CITIES OBJECT TO REGISTR ATIO.V
Expense of Proposed Plan Given aa
HASTINGS. Neb.. Jan. 4. tPpeelal.)-
On the ground of economy slone. n number
of cities in Nebraska are preparing to op
rose the effort on behalf of Hastings for
the enactment of a law providing en ade
quate method of registration for elections
In cities of between 7,000 snd ISVWi popu
lation. The proposed legislation was discussed
at a meeting of city attorneys In Lincoln
last week and the expressions, though gen
erally favorable as to the purpose of the
bill, indicated an opposition on account
of the slight Increase In expense that
would result from adopting the registration
plan of Omaha and Lincoln.
Registration of all voters Is not required
In cities of less than 25,000 population
There 1s an annual period, however, for the
registration of new voters and those who
have moved from one ward to another.
By this operation the registration list Is
always Inadequate and Incorrect. City
Clerk Batton and City Attorney Button,
who have studied the registration prob
lem seriously during the last few years,
recently determined to ask for an enact
ment that would make the registration law
of Omaha and Lincoln apply in the cities
of this class. This would retiulre an an
nual registration of all voters and regis
tration boards would sit for three differ
ent days In each ward.

All failed but the Franklin ,
in Worcester contest
Against thirteen competitors, the 1909 Model D Franklin
touring-car won the only perfect score in the Worcester, Mass.,
reliability contest, December 12. Nearly all the contestant!
went through the road run without penalization, but the Frank
lin was the only one to withstand the rigid examination after
the run by a technical committee from the faculty of the Wor
cester Polytechnic Institute. All except the Franklin suffered
penalization due to broken, strained, bent op loosened parts,
leaks, etc. It was necessary for the committee to go over the
Franklin six times in order to satisfy the other competitors.
Was this luck? No!
This is the fifth severe contest in which a 1909 Franklin has
carried off the honors. Most any automobile can make a hard
road run without stops, but to go through without troubles of
any kind and without any derangement or strains resulting is
what tells the story. The light-weight air-cooled Franklin does
not strain or rack itself. It stands up. It rides comfortably.
