The Co-Operator and the Case
County Sun both one year for
Marett & Sheftiold'a new Hue
of springs pants have arrived*
as Baileyismand Anti-Baileyism,
for the reason that though I
voted for Mr. Bailey (shame oii
me) in the primary I am
denied the right by a ruling and
edict of the Democratic Commit-
tee of Texas to say whether or
not I approve of his course in
his capacity as United States
Senator, Unless I pledge myself
to support the nominees of the
party from President to Consta-
ble. Now I don't say that no
honest patriotic selfreepectirig
man cfin do this, we have differ-
ent view points, but as for me I
can not do it. No one knows
who the nominees will be, while
it looks now as if Mr. Bryan , will
be the nominee for President,
it may be that it will be Tom
Taggart, chairman of the Na-
tional Democratic Executive
Committee, or Bill Sheeham, a
member of said committee, the
manager of many allied trusts
including the Standard Oil, or
August Belmont, the American
agent of the British Banking in-
terests, and anothef one of your
And who knows what tlie
platform will be? Cortahtly it j
will not be against the National
Banking System as all except)
one democrat in Congress voted
for their recharter in 15)01. It,
will not reduce the tar riff unless
upon raw material, as the Wilson
Bill. It declared through Alton B
Parker, last campaign, that the
Gold Standard was irrevocably
fixed. A than from my view point
that can make the pledge requir-
ed has a fiexable conscience, or
I is a political acrobat and has
practiced on a political gymna-
sium or is partisan blind.
The question at first was
whether Senator Bailey had acted
in good faith with the people,
Whether he had done anything to
disqualify him as the peoples ser-
vant in tho U. S. Senate (and
| as he dont represent the people
at large, but only democrats
that never did nor never will
scratch a ticket, therefore they
alone must decide) but bo it said
to the shame of most engaged in
this controversy, it has sunken
into the cesspool of personal
abuse, and I think Senator Bai-
ley is in the main chargeable
with conditiou through his ac-
tions and speech at Austin. Such
eppethets as he applied to his
accusers at Austin were to say
the least unbecoming any gentle-
man, and to my mind went for
to establish his guilt.
I would like to undo my vote
in the primary, but as a consci-
entious voter I cant do it. I have
never cast but two votes that I
am ashamed of, they were for
J. W. Bailey for Senator and M.
M. Brooks for govenor. Brooks
assertion as to Hon. (Cycloije)
Davis,- to put it mildly, was very
unbecoming, and was denounced
as false by more than a hundred
of Davis' neighbors. Hcftv the
mighty are fallen! They seem to
me to be pretty much in the
plight that Milton ascribes to
taken up the cry and says "some
think that Cyclone Davis sold
1 out the Populist party. Now if
now j this was a fact tha democra tic
1 party was the purchaser and the
bribe-giver is as bad or worse
than the bribe-taker, so you are
in your own slime by yotir own
Now the fact is, and all that
had their ears and eyes open
know it, that the democrats stole
the populists out. Are jou not
conversent with the treachery of
your National Committee at St.
Louis in 189G. Mr. McKinley
would never been president neitn-
er would Mr. Roosevelt now be
president had it not been for
that treachery, but W J. Bryan
and Thos. E. Watson would
have been president and vice
president. The South ar.d West
would have been united as should
The democratic (?) pni ty sung
its funeral dirge at St. Louis in
the year 1890 A. D. It has writ-
ten its own eppitaple Treachery.
It was oiice our pride, our hope,
our anchor and we are sad and
sorrowful over ifs demise. Its
only hope of resereotion to life is
in its Spirit Populism.
1 will not mention the acts of
theft, committed by your party
in order to crush out the Popu-
lists in (.'ass county, in Texas, all
over the South; those things only
cull to mind the bitter bast that
we have tried, and would like to
1 would only sugjest that the
streets of ancient Jerusalem were
kept clean by every man sweep-
ing before his own door.
Will the people of Texas iti-
dorse what is known as Bailey-
ism? This is the most momen-
tous question that ever come up
in Texas as I see it. I believe
they will with the restrictions in
the primary. 1 dont believe there
is vitality enough in the party
to cleanse its self of plutocratic
microbism, not that the majori-
ty are not honest, but they are
party blind, and given too much
to hero or man .worship.
As stated above, although I
voted for Mr. Bailey and feel that
I did wrong, I am not permitted
to undo that wrong unless I
commit another wrong, I there-
fore, now and for ever, declare
my self out of the party unless it
shall cleanse itself of its point iom
I may have the "Neuvas tlienia"
but. have'nt as bad a case as the
so called Democratic party.

called "Baileyism" te to
those whom we elect to office w
pretend to serve "us and those
whose interests are inimical o
ours while in office. The.
day of May next has been
apart as political washday,
tlie principal garment to he
washed is Senator Baileys Sena-
torial Rohe, which has by his
unwarranted unprecedented and
inexcusable entanglement witii
the Standard oil and other pre-
datory monopolies become mi
besmearched speckled an spotted
that it resembles a litfle darkies
apron in blackberry lime, and.be
asks the voters of Texas to
their ballots* wash it white a«

gifts and loans from those pre-
datory vampire corporations,
amountingin the aggregate to
iiuadreds of thousands of dollars,
and, as if to add insult to inyuty
brazenly tells you he will con-
tinue to do the same. He slyly
led those corporate freebooters
around to the back door and
let them into our State agfrtn,
regardless of the fact that oar
faithful Atty General and courts,
had outlawed and driven thetn
from our borders. If the people
of Texas Indorse his course and
contention they will thereby eru-
cify the teachings of the patriots
and statesmen we have • so long
revered, and crusadc for plundeif
Put none but Patriots on Guard.
Fellew citizens, friends and
neighbors: Having shared my
fate with you hi every vicisitude
of life for more than half a centu-
ry, and feeffng an abiding inter-
est in whatever pertains to the
welfare of the people, I feel con-
strained to Jay a sidethedrudge-
ries of a. plowmans task long
enough to sound a few notes Of
warning against the baneful in-
fluences lurking behind what is
will inevitably follo\¥. Listen to
the words of the revered Wash-
ington "Beware of pretended
friends who iti the name of Dem-
ocracy seek to destroy your lib-
erties, under the guise of patri-
otism." To the the words ot
the lamented Lincoln "I bidthtJ
laboring people beware of cor-
porate power," and the words of
the matchless Webster, "Liberty
connot long endure where the
tendency of legislation is to
concentrate all the wealth in the
hands of the few." Contrast Mr.
Bailey's record with these warn-
ings, and you can clearly see
that you cannot atford to touch
his besmearched garment with a
forty foot pole, not if you know
which side of your bread is but-
tered. The above warnings are
against the very fellows Mr.
Bailey has been making his
deals with, and against whom he
has rarely if ever lifted a finger
or raised his voice. He is now
jantering around over Texas
pleading with the voters to sarve
nim from his sins. But. my
countrymen, I conjure you to
not lose sight of the target, ie>
(injustice) W indjatnbi ng is cheap#
and vituperation and abuse is
not argument, nor are thev
worth anything to buy bread,
facts and resul ts are what counts,-
keep your eye on the target (In-
justice) When the devil was
sick, the devil a monk wotfld be,
but when the dev'il was well, well
he wash,t a monk by a jug full.
Let no guilty mart escapie. "Put
none but patriots on guard." "By,
their fruits ye shall know them-
"Let justice be done though the
Heavens fall" "better that one
member should perish, than the
whole body" well thats my stunt
I'll go back to cutting sprouts.
But friehds, be sure you keep
ysur eye on the target (injustkm)
think of the millions fleaced front!

leys faithless conduct.'then vote-
