Decatur, Ill., March 3—
There was a quadrilateral fight over the Mayorality in this city yesterday. R. H. Merriweather, T. J. Abel, F. J. Priest, the present Mayor, and A. W. Hardy being the contestants. Major Merriweather managed to get away with the balance and take his seat on a majority of seventy-three. The contest was not a political one.
