Election passed off rather . 1 e ? A- (lUietlV. so iar as nuisc w wu- cerned, but there was quite a lot of suppressed excitement all day long. The opponents of Mayor Jones realized right after tne polls had opened, however, that they were up against a hard fight, and fought without very much hope. Rigs were run all day by both sides, and a fairly large vote was polled, something like 640 votes being polled. Jones, to tell the story in a short way, was elected by a majority of 120, carrying every ward in the city the first by 10, the second by 59, the third by 51. In the first ward Harvey won over Carmichael by 37. In the second ward Hartley beat Gaba, by 13. In the third ward McAboy beat Smith by 4. . The fight was a good natured one all day long, and we did not hear of any unpleasantness. The Jones adherents worked hard for a vindication of their candidate, and 'the' decisive ma jority of 120 was surely vindica- ton enough. The new council will be com posed of men who will be in avor of a continuation of im provement.' Mr. Hartley, the new council mafsfrom the second ward, has had experience along inesofcity affairs, being once in the council and once mayor. Mr. McAboy, the new council man from the third ward, is a young business man of progress ive ideas, and will prove a valu able help to Mayor Jones. Messrs. Harvey, Connor, Nichols and Youse have had to do with municipal affairs and improve ments and we predict that city improvements will go " right ahead. Mayor 12 3 Rucker ....... 91 122 35.
