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 Monday. Mr. Boiah here Jumped Into the fray again. - 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 h i r.s lution b made the unfinished bu i nets of the s note.

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."

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. Mayor of Sheelr lows. .

Former District Attorney Jerome and Justice Swann, who Jerome recently characterised as "a half- baked Judge who holds office by the grac I of Charlie Murphy." faced on another again In the court of general sessions to day. There was no reference made to Mr. Jerome's utterances, but the former district' attorney secured a delay of twenty-four hours in the ' arraignment of his client, Joseph a.

The commute wired Senator Burkett Senator Brown and Representative Hitch cock, asking for the census figures on the population of the Third ward. 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. Woald Open Poll Booka. 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 man. "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.

The committee members de- ' j tiaitd for a luitbvr Investigation of tu. j riance In the attitude of the members of the committee lecame apparent In the session Filday morning. Anton SkI came to the fore with frequent objection to the admission of ccttaln testimony on as many different grounds as the Instances num bereo. agl la one of the three democratic members of the committee. His home Is nt Wllber. ills attitude brouaht frequent remonsti ar.ecs from t. II. Crontn, repub lican, from O'Neill. The session was ; 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 added. "Members of the committee are anxious to get the name of our informant," said W. A. Prince, the lawyer member of the committee. 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 Sagl. 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 about. 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 Sagl. 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 Mancuso. "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 Mancuso. "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 ocrat , Old Not Work for Aldrlch. No, I was not," said the witness.

"Don't you know thst such a man as I have described was called Into consultation about how rubber hands could be used on ti e voting -machines?" asked Yelser. This question gained nothing from Flynn further than a declaration that there had been no discussion of the use of rubber bands In committee. "You we.-e Interested in the naturalisa tion of voters, were vou not?" asked Yelser. ehool of Flection. "We tried to get out all who were en titled to vote." suid Flynn. "Who paid for this. work?" "t don't know," answered the democratic chairman. "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 t,o tnnd. with the result that he made 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 a nolloeman In the process of trying to prevent the Illegal votes. i Testimony Is Kxelnded.
