Re-Elected Mayor of Cleveland by
-'Golden Rule" Jones is Victorious For Fourth Term as Mayor
of Toledo, Running on a Nonpartisan Ticket.
Hinkle Defeated in Columbus Results in
, Other Ohio Municipalties.
Cleveland. April 7. While tho Re
publicans had material gains In tho
muntclpal elections in Ohio, they did
not securo many changes in the ad
ministiatlon of the cities. The most
notable exception was at Columbus,
where Mayor Hinkle (Dem.) Is suc
ceeded by Jeffreys (Rep.). The mayors
of all the leading cities except Colum
bus were re-elected. The'Republlcans
retained control of Cincinnati and the
Democrats of Cleveland, and Samuel
M. Jones was elected as an Independ
ent candidate for the fourth time as
mayor of Toledo.
In this city Mayor Tom L. Johnson
was le-elected by over 7,000. When
Hon. Tom L. Johnson arrived at the
'JIty hall In his red automoude he was
greeted by a wildly enthusiastic crowd
of 10,000 people. It was with tho
greatest difficulty that he entered the
municipal building. As tho mayor ap-
TOU L. johnsox
proached the City hall he was hailed
wildly as tho next govemor of Ohio.
The cry was taken up by the crowd
with tremendous force. The dofeat of
Ingalls in Cincinnati gives especial
significance to tho greeting to tho
mayor as tho next governor of Ohio.
The other Democratic candidates
elected In Cleveland were: Lapp, vlco
mayor; Madlgan, auditor; Baker, so
licitor; Cofflnberry, treasurer, Leslie,
Springborn and,Cooley, board of pub
lic service. Of 31 councllmen, returns
Indicate that 2G or 27 will be in sym
pathy with the mayor's policy, tho
number Including one or two Repub
licans who ran as Independents.
There are still 25 precincts to heat
There Is a diversity of opinion as
to the effect of these municipal elec
tions upon the next Republican nomi
nation for governor, but It Is conceded
that Mayor Tom L. Johnson of CleYO
land will now become a foimMable
candidate for the Democratic nomina
tion for governor a few months hencO,
and that tho Ingalls organization will
bo continued with a view to making,
him the opponent of Hnnna for thej
In Other Municipalities. ,
One of tho most noted gains of tho
Republicans was at Mansfield and of
tho Democrats at Springfield, where
local Issues controlled results, as, was
tho case In most of the changes.
The head of tho Republican tlckot
was also successful at Van Wert, Wil
mington, Athens, West Union, McAr
thur, Now Philadelphia, ML Gllead,

becomo graver In the University
towng.twhero the brutal treatment of

Tho workman of tho tobacco factories
havo joined in tho movement against
the authorities, and shouts ot "down

heard in the gtreots. Intermingled
with bitter cries against tho govern
