STILL IN DOUBT New Mayor Spends Greater Part of Christmas at Home of His Mother. ANTI-TAMMANY MEN DISAPPOINTED Believe He Should Use Patron age to Help Build Indepen dent Organization. In spite of the fact that his BH.U 86 La a state of absolute uncertalnty. Mayrr ?lect Mltchel spent hla time for the great? er part of yesterday in th? unadulterated enjoyment of Christmas Day. He had dinner wlth his mother at No. -117 Weal MM street and ppent the greater part el the day there. For a few hour? he went out to call oa f-dendfl, but lt was said ln the most poaU tive manner that the Vtslt had noihmg |a do wlth polltlcs or appointments. But 10-dav Mi. Mltchel arlll have forg -tten all about the merry Yuletide and will be worklng overtlme in tr.vin-r 1" ftame ?'? slate that will not only eult himself. but at the aame time will prevent the preat majorlty of those who supported hlm from denounclng hlm as unpratcful. Mr. Mltchel enters the last week befor he takes offlce without a sinsle place Uaed beyond the posslbillty of a change. So those who have talk.-d wlth hlm believe. The word "belleve" ls used advlsedly, be? cause Mr. Mitchel apparentlv has not con flded hla thoughts on all the appolntments to ary one man. The two big appointments that Mr. Mltchel had decided upon-the City Cham berlaln and the Corporatlon Cunsel- have been subjected not only to heavy artl'lcy flre but also sharpshoothm' on tho part of nearly all the allies in the recent fusion campalgn. Not only are the Republlcana and the '?n.greasives displeaJ-ed over the aelectlon of Henry Blruers for Clty Chamberiain and of Oeorge V. Mullan for Corporatl-n Counael. but the independent l'.nuvrais as well. It may he said without reserve tbat ihe independent lVmocrats ar-. bitterly dlsappolnted over the attltude Mr. Mltchel has taken in regard to asslatlng thelr 8*0 tl-Tammany plaaa. He has said thal hfl will make no appointments to thal '"'!? and UP to date bfl has b-.-**i Bticklng to that statement. The lndercndent l.?emocrats hfld that the "Wilson admlnl-tration, becauae cf the faet that it was known to favor the, ilec tlon of Mr. Mitchel. contrlbuted not a Ut* Ue to his i-ampaign. They beM-Jva tt wo-il'l be no more than rlght tha* 1 <* should make BO***** of his appointments with a vlew to assisting ihe friends of the T'resident who wish to bulld up an .nde pmdent organization. lt ls said Ihat th.- President has he n kept hrferssed of the attltude of Mr. Mitchel through OsteaMl K. M. UOU88. Neither Mr. Bruere nor Mr. Muilan had ever flgured ln any political movement. independent or otherwtse. untll they jolned the Mitchel campaign forces last fall. Both are young men, Hnd that argu ment ls being used against them. But naturally it doe3 not appeal to Mr. MltCtt* el. who ia only thirtg-four years old him gfllt Mr. Mullan. who was born ln thls. dty, is forty-one years old. lic has been B law partner of Mr. Mitchel sin- ?

Those Who know how Mr. Mitchel valurs the ;tdvice of Mr. Bruere do not want hlm as a member of tha Mayor s cablnet. because of thelr bdlef that he would at once attaln th-* plaee of ranklng member. To say that Mr. Mttehel had 00 late at all would nol 88 trua. But. such as it ts. lt ia estremely tentative, and subjeel to ati sorts of chaagBS in ihe romiim weeh How far Mr..
