|Plot||Mrs. Bess Smith was a widow, and a suffragette. When election time drew near the "Votes for Women" advocates nominated her for mayor against Joe Jones, the machine candidate. After one encounter with the suffragists, Jones was treated so roughly that he decided to pay Mrs. Smith to withdraw. When he called, the ladies fixed up a scheme on him by which he made his proposition to a phonograph record, as well as to the nominee: then they told him what had happened. Joe, a widower, told his son, Joe, Junior, of what had happened and Joe offered to help him. Joe, Junior, was in love with Bess Smith, Junior, and when Mrs. Smith was coming home from a mass meeting, she met Joe, Senior, and invited him into her home. When they entered they found their respective son and daughter in each other's arms. Mrs. Smith stormed and raged at this new complication, but finally gave the children her blessing. Joe Jones, the elder, thereupon proposed to Mrs. Smith, and she decided that in case she lost the office it might be a good thing to be the wife of the mayor.... search for For Mayor, Bess Smith on IMDb|
