Not illustrated. 1911 edition. Excerpt: ...been willing to accept him. They have, however, nominated John J. Delany, formerly Corporation Counsel of New York City. The Republicans, on the other hand, have nominated Justice Whitney, who is also supported by the Independence League. Both of these gentlemen are well known and highly respected, but it is to be regretted that an agreement could not have been reached and thus a political contest over this ofiice avoided. In the Second District, there are three Justices of the Supreme Court to be elected, to succeed Justices Maddox and Garretson, Republicans, and Justice Putnam, a Democrat. Both parties have nominated Justices Maddox and Putnam to succeed themselves, and the Republicans have nominated Justice Garretson. The Democrats, however, have declined to endorse Justice Garretson, and have nominated instead Patrick E. Callahan, of Kings County, at present an Assistant Corporation Counsel of New York City, at tached to the Brooklyn ofi-Ice. The action of the Democrats in endorsing Justice Maddox shows some progress toward the non-partisanship ideal, for they have been unwilling for several years to endorse any Republican for a judicial nomination in the Second District. The Republicans in nominating Justice Putnam continue the line of policy which they have pursued in general for some time past. We believe that the Democrats would have done better to have adopted the non-partisanship idea in whole rather than in part. It is true that a majority of the Supreme Court Justices in the Second District are Republicans, and this, of course, afiords ground for the argument that the election of two Democrats and only one Republican would tend to restore the balance between the parties. While the end sought is not bi-partisanship more
