Hoot, lie Says, Does Not Wish To
Be Named for Governor.
The delegates to the Republican National Con
vention have returned, and the lines are now
being drawn for the campaign. Senator Platt
and Senator D«pew both were here yesterday.
Governor Odell did not come back, as he went
to St. Liouls to take part in the dedication of
the New-York Building at the Louisiana Pur
chase Exposition. Senator Platt wa» at the
Oriental Hotel, at Manhattan Beach, last night.
"I have Jurt returned, and hare hardly had
time to wash up yet. AH I can say Is It was a
great convention. Amid tumultuous enthusiasm
Roosevelt was nominated, and he will be elected.
There wu the most remarkable unanimity of
opinion. I can safely say that the talk about
coldness In the convention Is all a fake. It was
wildly enthusiastic, and Republicans from all
ever the country gave me the most encouraging
reports. I am certain that the campaign will
be a strenuous one. and Roosevelt will be elected
by a handsome majority."
"How about the State ticket?"
"I have been." said the Senator. "in favor of
nominating El'.hu Root, but I am advised that
he will not take it. Mr. Root was a ereat War
Secretary. Nothing he could do as Governor
would add to the lustre he gained in that office;
but it would be a great thing for the Republi
cans of this State should he decide to run for
Governor. I have hoped that he would do so,
but he. I understand, says he will not."
"If not Root, who will be named 7" he was
"That Is something I ciiinot cay. Matters
must develop. It Is too early to talk now."
It may be stated that ex-Lieutenant Governor
Woodruff, of Brooklyn, la a candidate for the
nomination, and •while Senator Platt Is non
cosninlttal on Mr. Woodruffs candidacy, It is
understood that he does not regard it with dis
favor. In fact, It i» said he feels kindly dis
posed toward Mr. Woodruff, and If Elihu Root
Is not to be retarded as a candidate, would not
oppose Mr. Woodruffs amMtlon in that direc
tion. The unknown quantity In that situation
it Governor Odell. and he Is silent on the sub
ject. When asked it Chicago about the Gov
ernorship, he Bald:
"That is something that most develop later.
At least six weeks ill elapse before we come to
the problem of nominating: a man for Governor,
and there is no use talking now."
There has been talk that Frank F. Black, who
Is considered a candidate to succeed ("hauncey
M. Depew as United States Senator, would be
named for Governor. Mr. Black's friends say
that he will not take it under any circumstances.
It is believed, however, that Governor Odell may
draft him for the nomination. The Governor
and Mr. Black are on the most intimate per
sonal terms, and It is understood that in the
end he will seek to persuade Mr. Black to ac
cept, and bring: about his nomination.
Senator Depew, who was in the city yesterday,
said: "The Chicago convention was not one of
riotous enthusiasm. It is hard to stir up enthu
siasm for something: that is a foregone conclu
sion. Despite this, the personal love and ldyalty
for Roosevelt, even though his nomination was
a certainty, caused a tremendous outburst of en
thusiasm when It was made."
Edward I^auterbach. ex-Judgo W. M. K. Ol
cott. Charles B. Boyd. State Superintendent of
Public Works; Francis Hendricks, State Super
intendent of Insurance; William L. Ward, mem
ber of the* National Committee; Congressman
Sherman and Congressman Ltttauer, were all
here yesterday, and malted in saying that Roose
velt had received a tremendous send off at Chi
cago. They declared that Roosevelt's election
was a certainty.
Mr. L#auterbach. who represented New-York
on the Committee on Resolution?, was asked
about th« plank restricting Southern .•'presenta
tion in the convention. He said:
"I am glad we did something In that line. I
have felt that It was needed for a long time.
The eolid South is against us always, anyhow,
and there is no need of giving it larg* repre
sentation. I believe that the action of the com
mittee will be universally sustained."
The main discussion now is in regard to the
Governorship situation as outlined. Senator
Platt desires Ellhu Root or Timothy It. Wood
ruff. It Rtems now that there may he a con
test In the convention.

Hartford, Conn.. June Major William n.
Dwlght, of this city, for several years a member
of the Republican State Committee, says that
there in no possible doubt of th« Republican
ticket beingr carried In Connecticut by a safe
plurality. There Is no disaffection In the Re
publican ranks, and many Democrats who voted
for McKinley four years ago say that it is easier
for them to vote for Roosevelt than it was to
vote for McKinley. Roosevelt la the most popu
lar President among the young men of the State
that ever sat In the Fxecutive chair. A well
known Democrat said yesterday that he be
lieved Roosevelt was the greatest President

President; every one knows I consider Senator
Fairbanks the best man who could bo selected to

WILL CARRY THIS STATE.
Louis Stern Enthusiastic Over the
Louis Stern, a member of the New-York dele
gation to the Republican National Convention,
as well as president of the Republican Club,
baa returned from Chicago, delighted with the
outcome of the convention and with boundless
confidence that the Republican nominee* for
President and Vice-President will defeat the
strongest ticket that the Democratic party can
put up. in a talk with a Tribune reporter last
night Mr. Stern expressed the conviction that
President Roosevelt and Senator Fairbanks will
carry New-York State.
"I was delighted with the entire proceedings,"
said Mr. Stern. "For the 11 rut two days there
may Tint have been that wild enthusiasm which
some affect to believe should have obtained.
Had there been any opposition, any number of
balloting, several opposing candidates or any
wholly unknown factors, this contention might
be well founded. Everything had been so well
arranged, however, and there was bo little fric
tion that there was really no time for enthu
siasm. None the leas, on the third day the en
thusiasm was phenomenal.
The excellence of the nominating speeches and
the huh level of Intelligence represented were
truly remarkable. It seemed that all that was
most Intelligent In American life was r<»pr«
eented. The nominating speeches of ex-Gov
ernor Frank S. Black for the President, of Sen
ator DoUiver for the Vice-President, of Chair
man Cannon, of Senator Beveridxe, of George
A. Knight, of California, were splendid.
"What is the general impression of the
ticket? It Is one of congratulations on every
Bide. Of course. President Roosevelt's nomina
tion was an assured thing, and us for Senator
Fairbanks he Is able, conservative, popular In
the West and In his own State, which is a good
criterion of a man's value, and I believe no
stronger man, all things considered, could have
been put up for Vice-President. Then? is no
question as to the success of the ticket— not
the slightest doubt. I sincerely believe that the
Roosevelt-Fairbanks ticket can beat anything
that the Democrats can put up, both In the total
suffrages and the suffrages of the people of
New-York State. As for enthusiasm, there will
be plenty of time to 'whoop her up/ beginning
with the middle of September. There Is not th«
slightest doubt that the ticket spells succeHs."

two months' trip to Europe.

Remarkable Absence of Accidents at

District Elevated and trolley lines pass the corner
in both Myrtle-avo. and Broadway. It Is particu
larly busy on Saturday night, when the store* are
open. Hut. as luck would have It, not a car or a
train was near, and no pedestrians were so near
but that they weru able to get away when they
heard the rumbling sounds that preceded the crash.
The building. , which occupies the southeast!
corner of th« street, was In the form of a trun
cated triangle. The entrance was on the point
that was cut off. and above It was an arch extend
ing from the second i > the fourth floor. It was
this masonry that crumbled for some unknown
reason. Iha ground Ik.or was occupied by a branch
or the IVlUianisburi Trust Company, and the other
floors by otnoes. Borne years ago when a drygoou*

BRICKLAYERS WISH TO AVOID A STRIKE.
The bricklayers' unions which were trying to
bring about a general strike throughout Manhat

are now equally anxious to avert a strike. When
reports came In from the unions of a meeting of
their greater New-York executive board. lasting
from Friday evening until yesterday morning. It
was found that unions which had declared for a
strike had changed, and wanted to avoid a strike
If possible. Local Union No. 7. which was nearly
stampeded at Its last meeting for a strike without
waiting for the other unions, had also changed
It was found that come of the bricklayers who
were ordered to Btrike against Individual con
tractors for 70 cents an hour, had refused to quit
work. The principal cause of the change of senti

Mason Iluilders* Association and tho bricklayers'
unions having been broken off, there wan nothing
to prevent tho National Klreprooflng Company from
taking contracts for the Installation of the fire
proofing material, which Is now 65 per cent of the
work of the bricklayers. The company has con
tracts for Installing the flreprootlng on > two build

THE PIANO is undoubtedly the most popular
musical instrument of to-day. This despite
the fact that owing to the immense diffi
culty of acquiring piano "tech

are bought are ever more than
In the Pianola Piano this dif
ficulty is completely overcome.
The Pianola inside its case fur
nishes a more perfect technique
than that possessed by any but
the greatest pianists.
As in the regular Pianola,
this teclinique is completely
under the player's artistic con
trol. That is, while he does
not strike the notes, it depends
entirely on him how they shall
be struck or with what expres
sion the piece shall be played.
The further fact that the Pianola is 01 in* new y^
known as the Metrostylc, insures the player using the
right expression, even though he may know absolutely nothing
of music. , . , ,
The Pianola Piano therefore possesses this advantage over

For the first time since the 81ocum disaster
the boat* running to the beaches were crowded
yesterday. Men and women thought first of the
dangers to which they might be exposed on the
boats and then tooß another look at the ther
mometer, and. wiping the perspiration from
their faces, went aboard the boats without fur
ther thought of anything but their discomfort.
After 12 o'clock the crowds began to pour down
to the Battery landing and fight their way to
the boats, leaving a deep trail of perspiration
in their wake.
Ooata ami collars were abandoned, and long

forests had been greatly overrated by the Dominion

made an extended tour of Investigation through the
Canadian forests, and says:

country waa practically an Inexhaustible supply of
timber. I flnd that the* extent of the Canadian for

Plan to Stop the Scorchers in Suffolk County
Suffolk County farmers are about at the point
where they will offer rewards for the conviction of
automobillsts who exceed the speed regulations.
Suffolk 13 a largo county, with hundreds of miles
of country roads, which It would be financially Im
possible to police.
George Miller, of Eastharapton. chairman of the
Board of Supervisors, has a plan that. if carried
out. may seriously Impede automobile speeding.
This., Is to place "thank you. ma'ams." at frequent
Intervals alone the public roads frequented by
automoblllsts. It in impossible to speed with safe
ty over "thank you. ma'ams," although they do
not at all interfere with a machine going at a mod
erate speed. As Supervisor Miller expresses it.
"There's something doing in the internals of th»
automobiles when they sail over the ridges. They
Just can't stand It. The device Is used in. some
Hudson River towns, and works nicely. Long
Island would do well to make detectives of 'thank
