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

nominees for comptroller, and John
"F. Gavin, for preaident of the board
With two exceptions^ Tammany |
Hall waa wet sepresaa^ad. in the ei

strong tip* that Qaynor Intended to

Sir. Murphy's organization In his
speech of acceptance had acted as a
deterrent upon the attendance from

What the newapaper man did not|

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* "
$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

WORK ON ESTATE
The Variety Grown on Vander
bilt's Place is QtfTile
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
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.

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

a map of thl? Ilk this ?<?

way he passes criticism on the women

had been, would make them blush.
If he advertised other towns thin way
he would probably repeat the Blander

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

she would forget that ?he was a lady
