Fat Other Patriots in Charge
Tbo Board of Election Commission
ors lias appointed 10,000 Judges and
clerks of election to servo at elections
In this moat Important presidential
year. Tho Brundago and Thompson
supporters claim that tho Doncon (ac

Tho 25th ward Republican commit

about tho Judges and clorks. In tho
21st ward, anothor Brundago district,
tho patronago has boon given by tho

this was rcsponsiblo for tho dofoat of

judges and clorks of election and in
other wards was allowed half of tho
