Is about divided, but of the demo
cratic voto Dickinson is receiving
three out of every four and will carry
the city by a handsome majority.
THE HOT FIGHT
is in the Third and fourth wards. The
Second and First wards will poll very
large Mills majorities but there is a
strong fight in the two other wards on
the west side. In the third ward near
ly all the members of the union labor
nartv vote, and the vote of that ward
will show nearly the whole strength of
the union labor party in this city, in
the city election in April Wheelan, who
was the labor candidate, received 200
votes out of more than 500 cast, and
every knight of labor voted for him,
but Jones cannot carry the knights of
labor vote, for some of Mill's best
friends in the city belong to that or
der, and are doing all they can for him.
The vote no doubt in this ward will
be very close, but experienced ward
workers" who have manipulated votes
there for five jears, say the ward will
go for Mills.
THE IILACK WARD.
The fourth ward is the home of the
colored man. Here is where his
chuckles are located and where his
secret political meetings are held.
There is a large belt down Waco
creek dotted with small frame houses
in which from ten to forty negroes
live. They held a secret meeting
last night in the ward and swore to
stand by Jones for congress, Harrison
for president, and the union labor can
didates for county and state offices,
and to-day they are voting that way
in solid phalanxes, although a strag
cler here and there wanes up and
votes lor Mills against the protest of
about a hundred of his race, who
hang around the polls to prevent any
defection. At the last city election
there were 198 votes rast in the ward
for Westbrook, the colored man who
ran for alderman, while the white can
didate. Forseard. received 272. If
Jones carries any ward in town he
will probably carry this.
An imposing scene was witnessed
at the Second ward this morning when
a buggy drove up with two men. One
was a young man in the full strength
of manhood while the head of the
other was whitened by the snow of
many winters. The son, with the ten
derest care, helped his father, who is
almost blind, to get out the buggy and
go to the polls where they voted the
straight democratic ticket. The old
man was Major Geo. B.Erath, that
noble pioneer of Texas. Another in
stance was that of Mr, Frank P. Cra
vens, who came all the way from
Houston, and taking upon his arm
his father, Rev. N. A. Cravens, one of
pioneers of Methodism in Xexas,
they walked upto the polls and voted
for Cleveland and Roger Q Mills.
"a good joke"
was perpetrated by tho boys ubout
noon. Thoy found an old horse who
was so thin that ids ribs almost burst
through his skin. His head hung
down almost to the earth, and his
hind logs wore so stiff that ho could
