County Clerk Culbcrtson is ob- se'rved by the election officials in each voting precinct, lolans and Alien countains will learn the definite result of the election early on the day of November 6. While it has been possible in the past to secure enough figures to determine just who^niong the candidates were elected, there has often been an' exasperating wait to learn how the county voted on some l>articular issue or on some particular state or national candidate. If the elections In the past had been at all close, say with only a margin of some ten to twent}' votes between certain candidates the announcement of the actual result, so far as it could be certainly made known, would have been delayed until the canvass of tho returns by the board of county commissioners Tliis conditicn could, of course, have been avoided had the election officials jobserved the custom of sending to the county clerk, along with the sealed ballots a complete summary of the vote. But, generally there has been a. failure to do this in several ^of the precincts and the election officlRJs who have sent-te the summaries have 'hurriedly made out their report and tnissed the vote on candidates in whom (he most interest was manifested. For iastance,. at the August primary, an lola ^vard returned a 6ummar>- showing the vote on everjf candidate save Stubbs and Curtis for Seontor, the very oftlce in which most TOers •^Fe anxiously interested. The result was. that while it was known a day after the election that Curtis had carried the county by a large majority it was _ because the Senator received such -a ' heavy vote that the missing precincts could not materially change the count. Had tlie contest been close, an irritat- •in^ di 'lay would have followed in determining the result so fi'r as Allen county was concerne <l. In order that the puhlir ui.ny have . a fairly good reiKirt of th*- rosult of the election on the day following. County Clerk Culbertson. who is now • preparing to send out election supplies, has includ'-d in the bundle to be sent to each voting precinct a personal request that the several boards make it a point to see that the summary of the votes cast be properly made out and sent, unsealed, tothe county clTk with the remainder of thn retprns. * With this last word before rhem. the clerk ;hoi>es that the election boards will not forget and seal the summary ' in with the poll books nor fail to send in a complete summary as contemplated by the election provisions. If this request meets with unanimous compliance, it will be possible for the press representatives to call at the clerk's office on the day following the •dection and secure a fairly complete report of the returns. In the past, reporters and public have battled 'with a hopeless task in attempting to obtain an unofficial report short of three or four days after election.. The interest in the election this year is perhaps greatest in many years and the Register "hopes to be able to meet the demand for prompt returns by making every possible arrangement for prompt returns from every precinct, in the county. ' Both the Democrats and the Uepub- licans ar'! confident of carrying Allen county and (he candidates and the comniitifcs areworking night and day now and wil! i-outinue to do so up to and includinc election day. A SI KPKISK KOK JIIM.E S.MITH. lola I'ortland Defendant In an Action Filed Today by F. R. Blssrli for the Bondholders. Alleging that tho lola Portland Cement Company had defaulted In the paynicnt of $60,000 as interest upon its two million dollar bond issue from May 1, 1312. to the resent date, F. R. Bissell. trustee for the bondholders through his attorneys Camplmll and Goshorn. brought suit in the district court this morning to foreclose a mortgage given to secure the bond issue. The petition does not name the persons holding the bonds but asserts that payment was to be made to the iComnionwealth Trust Company, of St. l^juis. The plaintiff,sets out the usual allegations n a foreclosure proceeding and specifies the property and equipment held under the mortgage. The time of the bond issue and the rate of interest follow and foreclosure proceedings are brought upon the allegation that the terms of the mortgage have been violated in tho non-payment of interest. Sheriff Kerr served the notice of suit on officials of the company early today. The foreclosure proceeding is the legal phase of the action of last Saturday when the lola Portland plant was surrendered to the bondholders with F. R. Bissell as trus* -e.

Oct. 30.—"Mr. Sherman's death is a question of only a few hours." said Dr. Peek soon after leaving the Sherman home shortly before noon today. At 3 o'clock this afternoon Mr. Sherman's kidneys were still unacting and his life was sustained apparently only by the patient's great vigor. Mr. Sherman was delirious when he awoke a few minutes this morning and he relapsed into a heavy sleep. •The information Is riot given out freely, but it is understood a comatose condition continued practically uu- broken throughout the day and that the uremia remains unchanged. Under the influence of opiates. Vice President Sherman slept through the night and apparently was comfortable this morning. Dr. Peck, who remained with him throughout the night, failed, however, to note any real betterment. "His condition is unimproved and therefore very grave," he said this morning. At 6 o'clock last night Dr. Peck issued the following statement relative to the condition of his patient: "For the past week or ten days Mr. Sherman's friends and physicians have felt a great deal of solicitude about him, and for the past three or four days his uremic condition has caused a great deal of alarm. After a very disturbing day yesterday he fell into a natural sleep at 11 o'clock and slept until 5 o'clock this morning. This afternoon there has been a recurrence of his disturbance hut for the larger part of the afternoon he has been resting quietly." The Kecister lias concluded arr^npe ments with the Associated Press by which election returns will be tclc- graplu'd to thi.s office next Tuesday night. .As the polls close in the East earlier than here and machines facU- itaie the count, it is expected that the dopesters will be able to anticipate the results by midnight, but in Kansas the chances are. if the vote is close, that several days will pass before the results are known. Scratched ballots will delay the count and prolong the acony. The Resistor is arranging with some official at each of the voting precincts in the county to send in an early report of how tho tally stands and a final rejiort of the count. In this jway it is hojied to be able to announce the eonniy vo'e early the day aftpr the e !rc -tinn and careful co-operation of all wlio are to make rejjorts is urged. .lust what arrangements the Register will be able to make for displaying tlie election news to the public has noi l)oen decided but some method will be ussed.

Oct. 30.—Deep interest was manifested today throughout the capital In the condition of Vice President Sherman at l.'tlca. The ab.sence of the |>residing officer will give the Senate no new problem to solve In case Mr. Sherman is unable to attend the opening of Congress.

Senator Bacon was chosen to serve as president pro tern until December 16 and the understanding is that the rotation with Senator Gallinger will continue ind"finitely.

They succeeded in. rescuirig all but two of the children before they were trapped by the flames. Another Sister was burned so seriously that she cannot survive. Two Sisters escaped. The origin of the fire is unknown. Eighty-seven orphan children, ranging in age from two to twelve, and • nine nuns were in the building when the flames broke out Marshalling their charges to hurry them to safety, the Sisters of Charity remained in the blazing orphanage until the building; began to crumble and fall. The Mother Superior, Mary of The Cross, returned to the burning dormitory when she heard the cry of an overlooked child. A few moments later she appeared at a window wit,h the babe in her arms. Fire Chief Wright attempted to save her but failed. A ladoer' was placed against the unsteady wall and the chief scaled it, but before he .reached her the Mother Superior with the child, fell back into the f^mes.
