CALLS GAYNOR NAMES PARANOIAC WHO CANT TELL TRUTH, SA YS IV INS. l/i'ughs at Justice's Insinuation That lie Was Paid to Aid Hearst. TTflli&m M. Ivms, replying yesterday to Justice <Jays""s insinuation that he had received money fir ccraing out for Hearst, said that Justice •~fT" seemed to belong to a cla«s incapable In his carefully prepared statement Justice r.v.cMid: iirir.s came out for Bannard. and now he is ft*r Hearst. Money can do some things*, but « cannot do everything." Mr. Ivir.s laughed derisively when his atten tvm was called to the attack. *Tes, yes," said he. "I saw it. 1 had always kltherto supposed Judge Gaynor to be a para noiac. But his base insinuation of yesterday in regard to my speaking in favor of Mr. Hearst rrrnr.ces me that he is only a pseudo-paranoiac »nd IQte all men «->f that class is incapable of telling the truth, which is one of his character istics in political matters. Judge Gaynors chief •roub:e at the present time seems to be his inability to make the public take him seriously «*er he tries to pose as the savior of the city." Mr. Ivins was full of his plans for a Hearst t-.sss meeting in Carnegie Hall to-morrow night. Ther-i will be a mass meeting at Carnegie Htll on Monday night, to put Mr. Hearst in r.-i£ir.a*uon and to nominate city and borough tickets and a county ticket for New York," be Bail. "A Flatform will be presented to Th» meeting for adoption, which will he a frank asfl grr.u'.ne expression of purposes, instead of ii series of platitudes. loophoW and non-com nitinents. such as the platforms upon which the oth<?r two candidates for Mayor ar* running. MR. HEARST TO SPEAK 'The meeting will be presided over by Charles fpragpj" Srrath. Mr. Hearst will attend in per j-or. ar.d declare his attitude with respect to the entire matter of city government. ' Mr, Hearst needs no introduction to the public, but he will nevertheless make a thorough «ad tireless canvass of the city, and will be in touch with the entire community at prac tically every moment of the day and night frora now until Election Day." The Hearst men ac» very happy over the fact that Mr. Hearst is to run for Mayor, but they p'ar.t. more candidates of the Hearst type nn th*» ticket wjth him. If the time were not so short they would make a determined effort to K et a -present ative of organized labor on the ticket n j lace of either William A. Prendergast. fusion rsndidate for Controller, or for Sheriff of New Vnrk County, in place of John S. Shea. But the trouble with a scheme of that sort is r'.at the Republicans will not stand for it. They are so confident that the fusion ticket. pith the aid of the Hearst men. will sweep all :he counties and boroughs that no one is will n»r to withdraw to please Mr. Hearst. They say i^f. vEesrst has announced that he is poir.g to ■Wn Mayor with the fusion nominees en hi* r.cke:. and that settles it. GETTIXCr READY HEARST PETITION.

Withdraws Candidacy After "Care ful Reflection"— Plans Canoe Trip. District Attorney Jerome withdrew last night us an Independent candidate for re-election. His public announcement was made in thess few words: After careful reflection it seems to me I ought no longer to continue as a candidate for election to the office of District Attorney -if N"ew York County, and I have to-day filed my declination of nomination as a candidate for that office. As John A. Henneberry. chief clerk in the District Attorney's office and Mr. Jerome^s cam jaicn manager, turned out the lights in the .-iHtxirate suite of rooms that had been rented for headquarters, in the Bryant Park Arrade, he said that neither he nor Mr. Jerome had any thing further to add to the statement. Borne OB« who heard of the dei ismn of Mr. Jerome remarked laconically: -He has Just quit and pone fishing. That's all." Ifr Jerome did not visJi Ma headquarters lay, and it was said that he was at th« theatre trying to forgot it last night. He has arranged to leave the cry <>n Monday for a week's canoeing.

"PARSONS SPOKE TRUTH' Ex-Judge Wadhams Tells of " Deal" with Cannon. In an address last ni^ht before the Direct Nominations League of the 17th Assembly District in Colonial Hall. 101 st street and Columbus avenue. City Court Justice Wil liam H. Wadhamp. who, under appointment by Governor Hughes, is investigating charges against Superintendent of Elections Leary. cor roborated the statements of Herbert Parsons regarding the alleged Tammany-Cannon deal and went even further than did Mr. Parsons. Mr Wadham«< was denouncing boss nomina tion of candidate and vote dictation under the present system wht-n he exclaimed: When Speaker Cannon needed votes to hold himself in power in the national Congress many bills «.-re pending at Albany that had for their object the, relief of the citizens of New York from unjust prevailing conditions. But Tam many was opposed 10 these measures, for. while benefiting greater New York, they would have interfered with the secret plans "of Tammany bosses. So b Tammany agent went to Wash ington and returned to New York, with it all .-ipparently fixed up, but they could not use Con gressman Herbert Parsons. Mr. Parsons has told you Fomethins of this shameful deal, but not all about it. I am informed, and have no doubt that an agreement was readied whereby upstate Repub licans sold their votts on more than one New York bill to Tammany Hall in exchange for Tammany support for Speaker Cannon. Start ling as it may seem, the deal embraced the de feat of the direct primary bill, public service measures, the New York City charter and the ballot laws, all measures for The g-ood of the people, of New York, and required the adoption o? tl-? Eleventh avenue bill. Pp.aker Wadsworth r^mseiT, *s hi* .->-t of the execution of this deal, had his lame cAJl^d out ef ord*r and voted for the Eleventh avenue "grab bill" when under ordinary circumstances he Wild not have voted at all.

British Chancellor Soys Attitude of Lords Moji Force a Revolution. Newcastle. England, Oct. 0. — David Lloyd- George, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, re ceived a popular welcome this afternoon at the Palace Theatre here, where he gave to an audi ence of four thousand what hi called a "plain talk" on the subject of the budget. "We are going to send that bill up to the House cf Lords and get all the taxes or none," said the Chancellor. He did not know what would be the final action to be taken by ""poor Lord Lansdowne. with his creaking old ship and mutinous crew." but if the Lords tore up the constitution by Interfering with the money bill they would force a revolution. "The Lords may decree a revolution, but the people will direct it if it is begun, and issues will be. raised that are now little dreamed of, the answers to which will be charged with peril for the order of things which the peers repre sent." When Lloyd-George was leaving th* theatre a crowd of suffragettes made a dash toward his car. Lady Constance Lytton, who was armed with a hatchet; Mrs. 11. N. Brailsford and Miss Davison were arrested. Earlier in the. day four other sympathizers with the suffragettes were sentenced to fourteen days at hard labor for in dulging in a window smashing campaign at the local Liberal Club this morning.

Asa result of the great care of watchers at all registration places yesterday, the third day's ac tivity In that line for this year's election was productive of only a few arrests for irregular ities. The liberal rewards offered by President Parsons of the Republican County Committee undoubtedly had the effect of making the watchers more than ordinarily keen. The sum total of illegal registration reported was three. Louis Frannichlarico. of No. 75 Mott street, was arraigned before Magistrate Ccrrigan in the Yorkville court on the charge that, as he had beat) convicted of a felony, he had registered illegally Frannlchlarlco was held In $2,500 bail for examination to-day.

TO ARCTIC "YO HO HO! AND A BOTTLE OF RUMr Murder with a Belaying Pin the Mildest Incident of This Trip — —Ice Sinks Ship. There drfted into the American Seaman's Friend Society's rooms, at No. 76 Wall street, a few days ag > a young marine derelict named Otto Hermstorf. who spun a yarn that mad-- 'ail hands" sit up and take notice. It was a tale that would put poor old Reuben Ranzo. ..f "chanty" fame, in th«- shade. The "chanty" runs: Banjo was no satlor-JUnzo. hoys: Ran«o: But lie shipped on board of a w hale.r-Ranzo, hoys' Kanzo: otto w;«s no sailor— he W as a machinist— but he was shanghaied on board of a whaler, th* steam bark William Baylies, of New Bedford, one dark night in San Francisco harbor, and he didn't sign articles with Captain Cuttle until that ship had been a month on her w*y to the Arctic ocean. One co ld forenoon, off Point Barrow. Alaska, in latitude 71:24, longitude IM:M we^t, the bark was crushed between two i< ■- bergs *«nd sank in seven minutes, so Otto says, and all hands and the cook had to climb out on the icebergs until they were rescued by another whaling bark like the Baylies, named tha Bow head. Captain Tilden was her skipper But this is anticipating. J. Barrett Mugford. superintendent of the society's institute at No. 507 West street, having supplied Otto with a brand new rig. according to instructions from headquarters, told him to respin his yarn for the benefit of Tribune readers, which he did, showing a good memory for details. LOST JOB AFTER EARTHQUAKE. Otto, who is a bright looking German, born in Dresden, and twenty-seven years old, said he was working at his trade at the Union Iron Works, San Francisco, helping to build the United States warships Milwaukee and Cali fornia, when the earthquake rame along, and Fhook him out of a job His fare was paid to New York, and he came on here, going, soon after, to Panama, where h© worked on the canal for eleven months and then returned to San Francisco. On March l. 19a;. whil* looking for work there, a man greeted him with. 'Hello. Shorty, want to g n a-flshing"" When he said "Yes," he was taken out In a launch to visit a friend on board a vessel in the harbor. The man askfi Otto to go Into the "fo'sle" and wait a short time wh:i» lie went to another ship. Needless to say, the "runner" never came back Otto found the "fo'csle" of the Baylies — for it was the whaler filled with a drunken, fighting crew. They gave him some whiskey, and he fe'l asleep, to wake in the morning with the bark under full sail out sid« the Golden Gate, bound on a whaling trip to the Arctic. The Baylies was lost, as stated, and Otto, badly injured by falling from the main royal yard, landed in San Francisco twenty months later, with $5 In hi« pocker, he and the other forty-one men composing the bark's crew hav ing shipped on sharing terms, and that beins- Ms share, ""he bones of tb« four whales they caught— which bring from $5 to Jg a pound were lost with the ship. MET DR COOK. HE SAYS Young Herm«=torf said that the bark, after rounding Point Barrow, where sh? was lost nearly a year later on the return trip, pro rep^.vi in search of whales through the Beau fort S^a to Prince of Wales Sound and through it to Melville Sound, thence through Barrow Strait into Lancaster Sound, where, he says. some time in the winter of 1907, Dr. Frederick A Cook went on board the Baylies and bought some three hundred pounds of sealskins, which he took on board the schooner Bradley to make Clothes for his party, who, it is now known, were soon to start for the North Pole. Neither Captain Cuttle nor his crew, however, knew at that time that Dr. Cook was bound for the polar regions. Otto Hermstorf, according to his story, was gone twenty months frorn^San Francisco. Lan caster Sound, where it enters Baffin's Bay, is only 5.J00 miles from San Francisco, so that the Baylies, under steam and sail, allowing for ice encountered in her cruise, had ample time to coyer the distance and to return to the spot off Point Barrow where she was crushed. fhe Bowhead was short of coal, he said, so it took her two months to reach San Francisco from Point Barrow "Lawrence Island is the first place we stopped at on our outward bound trip." he said. "Then we anchored off Indian Point, and the next time at the Big and Little Diomede Islands, opposite Cane Prince of Wales, the most western point of .America, in the Bering Strait. Then we called at North Head and Tellar City, where we coaled. Going north all the time, we etopped at Port Hope and Cape Smith. ' The thermometer wa6 down to 60 degrees be low zero the day our ship was lost We had been t-teaming through the ice pack all night, with two men at the wheel, when in the fore noon she got between two big bergs, which crushed her so quickly that she eank in seven minutes. 'A Portuguese boat steerer was killed by a Bailor on board the Bowheau" .11 a fight over cards in the forecastle," continued Otto. "He hit him with an iron belaying pin. Captain Til den handcuffed the man who did it to a spar 011 deck in zero weather, to make him confess, and he kept the crew locked in the forenold for a time to make them tell. They se. fire to the ship before he released them." Hermstorf opped hero to remark that the trial in San Francisco of the alleged murderer was still pending. Some of the crew, he said, wrote to Washington, telling of the brutality of the Bowhead's skipper, with the result that he is unable to get command of another ship. On the return trip. Otto says, the men wtre com ptlled to eat bear liver and walrus liver. They expected to go to Cape Nome. Alaska, for pro visions, but they continued on to San Francisco, touching at Dutch Harbor on the way. Otto has been treated at the Eclectic College. No. ISO East 14th street, for ' s Injuries, and the doctors say he may go to work if he can find a job where he does not have to lift any thing. He spent six months in the Marine Hos pital at San Francisco, where he was treated tor the injuries received when he fell from the main royal yard.

[By Telegraph to Th» Tribune 1 San Francisco. Oct. 9. — Charles Warren Stod dard. the poet, author of "South Sea Idyls." who died recently at Monterey, was supposed to nay» left a number of unpublished poems, several of which he read to his friends while on his sick bed. To-day, when A. M. Robertson, the pub lisher, and Ina Coolbrlth. a poet, searched his effects they found nothing. His housekeeper at Monterey was appealed to. and she told a re markable story, asserting that the dying poet burned all his manuscripts a day or two before his death. She said he called her to his room, ordered a fire built in the grate »nd then handed her a mass of manuscripts to burn. When these papers were all In ashes he sank back satisfied. Stoddard wrote two poems just before death. "In the Shadow" and "When Life Frowns." They were extremely pessimistic, but were char acterized as exquisitely poetical by those who read them. JEWELRY SOLD RAPIDLY. Wholesale Discharges Follow Novel Thefts in Big Pittsburg Store. Hv Tel»!ji-»ph to Th« Tr!bun# ] Pitt3burg. Oct. !>.— Through the wholesale dis charge yesterday of women employes of Kauf mann's. one of the largest department stores in Pittsburg, it became known that there had been wholesale peculations from the establishment. Thirty-five of the women clerks manipulated the sales checks in such a manner as to make de tection improbable. Most of the pilfering took place in the jewelry department, from which the clerks abstracted articles valued at from fir> to $25. making out sales checks as low as £> cents.
