TWO TWELFTH WARD CONTESTS.
Riht ot James J. Mauley and Mor
gan Sweeney to Sit in City
Contests were begun yesterday
sg iiusl James J. Mauley, select couu
I'ilman, and Morgan Sweeney, com
mon councilman, of the Twelfth ward,
who were returned as the successful
candidates fur these offices at the last
John Keurney contests Mr Manley
and Henry W. Coyle, Mr. Sweeney.
The grounds on which they institute
the contests are exactly the same.
They allege that many peraons who
are not citizens, were not registered,
had not paid their state or county tax
within the prescribed time, were not
ot legal age or were not residents of
the ward cast votes for Mr. Mauley
aud Mr. Sweeney, while persona who
wauted to vote for Mr. Kearney and
Mr. iCoyle, but were not registered,
were prevented. from preparing affi
davits that would entitle tbem to do
ao. For these illegal reasons the peti
tions say they were defeated.
Mr. Mauley's majority, according to
the face of the returns, was 31, ami
that of Mr. Sweeney 0. Their peti
tions were ordered filed and the court
fixed April 7 for a bearing.
The outcome of the contest wlil be
watched with great interest and much
teatimony of a decidedly aensational
character is promieed by the contest
ants, who are represented by Attorneys
