I'u//Iiiik Problem.
Kills county U ready for the ele.
tion to be held on Tuesday and it
t confidently expected that .1 verv ,
h cgo vote w ill be pulled com pii men-1
tnry to President Wilson. The elec
tion will include a vote upon na
tional. state, district, county aIlrt
precinct offices and a constitutional
I amendment to raise the minimum tax
j to be voted for school purposes Reg
i ular election judges will preside in
various ■ precincts ^dif the county and
| returns of the eleetion will.be made
! to the county clerk as usual. Owing
j to the lack,of interest in the general
! election the returns from the county
i w ill not he bulletined here Tuesday j
j night. National returns will be re- i
j cr lved here and bulletined on West
! Main street at the city hall.
The ballot as printed lor Kins
county carries the name of ( harles
H. Hurdleston. candidate for railroad
cfnimissioner, which will prove the
only confusing problem. The su
f i erne court of Texas on Saturday
afternoon handed down a decision
that the name of Hurdleston should
not have been certified for a pi ae
on the ballot, and Attorney General
Looney has ruled that ballots with
his name printed thereon will be Ills- ;
gal. He further holds that election
judges should obliterate the name
of Hurdleston before passing out
the ballot and then people who de
sire to vote for him maj write the
name in the blank Space lett for
that purpose. Persons desiring to
vote for C. E. Gilmore for that place
may also write his name. It is en
tirely too late to bavp the ballots
reprinted and leave the name of
Hurdleston off.
There are four voting precincts in
the city of Waxahachie. one at
Howell's hardware store, one at Wy
att's office, one in the GeUendaner
building on North College and the
rnher at the city hall.
Local democrats are optimistic
o.er the coming election and confi
dently expect Woodrow Wilson to
be re-elected. Scattering republi
cans, however, expect a different re
sult.
Waxahachie is furnishing a candi
date for state office ori tlie republi
ecu ticket in the person of W. G
McClain, and a candidate for con
gress from the Fifth district in the
person of B. F. Crews.
