STRAW VOTE ON CARS
Approach of Election Bay Shows , Sentiment Is Growing:
Stronger Among Business, Club Men and Qthers
in Favor of Present Incumbent of Office." '
- "That mso- run as If hs were run-
alng for Lane," Mid a traveler on an
Incoming Woodlawn ear this morning,
, 'No, air," wu the. response, . "I aee
' in him the- Devlin movement." - These
, remark led to a straw vots, the two
' men arranging it both being well known
. Republican buaineaa men living at or
near Woodlawn. It waa decided to poll
each man aa he got on the car and
' keep a not of the results. ..This was
! carried oat, and when the totals were
' footed up at the end of the run it was
. found that 11 votes had been caat for
' Mayor Lane and four for Thomas C
'- Devlin. v ' ' ';' v- .-
' "That Is the third time we have
elected Lane in the past week coming
; Into town In the morning," said . the
f man when" telling the story. ' ' '
One enthuslaetlo Lane maa tells of
his experience during the paat few
'days. For a week or mors he has
- made It a point to watch the way the
'tide is turning.: Living at Irvlngton.
he has taken a straw vote on his way
tn business on several mornings. Those
who voted In the majority of the cases
were men personally known to him to
be f publlcans. On one occasion the
vote on one car was six out of eight
men asked for" Lane. On another car j
eighth inert :. were polled and seven of
them caat their vote ' for the present
mayor; Every morning for a week this
practice has been kept up, and out of
all the votes cast the average runs ap
proximately five out of . seven In favor
of Lane. ; . . - 1
At- the ;' Commercial club the . straw
vote has been the diversion for several
days, and one .vote showed nine man,
voting for - Lane at a table . where 10
men were eating. The ' next day an'
other vote-was taken, different men be
Ing present, and seven out of a table
full of nine diners cast , their favors
in the Lane box.. -v. ''' '
The sentiment on the street, as gain
ered by this same man," indicates that
tha great majority or the business men
encountered, during, the day; are back
of Mayor Lans in his campaign for re
election? ' ' - :-, ...,... ,,
Otto Burckhardt, tne wealthy packer.
who recently sold the Pacific States
Packing company to Swift 4 Co., has
never voted-for a Democrat In bis life
before, but will cast his ballot for Harry
Lane, simply because the mayor has
suppressed nlckl-tn-,the-alot machines.
"It's the best thing ha. ever did."
saye Mr. Burckhardt, , "the machines
took all nr smalt change, and kept me
Drone in pocket coin all the-time.".
