The election, Monday, was a tiotly contested one in this city and a large vote, for a spring election was cast. The vote at noon was exceedingly light but a determined effort on the part of both parties iu the aftemoon succeeded in bringing out a large vote. The Australian ballot system prevented an inkling of the result from getting out uu til the slow procesa of counting the votes began. A great deal of scratching was indulged in, inany voters remaining in the booths for Bfteen ; minutes. A much larger number of íspoiled ballets were found this year tlian last. In fact in the lirst ward there were 9 unmarked city ballots and 20 unmarked state. In the second ward there were 30 unmarked ballots, and in the third ward 37. The Democrats had noininated one of tlie clean est I men in the city, Eugene G. Manu for mayor, and natnrally expected snccess. The greatest work was put in on the Republican-Municipal Club-ProhibiI tion combination, which had made a I shrewd move by putting up a crat, Prof. B. M. Thompson, to head their ticket. Col. Thompson made a good run and received many Democratie votes. Mr. Mann, though defeated, made a good run under adverse circumstances and received many Republican votes. The city went llepublican on the state ticket. Witli the Prohibitiunists and Municipal Club memoere voting with the Eepublicans, it could hardly be expected todootherwiseon the city ticket. Mr. Mann made a line run in his home ward, the first, as did Col. Thompson in his home wan], the sixth. The majorities for Thompson were asfollovvs: First ward, 48; fourth, 24: sixth, }.. The majorities for Mann were: Second, 165; third, 32; fifth, 9; leaving Thompson's majority in the city 43. The vote by wards was as follows: Mann. Thompson.

Although, if good ofücials deserve to be complimented with second terms, he deserved a still stronger testimonial. Miller, however, leads his ticket, carrying four wards as follows: Second, 167; third,44; fourth, 20; flfth, 19. Mills, who made such a gallant fight, carried the first by 47 and the sixth by 148, as follows: Miller. . Mills.
