The reformers did not appear at the polls to any great extent. Some new faces will appear in the Conncil Chambers, but as a rule all the succcss'ul men are ones who arc in sympathy with the present body. Familiarity apparently bred contempt in the Tote for the extension of the water works system, for tho total was only homeo pathic. About the regulation men were elected, but hardly in the regulation way, for the election was only a secondary feature in the history of yesterday in Allegheny. The flood received the most attention and made even the election officials respect it by sending tables and ballot boxes spin- I w ia Voting Under Great Difficulties. sing about the rooms. In some places the Australian ballot system pre vailed, but only through necessity. In the First, Second and Third precincts of the First ward the entire precincts were under water, and, as the polling places could not be moved outside the precincts, voting had to be done in stiffs. Going to the Polls In Boats. The old-time hustlers, with carriages, were at a disadvantage, and the man who could either row or was the owner of a boat was at a premium. The voters were rushed into boats and rowed to the First ward schoolbnuse, where the elec tions -n ere being held. Early in the day the ballot boxes were kept on the first floor, but later ere removed to the second. The judges declared their intention ol taking ballots on the roof, IT necessary. The Fourth ward, too, furnished a number of strange Incidents. In the first Ave precincts the polling places had to be chanced a number of times to escape the water.

Stuart, tho Republican Candidate for Mayor, Elected by 40,000 Majority A Small Vote Cast and Little Interest Manifested. rsPECTAt. raieuxro th DisriTcn.: Philadelphia, Feb. 17. The election to-day for Mayor and Councilmea passed off very quietly, the usual off-year vote being polled. The contest for Mayor between Edwin S. Stuart, Republican, and Albert H. Ladncr, Democrat, was lacking in spirit Returns from a majority of the wards indi cate'that the former will be elected by a majority of from 35,000 to 40,000. In the various wards, Stuart's vote shows a gain .fiver that given to h jtler, four years ago, while Ladner's is below the Democratic vote of that time. The result of the work of tbe Committee of Fifty for a new Philadelphia is a disappoint ment to its members. The committee indorsed candidates in nearly all the wards in tbe city and niado a spirited fight for their election. Notwithstanding this, abont tbe only outcome is the election of William Rodenbausen, Dem ocrat, the Republican Twentieth ward. Jauies Freeman, the present Select Councilman' from tbe Fifteenth ward, is defeated by Frank A. Gilbert. This is a victory for proeress, as Freeman foueht tho Market Street Elevated Railroad inch by inch, and succeeded in load ing it down with amcnunieaits. 'Squire McMullin barely pulls through in the Fourth ward by a majority of 162. His election will ba contested. Henry S. Moore, Republican, Is defeated in the Thirty-fourth ward. Moore resigned tbe $1,500 position in the tax offlre in order to run lor Councils, which Is without salary. From presont indications tbe political complexion of City Councils will remain about the same as at present. The friends of the Mayor-elect are jubilant over tho result. Tho streets are crowded with paraders dressed in tho fantastic costumes which are usually worn by the New Year's "shooters" to onen the New Year. The organizations which observe this custom come from tho same section as the new Mayor. MIXED AT OTIOHTO'WN. Republicans Elect tbe Burgess, but Dem ocrats Make Inroads in Councils. .J ritlAI. TILtGBAil to tux DispATcn.3 UNioxTO'Wjf, Feb. 17. The only spirited fight was over tbe election of Burgess and a Councilman in tbe Fourth ward. Indications point tq tbe election of Burgess Reed by a usual off-year Republican majority. In the Fourth ward W. C. McCormick, D . overcamo the regular Republican majority ot 0 and was elected to Council. W. E. Check, President of Councils, was defeated for re-election in tbe First ward by bis Democratic opponent, J. M. Hadden. The erection of a new school building on tbo present school grounds was the exciting topic at the polling places, although it was hardlv an issue, as all candidate! for school directors were pledged against tbo building. With the exception ot the officers mentioned it is thought the entire Republican ticket is elected. Complete returns give Reed, Republican candi date for Bnrgess. a majoritv or 40.

WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY MOST FIX THE BLAME. Stockholders of tbe Castle Khannon Railroad Company Are DEMANDING AK INVESTIGATION. Pennsylvania Company implores Eefssed an Advance In Wafes. EIGliT-HOOK 1I0TEMENT UNSETTLED The sensation expected at the annual meeting of the stockholders of the Castle Shannon Railroad Company yesterday de veloped in a very mild form, and yet with sufficient strength to convince the directors of the company that they must fix the blame for the delay in tbe completion of the new incline where it belongs. ' Ever since it was discovered that a mis take had been made in tbe construction of the machinery for the new plane, those responsible for the mistake have been able to shift the blame from one to another until it has seemed impossible for the directors to ascertain who was at fault. When the con tracts were let for it construction a sub-com mittee of three members from tbe Board of Directors, together with the engineer, took charge of the work. Plans and specifica tions were made and the work was done. Robinson, Bea & Co. built tbe machin ery, and after the plane was completed, it was found to bo impossible to operate it Some of the machinery was found to be weak and other portions of it had been placed so as to bind. Results of an Investigation. .An investigation was at once instituted, and it was found that Robinson, Bea & Co. had followed the specifications exactly, so that no blame conld rest npon the builders of -the machinery. Tbe only conclusion that could bo arrived at was that the plans bad beon incor rect, and to discover who was responsible for them being so was next on tbe programme. A gentleman closely connected with the con cern Is authority for tbe statement that at a recent meoting of the Board of Directors tho engineer and tho sub-committee were called upon to give an account of tbe matter, and that the former made a partial admission that be was resnonslDIo for the whole difficulty. This did not sitisf y tbe board, however, .as it was generally undorstood tbat the engineer had followed the suggestions of other heads, and beside, if the bliine was fixed on blm his finan cial position as such that they could not re cover the loss from blm. It was announced that the matter would be brought up at tbe stockholders' meeting jester day, and tbat some lively scenes might be looked for. but some of those who were forcing the Issue did not get to tbe meeting, andotbets who were there were satisfied with a pledge from tbe incoming Board of Directors that the matter will be sifted to tbo bottom, and at the next meoting tbe stockholders will know who is responsible for tbe mistakes and consequent delay in starting tbe new plane. Work of the Road for a Tear. The nineteenth annual report of Secretary and Treasurer E. J, Reamer was submitted as follows : "The receipts from coal show an incroase of 3,257 53 ove- business of last year. The earn ings from passengers, packages and freight show an increase of J4.85S 62 over the previous year. Your bonded debt was Increased 841,500 by, tho sale of bonds to tbat amount during the year from the new issue of 200,000. The bonds of tbe first lsine. maturing April 1, 1890, amounting to 50.000. were provided for from the sale or exchango of an equal amount of the new issue, and the old mortgage satisfied on the records. "The prospects of tho company for the coming year are very much better than for tbe past year. The gradual return to coal by tbe mills and factories has already shown a marked in crease in the sales of coal. Your new passen ger and freight plane, so long delayed in con struction, will be completed and ready to operate about March L This will add largely to tbe passenger and freight receipts. With in creased earnings in both coal and railroad de partments, and tbe opening up of several tracts of land for the sain of lots adjacentto our road, there should bo largely increased earniugs dur inc the yean "Total receipts for the year amounted to 73, 671 09, and expenditures 63.821 7L The assets of tbe company re 107.260 71, offset by liabili ties amounting to 213,141 M." Popularity of Suburban Somes. Superintendent Jahn reported that there was an increase in the number of passengers hauled over th- previous year of 66,319, show ing that the tendency of the population is to seek suburban localities for residen . purposes. There was also an Increase In receipts of about 5,000. The following ofiicers and directors were elected: President, Walter Chess; directors, Jacob Geib, L. S. McKallip, James M.Bailoy, W. II. Brunt, P. F. Sclmchman. James R. Red man, H, Dana Rolfe. Charles Zugsmlth, Jr., J. Hays Euner and J, M. Conroy. Mr. Reamer was seen after the meeting in re gard to tbe controversy over the construction of the new plane, when he said: "I am sorry this thing bas happened, but there is no uso makinc. a fuss over it now. homebody made a mistake, and the new board has promised to find out who is to blame. Tbo financial loss we have sustained is not a drop in tbe bucket compared with tho loss of time and delays ctused. Part of tbe machinery was abundantly strong and would hive worked all rlgbt, but it was set wrongand conld not work harmoniously. The big wheel was too light, and wojld have given us trouble anyway. "The new wheel was inado in Cleveland. It weighs 15 tons, and is on the way here now. As soou as it is put in, which 1 expect will be about tbe first of tbe month, we will start the plant and I think it will operate all right." BEFUSED THE ADVANCES. The Pennsylvania Company Gives Their Employes a Negative Answer. The General Grievance Committee of the Pennsylvania lines west of Pittsburg received their answer yesterday from the company relative to the list of demands made some time ago. Superintendent Starr, In his manifesto, divides the 168 articles or petitions of tbe men into three parts: First, a request for alaree and general increase in pay, and a cbange from the present basis of payment by the trip to a new basis of payment br tbe mile; second, in crease in speed of trams and rate paid for over time; third, referring to tbe government and discipline Ot employes and to tbe administra tion of tbe company's business. Mr. Starr answers all tbe demands, going into details at great length, and concludes by stylng that it would be a financial loss to the company if tbe increase' in rates and overtime were granted; that tbe present average monthly wages ot the men are in excess of thoso of 1872, when tho reductions were made, ana generally greater than those earned on other roads in tbe samo territory.

Percival Stewart, President of tbe Granite State Bulldiqc and Loan Association, made a proposition to Detective Shore yesterday to re fund the money collected in tbls city and neighborhood by tbe agents of the association on condition tbat tho police discontinue prose cution. The proposition was made at the office of Magistrate Grlpp, where Stewart had ap peared for a hearing on the same charge of conspiracy that his colleague, Egzleston, aud their agents had been tried. When the de tective consulted the City Attorney it was de cided to postpone tbe bearing until to-morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock, when tbe association expects to have its offer in practical form. Detective Shore is greatly pleased at the turn the affair bas taken. He bas worked hard on tbe prosecution of the Granite State Associa tion and has constantly encouraged tbe vic tims to hold onto their certificates, as he felt Mire the officers wonld prefer to refund the money to escape the penitentiary. A number of the many persons who had been victimized have been endeavoring to sell their certificates for anything they could get.

CAUGHT ON THE STEEJST AKD DISARMED Detective Sol Coulson, by the exercise of keen, judgment, in all probability prevented a highly .sensational shooting affair yester day afternoon. Coulson was passing a imnstore on Woeii street, when he noticed a well-dressed, hand some little woman coming out. Something in her manner attracted the detective's atten tion, and he walked into the store and asked what the woman had purchased. After some hesitation he was told tbat she had bought a 32-caliber revolver and a box of cartridges. Coulson Immediately hastened after the woman, and overtook her near the postoffice. He laid his hand upon her shonlder and asked abruptly: ''Mrs. McKain, what are you going to do with that revolver?" Ihe woman turned pale, but denied that she had a weapon. "Oh, yes, but I know yon have. Yon bought a revolver and cartridges just now, and you have them in your pocket." "Well," was the reply, "suppose I have, that is none of your business, and I will do as I like with them." Most Not Carry Concealed Weapons. "2To, but you can't," said the officer. "There is a law against ladies carrying re volvers as well ai men. You'll have to come with me to tbe Inspector's office." Mrs. McKain declined to go, saying she would cive up the revolver, but would do no more. Coulson.at ter she turned over tbe weapon. Insisted tbat she shonld accompany him, and after some parleying she consented. Tbe little i-cene was tbe resnlt of proceedings In Judge White's court yesterday mornicg. A bearing was had in tbe habea corpus case of A. J. McKain, a well-known steamboat captain, azalnst Ida. bis divorced wife, for tbe posses sion of tbeir only child, Annie, a bright and pretty little 4-year-old. McKain and his wife had not lived together for a long period previous to tho recent di vorco decision in his favor. Tho chiLd, In the mean time, bad been taken by Mrs. McKain to the borne of her father, Willliml Klrkpatrick, No. 89 Rebecca street. Allegheny, but recently the mother of the child took her to Martin's Ferry. The father went to Martin's Ferry, and upon his request tbat the child be allowed to go down street with blm until be conld get her some clothing, ho got possession of the little ono and brought it to rbls citv, where he kept it at bis boarding bouse on Carson street. Soon afterward tbe divorce suit came up In court, and tbe testimony against Mrs. McKjin's char acter being of a very damaging nature be bad no trouble in securing a decree. Fighting for the Child. At tbe conclusion of the trial, which was marked with sensational features, Mrs, McKain claimed possession of tbe child, alleging that an agreement with her husband provided teat if she made no defense in tbe trial the child should go to her. The little one was given to her, and the husband entered, habeas corpus proceedings to recover bor, on the ground tbat the mother, as shown by tbo trial, was not a lit person to bare the child, and tbat be. being In a position to clothe and educate the child, should be allowtd control of her. Tbe tale of marital infelicity had just been related to the courc yesterday morning, when a Datbetlc scene occurred. Judge White bad taken tbe prattling little girl up on tho bench beside blm. When the lawyers had concluded be turned to tbe child and asked In a kindly way: "Annie, which would yon like to do. go and live with your papa,yourmammaoryour grand papa!" The little one hesitated a moment he Tore an swering, and then looking up into the venera ble face of the Judge, simply said: "Papa." That'j my opinion exactly," answered the Court, and an order was made at once turning the little ono over to the father's care. A Sensational Scene In Court. Mrs. McKain bad stood wlthont the railing smiling and beckoning to her little one. buc wben she beard tbe decision of tbe Court she ) ourscoawu irauiic cries mat sne was being robbed of her darling. Captain McKain at once took tbe child up in his arms and was making bis way through tbe crowd to tbe door whon the mother ran up and, throwing her arms around ber, hugged and kissed tbe little one. weeping bitterly all tbe while and calling-npon the child to think of her and love ber alwav.". The Captain Anally succeeded in freeing him self and left the building with the child in b arms, prattling and talking, all unconscious of the real nature of tbe scene she bad just passed throngb. Mrs. McKain remained awhile with her parents and friends, and left tbe building with them. It is not known whether she returned to Allegheny with them or not. but It was not long before 3 o'clock when sbe was seen Dy Detective Coulson coming out of the gun store, pale-faced and resolute. Inspector McAleese talked to beratbls office, and while she would not admit what ber real intentions were, the inspector is satisfied from ber excited language and nervou actions that sbe bad planned t follow Captain McKain to bis hoarding house and kill him and possibly the child, and then berself. Sheoould not ex plain why she was going toward tbe Southslde, where the captain boards, when tho detective had caught ber, although sho denied sbe had any intention of shooting him. In a number of other instances ber statements did not agree with her actions, but alter talking to tho In spector for awhile, tbe unfortunate woman calmed down and begged tbat she be allowed to go home. After exacting a promise that sbe would not in any way molest Captain McKain or the child, and that she would not make any rash attempt upon herself, tbe inspector al lowed her to go.

Kleber & Bro. sell half a dozen pianos and organs for every one sold by the other music deal ers. The reason is simply because they keep none but the very best instruments none but what we have thoroughly tried for more than a generation, and which are fully war ranted lor eight years. In no music store in the entire country can be found such a magnificent variety of pianos as at Klebers. For instance, the great Steinway aud the famous Conover pianos the stan dard makers of the world. Then, the won derful Opera pianos, whose newly-invented angel echo pedal, a third pedal, are creating quite asensatiou wherever they are known. Xothinz can compare with them for rich ness, volume nnd sweetucss of tone and im- i mense durability except tne oiemway and the Conover. Thousands of Opera pianos have been sold in Pittsburg and vicinity, and all that have bought them bring their friends to Klebers' store and urge them to buy an Opera. The extremely reasonable price at which tbey are sold, and the easy time pay ments given, make the Opera by-all odds the most desirable piano for the great mass of the people. Klebers' store Is 506 Wood street Isoir City beer is uniformly excellent. None but the perfect article is allowed to leave that brewery. Ask for it at your dealers.

The Duquesno Traction Power House at Ben Venae Damaged to the Extent of 8100,000 Machinery Ruined, and Hot Covered by Insurance. The Duquesne Traction power bouse at Ben Venue with its machinery was damaged last night to the extent of $100,000 by fire. It is Jthought tbat the fire engines and dynamos are so badly injured tbat tbey can't be repaired and must be replaced with new ma chinery. The fire broke ont about 1120 in the base menvwbere alot of lumber and some of tbe en gines wero located. The firemen bad great difficulty In getting at. tbe blaxe, and It was some time before a stream of water could be turned on tbe flames. Tbe Are oon gained control of tbe basement and spread to other parts of tbe building, in cluding tbe boiltr hoose. Tbe Inmber in the cellar burned fiercely, and it was not until near 2 o'clock this morning be fore the flames were subdued, ft was found tben that almost all of tbe machinery and dyn amos were nearly ruined, and tbe main build ing scorched very badly. The bulldlne Is a brick one with stone trimmings, and is 120x50 feet. Tbe origin of tbe fire was caused by tbe ex- STosion of a lamp in the basement. One of the remen was filling a lamp with Rasollne. Tbe oil caught tire from tho flame of an other lamp, and an explosion was tbe result. The firemen attempted to ex tinguish tbe lire, but found it impossible and immediately had tbe alarm sent in. Superintendent Rice, of the Duquesne Trac tion Company, was present at tbe fire. He stated tbat the loss 'would fall little short of J1C0.C00, and was covered by no insurance. He said tho principalloss wonld be on tbe machin ery. Tbe road, he added, would have been ready to operate by March I. but tbe fire wonld cause a delay of at least 90 days. A test of the machinery was made on Monday last, and gave pjrtect satisfaction.
