R B. WELLS. JR
THE M E W CHAIRMAN.
In the selection of Sam Mass-
ingale for chairman of the Cen-
tral Committee the choice is an
exceedingly fortunate one for
the Committee. Sam is very
popular, is adroit, resourceful
and pushing. His experience and
wide acquaintence admirably
qualify him t > bring about the
very best results for the party.
8 im wanted to' decline and give
the position to someone outside
the county seat, but so decided
wa* th* sentiment for him th it
they ehctwd him and allowed him
to make hi* speech afterward.
Char.ey Murrell, the retiring
chairman ha* been remarkably
auccessful, keeping the party iu
harmony and turns the work over
to his successor with no break."
J B MERRILL
In our announcement column
appears the announcement of our
fellow townsman, R. B. Wells,
Jr.. who will stand for the nomin-
ation of Register of Deeds at the
coming democratic primary.
Littje that we can say will be
new to our readers who, most of
them, know Mr. Wells personal-
ly. He is one of the "old timers"
speaking in the vernacular, who
came here in the early dajs—very
early days—in fact the first days.
He has always been identified
with the democracy. He has held
the office of assistant register of
deeds and assistant treasurer of
this county and is, therefore,
acquainted with the records of
the office which he seeks to fill.
He has never filled any elective
office, except that of township or
city clerk. He will be remember-
as having made the race four
years ago against the present
register of deeds and came with-
in three votes of securing
nomination. He enters the race
with a large acquaintance and
many strong supporters.
mission and was admitted to
practice before the Supreme
court. After his admission he
formed a partnership with Mr.
Ma«singale under the firm style
of Massingale & Shean and since
has been in active and continued
practice. He ha« charge of the
probate business of his firm, con-
sequently has had as much busi-
ness in this particular line as any
lawyer at the bar during this
time. Mr. Shean is a young man
of examplary habits. He is a
christian gentleman and an active
worker in the Sunday school, be-
ing now the president of tbe coun-
ty association. He is a promin-
ent and enthusiastic Woodman,
and is always to be found at their
rallys. As a lawyer he is among
the best known young men of the
southwest, studious, painstaking
and successful in his practice.
He is possessed of a, judicial tem-
perament and is well fitted to
carry on and keep the records of
this important office in proper
shape, a very essential requisite
in the incumbent of this office.
JAMES L AUSTIN
L ROT SHEAN.
The subj« ct of these remarks
has authorized the announcement
of his candidacy for the nomina-
tion of K« gister of Deeds, subject
to the coming democratic pri-
mary. He is not unknown to the
people of the county, to many he
is better known than to us, but
in all the county there is, perhsp-,
no mau who has a better standing
among his home people. He is
democratic in all things. There
is nothing about his makeup that
is not common and plaio. In
manner as weil as in politics h
is thoroughly democratic. He is
a farmer but not a land owner,
bis landed possessions consisting
of an Indian lease. He is a
Georgian by birth. He was edu
cated in the common schools of
his native state, his final studies
being in the high school at Bow-
den. He taught school for
while in that state, but when a
young man went with his fathor
to Alabama in search of gold and
remained there until he came to
this country in 1898. He settled
in tbe vicinity of Oakdale and has
reyide.i there ever since. He has
beld many minor positions in his
'township, having been deputy as-
a®esor and has been for two terms
(teustee of Oakdale township. He
« de the race four years ago for
(•ounty assessor and was beaten
only (en votea. Ha m clever
tor the office of Probate Judge
there has so far been no other
name seriously nienti ned, except
that of Mr. Shean. Roy, as he is
known all over the county, wa*>
born in Michigan, but at th« eariy
Mge of five was taken to Texas by
his parents, where he was educat-
ed in the common schools, finish-
ing at the Chico Institute. Roy
is a self made man, having work-
ed at the forge for a livelihood
until securing sufficient education I
to pa?s an examination to teach
school, when he pursued this
profession, interspersing his du-
ties as teacher with reading law.
He read law in this manner until
1902 when he entered the law of-
fice of Senator Massingale, where
he continued his studies uninter-
ruptedly until June 1903 wuen he

In presenting the name of Mr.
Austin to the democratic voters
of \\ a<*hita county, we name the
second of the successful teachers
the >°f th« county for the nomination
of register of Deeds.
Mr. Austin is a native of Ten-
nessee where he received his edu-
cation in the common schools and
Judge Rutherford Brett this
week announces himself as candi-
date for the nomination for
County Attorney, subject to the
democratic primary. Judge Brett
is a thorough democrat and one
of the leading lawyers of Washita
county, thoroughly honest and a
man in every way worthy of the
confidence of the people of the
county. He was born in Wilson
county, Tennessee, near the little
village of Mt. Juliett, where he
attended the country Schools at
intervals until he was 14 years
old, when he lost both father and
mother. He was then thrown en-
tirely upon his own resources and
worked on the farm till he reach-
ed the age of 19, when he enter-
ed school and by hard work and
rigid economy obtained an edu-
cation, finishing his course at
Cumberland University, Leban-
on, Tenn. There are few men,
perhaps, who are more self-made
than Judge Brett. He is very
modest and quiet yet self-confi-
dent and determined, and when
he decided t« come west Gov.
Benton McMillan of Tennessee
and other leading men of the
state volunteered to give him let-
ters of recommendation, which
he accepted and now has, but
feeling that his own life and con-
duct would be the best recom-
mendation to the people of Washi-
ta county, he has only exhibited
the e letters to a few friends, and
deal" if he be the nominee.
W. H. BILLS.
The name of Mr. Bills is pri-
son ted to the public this week i
connection with the office of
Register of Deeds. Mr. Bills ha*
been prominently before the pub-
lic for the past several years. Ha
made the race two years ago and
won the nomination for county
commissioner for this, the third,
district and was elected by a hand-
some majority. He is now serv-
ing the people in that capacity,
and has made an excellent record
as an administrative official.
Mr. Bills is a native of Missis-
sippi but migrated to*Texas soon
after arriving at bis majority,
where he lived until coming to
Washita csunty in 1896. He is
ruggedly honest, capable and, If
chosen to represent the democacy
on the ticket this fall for this of-
fice, make an excellent race. He
is eminently well qualified for the
position he seeks. He is an ao-
