IT'S MAYOR FRANCISCO Pulls Through by Narrow Margi of Three Majority. TWO DEMOCRATS AUK SUCCESSFUL II the Aid of Republican Votes Adam Wagner Kleeted Treasurer unci K. W Jersey Alderman In the Second Ward ltalance of Republican Ticket Elected Largest Vote Kver Polletl In this City Election day passed very quietly in Helding, but tho vote polled was eon siderably tho largest ever cast in the city, showing that it contains a great many more people than It did ono year ago or at any time previously. There was a great deal of cutting and slash jng anu as is nearly always tho caso . . i .. the republicans suffered most from it Why it is that republican voters are so easily cajoled in splitting their ticket while democrats will nearly alway; rote theirs straight, is ono of those conundrums we have never been able to solve.
