THE DAY OF RECKONING
The oil boom at Amarillo has caus-
ed the Daily News in that city to
sound a warning against hasty city
building and haphazard construction
of new additions. It says: "The town
is growing without any objective, any
thought of beauty." Continuing the
paper savs: “Building her? escapes
regulations that are imposed in most
cities. New additions are laid out
and the lots sold before the city en-
gineers’ office knows of their exis-
tence. Consequently there is no

town has 5 solid foundation that will
enable it to survive the storms of ad-
versity that lurk in the distance, and
occasionally a well designed building

The permanent improvement that
has taken place in Coleman during the
past two years stands as a mute mon-
ument to the wisdom and progressive-
ness of Coleman business men who
have not been shaken in their deter-
mination and laudable ambition to
build a town that will be a pattern
for others, free of commonplace struc-
tures and unsightly buildings that ul-
timately are removed at exorbitant

Davidson says Moody is being sup-

nothing. Mayor John W. Tobin of
San Antonio is supporting Moody.
Mrs. Edith Wilmans of Dallas, lady
candidate for governor, is making an
active campaign and like all the rest,
is claiming victory. She wants to
give the newspapers more freedom by
amending the libel law so they can
print the names of liquor law viola-
tors without being subjected to prose-
cution. _ _ ^
In heavenly San Antonio placards
have been posted in the windows at
Moody’s headquarters announcing
that “Rangers will not be sent into
any community unless local authori-
ties demand it.” It is a mighty good
way to carry Bexar county, but a poor

VOTERS OF COLEMAN COUNTY
IN PRECINCT NO. 1:
I, Will McKaughan. proceed to say, if elected in
Precinct No. 1 for Commissioner, will try to get
our Highway Car Tax money left in each precinct
in each county in the State of Texas. We have a
road, which you all know7, running through Cole-
man County which the Highway Commission
should have asphalted ten or twelve months ago.
I think if this loss can be amended, it will be the
greatest law if any Commissioner of any precinct
can get the law amended. If the money that we
send off on our car tax was left in each precinct
in each county for the course of four years, the
taxes on our land that was raised 15 or 20 years
ago to build good roads and highways could be
reduced to their former rates, and the money for
our car taxes left in the precincts and used by the
Commissioners of each precinct, then there could
be good roads and highways in all communities,
and the land tax would be reduced.
I hope you will give this your attention and
decide in my favor. Your votes will all be appre-
ciated and if I am elected, I will serve you to the
best of my ability and try to carry out this plan.

Wichita Falls, July 18.-A poll of
the courthouse here today showed
more than a majority of all the offi-
cials and employes to be Davidson
supporters. Moody was second and
Ferguson a very poor third. Prior to
the speeches made here by the three
candidates this section was strongly
Moody. Sentiment has turned up-
side down since Davidson’s speech
here, which was attended by one of
the greatest political crowds ever
known in this section, with delega-
tions present from 25 west Texas
towns and cities. ,

They Want Pearce Returned.
Representative A. L. Pearce receiv-
ed a letter Monday from Representa-
tive J. H. Boggs, of San Angelo, that
will furnish Coleman and Brown
county voters an idea of the esteem
in which Mr. Pearce is held by his
colleagues. It is here reproduced:
San Angelo, Texas, July 17, 1926.
Hon. A. L Pearce,
Dear Sir and Friend:
I am indeed glad that you are a can-
didate for re-election as representa-
tive from your district and you should
be re-elected without opposition. One
good term deserves another, and your
work in the Legislature and on com-;
mittees was a great help to us and of
the highest type. If Texas had more
members in the Legislature like A. L.1
Pearce we would soon put Texas on,
her feet financially and otherwise. So
many candidates for the Legislature
have aq “axe to grind" but your only
axe was to serve your constituency I
faithfully, honorably and honestly, |
and I am sure the folks in your dis-.
trict appreciate your efforts and will
re-elect you for a second time. With
kindest personal regards, I am,

Tax Collector J. C. Lewis
Makes Statement to Cole-
man County Voters:-
Since the duties of the Tax Collector’s office are such that
it requires practically all of my time to attend to them, 1 will
be unable to see each and every voter of the county, as 1
should like to do. This is especially true of the lady voters,
as 1 have had occasion to meet the men in the office and on
the streets. Please bear in mind that I am trying to give you
the kind of service that 1 think you are entitled to even though
I am deprived of the privilege of seeing you personally as
many other candidates are doing and I should like to do were
1 am asking for re-election strictly on the record which I
have made in this office and 1 respectfully request that those
of you who are not familiar with my work make an investiga-
tion of my record before casting your vote.
