Ed. R. Kone of State Department of
Agriculture Hays Tesa* III in
Line For Bumper Crop.
Judge Ed. It. Kone, representing
tho state department of agriculture,
was In Temple Wednesday. He was
scheduled to hold a farmers' Insti-
tute at 2:30 but the crowd showing
up was hardly sufficient ttt Justify
tho effort, so tho meeting was aban-
doned. Judge Kone, however, will
meet with the farmers of the Troy
section Thursday afternoon at 2:30
and hold an institute there.
He expressed himself as well pleased
with the present crop prospects over
the state and said that he expected
a banner year In an agricultural
way. There Is nothing short of a
calamity, he said, that conld prevent
an extra good cotton crop and the
boll worm was suggested as the niost
"Inasmuch, however," he con-
tinued, "as the boll worm prospers
only In shady weather, we may get
by without any particular damage
In that line. If the weather is fa-
vorable, you may look for a good
crop yield—and with good prices—
and Bell county Is making as good
or better showing as any other sec-
tion of tho state."
Judge Kone was formerly state
commissioner of agriculture.

seating of the Ferguson delegations.
McDonald wag given liberal applause.
N. G. Morris who presented the minor-
ity report defended his position in a
speech attacking the liquor truffle, and
alleging that the "liquor Interests are
trying to run things.'' The applause
at the close of the Morris address was
scattered. E. A. Berry continued the
discussion for the minority report. He
charged the Ferguson forces with "at-
tempting to ileal these county delega-
tions." Berry drew a demonstration
when he declared in closing that the
"supreme test of democracy was to
■eat a delegation,'' The applause
continued fully two minutes. Berry
divided'his time with F. F. Hllli known
as a strong supporter of prohibition.
Mr. Hill caused an uproar when he

twenty, named in the July 22 primary,
be duty ratified. The operation re-
quired less than a minute.

one members of the state executive

Auditorium, Houston, Tex., Au8- 9.
—The second day's session of the state
democratic convention was called to
order by Chairman Decker at 10:32
o'clock. The delegates were slow in
getting the business of the convention
moving. The report of the creden-
tials committee, recommended the
seating of the five so-called Ferguson
delegations from contesting counties.
A minority report was filed by N. G.
Morris, asking the seating of the reg-
ularly elected delegates from Bell,
Hays and Hardin counties. This was
the third time this question was
brought up. Irregularities In the se-
lection of the seated delegates was
charged in the minority statements.

Auditorium, Houston, Tex., Aug. 9.
—The platform of the democratic
party as reported by the committee
on platform anil resolutions provides
for the general endorsement ef the
national democratic administration
and a specific endorsement of Pres-
ident Wilson's Mexican policy. Gov-
ernor Ferguson also was given both
genera] and special endorsement.
Submission or prohibtion were not
The plank relative the Mexican
policy is as follows:
"In order that those living In
states remote from Texas may know
the real feelings of the citizens of
Texas, upon whose ears the tocsin
of war has sounded; upon whose
ears the hoof beat of the cavalry
horse has fallen; In whose ears the
crack of the rifle and the shout of
the American soldier has rung in
the controversies w^th Mexico, we,
the democrats of Texas, are glad of
an opportunity to openly and unani-
mously endorse the Mexican policy
of X'resident Wilson and we sincere-
ly approve the caution, the wisdom
and the patriotism, which he has
exercised In dealing with the trying
and troublesome conditions that have
sorely taxed his patience in the con-
duct of our international and do-
mestic relations with Mexico."
Governor Ferguson's administra-
tion was hailed in the platform as
"the beginning of an era of con-
structive and remedial legislation."

Milk Wagon Drivers Strike.
St. Louis, Mo., Aug. 9.—Striking
milk wagon drivers this afternoon
began to notify the drivers of gro-
cery nnd bakery wagons that they
should not haul milk from the dairies
to be sold at retail by neighborhood
stores and bakeries.
This policy was adopted by strikers
after they came to the conclusion
that the grocers and bakers were
getting in milk and cream in stich
quantities for retail so as to render
the strike worthless.
The drivers were pursuaded to
dump the loads Into alleys.
Early this morning hundreds of
men, women and children had to
go to the dairies and the distributing
depots to get ths supplies of milk
that usually are left on door steps.
