WHAT THE WARDS DID. In Gome inBtanceB tho vote in tho primaries was ox - coodingly close between the deal and auti deal tickets. This waa particularly tho case iu tho localities whero tho Worth - Loich men made tho most strenuous exertions exertions and expected to win. In the Third Ward General General Jourdan maintained a firm hold on a majority of tho voters, although his ticket only defeated tho one put forward by the Lowia - Larkin faction by majorities ranging from as to 80 votes. The Fourth Ward waa carried by tho Hopkins - Dady ticket with tho exception of a few names that were scratched. A majority of the BUCcesBful candidates are believed to be Worth mon. Charges of fraud have boen made which may reault in the conto9t being carried to the General Com - tuittco. Alderman Dave Stewart and his friends swept the Seventh Ward in tho interest of tho Jourdan - Mc - Lean - Daggett faction, although Messrs. Burtis, Fitchio and R. B. Leech opposed them with a strong ticket. Auditor Auditor Ammerman and Eph. Roberts were beaten iu tho Eleventh Eleventh by the adherents of Stophen M. Griswold, Bill Stewart, Stewart, E. B. Fowler and others who opposed the deal. Tho Thirteenth Ward waa as usual controlled by the Loay craft elements. Mr. Worth captured tho Fourteenth Ward, but in the Fifteenth the element lod by Hubbard HendrickBon, Billy Allison and Iko I.awroneo defeated Alderman Smith and Treasurer Mitchell. In the Sixteenth Sixteenth and Soventeonth wards the deal men had plain Bailing. Thoy encountered a setback in tho Eighteenth Ward, whero Charley Godard rallied tho opposition forces, and drovo tho deal men into obscurity. Tho Ninoteonth Ward went solidly against tho dealers, thus adding another to the laurols acquirod by Mr. Daggett as a skillful manipulator. Tho deal question did not enter definitely into tho Twentioth Ward conteBt. There the struggle was between between the friends of Alderman olect Roberts and tho Hon. William W. Goodrich upon one side, and those of Aldorman French and Senator elect Schroedor on tho other, the rosult being the dofeat of the French - Schroodor mon by a majority of 175 out of a total of 005 votes. Tho General Committeo delegation from this ward is a tio as between tho two factions, but a majority majority of its mombera are bolievod to bo opposed to the deal. In tho Twenty - first, Twenty - third and Twonly - fifth wards, whore Police Commissioner Leich directed the operations of tho deal meui the latter wore unsuccosfnl. Darwin R. James lod tho successful ticket In ths.Twenty - first. Iu tho Twenty - third tho supporters of Assembijmau Tallmadge and Supervisor Nathan wore overthrown by the Ellintt - Seaman - Fishor element. The Twenty - fifth Ward, Commissioner Commissioner Leich's own bai.'iwick, rejected the Loich - Powera' ticket to the surprise of tho victors as wo 1 as the defeated. General JourJau'a friends hold their own iu the Twenty - second Ward, under the leadership of Alderman Fritz and defeated the opposition led by J. H. Kcnible, Collector Tanuor aud S. B. Dutcher. Tho Tenth Ward also returned a Jourdan victory. Of the delegates Just oloctod to tho Genoral Committeo throughout the county a majority aro anti - deal men, aud a majority of thoso who hold over maintain a similar similar attitudo. A prominent Republican nianagor to - day Informed the writer that if tho ontiro committee had been elected at tho recent primaries the authors of tho now deal w mid not have secured twenty delegates, w':oro they now might linvo as many as fifty votes out o. the 138. He was of the opinion that harmony ought to bo secured if possible, but said it was impossioiu to attempt it so long as the doalora refused to listen to such a proposition.
