Texas, as second-class mail matter.
General Huerta, man of blood
and iron, has abdicated the
usurped presidency of Mexico.
And the world waits for the
next Chapter in this drama of
blood, strife and destruction.
Who will be the next “patriot”
to despoil his people of the few
crumbs left to them?
When will the next revolution
break out and drench this
stricken land with the littlo blood
Some there are who fondly be-
lieve that peace is at hand. But
the wish is apt to be father to the
Certainly a new* government
will be set up by the Constitution-
alists, and a semblance of peace
may prevail for a time. But it
will not last, because there will
be no restraining hand to give it
There are not offices enough to
go around, and it will be but. a
question of time when some hun-
gry chieftain who has been de-
nied his place at the crib will
raise again the santard of revolt
It will be but another chapter
in the old, old story of Mexico’s
shame—and ours—for we, a
great and mighty people, sit idly
by while a sister nation writhes
in the throes of self-destruction.

Black’s Friends Claim
Victory in Morris
Omaha, Texas, July 21.—The
joint discussion held here tonight
between Mr. Black and Mr.
Vaughan, candidates for con-
gress, resulted in a decided vic-
tory for Mr. Black and it is our
sincere belief that the debate
will result in Mr. Black carrying
Morris county by a good ma-
jority. • ;

and Horace Vaughan. A special

From every source of informa-
tion comes the report that Black
will carry the Western end of the
district, ncluding Delta, Hopkins,
Lamar and Red River counties
with a majority far in excess of
expectations of his friends. His
campaign manager, Mr. C. A.
Rose of Clarksville, has given out
the following statement:
From carefully going over the
reports made by our friends at
every box in the district, and
from information recived through
other sources, v,e feel we can
safely say that Eugene Black
will carry Lamar by 2500 votes.
Red River by 1500 votes. Delta
200 votes, Hopkins by 300 votes.
Camp by 100 votes, Titus by 100
votes/ Morris by 100 votes. In
the counties of Bowie, Cass,
Marion and* Franklin Mr.
Vaughan cannot hope to get more
than 1500 majority and some of
these last named counties we are
assured are in the doubtful

Campaign manager for Eu-
Paris within thirty minutes after
the arrangements were com-
pleted. The party were accom-
panied by the Blossom band.
It was Mr. Black’s appoint-
ment and Mr. Vaughan’s friends
had asked for a division of time
which was readily granted by
Mr. BltLck. Mr. Black having
opened the discussion in a joint
debate held at Ben Franklin a few
days ago it was Mr. Vaughan’s
turn to open here. He spoke for
a t hour and a quarter and made
a closing speech of fifteen 'min-
,In reply to that portion of Mr.
Vaughan’s speech devoted to the
discussion of his record in con-
gress, Mr. Black said that Mr.
Vaughan had only referred to
three measures—the Underwood
tariff law, the Glass currency bill
and the income tax law, and that
Keither of these measures were
individual acheivements of Mr.
Vaughan but were platform
measures demanded by the Demo-
crat’s platform at Baltimore, in
which all good Democrats who be-
lieve in supporting platform de-
mands were in harmony'. Mr.
Black proved that he had led the
fight in Red River county two
years ago for Woodrow Wilson,
and stated that private Demo-
