Chicaoo, April 6. The city election yes
terday passed off quietly and the new elec
tiou luw worked smoothly and to the sat
isfaction of the polit icians, as well as to
the election commissioners. For one thing
it demonstrated that it affords ample fa
cilities to the voters to retire to oliscurity
Objectionable candidates no matter how
humerously they might be nominated by
con ve-t ions The result was the election
of lit'teen straight Republicans to the coun
cil; six straight Democrats; four Repub
lican and Trade and Labor; five Demo
cratic and Trade and Labor; two inde
pendents; one Independent Democrat, and
one called Democratic-Republican.
F.d Cullerton Beaten.
The feature of the day was the defeat of 1
Edward F. Cullerton, who had Lis name j
printed o three places on the ticket and I
and was tlie candidate of the Democrats, j
the Republicans and the Labor party. He
made a desperate fight, but the voters
knocked him out. His opponent is an
obscure citizen, whose name was not very
prominently mentioned during the cam
paign. The contest was not really be
tween Cullerton and Kohde, but letween
the Cullerton and anti-Cullerton element
of the ward, and the latter triumphed,
A nut her Noted Alderman Left,
Edward V. Kurke, of the Sixth ward, is an
other of the well-known alrlermt n who came
to grief. Like Cullerton, he made a deter
mined fight for re-election. Alderman D. B.
O'Brien, of the Twenty-third ward, who be-t
week was indicted by the grand jury, also fell
a victim to the ballots of the citizens. But
Kotk, the alderman who ''informed" on the
alleged iKKidiers, met exactly the same fate and
was retired by his constituents.

ANTI-HILL MEETING AT BUFFALO.
Ex-Secretary Fairchild Speaks to a Large
Buffalo, April 6. A large and enthusi
astic meeting of anti-Hill Democrats was
held in Music hall last night. The great
hall was packed.
It had been announced that there would be
no procession ; or fire works, but nearly 2,w
men from hast ily organized clubs and headed
by the Cleveland Democracy, escorted the
Sieakers, ex-Secretary Fairchild and ex-Mayor
William R. Oraee, of New York, from their
hotels to the new hall Among the mottoes
on the transparencies were: 'Hill's Not In It."
"No (S Cent' Dollars For Vs." Cleveland's
name was on most of the transparencies.
The Resolution on Hill.
Resolutions were adopted disclaiming and
repudiating a Sesire-or intention to disrupt the
Democracy anil declaring that "whatever may
have been the estimation in which Senaior
ii dl has been held in the past by the Democrats
of this state, i,t is now evident that the course
that he has pursued with reference to the vital
issues of turin reform and honest money; his
unscrupulous polit cal methods in this state

graopful efforts to obtain the presidential
nomination add his continued and contemptu

from his support nine-tenths of the Demo

or the nomination of any man supposed to be
subject to his Influence or control, would re

tional ticket in the state.
Kxtrmct from Fairehlld'e Remarks,
. The principal speaker was ex-Secretary Fair
child, but siieeches were made by ex-Mayor
Gra-e, of NeW York, and Frank M. Thome.
Fairchild said in the course of his speech:
"We are told that our contesting" delegation
will render impossible the nomination ot a fa
vorite candidate because it will show such a
division in the party aa will make it dangerous
to nominate anybody from our state. Why
of Who proposes to bolt the nomination?
Who proposes ' not to abide by the action of
the national convention? Surely the great or
ganisations of the party in our large cities do
not make any suc'h threat. They declare that
they will support one candidate aa loyally aa

County and City Official Have a Clah.
Early in the morning partisan politics were
thrown to the winds, and from almost the
very outset the battle of ballots was dominat
ed by factional strife. So alarming did: the
situation become that a reauest for official
protection was made of SheriH Bennett, a
prominent AnieCtcan i Protective association
man, who responded by sending thirty-live
deputies to the scene of hostilities. Their
presence seemed to inlensif y the feeling, and a
clash occurred between the sheriff's torce and
Mayor Sloane, who contended that the county
officials had no business there. ' ' j

One of them arrested a man peddling at one
of the polling places contrary to the provision!
of the ballot law, In an instant the deputy and
prisoner were the center of an excited throng,
and prompt action by the deputies was- nece
sary to prevent serious trouble. Sheriff Ben
nett then went to South Omaha to take chargf
of affairs personall .-. A conference with Mayoi
Sloane re-ulted In the withdrawal of the dep
dty sheriffs. Several tighta occurred up to the
time the polls closed.
