NEW YOItK. Nov. 3. William
J. Gaynor was elected Mayor of
dealer New York In the election
held In this city yesterday, over
Bannard, the Hepubllcan-luslon can
didate, and W. R. Hearst, indepen
dent and heading the fusion ticket.
Contrary to public opinion ns ex
pressed by the talkers who thought
they were alone on the Inside, ut no
time In the day did Hearst have a
show In the election, and the returns
show that he ran a very bad third
in the race. Not only did Gaynor
snow him under by an Immense ma
jority, but Bannard, his Republican
opponent, served him likewise.
Hearst's defeat will always be ie
garded as a record breaker. It was
so complete.
. William A. Pendergast nnd John
Purrey Mitchell were elected Com
t roller and President of the Board
of Aldermen rcsiiertfiilly, by the
combined hit-Inn forces.
Complete returns from New -York
election on Mayor show Gaynor re
ceived 210.078 votes, Bannard 177.
602 and Hearst 163, 842. Gaynor's
plurality 73,01ti.
McCarthy, Union Labor leader, was
elected Mayor of San Francisco yes
terday by a dtctoed vote, and Fran
cis J. Heney was badly beaten by
Charles M. Klckert, Republican and
Union Labor candidates.
This complete resolution In tho
political standing of the city was
owing to an almost universal revolt
against Heuey's methods, and wan
also due very much to the decision
of the Washington Supreme Court of
Appeals In tho Gompers, Mitchell and
Morrison case, which made members
of. Union Labor to vote solidly for
their candidates. 'The decision was
used in strengl ltenlr.g the Union La
bor lines from early morning till the
polls close with telling effect and won
tho day.
FIcKcrt, Honey's opponent also
missed none of the graft-attorney's
weak points, and took advantage of
his uHeless expenditure of public
funds in futile attempts at convic
tion. He made much of lii Intem
perate utterunce& In court which
brought about reversals of his con
victions of ex-Mavor Schmitz nnd At
torney Rent', and his failure to con
vict Calhoun.

Claim of F. C. Frear
Street Sprinkler Purchased Throus'j
llcnlo & Coniany of Portland--Streets
to bo Swept
Pursuant to ft call of the Mayor
the city council convened in special
session last evening, disposing of
numerous matters important to the
council mon aB well as the citizens
st large. Urilke the meeting held
on the previous evening, however,
spicy discussions were in order, and
in several instances the Mayor was
compelled to bound hla gravel in re
storing order, in brief the session
proved true to vaudeville, the visitors
being entei talced from the very min
ute the meeting was called to order
until final adjournment.
Purchase a Sprinkler.
The committee consisting of
CouncHmen Strong, Mlcelll and
Josephson, appointed at Mondny's
session of the council for the pur
pose .of Investigating the purchase
of Btreet sprinkler und ratnn brush
submitted a written rop0rt. In sub
stance the report Bimply Informed
the members of the legislative body
that they had made an Investiuatjon
as instructed and had purchased an
Austin sprinkler from F. S. Patter
son, a representative of Beale Afc Cov
of Portland. The Implement Is con
sidered one f the most modern on
the market and was purchased for
the sum of $392.50. The tank has ;
a capacity of gallons and is!
eqlpped with a vertical spray.
To Clean Streets,
The members of the street clean
ing department submitted a verbal
report last evening In which they
presented several recommendations
as follows:
That the paved streets be cleaned
more frequently In the future than
in the past. .
That tho business men nnd others
he compelled to move all unneces
sary obstruction? irom the streets
wltnout delay.
That permits to use the streets be
refused all contractors who persist
In nlocklug the gutters In the paved
That all persons he notified to cate
for their refuse and not allow It to
accumulate about their premises as
has been customary in time past.
In regard to cleaning the streets
Counrilman McClallen said that he
had reroived an offer from a respon
sible citizen who was willing to con
tract for the sprinkling, cleaning,
and hauling away of the refuse for
the sum of $12u per month. As to
the investigation relative to housing
the street cleaning implements. Mc
Clallen said thut such a report would
be forthcoming at the next regular
meeting of the council.
Councilman Mlcelll expressed him
self as opposed to paying $120 per
month for cleaning the streets with
out first experimenting. "Wo hnvo
never employed n man in this work"
said Mr. Mlcelll, "and therefore none
of us know just how much time it
will consume. 1 believe that we
should get busv, employ a man and
team temporarily, and then we may
determine more intelligently what
the task Is worth. For all I know
It may take four hours or twenty
After a prolonged discussion it
was decided to employ a man and
team temporarily. The st reet3 will
probably be cleaned for the first
time in several weeks tonight.
Fmir Is Paid.
The committee to tho mut-
ter or Investigating the Frear-IIar-tont?
controversy was referred nt
Monday evening's session of the
council submitted a written report
last night's meeting. In brief, they
recommended that tho city pay one
i halt the claim oi $lifi.50. and that
i former City Engineer llartong be
compelled to squnro the balance.
This report did not sound good to
, M:Clnilen who declared that llar
tong was either right or wrong, and
therefore should be forced to make
good the entire $25.50 or nothing at
all. Mlcelll coincided with McClallen
'stating that he was of tho opinion
that llartong was personally respon
sible for the eror and should be com
pelled to make good. Tpon being
i placed to a vote the report of the
.committee was rejeeted and llartong
held responsible for tho entire claim
of $a:.5i).
A bill received from Harlong wns
