Con irruraan Enjoins Farther
count In Dallas County.
DES MOINES, June 16.-The Hull-Prouty
congressional contest In the Seventh Iowa
district stills , hangs In the balance, with
the prospects that the ultimate decision
will have to be made In the courts. As a
result of the recount by the Board of
County Supervisors of the ballots cast In
the recent primary election the vote stands
at a tie for the two candidates. The re
turns from all the uncontested precincts
of Polk county have been canvassed, with
no show of change.
A sensation was sprung today when the
supervisors of Dallas county were re
strained from proceeding with the count of
the ballots In that county. This action
throws the battle Into the courts. The In
junction was Issued at the Instance of
J. W. Russell, a Hull man, who alleges
that the supervisors lacked Jurisdiction,
and further charged that previous handling
of the ballots left doubt In his mind
whether all the ballots remained Intact.
