A SWEEPING VICTORY LAST
SATURDAY FOR PROG-
RESS AND EN-
List on Tatuin of Corsieana was
in the city today.
The election last Saturday to
decide whether or not bonds shall
be inmied for the purpose of build
ing good roads in Road District
No. 4, Limestone county,(resulted
in a sweeping victory for the
proposition and now we will be-
gin to make arrangements to get
orat of the mud, even if some peo-
ple who are mud bound did see
fit to fight and vote against the

Total, 446 153
Majority for good roads, 293,
or 140 more than was necessary
to carry the election.
Many things contributed to the
victory. The people of Mexia
were united and determined, and
led. by the various committees,
turned out and d-id their duty al-
most to a man.
Then, too, we must not over-
look the work done by Col. J. H.
flawley of Galveston; contributed
largely to the success of the move
meet, and our people are duly
grateful to him for his kindness
in coming and helping us out of
A large number of negroes vot-
ed for the proposition, ami Jas-
per McDonald, is probably respon-
sible for the interest taken in
matter by his people, as he was
a hard worker on the streets all
Those gentlemen who have
been devoting their time and en-
ergies to the movement for the
past two months, and who have
been ever ready to go when and
where it was necessary, feel just-
ly proud of the result, and well
they might, for it was a victory
and a splendid one.
So far as we know there has
been no bad feeling, and we are
all friends and neighbors as be-
fore, and when we get those good
roads built we can get out and
vtsiit each other without getting
all stuck up in the mud, and then
all will feel more neighborly and
brotherly and we will forget the
differences that exinted before
Hurrah for Good Roads.
