Mr. Hawley said that his brother and Post had had plenty of provisions in the ear, and therefore had not starved. He had received many letters from persons who sent condolences, actinic upon tho supposition that the aeronauts were dead. The new record established by Hawley and Post, unofficially estimated at I*Bso miles, exceeds all previous flights. Only this year Count OdensoX of Russia. claimed to have flown 1.324 miles in forty hours, but the figures were not officially verified. If the estimated dis tances are made official, the long stand ing record of Count de la Vaulx, of 1,103 miles, made in IJMX>. in a flight from France- to Siberia, has been broken by at least three of the contestants in the recent race — the America 11. the Pus eeldorf II and the CJermanla. The offi cial figures will be required, however. definitely to settle the question. Samuel F. Perkins, aid in the Dussel dorf. which alighted approximately 110 to 12.". miles from the epot where the America descended, out of his experi ences last night threw some light on the hardships probably encountered by Haw ley and Post. He said: • It took us four days to make our way seventeen miles through the thick, un derbrush, from where we landed to Kis kinink. and it would probably have taken us twelve days more had we not come upon a r'iidf> who took us ten miles of the ■Masai in the SMI half day. I be- Jieve the delay of Hawley and Post was <s»ie to similar hardships. Apparently, however, they had a river to make their r.ay along, which lightened the hard ships. or it would likely have required znany more days for them to have got in 1 ■ ■ i- h with the world."

MAYOR TO ATTEND A RALLY Will Write Speech, but Not De liver It — McClellan Offers Party His Services. Just why it was that the Democratic, campaign manager waited until this time to make public the story that Mayor Gay rsor h;xl recommended the nomination of John A. Dix for Governor afwr he had decided that he could not take the nom ination himself was not explained yester day. "We haf! reasons of our own." said State Chairman Huppuch, with a sm le. At first reaterday Mayor Gayn#r was not inclined to make a direct affirmation of the. statement of Edward M. Shepard at farnegie Hall on Tuesday night that he. the Mayor, had dictated the nomination of Mr. Dix. T.ater in the afternoon, however, he said: "Yes. Mr. Shepard was right, I recom mended the nomination of Mr. Dlx. I was at first In favor of the nomination of Mr. Prepare himself, but when he was not to be nominated I favored Mr. Dix." James Creelman, who took the Gaynor message to Rochester, reaching there on Wednesday morning before the convention. after a talk with the Mayor yesterday afternoon, said: '•I was authorized by Mayor Gaynor to convey to the leader of the convention that it was his belief that Mr. Dix would be the strongest man to nominate, aid that it was his wish that Mr. Dix be nominated." Did you convey that woid to Mr. Murphy personally?" Mr Creelman was asked. "I would not care to pay ■ whom I conveyed the message." he replied, "but It reached the party leader?" Cree'man Went to Di<. State chairman Huppuch said that Mr. f'r^flinjTi on his arrival at Rochester went to Mr. Dx and Bald: "I am requested by Mayor Garnor to ex tend to you his compliments and to say to you that you are his choice for Governor of New York State." It wan generally reported at Rochester that Mayor Gaynor was anxious to have Justice Keogh. of Westchester, nominated for Governor. Those who were watching the develop ments before the convention were of the opinion that Mr. Shepard was not o\it of the ra^e until Friday morning, the nomina tions being made that night When the. Mayor was first asked yester day recrardinc the Shepard statement, he *aid: 4 Mr. Shepard Is a man who measures his words carefully." The Mayor ask^d what Mr. Phepard had paid Pomebodv replied that he had said »hat the Mayor was indirectly responsible for th* nomination of Mr. Dix. "That hi not what Mr. Shepard paid." re plied ihe Mayor. "He paid T caused the nomination of Mr. Dix." Chairman Huppuch would not «ay that the message of the Mayor fras absolutely responsible for the nomination of Mr. Dix. "As a matter of fact." said Hip chair ir.Eii, 'it was thirty-*ix hours after the re ceipt of the Gaynor message before he con sented to accept a nomination. Tn the. mean time twelve tvparate delegation* bad called upon him. urging that he take the nomina tion.

It was decided yesterday that Mayor Gaynor should attend the rally at Carnegie Hall on Wednesday night. Instead of writing a letter, as he had. planned, he will probably write an address, which will be read for him, due- to the weak voice of the Mayor sin' he was shot. It Is planned to have the Mayor on the platform while the address is read, however. This is the meeting of the Independent Business Men's League, of which Herman.

LEAGUERS HIT DEMOCRATS Prefer Roosevelt "Dictatorship" to Murphy "Bossism." The Independence league mass meeting at the Yorkville Casino last night attracted a crowd which filled the large ballroom.

Dr. William Irving Sirovich, candidate for State. Treasurer, referred to the statement of Edward M. Shepard that Mayor Gaynor had advocated the nomination of John A. Dlx. "I was surprised." he said, "to read that 'Pennsylvania Railroad' Shepard had just found out tfcet instead of Dr." C Francis Murphy, it was 'Professor Pick Potatoes' Gaynor who confined the Rochester con vention and brought forth the 'baby' Dix, and he d-d pick a small potato." The speaker was ridiculing the Demo cratic State ronvention, when a man to the audience shouted: "Hit the Saratoga convention, too. Roosevelt needs roasting a? much as Murphy." Dr. Sirovich stopped to say that if he had to make a choice between the bossshtp of Charles F. Murphy and the dictatorship of Theodore Roosevelt, he would unhesitating ly enroll under Roosevelt.

STIMSON ANSWERS OIK (nnfinnrd from Hr-t pajrr. the night meeting. George W. Aldri.lco and most of his lieut'ii;ints were on the job. before, during an* ntlaf the meet ing. It was a well organized affair and from four thousand to five thousand per sons attended the meeting. The audi ence was enthusiastic especially when Mr. Stimson promised to continue the Hughes standards of administration and declared for cleanness in official life. Om» point which ho made regarding Mr. Dlxs failure to reply to his questions about state issues particularly caught the crowd. He quoted Mr. Dixs sen tence. "Passinar for the time being the success nr failure of the Hughes admin istration from the standpoint of the rent payer and the, taxpayer," etc. "He passes it by, as he Fays, for the time being," said Mr. Stimson, "but he never got back to it. So that I have not found any answer to these cardinal questions in what he said last night." Job E. Hedges, Attorney General O'Malley and Speaker Wadsworth got cordial receptions. Mr. Hedges made one of his typical humorous speeches and brought out roars of laughter when he pilloried Judge Parker. At various times h*> v.as interrupted by a. couple of men in the gallery who had imbibed to the point where they knew they could make better speeches than anybody else. Job stood it for a time, but his pa tience isn't as long as that of his name sake. So, finally, he said: "I judge these friends of ours up aloft are survivals from the recent convention jn your lovely city.'" Thereupon an usher fell upon them, and they vanished. Wadsworth and Merritt with Party. Tho stimson party left Jamestown early this morning, passing through Buf falo and on out along the Falls Road. Speaker Wadsworth, state committee man for Niagara and Orleans counties; John A. Merritt. jr.. his predecessor in that office, and many other Republicans of those counties boarded the Stimson special at Buffalo. At North Tonawanda the first meeting of the day was hHd. a rear platform speech in which Mr. Stim son reiterated his advocacy of the Hughes policies and standards of admin istration to the great appreciation of a big throng. The Niagara Falls meeting was a good one, and it was a cordial audience which filed into the theatre and listened to Mr. Stimson as he denounced Tam many, made his tart replies to the Dix boomerang questions and demanded an swers to his own queries. Mr. Stimson was keen to get to his work. He plunged at once into his subject, with barely a word of introduction. He told of the silence of Dix on the issues of the cam paign, broken at last on matters largely personal to himself. He continued: H has addressed to me certain questions on matters which are not matters of state issue, but which represent questions en tirely outside, or this campaign and per sonal only to myself. Nevertheless, I am ready to answer them, and, although I have only received this morning, within an hour, a copy of his speech, I propose here to give you an answer to the questions which he has addressed to me. Mr. Dix lias asked me why. when I was prosecuting the- Sugar Trust for the frauds in the Custom House in New York— the un derweighing frauds, the frauds connected with the tampering of their scales— I did not collect more than $2,134,000. He is not satisfied with that amount. I collected every dollar of back duties, so far as the government experts could calculate them, after six months' investigation, every dol lar of back duties which the Sugar Trust had failed to pay to the United States gov ernment: and 1 say, in addition to that, that I collected a judgment of $134,000 as smart money— that is, punishment for fail ure to pay those duties and the fraud con nected therewith; and I would prefer to answer Mr. Dixs criticism of the amount that i collected by reading to you lliis statement from the Attorney General of the United States, who was my superior officer at the time, In regard to that prosecution. Quotes from Attorney General's Report. The Attorney General, in his report of last December, made to the President of the United States, commented thus on the amount of this recovery- He said: ••I believe it Is the largest individual re covery ever secured by the government on a claim of that nature." He said further: ••It Is but simple justice to Mr. Henry L* Stimson thai I take this opportunity of com mending his services to the government in this matter, which have been distinguished by extraordinary Intelligence, persistence, learning an 1 address and which have re sulted In the collection of so large an amount and in the bringing to justice of so many of the participants in these frauds." And 1 ask Mr Dix now on my part, where did he get any information which would lead him to believe that 1 had not collected enough when I collected that sum. I ask him particularly whether he pot the Information from bis political ad visers. Alton B. Parker and John B. Stanrhn>lo*. both of whom have acted as attorneys for the Sugar Trust In the cases (i, t I have prosecuted against it. l should like an answer to that question with equal frankness with' mine. In the next place, he asks me why 1 didn t prosecute the SiuTar Truat under the Sher man anti-trust law, and prosecute its di rectors under that law. Well, now. as a matter of fact these are the facts of the situation: I was appointed federal District Attorney on February 1, IPO>>, -?nd I took . the oath of office at 1" o'clock in the morning of that day. At 11 o'clock In the morning of that day, after 1 had been in office just one hour. I was engaged In an examination of the evidence against Hie Sugar Trust, under the Interstate commerce law. In re lation to rebating. and 1 was beginning a Feries of prosecutions against the Sugar Trust which lasted nearly ono year from that date without Interruption, an-1 which resulted in the collection from the Sugar Trust of ■ fine of $l<sS,oon, four times as large :>:: >: - had ever been collected against any defendant in the United States, for rebating, up in that time. I think that pretty fairly accounts for my time for a year. "Every Living Participant Punished." ! was pretty busy, and 1 was pretty busy against the Sugar Trust. Almost imme diately after the cessation of those prose cutions, which resulted in a complete vic tory over the trust and the stamping out <>f the crime of rebating, it was discovered that the Sugar Trust was engaged in another kind of .-rime, cheating the government on the docks, which was the case I first re ferred to. That ease was not brought Into my office until Borne months after the dis covery of the fraud it was placed first in the hands of another district attorney, and ii was not until after the first trial of that case had resulted in the defeat of the gov ernment that the cases were transferred to 1.).. to prosecute. They came to me In Au gust, I9M, anil they have been going on until June if this year. They resulted not only In the collection of that $2.134.(X!0 which i have Just enumerated, but they have re suited in the criminal conviction of every living participant In the frauds, so far as any evidence can possibly be collected to show Buch participation. i began with the. man lower down. b<? 7 cause It was the hands of the man lower down t'nt worked the fraud, and that was tiie only evidence we first had; but we worked steadily and persistently, building upon the structure as we _'ot it. building upon that foundation until finally we con victed the pecretan and treasurer of the eompuny and the general superintendent of its r<fii'< r > where the fraud' were, anJ if the president of the company bad not <]!?•: within two weeks of the discovery well, tl".«- evidence and the record show what might have happened to him. Nov. th«.h»* two transactions are my best answer a* to why I did not also prosecute urif'fr th* Sherman law. 1 was pretty busy, and. in the next place, and us « flnHl answer lo whet Mr. Dlx said, I have this to say: He calls my attention to the fad thai Mr. Rarte the receiver of a cer tain trust company in Philadelphia, did himself becln .i private Mult under the Sherman law, which was finally com promised without resn bing ■ final judg ment by the payment, as it is reported. of certain sums of money by the Sugar Trust t" Mr. Carle, the receiver and he i..-ks me why ' didn't t ike the same evl deiii i- which Mr Karl'- had and prosecute tbetM under the Rr"'rmnn law. My answer t.i Hint Is: Never during all thnt time, was Mint testimony «>r »hat evidence brought to m* by Mr Karle. a federal district attorney, us you know, begins prosecutions noon rvld*nee brought to b<m or called to his attention, mid during that time when I was Aiigagpil li the-^e transactions, Mr. Earl* never came near me. I think that Is a sufficient answer. Says He Put Quietus on Parker. Now, to come to his third question. 1 1« asks me why 1 resigned as District Attor ney and thereafter took special retainers to complete some of the sugar work. VVeii. that question is a little belated. •'"•'8«! Parker asked that a short whilo ago. and i made a full statement in the press in an swer to it: and so far as I have been a bio to see Judge Parker, has not uttered a cmrp since on that subject. ■. " . . th The facts were that when I accepted the appointment as District Attorney I re linquished an Income which was W per cent greater than what I was getting ••*■• salary of that office, and I gave up entirely my private practice. I served the govern ment on 40 per c*nt of my former income for nearly three years and a half, an a^on that Income and in that capacity I had com pleted the cases which 1 have 01 *"1" 1 *°, you about to-day. I had tried not only the rebating cases against the Sugar Trust, but I had tried and finished also the most im portant one of the Custom House cases against the Sugar Trust, and at the time when I resigned and desired to go back into private practice It would have been per fectly possible for any successor or mine to have taken up that work and com pleted it. . _ -.»_ I did not leave the government, as Mr Dix asserts, in any difficult position by my resignation. My resignation wa* hand ed to Mr. Taft and was accepted by him with a letter full of the most kindly refer ence to myself and my services; and l ac cepted the retainer at his request and at the request of his Attorney General at a further sacrifice of my own an I r , l l al ( _ pr £: v pects. I have already pointed out in the statement to Judge Parker that during the time when they claim I was setting these enormous fees, the total ™ m n sa . ! 1 n >n J h l^^r 1 got from the government and all otner sources did not amount to as much as I was getting In private practice before I g came District Attorney, and 1™° U ™*£* Mr Dix to ask his advisers. Judge ***"/£ and Mr. Stanchfleld. who represented the trust, whether. in all fairness and in all honesty, they think I was overpaid for beat ing them. To Repeat Questions, Daily. Mr. Stimson then reiterated his ques tions to Mr. Dlx, and said he intended to repeat them every day until election. Over at Ix>ckport there was a noon meeting, at which the theatre was filled. Mr Stimson there spoke considerably about the importance of the barge canal v.*-k to the western part of the state. He said that work was being carried on in a splendid shape under State Engineer Williams, and drew a striking contrast of conditions in the Engineer's office under Williams and when Tammany had control, under Skene. . A brief stop at Middteport gave Mr. Stimson time to shake hands with a group of citizens waiting at the station. At Medina and Albion there were good meetings. Medina raised the roof for Attorney General O'Malley, whose native town it was. Mr. Stimson was sched uled to speak at Holley. but a funeral party was at the station, and all thought of a speech was abandoned. Instead, the candidate shook hands with those who crowded around him until the train pulled away from the station. Brief stops for speeches were made at Spen cerport and Lockport. George W. Aldridge and a large party of Monroe County men boarded the Stimson car Ht the border of Monroe County, and accompanied Mr. Stimson to this city. At the Hotel Rochester there was a dinner for him and an informal reception preceding the meeting. Several additional meetings have been added to to-morrow's schedule. The Stimson expedition will leave this city at 5:55 a. m.. going to Phoenix. Oswego, New Haven. Mexico, PulaFki. L.acona and Watertown for a night rueeting.
