From the West Texas Sentinel,
The Sentinel has received a
letter from Mr. B. F. Lewis of
Erath county in which be says:
“I want you to tell me why it is
not a fusion proposition the reso-
lution adopted in Waco March 24,
suggesting Debs and Harriman to
vice preside.it. Debs is a socialist
and not a populist and ignores the
finance question altogether in his
platform and populists lay much
stress on their demand for scien-
In reply the Sentinel has to say
as follows: Those populists who
favor Debs and denouncing the
other populists who favor fusion
with the democrats and silver re-
publicans are just as much fusion-
ists as the other fellows, only they
prefer to fuse with the union re-
formers and social democrats. Fu-
sion is fusion no matter who are
the parties to the combination. To
fuse means to blend or to mix up
things together, in scientific sense.
In politics they are fusionists
who favor the blending or mixing
together of two political parties
for election purposes. Populists
who favor fusion with union re-
formers and secial democrats say
those are no reformers. The ques-
tion is who are to be the judges in
the premises. Bryan and his crowd
swear they are reformers. Teller
and his crowd are equally certain
they are reformers. Ask Debs and
he will tell you he and his crowd are
simon-pure reformers, away ahead
of populists. And Chairman
Thompson of the uniform reform
party has no sort of doubt but that
he and his party associates are the
besf of all reformers. There are
the prohibitionists and the woman
suffragists who would indignantly
repudiate any assertion that dis-
credited their claim to be reform-
ers in the best sense. The act is
as itr savors a little arrogance,does
it not ? For any party to set its self
upon a pedestal of its own making
and lay claim to being the only
pebble on the reform beach. It is
about in line with the disposition
which has been prompting of our
Texas populists to denounce every
other populist who don’t happen

It will be observed by those who
go slowly over the returns of the
recent election in Louisiana that
Senator McEnery will be returned
to the Senate and that Senator
Caffery will be retired. Then, ii
those who have gone over the re-
turns slowly will reflect a moment
they will remember that Senator
McEnery is the only democrat in
ithe Senate who voted to inflict
that 15 per cent protective tarifi
against Puerto Rican exports to
this couutry. Further reflection
will perhaps cause them to remem-
ber also that the democratic part)
is about to make its tight on the
issue that “ the Constitution
follows the flag,” and that Puerto
Ricans, as Americans, ought not tn
be put under the ban of our laws
Still further reflection will make
these observers of the Louisiana
election wonder just where the
party is even on the tariff ques-

HUBBARD & LEE,
And when we extend an investi
to agree with them on every issue I gation a little further,, vve find tint
of principle and policy as boodlere Alabama declared for Morgan,
and cowards. Down in Louisiana
the middle of the road populists
have fused with the democrats. II
one will only take time to think
over the whole matter and will
consider it dispassionately, it will
not be hard to determine that fu-
sion per se, is not a crime politi-
cally. If it is based on a trade to
swap votes for spoils it i‘s dishon-
orable, and that is the kind ol
fusion tbe Sentinel condemns. But
the People’s party is one result of
fusion. The Farmers Alliance,the
Knights of Labor and many other
quasi-political organization got to-
gether in conference and simply
entered into a fusion and organized
a new party and called it the “Peo-
ple’s Party. No matter what they
may say to the contrary, every
populist who favors Debs, a social-
ist or a union reformer or any other
than an affiliated populist for pres-
ident or vice president, is quite as
distinctly a fusionist as the popu-
list who favors Bryan. The Sen-
tinef; as a choice between Bryan,
JIarker and Debs, prefers Deb<,
because he has not only shown his
convictions and has suffered in
prison for conscience sake, he is a
good man, a patriot and statesman
and the Sentinel may vote for him
if he is not a populist.
expansiunsionist, while Arkansas
goes for Berry an anti-expansionist,
and Texas takes Bailey who i.-
fighting hie own party and state
platform. The Republicans an
divided into two factions on these
vital issues, and the populist into
three factions and if the party was
big enough it, no doubt, would be
split again. One faction believes
that the wisest thing to be done is
to nominate Bryan, another advo-
cates fusing with the socialists, and
the third believes, in standing by
the Barker and Donnally ticket
Our opinion is that if the re-
forms set forth in the Omaha plat-
form and the last Nebraska, dem-
ocratic state platform are ever en-
acted into laws, it will be through
the united efforts of the Southern
and Western states. —Farm and
