punishment for the offense. There was
no appearance of the complaining wit

ELECTIOX IX ST. PAIL MARKED BY
ITS QUIET FALL OF
NO DISTURBANCES AROUND.
PEOPLE GOT OCT EARLY, VOTED
AXD WEST ABOUT THEIR
CUTTIXG THE LOCAL TICKET.
Much Uncertainty About tbe Way
the Vote Was Going- in the
Election day 1896 was distinguished
by two facts In St. Paul— the most or
derly election and the early vote, as
well as the per cent of registration
voting was the largest in the history
of the city. The weather was ideal
until late in the afternoon. The sun
came out early, and there was a brisk
southwest wind blowing, but there
was less of frost in the atmosphere
than the weather man promised. All
over the city all classes of voters went
to the polls early. In the big First
ward, where the laboring vote is
heavy the per cent of early voters was
not larger than in the Seventh where
the voters are mostly business men
who usually get down to business af
ter 8 o'clock. At noon in every pre
cinct more than 60 per cent of the vote
had been polled. By 3 o'clock less than
20 per cent of the voters had not put
in an appearance. Both parties had
provided carriages and other vehicles
to get out the delinquents, but the ne
cessity for their use did not develop
during the day. Patriotism alone was
sufficient to call out the voters. There
was no disturbance reported at any
polling place. In the booths every
thing moved quietly and rapidly. There
was little conversation and very little
electioneering. The voters came to the
polling places with their minds made
up. They did not have to be told what
candidates to favor, nor did they take
long in marking their ballots. A close
watch was kept in some of the booths,
and it was noted that the average time
for each voter was less than two min
The city was remarkably quiet. On
the streets, in the hotels, about the
union depot, the day was even more
quiet than on a Sunday. But the pa
triotism of the people was every where
manifested. From every flagstaff there
was a banner floating. In the busi
ness district as well as in the resi
dence portions of the city flags and
the portraits of candidates were flung
to the breeze. At the headquarters of
the parties there was absolute quiet.
Aside from a few idlers there was no
one about the places except those who
were preparing the blanks to tabulate
the returns as received. Chairman Ros
ing, of the Democratic state central
committee, went to his home at Can
non Falls to vote and returned early
in the day. He reported greatest in
terest in the election in that village
and predicted great Democratic gains
in Goodhue county for, he said, the
Democratic vote in his town was 50
per cent heavier than ever before.
In the country, tco, the deep interest
In the elction was shown in the heavy
and early vote. Word was received
from all the country precincts about
noon that more than half the vote was
already polled at that hour. At 4
o'clock the last of the 280 voters regis
tered at North St. Paul deposited his
ballots. So the word came from all
over the city and county.
The early indications were that Lind
would r«_ ahead of his ticket in the
First ward and that Chapel would fall
behind. McKinley and Lind seemed
to be the sentiment among the Swed
ish voters of the ward. In the Second
ward the Republicans claimed the
heavy vote, more than half the regis
tration being heard from before noon,
would result favorably for their candi
date. On the contrary the Democrats
claimed that Wagener was running
ahead of Chapel in the ward and that
ho would carry them and other Demo
crats along with him, promising a good
Democratic majority. In the Third
ward the voters were not so active.
Less than half the registered vote had
been cast at noon, but ln the afternoon
the candidates did seme lively work,
and before dark most of the vote had
been polled. In this ward it was impos
sible to form an estimate of the drift
of sentiment, but the Democrats, who
have been claiming the ward from the
first, were confident that the count
would show a majority for the Demo
In the Fourth ward the vot'ng was
lively up to 10 o'clock and then' there
was a lull. The rush began again after
3 o'clock, and from that time on until
7 o'clock, ther? was a rush at every
polling place. The Chapel men made
themselves conspicuous in several of the
precincts and were finally denied ad
mission to the polling places where
they were too much in evidence The
Democrats claimed the ward all day by
majorities ranging from 200 to 600.

There was no means of learning how
the votes were cast, but it was believed
that the labor vote was strongly for
Bryan. It was claimed, however, that
Chapel would run ahead of his ticket
and the Henry Johns would defeat the
Democratic candidate for the legislat
The Fifth ward was slow, too, but in
the afternoon the deficiency of the
morning was made up. The ward is
Democratic normally, and there was
every Indication that it would not de
part from party traditions.
In the Sixth voting was lively, both
sides claiming a victory. In the Sev
enth the early vote was the heaviest in
the history of the ward. More than
half the vote was polled before 10
o'clock. At noon two-thirds of the
vote was accounted for. There were
not many Bryan shouters. Indications
pointed to a complete poll.
A more quiet and orderly election was
never held in the Eighth and Ninth
wards. But one instance of disturb
ance was reported during the entire
day. Men came to the polls with minds
made up, and with an apparent real
isation of the issues at stake in both
national and state affairs, cast their
ballots according to their preconceived
cpinions. There were no arguments
tending to provoke partisan ire, and,
save for the few loiterers who hung
about the booths, a casual observer
would scarcely have realized that an
election was in progress, The cam
paign of education of the past few
months had done much toward the
molding of opinion, and every man
who possessed .the right of suffrage
had made his decision before entering
the booths to register it on his ballot.
As was to be expected from the heavy
registration, the voting booths were
crowded from the time of opening un
til well after noon, when the rush
was somewhat less until between ■»
and 7 o'clock. In most of the preclncto
two-thirds of the vote had been cast
SOME ILLEGAL VOTING.
One Case Was Detected in the Fourth
The city clerk and his assistants
were busy all day yesterday furnish
ing additional supplies needed at the
various polling places throughout the
city, furnishing the judges of election
with such further information as they
required, and answering countless
questions from all sources.
Before the noon hour the city clerk
was caled upon to supply 140 additional
ballot boxes for use in over half of the
precincts, so rapidly were the voters
polled. This condition of affairs ex
isted in the crowded precincts, where
the ballot boxes were filled to their
capacity within four or five hours after
the polls opened. In all these cases the
city clerk furnished the judges of
election with two additional ballot
boxes, in which to deposit the national
and state tickets and the county ticket.
Several cases of illegal registration
Avere revealed, and in seme instances
the parties whose votes were challeng
ed called at the city clerk's office in
the hope that the mistake by which
they were registered in the wrong pre
cinot might be rectified. They were
much disappointed when informed that
nothing could be done for them. A
number of instances of this character
were reported from the Fourth prec
inct of the Fourth ward. In one case
the vote of a citizen who was regis
tered in this precinct, though not a
resident cf it, was deposited in the
ballot boxes before its illegality was
discovered. The judges sent to the city
clerk for instructions as tc the proper
proceeding in the matter. They were
instructed not tc disturb the ballots,
as in the event of their subsequent
contest, the courts would pass upon
There was a dispute in the Seventh
precinct cf the Eighth ward, the first
thing in the morning, over the select
ion of the two ballot clerks. It ter
minated in a "scrap" but fists were
the only weapons used, and the trouble
was smoothed over without appealing
to the city clerk for a decision.
Supersedes the Republican in a
Xlnth Ward Precinct.
O. A. Nordquist, Republican clerk ot
election in the Eighth precinct of the
Ninth ward, was superceded by a Dem
ocrat, Frank Nipper, yesterday. Nord
quist did not arrive at the booth until
just 6 o'clock and when he walked in
be was informed that he couldn't servo.
This was not the first time that Mr
Nordquist had been appointed a clerk
of election, and he knew what his rights
and duties were. At previous elections
he had not come until 6 o'clock, and
he could hardly be required to be there
until the booth opened. Mr. Nordquisc
said that he should contest Nipper's
light to serve or draw pay for tho
day's work. The Repu>ll<-ans who were
looking after the ward were early ap
j rised of the discharge of one of their
clerks. They sent extra men to watch
the balloting at the precinct, and kept
them there during the count.
EACH HAD SWITCHED.
Example of the Breaking of Party
An incident illustrative of the break
ing of life-long party ties caused by
the issues of the campaign occurred
outside the booth of one of the Eighth
ward precincts yesterday morning. Two
men, each apparently over sixty years
of age, handed in their ballots and left,
the booth together. "Well," said one,
a rock ribbed Democrat, to the
other, a Republican, "I suppose you
voted for McKinley."
"No sir, I did not," replied the Re
publican, "I never voted for a Demo
crat before in my life, but Bryan got
my vote this time."
"Well. I declare," said tho questioner,
I *_ay father before me voted the straight
Democratic all his life and up to this
' election I have followed his example,
and no Republican ever got a cross op
posite his name on my ballot, but to
day I voted for William McKinley."
The two old gentlemen were friends
who had long known each other's po
litical faith and the mutual confes
rions caused them to laugh heartily,
but back of their mirth was a forci
ble commentary on the power of con
viction over party partisanship which
has marked the campaign just ended.
AT PEOPLE'S CHURCH.
Fair Sex Happily Entertained by
Returns were received at the People's
church until midnight and announced
to a gathering composed during the
first part of the evening of nearly all
McKinley people, the feminine part of
the audience being in the majority.
Later the Bryan sympathizers were in
evidence. The returns, cast on a huge
white canvas, were received with
mingled cheers and hisses. That the
McKinley pople predominated one could
not doubt from the applause and cheers
which greeted returns ln his favor and
the wave of hisses with which any
thing at all ln favor of Bryan was re
ceived. During intermissions in the
programme there were selections by
Mrs. C. B. Yale, Mrs. S. V. Harris,
Percy Churchill, Harry George, vocal
ists, and Leonard A. Strait, reader. The
programme offered was an attractive
one. A number of patriotic songs were
also given by the audience, the quar
tette of vocalists leading. Refresh
ments were served all of the evening in
the parlors below stairs by the women
of the church.

in St. Paul yesterday, notwithstanding
the great increase in citizens, who wen r .
to the polls, but it was more than made
up for by the mighty shouting, tooting
of horns and screeching of whistle.
during the reception of the returns,
end way into this morning when th_>
fnal result was posted on the big white
sheets. Not for many moons has the
interest in the election been so keei
at during the campaign just closed.
In spite of the weather clerk, the day
was essentially a Republican one, cleai
and cold. The nipping air forced the
spectators to button up their collars
and jump about to keep warm. Bryan
partisans by this token kept the warm
est. All over the business part of tht
city were returns received, at the the
aters, at the Auditorium, and at tht
newspaper offices, but Newspaper Row
caught the crowd. Democrats, Repub
licans, Populists and free silverites
there were and to spare. As if to prow.
j cither a greater general interest, or
i that the better element among voters
| were concerned as to the outcome
! many of the fair sex donned their
| street clothes, came down town and
j craned their necks as eagerly as the
ward politicians or street gamin fo;
! the very latest bulletins from Nebraska
or the bloody Eighth ward. Not a
i few of St. Paul's representative women
i rubbed shoulders with the crowd of
j men and smiled at the good natured
! chaffing which was being bandied
' i ound by men of different polinical
beliefs. Early in the evening when
the returns began to come in from
I\ew York and Chicago, the small mul
lltude gathered at the intersection oL
Fourth and Minnesota, and, with com
mendable patience, watched the tell
tale figures being thrown against the
v hite background. It was fun to watch
the effect caused by the everehanging
reports. Perhaps not strangely all of
the street Arabs and newsboys wort
solid for Bryan, and at the slightest
jrovocation would break out in the
most vociferous cheers. They were not
alone either, for many of their elders
cheerfully greeted bulletins in favor
of the boy orator of the Platte.
When, however, the wires brought
news of McKinley's having carried
several Nebraska counties, the other
contingent let go, and responded in
The cable cars were driven through
the crowd at intervals, without -the
slightest difficulty, and the half-dozen
stalwart blueeoats had little to do be
yond watching the returns. Not the
least entertainment was furnished by
the people who make inane remarks.
For example, one woman, clad in a lux
urious fur cloak, asked her escort If
Mr. So and So would really move away
from Minnesota if Lind were elected.
There were other comments equally ab
surd. Men talked about newspapers
being bought by the gold-bug bankers;
England sending money to be used in
Bryan's campaign, and all that sort of
thing. The Eastern and Southern
states reported early, the figures from
the cities and larger towns coining in
first. "Rah! Rah! Rah! Rah! Rah! Rah!
Rah! Rah! Rah! McKinley!" or
"What's the matter with Bryan?"
were the cries that rent the still cold
air at frequent Intervals, while oc
casionally an enthusiastic follower of
Clough or Lind would howl like a
"Oh, when Indiana comes ln for Mc-
Kinley I'll go home. ' or "Bryan didn't
do a thing in Missouri." "What do
you think of Lind in Otter Tail
county?" and kindred remarks livened
up the long, tedious evening, and the
crowd waited through it all until the
long wished-for final report came ln.
Then there was din and bedlam un
restrained, after which the tired,
hoarse people wended their various
