New York Political Situation. New York. Sept 12. Shock from the news of Mayor William I Gay nor s sudden death at sea still welsh heavily upn New York City todav From beneath this weight develop ments in the complicated mayoralty situation emerged but slowly, and as sumed no more tangible form than opinions advanced by arlous political leaders as to the effect which the mayors death would have upon the election of November 4. In some quarters t was held that the situation was very much simpli fied; in others that tho political out look was Btill more muddled In either case it was an entirely differ ent situation which the leaders con fronted today with Tammany and an ! tl-Tammany forces asserting that the elimination of the mayor would swing votes to their respective candidates, Chairman Bdward C. McCall of the public lervioe commission, and John Puirov Mitcholl, collector of the port. The triangular feature of the cam paign upset by the mayor's death is reinstated to 6ome extent, however, by the designation yesterday of lames J. Allen, a lawyer, as the Independ ence league candidate for mayor. John Purroy Mitchell, the fusion j nominee, had been first asked to head the Independence league tlckeL but refused It was said, however, that Allen s name might bo withdrawn af ter the primaries next Tuesday and Mitchel 8 substituted should he consent to withdraw his declination The question whether Gaynor's sup porters who brought him forth by x? tition as an Independent candidate for re-election would let their inde pendent movement die with the may or was still an open question today. Members of the Gaynor committee were unwilling to discuss their plans iut the early report that they would abandon their stand against the other candidates was offset bv assertions that Herman Ridder William R Wil cox, former -chairman of the public service commission, and George Me Anvny, fusion cendldate for president of the board of aldermen, were being talked of as possible leaders of the mayoralty ticket which they proposed to have Gaynor head Predicted on the assumption that the Gaynor supporters will give up their plans entirely, Tammany men claim that at least half, and possibly two-thirds of the mayors support, will pass to McCall despite the fact that thev previously asserted that three-quarters of the major's vote would be drawn from Mitchel, the fu sion nominee. The fuslonists declare that the is sue now x clarified between Tarn many and fusion, the effect of which will be strongly to the advantage of the fusion candidate It wa.-t appar ent, however, that neither side had ; got Its bearings sine the unexpecb I nd death of lhe mayor and something t In the natore of a truce barred olfl- GOVERNORS' DAUGHTERS j PROVE THEY DESERVE BALLOT yyTop, iWssIonaDlnne Otii) yf WlB8 Ailcen Dunne; bottom.
