The electlon was for Mayor, Etoceiver of Tazea.
Councllmen, poUce magtotimtesand Bchool dlrect?

elected th.'ir . andldatefl for Mayor and Receiver
of Taxes hv a greater majorlty than was ever
glv.-n to sitnllinr offlceri upon local Issues. The

nmns ..f matter purpi rtlng to show that durlng
his recenl term as Oovernor he used that ofllce
to further ln th-- m-.st partisan manner the ln
tereatfl of the Democratlc party.
Mr. Warwlok. in his letter of accepUnce, and
I repeatedly from tbe pUtform, denled the
j chargea <<r the Democratlc papera that he was

elected, he would admlnieter the offlce of Mayor
for the best Int.'testK of the city of Philadel?

[BT TEI.EORAHI TO THB TRIBL'N'E.]
Albany. Feb. 19.?The year 1890 wlll ln all proba*
hlllty be the nvtst memorable ln the hirtory of
Thomaa C Platt's eventful llfe. It has wltne?*ed
the climax of hls polltlcal eareer; unless all algna
fall it will bchold hla irretrlevabl* downfall. It
has seen him attain to heights aeldom. If ever be?
fore, held by any maehine politldan. It has *een
hlm in absolute control of an a.v.-rwhelmlngly Re?
publican Leglslature. in practlcal control of the
enilre State patronage. and ln apparent control of
the Chlef Exacvtfva of thls Imperlal Common
irealth. It has *e.>n hlm bowed down to at the
Btate Capitol and tiaatafd wlth a deferenee not
usually shown outslde royal courts. It has *een
hlm saluted as the Dictator Of the Republican
party. as the power behind the throne, the real
ruler of the State Oovernment and one of the
moal iM.tent forces ln the comlng Natlonal Con
ventl.n for ihe nomination of a Presidential can
dldate.
Leaa than thlrty days ago he visited thls clty
as the Bjueet of the r.ov.tnor. He ls a prlvate
liti/.'-n, a plain business man. but he was greeted
like a king. The abj ?-t manner In whi'h h.'
araa approached is almoat anpreoedented in the
hiatory cf Amerlcan poHttca. Certalnly there is
nothlng lik.* lt in the annah. of New-York. "As
he a*ame a.ut of th? elevator," aays a veradous
chronlder a.f th.- oeeaal ?, "into the eairrldor
leadtng to the Bxecutlva Chamber a groiip of
pollticlana gathered around hlm with umov
erod heada and aralted, aimost stooplng. ln a
sa.mi-.ircle In front of him. while he stood erect,
lauichlng and ghikinu hands, hls glog-y nat shin
Ing as it new. Several bys'tnders noticed the
homaga Of the p.dltioians to the leader, and It
made a profoutld lmpression upon th. m. Thls is
Just h'.w Mr. Platt was treated. and If he had
deetfed lt the same crowd that bowed and
amlrked to him would hav..* grovellM In the dust
at hls f'-et."
