WASHINGTON. Feb. 3.-After a series of
thrilling experiences Senator Borah, sup
ported by progressive republican and dem
ocratic senators, made tremendous ad
vances through, the lines of old guard re
publicans and placed the resolution for the
election of senators by direct vote of the
people In a most advantageous position.
After taking several rebuffs the Idaho
senator, with persistence not often ' wit
nessed In the senate, .pounded away until
he landed his resolution in the favoreH
place on the legislative program and It
must come up every day as unfinished
business. .
The moment the Lortmer case was laid
aside Senators Nelson and Borah clamored
for recognition. Vice President Sherman
saw Mr. Nelson first and gave him the
floor. He moved to take up the bill to reg
ulate the leasing of the Alaskau coal lands,
whereupon. Mr. Borah promptly moved to
lay that motion on the table, which failed,
3 td 41. Most senators thought this settled
the' question and that the Borah resolution
had been relegated to a position where It
would not prdva a dangerous factor in the
legislative program during the short period
remaining of the present congress.
After the senate had proceeded with the
Alaskan bill for a short time, Mr. Nelson
gave wary to Senator Warren to make a
motion that the senate adjourn over until I
Mr. Boiah here Jumped Into the fray

Ilorah Demands Roll Call.
He suid that he would object and that
h? did so because It had b come apparent
that scnaiO.s opposed to his re olutlon
would not give consideration to It If they
cjuld help it. He demanded a roll call on
the motion to adjou.n until Monday and
this time he won by a mall margin.
Thus et cjuragtd, Mr. Hoi ah aked that

Fioru the previous roll cill It appeared
that, th.'s reaclu.lon might be given this

quarters. Large numbers of laborers were
brought here and given quarters which did
not belong to them and they had to swear
their votes In."
"Do you believe there were any general
frauds either at the primary or at the elec
tion?" asked Mr. Prince.
"I believe this: The friends of the local
candidate for governor had a very effective
organization. This organisation waa active
In getting out a large vote. In their seal
they probably overstepped a great many
safeguards provided by law. I waa in the
clerk's office at the primary and at the
election and the conduct there was entirely
scandalous, not because of the clerk's fault,
but because of the law. There waa a seeth
ing mass of men trying to register. This
ought to be remedied to prevent Imposition
on the voters and to safeguard the ballot."
President Iavilla already has Intimated
that the friendly intervention of the Culled
States would be welcomed In order to avoid
useless bloodshed. The American govern
ment consequently will express Its willing
ness to both parties to exert its good of
fices In re-estabttdlitug peace.

Permission to Investigate
Books for a Week.
Look In the records and see.
This was the advice and request of John
Yelser, testifying before the legislative
committee Investigating the charges of
fraud In the Omaha elections.
"Taken under advisement," said Chair
man Harrington.
In the afternoon session the committee
decided to give Yelser permission to go Into
the records of the voting lists of the Third
ward. He waa given until a week from
Monday to complete thla work.
Telser was the last witness to take the
stand In the morning session. He declared
that he expected to be able to put before
the committee through Information to be
handed to him some time In the day. the
names of ten men who were In their graves
when their names were registered.
Samuel Mancuso, real estate agent, de
clared emphatically that he had seen blank
affidavits bearing notarial seals and freeholder'-
signatures, both at the city hall
and at polling places and that names of
voters had been inserted later. He was un
able to give the name of the notary or of
freeholders In any Instance, although he
said there were a great man such cases.

A list of about twenty numrs. taken from
affidavits In the office of Dan Butler,
which appeared to be Irregular documents,
was read by Mr. Yelser. This list con
tained many unusual and uncommon names
of foreign tone. The affidavits bearing
these names, said Mr. Yelser, specifying in
each Instance, were IrrefWur. frequently
larking In required oaths and signatures.

Pronounced opposition to th opening of
th record now sealed up In the office of
D. M. Haverly, county clerk, developed
from members ot the committee when th
request was mad by Yelser. The first,
second and fifth precincts, said Yelser,
would probably show th greatest Irregu
larity, but he advised that the whul ward
would stand Inspection if the order for the
opening of the books was to be Issued.
"Oh. why not take this to your county
attorney T" asked Mr. Harrington, chair- j
"There Is no law for that," replied j
Yelser. The lawyer urged that only by the ;
opening of the voting lists showing who)
really cast their votes could the committee
hope to reach exact and positive evidence
of fraud. ,
Three evident forgeries of the name of
Dan Butler to affidavits were . discussed
by Yelser. Butler, who was present at the
hearing, declared, loo. ll.t l,ia luiim- iiad

; marked by not a little of near parliament
ary by-play.
C. J. Smyth, lawyer, was on the stand
when a typical Incident was produced.
Smyth had testified that he had received
Information concerning apparent Irregular
ity in tiie pilmary from a man he did not
care to nr. inu while on the stand.
"I was told confidentially," said Smyth,
"that a number of pctFons had voted tinder
names of other persons registered but not
in the city sixty In one ward. I was also
told that a great many votes in one pre
cinct were not repiesontod by voters.' This
latter statement was found to be Incorrect
eventually by the recount.
"I would rather not give the name," he
"Members of the committee are anxious
to get the name of our informant," said
W. A. Prince, the lawyer member of the
Before Smyth could say whether or not
he would answer, Sagl fired an objection.
"I object," he exclaimed, "because the
witness had said that in one case his in
formant was found to have been Incorrect.
He may be Jui-t like soma of the witnesses
we had here yesterday."
Members Dlanarree.
"Do you want me to rule?" Inquired
Chairman Harrington-.
"It Is not before you, ' retorted Prince.
"I will withdraw my objection," said
Smyth was excused at this point. Ho
stepped to one side and gave a name on a
slip of panel- to Harrington. This was In
turn handed to the bailiff for the service
of a subpoena. Lee Herdman was the
name which. Smyth secretly communicated
to Harrington. This was admitted by Har
rltiRton with much reluctance.
When the name was handed to the bailiff,
Pan Hutler. who was sitting near by re
marked,' "There Is no hurry about that."
Thereupon the ballff placed the name
among a collection of witness lists In his.
"Will you call Lee Herdman?" Harring
ton was asked.
"Well cr I think so," he answered.
again reluctant.
Cnder examination by Yelser, Smyth ad
mitted that talk of corruption In the elec
tion had been general throughout the city.
The witness was asked by the committee
to state his views on the laws bearing on
the election.
"My opinion la that so far as Omaha Is
concerned the primary law Is a dead fail
ure," declared Mr. Smyth. "I think that
nominees secured under the primary are
far inferior as a general class to those
chosen by the old convention ssytcm."
Blanks Pnssed Around.
The latent but positive opposition be
tween members of the committee, again be
came obvious during the examination of
Samuel Mancuso, reul estate agent,' who
declared with unwavering posltiveness that
blank affidavits bearing notarial seals, but
not the name of the voter, were passed
Mancuso's testimony was the most direct
and positive in tone given.
"Did you see the voter's name put In?"
asked Y'eiser.
"Yes, I did." replied the witness.
"Yelser1 then took up the details of the
form of the affidavit tft make It clear that
the witness was testifying to a positive
Irregularity that the notary's seal had
been affixed without swearing the voter,
"I object." exclaimed Sagl of the com
mittee. "Let the- witness answer for him
self." "Do you want any Investigation?" In
quired Crouln of O'Neill, turning about to
This little clash passed by, the witness
was handed a blank affidavit to proceed
with his testimony. On this blank he
pointed out where he had seen the signa
tures and where the signatures of voters
had been Inserted.
Prince (rou-Kxamliiei.
Prince of the committee too over the
witness with a series of questions which
suggested cross-examination.
"Yes, the name of the notary and his seal
were on the blank affidavits," Insisted
"What waa the nam of the notary?"
asked Prince.
"I do not remember," answered Mancuso.
"And now, was the name of the voter
there?" asked Prince again returning to
his cross-examination.
"It was put In afterward," reiterated
"I signed some of these as freeholder
myself," continued Mancuso.
The witness said that after signing a
number of these affidavits as freeholder
he refused to sign more, feeling that he
was not legally qualified to sign them, in
that he was a freeholder of . the ward,
but not a resident.
Prince and the witness entered Into a
merry round of questions and answers, in
which the same ground was threshed over
wearily. '
"Now, were there very many of these af
fidavits?" inquired Matrau of Norfolk.
"Yes, quite a bundle of them," said Man
cuso clieerruny.
"Were you there to work for Aldrlch?"
waa the question of Sagl, the Wllber dem

"Io you know a Creighton student from

but I do not know where they are from."
"Don't you know thst such a man as I
have described was called Into consultation
about how rubber hands could be used on

This question gained nothing from Flynn
further than a declaration that there had
been no discussion of the use of rubber

"You we.-e Interested in the naturalisa

"We tried to get out all who were en

"Who paid for this. work?"
"t don't know," answered the democratic
"Do you know of a notice being sent out
for a 'school of election' to be held over
the r.uilvveiser. for Judges and clerks of
election?" Inquired Telser
"I never heard of such a rheetlng," In
sisted Flynn, firmly.
Matrau, democrat, who had remained sl
lerit through ' the examination of Flynn,
offered a broad and general question.
I "Do you know of any effort on the part
of the democratic central committee to vote
men not entitled to vote?"
"No sir. I do not." SHld Flynn.
Flynn squared himself back In his chair
and at the suggestion of Chairman Har
rington proceeded to relate what his per
sonal opinion of the situation was.
"We will not put thia In the record. Mr.
Stenographer." said Harrington, turning
to Frank Sutcllffe.
Mr. Flynn remarked that he felt that a
great Injustice was being done by giving the
people of the Blalo the Impression that
Omaha's election was corrupt.
"These charges come out after every
election," he suid, "and something ought to
be done that would end It." He had not
gone far Into his oration when Harrington
lalsed his hand.
"I think," he remarked, "that this ought
to go Into the record."
Flynn then repeated his preamble and th
speech went Into the record.
Ilenles lllank Affidavits.
It. M. Prlmcau, a notary and employe
In the office of Dan Butler, was put on

i declarations of the utmost exactness In the
I performance of his duties.
"Didn't you sign blank affidavits to
facilitate your work?" asked Yelser.
"No sir. I did not," nald Prlmeau.
Vou are a democrat?" Inquired Prince
of the committee.
"Yes," Btoutly replied the notary.
Then Prince suggested that John Battln,
an attorney who waa In the office of Mr.
Butler on election day be subpoenaed. This
order was made by Chairman Harrington.
f.. A. Benson, real estate dealer, the man
for whom the suburb of Benson was
named, told of a case of election fraud
which he had seen at the Hotel Boquet,
then the Karbach hotel, at the municipal
election before the last. An auto load of
men. he said, had been delivered at the
polling place just after the legal hour had
come for the closing of the place. The
door was shut, he said, but one of the
election officials cn the Inside proceeded
to vote for each of the fifteen or twenty
men In line. Mr. Benson also told ot a
fight which this election official had with

The Electric Wash
ing Machine has Solv
ed the Help Problem in
Hundreds of Families
There are many families with small children That
employ one servant. When there is more than one
child the laundry problem becomes serious.
It is a question of employing two maids or a reg
ular laundress.
The Electric Washing Machine saves so much
time mid so much labor that it settles this problem
permanently the day it is installed. I
The cost of operation is less than the cost :f

Within h short time the machine pays for itself.
Ask our Contract Department to arrange for a
demonstration forvour benefit.
