The death of Mayor (lav nor completely

that the outlook Is more confusing than
ever.

Mayor's death produces these changes t
The man whom politician' have regarded
as the second man or possibly the victor
In the race Is gone.
The Piddle which has vexed the .fusion
committee, namely the queation whether
Mr. McAneny, Mr. Prendergast and the
other fusion nominees should go on the
Ggynor ticket. Is partly solved.
Tammany men say that at least half,
possibly tWO-thlrdS, of the Mayor's support
will pass to Judge MeCall, despite the
fact that they have said that three
quarters of the Mayor's vote would be
drawn from Mitchel.
The fuslonlsts aay that the Issue Is
now clear between Taintnany Hall and
fusion, the effect of which will be to the
advantage of John Purroy Mitchel.
These estimates are predicated on the
assumption that there will be no suc
cessor to Mayor Gaynor on the non-fuion.

agreed that the situation la now thrown

Mr. Mitchel la atill free to go on the
league ticket If he geta a chance, even
though the cor diary situation of Mr Mc
Aneny and Mr. PrendsrgaSt Is in a
measure cleared up. Mr. McAneny said:
"I can simply call attention to the
fact that I advised Mr. Mitchel at the
time he wrote the letter lo the Inde
pendence League not to decline the
designation, and he was relieved of any
obligation. We have not changed our
minds since."
Future of Ticket.
In the back of the minds of fuslonlsts j
and Tammany men alike waa the great
question of whether the Gaynor ticket
la to be continued. Michael Kurat, a
member of the Oaynor committee from
Krooklyn, aald that the (iaynor men that
he knew would not think of Mitchel for
a moment.
"Does that mean a new man at the
head of the third ticket?" he waa asked.
'That la my Idea exactly," he aald. "I
am sure ths whole lesgue would be be.

Republican leaders are aure that, the
third ticket la not dead, Mr. Ridder to
the contrary notwithstanding. Republi
can conservatives who Intended to vote
under the shovel were asking one another
yesterday what they should do. To vote j
for Mitchel waa impossible.
Many of them turned toward Judge I

long hatred of Tammany Hall. Kx-Pub- '
