In tha second ward tha vote was

though a larger proportion of the
votera turned out In the upper end of
the ward than In tha lower Vnd, , Pre
clncta 7 and 8, which are wholly resi

equal to about 88 per oent of tha registration.-
In tha Fourth precinct, which
embraces the north end, the percentage
of votes cast waa much smaller. .Larry

precinct all the morning and was-busily
engaged In rustling votes.
Challengers are at the polls in this

fraudulent votes and prompt measures
will be taken to prevent any dishonesty
In the election. Lane supporters are
confident that their candidate ' will
carry tha second wsrd and they-regard
the light -vote In the north end as a
very favorable eymntom. H. W. Wal

councilman from the aecond ward, is run

are making a vlgoroua effort to elect

was growing and the confidence of hla
supporters .increased as the daj( pra-J

to - him. At noon, . only about 25 per
cent of the total registered vote had
been cast, and the signs wera favorable
to Lane, In the opinion of thoaa 'who
wera at the polling placea.
In the third ward, a hot fight Is in
progreaa between Merrill, Independent
