The affairs of the recorders office during Mr. Conner's administration have been conducted in an admirable manner. Never in the history oi the country have the records been in such excellent shape, and never have the nurners callers at the office found one single reasonable ground for com plaint. Having brought the office up to such a degree of perfection it seems nothing more than reasonable, just and for the best interests of the coun ty, that, in the ending election, the voters testify li.tir appreciation of Mr. Conner's services, and maintain in office one of the most competent and obliging officials the county has had for years.

There are always to be found a greater or smaller number of sore heads, men with a personal axe to grind, men who boast of their loyalty and fealty to their respective parties, but who, when disappointed as seekers after a plumb in the great scramble for political honor and emolument, seem to become disgruntled, and for the time being sour on the en tire human family. The recent democratic convention for the nomination of county officers was no exception to this universal rule. The Bazoo by its course has demon strated in far more forcible terms than this brief article cm voice, that it is not the organ of any party, clique or ring, reserving always to itself the right to support for the public service those men who are the most intelli gent, the most capable, and above all, those whose record for honesty can not be successfully impeached. The object of this article is not to advo cate the claims and further the candi dacy o any particular individual, 1 he Bazoo has no candidate, and wants that most emphatically under stood, but in justice to the people whose interests, it always endeavors faithfully to subserve it, without knowing who the republican or inde pendent candidate may be, desires to present briefly the claims of Mr. John W. Conner, the present incum bent and regular nominee of the democratic party for the office of county recorder. Whatever may be said to the con- trary, it cannot be successfully denied that Mr, Conner received the most gratify Lig and complimentary en dorsement of his party in county convention assembled. The Bazoo doubts not that it must be extremely gratifying to Mr. Conner, to receive this hand some recognition at the hands of the party in whose lanxs he has ever zealously labored, and accomplished a vast amount-for its perfect organiza tion and ultimate triumph ; more than this, John W. Conner has ever been an enthusiastic, an able and an effective worker in the interest of Se dalia and Pettis county, not as a schemer in the interest of any one, but as heart and soul imbued with a love for the material prosperty and final suocss of the Queen C.ty of the Prairies. Mr. Conner has been a hard work ing man all of his life, and while it cannot be said of him tnat he earned his livelihood by the actual sweat of his brow, he, while a boy, did some very lively hustling to maintain a re spectable and honorable position in life and has thus far been more than ordinarily successful. He is yet a comparatively young man, having been born in Clark county, Kentucky, September 15th, 1849. He removed with his parents to Cooper county in 1857, where he received his early ed ucation, in 18b7 ne went to Chicago where he took a practical, commercial course, and secured employment in a civil engi neer corps, with which he remained some time, being a member of the topographical force which surveyed the M. a. A T. railroad. For yean Mr. Conner held various clerical positions, always with credit to himself and profit to his employers. In 1879 he was apppoinied deputy county recorder, under Capt. S. W . Richey, and there proved his faithful ness and efficiancy as a public servant, showing an adaptability to the work which was at once appreciated by his employer, and tile patrons of the office. In February 1882 Hhe services of the able young c lerk were rewarded by his appointment to the office of re corder, vice Capt. Richey, deceased.

A Husband Arrested Yesterday for Killing His Wife. Kansas City, July 10. A mysterious case of murder or suicide which "it is can not yet be determined was reported from Kansas City, Kas., about noon to-day. It appears that at an early hour this morn ing Mr. and Mrs Halp'in, a couple living on James street near the police station, had a serious quarrel and the woman was assaulted by her husband with a skillet. Her head was cut and she was badly bruis ed at the result of the blows she had re ceived, but her injuries were not such as to have caused death. Soon after committing the assault upon his wife, Halpin left the house and has not !een seen since 4 o'clock a. ra. Between 1 1 and 12 o'clock Mrs. Halpin was visited bv a neighbor named Mrs. McCarthy, to whom she detailed the story of her suffering from the c ntinued ill treatment of her husband, and said she had determine to obtain a divorce. She then asked Mrs. McCarthy to ico to a neighboring grocery store and get her some potatoes for din ner. This the woman consented to do. and left Mrs. Halpin sitting on a chair in the front room ol her hou e. On returning a few minutes afterwar s she was found Ty ing on the door of the back room ; and daring the interval she had either died or been killed. There was no blood on her face or body, and nothing specially in dicative of violence She had not been dead long, however, wLen her face and neck began to be covered with black spots, and this was at first supposed to be evi dence of strangulation. hat was actually the cause of her death remains a mystery. No one is known to have entered the house between the time that Mrs. Mc Carthy left and returned, and her husband could not have been there without being seen by some of the neighbors, all of whom were indignant at the woman's story of ii is continued cruelty toward her. A doctor who was called in gave it as his op nion that the woman died from natural causes, superinduced by the reaction from the shock to which she had been exposed, but investigation and a post mortem ex amination will be necessary to establish whether or not this is the case. Halpin, who was formerly night watch man at Armour's packing house, but has been for some time out ot work; was last seen walking in the direction of the Han nibal railroad bridge. The deceased was about 4o years of age. At 2:30 this p. m., tne police were in inrmed of the capture of Halpin. He was found in the southwestern part of the city. SPORTING NEWS. Base Ball.

The greatest game of base bail ever played in Chicago was that of this afternoon, between the Cbi Cagos and Detroits, and the interest of the 16 000 people present was intense. The Chicagos played in an absolutely perfect style, and the visitors were net one whit behind. The batting was in Chicagos favor to the extent of seven hits with a total of fourteen bases, while Clark son held the visitors down to five hits for a total of seven. Owing to Richardsons' three bagger, which was properly a home run, but he was held at by Harbor to keep Clarkson on his nerve. The excitement in the last half of the last inning when Richardson had a three bag- ;r and was followed b a base hit by hompson, was intense. Every nerve was strung to its utmost, and when the last man was put out by Pfeiffer the ovation was one grand howl of victory and never in the history of the game in this city has the excitement been equalled- Some grand fielding, was done on both sides anc Sanday bears off the palm for fine work. Then comes Flint and Pfefffer with double plays. SCORE. Chicago - - - 001101000$ Detroit - - - 0000000011 due, won fime Chicago Races. Chicago, Ills., July 10. Weather track good, attendance large.
