"WHERE IS GAYNOR NOW" Charles S. Whitman, the candidate for Dis trict Attorney, was received with round after round of, applause. He said he thought he knew personally more men in the hall than any other of the candidates, and It certainly seemed aa if l-.e did. All through the audience men arose to wave to him and shout to him by name, 8-5 If th« v were old friends. - Mr. Whitman devoted a largo part of his •peech to Justice Gavnor and his record, and ••very time he wound up with the question. "Where is Gaynor now?" The point went home with the audience. 'Where is- he?" some one asked back. • H<- has born put in by Charlie Murphy to Jand his other candidates In offices, and Gaynor doetn't dare to open his mouth," Mr. Whitman replied. at which there was a roar of cheers. Mr. Whitman quoted from Justice Gaynor, "Our judges Trust not only be above corruption, they ir.ust be above suspicion.* -He was ripht. 1 Mr. Whitman said. "But how about Roesch. who Is on Gaynor> ticket?" And again. "Now I come to the last and the worst name on the ticket. It 1s a name that stands for vice and crime." A voice in the audience, "Sullivan!" followed Ly ehouts all over the hall. "Sullivan: Sullivan!" Mr. Whitman wanted to stop, but the crow* w<>u!d not let him. "Go on," they said: "go on." "Do you want Gaynor." Mr. Whitman finished, "with th- crowd that goes in with him. should that ticket be elected?" Before the words were out of bis mouth the reply came in a great shout: • •No:- MR. WHITMANS SPEECH. Mr. Whitman said: The most burning and dlagraceful blot upon the municipal history of U.ts country is the career of Tammany Hall. You have heard that before a good many times. That remark, or that statement. was maOe ■•■:. *«';.r> ago. It was true then; it is true Mr. Tammany has not changed, but th« man «h<> made thttt statement has changed, and v little over a week ago lie placed hi nomination for the h*>a<l of this municipal blot Judge Gaynor, inside Tammany Hull, from the inside Mr. Whitman recalled some of Justice Gay nor's dasbea with corporations and individ uals, and continued: Where is Gavnor to-night? What is he fighting to-night, and for srfcat Is he flghtlng? That is what roncerns you and me. We are not lighting McKane nor the Long Island Water Company, nor the frauds c>f a decade ago. but Just as real a fight as tin n. and the tame spirit, the same fraud. the tame kind of crime that Gaynor was flghtlng then we are fighting now. And where Is Gaynor HI V Our Judges— l learned it more than sixteen years ego; it was true then and in true now — our judges ill:: I be not only above corruption— that Is not •nough. Our judge must be above suspicion, too. That is what Gaynor *Rtd. and he was right. There. is a man <'ii Gay nor" ticket who is running for .-. high«r court than the one he disgraces now— a m;in who himself admitted jnder investigation that he had iak«-., from a woman who was keeping a dive money, the price of a woman's shame, to !ix it al the station house. TAKES CP ROESCHS RECORD. Mr. Whitn:an read the testimony referring to Judge K'»sch. piv.-n before* the Lexow commit tee. Then he added: This in the man that Justice Gaynor is lending the wealth of bis splendid record and his power 2ill past to, to i '.a- •• from a Tow to a higher bench. Claynor is a man that said: "Our iudgei must be above suspicion." Doean't it hound funny? Haven't you a right to deasand from Judge Gaynor: STou have stood In the past for an honest and clean judiciary. k'ou *aid you did, anyway. What did you think ahoul Wright, m:d about Kallon. a man srnoM record is sc clean that Tammany Hall — though he is a Tammany II ammt take him. He is being turned down In this election, nutwlth standing lie has been a clean judge. He is being or has been turned down because he has been h ileaa judge. Where is Gaynor? Not a word. That is the man that. Charley Uurphy baa put at t.'.e head of this list of candidates— 1 would slmnai call him by Baotber name— land them in omVe by the weight if Gaynor's clear record, and apparent ly he loet Dot U;.re to open bis mouth. Then there is another juati on Mr. Gaynor's ticket. James .1. Hagan. He was turned out from the position of Harden of the Tombs by bis owi. Tanunany commissioner because he was so iiad that even Tammany could not stand for him. That is the truth, gentlemen. Jt is susceptible of proof. as you all know He wasn't eood euough to b« warden of the jail at ISJMO a year, but he is good *-noush to be the cl*-rk of tlie greatest counts' in ihe Western H«tnit-phet« at Jlo.oiiu a year. What about Gaynor? He la statiding for Hagan. They have ieeo trying t.-> get Oeynor to express himself for the last few days Not ■ word. Then there is another matter, the last an<l the worst. A man whose name staada for crime, and jilug-uglyisjn, and gambling, and thugs and fraud and viee — you know him. every one of you men — Sullivan, "Christie" Sullivan. Of all the men on earth. "Christie" Sullivan Sheriff of New York! Where la Gaynor? Why. McKane at his worst was an g«-l compared with Sullivan at his best. l>oes Gaynor stand for this? Oh, the ehame of it, ihe -era«.«- of it. the sickening shame of the whole tiling! A judge of the Supreme Court of the great State of New Yit'c a man whuio record— us far an* | know :iis private life- has bean without a spot or blemish, coming out. made the tool of an organization which hates him. but which is taking him up to land the rest of the gang! And Gaynor said — I have no doubt he mrsns it — be *=aid that lie is going to begin on January 1 and fight them from within. l»i<l you ever know of a man to light the bandits by becoming the leader <<f the gang? Now, I waiit to say just a word about myself. I am ii' going t< ninlce any j.romises; lam not going to tell you of any particular man that J can send t«> jail — I can give you a pretty long list of men that 1 woul like to send to jail — but 1 want to uay i liis in all seriousness: Under the law as it is to-day, or the development at our practi an<l procedure, there is one man in this city that stands between, or should, the public and the jireed and rapacity of corporals Interests, soulless of otherwise; there Is one man that stands be tween the people and the thug, and the burglar, and the robber, ai.d the • lef and the pickpocket, and the criminal, whether .•- is ■ big criminal or whether he is ri little criminal. There is one man who lias in his hand a weapon in the criminal law, the only weapon that can make a public ofH cial •:•!<] of obeying the unrighteous demands of the Tammany leaders, that can make ■ rich man as ■ poor man afraid to br'-ak the law. That man is the District Attorney of the county. shall Tammany have him, too? CAMPAIGN'S REAL. OPENING. The meeting last night whs the real opening af Mr Bannard's campaign. It was the first big ratification meeting <i the fusion ticket, and it Is to 1" followed by others in all parts of the <-ity. The real fusion haractrr of the ticket, as explained by William Jay Bchleffelin, chairman of the tine, was reflected by the crowd, both In tlif hall ami on the platform, which contained representatives of all parties united in the fight against Tammany. Mr. SchicffelJn if chairman of the citisena L"»ion, and he • xplainr.' in his short <»p« Dins speech that ;i fusion ticket whs one made up of the. best nvn to be found to fill the offices, irre spective of party. A "dicker" ticket differs from s> fusion ticket, he said, in that on a •'dicker" ticket the ofhVcts are apportioned to the various parties, so many being filled by <-ach Mr. Schieffelin paid a tribute to Herbert Par •oaa, president of the Republican County Com mittee, and his willingness: -a. eapt the i,*-st men. without i<pard to partisan politic*. The fusion ticket was r«al fusion. Mr. Schieffelin said, and every "ii» <if the candldatea empha *iz' I Ma M.t<;n« Waiter M.

"I object," said Mr. Chandler, "to his Baying hat Murphy nominated him and God seconded h^ nomination." Quoting .igain from Justice Gaynor. Mr. .'handler mi id: " 'H* holds us a.', in ih' hollow rf His hand." I don'l know iihoin he moans Murphy or tJ-c Deity." Mr. Chandler added that Abram S. Hewitt had failed to stem the tide of Tammany corruption. and Gaynor could not succeed where Hewitt had failed. MR, MITCHELS SPEECH. John Purroy Mitchel. candidate for President of the Board of Aldermen, was the first candi date to speak. Mr. Mitchel said he had hesitated to take the nomination tendered to him until he was con vinced that he was to be part of a great non partisan movement. He said he still held a job and purposed attending to it rather than going about campaigning:. Speaking of the work In the Department of Accounts he said: No man who has read the papers during the last >ear hut knows that the city of New York, owing to extravagance. Inefficient management, waste and Kraft has neen In ought to a point when- it has almo.'-t reached the limit of its constitutional in debtedness. Ni> man who pays taxes but knows ti.at the tax rate is gradually approaching t lie limit which Is tlxed by law. Vo\i know as any reason able man must know that the only way in which a municipality can produce the means of satisfying the wantu of Us onizens Is through taxation. If we have almost reached the limit then some other means must be found for providing those things which the cltirens desire and are entitled to. V..v want subways. We ail want aubwaya, we nave want* d them for tive 3 etis and are have but one. 1 believe that we, the candidates noon this ticket, are pledged j n honor, and by every sense of decency which we possess, to cast our votes In the Board of Kstlmate. If we are elected, first <>f «n for suhways. I t>elleve that nothing should he permitted to stand In the way of subways, or to have precedence over them, save only public pcho'ils. I am In favor, not of talking suhways. but of building them. And I believe that thai iiuildlnp should not begin later than the spring of UM. Mr Mitchel went on to say that subways were not everything, and that other necessary things could not be obtained if the leaks in the City Treasury were not stopped. The greatest curse in the city, he said, was the political ion tractors, and their headquarters was in Tamm any Hall. He Instanced the bidding on the I2ronx sewer and many other things that had come out in the Haffen Investigation, as well as the craft in condeninatiiru proceedings. In the item of outs, feed and hay alone, he said, the city last year had thrown away |2tts,Oo*>. Mr. Mitchel aroused great enthusiasm when he aa'.d in ending his address: The issues in this campaign are not what we want, but bow we shall Ket what we want. Thera is no issue here of personal liberty or eighteenth century doctrtnary rights. The issue is a business if.stie— how to Ret those things which you need for your comfort, your happiness and your wel fare, and not any abstruse question about personal liberty or personal rights. This ticket stands for a business administration in the city of New York, for the application to Its affairs of those principles which have been tried and found effective In private business; and I, for one, am not one of those who believe that you can hide th*> actual facts by any weak claim that there cannot be applied to municipal affairs the sain.- Standards of efficiency and honesty a*s are commonly applied to private business < verywhere. Mit MANENYS INDICTMENT. Mr. Whitman followed Mr Mitchel, and after him cane George McAneny, candidate for Bor ough President. In Introducing Mr. McAneny, Mr. Schteffelln referred to his long experience with the City Club, and his peculiar fitness for office. Mr. McAneny was received with great applause, and his speech was frequently inter rupted by cheers. H< spoke 6f the efforts that have been made recently to enlighten thepublic as to the methods of politicians in municipal administration, and expressed the belief that In November the people would pronounce against Tammany Hall. Mr. McAneny said that at no time during th.' six ye., of his term had Mayor McClellan been completely a Tammany man. "Tammany cannot t,e altogether either credited or blamed for his acts," he said, "but there have been two m»- n who have perfectly recognized Tammany These two are Ahearii and Haffen, and with their record- the people are familiar." William A. Prendergast, candidate for Con troller was the last speaker before Mr. Ban nard. 1-ike all of the speakers. Mr. Prendergast made special reference to the transit question, and it was with tolling effect that he questioned the powei of a Mayor, however high minded, to ♦•ffeot any reforms In transit conditions if he were opposed by a Board of Estimate under the influence of Tammany. MR PRENDERGAST'S SPEECH Mr. Prendergasi said: m On a number of occasions the government of this eitj has deteriorated to such an extent that there baa been an Insistent demand for .1 change Ke osnt Mstory reminds US' that such changes were t'-ndeii.) necessary, as in IKM and J9Ol, when the controlling fones of the government of the city were actually In l«>:igue with crime of every description, aiHJ that crime was being tolerated by those charged wl«h the duty of preserving public order and a decent execution of the ia»v thai a price whs fixed upon different species "f crime, and those who we.-w aide ti pay the price received their Immunity On each of the:-e occasions when the decency ol tht- city asserted itself and demanded that those re sponsible for the conditions I have mentioned, should be driven from power, It was the Republi can party a.s represented In this city thai fur nished the HK'.il bulk Of the votes to accomplish much n«-ed»-d reforms In management, and on neither occasion was there any disposition shown to claim for that uarty un undue share '>t the official honois. When the nominations which you have gathered to-night lO ratify weie tendered to the candidates a week ago, H wan with th< distinct understand ing that no demands would be made upon them by any political organization, and that in their official action, if elected, they would be entirely free to follow what appeared to them to be the proper course of action In all matters coming before then It Is because they ure unhampered by po llticsi or oihei charactei <<r pledge; it i^ because the) are absolutely free to act ax their own best Judgment suggests, thai the) have accepted these llolljlll.ltlullS There are very few di part men ts of the city gov triirnent tue work oi which, v.i.eu thoroughly ex- Hfiilnrd. will not disclose .Hi.. 1 inefficiency or mln inunagemeiii.

Th.> opposition candidate for the mayoralty, in his speech of acceptance, has assured us that ht« associates upon the city ticket will co-operate with him in securing good government in this city. The candidate for president of the Hoard of Alrter nun, one of those to whom he referred, is re ported to have said a few days a«o that he thought Tammany government In this city was all rtsht. If the statement attributed to him represents his Kenttments, It requires no stretch of the Imagina tion to hellflve that he will he prepared. If elected, to help give us the same kind of government w^ cou'.d expect. MAID MALONE INTERRUPTS. Mr. Barmard'a speech was interrupted by Miss Maud Malone, president of the Harlem Women's Suffrage Union, who exhibited great anxiety as to Mr. Bannard's views on women's suffrage. The police had told Mr. S. hieffelin that he must look out for Interruptions from L. S. Bedford and his Minute Men, the Cooper X T nion comedy trio, but they hud given no warning of Miss Malone. When she propounded her question Mr. Han nard advised her that he had already answered her question and that she would find his views in the Sunday papers. Miss Malone, however, was persistent, and Mr. Schlffelin offered an answer. •1 am In favor of women's suffrage," he said, laying stress on the "I," "but your question is not pertinent to the purpose of this meeting:, and I must ask you to sit down." a CALL ONLY ONE PANAMA WITNESS.

The total value of merchandise from the Philippines in August. Mt, was 11,83.133, against J514.519 ia August. 190$. Curiously enough, the importation of manlla hemp, whl formerly was free of duty, formed Urn larger part of this increase, amounting in value to J1.578.2C6. while ia Ai!mi«t of last year the amount of that art. im ported was valued at only $314,128.
