San Antonio, Texas, July 19. The success or defeat of the prohibition question at the next session of the leg islature depends more upon who is nominated for the state senate Saturday than it does upon whether or not the issue carries in the primaries. Unless the complexion of the senate is so changed that there are two-thirds of that body in favor of submission, there is all probability that the matter will not be submitted to a vote of the peo ple, the same tactics being pursued as was the case at the last session. Seventeen state senators are to be chosen, 15 for regular and two for un expired terms. Eight of these have no opposition, six of them being antis and two pros. That leaves nine positions to be fought for. Of that number In three districts there is an anti in opposition to an anti and In only six districts are there pros In opposition to the antis. In order to have a two-thirds working ma jority It becomes almost necessary for the pros to capture all of the six con tested districts, -which at the present time seems almost impossible. Holdover Senators Favor Prohibition. Of the holdover senators, seven are credited to the pros, three to the antis and four are doubtful. From the line up it would appearthat the pros are certain of thirteen ,senators, the antis "eight with contests in six districts. In the house it Is certain that there will be a two-thirds majority, in favor of submission. There are 133 members of that body to be elected from 109 dis- ! trlcts. In 19 districts the nros have a I walkover. In IS districts the antis are , . . certain to wan In 31 d stracts the can didates are all pros while the same con dition prevails wuth the antis in 15 dis- I tricts. In the remainder there are con tests in which both factions have repre sentations. The pros are, therefore, as sured of 50 members and the antis of 33. To have a two-thirds mapority the pros must carry 39 seats. It looks cer tain that they -will do this and have men to spare. In order to have more j than one-third the antis need 12 teats. This there seems little chance of them securing. Strong Boasts Made. The antis have long made the boast rhat as long- as the present complexion of the senate remains the, jarne that they are not afraid that the prohibition -amendment to the state constitution will be submitted to a vote of the peo ple. The holdover senators are as follows: i Third district, B. B. Sturgeon. Frls; i fourth, R. E. Cofer, Gainesville; fifth. T- W. Perkins, McKinney; tenth. Piece B. Ward, Cleburne; eleventh, H. B. Terrell, West; twelfth, A. J. Harper, Mexia; thirteenth, C. C. Stokes, Crock ett; fifteenth, McDonald Meachum, Xa vasota; sixteenth, F. Charles Hune, jr., Houston; twentieth, John L. Feller, Austin; twenty-first, F. C. Weinert, Se guin; twQnty-sixth, W. X. Adams, Brownsville; twenty-eighth, W. J. Bry an, AbHene. The senators without opposition are a follows: Ninth, Robert L. Warren, Terrell: eighteenth, D. A. Paulus. Hal lettsville; nineteenth, Q. U. Watson, Giddings; twenty-second, W. O. Murray, Floresville; twenty-third, John G. Wil lacy, Corpus Christ! ; twenty-fifth, Claude V. Hudspeth. TERRELL ENTERS REPUBLICAN RACE Would Accept Gubernatorial Nomination in Texas Makes Statement. San Antonio, Tex., July 19.
