vention la whether niggln controls a majority ol the votea in IV It he does hla slate will be named without further ado but if be does not there win he an tnter - esting contest fdr ef err place on the ticket from Mayor to Superintendent at Public Schools There are two opinions about Higgins power In the Municipal Convention That body win be composed of 164 delegates eighty - three of whom will constitute a majority The men who are not in the Boss ramp car positively that HIggtns will not t able to dictate to the nominees While Higgini himself says that the enemy will come about forty votes of controlling the eouventian The men who are not the Boss followers think the convention Is composed ef abont the following elements Sixty - five who will obey any and all commands of the boss sixty - five wBo are Independent who win not be whipped into line abont twenty who owe allegiance to Chute Conroy and McCord as their backers leaving about fourteen delegates unclassified It is said by the people who make this estimate that if Higgina begins to read a slate to the convention the slxly - five indedendenttwlllgo against lt They think that this is a free open fight to any one who wants a nomination H1GUIKS A5I G AN SOS On the other hand Colonel Gannon in one of his boastful moods taunted one of the enemy with the brag that he and Biggins had the convention by a clear majority of twelve He said that the enemy would not get a place on the ticket and that only the faithful were to be rewarded Colonel Gannon probably wss over - confidentconfident and too sanguine Higgins himself takes no rosy view of the situation He says that he and his friends together won the fight over the rival bosses and that he and they together control a majority of the delegates He does not claim that he can dictate to tbe entire combination that won the victory at the primaries To some of the delegates he can say come and they will come but he cannot issue orders to all in the combination in this peremptory way It Is probable that this is the true statement of the situation Higgina will have enough delegates in the convention that wiU be his obedient tools to give him great power but not enough to riae roujtn uua over suw leeiugs auu interests of any one else This state of affairs makes only one procedure possible to him Be must conciliate and compromise If he is to control the fat city offices which all political bosses so devoutly covet he must do something to put men who are not particularly known as his followers into the other places and of course such a course will break the slate He will have to fight hard to control the fat offices in the city government by nominating his candidates for them Even on this field he may not come off entirely tbe victor The convention therefore promises to be the scene of considerable independent action THE FIUST rLACE The first place on the ticket Is that of Mayor The tools of the boss do not often aplre to lead the ticket In the first place there is not so much money in the highest place and that is what professional politicians want There is considerable honor in leading the ticket and that is what the practical politician cares very little about There is therefore a treat deal of uncertainty about w ho shall be put up for Mayor Hemnst be a man who will - give moral character and popularity to the whole ticket or to use the expression in every Itractical politicians mouth the candidate or Mayor must be a man who can pnU the rest of the ticket - lrongta on the day of election M E Blake is much talked ot He ia said to be as good a runner before the people as there is in the party James B sUetson U also mentioned He is prominent in the financial circles of the city and it is thought he would add character and popularity to the ticket It was rumored yesterday on the street that W n Ditnond might be brought Into the fight bnt his best friends discredit this Of this scheme Higgins himself ssid It would be most unwise Ue said that Dimond while he did not get the nomination for Governor at Los Angeles at least came off second best Sow to run him for Mayor of the city would destroy his chances for future preferment especially li he should be defeated Again it is a maxim that practical politicians do not like to see violated that a man who is beaten for one office should sot come in at the last moment to smash the aspirations of a lot of candidates who have been fighting for another office To use the slang of the street that ia not smooth politics If a candidate is beaten for the office ha is after let him step aside and let the candidates who are figuring for tbe other offices have it out among themselves That is the rule of smooth politics It Is not believed therefore that Dlmcnds best advisers will permit his name to go before the convention There are other candidates who are mentioned for the office of Mayor Snper - visor Farwell ia urged in some quarters There is talk of putting tip some prominent merchant Uke L L Baker or WW Montague to head off a taxpayers movement which is almost certain to take place If tbe Republicans pot up a ticket of the old political hacks who have either held office or been office - seekers for the past twenty years TBI TXIASCHTSHIF The second place on the ticket Is that of Treasurer And about this office there will ftobably be an interesting struggle The ncumbent Baner at a critical junetnre in politics in this city deserted Biggins It was at the very inception of the revolt against that leader Conroy who was the chief deputy in the Recorders office aspired to the office of License Collector although the salary vas no better than the one he was receiving as Deputy Recorder Be asked Higgins to arrange that he should be Fogsrtys successor The Boss thought he was well enough off where he was as there was no difference in the salary and he thought it would be good politics to make new friends by taking np a new man Higgins selected Julius Green The part Bauer was to play in the proceedings was to vote for Green The other ten members of the Election Commission were Democrats and the Republican Board of Supervisors had to ratify the nomination Mayor Bartlett kept voting for Fogtrty who was then in the office and Strotber who was Buckleys man refused to go for Fogarty who had bolted Buckley organisation At this Juncture Conroy who was indignant that Higgina would cot direct Bauer to rota for him went over to Buckley and made a contract In that quarter to get 8trothert support but this would have been unavailing If Treasurer Bauer nao votea tiesatty lor Julius Green But Bauer deserted Hlg - rins at this moment and Joined the Conroy force that were then Just getting together Bauer and Strother voted for Conroy and he was confirmed by the Board of Supervi sors andtheofficeot License Collector has been divided since that time between the Conroy force and Buckleys lambs Jn the face of this little history Higgins does not feel friendly toTreasuer Bauer But still in the presence of these tacts Higgins does not work for spite and if he saw that it helped the ticket to put Bauer on It or if there ws a considerable portion of the convention that seemed to demand the nomination of Baser Higgins would not sacrifice anything to prevent it Bat Baner is not pn the slate and will have to make a vigorous independent fight to go into the convention with a strong following Higgins has a candidate but he is not known At present Bauer la th only prominent man in the field CISUC Attn TAX COLLECTOE The office of Coonty Clerk It one of the prises of city politics It is a center of wide political influence Jta deputies and clerks number from 79 to 100 and this is aboaatatprrmarieiorinetuba There Is a young man who is a candidate for this office who la said to be strong among the young men of the city It is not clear what the elements otitis popularity are but he seems to bar many ardent workers His nam is W J JAnddtck In the last municipal convention he ran against Wadham for Tax Collector and came very 1 near breaking the slate It was when ha was defeated that the big bolt In the convention happened The scceeders were afterward brought back to the ranks on the rfroond that their action Jeopardised the Interests of Blaine Buddick It now a candidate for County Clerk and while he has never been a Higgins man it is quite probable that Higgins will support him However there art other candidates Frank Cove and Louis NJsolu are both spoktn well of by their friends and others are mentioned The office ot Tax Collector la also one of the big places of power In the city government Cp to tha present time there are few prominent men who want to contest for tha nomination against tha Incumbent Wadham is a Higgins man and he has not proved himself - a - good officer and after tha election got the big head so bad that be has become Terr unpopular The office is too Important lot the bosses to lose to ft mora popular man will probably get It - - - Astissot cnxatrs -

rate pugilist to assist them in their press - gang duties An Incident that occurred on the previous evening was cited when it is asserted that two of the shipowners runners taking advantagee the temporary absence of the seamans patrol from Sten -
