SMITH WILL NOT RUN
Service Commissioner, Sought

Say Yes or No
REFERS TO AGREEMENT
Tho clement of uncertainty In the po
litical situation was Increased this aftcr
non when Tubllo Service Commissioner
Thomas B. 8mlth announced ho was un
decided whether he would file nomination
petitions for the Mayoralty or not.
Ho referred to the correspondence be
twecn Governor Brumbaugh and himself
at tho time he was appointed to hi pres
ent position, In which nn agreement wa
made that the new commlloncr would
not run for ahy high office without the
Governor' "full approval." Mr. Smith
snld that he had been asked to sign his
nomination papers, but refused, because
ho wns not In touch with tho Governor.
By wny of comment ho snld:
"I cannot say whether or not I will
sign the nomination papers. You will re
member that I put something In my let
ter to tho Governor and I certainly will
not go Into tho Mayoralty contest with
out his npproval. I hnvo not been In
touch with frie Governor and have no
reason to believe that I will hear from
him. I was approached and asked to
sign the nomination papers, but refused."
with nil nrenarntlons made for another
bitter factlonnl fight similar to that of
four years ngo, tho Republican Organiza
tion, from the leaders down to tho division
workers, Is In n state of unprecedented
excitement today, ns a final rush Is being
made to illo nomination papers before tho

suddenly discovered yesterday that they
are facing a fight that may surpass that

Tho stock of District Attornoy Rotan
rose several points over night, but per

While every arrangement Is being made
for a fight.' the Ponrose-McNIchoI leaders
