There i food for Thought in
Tho canvass for mayor of Waco
has been warm and vigorous as every
citizen knows, and there are not a few
who are glad the battle is over. There
has been crimination and recrimina
tion on the part of some of the candi
dates, and how the city has escaped
disgraceful fights is a mysiery. The
canvass proper closed last night, or
rather this morning just before day
and at S o'clock this forenoon the
several polls were opened and tho
candidates and their friends got down
to old business, working like trojans
for victory. The News has kept men
at work all day at tho polls closely
observing the progress of the contest
and what they gathered is given be
low in an impartial manner. The
News has endeavored to be fair and
impartal in the canvass and the man
agement believes it has succeeded.
The facts were gathered and reported
as the canvass progressed and no
candidate can charge that this paper
has not treated him fairly. It was the
purpose of The News to allow the
candidates to fight it out in their own
way keeping its columns open to all
alike for advertisements of their claims
when they chose to adopt that method
of reaching the voters. The News
will cheerfully abide the result of the
election today, and whoever is elected
mayor shall have the hearty support
of this paper in his efforts to advance
the best interests of Waco. Follow
ing are the reports from the several
Tho polls wore opened this morn
ing at the city hall promptly at 8
o'clook, with J. H. Torbott, judgo;
A. Alexander, E. P. Massoy, I. josoph
and A. W. Harris olerks.
Tho candidates for alderman of this
ward, George Willig and W. A.
Poago wore on hand and working
fully in their own bohalf .
The principle workers are: Georgo
Crippon, for Goode for mayor and
Poaga for alderman; Georgo V. Davis
for McCullooh for mayor and Poago
for alderman, Sam N alloy, for Mc
Cullooh, Bunk Orman for MoCulIooh;
L. A. Hinobman for Hinchman.
Tho voting was rather slow at first
but soon livoned up and becamo quite
Up to 10 a. m., the time tho first
installment of copy went into the
hands of the printers thero had been

At U p. 111. At the time of going to
press -135 votes have beon cast in this
ward with a strong plurality ooncoded
in favor of McCulloch. As tho day
wanes intorest heightens and votes are
coming in at a lively rate.
At the West Bud up to 10 o'clock
it appeared as' if it was a West End
euro enough. Tho frionds of Judgo
West worb out in full forco and were
confident of carrying tho ward for
him. Largo odds aro given that Mr.
Laoy will oarry tho waru for aldorman.

A notioo was posted at tho Second
warn polls about 10 o'olooh today
which read as follows.
".We, tho judges and olorks of the
Second ward wish to notify all candi
dates that we sometimos eat. A word
to thowise is sufficient." It proved
The judges of this ward aro Messrs.
Harris, West and Lynoh, and the
clerks aro Messrs. Shaw and Pope.
The goneral impression is that
West will oarry tho ward.
At 10 o'olock this morning around
tha Third ward polls, if one should
judge by tho noise being made, there
were only two candidates in tho field
for mayor. Tho workers for Hinchman
and Herbert wore making themselves
heard about equally, and a btranger
would naturally ask, "where wero tbo
other mayorality candidates " This,
howover, did not last all day. At 1
o'clook thero had been 277 votes oast
and it was impossible to toll how tho
respective candidates stood. The
News roportor onquired and found
that oaoh worker was confident his
man was iu tho lead. Tho Third ward
poll was presided ovor by Mr. Charles
Motz with Messrs. M. H.
Standifer and J. R. Bennett,
as judges and Messrs. J. W. MoWil
liams and Smith Powell as clerks. Tho
voting was brisk at that hour and by
2 o'clook thoro had probably been 350
votes cast. One man was challenged
at Third ward and perhaps there wero
others but this is all The News re
porter heard of. It was stated that
the same party voted in the Fourth
ward. If so the matter will probably
he heard from again.
At 3 o'olook 475 votos had been
cast in Third ward and the West men
were very confident.
Tho box has been crowded in tho
Fourth ward all day. Every availablo
space in and around the engine houso
was oooupied by the friends of the
candidates and others anxious to
watch tho progress of the ballot.
At 10:30 this morning 210 vutes
had been deposited and the voting
was progressing rapidly but quiotly.
No disturbance of any kind was had
up to this hour.
At 2 p. m. abmt 5r0 votes hd
beon polled in tho Fourth ward and
tho friends of eaoh oandidate wero
claiming that hG was ahead. It was
impossible to 'orrn anything liko a re
liable prediction as to who was lead
ing but from goneral inquiry every
body was loading.
The Fifth ward poll is presided
over by W. D. Wallace as judge and
J. It. Mobley, Peroy McGhee, T. M.
Mullen and W. II. Turner olerks. All
is quiet on tho oast side and reminds
one moro of Sunday than of election
day with its usual oxoitoment. At 10
a. m., only 20 votos had beon oast,
and ncithor candidates nor workers
were thore. Eist Waoo seems to bo
left to take oaro of herself and it is
impossiblo to form any estimate of
which one of tho oondidates for mayor
Peaoe and quiet has reigned
through the day in this ward up to
this time, 3:45 p. m. but 140 votos
has been oast, with a plurality con
ceded in favor of Horbert with Mo
CulIooh oloso behind him.
