It ls barely possible thnt tho re

jority returned by Franklin county
and received yesterday for these
i'.mendmentF. together wlth a sub

reduced the majority against thc
amendments as to cities to 506. An?
other such vote ns Franklln's, comlng
from the adjoinlns county of Patrlck,
would wlpe thls out. However, il i;
probable that this amendment ha;
