Mocst HnLLY, X. J., ; rch !l TI:e
Democrats carried Ii;:i-!hi-on county hy
a larjie majority yester ;!av, lint it looks
iov as tlum-h tlie Republican e;:nililates
would lui'.ii the oilier. 'J'li; entire county
is in a state of excitement, fuller the
state law not a sinirle ballot was east for
a Democrat ii: nominee. The Democratic
ballots in this county were not printed He
tjinling to law. The trouble seems to have
risen through a misunderstanding. When
the law wis rwissed three years ao it was
bo framed i.mt. it did :i t apply to town
ship elections. Hy the present legislature
tlie law was so amended that it applied to
every election in the state, whether gen
eral, county or local.
Ntiticed the Irregularity Too I.nte.
The irregularity of the Democratic bal
lots was not noticed until the voting day
had almost passed. Then some of the Re
publicans who had obtained one of the
Democratic ballots discovered the errror
and the fact that it wasan error was at once
communicated to the Hon. Joseph H.
Curkell, who is president of the State
Jjeajrue of Republican Clubs, and resides
in this city. Mr. Carkell promptly took.'
advantage of the error and at each election
district protests were entered against the
counting of these ballots and issuance by
the boards of certificates of election to
Democrats having majorities.
Will Re Decided ly Hie Courts.
In most instances the votes were counted
as they were voted, and the certified re
turns filed with the city, town, and county
clerks. It will now devolve upon the
county boards of election to pass upon the
legality of the ballots. Xo matter what
they may decide the case will lie carried 10
the courts ami the constitutionality of the
Werts law, which has been in dispute but
never before tested, will be passed upon.
Republicans Sweep Citmilen.
Camden, X. J., March 0. The Ilepuli
licans made a clean sweep at the munic
ipal election held hern yesterday. J. Leili
ton Weseott was elected mayor by 2,'HH!
majority over John Hood, Democrat. The
Republicans carried Hood's own district.
The latest returns indicate that the He
publicans will elect twenty-eight mem
bers of the common council. There is not
likely to be a single Democrat on the
board. The race track question was not
brought prominently into the election, al
though Thompson, president of the Glou
cester race track, supported Hood.
The Results in Futon Couuty.
Elizabeth, X. J., March 9. With the
exception of Elizabeth, Rah way, and Plain-
field, elections for freeholders were held
throughout Vnion county yesterday. The
returns are very slow coming in. The Re
publicans appear to have carried Fan wood,
Cranford, Hiden, Westfield, Springfield,
and Xew Providence. The Democrats
carry Summit and Clark. Union township
Is in doubt. If Union township goes Dem
ocratic, as is most likely, this will give the
Democrats control of t lie next board and
the offices by two majority. Should they
lose Union the board will be a tie.
A Cain for the Democrats.
Atlantic City, X. J., March 9. The
Democrats in yesterday's election carried
the city and elected M'illiam Wright,
former postmaster, mayor. The Demo
crats will have a majority in the common
council. The Democrats have carried
liearly all the townships in Atlantic coun
ty. The city always goes Republican.
MAYOR WASHBURNE IS DISGUSTED.
Oov. Flower on the Pi-ess.
Albas v, X. Y., March 9. Governor
er has sent to the legislature a me
Jags upon pending measures and in it oc
turs these Words: "I have no sympathy
Ivith that immoderate concern for public
Interests which sees a bogy in every cor
porate enterprise of a public character;
hor do I approve that wholesale denuncia
tor of men and motives with which a
tvell-meaning but somewhat short-si ghted
nd hysterical press evidently considers it
k duty to greet every corporate attempt
to obtain municipal privilege."
Chicago Klects Delegate.
Chicago, March 9. The Democrats of
Hie four congressional districts in this
city held conventions yesterday to elect
delegates to the national Democratic con
vention. The following were delected:
First district, John I. Hopkins and
Michael Mclnemey: Second, L. W. Kadlec
mid AV. H. Joyce;" Third, R. '. Sullivan

rainier Finds No Fault.
W ASHlSGTON.March 9. Senator Palmer,
referring to the remarks at Chicago of
Colonel Morrison, said yesterday that be
found no fault with the colonel for think
ing him too old to run for president, but
it was a question his friends must deter

ClilCAt.u, March 9. It is asserted on
good authority that Mayor Washburne
has concluded to perform an act which is
unprecedented in the history of Chicago
to tender his resignation as tnayoratati
early day. Shortly after he was elected
he frequently declared when beset by of
liceseekers that the duties of the mayor
alty were not agreeable to him, aud that
he would be glad to lie rid of them.
Attacked by the Republican Press.
He has been considering the advisability
of retiring from office since the Republican
newspapers of the city began a united at
tack on him on account of his approval of
the compressed air ordinance. He was
shocked when it was insinuated by a Re
publican newspaper that he was influenced
to approve the ordinance by the fact that
his business partners, Mr. Lewis aud Mr.
Coffeen, were iuteaested in it.
A City Odicial Remark.
A prominent city hall official, who is
close to the mayor, said: "I have reason to
believe that Mr. Washburne will resign in
side of thirty days. He can bear honest
criticism of his public actions, but he can't
stand the attacks that are Wing made
upon him. The only thing that keeps him
from quitting the office at once is that he
does not like to give any one a chance to
say that he ran away when the batteries
were turned upon him."

people to destroy the Ccniraliti and Ches
Must Stop Its Foolishness.
On the strength of this report Mayor
Liese called a mass meeting of citizen and
resolutions were adopted declaring that if
such attempt was made it would lie resist
ed by armed force. A company of forty
men were then selected and deputized as
special peace officers under the mayor's
order, and instructions were given to pre
pare arms and ammunition to use in case
needed. Where this matter will end there
13 no saying. Blood has been spilled al
ready and more may be.

pion bantam-weight, at the Hotel Genes
see Monday, but was afterward removed.

Flerpont Was of Noble Family.
London, March 9. The news of the
death of the Hon. Edwards Pierpont,
formerly minister to England, has caused
sincere grief here iu the social and official
circles in which be mingled. Although
bis claim to descent from the duke of
Kingston caused him much ridicule and
loss of political prestige in America, no
body here doubts that the claim was
genuine, and that the representatives of
the extinct dukedom of Kingston are to
be found in the United States. The name
goes back to the Conqueror.
