All sorts of rumors are rife on the street about the contested election case in the city council, and all sorts of reports have been published about the matter, many of which had no founda tion whatever. Many people do not understand exactly the conditions of the contest and just why it was brought and some have formed opinions and taken sides on the question without even knowing the facts in the case The grounds on which John O'Keeffe, the republican candidate for mayor, makes the contest are that it came to his knowledge that at the election last Tuesday, many parsons voted who were not entitled to a vote in the city: anotner grounu is tnat certain mutu ateu iiciceta were counted in some wards and were thrown out in others. while a further ground for contest is that the aldermen should bs elected by the wards which they are expected to represent in the city council, and that the aldermen should not be voted on by the city at large. Of course Mr O'Keeffe .thinks he has been elected mayor of the city by the legal voters and for this reason he wants the coun cil, to open the ballot boxes and recount the votes, throw out all illegal votes and then if it is shown that he has been fairly defeated by the legal voters of the city, there will bj no farther contest and Judge Magoffin can tane nis seat without further op position, but if the votes show that he (O'Keeffe) has been elected by the qualified voters, then he wants the office. Ihese are the conditions of the contest and it is as fair for one side as it is for the other, aid the contest will certainly do much to purify the ballot in this city. The questions that were raised in the city council last Friday was as to the authority of the council to go behind the returns of the judges of elcct'on and decide the contest by counting the ballots and throwing out illegal votes and declaring the candidates elected who had the most legal vote3. The question was being argued by Judge Kemp and Mr. Stanton, attorneys em ployed in the case, when Judge Cold- well presented a resolution, which was carried, throwing John O'Keeffe's side of the issue out of the council, and at the tane time leaving him in such shape that he could not go before the district court for a writ of mandamus, as he had no case to present. When this phase of the question was put be fore Mayor Campbell, he promptly vetoed the resolution and has filed his veto in the city clerk's office and it will bo presented tomorrow at the meeting 0 of the council. This veto puts a new complexion on the status of the contest and gives John O'Keeffe a chance be fore the council where the contest properly belongs, according to the city charter so at tomorrow.s meeting of the council the contest will hi on ia full force, but just what the outcome will be remains to be seen. The veto by.the mayor was a 'stun ner' for the "machine democrat j" and they were seen all arouud the streets this morning standing with their heads close together and consulting mysteriously over the outcome of the situation. It was clearly to be seen that they were at sea and were devis ine ways and means to prevent the contest if it lay within their power Judge Magoffin looked serious, bu good natured over the matter: but many of those who were after jobs looked sad, forlorn and frazzled out. Thus the matter stands at presen and will stand tomorrow unless Judge Magoffin goes before the district court for a mandamus to prevent the old council from actin? further in the case. The mayor's veto to Judge Cold well's resolution is as follows: THE VETO El, Paso, April 19, 1S'.7. To the Honorable City Council of the City of El Paso. Gentlemen: The resolution passed by the city council cn the 17th day of April, 1897, in which the city resolved that its powers over election returns were simply ministerial is herebv dis approved and vetoed by me for the fol lowing reasons: r irst. That one or more member? of the council who had voted for said re solution did so mistakenly and without comprehending its full s3oi3 and effect. Second Should a majority of the members of the council be ot the opin ion that the city, in the matters of con tested elections now pending b9fore it, are charged with more than minister ial duties, and they should be mistaken in supposing that their powers and duties in the matter of contested elec tions are quasi-judicial, and thev should decide to go behind the returns and en tertain the contests, the mistake if any can readily be corrected bv some re straining or mandatory writ, issued out of the district court. R. F. Cvmpbell, Mayor. Found Dead. Felipe Dominguez aed about oO.and a man with a tough record, was found dead in his jacal at San Eiizario yes terday. He had been dead for three days or over, and had become very much inhabited. It is supposed he was murdered not for his money, as he had none, but he was a lighter and a bad man generally, so a county offi cial from tnat county says, and some one undoubtedly did the old man up on a grudge. Dominguez was single Burned Up. A car load of cattle, twenty-eight were burned up yest jrday, at Moatoya It is supposed that the car caught lire from the engine as the tioor of the car was not ourceu. ioe calt.e were bound through from Mexico points.

The democratic machine is mightily put out about this delay in keeping its oandidatesout-of office. " The machine organs say the republi cans had 2,000 to spend in the late election, but are afraid to have the ballot boxes opsned to see which can didate received the most illegal votes. No one knows exactly how many il legal votes were cast in the late elec tion. nor who they were cast for. but the democratic machine objects to looking into the boxes and 6eeing which party received the most lllega votes. The republicans, on the other hand, are willing to have a show down The demoaratic ward heelers are the first to jump up and cry out that a con tested election will create a bitter poll tical feeling. El Paso "now has a chance to cleanse its ballots let the election go which way it will and it should do t A contest now might be a means of procuring cleanerelections in the fu ture. T. K. Boren is the learned senator of the twenty-fifth legislature, who was Eent by that body to investigate and re port on the condition of the state re- formatory at Gatesville, Texas. Mr. Boren found the place well stocked with bad boys of all complexions, but from his recommendations one would judge that he was a Baptist as he says the place needs more religion and more water. Mr. Boren recommends that the state appropriate $1,000 for the purpose of building a '"sanatarium for the boys to bathe in. The bovs would find much better facilities for bathing if the state should-build a 'nat- atorium, ' and their sanitary condition would be better. Democratic Leader Bailey's refusal to wea- a dress suit on social occasioos in Washington, has got him tabooed froii all social functions at the capital It is a bad fix for a leader to put him- .-elf in. Mr. Bailey should not think that Washington should come to his way of thinkingon matters of dress, es pecially when he wears a broad brim med hat and a Prince Albert coat, but he should ad pt the customs of the place where he is sent to reside, and it is the custom there to wear full dress uits cn all social occasions. Even Bill Sterrett, of the Dallas Iews, when he went to Washington wore a broad brimmed hat and "Seymour"' coat, but ifter attending the first social function in that attire, he was quick to catch on aud soon had himself ''melted down" into a full dress suit. Now the lead ing Texas congressman should not be downed by Bill Sterrett, a correspond ent. I he next thing of great importance to El Paso, is the firemen's state con vention, which meets in this citv on May 12, 13 and 14. This city should keep tip its reputation for entertaining state visitors and no doubt it will. The hrst thing to b3 done is to raise euousrn money to tntertaia the firemen and their friends properly, and thi6 will Lave to be done by public subscrip tion. .Money inus donated mav do a little hard to jrive now. but it ia an ad vertisement that will be of untold value to Kl Paso in the future. Don't be stingy. So Mrs. Bradley-Martin got "real mid' at the comment on her fancv ball of a few weeks aero, and she has shaken off the dust of New York, with he threat that she will never come back. Probably New York will sur- ive. On second thoughts, that is about the best thing she could do. If a lot more like her would leave the country, it would be all the better for their departure. 'The city council has no right to go ;yend the city charter for law gov erning that body on any subject cov- red by the charter," said a prominent eiuocratic lawyer this morning-. "If he charter is wrong then it does not evolve on the council to prove it so. but on tome party who has a grievance against the charter. The city charter expressly says that the city council shall decide all contests of city elec tions, and there is no law showing directly that the clause has been repealed.-' The Buckman Farce Corned v com- ij2?ing Clo tilings In the latest styles, Immense Stock, just received.
