John S Bransford was elected mayor
Of Salt Lake yesterday the American
party electing every man on the city
tiCket and electing councilmen in every
prednrt with the exception of the Third
where John Holley Democrat was
elected for the long term and C M
Lees Republican for the short term on
the fusion ticket
Vote Is I Not Heavy
The vote was surprIsingly lIght In al
most every one of the fiftrfour districts
ii If the city In the strong American
K part dIstricts the American party got
Its vote out early and excepting in the
FiftythIrd and Fiftyfourth districts
the wInners polled nearly theIr entire
estimated strength Straight tickets
er > the rule generally and in only a
frw districts was there any consider
able amount of scratching
Although there were many challenges
bc both Republicans and American
party workers there was lIttle dlooroer
fxpting In the Fortsecond and the
Fortthrd districts
In Ogden Wtlllam Glasmann Repub
lican candIdate for mayor was elected
as well as the other Republicans on the
C Ity ticket Provo eiectal four dry
1mion candidates for the city council
but the mayor is against prohIbition
Among the city chairmen in the Salt
Lake campaign J E Darmer Is the
only one who last night could say I
told you 80 He was as surprIsed as
anyone over the figures although he
l aUt1i the results in his statement given
t I The HeraldRepublican Monday
evening The Wallace vote was a puz
e to everyone and was only solved
hEn the complete returns were In
f hnwing that he had run tttird In the
rare by fifttwo votes receivIng 6070
t 6123 for Murdoch
Rports received during the day at the
rius campaIgn headquarters were
11 chaotic and untIl late In the after
T In it was believed generally that the
f 1810n candidates for auditor attorney
and treasurer would win by a fair mar
gin It was also the general belief that
t111 fusion councilmanic candIdates In
th First and Fourth precIncts would
t I by a close margin and that John A
kman would be elected councilman
fr m the Second precInct against E G
OJonnell The Americans centered
t1I ir councllmanIt fight In the Second
rre met and the RepubUcnn organIza
tlon wa also active In that precinct as
well as In the FIrst
The general apathy shown during the
entire campaIgn was reflected on elec
tion day for although the weather was
perfect the total vote was 25700 as
compared wIth about 27500 one yoor
ago when election clay was cold and
unpleasant
Great Crowd Sees Bulletins
Goodnatured jostling crowds filled the
streets and 10000 congregated in front
of The HeraldRepublican office to get
the returns last night At the various
headquarters there was the usual crowd
of workers and candidates but wIth the
exception of the winners the others
went home early after the general re
sults were known
Betting on this election was lighter
than In the last ten years in Salt Lake
Hetlvy odds were demanded on the head
of the ticket and most of the money
that changed hands was on the relative
strength of Murdoch and Wallace A
favorite bet was that the Americans
would elect eight candidates and there
were a number of bets on the election
of Iulvey for the council and Law
rence for city attorney
In the First precinct J B Moreton
American party candidate for council
man for the long term received 4217
votes and Frank J Hewlett fusIon can
didate for the long term received 3637
J B McKinney AmerIcan for the short
term received 3895 and J S Hyde
fusion receIved 3733
E G ODonnell American candidate
for the long term In the Second precinct
received 339 and J A Ekman Repub
lican receIved 2733 C H Reed Amer
Ican for the short term received 3332
W E Vigus 1202 and BurbIdge 1515
The fusion councilmanIc ticket won
easily in the Third precinct where for I
the long term Holley received 2560
against 1353 for DavIs and Lees re
ceived 2561 agaInst 1536
The contest was close In the Fourth
W Mont Ferry receIving 2155 against
2046 for Joseph Kimball and for the
short term W C Lyne receIving 2175
and W T Atkin 1768
Martin E Mulvey received 2428 for
councIlman In the FIfth precInct
against 1273 for John M KnIght For

BY JOHN S BRANSFORD
I am deeply apprecIative of the high honor again conferred on me by the cit I
Izens ot Salt Lake Now that the contest Is over and the voters by their suf I
frage decided the election question I hope that everybody will unite for a greater
Salt Lake Of course I am pleased that a council has boon elected which will
be In sIIlpafhy with me and which will carry out the policy which was Inau
gurated at the time the Americans gained control of the cIty What more could
ask I asked for a council that would support mo and I got It White I have
not given the matter much thought just yet still I can say that my conduct of the
office will be the same during the coming term as It has been during this term I
will stand for the making of all the improvements that the finances of the city
will permit
BY JAMES D MURDOOH
The Republicans have made a dignified and clean campaign and we lost sim
ply because we dId not have votes enough to win I am satisfied with the re
sult and 1 wish Mayor Bransford a pleasant and successful adminIstration In the
office to which he has been elected by the people ot Salt Lake In the race for
mayor 1 have been beaten decisively nd I have no excuses to make
BY WILLIAM R WALLACE
How does the defeated candidate usually feel In a contest of this kind Well
he hardly feels In the same frame of mind as he would if t victor had perched on
the banner of the causo which he had espoused Defeat Is a bitter pm at the
best I have taken my defeat philosophically however and find considerable sat
Isfaction In the knowledge that the voters among the CitlzensDemocrntc part
rallied so nobly to my support I have enjoyed my association with the mem
bers of the central committee the Democrats and the Citizens I am appreciative
ot the gallant fight they made in my behalf I am still hopeful that the strife
which has long agitated thIs city will be settled soon Religious prejudice should
not enter into a municipal campaign and I hope that the time will soon come
when an r citizen can be elected to office Irrespective of the religious belief which
he entertains
POLiCE LED BY OHUEF START
RIOTING IN POLLiNG PLACE
Mrs Rose Woolley an Official
Driven Out in TearsDeputy
Sheriff Nowell Assaulted
American party policemen led by Chief S M Barlow and Lieuten
ant R L Shannon caused a riot at the Brigham Street pharmacy the
polling place in election district No 42 at about 4 oclock yesterday aft
ernoon brutally assaulted Deputy Sheriff Samuel Nowell and by sheer
dominating violence drove Mrs Rose Woolley temporary Republican
district chairman from the polling place in tears
The assault and infringement upon the dignity of the polls was fol
lowed by an attempt to drive Republican challengers from the polling
place and this attempt was only frustrated by the appearance of Mayor
John Bransford who poured soothing oil upon the methods of his police
department and later compelled an apology from Lieutenant Shannon to
the man he had so roughly assaulted
This apology was tendered In the
presence and for the benefit of a hun
dred or more voters who were express
Ing their disgust at the actions of the
offIcers ot the police department
Up until the arrIval of Mayor Brans
ford Frank Willis and two other
American party policemen had taken
up their positions In the polling place
and had used their Infuenco to intimI
date G A Merlckel and other Repub
Bean challengers who were acting
within their rights
Deputy Sheriff Samuel Nowell re
placed Deputy James Williams at the
polls shortly after the noon hour With
three AmerIcan party judges In charge
ot the polls and Walter Llttl an Amer
Ican part man directing the voting
machine many persons were being In
structed that the lever Indicating a
straight vote for the American party
was the proper one for thorn to pull
Deputy Nowell and the RepUblican
challengers protested against Little
going behind the curtains with voters
to direct ttfem In the voting on the ma
chine It being apparent that many
through Ignorance were voting against
their wilL
Thc right ot Little to dIrect the vot
ing In thIs way was questioned and the
dlsagreeJnent led to the cal1tng Chief
Barlow and LIeutenant Shannon With
out waiting for explanations Chief
Barlow and Lieutenant Shannon made
a demonstration against the Republican
challengers immediately upon entering
the polling place and recognizing
Deputy NoweII used personal vIolence
to expel him from the place Lieu
tenant Shannon struck Nowell a heavy
blow on the right ear and with the
assistance of Chief Barlow and the
American party special officers Nowell
was thrown bodIly from the pharmacy
apd ordered to remain outside
This order evIdently dId not apply to
American party specIal officers who
remained Inside the polling place and
aided in the attempt to browbeat Re
publIcan challengers until after the ar
rival of Mayor John Bransford to
whom a general protest was made by
those who had witnessed the assault

NTEREST IN PHILIPPINE
ELECTION WAS VERY SMALL
Only One in Thirty Registered and
There Were No Sharp
Contests
Manila Nov 2A general election was held tlllougllout the Philip
pine islands today for members of the assembly and provincial and mu
nicipal officials Little interest was shown and it is doubtful if the total
vote will equal tluit of twoJears ago when only about one in thirty of
the population registered
I Dominador I Gomez former president of
the Nationalist party who was ousted
from the last assembly furnished the
only picturesque feature of todays elec
tion In this city FollowIng his election
to the assembly two years ago the courts
decided that Gomez was not a citizen
and therefore Ineligible to hold office or
to vote Acordlrgly he was unseated
when the assembly organized Neverthe
less Gomez Insisted upon running for the I
assembly again today and probably has
been defeated
As was the case at the first election In
1907 the contest for the assembly was
between the Nationalists and the Progres
sivists The origInal Issue for which the
Nationalists stood was the lmmeciate n
dePEndence of the Islands while the Fro
gressists accepted American IInzeralnty
The Nationalists won eilly In 1907 but
their policy of Independen was ockd
by the Philippine ommlUon which 00r
stItutes the upper house of legislation ant
is composed of the governor general and
eight commissioners of whom tour are
Americans and four Filipinos Today
there were no Important issues involvsd
in the assembly contest and there were
many Independent candidates
The provincial elections were for a
choice of governors and the munIcipal
elections for the selection of presidents
vice presidents and councilots In no In
stance was a sharp contest developed
