Ci.RiuiKNK. Texas, Dec. 12. Speak
ing of Texas politics, we have to note
with very painful regret tne ,vun
drawal of our great leader, Judge T. L,
Nugent, irom active politics.
Judge Nugent ha led such an irre
nroachablelife here that whatever hi
nays is accepted as truth by all, and
vt-rv few men are known who have such
vivid conceptions of political truths as
has Thomas L. Nugent.
We suppose we shall have to say that
he will not be on our ticnei next year
as he has withdrawn for failing health
and we have good reason to think this
will not return in time for him to lead
us to victory.
In view of the above facts, all eyes
are now turned to Maj. Jerome 'C.
Kearby,of Dallas, as our candidate for
governor next year. He is very able,
is honest, a great lawyer; he has all the
courage of his convictions, and wields
an influence which threatens Texas
Democracy with annihilation.

The Southern Railway Company, as
everybody know:), his absorbed every
branch line of road in the country upon
which the management could get their
hands. One after another the lines for

to any legislation in favor of remoneti
zation, and one by one I he leading
newspapers of the Itepnbliean party
became unfavorable to silvcr. In Con
gress the opposition to silver came
principally from the Republican party
and a few Eastern Democrats. The ad
ministration of I'resident Hayes, with
wr. Nnerman at the head of the Treas
ury Department, was active in oppos-
nguivir, anu wiicn a eiiver bill, in
troduced by Mr. I'.land. passed the
louse of Representatives by an over
whelming majority it was mutilated
n the Senate by what is known as the
Allison amendment, which made it a
silver purchasing act instead of a free
coinage act. The Democratic party as
a whole, was at that time and ever af
ter, until Mr. Cleveland's
a free coinage party. In 1831 the plat-
rorm oi the Democratic party upon
which Mr. Cleveland was elected con
tained the following declaration :
Wo neueve in nonest money, the cold
an.l silver coinage of the Constitution, and
a circulating medium convertible into such
money without loss."
Isut Mr. Cleveland after hi3 election
turned out to be a most violent oppo
nent of silver and a
the money powers. In 18X8 the
DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION WAS SILENT
on the silver question, and the Repub
lican National Convention adopted
the following plank with regard to sil
"The Republican party is in favor of the
use of both cold and silver as money, and
condemns the iolicy of the Democratic ad
ministration in its etlorts to demonetize silver."
Uut President Hiirrison s adminis
tration wasas hostile tosilver as that of
his immediate predecessor. In 1892
both parties straddled, and Mr. Cleve
land was elected because Mr. Harrison
was an object lesson of the gold stand
ard in the White House and attracted
more attention on that account than
his opponent, who was then in private
lire. It was a slow race, minion
voted for Weaver, and another million
or two stayed away from the polls. But
Harrison succeeded in disgusting more
men than Cleveland, because his mis
con due was
MORE RECENT AND FRESH
in the minds of the voters. Mr. Cleve
land had succeeded in organizing in
the Democratic party a strong, ajnrres
sive cold party. The banks are with
him, the commercial press is with him,
the Northeastern uemocrais are wan
him, and he has divided the Democratic
party and secured, so far as tne govern
ment of the party is concerned, more
than one-half of it. In the last expres
sion of opinion of the Democrats north
of the Ohio and east of the Mississippi,
as manifested by convention, gives the
cold men nearly one-hair or tne juec
toral College. With Kentucky and
Alabama and the Western States, such
as Kansas and Nebraska, the Dakotas
and Orecron. where there is no Demo

have the delegates to the convention.
With tbe thousands or banks, me com

cracy. I had hoped that tbe Southern
leaders who are silver men would have
AS BOLD AND DEFIANT

and would have set tbe pace for a cam
paign in favor of the restoration of sil
ver; but inasmuch as they have not
done so there is no hope except in inde
pendent action, and as true as the sun
rises and sets, such independent action
will come. The Populists, whose hearts
are with the people, as their name in
dicates, the silverites who are opposed
to English rule, and all natriotic Amer
icans who believe in constitutional
government and a sufficient volume of
money to stop the fall of prices, to
revive business will unite, aud there is
