The final step in the unofficial count
of the statewide election ballots was
taken early today when the widely dif-
fering figures of Texas tiewspapers
and pro and anti headquarters as to
the result were revised as much as
possible and checked up. The result
was a practically unanimous verdict
that the unofficial returns show from
iive to six thousand majority for the
antis though returns received this
morning swelled the anti lead by sev-
effort to view the dead negros body.

tho governor has oiily submitted thus
