for tho fight ho made
for tho President the Invitation to bo
chnlrznah of tho second convention to
nominate Mr. Wilson will perhaps help
to euro the woun.i that ana hurt bo
much tho past four years.

What They Learned.
Mrs. Slocomb H Mr. HuffCr a kind
"Texas Is for Wilson without oppo
slUon." Of courso it is. Nobody
doubted that fact before or after the
precmt conventions which were held
over the State Saturday. Tho fight In
Texas is hot over Wilson but over tho
honor of voting Texas for tho re-nora-lnatlon
of tho President nt St. Louis.
Some think that Govornor Ferguson
should head tho delegation while oth-
ers feel that tho honor should go to
a private citizen. So long as Texas
is strong m tno ranks or tho Wilson
column and peal Wilson men aro sent
to tho St. Louis convention Tho Re
porter is not golnjr to mauo much fusa
about who heads tho delegation nor
about who id Blent along with the head
of tho delegation.
People often ask where tho monoy

gees. Tho mayor's budget which waa
published in Tho Reporter Sunday nn-
swercd that question to the uttormost
Every dollar to be spent during tho
coming year was given in tho estimate.
If you did not read it and arc inter-
ested In tho finances of Abilene get
your Sunday Reporter of May 7th and
read the budget. Tho estlmato called
for the usual expenditure of funds for
tho maintenance of tho public schools.
The sum Is not sufficient for the needs
of tho HChocis and since an ndequato
sum can be secured only through n
raiso In the tax for school purposes
or a raise in tho valuation of the city
the subject is ouo that tho people
should carefully consider at once. If
tho tax rate Is to he raised an elec-
tion should be ordered soon. Ablleno
public schools MUST NOT SUFFER.
