that a democrat Wiseman to the should he placed in the senate of the United States He boasted of Mr Sheppard as a product of the University of texas and praised him as a progressive who stands for the

of qolonel R M Johnston put him in nomination for the short term In the senate declaring that he should have unanimous approval of all senators In doing so because of Colo nel Johnstonslong party loyalty and the governors appointment should be readily ratified He declared that some senators were from voting for Colonel Johnston against their own idea of propriety simply because of the pro hibition question He insisted that the prohibition question simply confuses debauches every question of pub lic consideration and banishes candor and justice Senator Warren seconded the Shep nomination and Senator Watson the Johnston nomination Senator Townsend terms Morris Sheppard a Woodrow Wilson democrat from Bast Texas whom he would support John Henry Kirby in nominating Colonel

States senator has been returned to the people to be he stowed upon the man of their choice A few minutes previously Colonel Wortham of Fort Worth had declured that we will see the day when the people of Texas will the action of the hour in slapping Governor Col quit in the face Mr Rogers followed his answer by saying that this Is probably the last time in the history of Texas when the I legislature will have an opportunity to make the selection of a United States senator referring to the growth of the sentiment in favor ot the elec tion by a direct vote of the people Mr Rogers created another demonstration when in closing his spoecli in behalf of Mr Sheppard he declared that the man from Texarkaua not sell the truth to serve the hour There was a feeble effort on the part of some of the members of the house to create a demonstration at the mention of Senator Baileys name in the house His name was scarcely mentioned in the senate Following the excitement of the vote the galler ies were cleared and both houses pro ceeded to the selection of Shep pard for the long term It was quick ly made unanimous In the senate but the house was obliged to listen to more oratory
