candidates came in for discussion.
Mr. Davidson's indorsement by the |
conference resulted in the undivided j
support of the farmer delegates, j
The conference also furnished the I
outstanding occurrence in the cam- '
paign of Former Governor James K.
Ferguson. It was during discussion j
of the various candidates that a let-
ter from Mr. Ferguson was read in
which he informed the conference
that he did not care for the indorse-
ment and requested that his name
| not be considered. Mr. Ferguson
| gave as his chief reason that the
! conference had “openly indorsed
j three members of the Ku klux Klan,
and that he did not caare to have
I the support of an organization that
indorsed klan candidates. His name,

at the home in Sefner, a village ten
miles east of here.
The girl implicated her mother in
the statement in which she said she
was ordered to kill her father by
her mother. Both are in the county
jail here, charged with murder.
A story of membership of the
family in a religious sect was told
by the girl. She said her father had
suffered two strokes of paralysis
recently. She, her mother, and fath-
er visited a gathering of the sect at
St. Petersburg, last Sunday and re-
turned home Thursday night.
The father, according to1 the girl,
was so benefited by attending the
meeting that the mother felt an of-

the benefiaction. The killing of the
father was decided upon as the of-

The lieutenant governor’s race
saw another candidate added to it

announced hiB candidacy but did so
at the conference after his indorse

An unexpected development was
the indorsement by the conference

It was also said the indorsement
was to put up “one more bar"
against the possible candidacy of

“Forty contributors, many of
them well known for their work in
Texas history, literature, and edu-

edited against the background of

of Texas of the eighteenth century;
some of them claim origin among
Austin’s colonists. Only those
legends, with few exceptions, have
been included that now have, or
