Says the Whole Southwest
Country is Afire With Dem-
Judge Thomas J. Lowe treasurer ot
tho Democratic territorial campaign
commtt'.e arrived home this morning
from a week's tour of the southwest
"Things up here aro slow in a poli-
tical way." said tho Judgtf but tho
southwest is afire with enthusiasm
for Democratic success. Every town
I vbltod the people regardless ot
party wore talking Mathews. When
McGulre reached Oranlto and drovo
up town with his lieutenant Deputy
Molllter he received a frost."
At Manguin in three hours Judge
Lowe received $1300 In castt subecrip-
J thins to the Mnthowa campaign fund.
At Granite he wns handed $122.59 In
In most places contributions
were forthcoming as soon as- the fact
became- known that the territorial i
campaign treasurer was in town.
"One of the best workers In tho
south wo4t Is Tom Lawrence ot Man-
gum" said Judge- Lowe. "Ho was
wl'h me several days. Ono thing
noticeable In the pouthwept" contin-
ued ludjre Lowe "Is the feeling among
thq Republicans. They are all
Mnthowa supporters. They say they
want a shrewd capable honest man
In congress and they Know tkat
Mathews is all that. I talked with BO
Republicans and all we're warm in
their advocacy ot Mathews. At Law-
ton the Democratic harmony Is grati-
fying: the samo Is true at Hohart and
Anadarko. I am conservative In my
palmate when I say that Mathews
win go to '.he Hock Island road with
8600 majority "
Trior to his southwestern trip. Judge
Lowe was purJed as to the final out-
cotio Now he Is enthusiastic and
Jubilant. The Jitlgu has always been
considered "me of tho mo3t conserva-
tive Democrats in the territory. He
posoflsor discernment nna-keen Judg
ment and makes no wild statements
His enthusiasm at this time is certain-
ly pleasing. The Judge wants no of-
fice nnd usks no favors at the hands of
ihe Democratic party. Having no ax
to grind he can express opinions and
interpret what is told him without
color or glamor. Jttdgo Lowo say.s
without equivocation that Mathews
will be elected by ao.'OOO majority. His
statement can be relied on.
