Hears of Proposed Fraud.
It was said this morning that the sudden
move made by Mr. Hearst last night fol
lowed a .report by him) that a printing
company had been at work Tuesday night
printing ballots. The report was further
to the effect that the ballot boxes were
to be opened while in the hands of the
police and stuffed. Mr. Hearst decided
to act at once. The mrdor secured from
Judge Gaynor directed the police commis
sioner and all hia subordinates In the five
boroughs to turn over to the board of
elections forthwith all ballot boxea con
taining ballots and stubs of ballots, and
also to fije with the county clerk before
noon today all envelopes containing tally
sheets. Inspectors', returns, defective bal
lots and ballots marked for ldontlllcatlon.
The order was Issued on the affidavit of
Mr. Hearst himself. The affidavit states
Mr. Hearst's belief that he received a
plurality of the voles, but that, according
14. the returns, 3,4JO more votes than he
himself received were counted for Mr. Mc
Clellan. Captain Cruse read the order to Commis
sioner McAdoo over the telephone. be

Mr. Voorhls said that tits' New York

Howard and Sixteenth
board's office to accept custody of the ballot
boxes, an appeal was made to Charles .
Page, a republican member, but he too,
was unwilling to take custody of the boxes.
Mr. Voorhls told the representative of Mr.
Hearst, who called at his home, that he
construed the order of Justice Oaynor to
mean that In directing the delivery of the
boxes by noon today, opportunity was left
to the Tammany forces up to the hour
to seek to obtain an order to show cause
why the boxes should not be delivered.
When the drivers and policemen guarding
the wagons, found that the unwillingness
of President Voorhees to open the office
meant a long wait, out In the cold, for
them, they were angry, but they made th?
best of it. Colonel Alexander 8. Bacon,
one of Mr. Hearst'a lawyers, who played
a promnlent part In the doings of the night,
made arrangements for the police to get
breakfast In a nearby restaurant. Police
Captain Becker of Brooklyn, who came over
with the load of ballot boxes from his sta
tion to make aure that they were cared for.
and who was the senior police officer pres

dld'what he could to bring order out of the-
confusion caused by the unusual situation.
When Mr. Voorhls refused to accept the ,
ljillot boxes he ordered that they be re- ;
turned to the police station house. At that
time twenty-five police wagons were lined
up In front of the office of the board of
elections and policemen were unloading
some of them. When they learned of the
order of Mr. Voorhls they placed the boxes
In the wagon again, but did not at ones
return them to the police stations.
Mr. Voorhls said he had asked the cor
poration counsel for an opinion as to
whether he should receive the boxes and
would not accept them until he had received
that opinion.
Among the attorneys aiding Hearst Is
William Ivlns, the republican candidate for
mayor In Tuesday's election. Mr. Ivins
volunteered his services to Mr. Hearst and
the offer was accepted. Another attorney
acting for Hearst Is Judge John F. Dillon,
who wa at one time judge ofthe supreme
court 01 10 wa.
No Room for Boxes. -
President Voorhls said that even If the
legal decision should be that his board must
receive the ballot boxes, he would have
them sent under police guard to some stor
age place other than his office, which- was
too small for them.
In Brooklyn also the ballot boxes were not
accepted by the board of elections, but the
police were permitted to carry them Into its
room in the Temple Bar building. . By 6
o'clock this morning all the ballot boxes
from the various precincts were in the
offices under guard and Mr. Dady had gone
to New York to confer with Commissioner
Voorhls upon the situation. It was reported
that many of the boxes In Brooklyn were
not properly sealed.
Shortly before noon extra police were
called out to keep order In the vicinity ot
the ballot boxes in Manhattan.
MeClellaa Hires Lawyers. -
Mayor George B. McClellan announced
today that to protect his Interest In the
proceedings brought by William R. Hearst,
contesting the mayoralty election, he had
retained legal counsel. He has employed
the law firm of Parker, Sheehan-a- Hatch,
of which Judge Alton B. Parker Is the head,
and the firm of Dykman A Carr. The first
named firm Is of Manhattan and the second

expect to be directly involved in any legal

Mansfield's New Play Kot a Reflection
oa Catholicism In Any
Manager Burgess of the Boyd theater
j received the following telegram from
' Richard Mansfield last night, dated at
Des Moines, where the great actor pre
sented his new play, "Don Carlos:''
Some evilly disposed person, actuated by
a spirit of mischief or jealousy, has sent
i out an absurd report that the tragedy of
1 "Don Carlos'' is injurious to the Catholic
church. No statement could be more ridicu
lous or further from the truth. "Don
Carlos" was written 118 years ago by the
great poet Schiller and has been played
since then for the last century at least
twice yearly in the principal theaters of
Germany, Including the Catholic stales.
"Don Carlos" deals to a slight extent with
the horrors of the Inquisition, and the
InqulHltlon Is a matter of history with
which many writers have dealt. The
Roman Catholic church is too big and
much too brond-minded to object to an
historical tragedy by a great poet On ac
count of a political organisation. Roman
Catholic or not Roman Catholic, which has
lung ceased to exin.
Mr. Mansfield will arrive in Omaha on a
special train at about S o'clock this morn
Kindergarten Godmother Mecured by
Teachers' Aid Association for
Two Leetares.
it has been announced that the Omaha
Teachers' Annuity and Aid society has se
cured Miss Marie L. Shedlork for four lec
tures on the 30th and ?lst lusts. Miss Bhed
lock has an International reputation as a
story-teller, her specialty being kindergarten
stories. She has been nicknamed the "Kin
dergarten Godmothers Miss Shedlock is
making a tour of the! Vnited States. One
of her subjects here will be "The Art of
Story-telling." Members r the local
teachers' association feel that they have tte-
cured an unusual attraction In the appear-
ance of Miss Shedlork. Two of her lectures
will be for the little folks and two for the
older people
A striking lustration of the woman's
gifts as a story-teller for children occurred
some time ago at St. Louis, where she
talked to the kindergarten classes of the
city. When she was through talking one
of the tots was heard to remark with all
of a child's sincerity, "Can we ratch her?"
MIbs Bhedlock has made a life study of
child nature.

NEW YORK. Nov. .-The house In
Albany, N. Y.. which testimony before the
Insurance Investigating committee has here
tofore shown was for a number of years
maintained by funds of the Mutual Life
Insurance company, was again given some
attention by Charles E. Hughes, counsel
for the committee, when Michael P. Mul
laney. the caretaker ol the house, was
called today as a witness.
Mr. Mullaney's testimony was In great
part a corroboration of previous testimony
that A. C. Fields, while employed as sta
tionery agent of the Mutual, also looks
after legislative matters and paid the rent
for the Albany house.
Today a number of vouchers signed by
Mullaney were Identified, by the witness,
who acknowledged receiving the money for
them. Some purported to be for legal
services, some for sundries and some for
traveling expenses. Witness said he was
not a lawyer, and could not explain why
vouchers were made out to that Item. J.
M. Beck, counsel for the Mutual, however,
took occasion to remind tho counsel that
all vouchers for the maintenance of this
house. It had been testified, were charged
to legal expenses. . Mr. Hughes said that
did not explain why some were for travel
ing expenses and some for sundries.
Sundries Are Not Explained.
Mullaney could hot tell what the sundries
were, unless they were supplies. He had
taken trips to New York to see Mr. Fields
at the latter's suggestion. Me did not
know how many times, he had been to New
York. He some times bought tickets for
Mr. Fields. Nineteen vouchers were Identi
fied by Mullaney, for all of which he ad
mitted he received the money, which aggre
gated $5,739. These were paid between
March 7, 1900, and July 12, 190S.
Mullaney said his salary was $23 a month.
He had never carried any money to Albany
from New York for Mr. Fields and had
never paid out any money for Mr. Fields.
The greater part of the duy William
1 Barnes, sr.j formerly of Albany, but now
living at Nantucket, Mass., sat In the
room, but late In the afternoon he was
excused for the day. Dr. Barnes figured
in this Investigation .several weeks ago,
when vouchers bearing his signature were
produced, together with a letter signed by
William Barnes, jr., of Albany reminding
the Mutual Life that Ms father's "hono
rarium had not been received." and further
asking that a check be forwarded.
Affairs of Metropolitan.
The Metropolitan Life Insurance company
figured In the greater part ot the day's
proceedings. John R. Hegeman, president
of the company, who was on the stand
when adjournment was taken yesterday,
was the first witness today, and the ex
penses of the company were further gone
Into. It was brought out that Mr. Hoge
man's salary is the same as that of John
A. McCall, president of the New York Life,
$100,000. Previous to 1965. however, Mr.
Hegeman received $90,000. The salary of
Vice President , Haley Flake is $76,000.
George H. Gaston, the second vice presi
dent, receives $37,S00, and Frank O. Ayres,
third vice president, receives $16,500.
The work of . agents In, the field and their
compensation was pLken up with Mr. Hege
man, and later '(ines H. Craig, the ac
tuary, was railed to supply details as to
figures with which Mr. Hegeman was not
familiar. Later In the day, when Mr. Craig
waa excused, Mr. Hegeman was again
called and the subject of the company's
securities was taken up, but the Interroga
tion had hardly begun when adjournment
for the day was ordered.
