Citizens in Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, and Ohio Flock to the Polls. Election Quiet at Chicago, But a Full Vote Being Cast—Results of-Mon- ,d»y's Elections Elsewhere. CHICAGO, April 2.—Perfect weutber, with the thermometer a.-few degrees above the freezing point and plenty of bright sunshine, is coaxing the voters out in large numbers here Tuesday aud there is every probabili tythat a f-ul 1 vote will be recorded by both parties. The greatest interest is manifested in the mayoralty contest, which promises to be closely contested.- The candidates are Frank \Venter (dem.) and George U. ' Swift (rep.). Both Jire pledged to support the cause of civil service and municipal reform, if elected. Swift was defeated in the last election by Mayor Hopkins,, the present incumbent, • uiid the-election was contested but without favorable result for thecontestant. W'cnter.is said to be the candidate of the Hopkins faction in the present campaign. }t is expected several aldermen who have been accused of voting for corrupt measures will be retired to private life. The other offices to bt filled'are those of city treasurer, city attorney, city clerk and judge of the circuit' court. Voting Light at rtt. Loul>. ST. Louis, April 2.—Returns received up to noon show that less interest is manifested in Tuesday's municipal election than has been shown in similar elections during the past , decade. Only members of the fihouses of delegates and city council &&re being voted for, and not 75 per cent, of the total registered vote will be cast. The republicans are confident of electing five out of thu six members of the council by at least C.- 000 majority, and the lower branch of the cit-5' government will be equally divided between democrats and republicans. The weather is clear and cool. Killait In an Kloction Riot, In au election riot at noon Tuesday Frank Thorn was shot twice and fatally wounded by Frank Day. The murderer was arrested and taken to police headquarters. Tiu.'ru was employed as a watcher nt the polls to guard against illegal voting, ;ind was shot while in the discharge o£ his duty.
