Between 90 and 100 delegates are pledged to vote for the initiative and referendum. President of the Progres- sive League issued a statement today saying the victory of progressives was every section of the slate joining the a jority of the delegates elected are op- posed to changing the law the liquor question with the legisla- j ture. The progressives 'swept and practically every sec- tion of the state. James R. I was defeated. He failed to pledge' himself to the initiative and referen- dum.

As the result of the election Ohio will be placed undoubtedly in the list of states having the initiative and referendum for both- constitutional amendments and legislation. A large are to'the initiative and referendum and many to other progressive measures. Whether the recall will is not certain. Action looking to the single tax is also problematic though it will undoubtedly be agitated as Herbert S. Bigelow of long an ardent advocate of it has been elected to the convention. Though the delegates were elected on a non-partisan a count shows that the democrats have A con- siderable majority. This may give the democrats hope that they will control the organization but because there will be many high class men in the convention it is hardly likely that party lines will be followed. Though the attorney general rendered an opinion that members of the legisla- ture 'could not -be roemlbers of the convention two members of the'house were 'elected yesterday.

LEHKEK While dozens of explanations may be offered for the re-election of Ma- yor Lehrer and the defeat of William the democratic nominee for an analysis of the figures indicates that tke heavy socialist Tots was the greatest factor. The complete count shows that Lehrer's plurality was 326. The so- _ cialists polled a total of 936 votes for Theodore the figure beiBg far in excess of the estimates of most observers. Not only was the mayor but he carried with him Charles F. Mischlor for president of who defeated P. W. Ohlemaeher by.. a plurality of and four members of the a. majority. Thus the mayor will have a council in sympathy with him. The republican candi- dates for Henry Fred A. Hammond and Hen- ry K. Henkelman. defeated the democratic J. Frank Donahue and J. C. who were seeking and Thomas McSepna. Parsons lost by the narrow plurality of 12. The democrats elected Fred Bauer auditor and re-elected Treas-j urer A. H. Wiesler and Solicitor C. Steinemaun. They also Dr. Nicliolson and John Knauer mem- j bers of the school while Par-i was the third caa-j didate elected. On the face of Knauer defeated M. S. cox by two votes.

The fig- ures indicate that the socialist vote hurt Leite more than it did Lehrer. The defeat of the three democratic candidates for councilman-at-large was generally ascribed to i a desire of the people IT give the mayor a council in harmony his I politics. Even democrats expressed i satisfaction over this arguing that if j the mayor was to be a council should also be of that party. Of course they would have preferred seeing a democratic mayor and coun- cil.
