CHICAGO, April 6. The hottest city cam
paign for years and one notable for irs
in discriminate mud-throwing, ended yes
terday in a personal triumph that Carter
Harrison has a right to be proud of and
probably is doing the subject justice in that
line. As when he ran some years ago
nearly the ' whole city press was against
bin. but this time he had a paper of his
own The Times which he did not have
before. The Hi-rald was away in front in
personal attacks on the Democratic can
didate; The Tribune, Inter-Ocean, News
and Record were nil at work for Sam Al
ienor., and .only the Mail, Dispatch and
Globe supfirted Harrison.
frets a Ilnralitr of 20,000.
The result is the election of l'arrison for
mayor by "plurality that will probably
reach 30,000. At lite reports it was over
l'.t,0GO with only twenty precincts to hear
from. With the head of the ticket the whole
list of Democratic ifominees probably goes
into office, but majorities are not known
yet. Cregier, who bolted the Democratic
convention a:id ran on a labor ticket, gets
about 5,000 votes as it lioks at this writing.
There was ictense interest and excitement.
Early last evening crowds as great as those
at a presidential election gathered in front
of the newspaper offices to see the returns.
When Harrison's election was known the
Democrats paraded the streets for hoars
cheering the elect, while a crowd of several
thousands collected in front of The Times
office. A bonfire was built, red fire
burned and a general jollification held.

CLEAN SWEEP AT KANSAS CITY.
Republicans Also Hold tbe Election
Kansas State Mostly.
Jvaxsas Cttt, Kas., April ,S (ireat ex
citement attended tbe municipal election
in this city yesterday and a vote of over 9,
000 a very full one was cast. The feat
ures which, lent special interest to the con
test was tbe unusually large registration
of women and the fact that a woman candi
date for mayor was in the field. Tbe result
of the election was the most sweeping vic
tory ever scored in the city by Republicans,
Barnes, toe candidate for mayor, receiving
a majority of nearly a thousand votes, the
Whole ticket being elected by large mar
gins. Republicans also elected five of the
six council men.
Mrs. Potter Wasn't "In It."
The women turned out en masse to cast
their ballots,' but. .strange as it may seem
they did not cast their votes for Mrs. Pot
ter, the woman candidate, Mrs. Potter
received only ttbout fifty votes all told
and of those not more than five were cast,
by women. It is estimated that 3,800
women, or 65 per cent, of those registered,
east their ballots, they casting a much
larger percentage of their registered vote
wan did the men.
elections In Kansas Stats.
Returns from many cities and towns
throughout Kansas show that the Repub
licans have swept everything where party
lnes were drawn, which was the case in
most of the principal towns. In Topeka
there were four tickets in tbe field and the
Straight Republican ticket had a majority
ever all others. In Leavenworth the Re
publicans elected Samuel Dodsworth
mayor and a majority of the council. This
Is the first Republi can mayor in Leaven
worth in thirteen years. Wichita was car
ried by the Republicans after a hot fight
over the fusion Democratic and Populist
ticket. Reports from Emporia, Ottawa,
Fort Scott. Council Grove, Fred on La, Rus
sell, Atchison, Wellington, Winfleld and Ar

straight Republican ticket was chosen by
Urge majorities. .
Double Their Majority at Wichita.
At Wichita the- Republicans gained a
great victory, electing their candidates by
double the majority ever given for a Re
publican. The town is Governor Lewd

tion was the issue.

ST. Loris, April 5. The returns show

Republicans have bagged about everything

but yesterday it cast 854 votes for Wal

turns from the state rbow a very general
Democratic victory in nearly all cities, with
a few scattering People's party gains. Dis

that Jefferson City went Republican ex

MORE LAW FOR COMBINATIONS.
A Pittsburg Judge Makes Some Impor
Pittsburg, April 5. H. R. Barnes, Wil
liam Van and John Carr, members of the
builders' exchange, have been found guilty
of conspiracy in tbe case brought against
them by Thomas Buchanan. L. T. Goer
was discharged. Judge White in giving
his decision said: "The builders ex
change or bricklayers' union or any other
organization that undertakes arbitrarily
to say that no man shall come in without
their consent, or no man shall follow a
vocation or trade or business without
their consent, is absolute tyranny and
against public policy. All such combina
tions are unlawful and injurious to society,
Coercion Expressly Prohibited.
'Now, there is an impression on the part
of some persons that, under act of assembly,
laborers and others have a right to com
bine and go out on a strike; that it is law
that there is an act of assembly
ful; sauctioning it. There was an
act passed on this subject in 1872,
which perhaps was an improvident piece
of legislation and a pandering to an im
proper sentiment m the country, but un
der it they cannot coerce other men that
want to work and compel them to go
out. The act expressiy prohibits that.
They cannot interfere with others who are
willing to work.
The Vnlawfal Combine Defined.
"Any organization or combination of two
or more persons to xorce up or to xoroe
down wages and to coerce unwillingly the
laborers to comply with the rules and
regulations adopted to accomplish the pro
posed order is unlawful. Any organization
of two or more persons to obtain a mo
nopoly of any trade or business by refus
ing to deal with persons not members of
the organisation or combination, prevent
ing other persons from dealing with them.
and by other means attempting to crush
out all competition, is unlawful."
HE GOES BACK ON ROACH.
Ex-Governor Ordway, of North Dakota,
Cteates a Sensation.
Grand Forks, N. D., April &. Ex-Gov
ernor A. U. uraway createa a sensauon
yesterday by his remarks regarding Sena

N. Roach for years," said be. "I was on
the ground when arrangements were made
to unite on him for senator. Not a single
member of the North Dakota legislature
knew his record. If it had been suspected
Roach could not have received a vote."
Trouble Abend for the Senator.
The Republican senators intend to pur
sue the investigation. They intend to as
certain what Roach did with the monev
which he embezzled in Washington. They
think it was planted and had something to

Paris, Aprils. At 11. -40 yesterday morn
ing the Anglo-American arbitration court
met and entered upon the real business
that called it together. There was no de
lay in the proceedings; both parties to the
arbitration were "loaded" for seals pre
sumably and Sir Richard Web
ster opened the engagement by
putting in an interlocutory question con
cerning the right of England to adduce a
series ot fresh arguments subsequent to
the presentation of the memorandum in
which both bides set forth their views. Mr.
Carter, on behalf of the American commis
sion, opposed the desire of the English
Sir Charles Russell, acting on behalf
of the British government, asked that
the report be presented which was furnish
ed to the American government by Sir
Henry Eliott in Octolier, 1S90. Sir Richard
Webster supported this "request. The re
port is, according to the petitioners, only
known to the public by newspaper extracts
from it. It is claimed that the United States
has always kept back the contents becau.se
the document is capable of being inter
preted against them.
Phelps Makes a Concession.
Russell based his demand on article
4 of the arbitration treaty, which gives the
parties to the litigation the right to call
for the production of all documents likely
to bo useful in the deliberations. Phelps
denied that tbe report was referred to in the
American case. He said that it was sim
ply referred to in the counter case, to
which article 4 of the treaty did not refer.
Phelps further denied that it was admissi
ble in law that one party should have the
power to force an adversary to produce any
document simply because the adversary
desired to use it in evidence.
The refusal of the United States to pro
duce the document was not due to any de
sire to suppress the report, but to the fact
that it wn applied for too late for the
American government to prepare its an
swer to t he argumentts that might possi
bly be based upon it. Nevertheless he
would produce the report, as he did not
wish to engender the suspicion of a desire
to suppress evidence, but after this conces
sion be would decline to produce any
Rnssel Sticks to This Point.
Russell briefly contended that the report
was referred to in the appendix, and the
appendix was referred to in the case suffi
ciently to invoke article 4 of the treaty.
The court then took recess. After the
recess Carter, for the United States, sub
mitted for consideration a motion that the
