-LED EPITHETS AT HEARST.
ayor Gaynor Attacked Late Rival.
Extraordinary Occurrence at
New York. April 28.-The annual
joint banquet of the Associated Pre
and the American Newspapers Pub
lishers' association was thrown into
riotous and prolonged disorder to
night, when Thomas T. Williams,
business manager for W. R. Hearst,
was refused permission to speak as
he rose to reply to biting criticisms
Mayor Gaynor had just made on Mr.
Hearts's part in journalism.
For twenty-five minutes the uproar
continued, while men stood in their
chairs and women craned from the
balconies of the banquet hall.
"Mr. Hearst is not present. I am
his friend and have a right to be
heard," shouted Mr. Williams, climb
ing onto the speaker's table and shak
ing his first in the face of the mayor.
"Put him out," "shut up," "free
speech," came from all parts of the
The toastmaster, C. N. Wright, of
the Cleveland Leader, hammered iix
vain for order, while Mr. Williams
stood impassive, but obstinate, and
waited to be heard.
"This is a disgtee to the press of
the United States. It must end,"
shouted Adolph S. Ochs, proprietor
of the New York Times, as he stood
on his chair behind the toastmaster
and begged for a word.
Mr. Wiiliams, I promise you, has
less than forty words to speak, let
me say them for him."
"No, no," yelled the diners.
"Mr. Williams says," began Mr.I
"No, no," broke in the thoroughly
angered diners, with added insist
Succeeded by Laughter and "Dixie."
Mr. Ochs sat down, while the or
chestra thundered "Dixie," but Mr.
Williams still kept his feet and a
semblance of calm was not restored
until the Rev. -Newell Dwight Hillis,
of Brooklyn,. with a witty and felici
tous speech brought laughter that
drove out anger.
The directors, executive members
of the Associated Press and the
American Newspapers Publishers' as
sociation had met at their annual
joint banquet at the Waldorf Astoria.
Several hundred sat down to theI
banquet tables. Mayor Gaynor; the
'guest of honor and first speaker, took
- for his subject "The Press in Its Re
lations to Public Officials." He spoke;
as is his wont, and as he had been
invited to do, without mincing words.
Mayor Gaynor Speaks.
"Those having power," he' said,
"should use it justly, kindly and mod
erately. That makes their acts all
the more effective. I measure my
"words in saying your power for good
is immense. Your power for evil is
not so great as some may think.
"Thd public official who tries his
best to do right and who knows how
to do right, can not be hurt by you.
Some may abuse him, even lie and
forge about him, but they are power
* less to' hurt him. Youi can neithe
make nor unmake an honest and com
"The press as a whole is just to
public officials. When the election Is
over, its wholesome wish is to see
that the one who is elected gives good
government and to help him do so.
But if a publisher or editor be himself
a perennial office-seeker he may de
sire to assassinate every one in his
way and then, alas, what a disgrace
he brinigs on journalism."
Attack on Hearst.
These references, unmistakably
'drawn from the mayor's own political
experience in a campaign of unex
ampled bitterness, just passed, he
drove home with names and specific
*instances, in an attack of almost un
exampled bitterness on Win. Ran
dolph Hearst, who ran against him
for the mayoralty, and who has since
criticised his administration sharp
ly, he applied epithets seldom heard
in public speaking.
Then followed the scene heretofore
described. When order was restored,
Woodrow Wilson, president of
*Princeton university, emphasized the
decline of the editorial in power, and
the growing importance of the
prompt, accurate and unbiased news
George Ade, himself a practical
newspaper man, spoke in lighter
vein and won the laughter of his aud
ience by his deft touches on trials
and enjoyments they had all alike
Messages From Afar.
Thi-oughout the dinner, as if to rea
lize the appositeness of President
Wilson's speech and to emphasize the
coordination of the whole world, ca
ble messages of greetings to the
American Press were read as they
Ana.sia in at brief intervals front
American representatives abroad,
rulers and dignitaries of Eirope,
Asia, Africa and South America.
Cheers broke out from every table as
Col. Roosevelt's was read, and as they
subsided a male quartette sang the
Ode to Teddy.
"Has anybody here seen Teddy?
Has anybody here seen Teddy.
Have you seen him smile?
Sure his copy's hot, his taste is true;
He's a news man through and
Has anybody here seen Teddy,
Teddy, of the matchelss style?"
The remainder of the dinner pass
ed off without incident and in the
best of good fellowship, as if a scene
unprecedent,.d at a public banquet
had not marred the evening.
Mr. Williams left the hall early, es
corted by his friends.
TAKE ONE MORE MARCH.
Veterans March in Mobile Under Bat
tle Scarred Banners-Beauty
and Aged Valor.
Mobile, Ala., April 2$=With halt.
ing steps and trembling linibs, grAy
bearded and feeble, with eyes' in
which the fl,e of youth has been dim
med by the none too gentle passing
years, but with hearts full or pride
and joy, fifteen thousand veteran sol
diers of the Confederacy marched
today beneath the battle-scarred flags
which they followed in the sixties.
Shoulder to shoulder, with comrades
who endured together the hardships
of war, to the soft strains of "Dixie"
played by two score bands, encourag
ed by the cheers of the biggest crowd
Mobile has ever entertained, the an
nual parade of the vetterans passed
The weather was perfect. The sun
was bright and warm, but a breeze
from the Gulf tempered its rays and
made ideal marching conditions. The
line of march wasi elaborately dec
ordted with bunting and streamers.
Huge arches carried words of wel
come to the veterans and from every
biulding the Stars and Bars and the
Stars and Stripes swung together,
flapping lazily in the breeze. Major
Gen. George Harrison, commander
of the Alabama division, was the
grand marshal of the parade. To
simplify the parade formation, "a
map of the line of march had been
printed showing the exact spot at
which each of the twenty-six divis
ions was to form.
The preliminary arrangements for
the parade were so perfect that the
head of the column was set in mo
tion three minutes before the time
for starting, 10 o'clock.
Reviewed by New Commander.
Gen. Clement A. Evans, who was
to have commanded the parade, was,
too weak and ill to review it, and
the new commander-in-chief, Gen.
George W. Gordon, surrounded by
his staff, replaced him. Gen. Gordon
expressed deep regret that the white
haired old commander could not
round out his office by directing the
closing movement of the troops of
The parade followed the line of
march assigned to it, and counter
march^ed through historic Bienville
square; where Gen. Lafayette oncei
reviewed the Continental troops. In
a huge reviewing stand the general
officers and guests of honor watch
ed the parade pass in review.
M~aids and Sponsors Marched.
One of the pretty features of the
parade was, the march of the spon
sors and maids of honor of the Sons
of Veterans. Mobile has a total of
thirty-six public carriages--not
enough to carry all the maids and
sponsors-so the sponsors and maids
of the veterans were given the car
riages and the pretty young women
who came with the Sons marched at
the head of the various camps to
which they were attached..
There were some curious features
in the parade. A number of' old ne
gro soldiers were in line, among
them Jefferson Shields, who claims
to have been Stonewall Jackson's
cook. Jeff was covered with reunion
badges and carried a live tchicken
under his arm. When asked what he.
was doing with the chicken, he re
plied 'that he was just carrying his
lunch. In the Virginia division were
a. group of old soldiers carrying
wasp nests on the end of canes.
Veterans Leaving Mobile.
The exodus from Mobile began im
mediatdly after the parade, but a
great many of the guests will remain
here for the balance of the week.
There will be a repetition of the
Madri Gras parade tonight, and
many side trips have been arranged
for Friday and Saturday.
The official program of the reun
in closd tonight with a repetition
of the Mardi Gras parade by the Or
der of Myths and the Circulating
Ball. The latter was arranged by
the cooperation of all the clubs of
Mobile. There were orchestras at
each club and the sponsors, maids
and matrons with their escorts d,
from club to club, being entertained
in turn at each.
Special trains on all roads left the
city tonight as rapidly as was con
sistent with safety.
WICKERSHAM MAKES REPLYa
Says Inquiry Into Cotton Pool is Not
Against Legitimate Operations.
Washington, April 27.-In view of
the adverse criticism and comment
made on the action of the depart
ment of justice in directing an in
vestigation by the grand % jury in
New York into the alleged cotton
pool, Attorndy General Wickersham
today made this formal statement:
"The action of the government in
instituting the investigation before
the grand jury in New York concern
ing an alleged cotton pool should
not in anyway be copstrued as an
attack on legitimate operations' of
any 'of the cotton or produce ex
changes in the United States.
"The proogodingg being one be
fore a grand jury, and ot yet com
pleted,' manifestly can not with
propriety be discussed at the present
Woman Whips Lobby Sport.
Atlanta, Ga., April 27.-In true
English style Mrs. Seillie Spivey
gave R. H. Blufflington, who, she
says, tried to flirt with her, a good
thrashing in a local theatre last
night. As a result the "mere man"
with a black eye and otherwise the
worse fo - the encounter is occupy
ing a cell in the police station charg
ed with "mashing."
When Bluffington made his alleg
ed advances he was attacked by Mrs.
Spivey, who used her fists to such
advantage that he was soon down
for. the count. Finally by a desper
ate efort he succeeded in warding
off his fair antagonist long enough
to beat a hasty retreat from the
theatre, only to fall into the clutches
of the police.
