This uncertainty of temper made for
Gaynor most of his enemies. He was

The death of Mayor Gayncr has
cast gloom over the political head
quarters of the allied factions which
had tendered him the mayorality nom
ination. Such men as Comptroller
Prendergast and Borough President
McAneny, who were indorsed by the
Gaynor independent nominators, are
nonplussed at the situation. Mr. Pren

candidates on the ticket headed by
John Purroy Mitchel.

complex as it was before Gaynor's
death, as Whitman would iraw many
votes from both Mitchel and McCall.
Another eventuality is that Hearst

appears, is the only one who can give

FIGHT ON HEARST AND
The death of Mayor Gaynor recalls
: an address he made April 30. 1910, be-
on a relentless warfare against
Hearstism. This notable address was,
j in part, as follows:
"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 to do so.
In that just frame of mind you often
forbear much. This is true of all hon
est and unselfish publishers and
"Disgrace Upon Journalism."
"But if a publisher or editor be him
self a perennial officeseeker he may
desire to assassinate everyone whom
he thinks in his way. and then, alas,
what a disgrace he brings upon jour
nalism. "It is painful to mention such ex
ceptions and to speak of their acts,

one thing out of many. As late as

'In plain words, two state prison

GAYNOR HAD FIGHTING
CAREER AS PRIVATE CITIZEN,
AS JUDGE AND AS MAYOR
William J. Gaynor was born at
Whitestown, Oneida county, X. Y., in
1851. In 1873 he went to Brooklyn
and in 1ST5 was admitted to the bar
and began the practice of law.
In 1890 he became judge advocate
on the staff of Gen. Mcl.eer, second
brigade national guards of the state of
New York. A vear later he became
nationally known for his work in
breaking up political rings within the
In 1893 he was elected judge of the
Supreme court and again in 1907 was
re-elected for fourteen years, but did
not complete his term.
In 1909 he was elected mayor of New
Aug. 9, 1910, he was seriously
wounded as he stood on a steamer
ready to sail for Europe.
In office he became obnoxious to
Tammany, which refused to run him
gain this year, and he became an in
dependent candidate for the mayor
ality. Was Born on a Farm.
Mayor Gaynor was of Irish ances
try. The homestead which was his
birthplace was carved out of the wil
derness of Oneida county, X. Y, by
his grandfather, an Irish immigrant.
His father inherited the farm, but ex
istence on small farms in those days
when Mayor Gaynor was a boy was,
hard, and while following the plow
young Gaynor determined to seek a
wider field for his work.
He attended the country school and
the academy of his district and be-

j tow a part of Brooklyn, became a
newspaper "reporter, and in 1S75 was
admitted to the bar. There his politi
cal life began. '
Fight to Clean Up Fiatbush -
Mr. Gaynor's first political fight was
one to make the community in which
he lived, a -clean one. While only a
small municipality of 20.000 inhabit
ants, it bore the reputation ;of- being
most vicious. Dives, supported with
their brutalized 'hangers-on by a crimi
nal ring, had paralized the civic life
of Flatkush. Gaynor determined to
clean up things. ' - ' .
At the age of 30 Mr. Gaynor built up
a slate of municipal officers wlio would
not stand for . corruption. When he
showed it to his friends they told him
it would be impossible to elect them.
They warned him not to antagonize
the men in power.- They told him it
would be useless without , the aid of
a regular organization, f . .
: When the ring and its allies threa
tened the young lawyer and told-him
he would be driven from the. city, his
reply was to call a mass meeting and
tell the people of these threats. And
although the machines of both politi
cal parties were against him and the
bosses threatened to ruin him and ex
ile him, he won his fight. He elected
his entire reform ticket.
Under the new regime he became a
police commissioner and soon two
processions were hurrying out to Flat
bush. One was on its way to jail and
the other was in flight. Since that
time Fiatbush has been one of the
cleanest sections, socially and politi
cally, in the vicinity of Xew York.
, Tackles Bosses in Brooklyn
Mr. Gaynor's first fight with politi
cal bosses of big caliber came in 1SS9,
after he had- moved to Brooklyn and
sought for years to find an opening in
the armor , of patronage with which
the ruler of that city had surrounded
himself. During that year the ring
bought a water company's plant and
franchises for $185,000 and made a
contract to sell it to the city for 1,
500.000. Mr. Gaynor attacked the ring
court, carried the case to the highest;
tribunal of the state and defeated the
sieai. j nen ne pain an me cosis oi i
the .proceedings, $11,700, out of his
own purse. This so impressed the
man in whose name he had brought
the suit that when the latter died he
made Mr. Gaynor the sole executor
of his 25.000,000 estate.
Spurred by this victory he found
armor.' Many of the political gang
sters were stockholders in the elevated
railway company. This company had
never paid a cent of taxes to the city.
Mr. Gaynor determined that it should.
At his own expense he brought suits
which finally resulted in the payment
to the city treasury of $1,960,000 in

various city offices were nominated, had been assisted. The ship's doctoi
Against his protest Gaynor was nride j cjuickly determined that it was mc
a candidate for the judgeship in the j serious for the mayor to proceed or
supreme court of the state.
In one of the bitterest political cam
paigns in history Gaynor carried his
whole ticket to victory. It was in this
fight that John Y. McKane, long a
sub-boss of the city, was detected in
the practice of ballot-stuffing, for
which he and many of his supporters
were sentenced to prison.
It was whileyjn the bench that Judge
Gaynor gained national reputation.
He believed in publicity and took ev
ery occasion to denounce these
schemes in open court. He became
such a good source of news that each
of the papers in Xew York. city, as
well as the press association, always
bad a man at the reporters' table.
Attacks City Adminstration
During his service on the bench
Judge Gaynor often attacked the city
idministration for abuses of pow'er
and tor negligence in caring for the
people. He condemned the police sys
tem which had countenanced ' club
bings afid brutality and which had
stood tor arbitrary arrests for trivial
of doubtful offenses. He condemned
the system of accepting "stuw" bail
which had enriched hangers- s and at-
laches of the courts.
He was elected mayor of New V'ork'
city after many times refusing to be a
candidate for that office and after hav-
ing turned down the chance to be!
named as the democratic candidate for
governor on' many occasions. His
but' that organization no longer

Reforms which Judge Gaynor adv
cated were put in effect by Mayc
Oaynor. Alter his election he wa
able to make practice of theory and h
did so. Heads fell by hundreds on h.
advent at the city hall. Ability rath
than party usefulness became the ne
essary road to ofticcholding. '

It was on Aug. 9, 1910, that Mayo

steamship Kaiser Wilhelm der Gross

vessel to take a trip to Europt
James J. Gallagher, a discharged etr.

Gallagher had in some way lcarnei
that the mayor was to sail on th
Kaiser Wilhelm, and he spent one o
last nickels to go across to Hoboken
after buying a revolver.
Chatting with Friends When Shot
The mayor was talking with a part;
of friends, including the president o
Chile, when Gallagher approachei
him. The party was on the top deel
of the steamship and it was near sail
ing time. Mr. oaynor was gtvtni

Almost Nominated for Govtr.iot
While the mayor was recuperating j
the politicians were framing a slate j
for the democratic state convention :
which was to nominate him for trov I

nor's life had increased his popularity
and it was thought for a long v.hile
that the mayor would be nominated
The democratic politicians wanted
him. Charles F. Murphy, leader of
Tammany hall, wanted to name him,
the newspapers charged, if for ne
other reason than to get him out of
the mayoralty, where he had not
proved the tractable kind of friend
that Tammany likes to have in office.
But Gaynor from his St. James re
treat, at the last moment, forbade that
his name be presented to the conven

Mayor Gaynor returned to the city
