of the church and State, and unworthy

IN REPUBLICAN PRIMARIES
Their Votes Causing a Flurry Among
Politicians ns to Intent.
WILMINGTON, Del., Sept. 30.-Dld the
Democrats who voted at the Republican
primaries and assisted In nominating the
legislative candidates In a number of
districts Intend to vole for thorn In the
election, or was there a trick In It? This
Is tho question which Is now agitating
some of the Republicans, nnd they have
not found an answer. It Is known that
In this city a largo number of Demo
crats cither voted or attempted to vote
nt the primaries In certain districts. In
one district tho voto of one Democrat
was challenged, and there came near be
In some of tho country districts It Is
alleged the same thlhg occurred and some
doilaro that the "wet" people went be
hind the Democrats nnd assisted In mak
ing tho nominations. Some Republicans
nrp Inclined to think tho thing wa a
trick, but others believe tho Democrats
art- tired of their own party on account
of the hard times and Intend to voto the
Republican ticket. For that reason they
took part In the Republican primaries.
Under tho primary election laws of this
State a man who registers within a cer
tain time has a right to voto at the pri
maries which ho chooses, but canhot voto
at more than ono primary. This year
tho Democrats had comparatively few
contosts for county offlcea and for mem
bers of the Legislature, and It Is this
which causes the doubt.
CENTRE OF STAGE
TODAY IN MICHIGAN
Fall Convention of Demo
crats, Republicans and
Progressives Assemble to
ELECTION PROBE REFUSED
Judgo Johnson Dismisses Delawaio
County Grand Jury's Information.
MEDIA, Pa., Sept. 30. Judgo Johnson
lato yesterday afternoon refused to
permit tho Delawaro County Grand Jury
to probe allogcd election frauds In tho
Sixth AVard, Chester. The Grand Jury
camo before tho courts with information
that it had been furnished affidavits that
a chain system had been worked In the
Sixth Ward, Chester. That Is to say,
the first voter would go Into a booth with
a blank ballot which he would deposit
In tho ballot box. The legal ballot he
would take away and this would be
marked for tho next voter, who In turn
retained the official ballot handed him.
In this way ballots of many voters could
bo Illegally marked.
In refusing to allow the Grand Jury to
Investigate, Judgo Johnson said:
"Under the law members consider only
such matters ns are regularly brought
before It or which come within tho per
sonal knowledge of the members."
Tho Grand Jury then submitted Its re
port and was discharged for the term.
BY THE REPUBLICANS
OF CHESTER COUNTY
DETROIT, Mich., Sept. 30. Politics held
the centre of the stago In Michigan today
when the fall conventions of the throo big
political parties Democratic, Republican
and Progrosslve-nssombled. The Demo
crats held their sessions here, tho G. O.
P. forces met In Kalamazoo, while the
Bull Moosers hold forth at Bay City.
Each party was to make Its nomina
tions for the offices of Secretary of State,
Auditor Genoral, Attorney General, State
Treasurer and Stato Land Commissioner,
In addition to selecting now Stato central
committeemen and drafting platforms.
Interest centered In the Democratic con
ventions, whero tho long standing feud
between the "Wilson-Democrats" and tho
Wood-Shields faction threatened trouble.
Stato Chairman Shields declared early to
day that the "organization" wing would
be In complete control, although tho "Pro
gressives" promlsod to mnko a last-ditch
fight for tho seating of their contesting
delegation from Wayne (Dotrolt), Cal
houn and Delta Counties. Success In this
fight would give them control of the
convention nnd subsequent control of tho
party organization In Michigan.
There -was every Indication that the
Republican gathering In Kalamazoo
would bo scrcno and peaceful. Tho ono
chance of a serious clash apparently
rested In the possibility that Chase S.
Osborn, tho nominee for Governor, and
tho party leaders might not agree on
platform planks. Osborn several months
ago went on record as favoring the
recall of judicial decisions, but when
this Issue threatened to stir up Internal
strife in the party, ho announced that
ho would mako no effort to dictate his
radical views into the party platform.
Contests for places on tho varlouj
party tickets were comparatively few
and mostly unimportant.

WASHINGTON. Sept. 30.-Advlces from
Mexico City and Chihuahua, General

to the Washington Administration that
the conference at Torreon today between

WEST CHESTER, Sept. SO.-Senator

got to adopt resolutions In behalf of his
candidacy and proclaim the great service
he has performed for the nation, as has
always been the custom of the commlt

told that there would be no resolution
In tho meeting room there Is a large

proceedings, a largo group took a stand
before the former's portrait and said nice
tilings of him. telling each other what
they meant to do on November 3, In see
ing that tho Doctor got the full votes
of their respective precincts. The
portrait of Penrose was unnoticed.
Larry Kyre, always head and front of
meetings of tho County Committee, woe
present, and In a few words, fewer than
ho has ever known to utter on such oc
casions before, pointed to the great vic
tory In store for the G. O. P. nnd urged
every member to activity from now until
the election. There was some applause
on his rallying note, but It wasn't of the
whole-souled order that was once heard
In tho committee, when Mr. Eyre called
tho faithful to the party colors.
The meeting wns decldedy short In en
thusiasm, aside from a warm feeling for
Doctor Brumbaugh. Chairman Fred Mac
Donald announced that Doctor Brum
baugh would come Into the county be

paign and he would speak nt several
places, and this announcement was met
with real applause.

Letters From Democratic
City Committee Viewed
With Suspicion as Product
of Bipartisan Machine.
Federal employes In this city believe
that a secret investigation to determine
the political affiliation of every person
employed In the various Federal de
partments hero is being conducted by
agents from Washington. There is lit
tle possibility, however, of tho results
of the Investigation being made public,
tho employes say, since one of the first
things that will be uncovered will be
the attempts of the "Old Guard" Demo
cratic City Committee to levy political
assessments upon tho Federal employes.
Letters requesting substantial and
prompt contributions to the Democratic
campaign fund have been received by
nearly all the employes In the Postofllce,
the Custom House and the Internal
Revenue departments within the last
two weeks. The letters Btate that the
City Commltteo Is the legally constituted
organization of the Democratic party In
"Despite the force of their declara
tion," said one of the Postofllce em
ployes this afternoon, we have not for
gotten threats made by the 'Legally con
stituted City Committee;' when Ryan
lost the nomination for Governor. We
feel that to contribute to the bi-partisan
City Commltteo would be about tho same
as to h-nd tho money to Penrose. The
two have worked hand In hand before,
and we will have to see very conclusive
proof before we will believe that tho
City Committee and Penrose are not
secretly allied in this campaign.
"The one sentence In the letter, 'the
committee Is the legally constituted
organization of the party In this city,'
may delude a few of the Federal em
ployes Into making contributions to Pen
rose, but that number will be few."
The letters nre signed by B. Gordon

They declared that no technicalities
surrounded the right to sit of Senator
Harris and representatives McDonald and
Stoeckol, and Speaker llolcomb.
In the cases of Representatives Cooper
nnd Swan, who aro charged with being
dual officeholders, they reported that there
was doubt, but that tho House, under
the Constitution, was tho Judgo of tho
eligibility of its members.
After an hour's skirmishing between
tho Democrats and Republicans, the eligi
bility of Representatives Cooper and Swan
was referred to a commltteo of five. The
Democrats control tho committee.
Representative Cooper, of Wilmington,
resigned on Monday as Inspector of drugs

Swan did not attend tho session today.
Representatives Swan and Cooper nre
Democrats. Should tho commltteo of five
to whom their eligibility was submitted
throw the matter to a vote In tho House,
the Democrats could seat the two by a

of members and that no tribunal could
question Its acts. In explaining the
drafting of the opinion, Mr. Ward told
Iho legislators that a conference with
tho State Judges had been held and that
th reports embodied the unanimous view
of ll members of the bench.
Contests had been launched against
