BVENtNG- jjEDGEIl-PBilADELPHIA,. WEPffESDAY, SEPTEMBER 33, iOl
AGAINST SMITH AN
Washington Partymen and
Members of Republi
Would End Former Post
An organized revolt asalnat tho loader
lhlp of former Postmaster Thomas H.
Bmlth, with a closely allied anll-Penroso
movement, ha3 begun In the SSth Ward.
This was admitted today by members
of the Republican Ward Committee. The
first steps In the movo to oust Smith
have been taken by Washington party
Bmlth Is a resident of Olenslde and, ac
cording to those leading tho revolt, for
number of years has not had tho right
to vote In the 3Sth Ward or to maintain
his leadership there. Despite his aien
ilde residence, Washington party men as
trt h has continued to vote In tho
jsih Ward and has been tho actual He
publican leader. Republican committee
men declare they do not object to his
voting there, but oppose strenuously his
thnds In enforcing his leadership. As
a concrete Illustration of his autocratic
control, one member of the Ward Com
mittee today pointed to the election of
Joseph Smith, Thomas B. Smith's brother,
s chairman of the Ward Committee.
"Thomas B. Smith never had been a
member of the Ward Committee until ho
was chosen chairman," tho protesting com
mitteeman declared. "Wo yere not asked
whether wo would accept him, but tho
word was passed out that ho was to bo
placed there and wo had no choice but
fo elect hlin. Please dow't give my name,
Jbr If they knew I was fomenting a re
f olt I would be ousted before many days."
A meeting of the Wnrd Commlttoe has
been called for tomorrow night when tho
entire question probably will bo threshed
ut. Tho prime movers In the revolt
admit that as yet they are a minority In
the Ward Committee and declaro that
tinless they can win others to their way
of thinking, the protest will be futile. At
present there are 72 members of the Re.
publican Ward Committee. More than 20,
It Is claimed, are in sympathy with tho
While there have heen no open ne
gotiations, co-operation between Wash
ington Party men and the revolting
Republicans In the ward is admitted.
On the second registration day, Sep
tember 15, William F. Klefer, a Jeweler,
a Washington Party registrar and com
mitteeman, challenged Smith on his at
tempt to register from the ICth division
of the 28th Wnrd. Tho challenge wns
timed on Smith's Glensldo residence.
Smith Immediately made affidavit that
he was a properly qualified resident of
the 16th division. Ho was then allowed
to register. Tho matter was brought
before the Committee of Sev.enty and
they Intend to make a thorough Inves
tigation. If the facts warrant they will
take the case to the courts.
One point In common between the
Washington Party followers and the
Republicans In revolt Is a strong nntl
Penrose sentiment. This is ndmlttej by
toth sides. "The leadership of Mr.
Smith In our wnrd," one of the Repub
lican committeemen stated today, "is
for nothing else than to create a Pen
rose condition, and the feeling of the
majority of the Republicans here Is not
too warm for Mr. Penrose."
If tho revolt gains sufficient strength
to act against Smith, It Is believed one
of the first steps will be to oust Milton
K. Reedmoyer, the Republican City
Committeeman from the 2Sth Ward. To
do this would require a two-thirds voto
of the ward committee.
