Two precincts of the Eighth ward wero

The recount proceeded through the Ninth
ward and two precincts of the Seventh
ward, without disclosing any further eras
ures or other signs of tampering with the
ballots and without making any change in
the face of the poll books as canvassed.
The work of recounting will be continued
today, but it is not thought likely any
further changes will be discovered, as the

accept the poll book relurus In the
precincts where tampering was manifest.
Nevertheless, through his lawyer, T. J.
Mahoney, he Insisted upon a recount of
all the republican ballots cast on the office
all over the city. Mayor Ziiuman, us
chairman of the canvassing board, held
no leason existed why the board should
proceed merely to determine the facts re
garding the changed ballots. Inasmuch as
the candidates asked merely for a recount
on the ground of error. He said he was
willing to Investigate' for fraud, but first
wanted the returns as canvassed approved

recount showed only seventy-eight votes
for mayor and eighty-two fr clerk. Ap

Looking- for (rooked Work,
"I wanted to see if any crooked work had
been done," said Stockham. "Certain per
sons posted rewards of IIOO for discovery
of frauds. I heard rumors of ballot fixing
and wanted to find out if they were true.
These reports related to precinct In tho
First and Second wards and I am satisfied
to drop It now."
"We have enough evidence now to open
the door of the penitentiary to one or
any number of fellows," said Burbank.
Mayor Zltuman and Attorney Mahoney
wrangled over the propriety of dropping
the contest. Elbourn, who had abstained
from acting as a member of the board on
the recount In which he was Interested, at
the direction of his lawyer, reassumed his
authority and proceeded to act as such.
Mayor Zimman was unwilling to go on
with the count, but Mahoney ordered El
bourn to open the ballot boxes and go
ahead. Treasurer Fink simplified matt
by suggesting a recess to get the legal
department's opinion and an akward situa.
tinn was solved, for Ziniman had taken
possession of the keys of the boxes of the
Third precinct of the Fifth ward, the next
one to be Investigated.
Roses Looked In Vault.
According to the riry elerk anil S. K.
Greenleaf. one of the clerks of the office,
and both candidates for the nomination at
the primaries, the ballot boxes after being
received Tuesday night and the following
morning remained In the office until
Wednesday evening. v Elbourn had gone
home to sleep, leaving no directions about
the boxes. Oreenleaf says he carried them
Into the vault In the main office and locked
them there. They remained there Wednes
day and Friday nights, but Thursday night
they remained unguarded In the outer office.
The bo ird of c;.nvnssers wag at work Thurs
day and Friday and the boxes were' In con
stant use during the day to get at the poll
books which were locked Inside. Saturday
morn I hi?, under Greenleaf's supervision, the
boxes were removed to the vault In the
basement and the combination look turned
Blbourn says Oreenleaf did not have the
combination to unlock this vault and that
only he and Sam Simonson. former chief
deputy In his office, possessed It.
Oreenleaf says he did not know the com
bination. There is no record of the boxes
having been disturbed up to Tuesday morn
ing, when they were brought up for the
recount. The night watchman says he Is
unable to throw any light on the subject
and noticed nothing wrong. The figures
on the clerk and mayor were totaled and
made semi-official Friday and published
In the papers that night.
City Attorney Kreen rendered an opinion
that the board was required to proceed
with the recount of the ballots on clerk
unless all affidavits demanding It were
withdrawn. At ? o'clock the recount of
the votes was taken up again, starting
with the Third precinct of the Fifth ward.

In the ballots from the first district of

board decided to take away six votes from
Elbourn and leave Greenleaf's original

that fraud had been committed in tills pre

speakers expressed themselves as "for the

the committee as between the Fontanelles
and the other crowd come to the test.
Forty-seven out of tirty-four members of
the committee were present al the roll cull
and two more arrived shortly after. Chair

The committee imssed a resolution offered
by Ben Stone, authorizing the chairman

he should be chairman ex-oftlclo. consisting
