ILLEGAL VOTING IS CHARGED.
Warrant Issued for John J. Murphy for Trying to Cast Ballot.
John J. Murphy was registered in the First ward. John J. Murphy voted -- or tried to -- but the charge was made by police officers before the prosecutor yesterday that John J. Murphy who was arrested was not the John J. Murphy who was entitled to a vote. So Shannon C. Douglas, Jr., issued a warrant yesterday charging the Murphy who tried to vote with attempting to vote illegally. He will be given a hearing before Justice Casimir Welch.
Charles Groves, a negro, was before the prosecutor yesterday and a warrant asked charging him with trying to buy votes at Tenth streets and Euclid avenue Tuesday. It was said he received thirty-eight $1 bills from a negro attorney. Warrant Deputy J. L. Kilroy refused to file charges because of lack of evidence. Groves was taken to police headquarters for further investigation.
