A...' SOUTHERN MERCURY ANI\ FARMERS UNION PASSWOITO. i r & Jt S WILL GIVE VOTERS MORE POWER A popular reform that can only be pertalnly secured through the refer- endum System. Direct nomination of candidates for public office Is a reform that everyone but the parly bosses and their follow- ers, the party machine politicians, be- lieve in. Yet in only two northern states, Minnesota and Wisconsin, has it been forced upon the politicians by the people. In most of the southern states, however, there is a direct vote at the primaries for candidates and, and in South Carolina and Virginia, .Vnlted States senators are also nomi- nated by popular vote, by instructing the legislature of those states who are to be elected. The Democratic party of Alabama has ordered that at the next primaries the legislature of that state be instructed as to who are the choice of the people to represent that Stale In the I'nited States senate, when the next vacancies occur. There is no doubt that every s...

The meeting lately held at Texarkana was clothed with no autocratic power to make a new organization or to change the old. In no event could its proceedings have had any obligatory effect until they bccame the act of the entire order, regularly and lawfully expressed. Lrnfortunate!v out of that meeting there sprang a movement which, having for its design the complete reorganization vf the order,' has culminated in a bold attempt to supersede and destroy it, without any regard for the sovereignty of its membership, for the requirements of justice and expediency, or for the authority of l...

£ ~"T Honors For \7rtcle SamV Faithful Soldiers THE recent resignation and re- tirement of Lieutenant Gen- eral Adna R. Chaffee as chief of staff and the subsequent promotion to the vacancy of Major General John G.

He organized a good, strong local at county line with 16 charter members the same day. Our local Is just four months old. 45 members and all work- ers. Expect to be 75 strong shortly. All locals should co-operate in buying through the Union. Three cheers to President Calvin and the other offi- cials for enjoining that Mineola out- fit. Pyle and Gresham formerly lived In this county, you see? We want to hear from the locals In other Slates, and especially Alabama, as your scribe lived In that State in the Alli- ance days. The Alabama farmers are also made out of the right kind of metal—tho only trouble Is they don't koow the ring like we of Hunt County.

(• < <5 Snapshots at Spring Fashions For Men IN business dress the effort should always be to present a well groomed appearance. By being conservative in. the selection of the garments he -wears and keeping strictly away from loud patterns and high colorings any man can easily win the reputation which every man of re- finement desires—that of being well dressed. To attain this end it is not necessary to patronize the high class merchant tailor, for the ready to wear garments of today present the newest models and the latest effects in fabrics to be desired at a cost of from one- third to one-half less. Wholesale tailor- ing has now reached the highest point of perfection in fabric, lit and style, and It Is this fact which is rapidly gaining for Americans the reputation of being the best dressed men, as a class, in the world.
