Walter Zimmerman of Timpson, as- sisted by Kev. WhUeliurst, our local Meth- odist preacher. The sensation Is due to the plain language and defiant manner used by the preacher in denouncing the many terms of sjn. His style may well be compared to that or Sam Jones in EO far as words are concerned. He uses many of the very same kind of tt-ords and sentences. After the services last during which he lambasted men ana women, be- fore a large mixed congregation, in severe terms for forms of sin that arc seldom re- ferred to In the pulpit, he and his wife re- tired at Mr. Peevey's, near rhe church. Not long after tlieir room was stoned or brick- battcfl antl pelted wilh a number ot eggs. Hie parties who did this are not known but they ire supposed to be thoughtless boys or rowdies of some kind, and nuL by any solid citizen. Tho morals of this town arc insulted by this conduct, which is universally condemned and regretted. Payment In Gold. Taylor, Williams-.n to., Tex., Aug.

That party has had some- what of a hard time, aa hard times are considered by the world generally. Unlike the great governor of our state, it was not born in. a storm, but came in on the breeze which presaged tho storm. It iias been the butt of ridicule." Its members have been scoffed at. Its tenets have been laughed at, signed at, and thtin profoundly thought- over. But it has the honor cO being respected, not tb say feared, by the dominant party In the state, and its alli- ance has sought by both parties, ld as aro Itfi drcnmsj and they are as. wild as the. veriest nightmare, the demo- rats who have contrplled national af- fairs have liearkfaned to ihtm and adopted many of t.hein. Crude as .are their Ideas, thit great-old the republi- can party; haa sought .-an alliance as !far as national affaire are concerned. So the populist '-whatever .may have been its vagaries! will have the consolation, in Texas at least, of having zncdo the tl parties knuckle io it. The democratic party has gone to its knees for those votes which had either gone or promised to go to Uie populist party. The republi- cans have done less In the way of degrada- tion. Ii. has not c( needed a principle, as have the but they have offered to trade in the matter of offices with those whom In other states they .declare to be the greatest enemies to a republican form government. The democrats at Chicago announced doctrine and voted for principles that were thoroughly antagonistic to every democrat- ic Idea. They did It to court the votes of this .large, watery-jointed and idiotic giant. The republicans, with much ado, denounced this Jabberwock, and forthwith trade with it for votes In Texas and elsewhere. Both, the old parties thought that the nftw parts', the Jabberwock, was mean by thlr, that they thought it to be of so much life and blood and enthusiasm :hat it was uncontrollable. Jones of Ar- kansas, Quay of Pennsylvania believed It, and they ai'o people, on word. Muybe the bone and sinew of tho now ele- ment is enthusiastic and intense. But all Uie leaders of the two parties forgot one thing, and that Is that the leaders in the new party in some time in the past be- longed to the old parties. There are demo- crats in the populist party who learned their trado from Jones. There are those in the same party who learned their bust- 'nosa from Quay. They were not success- .ful In either of tho old parties, probably because there were so many ambitious men, but they remained In them long enough to learn all the tricks of the. po- litical tradu. It is not to be supposed that even If they had suddenly experienced a change of heart and were "for the that they would forget their old habits. Surely the proceedings of the convention of the "people." whfch closed Jls labors yesterday, ought to convince the leaders of the old parties that they have a hard lot to deal with. The proceedings of the "meotln' ought to convince the old stag- ers Hn the two parties that they have gen- uine politicians to deal with. There were something in the- neighbor- hood of a thousand delegates of this new party here. They were a one-Iuea crowd. They came here to utter defiances against the world. They did It the first and sec- ond day. Yesterday afternoon tho "meet- as they are pleased to call It, ad- journed, and left its whole affairs in the hands of the men who have been, politi- cians in the ilwnourauc party. And those to whom the matter was left aro out for a trade. They have consummated It with the republicans, and huve only one more element to deal wl'.h. That is jyol-3 thj- ment. What the latter designated filtnu-ni will do remains to be soon, and until this is done no one should speak, other tlmn to say that tlic politicians of the republi- can uoriy who control are in thorough agreement with tho populist polhiclans who control, and tho proposition Is or will be miidc- to tha gold bug politician, who Is expected tn control, looking to ono thing, the overthrow of that element in ihe fllato which, under a common banner, has all the elements to be found in true re- p'ablicaniam, true democracy or true papu- racy Is loved in the state. WELL KXIflC'UTJBD. Leaders Hud u Hard Time Holdtas Themselves in lint Did It. It wao a hard hardest they have ever the populist lead- ers won and .the convention adjourned without any official declaration that Texas would have none of Bryan, A dozen times -has It appeared that the convention was getting beyond their con- trol and en each occasion it has seemed that nothing could stop the offering and adoption of a resolution that "No Watson, no Jlryan" the unanimous of Texas populism. Hut by hook and 'by crook they kept it down. Fair v.-ords to thfs, persuason on that, promises to an- other ami threats for a fourth, man have kept it down. But it.was a hard-fight. Not a smoother piece of political engineering has ever done .in Texas by .any set. of politicians. The rank and file were told day after day 'of what was. going on, but the very sus- picions aroused, by these '-warnings .were adroitly turned..into1 suspicions of those who gave them warning. 'The' most radical of the middle of the road-men were ram- pant at first to declare thenfeeives straight out when they came here. "comether" was put on them aiid-they became the most conservative ard were .made converts to the plans of the lead.ers atd aided In carrying them out without knowing 'what .they were. They didn't ask vrhoi they were. Once they were persuaded that their suspicions of the leaders were without foundation, they blindly followed their-lead again with- out stopping to see where-.'It would land them. They know they dld't want Bryan and when assumed that they would not have to take him they ask who they were going to get, didn't insist that they should have a straight populist national ticket, didn't demand that the commftte-e which to manage that matter'for them should be instructed as to who to put up. They did none of these tilings. What they did do was to go among their brother delegates with the glad tidings that Texas was still in the middle of the road and Bryan would not receive i'.ny elec- tors by the aid of 'Texas popull.sts. And the good news spread and. spread and soc-n delegates who.had stayed in the convention to see that Tezcns did so on record In the matter stayed, there to see that no such declaration was made. The little leaders didn't know much about it, but they v.-ere told what to do did it well. So the Texas1 populist f-'_-te convention, which assembled with a whoop for "No Watson, no Bryan" on tbe outside of the hall, stayed in session four long days at spake not a word on the question which evary one of the rank and file thought would be tho mainspring; of the whole convention. The floor managers were Jenkins of Brown, Harry Tracy and- Bentley of Taylor, They deserve much credit fpr the work they did. They were not the planners. They eze- ruled i he plans.

For the present, let those who will still the populists of Texas will vote for Bryan and be glad to do so, but 1 assure vosi the "crown of thorns" which alien bunds have placed on the brow of populism will be worn by populists of only BO lonir as the' same polluted tmmls to presQ It down. Some day the conscious blut'h of self-reproach whHi now crimsons the fair face or w.Ml b0 chased uwny by the smiles of co'..ac-lous Innocence and -celr-rf- spect. The old guard, with new recruits, will close In around her dearly beloved pop- ulism and her from any polluting touch. We may support he ac- cepts our It will not be to us n labor ot love long as democrats fail or refuse to vote for Thomas E. U. M. REEDY. Reedy was told-that his resolutions would be sent to thu platform, anj then he agreinl to a substitute for res- olutions. Friday night Chairrnar Jenkins was told on the platform that Reedy had consented to the pigeon-holing of his reso- lutions. This was said without any ap- parent attempt at concealment '.vithin plain of the repoiters' table. But they Jon't put down everything they hear, so it didn't appear In any of the daily papers yesterday. Mr. Reedy told The News-man that he never consented to a -jigeon-holing Friday nit'ht and would not Saturday had he not been assured that he was-working against the Interest, of the populist party. The effect of that assurance may be seeir in his note. Mr.- Reedy In his -resolutions represented the rank and file of Texas populist dele- gates when they came to Galveston: his note represents the rp.nk and file of Texas populist delegates when they left Galves- ton. Just how the fusion is to he brought about none but on the inside can tell, and they won't. The situation is.: The republicans stand no show of carrying Texas for McKInley without populist and sound money sup- port: the populists stand no .chance 01' electing their state ticket money democrat and republican support; the sound money democrats want-free sti- ver defea-ted advocates of free-sil- ver can bide their'time for other things: the. populists feel that they can get the sound menoy democratic vote for state officials without having to give in return, if.they stick to-it'tha't trade, but they are not BO-sure about the republican have 'no such grounds for thinking they are -going to-get it. Then the populist, leaders are working heart and.'eoul.l'or the election of ihts.state ticket: ere- aS-'hard-.-to-'seyure .the electoral ;Ergo, each' needs the other. The.'next question Is. can they deliver 'ine And tlie answer is thnt they can deliver enough make their -promise The republicans can be delivered, -because they are well; organized, and; un- derstanding their them to attain tne results.they afo'nfter. A great majority of the populists hate anything with the tag of democrat to It; that's one reason. Most of iham were desi- ocrats before they were and they had some reason for quitting thV democrats which is as potent In keeping, them Inxm voting for a demoernf as It was in making them quit the party: that's another reason. They feel aggrieved at the state free silver democrats for stealing their cam.paij.Ti tnun- der, and at the national free silver demo- crats for the same reason; that's a third i-eaEon. .They Bryan and his.fel- low democrats have not treated'them with. dignity, but more like they were1 of only small consequence, thus hurting ,their .party pride: -.vhlch constitutes a fourth reason'. And the fifth is by no means smaller than the others: They see no great chance to "get any offices by voting for Bryan, or even for Norton, and they do see a chance (which they regard in light of a certainty) of getting the state offices by giving- their votes for AlcKinley electors. Perhaps this last, reason Is a bit prema- ture, but it will be in full force and effect before the month js out. That's the situation. Only one thing can result from such a and that Is fusion. Th'.: It.iiiers kept down any resolutions for fear they would have the effect of prevent- ing the appointment of a committee.to man- age matters without instructions of the convention tying them down. Jt was the SL'ntlrnent which actuated, not the words of the resolutions. That had to be kepi un- der. Well, the committee was appointed to manage the Texas campaign, and the mem- bers of it are KOlng in to select the stata ticket. The committee is headed by Harry Tracy.

Stump Ash by campaigned all the morning for Jack Elgin of Rockporu who managed Ben Terrell's congressional campaign two years ago un- til Terrell withdrew, and then managed for Weldvj.Ti. Elgin made a Rood showing for what can be done by fusion and he was to have been another show. Every one felt certain of his election until near the close of the second ballot, and then it was srpn ho was beaten and wlt-hdrew. The News man was assured that it had rio signlticance- whatever and was simply a mailer of taste. It's not said here that it did have any such signiticanc'j, but it eertainjy looked that way. The feel proud of their state ticket and after they once get Into line they are going to for it. The leaders (most of them nominees for eltlic-r state or congressional officer) are going to work for It from the ?tart. The first and one of the principal tasks is to cet the rajik and file into line, and hove been working1 for five days at. least. The News concluded its leader yesterday with the following, and It is a very lit con- clusion for to-day, so it Is repeated: "And to the campaign coir.mittea will be left Ihe details of the trade with the re- publicans. They will b-.1 arranged. Let no one doubt this. If the schome goes through. The details are not known. They are not made up.
