Texaa After Bailey's Scalp.
Houston, Texas, May 1. Whether
United State Senator J. W. Bailey
ahall be sent to Denver as one of the
delegatea at large from Texas Is the
question to be determined at primar
ies to be held throughout the state to
morrow. The fight between the Bal.
leyltes and the antl-Balleyttes has
been the moat momentoua polltcal
struggle since the rcpubllo of Texas
entered the Union, and has been con
tested by both sides. Senator Bailey
has been speaking almost constantly
for weeks and hss made an almost
superhuman effort to maintain hi
threatened political supremacy In
The fight against Bailey began with
the airing of chargea that he had been
In the employ and had received large
urns of money from the Waters-
Pierce Oil company, a branch of the
Standard Oil company, which the state
officials were attempting to oust from
Texas on the ground thnt It had vlo
latcd the anti-trust law. .
Tomorrow's primaries will be a life
and death fight for Bailey, politically
speaking. While he was elected to
the senate for. Another six-year term
only g year ago, It Is mlmtlted by his
eolRcm friend that hi defeat In the
prexent content would ' be equivalent
to a demand for hi resignation, in
his piilille slilreni at the time his
election to the senate was pending, ho
eitld that If a majority of the demo
erst of the state hould declare them
selves a opposed to him In primary,
he would resign hi oat. The men
