AUSTIN, Tex., Jan. 4.—"I shall
neither enter any elimination primary

not recognise the rl*ht of Mr. Thomas
to issue any such challenge " That
was. lieutenant Governor Will H.,
Mayes' comment on the statement,of
Cullen F. Thomas given ouf at Dallas
yesterday in which he challenged Mr.
Mayes and W. P. Lane to withdraw
from the race for governor or for all
three to submit their candidacy to
a prohibition primary. The Lieuten-
ant governor has been in Austin sev-
eral days and says that he Is much
pleased with the progress so far made
by him In bis campaign for the demo-
cratic nomination for governor.
Mr. Lane is out of the city, being
on a tour of Inspection of the state
farms damaged by the recent floods.
He will not return to Austin untU
about the middle of this week. His
friends here express the opinion that
he will disregard Mr. Thomas' chal-
lenge. Mr. Lane declined to enter
the elimination meeting held by some
of the prohibitionists last fall, and
at that time, and since then, he has
announced that he was In the race to
stay; that he considered himself the
logical prohibitionist candidate and
that he was making the race subject
to the action of the people of Texas
and would not be controlled by any
boss or set of bosses.

A Rebuke t
Rejoice in the F
By B. H.
Ever and anon self-appointed critics
rise up and point out just what Is the
matter with the churches. The
churches, they always somehow as-
sure us, are in a moribund condition;
dead or dying, and critics feel called
on to diagnose the case and prescribe
to the votaries of religion the most
resigned and beautiful way to fade
| out of existence.
I am not a member of any church;
I certainly hold no commission to de-
fend the churches, and I find myself
sometimes In the ranks of their critics,
but much of the current criticism of
the churches is so naively puerile, so
smugly complacent that It has no real
claim on the attention of any but
those who love unconscious comedy.
Sifted down to its last analysis the
main thing that is the matter with the
churches Is that there are a lot of the
same kind of people in the churches
and that they behave Inside of the
churches Just as they do outside of the
churches; that Is to say, they are of-
ten small-souled, stingy, narrow-
minded, malicious, gossipy, tattling
and given to backrbitlng, and occa-
sionally are vicious and criminal.
So long as the church Is the haven
of respectability it can not be avoided
that many wiy seek Its shelter who
need the cloak of respectability. So
long as it teaches the doctrines of
honesty and purity It Is certain that
some who are neither honest nor pure
will try to find In It covert and dis-
guise. So long as It holds open a door
of hope to the weak and the erring
and the sinful, It Is sure that some of
the feeble will stumble even after they
have crossed the threshold.
The churches have all-the defeats
that are necessarily due to the faci
that they ure composed of poor, wi "
mortals. Vanity will flaunt
rogance will exhibit itselLpaiffer will
blaze, and politics Mw^wlre-pulUng
will make thems^ras manifest in the
"gbvernnHjMfafid affairs of the church-
es, while Ignorance will bear Us usual
fruit In the churches as well as out-
side of the churches.
But comhion, ordinary fairness In
Judging will show these other Import-
ant things to be true.

narrow but broad.

BEAUMONT, Texas, Jaif. 4.—Ten
thousand dollars a year is saved to
Beaumont merchants through their
refusal to advertise in anything other
than bona fide newspapers regularly
admitted to the malls.
* The estimate is made by Sam S.
Solinsky, secretary of the Retail Mer-
chants' association, and be declares
it Is a conservative one.
The subject was launched by the
calling of a gentleman who was work-
ing on an advertising proposition, and
who had been referred to Secretary
Solinsky by merchants on whom he
The particular plan or scheme pre
sented by the caller was not with-
out merit when viewed from the
standpoint of charity, but Its adver-
tising value was, at least, open to
question. However, Mr.—Kolinsky Is
not called on to pass on the merits
of any proposition that mav be pre-
sented to him, for the policy of the
Retail Merchants' association is to re-
frain from advertising in anything
Some of those who call on Mr. So-
linsky and are politely but firmly told
of the fixed policy of the association
are considerably peeved, but the most
of the callers ate brought to see the
thing in the proper light
'Before the association entered on
this policy," said Mr. Solinsky, "hard-
ly a day passed In which Beaumont
merchants were not Called on to pass
on some kind of advertising scheme.
These schemes -included every kind of
device Imaginable. Some of them

the prospective advertiser that they
were the real article for getting his
business before the public.
"Canvassers for those propositions
were always ready with a line of talk
calculated to get the grapes, and in
most instances they went away "with
the fruit. While many of the schemes
were worked out with no other
thought than to get the money, oth-
ers, on the surface, appeared to have

A canvasser would come In with" an
advertising scheme to raise money
for discarded mothers-in-law or some
other equally worthy undertaking,
and cite the fact that 'Mr. Jones, one
of our leading merchants, has taken
a space; likewise Messrs. Smith and
Brown, and of course, Mr. E. Z. Mark
can not afford to let his neighbors
outdo him in generosity.'
"Most of the merchants fell for that
line of talk, and within a year, ac-
cording to my estimates, the mer-
chants of Beaumont expended |10,000
on advertising schemes, and most of
it was thrown away.
"Now, when a merchant wants to
give to charity he mills his check di-
rect to the place whel-e it should go,
and It is 100 per cent charity, Instead
of about 15 per cent charity and 85
per cent for alleged advertising."
Mr. Solinsky says members of the
association are delighted with the
way the new plan works; that they
simply refer the solicitor to the sec-
retary of the association, and the sec-
were put out on a simple charity bas- retary does the rest.
