Heavy Vote Polled, Jones Winning
by 120 -Citizens Ticket Victo
rious Clear Down the Line With
Exccption of two Councilmen.
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

Evidently the insurance com-.
oanies who carried the insurance
on the buildings recently burneti

arrest and conviction of the guilty

that fire was the result of a fire
