w York's P.R.
By A Politiea
(Cont nued from Page 4)

t

last day of November-just four weeks
after the ballots had been cast. In a
council of 26-comprising 25 men and
one woman--the Democrats com-
manded 14 votes, the American La-
bor party five, the Fusion group three,
and the Republicans three. One In-
dependent was elected from Queens, a
former Democratic alderman who
was denied the endorsement of the
Sheridan Democratic organization in
Queens borough but ran successfully
as an Independent, a good example of
the way in which a popular man may
be elected despite the opposition of
the machine in his own district. Of
the three Fusion members, Charles
Belous associated himself with the
American Labor party a few days af-
ter the election, raising the Coun-
cil representation of that group to six
and assuring its leader, B Charney
Vladeck, of the leadership of the anti-
Tammany, pro-LaGuardia bloc on the
City Council. .
The results of the first New York
attempt a~t P.R. exceeded, of, course,
even the wildest dreams of the anti-
Tammany forces under the old single-
member district Board of Aldermen,
but there was a slight over-represen-
tttiozi of the Tammany vote. Thus,
though Jeremiah Mahoney, the Tam-
many candidate for Mayor, was beat-
en by a substantial majority by La-
Guardia's bid for re-election, the or-
ganization Democrats will be able to
organize the City Council at its first
meeting in January of next year.
Among the LaGuardia forces them-
selves there was some disparity of
representation, for the Republicans,
who contributed half of the votes for
LaGuardia's re-election, got only
three Council members, the other 11
anti-Tammany councilmen being of
the Fusion. and American Labor par-
ties. In the workings of P.R., the
reformers suffered, for they put up
a host of candidates and these, com-
bined with the Tammany Democrats,
independents, Socialists, Communists,
American Laborites, and other mis-
cellaneous brands tended to confuse
the voters, save the organization co-
horts, and there was considerable
cross voting, as an examination of the
transfer of the votes of defeated can-
didates shows. The Democratic voters
were trained to concentrate on a few
endorsees, without having to wade
through the mass of names with
which Tammanyites were forced to
cope. The superfluity of candidates
will undoubtedly take care of itself
for the 1939 election, for many per-
sons merely ran in the false hope of
finding a way to "beat" P.R. These
will drop out, and the reform forces
will undoubtedly concentrate their
voters behind a few men instead of
a long list of names, so that the total
of 230 will dwindle down to a consid-
erably smaller figure two years hence.
In Toledo, over 50 candidates sought
election in the first P.R. election (that
of 1935), a total which was reduced
to 19 in 1937.

tion, that of small groups who have
