Proclamation by the New Mayor
TO THE PUBLIC
1 am inexpressibly shotted at the neus of Mayor Gaynor's death. It
tomes to me as a stunning blow, and I k,now 1 speak, for the people of this en
tire city when I say that in the death of Mayor Caynor the city of New York
has sustained a loss that it will be hard to repair. For twenty-fioe years Mayor
Caynor has given his services unstintedly to the people of his city, and the re
sults of his work manifest for many years to come. He was a profound
student of the problem of municipal government, and it was the dearest amhi
lion of his lift to reform and improve the conditions as he found them in our
city government. Time alone Will show the value of his labors in this direc
tion. I feel Mayor Gaynor's death as a personal loss. I knew the Mayor
for twenty-five years. My first acquaintance with him began in Brooklyn while
he was practising law, and I had an admiration for him that 1 had for few
men. 1 knew and respected him, and he knew and respected me. My asso
ciation with him in the city government was always of the pleasantest and
most agreeable nature. When I said good-by to him on Wednesday of last
ti eek I little dreamed that I would necer see him again.
1 have ordered the flags on the City Hall and on all municipal buildings
placed at half mast, and lattr in tht day 1 will appoint a committee of citi
zens to take proper action regarding the Mayor's death and to arrange for a
public funeral, if that meets with the approval of Mrs. Caynor.

derful Industry and loyalty to duty, he
won the admiration and gratitude of the
people of the city of New York.
"He was a great lawyer. As a Judge
he was surpassed by no member of our
State or Federal Judiciary, lie was a
man of unusual Intellectual force, excep
tional courage and highest integrity. He
gave the best of his ability to the people
of his native State, who will long treas.
ure the memory of his public service.
"His passing away in the midst of a
Mayoralty campaign recalls the sudden
end of Henry Oeorge. under similar clr
oumstancea. In 107. In the death of
Mayor Oaynor I have lost a friend whom
I have known and admired for many
years."
Secretary of State Bryan : "I am 'Ms

He was a strong man, with u genius for
public life, not only In the sense that
he had ability In the discussion of public

have it in soft roll collar models, in button through effects, and in a new, shapely,
knee-length creation that is all our own. $15 to $38.

models, and in shapelier styles, too; both skeleton coats, buttoning through, and
finished with patch pockets. $25 to $30.

all the thing in early Autumn coat styles, and which we are showing in a range
of clever colors. It's a beauty for value, no less than for appearance, at $25.
