SWEETHEART Frank Wagner of Gary Fires 5 Times at Fifteen Year Old Girl One Gary man Is dead today and his fifteen year old sweetheart Is confined at the Mercy hospital suf ferins from five bullet wounds In her body, inflicted before the ardent woer fired three shots into his own body, causing instant dead. The dead: Frank Wagner, 2519 Madison at- 25 years old. The injured: Sort Kovoclch, 15 years old. 2516 Madison st. The tragedy occurred about sevn , o'clock Saturday evening. It is un derstood that Wagner had asked the girl's parents for her hand in mar riage, but on account of her age they refused. With this refusal and the fact that the parents had intended sending the daughter away to a girl's insti tution this morning. Wagoner drew a revolver and fired five shots into her body. He then turned the gun on himself, firlifr three shots. Death resulted instantly. Wagoner, who was employed at the sheet mill, had been keeping company with the Kovoclch klrl for some time. Her parents did not object so much to his company, but refused to consent to the marriage at this time, and asked Wagoner to wait until she was older. Following the shooting, the girl was rushed to the Mercy hospital, where seven wounds were found and her condition seemed critical. Her condition was somewhat improved this morning, however, and there is a light chance for nor recovery. i I - i a, J & " " i k - ' ti MAY- COU DAY OVER THE NTRY WAS PEACEFUL BT W. H.

AU Is set for the big day tomor row over Lake county, with, fine weather .promised.. i dominations or candidate iov wi nces ranging from United State senator to constable will be made by the republican and democrat!'?, parties in Lake county and Indiana , at the primary election. At the thB voters will elect pre A cincS committeemen and delegates to the state conventions. The elec tion of precinct cornrnitUemen will, lead to a determination of the con trol of party organizations, and the election of delegates to the statu conventions will lead to the adopt ion of party platforms and to the nomination of certain candidates for state office not made by the direct vote of electors. BALX.OT3 ABU LAHQE Candidates for nominations are nu- merous this year in most coumies and townships and hence tne pri mary ballots will be large. Th elector that does not make Inquiry before the primary about the quah' . fications of the candidates may confronted with the names of many persons of whom he has never hoard and he is likely to ba puzzled when it comes to marking a ballot. The polls will be opon front fi a. m. to 6 p. m. Because of the many names on the bal'.ots, especially i ;i Lake and In other populous coun ties, it will take several hours to count the ballots, and all tfte win ners may not be known for two or three days. There will be more bal lots to count this year than in ihe primary of two years ago because of the enfranchisement of women." For each of the two parties gov erned by the primary law there is a separate ballot, and when the voter goes to the polls he will ask for the ballot of the party with which he n affiliated. First on tho ballots will t the names of candidates for the nomi nations for United States senator. The contests for nominations lop this office have commanded th highest interest. This is particularly . true, on the republican side where the contest is between Senator Harry S. New, now serving his first term, and Albert J. Beveridge, who was in the senate from 1S9J to 191V BOTH STDE3 COSTIDEUTT . On the eve of the election the man agers of both Senator New and Mr. Beveridge, e-f course, predict victory for their respective candidates. The Beveridge managers profess to be lieve that a big primary vote will be helpful to their candidate, this idea being based presumably on thr theory that the vote usually influ enced by the republican organlzn tion is for Senator New and that thai strength Mr. Beveridge shews in the primary must come from the vote ia "oa in -v-, . . rtt tlift r r r :i !1 i .

Outside, the Interested camps of the two candidates the prediction most commonly heard is that Sena tor New will be renominated, but there appears to be a wide variation of opinion as to the majority he will receive, the figures ranging from 25,000 to moro than 100,000. The pre diction that Senator New will win Is usually reasoned out in this waj ; By reason of the fact that he has served only one term, he has made a record that has not been attacked seriously from any source; lie lias worked in harmony with the Hard ing administration and openly es poused its cause to such extent that his defeat would practically be a re pudiation of It as far as Indiana iv--publlcanlsm Is concerned; he has for many years been active &nd promi nent In the party; he will get vir tually the full strength of tha or ganization vote.
