The democrats were naturally feeling ex
ceedingly Jubilant yesterday, while the re
publicans were taking their defeat philos
ophically and trying to figure out how It
all happened. Owing to the bereavement
of Dr. Macrae ond City .Engineer Etnyre
the democrats have postponed their Jubi

Rash for Pie Counter. . . .
Mayor Macrae and' the new olty council
will have a number of appointments at
their disposal and the Ink had .' hardly
got dry on the election returns Monday
night before the rush for the pie counter
began. The appointments at the disposal
of the city council are: City clerk, chief cf
the fire department, city electrician, who
also combines the office of superintendent
of fire end police telegraph; city physician,
street commissioner, sidewalk Inspector,
poll tax collector, poundmaster and custo
dian of the city building. The city clerk
la permitted to name his deputy subject
to the approval and confirmation by the
With the mayor rests the appointment of
a chief of police and tbe members of the
police department. Street talk yesterday
waa that Louis Zurmuehlen, jr., was
slated for chief of police, but Mr. Zur
muehlen denied the Impeachment that he
was ambitious to don brass buttons and a

said to be legion and that Dr. Macrae is
Inundated with applications.
For chief of the fire department five
names ere prominently mentioned, as fol

Class Rivalry Rans Hlerh.
The spring vacation has given a renewed
and, if anything, a more vigorous start
to the rivalry between the eenlor and
Junior classes of the high school, which
are vlelng with each other In placing their
class colors at the highest point possible
and maintaining them there. Yesterday
morning the seniors, after capturing the
president of the Junior class and eight of
his. classmates, bound their hsnds and feet,
set them on the curb with a guard over
them and forced them to watch the hoist
ing of the seniors' pennant to the top of
the 150-foot electric light tower at Fourth
street and Brosdway. After the flag had
been safely flung to the breeze the seniors
released their captives.
Four hours later the senior class pen
nant went up In smoke. The Juniors, be
ing unable to reach It so Ihey could haul
It down and trample It In the mud, de
cided the next bent thing was to apply the
torch to It, and this with the assistance
of a paid hireling, so the seniors assert,
they succeeded In accomplishing. '
The seniors then entrenched themselves
In a camp on the top of the tall bluff
hack of the High school and, having se
cured a new pennant, again flung It
tauntingly to the breese. The camp of the
seniors was Impregnable from all but one
side and this they kept closely guarded
all day. Towards night the rain forced
the seniors to desert the camp and haul
down their pennant, but new and !nrest
Ing developments In the class rivalry are
looked for today.

ITALIAN SEEKS VENGEANCE
Denounces Compatriot to Polloe as
an Anarchist Who Would Kill
NEW TORK. March 29.-The story of an
alleged plot to assassinate President Roose
velt, which on Investigation proved to be
entirety without foundation, was made pub
lic today by Police Commissioner McAdoo.
' Several days ago the commissioner re
ceived a letter from an Italian In Italy say
ing that snother Italian was about to come
to this country for the express purpose of
assassinating the president. The writer
gave a detailed description cf the alleged
anarchist, the steamer on which he would
sail and full details of the alleged plot.
When the steamer docked an Inspector was
on hand with a large squad of detectives
and the suspect was found and detained.
Investigation, however, showed that the
case was purely one of spite on the part of
the man who wrote the letter. It was
found that the detains man was not an
anarchist and that he had a perfect right
to enter this country. He was allowed to
land. The object of the letter, It was
found, waa to have the man deported.

after a long struggle. It was warmly de
bated In the senate on a motion to indefi
nitely postpone, and this motion finally
prevailed by an overwhelming Vote, showing
that the bill never had any chance of pass

The bill making- appropriations for the

mended for passage. The visiting com
