Tho predictions ninilo In Tho ICnirlc Inst wool; wore rtdllllod on Tuesday to tho lottor. This was not duo to tho unpopularity of tho candidates. Tho result wus duo to tho refusal of the Dcmooratlc masses to bo dictated to ly nn oath-bound secret political so ciety. Bvory Democratic, convention hold nowadays Is composed of delegates chosen at tho secret lodge meetings of tho so-called "Tainnmny Society." Tha Chicago Taininnny Ik an assoehi tlou of huiiKry olllee-holders and chron ic bums, who know each other through the medium of secret grips "and pass words. Xo man, no matter how respectable ho may lie, can bo elected a delegate to a convention unless ho can glvo the "Tiiiiimnny" grip and password. All who havo not tho password are barred from tho primaries. Their votes do not count. Tho object of "Tammimy" Is to con tinue tho Yellow Kid In otltce and tho rest of Its members on tho pay-roll. As for tho public, Ihey can bo damni'JTas often as they come up. lint there are thousands of Demo crats who do not euro about beliiB damned, and who object to belns con sidered tho satraps of a lot of cheap otlleo-holdcrs. They are nsnlnst secret political soci eties, and tho Yellow Kld'H secret "Tammany" In particular. That Is why tho Democratic vote fell off so amazingly In Democratic wards on Tuesday. Tho Democrats, If they were united, would havo carried Chicago on Tues day by 50,000 majority, Tho Itopiibllcaus were In rovolt against tho machliie, and thousands of them voted the Democratic ticket, as Is shown by tho returns from tho Ho publican wards. Hut for every Republican who voted the Democratic ticket there were two Democrats who voted tho ltepubllcan ticket. And all on account of the Yellow Kid's oath-bound "Taminauy." Just see how tho Democratic majori ties fell off In tho banner Democratic wards on Tuesday: In the Sixth Wurd, which usually gives -1.000 Democratic majority, tho Democrats got 1,100. In thtf Klghth Ward, 'which usually Blves 3,000 Democratic majority, tho Democrats got but 1,500. In tho Xluth Ward, which usually Blves 2,500 Democratic majority, tho Democrats got but 1,000, In tho Tenth Ward, which usually gives '.',500 'Democratic majority, tho Itopiibllcaus got 1,000 majority. In tho Fifteenth Ward, which usual ly gives 2,000 Democratic majority, tho Domocrats got 240. In tho Sixteenth Ward, which usual ly elves 3,500 Democratic majority, tho Democrats got 1,000, In tho Seventeenth, whoro tho Demo crats usually havo 500 majority, Uio Republicans got 200, In tho Twenty-third, which usually gives 1,500 Democratic majority, tho Itepublleaus got 400. , lu the Twenty-eighth, which usually gives .Mmi Democratic majority, the Ite publleaus got 500. In the Thirty-third, which usually Blves 1,000 Democratic majority, the Itepubllcans got 800. The Democratic mnjorllles also fell awny In the First, Filth, Nineteenth mid Thirtieth Wards. Xo one. can contemplate tho llgures without feeling that the Democrats are Just awakening to tho fnot that the oath-bound secret society which now dominates Its conventions must go! If you don't belong to tho oath-bound secret "Tammany" Society yo'u cannot vote at a Democratic primary. Ity or der of the Yellow Kid. Tim 50,000 Democrats who elected the Itepublleau ticket on Tuesday will keep on electing Republican tickets un til Hie Yellow Kid and his toughs are retired to private life. The Bugle congratulates Senator John Humphrey ou his re-election. A man named Bnglchnrdt thought ho was running against him. Tho Yellow Kid nowspapers supported Biiglchurdt. The Yellow Kid can see by Senator Humphrey's re-eleetlou how much good the dally press will do him next spring. Tho dallies all opposed Humphrey nud ho is triumphantly re-elected. Let Yellow Kid Harrison, who stand for brace primaries and tho tough ele ment In polities, elect himself In the spring! The Bnglo feels proud of tho fact that the iwo Democratic judges who wore elected, Judge Hutchinson nud Judge Stein, were heartily supported by It during the light, and that the only Democrat elected County Assessor, James J. Cray, also had Us unwaver ing support, (Mr. Curler llarrlsou, Junior, has In terfered iignliiKt decent Democrats In every ward tight lu favor of toughs ami rutllaiis. Let the toughs and rutlluns elect him. What a grand vote Patrick J. Cahlll received for Clerk of tho Criminal Court! He ran ahead of every man ou ins iickci except JUilgo Kolilsnnt. The Mayor's chum ami bosom com panion, Llnrtblom the Terrible Swede, was not able to savo the day last Tues day, and yet tho Terrible Swede Is pres ident of the Mayor's pet Civil Sorvlco Commission. Tho Yellow Kid will bo renominated by tho "Tainmauy" secret socloty, and will make the race, ou his civil sorvlco record. Tho 50,000 Domocrats who votod ngalnst tho ticket last Tuesday are agalust tho Yellow Kid to a fliilsh. Chicago Is tho only city lu tho coun try which permits tho horrlblo adver tising sjga boards to dlsflguro Its streets. Tho City Council onco passed au ordinance doing away with thoso HON. ORRIN N.

The thugs and loafers whom tho Mayor keeps ou tho City Hall pay rolls, and who do no -work, may re-elect him If they can! Decent Democrats will vote against him. People do not have to Join a secret political society In order to vote against a Democratic ticket. The Yellow Kid's b-n-ii will bo heard for live more months. Tho dally papers will b-a-a In vain for tho Yellow Kid. Ills b-a-a will soon be silenced. Tho Yellow Kid never finds time to advocate a raise lu the salaries of our brave, hard-working tlremeii. Hut ho Hurts plenty of room ou city pay rolls for loafers who never do any work at all. When the Yellow Kid goes, the un sightly advertising billboards will go. George Kersten has the proud satis faction anyway of knowing that he has tho love ami respect of hi uelghliors. Tho Yellow Kid sald'ho was certain of the Polish vote. It turned out that ho was mistaken, however, for the Democratic majority lu the only Polish ward, the Sixteenth, fell from -1.000 to less than Duo. Wo wonder if tho Yellow Kid will run ou a free silver platform lu the spring? John F. O'Malloy didn't do a thing to tho opposition In tho Twenty-third. Tho "Tammany" gang are now claim lug tho spring election. They are go lug to Initiate tome now members for work on tho dumps. Tho work of driving Democrats out of the party Is still going ou at the City Hall. The O ra ud Army men are already laying wires to nominate their iHipulur commander, Col. James A.

Consequently it Is not at all surprising that many mem bers are strongly in favor of promoting .Mr. Rrunjes by making him President of the organization. Col. Free P. Morris, Hon. John P. McCoorty and Captain James Henry Fnrroll are all prominently mentioned tor leaders of the Democratic minority lu tho Illinois Legislature. With such Mien us James C. Irwin, James II. Ilurke, Michael Petrle, Chas. J. Ilnppcl, and F. J. Llndston ou the County Hoard tho taxpayers of Chi cago need have no fears for the future. It was a foregone conclusion that Nooiiim would defeat Wlilto lu the Fifth District. Hon. Fred A. llussu won out with tly lug colors, and Is now State Senator elect from the Twenty-llrst Senatorlnl District. Hon. Daniel Y. Harklii was easily elected to the Legislature In tho Nine teeiith District. Hon. William Lorlmer has been re elected to Congress lu tho Second Dis trict. Our congratulations to tho Hon. Floyd K. Wlilttemore, State Treasurer of Illi nois. Probably lu tho defeat of Democratic Judicial candidates none will bo moro welcomed by the public than that of Charles S. Thornton, Corporation Coun sel. He was severely cut by his own party. This second defeat of ids lu the same year marks his retirement from active polities as a candidate for any elective olllce. The Invincible dipt. James Henry Farrell won out with Hying colors and goes back to the llllnojs Legislature, where he will lead the Democratic mi nority lu the House. The voters of the Second Senatorial District have elected good men lu Vnr ley, Newcomer and Sullivan as their representatives in tho Illinois Legisla ture. Senator-elect Tom Mllchrlst says that down Hi tho Fifth District, whero tho peoplo honored him, "It wns very, very easy In fact, just llko a toboggan slide." Col, Free P. Morris was elected to tho Legislating Nor. 8 from tho Hlxteonth District by a very flattering majority, while "Gum Boll" Curtis was left at tho post. Mr. Morris will undoubtedly bo the Democratic leader of tho House, as he lias proven himself one of tho brain- lest members of the Legislature ever elected lu Illinois. Like Senator Fred A. Husse, Hon, Sid McCloud Is always ou top. Hon. John P. McOoorty and Hon. ltoU'tt Kcdllcld will spend tho winter at Sprlugtleld, whero they will not only rolled credit upon themselves, but also honor the people who sent them there. The Hoard of Cotiuty Commissioners will Ihj solidly ltepubllcan. James C. Irwin will succeed D. D. Hcnly as President of tho County Hoard. Ho Is well known and well liked. Senator "Harney" Mctiulre ran awny ahead lu the Ninth Senatorial District, where he was lioru nud raised. Morris, Farrell, McOoorty and Hed tleld will lie members of tho Demo crat le steering committee at Spring Held. Hon. Frauds J. Sullivan, Democratic Representative-elect from tho Second Senatorial District, will prove one of the leaders on the Democratic side of the House from tho start. Daniel V. Harklii is expected to take Ills place alongside of the brightest members of the House, and ho will prove an able lopresentntlvo of tho voters of tho Nineteenth Senatorial Dis trict. rpham nud Meaeham will prove tho right kind of members of tho Hoard of Review. The people can congratulate them selves most heartily upon tho re-elec-tlou of Judges Carter nud Kohlsant. Hon. Andrew J. Ryan Is much talked of for City Attorney next spring. He will prove a strong candidate for tho olllce. Tho voters of Illinois nro proud of tho fact that Floyd K. Whlttemoro has been proven by tho masses to bo eligible to tho otllco of Stato Treasurer for two years from Jan. 5, That ho will prove an holiest, capablo nud safo guardian of Stato funds goes without contradic tion. .Tudgo Jesse Iloldom ran away ahead, as The Knglo predicted ho would, Tho business men of this city and county hope to seo Chief Doputy Sher iff Charles W. Peters kept lu his pres eut position, sink out i I'umi school Neglect of Duty by the Yellow Kid's Administration Closes a Place of Learning. Swill, Offal and Garbage Are Emptied Into the Clay Holes Close to the Building, And tho Result Is that Teachers and Pupils Are Poisoned by the Effluvia. But as the Oath-Bound Local "Tammany" Controls the Dumps and the Dumpers, The City Hall Would Rather Close the School than Interfere with the Smell. Homo of the most fa I ih fill members of tho Yellow Kid's oiith-liound local Tam many Society are the garbage men who part hilly empty your hwIH boxes. Theso fellows,togelher with the "in spectors," paid by the city to look after them, all have the grip and the pass word of the local "Taiuiuaiiy." Ou this account they can (lump the swill where they want to, and poison the air as much as they like. Ashland uveiiiie, in tho vicinity of Noble avenue, Is Impassable lu the sum mer time ou account of tho proximity of tho Tammany garbage dump, which smells loudly all the year around. Complaints are u-eless, as tho neigh bors testify. "Tammany" Is the whole thing lit this dump. liven the schools complain lu vain of It and poor little children lose their health ami lives through It. Owing to the unsanitary surround ings the Augustus II. Hurley school, Noble iiveiiuo, near Ashland avenue, wiih closed Tuesday morning, nud will remain closed until action Is taken at tho next meeting of the board of edu cation. Nov. lit. The action was taken by Superintendent Andrews, President of the board. For miiuo time com plaints have been received as to nox ious odors arising from tho garbage dump one block from the school house. Two teachers havo boon made III on account of Hie odors which are blown Into tho schoolroom with every south wind, and Principal Leach himself was coutlucd 1o the house for two days from the same cause. Tho school has been dismissed at Usual hours Mueo Thurs day of last week, and It is found Im possible to do any regular work while tho present condition exists. Twenty-seven teachers, Including the principal, are employed at tho school, nud the monthly pay-roll of the build ing Is $2,100. The closing of tho build ing until Nov. HI will cost tho board ifSOO. When tho board meets It Is ex pected to appoint a committee to tnko the matter up with the city otliclals ami to continue the agitation until (ho nuisance Is abated. Tho Hoard had better apply to the oath-boiiud "Tammany" gang If It wants relief. To the Yellow Kid: Please run for Governor. Tho Dog Catcher' I'nlon got IUii the neck. As we said last week Thornton al-o ran. Tho small salaries paid to our fire men nro a dlsgraco to Chicago. Almost every other big city Is more liberal to Its tiro laddies. Democrat k whoso votes wore not counted at tho primaries hart them counted ou Tuesday all right. "Windy" Gallagher's efforts as chair man of the County Committee boro out hU reputation as a great producer of wind. If tho city administration would dis charge souio of tho loafers, on Its pay- roll and give the llreinen belter wagon IM-oplo would think more of It. We hope that tho Yellow Kid will give us a chance to see how he will run for do vomer. It was a sjid day for the Dog Caleb or I'nlon. Five months more of tho Y. K. Aid. Cullertoii Is right. There IV too much one man power lu tho City Coun cil. What right has any Mayor got to adjourn a legl-latlve body whenever he sees lit? The Yellow Kid, who is King or tho Dumps by virtue of h!s olllce, was lu the dumps ou Wednesday. Tho Kngle told you so last week. The Yellow Kid's gang Is only strong lu (iallaghor's specialty wind. The vote polled by Superior Court Judge Jesse Holdout proved conclusive ly that ho possesses'tlie eonlldenco ami respect of the masses. His record as a Judge will prove that tho peoplo have made no mistake lu honoring this great lawyer by election to the Superior Court bench. Justice of the Peace Robert L. Camp bell, of 11.7.1 North avenue, has made a lino record, and all the Judges are fa unable to his reappointment. No scan dal has ever attached to Judge Camp bell's record; neither has there any In junction ever been Issued ag.ilust It's court. Hon. H. A. Rckhart, the great miller. Is being much lulked of by Republicans lately for Mayor of Chicago. Mr. W. II. Alslp, tho well-known brick manufacturer, has moved fioiu his old slumping grounds, tho Kloventh Ward, Into the banner Republican Thirty-second. Mr. Alslp has many ad mirer who want to see him nominated for Mayor next spring. Many peoplo think the Republicans could not nominate a man who could poll more voles lor Mayor than tho Hon. Graeme Stewart. Chicago busi ness men. It Is claimed, would heartily Imloi-no the nomination of either Kck hart or Slowait. Hon. Hugh V. Murray Is a good law yer, and ho also proved himself one of the ablest members of tho Illinois Leg islature. Mr. Murray formerly lived at C'arlylo, Clinton County, and represent ed tho Forty-second District In tho lower house, lie has recently moved to Chicago, and now resides at .Vs.'tt Princeton avenue, Thirtieth Ward, lie Is doing a line law business, and has an elegant suite of olllees, l)2$-tU2 Stock P.xchaugc Hullillug. Thirtieth Ward Democrats are trying to persuade Lawyer Hugh V. Murray to accept Iho Democratic nomination for alderman next spring. I '&. J2Uftftfra&&&& .1 ,.
