- MUNICIPAL. The Eesults of the Quadrangular Eepublioan Fight, The Extent or Commissioner Worth's Tic - tory His Friends Claim Thirty Votes Oat of Thirty - eight in the Kings County Delegation to the State Convention How General Jourflan Stands Meeting of the Board of City Works. The results of tho contest between the rival Republican factions on Tuesday ' night have become more fully known, now that the smoke has cleared away from the battle field. The triumph of Commissioner Worth seems to have been complete enough to justify the predictions he made upon the evs of the struggle. If the assertions of his friends are true, General Jour - dan owes his escape from defeat to Mr. Worth, whose fight against the Daggett forces aided the General in all thewardBof the Second Congressional District. Mr. Worth hod no fight with General Jourdan ; his fight waa to beat Daggett, and if Jourdftn appeared to be in opposition with him at all, it was simply because the General stood In the light of a friend of the ex - Sheriff. Jourdan's interests centred in the Beoond Congressional Distriot, whioh his fronds insisted he should again represent on the state central Committee. He was contending to maintain his sr premacy over the Palmer - Henry faction and to continue a boss of the party. Worth was contending for a Bimilar result and he appears to have achieved oomplote suc cess. Somo of the politicians nave been saying that the Commissioner and tho General had entered into a com bination to carry the primaries. Mr. Worth says this is not so. A very closo friend declared to - day, that Jour dan sent for him three times for the purpose of making such a combination, but that tho Commissioner refused to form an alliance, knowing that he hod the game in his own hands. Mr. Worth Bald to an Eagle reporter" on Monday last, that he would oontrol twenty - olght out of tho thir ty - eight delegates to bo sent to tho State Convention, moaning that twenty - olght out of the thirty - eight would be in sympathy with him, and would bo inclined to vote as he might desire them to. This morning, a lead ing politician on tho Worth side of the house, in sum ming up the results of the prlmaries.sald to the reporter: THE EXTENT OF WOETH'S VICTORY "I see that the Eagle yesterday said that the Com missioner made some extravagant statements respecting tho number of delegates he proposed to have. Lot us see how that is ; but let me say at tho start, that I have been right on the inaido in this fight, and think I know what I am talking about. Worth predicted that the primaries in the wards of tho First Assembly District (First and Sixth) would turn out just as it did. He thought Sam McLean would be beaten. He will havo two of the delegates from that Assembly district, that is, men who will vote for any candidate for tho State Committee he may want them to. Now, take the Socond Assembly DiBtrict, which embraoes the Seoond and Fourth wards, The Second Ward is with him; it is in tho Second Con. greBBional District. He carried the Fourth Ward against Mike Dady. Dady counted npon the Fourth and upon going in with the Second, but he did not know that Worth had them both. There was a very fine little combination in the Fourth by which Mr. Dady was very handsomely laid out. Take the Third Assembly District. That is, the Third .and Tenth wards. That is Jourdan's distriot. Worth had bar gained on carrying the Tenth Ward; his men there told him they could; but if they had said thoy wore in doubt he could havo had it. At all events, we'll call that Jourdan'B district. Now, take the Fourth Assombly District, Fifth and Eleventh wards. He had tho two wards from the start.
