District Attornoy Issues Warn
ing to Those Contemplating
Trickery at Polls
Dtetrlrt Attorney Ttotnn hn.i repeated
his warning, given before prunnr.v rice
Hon, against violation of the election
laws for tomorrow.
Tti n statement lie calls attention to
various features of the law anil espe
cially warns aliens not. to attempt
to vote, reminding them of the inves
tigation he is now making Into eligi
bility of those who were prompted from
the draft and who voted at the pri
mary. IIo also warns against Interference
or intimidation of voters, and against
policemen coining within fifty feet of
nn election place unless to mnke an
arrest or to preserve order.
Kntan'.s Warning
Tlis statement follows:
"The approaching general election
prompts me to renew the statement
which I made liefore primary election
respecting the rights of citizens In the
exercise of the franchise anil the rights
and duties of election officers, city em
ployes, policemen and other persons
having to do with election.
All election nflioers nre privileged
from arrest while performing their du
ties on election day, except on wan ant
Issued by a judge of n court of record,
and no election officer can be arrested
on election dny on a warrant issued
by a magistrate.
"A police officer, whether In uniform
or otherwise, has no right to lie In or
about any polling place, or within fifty
feet thereof, either during the count
ing and preparation of the return, ex
cept to make an arrest or to preserve
lntlnild.il Ion a Crime
"It is a crime for any one to as
sault or intimidate any voter during the
holding of an election, or to attempt
to influence or overawe a voter, or lo
prevent him from voting.
"It is the duty of every magistrate
or police official, having in custody any
one charged with crime, to furnish the
nocuscd or his counsel, free of chnrge,
with a copy of the chnrge so that bail
may be catered for the accused.
"No voter can bo assisted in mark
ing his ballot unless he declnres to the'
judge of the election that he has a
disability and by reason thereof needs
assistance in marking his ballot.
"A voter is guilty of a crime who
falsely declares that he lias disability
and therefore needs assistance. He is
likewise guilty of a crime if he allows
his ballot to bo seen by another person
with the intention of letting it be known
how he is about to vote."
"Aliens have no right to vote, and if
nny foreign-born person, unnaturalized,
attempts to vote, lie will he prosecuted.
I n in investigating charges that a
largo number of persons who claimed
exception under the draft law as aliens
have registered and will attempt to
vote at the general election without
having since been naturalized, and I
especially warn all aliens who attempt
to vote without being naturalized that
they will be vigorously prosecuted.
"The district attorney's office will be
open on election day for the purpose
of protecting citizens in their legal
rights, and I will be ready to secure
prompt writs of habeas corpus in cases
of illegal arrests.
"I call upon the law-abiding citizens,
in case they see nets of intimidation,
thuggery and other violation of the
law, to obtain the names and addresses
of tho law-breakers and the names and
addresses of any witnesses who may be
present and to promptly report to me
so that the arrests may be prompt and
the prosecution and punishment swift
and certain. To this end I pledge the
power ol my on ice.
Forstmann & Hoffman Declared In
nocent by Merton E. Lewis
'Sew York, Nov. II. Julius Forst
mann and tho firm of Forstnuinn &
Hoffman Co., who were accused of br
ing: Involved in flerninny'H "wool plot''
exposed by the State Department's dis
covery early in 1918 of tlm "linns Smith
letters" to the imperial government,
have been declared innocent of all blame.
In a letter to their counsel, made pub
lic last night, Merton K. Lewis, for
merly state attorney general reversed
.his opinion by which on April t, l'.HK
he nproved a subordinate's finding that
they were disloyal citizens.
The Forstmann & Hoffman Co. was
mentioned among other persons nnd
firms in the Smith correspondence deal
ing with n plot to buy large amounts
of wool here for war shipment to Ger
many. Alfred Ij. Pecker, then deputy
attorney general, reported that in his
opinion Julius Forstmann was involved
In the "wool plot."
Mr. Lewis's letter declared that "anv
public officer may inuke a mistake in
war times when quick action is required
but where it appears that an innocent
man hns suffered with the guilty, 1
feel it my duty to my so and express
my regret."

Aside from tho possibility nf disloy
alty, the average worker who has been
m city politics for many years believes
in the honesty and fairness of Con
gressman Moore. As nn old-timer
put it today, "llampy knows the game.
He's n good fellow, and 1 don't be

I.onlt for Nn Onrral Cleanup.
I'.aeli four years new alliances nre
made in City Hall and changes of sonic
powers result. The situation this year.
uowever, is iiitn-ii more involved nan
oruinnrny. ami rnr that reason most
persons on the city payroll are a bit
anxious as to the outcome or the bal
loting of their particular districts to
morrow. That Congressman Moore plans no

the city, even though appointed through
the power of the Vnres, believe thev
have little to fear nt the hands of the
new Mayor.
The forty-odd clerks of Councils arc
in a peculiar position, in thnt their re
lention or dismissal depends entirely
upon tun new organization of Coun
cil, as it is believed that many of the
positions will be found unnecessary
under a Council of twenty-one mem
bers. As the sheriff's office, now in full
control of the Vares, is not under civil
service, most of the employes of this
department expect the "gnte." They
are busy looking for new berths else

Trial of murder and assault to murder
charges against more than 100 negroes
for nllegcd participation in the recent
race disturbances near Elaine, a small
Jown in the southern part of this county,

In addition to the cases against the

ratry in connection with the disturb
ances, which resulted in the killing of
five white persons, n score of negroes

Acrobatic Art Collector Spurns Cost

Paris, Nov. II. Following the mys
terious theft of a 1100(1-year -old I'bon
iiicinn gold chain from a show case in
the Louvre, the Paris police are 'look
ing for an acrobatic art collector.
They say the thief must be an ac
robat, because the theft was accom
plished by climbing up tho otitsido of
the Louvre to the top door. He must
be an art collector, because he ignored
jewels of great worth in nearby .show
cases and took only the chain, which is
ut littlo intrinsic value.

clambering back to his seat. Sauter
stood on the running board of the truck
to direct the drhcr. Four other Muing

The hilarity was stopped suddenly by
a frightened cry from one of the men
on tho running board.
"Watch the trainl My (iod. watch
nut for the. train!" he called. The
front wheels of the truck had humped
over the rail as the live men on the side
jumped nnd panic gripped those within.
A medley of cries and moans reached
the cars of the engineer as he franti
cally worked at his throttle and brake
Passengers Heard Crash
Passengers in the two coaches which
comprised the train heard the crush
of the collusion. There i.s n bridge
jus bej und the Clarkboro crossing,
and the conductor at first thought the
train had gone through the bridge.
When the train crew and passengers

been killed outright. Modie.s were
jammed in n heap and crushed limbs
trailed over the edge of the wrecked
Four of the iiiasnueruders had been
hurled to the ground by the impact,

When the extent of the tragedy was
realized men und women passengers
devoted themselves to the injured. The

age and laid in a line along the road-
Women Isc Skirts as liandages
Women ripped up their skirts and
petticoats for bandages, twisted tourni

Telephone calls were sent for auto
mobiles and for physicians. The crash
occurred nt 11:1,'! o'clock nnd twenij -live
minutes later doctors began arriv

Word was sent to Camden and a spe

either in justice, in right or in It n -inanity,
in The Manufacturer, a weekly

The article crftlcizes the strike vote
