The Election at Laredo.
During last May tho Times pub
lished the Governor's proclamation
tor the holding of an election to oc
cur to-day to vote on certain amend- j
ments proposed by the legislature.
The election was sadly neglected in
Laredo,' no tickets were printed and
no interest taken on it. - The polls
in Wards Nos. 1 3 and -L were open
ed this morning at the appointed
hour and the poll in Watd So $
was not opened at all. The pre'sid
ing officers are 'the same gentlemen
who were appointed by the County
Commissioners at the lastlovember
election. No. 1, Jose Ma-Vela; No
2, J. A. Ortix; No. 3, Emilio Florei;
No. 4, A. Deutz. At three o'clock
not twenty votes nad been cast in
the three polls put together. Lare

It is traced in tho vital fluid
Of millions of the human race,

And curative power is written
Upon the heart, and gravS upon
The minds of thousands

And given good health
When there seemed nothing before
Them but darkness and despair.

From or promoted by impure

There soema no doubt whatever
that all of ffhe amendments voted
upon in Tuesday's election were de
feated. The defeat was probably
-due to a general misunderstanding
ot their nature, "by many and a lack
of interest on the part of others.
Tloweverthat may be, it is greatly
to be regretted that they did not
carry. The development and prog-ess
of West Texas have received a
serious set-back, which may possibly
Fer-fciever m overcome, in the defeat of
the irrigation amendment. It seems
impossible to securo legislation
(which will enable the people-of this
region to establlshlrrigation systems
on a scale sufficient! large to be of
"sneral benefit. As to the imend-
ment to validate the bonds held hyr
fhp. state school fund, the entire
slate will be thefoser by ils defeat.
The defeat of the railway bond
amendment is naturally of the
greatest import to those counties for
whoso benefit it was, intended. 'It
seems hard that narrow minded or
illiberal voters throughout tho stale
should have the power to inflict
such a' hurt upon these counties
which have struggled so long under
the great disadvantage of being
without rail connection. The de
feated amendment was fair in its
provisions and would merely have
given those counties tho right to
decidefor themselves at any time
whether they should incur a limited
indebtedness for tho purpose 'of se
curing -2. railroad.
