Thomas Taggart Re-elected Mayor and the City Council Is Searly Unanimously Democratic. At the city election In Indianapolis yesterday, the Democrats cleaned the platters, electing- their entire city tlcfcet by majorities raoging from 2,500 to 4,500 an'd eighteen of the twenty-one councilmca. Tbe majority for Mayor Taggart will reach nearly 5.000, and considering the character of the fight made against the ticket tne result is better than Democrats anticipated. The Republicans were hopeful of carrying the" city.aod at least $25,000 changed hands on results. Ebody Shiel, ex- President Harrison's close friend,lost $7,000 betting against Tageart's election. The Democrats made gains in every ward in the city, electing councilmen in some wards that L>ave heretofore given the Republicans as high as 700 majority. Although the election passed off quietly, as all our elections do under the new system of voting, there was great anxiety as to what the result wouU be. Great crowds of people gathered early to hear the returns. The Sentinel says that "sucb another night has never oeen known at the close of a political campaign in Indianapolis. "Many enthusiastic Democrats had their wiveSj or sisters, or sweethearts with them, and the women were as heartily in accord with the spirit of the hour as their escorts, for their voices could be frequently heard blended wltli the deep-toned voices of the men and the frequent waving of handkerchiefs could be seen as the chapters of the great story of a stupendous Democratic success were given in the bulletins." "As the returns came in regularly and were displayed, showing almost invariably democratic gains in many precincts where the most hopeful democrats had expectrd uo gains, the enthusiasm of the crowd came as a quick and tremenduous response in hoarse cries that rent the air and could be heard clocks away. "It was a significant thing that whenever the portrait Of William Jennings Bryan was flashed before the great concourse it touched the democratic heart, for it- was invariably greeted with tremendous and prolonged cheers." RA1LROAU BREVITIES. Short Items of Interest Gathered From Many Sources. Conductor John Kailsback is entertaining his mother, who resides at Richmond. Fireman William Collect has been taken from the extra list and given a regular engine. Mr. J. 0. Potts, assistant master carpenter of the Panhandle, is in the east, visiting friends and relatives.

F., will give their annual' dance at the rink on Thanksgiving night, Nov. 24th. The Vandalia turned over to the Panhandle twelve car loads of Putnam county cattle yesterday for the Chicago market.

Willis Thome, Panhandle operator, is building a handsome residence on east North street and will occupy it when completed. General Manager Loree, of the Pennsylvania lines, it is said, will visit Lima In the very near future to Investigate whether or not the Pennsylvania is being boycotted at that point. Within the last month forty or more freight brakemen on the Missouri Pacific ha^e been dismissed lor accepting money from tramps whom they permitted to ride on their trains. William Loftus, son of David Loftus, has secured a position as freig-ht brakeman on the C. B. & Q. railroad, with headquarters at Chicago. He was formerly employed by the Panhandle company. The Chicago &Southeast»rD, which extends from Lebanon to Anderson, is now certain to be extended to Muncte. A block of property at Anderson, which stood in the way of extending the track across the Panhandle, was lately secured by the road, thus giving the outlet so long desired. An investigation of the Railroad Gazette leads to the conclusion that to pat the rolling stock of the railroads of the United States on a nor- mar basis of efficiency the orders to commercial builders in th« year 1887 must amount to 2,342 locomotives, 97,246 freight cars and 6,400 passenger cars. Alfred W. Van Steenberg, of the Panhandle round house, will soon join the bans of matrimonial bliss. His choice is the charming daughter of County Recorder J. W.Wright—Miss Etta. The groom is erecting a handsome cottage on east North street, and when completed the marriage will take place. It is asserted, on what appears to be good authority, that when the winter time schedule goes into effect 02 the Wabash road next mostb, the local freight runs will be changed back to where they were last winter —one crew from Andrews to Fort Wayne and return, and two crews between Andrews and Lafayette. The long hours on the present runs bave made it almost impossible to retain men in the train service. ADDITIONAL ITEMS Visit Otto Shoe Co. Saturday. Fancy tomatoes, 19 bu. at Foley's. O. P.

Gordon, Solicitor of Patents, Spry.BIock ThKg-hi Sh» *Ti» Tired Waltlnc- The Clark street store was almost deserted, for it was too pleasant an. evening for people to go purchasing. The proprietor had gone home, after telling the young man to close up at 8, and the you-ng man was now sitting Jdly near 'the door, gazing amiably upon the new cashier, an extremely pretty girl. Three small newsboys trotted past the door. They noted the idle young man and the moonstruck glances •which he continued to shoot at the cashier. They halted a.nd held consultation. Presently the young man arose, went to the little pulpit in which the cashier was ensconced an-d lean- Ing upon the counter began to chatter. This was the cue for the newsboys. "•Say. mister!" howled the smallest of the three. "Say, mister! Coin' to kiss her?" The young man jumped as if hit wfch a tomato and the young lady's face turned, lobster pink. A moment's silence followed. The conversation was renewed, somewhat hesitating!}'. "Say, mister!"—another voice from outside—"when are you goin' to kiss her?" The young man and the cashier were purple with embarrassment and mortification. People 1 passing by stopped to laugh at them. The boys said nothing more and the young man cleared his throat fcr another bit of conversation. "Say, mister!" from the third boy, "why doncher kiss her?" She's tired waitin'." The cashier put on her wraps mud the young man, with many lurid remarks, closed up the store. E»«y Down Kant Stamp Qrubbing:. This is the way one of Caribou's progressive farmers clears land: He has a portable fence which he can move around without r.uch inconvenience, and he encircles :' stump with it, placing within the inclosure two of his biggest hogs. Then he goes to ^ work with a crowbar and makes some' holes around the stump, filling the holes with corn, or oats or buckwheat, whatever he has handy, and the animals get in their work. In the course of a few days the hogs have so rooted the AM from the stump that it is an easy Job to tip it over and take it away.—Kennebec Journal. , Where It I*.
