Anti-prohibitionists scored a victory in the referendum election yesterday when an overwhelming sentiment in favor of repealing the Severson state prohibition enforcement act was registered. Returns from 1,531 of the state's 2,759 precincts rer I resenting every section of the state, showed 205,812 in favor of repealing the enforcement act and 103,092 opposed to repeal. On the other question of removing the home brew penalty the vote was: Yes, 192,-065; No, 104,042. . As returns continued to add to the majority in favor of eliminating the prohibition enforcement act from the statute books through legislative action, wets claimed that the margin of victory would exceed 125,000. This claim was made by State Senator Thomas II. Duncan, so cialist author of the referendum, the result of which he maintained would be regarded as a mandate to the legislature, at its present session, to carry , out the expression of the voters. NO EFFECT ON LAW. Yesterday's vote will have no effect upon the state enforcement laws until the legislature acts; and the vote is not binding upon the . lawmakers. The purpose of the referendum" was to obtain the sentiment of voters. There appeared no doubt, however, but that the legislature would shape its action by the result of the voting. f f.

AURORA, 111., April 3. (A.P.) Indictment of a deputy sheriff for manslaughter and possible perjury action against a county dry agent will be sought at a special grand Jury session next week, as a result of recommendations by a coroner's jury investigating the fatal shooting of Mrs. Lillian Deking. The jury, composed of - six Aurora business men foiind that the slaying of Mrs. Deking during a county dry raid at her home March 25, was "unnecessary." It recommended that the grand jury "Inquire into all conditions surrounding the raid that led to the shooting." The verdict held that Deputy Sheriff Roy Smith, who fired the shot that' killed Mrs. Deking, be held on a charge of manslaughter. "We believe from the evidence," the verdict continued, "that the warrant upon which the raid was based was the result of a false affidavit by Eugene Boyd Falr-. child, an attache of the state's attorney's office. Smith, the deputy, gave his testimony from a hospital bed at Elgin. He was shot in the leg dining the raid by the Deklngs' son, Uerald. He said the shooting was accidental; that he tripped and unintentionally discharged . a shotgun as Mrs. Deking advanced ns though to shoot him. BOY CLEARS CASE.- The testimony of 12-year-old Gerald Deking contradicted the deputy's account in some particu lars. The boy said his mother had) not risen from the table at which j she .sat telephoning when the j deputy fired. His father, Joseph , Deking, was unable to testify con- cernlng the shooting, having been j knocked unconscious by the dep- nlv Q fain a n r frt A a F 1 For another reason, Lee explained to the court, ' he advanced her $900 in $100 installments to pay for a trousseau that never graced his march to the altar. And for still a third reason, he explained, he discovered too late that exactly 699 other men had read the ad and were in the field as rivals. So yesterday he led a raid on her flat and had both Mrs. Helen Goodrich and her husband arrested on a disorderly conduct charge. Judge McCarthy continued the case until next Monday to decide what, if anything, to do about it. 'SIC BILL' HS TEST T Forces of Chicago Mayor Capture 9 Out of 11 Aldermen and Retains Council Control.

Milwaukee county vindicated he claim of the wets that it was their stronghold by favoring repeal by a five to one vote which far offset the majority in support of the prohibition law rolled up In dry rural territory. The margin was so large for repeal in Milwaukee and other large cities of the state that the later returns expected from dry territory was not expected to cut into the wet majority appreciably.

Officers raided the home of John Heffelfinger, a justice of the peace at Churubusco, near here, today and found, they reported, a gallon of alleged hard liquor. Heffelfinger was alleged to have been dispensing both the law and the liquor from his home. The authorities charged that Heffelfinger had used his office to cover up alleged bootlegging activities.

The shooting was termed unnecessary and the warrant on which the raid was made was called illegal by the coroner's jury which asked the grand jury to inquire into the warrant also. Gerald, t-lim, fair haired and dressed in knickers, was the prin cipal witness at the inquest. He told how he had shot and wounded Smith after watching the deputy club his father into Insensibility and shoot and fatally wound his mother.

Stafford, he said, told the raiders that he was not the proprietor. "Then," said Gerald, "one of them went to the I basement and came back up as big as you please with some wine daddy had there." The boy said he awoke his father who told the raiders to get out or show . a search warrant which Tie said they failed to do.

Leslie today was the possessor of the football which was to have been used in the game between Purdue and In diana universities In 1903 when a railroad wreck almost wiped out the Boilermaker team as it was journeying toward Indianapolis. The governor was a member of the Purdue team and was critically injured in the accident. The football was presented to the governor here last night at the annual goodwill dinner of the Glenn Owens post of the American Legion. The presentation was made by 10-year-old Bobbie Coak-ley, whose grandfather, Charles Specht, of Indianapolis, recovered the ball from the wrecked Purdue university football train, 26 years ago. Bobbie wore the headgear of a football player. "My granddaddy found the football at the wreck", the youngster told the chief executive", and gave it to me years ago. It Is yours and I want to give it to you". The governor addressed the gathering and launched a forceful attack on un-American propaganda and radical activities in his speech. "The American Legion with Its motto 'for God and country' will be the greatest force in defeating the attempts of these agitators to strike at the foundations of our constitution". Governor Leslie said. Fred A. Viecking, state legion commander, also spoke.
