SCHEME TO DEFEA T
MA \0R VIEHMANN FOR

Four Names will be Placed Before the Convention to be Voted Upon

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
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withdrawn, perhaps the one having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
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

was declared that Mr. Gannon would

Judge Kirkpatrick, in the United
States Court at Trenton, yesterday,
appointed J. 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.
