APPLY FOR WRIT OF PROHIBITION. 1 Ask That Order of County Court for j Special Election Under Local I Option Law be Set Aside COURT SUSTAINS LOCAL OPTION ELECTION The local option contest In this county took u new turn last Friday, when Messrs. W. S. Anthony and E. A. Kozier, as 'ittorneys for C. F'. Itickiis, Sain 'I Porringer and Ueorgo M. Wilson as relators or plaintilfs, prepared u petition for a writ of pro hibition by which they are striving to prevent the local option election from being held. The first two re lators are saloon keepers and the latter Mayor ol tlie City of Farm ingloii. Hy their petition the relators claim that the County Court called the election throughout the comity, and by so doing judicially determined that the City of Farmington did not ut the time have ',."itMI or more in habitants, whereas in truth and in fact, as was subsequently shown, the city had something over l7lMl inhabitants. The petition further declares that tin" order n' the County Court cull ing the election is "all wrong" from start to lluish, void and of no legal effect. The petitun further relates that the notice is wholly defective for seven or eight material reasons. It is furlliei related that the pe tition llled is whollv iiisutllcient in law, because it recites that there is no incorporated town in the county having inhabitants. Judge Killiau granted the relators leave to (lie their petition and caused notices to be issued and served on each individual justice of the ( utility Court to show cause, on Thursday, February -ith, why they should not be forever prohibited from holding or causing to he held the local option election. The Court room was crowded yes terday morning with men and wom en, all intensely interested, when Court was called to order, and the proceedings were entered Into with out delay. The principal contention wus that the County Court should have taken act mil noth f the fact that the City of Furmingtoii luid ut the time the order of election was made '',.'ilK) or more inhabitants. Judge Killiau held that the last legal census of Farmington, taken Feliru ury 4th, 1!H, shows thut the City of Furiuiugtou had only 'J, l.VS inhabi tants, and in passing upon the sub mission of the Local Option ques tion to a vote, the 'utility Court was bound by the lust census. Therefore us a mutter of law the City of Fanii Ingtou did not have 'J,."km or more Inhabitants, and must vote with the county. Tho Court thereupon de clined to prohibit the carrying on of the election, thus sustaining the Lo cal Option people. Tho attorneys for the relators gave Informal notice that they would or might take an appeal. The case was closed ut 4 p. in. Quito a largo crowd of people came from lioiine Torre and F'lut Klver to attend tho case and they wore enter tained in the Hrothorhood rooms by tho Aids of the dilfemnt churches. A delicious luncheon was served at noon to all those who wore interest ed in the matter. A Substantial Valentine.

STEINBERG, The Jewelsr, I'AKMIM.TON. Mil. THAT "ORPHAN CIRCULAR." Editor Times: 1 will ask sutll clout spine in your valuable col umns to inform your readers and to ease the minds of some as to the author of the iuloriuiit ion contained in n circular that was distributed in the Lead licit last week and which i was dubbed as an "orohan circular" I from the fact that no inline was sub scribed to it . I will stand sponsor for the information contained there in, and in doing so will say that if all the slalcmciiW that will be made on both sides of the question at issue, whether orally or those that may unpear in print, will be as truthful as the information given in l this circular for the informal ion of 'the voters, no one will then have any cause for complaint over the re. jsultoftbis election, let the result be wl t ". ...ay. I did not think that it wus in ssary in giving the j information to say to the parties ; having same published to use my , name, but hud I had reason to be lieve that so much unfavorable com incut would have been made on ac count of it not being signed, I most assuredly would have permitted the use of my name, as my view s on this question are well known. The county olUcial of Madison County witli whom had the conversation is Mr. J. M. White, County Clerk. Building of permanent rock roads wus begun in this county in Is.'.l7, mid not ut the time of the orgaui.u of the county, in IS'.'I, us the editor of the Loud Kelt News would have it; hut while Judge Sleoth wus Pre siding Judge of the County Court the work wus begun on the Flat Kiver road (old Potosi roudi, and the mileage of rock road bus been increased in the county from year to year until wo now have upw ard of ;t(l miles, besides the appropriations by the County Courts during that time on Improvements on other than rock roads amounting to severul thoiisuud dollars, as during l!N)7 to reiuiild the main street in the town of Flat Kiver an appropriation of l,0"J!i.."i) was mude In June, nnd one of .fsiKl wus mude in October, every cent of which wus derived from druin-Hliop revenue, tho citizens of that place having subscribed a like sum to meet the upproprirtioiiH asked for. As to the tlxahlo wealth of Madi son County us compared with St. Francois, or the comp'irison of pop ulation UH to poll tuxes collected, will suy for the Information of those who are either misinformed or are trying to misleud the voters, that no property or poll tux is used to build rock roads; this is expended under the direction of the road over seers or road boards of the respec tive road districts. Dram-shop li cense revenue only is used for building rock roads or mooting sub erlptlons for road improvements. Without having been requested to do so by anyone 1 did, as much for my own information as anything else, dig up from the records In my office some statisfics of the state laud county criminal costs during I the past five yours and tho receipts from dram- shop licenses during jthut time, and cheerfully gave each I side a copy, that there should not bo any necessity for any iinfulr statements by either side.
