termination to roll up for Governor Col-
quitt in tl.e July primary the greatest
majofity ever east by Bexar county for
any candidate In the history of the State
was the keynote of the Colijultt club
meeting In Turner hall tonight. v It was
announced that while the adherent of
Judge Ramsey in San Antonio art l.ol
making much noise they are none the
less active and It behooves every Colquitt
man In ll xar county not only to vote
himself on July IT mit to see that his
friends and neighbors who feel as he
does to ole too.
The meeting was railed to order by the
president of the club Martin J. Arnold
and despite limited notice given there
were more than two hundred present Mr.
Arnold first read a telegram from Bob

Governor Colquitt to be in Han Antonio

he would maJie a special effort to be here
and make at least one speech before the
date set for the primaries.
in explaining this. Mr. .Arnold said;
"Governor t'olqultt lias to make Ills cam-
paign dates conform to his executive
duties apd lt1s not possible for him to
he in all the cities Just when he desires
lie has assured us however tlmt he will
b.1 In San Antonio before the primaries.
"It is our duty to see that he gets the
votes to which tie and the principles for
which he stands are Justly entitled at
the hands of the Bexar county electorate.
To do that It will only be necessary to
get out the vote. There is no use in
seeking to make converts Just get out
the vote. Governor Colquitt's position on
the prohibition question is that It is set-
tled In Texas for a generation while his
opponent says if he Is elected he will try
to fasten prohibition on us whether we
want It or not.
"Neither man is given to Idle talk and
If the citizens of San Antonio wish to re-
tain thrir personal liberties they should
do their part and vote for Governor Col-
quitt and against prohibition "
B. H. Ward was Introduced as the
speaker of the evening. In part he said:
"There Is but one issue In this guber-
natorial campaign and It Is that of prohl-
tlon. The trouble with the bulk of the
people In this State is they do not realize"
this and some or the anus l tear win

"In the first place the pros of this Stats
had been trying for years to get the sub-
mission of a constitutional amendment
before the people but as It requires a
two-thirds majority in the legislature
they could never have gotten it but for
the decision of the antls to make a test
with the understanding that th result of
this election would settle- the prohibition
question in Texas for years to come."
Mr. Ward then declared that the pros
acted In had falUsHn not accepting the
results of the Statewide election last
summer and that if fraud was commit-
ted as charged both sides were culpable.
In speaking of Judge Ramsey. Governor
Colqultfs opponent. Mr. Ward said:
"I know Judge Ramsey and personally
know him to be a high-toned honorable
f:entleman. Kijowlng him as I .do it Is
nconceivable to me that he would an-
nounce a platform of his Itnentions If
elected governor and not seek to carry
them out Now of what does his plat-
form consist? He says.4f he Is elected
he will seek -first to have the prohibition
question again submitted- tp the people
and failing in this he will recommend the
enactment of a quart law and a law pro-
hibiting the sale of liquor within ten
miles of a schoolhouse.
"In conclusion I wish to urge you to
go to the polls July J1 and go there early.

Governor Colquitt thanked the little

SEES RECORD FRUIT
AND TRUCK CROP
p. M. Secrist Vice President of Pa-
cific Fruit Express Optimistic
Eegarding Texas Conditions.
(Houston Post Sfecitl
FORT WORTH Texas. June 14. That
thfl fruit and 'truck crop of East Texas
this yiar will be the largest In the his-
tory of that section Is the opinion of
C. M. Secrist vice pr sid nt and Renojal
manager of the I'aclfic Fruit Express'
who spent Thursday in Fort Worth.
Mr. Secriat is traveling In Ills private
car tho Sierra. w hioli came In from
Jacksonville) Wrdnewiay night his ob-
ject In vlBltlng tlje Kant Texas country
being to "gi t a line on" the approximate
umber of cars his line will have to
supply and expressed himself' as being
Hundreds of cars already have been
placed at sidings where fruit and truck
are to be loaded and while much truck
is being and has been shipped the peach
movement has commenced and it Is
believed that the crop will be large and
the grade excellent.
It is estimated that the fruit and truck
movement from the Jacksonville terri-
tory this year will total about KOOO cars.
"That is a good crop" said Mr. Se-
crist "but that could be multiplied If the
fruit and truck men would exert them-
selves and It Is believed that they will
within the next few years. The soil
and climate is Ideal for fruit and truck
and only a small portion of such land Is
used for this purpose.
"Eight thousand acres of fruit and
truck sounds like a big thing but the
orange crop of California last year to-
taled 46000 cars and from the Imperial
valley alone more than 3300 cars of
cantaloupes were shipped and the valley
la but about fifteen by twenty-five miles
Mr. Sacrist says that the fruit and
truck growers of East Texas need to be
educated a bit on the manner In which
the fruit is packed. (
Take the California cnerries lor in-
stance" he. said. "They are packed in
cartons the top layer of which la placed
evenly with all the sterna' out of sight
and present a very pleasing appearance.
These cartons are packed eight io a
box and the extra expense. Including
the cartons and labor is sala to be less
than 10 cents per box. and they find
ready market at twice the price that
can be obtained for such fruit packed
carelessly In large boxes. The same thing
will apply to any kind of fruit or vege-
tables packed and the sooner the Texaa
shippers realize this and act upon It the
sooner they will get better prices for
their products. "t
