F1TZGERABD CASE AGAIN.
?? The Manchester School Board will hold
a vcrv interesting meeting next Thurs?
day night, taking up the. Fitzgerald
Former Clerk- Fitzgerald defrauded tlio
: board out of neariy $3,400 by- either rais
i ing the figures ou warrants signed by the
iformer president, or by forging thoprcs
1 ident'3; name to warrants, Oi-er sixly
?bogus warrants. were. cashedby the clcnc..
Some weeks ago the board secured. the
services of Mt. Patteson, an attorney of
Richmond; for- advice, about. rccoverhig
a- part, if not- the. whole. of the money
j stolen. A special committee was ap
' poinfced to receivo^ this. advice, and they
rnado a report to the board at its last
meeting. Since this; report was made. the,
; committee have boen at work diligently.
j At the meeting Thursday night the re
sult. of these rnoetings will be. made
' public. and what- success the committee
has mot with in the attempt- to recover
a par.t of- the money. Several of tho
members have signified their intentions
to let the whole- matter bo known to; tho
public without reserve. The City Councli
are after the board, and at the last
I meeting Mr. Bradiey expressed himself
as being in favor of- going before. the
body and ask for an explanation of-the
idoings of the board.
Another- matter of much intercst the
! board will wrestle with at their next
meeting is the, term of some of its mem?
bers expiring by reason of being resi
dents of different wards from those they
were eleeted from. This change is a re
su.lt of the redistricting of the city u"der
the new charter.
Judge Clopton, City Attorney, has. de
cided that the school districts do not
nccessarily have to bo the saine as the
boundaries of the wards, there being
four wards and four school districls, be
tkinks according to. law on tho subject
the school districts can reinain the same.
Mr. W: B. Bradiey, 'member of the
Council from the Fourth!, and Mr.. J.- T.
'AJbbott, member from the Third, tbink
Ju<ige Clopton incorrcct in his decision,
aud will flght tlie matter.
At the meeting Thursday night the
election of officers comes up, and Mr.
Bradiey, -now being the president, will
sland for re-election. Mr. Bradiey was
eleeted to the board from the Fourth
W'ard, but is; now a resident of the,: Sec?
ond. If the districts are to conform to
the boundaries of the wards, he will be
be out the board.

this.poi'ni hadT tended to show that there
had been any spurious ballots rised. or
that the returns had-beeh-tampered-with
after they left the prccjnct. .. .
It was discovered ih gbjng over the balr
lots that a. number of votersat this pre?
cinct, which is the ""silk stocking" ~one
of the ward, had scratched both Messrs.
Tayior and McCarthy and had voted for
nb one for thc office of,Mayor.
The- recount committee made the fol
lowing report: '
For Maypr: McCarthy, M.U-Taylpr,.223;
ballots not voted for Mayor, 29; total,
For Sheriff: Epps, 22S;' Hughes, -Bo;
tickets not voted for sheriff, 10; tolai,
413. ', v ..'"*".
The count by election officers was as
For'Mayor: McCarthy, 162; Taylor, 223.
For Sheriff: Epps, 225; Hughes, 17S.
The discrepancies were but slight and
the total vote footed up the_ sa.me. This
disposed .of the baHots, and Mr., Hepry
Bee Valentine, who had witnessed the
recount of the ballots by the Ci$y C!pm
roittee on Tuesday night, \sas sworn He
testified that the box was sealed when it
was taken from the trunk and the seal
was brbken in his presenee. He had tal?
lied for Mr. Epps, being a ffiend of that
gentleman. He produced the book in
which he had kept the tally, The trend
of Mr. Valentine^ testim.ony was along
the" line that as a friend of Mr. Epps the
recount and the condition pf the ballots
had- been satisfactory 'to him.
" THE REGISTRAR'S STATEMENT.
Mr, R. B. Snead, repistrar, and pne of
tlieo'udges in the precinct, was next in
tiodueed and sworn. He had been-sur
prised at tne error. He said" everything
had been. regular all day and night, .so
far as he knew. Seven hundred ballots
had been given them for ,tho precinct,
.414 of which were yoted. The others were
returned. "Twenty .pf these were muti
lated arid 266 were good. All the officers
were duly sworn. -The others- were
Messrs. McKenney and Jacobs, and' Mr.
Tyler came in' as the additibnal clerk
at 7 o'clock P. M. There had been no
drinking in the polling place but once.
Then all took a drink.-'O.ne of tho officers
stepped out several times during the day,
but "none of them were under the influenee
of lig.uor. There were no witnesses when
the'baliot box was opened at" night, to
1 tlie best of his knowledge. and belief.
The ballots tallied exactly when taken
oiit of the- box. Mr. Jacobs took a part
of'the ballots, and he (Mr. Snead) the
rest. Mr. McKenney cheeke.d for Mr.
Snead and Mr. Tyler for Mr. Jaeobs.
Messrs. Gunst and Puller came in, but he
"ceuld not say they came together. -Mr.
Puller rel?syed the. witness when the Iat
ter was taken sick. He had stoad by
while Mr. Puller tallied. He was not,
however. close enough to see that Mr.
Puller was tallying correctly. He did not
swear Mr. Puller, because he thought, as
superintendent of the ward, he had a
rjght to tally. 'Mr. Gunst relieved Mr.
Puller for a while. Mr. Cullen came in
about 9 o'clock. Altogether, he did not
think the outsiders tallied moFe than
MR. CULLEN FOOTED UP.
Witness had neither sojicited votes- on
day of election, or bet 011 the reswit.
He thought Mr. Cullen had footed up the
results on one. of the tally sheets.- Hc
beliieved the taliy shecits sjiown him
were the ones used iu. his .precinct. In
decd, he was pretty certain of it. Mr.
Cullen. he understood', had been invited
by Superinteiident Puller to witness tlie
count. He had taken the place of Mr.
Tyler and had tallied for about an hour.
Mr. Cailen was not sworn, and no one
had witnessed fAiS tally. \Mr.. Cullen
had made up the certiflcatc of return
at the request .of the judges.. Mr. Cul?
len ' may have taken the totals, but he
did not" and could not have kept a sepa
rate tally sheet: There had been no
errors discovered which eausetf tho of?
ficers to go back- and tally again. Wit?
ness had voted for Mr. Smith for ser
geant. "He thought thc error had occur?
red in the precinct -in tallying rather
than elsewhere. . ' ???-.._
He was sure of this, when qucstioned
again. 'The lights had been' poor. He
thought thc crror had been purcly a
cle.rical one, made in tallying and with
out'any bad intcntion ou thc part of
anyone. It was usual to havc outsiders
to "witness the count, but it was the
first time "they had assisted in the work
without being sworn. He had allowed it
because hc thought Mr. Puller, ward su
perintendent. had authority. Neither Mr.
Cullen nor Mr. Puller had touehed the
RECOUNT- WAS CORRECT.
Mr. W A. Creekmore, who witnessed
the recount for Mr. Smith, was next
sworn. His testimony was along the line
that "the ballots and seal were all right
when opened, and that thej recount was
correct. A second recount liad been askr
ed by Mr. Wendenburg and. granted,
and had turned out" exactly in accordance
with the first. He was thoroughly sat
isfied with the recount.
MARX TELLS HIS NAME.
Mr. Marx Gunst was the next witness.
Thc "first question asked by Caht. Hall
was "What is your name?" "Marx
Gunst, was the reply, and then the
councilman proeeeded to glve his testi?
mony. When he reached the precinct
witfc 'Mr. Puller. Messrs. McKenney, Jac-'
obs. Snead, and Tyler and Fo?iceman
Clarkson were in the precinct.
The count was going on, but no one
was witnessing. He had gone home for
about twenty-five minutes,. and he now
prcceeded by the aid of a diagram of his
own drawing, to show tho positions of
those in the room, when he returned.
There was no witness to Mr. Puller's tal?
lying nnless it might have been Police
man Clarkson. No one was witnessing
Mr. Kenney's calling of votes. He found
Mr. Puller werking for Mr. Snead,who was
sick. Witness had returned with drinks
fci the five who were there.
RELIEVED MR. PULLER.
He relieved Mr. Puller tifteen or twenty
minutes. .Witness had hesltated, but Mr.
Puller insisted and. he went on with the
work of tallying. He had been in the
votitur nlace only twenty minutes in ali.
Hc could not designate his work on the
tally-sheet. and did not recall the color
of his rjencil. When he had returned with
the ^uleps (which he went for on account
of Mn Snead's sickness) he found Mr.
Cullen. but he did not take a drink.
He had never read the plans. and did
not know he was violating any ruje of
the primary, by' aeting as tallier, tin_
sworri. He was called upon by Superirir
(endent Puller and thought it was prpper.
The lights in the room were only fair.
H. heard no complaint of lack of fire or
iightv He had no* interest; in the fight
for sergeant. Mr. McKenney had called
while witness had tallied. Mr. McKenney
had called very slowly and he thought he
tallied only ten or fifteen ballots. He
thought the officers were pretty welL
fagged'out, but he thought they were all
sober. The committee took a reeess when
Mr. Gunst conduded at 8:30 until 9 o'clock
and the members filed jnto the Iiotel for
supper. "? ? ,
. BUSINESS RESUMED.
The" committee was reconvened by
Chairman Hall at 9 o'clock, and Mr. Fair
fax C. Christian. was,sworn and intro
diiced. He was summoned by Mr. Puller.
The Jatter had reqpested the'witness to

RYAN, SMITH & TALMAN,
609 J&. Broad Sfpcet,
Bet. 6th and 7th Sts.
the ward, was brought in. He wanted
IS C. F. Carr to testify first, and he was
a lowed to do so. Mr. Carr tSftSgMJg
Mr Puller had asked him to witness tne
count "as well as Mr C?^ am
berlayne. and both had declined m order
to ko to the Bijou.
Mr. Sol. B. Jacobs was the next wit?
ness. He was one of the Judges, andhis
testimony was listened ^???Sg>fg
His evidence c.orroborated that ot Air.
Snead up to the time the voting ^
over. and he was closely ?am.ned b>
Captain Hall when the point of &%&&
was reached. There had been no flre and
he had suffered much with cold For this
reason some liquor had been sent in twjce,
but it was not enough to, affect. a_ny one..
ONLY THE .OFFICERS.
Only the four 'officers .were present
when the counting was begun. TUere
were no witnesses. He thought Mr. Ciil-.
len was probably the first to come in.
Messrs. Puller and Ernest were there foi
a while. Policeman Clarkson was also
there. Mr. Cullen had relleved witness
in tallving at the request of Mr. Puller.
This was usual at elections at this pre?
cinct. Outsiders always helped to a
greater or less extent. Messrs. Puller
and Gunst had also tallied for a wnije,
on account of Mr. Snead being siek. He
could not identify the tally sheets hand?
ed him by Captain Hall. He thought
Messrs. Snead and McKenney had done
fcoting up of figures. The lights had
boen verv bad. but they could see the
names on the ballots all right. He drtd
not know how long Mr. Puller had ta -
lied Two sets of ballots were being tal?
lied' at one time, but again the witness
?;iid there were no witnesses. Mr. Cullen
wrote the certiticate of rcturns by re?
quest. He was surprised at the errors
reported. He would never have signed
tho certificate had .ie not thought the
figures were all right. He could not ac?
count for the errors. Mr. Jacobs, like
Mr Snead, was asked to call a. few bal?
lots to demonstrate his speed. He was
timed, and proved a rapid ealler. rne
point was made that jf Mr. Jacobs called
this fast, the tally could not have been
accurately kept. In answer to a ques?
tion by Mr. Saunders, witness said he
thought errors were more Iikely t^J^?
been made by the officers ln his P?e?nct
than by the City Committee in the mat?
ter of counting, for -ne reason that the
former were worn out and had bad lights.
and the latter young and fresh.
Witness said he was seventy-four years ;
of age, and Mr. Snead was sevent>-slx^ ,
He was sure nothing wrong had been
done In the precinct, but elencal errors
might have been made. Adverse eondi
tlons of light. heat and long hpurs he
thought. were calculated to resyjt 111
elerical errors. He did not know it was
a violation of the primary rules for out?
siders to tallv. He thought it Iikely that
theerror had occurred in the precinct
but he did not know this, or it would have
been corrected. __ 'wvitt*
MR PULLER EXAMLSED.
Mr Puller now took the stand and was
q^stioned by Captain Hall. He stated
that he was superintendent of Monroe
Ward. He had been all over the ward
on election day. He had W&.fiFJggk
fort to get witnesses to go to second
precinct. He had asked four or nve gen
tlemen and all had declmed, save Mr.
Cullen, who was in for a while. Mr Pull?
er spoke with great dehberation and was
evidently measuring every word he ut
tered: He had gone to second precinct
with Marx Gunst. They reached there
about Y.45 and both went in. Mr, Gunst
went home for a llttle while, and witness
agreed to wait for him. Mr. Sru-ad was
meanwhile taken sick. Witness took Mr.
Snead's place. He did not reeall whether
he had volunteered his services or wheth?
er he had been requested by Mr. Snead.
He thought he tallied about fifteen min
utes Mr Gunst came back shortly and
asked-witness what he waa dpng work
ing He had explained that he was re^
lieving Mr. Snead, who was siek. Mr,
Gunst went out and got soroe 4ulePs Q&#
all took one. save Fplteernan Clarkson
and Mr. Cullen.
ASKED MR. GUNST.
"Witness said he then asked Mr. Gunst
to take his plaee, aa he desired to shave
before going to Old Market Hall. Upon
his return, he and Mr, Gunst left for Old
Market Hall. "While witness was tally?
ing, Policeman Clarkson was standing
over him, and "Mr, Snead was sitting
close by. He had peen Superintendent
for four years- He had not in this time
asked any election officer to vote or work
for any candidate. On the prlmary-day
-he did not solieit votea for any one. He
had alwayS" experienced dltticulty in get
tin* witnesses for the couFt at elections
He thought ,as superintendent at the
Ward, he thought he had a, right' in the
nrecinct. He was overwhetmed with sur
prise when he heard of the errors. He
f ould only account for them on the ground
of the advanced age of several of tho
officers. -They had suffered and com
plained of cold and they had had P?or
lishts. The latter had been very bad.
He eaunted all the ballots caljed out, ti's
they wera called. He woqld consider a
man who would rob another of a ballot,
as worso than a murderer.
FAVORED MR. EPPS.
Mr. Puller said he was in favor of Mr.
Epps for Sergeant, and in answer to a
question by Capt. Hall, witness stated
that he had done all he eould for Mr.
Epps, but when the polls opened on. eiec
tlon day, he ws no man's friend. Mr.
Epps' friends had criticised him for this.
He had wagered $ia> to $?"> that Mr. J. C.
Smith would win. Capt. Hall asKed wit?
ness why, if he knew the Judges In this
precinct to be incapacitated by age, he had
n->-, as superintendent, tried to have them
superceded by younger men. Mr. Puller
said it was because the former had be
come.fixtures, and the authorities woulct
be slow t,o turn them out. Mr. Puller
desired to know if he was being investi
gated. Messrs Hughes and Carrington
took the same ground. and Capt. Hall
c-cntinued his questions, whicji^\2,.i^i!efl
wcire relevant. - *-"-- ?
The question by Captain Hall as to
whether Mr. Puller thought the EleetOTal
Board would have listened to him in
tlie matter. was objected to by Messra.
Hughes and Carrington, but Mr. Puller
pnswered that he did not think his reeom
mendation v/ouid have been regarded:
Witness said he had taiked ooly rlf
teen minutes. He was handed the tally
sheets and asked to designate his tatlt.s,
which. he could not do.
Mr. Puller admitted that teehnically
the pri.nary plan had beep violated in
his precinct in the matter pl tallying.
Witness and Captain Hall liad" a eol
loquy as to whether the plan hgul been
complied with and Messrs. Broekenbroiigh
and Hughes were on their feet to say
that Mr. Puller was being investigated
rather than the conduct of the elec
LOOKED LIKE TROUBLE.
Here Mr. Puller rose and said he was
being attacked. There was much exrite
ment and confusion and many members
were on their feet.
Captain Hall appeared cool and read
from the plan tb sustain his position.
The question was withdrawn, after some
warra words between Messrs. Hall and
Carrington. The question asked was If
Mr. Puller had told the judges that the
caliing at two tables without anyono
witnessing the tally was ln violation. of
the primary plan. The question and an?
swer were ori motion of Mr. Hughes ex
punged and the examination proceerted.
Mr. Welsh asked witness as to the
lights. and hjs reply was that they were
KKROR IN THE PRECINCT.
Witness thought the error had occurred
in the precinct instead of elirtr.vhere.
though he had been greatly surprised at
:t. There being no check on the tally.
if errors were committed, it would have
been hard to detect them. Ho had taken
no part for any one on electfon day. save
for Mr. Camp, for the Council. Counsel
for one of the candidates for Sergeant had
asked him Jf he could not testify that
thc- officers at the precinct in. question
were careful, painstajiing and methodical
ln their work. and he had dcdlned to do
so This completed Mr. Puller's testi?
mony, and he was excuserf
Mr. Manntng was next sworn. He waa
Introduced to show that it was usual to
have outsiders to help tally. Witness
said up to the last primary it had been
frequently done. It was not usual to
swear them. At his precinct there had
usually been donble checks. He said
any o.ne would roake errors? unless they
were properly checked.
At'U:J5 P. M-. Mr. Manning having con?
duded his testimony, the comuilttee rose.
and will sit again at 8 o'clock to-morrow
night wh?n the investigaUon wtll prob
ably be conduded. It is evident that ait
suspiqion of unfajrness or fraud. If any
exists will be allayed by the mvestiga
