love for the young woman whose am

"Working you prerty hard these days,

mark that opened the way for more
to follow. "If you belonged to my
generation Instead of your own you
wouldn't be cold shouldering that

The boss looked up quickly. "Some

Evan Blount met the gare of the
shrewd gray eyes without flinching.
"I don't know of any good reason
why we shouldn't be frank with each
other, dad." he said, using for the
first time since his return the old boy
hood father name. "You know better
than any one else, I think, what the
stumbling blocks are and who is put
ting them in my war."
Instantly the faraway look came
Into the gray eyes.
"I know a heap of things that I
can't tell not just yet. son. Has Mc
Ylckar been calling you down?"
"No . one has called me down, but
some one or something is keeping me

fight that I can get into. Everywhere
I go there is the same cut and dried
welcome, the same predetermined en

easy for me."
The senator's chuckle was barely

that lf I were you, son." be said, j
"You'll get enough of the real thing
by and by.
Blount felt his anger rising. He
was in precisely the right mood to be
lieve that his father, failing to make
him a cog in one of the wheels in the
machine, had gone about in some mys
terious way to Insulate him, to make
It impossible for him to get Into the
real tide of affairs. But he kept his

was accompanied by the quizzical smile
that brought the hot blood boyishly to

and then went on again with better
self control :
"Let's keep the peace if we can. dad.
I'm sorry that you are finding it nec
essary to fight me and a thousand
times sorrier that I've got to fight you.
But I'll tell you here and now that
I'll never quit this state this native
state of mine until it has had at least
one decently clean election. I have
told Gantry to pass the word that I
shall show the railroad up if it doesn't
play fair, and I've got to hand the
same thing out to you, dad. I don't
want to threaten, but it Is only fair to
say that I haven't been going about
with my eyes shut. Whether you have
authorized it or not, there is a lot of
crooked work going on. and if I am
driven to it I can print some things
that would chancre the political map of
this state so it won't be recognizable."

democratic nomination for congress
in his district. He was beaten, but
ran again at the next election and
was elected by a majority of 3,000.
HAD RADICAL, VIEWS.
Johnson was returned to office in
1892, but in the landslide of 1894
he was beaten
He never went back
to congress. He had begun at this
time to hold radical opinions on the
subject of public service corpora-
tions. He believed that street rail
ways, like the elevators in tall
buildings, should be run free. The
expense of operation, in his opinion,
should be borne by the property
owners along the right of way.
A proposition for a holding com
pany to operate the car lines for the
city under a 30 years' franchise wast
rejected by the people on a referen-:
dum vote. Two years after this de-'.
feat the same kind of an opportunity
offered itself in Cleveland. Mayor
Farley, though elected in opposition
to the Cleveland street car ring, re
pudiated his campaign promises and
attempted to promote passage of a
25-year franchise. Johnson immed
iately becarre a candidate for mayor I
by petition, buying signers at 2 cents
a name. Then he ran for office on
a, municipal ownership platform and
was elected by a plurality of 6,033.
W1SS IX LONG FIGHT.
Then began a long fight between
Johnson and the municipal owner
ship advocates on one side and Mark
llanna and the financial interests of
the sta'e on the other. Struggling;
against almost overwhelming odds, !
Johnson was in the main successful. ;
He carried his fight into the state!
legislature and, though defeated, left
; an impression :hat his enemies
could not ignore. -
In the spring of 1903, although j
long since pronounced politically!
dead, he was elected mayor with a!
plurality of 5.9S5. Immediately the I
' old struggle was resumed and John-i
son again was compelled to carry his
battle out into the state in the hope!
of getting a legislature favorable to!
his plans. Again he was defeated.

cessions to the public in reduced

steadily throughout the remainder
of Johnson's tenure of the mayoralty
until the public became weary of It.
Johnson, however, had been in most
matters victorious. He had forced
the street railway companies to
grant concessions in the way of im
