CITY OWNERSHIP ISSUE
Rolla Wells Reelected in St.
Louis Shumway Loses
Chicago, April 5. A political tor
nado yesterday overwhelmed one of
the most ruggedly unique leaders in
the country. Incidentally, the republi
can party met defeat in a memorable
effort to capture the mayoralty of Chi
cago. As a direct result the city is
officially committed to the policy of the
quickest possible cessation of private
franchises for public utilities. Munici
pal ownership is especially threaten
ing the street, car lines valued high up
in the millions.

After winning successively four re
markable biennial fights of the inde
pendents against the regular republi
can party organization here, John May
nard Harlan, son of Associate Justice
Harlan, of the United States supreme
court, was a loser as the republican
candidate for mayor. His defeat is at
tributed to an extraordinary whirl of
causes, starting with political revenge
and taking in a wide sweep, embrac
ing the most up-to-date socialism as a
factor. The victor is Judge E. F. Dunne,
Dtliilie'i Oresit Vote.
Judge Dunne was elected by a plu
rality of 24.21S, and he received a ma
jority of IM5 of all votes cast. He also
hail the distinction of receiving the
greatest vote ever cast in Chicago for
a candidate for mayor. He was given

John F. Smulski, republican city at
torney, was reelected by nearly 15,000
votes. Other candidates on the demo
cratic ticket were elected by plurali
ties somewhat smaller than Dunne.
Frederick W. Block! was elected city
treasurer and Adrian C. Anson city
clerk. The new council is probably
republican; they will have 3fi and the

Adrian C. Anson, known everywhere
as "Cap" Anson, the old-time popular
baseball captain, was elected c ity clerk.
His campaign was the feature of the
contests. One of the incidents of the
campaign was Judge Dunne's record
as father, there being i: children in
his family. Anson has an almost equal
ly meritorious record in family mat
ters. His popularity, personally, un
doubtedly was a potent help to the
democrats, who seemed to hugely ap
