The vote in Indianapolis probably will prove to be the heaviest ever cast in the state. In dications are that the amount of scratching will prove unprecedented. It is not believed to have been as gen eral in Indianapolis as elsewhere in the state. Few arrests have been made here for attempts at illegal vot ing or for giving away whisky. There has been no serious trouble reported from anywhere in the state. At Evansville both parties were pre pared for trouble. The sheriff had extra deputies on duty and the su perintendent of police had a large force of extra policemen helping him. There were many challenges and ev ery precaution was taken to keep or der. Foreigners Challenged. At Indiana Harbor, 200 foreigners tried to vote and there were many challenges. It was found many of the men were not entitled to vote. Two Italians were arrested at Bloom ington for alleged illegal voting. A negro was arrested at Jeffersonville on the same charge. At Winchester several arrests were made for distrib uting whisky. W. C. T. U. in Ranks. The feature of the day was found at Hartford City where the W. C. T. U. was active in getting out the vote. Men were taken to the polls in rigs and instructed en route how to vote. Candidates who had refused to sign remonstrances against the saloons were made the object of the women's ire and were electtoneered against. Special precautions were taken at Muncie. The Good Citizen's League had watchers at the polls to prevent disfranchised men from voting. Sev eral, a.ttemp.tajwer e. msde to .run. 1 nthla element. At Bedford the democrats challenged many votes. Voting was unusually slow in Clay oounty. The question, of a new court house and free gravel roads were voted upon at the same time. At many cities working men and travelers were on hand before the polls opened this morning. These men were anxious to cast their vote before going to work or leaving the city for other places. There has been intense inter est throughout. Many of the wet re publicans are found voting with the democrats. At South Bend the un usually long time to mark the ticket was regarded as indication of general scratching. Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 3. All day long the politicians have been puzzled in this city over the fact that the vot ers seemed to be voting straight tick ets. No one was able to figure out just what this meant. And another thing that caused much comment was that there was an enormous lot of early voting. In many af the precincts of this city, fully 75 per cent of the vote was cast by noon. This was re markable, and the wise politicians sat up, scratched their heads and asked themselves what it all meant. Not only was voting heavy in this city, but reports from out in the State indicated that an unusually heavy vote was being polled everywhere else. If there was any apathy, during the cam paign it did not last until election day. In this city where voting machines were used, men voted as rapidly as three to the minute. It was evident from the short time they remained in REFUSES TO LET PRISONERS VOTE AND AS RFSULT LIBERAL ELEMENT SCRA TCHES NAME OF SHERIFF MEREDITH The surprise of the lection in this city came when Sheriff Meredith re fused to permit prisoners at the coun ty jail to be voted unless orders for their release were obtained. It has been customary for many years in this county for the sheriff to permit the prisoners to vote. These sheriffs have been republicans almost always. Mere dith's action was so surprising as to bring retaliation. He was classed by HUGHES WIRES TAFT T Sends Congratulations on Vic tory. Albany, N. Y' Nov. 3. Governor Hughes has sent the following tele gram to Taft at Cincinnati My heart Jest congratulations upon your victory. Indiana BULLETIN. Indianapolis Republicans at head quarters give Marion county to Mar shall by 4,000. BULLETIN.

On returns from 90 precincts in the county the republican plurality will be wiped out. Taft and Marshall republicans are in evidence throughout the state. BULLETIN.

Indianapolis Marion county, thirty one precincts, Taft. 7,918: Bryan, 7. 560; Watson, 7,388. and Marshall, 8, 363. the booth that they were not doing much scratching. It was known all during the campaign that there were many republicans talking about vot ing for Taft and against Watson. To do this, of course, they had to scratch their tickets. If they went into the booths and voted straight, as they seemed to be doing, the question was whether they had changed their mind and were voting the straight republi can ticket, Watson and. all, or whether they were afraid to scratch and were voting the straight democratic ticket rather than to lose their vote against Watson. And this was the case in all kinds of precincts. The aristocratic north side precincts in this city seemed to be voting straight, as well as the work ingmen's wards of the south side and the foreign quarters of the west and the liberal element wet republicans and democratic saloon advocates as a Watson man. and his name was scratched. Workers at the polls had prepared sheets of instructions that were given to voters to be taken into the polls with tbem. These contained a list of the men to be voted for. It had been expected originally Mere dith's name would be on this list as he has been held to be a "good fellow." His name was taken off, however, and he went on the black list as standing against the saloon element The deomcrats wanted voters in the jail released as well as republicans and made application to the sheriff. Alonzo Bratton was released upon an order from the court. He is a demo crat. His fine was paid or staid, so as he would not lose his vote. He was sent to jail only Monday. Meredith made the statement he was going to run his office on the square and even if he is a republican and wants to see republicans elected southwest parts of the city. White men, negroes, foreigners and all seem ed to be following the same plan. Republicans claimed this . indicated that the republicans who were dis gruntled heretofore had made up their minds to eccept Wat sou and vote the ticket straight rather than take chan ces on spoiling their ballot for Taft, On tt other hand the democrats were claiming that these republican voters were still opposed to Watson and were voting the straight democra tic ticket rather than ruu the risk of spoiling their ballot. And each rld had something on which to base its claim. This was admitted by all sides. " . - The saloons were closed tight here and as far as has been learned thy were closed all over the state. No trouble has been reported from any place in the state, but the police of this city were looking for It during the evening i some of. the wards in which foreigners vote. Thousands of foreigners were naturalized during the last week or two and It was said they would be brought to the polls to vote late In the day. ' . When the republicans found that rapid voting was being done and that straight tickets appeared to be the rule they brought out' considerable money and began betting or Watson. Several bets were made at even money today. The weather all over the state was reported fine and this helped to bring out a full vote. Clever Scheme Worked. , A clever scheme was worked here to day by some one, presumed to be th democrats. Letters were sent to a large number of colored republicans telling them to select ten of their best workers- In their precincts and go wUhihen.tp fQom, 33. old. Board of. Trade building to meet Capt. W E. English, who wished them to do some special work on election day. The let ters told thSm that they would be sup plied with the "necessary means" for carrying on the work. As a result fully 500 negroes gathered at the old Board of Trade, only to find that -they had been fooled. Mayor Bookwalter and several other well-known, republicans had to explain to them that the letters were forgeries and that it was a dem ocratic scheme to get the- negroes to come down to be disappointed. When they went to room 33 they found pic tures of Taft and Governor Hanly on the wall and the floor strewn with pa per bands, such as are used around packages of paper money In banks, each band marked "50." This looked promising of course, but there was no money in sight. It was acknowledged to be a clever scheme well worked. It is not believed that many negroes voted the democratic ticket, tiough some did. Most of them lined no as they always have done for the repub lican tlckeL Among the republicans rocfidenre was maintained in the general result as far as the national ticket was con cerned. They insisted that Taft will carry the state and that he will hn elected. They were also ' confident of the election of Watson and the rest of the state ticket. But the democrats insisted that the strai;h icket voing indicated a landslide for Bryan and were claiming that Marshall will be elected by a large . plurality. It was admitted on all sides, however, that the complexion of the legislature could not be forecasted. .... he would not permit the voting of prisoners unless properly released. LEFTWICH RETURNS.
