WHAT THE ACTING CLERK SAYS.
"In regard tp the question of Dr.
Green Clay Smith aiding Senator
Call's candidacy in Florida, I would
t say that he j never had such a
thought in his mind. I have been
intimate withl)r. Smith for years,
and was with bim during his last
sickness, and by his request I had
full charge of his funeral services

Washington, D. C, Sept. 3, 1895.
EDITOR CRANFILL SPEAKS.
j. Know tnat tne statement Sen Senator
ator Senator Call makes concerning Dr.
Green Clay Smith is false in toto.
' Dr. Smith was a member of the
prohibition party and could not
under any circumstances have
championed the candidacy of a
whisky drinker for any office. You
are at liberty to publish this per personal

say something more about the mat matter

Editor Texas Baptist Standard.
Waco, Ttxas, Sept. 2, 1895.
This speaks for itself, and shows
that Mr. Call will even stoop to
defame the character of the dead
to delude the "dear people" and
keep himself in jffvce.

long wilt thou have to suffer mis misrepresentation

hands of political corruptionists

Florida citizenship is above the av average

Our Little Sister.
We unhesitatingly declare our
sympathy for the Island of Cuba
in her present struggle for freedom
drom her Spanish master. There
is nothing reasonable in the de demand
mand demand of the far-away effete nation
apart from downright slavery, and
if slavery is reasonable we all have
reason to be untaught what we es esteem
teem esteem a most valuable lesson. Cuba
is capable of being its own ruler.
From time, almost immemorial col colonies
onies colonies when capable of self govern government
ment government have thrown off the galling
yoke of the mother government,
and every reasonable man feels the
justice of such a cause. Our own
struggle for freedom is nov so far
in the past as to make us forget
our little sister in her patriotic
effort. And why should we? Of
all the governments under the sun
which Americans delight to honor
next to their own, France comes
first. And among ail the patriots
of France, we love Lafayette most.
Along with Wasbincton, Putnam,
Greene, Richard Henry Lee and
others who fought in the war of
the Revolution, this liberty-loving
French patriot is esteemed and
loved. His name shall be in the
hearts 01 our cnildren as lone: as
u. n A j
our republic exists. And if we
honor those who assisted us in the
hour of our trial, what miscreants
are we if we faU to sympathize
with little Cuba now or if we
should fail to recognize her declara declaration
tion declaration of independence? As a mat matter
ter matter of course our treaty with Spain
must be respected; but let our gov government
ernment government be careful not to aid in
the least the iron hand at the
throat of our plucky little neigh
bor. Why should not
friends assist their relatives and
friends on Cuban soil? United
States war ships which patrol the
Cuban coasts need to keep on the
side of wisdom in this matter.
