From present Indica tions the contest In the county just : at this time Is between Campbell and Brooks, although Judge Bell Is de veloping considerable strength in some sections. Colquitt will no doubt receive some votes In the coun ty, but not enough to entitle him to any serious consideration in the con test for the majority of Kills· county's ! convention vote. In the beginning of the campaign it was generally conceded that Brooks would lead In Kills county, but, the fact has lately developed and must be admitted by an impartial observer that Campbell will be a close second. If, in fact, he does not come under the wire a few lengths ahead. However, It will re main for the voters to determine this matter on July 28. In the mean time the partisans of the gubernatori al candidates will do some lively hustling in the tall timbers. The first move toward the organi zation of a political club was made I yesterday afternoon when the friends of Campbell met at the court house and formed the Tom Campbell Club of Waxahachie. The club started off with a large membership, and names j are still being added to the list. The I meeting was called to order by J. Τ Gill, who explained the purpose of I the gathering.
