weiu candidates for alderman of the
Vow tcenth ward. The open returns
Miowed that Kellow received L'08 votes
and Cawley 209. When the work of
counting the votes was taken up V""
torday before Judge J, l, Kellly, a re
itiest was mado on behalf of Mr. Kel
low, who was lepresentcd by Attorney
T. P. Duffy, who said they hod Infor
mation to the effect that a vote marked
for Kellow In tha Second district was
not counted at all.
Later In the day the matter was
called to the attention of the three
Judges by Sir. Duffy, who presented
the affidavit of Alderman Kellow,
which set forth that he had been In
formed and believed that a vote marked
for him had not been counted. H was
marked In this way: There was n cross
In the circle at the head of the Repub
lican column and the voter then went
over to the Democratic column and
placed marks opposite the name of
each of the candidates for district
Attorney C. C. Donovan appeared for
Cawlej" and said he did not think the
facts set forth suniclent to warrant the
court In having the ballot box brought
Into court. Mr. Duffy said their infor
mation came fiom a Mr. Godshall, a
watcher In that dlsttlct. who saw the
ballot In question. He was out of the
city yesterday and his affidavit could
not be obtulned. Judge Archbnld re
quested Mr. Duffy to secure this afll
davit and brine It In this inornlnu.
The court will then pa"s upon the
matter. When the counters reached
the Fourteenth ward yesterday they
passed It, pending the settlement of
the dispute. If the vote Is 'allowed It
will make the candidates a tie, and
another election will have to bt- held.
The votes cast In this city and Car
bondale are being counted In court
room No. 2, Judge Kelly presiding, who
Is assisted by the following:
Reading Clerks T. A. Bock, Thomas
Recording Clerks Palmer Williams,
M. J. Walsh.
File Clerks W. L. Hill, John M. Cor
bett. The votes cast in the botoughs and
townships of the county arc being
counted and tabulated by Clerk of the
Courts Dunlels nnd his assistants.
TO BE BROUGHT IN.
There are no returns from the Flist
district of the Twelfth ward, for tho
reason that the election officers dis
agreed Tuesday night nmi refused to
make the count. Judge Kelly lost
evening; Usued an order directing the
sheriff to bring the members or the
board Into court this mornhiK to ex
plain their conduct.
When court adjourned last evening"
the First district of the Seventeenth
ward was being tabulated. The work
of counting will proceed today, not
withstanding that it is a legal holiday.
The count yesteiday showed that M.
J. Clark, Democrat, has a lead of six
votes over John McDonald, Democrat,
In the First ward.
