Incoape? tency prevailed therein wh're ability was most ne, ?ssary. A typical illustration of the ?neffl Cient and Improper manner in which .aid Highway Department was oper? ated is as .ollows: Contracts were for? mally entered Into between contractors and the State of New York for the performance of work upon state roa?ls and the payment ?if large hums ot money therefor whi?h were termed sup? plemental contracta, meaning contracts ??ntered into after the original contra, t had been mad?- These supplement il 1 ontractfl in many Instances were made, entered Into and Mgned on or about the day that the payment under tne ?am? was nade, and long aft. r ? ? time when the work performed, or, is is the fa? t, more often pretended to in performed, by the contractors hid passed As a result of the above obnoxious conditions in the Highway Department.

To those familiar with the situation it was ?dear, however, that the Mayor did not want to commit himself on the sub Je?-t of his caratHecy until he had some more definite understanding with Tam? many. It is said that l'ire Commissioner .Johnson, who has taken up the duties of managing th ? Qejmor boom, was tol?l at Tammany Hall that a ?ierlslon had been re.-i'-hed not to renomlnate the Mayor At the same time. It is said. Commissioner Johnson conveyed word to ?'harles F. Murphy that the Mayor would run Inde? pendently anyway In ?ase he was not made the regular nominee of the organi? zation There Is re-AHon to believe that there was' a gr?-at deal of bluffing in both state? ments The situation so far as Tammany' Is concerned Is Just this. They do not want to renominate Oaynor unless they have to T>o they have to? That la th? BOesttOB that Ig agitating Mr. Murphy. It has not basa SSttlsd and Is not likely to be until the last minute Mr Murphy does not have to have a solution of th? problem until 8 p. at Saturday, when theJ City designating committee Is to meet la Terrees Garden. If by any chance the Republicans? should not take the city ticket named by*. the fusion committee, or even If the feeH lng agaln?t It should seem to be so strond as seriously to Imperil Its BOCOSSS at the? polls, Murphy would promptly and cheer?* fully turn Mr QajmOT down. la that case his candidate would be Justice Victor J? I lowllng. However if the fusion situation im? prove?, m the cour??? of the week and the Republican organization gives evidence D_ supporting both the city and the count/ tickets ? nsmsd by the fasten manag?T Mr. Murphy may go back to his original intention .?f renomlnating Mayor Gaynor. Frankly, the Tammany leadt-rs are wor rled '>r the leeling against them that ha.? I sen ?tlrreo up because of the Sulzer I rope? hment. They realize that there are thoueanda oi i ?-"pie in town wh" are ready and anxious to hit a Tammany i.?-ad wherever they can see it Howling, running for Mayor, would be B Tammany head, and th?- avalanche of brtchs that arouid go his way might overwhelm him As far as Mayor Oaynor is concerne?!, he does nm ?rant to come out openlj with his attitude until he discovers what Tarn? many has in mind. He has told R. Ross Appleton, head of th?- Oaynor committ i. that he need make no farther plans to "notify" him until he (Oaynor) send- for h m if Oaynor should be tuned loara by Tammany and should run indepen I? |y it might be true, as th?
