GAYNOR TICKEI,
IS)
"Shovel" Slate, He Intimates,
Will Also Include McAneny to
Head Aldermen and Pren
dergast for Controller.
TO TRIM TIGER'S CLAWS
Campaign Manager Says Mitch
el's Pouting and Stamping Are
Not Going to Keep Mayor's
Forces from Trying to
Save Estimate Board.
LEAGUE MAY GET MITCHEL
Committee on Vacancies, It Is Said,
Will Make a Second Offer to the
Collector?Fusion Managers
May Let Candidates Ac?
cept Outside Help.
Joeeph Johnson, the Gaynor eam- ,
paign manager, indicated last night
that the Gaynor nominators would run
below the Mayor's name the following
tickot:
For Controller?William A. Prender
gast. ,
For President of the Board of Al?
dermen?-George McAneny.
For District Attorney?Charles S.
i/Vhitman.
Johnson did not make any definite
announcement to this effert, but ln
parts of twn statements which he ts
Buad intimations to that effeot were
put between the linee. The Whitman
part of this matter came in a state
ment in which Johnson denied that
there was any likelihood of putting
Michael J. Drummond on the Gaynor
ticket f?r Cont oller, in the course of
whlch the Mayor's campaign manager
6aid;
"But. except in the case of Mr. Whit?
man. T do not find any sentiment :n
the Gaynor Fusion and Nominating
I.eague for taking any leading eandi?
dates from the Tammany ticket."
The indication as to Prendergast aiid
McAneny aas found in a Johnson
atatement which denounced Mitchel for
hie declaratlon that the Gaynor candi?
dacy was a Tammanv "decoy," and
which concluded with this paragraph:
"The whole trouble with 'he \n\injt
man (Mitchel) is that he has aticer
tained that the Kepublicans hav left
him in a bodv, as they have a right to
leave one who cannot make gred his
WOrtf; that all his pouting and stamp
ing are not going to keep the Gaynor
forces from doing. in the matter of .. ,r
ticket. that which wiii at least save the
Poard of Estimate from the elutcbea 4
Murphy and Foley."
With these practica] a..noun.ementa
from the Gaynor manajjers that Preti
dergast and McAneny were to be taken
in on the Mayor's ticket, it develop-d
yestcrday that IfltOChel wiii in all
probability have another offer made to
him to head the Independenee League
ticket.
The exeeutive committee of the com
n.i-'.e ,.f ia; \\ aaa reported. will
Dieel t'.-night for the chief purpose of
adoptina; a reaolutlon, w-ht.-h la said t->
have been drawn by Mltchel*? friends.

I renderffast. as well 44 Whitman, from
any re?i ..1 fancled oniigati.-.n m stand
or fall toj?ether. it is designed. ... oord
ing to the story cin ulated yesterday,
chiefly for the purpose of giving
Mitchel an opportunity to retreat from
the indepondent poattlOB he first took
with regard to the Hearst nnmination.
On the other hand, and supplement
injt this story. lt wa? said that the In
dependenoe League committe,. on va?
cancies would proceed lmmediately to
a second selection of Mitchel aa tha
Mayoralt) iandidate of the leasrue. with
an Baaurance from Mitchel himself that
its BOCOnd prr.ffer of a nommation
would not be refused, in view of the
de\ elopments affecting the other fusi.m
nominees sin. e.
The laasjuers have until Tuesday
night to name a man for the he.ad of
their ticket. but even if they were not
prepared to put Ifttchei'S name on at
that time they have been advised that
the Board of Klections . ould have paa*
