JEROME TO RUN AGAIN jssnrxcES his dfj isiox IX STATEMENT. Hat Received Xo Indorsement for Re-election, hut Says He la Willing To. District Attorney Jerome announced last night his decision t« he a candidate again for th» office he now fill*, in the following: state ment: Xji the time approaches at. which a District .Attorney for the County of New York is t<» be fleeted. I have had to consider whether 1 should pj-j.)- d re-election to that office After having received for nearly eight yearn the honor and benefit of this office, it seems I t« me 1 should be guided in my determination not by what may seem most to serve my per* for.ai interest, but by the consideration Off v-hether a majority of the electors desire that I fho«M further Mil* them in this position. I know of Ml way in whlrh I can ascertain ikis except by offerinpr myself as a candidate. ■ »nfl I have. decided to peek again a nomination !rT petition and to offer myself as « candidate far election to the. office of District Attorney of New York County. -Have you received any assurance from Tar n Hall of an Indorsement?" he was asked. -I have not nought nor have I received, direct ly or Indirectly, any promise, or assurance of an teaorscmert or support," said the District At torney. "I do not suppose twenty people have |»r»»n of my intention before th« Issuance of this statement. I have not endeavored to learn, directly or Indirectly, what the attitude of Tam many Hall or any other political organization «puld be to my action. I have taken this course for the reasons given In my statement, and for n» other reason. It seemed to me the right course to pursue, and I have pursued it. and I tiave not the slightest Idea whether I shall have to fifrht mv fight alone or shall receive the In dorsement of any political organization. My attitude on that question Is precisely hat it w%f In 1905. I received the support of the Republican organization by the withdrawal of tfcMr candidate and the attempt to put me on Jhelr ticket. WOULD ACCEPT ANY INDORSEMENT. Mi | 1 am simply «eeking to ascertain whether or ■•a majority of the electors desire that I should farther serve them as District Attorney of this county, and I should accept, without hesitation, th* Indorsement of any proup of electors, what ever their politics might be," "What machinery have you row at hand to fader your candidacy effective?" was asked. 1 have absolutely none.

It !» understood list Mr. Jerome will conduct a vigorous cam fritaon the lower East Side. Whether Tammany Hall will indorse Mr. Je raae is wholly a matter of conjecture at this that. As already explained in The Tribune, the titaation in Tammany Hall is peculiar. If Mr. Murphy and his friends decide to nominate Jus tire Gaynor. they will have to abide to a large extant by the wishes of the judge as to whom tier nominate for not only the other places on the city ticket, but also for District Attorney of Ke»- York County. ■ Another perplexing feature of the situation is that Wiiliam R. Hearst is reasonably pure to £ &tt Tammany if Tammany names Jerome for District Attorney, no matter if Justice Gaynor t*ads the city ticket. There is a feeling amons !■* Independf-nce I>»apuers that it would be a faod idea to run Clarence J.

Owing to tlie heavy fog which has prevailed throughout the entire trip the indications are that the steamship Kaiser Wilhelm 11, which is bringing K. H. Harrimnn back from iii" health seeking trip to Europe, will not dock until lute this afternoon. It had been the general understanding that a Southern Pacific Railroad Company tug would meet the liner down the bay and take Mr. Har riman off. so that lie might reach the Erie ter minal and proceed to his country place at Arden with as little delay as possible, but ex- Judge Robert S. Lovett, vice-president of the Union Pneiflc and general counsel for the Har riman lines, received a wireless message yes terday from Mr. Harrlman saying thai lie would remain on the North German Lloyd liner until she docked. The message also said thai Mr. Harrlman would receive the newspaper men on the special train which will take him to Arden. Mr. Harrl rnan said In his message thai he whs in good physical condition. Another wireless m-*s;ige received during the dny said that Mr. Harrtman »as feeling much better than when tlie steamer sailed from Cher bourg These reports regarding the returning rail road man's condition had a cheering effect on Wall Street, and the stock market responded promptly.

The directors of the Union Pacific, and South ern Pacific companies nil] meet to-day to take action on the dividends, and. according to state, ments in semi-official quarters the regular dis bursements will be declared. This will be a disappointment to certain Interests In Wall Street who have been locking for an Increase of from 10 to !_• per cent In the Union Pacific common dividend rate and from « to 7 per cent in that of the Southern Pacific rate. This wUI be the first meeting of the director* of the Southern Pacific company elne<» June, when they took ' steps to retire the preferred stock. In the fiscal year ended on June 30 the company earned |2?.<MM,aM r,ve charges, or about ,10i», per cent on the outstanding stock. Owing to the Hal* of securities, the company Is also strong in cash The Union Pacific has earned 19 per cent on Its common stock In the i>n9 fiscal year, but notwithstanding these big earnings the directors. It is said, will pursue a conservative policy and make no increase* at this time. .Wither will any plans of segregation be discussed at to-day's meeting. Nothing Is likely to be done in this direction. It Is anld. until Mr. Harrlman has fin ished his "after cure" and returned to the Street.

The former, in a flight just be fore dusk, lowered the speed record for the course. which measures six and one-fifth miles. to S minutes and 352-5 .seconds. The latter made two flights of »'.>», arid .V'» kilometres. respectively, in the endurance test for the Prix de la Champaßne. «a kilometre is about flve elffhtha of ■ mile.) Mr. Curtiss'fl trip besran just as the time limit for the start of the Prix de la Champatrne was expiring. Amid the enthusiasm of the French spectators M. Mleriot only a few minutes before had clipped sixteen seconds off m. Lefebvre's record, mad-* yesterday, with his powerful so power monoplane. Suddenly, at an end of the field, a cry went up: "The American is starting:" Cortlandl Field Bishop, president of the a to club of America, was in the crowd which surrounded Mr. «'urti»a - machine. With a preliminary run along the ground of one hundred yards the machine rose lightly and .-dot by the tribunes at a beJaM of sixty feet. It was going at. a high rate of si<eed. Mr. Cur tiss ma«lo the last turn under the mistaken im pression that the rim: line was closer. He de scended so close to earth that many thought he touched it. but. perceiving his error, he mounted quickly and easily, crossing the line high in the air. An instant later the signal was hoisted thai he ha. l made a record. Mr. Curtis* «;nd that he lad not pushed his inn. hint- to the limit of its speed, adding that the most interesting incident of his flight was he view he had of his fallen rivals strewn around the course. It is the intention of the American aeronaut to await the international event for the James Gor don Bennett Cup on Saturday, for which he is th- favorite, after which he will try for the Prix de la Vitesse, the fin*! of which will be contest ed on Sunday.

Pine skies and glorious sunshine, with only a trace of wind, made Ideal conditions for this the second day of aviation week nt Rheims. At tracted by th« sensational performances of yes terday, when six aeroplanes were seen at the same time winging th.ir flight in huge circles over the plain of Bethany, thousands of spec tators came down on the early trains from Paris, •nd when the dirigible balloon Colonel Renard appeared over the field at 10 o'clock, having come from Mams, the tribunes and fences lin ing the field were black with people. The Reward, which Is the first of the dirigible bal loons to arrive, carried out a series of evolutions above the plain. Hubert Latham has been chosen as the third a\iator to represent France in the contest for the international cup. the big event of the week, which will be held next Saturday.

The Zodiac will compete In the race for dirigibles to be held here. THE SUIT OP THE WRIGHTS. Mr. Cartel expressed (real surprise to-day at the decision Of the Wright brothers to sue him personally. He Insists that the Wrights never have specified completely wherein he lias in fringed upon their patents. Mr. Bishop says that the Wright claim for a basic patent Is not good and that Mr. Curtiss does not employ the warping wing principle, which Is a distinc tive feature of the Wright machine. t Partisans of Mr. «urti.sa show considerable bitterness against the Wrights for bringing this suit at the moment when Mr. Curtiss is the sole representative of the United States in a foreign flying contest, especially as they declined to enter this contest themselves, and the Wright aeroplanes here art* classed as French machines. It Is understood that the Wright brothers al ways have Insisted that most of the foreign types of flying machines were Infringements on their patents, but will bring no further suits until after aviation week.
