The democrats carried the West and South town tlcketB b.ut the republicans saved the North town. Returns are coming In slowly but the chances are that the successful alder men are about equally divided. Naver In the history of Chicago has such interest been shown in any munic ipal election as in that which cameoff today. The campaign on both sides has been conducted with great bitterness. It was an open contenst of republicans and citizens against Harrison, more against him as an individual than as a representative of a political faction.

The Australian ballot, against whloh Har ison's popularity had never before been measured, was Inclined to make the loudest of his supporters a trifle cau tious, and not a large amount of bet ting was don at any figure,- The Ger man population which it was confident ly expected would go almost solidly against Harrison, proved a disappoint ment to both parties. It seemed to have split between the two candidates. At 5 o'clock, an hour after the polls had closed, crowds began to congregate In front of the .newspaper offices to await the returns. It was not as big an election ast hat of last November, but it meant as much or more to Chicago, and all Chicago was out tonight to see how it went. SHIP BURNED AT SEA. One boat Load of the Crew.

M. Shlvely died yesterday morning at the resi dence of Mrs. Daggett. His death was not,; of course, unexpected, as his phy. siclal condition had been slowly but surely growingweaker for some time past, -Although' he had lived longer thai the' ordinary span of man's life. Mr. Shlvely retained much of his physical ancf-all of his mental vigor until July 1, 1885, or until he was 83 years of age. It vas on that day that he contracted the illness from which he never re covered. Previous to the date men tioned, Mr. Shlvely had been personally engaged almost dally in making im provements on his property, but a se vere -!old, which developed soon after ward into rheumatism, suddenly"1 ter minated his usefulness. The disease af fected'his knee3, making it lmposible for him to move around without suf fering excruciating agony, and from that day until yesterday he kept his bed or couch, calmly and resignedly awaiting the call of hl3 creator. J. M. Shlely was born on April 2d, 1S04, and was therefore 89 years of age at the time of his death. He crossed the plains in 1843, and settled on his claim, founding the original townslte oC-Astbrla. In 4844,. but never developed the large tract of land which he owned. He was accompanied on his trip by Mr. John H'obson, and a number of others. In 1845 he went East to Washington, D. C, where he contracted his second mar riage. The lady was a, sister of Judge Milton Elliott, of this city, and by her ha had two sons, both of whom are dead. He returned to this city again In J.847 as mall carrier, having been employed in that capacity by the post office department during the adminis tration of President Polk and started from Independence, Mo., on his final trip across the continent in that year, during the days of the provincial gov ernment of Oregon. On his arrival he quietly settled down on his claim, and never Identified himself prominently with public matters, the only position he ever occupied having been that of postmaster under Polk in 1849. Mr. Shlvely during nearly all the time of his illness, was an Inmate of St. Mary's hospital. Three or four months ago he was conveyed to the boarding house of Mrs. Daggett, where as above stated, he expired. His property, which he conveyed to his son, Mr. C. W. Shlvely, about two years since, Is esti mated to be worth about $200,000. The funeral will take place this af ternoon at half past two. A report of the excellent entertain ment given by tho ladles and gentle men for tho benefit of Rescue temper ance Club could not be put in type in time for this morning's issue.

Hubbard, reports that he has already turned out into the Clackamas 3,500,000 strong young salm on, and that he has another 1.000,000, which will be ready to turn out some time next month. He also says that the brook trout spawn received from Michigan has hatched nicely, and he now has 20,000 young trout not over one Half an Inch long. These-will be dis tributed In small quantities as they may be called for in the various streams of the state. It will be some time yet before these Immigrants will be ready to turn loose among thelr.many vora cious enemies. A. S. Mercer, of Wyoming, who lias been appointed state agent in the ag ricultural department, must have changed his politics since he left Or egon. It is also hoped that he has un dergone a material revolution in other respects. Such fellows as Mercer gen erally get on top. He brought a ship load of girl to Oregon and Washing ton many years ago and some very good ones and married them off. While here he was connected with the Asto ria 'custom service as a republican.

It Is understood that this is the last reception of the season that Mrs. Cleveland will hold Bv the end of the present month it is expected that the Mlddleton Place on Woodley Lane road will be ready for occupancy. The president and Mrsi Cleveland having leased It for a term of years. The presllent and secretary of state have had several conferences regard lng the state of commerce with South American countries, resulting from the reciprocity policy of the last admlnls tratlon and have practically concluded to discontinue discriminating duties im posed on coffea and sugar produced Ir Venezuela, Haytl, and the United Statct of Colombia, the only three countries In South America which refused to en ter into satisfactory reciprocity ar- ranirements under the McKlnley law. It Is Bald the- president will revok' the proclamation issued by President Harrison. There Is good reason to believe tin senate will soon come to an agreemen upon the question of organization am as soon aa that is done the matter o) final adjournment will bo speedily dls Dosed of. It is understood that the rc publican suggestion that the democratf iro ahead and organize with the under standing that the new officials shali not take hold until later, is meetlnr with favor among those democrats whr were so much in opposition to tha'. course.

Washington, April 4. The assistant secretary of state has been directed b; secretary Gresham to examine mor thoroughly than has been customarj Into the personnel of the state de partment with a view, it is understood of determining the fitness of employei for the positions held by them. It la re ported on good authority that tradltioi and precedent will not obtain In th state department during the incumber cy of Secretary Gresham and that there witl bo less red tape and greater dis patch of business hereafter. Secretary Hoke Smith has already be gun to carry Into effect his policy ol dispensing with the services of all in competent clerks In his department and those appointed for political reasons. Under the directions of Chief Clerk Wardle the individual record of the cler ical force of tha census office Is being thoroughly examined and all clerks found to be deficient are to be dis missed. Twenty-nine clerks . were dropped from the rolls today and oth er are likely to follow. It Is Secretary Smith's belief that the work of the cen. bus should be completed by the end of the calendar year without asking an additional appropriation from congress, but to do this he is convinced that there must be not only economy, but each employe must do good and efficient work. It is understoc(d also that the clerical force of the general land office will soon undergo a process of renova tlo after which some attention will be given to the pension and other bureaus with a view to putting them on a pure ly business basis. Mr. Myers speaks very confidently of Oregon making a creditable exhibit. From all sections the reports are com ing of Increasing enthusiasm among ex hibitors and those Intending to vlBlt. He wishes nothing that he may say, however to have tha effect of relaxing effort In pushing forward the work of preparing exhibits, and getting them promptly In place. , Mr. Myers wishes the press of the state generally to call the attention of the people to assist In the plan of establishing an Oregon Headquarters, In the business center of the city for the convenience of visitors, es a place where they may meet and entertain their business acquaintances and friends, and find all the Informa tlon and facilities for properly locating theinselvee in Chicago during their stay. It Is a matter of regret to the commission that their appropriation will not permit the maintenance of this necessary auxiliary to give the state a good representation and advance in Its Interests among the business people among v.hom great benefits to the state are certainly to result Such an organ isation has been formed, and has re ceived tho endorsement of the commis sion. Membership to this association Is fixed at a nominal price and every visitor will find It a pleasure to belong to the same even if not a real neces sity. "The objects of the organization," saldtr. Myers, "can only be fully car- carried out by a generous and prompt response to the filling up of Its member ship roll." CORRESPONDENCE: Tbe opinions of correspondents are their ova. No communication appear- ins in this column necessarily voioea tho belief of the paper itself. The Astorlon: ' I, Samantha, havn't taken my pen In hand for some time. But I see there Is considerable being Bald about licensing gambling. Now, as I can't quite under stand, Mr. Editor, (I am very Ignorant of the ways of the city government) Just how the license law will be en forced If the prohibition law cannot be enforced. Will you please make this point a little plainer for such as Saman tha? If the increased reveTme does not en ter into the argument, then let the city council first pass a preamble to the or llnance' something like the following: "Whereas, the question of dollars and cents does not Influence us In the de cision of the question of licensing gam-, bllng, therefore be It Resolved, That all revenue raised by Mils means shall pass into the hands f a committee selected by the council who shall distribute It among needy families of tho gambler and the drung rd." Now if tho city council will first pass some such preamble and resolution and then pass the ordinance to license gam bling, Samantha will think the ques tion of dollars and centa cuts no figure tn, the cao. One thing more, fiamantha has a vision: Clang! Clangl Fire! Fire! Where Is the fire? Scream after scream Is heard. The crowd ruch here and ;here and separate only to make way Tor the mad dash of the engine. On and on the crowd and engine rush with lesporate frenzy. Suddenly the cry comes, the bank, the bank Is on fire! ' But see! see those two men outrunning everybody elso In their struggle to reach the bank. What means this sa loonlst and minister both with mad dening speed trying to reach the burn ing building? The fairly push one an other aside In their struggle. They en ter the building, cracking, creaking ana roaring In angry fury, while the crowd wait in hushed suspense to know what it means. But here they come, the min ister leanlnsr on the arm uf his son, who In a rear room was busy over the books, and In his absorption in his work hau not noticed the danger ha was In; and here coines the saloonlst clinching his bag of gold that he hod snatched from the burning building. Moral See Sunday Herald, April 2, page 1, column 5vVcry sincerely, SAMANTHA," The "Chicago Inter-Ocean" was twenty-one years old lost week, and celebrates its coming of age by a sixty page, 420-column issue, a marvel In merit as well as In magnitude. We re ceived this. The "Inter-Ocean" has won Its great success by honest methods and honest merit, and it deserves not only the praise, but the emulation of all real Journalists faithful to the duties and obligations of their calling, and not led astray by the latter-day catclt penny scemes which obtrude them selves on a long-suffering and sorely tried public. To Mr. William Peim N,ixon and Mr. Leander H. Crall, his New York representative, much credit Is due for the steady and sturdy work which they have done for years In is fense of correct methods in businens and of sound republican principles In politics, and they will receive cordial congratulations from thefx fellow workers all over tho country on their success, deserved and ponsplcuous. The purely statistical mind will furthermore possibly be Interested to know that the amount of paper printed for the birth day "Inter-Ocean" was 176,000 pounds, or 87 1-2 tons. The number of copies of the paper was 200,000,each consisting of sixty pages, making the total number of pages 12,000,000. These poges.placed in proximity with each other, tho one after the other," would extend over 2, 108 miles. The number of columns was 84,000,000, and If pasted together end to end they would reach 14,758 miles. There were 398 columns In each paper, which, If pasted end to end, would reach over 750 feet. The advertising measures 428 feet. THE ASTORIAN'S AGENTS. In Astoria J. R. Rannells Is author ized to take and collect subscriptions.
