Chicago, April 6.—Commenting on the result ot yesterday's election the Times, Independent Democrat, says: "The people of Chicago have given their answer in no uncertain tones to the brazen demand of the Hay-market ban ditti for the surrender of the municipal government into their blood-stained hands. Tbe candidate of the red flag barbarians for the mayoralty bas been defeated by a majority approximating 28,000, and his associates on the city and town tickets have suffered a like righteous fate. The re.-ult is a magnifi cent triumph for the intelligence and conscience of Chicago. It is a splendid vindication of patriotism. It is a crush ing rebuke to tbe demagogues and tricksters of the Carter Harnsou type, who, to promote their unb dlowed am bition for power, have been dallying with lawlessness and want and only trifling with the safety,' prosperity and good name of tbis community. Santa Rosa's Prospects for a Railroad.

LITTLE RHODY'S ELECTION. Providence, R. I , April 6 —As far as can be ascertained at this hour, 12:30 A. stji the House stands: 27 Republicans aud 20 Democrats. Senate, 18 Repub Means and 10 Democrats, with four cities or towns to be heard irom. The returns have not all yet come in and election hangs in the balance. Wot inore heads Davis slightly, but this city bas gone strong for the Demoorutie can didate and will probibly give him a majority. It is now thought that the entire Democratio ticket has been suoeessful, although that was not the result first anticipated. Tho Pro hibition vote is a fizzle, and thewoman's suffrage vote made a poor show. The vote cast has been a very large one, and everybody that could cast a ballot has done so. The vote on Attorney General is practically the same as on Governor. As far as the returns are at hand the Woman Suffrage amendment was defeat ed badly. Davis' majority in the State will probably reach 1000, and it is likely to be sustaiaed on the whole Democratio State ticket. Sail Mateo's Library Hnlldlna; Burned.

Chicago, April 6.—Two hundred and fifty carpenter contractors, representing four-fifths of all the employers of car penters in this city, held a meeting this afternoon and agreed to ooncede some of tbe demands of the eight thou sand strikers. The compromise was rejected to-night by the carpenters' Executive Committee. Tbe eight-hour proposition was agreed to; also a motion to fix the lowest wages at thirty cents an hour, and to grade the wages of men up according to the ability. Both these concessions were rejected by the strikers' Executive Committee because the bosses had ignored their committee when they called to-day while the employer's meeting was in ses sion. It is thought that the strike will be a protracted one and all building trades will suffer greatly in consequence. A detail of 2000 strikers to-day failed to find but few carpenters at work and they were in remote parts of tbe city. THE FRAUDULENT SURVEYS. I lie y Have Been Going on since 1810. Washington, April fl.—Relative to the charges which have been brought in Ban Francisco against John A.

Their operations began in 1879, when the special deposit system went into operation. Commissioner Sparks Btated in his last two annual re ports that the survey's by the Pacifio coast riDg were, in the main, fictitious. He added that he refused to audit their acoounts, and every expedient known to legal chicanery has been used to foroe the payment of such accounts through the Treasury, over the beads of the accounting officers of the Interior De partment. It is stated at the laud offioe that the bulk of these frauds were com mitted prior to the year 1884. and were, therefore, covered by the statute of limi tations, but the information upon which theee indictments was obtained was by a preliminary examination only of the special agent. What a oomplete and thorough examination will result in, ia a question. A ISostsss Fire.

At the Grand Opera Bouse last night Mr. Carleton's opera company produced for the last time for the present, tbe popular musical crsze of the day, Erminie. At all points the performance was highly satisfactory. All the mem bers of the troupe were in good vuice aud spirits, and tbe audience enjoyed to the full the sprightly music and rattling fun of tbe piece. Mr. Carleton favored tho music.lovers of the city with his two charming sougs— "Woman, Dear Woman," And, "Rohe Marie." Rarely indeed were they sung, the latter being particularly sweet for the pathos thrown into the tender notes by tbe exquisite baritone voice of Mr. Carleton.

Unveiling of a Maine to His memory at New Orleans. New Orleans, April 6.—The cere monies incident to the unveiling of the statue of General Albert Sidney John ston took place tbis afternoon, in the presence of ten thousand people. On the platform were many noted persons, including Mr. and Mrs. Jefferson Davis, their daughter, General Beauregard and staff, aud others. Davis spoke in eloquent words of bis old friend and brother soldier, and re counted at length his services to the State of Texas while they were lighting for their liberty and the right of self government; also his services to the United States during tbe war with Mexico. In conclusion, he said: "I loved him as. brother, I hon ored him us a man, I admired him as a hero; but more than all this I felt tbe loss to the just cause which was inflicted when Johnston died. My frieuds, I have already said enough. You all know that Johnston led an army which was composed of material lapidly thrown together. One corps commanded by the gallant and true soldier, Bragg, was the only one which had the advantage of thorough discipline. Y"ca who followed John-ton through battle -aw how he had gone forward, step by step, until at last he was snatched by death from the very arms of victory, almost completed by his genius and your valor — the valor of the army of the Tennessee — which, whether in advance or retreat, received no stain to transmit to future generations." In reply to an invitation to be preeent at tbe unveiling, President Cleveland sent tbe following: Executive Mansion, April L 1887. Walter H. Rogers, President, Etc, : Mr Dear Sir—l acknowledge with thanks an invitation extended to me by the Association of the Army of the Tennessee to attend the unveiling of an equestrian statue of General Albert Sydney Johnston on the 6th inst. at Metaire Cemetery. I regret that owing to engrossing official duties, whioh demand my attention, I cannot be present on that occasion, That General Johnston was a great sol dier, and from the time he left West Point to the hour of his death on the field of Shiloh, he was conspicuous for valor, for military celebrity, and for the highest personal character, must be fully conceded by all his countrymen. The eredion of a monument for the perpetu ation of hia name is a fitting testimony to the affection and respect in which he is held by his comrades of tbe civil war and may well be to them a work of tbe greatest interest and satisfaction. The patriotic sentiments acoompanying the invitation whioh I have received and the fraternal feeling therein ex pressed, I gladly recognize as proof that in tbe present condition every American citizen may share in the pride inspired by the illustration of the traits which bave ennobled American charact ers. With my best wishes for the suo cess and prosperity of your society, I am Yours sinoerely. Grovir Cleveland. Officer J. F. Massey, oue of the Sani tary Police officers, appointed for spe cial service to inspect the alleys, yards and open areas in tbe city, reports a vigorous work in progress. The officers are attending to their duties without fear, favor or affection. Tbey find a vast amount of vile and odorous matter in many places in Sonoratown, which, if not promptly remove I, will cause dan gerous fevers. If this matter is not re. moved by the proprietors, tbe city will remove it to tbe sand plains iv the south part of the city, where it can be mixed with the sand and deodorized, after which it will change to mold and assist in reclaiming this worthless land and making it valuable for tillage. Tbis im portant movement is most timely and should be prosecuted vigorously. While the officers are attending to this impor tant inspection they might inspect and condemn the infamous, odorous and abominable gutter on the north side of Spring street, between the Allen build ing aud Franklin street.

Smith, farmer at Otoe, fa general bad couduet upon tbe agency, chiellv because of his ungovernable tem per, whioh was continually being turned loose upon both employes and ludiaas, I bad to kill him in self-defense. He nasi repeatedly threatened to kill the clerk in obarge, who reported his sea duct and asked that he be dis charged. I went to Oloe to explain to him my reasons for discharging him to hear his defense, if he had any, to pay him his salary for the past quarter and to dismiss him. While very calmly performing the duty, he made a violent attack upon the clerk in cbarce, whom lie wounded in the arm. He then turned upon Mr. burdell, the agency black smith, and myself, with a cooked and leveled revolver, and with the manner of a maniac, when I shot him dead. I am thorough ly convinced that I saved three lives in taking hi-, and when it is considered thut oue of those three was my own and tho only one I have, I trust I may be txoi crated." CRIMINALITIES.

New York, April 6—A special to the Mail and Express from C ntoocook, N. H , says distiuct earthquake tremors terrified the inhabitants iv this place to-day. The vibrations came from tbe east, and loud detonations were heard like claps of thunder. The cracking of the frozen ground and breaking ioe fat tbe ponds added lo the noise. The shocks lasted about one minute. Houses were jarred aad dishes rattled off of shelves in closets, while many people were rolled from their beds. • A New Yacht te Defend the American Onp. Boston, April 6.—General Chas O. Paine, owner of the yacht Mayflower, has deoided to build a steel ceuterboard yacht abont the size of las Mil Boats, to defend the American cop. William J. Kelley. It appears tbat Fred Wilson, who stated to a Herald reporter that be had been placed in jail when "sober," and possessed of $8 and over, is a large-sized liar. If he had been drunk he would have found that he bad bat $2 55 whan plased in the lockup, out of which ha paid $2 for being "strictly sober," got bis board for a day and a half for noth ing and had 55 cents left to get "sober" on. If he had not been drinking ha must have borrowed seme of his old drunks and forgotten that part of his burden which resembled a fresh-made drank so completely that Martin Agairre was led to believe him drunk. From his lack of memory in stating his financial condi tion, it is reasonable to suppose that his memory was of a dreamy character ia regard to tbe forced confiscation of his $0 for tobacoo for the veterans who board at the county jail. Ho probably dreamed about his financial pressure and loss, but tbe dream failed to be trne. Colonel James Thompson, tbe Jailor, and Under Sheriff H. M. Mitchell in form the Herald that in the new jail, the best in the State, tbe prisoners are separated so that Fred Wilson must have dreamed about the confiscation of bis tobacco money, for the records are against hiss, and he bad none to molest or make him afraid in his cosy cell. There are plenty of apartments for "sober" men in the new jail, so they are not thrown in a heap, as in the old-time j til. When Wilson goes in next time, it is hoped that bis memory may be more true to facts than it was iv his last experience. Sanitary Work.
