Pros Decide to Contest.
At a meeting of the Prohibition
Executive committee in George
town a few days ago it 'was de
emed to contest the result of the
late prohibition election. A com
mittee composed of W. L. Mann,
J. E.ooper, D. P. Wilcox, M. B
Lockett and W. F. Casey, was ap-
pointed to take charce of the af
fair. Nelms & Sansom will wn.
resent the pros and Chcssher &
Wilcox the antis.
It is said that at Belton there
is much injunction talk. The al-
leged causes for complaint were
intimidation at the polls caused
by the actions of the women and
also the distribution of some cir
culars, but which circular the Tri
bune does not know. So far as
learned there- is no agitation in
Temple with reference to an in
junction and it is believed that
there will be no contest to orig-
inate at this ooint. TVmnlo TW.
The protracted peeting will be-
gin at the Methoidist church nex.t
Sunday morning at 1 1 d.'clock.
Every body invited'to attend.
