REPUBLICANS CHECK VOTERS
Are Making Investigation Into the
Chargei of Illegal Registration.
DIFFERENT STORY LAST YEAR
Then All In' the Lower Ward Were
Expected to Vote for Hitch
rock and Dahlmaa and All
Vae Ttrclared l.eal.
Republicans a well as democrats haxe
taken notice of the charges made by the
World-Herald that on September f last
numerous persona registered Illegally In
the Third ward, and an Investigation i!
being carried on to get at the facts, so
that If the charges are found to be true,
prosecutions may be Instituttd.
In making the Investigation It ha-s be-
ome necessary to go Into the registra
tion of one year ago that names may bt
checked and computations made. While
this has not been completed, It has gone
far enough to develop the fact that In
the same locations where the World
Herald charges fraud this year the same
situation precvalled a year ago without
causing- the democrats uneasiness.
One year ago when .!. M. Hitchcock
was a democratic candidate for the
United States Benate and James C. Dahl
man a democratic candidate for governor
the' World-Herald was bending all Its
energies to boost the registration, little
caring whence the parties came and
whether they registered as republicans
or democrats, just so that they regis
tered. The idea was at the time If par
ties registered as republicans they oould
be worked to vote for Hitchcock and
Dahlmaa and If they registered as demo
crats. If they were opposed to these
candidates they could be whipped Into
line until after election day.
Glaring Fraud Last Year,
One of the most glaring registration
frauds of 1610 was perpetuated In con
nection with the Balvatlon Army Work
ing men's home, 41S South Thirteenth
street, although the management knew
nothing about It at the time and Insist
they had nothing to do with securing
the men or furnishing their names.
The Balvatlon Army Working Men's
home Is a little, two-story building at 41S
Pouth Thirteenth street. The lower
story Is used for an office, dining room
and kitchen. The second floor is used
for lodging house purposes, containing a
dozen beds and cots. From this one place
last fall thirty-nine persons, seventeen
republicans and twenty-two democrats,
registered. At no time In Its history has
the Salvation Army Working Men's home
had accommodations for more than half
of this number. And the great majority
of the people who patronize the home are
transients. They seldom remain In the
city more than a few days at a time.
I From this place last fall. It is apparent
that every man who was there at the
time was taken to the booth and regis
tered, regardless whether a resident of
Omaha or Kalamazoo.
One year ago when the democrats were
turning heaven and earth to roll up a
big majority In Omaha for Hitchcock
and Dahlman It evidently didn't make
much difference to them how they got
This Is clearly shown by the registra
tion from the three little rooms over
Eager's saloon at the corner of Thir
teenth and Harney streets. For years
this place has been used for lodgings,
the people operating trie same keeping
two rooms tor themselves and renting
out three. The three rooms are each
large enough for only one bed, yet not
withstanding this last year from this
particular locality eighteen persons were
registered, but no protest came from the
World-Herald or any democrat. Of the
men who registered fourteen designated
themselves as republicans and four as
Registration figures for 1910 show that
from 1419 Dodge street thirty-one persons
registered, twenty-three republicsns and
even democrats, with one without a
At the Dodge street place a saloon Is
and was In operation on the first floor,
with offices and lodging rooms on the
two floors above. The upper floors have
been used ae a lodging house for some
years, but at no time has there been
the necessary room for the accommoda
tion of more than half the number of
persons who registered from there last
But as they were all expected to vote
for Hitchcock and Dahlman the World
Herald insisted and persisted that the
election was fair and on the square.
Plans Being Made
for Mormon Ohoir
Oeorge E. Carpenter, In advance of the
Mormon Tabernacle choir, which comes
to the auditorium on October 2B. was In
Omaha Wednesday to confer with Man
ager J. M. Glllan, manager of the au
ditorium. The choir consists of 300 men, and In
addition they will be accompanied by
about ISO friends. Two special trains
111 be required to transport the Mor
mons, and they expect to arrive In Omaha
at 4 o'clock In the afternoon of October
2.'. From the train they will go Im
mediately to Florence to visit the historic
"outfitting" place of the Mormons when
they pressed Into the then unknown west.
The problem of handling the big choir
is 'a mammoth one. Before they start
this organization will have (40.000 depos
ited In a Salt Lake bank to be used In
case of emergency. To care for them
on their tour is a matter of detail that
requires much attention. The Rome hotel
will probably be selected as headquarters
for them during their short stay here.
Becsuse the Kill he loved turned him

and forfeited the same by not answering
