VOLUME r. WASHINGTON, NORTH CAROLUjjfcjgATURDAY AFTERNOON, OCTOBER 9, 1909. NOW THOUGHT ~W.l HEARST WILL ACCEPT! g on Gaynor He Hoped the Judge Would At tack-Tammany in His Speech. v" The Leaguers Expect Him to ~ Accept. . . ,? New York. Oct. ?. ? William R. Hearst, It la confidently believed by those who aro closely- associated with him In hia political work, will conaent to run for- mayor on an independent ticket. The committee appointed by the meeting In Cooper Union on Wed nesday night to ask Mr. Hearst to be come % candidate for the mayorality, waited on him today and appealed to ? hha to get Into tho fight. Mr. Hearst refused 10 commit him- 1 self until he had time to qQnslder| the mallei fuilhei, aud said he wot reply definitely within 24 houra. It waa explained by some of Mr. Hear8t's friends tha^Jhe was waiting to see what Judge Oaynor said In hla speech of acceptance of the Tammaqy nomination. It waa the understand^ lng of ' these spokesmen for Mr. Hearst that ft Judge Qayno? would announce that he would not be a cat'a paw for Tammany, even though he accepted the nomination of that body. Mr. Hearat would decline to head a ticket, 'and would support the candl daey Of Judge Qaynor. Gaynor Let Tammany Alone. ? Judge Oaynor said- never a word I that would be taken amiss by Tam ~~niany, and in consequence the belief | was that Mr. Hearst will make anoth er fight thla year for the mayorality.' Judge Qaynor' a brief apeech In re ply to tfa notification committee served also as an acceptance of the in dorsements of several Independent and semi-Independent organisations, whoee representatives were present. -There was no denunciation of any: body in Mr. Osynor's speech, eaeept a mild one^o f Mr. Bansrd, the Repub lican candidate for mayor, as a col lector of campaign contributions. MI resign my present office," said Mr. Ohynor, "only to dedicate and de vote the nisxt fobr years cjf my. life to the service of the people of New York. This great city Is made up of people of every race, belief, and way of thinking. Let us live and act to gether without hostility, prejudice, or uncharitableness." Tammany Leaders Absent. -~.l- .^1.., he mentioned were the two who re ceived their notifications at his home with - him ? Robert R. Moore, the nominees for comptroller, and John "F. Gavin, for preaident of the board of aldermen. With two exceptions^ Tammany | Hall waa wet sepresaa^ad. in the ei did* tee fiw. Seemingly, the, strong tip* that Qaynor Intended to 1 TtOT foifflighod over the dignity of Sir. Murphy's organization In his speech of acceptance had acted as a deterrent upon the attendance from ~ the headquarters on Fourteenth street Thomas J. Smith, the secre ? tary of Tammany Hail, was present, as was also E. J. Scully, who ahares . the leadershlp-tn the fourth accembly Ahearn.

"Thla Is entirely unseemly," Jos-I tie* Oaynor broke tin "Tjwre done] Ml T can ror TOU this afternoon/* What the newapaper man did not| have a chance to find out waa wheth er or not the candidate had deter uffiied upon any pledge, that he would not run for gpveroor of the -fitata In case of hls_ election J**** THE PRINTER'S MISTAKE. Typographic orrora are one of the ? chief banes of a newspaper man's ex istence. In the rush of dally news paper maklng ^proofs" are read hur riedly, or sometimes not at all, and occasionally the result in the prlikted Drodnet ls ^ ?For instance, the' story la told, of an " editor who recently wrote a "puff" for the belle of the ball, saying; "Her -dainty feet were Incased in shoes. thaL boots," but the blundering operated n*de It read: "HttJIrty feel ~ were ' ? .fc incased in ?hoes that might hare been taken tdt ferrr-boat* " AN OFFENSE NOW VIOLATED $5.00 Fine for Anyone to Mo ^lest or Interfete With Pas sengers at Depots. Everyone who goes to the Norfolk 1 and Southern depot his to thread their Way through a mtnn of negro men and boys to get to the trains. During bad weatfcer the knot of col ored loafers and hackmen la so thick at the corner^ oi the passenger ahed that one Is obliged to gQ out in the tain fco pass. Ladies going to and from the trains $re buffeted and an noyed by the constant dodging and scuffling going on in this congrega tion of id|ers. , The -Newlb has looked the matter j up, and fl n<yf that this la a punishable ' ofTense, wlBi a fli 11* of five dollars, as will "be seen by reading the follow ing published copy from the -city or dinance. The News suggests a way to mitigate thia lamentable state of affairs: At the cost of lesa than ten dollars the Norfolk and Southern could drive posts about three feet high along the line of the walk run U1BK mm IH6 cornoc or me white waiting room to the telephone pole at the end of same. HeaVy chains to be hung between, leaving the angle of| the walk open for trucks and passen gers to paas and again an opening in front of white waiting room and one half way between angle of walk and pole. All idlers, Packmen, etc;, are to remain on the outside of this fence, and the way would be left open for paaaeng$rs and trucks. It reflacta discredit on a town_of this sise and pretentions to be so lax In enforcing an ordinance after pass ing it. and the Norfolk and Soothcrn owe It to their patron3 to protect them from ah annoyance which has [grown Intolerable to the traveling pttblit. ? Chapter XIV., Section 2. It shall be^ unlawful for any persona to con 8 regale around the depot of the rail road and steamboat lines doing bu^ ness In the town.

Bo.t GOOD FOREST WORK ON ESTATE The Variety Grown on Vander bilt's Place is QtfTile Remarkable. in point of variety and soope^ the forest work done on the Blltpiors es tate, in North Carolina, is remark able. The forests, which cover 130, OOQJicres, are made profitable by the production of various forms of ma terial. j Four million feel of lumber, 5,000 cords of tannlc-acid wood and fuel,! a -thousand cords of tan bark, and| several hundred cords of pulp wood are cut every year. At the same tlm*. the forest through wise management is bettered and is steadily increasing In value. Workmen employed along the boundaries of the forest do duty as fire guards. Thus fire protection is secured at least throughout all the I accessible parts of the tract. In connection .with alt lumbering i operations permanent logging roads are built. These minimize the pres ent cost of transportation, and will greatly reduce the cost of marketing future crona! th?? the roads is steadily adding to the in vestment value of the forest. More over, they~serve also as a network of flro lines. Forest planting is prac ticed where fire will not threaten its success. - A-* ; ? The experimental work' in silvicul ture which is done at Biltmore Is cer tain to makfr Important additions to the science and practice of forestry. Church Directory For Tomorrow.

George Francois Ozmont, who isj here with the Farman biplane which won the endurance prize at Rhelms. attempted three times at dusk to fly. He circled the field several times, but not fast enough to get off the ground. A monoplane bullton the lines of La tham'* machine by U. A. Robinson, of St. Louis, was brought out. but the motor failed to develop sufficient power. Roy Knabenshue, Lincoln Beachley and Thomas Baldwin gave exhibitions In dirigibles. Baldwin made an ex tended flight, Tnrt motor trouble forced him to land In the crowd. The w?cond flight, &Ttei* repairs,' was greeted with great applause.

How healthy it is to move through tho crowd, have yqur mouth filled with confetti, hat dismantled, collar torn asunder, patt of your limbs slcinned? IsiL'i ,it_Jus_t glorious Jo get mixed up in such a throng? One minute one inhales the sweet aroma of heliotrope, the next the fuiftes of Barley-corn poisons the air. Howls, sbrieks, profanity, vul garity, smutty sayings, come and go; and yet the people go Just the same and carry their children. * Yes, the whole town has been this week;- nearly every night the same faces are to~W"~5een=The~rame dor portment exhibited ? the same man ner of familiarity adopted. It has al ways been passing strange how some folk mingle and familiarize with' each other at a public place like a carnival, yet in their parlo/a at home, they are strangers. They laugh together, hr^g, each other, swap jokes, are hale-fel low-well-met- when ? the- "BIB ? Bliow " comes. They think they are not no-j tlced by other folk, but they are. -This state of things Is not confined -to1 Young America, not by a "jugful; the grownups are Just as guilty. "The -behavior and conduct of peo ple attending the carnival this week has been anything else but praise worthy. person attired a little out of the ordinary dared to go through the crowd, for It meant personal flings, unkind remarks, face full of confetti and clothing made the worse for his experience. Now there Is no ; excuse for such deportment, and the Dally, News regrets that ^h^ commu nity 'tn which it. circulates and is try ing to uplift, so far forgets ttself as to lose all self respect when carnivals visit the city. The ladies that visit these places have no conception or idea of the many remarks made about them by the bystanders.

Nu merous '? ?nnftr?tiiinrtQns noured In up on Rear Admiral YVlnfleld Scott Schley today on the occasion of his 70th birthday. Admiral Schley was hnm in. .Rmdai-Jiil/ UH ? In i u on entered the. Naval Academy in 1S56. His careeijjJn the Navy covered a pe riod of 4 5 years, and wa3 one of un usual brilliance. He left the >Cademy i In lima fn psrrlnljinln is mump ?l >k? notible naval engagements of the (civil War. In 1865 he helped to sup | press a revolution In Salvador, and six years later he participated in. the attack, on the 8a lee river fortfr In Ko rea. One of the most brilliant inci dents of his entire career came In 1?84. when "he commanded the Greely relief extradition to the Arctic region, and rescued i?t?\iten ant Greely and the oihkr sjx survivors of h la expedi tion in the froten North. In 1891 he eonyeyed the remains of John Or les son to Sweden, for which he received a gold medal frotaf the king of Swe den. (iis later career, Including his victory in the naval battle -of Santi ago, is familiar to all American news paper readers. Sinqe his retirement from active service In 1901 Admiral Schley has divided hia time, between, this city and his pld home in Mary land. 1 A fOPl^I.AR TF.ACRF.W.

There seems, lop, to. bo a certain class that, follow carplVals who take particular notice the ways of the ladies; then, -when other towns am ? reached? they proceed to advertise them and are not careful in their crit icism. Washington had a sample of a map of thl? Ilk this ?<? 1 to be an adjunct to the show, and the way he passes criticism on the women I of other towns where the carnival had been, would make them blush. If he advertised other towns thin way he would probably repeat the Blander Otis about Washington wo men when he departs for another field in which to fling his insulting slurs. Night before last he attempted familiarity with the wrong lady. The one he accosted told him in plain English that If he were not careful she would forget that ?he was a lady and spit in his face. He hung his "tread like a whipped cur and made good his distance. Yet knowing all these demoralizing Influences that are ? ? seen on'all sides, the people go just the same, and some try to see how far they can go. Shame on them. .A person of refinement, of culture, of , intelligence from afar, visiting Wash ington and seeing such mannerism, what do you suppose would be his comment? Certainly It could not" be one of commendation. . Why can't people go to public places and deport themBelveB in a manner not to be crit icised? What a stain upon this city when its people are guilty of such de meanor. All qlaBses of people, high and low, 'rich dnd poor, white and black, are all placed on a common level. John and Jim.
