for William M. Blonn anil .Ioiih II.
Ke4hle.tr, Itcpulillcan nnil Democratic
cnnilldntcB, respectively, for county mnr
slinl. At 9 o'clock tliM mornlni? lie will
begin recounting In the coniest of Oacnr
Dahl for tho olllco of clerk of the crlml
Jinl court, now held by John lit Thomp
son. As previously rt.-itnl, the recount In
the Sloan-Keshlcar contest eliovvs, plnln
ly th.it the billot boxes were opened and
their contents tampered with after they
were taken lo the olllco of the recorder
of voters. In all the gang precincts,
where tho JtldRen nnd clork pennltled
fraudulent votlnR nnd had tho Ilcpuhll
can challenRers thrown out of the booths
nnd ccrtlltcd to false nnd fraudulent re
turns, Keshlear cnlned nnd Sloan lost.
No one believes that nny of tho RanK
Judges mid clerks failed to Klvo him
every voto to which ho was entitled,
l)Ut tho recount makes It Appear that
they failed to rIvo him credit for votes
in a number of the precincts, and count
ed ballots for Sloan that weio cist for
him. It Is duo to tho crooked work done
In the olllco of tho lecorder ot voters
th.it tho recount makes It appear that
the men who nrc under indictment for
frauds nt tho polls In several precincts
discriminated against Kesltle.tr in t.ivur
of Sloan. , , ,
It Is claimed by Keshle.ir and his
friends thnt he mado n net snln ot 3)0
otes ilurluir the recount, but this Is de
nted by Sloan anil his friends. The le
turns of the vote In tho city Rave Sloan
50,413 nnd Keslilcnr 10,01::. Tha Knnp s
forgers took twenty votes from Sloan s
vole and added that number In Keh
lear's ote when they ch.tiiRoil the tabu
lated returns and the JudRos' ccrtlllc.ites
In the olllco of tho i (.colder of voters.
Subsequently they took the ballots from
n number of the ballot boxes and by
scratching the name of Sloan on soma
ot tho ballots where tho voters had
voted tho llcpuhlican ticket anil by sub
stituting new ballots increased tho otes
ot Keshlear and other gang candidates,
Jn consequence ot the crooked work
done by tho forgets and the oilier sing
fixers the recount Rives Sloan 10.33S and
Keshlear 10,103, n net loB to Sloan of
73 nnd a net Rain to Keshlear ot 01
votes. Thu votes cast for county mar
shal In tho precincts outside ot Kansas
City hae not et been lccounteu by
County Clerk Crittenden. Tho vote
there, as announced at the time of the
ofllcial cann-.s, Rave Keshle.ir S7t ma
jority over Sloan. In the city, according
to the recount, Sloan has a majotlty of
2J1 over Keshlear. If Keshlear does not
lose any votes during the recount In the
country ho will be ahead ot Sloan 141
votes. , , ,
It is the intention of Sloan and his at
torneys to submit proof of the crooked
vork done by tho sang both at the polls
nnd in tho otllco of tho recorder of
voters, and they will nsk that several
hundred fraudulent votei be throw n out.
Atlldavlts have been obtained from many
citizens whose ballots have been tam
pered with in the interest of Kesh
lear, that they did not vote for Kesh
lear. AN ERROR CORRECTED.

CONCERT AND ENTERTAINMENT.

"A bouquet of music" was the way
Vicar General J. J, (Uennon expressed
It In his nfter remarks last night in
Cathedral hall in referring to tho con
cert nnd literary entertainment given by
the pupils of St. Tcies.t'.s nc.ulemy. The
hall was well tilled and tho audience
was an appreciative one. Tho singing
nnd playing of the joung ladles was
such ns to move tho strongest tribute
to the excellence of their teachers. The
numbers on the programme were nearly
all such as to call forth whole clashes
nt once and the effect of so many pretty
faces and elaborate costumes was to
heighten the pleasure of the listeners.
Tho academy orchestra opened tho pro
gramme with Hela's overture "Lust
spiel," and Mis K. Iteddlng lcclted
"The Sicilian's Tale," nfter which tho
violin class plaM'd Ualley's "Ulumcn
Streuen Waltzes." The cfTect of tho
class work ot the violinists was charm
ing. Miss J. Sweeney net ieclted n
humorous selection, nfter which the
class in physical cultuic, composed of
young misses, all dressed In pietty cos
tumes, passed through their drill made
up of many graceful motions timed to
the cadence ot the orchestra composed
of ladies. Itobyn's "Answei" vvns net
sung by Miss Ling, accompanied upon
the piano by Miss Munioe, after which
the mandolin class played a selection,
nccompanied by Miss II. linker. A trla
Iogue from Maik Twain's "Innocents
Abroad," pleased the audience very
much, nfter which the stilng quartette
played Mascngnl's "Cavnletia Itustl
cana," with piano, haip nnd organ ac
companiments. Miss Lvd.v Keevil ie
clted, and the nudlence then listened to
n pretty violin, haip and piano trio by
Misses M. Hall, A. Hackett and 11.
Linker. A Dels.it tenn pantomime by
members of the ouiiRer classes all In
pretty costumes came next. It was en
titled "Night and Morning," nnd the ef
fect, with pietty chorus singing, was
charming. Tho closing number was a
pretty musical chaiade or character
sketch of nn excursion train loaded with
happy plcnlckeis going und returning. It
closed with stialns fiom "Homo Sweet
Home." At tho end ot the piogiamme
Vicar General rather niennon. who was
nn Interested listener in tho audience,
loso nnd by request tendeied thanks to
the teacheis nnd pupils ot tho academy
tor the delightful entertainment, lie
complimented them for their progress
in culturo nnd education.

"I write to tell whit Hood's B-rstpn-rills,

gathered under my chin on tha left elilo
and continued to pow until it wis ns

and hid to keep a poultlco on It all tho
thnt. I hid tried many remedies, but my
troubta lingorcd and I had about given

Hood's Barsaparllla. I concluded to try
It, and altar taking almost seven bottles
I am again enjoying t lie best ot health,

" I cannot begin to tell how thankful I
am for thohoalth Hood's Barsaparllla has

not feel safe to bo without it ; It tflvus me
