as were the city and county offices wltli
the exception of that of the county auditor.
The republicans made use of several
automobiles for carrying voters to and

DES MOINES. Nov. 4. Epeclal.) A small
war over Greek letter fraternities has
brokcii out In Dakota unlversltf. and It Is
taken by the students to Indicate a similar
fight against societies and clubs In all. the
colleges of the state. For several years the
trustees have had a standing rule that no
Gre?k letter societies shall be organlred
nrnore the students. During the last year
It became known that a number of "clubs"
had been organised and ' that they had
taken Greek names. President Bell has
been Impelled to Issue an ultimatum to
these clubs, specifying among othersthlngs:
The clubs must not have any Greek letter
The students must not wear club pins.
Club members must not use any form of
initiation in taking In new members.
Each club must elect a member of the
university faculty a member of the club.
No club shall keep or maintain any club
In these clubs are eight members of ths
Drake football team. There are members
of the debating society and many of the
leading spirits of the college.
Will Get a Neve City Hall.
One of the side Issues voted on by ths
voters of Des Moines today was that of a
new city hall.. The city owns a site for
the hall on the river bank. In an out-of-the-way
place, and there., has been trouble
over actually getting a . new ' city hall
started. Today there was submitted again
to the voters the question of borrowing the
money for the now hall and It carried.
But It Is stated that there Is trouble ahead.
The last time It .was submitted a woman
lawyer of the city went Into the court ar.d
had the bonds declared Illegal on the
ground that women were not permitted to
vote on the proposition. Today It was
found there was' such confusion In the
whole matter that It Is feared the bonds
may be Invalidated again. For lack of suf
ficient ballot boxes the city proposition
was voted into the same boxes as the sen
atorial primary and In many wards there
was no separation of ' the votes of the

First Use of Machines.
The greatest Interest In tho eleotlon in
Des Moines today lay la the first use of
the voting machines. There waa much con
fusion and consequent irregularity, not only
because tho machines were used but be
cause there were several special propo
sitions on the machines, also a senatorial
ballot and two special city ballots. At
some of the precincts , where there were
as many as 1,003 voters two machines were
used and these were not more than enough
to do the business. A great many voters
had difficulty In recording their votes as
they desired. There was especial com
plaint ' because of the difficulty. In voting
spilt tickets, and members of minority
parties were hard to suit.

MUCH BETTING HAS BEEN DONE
One Man Thinks Amount Is Greater
Than la Any Vrevious
"I have lived In Omaha for thirty-two
years," remarked a well Known sporting
man last night, "and I have never seen
so many or so large bets made on the re
sult of the election as on this one."
At several places around the city large
amounts were put up and the total of
these will reach a large figure.
Twenty thousand dollars has been left at
the Merchants' hotel In wagers. Some of
the money Is on state results and some on
the national election. As a rule In all the
betting in the city the odds on the state
have been even, while on the general re
sult k has run from 2-1 to 6-1.
At the BudweUer saloon about $18,(00 has
been put up In various amounts ranging
from 10 to Sl.WO or even more.
At Foley's sa'.oon about $10,000 Is hanging
In the balance awaiting the f nal results.
At Savhs' cigar, store a considerably
amount has been put up, running veil Into
the thousands, though no accurate state
ments of the total could bo secured.
' Lewis' saloon Is another plnce whcie
large amounts have been placed on both
general results and the state. Here the
odds on the national election have averaged
about KQ-35, while the betting on the stale
has been even.
At Rogers' Cigar store several thousand
dollars Is held, l or safe keeping, but the
total has not yet been figured. It wns
stated there last night that the money has
come In so frequently and In such varied
amounts that no effort had been made to
ascertain the total.
The Henshaw hotel has been another fa
vorite with betting men and ths safe of
that Institution Is literally .crammed with
envelopes containing wagers of various
amounts on both the state and national
results, as well as a few on .New York
and other states.
McVittie's cigar store holds several, hun
dred dollars, largely In small amounts,
though some of the wagers reach very re
At the Schllts about $1,300 . Is awaiting
the men who made the proper guesses.
The usual odds prevailed here on. the state
and national tickets.
