Election Results (8 April 1910)
Last Tuesday was Election Day and a fellow didn’t have to be told of it, because it rained. We had splendid weather up to that day and we are enjoying equally nice weather since. In this town election didn’t cause or raise much disturbance. There was only one ticket for town officers in the field which of course, was elected. A vote was also taken on the license question and we honestly believe if the rain hadn’t kept many at home, this town would have gone dry. The vote was 78 to 52 in favor of "wet". Down there at Neillsville where a bitter fight was waging on the license question, the wets won out by a majority of about 130.
