BRIDGEPORT. Conn., Nov. 3.— Mayor Dennis Mulvihill, known as the "stoker Mayor," was carried in a triumphal -pro cession to-night during the celebration of his re-election. With him practically the entire- Democratic ticket was carried into office. Mulvihill defeated George E. Hill (R.) by' 7181 in the greatest poll in the city's history. Salt Lake Is Democratic. SALT LAKE, Utah, Nov. 3.— The Dem ocrats not only elect Morris (D.) over Knox (R.) by about 1500 but also elect thirteen of the fifteen members of the City Council. Eight of these are Mor mons. «g ar'AYOR~EUGENE-E.\ SCHMITZ was asked last evening to make a statement shortly Je/g after the counting. of 'the votes indicated his return to office for a second term. The °^ Mayor; who had retired to his home early and was with a number of his friends, said : "I must say that? I am more rthan pleased With the result. I never had a serious doubt as to the result of 'the [election. To the people who Iiavc supported me I am> indeed grateful. My fight was a< hard one, ]as I? was not; supported : by> the public press in a single instance, but that is the result ¦ of -politics. ; 1 , _ • "/ have no hard feeling against those ,xvho opposed iny re-election, and I will endeavor to a '\ve the '.people of : San 'Francisco a _good, clean, administrate nn. I have tried to do this, and would- have done much-better if -Iihad'had the proper support, but now that I have the con fidence of the people I hope to) carry out my intentions. ' "As. regards the Itandlingor rather the direction of expenditure of money voted on the bond election, I zuill do ' everythingin my power to see that the funds are rightfully expended and make San Francisco one of the grandest cities in the zvorld. "1 '¦: trust and Hope that when my second term of office expires the people will not regret the; confidence [they [have again placed in me." MAYOR SCHMITZ TH ANKS PEOPLE FOR RE-ELECTION apprised as to the number of Repub lican ballots thrown out by election officers. Mayor Schmitz promises to give the people a good administration, but says nothing about the hideous shadow of Ruef. Parry is delighted beyond expression over the outcome of the struggle and the colt is full of pranks. As the campaign is now , concluded the clerks and attaches,! connected with the administration may go back to their respective sta tions, and the Civil Service Commis sioners, weary of campaigning on the stump for Ruef and Schmitz, may return to the old stand of- the com mission in the City Hall. . From the figures at hand it appears that Lane receives about 12,000 votes, Crocker 22,000, Schmitz 24,000 and Whitney, Socialist, 2300. When Lane ran for Governor he was hailed as the friend of the workingman and the champion of the common people. He received 33,000 votes. It seems, there fore, that 21,000 voters. who gave him their support a year ago have under gone a change of mind. The figures may not be exactly 21,000, but the number is not wide of the mark. When all the returns arc tallied and subjected. to analj'sis one may be able to determine how many votes Rucf transferred from the Republican col umn to Schmitz and how many Mar tin Kelly took to Lane. The total vote of 60,300 cast yes terday was somewhat of a surprise. Experts, including the Registrar, placed the number as low as 57,000. Mr. Crocker made a 'fine showing in the labor districts south of Market street. Later on the public • will - be VOTERS CHANGED VIEWS. political experts predicted that. a good Democratic candidate could divide the labor vote and this division would have followed if any one other than a professional job chaser had been called to Democratic leadership. Lane never had the ghost of a chance to win. What little support he se cured came from dyed in the wool Democrats and non-partisans of the si- Pcrhaps he would have Jess cause for chagrin if one of his newspaper or gans had not resorted to the most con temptible form of misrepresentation to bolster up this hopeless candidacy. The Republican press and the Rcpub lican campaign committee warned the public at every stage of the campaign that a vole for Lane was really a vote for Schmitz. Results prove that the warning was justified. Early in the campaign many of the y^ UGENE E. SCHMITZ is re »Y elected to the office of Mayor, M and it is devoutly to be wished that his second admin istration of municipal affairs will be better than his first. His plurality, ac cording to the votes tallied, will ap proximate 2000. An army of muni cipal attaches and political workers, sustained by a campaign fund of $50, 000, won the battle, as the forces of good citizenship were divided. Votes which should have been given to Hen ry J. Crocker were thrown away on that unfortunate prince of demagogues which Gavan McNab placed at the head of the Democratic ticket. Henry J. Crocker, the Republican nominee, made the most creditable campaign ever conducted in San Fran cisco. He accepts the result in manly fashion. He maintained throughout the animated contest a straight forward, honorable course, appealing to the judgment and intelligence of good citizenship for support. He car ried the Assembly districts of the Re publican column, but his pluralities do not seem to be large enough to over come the heavy vote which Mayor Schiriitz receives in the so-called Dem ocratic districts south of Market street. LANE'S CASE WAS HOPELESS. As foreshadowed in The Call from ' ¦ - day to day during the canvass, Frank lin K. Lane failed to carry a single As sembly district. Lane's Chances Were Never Good.

The contest in that State was for Governor and the Legislature and it had an additional interest because Senator Hanna, chairman of the Republican Na tional Committee, is a candidate for re election to the Senate. Hanna will con trol the Legislature by a big" margin, and Myron T. Herrick, Republican, has da- LANDSLIDE IN OHIO. One lesson of the returns Is that New York is not only still a Democratic city, but a Tammany city as well. Devery has ceased to be an issue and the public has taken the view that Devery was respon sible for graft and blackmail and that Tammany, having thrown Devery out. was entitled to another trial In manag ing the affairs of the municipality. Dev ery's vote was pitifully small. The election seems to have been very fair and orderly. While the results show a complete breakdown of Republican and Fusion, It cannot bo charged that the Re publican organization was treacherous. The tide was simply strongly in favor of Democracy and a wide-open town. REPUBLICANS FAIL TO VOTE. The Republicans who left their party last year are still with the Democracy and there also is evidence that thousands did not go to the polls. The constitutional amendment which was submitted to voters, providing for expenditure of $101,000,000 for the improve ment of the Erie Canal so as to permit the transportation of barges carrying 1000 tons of freight, probably has been adopted. Very few counties up State vot ed in favor of It. The amendment was voted down by some of the more impor tant counties traversed by tha canal. In those counties which are not traversed by the canal In Northern and Southern New York the amendment was simply slaughtered. Erie County, which was supposed to be the hotbed of canal sentiment, did not do as well as the ad vocates of tha improvement had expected, but New York County's heavy vote has probably more than * offset the up State result. The Assembly of the State of New York Is safely Republican. plurality second only to the un precedented sweep of 1902, when Coler car ried the city by 122,000 votes more than Odell, the Republican candidate, for Gov ernor. It was more than a landslide— It was an avalanche. Manhattan and the Bronx, comprising New York County, gave a plurality of between 60,000 and 70,000 for McClellan, Grout and Forbes. Even Brooklyn was carried by the Tammapy ticket by a plurality approaching 4000. In this Tammany sweep practically all the Democratic candidates for borough and county offices, except in Richmond, triumphed. The Board of Aldermen will be completely in the control of Tammany. The verdict at the polls strongly en trenches the wigwam in power in this city. Charles F. Murphy becomes the most important Democrat in the country. He will probably have more influence in the next Democratic National Convention than Croker, Kelly or Hill ever had. be cause he will not only be able to domi nate the entire Democratic party of th* entire city, but the Democratic party of the State as well. Murphy's victory seems to mean the destruction of both Hill and Hugh Mclaughlin. TAMMANY FOB CLEVELAND. The Tammany leader will be abla to name the next Democratic candidate for Governor, and,- possibly, the next Demo cratic candidate for President. The Call Is informed that Tammany will stand in favor of the nomination of Grover Cleveland for President next year, and It Is said that Judge D. Cady Herrlck of Albany will displace Hill as nominal State leader and may be the candidate of the Democrats for Governor. EW YORK, Nov. 3.— Tammany l3L y scored a remarkable triumph in f\J to-day's city election. Its entire JL \f city ticket was elected by a National Effect of Off Year Vic tories.
