James M. ahnades wais ohisea mayor by a majority whlh nmust be extremely gratifying to him. T. A. Price was re-elected councillnn '¥y a vote which demon strates he approval of his constitu etats. . H. Houston won the third place on the commission by a harrow marglti, leadJng J. W. Reely by only six vots. This was the only close raoe In the election. The final, count, as returned by the precinct judges, gave HIouston, 1,377 votes asainst 1,181 fo iteely. The slloon-closing ordinance, which permite the 'saloons to open Sunday afternoon, received the approval 'of the voters. Py a majority of 305, the ref erendum vote enacted the proposed ordinnance. Every north-side precinct favored the drdinance, some or them by majojltles which went an high as five to ~ne. The south-side precincts were all opposed to the ordinance as proposed, but the majorities 'were smalr, whch gave 94 majority in the .T.$g bo tdtve gives bheide 1i or ..das f 6Nnbir;.wu nrt p G.d"-. thou.h, L Was as great . deal of ea rte.

When %ie returns tfrom the Fhourth pretitOt., the last to be postrl, were marked Ip. there was a rinsing c(heer from thb supporters of the veteran campaigner. Mr. Reely was in the crowd. He took the result with plhil osophlca coolness. He was 'ongratu lated by[ a lot of friends upon the good rus he had made. Mayor Elect Rhoades retired curly. He had .ampaigned steadily for days and war tired out. Before going home, eh made a statement to The lussouHteh which appears elsewhere 'in this edition. There was . some celebration by thoqe wleo had won, but the evening was quiet, on the whole, after the big crowd hod learned the result.' The nCw officers will take thelxt seats thu first Monday In May. The new ordinance, according to the law, becomes effective in 80 days. A *ig Vote.

The voters came In In a businesslike map ner, reedived their ballots, marked them quickly and then left. Very few stopped to discuss the Issue of the day and did not Invite confidences. It was apparent that all had their minds fully made-up before coming to the polls; that even those who stopped for some ptoffered advice, took it smill Ingy, but voted as they had previous ly decided. This was particularly true of the south side precincts for on the north side of the rlver a few voters were rushed in during the last hour who votet as they were asked to, not seetnlng to have any interest in the result. In only two instances were the of ficial ballots marked differently than they were printed yesterday, the law allowing voters to Insert other names on the ballot If they so desired. Over in the Third ward some voter put down the name of Cuthbert Peat. This made one vote for Mr. Pent yes terday. That Chicken Ordinenoe. That there 4s one man in precinct .Ilye who hs a 4094 was plainly~ shown ye*teiday after the polls hid closed. To thq Judges and the watch el's in the polling place it was evident that this man places his garden first and all else to him Is of minor im portance. When the ballot box was opened and the judges started on the long, tedious count of the votes there was one bal nlt which caused a little diversion for nil present. The clerk in calling off the preferences In a monotonous tone suddenly stopped, looked at the ballot he was holding, and then asked: "is this thing here legal? Here is a man who has voted for a chicken ordl nance." All gathered about and there it was. On every blank line was inscribed In a bold hand, "For a Chicken Ordi nance." And the voter had become so interested in the chicken ordinance, that he had neglected to vote for the saloon ordinance at all. There was much comment as to whether the ballot was legal or not. But as the law only requires that the voter's intention be plainly shown it was decided to count the ballot. The intention of the voter it was claimed was shown; both as to whom he wanted for the offices and what he wanted them to do after they were elected. To this man it does not matter much who runs the city, but he Is particular as to what overruns his garden. The Betting. Despite unusual interest In the mayoralty race, the feature .of the election was the fate of the saloon or dinance. Up to five minutes before the polls closed, those who wished it to pass and those who had voted and worked against it were equally posl tive of victory. This was the call for mapy bets and of all the money wag ered yesterday the most was oh the Sunday-opening result. The betting element conceded the election of (Continued on Page Eight.) ~H I..
