"The town of Greenville did not
want prohibition, and went 'wet' by
over "00 majority. The county as
whole went dry by a little over 100,
and hence Greenville's business men
and taxpayers have forced upon them
something thoy do not want. In

"When the several localities which

took no stock In It. It was a propo
sition which affected those localities,
and It was for that people to deter

tion has been ordored. Gainesville

cay so In an emphatic way at tho
polls. Will the Justlce-lovlng citi
