Prohibition In Texas.
Dallas, Texas, Joly 21.-A tidal
wave of liquor prohibition is sweeping
over Texas. One hundred and thirty
eonnties have voted total prohibition
and fifty-nine others have partial pro*
hibition-that is, the country pre*
oinots are prohibition, and in the
larger towns only, like Dallas and
Fort Worth, is the sale of liquor per
mitted. This leaves only fifty-seven
oonnties in whioh liquor is sold unre
stricted by any sub-divisional lines.
Most of these are the sparsely settled
border and panhandle counties. Ful
ly four-fifths of the population of the
State is living under the jurisdiction
of the kcal option law.
Haifa dosen more large counties
aro to hold elections within the next
thirty days. It looks as if most of
them will go for prohibition. The
Prohibitionists ?ithin the Democratic
party are organising a campaign to
elect a Prohibition majority in tba
Legislature to be chosen next year,
in order that an absolute prohibition
amendment to the State Constitution
may be submitted to a vote of the
people of the State in a special elec
tion in 1905.
Governor Lanham is a strong Pro
hibitionist and is being looked to to
help the movement along.-Chicago
