present congressman, and J. Alpheus
Van Sant.
The contest has been one of the most
bitter over held In Southern New Jer
sey. The polls were open from G p. m.
to S p. m., and the three hours were
marked with serious fighting. Ono man
was killed in this city, and "Joe" God

pugilist, of Philadelphia, was probably

Pensnuken township. Another man was
dangerously stabbed in this city, and a
fourth man received stab wounds at
"Dog corner," near Merchantvllle.
Goddard was at a voting place In
Pensauken townrhlp when he was shot.
He was with a number of men who
were traveling from one polling place
to another. The pugilist got Into a
quarrel with a colored constnble named
Robert Washington. It is alleged that

Each side had a crowd at the polling
place at that point, and a general riot
was started. When It was all over, It
was found that a man whose Identity
Is not yet known had been shot through
the heart by some unknown person and
a policeman, not In uniform named
Harry Miller, had received two cuts
on the head and a probably fatal stab
wound in the left lung. There were a
number of other persons in the fight
hurt, but not seriously so.
At midnight both sides claimed the
election, but the returns up to that time
from the three counties indicated that
Van Sant had secured a majority of
the delegates. The adherents of both
Loudenslager and Van Sant are charg
ing each other with fraud and with
bringing large numbers of repeaters
