Wasting Time at Austin.
The prohibition question is tak
ing up so much time of the Spec
ial session of the legislature at
Austin that the time limit is apt to
he up before the work is done for
which the special session was call
ed. Doth sides of the question
are playing politics and building
fences for future use. The pras
have charged that illegal and frau
dulcnt votes were cast on July 22
and the campaign committee and
pro members of the legislature are
demanding an investigation and
Gov. Colquitt seems to be anxious
for an investigation and
offers', to ' employ Cone Johnson
to conduct it and calls upon
Chairman Ball to furnish proof.
Now, Col. Hall and his committee
claim to he in possession of evi
dence of illegal voting but they
will probably decline to place it
in the hands of the antis till the
proper time. There are thousands
of good citizens pro and anti, who
believe that it is a mistake now
to bring on an investigation and
it looks to us like a bad stroke of
policy, on the part of the true
