IT WAS A FAMOUS VIC/ TORY > Of the People, for the People and by the People,;, MTIKE'S MAJORITY IS 225. result was at once spparnnt, Tho dan. gor of supporting the saloon keepers' candidate was at once unrolled, and the rush to M'Plko's standard was increased, the Manner man became alarmed at tho efteot,and attempted an explanation through tho Democrat, the EnghsTi organ of the saloon combination, but thn explanation WIIB as bad as the origi nal articles und had no offfct In turning back the tidal wave. The people h$vo spoken; they have declared in.favor.of progress and improvement: they .have declared fdrlttw \ and order: have rebuked tho dictation of the saloon element in city affairs, ' The change in the jtwwnncK of tho Council Is as fortunate for tho city as the result of tho election for Mayor. It is not all that could be wished but all that could be hoped for at once. There will be enough substantial, represent* live business men in that body to control its action, and we can now took forward to wise legislation in the interest of tho people. ' Taken all in all it is a grtat victory for Alton. It is a promise of prospen- ity. It gives hope for the future, It says to our young men: "stay at homo, an Alton boom is belter than a Kansas boom and much nearer at hand." KOTBS. At.TON'8 BOOM HAS COM- MENOED. Progressive Mayor and Council. Tho Saloon Combination Snowed Under. The Alderman elect are: Armstrong, Thornton, Schweppe, Roper; Hewitt, Fries and Herb .—A tie vote in Fifth ward.—Ward for Clerk; McKinney, Treasurer; Yager,, Attorney. THE CITY ELECTIOS. The city election yesterday was a contest between the progressive element of the city ou the one hand, and the conservative element on the other, the latter having the support of the saloon combination and ' ouv lawless city administration. It was a hard contest and 1 the victory was nobly won. The saloon.combination had men and carriages at every poll, worked like Trojans and spent money freely in Joost- ing's interest, and have had their labor for their pains. Mr. M'Pike was the nomipee of tho Republican convention, which put him forward as the representative of the progressive element of tho. city. . • The Democrats made no party nomination for Mayor, but a faction of thai party put forward Mr. F. W. Joosting as their candidate. Directly after the candidates for Mayor were placed in the field the issue dividing the two began to develop. It did not divide strictly on party lines < but ou local issues, and within a week from the. holding of the convention Mr. M'Pike was being supported by the Republicans and the progressive Democrats, and Mr. Joes ting by the conservative element of the Democracy and the city administration. Another factor next appeared in the contest: the saloon clement taking alarm at the strength and popularity of Mr. M'Pike, and .fearing that they would not. be able to control the new administration as they had the last, combined together raised funds and went into the fight to control the election. Their organ, the 2?a»»er,published inflammatory articles denunciatory of Mr. M'Pike, declaring in favor of "tho cheerful Sunday" of continental .Europe and characterizing supporters of the Sunday laws and ordinances aa "hypocrites, phariseen and puritans." These articles were not intended for Amancan consumption, but the TELE. had them translated and the Law and order won. The saloons forced the light and met with a Waterloo. '•The Democratic "bolters" were big ger than the "party." -.. The Alton Banner helped in the light by throwing "boomerangs." If the laws are right let them be enforced, if wrong repeal them. The people, generally, hope that the election will hove the effect to eliminate the saloons from city politics. ' Disregard of law tends toward anarchy, a foreign exotic that the American people will crush at every opportunity. i There was large increase in the vote of the Fifth ward, 357 ballots being cast against 274 at the City election one year ago. It wns the verdict of the people In a fair and square fight between free whisky, a "free Sunday" on one side, nnd the moral element of the community on tho ether. The Democrat says that it wag a "great Republican victory," thus ruling out, tho voters who supported Uio law and order, progressive ticket. How much of a "party" is left?
