LaH Day for Registration Brings Oat ft
Large Number of Voteri.
Demorratle Central Comsalttee Makes
mm Kffort to Placate the Frleads
of O'Xell, Candidate for
The politicians were working overtime
yesterday and there was more politics to
the square Inch on the streets than there
had been since the opening of the cam'
puign. The candidates and party leaders
seem to realise that there was no time to be
lost with the election only three days oft
and every one was busy. On most of the
street corners were to be seen groups of
men discussing the situation and wherever
a candidate happened to be, whether re
publican or dmocratlc, he had his crowd
with him.
Another cause for the activity yesterday
was the fact that it was the last day for
registration and both parties were doing
their utmost to get every voter registered.
As a result of this work the registration
was heavy and at least 1,000 names were
added to the lists, making about 1,400 names
registered during the three days, of regis
tration. Reports from nine of the twelve precincts
of the city show the following registration:

In order to counteract the suspicion that
the democratic central committee was trad
ing O'Nell for Brooks fleed, Chairman Mil
ler has Issued a circular in which he gives
O'Nell a boost by saying the following: "The
courthouse would seem more like home to
us If we had 'Jlmmle' O'Nell In the sheriff's
office. Brooks Reed as treasurer, the bright
and energetic Warren L. Rankin as county
superintendent, flanked by Sylvester Dye
and J. P. Maxfleld, two of the solldest men
In the county, on the Board of Supervi
sors." It will be noticed that evidently to
appease the wrath of O'Neil's followers the
candidate for sheriff is given the place of
honor in the list of those whom Chairman
Miller thinks would make the courthouse
"homelike" If elected.
Brooks Reed, the democratic candidate
for county treasurer, followed up his ap
peal to the members of the Eagles lodge to
support him, by issuing yesterday a cir
cular letter to the members of the Elks
lodge, which reads as follows:
"Dear Sir: We both being members of
631, Benevolent and Protective Order of
Elks, I hope you can see your way to glvT
me a vote Taesday. November S. I am a
candidate for the office of county", treas
