The First Evidence.
The first tangible evidence of irregu

election came to light yesterday when
a policeman in uniform walked into the
office of District Attorney Jerome, car
rying under his arm a ballot box
wrapped in a newspaper.
The policeman told'Mr. Jerome the
ballot box had been found accidentally
in the rear of a barbershop in the up
per part of the twenty-first assembly
district, which had been used as a poll
ing place.
According to information obtained
later, the ballot box was one that had

Minneapolis today bore testimony to
the great fruits already borne by the
evangelistic campaign'. This was the
day designated by Dr. J. Wilbur Chap
man, the evangelistic leader, as the day
of prayer. Business men and women
by the thousand gave up the usual
pursuits and pleasures of the noon hour
to attend gospel meetings in the thea
ters thruout the commercial district.
There they were addressed by differ
ent evangelists, in brief, earnest expo
sitions ofbiblieal texts and appeals for
both individual and civic righteousness
Prayers full of sincerity were offered
by ministers and laymen, and the audi
ence at each place had quiet moments
for individual prayer.
In all some 5,000 persons attended the
noon meetings in the five theaters open
for services. The vast majority of
those in the audiences were business
people, representing all professions, all
fines of trade and all grades and kinds
of employees.
Early Prayer Services Held.
The noon theater meetings were but
a fitting sequel to the special prayer
meetings held thruout the city from
8:30 to 9:30 a.m. in all the leading
churches, each pastor presiding mhis

points a Commission to Save
the Despondent.
Journal Special Service.
Cleveland, Ohio, Nov. 10.Mayor Tom
Johnson, alarmed at the official report
that there have been eighty-six suicides
in Cleveland in the last "nine months,
has taken steps to check the carnival of
self-destruction. He has appointed a
commission,, whose duty it will be to
attempt to dissuade would-be suicides
from taking their own lives.
The commission is made up of Direc
tor of Charities Cooley, W. A. Green
lund, as member of the charity bureau,
and State Senator-elect Howe.
Write a Letter for Help.
Every man or woman in Cleveland
who is contemplating suicide is invited
to write a letter to the antisuicide com
mission and tell ther troubles. The
members of the commission will then,
make an effort to remove the trouble.
For people despondent from non-em
ployment, the commission endeavors to
obtain employment, while the needs and
wants of others seeking aid are locked
after. All three men are experienced
in such work, and their labors so far
have proved satisfactory.
In discussing the subject further, Mr.
Cooley said:
''The number of suicides and at
tempted suicides in Cleveland is appal
ling. The need of some means to coun
teract the condition has been felt and
we have expressed our willingness to
aid anyone who is in the depths of
despair and to whom life no longer
seems worth loving.

Statute Provision Threatens

Defective Pag*
Journal Special Service.
Washington, Nov. 10.The govern
ment has struck a snag in the prosecu
tion of the Chicago packers -that threat
ens to swamp the^ entire case and leave
the attorney general and his assistants
without any prisoners to prosecute.
Under the provisions or the organic
act creating the department of Tabor
and commerce, of Which the bureau of
corporations is a part, the sections of
the interstate commerce act "relating to
the taking of evidence and immunity
apply to the investigations carried on
by the commissioners of corporations.
The La That Applies.
This section fe$rtfta **No person
shall be. excused &<} testifying
from producing b.o$ papers, etc., on
the ground, or |o^i|e' nelson that the
testimony or evidence," documentary or
otherwise, required of hhn may tend to
incriminate or subject him to all pen
alty or forfeiture.
"But up person shall be prosecuted
or subjected to any penalty or forfeit
ure for or on-j-account of any transac
tion, matter or thing concerning whidh
he may testify or produce evidence,
documentary or otherwise, before said
commissioner,". etc.
Immunity, Bay Packers.
In this section is the immunity that
the packers claim Commissioner Gar
field promised them. If a strict con
struction of this section is made by
the court, and the showing can be made
that any of the information obtained
by Mr. Garfield from the packers, vol
untarily or otherwise, formed the basis
for the indictments of the packers, the
supreme court has held in the Counsel
man case, there can be no prosecution..
It was given out at the department
of justice that the plea for immunity
would be contested, but upon what
grounds no one would say.
Minneapolis Hebrews Will Discuss
Tonight Measures to Stop
Russian Massacres.
With their people the victims of the
worst series or massacres the world has

stirring themselves to send relief to
their stricken brothers in Russia.

horror of that affair is said to be com

the frightful carnival of death which
has reigned in the Jewish quarters of
Russia in the past few weeks. In Odes

to death by frenzied crowds of igno

Just what will be done in Minneapolis

the impetus to a great relief movement
has been received in the form of a
telegram from Jacob H. Schiff of New
York to Jonas Weil of 724 New York

national Jewish committee of twenty
on civic rights. The telegram received
this morning reads as follows:
"On behalf of national committee

treasurer, we urge you and your asso

Mr. Weil said today that the fright

St. Petersburg, Nov. 10.Stories are

Jews are marked by a red cross.
