Curry Milwaukee by Greatly Hedmied Majorities Over Last year— Womnn 8affTA |:e—A Democratic Victory at Kansas City—Klectlons In Kansas Towns—Voting in Rhode Island To. Day. MILWAUKEE , April 0.—The election throughout Wisconsin yesterday was watched with great interest by politi cians, as it was the first election of consequence since the Democrats \inder the leadership of Governor Peek, wrestled the state from the Republicans. The principal interest of course centered in Milwaukee city and county, which Governor Feck carried by about 7,000. Yesterday Mayor Somers (Democrat), was chosen by 3,201 plurality and the balance of the Democratic ticket; with-tho exception of the candidate for the municipal court clerkship, pulled through with majorities running from 3,300 to 12. Frank Woller (Republican), for municipal clerk, was elected by 1,215 majority. Two years ago the average Democratic majority in the city and county was G,800. Yesterday it was 1,400. In the state party lines wero not closely drawn and the vote has been 1 as usual in spring elections. '' ' The Contest In Louisiana. ST . Louts, April 0. —A special dispatch from New Orleans says: The city of New Orleans has been in a state of the wildest political excitement all day over the action of the committee of seven at the Democratic returning board, in counting out MeEnCry at the primary election and counting in Foster,, anti-lottery candidate. Although there will only be one Democratic ticket in the field, there will be two hostile factions and committees. The Foster people will try and placate the McEnery Democrats, but as there are only two weeks before the election this will be difficult, and the chances are that the bitterness will hot be healed by that time, but that many thousands of Democrats will refuse to vote, making the contest between Foster and Leonard, Republican, a close one. The Chicago Election. CHICAGO , April 0.—According to the latest returns the next council will eon- tain thirty-three Republicans, thirty- two Dembcrats and three Independ onts. The latter practically affiliating with the Democrats. Of the thirty-four new aldermen elected, nine are at present members of the council. Five of the holdover members of the council whose terms will not expire for a year are recently indicted. Of the other four indicted boodlers, only one, Daniel Robeson, was a eanflldate for re-election, and he was defeated by majority of over 600. W. Roth was defeated by over 1 ;000 votes. Democrats Carry Kansas City KANSAS CITY , April 6.—The Democrats made a clean sweep here yester day electing their entire ticket with the exception of one candidate for the upper house. Both branches of the council are Democratic. The majorities ranged from 700 to 1 ,600. Democrats Successful In Missouri. ST. LOUIS , April fi.—The Democrats were successful in Missouri yesterday except in Republican strongholds, where the latter kept their forces in tact. In a majority of cases, however, the contests were on purely local issues, polities being obliterated. Un der the Australian system the elections crnor Campbell, Governor Russell of Massachusetta,ex-Secrotary of the Navy Tracy, and Congressman Burrows of Michigan, have all been pressed into service in behalf of the two parties during' the past few weeks. Both sides are sanguine of victory. Special missionary work has been done by both parties anfong the Hebrew-Americans, and also among the Frenoh-Canadians. Tho Democrats claim that they will carry not only tho state ticket but also the legislature. To do this It will be necessary for thorn to carry the cities of Providence, Pawfcucket, Woonsocket and Newport. The first three are Democratic beyond a doubt. Newport, however, is more likely to go Republican, The indications are that a heavy vote will be pollod. The Senate. WASHINGTON , April 0.—After tho preliminary morning business, Mr. Morgan at 12:30 called up his silver resolution, offered yesterday, and yielded to Wolcott, who proceeded immediately to address the senate on the subject of silver, beginning with the blunt statement that the silver bill had been put to sleep in the house and the senate might as well face the truth on the silver question. Wolcott soon launched an attack upon the administration. Ho admitted that the silver men had suffered defeat in both houses, and charged that it had been encompassed by the administration, the first great force which had left no stone unturned in its efforts to defeat the silver bill. It appeared to desire to avoid tho embarrassment of action upon the question before the national convention was held. He asserted that the Republican party with negative unanimity would re­ nominate the present executive, because no other man of greater statue could be found to stand. Tho Democratic party would renominate an apostle of tariff reform whose vision saw no other issue, and who was will ing to be consecrated again to public office. So the great mass of the people were unrepresented by any party. He [Mr. Wolcott] charged that the administration had cracked the party lash and had succeeded, but there would be a to-morrow. It was a humiliating spectacle and the administration should at least have allowed congress to express its opinion without duresH. Wolcott wound up his speech with an eloquent peroration, and was applauded by both senators and spectators. Attention had been paid to the whole speech, which was delivered with great force, although mostly from manuscript. The senate chamber was much fuller than usual and every senator gave (a most unusual thing) his undivided attention to the speech. At its close Mr. Morgan's resolutions went over without action, (they are still on the calendar) and the senate resumed consideration of the Indian approprla- '' u bill. , • BURNED TO DEATH.

PROVIDENCE , R. I., Anril 0.—One of the most heated political campaigns in the history of "Little Rhody" cahie to a close laBt night, and to-day the voters are recording their predilections at the polls. The officials to bo selected are governor, lieutenant-governor, attorney-general, secretary of state, state treasurer, and also a legislature. Th present administration is Republican, and both sides have made a more energetic campaign than has been witnessed in this state since the overturn of the Republicans' in 1887. Ex-Speaker Reed, Governor McKinley, ex-President Cleveland, ex-Gov- .FInine-8oekers in Oklahoma. KINGFISHER , O. T., April 0.—The ex citement continues.

Last night a surveying corps came in from the new county seat of county C having completed tho sur >y. Kingfisher and El Reno, distrib- ting points for the new counties, are overrun with robbei-s and thieves. Yesterday a mart was robbed by pickpockets by daylight, and last night an gent of the associated press was robbed of his money and transportation. Gambling dives are running wide open day. and night, and officials seem powerless to enforce the law. .Sunday Openings of the World's Fair. WASHINGTON , April 0.—The question of the Sunday openings of the world" fair was the subject of hearing to-day by tlie house committee on the world' Columbian exposition.

FORT MADISOH , April 0.—A frightful calamity occurred last uight in the west end of this city by which nine people lost their lives. At 3524 Santa Fe avenue stood a two- story building owned byS. V. Kitchen. The tipper story was used as a dwelling by the owner, and the lower was occupied by the general store and meat market of Mcintosh A. Pease. At l:4r> p." in. the building was discovered to be on fire, an alarm was given and the fire department turned out. About two minutes after the fire was discovered, a terrific explosion shook tho building and the flames burst Out fu- iously. It is supposed that some kegs f gunpowder stored in the building exploded and destroyed the narrow stairs leading" Inside of the building from the second story, and thus shutting- out all hope of escape. The fire burnedorapidly, the nearest connections being several blocks distant. The unfortunates were S. V. Kitchen, 35 years; Mrs. S. V.

Hot coal and steam covered the five men in the cab and they were thrown In all directions. five hundred journalists and pTJfblic? men were imprisoned, trade Was dead, and the finamws of the country were wrecked.
