The committee of the city council on ways and means met Friday afternoon for the purpose of taking action on the question of voting machines There were four - machines exhibited to the committee for Inspection, the Winslow, Columbia, Standard and Abbott. The representatives of a Topeka firm asked the committee to postpone action until they could have their own machines set up. This firm is a Kansas com pany in which several Topeka men are interested. All the machines except the Colum bia have bells which ring when the vote is cast. Mr. Barr, the representative of the Columbia, tells why their machine has no bell. They used to put bells on the machine, but one time at an Indi ana election the bell got out of fix and refused to ring. A man came to vote and when he turned the voting lever the bell kept still and the voter thought he had been buncoed out of his vote. He Immediately began to hunt trouble and- the election judges tiad a hard time convincing him that his vote had been registered and that the bell had nothing to do with it. Since the bell really was of no practical use the makers quit putting it on so now the machine has no plaything bell attachment. The committee after considering the machines has recommended the pur chase of Columbia machines. It is thought that 15 machines will be suf ficient when the precincts are changed to fit the new plan. Until then the com pany offer to allow the city to use eight extra machines in the other precincts. These machines cost $700 apiece and can be paid for in installments of $700 each year, the debt to pay 5 per cent Interest after the first payment. This machine is as simple as any of them in operation. The voter can vote a straight ticket by simply using one lever. If'he votes straight he can cast his ballot in about five seconds. If he splits his ticket he must turn down the pointers on the candidate ne aoe not want and turn up one in tne same vertical row. Not more than one In a vertical row can be turned at a time so that a mutilated ticket is Impossible. The keys In the machine are three In number and are divided between the Judges and the election commissioners., It takes all three Keys io open tne ma chine nd so It Is difficult if not im possible to tamper with results. In fact it would require a' board that was en tirely corrupt before any tampering could be done. The use of the machines greatly reduces the expense of elections and makes it possible to get the count In a very short time after the closing of the polls. If a voter wishes to vote a candidate that is not on any ticket ho must turn the lever releasing a paper roll on which he writes the name of his candidate. If this is done it manes necessary more counting. NEW SANTA FE TIME CARD. Arrival and Departure of Trains In Topeka Under New Arrangement.

LOOKS IX TOWxVoR YEGG MEN", Sheriff Wilkerson Thinks There Are ' Some in Silver Lake. After putting in most of a day In working on the blowing up of the safe in the Union Pacific ticket office at Silver Lake . on. Thursday night or early Friday morning. Sheriff Wilker son returned' to the city this morning and stated that he had been unable to find any clues or evidence which would Indicate who pulled off the trick that netted the robbers ' but about thirteen dollars. "Sheriff Wilk erson said that it was his opinion that the safe blowing had . been -accomplished by persons within the ; town and not by outsiders. "There are four or five men, who hang around that locality," .said Sheriff Wilkerson, "who are more or less suspicious characters and who have had no apparent means of sup port but we. could find nothing which would warrant the arrest of any of them. "This is the third safe that has been blown open and robbed In Silver Lake within the last eighteen months. The first one was at Kelly's store and but a small amount of money was secured. The second safe to be cracked was in the office of a lumber yard and not a cent was found in it. "The robbers got about $12.50 out of the L'nlon Pacific safe and ther also burst open the cash drawer and secured thirty-seven cents in change. It is a peculiar coincidence that the three safe crackings were all pulled off on rainy niehts and that Is one thing which leads to the conclusion that they have been the work of per sons within the town. All of the safes were blown open in the same manner and tools were used on each occasion which had been stolen from the local blacksmith shops." Sheriff Wilkerson mav go to Silver Lake within a day or two to put in some further work on the case. Mrs. Seymore Sus for Divorce. Fannie E.
