The Republicans ot the city netn Con
vention at tlie Court House on Saturday
night, and placed la nomination tlie follow

Recorder, N. J. Henton ; for Marshal, A.

Counctlmen 1st Ward, Judge Blackburn ;

On the same evening, the Democracy
met at the Opera House and nominated

Marsiiai, Cal. Burkhart ; lor Trensurer,
Louis Mi'ler i Council men 1st Ward
Frank Par ton ; 2d Ward, W. B. Scott ;
3d Ward, J. S. Clark, Sr.
The election was held on Monday, and
after a hard fight, and all kinds of twist
tug and pulling, the Republicans came out
on top, electing tlie Mayor, Recorder,
Marshal, and Councilincit In the First and
Thin! Wards, while the Democracy bare
ly got to the top " with tlie Treasurer and
one Councilman. However, we are sorry
tn lose the Treasurer, who Is a first class
man and a Republican clear through, as
well as the candidate for Councilman in
the Second Ward, who would have made
an excellent, carrlul officer, no doubt ; at
the same time our sorrow is somewhat
assuaged from the fact that the gentlemen
who succeeded to tlie places are men who
stand high in their party, and have proved
competent In place of trust heretofore. 1
Last year. It will b? remembered, the
Republicans elected the Mavor, Marshal
and Treasurer, while the Democrats elect
ed tlie Recorder. Tlie Democracy also
elected four Couiiciitiieu out of six. As
there were two Republicans ahl one
Democratic holdovers, the next Council
will stand tour Republicans and two Dem
ocrats. Ami this has been the way the
thing lias ruu in the Council tor years, one
year four Democrats two Republicans ;
the next year, it any change, was four Re-
publicausto two Democrats. It U entirely
owing to the legislation of the new board
whether the Republicans hold power
longer than the year 1SS1. We believe
the Council, as it will be composed atter
January next, will be one of tlie strongest
and most careful, and will be particularly
solid on all questions affecting the future
Interests ot this city.
Hurrah for our side.
