12 THE BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE. NEW YORK. SATURDAY. OCTOBER 28, 1905. NOW WHITES JEROME Brought Together Again for Twenty Minutes Session; No Fight Developed. COURTS MAY FIX EAGLE TICKET. Tammany Will Try to Prevent Substitution of Names Lawyers Say It Can Be Done. William Travers Jerome was made the Republican candidate for District Attorney of New York County last night by the unanimous vote of the reconvened convention. His name is to be substituted on the ballot, unless the procedure is blocked by the Board of Elections or the courts, for that of Charles A. Flanimer. Abe Gruber and the other enemies of Jerome staid away. William Halpin moved that the vote by which Judge Flammer was nominated, be reconsidered and that Jerome be substituted in his place. Halpin has been a Jerome man from the start. His friends said it took some courage In him to stand up for Jerome in the caucus of district leaders preceding the original convention, and to vote for the nomination of the District Attorney in the convention as one of a small minority. Odell, too, many say, has been misjudged in. this matter. It has become pretty clear that the first convention got away from them. Several legal opinions have been obtained from lawyers of the highest standing that Jerome can be placed on the ticket. If the Democratic election commissioners refuse to certify the name an appeal will be made to the courts for relief and a mandamus. The mention of Jerome's name in the convention last nigh; aroused the greatest enthusiasm. Mr. Halpin did most of the talking and the business' was finished in twenty minutes. Senator N. A. Elsberg, now Mr. Ivins' campaign manager, presided. William C. Wilson, of the Twenty-fifth District, moved thajtthe vote taken by. the convention in nominating Charles A. Fiam-mer for District Attorney be reconsidered.' When this motion had been carried William Halpin said: "Mr. Flammer took the action because he believed he was not acting in accordance with the traditions of the party by putting himself against the candidacy of Mr. Jerome. I have been requested by the County Executive Committee, moved by the same spirit of unselfishness that dominated Mr. Flammer, to place before this convention the name of William Travers Jerome as the candidate of the Republican party for District Attorney of the county of New York." The name was received with, cheering. Samuel S. Koenlg. of the Sixteenth Assembly District, seconded the nomination. He said: "The action of Mr. Halpin in nominating Mr. Jerome has already been approved by the people of New York, and Mr. Jerome will be the next District Attorney. The Republican party always has listened to the voice of the people, and is willing at all times to make any sacrifice in their cause. The East Side, a part of which I represent,, especially applauds this action. It loves Mr. Jerome, not merely as a politician, but a loyal, true hearted man and its friend." Representative Herbert Parsons, of the Twenty-fifth District, said the nomination was not only unusual but courageous. "It i the one thing," he said, "that marks the difference between the Republican party, which stands for honesty, and Tammany Hall, which stands for graft." Ernest Hall, of the Thirty-fifth District, said the Republican party always was ready to correct mistakes. ''Our action to-night seals the election of Ivlns," said he. One ballot was cast by the secretary for Mr. Jerome on motion of Judge Otto A. Rosulsky.

Albert T. Huntington, president of the club, presided. J. C. Dana, librarian of the Newark Free Public Library, spoke on the subject "Making a Library Known," and Miss Helen E. Haines, managing editor of , the Library Journal, on "Notes on Recent Books." Both addresses were followed by an open discussion, after which light refreshments were served. Miss Haines spoke of the novels of the present year, which seemed in a degree typical of the tastes and tendencies of the times. Fashions in fiction, she said, run the gamut of variation, reaction and modifl- , cation, just s much as fashions in clothes; and though there are always some that stand . apart and may pass unscathed through the years, the majority are soon unregarded and forgotten. Nevertheless, the present-day novels show good workmanship, bettor writing, more discriminating analysis of character, a keener appreciation of the picturesque and greater facility of expression. The novels of the year, in Miss Haines' opinion, which should take the hiehest rank are Mrs. Wharton's "House of Mirth," Dr. Weir Mitchell's "Constance Trescott," Eden Philpott's "The Secret Woman," Maurice Hewlett's "The Fool's Errant," despite its morbid strain:- Robert Hicben's "The Garden of Allah," and "The Moral of Marcus Ordeyne," by W. J. Locke. : Mr. Dana's paper on the general topic of library advertising proved interesting and instructive. The, first and best of all agencies, said Mr. Dana is the delivery desk where more people learn what the library is, how it conducts itself, what it wishes to do, and what it is doing in the community, than anywhere else. Of all outside agencies, however, the newspaper is the chief help in making a library known. Modern newspapers are almost invariably willine to Insert brief notices concerning tfce library's plans and ambitions, changes and modifications of system, methods, receipts and expenditures. The catalogue or printed book lists and bulletins are the next chief agency for. advertising a library. These lists, if brief and devoted to a-me one particular topic, will be of great advantage to tho reading public. The schools come next in importance. Every teacher can and should win for the library each year forty or fifty friends in her pupils and. through them, to !ts advocacy and in a measure to its use alomn as many families. Every library should have a special room in which meetings, educational, charitable and civic, could be held. Such meetings could do much toward making a library known. Study clubs an dvolunteer organizations of all kinds, circular and personal notes, posters and bulletins, all do their share toward calling attention to the library. Another valuable means of drawing people to the institution is by library exhibitions, either of material belonging to the Ibrary itself, or of paintings or otber things lent for the purpose. In a city such as Brooklyn, delivery and deposit stations bring a library to the very doors of many people who never can visit the main building itself. In con cluding, Mr. Dana spoke of the work of the Newark Public Library and made the statement that in the lafit thirty days the press of that city had printed thirty-one notices of the library. T km HE past week In the Brooklyn realty market has been one of exceptional activity, contrasted with the three or lour weeks Just pre ceding- Good values have prevailed with an 'excellent demand, all going to make up a generally healthy tone. The political situation has exerted no appreciable influence on the market, according to tho brokers, who unite in denying its Influence either for good or bad. This is contrary to experience shown In previous years but many reasons ar given for the condition. The first is that all three of the candidates for the Mayoralty are agreed on the question bt municipal ownership, at least upon the fact that it is desirable and should be effected if possible and as soon as possible. All three claim to have originated the Idea and apparently none would. i- . .h.,. nam ruruu luui.. ue iruiu F- Crete reasons thnt bodies give for the opposition to this measure, which If divined iniquitous and partial, are threefold. The first is that it alms at the Impoverishment of the people who are least able to bear It and that despite all legislation the tenant has finally to pay for it. The second reason appeals to all classes, because the tax makes New York City pay half of the entire amount that Is collected throughout the state under the law. The third and lesser reason is that it has failed In every respect to meet the expectations of Its promulgators and has turned out a fizzle. Representatives of the association are impressing these reasons upon property holders not only in Brooklyn and Manhattan, but throughout Long Island and In the principal cities of the state, and indications are strongly pointing to a vigorous and harsh opposition to the continuance of the tax. The Brooklyn Board of Real Estate Brokers has at last signed incorporation papers and elected a directorate. Most of the big brokers iu Brooklyn, It is claimed, either have been or will be allied with this effort to legitimize the brokerage business of the borough. Its formulators predict success for It in the near future. This organization also opposes the mortgage tax. The latest move of the Allied Real Estate Interests has been to send out Inquiries to each of the several candidates for Assembly with a view to learning their attitude In the event of their election, toward the mortgage tax. Several replies already received by the secretary distinctly favor the repeal of the measure, and, in consideration of the present campaign struggle, It Is expected that every candidate will come out in favor of repealing the law. Speeches nave been made in opposition to the tax throughout the upper part of the state during the week, with the result that the membership has been materially Increased. Thp Brooklyn office of the association will be opened on Montague street early next week, where all lnlormation can De obtained. three candidates promise to look after the j The Builders Mutual Protective Associa-roiq of the people and that Includes tion of New York, met recently and adopted realty interests. As one prominent man stated yesterday, this campaign is very different from a national contest where the issues involve the currency, tariff, reciprocal relations, militarism and other varied points of divergence that make the years of the presidential eiec severe resolution condemning the mort gage tax as Injurious to their business, as well as to the interests of their clients. They promised their united support for the Allied Interests in a vigorous campaign. Activity in Buildings.

Blocks of property are constantly changing hands in the suburban ward3, especially in the former town of Flatlands, wherethe new owners contemplate improving the farm lands and establishing residential sections. Property in Homecrest and that part of the Thirty-first Ward extending as far as the Flat, lands line has been eagerly sought after, and it has been predicted that within the next twelve months one of the finest residential I parts of Brooklyn will have been established along the shores of the bay. There is a large stretch of unimproved property on the east side of Ocean avenue, extending from the Manhattan railroad crossing to Avenue U, and it is just there that much activity in real estate Is looked for. In the meantime agents are doing very Well with property in other parts of the ward. Lots on East Seventeenth street and on Homecrest avenue changed hands during the week and a big pfot at -East Twenty-second street, arid Jerome avenue was sold by tho Alanson- Treadwcll estate..- Several lots on Coney Island avenue; In Homecrest; were also sold.

The most notable sale that took place during- the week and also one of the biggest auction sales ever held in the city, went under the hammer in the Manhattan exchange salesroom at 14 Vescy street. Bryan L. Kcnnelly was the auctioneer, and in a single day disposed of nearly $fi,000,OUO worth of the holdings of the late Mrs. Elizabeth W. Aldrich, a weli known New York woman. The crowd was enormous and competition was lively. A-few of the parcels got away, despite hard work by the auctioneer, at low figures that made the crowd gasp when It was too late. The most valuable property was the Aldrich Court building at 45 Broadway, down In the heart of the financial district of Manhattan, which sold for $1,200.-000. The Columbia building, at the corner or Morris street and Broadway, went for $1,050,000.

Mr. Oner's wife, who died three years ago, was Miss Ellin Travers, daughter of William R. Travers, the famous banker and wit. Mrs. Mackay was their only child. The deceased Is survived by two brothers. Edward A. and James Gore Duer. The former married Miss Van Buren. a granddaughter of President Martin Van Bureu. Two of his nieces, the daughters of James Gore King Duer, Mrs. Alice Miller and Miss Caroline Duer, are well known as writers of fiction and verse. Among the family connections are the Grades, the Kings, Mrs. Wad- dlngton. Mrs. John King Van Rensselaer, Mrs. Frederick Bronson, Archibald Grade, and many other well known New York families. The old Duer country estate adjoins the Stevens home, on Hotioken Heights. Mr. Duer was a member of the Union, Knickerbocker, Brook, Weda. and Lawyers clubs, and of the South Side .Sportsmen's Club of Long Island. He was s trustee ot the Union Trust Company, of which hit uncle, Edward King, is president.

Is the scarcity of property. If the present rate of nuii'jmg Keeps up. some believe that conditions will be reversed and the supply will exceed the demand. This Is seriously doubted by most brokers, who assert that tho growing population will more than take care of all the houses that will be erected. Rental values have held their own verv steadily since the season opened. Renting Is not so active as It was three weeks ago, but there Is no complaint except from the tenants who are kicking about high rents. Owners are supported by brokers and deal ers generally in raising rent, on htgji class property and the declaration Is made that the limit has not been reached. Values charged for high class property are said to he In fair proportion to land values and general market conditions. Prices charged by owners of second class houses and tenements have created some dlBnatisfactton among brokers as well as tenants. This Is apparent only in the poorer sections of tho borough as a canvass has shown. None of the brokerB In the better sections will admit that prices are too hli;h. but a few. and only a few, of those In the oldc r localities, built up for years by old frame houses, candidly state that owner are getting selfish and seek to wring the purses of their tenants to the limit. The broker who made the greatest objection lo '' was forced to admit that It !a only a mall ier; n'age of 'en ment owners who aio thus exacting. And ho added that If the extortion was maintained damage would be done not only to their own Interestg but to the city. The Bales market In town has been somewhat better than the week preceding, lively trading being reported from tarlous sections of the borough. This condition Is expected to last all during the cold weather with only such Interruptions as nre caused by extreme, of temperature that hinder transit and k"cp all classes of persons Indoors. Values have remained stationary during the week, with hut sllnht variations. No reports have been received of falling prlre nnd brokers sssert thnt none are looked for.

"Are we to get the Fourth avenue tunnel?" 1b the question now being asked by every resident in Bay Ridge and Fort Hamilton, and the boom that struck those places Immediately following the announcement a year ago that that a tunnel would be built under the avenue. Is now somewhat weaker. Although the commission persists In claiming that thi subway will surely be built, there are some real estate men In Bay Ridge who pessimistically declare they nover expect to live to see it. , Business within the past week has been fair. Some realty men said they expected a big boom this fall and are somewhat disappointed. Agents report the snle of a number of houses and lots and the application for more two-family houses than can be built. Borough Park property continues lo be much sought after and the same may bo said of Bensonhurst. Thero have been no big snles reported, but there Is a steady demand for Dmnll plots.

Wood, Harmon & Co. are putting up nine brick aparlment bouses and business buildings for permanent investment. The lurgest of these are the two .four-story doublo brick buildings on the corner of Beverley road and East Twenty-first Btrcet.

AS TO INFANT MORTALITY. Interesting Determination on the Subject by State Charities Board Committee. (Special to the Eagle.) Albany, October 28 The special committee of the '' board of charities, of which William Rhlnelander Stewart was chairman, which investigated the subject of infant mortality at Randall's Island and institutions for private management for the care of infants In New York City, upholds Charities Commissioner Tully In deciding to commit to private institutions infants of the general class formerly sent to the Infants hospital on Randall's Island, and says he acted with reasonable discretion and In accordance with law and the general custom throughout the state. The report says: "With reforence to the per capita cost of maintaining the Infants at the hospital on Randall's Island, sx-Commlnsloner of Public Charities Homer Folks states that, as nearly as he could estimate It, this amounted to about 95 vents a day. The committee Is satisfied that It was approximately ibreo times as great as the per capita amount paid by the city to the private Institutions." The committee Is of the opinion that the New York Infant Asylum and the nursery and the child's hospital can be better fitted to render public service by their consolidation, if such consolidation Is not effected It will be desirable for the nursery and child's hospital to follow the example of Ihe foundling hospital and the Infant asylum by boarding out as mnny of Its charges as practicable. The course should be followed by all of the Institutions. REPUBLICANS RATIFY. William P.
