Puts Aside Visions of Candy and
Toys To Be Honest.
If any one ever doubted that nine
year-old "Joe" Paul, who lives on the
third floor of the tenement house at No
321 East lO9th street, was honest he
need do so no longer, for "Joe" proved
yesterday that he is not only "square,"
but that he possessed a will power
which helped him through the greatest
temptation of his life.
-Joe" and his chum, also nine years
old. were playing on the roof of a small
building in the rear of the one in which
they live, when the Paul boy caught
sight of a greenback showing through a
crack in the roof boards, and he went to
the spot to investigate. He found two
twenty-dollar bills in a piece of cloth.
The boy saw visions of candy and toys
galore, and so did his friend. But finally
his better self won, and he decided to
take the money to the East 104 th street
station, where he handed it to Lieu
tenant Laskey.
The new? of the find spread through
the n- .-•- rhood, and the police had

Inspectors Ransack Staterooms
After Passengers Leave the
Object Is to Prevent Leaving
Things for Bedroom Stew
ards to Deliver at
House Later.
A customs innovation was put into
effect late last night wben the big Cun
arder Mauretania docked, causing much
dissatisfaction to the <"unard Line offi
cials and to the passengers who chanced
to leave any remnant of baggage m
their staterooms.
Every first cabin room on the Mauri
tania was searched last night by a
corps of six customs inspectors after the
rooms were vacated by the passene^rs.
The Inspectors went up one rorridor
and down another making minute ex
aminations of bedding, dressing; table
drawers and the crannies of the wash
stands. The bedroom stewards, anxious
to collect soiled linen and prepare the
rooms for an airing:, were annoyed by
the presence of the inspectors.
It mad' 1 no difference to the inspectors
who had occupied the rooms. Collector
Loeb's policy of fair play was put Into
effect in the superlative degree, and the
suite of Lord and Lady N'orthcliffe. Seth

Paul Morton, Mrs. Potter Palmer. Mel
< Ule A. Stern and other prominent per
son? were open to search just as much
as the humble inside room of Mrs. Jones
or Mr. Smith.
A customs official, when asked why the
. of young- inspectors was assigned
to ransack empty rooms, said the prac
tice was not new and that It was done
to make sure that passengers did not
leave anything behind after coin?
ashore There were some passene^rs
who chose to sleep aboard the Maure

Want AH Baggage on Pier.
It was said that the customs officials
were anxious to have all the baggae^
of passengers on the pier when an in
■ tor was assigned to examine it a>
a rule all baggage is brought ashor«
from the rooms If not. the passenger
soon discovers it. and either sends h!s
steward back for it or goes aboard to
get it himself.
It was said by an official of the line,
however, that the customs officials need
not sn to the extra trouble of acting as
"reminders" for absent-minded pas
The customs officials look upon another
side of the question. It has been con
tended that some passengers, with
malice aforethought, deliberately leave
small luggage and articles of value In
their staterooms and give orders to the
steward that If anything should be left
behind would he kindly see that It is
sent to their address.
A representative of the line said last
night that a steward has no right to
take anything from the steamer to the
house of any passenger. All articles
found in the staterooms must be turned
over to the pier superintendent, who
makes a record of them and informs each
passenger th.it the article or articles
have been found in his or her room.
This is the first time that the general
searching of staterooms has been put
into effect in any of the staterooms of
steamships docking at the Daw Cunard

"OM Cuard" May Stampede the
Convention for Him for
Says Ex-President's Name Was
Sprung Without Warning",
and Welcomes Direct
Nomination Fight.
State Chairman Woodruff transferred
himself yesterday from the peace and se
clusion of his Adirondack camp to the
heat and tumult of Republican politics
here. He conferred long and earnestly
with William Barnes, jr.. at the Republi
ran Club, talked over the telephone from
state headquarters with many political
lights and made public a statement last
night, in which he said that ■- thing
for all good Republicans to do was to
! let bygones be bygones.
"We're looking ahead." was the ton*
of hia utterances. From whaf. was
! learned of the general tenor ■■.= con
ference with Mr Barnes, though, the
I "old guard" is looking ahead with Jcy
ou? anticipation of hat 3 ajntaaj to hap
j pen to the Progressives if they win con
trol of the convention, rather- than with
a keen expectation of the harmony they
• say they desire.
"Old guard" leaders Last Bight, follow-
I ing the conference of "he state chair
man and the man from Albany, -who -.3
■ just BOW guiding the destines of the
1 "old guard," were discussing a tentative
plan, said to have been evolved, at that
conference, for event 3of the conven
This, briefly, was to go through tha
, fight over temporary chairman as well
as possible; if whipped, to fight aga.in3t
direct nominations with, all possible
[strength: to hold the baJknoe of power
as between "Progressive" candidates for
Governor — "old guard" expects to
have none — after a proper interval
to stampede the convention for Theodora
Roosevelt for Governor.
Then, all that having been accom
plished and thS "old guard" not being
responsible, on the face of the returns,
for the results of the convention, the
"old guard" is to sink back into a calm
serenity of observance of the way tha
Progressives can get votes.
To be sure. Mr. Roosevelt has let it be
known that under no circumstances
would he take the nomination for Gov
j ernor. But if nominated and forced to
j decline he would be helping the "old
; guard" show the inefficiency of the Pro
< gressives, is the way It i 3 figured out.
Meantime, there is some slight ques
. tion abroad whether the Barnes adher
j ents who are talking In this fashion are
not putting- out a little thunder to rnaks
Mr. Roosevelt think twice before goins
I to the convention-
Fight Over Direct Nominations.
Chairman Woodruff, In his statement
last night, admitted that there would be
a fight over direct nominations on th*
floor of the convention, and welcomed it.
! He pledged his cohorts virtually to ac«
' cept whatever decision was reached bj
the convention, and said ha hoped tha
Progressives would abide by that de
i cision. After that, of course, there would
be harmony. naturally.
Mr. Woodruff raised one point wher«
his statement dbaaafl agree with, Presi*
dent Tart's letter to L.loyd C« Griscom,
Mr. Woodruff said that Mr. Griscon'3
proposal to make Mr. Roosevelt tempo
rary chairman, came as a complete sur*
; prise.
Yet Mr. Taft In hi 3 letter said that en
August 15 Vice- President Sherman tele
phoned to him from New York, saying
: there was a proposal to oppose Mr.
Roosevelt's name with that of Ser^atot
; Ellhu Root.
Mr. Sherman about that time was in
conference with Woodruff. Barnesi
Wadsworth, Ward and Hendricka. and
out of that conference came his selection
at the state committee meeting 1 the fol
lowing day. Mr. "WoodruTs statement
i follows:

Much to my surprise and entirely without
warning. Mr. Griscom. who sat in the com

before the meeting without saying a word
to me about It. moved to substitute the
name of Mr Roosevelt for that of Mr. Sher

the committee were committed to Vlce-
President Shermans selection.

is it important to discuss It now.

President Taft was In no way involved
In this matter, as the members of the state
committee acted entire within their au
thority in selecting a temporary chairman
without a.<« far as I know, a single one of
them consulting with him about it; but in
view of the apparent asrront to Mr. Roose

I leit called upon, as chairman of the com
