CREW SINKS WITH BOAT? Mystery Surrounds Wreck Off Diamond Shoal UghUihip. Henufort. N. C, t>ct. 10. — An unknown schooner mysteriously sank In fourteen fathoms of water due west of the Diamond Shoal lttrhtf-hip. prob ably some time last night, as it was not utrffl this morning that the lightship crew descried topmasts standing well out of the water. No where was there visible any sign of the crew. As the weather has been mild for the last few days, the only theory that is advanced to ac count for the wreck is that the schooner prob ably sprang c wide leak and went to the bottom before aid could reach her or even signals be seen. T t is possible that the crew may have had no chance to escape. The wreck lies in the track of coastwise steamships NOVEL IN CAMPAIGN. A. A. II art sell's Book on Burdick Mystery Used Against Him.

CRANE UNDER A CLOUD RUMOR OF ALLEGED SERI- OUS INDISCRETION. Minister's Reference in a Chicago Publication to the Chinese-Jap- anese Status Blamed. Washington, Oct. 10.— fhnrles R. Crane's sud den, unexpected nnd hitherto mysterious recall to Washington by Secretary of State Knox as he was at the i>oint of sailing from San Fran clsco to assume his duties as minister of the United States to China was occasioned by de velopments Involving the question of Mr. Crane's fitness for that post This much is known to niKln In ■well informed quarters in Washington. Unless Mr. Crane is able to rlear himself in the. eyes of Secretary Knox of an accusation of a serious breach of what the State Department retards as the first principle of diplomatic dis cretion the conference with his official chief may result in the abrupt termination of Mr. Crane's connection with the diplomatic service. Mr. Crane arrived in Washington late this af ternoon from his hurried Journey across the continent, reiterated his declaration of ii*n.; rance as tn the occasion for his rather dramatic recall from the water's edee of the Pacific, and declined to discuss the matter In any of its as pects, beyond saytrfg that while he expected to he here several days be had reserved new ac commodations for the transpacific voyage on the steamer sailing from San Francisco on Oc tober 2(> — a week from next Wednesday -The State Department has in hand, it is said, what it regards as more or less convincing evi dence that Minister Crane, on the eve of his departure for the Far East, became responsible, for the publication in a Chicago newspaper of what the department views as a most indiscreet discussion of the attitude of the United States toward the two treaties recently negotiated be tween China and Japan. This le department I;'. lils to have been the more serious because tlat attitude is still under confidential consid eration, no decision having been arrived at. AN INDISCRETE PUBLICATION. While the speeches delivered by Mr. Crane before the American Asiatic Association and at a dinner given in his honor at Chicago are viewed at the State Department as having been at best unwise and undiplomatic, they had been carefully considered after their delivery and before Mr. Crane started for San Francisco, and, although deprecated, were not regarded as Justi fying- any change in his plans. The Chicago publication falls, however, in the eyes of the department, into a category very dif ferent and far more seriius. China and Japan early last month entered into treaties which contained provisions regarded by the State Department as very surprising and possibly objectionable to this government. By these treaties Japan would secure rights in Man churia which are held by some diplomats to be In direct violation of both letter and spirit of the Portsmouth treaty. China has agreed in the treaties now under consideration that before extending her present railway system in Man ehura she shall consult Japan, and. presumably, obtain her consent thereto. This provision la re named aa inharmonious with the declaration of Japan In the treaty of Portsmouth, that sh-- will not obstruct any measures taken by China for the development of her empire. Another provision relating to the operation of coal mines on both *ide<; of the Antung-Mouk d-n and South Manchurlan railway, it 1= thought, may be objectionable to this government as violating the policy <>f the "open door" as be— un by the United States and subscribed to by Japan as well as by all of the leading powers of Euro] c. ThN "open door policy" is intended to wure "equal opportunities" to all nations to assist In the development of china without Im pairing her territorial integrity. Matters of a highly confidential nature with respect to the position of the United states re garding these and other provi«i;i?is of the treaties between China and Japan are alleged to have been divulged in the Chicago publication. and for these disclosures the State Department h; disposed, in the absence of proof to the con trary, to hold Minister Crane responsible. Ac cording to authentic Information obtained here by Thi Associate.! press, it is of this re sponsibility that Mr. Crane had been summoned to Washington from San Francisco to acquit himself. The officials of the State Department are ex tremely reticent on the whole subject, most of them affecting entire ignorance of it. and all referring inquirers to Secret&iy Knox, who up to a late hour to-night was inaccessible. Mean while to-morrow's developments are awaited with an interest which may fairly be described as Intense. A "PRELIMINARY CONFERENCE." Late to-night it became known that during the evening Mr. Crane had had a ''preliminary conference" with Secretary Knox and Henry M. lloyt, special counsel to the secretary. When Mr. Crane returned to his hotel he ad mitted that he had seen Mr. Knox, and that in this "preliminary conference." the matters at Issue had been discussed. He was evidently deeply concerned about the .situation, but re fust-<3 to say a word about It. "Will you resume your Journey to China?" Mr. Crane was asked. "i am under salary," lie replied, "and subject to ordere." Mr. Crane" told Ills interviewers that upon his arrival In Washington be had received a note from John W. Foster. ex-Secretary of State and J.li.ii.ster to China, and now special adviser to t!;' 1 Chinese government :.nd its American lega tion. 11. declined to divulge the nature of tin communication or of the conference which lie said lie had had with Mr. FV>Bter. • Mr. Crane staid it was his desire to conclude his business lure so as to catch the steamer Korea, sailing from San Francisco on the 20th, on which he has encaj^d passage. At Secretary Knox'a house nil Information re garding the conference with Mr. Crane \ytiß re fused, but Mr. Hoy! admitted that there had been a conference. THE CASE OF SENATOR BLAIR. A c 1-. similar In nome of Its aspects to that of Mr. Crane occurred about twenty years ago, when China objected to tl •■ appointment of the then United States Senator Henry \V. Blair, of New Ham|:i lire, as minister to that country. Mr. Blair, like Mr. Crane, had reached the Pa • ifi.; Coast «!!

WISE ASSAILS GAYNOK CALLS JURIST'S SURREN- DEB TRAGIC SPECTACLE. Rabbi, Analyzing Tammany Ticket. Says One Drop of Milk Cannot Whiten Bottle of Ink. Rabbi Stephen P. Wise, in an address on "The Spirit of Compromise.? bitterly arraigned Jus ti c Gaynor yesterday for liis surrender to Tam many Halt in accepting the nomination for Mayor. To a large congregation, in the Free Synagogue, In 81st street. Rabbi Wise declared thai the Juris! had all but effaced the splendid work of a lifetime by hiring out to corruption and bosses in order to run f.>r Mayor of New York. I>r. Wise referred to the life of Justice Gaynor as having been spent In warfare on civic cor ruption, and said that he had compromised at this time by refusing to turn against the "ban ner of piracy." As a candidate for the executive head of the city Dr. Wise- declared thai Justice Gaynor was being used to wash and hide the hideous fare of corrupt politics", and if there was any desire to reform the Tammany organisation it was not being shown at this time. Then he added that no respectable man could purify the Tammany organisation, which he characterized as the most corrupt body In the history of politics. A TRAGIC SPECTACLE, SAYS RABBI. After speaking of the Tammany ticket the rabbi denounced the Brooklyn jurist for allow ing himself to be placed at Its head, declaring that such a spectacle was little less than tragic. He pointed out the refusal of 1 ".rover Cleveland to lead a ticket In Buffalo which was not made up of men of personal worth, and ended ids ad dress by saying that Justice Gaynor had been led Into compromising with the men apainst whom he had battled to eliminate political law lessness nnd corruption. Describing Justice Gaynor's action Vr. Wise pnid: We have durinp the last f»w days witnessed a striking illustration of the spirit of compro mise, as it has brought low a Jurist of learning. probity and distinction. In accepting tbe may oral nomination from polluted and polluting hands Judge Gaynor has stooped to conquer, forgetting that what one would have highly one must have holily. Assuming that Judge Gaynor did not peek a nomination from Tammany Hall, he would have won the respect of every decent, right thinking fellow citizen if to those who dared to a^k him to carry the banner of piracy during this rnm paign he hnd answered In words with which as h student of the Bible he cannot help being fa miliar. "Is thy servant a dog that he should do this thing?" After a life spent in waging wnr upon Civic corruption, Judge Gaynor has been unequal to the ■great refusal." and. Instead of scornfully rejecting the proffered invitation to head a typical Tammany ticket, he has lent the dignity of his honored name to the worst of cruises. It is the happiest augury for our civic future that New York views with pity and with ang -r the plot to make Tammany Hull seem n able during the election season by covering up its hid. '.mis face with a Gaynor mask. Under the pressure of necessity it may from time to time nominate a respectable candidate, but the time is past when a candidate, however hisrh his reputi ere fallen, can make Tammany Hall > resp<>etabl«\ QUOTES GATN'OR AGAINST HJJIgBI.F. If Tammany Han is to go year after year, decide after decade. in its grafting and looting, and then if to wipe out its sins by nominating a respectable man for office, there Is little hope that our city can be permanently freed from its foul and foil clutches. Judge Gaynor'a record of good service la ef faced by his act of 'hiring out" to the men whom lie has called "the miserable bosses and their harlotlike tools." He has chosen the easy path. He has preferred a nomination with what he Imagines to be the certainty of victory to a nomination from the independent citizen ship of New York, which could not guaranty his election, and what are. we now to think of his words In the past years, during which he hi s bitterly arraigned the corrupt and lawless bosses of his party? When Tammany Hall nominates a ticket mad up of Roesch and Sullivan and Hagan, it is altogether fitting and proper, but when a Gaynor consents to lead such a ticket, the spec tacle becomes little less than tragic Men are paid to rise on the stepping stones of their dead selves to higher thing* It must be that Judge Gaynor dreams of rising on the stepping stones of his finer self to the higher things of political fame and power. Tli' difference between Judge Oaynor and his fellow candidates, Dr. Wise said, was that while •.• were sinning in darkness, he was sinnim? againsi the light. Speaking or Oaynor's state mtnt about answering an Inspired call. !>r. Wise said: Without assuming to interpret the visions which come to Judge G.iynor. It Is bard to be lieve that the tiger has assumed the form «>f an angel of light and has bidden him take up the battle on behalf of a finer, nobler New York. As for hearing 'he voice of God In Tammany's mandate to accept its Domination, one is re minded of the words of the poet: "God moves in a mysterious way his wonders to perform." TAMMANY'S FAKE REFORMATION. But there i: nothing mysterious about the body which asks him to lend it, for a time, a cloak of respectability. Everything: about it is plain and 'inmistakablo, and it is known of all men that Tammany Hell la one of the most corrupt political organization*! In history. r:ia|is Judge Gaynor thinks of changing Tammany Hall, al though the character of his associates on the ticket gives no indication of pre-election con version on its part. If there be those who believe that Judge. Gaynor can change that organization for the good and the better, why is there no evidence of such a change in the personnel of the ticket which us led by him? Should he end his asso ciates be elected, he would at bent become a negligible factor, for he would bo outvoted in the Hoard of Estimate and Apportionment, add vvouli by his associates be doomed to be liv!" more than an earnest, well Meaning, vociferous figure. Such as dream that the acceptance of '- ; nom (nation by Judge Gaynor will change the char acter of Tammany Hall seem to forget that brie drop of milk cannot whiten a bottle of ink. If .Judge Gaynor were truly In earnest he would pursue the course followed by Grove Cleveland t\hen In wrist nominated to be the Mayor of Buf falo. He would not accent thf nomination until the party bosses asßentrd to hi." stipulation that ill.- rest of the ticket be made up of men of character and personal worth. The part l«-ai! <rs demurred, but he was insistent. .'.l. I Grow Cleveland marched straight from Buffalo to Albany, and from Albany to - lns;U»n, be can ■ he would not compromise. Judge Gaynor'* sorry plight ha* been brought about by bis surrender to the spirit of compro mise. CARNEGIE GIVES SWITCHMAN SiO.ooo. Money Laid Aride Years Ago. and Its Interest Avails Aged Texan.

Oct. 10.— In order to replenish the depleted supply of corn in the republic of Mexico the duty on that cereal from the United I States has been temporarily rescinded. Many i merchants are telegraphing brokers in the I United States ordering; large shipments. Owing to the prevalence of a severe drouth throughout the corn belt of Northern Mexico. followed later by unprecedented floods, both the growing crops and the supplies of corn In stor- | age have been reduced to such an extent as to entail high prices and actual suffering. To obvl-> ate extortionate prices the Mexican government has promulgated a temporary order removing the duty. POLAR BEAR TRACTION. Amundsen's Plan to Use Twenty Animals on Coming Trip. Hamburg.

PRICE THREE CENTS. CALLS lIEAKST TRAITOR GAYNOR COUNTED ON IUS PROMISE OF SUPPORT. Shocked at His Perfidy. He Says, is Relating Circumatances of the Pledge. Justice William J. Qsja— . at his home. No. 20 Eighth avenue. Brooklyn, last night told how W. R. Hearst had 'first done every thlnsr in his power to persuade him to run for office and had then turned upon him and denounced him. Early last summer the Justice says he and Mr. Hearst had th-ir first meeting to consider the Justice's candidacy. At thru time, in the pres eßrc of Rudolph Block, who la on the staff of "The American," Hearst assured^ the Justice, the latter says, that be would support him. no mat ter what ticket he ran on. even if he was the Tammany nominee. "I am not ■ Tammar.y. hut to Tarn- '.many methods/ the editor Is quoted as saying. ', There was another meeting in September, at which* Mr. Hearst reiterated hia former state ment--, so Mr. Gaynor says, and- then the editor went into the fusion movement. A message from the Justice caused Mr. H t to announce his belief in him. Then the Independence Leaguo held its primaries and delegates were elected^ who were, according to Justtce Gaynor, for the most part in favi\r of his nomination. But Mr. Hearst, declaring Tammany had stolen the pri maries, would not permit a convention to fco called. "It is sail] that this may be an indictable of i fence and it is being looked into," said Justice j Gaynor last night. "There — not ballots I enough to stuff a teacup, let alone a ballot box. And yet the bold statement of Mr. Hearst that • Charles F. Murphy, or Tammany, or some one. ■ stole his primaries, or stuffed his ballot boxes; • seemed to have been gulped down by every I partisan newspaper in the city. "Now m i Hearst ia preparing to have himself nominated by petition. "I never had a moment's Jealousy of Mr. : Hearst." said the justice, "and hate to see his heart so blinded with jealousy and hate si me."* Mr. Hearst later in the evening Denied the truth of Justice Gaynor*s statement, and added I that, instead of asking the Tammany candidate to visit his house in order to urge him to accent ; a nomination. Justice Guvnor had called, "hut | in hand," of his own accord and In his own in , terest. "And." a<Ms Mr. Hearst. "I have r.o : doubt that he had previously visit Mr. Mur | phy's house In the same abject attitude." He j says Rudolph Block, being the editor of the ! comic supplement of his Sunday paper, IMS. shown by "his interest, evidenced so peculiarly in Judge Gaynor'3 candidacy," that "hi has a j sense of humor if not a sense of honor." THE TESTIMONY OF BLOCK. Before talking himself Justice Gayr.or gavej ■ out a ictter from Mr. Block, which follows: I hrv* received your letter, and I cannot rell I you how distressed I am over the course, that j matters have taken. I r^grr-t exceedingly to |be draw into the affair, but inasmuch as I wan ; instrumental in bringing about your meeting i wilh Mr. Hearst and arced you so oft^n on hia I - behalf t» run for- Mayor. I ft? t that: *i nee you I ask fur it and p::t the- matte? up to me. you huvn '■ a right to mv testimony. Shortly before Mr. Hearst left for Europe, last I summer, h«» ashed m~ t" brin^ you to hi* house. I I think this was the second or third time you ; had ever seen him. He asked] yon if you would ! not nil for .Mayer in the fall. You asked him, | why he did not run himself, and sai 1 that if 2m j desired to n:n or would run you mould not gf| la his way. Ke answered that under no circum ! stances would he run. and urged y;>u to r-un. | You asked on what ticket. He responded: "I • don't care what ticket you run on. ill support ; you on any ticket." I suggested then tun perhaps Tammany might I nominate you. He answered: "It makt-s no dif ! fere nee what party nominates him. I will support 1 him.'" And he added: "I am not opposed to '■ Tammany, but toi Tammany methods, and when : it does right it is entitled to credit." You thanked Mr. Hearst and sJid you mig"it : go to Europe in August and that you would think the matter over. He expressed a .vl-*r» '■ that you trould see him in Europe and askeJ; ■ that you let him know your decision ; fter you I got back. Ke said that if you wanted any artl | cle favoring or leading to your candidacy to bo i published In "The American" during his ab ; sence. I was to see that it went in. GAYXOR TALKS OF THE EPISODE. Referring to the foregoing k-tt^r Justice Gay nor said: "To this statement of Mr. Block, who ia a member of Mr. Hearst's distinguished editorial staff, at a large- salary. I add that after return ing from Europe I saw Mr. Hearst in Septem ber according to promise. I said to l:ira that a large number of organizations had already de clared for me for >'ayor end that I raiglit con clude to run. He said that lie had in no way changed his mir.d, and that he would support I rr.c, whatever ticket : ran on or whoever nomi nated me. He reiterated this repeatedly and | with apparent earnestness. He came out inta ; the hall to the elevator as I was leavtesr. and ' took me by the hand and told me to come out ' with a statement that I would run and that he would support me.
