"Day and night storms of French

BOSTON. Bept. 21.-Wlth long lilts of
"what to do" end "what not to do" the
voting booths were thrown open today

ing that he sticks all the way to one of
the three parties.
Boston, aa well aa other cities through
out the State, was awhlrl with eleventh

From every section of the State lively
contests are predicted, and In Boston a
close fight Is looked for all the way down

expected, according to the leaders, until
tomorrow. Besides the late closing of
the polls in the majority of the smaller
cities the new-style ballot Is expected

The fire threatened the home of Dr A

begun by the bombardment of Servian positions on the Save and

of the railroad which runs from Budapest through Belgrade, thence
across Bulgaria to Constantinople. The map also shows how com

"Jury Wheel Crime of 1912"
Recalled in Attack on John
B. Hannum, Jr.
A violent nttack ngainst District Attor
ney John B. Hannum, Jr., of Chester. In
the form of a pamphlet report on the
"Jurv Wheel Crime of 1912." was distrib

today by the People's Rights Association
of that county. The District Attorney Is
a candidate for re-election. The report,
which is nccompanled by a letter from
William T Ellis, of Bwarthmorc, presi
dent of the association, states that the
Investigation Into the ulleged Jury whoel
stuffing hss been an Issue in the county
for some time.
The report speaks of the discovery of
the alleged Irregularities, the alleged mo
tive, the nlleged Illegal Jurymen selected
for the December session of 1912 and the
action of the court and the bar associa
tion In calling attention to the alleged
"packing" of the wheel.
L'nder the caption "The Problem Be

"The conviction of these criminals that
Is, those responsible for the alleged 'pack
ing' of the wheel was part of the regu
lar line of duties of the District Attor
ney, John B. Hannum, Jr., under his
oath of office. Judging from the facts
given above, the problem before the Dis
trict Attorney was a relatively simple
one, compared with tho difficulties of fer
reting out criminals In general.
"Not only did the District Attorney
have before him an easy problem In de

Further evidence of the alleged obstruc

of the county" and states that It Is pre

tens of the county, to aid them In per

to have "Judge Franklin Stone," promoter
of the famous 20,000 Story cotton
swindle, recommitted to the Eastern Peni
tentiary for the four years Bentence Im
posed upon him In 1903.
When this sentenco was Imposed, the
"Judge," whose real name Is Frank C.
Marrin, was released under ball pending
an appeal. Subsequently, he was arrested
In New York for swindling a woman, and
for the latter crime he was sent to the
Auburn prison for a term of from 12 to
A week ago he was released from the
Auburn Jail on parole and was Immedi
ately arrested by Charles J. Kammer
mohr. United States Marshal. Extradi

a legal tight on the part of the "Judge,"
he was brought to this city last night.
He was taken before Judge Thompson

asked to preside at the trial.

TENDERLOIN FOR SMITH
According to the officer of the law, who

Ilai-e nnd Clarion streets, where the
pasty-faced denliena or the Tenderloin
are lurnlmr out sleepily to demonstrate
their allegiance to "Lord Jim MoNlehol."
there's nothing to the maorauy election
but Tom B. Smlth-Hmlth as solid as an
Iceberg In the far Arctic regions.
According to the officer of the law who
pi on a tirrHd-box outside of the gro
cery store at 43d and Locust streets,
v.here West Philadelphia comes to the
poll staid and deliberate, with real reasons
bncked by real convictions for marking
up their ballots the way they do, tha
next Major of Philadelphia Is going to
be an Individual who spells his name
Down In South Philadelphia, where the
electorate discusses Its political affilia
tions In strange, foreign tongues In which
"Vare" Is the only Intelligible word, the
guardian of the public peace and morals
thinks It's a sort of T6 to 25 proposition
with Smith on the happy end.
COPS AS BAROMETERS
All of which Is but one way of saying
that In this election the police are the
rolltlcal barometers who merely register
the conditions of the localities In which
"Smith's got a clean beat." said one of
the bluecoats detailed to duty In the Ten
derloin, "and the funny part of It Is that
he's got the police department too, nlmost
to a man. Judging from the talk I've heard,
and a man usually votes the way he tnlks,
"What makes It funnier Is that every
man In the department Is willing to grant
that Portcr'a done a lot for tho department-gave
us the three platoon, with the
eight-hour shift, one of the whitest things
a director ever did. If Porter's Mayor, it's
practically a dead cinch that our pay'U
bo raised from 93 a month to 100. But
somehow or other the boys believe that
Smith's the best bet. They got a hunch
and they're playing It."
"POLITICS AS CROOKED AS "
At this momnt a qulvery, trembly sort
of gentleman, with an election noe nnd
an uncertain gait, came out of aft alley
and made his way toward the poll.
"How drunk does a man have to be?"
I asked, In my Ignorance, the loquacious
"cop," "before he Is refused entrance to
the polling booth;"
The cop laughed a cynical laugh and
spat Into the butter, disgustedly, before
"There ain't no limit. Just so he knows
what he's doing and remembers his In
structions. All I've got to do Is keep the
peace. It ain't my business to arrest any
of them unless they get rambunctious.
Politics Is as crooked as " The keeper
of the peace became qulto profane and
It was plain to see he had no Illusions
regarding what political scientists are
npt to call tho highest civic duty of tho
Traveling southward, you don't find
Ideals on a much higher plane, and al
though the Mh Ward, whose other name
Is "De Bloody Fifth," presents a peace
ful picture compared to that of a decade
or so ago on election day, yet despite the
desolate and pessimistic air worn by most
of the places where tne reslaents are ac
customed to taking their liquid refresh,
ments, the habitues of the polling places
walk with none too steady a tread.
Out In West Philadelphia I had to ask

1 41th Streets where the nearest polllriB
plat was berore l rounn on. w..u v.m

vidual gentleman, who had the air of
having fend his morning paper, expressed
considerable surprise when toHxmA
from my question that an election was In
progress. No, he didn't know where the
voting was taking place. The second
drove a grocery wagon, and said he ".VTili

said when he got time to vote he went W
to West Chester, because he had to pay
tax up there, and the fourth astonished
me by his clear and accurate Information.
"Walk down two squares and up two,
he said, "and you'll come to It."
nnoMLsr on the job
I did, and came to It. Also to B. Gor

of tho entrance to the poll, the Demo
cratic mnyoralty candidate wore a non
lommlltnl expression as he leaned his
head down and confidentially chatted
with an orstwhlle voter, and tho officer
who set within a distance of several feet,
took no pains to conceal his cordon!.!

"Not a ghost of a chance for Bromley,
he sold emphatically, Porter's tho man
out here. He's got a good rep' and that's
what these peope like. Me? Oh c, I
guess I'll vfrte for the Director, he's been
a good sort, but Vt got my friends who
can't see It that way. It's Smith for
them or nobody. They think It's going
to be a gnng administration and they
want to be In at the start. That's politics
for ou. And say. Potter and Bromley
may be on the ticket, but what chanco do

Retired Old Gentleman Reappears
and City Has Rain
Old Mr. Jupiter Pluvlus early today
made a brief and only slightly success
ful attempt to tome out of the shell In
which he has been In retirement almost
a month, nnd Phlladelphlans saw the
sight, now become unusual, of wet
pavements when they arose from their
beds today. Not since the Inst of Au
gust has there been a good rainfall, the
entlro precipitation tor the month being
less than a quarter of an Inch. The rain
fall today was .1? of an Inch, ,15 falling
since S o'clock. No more rnin Is expected
today. There were many heavy rain
falls In sections surrounding Philadel
phia, but anything even faintly re
sembling what might be called a heavy
slower carefully avoided this city.
Although there Is nothing on which to
base a contradiction of the Weather
Bureau's statement, that the hot spell
of last week and the week before has
passed, the weather Is rather uncom
fortable and sticky today. The ther
mometer was nt 72 this morning and the
humidity 91 nt 8 o'clock. A breeze mov

from the south. The temperature fluctu
