The charter olection on Monday was a triangular fight, only tliat tUo Rcpublican uugle liad its hoad koooked off, tho Mayor candidato, Dr. SmiTH, withdrawing - aecording to arrangement, - his frionds generally gcing for the Democratie candidato. The Democratie ticket nominatcd on Friday evening was a good one, and was headcd by onu of the most popular men in tho party, in city or county. We saw many men voting and working against him undei protest, but they couldn't swallow tho backew whose shoulders he stood on. It was not Joux J. Robison they voted against, but the men who had foroed liiin apon the ticket tobeat Mayor Douolass, becauso of his persistent efc forts to protect our goodly city against free trade in liquors. That is the ploin English of it in a fow words. Carrying such he,avy weights he made a big run and came near winning. CoLE, the Democratie nomineo for Re corder, was not so lively a pacer. He was put up to get the votes of those stift' backed Domocrats who never scratch a ticket, and whc couldn't have votod if a Democratie ticket hadn't been nominated. He rakod in 52 such " hard sholls," tho largor nuinber of tho Deinoerats who opposed tho Citizens' movoment, " frora principie," ratifying tho bargain which had been mado with the Republicans who wouldn't fuse, and voting for GlilTNER. It was right to fuso ono way but not the other. On Justices of the Pesoe tho pull was a little more ovun, but the light voto of the Democratie candidatos shows that a largo portion of the Democratie vote was given to tho Citizens' ticket - largor in l'aet tlian tho figures show, for Messrs. llOOT and WlDENMANN received a large number of ltopublican votes. With these prelirainary remarks we give the figures and our fnends can digest them at theil leisure : FOK MAYOR. Douglaaa. Robison. Smilli.
