CAYNOR TO STICK
TO MAYOR'S DUTY
ANNOUNCES REFUSAL TO RUN
In Letter to Creelman, Mayor Says
He is Determined to Serve Out
7ew York, Sept. 27.-James Creel
mar. of New York, made public today
a letter from Mayor Gaynor. Mr
Creelman decided on this step because
he became convinced today that noth
ing but this action would prevent Mr.
Gaynor's nomination by the Demo
cratic State convention. The letter
"St. Tames, Sept. 26, 1910.
'"Dear Mr. Creelman:
"I am this day writing a letter to
Chairman Dix stating that I am not
a candidate for the nomination for
governor and refuse to become suci.
I do this to remove all doubt on the
subject which may have arisen by
reason of irresponsible statements
which I am informed are ,ing cir
culated. No utterance of mine has
vut the matter in doubt.
"'Some have said to me that the con
Tention may nominate me, although
I am not a candidate. It seems to me
that it might appaar vain or egotisti
cal for me to assume in my letter to
Mr. Dix that that extraordinary thing
might happen. I therefore write this
supplemental letter to you to take to
Rochester and show there so as tO
-prevent my nomination if it should
-appear to be imminent.
"Make it plain that if nominated I
-would decline to accept. I could not
abandon to their fate the splendid
-men whom I have appointed to office
-and who are working so hard for good
government, nor could I abandon the
people of the city of New York after
so short a service. You may make
-this letter public in advance of going
-to Rochester if, in your judgment, you
think the situation calls for it. Btt
do not do so unless it be plainly nec
essary. Every honest man will rin
"W. J. Gaynor.

Exciting Employment For Skilled Se
Cret Service Xen.
The tracing of counterfeit bills baik
to the persons responsible for their
issue is a curious and exciting em
ployment. The experts assigned by
the government to this work are
among the most skillful members of
the secret service. The protection of
the currency depends In large measure
upon their efficiency, and the pains
they take are almost infinite. The fol
lowing case is one illustrating the diA
ficulties which the secret service peo
pie meet and overcome.
A bank clerk in Cleveland had de
tected a counterfeit twenty dollar bill
in the deposit of a small retail grocer.
An expert was sent for and under
took the case.
He found that the grocer had re
ceived the bill from a shoe dealer, who
had it from a dentist, who had it from
somebody else, and so on, until the
secret service man finally traced the
bad note to an invalid woman who had
used it to pay her physician. When
questioned this woma'i sa.id that the
money had been sent her by her
brother, who lived in New Orleans.
The sleuth looked up the brother's
antecedents and soon :' came Con-l
vinced that he was the man wanted.
The br,other, however, soon proved to
the satisfaction of the secret service
man that his suspicions were unfound
ed. Indeed, it appeared that the mon:
ey had been received by the New Or
leans man in part payment for rent
of a house owned in Pittsburg. While
the sleuth was a bit discouraged, he
couldn't give over the case when he
had gone so far, so he took the next
train for Pittsburg.
The tenant of the house in Pitts
burg proved to be a traveling oculist
who spent most of his time in the mid
dle west. The secret service man had
the good luck, however, to catch him
just as he had returned from a trip,
and the man at once recognized the
bad bill as one that had been given
him by a patient in Cleveland, the
very point whence the sleuth started.
The patient was a boss carpenter.
The secret service man got his ad
dress from the oculist and went right
after the new clew. At this point he
had a premoniLion that something was
going to happen, and he wasn't dis
Th~ carpenter, an honest old fellow.
'said that he had received th'e bill from
a certain Parker. The said Parker
was the small grocer in whose bank
deposit the counterfeit had turned up.
The expert flew to the grocer's as!
quickly as a cab could take him and
found it closed. He had left town.
Afterward it was shown beyond
question that the grocer was the agent
Iof an organized band of counterfeiters.
His shop was a mere blind. That th~e
bill which he gave the carpenter
should get back into his own funds
