Hon. Lee J. Rountree, should he

THBSatado 'Champion says:
inslnessis still flush on a pat
and, but we pass on the present
deal.".' r The. Tribune is ever
pleased.' to ,know the business
CQHilitions' of. its neighbors, but
oils is;language that even an old
mertpiayer cannot interpret.
Hon. J. F. Taulbee, of George-
town, has announced as a candi-
date for floater from the counties
of Williamson and Burnet. This
action of Mr. Taulbee is to be
regretted. There was a general
understanding that Burnet coun-
ty was to name the floater, and
any violation thereof by William-
son county would almost inevit-
ably result in the permanent
alienation of Burnet county.
Hence, it is not likely that Mr.-
Taulbee will receive any large
vote in Williamson, his home
county. He should reconsider
hiH action and withdraw from the
race. Jae cannot possibly re-
ceive the nomination. He can
only jeopardize a chance for fut-
ure preferment by his own ped
pie and probably alienate to Bome
extent the good will of Burnet
county people. The Tribune
would not willingly endeavor to
place any obstruction in tho way
of any proper or prudent aspira
tions or Mr. Taulbee, but m -this
instance it is fully persuaded that
he has made a mistake, and a
sad mistake, for ho cannot carry
Williamson county in the prima-
ries on May 10.
EprroR)M&Annaly, of the Cam-
eron HeraM,' seems disposed to
lamWMfcsfljff&ra that opposed his
nomUftiK'eThe thing, and the
l&thafc defeated him was
fion with the so-called
BjBill." If he still thinks
. kfs action in that matter was
g,-nt and merritorious, he should
rap the mantle of an approving
conspienco about mm and, in the
language of the immortal Clay,
say: "I would rather be right
There is a good deal of talk
about candidates before the pri-
u mariea running as independents
in the event that they should not
"get tho nomination. To put a
quietus on this scheme every
candidate should obligate him-
selFto abide by the decision of
thev primaries before they are
held, and in case he will not so
obligate? himself , his name should
not be placed on tho ticket.
v Let ''tricksters and double-dealers
be marked before hand.
If a a confederate record is to
be aiar to a man's holding of-
fice from now on, why not make
a confederate record a bar to
voting? Bell County Democrat.
The Demoorat is not consistent
in its views on the above. The
Tribune does not think a con-
federate record should bar a man
from holding office, but it does
think a man seeking office should
have other qualifications than a
confederate record. The time
has come when men must have
all the qualifications necessary
for holding an office of trust, and
if he happens tobe a confederate
veteran, all gooa enough. An
honored Uonteaerate record is a
beautiful crown on competency,
but it can not substitute that
O, Consistency Thou Art a Jewel
Mr. Thomas' supporters started
out in the present contest for the
nomination to Congress, contend-
ing Jhat the Waters-Pierce Oil
case was the principal, if not the
sole issue. Let's consider their
candidates' actions in this matter
and see where they stand.
Two years ago Mr. Henry was
a candidate for the Democratic
nomination for Congress with
Tom Henderson from Milam
county as his opponent. On the
day of the primaries in McLennan
county, Mr. Thomas knew what
he afterwards told and is telling
now concerning Mr. Henry's con-
nection with the aforesaid oil case.
He was then a voter. Toda'
he is a partisan' in his own behal:
With full knowledge of Mr.
Henry's actions and proposals in
that case, he enters the Democra-
tic primaries and votes for Mr.
Henry, thereby assisting the
Democrats of the district in nam-
ing him as our standard bearer.
He now comes into our county, a
partisan in his own behalf and oc-
cupies about an hour of his time
urging the voters of Bell county
to condemn Mr. Henry for some-
thing that he knew, and by his
The "main" issue was presented
to Mr. Thomas and he met it by
voting for Henry at the primary.
How will you meet it?
The Salado Champion, Loe
Mason editor, is on our exchange
table. It is a neat publication
and would be a credit to a much
larger town than Salado. The
Tribune wishes tho Champion and
its brilliant young editor the suc-
cess they so richly deserve.

Sun supports Mr. Taulbee
floater because Mr. Pearson, of
Burnet', has not placed his an-

win on such principles.
Supt. D. L. Hamilton, of the
Georgetown Public schools, was
here last Saturday looking after
his chances for County School
Superintendent. It was his first
visit to Bartlett and ho was very
