The impression on the people of Texas is sought to be made that Gov- ernor Hogg, had he lived, would have supported some candidate other than Tom Campbell for governor. Now, in case there should be a ques- tion in the mind of anybody as to whom Governor Hogg would have sup- ported in this campaign, we quote en- tire a letter written by him on May 17th, 1905, to Mr. W. P. Cameron, At- lanta, Texas, in reply to a letter from that gentleman, asking his views as to the prospective candidates: Houston, Texas, May 17th, 1905. Mr...

Davis of Arkansas. Jeff goes to the j senate. The people of Arkansas i smashed the machine. "Press and pol- j iticlans" snarled and snapped at the 1 heels of Bob Taylor of Tennessee, and j what happened to "press and politic- ! ians" is ancient history. Smash the machine in Texas. Smash the candi- dates of the machine, and smash the special and selfish interests in league with the machine. This is the disin- terested advice of the Times Herald. A square deal is demanded—for the corporations and the people and for capital as well as labor.—Dallas Times Herald, May 29, 1906. THE PASS IN POLITICS. Discussing the whining protest of the chairman of the Democratic state committee of Missouri against the withdrawal of transportation favors from delegates to the various state conventions, the Post-Dispatch says: "If giving $l,000,u00 worth of trans- portation a year to politicians, dele- gates and legislators, which is the es- timate of a well-informed railroad man as to the value of politi...

difference is that the tyranny in the one instance being direct and palpa- ble, when carried too fur, produced a bloody revolution, while the oppres- sion of the greal railway systems be- ing indirect in the shape of freight rates as heavy as "the traffic will bear" is not realized by the people. But it is not so much by means of excessive freight rates as by discrim- inations and favors to the few that the manipulators of the great railway corporations have been able to pile up such vast wealth in the hands of the few. Through these discriminations and favors to the few the great trusts have been built up that prey upon the masses to such an extent as to already threaten the utter destruc- tion of individual enterprise in every field of endeavor. Not a trust in this country could have been built up without the aid of the railways and not a single one could continue to ex- ist without the aid of the railways. In my judgment, the only way to reach a solution of the trust question is ...

favoring the Hogg amendments, neither of his distinguished opponents have, so far as I recall, given us any distinct statement in favor of or against these amendments. These amendments are Democratic doctrine—they are placed in the platform of the Democratic party of Texas, they have never been taken out of that platform. It has been urged that a man who does not vote for his party's nomi- nees should be made guilty of a mis- demeanor; if this is true, a man who does not support his party's platform should be guilty of a felony. No one has more clearly or dis- tinctly stated his determination to up- hold law than has Campbell. He is the pioneer in advocating an effective and independent Department of Agriculture. I know from my ob- servation of similar departments in other states that no law could do more to help our state than this. Nor will the farmer alone reap bene- fit from it. You know that if our far- mers are prosperous we are all pros- perous. This proposed law has es- peci...

"The Campbells Are Coming." A LAST WORD. This is the last Issue of our paper. We have labored faithfully for a good cause, and the friends of Mr. Camp- bell have every reason to believe that his nomination Is assured. We are proud to be numbered among his supporters. —o— Because— He is a native born Texas Demo- crat without fear and without re- proach. —o— He was the only railroad manager in Texas who supported Hogg and the measures he stood for. —o— That man—beloved of the plain people—was his friend and endorse-! our candidate in the present race. He was the first opponent of the free-pass evil to make a practical ap- plication of his faith. —o— It is a matter of common knowledge along the I. & G. N. road that when he became receiver of that road he reduced the free-pass list more than seventy-five per cent. —o— He was the only general manager of a railroad in the United States who supported Bryan for president. He resigned his place as manager rather than surrender his politi...

■ '4KJ~ conscience, and there will be no "pow- er behind the throne." In nominating him the people will again select a great commoner whose great heart is in sympathy with the down-trodden and oppressed. With those who are being deprived of that equal chance which the very spirit ■of our institutions demand. REMEMBER. Every vote counts and each candi- date gets his per centage of the con- vention vote of each county. It is not enough that the county casts a majority vote for your favorite. ,T ... more votes he gets the larger per cent, of the county's vote will be cast for him in the state convention. Go out and vote and see that your neigh- bor goes. This is important. Do not forget it. READ. We call especial attention to the article on the Hogg amendments on the last page of this issue. It Is good reading and furnishes food for se- rious thought. Read Campbell on Homesteads. And see how unjust and uncalled for are the strictures of other candi- dates on that feature of his Athens ...

The Hogg Amendments and Candi- dates for Governor. In 190o, six years after he ceased to be an office-holder, the late Gover- nor James S. Hogg, seeing that there was to be no early relief from the State Legislature against certain man- ifestly great and growing public evils, formulated certain proposed amend- ments to the State Constitution, had these amendments published and went before the people paying his own expenses in a canvass of the state to secure a planlc in the next .state Democratic platform favoring their adoption, and he made speeches •on the subject throughout Texas. A bitter fight was made upon him and upon his amendments by all the pow- ers and influences which it was sought to curb. He won. At the close of the debate, the convention at Waco, by a large majority, adopted his amend- ments as a platform demand, and the Democrats of Texas rejoiced in this rstep towards conquest over the cor- porations and trusts. It was the most critical period in all Governor Hogg's...

For Instance: It Is the duty of the Chief Engineer and the Inspectors under him to count ,#«iil reccive all railroad ties furnished to the com- pany, and to approve the bills and vouchers for same, to jgfs sent in due course to the General Manager for his approval. Now, suppose the Inspector or Roadmaster, through collusion with the contractor, or through mistake, or failure to diligently ptrform their duties, should receive railway ties which do not come up to the require- ments, or should receipt lor nore ties than are delivered. It Wyi'Ul certain- ly not be the duty of the (jf j <>ral Man- ager, when the voucher rnroe to him duly approved by his subordinates for the payment of such ties, to institute a special investigation and so out on the road to where the ties were piled and reinspect and recount them before signing the voucher. This illustration shows the utter foolishness of urging that the General Managor is derelict in his duty in approving vouchers without going ba...
