THE EARTHQUAKE ERA. THE GLOBE IN ONE OF IIS CON­ VULSIVE PERIODS. Something About the Kui'lhiuiike» That nave' devastated the Worlil In the I'ast—Tlie Wonderful Volcano of illanna Lots in the Sandwich Islands. To feel the very ground shaken is as if God himself had changed his eternal attributes. Yet the records .show that the earth does lose its fixity, and that so often that one might well eixpect the people of some regions to look upon it as an ordinary event in life. Disregarding the mythical accounts of cities swallowed up, continents sunk beneath the waters as the lost Atlantis, and nations destroyed in a clay, we find in authentic his­ tory numerous instances of earthquakes so destructive that the mind is appalled at the bare fuel*. In the great earthquake, followed by tidal waves, which desolated the Roman empire in Hie year .524, it was supposed that half a million people perished. The coasts of Greco-, Italy and Africa were greatly c'liiii ei! tho sea, retiring, left the b...

THE ALERT. •FFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUITY THE CITY ELECTION. A Large Vote at The Foils—Three Aldermen Elected and a Tie Vote on The Fourth. The City Election. The city election yesterday'will be one long to be remembered. Mr. Allen and 3u8 ticket made a gallant struggle, but a useless one, against the overwhelming numbers swung by Mr. Graham. The •vote was, no doubt, the largest ever polled in the city, alone, and the repeat­ ed challenges and swearing in of men in­ dicate how busy it kept the judges and «lerks. Superintendent Graham's friends worked unremittingly, pulling strings that were never touched before, and the Keult must be naturally regarded with pride and eclat by them. Many inci­ dents at the polls throw but little credit upon the clay and are best unreported. The temperance reform advocates claim the greatest of satisfaction for the victory, and the gathering in tliG evening evinced ftid happiness to many thereby. It may or may not have been a matter of good taste o...

Chicago, March 31.—It is ascertained at the democratic headquarters this morning that Carter H. Harrison will head the city ticket Tuesday. The party is full of divisions. There are factions at each street corner. Charlie Kern, chair­ man of the Cook county club, and his followers are said to be laying low, wait­ ing for Harrison to take the nomination, and thon knife him. The government building crowd is divided. The post office people are against Harrison,because W. C.

& & WEEKLY ALERT. Temporary Water Maiua Now that the artesian well is gushing forth its crystal liquid at the rate of ten barrels per minute without any apparent cessation, the city council should not loose a moment in utilizing the flow as soon as possible. Two thousand feet of four inch pipe could be laid on Fifth av­ enue at a small cost and thus insure temporary fire protection for the business portion of the city, at least, and supply the business houses along that street with water for sprinkling purposes. This pipe could later on be used for mains on side streets. It could be tapped at each street corner for hose. It has been figured that the cost of two thousand feet of pipe which would carry it from the well to the armory along Fifth avenue would be abput §1,000. If the city is to get- the benefit of the well, this is the only way at present in which it can be had, without granting a franchise. The temporary laying of pipe which can be utilized again in permanent im...
