NEW YORK, May X4.-Lewl Nixon,
the teadier of Tarmnany Hall for neatly
six months, resricned that position to
day at ameeting of the district lead
ers held in Tammany-Hall. While the
resignation Waa not ecytirely unexpect
ed, it waa not thought - Nixon would
take such positive action until a later
date, flrjrt awaiting the action of the
leaders to see if they would give him
a Vote of confWenc. InMead of this
he refuadrTo allow mny voteif confl-
denoe, and went so far as''to eav he
could no longer retain his self-respect
if he. remained air leader, ,;
; At a meeting of the Fachem ol

Feiuver, Grand Sachem, ,waa frus
trated by o-tie. there being 4x Saehr
emu of the thirteen for, and six against
retention, the 1 thirteenth, George C

that timefc&uaed a general discussion
of ihe possibility of Nixon losing con-
trot of the org.jnlratlon. and a com
bination) headed toy John F. - Carroll
ousting him. Nixon, in ah interview
on Tuesday, said! that if he could not
have the confidence of the leaders h
would get out. When Nixon arrived
at Tanrrmany Halt -today, all thirty
seven leaders were present ;Nlxou
"Gentlemen.! I have decided to n
