Why EI Pasoans Are Excluded
The Herald excludes residents of this city and suburbs from this con
test for the reason' that it would be manifestly impossible for an out of
town contestant to compete with a local contestant on even terms. The
Herald reaches nine out of eycry ten of the homes in this city and it
would be comparatively easy work for an El Pasoan to pile up an im
mense vote by merely collecting in advance the subscriptions in his im
mediate neighborhood. Eor this reason El Paso candidates are not al
lowed to compete and no votes are allowed on subscriptions taken in El
Paso and El Paso suburbs.
