That reputation seemed to please Mr,
Ryan to such an extent that after a
spontaneous outburst of laughter he
Imparted the startling Information that
he thought Gov. Wilson had a good

"Shall you vote for hunt" Mr. Ryan
was asked.
"By all means," was the quick retort.
"I am going to Alx-lea-Balns, nd after

"Do you still love Mr. BryanT" waa
the next facetious query, and It broke

"I lovo them all," laughed Mr. Ryan

"Ha! She's Safe!" Passengers
Cry, as JWaiden Slips Down
Ship's Rope on His Back.
Mlsa Ruth Wheeler, who lives at No.
100 Park street, Montclalr. N. J and
who normally does not seek notoriety
of any kind, had notoriety thrust upon
her forcibly and emphatically to-day,
when she was carried dotfti a rope lad
der from the towering aides of the
White Star liner Cedric, tied to the
shoulders of an able bodied seaman.
Miss Wheeler never would have made
the descent, but It was that or go to
Europe with the Cedric, and the Mont
clalr maid was not at all prepared for
the second alternative.
It all happened this wan You see,
Miss Wheeler and Hubert W. Fowler of
No. It Beacon street, Boston, went down
to the White Star line dock to bid
adieu to Thomas L. Norton, a Lake-
vllle, Conn., banker and his daughter,
who were taking a trip to Europe. Miss
Wheeler had come all the way down
from her- summer camp In Vermont to
pay this little tribute of friendship and
consequently she was very, very busy
when the "visitors ashore" call passed
around the decks. The big ship was
out In the stream before she knew It.
But youns Mx, Fowler was ashore,
even It Miss Wheeler was not He
began to yell frantically and Jump up
and down, signalling to the Cedric that
It was carrying an extra passenger to
Europe. Then he got busy and char
tered the tug Thomas S. Watkyna to
put out into East River and attempt a
rescue of the maiden.
Miss Wheelsr and bar friends on deck
meanwhile had set up a loud screaming
and the captain of the Cedrlo realized
that he bad somebody aboard that
wanted very much to get off. But the
tide was strontr and stopping the big
ship In midstream was a dangerous and
difficult thing to do.
One of the White fitnr tugs ran along,
side and toook a line Just as the tug
carrying the redoubtable rescuer from
Boston snuggled In under the sldn of
the btc liner. ,
A rope ladder was slung ovsrboard.
A rope was wove around Mies
Wheeler's shoulders for greater secur
ity, then, seated on the' shoulders) of a
proud but ttnppy sailor, sho went over
the side, while someone above paid
out the line.
All of. the Cedrlo'a passengers lined
the rnls and sent up a husky cheer
when Miss Wheeler, blushing but safe,
Jumped from the sailor's ahouldera to
the deck of the tug and thanked him
very prettily. After that the Cedrlo
went on Its way to Europe.
