PRESIDENT TO SPEAK OUT
Expected to Define Position in
Letter and Speech.
TO AVOID CONTROVERSY
Mr. Taft Devoting Greatest Care
to Documents Which He Is
Beverly, Mass., Aug. 21. — As time goes
it becomes more and more apparent that
no direct answer will be made here to the
reports of a break between President Taft
and Theodore Roosevelt and the charges
alleged as a foundation for the rupture.
Although the silence of the last few days
is still strictly maintained, it is believed
now that President Taft intends to make
Ida position clear in the letter he is pre
paring for the Republican campaign com
mittee handbook and the speech he is pre
paring for the conservation congress at
St. Paul. Mr. Taft has been working on
these two documents almost continuously
for the last two days. He. realizes the im
portance of what he may have to say at
this time, and is devoting more care to
the letter and the speech than to any pub
lic utterances he has made since his in
The letter and the speech, so far as
known, will not be controversial The
President is said to recognize no situation
«-::lling for a controversy. Mr. Roosevelt
baa made no statement in support of the
reported break. There is nothing definite
on which the President could act, even if
;■■ liKil a desire to do so. •
"With th* j important work that he has in
band. Mr. Taft evidently has decided that
this i» not the time to enter into a news

form pledges and what it intends to do
in the future in the way of recommenda

will make clear, and it is said ho Is
-.villinsr to stand or fall by what he has
to say. As to state fights— and it is the
N*ew York State fight which is alleged to
have created a break between the Presi
dent and the only living ex-President—
there is every reason to believe that Mr.
Taft will restate what he has said here
many times of late: That he does not be
lieve ii to he the province of the Chief
Executive to interfere in state fights, and
that in dealing with state situations he
has confined himself to urging on the va

to state leaders what they should do. There
is every reason to behove- that he applied

That the President, disregarding local
issues, is stiil intent en bringing about a
situation in the Republican party as closely
allied to harmony as is possible under all
of the circumstances, is shown by the fact
that his campaign committee letter is re
ported to contain a dc-claration that there
is no desire on his part, or on the part of
any one closely identified with the admin
istration to road any person out of the
party. T;:is is taken here to mean that
the President has no fight with the in
surgents, but la giad to welcome them as
Republicans. During the last session of
Congress the President clearly defined his
position as to what constituted a Republi
can. He lieM that all men who were will
j ing to support measures which clearly were
framed in compliance with pledges in the
party platform were entitled to be regarded
as members of the party, no matter what
position might be as to the House
rules or the t^peakership. It is also said
here to-night that President Taft will point
to the fact that aU of the legislation he has

As to the tariff. President Taft, it Is be
lieved, will lay chief importance on the
results that it is hoped will be accom
plished through the work of the new tariff
commission. The party platform called for
a revision of the tariff on the scientific
principle of difference in the cost of pro
duction here and abroad, with a fair profit
to the producer. It also called for "im
mediate revision" and the public demanded
immediate revision. lii bringing- about im
mediate revision it was obviously impossi
ble to make that revision scientific. The
means of securing the needed information
was not available, and the time was too
short. The President will point out what
he believes to be the good features of the
Payne-Aldrich act, and will declare that a
real, scientific revision, based on the mass
of Information the Tariff Commission will
collect, will undoubtedly be had If the Re
publican party Is kept in power.

Any one who could talk of prosperity in tho

KNOWS ALL MONKEY TALK
Garner, After Seven Years' Study
in Jungle, Tells of Experience.
TAUGHT ANIMAL ONE WORD
Chimpanzee Knew Fire and All
Distinguished Shades of Color
— Brings Fine Specimen.
A modest student of human and near
human nature, with the patience of the
proverbial Job, came back to civilization
last nignt on the French liner La Tour
aine after a sojourn of seven years With
gorillas in the wilds of Africa. He was
laughed at and ridiculed for his enterprise,
he said, but he remained with the simians
for seven lons years and was able yester
day to tell some things of the hairy tribe
and to support them with practical demon
The unassuming: traveller was Professor
R. L. Garner, of Philadelphia. He was ac
companied by a gentle little travelling
companion named Susie, who was described
by the women passengers of the Touraine
as the dearest, cutest little monkey-lady
that ever came out of the jungle.
Professor Garner was not extravagant in
his assertions about his studies in the
fronded African suburbs where the friends
and relatives of the missing link abound-
He said he had found that the chimpanzees
and gorillas have a language with a vo
cabulary of about twenty or twenty-live
words: understand eventually sentences
spoken to them continually and are able
to distinguish not only colors, but shades
of the same color. Practically all his as
sertions, he said, he could prove with the
little seven-month-okl chimpanzee., Susie,
who accompanied him from Lake Fenian
Vaz, In the French Congo. The only thing
which surprised Professor Garner during
the voyage from Havre was the realization
that the sweetest and cutest Susie made
love to Armand, the bis French butcher,
on 1-a Touraine.
Animals Answer His Calls.
Professor Garner set sail for Cape Lopez,
or. the West African coast, some years ago.
He left Philadelphia on September 28, 1903,
and throughout the seven years he has
moved about among the monkey tribe, ob
serving them fron-. within a steel wire cage
of two cubic metres.
The wanderings of this modern llysees,
with two tribesmen and two rifles, led him
through wild sections for a radius of about
one hundred miles. He lived on fruits and
vegetables exclusively, and, indeed, planted
a fine garden at Lake Kernan Vaz. which
served the double purpose of feeding him
and attracting the gorillas and chim
panzees he wished to observe. He learned
something of their monkey business and
their monkey talk and was able to imitate
them. Often be would call out to his chat
tering neighbors and they would answer
him from the trees and underbrush. They
never came when he called, but they an
He made friends with many monkeys
taken when young, and while he seldom
locked them up they roamed about his
camp, muking no attempt to escape into
the jungle. While moving about to a n^w
camp, however, he lost his steel cage, which
fell from an upturned canoe, and he had to
build another out of bamboo and native
Professor Garner said yesterday that the
chimpanzee has some memory and much
affection, but that the gorilla has practi
cally no memory at all, and wiien in cap
tivity has to be kept under guard. He saw
three splendid specimens of gorilla, he said,
that were about six feet tall and averaged
about threo hundred pounds In weight.
Teaches Chimpanzee One Word.
He said he had a male chimpanzee called
Moses who could talk. His vocabulary
consisted of one word, "feu," which is
French for fire. The animal, he declared,
could say this word distinctly and would
always repeat it whenever h<s lighted a
match or held UD a blazing stick from the
By the use of p. box of many compart
ments, each covered with a lid of green or
red or blue or yellow, he found that the
chimpanzee could distinguish color. He
said he often put a piece of sugar in the
compartment with a red lid and then turn
the box over to the monkeys to open. Ac
customed to finding the sugar unde.r the red
lid, the little monkey pupil* would invari
ably open the right cover. When he shifted
to green or yellow, according to the color
used for the day's experiments, the mon
keys would recognize the color under which
the sutrar lay and get it.
Monkeys have a sense of ownership, he
said, and seldom intrude upi-n one another's
families or particular dwelling places.. Pro
fessor Garner will take Susie to the Univer
sity of Pennsylvania within a few days and
gi\ : f> demonstrations there of his observa
tions In the jungle. He has been studying
the monkey for twenty years.

noises on Willow avenue, which during the

Wright, his male nurse, as he was being
removed to a window, on the outlook, the
Hoboken Heights, as he termed them.
After sitting a little over half an hour at
the window, reading and talking with Mrs.

ever to the bed.
Not satisfied with making his way in a
straight line, he went around the end of the
bed, and got to the other side before Luke
could get near enough to assist him, and
be felt quite proud of his feat. He chaffed
Luke about failing to look closely enough
yfter bis patient, and peemed not to have
suffered any evil results of his escapade.

Mr. Adamson had the longest respite
from active attendance yesterday of any
that has fallen to his lot since the Mayor
was wounded. He left the hospital shortly
before 4 o'clock and went home to visit his
wife, and went for a drive with her, return

who saw the Mayor yesterday.
Mayor Enjoyed His Steak.
When be handed out the bulletin at 9
o'clock Mr. Adamson remarked that it had
been prepared some hours earlier. Dr. Ar
litz had left the hospital by that time, and
the Mayor, after getting his dinner, bad
gone to bed and was sleeping peacefully.
He had enjoyed his sitting up, Secretary
Adamson said, and had insisted on remain
ins: at the window for an hour in the after
noon. He wa-s in a cheerful mood all day,
and seemed to enjoy his steak and potatoes
at midday. The difficulty which he ex
perienced in oWaJI vwir.g has entirely disap
peared and the coughing no longer troubles
The Mayor's voice has not recovered its
usual tone, however, said Mr. Adamson.
He added that Mr. Gaynor speaks distinctly
enough, but in a very low tone. In fact,
his secretary saiJ, his voice seemed to have
lost In volume since the first days he was
In the hospital. The surgeons assert, how
ever, that he will recover his natural voice
in a. short time.
Secretary Adamson had expected to tell
the Mayor the whole story of the shooting
yesterday, but Mr. Gaynor showed no in
terest in the matter at all, t-o nothing was
said to him about it. He ha£ never asked
about his assailant nor aas he asked who
prevented the would-be murderer from
completing his work, lie does not know

No Decision About Bullet.
The. surgeons have not yet decided
whether to operate before the Mayor leaves
the hospital ot wait until he has rested and
recovered his full .strength. The bullet,
they say. is in such a position that it does
not interfere with him in any way. and
there is no reason why it may not remain
where it is for years, but t£ey expect to
remove it within a short time, probably on
his return to the city after recuperating

While the Mayor himself would seem by
his conversation to think that his St. James
home would be a pood place to which to
go on leaving the hospital, the surgeons
seem to incline to the view that the Ad
irondack* would be preferable. At St
James hi.s neighbors would all call to see
him, and the visits of many people would
cause him to fatigue himself talking. It
is therefore more than likely that when

STARVED IN THE FAITH
O'Neil Said to Have Been a
Baptist Minister of Jersey City.
Los Angeles, Aug. 21.— From a story
of many broken threads secured from Alice
Griffin, .sixteen years old. the authorities
believe that "John Irving O'N'ell." who died
to-day as a result of a religious death fast
agreement, formerly was a Baptist minis
ter at Jersey City, X. J. The authorities
say that Alice Griffin is a niece of Dr.
George A. Griffin, a Brooklyn optician.
The story also leads to trie belief that
Mrs. Nellie Bojle. with whom O'Neil was
living, is also from Jersey City. As a result
of the prolonged fast her condition Is .-•. n
The condition of the sirl is the most grave
of the four persons found In a bungalow in
Arroyo Scco yesterday, and af- a result it is
difficult to secure a connected story. She
refers to her father as a detective for one
of thr; Ka&tern railroads.
With J. E. Butler, an old man. also party
to the agreement, and who is seriously ill,
the three occupied a bungalow in what has
been discovered to be a Holy Roller colony.
The members of this colony have assumed
an attitude that hampers the authorities in

It Is admitted, however, that much fast
ing has been indulged in, but this is the
first case where death has resulted. O'Neil
refused to partake of food and died with a
smile on his face. The others are more cli
able to the wishes of the authorities, but
recovery in any of the cases is doubtful.
Dr. George A. Griffin, who lives at No.
430 Third avenue, Brooklyn, said last Bight
that he was a brother-in-law of John Irv

O'Neil, he said, was formerly a wholesale
liquor dealer, first in New York and then
in Paterson, N. J. Five or sis years ago
he went to Dallas. Tex., where he became
a Baptist minister. From Dallas he went
to Bisbee. Ariz., where he assumed another

TRIPPED, DANCING ON ARABIC
Young Man Ends Vacation by Hob

Jacob W. Mayer, jr.. of Una city, tripped
lightly aboard th" White. Star liner Arabic
when she left Liverpool for QaeenatOWß

had enjoyed a fine vacation with bis parents
abroad. The trip was excellent, and Mr
Mayer, being a good dancer, availed himself
of that recreation on deck TLuiaflay night.
There were no banana peels about, but
srmehow a mist stole gently about the liner,
and before he was aware that the [ me
planking had become slippery, Mr. Btayex
fell during a two-step. His ankle \\as
sprained. Dr. M.Masf, r. the ship's sur
geon, bound the injured limb, and did all
he could for the young man. but the pain
did not abate. •
Finally the doctor wrote a prescription
for the young man and told him the ship's
carpenter would make it up for him. A
deck steward was sent below with the pre
scription, and within two hours brought it
back filled. It Was a pair of good b.it

Mayer hobbled ashore yesterday. He ex

Nothing more was seen of Qxe boat until
early yesterday morning, when ■* waS

time she returned, apparently in trouble, to

Whether the boat became unmanageable

Armstrong and to those of Captain Jam**
