IT'S NOBQDY'S CINGH
The Chicago Election Has
Come Pretty Close to Re
sulting- in a Tie.
Hempstead Washburne and
Mayor Cregier Both Claim
to Have Won.
The Calculators for Cregier
Place His Plurality at
But the Washburne Crowd Is
Still Serene and Very
CniCACo, April B.— At 2a. m. Comp
trnller Ouahan stated that all precincts
had been heard from, and that the
complete returns give Cregier 46,
--SGG, Hempstea<] Wasbbarne 40,133—
b plurality for Cregier of 433.
The gain for Cregier was in the stock
yards district, where the Irish-Amer
ican voters appear to have clung
Bolidly to their first favorite, Cre
gier. The vote for Carter EL Harrison
was 40,515; Elmer Washburn, 23,064.
The City Press association, which has
been gathering the returns for the Chi
cago papers, announced that the city
hall people made a mistake of 1,955
votes in footing when the result frdni
precinctswas given out and that the error
was continued through to the time when
the complete returns were totaled. Ac
cording to the City i'ress association
Hempstead Washburn still has a plural
ity of 1,534.
Full of Excitement.
It was the most exciting scramble of
an election ever witnessed in Chicago,
and the Republican leader, Hempstead
Washburne, has come out on top of the
heap. He is the first Republican save
one elected mayor of Chicago in 15 years.
The Democrats had a formidable split
In their rank? to contend with in the in
dependent candidacy of ex-Mayor Car
ter H. Harrison, but the Republicans
were little if any better off in
that respect, owing to the citizens'
movement headed by Elmer Washburn,
ex-chief of the United States secret
service. Both Carter Harrison and
Elmer Washburn, particularly the
former, polled a vote that was amazing
to the straight party politicians.
Harrison is said to have had the
secret support of a large number of the
wealthy men of the city who are back
ing the world's fair. His old-time
strength with the foreign-speakfng
population, especially the Germans and
Bohemians,returned heavily to him also.
Elmer Washburn's vote, while a sur
prise to the machine politicians, was
something of a disappointment to his
friends, being contined more closely
than was expected to the membership
of the American societies. The turning
point in the contest was to a considera
ble extent the
and this was exerted in a decidedly
singular manner. Heinpstead Wash
burne's wife is the daughter of the
president of the Hibernian Bank of
Cnicago, and large numbers of Irish-
Americans, wearying of the figot be
tween the two Democratic leaders.
Harrison and Cregier, and believing
that Uempstead Washburne was being
antagonized by certain elements solely
on account of his wile, rallied to
his support. The indications at 11:30
p. m. were that, aside from
Heinpstead Washburne the other suc
cessful candidates were about evenly
divided between Democrats and Repub
licans. Socialist Morgan's vote was un
expectedly insignificant, about one
eighth of the number oi Soeiolists
popularly supposed to be in the city.
The interest shown to-night in the re
turns surpassed anything ever displayed
in a national election. Madison street
and Filth avenue, where the newspaper
bulletins were to be seen were blocked
for hours by thousands of people, yell
ing themselves ho;:rse and blowing
tin horns till black in the face.
Throughout the uisht the corridors
of the city hall were thronged to
suffocation, while in all the theaters
returns were read from the s-tatre. The
day was marked by a number of bloody
affrays, culminating in several trage
dies. Even the bootblacks

only instance in which resort was made
to such extreme tactics of the frontier.

Several Peculiarities in the
Kansas City, Mo., April 7.—Elec
tions were held in Kansas to-day in all
cities of the iirst and second classes.
Although without general political sig
nificance tlie results of the elec
tion ate regarded with considerable
interest for two reasons— first, because
the Citizens' Alliance has tickets in the
field and is fighting all the old parties.
The Citizens' Alliance is practically a
branch of the Fanners' Alliance. It is
organized on the same basis and has the
same objects in view. It is composed
of that element in the cities which
would join the Farmers' Alliance but
for the fact that the constitution
of the latter organization will
admit none but farmers. This
element has been organized in the cities
mostly since the Farmers' Alliance
landslide last fall, and this election is
its first opportunity for showing its
strength. Much interest is manifested
in the result on this account.. The
other element in the election which at
taches interest to it is the fact that
women, under the laws of Kansas, are
allowed equal suffrage with men in mu
nicipal elections. Returns from sev
eral cities show that the Citizens'
Alliance did not cut much of a figure in
the election, excepting where it in
dorsed the Democratic nominees. In
those places they were successful in
electing the Democratic nominees. Re
turns from Leavenworth show that the
entire Republican ticket has been
elected. This is the first Republican
victory for six years in that vicinity.
At Lawrence the Republicans were
also successful. They elected their
full ticket, with the exception
of two members of the council elected
by the Citizens' alliance. At Clay Cen
ter the Republicans defeated the Citi
zens' Alliance, and at Wichita the Dem
ocrats carried everything. Atchison
elects Republican officers, and Olathe a
mixed set of officers, with the Republi
cans in control. At Ottawa all the
parties combined against the Republi
cans, but the latter were successful.
Incomplete returns from nearly all
voting precincts of Kansas City give a
small plurality for Stout, Dem., for
mayor. Official returns may change
MICHIGAN VEIIY CLOSE,
Though the Republicans Seem to
Detroit. Mich., April 7.— Later re
turns from yesterday's election show the
vote to have been extremely light, and
the result as forecast by the returns thus
far received is so close that
the official count will probably be
necessary to determine the result in
many counties. The general feeling up
to this evening was that the Republi
cans elected their supreme court and
regeuts of the state university candi
dates, and they still claim their elec
tion by upwards of s,(XXrniajority. The
Democrats, on the contrary, say that
the result is evidently so close that they
are not warranted in conceding the
state, and assert that the later returns
are running more in their favor.

HABTFOBD, Conn., April 7.— ln the
senate to-day an adjournment was taken
until Tuesday next at 1:80 p. tn., after
a motion of Senator Shumway to fix
the date of adjournment to Nov. 11 had
been voted down. It is not certain
whether the senate will continue in
session, adjourning from week to week
until next November is reached, or
whether, after finishing up the senate
business on hand, it will go over until
the date to which the house adjourned.
It is held that by voting down a motion
to adjourn until November, disagreeing
action has been reached which will al
low the governor to adjourn the senate
until that date. Whether Gov. Bulkely
will try to do tiiis is not known.
EASILY MADE HAPPY.
Tariff Bill McKinley Likes the
Washington, April 7. — Ex-Repre
sentative McKinley is very much elated
over the result of the local elections in
Ohio yesterday.o In an interview this
evening, he said: "I think Republican
ism is reviving, not only in Ohio, but in
all parts of the country. The people
are beginning to lind out the false
prophets who- talked about the tariff
last year. They see that the increased
prices and all that was a part of the
scheme of misrepresentation. You re
membor the recent local elections in
New York state were very encouraging
to the Republicans. You can never
argue with absolute accuracy from
merely local elections, but I think the
Republicans are in pretty good shape all
over the country."
Of the outlook for ISO 2, Maj. McKin
ley said :
"I think the Republicans are hound
to elect the president in '82 whoever
they ncminate. I notice that Mr. Hill
is trying to change the issue and to put
a different interpretation on the Novem
ber elections from that popular with the
Democrats. Ido not know where there
is any significance in that."
Discussing politics further, he 6aid
that he did not see how the Democrats
could avert making silver a leading
issue in the next presidential contest if
they passed a free coinage bill through
the house and it was defeated either in
the senate or by the president's veto.
He did uot think, however, that the
nomination of Mr. Cleveland would
necessarily be interfered with by that.

It Is Causing Considerable Trouble
Washington, April 7.— The counter
feit *2 silver certificate heretofore de
scribed in these dispatches is causing
considerable trouble at the treasury de
partment. Not more than twenty of
these counterfeits have come into the
hands of treasury officials. The extent
of their circulation, however,, is not
known, as they cannot be readily de
tected except by experts. The issue of
the regular $2 certificate has been
suspended, and arrangements are
being made for the issue of a
substitute. The original bears the por
trait of Gen. Hancock, and the substi
tute will have that of Secretary Win
dom. While the old series has not been
called in, none of the notes of that
series coming into the treasury will be
reissued. The department is also con
sidering the advisability of discontinu
ing the use of the distinctive paper on
which government notes and securities
are now printed. A commission has
been appointed to investigate the manu
facture and use of the paper, and to re
port whether the interests of the gov
ernment require any additional safe
guards in that respect. It is stated at
the department that this paper has
never yet been successfully imitated.
It is felt, however, that no harm can
conic from efforts intended to remove
all possible doubt on the subject.

Washington, April 7.— Among the
patents issued by the patent office to
day were seventeen to George F. Si
monds, of Fitchburg, Mass. This is the
largest number granted to ono man In a
single day for many years, but the case
is also interesting because the Inventor
has, it is claimed, successfully solved
the problem of applying the principle
of ball bearings to the heaviest ma
chinery. Heretofore it has only been
possible to use these bearings on bicy

BLAINE HANGING BACK.
That Is the Charge Against the
Secretary at Montreal.
Montreal, Que., April 7. — Refer
ring to the trip of the trade delegates to
Washington, the Gazette (ministerial)
says: "This may be a courteous and
diplomatic way of intimating that the
United States government declines to
even consider the question of reciproc
ity with Canada, or it may be the fruit
of Sir .Richard Cartwright's desperate
efforts to induce Americans to refuse
negotiations with the Conservative gov
ernment, on the ground that much bet
ter can be secured from the Liberals.
.We are bound, however, to accept the
excuse put forward by Mr. Blame for the
unexpected postponement of the infor
mal conference, although doing so"
taxes our" credulty somewhat heavily.
Canada can await" Mr. Blame's notifica
tion that he is ready to begin negotia
tions. Meanwhile It is obvious that Sir
John Macdonald is ready and eager to
proceed to the business of concluding a
broad and liberal trade with the United
States, while the American authorities
are hanging back."
Speaking on the subject the Herald
(Liberal) says: "It does not appear that
there was any design on the part of Mr.
Blame or President Harrison to block
Sir Charles Tupper's scheme. Mr.
Blame is not consumed with a burning
desire to enter into reciprocity negotia
tions with Sir John Macdonala's gov
ernment, as he does not know how far
they are prepared to go beyond the
treaty of 1854. On the whole, the move
seems to be simply one to gain time to
quiet the reciprocity wing of the Con
servative party by a show of doing
something, so as to tide over what
threatens to be for. the government a
lively and difficult question." :..
WITH OLD CERTIFICATES.
How the Direct Tax Is Being Re
funded the States. '
. New York, April 7.— A Boston spe
cial to the Evening Post says: The
government is remitting the money re
funded to the states under the direct
tax refunding bill in old silver certifi
cates, issued under the Bland seventy
two dollar act. The state of Maine's
£350,000 came here last night, and part
of it was offered in settlement of bal
ances at the clearing house and refused.
The banks have a verbal understanding
not to use silver in the settlement of
balances, but the act of 1882 provides
that no banking association shall re
fuse these certificates. Hence fears of
bringing the banks to a silver basis are
current. . Massachusetts will- receive
from 8700,000 to $800,000 as its part of
the refund in a few days, and this bids
fair to complicate mattters unless the
state treasury carries the money. The
matter has caused much discussion
among the banks, and the outcome is
watched with interest.
OUR COAST DEFENSES.
Gen. Hawley Says They Should
Have Attention. ..'.
Hartford, Conn., April Senator
Joseph R. Hawley addressed the Hart
ford board of trade this morning on the
subject of "The Weakness of our Coast
Defenses." Gen. Hawley criticised the
indifference of the people in recent
years to the matter of adequate coast
defense. The recent complications with
Italy, he said, showed the rapidity with
which trouble 'might come. Halifax,
less than two days' sea journey from
Boston, is a perpefual menace to our
unprotected coast, for England, in case
of war, would assemble her fleet there.
Gen. Hawley said the cost of adequate
defenses for the coast might be $125,
--000,000, but this would be extended over
a ' term of years. No exorbitant tax
would be necessitated by the appropria
tion of this amount, and the investment
would prove wise in all respects.
THE COKEKS 1 STRIKE.
A Final Stand to Be Made at More
Mount Pleasant, Pa., April 7.— lt
is at Morewood the strikers will either
stand or fall, as smaller operators are
awaiting the issue there before starting.
At Morewood to-day 18 men were at
work out of . 620 in the mines, and 31
were drawing coke. About 100 ovens
are now burning out of a total of 620.
No mere arrests of strikers were made
to-day, although a large number of war
rants were in the hands of a constable.
The little commotion caused by the cir
culation of a petition for the recall of the
militia now turns out to be a fizzle.
The petition was circulated by a citizen
who is greatly prejudiced against the
soldiers on account of a personal en
counter with the boys.
Peaches Not Injured.
Rockpokt, Ind., April 7.— Reports

Bridgeport, Conn., April 7.— The
great showman, P. T, Barnum, passt-d
away at 6:22 o'clock this evening in the
presence of his grief-stricken family.
During the period of Mr. Baniuni's in
validism and confinement to the house,
which began twenty-one weeks ago last
Ft id ay, there have been frequent fluctu
ations in his condition, from each of
which he rallied, although in each in
stance with a slightly lowered vitality.
The change for the. worse which oc
curred last night, however, was so much
more pronounced than previous attacks
had been that it convinced the attend
ing physicians that their patient had
not many more hours to live. During
his confinement to the house he lias
been down stairs only twice, although
sitting up much of the time, and being
cheerful and conversationally inclined
in his waking moments. After the at
tack, which came upon him shortly be
fore midnight. Mr. Barnum suffered a
good deal of pain. He seemed to realize
that he could not live much longer, and
spoke of the approaching end wiih
calmness. During his illness the
physicians have been careful about
administering morphine or sedatives of '
any kind through a tear that they
might produce ulterior ill-effects. That
night Mr. Barnum spoke of this, and
said when all hope was gone he wished
to be given sedatives which
Would Allay His Pain
and make his death as peaceful as pos
sible. Dr. Hubbard promised compli
ance with his wishes in this respect.
The first sedative was given at 10:10
o'clock this morning. It was understood
by the patient and his family to mean
that the end was near. Mrs. Barnum re
mained at her husband's side through
out the night. In alternate bpells of
dozing and in conversation, which
showed his brain to be as clear as ever,
Mr. Barnum passed the hours until !
about 4 o'clock this morning, when he
sank into a lethargy, which was ■ con
dition of stupor rather than of natural
sleep. To rouse him from this state of
unconsciousness was difficult. A faint
gleam of recognition alone indicated
that he had knowledge of his surround
ings, or knew the famjliar and
sympathetic faces grouped about
him. Thus matters went on un
til about 10 o'clock this morn
ing. He was again aroused, and his
mental faculties appeared to be brighter
than at any time during tiie several
hours previous. The scene in the dy
ing mau's chamber was deeply pathetic,
mr. Bannim was fully awake and con
scious, although his nearly exhausted
physical powers made it impossible for
him to talk. The affectionate messages
he conveyed with his eyes to tin* weep
ing attendants were more expressive
than words. With the exception of
himself, all were in tears. Previous to
the arrival of several of the relatives
from New York on the 10 o'clock train,
Rev. Mr. Fisher bent
Over the Dying Man
and spoke to him words of religious con
solation. Mr. Barnuuvs eyes bright
ened as the scriptural promises were
recalled to him, and he half nodded li.s
head in assent, .shortly after 11 o'clock
he tonka sedative from Dr. Hubhard,
and soon afterwards sank into a peace
ful Sleep. Mrs. Thompson, his daugh
ter, sat by the bedside holding his hand
In hers from the time of her arrival in
the sick room. She could not hold back
tears, although she struggled to com
pose herself. Mrs> Barnum also
endeavored to restrain her feel
ings and present to her hus
band a cheerful countenance.
At 3:30 o'clock this afternoon Mr. Bar
num sank into a comatose condition,
from which it was evident that there I
would be little hope of his again re
turning to consciousness. When the
end finally came it was peaceful and
to all appearances painless. The piiy-"
scians say ttiat Mr. Barnum had no
organic disease whatever, the enfee
bled heart action, which nad been ap
parent for the past few months, being
due to a gradual failure of his general
mental powers, resulting from old age.
In a general way Mr. Barnum had pre
scribed directions for
He wished it to be of a private char
acter and unostentatious. Of show and
parade he said he had had enough dur
ing his life, and his commitment to his
last resting place he wished devoid of
all ceremony beyond the simplest trib
ute of affection and respect. He di
rected that the interment should be in
the Mountain Grove cemetery, where
several years ago he erected a massive
granite monument of simnle design.
The funeral will be held Friday after
noon in the North Congregational
church, and will be conducted by
Key. L. B. Fisher, the Universalist
pastor, assisted by Rev. Charles Ray
Palmer, of the North church. Mr. Bar
num had an intense horror of embalm
ing or of having his body placed on ice
after death. The remains will there
fore be kept In a dark, cool room in the
house. The body will then be inclosed
in a hermetically sealed metallic casket.
This is in exact accord with Mi. Bar
num's expressed wishes. 'Ihere will,
no doubt, be an effort made to induce
the family to have the obsequies pub
lic. From present indications, however,
the family will probably strictly adhere
to the wishes of the deceased.
New York, April 7. —The announce
ment was given out to-night by the man
agement of the Madison Square garden,
where the show now is. It was stated
in typewritten announcement that the
death of Mr. Barnum, while not en
tirely unlooked for. was not in any
sense anticipated by his equal partner,
J. A. Bailey. Mr. Bainum, however,
realized that at his advanced age— he be
ing over eighty years or age— demise
might occur at almost any time. It was
accordingly provided in their articles of
agreement that "In case of the death
of either, the show should go on
as usual." J. A. Bailey accordingly
announces that the show will continue
with its policy entirejy unchanged. The
capital of $3,500,000 will remain intact,
and Mr. Bailey will continue to act as
manager. For the past few years Mr.
Bailey has been the prime mover of tho

figure, typical of the age of transparent
