"I STAND ON BILL POTNDEXTER'S
SIDE." HE DECLARES IN HIS
SPEECH AT CHICO.
HE TALKS US TO FRIENDS
His Attitude Is One of Confidence
That His Friends Will Be United

(By Georgo Waverley Brtgg-s.)
CHICO, Tex., July 9.—Senator palley's
additional contribution to the political
situation within the gubernatorial cam-
paign which his appearance on the ©tump
la rapidly forming, wns largely Influen-
tial, but nevertheless plain and potent.
T stand, said he, addressing the crowd
here today, "like most of you stand on
the right side, which la another way of
saying that 1 stand on Bill Poindextor's
The crowd apparently understood his
meaning. It cheered successively the ut-
terance of each co-ordinate part of this
announcement and manifestly rejoiced
In the significance which his pauses con-
veyed. The speaker addressed his audi-
ence as a gathering composed chiefly of
IS AMONG HIS FRIENDS.
"I feel not so much as a Senator return-
ing to his constituents," he smiled, "as
a neighbor coming among his friends."
From time to time he referred to the
presence of men not his friends, but
he emphasized their meager numbers.
He mentioned them as a class when the
trend of his discouso would lead to allus-
ions to the stormy career over the sea
of Texas politics. To Itfm certainly, by
tlie attitude he exhibited, the most of the
crowd constituted his friends. To them
he spoke. They were his audience. When
he sought to distinguish between friend
and foe to confer an encomium or to
pay a tribute he unequivocally addressed
himself to "the most of you ' who com-
prised his friends and composed his
audience—the audience which by word
and manner lie took into his confidence.
For them he Invoked the amenities which
prevail between friend and friend. It
was obvious that only "the most of you,"
he spoke as "a neighbor among friends."
Consequently his espousal of "the right
side" was sufficient in its directness to
define for his audience tw^ catagories of
candidates. In the l'irst—"on The right
side"—he placed Mr. Poindexter and ac-
knowledged his allegiance to hira; to
the second, by implication he consigned
Messrs. Davidson, Johnson, yea and Mr.
Colquitt, and by Inference If not by
statement, he took his stand against
Mindful of the presence of his friends
and conscious of the expectant interest
with which they awaited the utterance of
a word of counsel, he strengthened the
continuing bond of union between them
by championing the candidate of their
choice "liko most of you" lie declalmud
significantly, "I stand on the right side,"
and the answering echoes of applau.se
confirmed the touching of a responsive
chord. Even the suspicion of dictation
"JOE IS WITH US."
"He is with us," some of the crowd
j. remarked, and others nodded their heads
affirmatively. That seemed to be the
idea uppermost—"Joe is with us."
The impression was not necessarily
gathered that Mr. Bailey sought to urge
his supporters'to vote for Mr. Poindexter
because the Cleburne lawyer Is Mr.
Bailey's friend; but perhaps more potent
than a direct appeal was the considerate,
but nevertheless, Ingenious course which
lie so gracefully pursued, implying noth-
ing of domination but much of the com-

Opportunity to Plunder
WINFIELD, Kan., July P.- Asserting
that the fight of the Progressives had
only just begun, United States Senator
Joseph L. Bristow of Salina this after-
noon delivered his first public utterance
since Saturday last, when, with Represen-
tatives Murdock and Madison, also In-
surgents, he journeyed to Oyster Bay
and held a three hours' conference with
"The House Progressives," the Senator
said, "have made great progress. They
have practically overthrown the dominion
of Cannon and the coterie of men who
surround him, but the great work is but
Senator Bristow's speech was delivered
at the VVinfield Chautauqua.
He analyzed the tariff and sketched the
work of the Progressive Republicans in
amending the railroad bill.
The country had never faced problems
more perplexing. The fundamental ques-
tion to be determined, he asserted, was
whether this government be administered
In the Interest of the average man or
for the benefit of special privilege.
MONOPOLY SEEKS PLUNDER.
"The gigantic monopolies of this day,"
he said, "have representatives In the
halls of Congress whose sole purpose Is
to protect their Interest and to keep open
the opportunity they now have to plunder
the American public. This was forcibly
demonstrated In the tariff fight a year
"The Republican party In Its National
convention declared for a revision of the
tariff, maintaining the principle of pro-
tection and further stated that duties
should be based upon the difference in
the cost of production at home and
abroad plus a reasonable profit to the
"On that platform the party won the
fight and I believe nine-tenths of the Re-
publicans throughout the land expected
the pledgo to be carried out in good faith.
This, I believe, v^uld have been done
had It not been for the perfidy and self-
ishness of certain designing legislators
who were more desirous of favoring
special interests than of promoting the
welfare of the people.
"Under the leadership of these men,
Instead of revising the tariff as was
promised, duties were fixed, not with a
view of protecting legitimate American
Industries or of securing revenue for the
Government, but for the sole purpose of
promoting the financial interests of cer-
tain Individuals or concerns.
GREAT WORK ONLY BEGUN.
"Thi great work before us ils but fairly
begun. This year we had to fight us
hurd to hold what had been secured In
years past as wu did to get additional
legislation. To hold what we now have
and secure theso other necessary pro-
visions Is the fight of the future. It can-
not be won without the determined sup-
port of the people.
"Our hope is In the intelligent and
patriotic purpose of the people them-
selves. The combined influences of crim-
inal selfishness and greed are against us.
Their means are unlimited, but if tho
people will select as their representatives
In Congress men with not only the Incli-
nation but tho courage to stand against
the powers of greed and evil, right will
triumph, and as a Republican I want It
to triumph under the banner of the old

"I shall have no visitors until Governor

The colonel spent most of the day try-
ing to make some headway with the piles
of letters that await his attention. De-
spite the heat he stuck to his work until
late in the afternoon, when he stopped for
a game of tennis.
There were letters asking aid, begging
advice and volunteering it. So many of
them were invitations to make speeches
that If he were to accept them all the
former President would have to keep talk-
ing steadily for a large part of the re-
mainder of his life.
The colonel consented this afternoon to
give a little information about his son
Rermlt's departure for Europe today,
which caused so many conjectures. Ker-
mlt, he snld, was sailing In accordnnce
with a plan made long ago to spend as
much of the summer as possible In study-
ing at Paris. The plan had been made
before Kermlt and his father left for
Africa, and Kcrmit probably would not
have returned to this country until Inter
had not his brother, Theodore, cabled a
request that he net as best man at Theo-
dore's wedding to Miss Alexander.

was officially announced late tonight
that Brooklns reached a height of
At that height his gasoline gave out
and his engine stopped when he had
come down to 6800 feet, compelling
him to glide to the ground.
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., July 9.—Wal-
ter Brooking driving a Wright biplane,
reached an altitude calculated at 6000
feet over the ocean this evening and
broke all existing world's record® for

servations for irlangnlation, will he given
The barograph altitude recording in-
strument carried on the machine showed
an altitude of 6100 feet. Officials using
an altitude gauge on the ground gave
the height as GG80 feet, and it is believed
that the final official figures will show
an altitude somewhere between the two.
By his feat today Brooklns wins the
U><M) prize offered by the Atlantic City
Aero Club for breaking the world s rec-
ord, unless a higher altitude Is reached
before the end of the present meet.
IS IN AIR AN HOUR.
Brooklns spent exactly 1:02:.T..15 in the
air, according to the official timing of
Chairman Henry M. Neely and Recorder
Augustus Post of the contest committee
of the National Council of the Aero Club
About fifty-seven minutes of this time
was used In the circling ascent, the rush
of over a mile to the ground consuming
less than seven minutes.
Fear that Brooklns at his highest point
had not crossed the line of vision of the
expert engineers in charge of securing
his height by triangulation, startled of-
ficials and spectators until it was dis-
covered that the failure to secure a rec-
ord of his crossing the imaginary line on
which hie record will bo based was on
two swings at a much lower altitude than
at the final highest point.
Brooklns declined to receive callers
after his flight and rested for ten min-
utes before he left for his hotel In an
automobile. He again went into seclu-
sion after stating that he found the air
currents steady at his highest altitude
and that he turned toward the earth
when his aneroid barometers showed an
altitude of more than 6000 feet.
Glenn H. Curtiss mudej several short
flights whllo Brooklns was preparing to
ascend for Ills final trial, but descended
without attempting any altitude flight or
speed record over the fifty-mile course
which he expects to cover tomorrow.
Managers of the meet have commun-
cated with the Vf'rlght brothers asking
for permission for Brookins to fly tomor-
row and hope to have early morning
flights despite the known objection of

More light on the attitude of Mexico In

terday from Senor de hi Ilarra, the Mexican
ambassador to Washington. ac«- irdlng to
advices from the American capital.
"The statement reported to have been
made by the State Department recently
regarding I lie friendship that Inspired the
last conference between It and the Mexican
government on the situation in Nicaragua,"
said the ambassador. "Is entirely true. The
meetings I had with Secretary Knox and

such feelings, the Mexican government does
not wish ♦< take any Initiative In the set-

ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., July 9 Wal-

the world's altitude record this evening
when ho attained a height of 6175 feet.
He used his last drop of gasoline in
his highest altitude and was still climb-
ing when his engine missed explosions.
The daring aviator brought his machine
back to level to get the last drop of fuel
of the storage tank to reach the line
of vision of the engineers on the beach.
Reaching the imaginary line, Brooklns
started to glide to earth and his engine
stopped entirely when he was at 5600 feet
and still over the ocean. His cycling
glide to the beach, which the crowd be-
lieved to he a bit of fancy flying, was
done to save himself from diving Into
Brookins was ready to collapse when
he reached the ground and did not tell
of his plight In the air until midnight,
after he had partly recovered.
Officials at midnight gave 6175 feet as
the exact height of the flight from the
calculations of the engineering experts.
The barograph record Is 6300 feet, leaving
but twenty-five feet difference. It Is ex-
pected that the record will stand without

Story of His Expulsion From the Sen-

Comments on His Associates
and Their Char-
To five hundred peoplo gathered on
Alamo Plaza Saturday night fifty yards
from the Alamo, H. Bascom Thomas of
Sulphur Springs, "the expelled Senator,"
candidate for Lieutenant Governor, told
of his "crucifixion" by the Thirty-first
S< nate—"not," he said, "between two
thieves, but among possibly a dozen";
recounted the evils of the lobby and made
vehement and promiscuous charges; sar-
castically alluded to "the honesty and in-
tegrity of the Senate"; registered stinging
rebukes against certain members of the
Senate, and referred In the harshest terms
to Lieutenant Governor A. B. Davidson,
candidate for re-election.
Mr. Thomas was In competition with
two or three street religious bands. The
shrill notes of a cornet pierced the can-
didate's words frequently, and occasion-
ally above nls voice could be heard the
shouts and appeals of the rival speakers
across the plaza. But the former Senator
held his crowd with ease. He talked ail
hour and three-quarters and was only

Some thrift hundred people were gath-

the candidate was to speak at 8:30 o'clock,
the hour set. Mr. Thomas Is not very
well acquainted in Han Antonio personal-
ly. and looked aborut for someone to in-
ttoduce him. in/a moment he found an
elderly man who said he would introduce
him. W. \\\ Buchanan, State organizer
lor the Socialist party, performed the
friendly office. "He Is a so-called •un-
desirable, ' said Mr. Buchanan; "he was
kicked out of that mugwump Legislature.
He is a Democrat and candidate for Lieu-
tenant Governor. '

The crowd applauded the speaker. Mr.
Thomas entered at once into a discussion

tics platform Though a prohibitionist
Of the most decided sort, he did not once
mention prohibition. No Issue was dis-
cussed other than ills own "issue."
