deadlocks are becoming fashiona-

of such foolishness, and demand
the majority rule, which will to a
great extent remedy this evil.
There is talk of another bolt in
the State convention, but there’s
absolutely nothing in the report.
The great rank and file of the par-
ty are too well pleased with the
harmony now existing to want any
more of that splitting business.
Some enterprising delegate to
the State convention could make a
nice little pile of money by taking
along with him a well-developed
ground-swell, warranted not to
“swunk up” when put to the test.

If our people take the proper
interest in the matter, Cherokee
county’s fair will be made second
to none in the State, - We certain-

there is no reason why we should
not have as good an exhibition of
our resources and advantages as
any county in Texas. Let every-
body aid in the good work, as it
requires unity to make anything
of this character a success.

The only thing that hasn’t pros-

green and fresh-looking as it was
early in the spring, yet it don’t
seem to grow any, and on the oth-
er hand seems really smaller than
it did a few months ago. The best
farmers have despaired of it ever
getting ripe and have determined
to plow it up in November and use
it for manure.

The deadlock in the tenth Con-
gressional convention at Halletts-
ville was broken Wednesday by
the nomination of Miles Crowley,
of Galveston. The original contest
between Gresham and Lane be-
came so heated as to make it im-
possible to nominate either ot
them, and Crowley was run in as a
dark horse. He served Galveston
county in the twenty-second legis-
lature, and is at present a member
of the State senate.
The Congressional convention
has been called to meet at Pales-
tine on Tuesday, Aug. 28th, for the
purpose of nominating a Democrat-
ic candidate for Congress from this
the 2nd district. Cooper, Perkins,
Blount and Adams are the candi-
dates, with the vote of the district
pretty well divided between them.
Cooper’s friends claim he will have
a majority on tfie first ballot, but
it is not probable that this is cor-
rect. A deadlock seems inevita-
ble, especially if the two-thirds
rule prevails, and we suppose it
At Elkhart last Friday Hon. B.
F. Rogers and W. W. Larue, Dem-
ocratic and Populist nominees, re-
spectively, for the State senate,
engaged in a joint discussion, in
which the former literally wiped
up the earth with the latter. Hon.
John Young Gooch, Democratic
nominee for representative from
Anderson county, also had a joint
debate with John F. Wee(a)ks, ot
this city, sometimes known as the
“silver - tongued (brass-cheeked)
orator of the Populist party.”
Those who know anything of the
ability of these two gentlemen will
not be surprised to learn that he
of the silver-plated-brass-tongue
got hit so hard with the strong ar-
guments of Mr. Goocli that he has
not yet fully recovered from the
shock, and the indications are that
he will not likely foster a desire to
meet the gentleman from Anderson
on the stump again soon.
The lily-white Republican con-
vention met at Dallas this week
and went through the formality of
nominating a State ticket, which
we give below: For governor, J. 11.
Schmitz, of Denton; lieutenant-
governor, M. W. Mann, of Dallas;
attorney-general, W. H. Atwell, of
Dallas; comptroller, Tom P. John-
son, of San Antonio, treasurer, H.
K. Davis, of Hearne; superintend-
ent of public instruction, S. D.
Swinford, of Houston; judge su-
preme court, Lock McDaniel, of
Kolb and his followers are again
out in the cold. In the election in
Alabama last Monday the Demo-
crats won all the state offices by
25,000 majority. They also gained
the legislature, which insures a
Democratic successor to Senator
Morgan. Tnis is another crushing
defeat for the Pops, who had great
hopes of carrying Alabama. We
really feel sorry for them, but then
they don’t need much sympathy—
the thing is getting so common
they can stand defeat better than
From Washington comes the
news that the conference commit-
tee between the House and Senate
have at last agreed upon a tariff
compromise. Iron ore is to be
placed on the free list, while a tax
of 40 cents per ton will be placed
on coal. The sugar schedule will
remain as agreed upon and some
slight changes will be made in the
metal and woolen schedules. It is
expected that both houses will
adopt the report of the conference
committee, as the best way out of
the difficulty, and that a tariff bill
will be passed in a few days. This
report seems reliable, yet there
have been so many false rumors
about the matter the people will
not rest easy until the Wilson bill
has received the signature of Pres-
ident Cleveland and has gone into
effect as a law.
Sell the Surplus.
One of the wealthiest men in
Henderson informed the Times this
week that he had sold over $5
worth of roasting ears from one
quarter of an acre and this was
but a small portion of the yield.
But the point sought to be made
here is the importance of utilizing
and making profitable that which
we produce. There are some
farmers who have a sort ot false
pride about selling things. They
are ashamed to bring their own
hard-earned products to the mar-
ket and sell them. It seems to
us that the farmer should place his
melons, fruits, eggs, chickens and
roasting ears on the market with
as much pride as Jay Gould ever
offered railroad stocks for sale.
A Suggestion to the County Fair AT THIS SEASON
Ed. Banner:—I wish to make a
suggestion in regard to tne coun-
ty fair, and as you seem to be
friendly towards such enterprises,
I suppose you will publish any-
thing that would tend to add to
the success of the fair. I see that
the executive committee are de-
termined to push the work and
make the fair a success.
The benefits to accrue from the
fair are too numerous to mention.
Every county in the Stale that"
has a well organized fair associa-
tion is taking the lead of other
counties in progress and enter-
prise. The exhibits of fine stock
and fine agricultural products are
encouraging to the farmers.
They all tend to make the people
bestir themselyes to see which
I wish to suggest to the execu-
tive committee that an “Educa-
tional Day” be added, as one of
the features of the fair. I think
this can be made one of the most
interesting days of the fair, and
it will probably attract more vis-
itors than any other one thing
that could be added.
This would bring peo*ple from
the rural districts. They are all
interested in the public schools,
and whenever the various schools
of the county are represented by
pupils, they will also be represent-
ed by patrons. All schools that
begin in September or October
would have time to make prepara-
tion and make a creditable show-
ing at the fair. The last school I
taught (Shiloh) is far enough ad-
vanced to acquit themselyes well,
and there are a great many others
that could do as well, and some
that could do better. The exer-
cises would consist of songs, es-
says, declamations, recitations,
calisthenic exercises and any oth-
er features that the teachers see
fit to prepare.
I hope that the executive com-
mittee will consider the matter
carefully, and act as they see fit.
Judge Guinn could very easily
call the teachers together and
have a program arranged. Some
leading educators of the State
could be invited to speak at the
fair on this occasion.

The laws of the state specify
that the governor with the lieu-
tenant governor and speaker of
the house, shall in such cases ap-
point a committee consisting of
three members of the house and
two of the senate, to investigate
them. Governor Lewelling re-
fused to appoint such a committee
but by himself referred the
charges to the penitentiary com-
mittee, which was interested in
the matter. They met on Tues-
day and while in session, Chase
began a row by calling Judge Mc-
Donald, of Fort Scott, a liar, and
knocked him down, drew a revol-
ver and terrorized the whole bus-
iness. McDonald and the clerks
who preferred the charges were
afraid to meet the committee
again, and behold, Chase was
whitewashed. McDonald will not
let the matter rest here, but will
take it into the courts. This is
some more of the two years
record of the Populist govern-
ment of Kansas. A pretty good
