THE CHICAGO TRIBTOOJ : TTJESDAX, DECEMBER 6, 1898. GAHAN IS STILL CHIEF OF PARTI Ee-elected as Chairman by Cook County's New Democratic Committee. Schlesinger & Mayer announce a unique and important disptay and sate of distinguished Thespian dolls BURKE IS THE SECRETARY Secret Meeting Held in Expectation of Fight on the Harrison Men. RYAN'S FRIENDS STAY AWAY. Thomaa Gahan and Robert E. Burke were r3!.wted ns chairman and secretary re- sictlvelv bv the new Democratic County committee yesterday. Their chief assistants will be Alexander J. Jones, Frank X. Bran- dtcktr. and Thomas Cusack. as Vice Presi dents: Fred E. Eldred as Treasurer; and Joseph Strauss Sergeant-at-Arms. It is un-. dtrstood the machine will operate hereafter Jn secret as much as possible. Some of the lxtsses are complaining that the failures Jn past campaigns were largely due to the lact that everybody Knew just wnat it was doing, and thus kept the enemy so well post ed It could easily take advantage of every move made. For the first time reporters and spectators were barred out of the annual meeting of the committee. It was learned subsequently that the Harrison leaders expected some of the committeemen who are not supporting the Mayor would say things they wished to keep from the public. But the anti-Harrison lighters did not put to an appearance. The 60-called Ryan members of the organization, it seems, had a prearranged agreement to etay away. At least that was what several of the Harrisonites said. They freely quoted Alderman John Powers as making the state ment he would not go near the meeting. He was not there, and neither were William J. O'Brien. Roger C. Sullivan, John McGillan, and Dr. George Leininger. The absence of these men gave rise to stories that they would continue to absent themselves until after the Mayoralty fight is settled. These nine cdl dates for the office of Elec tion Commissioner to succeed P. H. Keenan. whose term has expired, were nominated and recommended to Judge Carter, who, it is ex pected, will soon make the nomination: V. H. Keenan, John J. Sloan, 3). i Consuiine. George English, Thomas Judge, S. I. Grittii J. B. Lynch. II. 11. KereelT-P. J. O'K-eefTe, A number of contests were referred to the Executive committee. J. P. Gibbons is after tha Second Ward seat, held by John Fitz gerald. In the event Mayor Harrison stands by Controller Waller and turns- down John McCarthy's street repairing bills he may get it. . A. Munzer, J. J. Klein, and Edward E. Walsh are fighting over the Fifth Ward leadership. As " Chick ' Curran has been repudiated in the Tenth John Sloan and J. J. Halpm both want the boss' job there. Oeorge McConnell and J. N. Twohig are malting trouble over the Eleventh Ward committeeship, and John Grein, a City Hall employee, has been put forward to knock out Dr. George Leininger In the Fourteenth Ward. Leininger is one of Timohy Ryan's Iirst lieutenants and probably will be ousted. DEMANDS BY PARTY WORKERS. New Arrangement for Distributing Cor.aty Patronage Is Urged by the v Xxiends of Republican Hustlers. The organization managers and committee n distribution of Republican patronage met egaln last night and endeavored to make a more satisfactory apportionment of the Jobs by ward and towns. The work was laid out last week on a basis of the number of delegates In the county convention, but that did not please wards where hard work had to be done and where a better showing for the party was made than in the big Repub lican wards. They want more of the pat ronage with which to award their workers. POLITICIANS AID M'CARTHY. Afraid the Mayor Will Offend Second Ward Democrats if He Stands by Controller Waller. : Some of the Democratic machine bosses tro mixing In the controversy between City Controller Waller and John J. McCarthy. Robert E.Burke had an audience with Mayor Harrison yesterday and it is said he made a jlea for McCarthy. The leaders fear if the Mayor should sustain Mr. Waller end turn McCarthy down, the Second Ward will go against him in the Mayoralty convention.
