but the majorities probably will be small.
Tho vote in the city and county was nor

BROKEN BOW, Neb., Nov. 2. (Special
Teh gram.) An Immense vote was polled to
day In Custer county, more particularly In
Broken Bow township. The day was an
Ideal one and pearly every automobile In
this section was pressed Into service to
bring out the voters. i
It wus the hottest election ever held In
this county. The all-absorbing topic, to the
complete exclusion of the atate and county
tickets, was county division. Broken Bow
township voted solid against division. It be
ing estimated over 800 votes were cast by
the antls. Advices from all parts of the
county show the people were thoroughly
alive to the division question and turned
out en masse.
The feeling was so great In division towns
that cards were passed about advising peo
ple not to vote for Broken Bow candidates.

Democratic voters of Omaha, South
Omaha and Douglas county who thought
to beat the voting machines and have their
votes registered twice for Sullivan were
beaten at their own game and Instead of
accomplishing their purpose they In reality
threw away one vote. Some conceived the
Idea that they could vote for three, but
that two of these could be Sullivan, so
they pulled the lever on Sullivan for both
democratic and populist places.
That was where they went wrong, for
E. E. E. Uldgeway superintendent of th
machines, says that the machines were
so arranged within that no matter whether
a vote waa cast for Sullivan as a demo

machines contains this Instruction and
'in canvassing th vot for an endorsed

one person is elected, the counters of that

NEW YORK, Nov. 2. The features of to
day's election were the general absence of
disorder and the rapidity with which the
vote was cast, notwithstanding the un
wieldy end complicated ballots.
Although many arrests were made for
violation of the election laws, the greater
part of these were found to be due to cler
ical errors or misunderstandings. The pro
fessional repeater and the guerilla were
chiefly notable by their absence. Credit
for this satisfactory state of affairs was
given largely to the new signature law,
put Into practice for the first time In a
New York municipal election. Under this
law every voter after receiving his ballot.
Is compelled to write his name and have
it compared with the signature which he
made at the time of registration.
Tolls Well Watched.
If ever a New York election was well
watched It waa today's. Every polling
place had Its full quota of watchers. In

Columbia, Yale and Princeton and other
nearby Institutions, who were distributed
throughout the greater city. The entire
police force of 10,100 men was on duty be

polling places, with squads of "plain
clothes" scours and detectives ready for
Robert A. Taft, the president's son, who
was among the earliest college men to
volunteer as a watcher, was stationed early
In the day at a Third avenue polling place.
His presence, however, proved auch an at
traction to the East Side crowd that the
police were called upon to disperse the
I spectators and young Taft was transferred
to work as a republican "scout." For the
remainder of the day he spent his time
hurrying by automobile from voting place
to voting place. Investigating reports of
trouole and witnessing the playing of the
political game In a hundred different cor
ners of the greater city. Ellhu Root, Jr.,
also studied the election system of the
city as a scout-watcher. Todays weather
waa all that could be desired.
Bannard Votes Early. '
Otto T. Bannard, the republican nominee
for the mayoralty, voted early. A long
line of his supporters kept up a continual
cheering during the minute or two which

Both Hearst and Justice Gaynor were

Mr. Hearst voted In an uptown garage
shortly after noon and Justice Gaynor ap

where he cast his ballot, only an hour be
fore the time assigned for the polls to
close. Both were pretty thoroughly flash
lighted and snap-shotted while they were
preparing to vote.

Mr. Taft held a reception at the old home

an address from a stand erected on Main

for Bimlngham, attended his first barbecue
of the trip at the Girls' Industrial school.
The president took occasion here to pay
tribute to Secretary Dickinson. In fact,

Enroute to Columbus today the presi

point. At each place he was greeted by
an enthusiastic throng, the negroes being
drawn up on one side of the track and the

At Koaciuska, the president gave further
utterance to his desire to bring the people
of the south 'closer to the other states.

tain Sams and his detail of militiamen are
supposed to be in that vicinity.
Reports from Crockettsvtlle and Sebas
tions Branch this morning were that two
attempts, one successful, has been made
to steal ballots near Crockettsvllle precinct
at the mouth of Long's creek. The home
of Mary Dealin, who held ballots for that
rreclnct, was destroyed by fire and the
ballots were burned with the house. At
Sebastian's Branch precinct the democrats
are reported to have seized the ballots this
morning and hidden them.
According to their political beliefs, Jack
son and .Breathitt county men stigmatize
the firing of the Dealin home as Incen
diary or accidental. The most reliable re
port from the place, which Is twenty-two
miles away. Is that Mrs. Dealin was feed
ing the Lexington soldiers under Captain
Sams when the fire occurred. The ballots
were reported destroyed and fresh ones
were furnished from Jackson.
These are the ballots which an armed
crowd of men threatened to take from a
Jackson bank last week and which were
finally given to Mary Dealin by Judge
Adams for safe keeping. Crockettsvllle,
the home of Ed Callahan, tha noted feud

Almost complete returns from the elec
tion in Douglas county show that the re
publKiins carried everything by majorities
ranging from 1.200 to 4.000.
On the state ticket the republican Judges
have carried pluralities for the high man
of 2.200 and for the low man of 1,200.
The high man on the republican ticket
Is Judge Barnes and the low man Judg
Sedgwick, while the high man on the demo
cratic ticket Is Judge 8ullivan.
The reason for Sullivan's gain at Sedg
wick's expense Is explained by the posi
tion of the two names on th voting ma
chine, the one being above the other, mak
ing It the natural thing for those throw
ing an extra vote to Sullivan to take It
away from Sedgwick.

of 2 jqo, although not a majority over both.

to 19,000. South Omaha In particular failed
to poll its vote, chiefly to the detriment of
the democrats, and the vote In the country
likewise is light.
The election weather could not hav
been better to bring out the vote, but th
voting was slow all during the day and
caught up only during the closing hours.
