PRECINCT VOTE PUT . OUT
Supreme'Court Decides Gross
Frauds Were Committed,
LEGISLATURE IS AFFECTED
Republicans Have to Gain but Few
Votes to Control Both Houses
Governor Peabody Cannot
Overcome-Lead of Adams.
DENVER, Dec. 14. By. deciding today
to throw out the vote.' of Precinct Seven,
Ward Eight, of this city, .owing to alleged
frauds committed there at the late ;elec
tlon, the Supreme Court, established a
precedent that may be .applied to many
other precincts in which, it is alleged, the
court's Injunctive order was violated, and
thereby vitally effect the -results - of the
election. Should similar action be taken
In other cases to the" extent1 demanded by
the Republican lawyers, it will, result In
the election of the entire Republican gov
ernment in this county, and give them
control of both branches of he Legis
lature. In the face of the returns, the
Republicans have a majority In the
House and the Democrats a majority In
Another result of the exclusion of a few
precints would be to put the Republi
cans in possession of all the city and
county offices except the Mayoralty,
should the Supreme Court decide that the
Spring flection was not legal and that
these offices .were to be filled at the No
vember election. The Democratic ma
jorities ran from 700 to 2000.
The returns of lour city precincts in
which election officials have already been
convicted of contempt of court, all of
which may bo ordered thrown out, are as
Ward Five, Precinct Six, Democratic
257. Republican 56; Ward Five, Precinct
Nine, Democratic 284, Republican 79;
Ward Seven, Precinct Eight, Democratic
196, Republican 21; Ward Seven. Precinct
Ten, Democratic 369, Republican 96.
Totals. Democratic, 1206; Ttepubllcan, 202.
Democratic majority, 1004.
Should the entire vote of eight city
wards, over which the Supreme Court as
sumed jurisdiction, be disregarded, Alva
Adams, Democratic candidate, would
'lose 18,845 votes, and Governor James II.
Peabody 8541, a net loss of 10,304 for
Adams, but this alone would not result in
his defeat, as his - majority in the state
Is something over 11,000.
In. announcing the decision to exclude
the returns of Precinct Eight, Ward
Seven, Chief Justice Gabbert said:
"Frauds cannot be prevented fully
unless the court assumes jurisdiction to
prevent them and power to undo them
in all cases where they are committed In
violation of its orders. A court of equity
has the power to effectuate its orders,
and the motion will, therefore, be sus
Dissenting from the opinion of Justices
Gabbert and Campbell, Justice Steele
"In my opinion, the finding of the
court is unwarranted, unprecedented,
and directly contrary to the law. This
court has no power to take the action
that it has. I had no opportunity to pre
pare a written opinion in the matter, but
I will do so later."
By permission of the Supreme Court,
which had warned all lower courts to
discontinue taking jurisdiction in election
matters during the pendency of contempt
proceedings before the high court, the
grand jury now investigating both the
May and November elections, today
opened the ballot-boxes of Precinct 2,
Ward Six. The particular inquiry was
Into the manner of extending the totals
of votes, cast for all candidates. It was
found that Democratic candidates suffered
losses by reason of extensions being writ
ten after the wrong names.
Democratic leaders charge that the er
rors were not accidental and further al
lege that election officials were influenced
into making the erroneous records.
WOMAN JUDGE THREATENED
Denver Returns Signed Because She
Feared She Would Be Put in Jail.
DENVER, Dec. 14. The hearing of
contempt charges was resumed today by
the Supreme Court, the case from Pre
cinct Two, Ward Seven, being taken up
The defendants are Leonard Rogers,
Democratic candidate for the State Sen
ate; Frank W. Lee, Police Captain;
Michael Geer. Constable; William G.
Adams, Louis Hamburg and John P. Ken
drick. The complaining witness is Jay
Cook. Jr., Supreme Court watcher. The
prosecution presented evidence tending to
show that there was repeating, and bal
lot-box stuffing, lor which the defend
ants were responsible.
Mrs. Anna Anderson, the Republican
Judge, testified that voting of names reg
istered from vacant lots was common.
When she refused to sign the. returns, she
said. Leonard Rogers threatened to put
her in JalL The Republican watchers
were forcibly ejected from the polling
Police Captain Lee, one of the defend
ants, examined the witness in his own be
half and obtained from them admissions
that he. had no part in any disturbances
that occurred and that no complaints were
made to him.
The court ordered Captain Lee dis
charged. The court denied the request of
the Republican attorneys for the opening
of the ballot box irom this precinct on
the ground that the evidence of fraud did
not warrant such a course.
While the trial was In progress Thomas
Kinsley, prizefighter, who was a special
officer In this precinct, was brought Into
court and his name was added to the list
of. defendants. He was arrested upon
passing through the city today.

enough for him to make a living, but "he

enough last Summer and there is only one
bricklayer in the town.
"The hotel is vacant and we want some
one to keep it." continued the ambassa

doctor. There is one doctor there now,
but he has so much to do out in the sur

from all parts of the United States and
Canada. There ari now about 200 of
the members in attendance at the an

It is thought that a large majority
of the membership will take advantage
of the opportunity to come to Portland
next year. The regular time of the
meeting is in September, but an effort
will be made to place the next conven

doubtful If equally as great or greater

Fireman Has His Life Threatened in
A sensational gunplay occurred last
night in an auction store operated by S.
Mazarousky, at Third and' Burnside
streets, according to the statements to
Captain Moore of H. Holt, a plpeman on
the -fireboat George H. Williams. He Is
corroborated by Mike Long, Mat Mattson
and Ole Larson, who claim they wit
nessed the affair.
In addition to the alleged drawing of a
revolver and a threat to kill Holt, made
by. a man whose name Is not known at
thl3 time. Holt alleges he was "film
flammed" out of $5 by the auctioneer. In
fact, it was the loss of the money that
brought on the other trouble.
Holt alleges he bid 10 cents for a foun
tain pen( and that it was sold to him. He
says he' placed a $3 gold piece on the
counter, and that the cashier switched it,
placing a nickel there in its stead.
Captain Moore detailed Policeman Tee-

ed back, that Mazarousky and the other
men in the store denied everything. Holt

BIG CROWD DISAPPOINTED
Many Gather in the Street Ex

TRAFFIC IS GREATLY IMPEDED
Colonel Now Declares He Had No Idea
of Making a Gunplay, but Loss
of Millions Would Anger
BOSTON, Dec: 14. (Special.) Col
onel William C. Greene, of Arizona and
New Tork, sorely disappointed a crowd
of several thousand people today by his
continued failure to make good his
half-page threats to do somethings aw
ful to Thomas W. Lawson. But the
failure of today was not without Its
compensations, for thelncldent has
now become one of the funniest things
that ever happened in Boston and New
York financial circles. The morning"
newspapers had been unable to get
from Colonel Greene any satisfactory
statement as to his excuse for not
showing: up yesterday and having it
out with Lawson.
At 2:30 the crowd began to gather
in the square in State street in front
of the old State House, anxious to wit
ness the expected meeting of Lawson
and Greene, and at 3:30 there were sev
eral thousand there and a squad of
police was called out to keep the
street-car tracks open and assist truck
men on their way. Lawson himself left
his room In Young's Hotel and walked
unaccompanied to his office on State
street, the windows of which overlook
the scene of tho anticipated meeting.
From these windows he looked out Into
the square until 3:30. Then he was
driven to his home. While tho crowd
was waiting to see the fun a message
had come from New York saying the
telegram to Lawson saying he waa on
the 10 o'clock train was a "fake," put
up by some practical joker.
Greene was further quoted as say
ing: "I decline to be egged. I won't
be driven into anything rash. A lot of
people would like to see me make a
fool of myself."
"But," said the reporter, "you volun
tarily stated to the public through the
advertising columns of the New York
and Boston papers that you would go
to Boston and have it out with Law-
"I was hot when I said it," answered
the Colonel. "It would make any man
hot to lo3e several millions. I never
meant to make a gun play. The epi
sode is closed. Lawson is all right,
but he has no right to pound me. I
repeat that the episode is closed."
