ttnn, the puppet of tho Tnmmnny
chief. Gaynor himself has been indis
putably the entire mayor of New York,
with no overlord or understudy.
The new mayor nttrncted much at
tention throughout tho country by
walking to the city hull from his homo
In Brooklyn every morning and walk
ing back homo every oveniug, no mat
ter what was the statu of tho weather.
Be made the three mllo walk at a
twinging gait, aud, despite his flfty
nine years, there were fow men who
cured to undertake tho pedestrian trip
vlth him ns pacemaker. Having
been reared on a farm, ho dotermlnod
to got as much outdoor oxerclso as
possible, even though plunged by tho
ballots of his fellow citizens Into tho
toldst of the ncthltles of tho most ex
acting municipal ottlco on earth.
Mnyor Gaynor is the son of, a
Tanner and was born at Whlteslown,
Oneida county, N. Y In 1851. After
receiving his education at Whlteslown
und In Boston he went to Brooklyn In
lb"3 and worked on Brooklyn and New
Yoik iicuHpnperH while hu was study
ing law. lie was admitted to tho bar
In 18"ri. He became nationally known
for his woiL In breaking up rings In
tho local iH'inocintlc piuty. Ho se
cured the coin Ictlon nnd Imprisonment
of John V, McKiine, tho Griivesend and
Coney lhlninl boss, for election frauds.
Ho was elected to tho bench of t tit
uupreiiiu court of New Yoilc and
nerved two terms. Twice hu declined
tho HeiiijK'ratlo nomination for gov
ernor of New Yoik. Ho also declined
to run for Judge of the court of ap
peals and for mayor of Brooklyn bo
fore the consolidation which made that
city a part of Gteater Nuw York.
Elected Mayor In 1000.
Judge Gaynor was nominated for
mayor of tho greater city In 1IKII) and
"was eleotul over William it. Hearst,
Independence league, and Otto T. Bau

1 by Tammany, which jnirs befoto hnd
turned him don n iib u prospective can
didate for the vauie otllcc. Mr, Gaynor
.-was one of the flrst American public
W lnllal ifllaB
men to speak ngnlnst discrimination In
freight rates. Ho mado many ad
dresses on the topic.
Mr. Onynor was divorced from his
first wife, but remarried aud has n
lnrgo family of children, living hap
pily for many years at bis Brooklyn
homo nnd on his farm at St. Jnmes,
Loug Island, whero bo spends much
time In tho summer.

Mr. Gaynor Loves Horses.
Mr, Gaynor takes much pride in his
horses. He likes to stroll into their
Ntalls and rub nnd pat them. "This
one took a prize this year," ho nlwayB
tells his visitors, patting tho Hanks of
n beautiful creaturo that bears tho un
romantic unmu of Lemons. Then ho
stood with his hands in his pockets
and contemplated Lomons for minutes
at n time.

visitors, "1 was raised on n farm, I

Of late years ho allowed even his
relationship with the old unuOtstH to

that line, although ho regretted It.
There wtro u lot of old bonks that he

Major Gaynor has n liking for old
dothts. Why he should want to wear
n pea Jacket In the house may be dif
ficult to llgure out, but he has used
it ns another man would use a smok
ing Jacket. The golf cap Is no beacon
light to the links; Gaynor wears It
not becnuse of golf, but because of its
comfort and its appropriateness to a
Unemotional, but Polite.
During his campaign for the mayor
alty It wns said by Gnynor's opponents
that he was a cold, unresponsive per
son, with little of the human In his
mnnner, but the correspondents who
visited him at his city home aud at his
farm painted a far different picture of
his personality. One of them wrote!
"You nre Immediately nt ease with
him, not because of any effort on bis
part to put you so, but rather tho con
traryrather because he receives you
in bo mnttcr of fact a fashion that It
seems like the resumption of a con
versation ended an hour or so ago.
"Ho Is neither demonstrative nor
Impolite. He hears what jou have to
say, considers It with that contempln
tio look and either refuses In an un
emotional manner to do what you
want or tells you to wait until ho has
got rid of the visitor In the next room.
Then he goes Into the next room, and,
despite the closed door, you can tell by
tho sounds that proceed from It that
he is doing all tho talking. While his
voice Is not piercing, It has n certain
resonant tang to It that makes its way
through doois, and there Is no mistak
ing that Mow, dispassionate, deliberate
delhery for that of any other man on
earth. If Mr. Gaynor had to call any
body a liar to his faco it is very doubt
ful if his tone of oIec or his freight
car delhery would change an lota."
Immediately after Mr. Gaynor suc
ceeded Georg" B. McClellnn ns mayor
of New Yoik In January, 1010, tho gen
eral public began to sit up and tako
notice that an Interesting Individualist
was In the execiitlvo chair. As n Jur
ist and a citizen lie had ctltcised most
enuMlcally the police Hyitom of tho
city, and he soon began to get after
this system In strenuous fashion. Plnln
clothes men were sent bark to pound
sidewalks In uniform. District nnd
precinct commanders were transferred,
and tho pollco were given to under
stand that they were the clty'B serv
ants, not its masters. The mayor
"snooped around" considerably, see
ing with his own eyos how tho patrol
men aud their superior oulcerfl were
executing their duties or t.s(,umlng au
thority which the law did not allow
them. Ho visited tho night courts and
took notes, ns a result of which be
published a letter declaring that moot
of the arrests of persons brought Into
theso couits were wholly uncalled for
and that the policemen making the ar
rests were ut'erly ignorant of their
duties. This utterance of the mnyor
wns lu lino with his well known nttl
tudo ns to tho government of men. He
Is for tho least possible government
consistent with order nnd civilization.
Ho espouses tho cause of personal lib
erty, and nothing makes Mnyor Gay
nor mote lndlgnnnt than the unwnr-'
ranted arrest of a citizen by an igno-
rnnt or vicious policeman.
Early In his mayor's term Mr. Gny
nor created n national sensation when
ho arose nt n mooting of publishers
nnd read a tlerco denunciation of W.
It. Hearst and his newspapers, charg
ing Mr. Hearst with having faUltlcd n
city record In reproducing It photo
graphically after certain alterations
had been mado reflecting upon tho
Gaynor has attended many dinners:
and public functions, and lu every
Instance where ho mado n speech
ho said something that nttrncted wido
attention. For many months ho lias
been looked upon as a strong prospec
tive candidate for thu ptosldentlal
nomination by ids paity m 101S. Mr.
Oil nor supported Bryan lu lfcW nnd
has been always n regular Democrat.
Ho nlvwiH ro.-enls any imputation of
being "Tammany's man," and his ad
mlulHtratlvo nets Indicate that ho is
controlled nly by an earnest desire to
execute his ditlles In Mio interests of
the four millions nnil scrotal huudrod
