Chicago Tribune: t'uiloubtrdly a aiiii Jorlty of the voters of Chicago prefer nnltomst uinl ellleleut iiuiulelpal gov criimcm to one w bleb N corrupt and In oillcletn. TJiey are pleased with the io I'm ins which have been wrought during lliel.ixl twoje.irs and would like to see further prujiress In the t,uiio dlrirtlon. CliliMii b:iv n heavy majority for the elvll-seivlee law when It was mIi. uiltted to theiKipular vote. If that law wen to be siiluultted nir.iln, after the people have een .for two ye.iis how It winks, nti oxefwheliulin: majority of the otes .ist would 1e 111 Its fit. or. Two yenis u'jo the niictlou iiltuilt- ted to tin voters was whether the In Unite mid tiupt.ikuhle I'orruptloti of tin last Deiu.ier.itle elty nilinlnlslr.itloit should be eontliiuetl for two years more. The people decided by u liuijoi lly of lii.imo that they did not Intend to ulhw u Tammany Hall to be built up In Chle.iuo to rule the elty. A majority of the people are of Hie same opinion still. They do not waul ii return of the vile municipal condi tions which existed two yen is u;io. They do not hanker after (duffed pay rolls or a police force which Is cilm Inally active at the primaries ami on election days, mid Is criminally luac tlvothc test of the time. Xor will they ever be planned with tlunc evils ucnlti If they stick together. Ttiltcil we stand, divided we fall." If those 4'lilc.ii;oaus -who prefer u de cent to u "wide-open" city jioveriimcnt forget Unit, they may be visited by feme very unpleasant thoituhts the day ufter election. How will they feel -a week from lo day If the eiecthiu returns show -tlint by spllttliin up their votes they have put Tammany Hull in power twilii and b.i vehandi d over the control of the city Kovcriuuctit to the unclean siiiif that was driven out of otlhv lu 1N5V Then they will repent, when repent nine will be too late. Then those wla'i have thrown uwu' votes which, had they been cast wisely, would have de feated the candidate who represents nil the bad elements In the community will be tilled with shuttle uud humilia tion. They will see thut they slimed nifiilust the llj-'lit when they I ejected the piod udvlce kIvcii t hem. There Is no division of sentiment mining the wiiid-heelei'H uud bummers, who look on llurrlsoti us the advance nueiit of their prosperity. They are not Kolnjr to scatter their voles on Im possible candidates. They want lo plunder the city uud Ihey know they cannot do It unless Harrison Is elected. Tlie determination of these men to win is shown by the despeuile. leek less elVorls they are making now lo keep lu the registry Itookx the shoals of Illegal voters whose nanies they have put there. They have pithered In the tramps of the Northwest, uud In tend to use them to foist themselves on the pay-rolls. If these creatures do win by bclnc united while their opponents are di vided, the last state of Chicago will be worse than the llrst. If "the pnif;" cairlcs the day all Us members, who have been starving for the Inst two years, will have Insatiable uppetltes. Xo civil service law will withstand t.lieiu. It will p, iiIoiik with every other leforiu that has been made since April of IMi.". There will be seven unclean splills lu the "swept uud curulshcd" house for every one thai was there mi ller the last Democratic administra tion. There are evil days lu store for Chi caiio If Tammany Hall Is kIvcii anoth er lease of life. If It comes Into power next Tuesday It cannot be expelled for two years. A day's folly will entail twenty-four mouths of useless regret. Therefore, those who really want piod government must close up their ranks. They must unite on the only candidate who inn be elected over Harrison. They must drop lleslui; uud Harlan, whose presence In this cam palun weakens the cause they profess to have ut heart, and unite on Judire Sears. When they do that victory will Ih theirs and ood Kovernment In Chi- cup) will be perpetuated. THE CHICAGO TOWN TICKETS. There Is always danger that the city ciiiiipnlKii will so fur overshadow the town campaign as to make the jn'ople iiudeivstlmiite the Importance of the town elections. There are, besides tin constables, four town oltleers to elect lu each of tbe seven towns within the limits of Chicago, or twcuty-cljtht lu nil. The cniupiilKti Is now far ad vanced, nud it Is worthy of special trite that not one of the twetily-elKht candi dates of the Republican party has been the subject of peiMiiial criticism, not to say censure. It Is true u self-appointed keeper of the people's political con science has expectorated lu u pueial way iikiiIusi nil asxessors, uud tried to Klve vitality to Mime Independent nomi nations of Its own devlsliiB, but when It comes rluht down to straight and holiest politics even the supporters of other candidates me obliged to ailtull. by Inillicctlon. of each one of the (wen-ty-eluhi. "I find no I'uiill lu this man." Tlie attempt nt special opposition Is really contlned lo tbe three original Chlcapi towns, the North, South mid West Sides, to name them l.i older of their settlement uud iu rcci.ul of the order of their population. 'I no win bianco of u flKlit was put up In Hyde Park, but that did not amount to an I him;. North Town Republicans tire count tun on their splendid candidate for 'oh lector to pull their ticket through by a handsome majority. The nomination for Cnllectnrshlp wus jrlvcii to Frank M. Blair, one of the most popular Re publicans on the North Side, as has been repeatedly proven lit elections. The camlldnte for supervlso is A. II. Halureii, u worthy represenlutlvi' or the Scandinavians, uud for clerk Muthhis J. Illbbeler, a tieriiiau-Aiuer-lean or paid standing, Mr. Jinues J, Cray, tbe Democratic candidate for As sessor, is very popular and strong. This ticket adds strength lo the elty j ticket, ami Is above attack on any side. On the West Side the uoiiiluiitlou of that well-known uud popular youim business man, Mr. .Iiiiuch Kcddlck, merits the approbation of nil lovers or piod piveiuuieiit nud It N believed that the Republican West Town ticket will win by u handsome maloilty, Eviry property holder lu .he West Town should turn lu nud do nil he can to elect the followlm; ticket: Ascor. Jinues llcddlck: Collector. J. P. Ste pltia: Supervisor, Ernest Wledel: Cleik. Jumes Ahern. No Heinoerat. even, has nuythliii: to sny iijjnlnsi thein. anil tbeie Is unconceivable reason why any ltepitblleau should withhold his sup port from them. But the meatest contrast lu tickets I presented by the South Sale. The l'uinociucy put up for Ass sor one It. ('. ftiitiultii:, of whom It Is eueimh to point to his indictment leiotd. printed in full In the Chicago dallies several days ai;o. The Uepubllcini ticket In beaded by the present South Town As sessor, .lolin w. Hepb-.irii. EU'iy tax payer of last your knows what lo ex pect from Mr. Il-'plmin. UN recnid Is the best possible nrniiiaciit in favor of his re-elect Ion. Nor will tin oe for him be coiitlued by any means to Republicans. Every voter with n plec e of jirotind or other taxabb property In the town Is Interested lu bavin uu Assessor re-elected who will treat him fairly, nud who has no use for "graft ers." POSTMASTER GORDON. The books of the postolllcc under Washington Hcslnu's adniinlsttatlou were closed nt 0 o'clock Wednesday eveiilnir. mul the books under the ad ministration of Postmaster Charles P, (billion weie opened. .Mr. Cordon urrlved a few moments later, nccoinpanled by several friends, uud .Mr. Heslm: put In mi appearance at 0:.'ln o'clock. Then came Hie ad vance Kim id of the superintendents of departments, stations, stib-stailoiis, uud branch poslolUces, with their re ports of the balances on hand ut the close of the day. It was after 10 o'clock when the cash ier's division was cheeked up. The statement was: Cash R 7,'WKMi Piwinu'e slumps LHWi.tui." Postal cards iL'.tHHi Stamped envelopes 0I.IP2 Newspaper and periodical stamps 41.201 Overdue posture stamps 12,::ot Total ?54S.4:iS The money order division lidded Slit,.

All of the IMI employes, with but one exception, and olllelals who have to do with the liaudllUK of funds and slumps, have made their new bonds, ritimlwj: to the new postmaster. Sup!. J. M. Oiilulau. of SiMiloii .1. was-unablc to have his bondsmen meet ut the post ollice, nud he wus suspended by Mr. lleslui; until his bond wus made, which was done Thursday. The new cashier, Charles A. Ilanuii. Is not u relative of Pulled Slates Sen ator llatiua. It was midnight when the checking up of the cashier's and money order divisions was completed and the cash and stamps found to lie correct. Mr. Cordon then receipted to Mr. lleslui: for the supplies uud eiiilpmeuts of the various dlvMnus and stations, uud ac knowledged to Inspector Stuart the possession of tlie same, and he became Invested with the rluht uud title or Postmaster of Chlenp. GRAND CONCERT FOR ST. VINCENT'S NEW CHURCH. A Brand concert will be bIvcii on Easier Monday evculnj;. Apill 10, 1S07, at the new St. Vincent's Church, cor ner Shellleld uud Webster inclines, the proceeds lo be applied on fiirnlshlni: uud decoration of the new edlllce.

A urn ml program Is lu course of preparation, uud when the list of those who will participate Is complete, will be distributed anioni; the parishioners. The new pews are nil lu the church uud the stained itlass windows will be lu for this occasion, mid the electric llitht Illumination will be complete III every detull. The ns sitrauce that the concert! will ben rcat musical treat under such iiuiuap'iueiit, uud ns this will be the last occasion lu which secular music may be beard In Hie (till ml edlllce, the worthy object, the pa nil slp"it, the p'orlous music, should till St. Vincent's to Its utmost capacity. WHY WE ARE TOR SEARS. Tim Enp"e Is for Sears because the peat Curler II. Harrison (father or the kid now runiiliii; on the Democratic ticket) udvlsed The Eai;lc to always oppose u candidate for Mayor who favored wide-open pimblltiB lu Chi cap. Iu accordance with this udvlce The Kncli helped Carter II. Harrison the peat when he rail Independent upiiiist Wide-Open Crep'er ill 1S01, uud thereby elected n Republican Mayor. Iliiriisou the (ireat nlwuys pre rerred Republican Mayors to Demo emtio Mayors who permitted or prom iM'd In penult wide-open pinibllni;. Tbe Eap always followed Curler's the Croat advice uud also foup"it for blm lu (very assault that hu made on corrupt Democratic machines. That Is tbe reason why The Eagle Is opposed to Carter Uu Less. It followed his father so loin; that It caunot p't used to the new nssoclates of Carter the Less. ALD. MALI BY1 S CANDIDACY. It Is iiufoiiuuate, iu some respects. that by brace primaries and p'liernl ma chine rejiulaiitles Aid. Multhy of the Tweiuy-seeond Ward was not placed lu reptlar nomination In recopilthui of ids valuable services iu the Council, when, with -Aid. Haiiaii, he pive the citizens of that ward a repreM'iilaliou of wirloli the decent element of the city Is Justly proud. As it Is, hi.'ivover, Aid. Mul.hy's name stands on the ticket by petlthu. and probably thl.s Is just as well. He Is uiiicb too piod a citizen and uldei ir.'.iu for machine politics, whether Deuiocr.itle or Republican, and it Is p'atiryltu to know that the ib cent citizens of that w.ud an rallying to his support. Tlie redemption of the City Council can be effected only by the lutellliceiit. decent citizens iKiiorlmr the deni'.tnds of paily uud seiidliic to the City Council .eau. honest, able men, As for expecting Hie machine politicians to 'have npird Tor any oth er Inleicst than the machine, it very brief aeiiualutaiice with ward polities Is sulllelcnt ito dispel .such an Illusion, The remedy placed lu the people's hands by petition, however. Is one that can only be effective when sustained by the intelllneiit voters of both parties. The decent citizens of the Twenty-second Wnrd should send Aid. Maltby back o tbe Council lo continue the tlKlit which lt him the favor of the "boodlers" uud rliijfHters. Record. THE KID'STLECWN WILL RE DUCE THE CITY'S REVENUE. The election or Carter Harrison Jun ior Is jioImk lo cost the city of ChlenBo .si.wo.l'On lu license money. It Is ucknowleiljied that the openlnc of all the down-town namhliu;r (.'nines, which Hartison piomlcs. together with u pimblliiB ntlachment to every saloon down town, will dose 'J.onu sa loons In I he oiitlylm; districts. This menus a falllnu' nit of ?1,oio (Hid per year In the city's revenue. It also mentis tcr-s stivet cleaulii.i: and fewer police. BOLT AS CARTER TOLD YOU TO.

When Cailer-the-lcss Is elected the down-town piinbllnu saloons will do all the business. The respectable places outside the business district will have to close up. THE WAY THE GREAT CARTER HARRISON STOPPED WIDE OPEN GAMBLING. It was Just slv years npi this splint; that the Carter II. Harrison drove Crep'er and the Democrats out of the City Hall, Tor riinnlni; the punbllin: houses wide open.

To the Editor: It Is Impossible to deprecate too strong ly Intimidation when connected with the exercise or any great rigid, privi lege or prorogutlvo. Thus wo ure till n unit In condemning any unit nil nt tempts nt coercing or unduly bullion dug the sovereign voter when selecting those whom be desires to represent or govern him. The only way In which we ure permitted to sway the popular feeling Is by the educational or nrgii inentatlve method: by coolly, calmly and deliberately placing both sides or the ipicstlou liefon the electors or the commonwealth, uud giving lu a logical uud tiuliupassluued tnantier good nud stilllcietit reasons why one side Is more worthy or consideration than the other. It Is only the demagogue, or the mail conscious or the weakness or his argu ment, but tenaciously clinging to It, who will dare rorusc his antagonists a healing, or deny the opposition lespect fid explanation. If our elections ought lo be conducted In this Just, delibera tive mode, how much inoru necessary Is It for us to surround our legislative assemblies with the saute luiluetices. And yet the opposite Is the case, uud within the past row weeks our Stale lawmakers have been treated with threatening, bulldozing measures that are equated only lu the history or early parliamentary meetings, when the rep resentatives or Hie people were under the Immediate control or the autocratic power of tlie crown. The constitutional right of petition does not, uud never did, curry with It the clement or Intimidation, and the Itivudlug of the capltol by largo crowds or uu army or Individuals with noise or trumpets uud blare or brass bauds to rorcc upon Hie luw-tuakcrs the adop tion or some particular legislation Is Improper lu the extreme, or eiiial Incorrectness Is the holding or mass meetings, even on the I mil or what Is known ns the "better classes."' where lu bitter speeches me made, mid thrcnts eiiiinclalcd. ami abuse Indulged lu. with the Intention or preventing the enactment or some especial measure. As an example of this conduct, I would call intention to the way In which what Is known us the "Humphrey bill" lately Introduced Into our Legislature, has been I rented. This bill practically rctilics that certain powers now pos sessed by Hie municipal council. In liansferred to a boa id brought into existence by Hie Illinois General As sembly, mul it slmpllllcs lu every way Hie relations of our surface street-car roads to tin citizens. There Is not a fiilr-mlmlcd. unbiased Individual who tends this but who must give the girat est credit to our street lullrouil coin panics for the lungulltccut systems or internal transportation wo possess, and which have done more than any oilier single factor to develop Chicago, ami extend her hordcis, lueicase her strength mid wealth, mul give her Hie Imperial position she to-day occupies. And yet the gieat men who have aided so materially lu producing these re sults, who huvo by Ihelr ablllllcs nt liacted lluanclal Intlueiice to us, who have laid out, built, engineered, nud extended these roads, me treated with to say Hie least scant courtesy whenever they 'endeavor to Improve the t nvlronineiits and place on a more suionml stable basis the Interests com mit led to their care. A more honorable man, u more bioiid minded citizen, or u more ihoiough gentleman than Mr. Charles T, Yerkes does not exist, Possessed of generous iiuiillllciillous, which endear him lo I hose with whom he personally comes lu coiituet, It Is. however, lo his ottlclal capacity I desire to Invite no i lee. He round the North uud West Divisions of Chicago "wide us the poles asunder." with Incomplete car Hues, with small, tiucniufnrtuhlc curs uud these few and far between so that It was a mil day's Journey to venture from one side of the city to the other. The present condition of affairs speaks for Itself, mid needs no discussion, Mr. Yerkes is the chief executive ottlclal of the stockholders, who are the real owners or the roads, nud the great mass of these stockholders consists of men mid women of medium or no means, who have contldence lu the abilities of the president, mid have put their savings Into Hits stock as an Investment, The president, thererore, has a sacred trust In his bauds, ami an Important charge Is Imposed upon him to guuid ami de ft lid this trust In every way, and ut all times. But ii very short lime ago ihe Munic ipal League of Chicago, lu nil olllchil document Issued by Its order mid with Its authority, gave a history of the al dermen who rule our city, A careful perusal of this Important paper showed that the opinion of Hirse league olll cers was Hint u considerable majority of the city fathers were "had" men nud unlit for their positions. And now this league cries out that this venal Council, too bad for Hiem lo deal with, Is gootl enough for the railroad com panies to idilalu charters from. And when Vhc railroad corporal Ions appeal lu Hu Interest of their xmeklmhlcrs to the State Ltvlslalure lo be relieved rroiuHicdaiigcrsnud Injustices connect ed with llielr being at the mercy or this Judged and league-condemned Council Uien the members or the league are tilled with virtuous horror, I mil afraid, though, that Ihey themselves will know how weak mid uutcutihlo Is their pnMilou. At Hie Central 'Music Hall mass meet ing the enemies of the Humphrey bill announced that Ihry would be out In force. Now, Hie confessed enemies of a measure could not lie supposed. to dis cover any eletneni or iroprlcly In II, mid common decency would rctpilre Hint ut such a gathering every phase mid Nulsfivlsloii or the bill should be talked over, mid weighed lu the balance or reason mid Judgment. For no man or measure should lie condemned with out being given a chance for explana tion. And yet the civic purists, lu the most curt mid unfair manner isisslble, refused positively to allow Hon. Egbert JamlcMiu to appear and give reasons why the bill should be accorded Impar tial stiiily, so thai a clear understand ing of Its merits or demerits might be bad.
