that the country press of Texas take
up the cause of the Post-Dispatch,
whether that cause he right or wrong,
in the estimation of each individual
newspaper of the State.
The Post-Dispatch has no right or
reason to deinaml that the rural press
of Texas support tlie candidacy of
Dan Moody, whether this paper or
that paper would choose him for sup
port. If there is a moral issue at stake,
and few of doubt it, then why must
the Post-Dispatch claim the right to
dictate. Other candidates are in the
field than Mrs. Ferguson, than Mr.
Moody. Who of us must tell all the
people of Texas that these are not
deserving? In its feverish devotion to
the candidacy of Mr. Moody the Post-
Dispatch would tolerate little of liber-
ty of thought or action or even opin-
The Record makes no pretense of
judging the merits or demerits of any
candidate in race for governor of the
slate. That is our privilege; it is the
privilege of the Post-Dispatch to
champion Mr. Moody. The Post-Dis-
patch has no right to criticize or dic-
tate the opinion of any individual. To
do so is but a manifestation of that
thing Americans most detest—person-
al liberties as they pertain to freedom
of speech and freedom of thought.
The RecoVd defends neither M,V.
Davidson nor Mrs. Ferguson. But it
does attempt to defend the Texas
country press against the insinuations
of the Post-Dispatch, or any other
great city dally. The present political
squabble is but a sorry mess at best.
Texans long for a candidate seeking
the most distinguished and honorable
of offices, free of the cheap and dis-
tasteful ravings as contained in the
public addresses of Mr. Moody, Mrs.
Ferguson and Mr. Davidson.
Texas has had to sacrifice her dig-
nity. has been made the butt of every
vaudeville show joke north of the
Mason-Dixon liuet has been humiliat-
ed times without number by the high-
ly colored stories appearing in the
press of other states, Texas would
like to support a candidate for gov-
ernor with interests of the people at
heart, truly, as these interests were
uppermost in the minds of her illus-
trous governors of yore.
Texas would like to see some man
seated in the governor’s chair with
tlie dignity and responsibilty of his
high office resting heavily upon his
shoulders; would like to see a govern-
01 with no thought of self, no thought
of the belittling campaigns of hate to
elevate him to this office. To judge
by the daily and nightly speeches of
Mr. Ferguson. Mr. Moody or Mr.
Davidson, the governorship of Texas
is created and exists solely for the
one or the other, and that person
promoting the greater campaign of
hate must ride in on the wave.

BARNETT & LAWS
GONE TO REST
Mr. T. E. Estes, 221 W. Lee Street,
died at the county hospital about 5:00
p. n»., Tuesday, after a lingering ill-
ness, and was burled from the First
Baptist church Wednesday afternoon
at 5:00 with Masonic honors.
Thomas Jones Estes was born at
Sumpter, in East Texas, September
7. 1856, and was reared in that section
of the state. Later in life he removed
to Milam county where he was mar-
ried on August 18, 188 . He has lived
In Kingsville for many years, honored
of his fellow citizens| and well loved
by all who knew him.
His wife and seven children survive
him. Three of the children reside in
South America: W. O. Estes, T. W.
Estes and Mrs. A. B. Pullen. Mrs. H
B. Bozeman lives in Winnifield, La.,
and the Misses Sarah, Ursula and
Junta Ed live here, the last four nam-
ed being with the father at the time
of his death. Mr. H. B. Bozeman, the
son-in-law arrived Wednesday morning
for the funeral.
Mr. Estes was a sufferer fr osoiua
years with a cancerous tumor on liis
liver, from which he died, and had
sought health by travel in a wagon for
the last two years. It was while on a
recent trip that lie grew worse, and
when he consulted a physician in San
Antonio, the physician advised him to
return home. In a few days after his
arrival home, he was taken to the hos-
pital in an unconscious state from
which he never revived. Mr. Estes
held fellowship in the First Baptist
church of this city, and was also a
members of the Masonic fraternity,
both of which organizations took part
in his funeral.
The Record is entitled to a choice
of men seeking office. The paper does
not attempt to force editorial opinion
down the throat of any man. The
Record does not have to declare itself
for Mr. Moody and wage a war of
printed words against Mrs. Ferguson
or Mr. Davidson. The Post-Dispatch
has the Texas rural press numbered
wrong. The Texas country press is
still free and independent of the great
daily press. The country press is still
for the people, because it is of the peo-
ple--the masses, with a niind of its
own and a vote of its own.
This is a personal opinion, not to be
considered in the light of an indispu-
table fact. The reader might see diff-
erently; that is his privilege. Person-
ally, we will.interest ourselves in the
fast approaching election and that in-
terest will in all likelihood not he
heralded to the world.
Robert Hansen one of the pioneer
citizens of Kleberg county, died this
afternoon at 7:10 o’clock. Mr. Hansen
was born in Norway and was about
65 years did. Funeral services as an-
nounced. will be held Thursday even-
ing. July 15, from the Baptist church,
with Rev. E. E. Dawson officiating
and interment will be had in Chamber-
lain Burial Park at 4:30 o’clock, in-
asmuch as this paper was going to
press at the time of Mr. Hansen’s
death it was impossible to give a more
Street Opening Cele-
bration Goes Over
In Grand Style
One of the largest crowds ever as-
sembled for any purpose packed the
block on Kleberg avenue between
Kixtli and Seventh streets Wednesday
night to celebrate the opening of that
street in its dress of concrete paving.
!l is estimated that several thousand
people enjoyed the evening of music
and dancing, in deep appreciation of
the very thing for which the town had
been waiting for years. The Kingsville
Band put on an extra good program of
music, while the dancing, starting at
9:30, Tasted until midnight, time set
for final opening of the street to traf-
fic. The paving contractors, under su-
pervision of Superintendent Spence>
had made ever effort Tuesday and
Wednesday, working under difficulties
that the promise made for an open
street by Wednesday night might be
carried out. An extra crew worked
practically all of Tuesday night remov
lug dirt from the pavement, and all
day Wednesday the major portion of
work centered about this block. Ap-
preciating the pavement as they did
Wednesday night, the people of Kings-
ville also share this appreciation with
the contractors in charge for making
possible the very pleasant evening
and an open street Thursday morning.
