f VOL. XXV. NO. 44 ' PERTH AMBOY, N. J.. TUESDAY', SEPTEMBER 29, 1903 SECOND^EDITION SCHEME TO DEFEA T MA \0R VIEHMANN FOR SENA TE NOMINA TION. Four Names will be Placed Before the Convention to be Voted Upon on the First Ballot—No one Knows what the Next Move will be--Gannon, Quaid and Si/zer Said to be in League to De. \ .... ) i feat New Brunswick's Mayor. W Democratic politics, as far as the " nomination for State senator is con i cerned, is well mixed at present and V it all depends which one of the numer ous candidates a man favors as to which one he thinks will win. The harmony and smoothness which mark ed the Republican convention, will not bo a feature when the Democrats meet. That much is certain. One who is known to be well acquainted with the inside workings of the party told a representative of the Evening News that without a doubt there would be four names placed before the convention for the first ballot. These names would be George A. y Viehmann, John J. Quaid, George Silzer and Bernard M. Gannon. The News informant stated that although Mr. Gannon had positively announced , that he was not in the race, he has i yielded to the demands of his friends ~ in this end of the county and will allow his name to be presented at the i convention. After the first ballot, there is no I one who can tell what will happen. ^Jt appears that George Silzer, the lounty chairman, at present, has the big end of the stick. His main object is to defeat Viehmann. To do this, he has played his cards well and, according to the News informant, there is some sort of an agreement between the Silzer, Quaid and Gannon forcqs. The county chairman’s plan is to have the three names presented in addition to Viehmann in order to split tiie votes as much as possible. The vote on the first ballot will show the comparative strength of the differ ent candidates and it is thought the combined votes for Quaid. Silzer and Ganuon, will far outnumber the Vieh i mann vote. One of the three names presented by the triumvirate will be withdrawn, perhaps the one having the smallest number of votes. In this way the Silzer forces hope to finally settle on one candidate and keep all the delegates who voted for one of the tnree opposed to Viehmann, in line. In this end ot the county, according to the News informant, the delega tions will be soild for Gannon on the first ballot. This is anderstood to mean Perth Amboy, South Amboy, Woodbndge and Carteret. Regarding the published reports that the Ganuon forces would swing to Quaid on the second ballot, the News representative was told that it was just as probable /that the Quaid forces would swing I P, NYGREEN, Successor to L.

It was further definitely stated that the enrire dele gation from the Amboys, which means the Gannon men, was ready at any time to vote for George Silzer. It was declared that Mr. Gannon would willingly step aside in favor of the county chairman. It was pointed out that, after Gannon, Mr. Silzer was Amboy’s choice. When asked why it was that Mayor Viebmann was so opposed here, the reply was that local Democrats conld not forget that in 1896 Mr. Viehmann called the Democrats of that time, fifty centers. But the greatest reason for opposing the New Brunswick mayor is beoause Mr. Gannon is so popular here. w. cTtHT CONVENTION TOMORROW.

Kearney Rice, of New Brunswick, as auxiliary receiver for the Gr-at Eastern and National Clay companies, of Perth Amboy, for this district, replacing ttie Continental Trust Company, of New York, appoint ed receiver for the companies in the suit of the Standard Vitrified Conduit Company. 1 he trust company con tested the appointment for an auxil iary receiver on the grounds that such would not result for the best interests of the concerns. The appointment is a result of a petition filed w/ith the court in behalf of Patrick WlVte & Sons, who are creditors of tleiclay company, which is one of the Pe\field concerns. The interests of the lobal concern in the adjustment of the affairs of the clay company are such that the court deemed them worthy of more equal representation and tht ancilliary re ceiver is the result. It is understood that an effort was made to have a Perth Amboy man appointed reoeiver. In conversation with a News repre sentative this morning, Mr. Depue, of Newark, who has had charge of the White’s interests, sud that while he had not been officidfl notified of the appointment of JudOT>»iPA°e a* re ceiver, he had every reason to believe that it was so. __ — GLEASON GETS 90 DAYS Patrick Gleason, the old character, who, as told in the News several days ago, was given a night’s polio headquarters, was tak^^^J^Pi station honse last night at a ltrt^iour.
