On the face of the unofficial returns, prohibition has been defeated in Texas by about 6,000 votes. The closeness of the re- sult if remarkable, as something like 475,000 votes were cast.

Another remarkable re- sult is the closeness of the re- sult in Dallas county, the most populous county in the state and having within its borders the City of Dallas, one of the largest cities in the state. The antis predicted that this county would go wet by 8,000 to 10,000 and the pro.-!, or most of them, expected it to go against the amendment by at least 2,000 or 3,000. It wer.t wet by a majori...
