"A member of the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners has threatened vote stealers with a spot check of ballot application signatures in the board offices after the Nov. 7 elections.  The unprecedented plan to thwart the historic vote fraud in Chicago was disclosed by Francis P. Canary, one of the two Democratic members, in an interview with the Tribune. . ."
