ASHLAND, Dec. 22. (Special.) Ashland declared against saloons at yesterday's election by tho unprece dented majority of 40G votes, and scorned tho compromise measure known as tho "Pasadena plan" by 44S majority. For tho first tlmo In tho history of tho city tho First ward, somotlmes called tho railroad ward, registered Its volco against license, and gavo a majority of 91 toward tho big anti-saloon total. Tho voto was very light, being 79 less than last year, only 72 S of the 1030 legal voters going to tho polls. Ono rrogrcsslvo Named. Tho fight against mossbacklsm was not so successful as tho campaign against tho other harmful influenco tho Baloon only on0 of tho threo vacancies In tho council being filled by a "progressive," J. C. Barnard, who was Induced to run by foes of tho present administration, defeat ed Councilman Stcnnett by six votes. C. Cunningham, an insurgent coun cilman, was re-elected. This was predicted In yesterday's Mail Tribune, tho Socond ward being tho most back ward in tho city. Tho Third ward, which for six years past has been the leader In nil things progressive again "cam0 through," electing C. D. Scholl ovor P. S. Provost and A. J. Dlogel. ' II. E. Badgor dofoated H. F. Froh- bach for park commissioner, Froh bach being n "llvo ono" and thoreforo tho target for tho tight-wads. An analysis of tho returns Indi cates a strong sontimont against Mayor Snoll's administration, but tho reasons back of It all aro not dis creditable to tho mayor. Tho city recorder and tho water commissioner ar0 out of harmony with tho admin istration and thoir influonco was felt yosterday. Residents of tho Boule vard nnd North Main street, fearing thoy would bo asked to pavo thoir troots noxt year by a progrosslvo council, worked hard for tho "con sorvativo" candidates. And, of course, tho antedoluvians all over tho city worked for tho "tellers that would stop spndlng tho poepul's mon ey." nut progress Is still In tho saddle, for tho throo hold-over vcouncllmon aro up-to-dato, and with the addition pf Scholl, neodod publlo Improve ments will undoubtedly bo pushed for another 12 months at least.
