POOR SEnVICB CAl'SB OP DEFEAT
People of Cleveland Reject Franchise
Ilecaase of This.
CLEVELAND, Oct. ES. Complete returns
from every precinct In the city In the
referendum election of yesterday show that
the so-called Security street railway fran
chise was defeated by the narrow margin
of (V'5 votes. The total number of votes
cast was 76.893, with 37,614 in favor of the
franchise and 88.24 against It. As a result
of the fitlure of the people to approve the
grant the entire street railway sywtem of
the etty will revert to the Cleveland Rail
The defeat of the franchise was doubtless
brought about by what was held to be the
Inadequate and unsatlsf actory service ren
dered by the Municipal Traction company,
the holding company, which operated the

fare to be charged by the Cleveland Rail
