By the time the polls closed, Gaynor money went begging at 1 to 3. There was far less confidence among the bettors, however, as to the re mainder of the democratic ticket.

FOUR BARE YEARS Analysis of Election Result Shows That Democrats Knifed the Tiger. New York, Nov, 3. Battle scarred Tam many, which yesterday elected a mayor hut lost a city, took up to-day the gloomy work of setting lis houso In order for four years of avowed antl-Tnmumny govern ment In New York city, Analysis phows that the election which resulted In tha defeat by tha fusion forcoi TAMMANV FACES PLURALITY of every Important Tammany-democratic candidate below the mayor, was morn of n victory for the nntl-Tammany demo crats -who had lined up with tho republi cans under the fusion banner than for the straight out republicans. Antl-Tnmmany democrats, elected on the republican-; fusion ticket, will for four years be In i aDsoiuie control or the city's purse strings. They will have n clear majority In tho Imard of estttmato, one of the most powerful municipal bodlcH In any city In tho world, and will thereby have the spending of more than a billion dollars of the city's money.

Persistent rumors to-ilav had It that the attempt to create a new order of things for the New Voile city demo cracy was already under wnv. Charles F. Murphy. who itioccedcd Rlclvird Crnker as Tammanv 'eadrv. came out with r. fo'innl denial of these rumors, at the same time denying a report that he was to be deposed from tho leader ship. "1 have no Intention of resigning." said Murphy, "t have not heard of any opposition to mo within the party and X have beard nothing about these re ported rumbling of discontent and ap proaching revolt." Tl.i- presonce of Richard rroker 1n thP ,,It. w.aF n miltter of considerate speculation to those who were study ing the situation, and the announcement that be hnd extended his vinlt live days longer than previously announced vns regarded as significant.

"Not for a mil lion dollars would 1 reconsider my deter mination to keep In the background. Ye, they nsked me to come hack, they al ways do that. But I'm too old rnd cni'ldn t stand the racket." TAMMANY'S AIJ1KP.MF.N I,n.S Complete returns on tho balloting In the aldei manic districts show that Tammany lost ground also In thnt body, arfd thnt the democratic ma jority will be cut down from SI to n majority by a single vote. In addi tion to this loss, several of the nom inally democrntlo votes from Urook lyn districts are the product of a fus ion between the democratic nnd Hearst Independent orees, and ire hardly to bo depended Jpon tn nun port their democratic colleagues In all Instances. William M. Ivlns, the rnp.ibllcan free-lance, who launched fie Hearst boom late In the campaign, offered ,,lR congratulations to the fusion can- lidutvs to-day. "It Is the greatest victory for -e-form that New York city has ever seen," snld Ivlns.
