The members of the Fourth District
Committee declined to vote, not de?
siring to pass on their own actions, j
Had they taken part, the vote would'
have been 19 to 2.
State Chairman J. Taylor Ellyeon [
thereupon declared Walter A. Wataon
the nominee for the House of Re pre-!
Foor Haara ad Areusaent.
For four hours the committee, sit- j
ting In Use Jefferson Hotel, heard the ?
argument and evidence in the case.
The testimony was all reduced to the
form of affidavits, so that nothing but
pleading remained. E. P. Buford. of j
Lawrenceville. alone spoke for Repre- I
sentative Robert Tarnbull, the contest- '
ant. while Judge Watson, the coo-!
testee. ?as represented by Riohard
Evelyn Byrd and Richard H. Mann,
the latter of Petersburg. Each aide'
took two hours.
Mr. Buford argued for a strict in?
terpretation of the primary law. so as!
to count only such ballots as were,
marked according to the provisions of'
the general statute; contended that'
the eight negroes who voted for Mr.;
Turnbull in Brunswick were lawful
voters, that the law was administered ,
with partiality in Dinwiddie County.!
where men who had voted for an in- J
dependent candidate for the House of -
Delegates last year were permitted to
take part in the primary, and as?
serted that many persons voted who-'
had not properly pa:d their poll taxes.
In return. Mr. Mann went over the I
evidence in detail, to show that many'
of Mr. Turn bull's charges were un?
founded, and that where irregulari?
ties existed, they cut both ways, really
making a slight gain for Judge Wat-j
son. Mr. Byrd pointed to the section
of the act providing that it should
be liberally construed, so that the win.
of the electors shall not be defeated!
by Informalities, and denounced the
voting of negroes in a Democratic.
Judge Watson's msjority, as deter- j
mined by the district committee on
a recount, and by throwing out all
the negroes, is twenty-eight votea j
District CssnsaMtee l^adnfraus.
As soon ss the State committee had,
been called to tprder by Chairman
K l> son, the findings of the Fourth
District Committee were r- ported by1
its chairman. Robert Gilliam. It set
fo.-th that in the recent primary there
were unusually few irregularities and.
no frauds. The committee had elimi?
nated the votes of eight negroes who
had voted for Turnbull, and one who
had rot id for Watson.
It appeared, aaid Mr. Gilliam. that
Republicans had voted, a fact of which
the district committee had disapproved.
Rut the specific proof was lacking, aad
the committee felt that the judge*
familiar with local condition* aad
people. posstMy knew what eras tost.
Starting with the ertaiaal eight
majority for Watson, four were added
on a recount of ballots, aad seven
more on voM votea. It was found
that eight persona with bo legal
right to the ballet bad voted lor Tum?
bu.1 and four for Watson. Altogether,

Mr. Dodge was the first witness j
?worn. He said he knew nothing at I
the campaign funds of 1*04. Hia
knowledge of the 1?08 funda was lim-!
tted to his own contribution of $500:

a crushing handicap in the forthcom?

The precise terms will not be avail?

the Christian peoples: nj Indemnity

diplomatic and commercial relations.
During the last week there has been
doubt aa to whether the war, whlcn
has lasted for more than a year, would
be brought to a peaceable close. A
definite understanding was reached yes?
terday, when, on the arrival of a spe?

conference took place between the del?
egates representing the two countries.
Italy declsred war against Turkey
on September 29, 1911, snd promptly
invaded Tripoli. A blockade af the
coast of Tripoli and Cyrenlca was
begun by the Italian fleet. Various
coast towns were bombarded, and In
a naval battle many of the Turkish

State's Attorney Zabel Gives
Specific Reasons for Post?
THINKS PRISONER IS SANE
Selects for Scene of His Crime
State Where There Is No
Milwaukee. Wi*., October 15.?State's
Attorney Winfred c. Zabel, of Milwau?
kee County, to-night definitely an.
nounced that John Schrank. Colonel
I Roosevelfo assailant, would not be
I brought to trial until after the na
[ ti-onal elects aa. November 5. Ho said
the trial would be opened some time
I between November 11 and 15. Mr.
j Zabel, who was said to be the only
j Socialist State's attorney In the conn
try, gave specific reasons for his deci?
sion to pot off the trial for one month.
He said first, it was only reasonable
to await the results of Colonel Boose
volt's injury; second, he had no desire
to crowd the defendant, and third, he
gave It as Ms opinion that it would
be unwise to call the case during the
1 final struggle In the presidential cam?
"It 1? my desire to try this case
Justly and expedUtoualy." aaid Mr.
Zabe!. "and to avoid having the plain
criminal, aspects of the case in any?
way Involved in the national political
campaign, it would not be fair to any
of the persons involved. If we went to j
trial before election day. it is almost
certain that the matter would be!
dragged into the campaign of one ort
another of the big political parties" j
Discussing the case as viewed by |
him. the Milwaukee County prosecutor j
aaid that as far as surface indications
are concerned. Schrank was sane j
Tf Sc&rank Is insane." said Mr.
Zabel, "It seems there !e a method in*
hie madness when he selects for the
scene of hie crime a Stade where there J
la no capital punishment. I
Me la in llj fa Fasatly.
"Also, I am Informed by messages ?
from New York there has been no'
insanity in Schranke family as far'
as can be traced. In addition, the man
presents none of the uaual surfacs In?
dications of Insanity." J
The State's attorney said he believed
Schrank had no accomplices or advis?
ers in the crime.
The plea of guilty filed by Schrank
at his preliminary hearing in the Dis?
trict Court this morning is looked
upon as merely perfunctory hy the
police prosecutor's office.
"I shall permit Schrank to withdraw
that plea when he goes to trtsl if he
