7,184 VOTERS
Number Qualified on Saturdays
Returns from the registration of
voters on Saturday—the first day pre
limlnary to the election of 1910—show
that 7,184 names were enrolled on the
Much Larger Than Had
Been Looked For
books in Wilmington. Front rural
New Castle county and from Kent and
Sussex counties reports are that the
registration in some districts exceeded
that of two years ago. In Wllming
ton two years ago the registration for |
the first day in round numbers was
7,900. The registration on Saturday is
surprising, as neither party made
much effort to get. its voters enrolled,
although some of the candidates were
busy getting their friends qualified to
vote for them at the primaries. The
registration by wards on Saturday is
es follows:
First ward. 245; Second. 429; Third,
418; Fourth. 386: Fifth. 779; Sixth,!
621; Seventh, 1,185; Eighth. 776; Ninth,
745: Tenth, 617; Eleventh. 323;
Twelfth. 560; total, 7,184.
At the last city election 14.463 bal
lots were cast, and the registration on
Saturday was nearly half of the vote
at the city election. This is taken as
an indication that there is not so much
apathy as many of the politicians
thought to exist on the part of the
voters, and indications are that the
registration will he heavy this year,
even though it Is an "off year." when
neither President or Governor is to
he elected. _
No trouble of any account was re
ported to the Department of Elections,
boards acted. There were objections .
on the part of some men who were |
called upon to produce naturalization
papers. .. . , . _ .

Triple Murder on a Lonely

SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Aug. 8—
That the killing of Enoch Kendall.
his wife and son at their lonely ranch
just north of Santa Rosa, was a grue
some human sacrifice to Shintoism
offered by Manjlro Yamagachi, a Jap
ancse boy who lived on the ranch,
was the startling declaration made
today to Gertrude Boyle Kano, Amer
(can wife of a Japanese poet, and
ward of Joaquim Miller. The dee
11 »ration has caused a sensation in
Oakland society, as an extensive
branch of the cult of Shintoism has
been organized by society leaders
I Mrs. Margaret Starbuck, owner of
the ranch on which the Kendalls were
living, is the leader of the Shinto cult
in Oakland, and Yamagachi who was
a member of the cult, reported to her
several days before the triple murder
was discovered that he had a light
with the elder Kendall. Yamagachi
disappeared, and later the charred
bodies of the Kendall family were
found in an ash heap near the ranch
Mrs. Kano has given no grounds
for her statement that Yamagachi
killed the Kendalls as a sacrifice to
fijg gods, but the police are carefully
investigating this phase of the case,
Ab ypt ,hpre bas l)pp " no arrests and
the search for the missing Japanese
has so far proved unsuccessful.
