VOTE AND FEW CONTESTS LEITZ NOMINATED; DEFEATS MACHINE Democrats Show Unmistakab! y Their Opposition to So-Called Organization in City. Bauer Named for City Auditor and Thiem for was Light, Especially on the Republican Side, Because of Few Contests. Dealing a smashing blow at the machine organization, democrats, Tuesday, nominated William Leitz for mayor. Two years ago Leitz was defeated in the primaries and the election of Mayor Lehrer, republican, followed. This time the Leitz sentiment could not be overcome by the weakened and disintegrating organisation. Leitz was, without doubt, the candidate least desired of ail by the machine, which had backed Jacob Dietz for the nomination. Mr. Dietz is personally popular and well-fitted, but the argument used against him that the machine wanted him and this seems to have been effective in the West End especially. As a matter of fact, the votes for both Leitz and William L. Fiesing. er were anti-machine votes so that the total was 698 against 369, or al- most two to one. Leitz gained his victory fay a big vote in the West End where his automobile carried many voters to the various precincts. The organization men had been so confident of a D.etz victory, proclaiming it through their organ, that they were stunned reported, indicating their defeat.
