But the Heads of Several
Local Tickets Are Won
McKISSON IS BEATEN
Headed Bolting Republicans and
Bourbons in the Legislature
Against Senator Hanna.
Specla: to The Call.
CINCINNATI, April 3.— The elections
In Ohio to-day were : general for mu
nicipal and township officers. While
local issues usually control' these soring
elections, yet there were other influ
ences In some places to-day. At Cleve
land there was a decisive Democratic
victory on the head of the ticket only,
but it was not one due alone to the
local opposition to May McKisson for
a third term. McKisson last year was
the candidate of the bolting Republi
cans and the Democrats In the Legis
lature against Senator Hanna.
At Columbus a publican Mayor
was elected for the first time in twelve
years. At Cincinnati the Republicans
have a plurality of 7000, though the
present Democratic Mayor was elected
• two years ago by almost as large a
plurality.. At Toledo an independent Re
publican was elected on Pingree issues,
assisted by factional complications. At
Dayton the Democrats made municipal
gains, but the Republicans gained in
the townships, which seemed to be the
case. throughout the State.
While the greatest change was at
Cleveland, where the Republicans have
controlled the city for years with Rob
ert McKisson as Mayor, yet what is
known as the Western Reserve main
tains its usual Republican majorities,
with some gains over those of former
April elections, notably at Youngstown,
. Warren, Cadiz, Delaware and other cit
ies in Northeastern Ohio. In the small
er cities, as well as in the rural dis
tricts, the Republicans claim gains, no
tably at Chillicothe, where there was a
change, Mayor Brown being defeated
• for re-election by James Wood by 300.
At Defiance the Democrats lost two [
Councilmen and a member of the Board
of Education. At Hamilton the Demo
. crats maintained their majority, also at ;
Lima, Newark, Circleville, Upper San
dusky, Wapakoneta, Millersburg and
Van Wert. At Zanesville and Marys
ville. the Republicans were successful.
■ and they made gains at Napoleon. As
a rule the vote was light At Canton,
..the home of McKinley, James Robert
son, Republican, was ■ ■ -ted Mayor by
thirteen plurality, a change from the
present Democratic administration.
Weather conditions were favorable
for a full vote at the city municipal
election, yet only 44,500 votes were cast.
The. - were only three officials to be
elected — Judge of the Superior Court
and two members of the Board of City
Aftairs. . he official result is as follows:
■Rufus B. Smith CR.)i Judge of the
Superior Court, 30,432. Judge Smith

The official vote of members of the
Board of City Allans was: William

(R.), 2ti,275; H. J. Enneking (D.), 18,778;
J. C. Sherlock (D.), £73; average Re
publican majority, 6976.
A vote taken on authorizing the city
to purchase the zoological gardens for
a park resulted: For purchase, 20,180;
The two other tickets in the field poll
ed almost nothing.
' COLUMBUS. Ohio, April 3.— Samuel
L. Black . D.), Mayor of Columbus, was
defeated lor re-eiection by Samuel J.
Swartz (R.), formerly Police Judge, by
a decisive majority. Mayor Black is
president of the League of American
Muncipalitles, and this fact was used
as an argument in support of his can
didacy by the party managers. The
election was fought on strictly party
lines, however, and was one of the most
bitterly contested in the history of the
city, the total vote cast, 27,264, being
heavier than at the gubernatorial elec
tion of last fall. Judge Swartz is the
lirst (Republican elected Mayor of the
city in twelve years. The city is nor
mally Republican by about 1000, though
it has given majorities of upward of
3000. Heretofore local issues and fac
tional lights have operated against the
Republicans, but united action was se
cured tv-day by an agreement which
• gave Judge Nash, who is candidate for
the Republican nomination for Govern
.or, the solid delegation from Franklin
' County in the coming State convention.
The vote is as follows. Swartz (R.),
14,151; Black (D.), 12,758; Swartz' plu
There were three minor party can
didates, but they polled an insignificant
vote. All other candidates on the lie
publican ticket were elected.
TOLEDO, Ohio, April 3.— To-day was
a perfect election day, clear and cool,
and the large registration was fully
brought out. It is probable that 26,000
. votes were cast for the head of the
ticket, but the Jones men, after voting
for their favorite candidate, seemed to
care little for the minor offices, and the
consequence is that the other candi
dates will fall short. Mayor S. M.
Jones, who was a candidate on an in
dependent ticket, with a platform for
municipal ownership of public utilities,
has been elected by at least 5000 plu
rality and probably a majority over all.
The contest was marked by great
spirit, but no arrests were made and no
disturbances were reported. The vote
being heavy the count is slow, but the
returns seem to show that the regular
Republican ticket, except for Mayor,
has been elected by a close vote.
• At 10 o'clock the Jones management
had heard unofficially from nearly
every precinct in the city and they give
Jones a plurality of 5000.
They state that their candidate will
have a majority over all others and
they concede that the Republican nom
inees, except for Mayor, are elected.
John Farley Elected.
CLEVELAND. Ohio. April 8.-John H.
Farley (D.) was elected Mayor over Rob
ert E. McKission (R.), incumbent,
.to-day by a plurality of about 3600..
The first returns indicated a much
.greater victory for Farley, but his plural
ity was cut down by later returns. The
remainder of the Republican ticket, in
cluding City Treasurer, Police Judge, Po
lice Prosecutor, Justice and four mem
bers of the School Council elected at
large, will have substantial pluralities.
Tin Republicans will control the City
McKisson's defeat was due to the de
fection of Republicans who voted against
him because of his bolt from Senator
Hanna and his party during the contest
before the Legislature a year ago last
winter. The whole ticket suffered some
STOLEN AT CHICAGO
Two Suits TaKen by a Thief
May Cause a Smallpox
CHICAGO, April 3.— One Chicago thief has stolen more than he bar
gained for. He is in possession of two suits of clothes infected with viru
lent smallpox. The suits were taken from a clothes line at 777 North
Clark street Saturday evening. They belong to C. W. Gassert, one of
the disinfectors of the health department. Gassert spent Saturday in
working among- the colored population of Chicago's smallpox infected
district. When he went home he hung the suit he had been wearing
and another one which he was to fumigate, on the clothes line in the
rear of the house. Sunday morning he went to get the garments to sub
ject them to disinfection, but they were gone. The health department
is much perturbed, as it fears the clothes, which were new and of good
quality, may be pawned and purchased and the disease widely spread
by the new owner, thereby causing an epidemic.

DUTY OK LUMBER
Great Industry Needs
Special Dispatch to The Call.
TACOMA, April 3.— United States
Senator Addison C. Foster, after spend
ing several weeks investigating in the
East and Middle West sentiment as to
the attitude of the joint high commis
sion on the lumber and coai tariffs and'i
the Alaska boundary question, has re
turned to his home in this city. He
"I am of the opinion that theo-emoval
I of the duty on lumber is one, of the
most important concessions sought by
i England. In fact, while the desired
( pert of entry to the northern gold fields
j is much in demand among Canadians
and Englishmen, I rather incline to the
opinion that a satisfactory adjustment
|of the lumber and coal schedules is
; equally, if not more so, in demand. On
my way west I consulted with various
'. Senators and Congressmen on this sub
ject and I rind, all things considered,
■ that our lumber people in all parts of
the United States are inclined to yield
! a little in this matter provided the tar
iff on lumber, and coal, also, if possible,
could be made part of the treaty. Lum
bering is a great industry and we could
not for a moment consider the proposi
tion to remove the tariff altogether.
"The lumbermen, as a rule, would
willingly make a reduction on the tariff
from $2 to $1 60 a thousand provided
• that rate were made a part of the
treaty and thereby became permanent
as long as the tr< aty lasts. This would
| constitute a reduction of 20 per cent in
the lumber tariff as now in force."
Senator Foster is opposed to making
' reductions in the tariff on lumber on
Bp< cial grades. This, in his oponion,
would not prove satisfactory and would
; be certain to result in abuses of the
privileges granted. He strongly favors
' the joint high commission, or, at least,
! the American membi rs thereof, visiting
; the Pacific Northwest and making a
trip of inspection to Alaska. He has
already Invited a number of friends t>>
I the coast and believes much more rea
sonable anil Just terms could be ag
! upon if the members of the commission
were thoroughly posted by a personal
' inspection regarding the conditions ex
isting here and in Alaska.
Senator Foster urges the policy of
expansion as being a part of the com
mercial necessities of the age. He
holds that the United States must ex
pand commercially to hold its place
' with the great powers of the world and
that the Orient is the only great field
: for expansion of this kind.

ON THE TOTE
Chicago's Peculiar Mayoralty
Contest Will Be Decided
Adherents of Harrison and Carter
Are Hopeful and There Is Promise
of Bloodshed at the Polls.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
CHICAGO, April 3.— The vote to be
polled by John P. Altgeld in the Mayor
alty election to-morrow is admitted by
all parties to be a most undecided fac
tor, and yet it is the thing upon which
all three candidates— Harrison (Demo
crat), Carter (Republican), and Altgeld
(Independent Democrat) are basing
their hopes of final success. The Alt
geld men say that their candidate, who
is standing upon the Chicago platform,
will secure the straight Silver Demo
cratic vote, and will certainly be
elected. They allow him 140,000 votes.
In the headquarters of the Harrison
faction to-night there is the greatest
confidence. They say that there is not
the slightest doubt of the Mayor's re
election. They give him 180,000 votes,
as against 100,000 for Carter and 30,000
for Altgeld. In the Republican camp
the estimate is: Carter, 130,000; Harri
son, 120,000, *nd Altgeld, 80,000. They
claim that Altgeld will draw enough
votes from Harrison to elect Carter be
yond a doubt. The Democrats agree
that there will be something of a de
fection in the Harrison ranks in view
of Altgeld, but say that the votes to
come to Harrison from the Republican
ranks will more than offset whatever
he will lose by the candidacy of Alt
The sober discussion is, however, in
all the headquarters that there has
been seldom, if ever, an election in
Chicago so difficult to forecast with ac
curacy as this one. Not one of the par
ties has made an attempt to poll votes
prior to election and their estimates
are for the most part guesswork. It is
admitted on all sides that the size of
the Altgeld vote will determine the re
sult. If he secures close to 100,000 votes
It means the election of Carter, the
Republican candidate. If he has under
40,000, and the estimates run all the
way" between the figures, Harrison will
be elected. If Altgeld has much over
100,000 he is likely to be elected, but the
majority of politicians in both the
Democratic and Republican rank? Bay
that they have little fear of his elec
tion. It is the way his vote is to turn
the final result that is disturbing them.
The Republicans .are expecting
trouble at the polls to-morrow r in sev
eral wards particularly in the First and
Eighteenth. They say the Democrats
have "colonized" extensively; that they
know the "colonists," and under no cir
cumstances will they be permitted to
The Democracy in the wards men
tioned deny any illegal work and say
every Democrat who comes to the polls
shall cast his vote.
The Michigan Election.
DETROIT, Mich., April 3.-To-day's
election in Michigan has not shown any
marked change in the general political
complexion of the State, which is nor
mally Republican, but the result show*
quite heavy Democratic gains in some or
the larger cities, notably so in Detroit,
Grand Rapids, Saginaw, Jackson and
Kalamazoo. On a generally light vote the
Republicans hold their own in the smaller
and throughout the rural districts.
Circuit Judges were elected in thirty-six
judicial districts. Of these about 'two
thirds of the new Judges, who are elected
for the six-year terms, are Republicans.
The Republicans re-elected Judge C. B
Grant as Justice of the Supreme Court
by a majority of at least 20,000. They
also elected Henry S. Dean and Eli S.
Sutton as Regents of Michigan University
by somewhat greater majorities.

of the coast province, had made a de

time of all customs duties paid by them
to the de facto government during the

BUFFALO, N. T., April 3.— A special from Quebec says: It is now
publicly admitted that the Dominion of Canada is without defenses, and
has no army worthy of the name. This statement is made upon the au
thority of the head of the supposed army, the general who commands
it. General Hutton is a first-class imperial officer who has seen active
service in various parts of the empire, notably in Egypt, where he has
served with Gordon, Wood and Kitchener. He has been newly appoint
ed to the command of the Canadian forces, and his first official report
upon the condition of the supposed army has created more than a mild
sensation, both in military, civil and political circles in Canada. The
general declines to speak of the force at all as an army. In fact, he de
clares that it is not an army.

that ex-County Clerk Bonneau would re

defalcation In office at the hands of the
Board of Supervisors was fulfilled to

the thought that a man who had cred

taking of a paltry $123 out of the treas

do it. The attention of the board was
drawn to the matter hy a communication
from District Attorney Mclsaac contain

Mr. Brinneau was on hand and told how
the discrepancies occurred. He said the
law required all marriage certificates to
be recorded within thirty days after the
ceremony and its non-observance led to
the trouble. County Clerk Graham cer
tified that Mr. Bonneau had had the books

the last eighteen rtionths rumblings of the
approaching storm have been heard. Big
printing houses have been compelled to
decrease their dividends owing to en
croachment of the small offices on their
business. The, formation of the trust be
gan about three months ago. All but six
of the forty printing establishments are
in the combine. Each member of the
trust has given a bond of $50 to be paid
in case of infringement of the rules gov
erning prices. One of the results of the
combination has been the knocking out of
the union label, which has been used in
all union offices during the last three
years. Non-union offices refused to enter
the combine unless the union label was

AGAIN FEEDING AT
THE PUBLIC CRIB
Boarder Mackenzie Once
More "On Earth."
Special Dispatch to The Call.
SAN JOSE, April 3.— The announce
ment of the appointment of John D.
Mackenzie as chief deputy by Ccipnty
Auditor Thomas F. Morrison has
caused consternation among the tax
payers and citizens of this city and
county. The Rea forces were over
whelmingly defeated at the last elec
tion and the reform parties thought the
ex-Game Warden was ousted from thy
public crib for good. Instead, Macken
zie, who for years has been ex-Boss
Rea's lieutenant, has landed on his feet
again. This time he is cold-blooded in
his demands, and has made Auditor
Morrison create a place especially for
When Auditor Veuve's death occurr
ed a couple of weeks ago Mackenzie de
manded the place of the Supervisors,
who had the filling of the vacancy. Su
pervisors Rea and Austin consented,
but Supervisor Stern demurred. Stern,
who owes his position to the gang,
pleaded with Mackenzie not to insist
on haying the place. He said it would
kill him politically and ruin his busi
ness as a dealer in harness and saddles.
Stern consented to vote for any one
Mackenzie would name and suggested
Morrison, who he said would make
Rea's lieutenant a deputy. This bar
gain was finally clinched. Mrs. Veuve,
the widow of the late Auditor, had
many friends, and they insisted on her
being made a deputy. Morrison con
sented to this.
Morrison was appointed by the Su
pervisors and to-day he appointed both
Mrs. Veuve and Mackenzie as deputi-s.
Heretofore the Auditor has not had |
any deputies. The salary is $4000 a
year. Out of this it is said Mrs. Veuve
will get $1000 and Mackenzie and Mor
rison will divide the balance equally.
This partnership will give Santa Clara
County three servants instead of one
at the old salary.
Morrison is also Police and Fire Com
missioner, and if this alleged co-part
nership extends to this office there still
remains plenty of work for the reform
forces of the Good Government League,
Democrats and Populists.

The Sad Condition of a
Prominent Lady of
CONSTANT DREAD OF IMPENDING DEATH.
' SHE TELLS OF HER DELIVERANCE.*
How many men and women there are
who suffer from functional heart dis-
ease and how pleasing it is to know
that a remedy has been found that re-
duces the fatalities from this dreaded
disease to a minimum. Here comes the
interesting story of Miss Florence Mer-
ritt, a prominent young lady of New-
ark, N. J. She says:
I was all run down in health and as
• pale as death. My eyes were sunken, and
my cheeks were hollow. Had no appetite
and was so weak that I could hardly drag
myself around. I suffered from heart
disease, complicated with stomach trou-
ble, and feared that every day would be
my last. A friend advised me of the great
Hudyan remedy, and I took it. I am to-
day a perfect picture of health. Hudyan
Is an honest and reliable remedy and. will
cure. MISS FLORENCE MERRITT.
Such praise as the above comes to us
every day. Hudyan is curing men and
women in every State of this great
Union. ' Hudyan cures because it
reaches every nerve and tissue in the
human organism. If you suffer . from
stomach disorder, Hudyan will act
upon the mucous membrane and will
stimulate the gastric follicles to action.
If you suffer from liver trouble, Hud-
yan will correct the action of this large
gland, will divert the bile from the
blood into its proper channels, thus re-
lieving the bowels. If you are a victim
of kidney disease, Hudyan will assist
their action, which is to take from the
blood the impurities that poison the
system and breed disease. If your
nervous system is wrecked, it matters
not the cause, and you suffer from
weakness, dizzy spells, sleeplessness,
loss of appetite, and the many other
symptoms due to a broken-down nerv-
ous system, Hudyan is an invigorant
that never fails. If you are weak and
emaciated, you will find Hudyan to be
| a splendid tonic. You will not be dis-
| appointed in Hudyan.
