U'ho deeper the canvassing board gets lnt <
the ine s the more complicated does It prov (
itself. Considerable commotion l bcini
cnuscfl nmonp itolltlclans , nnd the room 1.
crowded during the siltlnps ot tin
board by Interested parties. The ex
cic'ltomuit was brought about by what ii
claimed by several attorney * to bo the mrf-
nnency , Irro ulur mul action on the
part of tlio Judges and clerks of thnt clco
tiou.Tim Judges nml clerics of election would
have been under the registration law elected ,
but that law hnvm , ' b on declared void it de
volved upon the county commissioners to np-
point the elect Ion board nnd the appointees
to refuse to serve. Consequently , in a nuni
Vcrof instances , the man appointed by thu
rtymmlssioners refused to serve , and Inespo-
tficnced men tilled their places.
It appears that the l.iw reiiulros that , aftei
Judges und clerks of election are appointed ,
otic nt least of thn Judpcs shall appear bo.
fort- the county clerk , be sworn and qualify ,
which K'vea ' him the power to swear in the
remaining members of the election board. He
JH also furnished with election boxes , tally-
sheets Uud poll books.
The tally-sheet1) have blanks for the
names of candidates , und In the process ol
ronntliiK , nfter election , the number of votes
polled by each candidate is entered by the
clerks of election opposite his name. These
tally-sheets must be signed by the Judges.
The sheets , having been tilled , the
totals arc taken and catered in
the poll-books. From the poll-hooks
the board of canvassers are to decide who
are the candidates elected. The law also
provides that after election and the count ,
the ballots shall bo by the judges sealed , nnd
that the tally sheets and poll books
be sealed and labeled and placed in the elec
tion boxes which must also bo sealed and re
turned to the county cl rk. to bo by him
opened , and ninvnvcd by the hoard of can-
vusscr.s within 11 vo days after the election.
In the Kirst ward the law has not been
compiled with in every pirticular , und , as
stated above , the Becno at the time of can
vassing the returns by the hoard was ono of
tmuaual excitement , amllt is felt that , for
the first time in the annals of Douglas
county , a contested election will bo the ro-
oult The board of canvassers consists of Major
J. 11. ITuray , Major Dennis and County Clerk
Koche. They met Thursday nt a.10 : o'clock
In the court house , as stated In Tnc HIE : , and
Immediately proceeded to canvass the elec
tion returns , calling for the First district of
the First ward. Very few persona were
present nt the time , save Kuclid Martin , who
roprertentcd the Interests of democracy , while
Iavo Mercer watched the board on behalf
of the republican party. As soon as County
Clerk Kocho had extricated the First ward
ballot box from the pile of tin boxes stand
ing in the room , the whole board
eagerly watched the process of opening.
Upon examining the contents of the box it
WHS found that the interior showed n con
tused mass of papers , ballots and poll books.
None of the latter hud been filled , nor had
the ballots been sealed according to law.
Dave Mercer , who had been keeping an at-
tcntlvo watch ou tha proceedings , immed
iately Jumped to his feet and entered a pro
test , saying :
"We object to and protest ngainstthe count
ofjthc First want , and ask .you to throw out
the same for the following reasons :
1. The poll books have been returned with
out the names of the candidates being either
written or printed therein , or the total num
ber of votes cast given.
M , Tlio books are only signed , without nfll-
davit of the Judges or an evidence of their
a ! ! . The ballots were not sealed.
Soon every telephone inthobulldlngwas in
operation requesting the presence before the
liourd of the most eminent lawyers ot both
ii.ii ties. The room was quickly filled with
lawyers , politicians and candidates , among
them being Senator Manderson , T. J. Mahoney -
honey , Will Gurley , Dick Berlin , 11. Estn-
lirook , the boara of county commissioners ,
the ahcriff and others.
Canvasser J. B. Furay moved , after the
excitement had somewhat suusided , that the
board proceed to count the votes , and the
count was proceeded with , developing the
fact that both parties were disappointed
witti the result of the count. At tU6 moment
Dick Berlin was objecting to the count pro
ceeding on account or what ho called illegal
ity , Senator Mandergon entered and pro
ceeded to oxamlue County Clerk Kocho.
"Did you open these boxes in the presence
of the other members of the board I" asked
the senator.
"Yes , sir , " answered Kocho.
"And were the ballots and'poll books uu.
nculed ? "
' They wore , " answered Uocho con
"Very good , " said the senator with a
"What's to he donol" usked one ot the
county commissioners.
"Wo'll soc , " replied the senator.
Great confusion , in which everybody lit
the room expressed an opinion , prevailed for
some time , when Mr. T. J , Mahoaoy scoured
n hearing and said :
' It IIIIH been alleged that lu ono instance ,
in the First ward , the Jurat of a nualill < * d
Judge of election was not attached to the
Judges' cortilieatcs showing theirHialillea-
tiou to act. I now desire to amend thu re
turns. If such omission exists , by producing
one Henderson nnd havltf his sworn state
ment entered heroin , thnt ha duly and ac
cording to law swore the Judges. And I fur
ther desire to present from the records of the
clork's otllco Henderson's ntmllticntlons pre
vious to the election , showing his powers to
act , as the law requires. "
Henderson appeared and asked to be sworn
to Mr. Mahonoy'&statement , and amidst cor.-
Hidorablo confusion thobourd adjourned until
When the board met yesterday morning at 0
o'clock , there was u crowded room , the in
terest displayed Thursday night having mi-
pregnbtcd the whole political community.
The ilrst business before the board was
whikt action should bo taken on the request
of Mr. Mahoney in regard to James Huudor-

Some discussion arose on this point , Mr.

Mr , Furay entered a formal protest , and

The connt of the tlrst district , Serond

that there were no tally shoots in the box

The board proceeded with the count of the
Fourth ward , and in this ward everything

Furay suggested throwing otitthecntlr

The returnsln the First district , Sixth wan

The Second district returns Of tbo sann

In the First district of the Seventh wnr <
there was no tally sheet returned , but tin

In answer to queries us to what effect the
Irregularities In the election returns , as
shown above , would have on the result ol
the election , the following opinions were ob
tained :
Major Furay Well , sir , the board is doing
its host , and contest or no contest , the hoard
cannot bo blamed for any Irregularities that
mav occur in tlio returns ,
Major Dennis The canvassing hoard H
not u board of record , as many imagine it to
be ; consequently all wo have to do is to re
port thu nuuibur of votes cost and instruct
the county clerk to issue certificates of
election. I don't think there will ho any
great objection to the notion of the board.
Should there IKS persons who do object , they
have their re' ' edy in the courts.
George M. O'Urion On u Just count , such
nstho canvassing board is making , I predict
that Rcvoral republican cuididatos for the
legislature will bo dorlurod elected. Wo
don't want the earth , but if we get a portion
of tlio glory thereof wo will be satisfied.
T. J. Mnhone.v , county attorney-elect The
Irregularities of the Judges and clerks In the
election returns might affect the issue
eventually if there we o any indications that
fraudulent practices were resorted to in
order to elect any particular person or party.
I see no such practices. The judcrcs did their
best and that is nil that can bo expected ot
thiiiu. If an appeal to thu legislature is uindo
by the opposite party , it will have to produce
other evidence than that brought to the no
tice of the canvassing board to gain their
ends. After tlio count is made , I have no
fear that any such appeal will bo made.
Henry Estabrook I think there is 11 strong
ca e in favor of the republican candidates
contesting the election before the legislature.
1 have no positive knowledge that there will
ho a contest , but should there be we have a
mighty strong euso in our favor. There we.-o
several hundred of what I call fraudulent
tickets voted. 1 have copies of two kinds
which can ha produced.
Commissioner O'Koeffe E tliink theru
should bo a law requiring the judges and
i-lerlcs of election to bo themselves elected
by tlio people. Or , if not that , the Judges
ipIKJinU'd by the commissioners should bii
uompollod to servo. There is no exouao for
; iny irregularities in the returns , for asynap-
sis of the laws bearing on the action
3C the Judges and clerks of elec
tion Is printed In each poll booir.
W. A. Paxton I don't ' think much about
Lhe canvass. I'm elected sure , and thai sat
isfies me.
M , Anderson If they throw out the votes
m account of irregularities of onlv one dlb-
irict m the city , the Second precinct of tlio
ieventh ward could bo counted and that
, vent democratic. Idpu'tseo that anything'
; un bu gained by kicking against the official

and found tracks loading1 through th

with a half-inch rope , and as soon 111 i

cavated a hole , buried the trap out o

in the previous cases. The head had been
sovoted und placed bcucnth ono of thu arms ,
The cars nnd nose had been cut otT. The
body had been disemboweled nad the ilosti
wns torn from the thighs. The womb and
other organs were missing. The skin had
been torn oft the forehead unit cheeks. One
hnml had been pushed into tlio stomach.
The murdered woman told n companion
ln t evening thut she was without money
mul would commit suicide if she did not ob-
turn si supply. It Inn boon learned thnt a
man , respectably dressed , accosted the vic
tim and offered her money. They went to
her lodgings ou the second lloor of u Dorset
street house. No noise wns heard during
the night , nnd nothing wns Itnown of the
murder until the landlady went to the room
curly this morning to ask for the rent. The
tlrst thing she sjw on entering the room was
the woman's breasts und viscera , lying on n
table. Dorset street is short und nut-row ,

Hniln-ay Speed in
Murray's Aliijirxxino : Recently the
West i-oa-st celebrated bank holiday by
once more , brdalcinp the record. This
time the Northwestern took the lion's
share of the burden. In order to { jot to
Edinburgh in , eight hours the North
western ltailwa.Vi companj' ran to Crowe
( IftSi miloa ) in' 178 minutes without a
stop , the longest run over innclc in the
world ; the two companies between them
covered -100 inik in nineteen miuutca
less than the advertibod time , the fu test -
est long run 'ever made in the
world and the Caledonian crowned
the whole by cunning the 10DJ miles
from Cai lisle to KdinlJurgli , incliidihg
ton consecutive miles of one in eighty ,
in 104 minutes , which was probably tlio
most remarkable performance of the
three. Next day the North \yestern ,
not to be bentQii by the Caledonian , did
its ninety miles from Preston to Car
lisle , including a thirty-mile climb up
the Cumbrian Fells , in exactly ninety
minutes. Two months earlier the sam'o
train was allowed 127 minutes for the
hamo dibtance. Again four days and
there came what is perhaps the most
honorable feature of a contest in which
both sides can boast that they have
maintained their reputation for honest
and gooil-temporcd lighting. The
Northwestern informed their part
ners that they proposed to ao-
eolorato further , but did not
wish to advertise the fact. In
future tnoy intended to reach
I'M in burgh at 5'A5 p. in. The Great
Northern at ouee volunteered to give
up two minutes , and to reach York
punctually for 'lunch at 1 : ! ' > 0. Keeping
the sacred twenty minutes unen-
croached upon , the Northeastern nro
left with 1M5 milcH. nnd 235 minutes.
On the Monday the Northwestern wont
to Crowe in two hours and forty-seven
minutes , allowed ono minute more than
the advertised time for intermediate
utoj-pagc , and were in Edinburgh nt
5:158 : ; actual running time , 400 miles fn-lU7
minutes. Next day the Kast Const train
was in at 6:111 : , having covered the lili
miles from Newcastle in 12 , " minutes ;
running time , 423 minutes for JIOII miles.
Since then both lines have contented
Lhomsolveb with merely keeping time ,
: ind arriving atli and 5:45 : p. m. , respec
tively , and hero it is probable that the
Imtllo will cud. On condition Wioy are
[ illowed to reach Edinburgh llrat , the
Kast Coast companies nro ready to ac-
sept their rivals as their equal y on
paper , but if the battle is renewed next
mir for .September will , ft is under
stood , see the speed dropped ugain to a
loiburoly fifty miles an hour or they will
jlnim to bo credited with the shortest
[ imo to Edinburgh , But if it be ro-
iiowed the contest will hardly bo local-
iVicd as it has boon thin Hummer. At
present the Ea t Coast takes nine hours
ind llfty minuted to Glasgow , but they
: ould be there under nine hours if they
darted again for Glasgow immediately
in tliolr arrivaU'jit Kdinburg at 5:4i : .
That is , thoy. would : be level for the
, irno with ttlo rweft coast for the im-
nonsely valuable Olasgpw tratlie. And
, ho Glasgow people are inc.lined , as it
a , to bo out of tamper with the west
east for the profqronco that has been
rivon to Edinburgh this sulnmor. And
