The many friends of Mr. Frank W. Searle in this city, will be pleased to hear that he is having a: profitable trip in the interest of the firm he is engaged by, in the West Indies.

The coffee crop, the principal, industry of that section is reported large, and prospects-good for a satisfactory yield. The Official Count Completed Yesterday Afternoon, Bead, Swadciicr. Hofl*«mii, JUmslbrd and Huriicx. Have a Majority oil (lie Fuce of the RetuniN. The official count was begun yesterday afternoon at the Council Chamber and carried along without incident until the second precinct of the Third ward was reached. This precinct voted at Torr's cooper shop, and Jerry Sullivan was the inspector. When that precinct was reached Mr Sullivan stated that by mistake the tally sheets and election returns had been put in the sack with the contested ballots and sealed up, and that unless the Board would give him permission to open that package in their presence they would have no returns. The request was granted. A protest was then entered but afterwards withdrawn when it was apparent that the right to do so was given by the election law. No other incident occurred and the count was completed by 4 o'clock. There were no material changes, and only three changes from the unofficial returns were made. Barnes gained, five in one precinct and lost three in another, and Dean gained five. Altogether fifty-five votes were reported protested and not counted. What these "rotes are or what defects existed cannot be stated.' Under the law, protested ballots are sealed up and cannot be examined unless a contest is filed. In one precinct in the Fifth ward three Republican votes were thrown out because the eagle was stamped instead of the square. In another, five were nhus thrown out and in another four for Read were counted. It is apparent that all should have been thrown out or all counted. A lack of uniformity in this respect resulted in an injustice to Mr. Webster. No ticket is legal unless the square is stamped but the intent is so plain where the eagle and" rooster is stamped that such tickets are usually counted. A contest can be begun any time within ten days and should it be apparent that Mr, Webster has suffered an injustice a contest will be made. No technical points will be taken advantage of but the will of the • voters determined. The tabulated statement of the rote appears in another part of the paper. The following- is a summary of the official vote. FOB MAYOR. .1421 """'"""" mo Read [P] Webster [ Bead's majority FOB CLERK. Swade-er M (iorraira [Dl -"28 Swadener's majority 57 FOB TREASURER.

E] TnimatH Majority .................................................. 37 NOTES. Two years ago the Democrats broke faith, and nominated Gus Gleitz for Water Works Trustee against Tommy Austin. Mr. -Austin was elected. Again they attempted to bring the water works system into the control of the ring 1 and nominated an active politician and were defeated. The Republicans won both fights on a fair square fight. They should cut down the salary of the water works clerk, who novr gets $75 per month, and an office room, and put in two or three non-partisan Republicans to even up on the non partisan agreement. Inspector Kearney of the First ward; objected to the clerks stating how many ballots were contested, raots which there was no -secrecy about and which the newspaper representatives would be compelled to gather up. He also objected to Mr. W. . T. Wilson speaking before Board as a representative of Mr. Webster.' Mr. Kearney should hang out of the window awhile and let the freshness blow Off Let the new Council get a hustle on them and appoint a new park committee and. Assembly Park wli be a reality. In the warm days of August not many years hence the editor of tLe Pharos can sit under the trees in Assembly park, where the rippling waves upon the shore will encourage meditation and the blushing roses and the joyous music of the birds enliven the imagination and reflect upon the correctness of the fact that to the visionless all things are visionary. Tne Republicans have elected Foley, Middleton, and others of the few Republican Irishmen to office. The Journal is glad to see that the number in the Republican party is increasing. They are welcome,and will be well treated. No Irish need apply to the Democratic party for office. It is a glorious thing to win even if it necessitates answering three thousand questions a day, figuratively yelling with every gratified citizen met with and putting ideas into tolerable English while a conversational bee is being held in the same room. The Reporter is after the gang in beautiful style. Get a last evenings Reporter and enjoy yourself. • Joseph Guthrie makes a gentlemanly, dignified, and-fair presiding officer of a returning board.
