A FlNlcDAf AND A Firt-L VO'I r ! J The election pus :ed off very qni I on Tuesday. So quietly tiiat ■ i ; woul<i hardly have known that i* wu elect ion day were it not foi the crov. and . i gathered at lie polling pIaCM. A great deal of l.ard work was done for both tickets, The People's Ticket came out ahead, with two exceptions. .Mayor Speiisley was re-elected by a majority of forty-throe votes. Mr. Pnll'ord, contrary to expectations, was beaten for Supervisor in lh< upper ward, 1 ut by a small majority. The fuel tiiat his opponent, Mr. Shep ard, is a very popular man, and is at present a member of (he (lonntyHoard and ably represents the city,will prob ably account for the defeat of the for mer. Mr. Pnll'ord was deemed the strongest candidate that could he brought out, and Mr. Shepard has therefore all the more right to feel proud over his election. Mr. Priestley made a splendid run for Assessor, coming out ahead by lot majority. Doctors Moffett and Field contended for the superintendency of schools, but the supporters of the former proved much more numerous than the supporters of the latter, and Moffett won the day. Mr. A. 15. Ferris made an excellent run for alderman in the first ward, and the fact of having beaten so good a man as Mr. Treweek shows that he possesses strength and the confidence of his friends. A big light was made by the friends of John Dale and Nicholas Smith for llieoltiee of Treasurer, and Smith won hv a fair majority, Janies got a majority of seventy in the second ward. VV. N. Curry was re-elected Supervisor by a good majority; and Hugh Connaugb for constable, beat both bis opponents, and is hack in bis old place again. Sam Jaeka was the lucky man, being elected constable in the first ward by a majority of two votes. Following is tlii! vote for each can date and the majorities for those elected; Ist w’d. 2d w’d.

I is to be hoped dial we have wit ness and for Ilea last time the attempt to 1 e mduct the city elections on the “temperance issue," so-called. The Democrat h ( >m the first was in favor of Ik Ming straight parly caucuses and making party nominations, ami it still believes that it it is the only satis factory manner in which elections can be conJui ted. Not that it has any ob jections to lind to a Republican being elected to a city ollice, or is dissatisfied with the result of Tuesday’s election, but it believes that in straight party I nominations, all side issues are more likely to he shut out, and that in order to hope for victory each parly will be compelled to nominate the very best men as candidates for the various city offices. The Democrat wishes it distinctly understood that it has no alliliation j with any temperance or other organ izations. Nor does it seek to promote the interests of one class of citizens above the interests of another class.! It simply demands Dial the existing city laws shall be enforced. It is but justice to state, that with ail the hu" and cry raised by the tem perance folks about the violations of the liquor ordinances and the neglect of officers to do their duty, not a single complaint has been entered by any of them or any attempt made to punish at law for such violations. II is alike true that violations of the liquor ordinances have* been frequent and continued, despite the known wishes and the protests of all right minded citizens. The Democrat has no desire to carry water on l idh shoulders; nor on any j shoulder for that matter. It will de nounce with all the force it. can com mand any violations of the city or dinances, and especially such as cause so much bickering and strife as the violations to which it now refers. The city deems it wise to have the saloons closed at 11 o’clock, I*. M., and they should ho closed at that hour, until otherwise ordered. It is not a question of interference with individual rights. It is a man’s own business whether he takes a, drink or not, all the sickly sentiment in the world to the contrary, notwithstand ing. Rut it is altogether another question, where interference is made with the rights of others and laws violated which are made for the pro tect ion of all. The Democrat has no desire to pur sue the subject further. Radicalism in whatever form it may appear is to be denounced, and it is to he Imped tiiat truth and justice will he found midway between the two extremes which Jia\ e been warring against each other, and that the city elections will he held for the purpose of choosing | the most titling men for ollicers, and [ not simply fur the purpose id' deciding S a forced "temperance issue.” Wisconsin has over twenty lodges lof the Ancient Order of I'niteJ Work ; men.
