The election Monday in this county failed to see many changes, but as a rule the democrats did slightly better than last year. They gained one member of the board of supervisors, üf the townships thirteen elected democratie supervisors and seven republican. If the township returns furnish any indication as to hqw the county stands, ít would seem as if th e democrats had a little the best of it. The Argus has taken some pains to gather complete returns and ilatters itself with being the only paper to contain the number of votes cast tor every candidate who ran for office in this county last Monday, the vote on each defeated constable even being iucluded. It will be seen that our returns are absolutely complete. ïhey are given without much comment but will bear study by all the politicians. In all cases names of the democratie candidates are placed flist and republicana second, so that all may know on what ticket each candidate was and the loss of space through repeating the words democrats and republican is avoided. ANN AIUiOR CITY. The democrats gained two aldermen in Ann Arbor city and materially reduced the republican majorities in the first and seventh wards. The democratie ticket in the fifth went through with flying colors. The new council stands: 9 republicans to 6 democrats as against 11 to 4 last year. Of the seven new aldermen eleeted Monday six have never seen service on the council before, which carried out a prediction frequently heard that the people would change the council as soon as they got a chance at it.
