The oily election , Tuesday , wai
ono of the moat hotlv contested
over hold in the oity. The prinoi.
pin issue was political. Both the
republicans and fuaioniata had tick-
eta in the field asking the suffrage
of the people. The hoonao ques
tion was nn important factor that
cut no little figure in the result.
Both political organizations had
pnsHod resolutions pledging their
nominoofl to abide by the majority
vote on the question of liquor II-
oonso , but the republican nominees
wore regarded by the voteni at
most nearly representing the torn ,
pcraucc clement , and as a result
they got the support of that class
of voters , with but low executions.
of all parties. Upon the other |
hand , a number of republicans who :
favored licotuo supported the fus
ion nominoop , fooling they were
moro favorable to their views of
the question , so in this way a
double issue was at otako. Strong
populists , who wore against lioonoo ,
supported the republican ticket and
republicans who favored lioanao
supported the citizen's ticket , but
as Ed. Royce , the republican uom-
itiuo lor mayor , was elected by
eighty six majority over J. J. Wil
son , carrying each ward in the oity ,
and as license was defeated by onl/
sixteen votes , it argues that many
republicans who favored license
alao voted for Royoe for mayor.
The vote on city clerk was the least
complicated and comes nearest of
showing the republican majority in '
the oily. The vote was thirty BIZ
majority for R , D. Picket , ropub *
licauv. ever C. H. Holoomb.
AH both Bides wuro confident of
success they both worked bard all
day. Every voter : in tbo oity waa
induced by either ono or the other
side to go to the polls and vote ,
yet the election , while animated ,
wr.s quiet and the boat of fooling
prevailed among the workers of iho
different political parties. The
miration of lovyiiiu five mills for
electric light purposes wns not
generally undoretood by the people
and foi that reason was defeated
by a small majority. The repub
licans elected every officer except
councilman in the second ward ,
where E. It. Purcell was olooted
over J. W. Bruoo by seveu votes.
This ward bus always been
the "Irish word"
regarded as or
populist strong hold , and none
were surprised ever the outcome ,
yet better results were hoped for.
The first ward still retains the
honor of being the banner ward of
the oily. It gave republican ma
jorities of thirty four to foity ono ,
