This is whdt Frankeberger told th$
jujdy transpired there, his authority
for such a statement being, accord
ing to his testimony, the statement
of his father-lc-law, that Jones en
gaged the rear room of the shop as
an election office, it being two doors
(60 feet) from the polling booth.
Here, said Ihe witness, Jones person
ally met the voters on election day,
instructed them how to vote, and,
it was testified, paid them for their
votes. Martin, Frankeberger said,
told the latter that he scraped off
some paint on the glass pain of the
door, and, looking through, watched
the work. Two weeks ago, or there
abouts, the witness said his father
in-law told him Jones showed the
butcher the alleged poll list he had
used to check off the voters he is
charged with having bought. Mar
tin, seeing his name at the bottom,
said the witness erased it, even
though the notation/ "f5 office rent"
was made after toe name.
City Attorney Denies Stdry.
It was this information which
Frankeberger testified today he took
to Jones' office Saturday, and with
which he obtained the alleged con

such a thing and has said he would
tell the truth if asked by the grand
