THE BEE: OMAHA, SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 1912.
13 Council Bluffs Council Bluffs Council Bluffs Council Bluffs RETURNS OF LATE ELECTION County Supervisors Complete the Count, Finding Few Changes. TOTALS REMAIN ABOUT SAME Fisores Showing; Difference in Speed at Which the Differ ent Election Boards Worked. The county supervisors yesterday com pleted the canvass of the voie cast at the primary election. There were numer ous changes, but were of minor char acter. Errors were found in the vote for Senator Kenyon that added fifteen to his total and reduced the vote for Young, that number. Holderr's lead over Clark for governor was also slightly increased. Following the count of the ballots came the allowance of the claims of judges and clerks of election. The can vass of the claims indicated remarkable differences, with the advantage 6howing distinctly In favor of the work of the election boards in the country. In the First precinct of the Fifth ward it required forty-two hours to count the ballots and make the returns showing 291 votes, and in Belknap town ship, where there were 257 votes cast, it only took twenty-one hours to com plete the work. In the second precinct of the Fourth ward it required thirty hours to count 154 votes, and In Knox township 298 votes were properly counted and returns completed in twenty-six hours. In the First precinct of the Fourth ward it required forty hours to count 221 votes but the "farmers" out in Lincoln township counted 201 votes In twenty hours. In the ' second precinct of the Fifth ward it kept the Judges and clerks busy for forty hours counting 105 bal lots, while the men entrusted to do the work out - in Carson township counted 123 ballots in eighteen hours. In the First precinct of the Third ward the judge and clerks counted 325 ballots in twenty-four hours but it took twenty hours for the judges and clerks in the third precinct of the Fifth ward to count eighty-seven votes. The heaviest bills were rendered by the Fifth ward elec tion boards, forty-two hours In the first precinct, forty hours in the second and twenty hours In the third precinct. The board had previously agreed to allow 25 cents an hour, making $10 each for the forty-hour workers. The disproportion of the charges put up a problem to the county board that the members decided to sleep on and will try to adjust when the session begins at 9 o'clock this morning. It is quite likely that some of the bills will be scaled. Several of the precincts failed to make any notation of the time required and their books will have to be corrected before the men will get any1 pay for their work. The examination of the bills of all kinds show that the little primary has been more expensive than any prev ious election, including presidential con tests when four times as heavy a vote has been cast. The official canvass of the ballots cast in the entire county show the following for the republican candidates: United States Senator-William S. Ken yon. 2.099 Lafayette Young, 1.518.

Park Commissioners Will Resist Payment The board of park commissioners held an informal meeting yesterday and de cided to resist any attempt on the part of the city to force the payment from the park funds of the cost of paving on Willow avenue and the new cement walks that have been constructed on three sides of Bayliss park. The total bill will amount to about $2,900. j The matter was pretty fully discussed at the adjourned meeting of the city council on Wednesday afternoon and it was then decided that the bill for the pavement at least should not be charged against the park board and on the as sessment schedule approved the cost is charged the city. Yesterday, however, some of the members of the council took another view of it and so informed mem bers of the park board. The park com missioners rely upon the plain construc tion of the law that makes them responsible only for expenditures with the parks for the purposes of develop ment and maintenance. The law plainly exempts the board from the payment of all expenses outside the parks, although connected with them. Under the law the board may refuse to pay for any of the street lamps that are placed In the parks and may also require the city to pay the expenses of the park policemen. Chairman Graham of the park board yes terday recalled the positive refusal to pay for the Willow avenue paving when the matter was called to his attention last autumn for the reason that the pay ment of such a large sura would cripple the park fund and Tender Impossible the carrying forward the program for de velopment planned for this year, includ ing the new driveway Into Falrmount park. He distinctly remembers that there were no promises made In connection with the park levy for this year and theat his understanding was that the city had decided to pay for the work by warrants on the improvement fund. The matter has' no particular public Interest now except from the fact that the im provement fund has "gone glimmering," and that contemplated paving where there are certain to be large deficiencies to be cared for may have to be post poned. Auditor Shows the Balances on Hand City Auditor McAneney yesterday com pleted his balances for the city's finan cial transactions during May. The re port shows that a number of the depart- ments are keeping well within their ex penditures, but that others are going at a pace that will create deficiencies be fore the year ends unless the brakes are applied, notably the police and fire de partments and particularly the streets and alleys.

Kansas and Illinois. The man is believed to be a Russian an archist who vowed vengeance upon every person connected in any degree with his conviction and sentence to prison from Colorado on a charge of theft.
