Convention adopted the following plat-
form and, resolutions:
To the Chairman and Delegates of the
Democratic County Convention of Hop-
kins County, Texas, Assembled this,
the 29th. day of July A. D. 1916.
1. We indorse the platform adopted
at the National Democratic Convention
assembled in the city of St. Louis in
2. We indorse the administration of
Woodrow Wilson, and believe that his
Wisdom;v patriotism, democracy, and
commendable caution in guiding the
ship of state has almost reached a de-
gree of perfection and brought to his
countrymen a condition of honor and
peacefulness that every American
should be proud of.
3. We indorse our state adminis-
tration under the guidance of Govern-
or J. E. Ferguson, and commend him
and the course of his administration,
and especially do we commend his
course in paying and causing to be
paid the honest debts of his state. We
believe that his idea in assisting, by
the use of the funds of the state, in
thi education of the youths in the
rural districts, is laying a foundation
of which we will ultimately be proud
on account of its raising the standard
of the citizenship of our country.
4. We indorse the administration
of B. F. Looney, and his splendid band
of deputies, and believe that the vot-
ers of Texas, in electing him to suc-
ceed himself have taken a wise course.
5. We ihdorse the course pursued
by our state superintendent of public
instruction, Mr. Doughty and commend
him for his wisdom and many virtues.
6. All the candidates having been
eliminated from the senatprtal race ex-
cepting two, and it being certain that
one of the two aspirants will be elect-
ed and represent the great state of
Texas at Washingtong for the next
six years, we recommend that in the
campaign for the two candidates, that
electioneering and contentions in the
behalf of either shall be conducted on
the highest plane. Whoever carries
the commission to the capital let him
carry it clean and unscratched, unen-
cumbered, with anything detrimental
from the good citizens of Hopkins
7. In lookfng over the standard of
the citizenship of the great State of
Texas, we are proud to say, that we
don’t believe that it is excelled by any

SULPHUR SPRINGS AND HOPKINS
COUNTY GETS JEFFERSON v
At a meeting of the National Di-
rectors of the Jefferson Highway As-
sociation held at St. Joseph, Mo., July
19th., all contests were‘definitely set-
tled and those whom have labored so
hard to wrestle .from us this great
highway went home from St. Joseph
feeling and knowing that those in
charge were men of influence and
good judgment, as has been said be-
fore the State of Arkansas made a
strong fight for it, and this state was
the one that had given Texas#such a
fight, but when it come to the final
settlement, Texas gets all she asked
for and Arkansas gets nothing. So,
the route through Texas as was
adopted at the Greenville meeting on
January 19th, 1916, stands as adopt-
ed. Terrell and Tyler and those coun-
ties that made such a fight on Hop-
kins county, they, too, get nothing.
We hope all of our people are aware
that Texas made the best report of
progress as did any other state thru
which this great highway runs.
It’s how up to the people to connect
this road and begin advertising it. A
relay run is now being planned for
the southern end of the Jefferson
Highway to take place in October.
The Library Ladies will sell ice
cream cones Saturday, August 5th. at
