Cap. Tyrrell of Beaumont, Texas, was calling on Clarion friends Saturady [sic]. Cap. still as a host of friends in this county among the old settlers, all of whom will be glad to know he has made a “barrel of money” in the oil business the past few years. In the early political history of the county Cap was a prominent and aggressive figure and when he entered the race his opponent well knew it was to be a fight to the finish. We have known of Mr. Tyrrell calling our father out of bed as early as 3 or 4 o’clock to discuss some political matters and by day light Cap was well into the township he was to canvass. He has used the same aggressiveness in business, as do his sons, Will and Harry Tyrrell.
