Republican Convention Called
to Nominate Solitary
GIVES STRENGTH TO IVINS
Withdrawal of Flammer Causes the
Leaders to Yield to Popular De
mand Jerome Winning
From All Parlies.
NEW YORK, Oct. 26. (Special.) With
only one dissenting voice and acting un
der a legal opinion rendered "by Joseph
H- Choate. the executive committee oC
the Republican County Committee late
today decided to reconvene the New York
County Convention tomorrow night In
Murray Hill Lyceum, the call for the
convention car-ying with It the recom
mendation that William Travers Jerome
be nominated for District Attorney to
fill the vacancy created yesterday by the
resignation of, Charles A. Flammer, who
in retiring from the ticket advised his
followers to vote for Mr. Jerome.
The committee, which almost unani
mously voted for Jerome today, opposed
his nomination by 27 Votes to S when
his name waa suggested for the Repub
lican ticket a few weeks ago. The con
ditions created by the campaign caused
a change In sentiment among the Re
publican leaders which culminated last
night in the withdrawal of Mr. Flam
mer and resulted today in the naming
of Mr. Jerome for nomination by the
County Convention tomorrow night. The
only voice raised in opposition to the
course determined upon by the execu
tive committee was that of Abraham
Gruter. an ApscnYbly district leader.
who declared his constituents would not
vote for Mr. Jerome.
Jerome's Election Assured.
Flamraer's retirement is due to the fact
that the bulk of the Republican vote was
lor Jerome anyhow, and tho party feared
riioiiiniic: Apfpat- Ivlns also made it a
personal matter. A few district leaders
oppose Jerome and they will still work
acninst him. but cannot control 5000
PnilticlAim airreo " that the new de
velopments practically assure Jerome's
election. Every New York paper except
Hearst's Is for Jerome, and this is one
cause of Flammer's retirement. Os
borne, the Tammany candidate, is off
the stump and says he has a soro throat.
but It is believed Murphy took him off
because of tho breaks he made. Jerome's
campaign manager, Howard Gans, claims
tonight 50,000 majority for Jerome. Re
publicans believe Ivlns is greatly
strengthened, as he was the only candi
date to fight for Jerome and Jerome's
frlendyj may show gratitude at the polls.
Betting is even on Jerome, three to one
Subject of Hottest Fight.
The office of District Attorney of
New York City pays a salary of $15,000
a year and, while any first-class lawyer
with an established practice can easily
hopo to make much more than that, yet
the fight for this place has promised
from the first to be the most interesting
in the city this Fall. Seven candidates
have been making the most active kind
of a fight for the position.
Three of these, of course, do not real
ly count. They are the nominees of the
Prohibitionists. Social Labor Party and
Socialists, formerly called the Social
Democracy, and whoso candidate for
President, Eugene V. Debs, made a sen
sational race two years ago.
The Prohibition vote two years ago
was only 376, the Social Labor 3540 and
the Social Democracy 11:318 out of a
grand total of 336,091. Naturally the
nominees, this year, and I confess I do
not even know their names, are not se
riously regarded, by themselves or
anybody else. But they are fighting
Analysis of the Vote.
Tho vote four years ago when Jerome
carried the county by 25.000, cannot be
regarded seriously as a basis for com
parison this year. The registration now
Is only a few thousand over 1903, and
that gives better data upon which to
In 1903 McCIellan's vote was 188,681,
wiiilo Low received 132,178, a Tarn
many plurality of 56,503. As the minor
parties generally cast the same vote
year in and year out, seldom losing or
gaining, it will be seep that three can
didates, -with Flcmmor out, will strug
gle to obtain a plurality out of about
These three candidates are James W.
Osborne, Tammany; Clarence J. Shearn,
Municipal Ownership Partyf and Wil
liam Travers Jerome.
It is tho easiest thing in the world
to show by figures how anyone of this
trio can be elected, but the hardest
thing to be satisfied -with your own
mathematics, if you know anything
Tammany concedes Hearst 100,000
votes. They figure that 30,000 of these
will bo Republican, and 70,000 Demo
cratic, DUt expect to practically make
up their loss by gaining 50,000 disgrun
But the Republicans who are expect
ed to vote for McClellan are nearly all
Jerome men, and that complicates the
situation still more.
Estimate of Each Party.
Subsequent to Flammer's withdrawal
I have seen at "different headquarters
men misguided enough to figure on
the vote for District Attorney, and here
is how they worked it out on a basis of
a vote of 325,000, before Jerome secured
the Republican endorsement:
Tammany estimates Osborne, 163,003
Shearn, 75.000; Flammer, 65,000; Jerome,
25,000. Total. 325,003;
Republican estimate Flammer 120,-
000, Shearn 100,000, Osborne 90,000, Je
rome 15.000. Total 325.000.
Hearst man's estimate Shearn 150,
000, Osborne 85,000, Jerome 50,000,
Flammer 40,000. Total 325,000.
Jftromites' estimate Jerome -110,000,
Shearn 95,000, Osborne 70,000, Flam
mer 50,000. Total 325,000.
You will probably notice that the
totals agreed In these various esti
mates, but that nothing else did.
Jcromo Was Turned Down.
Tho District Attorney's turn-down
was bitterly resented by citizens of
all shades of public, opinion. It was
regarded as a peculiarly strong evi
dence of Jerome's popularity that
every one of the three Mayoralty can
didates was eager to have him on his
ticket, but -was primarily overruled by
the party's bosses and leaders.
Mayor McClellan made a personal
appeal to Leader Murphy on the sub
ject of Jerome, -who was also warmly
supported hy the Sulllvans and a num
ber of the Influential district leaders.
They realized his strength as a vote-
getter, but Murphy was angered at
some brutally frank remarks about
him which had been made by Jerome.
William M. Ivlns had accepted tho
Mayoralty Tiomlnatlon before the Re
publican County Convention was held.
He attended a council of the district
leaders and advised them to name
Jerome. In the convention the only
time the delegates displayed any en
thusiasm was when the District At
torney's name w.s mentioned.
The District Attorney had stated
that, in his opinion, Odell was a crook
and a grafter, and the caucus slate
was rushed through and Jerome was
not bn it then.
William Randolph Hearst sent Je
rome an Invitation to get on the Muni
cipal Ownership rubberneck wagon.
Mr. Jerome declined. He stated It
was for personal reasons.
The Citizens' Union has been the
only organized body to back Jerome,
but his petition was signed by some
of the leading men In the city. In
cluding lawyers, bankers and business
Jerome has been assured of the vote
of men of every party. Republicans
by the thousand have long slnoe de
clared for him, and among the Demo
crats on the East Side he Is particular
Issues In Jerome Campaign.
He opened his campaign with a meet
ing which packed Carnegie Hall and was
cheered longer and louder, and In a more
genuinely hearty manner than were any
of the Mayoralty candidates. Chairman
John G. Milburn, formerly a prominent
Buffalo lawyer, and at one time seriously
considered as a candidate for Governor,
presided at the meeting, and made tho
refreshing statement that delegates had
simply become rubbor stamps to be used
to register tho will of the bosses. When
Jerome took the stand he attacked Odell
and Murphy simultaneously, alluding to
them as the "Grocer of Ncwburgh," and
the "Bartender of Good Ground." He
declared he was not personally Interested
In the election, "it was up to the people."
"I have made good," he said, "and If
you do not re-elect me, the fault will be
yours, not mine."
Mr. Shearn, who Is Hearst's personal
counsel. Is making his campaign based
on a pledge that he will send McCall. Mc
Curdy and all the life insurance criminals
to jail If he Is elected.
Jerome's fight has been on the theory
that the people should re-elect a man who
has "made good," and that the arbitrary
desire of a party boss should not be al
lowed to snuff out the light of a faithful
Mr. Osborne seeks votes on a platform
that Jerome Is arbitrary, unconstitutional
and a firebrand.
Bad Handicap Removed.
Jerome was handicapped in his Inde
pendent race by the fact that his name
appeared all alone on the ballot, and
many persons who desired to vote for
him might have abandoned the effort
when they got .into the booth and dis
covered how difficult It was for him to
be elected. Now that he Is assured of a
placo on the Republican ticket, he will
poll his full personal strength in addltllon
to that of the party.
They flim-flammed Flammer when they
Induced him to run for District Attorney
He probably came to realize this fully
and withdrew to avoid Ingnomlnlous de
feat. "He needed an undertaker not a
campaign manager," declared Louis
Klaproth, of Brooklyn, tonlcht.
