BELL FAVORS'LOCAL OPIION Tie Lamely nc Present tering; Race. Stoff pnoolnl tn NfWX. Marlin, Tex., July by three candidates for Governor, a candl- dnte for the United Stntes Senate and about pounds of barbecued meat, people came1 to Mnrlin todny. bppan to Bather about 10 o'clock., and with much patlenco and cveu fortitude they remained until after B o'clock to give, a hearing to all who had aught to say why ho rather than the other man should have tho coveted office. It was the biggest crowd Marlin has ever had for an occasion of this kind, so it was said by men who had been here a long time, and when It was all "over the rnen of Marlin who had brought It about snid they wero satisfied and even content. They were not all Falls County people; every adjoining county was represented. But while It was a big crowd it manifest- ed little enthusiasm. It showed more in- terest In the barbecued meat than it did In the political speeches. Not that It did not applaud, for now and then It be- came boisterous, but those demonstra- tions were not frequent nor did they seem to bo spontaneous. Tho orators were Senator Bailey, Mr. Colquitt, Judge Brooks and Judge Hon. Travis Dashiell wns here to speak for Mr. Campbell. Mr. Campbell's nama was not on the program and Mr. Dashiell could not get a hearing until after all the others-bad spoken. Then most of the crowd had but Mr. Dashiell, never- theless, made a vigorous speech in behnlf of Mr. Campbell. Aside from tho candi- dates for Governor and Senator Bailey, Judge Storey, who Is a candidate to suo- rl himself HP n of rom- mlssion, was the only other aspirant for State office present. Program JLHanrranffrd. Tho dny had been carefully apportioned as among the various speakers. It was n tended that Senator Bailey should speak from until 12, after which an hour and a half should be given to the multitude to partake of tho bountiful uoata. But, becoming engrossed In his Mr. Ti'nn of and apparently his auditors were also, for when Mr. Bailey concluded the crowd got up from the board benches to discover that. It wnn nearly 1 o'clock. This threw the program askew. It wan Intended that Judge Boll should speak at Mr. Colqultt at nnd Judge Brooks at Hut Tvhrn the covorr-Jgnrj nnd tho the Indies mndf nearly hnlf :ho assemblage- back from (he .ftbles that wnre ladon with tho bnrbrv nort nr-at and gathered vhich mii'lo a kind of background for platform.

It won decided that' only 'nrty-fIvft mlnutofl could bn allowed to ouch of the candidates for Governor with Mr. Cnlqultt and Judgo Tlro.iks fOflf- on thf Mrtnrt, Judge Boll bngan. a fol- man hoMInff the wfttrh on him. -lilla a Urooks man was CahiPt Mr. Colquitt.

Mr. tlifln spoko of his noatro- vt-rfty -fc-lth the President, after wlilrh ho criticiftad the meat Inspection measure gross Imposition on the people In It taxed them to givo a as a certificate of whoies'Jm'eiieW'to'thu'prod" ucts of the packing1 houses. Ho declared that it licensed a monopoly in that tho effect of it might be to Klvo a tremen- dous advantage to the big packers over the smaller ones and 'local butchers. If he had had his way, ho said, he would have enacted that none of their products should bo ccrrlcd In Interstate commerce. This, he said, would have resulted in the establishment of packing houses in every State and thus havo si von the stock- men a competitive market for their cat- tle. Juilffc nemnrhH. When Judge Bell spoke in tho after- noon the crowd wns much smaller thnn thnt which had henrd Mr. Bailey. But It received him cordially, although after one had witnessed lis reception of tho other speakers ho must have been lu eomo doubt ns to the leaning of the majority. closely those which he has heretofore de- livered. Given but forty-five minutes, ho could only refer to some of the larger taHucfl of the campaign. Judpo Boll nnM ho had been prompted to run for Gov- ernor by the belief thnt he could confer a benefit on the- people by correcting some defects In the Inws discovered whilo lie was Attorney General. Ho then merely Alluded to some of tho questions about which ho eald there wns no ftsaen- tlnl difference among the candidates. If elected Governor, said, he would ,io all in his power to have an bill en- ncted. As no ono was advocating tho submission of nn Amendment for State prohibition, ho did not deem that a Ques- tion for consideration. "So fnr ns local option Is ho added, "I am earnestly in favor." Ho then spoke of his service In the Senate in and declared thnt law on that subject laVgefy H omen tend Taxation. Judge Bell ridiculed Mr. Campbell's proposition to exempt homesteads from taxation. "There is a he said, "as to whether wo shall amend our as- sessment laws and see that all property shnll be properly assessed, or whether wo shall adopt a new system and abandon tho system that has obtained all these years and under which our State has grown until It Is tha pride of all of us. I do not claim to be a radical man, but a conservative man willing- to fol- low in the path mudo by the illustrious men of our State. That there ought to bo some amendment our assessment lays is unquestionable. There is no pro- vision by which credits can be properly assessed. I am in favor of mending our assessment Inws so that we shall bo able to tax all the property in our State and when that Is done I am In favor, not of rushing to the adoption of new experi- ments, but of following the rules that have come down to us from an older day. Judge Bell Illustrated somewhat con- cretely what he thought would be the effect if, as Mr. Campbell advocated homesteads should be exempted from tax- "It is he concluded. "It Is so manifestly unjust that many people cnn not believe that a proposition of this ever mads In good faith und in ex- pectation of its being carried out." Judwe Bell concluded his speech by re- ferring to his pnrt In tho enactment of one of the State's anti-trust laws, speak- ing alonp the linos of previous speeches He concluded by remarking that mauv People seemed to be under tfie impression that an Attorney General could on his motion begin proceedings to enforce the criminal part of the anti-trust laws. This, ho snffl. wnfl n tho co-operation of tho District Attor- neys wna necessary. Mr. Colquitt followed Judge Bell Im- mediately. He, WIIH introduced In rather a florid speech by H. W. Bound? ns a mini who did things nnd ns ono won iifly the mantle of the la- mented Rengnn." There wns a wild burnt of applause when Colquitt arose nnd frequently during tho time he spoke, he stlrroil the crowd up lo the yelling point, for Mr. f'nln'iltl spoke with his accustomed bluntness Calriiiltt CrltiulMud ilic Governor. Mr. Colquitt began by criticising- Gov- ernor LanhAm for his Tnilure. as ho al- leged, to stiind firm, Insisting thnt the nclal session of tho Legislature enact bliinkft primary law. After having permitted tho pnpers to announce that ho favored it, Mr. Colquitt thought Govrr- wns liK-xciiHuble in liavinc failed to Insist on it. "Ho throw hlmsolf ithwnrt tho pnth nf tlio people's rtfihtP." Mr. Colquilt exclaimed, and thoro wns loud applause.

WAS A REGULAR PANTOMIME Mrs. Thaw (Elder) and Thaw (Younger) Gave No Slfin ot Ilccognltloju New York, July fol- lowing her interview with her son, Harry, K. Thaw, in the Tombs today, Mrs. Wll- Uarn Thaw assumed full charge of tha defense and arranged to retain the serv- ices as counsel the firm of Black, Olcott, Gruber Boyngne, who were dismissed by young Thaw a few days ago. This action Is taken to mean that Harry Thaw's desires and opinions regarding TVill Tin llance will bo placed on the plea of in- sanity, insistence of which by Mr. Olcott resulted In tho rupture between himself and his client. Whether an application will be made for the appointment of a commission on lunacy to determlno ynunpT Thnw'n mental condition will probably be determined at a conference to be held by Mrs. Thaw and tho coun- sel tomorrow. The meeting between Mrs. Thaw and her son at the Tombs wns an affecting one. After tho first greeting they wero left alone together to converse throuarh, tho bars of the cell for half an hour. During the interview the prisoner's wifo stood In silence in the corridor a few feet away from the coll door watting her turn to spenk with her husband. No words were exchanged between Mrs. Thaw and her From the Tombs, Mrs. Thaw was driven directly to tho office of Ixtnln Dolafleld, where iirranscmcnts wero resume charge of the case. When a noto wns sent to Harry Thaw this afternoon -nsklng: whether he concurred In the now arrangement the reply returned was, "Mr. Thaw has nothing to say." This tivmilng Mrs. Thaw, accompanied by her son, Joseph, and her son-in-law, George L. Carnegie, went to the letter's county at Roslyn, Long Island. Mrs. Hurry K. Thaw arrived ut tha Tombs this morning in advance of Mrs. William Thaw, but in order, she said, that the latter might have the first op- portunity to seo the prisoner, retired to the consulting room when she ascertain- yet visittvj the Tombs. An wns made by Thaw's new counsel, Clifford W. Hartridge, to ar- range that Mrs. William Thaw coukl meet Thaw In the consulting room, but is wus not (successful. Tho mother reached the prison s.hortl> bnfore noon. In the meantime a larga crowd hnd gathered about the entrance to the prison. When her cab stopped at the door the bystanders pressed forward, so closely that the police had difficulty In making- a line through them to permit Mrs. Thaw to pass Into the prison. Mrs. Thaw wus met at the door by tho prison warden, who told her, in nn npolo- geUo way, that It would be necessary for her to comply with the prison rule, that all visitors must be searched. Mrs. Tlmw then retired to the room of the Tombs matron, where the was com- plied with. The warden, Josiah C, Thaw and Mrs. escorted her to the corridor in which Hurry That's cell U located, and then withdrew she had thanked them. Mrs. Thaw then made her way alone to cell No. 230 and greet- ed her son for the first time since lie shot Stanford White. As Mrs. Thaw reached the cell of her son. it was seen that her daughter-in- law had left tho consulting room, and gone to the coll of her husband. -When the young wife saw tho mother ap- proaching' she slowly backed away from the cell to a spot some fifteen feet down the corridor. There was no sign of rec- ognition between Uie two. On the moth- er's arrival at the cell the keeper, John Smith, saw that she was somewhat foeblo and opened tho door of Thaw's cell for the purpose of getting out the stool from tho coll, on which she might sit durins the interview with her son. The moth- er, not knowlnpr the rules of the prison, upon HeoiiiK door opened, rushed, for- w.irJ to her son. In nn Instant her firms wore clasped n round the neck of her son, while he with bent head clnspod his rnnth'-r to hlfl bfefipt. Tonrs stream- ed from tho eyes of both mother and son. There ensued a few minutes' silence, broken only by tho mother's cry of: "My boy, my boy."
