The entire "Ring Democratic" ticket,
was elected at Duumore on Tuesday by
a small majority. Tho battle was on
of tho hardest ever fought for munici
pal control, and the loss sustained by
the victors is great. Tho Republicans
by their untiring zeal and energetic
campaign have cut wide swaths in the
ranks of tho ring rulers and for that
fact they are rejoicing beou.se it aug
urs well for tho ruture. Although th
anticipations of tho most sanguine
reformurs were not realized, there
is a satisfaction in the result
that has never before been felt.
Dnggan was tdectod burgess by a m i
1 jority of liOU, a decrease of OOU from his
, majority last year. This iu itself is an
assurance that reform bus got to come.
, The other ru ijoritio.s also ran below the
; usual amount The Republican lead
ers attribute their defeat to the sursr
bugaboo whiah was worked by tha
Democrats for all it was worth. Huo
dreds of Republicans remained nt homo
because they were misled by the pre
varications that liavii won the day for
"ring rule." Every possible stress was
brought to bear to convince that th
sewer question was without foundation
but to no avail mid they would not
vote. The day will long bo remsmber
j od as a most exciting one In several
places the contest became so warm that
fists were freely used. A largs Italian
'vote was polled, much to the chagrin
of the Democrats, who did wvsrythiug
in their power to preveut the sons of
Sunny Italy from casting their votes
i for good L'overmuent. The Italians hid
their citizen's papers made out with
their names translated into English and
were assessed under their nutive tongue
pronunciation of their eootuomens. This
led to considerable difficulty aud tho
! Italians were debarred. TheRepnbli
I cans grasped the .situation and Attorney
I Watson was sent for, who proceeded to
secure evidence in order to make a test
case. The Democrats seeing their
mistake, immediately sent for the
Italians they had refused their rights to
uud allowed them to vote. In every
district the tickets were so badly split
that it was in tho "wee sm hours"
before the election b ards were done,
so that the netting of correct returns
i wss impossible until yesterday morn
1 ing. That the reformers are far from be
: iog beaten is evidenced by the fact that
' already they are considering plans to
retaiu tho strong position they have
I captured and farther instruct them
i selves so that another eleotion will
j witness the extermination of this "ring
; rule." The ticket elected is as follows:

1 asked the poetess to composts a few
I verses. In fifteen minutes she had
written that widly known hymn which
is a solace to many a Christian heart,
"Safe in the Arms oT Jesus " This
and many other hymtiB have given her
n wor d wide reputation.
The followingjrei'ilutiona, interspersed
with singing selections from her
well known hymns will bit rendered:

who had been induced to attend a
church social, and qn ber return she
was grested by a msrry crowd of her
voung frieuds who had assembled dur
ing her absence. Her surprise on en
tering can better bo imagined than
described. Dtnciog was indulged in
until midnight when an elegant colla

to Slect Council.
At the first meeting of telaet coun
cil. Mayor Connell will ssnd in a cam
inuntOAttOU asking that the jiropoted
npprouoh to tne Pittston avnu- bridge
be changed. The change contemplated
will not lengthen the bridge nor alter

unanimous in their opinion that tae
change is d.-sirahle.
ltitrne Hint Mr. Piatt has offered
to sell a strip of land sixty feet wide to
the city, which strip is intended a u
OOUttOUatioo of Spruce street. B;
tweon this new street and Piatt place
Mr. Piatt intends to leave a strip of
laud fifty fest in width, and it is feared
that the owner may be sordid enough
to endeavor lo sell this small tract for
business purposes, iu which event it
would be most disadvantageous to the
persons who havo erectsd handsome
residences on Piatt place.
To guard against such a contingency
the mayor will suggest that councils
enter into negotiations with Mr. Piatt,
asking that he give a strip of land
sixty feet in widtli running into Piatt
place. This won! 1 make an appro tch
to t Lin bridge 100 feet in width and wil 1

A COMMON SENSE VIEW.
Parks May B Legally Purchasid by tha
A gentleman thoroughly conversant
with city affairs and in eloae touch
with everything pertaining to rauoici
pal progress, speaking on the right of
the city to purchase land for parks,
said yesterday :
"The wording of the ant of 1889 in
relation to this matter is ns follows:
'To purchase, by and with thu couseut
of a majority of the qualified electors
obtained at an election held therefor.'
My conclusion is that a majority uf
qualified electors moans n majority of
the votes cast at the election, m ques
tion. By what other criterion is an
elector to be judged save by the exer
cise of the franchise.'.' Surely tne law
never intended that that particular
proviso shiuld be construed eo that a
majority of those registered should be
"Registration alone is no qualifica
tion in judgment. Tue only true quali
fication is the electors' exerc.se Ot the
right to vote In every ward iu this
city, or iu mmy wards varying, of
course, with the sizs of th e ward, there
are hundreds who should not ba regis
tered. Many of them are not even
naturalized while slill more ot them
never pay taxes. These are two essen
tial qualifications and how is it possi
bis to discern who is or who is not in
possession of thsrn?
"No. sir," concluded the speaker. "A
qualified elector is the man who votes.
Toe fact that he does vote is the best
proof as to his qu lliflcations. The fact
that many registered persons do not
vote would imply to any disinterested
person that they do not possess the nec
essary qualifications. This seems to be
clearly proveu by lhe fact that tuey do
not exercise the right so dear to all
Americana, th light to ragister tbeir
will by a judicious use of the ballot"
