Crushing Defeat of Tammany

JEROME WAS ALSO SUCCESSFUL

rial Change in the State'
NEW YORK. "Nov. . Seth Low, ex
President of Columbia University, and
four years ago the Citizens' Union candi
date' for the firs! Mayor of Greater New
York, was elected today the second Mayor
of Greater New York by a plurality rang
ing anywhere from 30,000 to 4o,000, defeat
ing Edward M. Shepard, of Brooklyn,
the Democratic nominee. The campaign
was an exciting one, and the Vote, though
somewhat less than in the Presidential
election a year ago, was the largest ever
polled in a municipal contest In this coun
try. In addition to the canvass for Mayor,
public Interest largely centered in the
nomination by the Fuslonists of William
Travers Jerome for District Attorney, and
Mayor Robert A. Van Wyck, by the Dem
ocrats, for Justice of the Supreme Court,
who were voted for only in the territory
contained in New York County. Returns
received up to 11 P. M. indicate that
Jerome has been elected by a comfort-,
able majority and that Mayor Van "Wyck
has been defeated, the latter running be
hind his ticket from 15,000 to 20,000.
Returns also indicate the complete tri
umph here of the Greater New York
Fusion ticket, Charles Vincent Fornes, the
nominee of the Citizens' Union and the
Republicans for President of the Board of
Aldermen, defeating George M. Van
hocsen, the Democratic nominee. E. M.
Grout, for the past four years Democratic
President of the Borough of Brooklyn,
now the Fusionist nominee for Controller,
has also defeated W, W. Ladd, Jr., Dem
ocrat. Returns from the local, borough and
county tickets are incomplete. Complete
returns received from Staten Island, how
ever, show that Congressman Nicholas
Muller has been defeated In his canvass
for president of the Borough of Richmond
by George Cromwell, Fusionist. In the
Borough of Queens the election of Joseph
Cassldy, Democrat, as President of the
Borough, over Henry Doyt, Republican,
and Robert'B. Lawrence, Citizens' Union,
Is conceded. In the Boroughs of Brook
lyn, Manhattan and the Bronx, additional
and possibly official returns will be re
quired to determine the results for bor
ough president and other local officers.
Reports received from the various sec-,
tlons of New York State show that the
Republicans will retain control of the
lower house of the State Legislature, the
number of Republican and Democratic
Assomolymcn dot differing materially X om
the figures of preceding years.
In the various municipal contests re
ported from dp the state, the most inter
esting elections noted were thosfc of Al
bany, Troy, Rochester, Syracuse and
Buffalo. The City of Aloany was carried
by the Republicans, ex-Senator David B
Hill taking no active part In the local
The election In Troy was a lively one, a
number of arrests for illegal voting be
ing made. Ex-United States Senator Mur
phy headed the fight for the candidates
of the Democrats, while ex-Governor
Black managed the campaign for the Pro
gressive Democratic-Republican ticket.
Daniel E. Conway, the candidate for
Mayor supported by Ex-Governor Black,
was easily elected.
In Buffalo the entire Republican city
and county tickets were elected, Erastus
C Knight, the State Controller, being
chosen Mayor. The result In Rochester
was close, but Major Warner's friends
claim the elect'on. -of the Republican candidate.
Republicans and Democrats alike should
loyally hold up the hands of those whom
the people have chosen in all good work
on their part

that'the munificent purposes which those
who nominated me and 1 have had In
mind may be realized, eVen If In a man

"The outcome of this election Is a splen

From all parts of the city have come, the
votes that hae robuked the Tammany
orgy of the last four years. All the pa
tronage.of the city and limitless money
have not availed against the aroused In
dignation of the people, and it Is safe. to
say that absentee government and govern
ment for private gain will not be seen
again in New York City for many a day.
This is no man's triumph, but it Is the
peop'e's victory. The agencies that hae
brought It about are many. Those who
labored so long and so patiently to bring
about the successful fusions of many ele
ments, and those who have supported the
fusion so loyally are all entitled to the
greatest credit. For myself, I ask for
the generous and constant support of the
community in the great task to which it
has summoned me."

EXTENT OF THE TRIUMPH.

NEW YORK, Nov, 6, 1 A. M. With the
election of Seth Low as Ma or, Charles V.
Fornes as President of the Board of Al

troller, the Xudonlst triumph In Greater
New York Appears nearly complete. Many
fusion leaders expressed pre-election fears
that, even though Seth Low might be
elected, he would find himself In the posi
tion of a President" of the United States
confronted by a hostile Congress, since,
under the newly-adopted city charter, the
presidents of the boroughs are given

defeated James L. Wells, fusionist, ior

These results, unless modified by the
official figures, will give the fuslonlsts
complete control of the taxing machinery
of the city, as well as of the varolus
boards concerned In the appropriation and
distribution of public funds.
Perhaps the greatest surprise of the
election, next to the defeat In Staten

apparent triumph of the county ticket In

Reply to Last Note Not
PARIS, Nov. 5. Admiral Calllard has
occupied the three principal ports of the
Island of Mltjlene. Following Is tho dis
patch received from Admiral Calllard:
"Mityiene, Nov. 5, 11:40 A. M. Armored

The dispatch does not mention any in
cident attending the landing, but It seems
certain that tho French commander car
ried out his Instructions, which were to
occupy three port3 of the island and to
seize the customs. One cruiser and tbreo
torpedo-catchers became separated from
tho squadron, owing to the speed of tha
latter. The dispatch-boat Mouette, which
had Joined the squadron, wag sent to meet
them and to accompany them to Mityiene.
Admiral Calllard's squadron arrived off
the Island of Syra (Grecian Archipelago)
yesterday, and detached a dispatch-boat,
which entered the port of Syra and re
ceived from the telegraph station a batch
of dispatches containing definite Instruc
tions from the French Government re
garding carrying out the sealed orders
which were handed to the Admiral previ
ous to his leaving Toulon. These dis

"When the French Government decided
to send a French squadron to Turkey, it
debated whether to seize the customs at
Salonica, Beirut or Smyrna, as It was re
llzed that the receipts of one of these
three big ports would be required to pro
duce a sufficient sum to pay off the
French claims without a long occupation,
which was considered Inadvisable. The
choice of M. Dolcastse fell on Smyrna,
which offers equal advantages to the oth
er ports, without having their political
"Saturday, however, came the dispatch
from M. Baptiste, announcing the Issuing
of the Sultan's lrade accepting the Loran
do claim m its entirety, as France de
manded. This dispatch slightly modified
the aspect of the situation. Inasmuch
as M. Dekusse came to the cn"Jushn
that the Sultan would now settle tno
money claims and would, within a fi'W
days, produce the guarantees which
France demanded for their nayment. The
necessity for seizing big cu'nms, there
fore, became less pressing, altboueh tho
necessity for occupying Turkish territory,
in order to exercise pressure and com
pel the Sultan to concede the demands
respecting Turkej's disregard of French
treaty rights, still remained urgent. Tho
government, therefore, decided that Ad
miral Calllard should occupy a couple of
ports on the Island of Mityiene. which 13

the government's Impression that the SuL
tan will satisfactorily settle the monetary
question without delay prove unjustified
and the customs receipts at Mityiene
prove Insufficient to meet the French
claims, Smyrna can jet bo occupied.
"In the meant me the occupation of the,
ports on the Island of Mityiene is more
convenient from- a military point of view,
as the French cannot be easily disturbed
on that Island, wnerens Smyrna, being
on the mainland. Its occupation might
have more serious developments than de
sired. The French Government, however,
trusts that the whole difficulty will very
shortly be arranged to Its satisfaction,
and hopes that the treaty stipulations will
be carried out by the Issue of trades, such
as giving certain French schools permis

withheld, and also by giving official rec
