October 24 in San Antonio history…
Bexar County commissioners soon may be joyriding in an automobile. A. E. Staacke Automobile Co. has been awarded a contract to supply the county with a 1910 model seven-passenger, 40-horsepower Knox touring car for $3,350.
There are exactly 202 names on the official ballot to be used in the November 7 general election in Bexar County. The ballot is more than a yard in length and considerable time will be required in counting. Joe S. Newton, clerk to the county commissioners, said no orders yet had been given for printing the ballot but that it will be done later this week or early next week. This is to be done, he said, to allow from withdrawals from the ticket.
