Mur phy, leader of Tammany Hall, today said that he nad not ob served any sentiment In Tammany lor the nomination of District Attor ney Travera Jerome for Oovernor by the Democratic state convention, but there waa, he said, plenty tf sentiment tor W.

Mr. Murphy declared tliat lie was not tuinmltted to any ran dldate, but It was the rule of Tarn many to lie guldetl by the sentiment of tne organisation, and he would be guided by It nt the state convention Mr. Murphy said the Tammany del egntea to the convention would lie Hiuml oy the unit rule. District Attorney Jerome tonight riitve out the following statement "It Is no surprise to me to Murphy practically declaring Hearst. The only rensin for my lug nu nctlvo part lu politics Ilnd ror Ink this year wns to carry on the light ot lust year, wide" was a light to free the people and imrty from the domination of Just surh political panhandlers.

"Tho servant Ima become the mas ter nnd thu executive machinery, con trolled by small groups of sulflsn nnd unusually corrupt men, has been used to deprive thu people of thu Hirtles of their political freedom. "The light Is not to destroy par ties. Parties are essential to the proper working of our pollllcnl lustl tutlons. Thu fight Is to free the par ties from such men ns Murphy, to deprive them of tho control of tho ex ecutive machinery, to restore It tu the dlschnrgu of the functions for which It was created, tho effectlvo expression of thu will of tho people who compose the party. . "When this Is dune wo shall have lendors and not bosses. We shall tnen nave conventions of real delegates seeking to determine whom thu poo pie want placed lu nomination. We snail hnvo candidates and public olu curs In whose choice the pipple's voice has bcon potent and who will fool that their responsibility Is to tho people ami not to some political boss who created thorn."
