GAYNOR AND WALDO MAY FACE LIBEL Correspondence Made Public by the Mayor Lays Foundation for Suits by Koenig. New York, Sept. 11 Major William J. Gaynor to-day made public correspond ence between himself and Police Com mlssloner Rhlnelander Waldo, which laid the foundation for a libel suit against both the Ma) or and the commissioner. In -a. letter from Mr. Waldo to Mr. Gay- nor, tbe commissioner charges that As sistant District Attorney Morris Koenig. brotl-er of Samuel S. Koenig. president of the Republican county committee, is a member of the Sam Paul association. Both Morris and Samuel Koenig to night denied any connection with the association, which is notorious as a hang out of gamblers and petty crooks of the underworld It Is alleged that Sam Paul, through bis connections as a Tammany henchman, helps to protect these para sites from the law. Morris Koenig an nounced that he would bring either crimi nal or civil proceedings against both the Major and the commissioner, though the Mayor in his reply to Waldo, makes only guarded references to either of the Koenlgs who are named openly as mem bers of the association by Waldo. In order to se that there Is no trick behind the taking of the testimony ot the men connected with the arrest of Sam Schepps at Hot Springs, District Attorney Whitman will go in person to the Southern resort, at the same time that emissaries from the defense of Po lice Lieut. Becker are sent to take the wanted testimony. It was on the excuse ot needing time to get this evidence that Becker's trial was postponed by Justice Eischoff until October 7.

ACCEPTANCE PROVISIONAL Eighteen Nations Signify Intentions of Participating in Exposition. -Mors to Come Later. The British government has left the way open so that should Its dissatisfac tion over tbe Panama Canal legislation continue. It can refuse to participate in the canal exposition at San Francisco In ISIS, it was learned In Washington yes terday. The acceptance of the Presi dent's invitation to participate has been accepted only provisionally by Great Britain, so that It may at any time an- nousce a decision not to take part llil mo cueorauon oi me opening oi tnei canal without breaking any Dledees. While threats of this sort have been made in Great Britain frequently during tne last two months, there Is little ex- pectatlon here that the British govern ment win choose to retaliate in such manner. Still, that government ha left a loophole by which she can easily re- ruse to join In the exposition, and, some quarters, an intention of so doing unless the United States recedes from its position in the matter of canal tolls Is taken seriously. Cauda to Participate. Canada, on the other band, at whose Instance. It Is believed by many, that Great Britain protested against the canal legislation when It was pending In the (Senate, has given an unqualified accept ance ux ins xresioeni s inviiauon u take part in the exposition It has fre quently been stated that Canadian rail road Interests, which are subsidized by the Canadian government, were In the main responsible for tbe British protest against canal legislation. These railroad Interests also control extensive steamship lines. Yet, Canada Is in the exposition now, and, having agreed to participate, there Is small reason to believe that she will withdraw -her given word. As a matter of fact France is the only European country which has given her unequivocal and unqualified acceptance of the Invitation of the United States take part in the exposition. While practically all tbe European nations have made formal declaration of their proba ble participation, none but France has given full .' official acceptance. Great Britain Is tho only ono which has offi cially given a provisional acceptance. Eighteen Countries to Take Part. Of the eighteen countries which have accepted the President's invitation. Great Britain included, all but France. Great Britain, and Japan are countries of the western hemisphere. All the numerous republics of the Americas and Caribbean have great expectations of reaping a profit from the canal, and are fairly leaping over one another In their en deavors to make a good showing at San Francisco. The list of these acceptances Is as fol lows: Bolivia, Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic Ecuador, France, Great Britain (provisionally). Guatemala. Haiti, Honduras, Japan, Mexico, Nica ragua. Panama. Peru, Salvador, and Uruguav. The greatest countries of Sou'h Amer icaBrazil and Argentina hav e nc yet accepted, but there Is no doubt of ti."lr full participation. No apprehensions are felt regarding hardlv any of the nations which have not vet formally accepted.

Hist! lfs Friday, 13th, the Day Age-old superstitions, echoing from out the gay yet parlous days and nights when gods and men trod the bright earth together, and made the high heavens ring with their warrings and wassailings and laughter and loves, mingle In a weird walling to cast a fearsome spell over this Friday, thl.teenth of September. Friday, thirteenth the words thrill with their wild strangeness of uncanny witch ery, the wanchancy call of Bad Luck. Friday mated with thirteen makes this a woeful day In the calendar of the superstitious. x Hangman's day. Devil's day, a time of witchery and unknown powers. Ogers are abroad, evil spirits, wicked ghosts. A day of shuddering doubt, a creepy. chilling day, when graves yawn and shadows stalk the quiet churchyards, as of a mystically moon-lit night. Its dread. may not be lightly laughed away bark!' Laughter is hollow, like an echo from the tomb. The superstition Is too strong it Is an Instinct. It Is so old.

Gibson, the New York lawyer nnde arrest charged with the murder of Ross Menschik Szabo, made the first move In bis own defense here to-night, when ha made the startling statement that the woman who was drowned while boating with him In Greenwood Lake on July IS, and whose body was exhumed la.t Tues day for an autopsy, which showed that stransnilatlon. tint iirrnniir vo h. cause of her death, is not the Rosa Menschik whose mother died In Austria two years ago, and whose brother la now en route to America to assist In his prosecution. He referred to the woman he knew as Mrs. Rltter. The Rosa Menschik Szabo. whose win he filed, making her mother sole heir, is another Mrs. Szabo. he declares, and. of course, the woman represented as Mrs Szabo's mother and whom he re asserted to-day Is still living in New York. Is the one he represented her to be. Opens Up Vital Flair. This shift in the Gibson defense does not relieve him of the charge of murder, but opens up a vital flaw in the case of the prosecution. If he can prove ths prosecution has involved the wrong wo man it will then appear that he did not swear falsely that the woman's mother was living in New York that he did net commit perjury and did not enter into a conspiracy. The authorities declared to-night, how. ever, that Gibson was trying to compli cate the case and that the charges against him would be proven. Gibson maintained his iron nerve to n'ght, giving a straightforward version of the lake tragedy and declaring his belief that he would be discharged after the preliminary hearing. He said he would not need any counsel besides him self. On his way to a cell In the local Jail he said he had not taken the case seriously unta to-day. TAFT ORATORS TRAIL ROOSEVELT J.-IT.
