jury for alleged fraudulent registration
In the first district of the third ward

fraudulent registration when ho presented
himself arid asked to vote at the polling
place, 1519 Webster street, at 11:30.
" Con Williams, a special deputy, placed
Brown under arrest and telephoned to
Kherlff Bralley. By the time the sheriff
arrived Brown ' had voted, lie insisted
that his registration was not fraudulent,
but whether It was or not, he aald, the
Judges of election could not take up the
question and they must let him vote.
They took hi view.
Sheriff Bralley took Brown to the alier
iff a office to hold him until Judge Les
lie could be found and ' he could be ar
raigned. Morris Milder aald he would
arrange for bonds for Brown.
Warrants charging fraudulent registra
tion against all the men formerly charged
with perjury were aworn out by John J.
Mahcncy and the county attorney's office
early in the day. They were placed In
the hands of deputies, who stood at the
polling places, ready to arrest the men If
they put in appearances. At noon Brown
was the only one who had been arrested.
Brown was arraigned before Judge
Leslie in the afternoon. He pleaded not
guilty and was admitted to ball In the

ical pretense of holy desiro to make
this general election an honest and fair
one. tha democratic experts in political
trickery started out bright and early
I'ueMuy to steal the election bodily.
When reports of the low tactics played
by the democrats In control at many
polling pla.:;s began to pour in. Sheriff
Bralley sent out his men to help safe
guard the elections. Extra doputlea also
were put on duty.
In tho second precinct of the First
ward the most brazen piece of work
was perpetrated. Republican voter dis
covered that the labels on the republi
can and donioorutio levers on the voting
machines hnd been transposed. The re
publican lever is at the top of the mi
chine, the democratla coming Just under
it. The top lover on th!i machine was
labeled democratic and the second lever,
republican. Tho apparent purpose of the
transposition was to mislead tho repub
lican voters. Naturally they would pull
the lever labeled republican and a vote
for the democratic ticket would ba re
corded. The democrats would be In
formed that the labels were transposed
and would pull the lever marked repub
lican, thus registering more democratic
In tho Fourth precinct of the Ninth
ward the voting machine refused to work
when the polls were opened, and a large
number of voters wero unable to vote,
some of them declaring they had to leave
town and would lose their votes. It was
nearly 9 o'clock before tho machine re
Repnbllrans Are Blocked',
Another scheme put into execution was
to delay the making ready of the voting
machines In strong republican precincts,
the purpose being to tire the voters until
they would give up waiting and go away
In the first and fourth precincts of the
Twelfth ward this scheme waa worked In
the moBt bungling manner. In other pre
cincts it was more cleverly dono and the
voters did not seem to realise that the
delay was effected purposely. In the
first and fourth of the Twelitlt democrats
In charge of the voting maohlhea killed
time by Jimmying and tinkering around
the machines and did not get them ready
for use until nearly U o'clock. Republican
voters stood In line and waited until the
patience of some wa exhausted and were
forced to leave without voting because
they, could not go lata to work.
. Special Drpatlna Appointed.
' In addition to his regular staff of
deputies Sheriff Bralley named the fol
lowing men as special officers to help
preserve order and to make arresta If
necessary : -
J. E. Larson, second of the Tenth.
Joseph Zlgmond, fourth of the Third.
W. R. Plumer, first of the Third.
Con Williams, third of the Third.

Ticket Split in Twelfth.
In the Twelfth ward, where there is a
very heavy registration, the voting was
fairly fast during the early morning, but
tell off to' almost nothing In the middle
of the day. In the First precinct of the
Twelfth, with a registration of 659r only
200 bad voted at 1 o'clock. Most of the
balance will have to be voted between 5
and t o'clock. The same Is true of the
Fifth precinct of tha Twelfth, where but
132 out of the 408 registered had voted at
1 o'clock. The First precinct haa two
machines, the Flfti but one. Consider

two unregistered voters had secured cer
