Hereford deaf Smith county Texas october ii Itoi $1.50 i r year local option carried saturday s election resulted in a majority of Nineteen in favor of prohibition. A i $ last saturday was the Day for the trial for life of the legalized Saloon in Hereford. The polls were opened promptly at the Legal hour Aud soon the forces on both sides were lining up for the contest. All Day Long the Battle waged in the open with Little to show which Side would gain the Day but when the Day was done and vote was counted it showed that a majority of Nineteen had been cast for prohibition. Many claim that this result will bring damaging consequences to toe material interests i our town while As Many others do not believe that such will be the Case. Also it is believed by som that the moral results will be for the worse because of joints r dives to at will be run in the town while others contend that such will not be the Case but believe that the open Saloon legalized and a condemned is worse than the joint that dares not come out and acknowledge its business Aud which stands condemned by All Law abiding people. But All agree that the joint and the dive Are things of evil and a menace to a Community and so let us now unite upon the enforcement of the Law whatever might have been our vote on the Saloon proposition. Let us try our new Law by strict enforcement whether it be Good or bad for Only by rigid enforcement can we determine the value of any Law then when the two years Are up we can Point the defects if any of the Law As shown by its enforcement and be Able to vote More intelligently when next called upon to decide this question.
