Chicago, Dee. 4. "Th ballots of
m-n long residents of other cities, the
ballot of temporary absentees, the.
ballots of the insane and even of the
dad were ea.st In the primary election
of last August In Chicago. 'Repeaters'
voter In platoons with th5 connivance
of wilfully unseeing judges and clerks
of election, and fraud, rampant to an
extent hitherto unknown In Chicago,
rendered the resultant party nomina
tions morally worthless."
These and other startling allega
tion. were made to-day In the report
of the special grand Jury, which, after
several weeks nf delving Into charge-,
growing out of Chicago's first prim
aries and returning eighty-one Indict
ments against two score or more of
politicians and other persons, adjourn
ed. The Investigation, owing to phy
sical limitations, merely scratched the
surface of the situation, according to
the report, and donht Is expressed that
there has been an honest city or gen
eral election In Chicago In years.
The findings of the Inquisitorial
body characterize the primary election
as a disgrace to the city. Voting ma
chines are urgently advised, as a step
In a remedial direction, and a wider
application of .civil service. Tt Is
stated that while the jury cannot af

such. On the other hand the report
remarks the fact that although the
police were near every polling booth
the investigators received no aid from
them In seeking to fasten responsibil
ity for the conditions which prevailed.
Referring to the fact that Frank J
Loesch, special state's attorney ap
pointed to perform his public duty
without compensation, even drawing
on his own purse for necessary ex
penses in one Instance, the report
eays:
'.'We denounce the men who have
thrust upon the pounty the shame of
forcing Mr. Loesch to perform his
public duty without, the compensation
to which he Is entitled and which,
thus far, he has ably and consequen
tially earned."
"We find, and so report, that no
confidence can he placed In the re
ported results In favor of, or against
any candidate for-a. party nomination
at the primary election, and yet that
election cost the taxpayers of Chica
go fully $75.nnn."
While there has been no formal cau
cus of the members of the next leglf.
lature from New Haven county, still
i' has been almost decided and can be
said on good authority that ihe next
county commissioner will be p. Walter
Talten of North Hav.n and that
George v. Miller, who was appointed
after the death of K. Foote Thompson
will bo retired. Further than this It is
stated that line of the present county

held
lrg-
Althongh the public hearing
hy the aldermanic committee mi
Islatlon lasted only about a quarter of
an hour last night the committee held
a very lengthy ex"cutlve session af
terwards in conjunction with the cor
poration counsel at which a number
of Important changes In the charter of
the city were considered, approved
of and prepared with favorable re
ports for the meeting of the board '
aldermen on Monday night. The first
one which wa heard at the public
session was that submitted by t1
hoard of park commissioners askln.:
that th" special a-t referring to that
department be amended or suggested
to tlv legislature for amendment wi
as to allow th. board of aldermen and
the board of finance to appropriate as
much as one-third of a mill from the
taxes each year for that department
and also to alter tlv charter so that
the park board may make purchases
of land and nthr property without
the consent of the board of aldermen
which Is at present required by the
charter.
The present act permits the grant
ing of but one-fifth of a mill from the
taxes each year for the park depart
ment. This makes a maximum. In
this section the committee de. bb d
to grant the petition of the park
board and to permit tlv appropria
tion, if the legislature passes the
amendment of one. third of a mill a
ear if tlv board of finance and tlv
board of aldermen see tit. The third
section nf the present act reads thnt
tlv department shall not expend more t worn
than unit on any one paik. Tlv I (hour
park boa'd wanted this changed and
the committee win report in favor of
changing this maximum to read $,
nnn. The fourth section permitted the
board of finance to make an extra
appropriation of money not otherwise
appropriated, to the use nf the psrk
department, not to exceed $7,ono for
the year 1901 only, and this section
amended will strike out this maxi
mum and allow tlv appropriation of
any such sum that may seem deslrnj
hie for anj .oar Instead of Just a
single year.
President Henry T. Rlake of the
park board appeared In favor of the
petition. He explained the reason por
the request w hich was mainly that the
board needed more money to properly
care for the park system. He said
that at present the park board Is pur
chasing land without permission ex
pressly of the board of aldermen
