One of the prisoners in this part of the jali had. however, taken notice of the lock and .thought .it appeared to hav^ hPsn tampered with. He Im mediately called the attention of the jailer to his discovery. .Mr. Kerr made an ^examhiation and found that the surmise of tho prisoner was correct. The lock is a big on? and ,ls held together largely by two rivets If the rivets were removed the lock could easily be torn to pieces. The jailer discovered at first glance that the lock ^as In a ver>' unsafe condi tlon as oce of the rivets had been removed and in the opening hole left thereby had been placed a soft substance which appeared to be soap. The other rivet had been partially removed and the same soft substance used to All up the ho!e. Not much more work would have been required nttltt the rivet would have been out and the lock fallen to pieces. With this lock rendered useless the escape of a prisoner is an easy matter. Whiie there is no stairway lead Ing up from the rear of the jail to this door, yet there is a big pile of rock undt'r the door where the pris oners work. .After oiwiing the dfKir which th*" lock held, the prisoner by opening Un outer door which is un locked, could have jumped down on the rock pile a few feet below and esca|)ed over the back fence. It is not known how long ago the ' krf-k was tampered with, but it ap pears to have been recentJy. Mr. Kerr told a Register reporter that he suspected that Ed. Fuller, who was recently sent to the Hutchinson reformatory, was responsllile for the wprk. Fuller, it will be remembered, was a nalural born machinist, according to the officers. He is said to have had a kef/i interest in locks and slni iiar de»^c*s. It is the opinion of the officers that if Fuller is the ))risonei who tampered with tiie Jock he was taken to the re.:"»rma;ory before he was able-to complett tbe work. It is vcr>' possible that some other prisoner may have done tlie work. Had th^ prisoner succeeded in open liig tlie lock he would have made It possible for a general jail delivery as a great many prisoners are In this part of the jail. Mr. Kerr will today piace a gt>od lock on the door. COMMISSION PLAX BEATEV. Coilfer»IH? Voters (herwhelmingl) Defeat a RainiN)w Srheuit*.

Every precaution City government by commission Is now being agitated :n lora. The people who are behind the movement have been working for some time on th.' matter and have decided to hold a public meeting Friday night to take action. The commission .plan of city government Is being considered by nmny of the cities over the state. Wichita is now agitating the iha,tter. The commission plan was defeated by a public election In Coffeyvllle yesterday. Other cities will vote soou on the question. The p!an, so it is contended by the supporters, is a centralization of au thority and responsibility which can not he attained under any other form of government. Under the Kan.sas law the commission plan for cities of the second class calls for a mayor and two comml!=sioners. Tlie work of caring for the city's business is distributed among the mayor and commissioners. The opponents of the plan assert that any defects in the city government can be cured more read'ly by care in selecting good officials than by changing the form of govmimont. Details of the proposition are also ob jected to. The object of calling the meeting Friday nl?ht is to disciisR the propo sMIon generally and take steps toward submitting the nlan to the vot BEE ORAT REAL COW-BOY. •Slim" With the Cow-Puncher .Gave Lariat Exhibition Yesterday Afternoon, Bee Gray, who playeil the part of SJIm in the Cow-Puncher last night.

Cleveland, O., Nov. 5.—At Republi can hpadquarters at 10:-i .'i o'clock to niglii Secretary Hodway announced that the re -election of .Mayor Tom L. lohiiRon, Democrat, over Congressamn Theodore 10. Uiirton, liiii Republican ipii4jiiiMit, was conceded. It is lielleved the entire Democratic city ticket, with tile possible excep- ion of Paul Shriller, Republican, for cierk of the police c<iurl, is elected. 'i 'lie iiiajority of the coiincilmen elected are also Democrats. \ Four times Tom L. Johnson has been elected mayor of Cleveland. Ral- yiiig under Theodore Burton, the op- ]»osition hoped to defeat liini for the fourth term. To his followers tbe mayor is a great, progressive, creative leader, ahead of his time. To his enemies he is a demagogue and an ex- ravagaut sponsor for dangerous policies. The issues dominating the in- ense and bitter campaign were the administration's record and its trac- lon iirogramme. .\o Boss But Himself. .Mr. Johnson is responsible to no boss except the one who sits iu the mayors chair. He has separated party from municipal politics. His only criterion of service has been efTiciency. Republicans were nominated on his ticket, and Republicans hold some of the most iiniiortant iiositions In bis cabinet. Corruption has been eliminated from every department. In six years no charge of graft has been proved against his administration. \V3ien necessary he has had the courage to b« unpopular with his subordinates. He stands by the chief of police In enforcing discipline. Women of the underworld are not taxed, but kept in order. Saloons may keep their side door open on Sunday. The streets are clean and well jiaved; the parks are well kept. The city now does work more economically ban it was formerly done by private contract. Successful municipal garbage and municipal lighting plants have been established. Public baths, with free tubs in which the women of he neighborhood may do their washing, have been built. Tbln ^rs He Has Done. The old workhouse system is being abolished. A farm colon.v, where misdemeanants are reformed, has taken its iilace. Wliere formerly the people had no means of recreation, they now have a great recreation pier, free baseball diamonds and skating ponds, and "Keep off the Grass" signs no longer restrict their enjoyment of the parks. A civic center lias been planned and carried through in opposition to selfish interests. The death rate of the city has fallen .in si.v years from ll^O'J to 15.64 a thousand. Rigid meat and milk In- pection laws have been established; wat^r works plant has been coniplet- d; iTouses throughout the city have een met red, decreasing the con.sump- lon and increasing the income. This department, formerly the scandal of charge of an expert undisturbed In authority. Mr. Johnson has demon- rated that an American city may be well governed. He has made Cleveland a model for study by municipal •Authorities throughout the country. Traction Pight.x. .Mr. John .son found the city with a reer railway monopoly, controlling ill the franchises, within the city lilts and all the connecting franchises of the suburbs. Its rate was eleven ickets for 50 cents. Yet the mayor has been fair to the ompany; he has lieen liberal with it in tlie matter of paving and his con- ruction of the city regulations, though, in order to threaten the people w^th the conseipiences of their op- osiilon, it tore up Its tracks on two of the main streets. .Mayor Johnson insisted that 3-cent fares could be made to pay t! per cent ividends ou the unwater.ed stock of he actual valuation of tracks, cars and plant. The Cleveland Electric railway T>eop!e declared him wrong in his as in most of his traction pro­ gramme, that he never was a practical operator but no promoter. Tt test he accuracy of Johnson's claim concerning ;'.-cent fares, the Cleveland lectric Company tried them for a limited period as a test on separate cars over a minor zone extending two miles from the public square. Forest City Line. Before the experiment an estimate as to the effect on the gross earnings as made on separate slips of pai>er •ind signed by Mr, Johnson, by Mr. Du Pont, his street railway enpert of the .1-cent fare Forest City Railway, and by Horace Andrews, the president, and J. J. Stanley, the general manager of the Cleveland Electric Company. Tbe estimates were then sealed and put away. Johnson and Du Pont prophesied respectively inereasiea of 5 and-8 per e«nt; tb* r«prM«Bt«tirM of tb« Cleve- land Electric Company predicted a loss of a per cent. The actual result was a falling off of 5.74 per cent. As a result of the traction war two of the main streets of Cleveland are without any transit facilities. The mayor's three bent fare company offered the Cleve and Electric, after the expiration of Iti franchise, $150,000 for . |.iri .e. .uci, wa.

At that hour twenty-four of the 11!) counties in Kentucky, exclusive of, Ix)uisville and Jelfersdn County, had been heard from. These countie.'; gave Samuel W. Hager (l)em.) for governor total majority of 624 over Augustus E. Wlilson . (Rep.). The same coun- Ues in 190» gave Beckham (Dem.) c otai majority of 4,378, a Republican gain at this election of 3,754. The same ratio of gain in the remaining counties would insure Willson's elec- ion by a safe majority. In Louisville and Jefferson county, which were not included in the foregoing figures, 117 precincts gave Willson 2.83 .T majority, and James F. Grinstead (Rep.) for mayor, 1.25B majority over Owen Tyler, (Dem.).
