Senator's Vote Is Expected to
i Run About 10,000 Behind
I' ,That of Doctor Brumbaugh
" in South Philadelphia.
South Philadelphia la "knifing"' Penrose
ipday, but the Vnro stronghold la noi
United In making a slaughter of It. Po
litical lenders estimated nt noon, how
aver, that Tcnrose would run about 10.OTO
behind Brumbaugh In the downtown sec- .
tjon of Philadelphia as a result of the
Varo-Pcnroso squabble.
' In the 26th Ward, the Vares' homo ward.
and In the 1st and 39th Wards Penrose
was cut heavily, and tho knifing also oc
curred In the 30th and 4Sth Wards. Rcp
rcsentatlvo Varo's personal following Is
strongest In these wards, and theso Vare
men today cot their revenge on Penrose
for throwing Bill Vnro down In 1911.
The Vnres have virtually "laid down"
In the fight and the rum Interests aro
bolstering up Penrose's candidacy In that
section. All yesterday afternoon and
until Into Inst night the word was passed
around that Stato Senator LMwIn It.
-Vare, who looks after the Interests of
Ids brother, Representative. William S.
Vare, was Issuing no orders, but It was
Intimated to all Vnre lieutenants that any
division leader who showed a very small
Penrose vote In his division would be "In
The reason given for this Is that the
Vares are "regulars." After Represen
tative Vare, on the floor of Congress,
challenged Senator Penrose to prove tho
truth of the charges made by the North
American that PcnroBe said he, with the
two Vares nnd Senator James P. Mc
Nlchol, had debauched the late Mayor
Reyburn, Representative Vare, who had
been "hand In glove" with the Penrose
McNIchol mnchlno slnco 1911. again
mounted a pedeitnl In tho eyes of his
South Philadelphia followers.
They decided to put the "knife" quietly
to Penrose today, and kill the senior Sen
ator's chalices for re-election.
The Vares "stood pat" on "Brother
Bill's" speech in Congress, and permitted
Penrose buttons to be thrown away, and
the antl-Penroso spirit of revenge, which
had been smouldering since Penrose
throw Vare down in 1911, to flame up.
At tho last minute, however, tho word
was passed that the Vares could not
knife Penrose because they were "regu
lars." All of William S. Varo's personal
following aro not taking any orders that
come as tips from tho Vare ward leaders.
They would not tako them If they came
as orders received directly from either of
the Vares, so strong has their hatred of
Penrose been since 1911.
So today. In nearly every division In
tho Vare bailiwick, voters are disregard
ing tips froi i their leaders and are knifing
. The saloon vote In South Philadelphia,
almost to a man. Is behind Penrose today.
Those opposed to local option, for the
sake of their pocketbooks, are deaf to the
nntl-Fenrose whispers.
No orders have been Issued, they ex
plained, and they can vote for Penrose
with a clear conscience. They received
tho Intimations from the Vnro ward lead
ers with Jubilation, and aro trying hard
to rally tho South Philadelphia vote to
One Vare worker. In the 26th Ward,
the Vares' own ward, said this morn
ing: "Yes, Penrose will be cut all right."
The Vare personal following, he said,
rlll not let this opportunity to revenge
Itself on Penroso pass.
The vote Is heavy In all of the South
Philadelphia wards. In the 28th ward and
n the 1st ward, Vare machine workers
who aro on the election boards, entered
the. booths with voters and helped them
mark their ballots.
Harry C. Ransley, president of Select
Council and Vare leader In the 2d Ward,
eald today that Senator Vare had or
dered his followers to vote n straight
"The Vare orders are not to cut Pen
rose," he said.
"Congressman Vare's statement In
Washington was made for effect. The
Republicans In South Philadelphia, would
vote a straight ticket whether ordered
to do so or not It would be suicide for
them to cat Penrose, as they are looking
forward to the Mayoralty election next
year, and must keep the Republican vote
olid for that."
"There Is a deadlock In this ward," said
one of, the Vare leaders In the 26th Ward
today. "The Penrose vote could not bo
trallled. Vare was born and raised down
here, and when Penrose was credited with
making charges against Vare this section
turned against Penrose and could not bo
farced to vote for him,"
State Senator Edwin II. Vare appeared
en the streets late this morning. He has
been suffering from poisoning In his eyes
and forehead. He visited his doctor and
then went straight to the polling place at
Moyamenslng and Snyder avenues, where
tie voted shortly before noon.
.Senator Vare, after he had oast his bal
lot, said that there -would be no cutting
of Penrose In South Philadelphia.
"I have not been around, of course," he
added, "and do not know just how things
aro comlpg."

Mayor Blankenburg today turned down
nn offer of 100 votes for tho municipal
$11,300,000 loan on the ground ha never

votes was the vote of the Mayor for Pen
rose. The Mayor entered the polling place of
the 17th Division of the 10th Ward, whero
State Senator James McNIchol also votes,
at 21st and Summer streets, about 9:45
o'clock to cost his ballot. Inside the poll

James A. Carey, not the real estate as-
sessor and ox-Magistrate, but a delin
quent tax collector, who bears the same
name and who Is a Republican ward com
mitteeman. "Well, Mr. Carey," said the Mayor,
"are you going to vote for the municipal
"I'll tell you what I'll do, Mr. Mayor,"
said Carey. "If you'll vote for Penrose
I'll give you 100 votes for the loan."
The Mayor smiled and remarked, "I
never trade." Then he obtained his bal
lot nnd went Into the booth. He took
longer than the usual time to mark his
ballot As he came out he turned to
one of the workers and jokingly re
marked. "Split ticket."
Tho usual battery of photographers
wns lined up along the sidewalk.
"Do I have to get my picture takenT"
asked the Mayor "That's all a Mayor
has to do, get his picture taken."
When he "was asked to make a state
ment the Mayor said: "How do I know
what's going to happen? I don't know
anything about politics."
He then got Into his auto, called
"good-by" and was driven off.

Four months ago Carter met J. Ellison
Hess, of York, Fa., In a hotel In this
city. Carter told Hess he had a wire
less station here and in New York and
could beat the result of the races to the
bookmakers. He suggested that Heas

went right home, drew $10,000 from bank
