proved considerably, and while still
discussing politics, a subject that ap
parently unbalanced him, he is not

meetings were held, men gave inter
views to the uaners, the ministers
took up the matter in the pulpits
and united with law-abiding citizens
ii; a demand that vice and lawless-
ress which were making Utica notori
ous should be stamped out. Still Mayor
Sherman, the creature of the gam-
ling gang, remained obdurate. Asa
last resort a movement was started to
take the matter before the governor
of the state and demand the removal
of Mayor Sherman. This action
coupled with the fact that the spring
elections were coming on frightened
the gang and after consulting with
the ring leaders, Mayor Sherman de
cided to enforce the law. His older
closing these places went into effect
just . three weeks before the charter
election. So notorious had Mayor
Sherman's administration become that
even the ring feared to renominate
him, and an independent movement
resulted in the election of a mayor on
the citizens ticket. The story of
Mayor Sherman's conduct in office is
told in the newspapers of Utica from
tiay to day during- hi3 term of office.
When he retired the Utica Press, an
independent paper, said if him: "May
or Sherman s exit from official station
has long been impatiently waited for
by the people; and "Svhen. on jester
aay he stepped down and out there
was all over the city an uncommuni
tated feeling of relief. The last has
been heard of this abject tool of the
gang for an indefinite period. If he
could be forgotten, as easily as he has
been dropped, it were well for him
. . . Most citizens would be glad
rever to remember that this nincom
poop and uncapable one occupied the
highest office in the city . . . His
disappearance is a good riddance in
deed it is. It was too much to expect
that he would go out decently; and
lils final acts were in keeping with his
previous ones. Like a cuttle fish that

. . . . In office, surrounded by mem
bers of the gang, he was insensible to

He has too long trained in company
that is devoid of shame to care much
what honorable men say of him.''
This was the comment of an inde
pendent newspaper in Mr. Sherman's
home town following his retirement
from the mayor's chair. He ' is the

publican, party is asking the people to

man is the president of the ice trust
of that. city. Before th? organization
of this trust about 'three years
there was competition in the ice. busi
ness in Utica. -Mr. Sherman and his
associates,- however, saw an oppor
tunity to establish a monopoly and
make money. They obtained the ex- 1
elusive right to the only pure ice su;t-
ly within the vicinity of tire city. 3

previously procured ice. Then by
buying out a rival concern they estab

Piediately advanced the price of ice.
his fact is easily established by rPf-j
erence to tae circular notices which
the trust published at the time. Mr. '
Sherman's ice trust also refused to sell
its product from wagons on the street
to poor people who were not in a po
sition to become regular customer.-;.
The trust insisted that those whom it
served should pay a stipulated amount
each month and the pleadings of the
poor for ice in fho hottest weather
were met with the cold blooded an
swer that they must become regular
customers or go without ice. The
files of the Utica newspapers as re
cently as last year show the com
plaints which were made by philan
thropic people against the operation
of Mr. Sherinan'a ice trust. Ths
IJev. Dr. William D. Wallace, pastor of
the Tabernacle Baptist church' of
Utica was one who preached a ser
mon denouncing the methods of th-?
trust and declaring that the men re-
ponsible could not be followers of
Jesus Christ. A synopsis of his ser
mon was printed in the Utica papers
o- July 31. 1907. Speaking of Mr.
Sherman, who was and still Is presi
dent of the Utica ice trust. Dr. Wal
lace said: "It Is all nonsense for a
man to shout patriotism somewhere
else, and then come to his own town
&cd say that the poor man cannot
have Ice unless his name is on the
regular list of customers." The meth
cds of Mr. Sherman's trust have not
been changed and the president of
the concern is the man whom the re
publican party Is asking tho voters of
Ihe country to make vice president of
the U. S. : , .
Cannon Aided JVoiulnaioa.
Mr. Sherman's nomination for vice
president was brought about through
speaker cannon ana . his congres
sional coterie. His selection was a
victory for the reactionaries for Mr.
Sherman has been Speaker Cannon's
most faithful lieutenant In enforcing
the rules which gag the house of rep
resentatives in its legislative action.
He ' Is equally responsible with the
speaker for the failures of important
legislation which the people have de
manded. Mr. Sherman's record as
the mayor of Utica, as president of
the ice trust, and as a reactionary
member of the house, should be
f tudled by every voter.
