This is election day. From end to end of the United Htates the sov ereign American citizen hied him self to the polls to vote for the man 1 of his choice. Many states elect I governors today and there is a gen-11 eral congressional election in re- ! irard to which the claims of the con I I tending parties giv» equal promise , of victory. In only two districts in Texas has I real fijiht for congress been made by the republicans and the outlook 1 i* that a solid delegation will be sent ( to congress from the Lone Star state. The result of the state election is a foregone conclusion. The entire ' democratic ticket will win a mag- 1 niflcent majority. Anil old Ellis ( county can be depended upon to do ^ h.er part in stacking up a big ma jority for the ticket headed bv Hon. < 8. \V. T. Lanham. From present , I ' Indications the entire ticket from governor down to precinct candi- ! | dates will receive a good majority j in this county. In two or three pre cincts the populists have out can- : ^ didates but there is not much prob- j, ability of any of them beinsr elected. A«a rule the campaign since the i primary election was held in April ! j hue b**en quiet and about the only interest shown was in commissioner precinct No. 4 where there are two candidates. F<>r the last few days a ( good deal of opposition to the pro- | posed amendment to the constitu tion has developed and it is quite likely that Ellis county will give a ! majority against it. From what j cotild be observed at the voting places tn the city tnday the negroes ; aeemed to be voting solidly against the amendment. At th* time this report is written the indications are that there will · be a considerable failing off of the vote in this city. If the same , apathy is shown at oher boxes as in Waxahachie Ellis county will loose j at least two votes In the convention of l!#>4. At tiie time of goint; to press 706 votes had been polled at the four boxes in the city. I. Farnhatn al Lancaster. F. H Kara h am, general manager | of the Union Traction Company, of j ; Cleveland.
