a favorable report upon the question of

"Bat the men back of the Federals
now know what it means to go into
baseball. They have not found things
just as the promoter promised.
"I tell you candidly, nothing defi

matter. I am to meet again in Chica

BEMKES BLUNDER IN
LUMPING GOVERNOR VOTE
County Commissioners Return Sheet of
Election Returns With No Distinc
tion Being Made as to Respective
Through the printing of the election
return sheet of the vote cast at the last
election, by the County Commissioners
of Berks cpunty, the Washington, Key
stone and Personal Liberty parties of
that county will not have their vo'e
added, as parties, to the returns as made
out at the State Department in order
to determine the relative standing of
the political parties. In making up the
vote in Berks county, duo to the incor
rect blank, the votes given Mct'ormick
iu the Washington party were added to
the Democratic votes an.l all classed as
Democratic. In making up the vote for
Brumbaugh the votes cast for that can
diilate by the Keystone and Personal
Liberty parties were all placed under
the head of Kepubtican and so returned
to the State Department, which has no
means of separating them In order to
see how many of each was cast.
Coder the law a party receiving two
per cent, of the vote cast for the hea l
of the ticket in State election years is
entitled to a separate column and can
nominate at the primaries, ft is not
known at present .just how the action
of the Berks officials in lumping the
vote of the parties under one head will
affect the standing of the three parties
in question, but if the vote of Berks
cast by these three parties is necessary
to make up the two per cent, of any of
them lor separate place on the ballot,
is is likely that an effort will be made
to have the returns corrected.
The law distinctly says that the
vote of each party must be returned
separately as cast for each candidate
