LINCOLN, Nov. 8. (Special.) While
election day as a general proposition was
rathet unlet here, at times there was some
thing doing of an exciting nature.
In precinct a of the First ward a riot
call was sent In by the Judges In order to
clear thu card distributers away from the
polls. Y'ounK boys and men had been em
ployed by various candidates to distribute
cards, and In their xcal to earn their wages
they sometimes followed the voters almost
to the booth.
When ordered to leave several objected
and the police were called. The boya were
chased 100 yards away. Whlk the police
were at the polling place four men rolled
up in an automobile, evidently of foreign
birth. They started to leave the machine,
but upon seeing the officers they crawled
back and drove away. Whether they ever
got to vote Is not known.
Carriages and automobiles were thick on
the streets all day. Some bore placards
of candidates, but a lot of thi ni were nol
designated as republican or democratic.
Tho weather was ideal all day and the
vote In the residence wards was heavy
early In the morning.
In several churches women congregated
and pruned for the success of Senator Aid
rich and the dry ticket, while the Mo
Kinley chimes were played at Intervals.

the returns from the state are meager and
scattered, so much so as to prevent an ac

than it was two years ago. Aldrich Is show
