COUNTY TO SELL
Roard of Commissioners Decides
that it Will Get Rid of
AS RESULT OF INACCURACIES
Elsaeaer Vote No and Lynch Passes
Ilia Vote Commissioner Say
that City Will Make the
As a result of recent disclosures of In
accuracy, unreliability and undependa
bllity of the voting machines, which have
been in use In Douglas county for the
last six years, the Board of County Com
missioners voted to abandon their use
and to prohibit It In the future at their
meeting yesterday. A resolution offering
the county's thirty-eight machines for
sale to the best bidder was deferred until
Wednesday morning to afford time to
determine the best method . of - selling
Commissioner O. J. Plckard introduced
the resolution doing away with-.the' pee
wX. the maohlnes and spoke-in support of
the measure. He declared that It was
not political move.
"During the last week," said Mr. Plck
ard. "leaders of both - parties have told
me they believed the use of the machines
should bo done away with. Such repub
licans it Judge Sutton, Judge Esteile and
County Clerk-elect Frank Dewey have
told me they are certain the machines are
not to be relied upon. Democrats like 11.
L. Endres and John H. Grossman have
said the lame, At the commission plan
election next year the machines could not
be used, as the -law specifically provides
that the Australian ballot be used. There
Is no election near at hand. Nobody
knows now what the lineup or situation
will be by the time , another election
comes. Therefore, it cannot be thought
there Is any political motive behind this.
We bought the machlnea In 1906 and
six years of use, I believe, has convinced
most people that they are a failure.
Commissioner Lynch said he "went up
against" the machines a year ago, when
they gave the democrats the advantage,
and he managed - to be elected. There
fore, he said, he had no personal objec
tions to the machines, but neither had
he objections to the Australian ballot.
He said he had not studied the proposi
tion enough to be able to vote Intelli
gently, so he would pass.
Commissioner Elsasser said In his opin
ion the county first should confer with
Omaha and South Omaha city councils.
Bedford, O'Connor and Plckard voted
yea; Elaasser, no; Lynch passed.
On the resolution to offer the machines
for sale, Elsasser again suggested the
advisability of the county's inducing
Omaha and South Omaha to act simi
larly. Mr. Plckard said he understood
they would. There was some discussion
as to the best method of selling the ma
chines, which ended when Lynch moved
to defer until next Wednesday's meeting.
Methods will be discussed then.
Douglas county owns thirty-eight of the
machines. The others are owned by
Omaha and South Omaha. The machines
cost Sii&O each.'

Nebraska outplayed the famous Mlchl

grandest foot ball battles ever fought on
Nebraska field. Wolverine luck gave th
visitors a tie score of 4 to 4.
With tho exception of ft few minutes
In th opening quarter, the Michigan
eleven was excelled In every department
of th game, punting excepted. Th Corn
husker carried the ball three times ft
far as the Michigan player. The Corn
husker forwards more than held their
own with Yot' heroes. The Cornhusker

Tonrhdoivn for Nebraska.
Nebraska cam back In th next thre
mlnuta of play and took U4 ball on th
thirty-yard line. When ft Wolverin
fumbled Shonka mad ft powerful lung
Into; th MichHtun- lino ft ml advanced to
th twenty-yard mark. Purdy twlc
rushed and shoved th ball across th
goal line. Potter kicked goal. -
Tho playing of th Cornhusker back
field was the most remarkable that th
eleven ha displayed this fall. Th two
Prank brothers and Purdy made th
greatest gains. Purdy pldnged Into the
Michigan line for many gain of four and
five yard and made some of them good
for ten and twelve yards. The Michigan
line and secondary deense seemed un-
ble to stand up under th terrific on- '
slaughts o( the Nebraska backs.
That the game should have been woq
by Nebraska, none who taw It doubt.
Michigan rooter declared that Nebraska
played the better ball, ltrfore th contest
all expected Nebraska to be the defensive
team and to be forced to struggle to avert
defeat. But It was Michigan that had to
fight all th. time In order to keep th
glunt Cornhusker from rushing ovr th
last chalk mark.
In tha final five minute of plat th
Cornhusker carried the oval from th
center1 of the field on straight foot ball
to the fifteen-yard line of the Wolverines.
Owen Frank fell back to the twenty-yard
mark and tried ft drop kick. The pas
wan poor and the star Cornhusker re
ceived th boll on th bouud, but evn
with that, Frank mad a creditable kick
which went to the south of th upright.
Cornhoakers Robbed of Game.
Nebraska ns always will bUv they
wor robbed of the game and Coach
Stlehm feels that his men were done In
justice. In th second quarter Owen
Frank carried the ball over the Michigan
goal line on a forward pass from ft tak
punt formation. The ball was pasxed to
him by Warner. Th umpire declared he
blew his whistle JUHt before th pla:'
started. The men of neither eleven heard
th signal and all wer in the ga $ for
