fciamsburgs Candidates
,n Break Custom of Years of
Arriving at the Polls Early
in Day.
"HARRISBURO, Nov. 3. Both of Hnr
risburg's candidates for a State office
voted this afternoon at about the samo
time In the same ward, though In tllf
ferent precincts.
President Judge George Kunkel. can
didate for the Supreme Court, Instead
Of voting early In tho day, ns has been
his custom, waited until his eldcit ron,
George Kunkel, Jr., arrived here from
Lancaster, where he Is a student at
Franklin and Marshall, the Judge's own
alma mater. Tho younger Kunkel cast
his first ballot today, voting on ngc, and
was accompanied to tho polling placo nt
the Hopo Flro L'nglno House by his
vVanco C. McCormlck, Democratic
Washington candldato for Governor, also
usually votes early In tho day, but was
unable to leave Kaston until UiIh morn
ing after tin closing meeting of tho
campaign last night. As soon as he
reached this city he attended to a fen
personal matters and then went to his
polling placo in a tailor shop on Locust
street near Federal Square.
3Ir. McCormlck and Judge Kunkel Ilu
within two blocks of each other on Front
slreot. Both are In tho ith Ward, but
the Gubernatorial candidate l In the 1st
Precinct and the Judge In the 2d.
"air. McCormlck had little to say about
tho campaign.
, "K can only repeat what I have been
slatlnR for davs," he snld when he step
ped from tho train nt the Heading Termi
nal here. "This fight Is won and Pon
Wselsm Is wiped out. Mr. Palmer and I
ajro .elected."
Judge Kunkel declined 'any comment at
nil, preserving tho tamo silence which has
marked his campaign throughout tho
aprlng. summer and fall. His campaign
chairman, John It. Geycr. hnd little more
tp say except to predict the Judge's elec
tion. .'."Our campaign has been entirely nn
educational one." said Mr. Geyer. "We
Imvo endeavored to Impress the voters
first with tho importance of the Supremo
Court and, socondly, wph the method of
voting tho non-partisan nectlon of tho
ballot, which is not familiar to many of
th voters. We have succeeded In this,
and Judge Kunkel's magnificent record
Iti the Capitol graft cases and other suits
assure his election today by a handsome
:Veathcr which can bo described only
a "Ideal" prevails here and the vot?
IS phenomenal. Throughout the city the
polling was heavy from the stnrt and nt
tfoon It was estimated that between no
nnd 60 per cent, of the entire registered
vote had been cast. Some residential
precincts had polled half their vote by
10 o'clock this morning.
TteportB of similar heavy voting are
comlr-S In from all parts of Dauphin and
. adjacent counties.
"'Republicans and Democrats alike are
jubilant over tho heavy voting, each side
asserting that such weather wbb all
that was necessary to clinch their vic
tory beyond a. doubt.
' Heports of ballot corruption In this city
are as thick as usual, but they are with
out confirmation. Up to noon no reports
or any sort had been received from any
part of the State at Democratic State
headquarters. Cards bearing the offer of
U Palmer-McCormlck Leaguo to pay
JjO.000 reward In sums of from $250 to
$1000 are posted In virtually every poll
ing precinct In the State, with Instruc
tions that evidence should be reported to
Democratic State headquarters at once.
Continued from Pane One
"Ward and division leaders In that sec
tion give as the reason the fact that
the badges of the Penrose machine work
ers do not bear the union label, while
those of every other candidate did.
The vote In Richmond In the early
hours was 30 per cent, above normal.
Reorganization Democratlo leaders de
clared this morning that the "Old Guard"
Kt Democrats and the Vare machine men
were giving their watchers trouble. The
TJomocratlc watchers' certificates In Phil
adelphia are under the supervision of the
regular City Committee, which Is domi
nated by the "Old Guard."
Reorganization leaders asserted that
the Ola Guard refused to grant watchers'
certificates to Palmer-McCormlck League
watchers. The reorganizes then got In
touch with the Prohibitionists, and ob
tained watchers' certificates from that
party. "When these certificates were pro
sentrd downtown, In the 1st Ward es
pecially and the 33th Ward generally, the
reorganizes said the Vare workers on
the election boards refused to accept
them, and the watchers were ejected
from the polls.
A complaint was received ay tne i'aj-
Tner-McCormlck League that In the 2Uh
Mvlsion of tne 39tn ward political wont-

Mayor Appeals For Voles
For Nov Loan Ordinance
Maor Blankenburg appeals to Phll
ndulphlaus to ote for tho new loan
ordinance. He declures tho passage
of tho loan bill is iiceessiity to carry
out vitally needed ImpiovcinenlH and
make the city a "bigger Philadelphia."
He says:
"I ask every good citizen of Phila
delphia to make a special point of
marking bin ballot In favor of the loan
for $11,300,000, for which approval of
tlio public Is asked at the election to
day. Improvements vitally affecting
tug the Intciebts of tho citv are nt
stake; rapid transit, new docks, new
cwers, now streets all that contrib
utes to a city's health, happiness and
prosperity, nro covered by tho new
work projected. Do not fall to mark
a cross on your ballot In the square
marked 'Yes'; this will mean a vote for
tho loan and for a bigger Philadelphia.
The beginning of Philadelphia's vnat
plan of modern transit facilities hangs
today on the decision of tho 'otcia In
the matter of tho ill,3flO.O0Q loan item sub
mitted for their approval.
Ono item of a half million dollars In
the list of 31, making up the total ap
portionment of the loan, provides for the
reconstruction and relocation of sowers In
the central part of tho city.
This reconstruction Is tho preliminary
step. If the loan does not pass a start
cannot be made on the plans for ade
quate facilities until other provision In
If the loan Is legalized by the votes of
Philadelphia tired of hanging on straps
for long periods every morning nnd even
ing, the subway-elevated Hystem will
have advanced to something more than
It will mean that Philadelphia eventu
ally 1b to have a subway north and south
under Broad street, with a great delivery
loop running through the heart of the
buslnecs district. It will also mean rapid
transit via an elevated line tu Krankford,
rapid transit to Darby along another
West Philadelphia elevated and other
Improvements that will put Philadelphia.
In the forefront of American cities as
regards transit facilities.
At the present time only one bectlon
of Philadelphia has rapid transit, and
that is the district fed by tho Market
street subway-elevated lines. Not all
West Philadelphia may take advantage
of this because of tnsutllclcnt crosstown
The subway-elevated trains morning
and evening are crowded to the doors.
Surface cars on 6M and 60th streets,
which distribute the passengers, are also
crowded far beyond the point of com
fort. In the north and soutli sections of
West Philadelphia residents use the sur
face lines, or tbe surface-subway, and
make faster time than If they used the
subway-elevated and the crowded cross
town lines.
An elevated line to Darby from 33d
street will automatically relieve the
Market street elevated from the crowds
living nearer Woodland avenue, who now
ride up EM and 60th streets to the Market
street "L."
This will enable the Market street line
to provide better service for those liv
ing north of Market street who now use
the slow surface line.
In the gTeat Northeast no one who lives
there needs to be told the need of transit
facilities- The same U true of the north
errt sections of the city which will be
fed by the Broad street subway with Its
outspreading elevated "feedera."
Ardent supporters or tne plana lor real
rapid transit In Philadelphia were disap
pointed when Councils failod to appro
priate more than H90.0W of the bit; loan
for the work.
At the same time, it U pointed out by
Director Taylor that thia sum is suHl
cltnt to complete the work for which it is
set aside. With the out of the
way the engineering dlfflcultUa will be
considerably icasesed. Tho start will
have bees made. Barly rapid transit for
PhHidelphla depends on tbe aettoa of the
vetera today.

Tho Chief Executive rose early and had
a hearty breakfast before being whirled
to the train in one of the big White

Houso policeman behind his hand.
"There's no quitter nbout him."
Only a fow persons, forewarned of the
President's departure, had gathered to
wish him au revolr. To these few tho
President doffed his hat, and walked with
springy step to the private car Federal,
on which ho was to make the Journey.
He was accompanied by a secretary and
the usual guard of secret service opera
tives. Early today expert wire men from one
of the telegraph companies arrived at the
Kxecutlve Office and began a systematic
test of all the telegraph loops and Instru
ments. Tho telegraph operators In the
President's business rooms probably will
be as busy as any in tho country tonight,
for a full report will be sent through
them to tha President as the returns
come In.
However, the master of the White
House may yawn about 11 o'clock and
disappear. He did exactly this on the

Refuses to Comment
Senator's Strength.
Dr. .Martin G. Brumbaugh, Republican
camlldnto for Governor, today predicted
100,000 majority for himself, but refused
to comment on the possible Penrose voto.
"I hao not been following the Pen
rose voto closely," ho said In answer to
Doctor. Ilrumbaugh otcd at S:5G
o'clock nt I'SI West Haines street, which
Is tho polling pluce for tho 47th Division
of the 22d Ward. He stepped Into a
booth vacated a minute before by DI
rector Porter, and JO seconds later de
posited ballot No. 91 in tho box. Doc
tor Brumbaugh voted tho straight Re
publican ticket.
Whon the candidate reached the polls

home, 254 West Walnut lane.
When lis entered the polling place tho
watchers greeted him with "Good morn
ing, Governor."
"How do ou do," said Doctor Brum
baugh. "I want to vote."
At this moment Director Porter emerged
from behind the curtain of a booth and
said, "Good mornlny, Governor."
"Hello, George," replied Doctor Brum
baugh, "I think I'll use your booth."
"Help yourself." wus the reply.
Doctor Brumbaugh when asked niijjjt
the probable result of the election said
it would go only ono wny Republican.
Then he posed for his photograph and
laughingly remarked. "This is the last
time any person will pick on me."
After voting, Doctor Brumbaugh went
home to answer correspondence. He had
muny letters to which he wished to make

Pittsburgh had already written to him
extending congratulations.

WASHINGTON, D. C. Nov. 3.-Threo
of tho survivors of the Aldrlch organiza
tion, which for so many years dominated
tho Senate, may be retired to private life
today by the voters In their States In the
first popular election of United States
Senators. They nro Holes Penrose In
Pennsylvania; William P. Dillingham, In
Vermont, and Jacob H. Gallinger. In New
Hampshire. Dillingham's defeat Is lrtually con
ceded by Republican leaders. Ho is op
posed by Charles H. Prouty. formerly
chairman of tho Interstate Commerce
Commission, Progressive nominee In
dorsed by the Democrats. Reports re
ceived In Washington Indicate that
Prouty will win by a hafo majority.
Senator Dillingham was elected In Octo
ber, UK).
In Now Hampshire, Representative Ray
mond 13. Stevens, Democrat, has been
conducting nn aggresslvo campaign
against Senator Gallinger. He has at
tacked Gallinger on the ground that ho
Is thoroughly committed to everything re
actionary. He has pointed out that In
August, 1512. Gallinger and Reed Smoot,
of Utah, were the only two Senators who
voted against bill prohibiting corporations
from making campaign contributions. Ho
also has mado political capital out of
the tuct that Gallinger voted with
Penrose, of Pennsylvania, against the Im
peachment of Judge Robert W. Archbald
nnd that he voted against the measure
for the creation of the Children's Bureau
and against the resolution offered by
Senator La Follette In August. 1912, pro
viding for an Investigation of the charges
against Senator Penrose in connection
with his dealings with the Standbrd Oil
Palmer's campaign against Penrose, in
(Pennsylvania, has attracted greater at
tention throughout tho nation, however,
than have the contests against Dilling
ham, In Vermont, and Gallinger, In New
Hampshire. In fact, one of the chief
accusations against the New England
Senators has been that they have been
found voting with Penrose on legislative
If Ponrose Is re-elected to the Senate,
his title to his seat after March -i net
Is certain to be challenged by the Demo
crats and Independent Republicans like
Norrls. of Nebraska; Kenyon, of Iowa,
and Clapp, of Minnesota. When Congress
reconvenes In December, Senator Norrls
will insist that the Privileges and Elec
tions Committee report to the Senate his
resolution providing for Investigations of
the collections and expenditures of the
Senatorial candidates In Illinois and
Pennsylvania. If the charges that large
sums of money have been contributed to
Penrose's campaign by tbe liquor dealers
of Pennsylvania are proved, Senator
Penrose stands an excellent chance of be
ing expelled from the Senate.

drastic nuarnnltne which the Federal au
thorities have placed on cattle In Pennsyl
vnnla, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan and In
diana, in an effort to top tho spread of a
dangerous disease which has been dlscov

from shipments out of the State. At the
Philadelphia stockynrds nnd other places
In tho city thousands of cattle are being
held In pens nnd freight cars, while thou

City Controller Buddenly Decides to
Sign Warrant.
Director Norrls has again been recog
nired as the official head of the Depart
ment of Wharves, Docks and Feirles, de
spite the adverse opinion of City Solici
tor Ryan. City Controller Walton, who
had decided not to pay Director Norrls
because of this opinion, auddenly changed
his mind today.
The signing of the warrant by the City
Controller came as a surprise to Di
rector Norrls. He was preparing to file
mandamus proceedings in the courts to
morrow. "I guess they know I wns rlghr when
I said that holding an office as director
of the local branch of the Federal jte
sere Bank nnd the position In the
Mayor's Cabinet was not a violation of
the State Constitution." the Director said,
smiling. "I don't know what else could
havo caused such a sudden reversal of
Members of the Police Pension Fund
were gratified at the news that Director
Notris wns to receive his salary, as more
than two-thirds of it Is donated to the
fund. Director Norrls has given his en
tire salary as a member of the Mayor's
Cabinet to charity. After expending cer
tain sums In private charities, he turns
the balance over to the Police Pension
Director Norrls, who had obtained
opinions from many prominent lawyers
as to nls status, was convinced he was
not violating the law as Mr. Ryan had
said. He characterized Mr. Ryan's
opinion as "technically run mad."
City Controller Walton declined to die
ouss why he changed his mind ond signed
the warrant. He said he had mailed
the check for J8JX3U to the Director.
Amound the City Hall it was believed
Mr Walton's action followed a confer
ence with City Solicitor Ryan, In which
It was pointed out that the opinion was
not given for the Controller and that
it had never been presented to Councils
which asked for It. and therefore it
would not be legal for the Controller to
withhold nay.
Just what action Councils will take In
tbe matter is yet to be seen. Jf they
deoide to agree with the opinion of the
City Bolieltor. Director Norrls' check for
this month will not be forthcoming oa
December h The matter will then b
given to the courts to deeide.
