Price, chairman of the executive committee and floor manager for the adherents of Mr. MeAneny, said he wanted to address the com nilttee. "I feel." he said, "that Mr. MeAneny' strength has been overlooked. With the feeling in the community, us In this room, that he Is actually the best man for the Job. I believe Mr. MeAneny will be .very strons at the polls.

He had on his hands two of ths I largest undertakings confronting the city, i the Wesl Side waler Improvement Pan and the South llrooklyn dock Improve ments. He went out leaving these Jobs unfinished. It may be he didn't want to finish the West Side Improvement plans All I ask Is thnt this committee shall have the courage of Its convictions " KleclloneerliiK t'hnrue. Henry Moskowitz created same excite- mem oy neciaring mat outsiders wele taking advantage of the open door and were electioneering among the members of the committee. Mr. Price took all the MeAneny ad hereiits out of the room during the recess fter the fifth ballot. There were twenty three of them and twenty-two voted to stick to Mr. MeAneny as tluir choice. A ballot on second choice revealed tha favor of eighteen members for Mr. Whit man and five for Mr. Mltehel. Tho Mltehel followers were elated with the steadfastness of the Hull Moose mem btsfi to Mr. Mltehel. Had there been any defection from him It would' havo gon to Mr. MeAneny. When all chance of Bull Moose support appeared lost to tin) followers of Mr. MeAneny they began to o over to the District Attorney, The committee wuh sweltering in the .Gretn ttoom of tho Fifth Avenue building. Everybody had his coat off. even Mr. Hap Rood. He stood It for a while, but fol lowed the others after an hour of steam ing. He was the very picture of a pre siding officer for a fusion committee. His gavel was the leg; of a broken table. By his side sat Nathan A. Smyth. In front were the members of the committee ajl In shirt sleeves and all perspiring. The Three Fall Tickets. They didn't know whether or not to ad mit the newspaper men, but having de bated the proposition, decided to do so. The first thing that attracted the atten tion of the newspaper men and the mem bers of the general committee was the production of a great sheet whereon were written the three tickets upon which the executive committee had decided. Here are the three tickets: MAYOK Whitman Mltrhel. McAnenjr. COM1TKOM.EH. Prenderca't l'rendergast Prenderinst, PltKSWKNT HOARD OP Al.DKIt.MKN. MeAnsny. MeAneny, Marcus M.

Henry Moskowltr. placed the name of Mr. Mltehel before the committee, night at the start he said : "I have asked myself this question: .Jave p ,h(. ,,., rlRht to Vlt fop the best man If we thought he would be de- feated "It It has been said," he continued, "that a newspaper forced this nomination.
