( Special. ) The Ho- publican State Central cotn'tnlttcc has re ceived Information from reliable sources In different putts of the a nto that the man agers of the popocratlc campaign will put Into operation on election day a pliui by which It Is hoped to carry the dny for Hoi- comb , Irrespective of the actual votes cast or the wishes of the voters. It will be by ' . f the same kind cf a scheme that was devised I if by J. II. Hdmlsten and used to count In the Bupremo judges by the Infamous recount fraud of 1SS7. A change cf n tew votes In , ; - | cnch voting precinct of the slate will change 4 I the result of the election ami the word has Rene out ever the slate from thu popullBt headquarters In this city that fvo or thrcn votes must he gained at each polling place. to make mire of the election of Silas A. ' < llolco'mb' . The. sama thrct ) men who engi neered the recount fraud are In absolute con trol of the popacratlc machinery unrt their plan will be at once recognized. For the past two or three weeks the chairman of the populist committee has teen sending out letters to commlttecmen ' In cnch county , Impressing upon them the necessity of desperate work and Informing them that n plan would bo proposed later by which Holcomb could be elected. Several ! of these letters mlscnrrled end fell Into the i bands of republicans nnd were published. One of the methods used very effectively toy Edmlst'en nnd his crowd In re-marking the ballots In 1897 Is known as the "double cross" or "double shuffle. " It la simple 111 operation and hard to detect. It was de scribed In detail by E. L. Simon before the senate Investigating committee. The per son handling the ballot holds a short pencil , not over half an Inch In length , between the 'thumb and forefinger , and It Is com paratively easy to mark n cress on a ballot while It la belni handled nnd ballots so marked nnd re-marked are , of course , thrown out , It being shown that crosses were placed otter both candidates for a single office. It will bo much easier to re-mark the new ballots this year , as they are arranged In euch a way that the boxes for the voter's crces appear near the edge of the slips , which will permit the person handling them to put In additional creeses with less danger of being detected than before. ! ! oiv It Wan Done.
