THE BEE: OMAHA, THT7KSDAY. OCTOBER 1011. 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 the votes. 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 democrats. Registration figures for 1910 show that from 1419 Dodge street thirty-one persons registered, twenty-three republicsns and even democrats, with one without a political preference. 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 year. 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. Rejected Suitor Uses Brickbats Becsuse the Kill he loved turned him don and married another man W. II. Meyers went to the I'nion depot Tues day night and attempted to wreak Ins vengeance on the party by breaking up the honeymoon The result as that Meyers was lodged behind bsrs at the city bastlle charged with disorderly con duct. He was later released on $.'5 bonds and forfeited the same by not answering to hi name In police court Wednesday morning. Meyers was arrested by Officer McDougall, who said the disturber came Into the station and on spying the newly weds made life miserable for them by throwing, not rice, but brickbats at the groum. The reception was more than the groom wanted and he called for an officer.
