VOTERS OF NEW YORK TURN
THE TAMMANY TIGER LOOSE
John P. Mitchell.
New York, Nov. 5. Charles Fran
cis Murphy, leader of what was con
sidered a month ago the best political
machine Tammany ever constructed,
has been recalled by the voters of
New York, and the Tigers face the
leanest four years in their history.
Tammany Hall lost no only con
trol of the mayor of New York, when
its .candidate, JVtcCall, was over-
rwhelmmgly defeated by the Fusion
candidate Mitchell, who will be New
York's youngest mayor, but it lost the
comptroller; president of the board
of aldermen; president of borough
Manhattan; president Bronx Bor
ough; president Borough Kings; pres
ident Borough Queens; the board es
timate passing upon administration
of' city's finances, all of above being
members; control board of aldermen;
control state assembly and all of the
important county offices in the coun
ties comprising greater New York.
Now that the landslide is complete,
the question is how Tammany is to
be reorganized. Murphy says hewJll
riot quit.'but the" Tiger never forgives
what is popularly termed within the
ranks "at headedness," and the dis
trict leaders are already scanning the .
horizon for a new "chief."
The election of Sulzer at Albany as
assemblyman is also a s,lap in the face
to Tammany. Sulzer was carried on
a wave of popular sentiment aroused
by his position as "martyr" to the
Tammany corruption. He will not,
however, attain his ambition to be
speaker of the lower house when it
meets for organization. A regular
Republican will have that honor, the
Republicans having gained control.
