Miss May Hoffman Describes

, Watcher Named Linde.
MR. WORD'S LEAP RELATED
9 Big Clearance
Sadden Cliange in Flood of Votes
oU?d Officers Testify Goard
Jfot Deputy Sheriff and Xone
Know Wny Ho Was There.
With the testimony of Miss May
Hoffman, the pretty 21-year-old clerk
of Precinct 37 at the last general elec
tion, evidence offered yesterday at the
inquiry into the alleeed Ir"1"""!
in this precinct began to point toward
mysterious watcher at the polls named
TJnde Nobody examined yesterday
knew who Linde was. Nobody could
be found in the courtroom who knew
positively why he was there.
When she returned from luncheon on
November 4 Miss Hoffman found Mrs.
Hart one of the clerks, walking up
and down the sidewalk in front of the
polling place. Linde. the allegred Dep
uty Sheriff, was inside alone with the
ballots. He was lying on the long table
apparently asleep, she testified.
"In the afternoon Mr. Hurlburt didn t
seem to get any votes, and Mr. Word
ran clear across the page," testified
Mr. Horlbnrt Ahead In Morning.
"How did the vote run In the mora
ine'" asked Dan J. Malarkey. attorney
for Sheriff Hurlburt in the recount pro
ceedings. "Mr. Hurlburt was ahead all morn-
""Dld you notice or remark on the
change in the afternoon?" '
"Yes. It seemed funny that Mr. Word
would gain so much jn him all of a
sudden." , ,
"Ob. by the way," said Mr. Malarkey,
"who did you vote for?"
Miss Hoffman's testimony was the
most important and convincing of all
that was offered at the inquiry before
Circuit Judge Kavanaugh yesterday.
About the mysterious Linde, whom no
body seemed to know, centered a great
deal of yesterday's inquiry. Gustavo
Linde. a meatcutter. had been subpenaed
in the morning, but when Ross Cope
land, one of the judges of the night
board, said he was not the man, and
when Gustave Linde himself declared
he didn't even know where Precinct 37
was. he was allowed to go.
After Koss Copeland had declared
Gustave Linde was not the man referred
to. J. W. Drewsey, formerly a Deputy
Sheriff under Mr. Word, was called to
CommJftHion Tiot Issued.
"Mr. Word, Dode Parrott and I as
sisniedhe men to the various precincts
as watchers or deputies," said Mr. Drew
sey. "Linde didn't have a commission
from" us. I'm sure, but he might have
had one from the Democratic county
central committee, for Mr. Phelan was
a member of that committee. All the
men who went around for us had com
missions. Maybe Mr. Phelan had given
Testimony further showed that Linde
was at the polls almost continuously
from the time they opened on election
day until late on the night of November
4. after the changes m the vote for
Sheriff had become apparent. He is said
to have left about the time the erasures
were first discovered by the night board
and was not seen afterward.
As be unfolded the ballots and looked
at them in counting the measures on
the first night. Mr. Copeland said the
vote was rnnnincr strongly for Mr.
Hurlburt. When the night board went
to lunch Allen, one of the clerks who
now cannot be found, was left with the
ballot boxes, be said. Linde stayed
Clerk Says He Made Sio Krasnres.
W. 1 13. Knowles, a day clerk, de
nied that Mr. Clark, the day chairman,
bad instructed him to help voters make
erasures on their ballots. He had
erasers in his pocket, he said, for he al
ways carried them, but he was too busy
to help anyone erase while the voting
was going on.
other judges and clerks will be called
to the stand for examination today.
During all the proceedings yesterday,
Special Agent Walter Geren. of District
Attorney Evans' office, sat in court
taking notes on the evidence with a
view to presenting the case to the
prand Jury for criminal investigation.
Of the "30 votes cast in Precinct 37,
1 10 have been challenged as fraudulent.

PENDLETON. Or., Feb. 2. (Special.)
Holding that jail sentences punish tax
payers more than bootleggers, tircuii.
Judge G. W. Phelps Is advocating the
establishment of a county rock pile.
Several convicted bootleggers are be
fore the court and Judge Phelps says
he does not know what to do with
"There is no doubt In my mind, what
ever," says Judge Phelps, "that there
are men of a certain type around
Pendleton who will deliberately sell an
Indian liquor for no other reason than
that they want to land in the county
jail where they may be comfortable
during the Winter. The jail is warm
and th'e board is good. The bootleg

question with me is whether jail sen
tences are punishment."
