Probably nothing can be said that will give-any different view of the situation than is now held by the votes Republicans are urged to go to the polls and- vote. Those independent voters whose interests or friendship leads them to support one or more candidates on the Republican ticket are entitled to credit if success is attained at any point. There is no reason why there should be a Democratic majority in city affairs but there always has been and it can not be overcome except by independent voting. The Journal hopes that those who have determined to aid men on the ticket will do all they can to promote their interests. JOHN QUIIX used a column and a lalf of the Journal's valuable space yesterday, setting forth reasons why voters in general, and working-men in particular, should cast their ballots for Mr. Webster, for Mayor. Notwithstanding this very pronounced and somewhat pompous endorsement of Mr. Webster, the Pharos has it, upon the very best authority, and challenges Mr. Quill to prove the contrary, that he. Mr. Quill, will not himself vote for Mr. Webster for Mayor.—Pharos. Mr. Quill lives just beyond the city limits and .of course cannot' vote for Mr. Webster. The Pharos purposely attempts.to create a wrong impression by suppressing that fact. SWEPT BY FLAMES. | ' ' STATE .NEWS. Great Devastation in the Timber Lands of Michigan. Entire Counties Burned Over—Fears of a Loss of Life—The Fires in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. THE complete exposure of the Democratic scheme appears in the Journal this morning. This is the same old trick, and every attempt will be made o make tt as successful as ever. It is o be hoped that for once it will fool nobody. THE Pharos is much worried about he labor vote. The Democratic oon- ention sat down 'on every labor can- idate that appeared before it. No onder theJPharos is worried. XarHT Picture*.

BLAXI.VG PORKSTS IX MtCmGAX DKTI:OJT, Midi., May 4. — Fires broke out in the forest back of Harrison, Clare eount}', Tuesday, and since then have been spreading in all directions.

Around Johnson burg and Ridge way the fires are raging furiously, hut the timber and low mountain growth does not come in close to the towns and they are not in imminent danger. Down on the middle division of the Philadelphia & Erie railroad the mountains are full of fire, and while it is very disagreeable traveling the mountains, othey are a weird and grand scene at night. Game including deer, is chased in herds into small lumbering towns. REAUIXG, Pa., May i—The heavy shower which fell Sunday morning did more than the bands of men who have been fighting the fire on the Blue mountains could accomplish in the last three days.

The open tors refused to treat with the committee and after several attempts to get tog-ether the matter was referred back to a meeting- held Sunday mornin"- at which a large body of miners resolved to back up the previous action of the union.

Welch, charged with assault and battery on Samuel Smith. The plaintiff is a country boy who got into the game and some dispute over the game led to an assault by the young toughs on Smith, who, taking- them one at a time, could probably have "done up" the crowd, but being- overpowered by „ — 'licking" .and several nasty cuts from a razor. Constable Orr succeeded in ' arresting- young- Welch, but the others made good their escape. These boys, with- the exception of Stemler, are. the young fellows who were sentenced in the Circuit Court for larceny, but discharged on their good * behavior. Welch was taken before Squire Smith and lined $5 and costs, in default' of which he is in jail. The remaining members of the gang- will probably be arrested to-day. "Buck" Stanley"atTAdamsboro. J. B. Stanley began a series of gospel temperance meetings at Adamsboro last night the same to continue until next Sunday evening.
