'Phone No. 8v.
A Lumber of prominent politicians
from different parts of the btate met in
Dallas last Satmday for tbe purpose of
holding a conference on the Willacy bill.
Those present at this conference, accord-
ing to the newspaper reports, were
Senators Willacy of Port!ind; Staf-
ford of Silreota, Paulusof Hullettsville;
Walter Q. Gresbam of Galveston;
Messrs. <"abel, Slmw, Pad^et and Hud
son. of Dallas; Rice, Richardson and
Ikard of Houston; Bryan of Elpaso;
Pendleton of Bel Ion: Onioo of San An-
tynlo; Littlefield of Austin; Lockett of
Texarknnn; Lacey of Palestine; Daniel
of Lufkin; Perry of Hamilton; Davis of
Ellis; Morgan of Hunt; t'ate of Wood;
J-tradley ot Denton and Dills of Slier
One member of the conl'eientJ assert-
ed tnat the recent decision 01 the conn
of criminal appeals did not cover all
points that the friends of the Willacy
Even though the court decision did
not cover everything, however it w
safer to have the Willacy idea stated
clearly in statutory enactment tbau to
depend on the uncertainty of jonrts;
another bench, on a future case, might
deolde differently from what the present
body did on Wednesday last on the enst
from Cooke county.
On this line of reasoning, it is learned
the conference concluded to go into the
coming legislative campaign on the af
firmative of tbe Willacy idea.
It was learned after adjournment to-
night that it was decided to make a
(traight open fiijht within the Demo
cratic party for legislation along the
lines of the Willacy bill, that failed in
the last legislature. The proposition to
make a still hunt campaign for the con
trol of the legislature was overwhelming
ly defeated, and the proposition to fight
nut the issue "in the open" had only two
I It was also learned that another meet
icg is to be neld in Dallas two weeks
from now, at which a plan of campaign
will be fully arranged. It is more than
probable that ac that meeting a lar^e
state convention will be called to pu
the Campaign within the Democratic
party fully np to the flout, with com
mittees, speakers and workers fully
And so the gauntlet is thrown down
to the local optionists of Texas. Thi
r*al issue is, "Shall the local option law
of Texas remain in its present stite of
efficiency, or shall it be practically
abolished in that part which now per
rnits counties as a whole, by county
election, to pass and enforce it V—for the
latter is the effect of what the whiskey
ring and its fca-kers seek to have the
next legislature of Texas to do, and
they are now organizing to elect meu to
tbe legislature to accomplish that pur-
pose. They purpose to mask this issue
under the specious, 'out fallacious, plea
of equalizing certain previsions of tbe
law, when, in truth what they propose
and what they want to do, instead oi
equalizing as they call it, would utterly
nullify and destroy the law so that a
u juuty as a whole could not pass and
enforce it if there were in that county
a precinct, city or town having an
"anti" major ty. because as soou as
the county voted the law, such precinct,
city or town i onld by election, repeal
it within its lirni ,s and the til-u county
as such, would no longer have local op-
tion. The salooult.es hive been ener-
getic and resourceful in the tactics
they have used In their attempt to stiin
the tide of loaal option sentiment thit is
establishing th>. law iu the majority of
oonnties in this ^reat state, but a!t to
little avail. They have tried literature;
they have tried oratory and debate;
they have tried money; they baye tried
politicians and political influence; they
have tried injunctions aud courts and
many other methods, an 1 notwithstand-
ing all this, the sentiment that the 8a-
Ix>n most go, grows stronger aud more
popular iu the minds of the people ev-
ery day. Aud now they have deter
mined to elect a legi-Iature th«t will
plunge a daggei into the heart of the
local option law. It has been known
for some time that this scheme was
elandrstmely worked. Several in-e ■
tags h ive heretofore been held hi
hind closed doors for the proiuottoa of
this objec', aud 110 doubt secret organ-
ization has beet. had to that end but at
their list meeting they resolved to
make tbe figbt openly. The Xews
commends these gentlemen for deter-
mining to make an open tight on the
question. Now this issue is to be
forced upon tbe democrat? of Texas.
They will meet the ;&sue a id settle it
TLe people of Dentuti c unity are e»-
leciaily interested 111 having the law
remain to its present state of tfti_-i-ncy,
uot only for the moral aud financial
benefit of oar own people, bat ahu on

THE NEW ELECTION LAW.
Much has been written and published
iu the press of ihe state auent tbe new
orTerfell election law—the wouder-
fnl creation of the last legislature.
The esteemed Dallas New< has great
fear that the law will be rrpialed, as it
states in a recent issue that "there ap-
peal s to be a concerted effort to com-
pass the repeal of the new election law.''
ai d proceeds to question the motives of
those who are opposed to this cumber-
some, drastic and veritable "hotch-
p itrh'' law, that attaches penalties tor
a violation of certain parts of the law
that intelligent and patriotic officers
that have Wen appointed will almost
le detered from holding elections for
fear of violatiug some of its provisions;
to say nothing of the poor, unsophisti-
cated voter, who desires to exercisa the
elective franchise, without asking tbe
advice of some astute aud erudite limb
of the law just how the thing can be
done and the voter run no risk of be
ing mulcted by a fine for not possessing
the knowledge of the aforesaid lawyer.
As for the poor candidate he is up
against it good and strong, he is bog
tied and ham strung; in the promise-1
he must uot make, whether good, bad
or indifferent, neither can he have his
great merits known as a great and
mighty statesman without paying reg-
ular advertising rates, and even the
poor editor who takes a cigar or other
vallien thing as a consideration for ad-
vocating or opposing the election of
anyone, except "as is provided" in the
law, and as tbe editor has no time to
examine the intricacies of this wonder-
ful bill passed by the immortal Twenty-
ninth legislature, he will be compelled
to saw wood and say nothing for fear of
being declared guilty of a misdemeanor
aud serve bis county at the rock pile or
chain gang, thereby leaving his intelli-
gent aud patriotic readers in ignorance
of the many virtues aud wonderful
abilities of some can Mates and the
puerility, lax virtues and ignorance of
The News is willing ts admit that iu
the larger cities some drastic provisions
in the election laws are necessary to
protect the purity 0f the ballot and
prevent Ihe perpetration of frauds by
tbe bum element that is generally con-
trolled by corporations and the saloon,
but to argue that the same restrictions
aud safeguards are necessary in the
smaller towns and rural voting boxes is
a slander against our intelligent aud
In so far as the pol. tax requirement
as a prerequisite to voting is concerned
the News has no complaint—and the
News believes if the old law governing
elections iu this state had been amend
ed to conform to ths requirements of
the cjnstitntion as amende 1 in 1902,
making the payment of the poll tax as
a prerequisite to voting by those who
are subject to such tax, with additional
restrictions in cities oyer 10,000 inhabi-
tants, thereby protecting them from
the evil influences of the saloon iu city
politics aud the power of corporation!
would be all that any reasonable citi-
zen would have demanded. The News
would have the same safeguards and
restrictions thrown around the prima-
ry elec ions aud make them uniform
throughout the state, as the primary
election is in reality the electiou in this
state. The News suggests that distin-
guished statesmen who voted for the
passage of this electiou law might en-
lighten the voters upon its good points.
IJeutoa county farmers are all feel-
ing go )d over the prospets for a fine
wheat; crop the ooming season.
Sam Jones, the noted Georgia preach-
er, is one of the most powerfal w»n in
the pnlpit iu America, but when he
gets to talking polit'u-i he can J-tay as
many foolish things as aaybody. He is
now scoring our Tex is senators for op-
posing ihe ratification of tho Panama
treaty. He siys that t ie nam^-i of
Dnlbersoij and Btilny will be Dennis.
Texas, he think-1, wants the canal, aud
if the de uocraU o,ipole it, lie can beat
them at the next election with a "yal-
ler'' dog. Sam is erratic, but w« did
not think he would advocate the se-
curing of a canal at the price of nation-
al honor. A nati in's honor ought to be
above price, and if we must sacrifice
the canal or onr honor as a nation, let
it be tho former. —Bonham News.

Sir—I write to acknowledge receipt of

closed resolutions al jpted by the Busi-

in the daily papers of Texas 011 the lOch

given, I cannot vote to ratify the treaty
with the so-called Panama republic.
Very truly yours,

surprised at the above reply of Senato"
Culberson? How could they bs af;er

had the right to petition him to vote in
accordance with their views. The right
of the people or any number of them to

announce* Mint", additional fn»nl*?arh im-
peratively newssnry to carry out its
plans. Some sections of the state, *-he
committed nava, have done fairly well
in contributing towards tbe expense of
the enterprise, and that the bnsiness in-
terests have done nil that could b* ex-
1 peoted of tbein: but that other sections,
| s» ctions, too, which may expect to rnap
tbe greatest benefits, have not contrib-
uted their share. The committee says
the short time remaining, and the ex-
pense of making persona] solicitati.mr,
render that method impossible, there-
lore it makes a direct persona! appeal
to the people for voluntary subscrip-
tions. Concerning this matter tbe
"Tfxas cannot afford and must not
fail to have such an exhibit at St.
Louis as will be the pride of every citi-
zen in the state who visits the exsosi-
sition. A small contribution from
eacn of her citizens and a contribution
which will not be felt or remembered,
will make it possible to make such ex-
hibit as no other state in the American
union can make. We present to yon a
direct question: Will you personally
make this contribution on your part?

The readers of this paper will be ,
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease th:it science has
been able to cure iu all its stages, and
that is catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is
j the only positive cure known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a con-
stitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting directly
upon the blood and mucous surfaces of
the system, thereby destroying the
foundation of the disease, and giving
the patient strength by building up the
constitution and assist nature in doing
its work. Tne proprietors have so
much faith in its curative powers, that
they offer One Hundred Dollars for any
ase that it fails to cure. Hend for list
