Jim Monihon is Queen o' the May.
A majority of the voters of Phoenix
yesterday danced around the May pole
and crowned him with garlands of success.
He was elected Republican mayor by
the heaviest vote ever cast and received
a larger majority than any Democratic
candidate was ever given even in the
the palmiest days of Phoenix Democracy.
Not onlv was Mr. Monihon'e election
overwhelming, but every candidate on
the ticket was ushered in by comfort
able and satisfactory majorities.
For the first time since the founding
of the city it is in the hands of the Re
publicans. Under the new organiza
tion the council will consist of three
Republican members beside the mayor.
Of the two hold-over members, Messrs.
Lacy and Goldberg, Mr. Lacy is a Republican.
The newly created office of assesso
and tax collector was created expressly
for a Republican, and a Republican
elected as such is city treasurer. The
new marshal is the first, other than a
Democrat, tbat ever kept peace and
order in Phoenix.
The tun rose yesterday morning on
anxious and expectant friends of the
two sets of candidates. All agreed tbat
the vote would be close, and many telt
that the result was painfully in doubt.
There was no excitement, bat there was
a deep intensity of interest. Before noon
more than half the registered vote had
been polled, and at 4 o'clock the uncast
vote was cat down to less than two
At 2 o'clock Democratic stock began
to look up and Republicans became ap
prehensive. Kellner's was said to lead
by a majority of 53, though what basis
the estimate had was not understood.
For an hour the Democrats claimed
everything. At 3 o'clock they con
ceded the probable defeat of Ming for
treasurer and Thoman for marshal,
but the bases of their claims
and concessions were equally vague.
. Republicans claimed nothing, con
ceded nothing, but steadily continued
in the business of getting out voters.
It was feared, though, that the major
ity of 150 claimed by The Republican
would be greatly reduced if not entirely
wiped out when it was discovered that
many workingmen were engaged so far
from the city as to make their presence
Both sides had chartered every public
vehicle in town and adorned it with
placards and streamers. These were
kept busy from early in the morning
making things easy for voters. Late in
the afternoon the Republicans began
bringing in their voters who were em
ployed without the city within a con
venient distance. So industrious were
the efforts of both parties that when the
polls closed the vote on the heads of
the tickets showed that of the registered
vote of 766, all had been cast but 144
votes. Rejected and defective ballots
cut the number down further,
The fight opened like a battle and
quickly centered about the second ward
where the contest between Lewis and
McJieill for the council was in progress.
This ward had been carefully canvassed
and was found to be on the face of the
canvass slightly Democratic. The Dem
ocrats here inaugurated a system of
challenging which was afterwards
adopted in the other wards. Mr. Mc
Neill himself supervised the challeng
ing and nearly every voter was com
pelled to ran a disagreeable gauntlet
This mode of Democratic warfare con
sumed so much time and threatened to
become so em barrassingthat Judge Is
rael of the Republican central committee
procured an arrangement by which the
contested votes might be submitted to
a supplemental c anvasa. The votes at
lti bep-an to fall more slowly, lifce the
last shots of a battle, and at sundown
Even now the Democrats were confi
dently claiming everything. The third
ward was counted upon to make Re
publican disaster overwhelming.
While the preliminary count of the
ballots in this ward was going on, word
was brought from the second ward that
the first thirty ballots gave Monihon a
majority of ten. This was dampening
bat the mighty third was depended
upon to make things right. Upon the
heels of this distressing information
from the second ward, a report came
from the first that Monihon was lead
ing. Similar intelligence arrived from
the fourth, but still the third was ex
pected to save the day.
At the beginning of the count Demo
cratic hope vanished, and this strong
hold of Democracy was found to have
been in a greater degree contributorv
to the land slide than any other ward
The vote, subject to a revision, which
can have no other effect then to increase
the majority, since a large number of
the ballots in dispute, but not counted
were Republicans, is as follows :
promptu ratificatioa. All the city bands
were procured, and every torch avail
able was brought into service. A long
and loud procession was formed, and a
halting place was made at a hastily
constructed bonfire, at the corner of
Center and Washington streets. From
there the procession marched to Moni
hon block, in front of which another
bonfire was blazing. After brief
peeches by Judge Israel of the central
committee and Mayor Monihon, the
residences of the successful candidates
were visited in turn.'
Late at night the enthusiasts as
sembled in front of The Republican
office and concluded the organized
Until early this morning the streets
resounded with cheers for Monihon and
the successful ticket.
Thus was Phcenix won.

' Mesa's May Day.
The May Day festivities at this 'place
yesterday was one of the events that
will live "in the memories of the young
people that were present, either as
spectators or participants, for many
day. The program as published in The
Republican was carried out to the let
ter. But the scene and coronation
ceremonies as conducted by the four
teen pretty and bright girls was
picture of which it can truly be said
brought to the minds eye an enchanting
view into fairy land. The arbor under
which the ceremonies were conducted
nd particularly the space set apart for
the throne was a veritable bower of
flowers. Para Kimball was arrayed in
white, her dress bedecked with carna
tion roses. Her maids of honor wore
wreaths on their heads and all being
about the same size thev escorted thei
choice for queen to the throne. Music,
vocal and instrumental, prayer by the
chaplain and an interesting address by
editor W. D. Morton followed.
Col. Morton made a i!:ost happy hit
by relating the Etory of the Roman
matron who was reputed to have had
rich, rare and precious gems of untold
value. How a Koman senator oi re
nown was desirous of looking at the
lady's jewels, of which he had heard so
much, tie called upon ner ana statea
An analsiB of the vote shows, among
other things, that Hickey, as was ex
pected from the beginning, was the
enemy's strongest candidate. He ran
ahead of of his ticket in every ward,
and was the only man who was given a
majority in any ward.
Thoman failed to develop the strength
expected in the first and fourth wards,
but gained a rather surprising lead over
the head of the ticket in the third.
The majority of Moss in the fourth
went beyond the calculations of bis
friends. The ward was known to be
barely Republican, and Reed is a man
of great personal popularity, so that
his defeat bv a majoritv, two-thirds
as large as his vote, was an overwhelm
