Mr. Mo ',, ; ,'^n»ld i» a foruaer Logansport boy J;* 5 * Ms Meads, are pleased at his '<***$' ad viltioe merit in his chosen Perhaps never before have the Democratic primaries excited so much interest in this city. The attendance in all the wards •was unusually large and the contest was close and exciting. Issues were made within the party and the struggle was between the high license and the low license men. The result is » victory for high license in all the wards except the First. .Two of the Councilmen who voted for high license remain in the Council and^ the election of Tousley and Berry, with the republican from the Fourth Ward or the election of their oppon- ants means five votes in the council out of the ten, and the ordinance cannot be repealed. Mr, Tousley, as is well known, has voted for high license, Mr. Berry has frequently expressed his views In favor of high license and was talked of by the high license men as an independent candidate on that question. The result of this contest with Republican candidates favoring high license means that that question has been settled and that individual preferences or party discipline will control the voting on election day. Assurance can be made doubly sure by the defeat of Gleitz in the First ward, but that is much easier said than done. The tax payers may congratulate themselves that this question in Eliminated from the contest and that, whoever is elected, the license will stand. FIRST WARD. The First Ward met at the engine house. Dennis Uhl was called to the chair, and Peter B. Smith -was made secretary. Nominations were called for and Gus Gleit-/,, J. H. Holbi-uner, Alex Burke and Ferdinand Scheuman were placed before the convention. The first ballot resulted as follows; Gleitz. 99; Holbruner, 95; Burke, 25: Sche'uman, 12. No nomination being made the two lowest names were dropped and the second ballot resulted as follows: GleiU, 94; Holbruner, 84. Many left the convention after the first ballot when it was seen that Holbruner was defeated and the second vote fell short. Charles Graffis and James Jackson were selected as an election board and voters were required to pass by a table and give in their names with their votes. Delegates were selected to the city convention and the convention adjourned. No motion-was made to make the nomination unanimous. SECOND WAKD. There were signs of a storm in the Second Ward—Boys of excited politicians gathered in groups of four or five, in the halls of the court house, and discussed the situation in whispers. Occasionally a gesture -would indicate a disagreement, but no loud language betrayed the subject of discussion. Mat Schneeberger called the convention to order. Mayor Cullen -was selected for chairman and and Henry Six for secretary. The nominations for councilman were called for by the chair, and Mr. Gru- Benmeyer placed the name of Gottleib Shaeffer before the convention and Dr. Thomas presented the name of Wils Berry. There being no other nominations balloting was declared in order and a motion was made and carried that those present be required to come forward and deposit the ballots in a hat placed upon a convenient table. The chairman requested that, all eomc forward and vote and that no one vote two ballots making a count of heads necessary. Eighty ballots were deposited in the hat and a count showed that Berrry had received 42 and Shaeffer 38. The nom- inotion was on motion made unanimous. The convention then selected delegates to the city convention and adjourned. THIRD "WARD. The Third ward assembled at the council chamber, Councilman Palmer was made chairman and Henry Brookmeyer, secretary. On motion M. C. Wade was nominated by (acclamation for councilman.

George Cheney and John Mulcahey were appointed inspectors and a ballot box was obtained, over which M. D. Fansler presided to pass on the loyalty of those voting. Amos B. Keeport was interrogated and on his refusing to state his principles his vote was thrown out. The Bingaman family underwent catechism and only one of them passed muster as truly loyal and unwashed. The voting and counting was slow but exciting. The result showed that Henry Tously was nominated in the hardest fight ever made in city politics. The vote stood: Tousley, 152; Meyer, 120—Touslcy's majority, 20. A resolution was passed favoring Mr. Thomas Austin for AVater Works trustee, and delegates were selected to the city convention.

Cyrus McPherson, the well known real estate agent, died at his room on Sixth street la^t evening at 7 o'clock, after a very brief illness of congestion of the lungs. He had been ailing for some days previously but was not compelled to leave his office and take to bed until Monday when his illness became alarming, and notwithstanding constant medical attendance death resulted as above. The deceased was 09 years of age and was well known throughout the city and county. He served a term as county treasurer during the '40s and was a very respected citizen. Some years ago he was divorced from his wife but strangely enough, on Tuesday, imagining death near, sent for the -woman from, whom he had been separated so long and the ceremony was performed which again united them in life, to be so soon separated again, this time by death.
