The trial of Inspector Cornelltn O.
Hayes, which began In the trial room of
I'ollce lleadquorlcis yesterday morn
ing nt ID o'clock, offered iiti oppor
tunity both to Commissioner Waldo and
ti Capt. Hayes to take the stnnil before

when he snld on AugiHt li! tliHt Com

In the Tenderloin.
The Commissioner and Capt. Have

with the exception of n hrlef time spent
In the witness chair by the Commis
The trial will be resumed this morn
ing nt 10:30 o'clock, and It may be that
after all the Ions list of witnesses shall
have been examined the fact will de
velop that tho entire trlnl was for
naught. There were strong Indications
yesterday that Lawyer Thomas I).
Thacher. counsel for. llayrs. conferred
yesterday with onii of the best known
lawyers of the city and that during
this conference Mr Thacher agreed
with the celebrated lawyer that the fHCt
that Hayes was reinstated for an hour
lat Thursday cleans Hayes's slate
automatically of the charges on which
he Is now being tried, as was suggested
In The Svn yesterday.
And so It Is said that the plan of
Hayes and his counsel since Thursda
had been to let the trial proceed yes
terday and to avoid all discussion of
whether or not Hayes had been cleared
until the trial on the charges was under
way. If HaveaM the end rtPthe pres
ent trial Is vindicated, all well and good.
If he Is not, according to those who
profess to be close to the ex-inspector
and hla counsel, Hayes can nppcnl to
the Appellate Division, be reinstated and
reimbursed with his back salary nnd In
terest and In the meantime he will have
had a pleasant vacation.
No Objection to I he Trlnl.
In other words, by the present trial
he has everything to gain, and accord
ing to high legal ndvlce, nothing to lose.
The trial yesterday morning, therefore,
was permitted by the Hnes side to
begin without nny reference on the part
of Hnyes's lawyer as to the right of
the trial commissioner to proceed. In
this way no opportunity would bo of
fered, tho prosecution In case of a de
cision that the old charges were wiped
out to bring new charges on which he
could he tried according to law.
No one, however, who attended the
nil day session in the court room yes
lerday doubted for a minute that, once
started, this particular trial is to be
toughl out as If It were the beginning
nnd end of everything so far as Hayes
ii concerned, Every Inch was contested

Hayes, who followed him after a re

In a terse, clean cut and decided man

swers to Mr. Thacher's questions were
long and ao roundabout and at times
argumentative that on one occasion
Hayes's lawyer was compelled gently
o reprove him.

The yawl Phantom, one of the fastest
and ablest yachts of hor class enrolled
In the New York and Atlantic Yacht
Club fleets, was totally destroyed by
fire last night and sunk nt her anchor
age In Huntington Hay, about half n
mile north of the Chateau des Heaux
H. S. Uootli, the owner of the yacht;
Thomas Eaton, her captain; the cook
and one hand were on board when the
gasolene stove upon which the cook was
preparing supper exploded and set fire
to the yacht's cabin. All four had nar
row escapes, both from suffocation and
drowning. They owe their rescue to
Elmer Garrctson. manager of tho Ucaux
Arts, who first saw the blazing yacht
from the shore. He rowed out to her In
a small boat and took the men off. Ttie
captain was overcome by smoke and one
of the men was overboard when he ar
rived. The yawl's boat had been sent
ashore with one man before the fire.
Mr. Ilooth, who with his crew Is being
enred fur nt the Chatenu des Heaux
Arts, told the thrilling story of their
vain efforts to save the yacht. "The
explosion look place." said he, "nt
twenty minutes to 7 and the yacht sank
at y o'clock. The blazing gasolene
spread from the galley, which Is mid
day between the cabin nnd the fore
castle, to the mattresses In the men's
bunks. The captain and 1 thought that
by closing her up und throwing buckets
of water on the lire, we could smother It,
hut the smoko drove us out of t lie cabin
after u hard fight.
"Ah soon as we opened the compan
lonwny she burst Into flames on deck
and then It was a light for life, throwing
water on It till help came from Mr. Oar
retson. lie tried with an axe to cut a
hole In the hull below the water line
so she would sink and drown the fire,
but the flames drove him and others off
and we finally had to abandon her when
the hollow mast fell nnd she burned to
the water's edge. I am sorry to lose
her, but glad that no lives were lost."
.lust before tho yacht sank Capt. Gar
retson made a line fast to her stern nnd
buoyed her with a life preserver so that
a wrecking tug that Is going there this

Another tragedy In the life of Burton
W. Gibson, the lawyer whom the
Is trying to oust ns executor of
the estate of Mrs. Hose Hen
schlk Szabo, drowned In his com
pany July t, became known yes
terday. It came out when nctlnR Dis
trict Attorney Wasservogel called upon
the homicide bureau of Mr. Whitman's
office to send to him all the papers In
the case of Mrs. Alice C. D. Klnan, who
was murdered In July, 1906.
The new case was that of George 1
Malcom, a wealthy Wall Street broker,
a nephew of Mrs. Louisa Stenton, Mrs.
Klnnan'smother, and the administrator
of her estate. He had brought suit
against Gibson In that capacity, and
before that could come to trial he dis
appeared and was said to have com
mitted suicide by Jumping on" the Fall
River steumboat Prlscllla on October
The deuth of Malcom ended the suit
for that time und loft Gibson In the pos
session of the property, which the Sten
ton heirs and the woman herself, In her
lifetime, declared had been unlawfully
taken from her.
The two cases are but two of five
tragedies which have attended the busi
ness career of Gibson. The disappear
ance of John Hlce O'Neill, a Gibson
client who had between 16,000 and 17,000,
Is set down as another, the fourth Is that
of Michael Shlppo, who was a witness
at the Klnan Inquest. He was found
drowned In December, 1S0&. The fifth
ts that of Mrs. Szabo.

District Attorney Thomas C Itogers
of Orange county will have a confer

W. Gibson, her companion at tre time
of the tragedy, who turned out to be
the executor of her will, which be
queathed her J10.000 estate to her
mother, said to be two years dead.
Mr. Rogers has said that upon pres
entation of evidence to show motive for
getting the woman out of the way he
would have the Coroner's Inquest re
opened and he might have the October
Grand Jury of his county take up the

long time friends of Mrs. Hzabo; Mrs.

Sixty-fourth street, where the woman
lived, and others may know.

has been working on the case since the
day of the drowning, will accompany
Mr. Rogers to-day to tell what he has

The Brooklyn woman, supposed to
have been the one who appeared as
"Mrs. Petronella Menschlk," mother of

one who swore that she was the mother
of Mrs. Hzabo and the legatee of the
estate. One lives In Brooklyn and the
other In Manhattan. They will be In

the detectives have confidence.
Announcement was made yesterday
that a sister and brother of Mrs. Szabo,
who will bring properly attested Iden
tification papers and who will swear
their mother Is dead, are about to sail
from Trieste for New York.
They are expected to arrive In about
ten days and until that time It Is frankly

Dr. Flscherauer, Arpna a, Kremer, his
counsel, and Deputy Sheriff Willis C,

Wasservogel yesterday and they were
told that the cablegram saying that Mrs.
Petronella Menschlk was dead was not

that the brother and slater were cabled

nnd Wife Found in Portngo
.MISSKIl SINCE WEDNESDAY
Dead Woiiiiin Was Nurse nnd
Second Wife of Muhognny
Poiitiui; Lakc, Me., Sept. 6.- Daniel G.
Emery, son of the late George D.
Emery, a mahogany dealer who main
tained the largest mahogany plant In
the world, strangled his wife nnd then
shot himself to death some time since
Neighbors among the community of
r.00 people who make up this town
thought It funny that they had seen
nothing of the Emerys since last
Wednesday nnd Investigated to-ntght.
They first found Mrs. Emery dead In
her room, covered by her night robe
nnd having every appearance of having
been shoved Into the corner. A further
search led them to Emery's room, where
they found him stretched across the bed
with the revolver still in lit hand and
several wounds Ir. his head.
The town selectmen examined the room
and surroundings and then reported to
Coroner William F. Huzzell of Houl
ton, who will come here to-morrow and
make an uutopsy.
Emery was about JO jears of age
and his wife ten years his Junior. She
was his second wife, nnd married him
after having nursed him through u
dangerous Illness two years ago.
Emery was born In Indianapolis,
where hla father was engaged In the
walnut Industry, and twenty yearn ago
the family moved East lu Newton, Mass.
Mr. Emery senior engaged In the ma
hogany Industry, establishing u plant
The son was taken Into partnership
with the father 'When he nttained his
majority. About seventeen ears ago
he married u woman In Allston, Mass.,
where he was n member of the Con
gregational church. They 1 ad two sons,
13 and 14 years of age. Several years
ago Mrs. Emery obtained a divorce and
for a time her husband lived alone.
Ills father died and he soon disposed
of the mahogany Industry. Two years
ago he fell desperately til and a trained
nuribe was brought Into 'his household
to nurse him back to health. She not
onlv won the battle with death, but
interested her patient, nnd they were
married shortly after his convales
cence. With plenty of money the couple came
here from Massachusetts and estab
lished a home In this small town. They
were apparently much attached to one
another and no reason can be found for
the traged). When the neighbors noted
that neither of the couple had been seen
since Wednesda anxiety was ex
pressed. The opinion prevails that Emery
strangled his wife first nnd then on
Thursday night, when he saw that she
was dead, shot himself. Some neigh
bors here say that. In their opinion,
Emery hod completely lost his mind.
Ills health was about gone and It Is
believed that his Illness preyed on his
mind, ills divorced wife nnd children
nre alive nnd said to be living In In
diana. The late (Jeorge D. Emery with others
had a mahogany concebslon from the
Nlcaraguan Government for wood
shipped to this country and sold to the
Pullman Palace Car Company. In 1907
the Government charged . that the
Emery company had violated Its con
cession and seized the company's plant,
vulued at $250,000.
Emery called on the United States to
send a warship to Blueflelds to protect
his Interests. The dispute was referred
to arbitration and Nicaragua agreed to
pay $600,000 In settlement of a claim for
the annulment of the timber concession.
There has been trouble In collecting It.

Koosevelt's Secretary of Commerce and
tbor, was nominated for Governor by
acclamation In a stampede of the Pro
gressive State convention late thla
Mr. Straus, ns permanent chairman of
the convention, was on the platform at
the time the stampede broke loose. It
came like a thunderclap to him.
The Prendergast nnd the Hotchklss
forces had been enguged for five hours
In nn oratorical battle In the effort to
bring about the nomination of their
favorite. Secretary Manchester had
completed the role of counties In the
call for nominating speeches. Comp
troller Prendergast had been formally
put In nomination by George A. Green
of Kings. William A. Chadbourne of
New York bad put William H. Hotch
klss In nomination.
Mr. Hotchklss mounted the platform
and declared that Mr. Chadbourne had
mimed him on his own authority and
esponslblllty, but Mr. Hotchklss did not
renounce the proposed nomination. In
his speech he left a loophole by which
ills followers could vote for him.
Secretary Manchester's voice In call
ing Yntes, the last county on the list,
had scarcely died nway when John C.
Magee of the Fifteenth district, Nevr
York county, rushed to the plutform',
merely nodded to Permanent Chairman
Straus and without by your leave In a
voice worn almost to a whisper by hard
usage In the convention nnd by speeches
made in Vermont for the Progressives
In the recent battle addressed the con
vention. Mcfter'a nmlnallno; Speech.
"Fellow citizens, ladles and gentle
men," he said, "I have Just come down
from Vermont. I ask you people nt
this convention to make no mistake.
We want to put a man up for Governor
that no man will be afraid to cast his
vote for, against whom there can be
no charge levelled of misconduct of
any kind, one who can sweep the Stat
from Montauk Point to Lake Erie and
carry every man of every race, religion
and creed; a man whose name is known
throughout tho civilized world; a man
the mention of whose name brings a
tear of sympathy to the eye of almost
every man and woman In the civilized
land; a man whose name wherever men
are found with red blood In their veins,
Irrespective of race, religion and creed,
will be carried thundering throughout
the State to victory. There Is no
chance of defeat with this man at the
head of your ticket. 1 nominate th
illustrious and honorable Oscar tf. 4 ,J
"We should take no chances in thla
fight. You couldn't omit one word If I
used the entire dictionary In praise of
the nominees, Mr. Hotchklss and M;
Prendergast; but Mr. Prendergast or
Mr. Hotchklss would cause friction In
the State. We want no friction In inn
election. Wo want success and victory.
"Gentlemen, remember! lumember,
that Rome, was saved by the cackle of
the goose. I havo no political prestige,
but 1 want and charge you to put up
a man for candidate for Governor who
cannot and will not be defeated.
"Gentlemen, gentlemen, heed me.
Make no mlstnko about Oscar S. Straus.
You will make no mistake In putting
him up na your candidate und you will
capture victory and success. No man
has had better distinction nt home and
abroad than Mr. Straus. 1 asl. you to
vote for him."
